We’ve had about 10 weeks in Firelands. During Tier 11, we had 6 months. Doesn’t 10 weeks seem a bit short to you? But I guess if they want to keep up with their expansion release cycle for one a year, it has to be this way. The next question to ask is how long are we going to have Firelands for before 4.3 comes out. I think we’re going to see clips of 4.3 stuff during BlizzCon (Late October) and then the patch itself will come out right after it. We’ll find out how nerfed everything is going to be now. I can’t help but look at the stark contrast between the amount of time we had to work on this content compared to tier 11. Some of us are lamenting because of the lack of time and others are ecstatic because it’ll free up more of the game for them.

I promise, I’m not getting burned out or anything. I just go through these phases where I hibernate for a bit. It gets difficult at times to come up with new blog topic ideas. Every time I come up with an idea, I realize that I’ve written about it last year, the year before or at some point on some different site. While I don’t mind revisiting certain topics every so often, the trick is to do so from a different angle or some way which adds additional value.

To avoid blogging burnout about WoW, I’ve turned to blogging about… League of Legends! Similar in vein to this blog, it’s aimed at helping newer players get into the game. I’ll also be detailing my experiences into going from a casual LoL player into a slightly more competitive one. I’m also giving away an Arctic Warfare Caitlyn skin.
