Apparently I’m in the Beta

So I got home at the end of the summer to find out I was selected for the Warlords of Draenor Beta. Cool. Wish they had sent an email though. Not that I would have had the time to play any sooner.

Anyways.

So after a few false starts (lots of maintenance) I finally fired up the beta to find…myself overwhelmed. Keep in mind that I haven’t played really since summer of 2013, school and all that.

The first order of business was to check out that whole ore thing.There was like 400 of the new ore on the Auction House. And there wasn’t a buy out option. So, on that note, if anyone has any of the stuff laying around, I’m going to be trying to get my hands on some to do some number crunching, so if you want to help, drop me a line.

Next I went to check out these garrisons everyone has been raving about. Luckily when you start a character on a level 100 realm on the beta is plops you right there, nice and easy.

I probably laughed harder than I should have at “Garrison Ford” but it was late, everything is funnier past midnight.

By the looks of it they’re not all set up yet because right now Ford (the garrison supplier, not the drunken crack smoking tumour riddled mayor of Toronto) lets you cheat and just throws your first couple of upgrades at you, and gives you a bunch of free stuff.

I was a bit overwhelmed to be honest, this garrison is a lot more complicated than my farm back in Pandaria. I decided to not take a crack at it yet, I’m going to get some sleep now, and then poke around this whole beta thing this weekend.

Anyone have any suggestions or requests?

    Delighted you’re back. Please talk about garrison complexities and choices, for those of us not diving into the beta

    […] promised when I posted that I was in the Beta, I’ve been doing some snooping around to see what’s what and give us a peak at what to expect […]
