It Would Almost be Easier to Start Fresh

WoWScrnShot_111815_225820

So last night I fired up World of Warcraft for the first time in many months. Between school and then leaving my desktop in a storage unit over the summer, I haven’t really had a chance to play, nor an urge until last night. I must admit that any time I come back from such …

World of Warcraft back over 10 Million Subscribers

This week Activision-Blizzard had something called an Earnings Call, and while I won’t pretend to understand exactly what that is (other than an opportunity to gloat about how well they’re doing), there’s one interesting tidbit of information that stuck out to me: World of Warcraft has over 10 million subscribers again. This reminded me of …

WoW Insider is Dead, Long Live Blizzard Watch

2015-02-04-19.51.40.png

So unless you’ve been living under a rock this past week or so, you’ve undoubtedly heard that AOL shut down WoW Insider. The news was not taken well, and even got WoW Insider trending on Twitter. Good news is that a lot of the crew that brought us WoW Insider has started a new site, …

An Interesting Development

So there was an interesting announcement out of Blizzard yesterday, apparently they’re going to be releasing some names that have been parked with old characters. Specifically any characters that have not logged into the game since 13 November 2008 will have their names forfeited letting anyone snap them up once 6.0.2 hits live. I know …

Warlords of Draenor and the World of Warcraft Gold Survey

So I realized something this week, the release of WoD is going to clash with my annual gold survey. The release is set for November 13th, and I know I usually have the survey right before this, but 6.0 is going to land before that, and that’s going to screw up some of the numbers …

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 …

Europe Bound

It seems I’ve been doing more life updates than actual WoW posts here lately. Probably because I’ve stopped playing. Again. So I’ve mentioned this on Twitter already, but I figured I’d mention it here as well. I’m going to be working in Belfast (Northern Ireland) this summer! Also going to be spending ~week in the …

The Free Character Boost Dilemma

Character-Status-2014-03-11.png

So apparently “dilemma” has two m’s in it, I can’t believe I’ve gone my whole life so far without typing or writing “dilemma” before. Well, I suppose I might have wrote it but spelt it wrong. So I’m in a bit of a pickle, the level 90 boosts have come and I am completely unprepared. …

I have a Tumblr Now

I decided to see what this whole Tumblr thing is all about so I decided to start my own (Tumblr) blog. You can find me at TheTeetotallerEngineer.tumblr.com This won’t have anything to do with gold making or WoW (in general), it’s going to be more of a person blog, and a place for me to …

2.8 Million Daily Trades

So most people have already seen that Blizzard yesterday released quite an interesting info-graphic on World of Warcraft. It’s neat to see some of the numbers from the official source, instead of player gathered data. The info-graphic has all the information you’d expect, such that over 100 million people have played World of Warcraft (well, …
