A Random Dungeon Finder Solution

A Random Dungeon Finder Solution

There is no denying it, The Dungeon Finder tool has been a great way to find people to run dungeons with. It is a great way to farm [Emblem of Triumph] and get geared in a relatively short period of time. Great for making gold too! Perfect for casual players, and players still leveling up. [...]

85 Down, 15 More to Go!

I’ve been collecting mounts for awhile now, trying to get 100 for the [Blue Dragonhawk Mount] you get from the Mountain o’ Mounts Achievement.

The Tuna Resurrection

The Tuna Resurrection

As I’ve said before, I had been occupied recently, and my time on Azeroth had diminished to practically nothing. I haven’t raided or pvp’d for over a month, and had only signed on to do a couple achievements for the new Pilgrim’s Bounty holiday. As an achievement-aholic, I would have normally jumped on this holiday [...]
