A few weeks ago, Navimie visited our old blogs and suggested that we should write a joined one. Her idea made its way and that’s how The Brutes is born. To thank her for inspiring the creation of our new home, we have written a story in which she is featured. As usual, it is filled with a large dose of (dubious) sense of humor and a pinch of ego-centrism. You can read the story here.

This blog won’t be updated anymore, instead come follow our adventures at The Brutes ;-)

Some people try to get as many achievements done, others are taking a break, everybody has his own way to get ready for the release of Warlords of Draenor…

Each launch of expansion has been a pain to me, not that I don’t enjoy it but it’s the time to do the thing I hate the most in RPGs: choosing which class to play first.
For me, being ready for WoD means knowing which toons I’ll be playing and getting them ready for the big day, I don’t wanna be leveling a new alt when everybody is enjoying the new content.

I know, it’s a bit late to start talking about an event that happened last thursday, but that’s the kind of luxury you can afford when you write a blog and not in a news website… The truth is that, if I would have posted right after the stream, I would have used way too many superlatives… Now I’ll use it only once and I’ll do it right now: Amazing!

10questions

I started playing World of Warcraft in April 2006, so for me it’s more like 8 years… Nevertheless, I’m glad to be part of something as awesome as WoW and I find alt:ernative’s project a great way to celebrate the anniversary of the greatest MMORPG of all times. So here we go:

1. Why did you start playing Warcraft?
I needed a game for my Easter holidays of 2006… We were about to have 2 weeks at home and we were stocking up on comic books and video games. I thought “why not giving WoW a shot?” After 10 minutes in the game, I knew that it would be different. Not only did the game filled my holidays, it gave me 8 amazing years.

2. What was the first ever character you rolled?
Ok horde friends, don’t be mad at me! It was a Night Elf druid (ouch! Not the face, please). I wanted a character that could do a lot of different things like melee, heal and cast spells. I often played as a paladin in games like Diablo, I wanted something different, something more “nature” than “divine”. But why a Night Elf? In that time druids could only be Tauren or Night Elf,… To be honest, I didn’t give it much of a thought, Taurens seemed too big, that was all.

Precious

I’d been raiding ICC back in LK with my resto druid every week and I never had the chance to get Precious’ Ribbon. Yesterday, Precious finally dropped his damn ribbon, it motivated me to go on with the run and see how far I could solo ICC 10… At level 90, with an ilvl of 540, I didn’t encounter any “firepower” issue. However, as a SV hunter, a few fights required some special tactics.

I don’t intend to write full guides but I found it boring to have to read 5 different guides (which were mostly written for DKs) just to get passed a few tricky fights. Here is a compilation of the things to know if you want to solo ICC 10 with a SV Hunter.

Thanks to the Wowhead profiler, we can see what our characters will look like in Warlords of Draenor. I’m pretty happy with the new looks of Gamrok. My apologies in advance to all the ladies of Azeroth… Such an awesome piece of Orc, he’ll certainly break a few hearts on his way, no harm intended ;-)

An adventure of Gamrok – The sexiest Orc in Azeroth.

It was a beautiful autumn morning. I was crossing Elwynn forest to gank low levels try my new chopper. Everything was back to normal, Garrosh was about to be sentenced for the crimes he had committed, the inns were full of rumors about everything and nothing and I was wonderful again, riding my bike like the awesome wild Orc that I am.

I had heard a disturbing story at the tavern last night, while I was getting tanked on cheap ale eating but I didn’t pay much attention. It is said that some human mage is wandering the forest, ambushing males of all races and taking advantage of them. But you know how drunken folks are, they would tell the most bizarre stories just to get some attention.

Awesome the way I am, I really wouldn’t need to get caught by some crazy lady just to get laid. After all, they don’t call me “the sexiest Orc in Azeroth” for nothing. I just happen to be a bit in a low point at the moment. Nothing to worry about.
