Achieving Ahead of the Curve: Argus the Unmaker

Today was a good day for me in the World of Warcraft. I got my achievement Ahead of the Curve: Argus the Unmaker by killing Argus in Antorus on Heroic difficulty. That means I also received the awesome mount that goes really good with my transmog. Many thanks to Laurens and the people in his guild who made this possible by boosting me. So that’s one thing to cross of my in-game todo list. Next is to start farming reputation at Argussian Reach and Army of the Light factions. I must admit reaching goals like that was a lot easier when I was without a job. But I don’t have any problems with the fact that it takes me a bit more time as it used to. I still enjoy spending my free time on building towards these goals. Or I could switch to watching TV…. nah just kidding, who watches TV anymore? Click on the read more link below to see a short video of the fight with Argus. Oh and for the real fanatics here are the Warcraftlogs stats.

This is going to change the world… of warcraft

Blizzard announced at Blizzcon 2017 that a new World of Warcraft called Battle for Azeroth expansion will be released somewhere next year. Awesome introduction cinematic, as always. I’m excited! I think most players are excited. Are you excited? Let me know by leaving a comment below.

The video below shows all the previous World of Warcraft Expansion cinematics in chronological order, including the very first one from 2004. That’s the one that marks my introduction to the game when I first started playing in 2006. Back then I had no idea, or couldn’t even imagine that the game would eventually become such an important part of my life in all the years to come, up to this very day. When I watch that first video nowadays, more than ten years later, it sometimes brings tears to my eyes because it instantly takes me all the way back to that period in my life, and I’m just a sucker for nostalgia.

Good news everyone! Blizzard announced that they will also be releasing classic “Vanilla” servers that are going to be like how the game was when it was first released in 2004 before any expansion was released. I’m really excited about this and very curious when we can expect them online. Below is the introduction video shown at Blizzcon 2017 during the announcement of classic realms that shows all the expansion cinematics in reverse as a way to show that we’re going back in time. How’s that for nostalgia?

The community around World of Warcraft is the best community there is. I’m thankful that I became a part of it and feel honored. I love each and every one of you that helped build this international community to what it is today, even the hordies. For the Alliance!!
I have the game, the awesome community and of course mostly my friends from our guild Vliegende Hollanders to thank for all the good times, laughter, social interaction and the great experience as a whole, in the world… of warcraft. A shout-out to all of you out there who who play or have played the game in the past, and who also feel emotionally attached to the World. I love you all, you’re in my heart. GG.

World of Warcraft addons that I like and recommend for Legion

I love the fact that the game World of Warcraft allows and provides the option to use addons. I especially love the ones that let me customize the User Interface to my own liking. I run a reasonable amount of addons and I will list the most important ones in a list below. Some players believe that an experienced wow player (I like to think of myself as one of those) doesn’t need addons to play. And there’s some truth in that of course. But it’s not that I nééd them, I just prefer them because they bring some extra things in to the game that I like. So if you are one of those people, screw you and have fun looking at that same UI for more time to come. So here’s the list of my most important addons.
