T'was the Night Before Expac...

About the Author:
Hantevirus has been team lead of Sellswords since Black Rock Foundry days. This is what she does when she’s procrastinating.

‘Twas the night before Expac and all through the guild
The raiders were studying their covenants and builds
Alts had been planned with forethought and care
To prepare for nerfs that might come to bear

Guidewriters writing revisions as they came
So swift and so frequent, in beta is the game?
They updated Wowhead and the Veins of Ice
“Yo Blizzard these changes they really aren’t nice”

And I at my desktop, with cats perched nearby
“Venthyr or Necro?” I mused with a sigh
Bags had been emptied, food had been stocked
All for the push to get Torghast unlocked

When what to my horror filled eyes did appear
Another covenant nerf! Ack! My plan for the tier!
But all will soon settle
Til then we will cope
Castle Nathria awaits,
It’s gonna be dope!

The things I never knew

In honor of World Mental Health Day, we have an anonymous post.

When I started playing MMO’s in my 20’s, little did I know that over two decades later I would still be finding joy, community and friendship in it.  There are simply things I never knew would happen in my life and could never fathom them.  I grew as the gaming community too grew.

Control Your Game, Don't Let It Control You

About the Author:

Kynderia is a former Team Lead and Guild Officer. He has been on several current raiding teams and now plays on Horde side.

14 years. That’s almost half of my life. That’s how long I have been playing this game. I have met countless people, killed countless bosses, and done some amazing things I could never dream of. I built a history for myself that was mine to control, and I wrote my own destiny. There was also a dark side to these accomplishments, and that was letting this game control my life outside of my computer.

Why Vanilla Players Seem to Romanticize the “Good Ole’ Days”

About the Author:

Leayha has been playing WoW since 2006. She joined Eternal Kingdom in 2016 and is our Social Media Director and Director of Community Coordination (guild events and contests). Leayha mains a Resto Druid and, along with being their recruitment officer, raids with Immortal, a mythic raiding team.

I began playing World of Warcraft about three quarters of the way through Vanilla. It was my first foray into an MMORPG and I had absolutely no idea what I was getting myself into. Other than a two year break between the end of Lich King and end of Cata, I have been around since the dark days. The days before flight. The days when 100g was a lot and took time to farm.
