VIDEO GAMES: My Thoughts on World of Warcraft 5,4

A Nightmare month after the death of the fan in my HP Pavilion G6 (less than a year old apparently this fault is pretty well documented on the Internet) and I’m still waiting for it to be fixed though that is down to the fact that I just got paid not any fault with the repair shop. To say I’m a little twitchy about being away from WoW would be understated it has though given me time to do some reading and clear up some misconceptions I had.

The first thing that I sorted out was the Connected Realms feature which I and a lot of others thought that would be launching with 5.4 but that is not the case it actually will be launched AFTER 5.4 with no real timeline on that. I would put Connected Realms as one of the top 5 ranked features that I was looking to. I always tend to stay away from the changes to spells and stuff as that really only matters after the launch.

I am looking forward to the catch up stuff for the legendary as to be honest those initial drop rates of Sigils were KILLING me something like 7 weeks of LFR without getting the 10 and 10. Before the fan died I was 17 and 9 so hopefully it should be over soon once I get my laptop back.

One thing I hope that the Connected Realm thing might deal with is the ridiculous ilvl requirements that we get on the trade channels 515ilvl for a heroic scenario, that is pretty much the level of current Normal gear and so over the top it was ridiculous. I was running HC scenario with ilvl 480 with no problems and I was hardly being boosted by the other two. Some of the lesser run scenarios can be a problem because they are just plain weird but they are certainly not DPS checks.

Anyway I can’t finish this WoW post without remarking on the awesomeness of that 5.4 trailer, it was definitely worth waiting for and went someway to reigniting my passion for WoW though that was probably aided by the fact that I haven’t been able to play for more than a month.
Questions For You:

11.       Do you like the idea of Connected Realms or not?
22.       What size of realm are you on?
33.       Does the Legendary chain feel grindy or too RNG?

Answers in the comments. Much appreciated.
