Battle for Azeroth – Pre-Patch 8.0: “All The Things I Love”


So excited about the new Patch, inspiration carried me through this! πŸ™‚



“All The Things I Love”


“I love my Soothe and I love my Hibernate

To log in and test them out – I almost couldn’t wait


So many years it has been, since I calmed a beast of my own

Mark of the Wild will still be missed, but I press on – that much is known


I love my side actionbar can now be stacked vertical

So all my toys line up so neat, it’s very practical!


Not to mention my run and walk as the ferocious Cat and Bear

So improved and natural, with so much style and flair


I love how my numbers are smaller and easier to manage

I longed for a stat squish, though I sure miss my bandage


I love how I can be an Orca and a Cheetah at the same time

My Druid heart is happy and find it very easy to rhyme!


I love how you make me look forward instead of going back

I will mend the wounds of my allies – no matter the attack


I love how the passion for World of Warcraft comes shining through

Staff of Blizzard, I salute you, and I hope you already knew


How grateful we are for another story to be told

We promise to stand tall in the chaos, uncontrolled


Thank you for giving us a place to enjoy, immerse and explore

To go on adventures with our friends, we already long for more


A few weeks to go, and the expansion will finally arrive

So let’s all do what me must – for Azeroth to survive!”

  1. I’m excited about having Mind Sear back on my priest. Finally an AOE spell again πŸ˜€
    But right now, I’m waiting for Blizz to fix a few things before I truly can enjoy the pre-patch 😦

    1. That must be welcoming for sure πŸ™‚ Oh, bugs? Are there many? I guess one of the luxuries of having little game time, I just logged on to walk around in cat and bear and Hibernate a few beasts and dragons, and that all worked, so I was happy, hah πŸ™‚

      1. I didn’t encounter many myself, but there was a profession bug and I couldn’t get any cobalt ore on my alt, which was a bit annoying, and some mobs were hitting way too hard after the scaling, but they fixed it today and now I can happily level my alt and profession πŸ™‚

      2. Ooh, those bugs are so weird. I expected the scaling and stat squish to cause trouble though, especially in those “vehicle” quests, that almost always seems to be the case.

      1. Thank you, I guess, I’ll get it for my night elf warrior as a mog, have been looking for a fitting weapon for her, but didn’t think of polearms at all πŸ˜€

      2. There are some great polearms out there, good luck getting it πŸ™‚

        I really cherish how Druids can transmog staffs into polearms.

  2. A nice poem. Soothing (se what I did there?) and comforting admidst the confusion. Well, I feel a bit confused, maybe not others πŸ˜‰
    I have started checking my different classes out. It is a bit confusing. My feeling is my lock got a simpler array of spells, but my hunter and mage got some more. But do not quote me on that, I have not really counted. I did some battlegrounds today. My lock felt markedly squishier, especially against melee. Maybe I should go affliction. Otoh, there will probably be adjustments, good and bad, in the near future, so maybe just play what one likes anyway πŸ™‚

    1. Hehe, I see what you did there. Thanks so much πŸ™‚ Oh, confused? About?

      Yes it feels simpler to me too, but not sure good or bad. We luckily have time to adjust πŸ™‚

  3. Let’s see; I am liking how little there is to do! Some of the grindyness in the game is gone with the loss of gold missions and the conversion of rewards to essences which I don’t need. It’s lazy time to check out my spec and class changes.

    1. Well said, me too. Great idea with no new quests at first. Giving us tome time to breathe and adjust to the new things. Lazy time, I approve of πŸ™‚


  4. Hey there Alunaria! Great post, I’ve been trying to read up on what’s new with this game. I actually recently started playing again – do you have any tips or advice? I’ve played before, but it seems like I forgot everything.

    Also, I hope you don’t mind, but I nominated you for one of these Liebster Blog Awards. Its purpose basically seems to be helping sites that aren’t already huge get more recognition. Someone nominated me, so I’m paying it forward to a few people!

    Here’s the post describing the details: I hope all is well with you!

    1. Hey Jon! Thank you for stopping by πŸ™‚ And thank you for such a sweet considerate nomination. I am truely honored.

      I’m in between hibernating periods during July and August, so you must forgive my absence from time to time – and slow response time. I’ll head over to your site right away and get back to you asap.

    2. Okay; World of Warcraft first – you say, you recently got back to the game – how recently? Which kind of player are you? It’d be a lot easier for me to give you a few tips to get more insight πŸ™‚ Like:

      There was recently a huge overhaul to the levelling process. And a stat squish too. If you are the kind of player who loves to immerse yourself, quest through all the zones and so forth, then this is the perfect time to chill, and level a character to experience it all over again – without the annoying outlevelling a zone half way through it, making all the quests go gray and provide no XP. Now you can level to 60 in most Vanilla areas, for example. And the later expansions tie together, so you can skip a continent and move onto another if you want.
      But if you are another kind of player, who’s all about end game, then naturally, that is not for you πŸ™‚

      If it was me, I’d spend the time to get comfortable with whatever class I plan to take with me to Battle for Azeroth. And do the story lines of Legion. They are so great, well written and captivating. To me, at least πŸ™‚

      Forgetting everything about WoW, if it was a while ago you played, is natural, I think! I did that too. I returned in Legion after a long break of many years. But Legion really caught my attention because of the stories.

      One strong recommendation I have, is to wear blinkers (right word in English?). There is a lot more to do in the game, than there was earlier, and it’s easy to drift off, and forget what you were doing. I tend to have a little list written down, I can look at from time to time, to remind me, what I wanted to do. hah. I imagine, with little kids, that your time to play is also very limited, just as mine is. So all the more important to have a bit of focus, so one feels as if they get things “done”, while also enjoying themselves, if that makes sense? πŸ™‚

      1. Okay, thank you that’s great info! As you suggested, with little kids I have to take my gaming time in bite-sized pieces. For the most part, I’ll quest a little bit and then end up having to leave the computer randomly. I’m definitely not much of an “end game” player because of that. I have a feeling I’ll be doing what you suggested, leveling to see how that all changes. I might tackle to new expansion content with my old favorite character, and explore the old world again with a new level 1. I know what you mean about drifting too! I often forget what I was doing in huge games like this one.

      2. I hear what you are saying, I can easily relate to that too. Your approach seems like a good one πŸ™‚ When I have more time on my hands, I really want to quest through it all again. But I also want to play on the Classic server that will come out. So very excited about that.

        Hah, right? I HAVE to write things down. Sometimes, I look at my piece of paper and go “Oh…Right….Forgot all about that”. Often!

        Wow is really an enormous game today. I guess that’s part of the Classic appeal to me; it’s smaller and does not have all the activities as todays Wow has. Like, Dailies, Weeklys, Calendar schedule, Timewalk, Pet Battles, PvP and WQs, Events, what not.

      3. Oh yeah I read an article about those Classic Servers! Do you know when that is coming out? It sounds really interesting. I would probably try that out as a novelty, but I’m not sure if it’s something I could do long term. There have been so many positive quality of life changes in the game over the years (or decade?), it might be tough. I know I’d have a hard time living without the transmog system!

      4. No announced date yet, but I imagine it will be a while, since they have to do most from scratch. All good things come to those that wait πŸ™‚

        I feel the same way. I will cherish to do all the quests again, all those that got lost from after Cataclysm, experience the music and zones. But I know I will miss things from Current WoW as well. So I think I’ll play both.

        I do imagine though, that there will be quite some hiccups to begin with. Server overpopulation, and so on. I’ll give it some weeks before I dive in, once it launches.

    3. Liebster Blog Award next!

      Again, thank you so much πŸ™‚ Genuinely appreciating your thoughts and nomination, and I am so glad to hear, you enjoy my site on that level.

      Oh, I love the questions on your blog, good to get to know you better there πŸ™‚ Those favorite quotes of yours are truly great.

      Can I ask, how did you go about the nominations? Meaning. Okay, for me; I find it hard to select, who I want to nominate.
      Because I think of those, I wouldn’t be nominating, because I can’t just nominate everyone I want, right? So in choosing someone, I would be not choosing someone else.

      Did you have those thoughts too, can I ask? πŸ™‚ Maybe it seem’s silly.

      I’m a tad torn on my site, because I do not consider it “material” to get any kind of valuable info from. Sure it can be entertaining and a little fun here and there, but I cannot imagine my blog is a place one goes to, to get important info about the game!

      Hm, many thoughts. Hot weather, Chaos. Hah. Bad combination πŸ™‚ I hope I am making sense, and look forward to your response!

      1. These are excellent questions, and I thought some of the same things. My general answer is this – it’s your blog, so it’s your rules! I think the spirit of the award is to help spread the word about sites you enjoy to people who may not already know about them. They have certain “rules” that people seem to somewhat follow. But in my opinion, you can do whatever you like! If it’s two sites or 15, or even if you didn’t want to participate – it’s all good. I just wanted to help promote some people creating fun and interesting content, and this thing presented an opportunity to do it.

        I guess one way to think of it could be, are there some additional sites you follow that your subscribers might also enjoy? Your audience is pretty focused (Warcraft players), so they might like some of the same things you do. And some of the blogs you nominate (if you decide to) may appreciate it, especially if they’re newer blogs or want to grow their following.

      2. Oh, yeah? Glad I am not alone with those thoughts.

        What you are saying make a lot of sense, thank you.

        I like that way of thinking πŸ™‚

        Yeah I probably best stick to WoW related blogs indeed! I found my 11, was it? πŸ™‚ Thanks again, Jon!
