Inner City Over-crowding

One of the refreshing things about Cataclysm is the return to life of the capital cities. I remember the days of “unknown entity” in Ironforge in Vanilla and the lag that was also in Shattrath. But with Wrath we were assured that the no fly zone would help prevent the lag in Dalaran. Sadly even Dalaran was way too small to play host to all the citizens of Azeroth without causing…

Server Last: All about Beer Kill the Lich King.

Tonight the boys and girls from All about Beer, the guild of friends that I house my ‘lock with managed to kill the Lich King. Sure, to many this is no real achievement, but for a small group of very casual folks its a big deal and it was done in gear that would qualify us as a strict 10 man group and many people don’t get to do that.
