Are you concerned about getting spoilers?

Heads-Up: I'm trying to be as vague as possible when I touch the area of the story and will not talk about the actual content! When the latest piece of the Living Story was released last Tuesday, I knew I would not have the time and patience to go through it in one go. On … Continue reading Are you concerned about getting spoilers?

Asura home instance: before and after personal storyline

We were curious to see how many things change in the home instance once you are done with your personal storyline. Flummi, my mesmer, is the only character that is through with her story so far, so I used hers to see what's in there. I then created a new asura with exactly the same … Continue reading Asura home instance: before and after personal storyline

It's time for another "Ask Nerdy Bookahs". We have looked at the questions in the search terms that led people to our blog for which we know we do not have fitting entries and we're trying to answer those questions now.

GW2: Sea of Sorrows

We have been waiting for a long looooong time and it's finally here! The book arrived today and thankfully, I had a short day at work. So I sat here waiting for the post to arrive and when it didn't, I went to look for it (they sometimes deposit it at our "safe spot" without … Continue reading GW2: Sea of Sorrows

Bookahneer’s Geekwatch (March 2, 2012 – Asura Edition)

Just one little thing today: Al'Ellisande from Wartower did a lore interview with Jeff Grubb about the Asura. Go here to listen to it. That's 44 minutes of Asura-Goodness! :) We're only at 08:00 but it's just as it always is when ArenaNet's lore writers talk about the story: Fascinating and very interesting. We always … Continue reading Bookahneer’s Geekwatch (March 2, 2012 – Asura Edition)

Pandaren belong to WoW as much as orcs do!

As I've previously written here, I was sure that pandaren are a possibility in WoW because they are NOT forbidden in China. So yesterday, Blizzard announced their next expansion Mists of Pandaria and that's when the shit hit the fan... apparently. I've seen it, heard it, read it in so many places. How dare Blizzard … Continue reading Pandaren belong to WoW as much as orcs do!
