5.4 Released and Moving on from WoW

og-image-siege-of-orgrimmar-garrosh-hellscream5.4 has shown up on live servers and from what I’ve read, it seems like people are loving it.  I was super impressed that Blizzard managed to keep the new Warchief a secret prior to the release of the content.  Awesome job Blizz!  There are lots of quality of life changes that were made this patch and where the expansion goes from here I don’t know.  This is sort of the “end” of the storyline I think, so anything further should be build up for the next expansion pack.  What that is and what it will be about is anyone’s guess!

 

 

 

smite-thumbnailOn a personal note, I canceled my subscription to WoW last month and haven’t looked back thus far.  I’ve been playing SMITE, which is a 3rd person, over the shoulder MOBA similar to games like League of Legends.  It’s Free to Play (but you have to purchase gods to play, 29.99 for all current and future gods) and is a lot of fun.  It’s a different feel that an MMO, but if you like battlegrounds/arenas in WoW but hated the tedium of gearing up/leveling through new content, or grinding out new classes to max level, then you might like SMITE.  Head over to smitegame.com and check it out.  I’ll be adding a subsection for the game here, as well as some forum stubs for it.  If you’re looking for something different and enjoy PVP or other MOBAs, you might want to check it out!
