“Vitalit, we’re all ready to go over here, brew your coffee and let’s get to work,” Raenes captained, as he submitted the $14.99 Game Time charge, confirming the 30-day WoW gaming period.
It’s official: the gang is back in Azeroth!
After the long hiatus, the cuckoo clan of Raenes, Vitalit and Noob in Chief have returned to Azeroth to complete their quest to level 110..scratch that, level 120*. Per the release of Battle for Azeroth (dubbed ‘B4A’ to this group), both Dwarf brothers have grown exasperated of the myriad of reviews and glowing user feedback from the latest WoW expansion, and agreed it was time to take advantage of the extended Labor Day weekend to come back to WoW. However, there is one obvious and inauspicious observation that is impossible to not notice.
Where is Vitalit the Hallowed??
Answer: doin’ it solo. This is the first time the Dwarf brothers have played WoW remote, meaning, the threesome are not together gaming for the first time within the B2A tenure. The group usually converges on the “war room” to game, in one room together, slamming coffees, sharing jokes and singing to their favorite rock music in unison. This time around, rather than the traditional jovial and dynamic brother Vitalit sitting across from Raenes, crackling bits and hollering “Fight night!” during battles, a phone had to be used as the vehicle of communication between the two brothers and Noob in Chief. Despite the atypical circumstances, the ‘the-show-must-go-on’ attitude prevailed.
Meanwhile, Raenes and Vitalit scaled Warlords of Draenor at an impressive pace. Whether it was the urgency to advance to B4A or the potency of the the cold brew coffees, the Dwarf brothers utilized their Ango’rosh Crusher comrades to conquer the many Gorebound Demonguards, leading to the effortless slaying of Mongrethod.
From the sidelines, Noob in Chief watched in awe as Raenes and Vitalit pilgrimaged through the plains and valleys of Nagrand, eradicating waves of Leatherhide Clefthoofs with no regrets, paying no mind to the species’ path to extinction. The brothers’ additional lack of sympathy toward Porkchop, The Burninator, and Roakk the Zealot during the Ring of Trials displayed that they meant business, only focusing on the mercenary task at hand: to DING 100. As the night came to a close, the Dwarf duo freed Lantresor of the Blade, in-turn dinging 99 in the process, one step closer to the much-awaited Legion zone.
Gameplay ceased for the night not with late-night Whataburger taquitos or honey butter chicken biscuits, but gentle and gratifying “Goodbyes” via phone, contrary to normal WoW sessions.
The next day presented a new horizon waiting to be confronted, of which once seemed a distant asymptote was now a attainable target: DINGING 1-0-0.
Ironically, the Labor Day holiday was full of progress and hard work progressing through Nagrand. On a day typically reserved for rest and leisure, the Dwarf brothers endeavored through much strife and contentious effort to reach the Gates of Grommashar, met with the inevitable battling of Garrosh Hellscream, and dinging 100 in the process.
With Nagrand and Warlords of Draenor in their rear view, Raenes and Vitalit were more motivated than ever to reach their goal of hitting 120, which is now in their cross hairs.
“Vitalit, before you go into Legion, download the ‘Immersion’ add-on, you are going to want to actually read and understand what’s going on in Legion…trust me,” directed Raenes, as he broke soil on Broken Isles.
