Ding 78, Higher Levels go Faster!

The exp bar seemed to crawl along slowly when I was in the low 70’s, but the closer I get to 80 the faster it seems to move. I did all of level 76 in about 12 hours (spread out over a few days of course) and finally put my mind to getting the epic […]

WoW Built-in Voice Chat

So recently I’ve been grouping up with some local friends of mine every so often and they’ve decided they don’t like typing. I think it’s great that WoW has a built in voice client, it’s so much easier for the average user. No more setting up Vent or TeamSpeak servers and clients and having to […]
