WoW Addon to Remind You to Change Gear

With the addition of War Mode in World of Warcraft, I always wear PvP gear when out and about. This has the unfortunate side effect of me forgetting to change into my PvE DPS gear when entering an instance, especially a Mythic+, where you cannot change your gear after you begin.

Neverwinter MMO’s Trickster Rogue Skills & Feats

As my three avid fans already know, I generally always play the Rogue stealth class in every game. Obviously I will toy with other classes, but “Sprawl” is always a Rogue, and in Cryptic’s Neverwinter MMO, which just went open beta, things are no different.

The game is in open beta, with no more character wipes scheduled, which essentially means the game has been released with a bunch of bugs still present. For the most part, these bugs aren’t game breaking, although a few can be frustrating at times.
