Legion Hunting Lodge First Look

YouTuber Song Zee post what looks to be an early data-mined looked at the Hunter Class Hall coming in Legion. It’s beautifully rustic and serene. The architecture is Elven and is similar to the Hunting Lodge is Loch Modan.

This should by no means be considered the final product, as things tend to change in Alpha/Beta, but this is an excellent first iteration.

So You Wanna Be a Gnome Hunter?


You are uncommonly good looking. You know what is the best pet for the DPS. You despise the other support classes and question whether they’re truly needed as you take down Drov the Ruiner, Tectus and Oregorger by yourself. Your bank is filled with ranged weapons of every variety. Your stable is loaded with the most awesome companions from every corner of Azeroth and beyond. Yet, despite all of this, you find that your life as a Hunter is incomplete.

Maybe you have a soft spot for the little guy, or just enjoy the plight of the underdog? Perhaps you want to experience the thrill of knowing your companions can swallow you whole or trample you underfoot?

For 11 years, you’ve been told that you’re too short for this ride, but no more because in Legion you’ll finally get to be a Gnome Hunter.

Of course, Hunters are so awesome that they’ve been playing as gnomes for years now, this will just make it more official. A great move on Blizzard’s part as Hunters can now be played by every race in the game.

Big Changes for Hunters?

I’m getting ready to start day two of my first Blizzcon experience. Plenty of recaps of all the Blizzcon action can be found on MMO-Champion and other places.

I find that it’s much easier to cover Blizzcon when you’re sitting at home with the Virtual Ticket than it is to do so while you’re here. Much of that has to do with the fact that when you’re here, you’re running to get from place-to-place, or grab a bite to eat or running into imaginary friends who are now real.

I did want to pass on a few thoughts on Hunters. Nothing has been officially revealed. It could happen at the game systems panel, and I believe that class blogs will be coming on Sunday.

In talking with people, it sounds like Hunters are in a for a major overhaul in Legion. I’m talking all three Hunter specs and not just Survival here.

When I played the Legion demo, I rolled a level one Dwarf Hunter. I noticed that there was an awesome new Bear model and that Cobra Shot was instant and no longer generated Focus. It sounds like that’s is just the tip of the iceberg for changes.

Nothing I’ve been told is ready for prime-time, but I hope it gets revealed soon. All I can say is that it’s feeling like Hunters will be changing on a scale of Cataclysm this time around in Legion. Whether that’s good or bad remains to be seen.

My Favorite Gun


There are lots of guns in the game, and I have quite the collection on Darkbrew. There are many that I like, but there is one model that stands out above the rest, and… and IT’S HORDE ONLY!

It’s Fezzik’s Autocannon/Widebarrel Flintlock/Spare Gunship Cannon. Fezzik’s Autocannon is no longer obtainable. It’s the Horde equivalent to the BRK-1000. You can get the other versions from Trial of the Crusader and the Horde intro question in Mists of Pandaria.

It’s a very simple weapon – A gunship cannon chained to a couple of planks of wood. I love this model, but I hate that it’s Horde only. In fact if you create a Horde toon and then change factions, the gun will convert to the Alliance equivalent.

It’s simple, crude and I so want this on my Dwarf. That’s my favorite gun, what’s yours?


Bracing for Blizzcon


Earlier this week an unconfirmed version of the Blizzcon schedule was released. It’s been taken off of the official web-site, but I believe it’s still lingering about the mobile app.

What’s important about the schedule is that it reminds me that Blizzcon is less than a month away, and I’m going to be there!

Yes, I will finally be attending my first Blizzcon ever and I can’t wait. The panels and information that will be presented are normally what I care about, but this time they are just icing on the cake. This Blizzcon is all about meeting people that I have been gaming and podcasting with for many years now. It’s about turning my imaginary friends into real friends.

The big event for me is the Warcraft Hunters Union meetup. It is currently planned for Friday evening from 10 pm – 1 am. I don’t know if a venue has been selected, but imagine we’ll just take over the Hilton bar and claim it as our hunting lodge for the evening.

Like many Hunters, I will be sporting this fabulous T-Shirt designed by Night-Elf Hunter @ZoeZazu.


Good friends and good games, that’s what Blizzcon will be about this year.
