Thunderfury change in 1.12

Thunderfury change
Thunderfury, Blessed Blade of the Windseeker will receive a nice change. It will no longer be a mainhand only weapon and you will be able to wield it in offhand. The change has been confirmed on the US Public Test Realm Forum.

Personally I do not understand the hype about this change since the sword is rather rare and there is quite a number of guilds out there that have not gotten the necessary drops in 1 year of weekly Molten Core raids.

Lack of updates

Sorry for recent the lack of uodates. After I left Blizzard Entertainment I was forced to to develop my patience in order to bear the bureaucracy of the French and German authorities.

Currently I moved to Pirmasens, the town where I grew up. Its beatufully located in the south western part of Germany, close to the french border. There is a lot of forest, castles and sandstone rocks everywhere. The financial power of the area is quite low, so its hard to find a job.

I am focussing on finding a job a little further north, close to Mainz and Wiesbaden, two federal state capital cities. The rural area is really nice and peaceful and the economic aspects promise a lot.

Ask the WOW Developers!

World of Warcraft Stratics has published answers by the developers to various Questions. „Does a higher skilled fisherman(woman) catch fish faster than a someone of lower skill? Or maybe higher skill has a higher chance of catching better fish?“. You can find the answer and more here.
