ALT:ernative: On Days Like These


The Godmother at ALT:ernative: Last week, we set the 5 Man Instance to rights.

I think we need to throw both models out of the window and set Daily Hubs all around the game world, by re-using Capital Cities. I’m not just talking about those on Kalimdor either, let’s have our Dailies in Shatt and Dalaran too.

There are many different types of quests to do from Straw Berry: . . . read full article
