Every week, just at the start of the weekend, we catch up with the WoW Insider staff and ask them, “What are you playing this week?” — otherwise known as: WRUP. Join us to see what we’re up to in and out of game — and catch us in the comments to let us know what you’re playing, too!
When I send the WRUP email out to the staff each week, I like to present the team with a bonus question in addition to simply asking them what they’re doing. Sparking that extra bit of conversation is fun, but sometimes it’s hard to come up with a quick question. This week I skipped the bonus topic, merely asking the staff to be extra verbose to make up for it. Instead, they decided to shout random food names. So … have fun with that in the comments.
Alex Ziebart (AlexZiebart): Finally restarted raiding this week, so this weekend will have a few hours of tackling the Conclave of Wind mixed in with my usual questing and milking everybody of their gold on the auction house via enchanting materials and glyphs. I also picked up Oblivion during the Steam sale and have been playing that a bit. I played both Fallout 3 and Fallout: New Vegas and was impressed by their potential but found the actual games to be pretty bad. I’m enjoying Oblivion a lot though, which is odd considering it’s Fallout in Fantasyland. I find it far more compelling than anything in the two Fallout games I’ve played. Eh.
Anne Stickney (@Shadesogrey): Raiding! The guild has started 25s in earnest now. As someone who spent vanilla raiding Blackwing Lair among others, Blackwing Descent is fascinating. I love how the trash drakes are nods to the original BWL drake trio. I can’t wait to go to the Throne of the Four Winds — not because I’m looking forward to the fights, but because that zone and Vortex Pinnacle are about the most breathtaking things I’ve seen in this game to date.
