An Apology

March 24, 2011

So after an extremely long while, the Seasonal Raider is back! What follows is two things: An apology/explanation and also a preview of what is to come.

Right then. The main reason for the lack of posts over the last few weeks months is that I have been very busy with various things, let me run through them for you:

  • Trip to Ecuador – Staying in Quito for a few days then going into the Amazon to live in a lodge without any so-called ‘luxuries’. Absolutely incredible!
  • Trip to Iceland – Studying geographical things for a week. Less fun.
  • Upper 6th year (senior year), with my final International Baccalaureate exams coming up in three weeks, I’ve been studying over the last three months. Very little fun.
  • Playing (field) hockey for the varsity team, training for the Bath Festival, which is this weekend. Great fun.
  • Also Starcraft 2 and Minecraft have taken up most of my gaming time.


Luckily the college I applied to accepted me as an early decision candidate so I haven’t had to do all of the application stuff recently. So once all of this stuff is done, I can get some solid blogging on the site (and of course play more wow).

So what can you expect from the Seasonal Raider in the near future?


  • More regular posts! This is the most important feature from my point of view and probably the readers’ as well. I hope to get out a post a week, at least a post every two weeks of good quality writings for the readership.
  • During the wow seasons I’ll be posting summary posts of what I get up to on my various characters. Over the next few weeks I’ll be finishing up with school in preparation for Easter break with the spring wow season starting around the 4th of April. So look out for those posts from then all the way up to the end of April / beginning of May.
  • I’m also looking at a few ideas for quick, short posts that can be prepared quickly as back ups or to boost content a bit.


I will now go and prepare a post that is actually about wow and not about how I do too many things with my time.



Ding level 80!

April 28, 2010

I recently got my Paladin to level 80 which is awesome. This comes a day before the (extended) spring raiding season came to a close (thanks to the Volcano over in Iceland) so it was very close. Seeing as I will be flying back to school today, I’ll probably not be posting anything until I get back into the rhythm of school life when I will write a post about my Paladin most likely. We’ll have to see how being at school affects the blogging and whether I need to do something about it. So see you in a few days!


So I received this topic from Windsoar over at Jaded Alt.


A seasonal raider is a person who spends a large period of time away from the game yet still plays in endgame PVE. This is probably somewhere in-between casual and hardcore in theory, meaning you play a lot when you can then hardly at all (or not at all) at other times. This is often seen among students as their studies interfere with gaming.

Inaugural post

March 22, 2010

Just as a journey begins with a single step, so a blog begins with a single post.

Welcome to the first ever post of The Seasonal Raider. In this blog I will talk about things in wow that interest me such as leveling alts, casually going through endgame, messing around with friends/guildies and so on. Also expect to see my take on any important (or silly) wow news just in case anyone cares agrees. So! once again, welcome and enjoy your stay here.

See ya!
