WRUP: Bloggers go radioactive


The video goes out to Sarah Pine. Read on to find out why.

The thing about WRUP is that I always want use it like "wrup, yo." Kind of like that old commercial with everyone saying "Wazzzzaaaaap." Just I want to be like, "Hey, team. WRUUUUUUUUUUUP." Does that make me old? I feel old.

What's not old: the Crusader. Still fun. At this point, what are your thoughts on playing a Crusader? And is it time for that sucker to make the leap over into WoW? I don't know what the Crusader would be in Hearthstone because I'm too busy blowing up murlocs. Like you do.

Anne Stickney (@Shadesogrey) I haven't actually had a chance to play a Crusader yet, but I've heard good things. Should it be a WoW class? Um ... I think I'd have to actually make time to play it for a bit before making that call, so ... I have no idea! As for the weekend, it will be spent working on various projects and possibly doing a little valor point capping as well - I got a couple of nice upgrades this week.

Elizabeth Harper (@Faience) FOR THE CRUSADE!

I played a paladin in Diablo 2 and a crusader in Diablo 3, and they give me the sort of gameplay I expected when I first rolled a paladin in WoW. But I don't know that it would work with WoW's game dynamics, which are very different than Diablo's.

Not sure what I'm playing this weekend as I have a backlog of work to get through and I'm going to be talking with Justice Points tomorrow. I'll probably do Hearthstone dailies and might make time to get in some Diablo 3 loot grinding.

Kristin Marshall (@kristin) It's hard to pull me away from my Wizard, so my Crusader is only level 21. But I do love the gameplay so far. As others have said, and from what I've seen so far, I don't think the class would work in WoW.

This weekend is crazy busy for me: Company staying over, fancy dinner plans, a soccer game, and whatever other stuff pops up. I'd really really like to work in a bit of D3 time for the bonus legendary/rift fragment buff!

Matthew Rossi (@MatthewWRossi) The Crusader is basically an amped up hybrid of a prot pally and a prot warrior, so I don't think it would work as its own class in WoW.

As for what I'm playing now, not much. Still working on fiction thing.

Sarah Pine (@ilaniel) I'm in quarantine until Sunday, because I'm radioactive (iodine 131, baby), so video games are a good distraction from the fact that I have to stay at least 6 feet away from my husband at all times. Mostly WoW. Some old SNES games on my emulator. I never beat Seiken Densetsu 3, maybe I'll fire that up again.

I didn't get the D3 expansion, so I haven't played a Crusader, and thus have no opinion on that. I hear it's fun, though!

The weekend is the perfect time to kick back, relax and enjoy some game time. Are you an achievement junkie? Can't get enough raiding? Rolling a new alt? Considering taking the leap into roleplaying? Whatever your favorite way to play World of Warcraft, let us know in the comments what you're playing this weekend!
