The Daily Grind: Are you a fan of offline-leveling?

The Anvil of Crom: Offline leveling? It's about bloody time

You'll forgive me if I don't devote this week's column to Rise of the Godslayer. Yes it's coming out in two days, and yes I've been playing (and enjoying) the hell out of the beta, but frankly I think I've contributed quite enough to that particular hype machine at this point. Instead, I'd like...
