I am flat out at work, so I am going to throw a few things together quickly.
- Last 5 hours in WoW comes full circle
- Twister Nether
- Oceanic Forums
- WoLK Mage Talents and Skills
- Bad Hunter, Bad…
- Food for thought (well reagents anyway)
- My Mage Sucks
Last 5 hours in WoW comes full circle
In a BA Shared Topic, started from one of Matticus’ 20 questions (as picked up by Larisa ), Matticus has given us his “last 5 hours in WoW“. So the topic has come full circle.
He also mentions that the topic gets a guernsey on the latest Twistednether Podcast .. Have you checked them out yet?
I admit I am a late comer to the Twisted Nether podcasts.
- I only started blogging just after they started, and have been engrossed with the print blogs, and thought I had no method of listening to them.
- I only recently got a mobile phone with both storage and mp3 playing capability… it all finally clicked, so I am slowly catching up.
If you haven’t started listening yet.. get into it. They are a great summary of what’s happening in the World of WoW and WoW blogging.
I read that there are now Oceanic forums… not sure how I feel about this… I never get the time (or real motivation) to read the realm forums, so I don’t know if I will be trotting over the check out the realm forums in a hurry.
What I am going to do with this.. dunno really. If against all chances I end up beat testing, then it will probably come in handy.. otherwise I doubt I will put the energy into the theorcraft. Though I guess it probably warrants a trip over to Elitist Jerks to see what they make of it all.
Bad Hunter, Bad…
I was drawn to Aspect of the Girl’s blog for the read on her torturous misadventures with a pug hunter. It brought up many sad memories.
The (otherwise) excellent Pally tank that was rolling on everything – and getting most of it, but quit the party when he lost a roll 1/2 on Curator, only to return to the instance to stop us getting a replacement.
The AFK healer.. also just after Curator. We realised he was on follow, not thowing heals while we hada 1/2 wipe on trash. We gave him 10 minutes of whispers before we gave up and drew some mobs to him while the rest of the raid ported for the night.
The AFK shaman during Attuman.. he had been bagging us for the previous 10 minutes… not just in raid chat, but on trade channel as well. We realised he wasn’t actually doing anything during out attuman fight… Ohh this guy had a bad rep all round.. to the etent he changed his toon name, but was still caught out (noticed he hadn’t changed his Vent name…. lol)
Food for thought (well reagents anyway)
WoWInsider’s Forum post of the day: Table plz, a discussion about how mages feel about creating their tables, time and time again.. heaps of comments… I haven’t gotten through them all (a maybe never will).
I must admit I tend to be conservative on the use off my reagents. Not because I can’t afford them, it’s just the space they take up in my bag… if they stacked in the 100′s, I would create a table for each toon in the raid. So I tend to create one at the beginning, and maybe later in the raid, if there is a need. My general experience is that if someone joins the raid late, we can scrounge up some from those who grabbed them with no real intention of using them. Arcane Brilliance I am happy to lay out every 45 min, or after a wipe, but in between I tend to go with Arcane Intellect.
Actually it’s really Pallies that I feel sorry for….
What about you?
I just thought I would point out this blog. If there is one thing I love about it (and there are more things), it is the Top “My Mage Sucks” forum posts that are brought up. I mean Blue posts are all well and good… but I like to see the sucky ones occasionally.
Anyway.. I will see if I can knock something more meaningful up over the next couple of days… maybe try working on that warlock twinking series…
Gnomer and Out!
