Well another Monday, another 441 posts to read in my rss feeder… still I will take more pleasure in that than many things.
OK, so some things on my mind.
- Would you like to contribute to my Warklock twinking series?
- I thought this was a Mage blog…
- Out of the blogging closet
- The Blogging Guild
- Friday Prince showdown
- Thoughts on our Mage Spec War
So I am about 1/2 way though my epic Warlock Twink guide, and I have realised that I still haven’t finished off my twink and received any practical experience in WSG. Now while all the theory on how to prepare your twink is great, some practical input on how to play it would be better.
What I am looking for:
- Tips on playing the Lock, spells, Pets and strategies in general.
- Can be in the form of either:
a) An entire blog post/guide or
b) Misc tips
You will of course get full credit for your post or bits & pieces, so drop me a line.
I thought this was a Mage blog…
Weird thing when I was looking back through my statistics, of the top 5 posts, 3 of them are about Warlocks.
- Twinking your level 19 Warlock: Part 1.
- LFT: (Looking For Tool) Mage gear comparison spreadsheet
- Twinking your level 19 Warlock: Part 2.
- My Last 5 hours of Wow – The Gnomeaggedon Cometh
- Twinking your level 19 Warlock: Part 3.
I expect the bit of link love from Mystic Chicanery helped there, thanks for that!
But what strikes me even stranger is the one Mage post in the top 5, hasn’t even received a comment, let alone a suggestion or offer of help. Ahh well… maybe I am the only one that wants gear listed out in that way.
Out of the blogging closet
I came out of the blogging closet on Friday night, and told one of my close mates about my blog.
- His 1st reaction: “Man, that must take a lot of effort”
- His 2nd reaction “Resto 4 Life is a great site”
- His 3rd reaction (following day): “Resto 4 Life has so much great info…”
I guess I should forgive the Tree hugger for hugging trees….

Friday Prince showdown
And in a bit of personal WoW news, we finally downed Price on Friday night, thanks to the strategy over at Fireball Spam.
I must say as a Gnome, when you are all piled up on that pillar, it brings back the Whack-a-Mole healing days. I couldn’t see anything other than the other toon’s underwear, and my various UI bits & pieces (which will never be revealed because it is such a mess). So although I knew Price had gone down, I didn’t get to see his overly dramatic death spin (I am sure he does a ham-acted death spin).
Nothing dropped from him for me.. but I picked up the Ring of Recurance off the Chess Event.
Ohhh and only one DC… just after Attuman, so I expect it was a real one… We pressed on without him through 2 bosses (the timing suggested to us PC difficulties rather than disgust), but he never returned.
Thoughts on our Mage Spec War
No, I am not wavering in my determination to bring the power of Fire to the fore, but I when I read this blog post at WI, there was one pararapgh (or series of them really) that stood out for me.
So my recommendation is this: create the character you want to play. If you want to play an Arcane Mage, then come level 10, start putting points into the Arcane tree. People will tell you you’re making leveling more difficult for yourself because the tree just isn’t very good for it. They’re right. But who cares? Deal with it. Get to know the character, get to love it. If you don’t love the character by level 30, delete it. You’ll never have the personal attachment to it that you’ll need to enjoy it long-term. If you do, keep at it, learn to play it well and learn how to gear it.
Anyway, enough for today…
Gnomer and Out!
