Two Buddies finally catch up
Onyxia was our objective (more…)
Currently, as I write this, running some old world raids.
Onyxia and AQ20 down already.
We picked up a 72 DK for the night…
He’s totally owning me on the Damage Meters!
Who says DKs are OP?
Might keep him I think…
Gnomer and Out!
So a week ago I embarked on the long, long daily quest grind to get Exalted with the Sons of Hodir.
There was only one reason for doing so, and it had nothing to do with the reported excellent quest line, daily gold gains, or even the quiet chuckle at the innuendo that surrounds the Sons of Hodir… Thrusting Hodir’s spear… seriously…
No, it was all about one thing, and one thing only, increasing my performance.
I am not a big fan of dailies. I am still not exalted at Sunwell, even though every man and their 2nd Alt is. Argent Tournament is one of those things to kill time. The idea of doing 40 days worth of dailies, probably 1 or 2 a week, just sent shivers down my spine. I had heard that you can “glitch” the quest line (more…)
Time for a few important reminders.
I have a couple, and I know you want to send me more.
There is only a couple of weeks left, so :
I have noticed a common thread amongst my cud chewing Tauren, spliff blowing Troll, zug zugging Orc, bone rattling forsaken and magic fume sniffing Blood Elf blogging colleagues.
The dislike Gnomes!?
It seems to oscillate between complete hatred to complete ambivalence (more…)
It was a mate’s birthday over the weekend (let’s call him WildMan), so after our chilly BBQ, we headed back to his place to down a few brews and Aliens.
Mr.Z! And another mate (TRex) joined us for the night.
My Mr offspec post from yesterday was intended as a tongue-in-cheek poke at an old mate of mine (who carried the “Mr Offspec” tag in his guild note for quite a while), primarily for those mates that I know read this blog, but also for general entertainment.
I can’t tell a story in a couple of words, when I could write a book about it instead.
Now to be fair, we do in fact have a system to handle main spec rolls and off spec rolls, through to DE’ing and distribution processes… so generally, there wouldn’t (shouldn’t) be an issue with a Mr Offspec situation.
We are a close knit group of 7 mates that play on a Friday night, while we all want a bit of loot, it is extremely common for any one of us to pass on an item to ensure that the group as a whole is better equipped, thus a) more capable of downing any boss/encounter and b) the loss of any one member of the party will not be so detrimental as to automatically equal a wipe (4 horseman on Friday is a good example, where even though the 2 top DPS went down early, while 9 manning the encounter, we still managed to pull through).
Our current goal is to gear up the group (more…)
I have a dream…
I can sit online for hours per day just chatting to mates and making money.
Ok, so I have two dreams.
Sitting online hours per day, chatting to mates and making money, and…
Becoming the CGO (Chief Gnomish Officer) of my own transport company.
I would call it.. (more…)
Dear Ambassador Gnomeaggedon of Gnomeregan, Master of the meters, Carpeter of raid floors and all round good Gnome.
Long time reader, never a commenter with a question.
My ragtag bunch of almost a 10 man raid have decided to declare one Friday a month as Old World night.
There are only 7 of us, but we can usually pick up a few more to clear Naxx10, so I think we can grab a few more if required.
In our bunch of stormtroopers we have.
- Me: DPS meter champion rogue, top them all, no matter how many slackers are in the party (4,9,24). I can and will log and bring on my healy Priest which is pretty competent as well.
- Mr. Offspec: You may have heard of him earlier today. 2nd best DPS as shaman, can heal in a pinch. Also rolls with Druid, well geared for all specs.
- UberGnome: he gets by OK, only tops meters if he takes me or the Shaman out 1st, but looks good naked, especially with his 3 mirror images. Great green beard btw (more…)
