The reason Gnomes will never retake Gnomeregan… (more…)

Getting a flying mount at 60 is like getting a cheat code.
Stretch your mind back before patch 3.2, back to your incursions in Outland.
If you were lucky if you arrived in Outland with an Epic land mount. If you weren’t so lucky, one of the most efficient ways of crossing a zone was ghost running.
Even with the epic land mount it was preparation for Naxx’s Frogger.
Dodge left, dodge right, outrun the aggro.
Exploring a zone completely at the appropriate level either required anal explorer skill at Artisan rank, or maybe a quest-completionist-dysfunction (more…)
An Aussie Blogger in the U.S. Looking For Bed
Here’s a bizarre question for you.
TreeHuggerDave is leaving Dallas today, heading onto LA, arriving around 80.30 pm on 29th, staying until the 4th of October…
Long story short, his accommodation in Dallas fell through and he is unexpectedly heading to LA early.
So if you have a spare bed, or even a couch and are prepared to welcome an Aussie blogger and WoW player into your home for a few days, drop me a line via the ContactGnome page (link at the top) and I will pass on your info.
Gnomer and Out!
- Poe man’s Rogue?
- Underpowered Mage?
- Half-baked Priest?
Squidly entered the Dark Portal for real last night.
At level 58 he was eligible for the quests and signed himself up for Ramps should a group eventuate.
The Old World is for Mugs
The questing was as easy as I remember. Being one of only a few in the zone means the respawns aren’t immediate, so you can cherry pick your mobs (more…)
Level 58 with a bullet, or is that totem. I’m officially acknowledged in Outland by the quest givers and they have lots for me to do.
Before I begin I would just like to thank a few of my supporters:
Level 58 with 360 XP to spare… Heirloom items FTW!
What’s with the D?
Normally it’s AV where people are cursing D for being too strong, but my WSG to bring in level 58 left me scratching my head (more…)
I can be a bit of a cranky old Gnome at times, as much as Larisa likes to tell me I have a rosy disposition.
But there’s one thing I know I love…
I love to toot the Gnomes horn, make sure that the message gets across that we are a much bigger force to be reckoned with than our 3 foot stature might suggest. (more…)
I’m not sure how many Glyph posts I have started and abandoned.
It’s not that I am unhappy with the Major Glyphs, although I am sure we all have ideas on how they can be improved.
My problem tends to be with the Minor Glyphs.
I can’t find 3 I want as either Mage or Shaman.
So here’s my proposal to Blizzard.
Glyph of the Gnome.
Things you don’t want to hear when you are 2/0 in WSG
Daddy, I need to do a poo!
I had waited 1.45 hours past the announced up time for our realm.
Extended maintenance was announced for a pile of realms, but nothing mentioned about the Oceanic realms – none of which were available – the Oceanic tab wasn’t even visible.
The most commonly asked question in the downtime forum
When are the Oceanic servers coming up?
Not a peep from Blizzard… Bad form Blizzard!
Finally the server comes up and I sign up for the daily BG – WSG (more…)
Madness I tell you, MADNESS!
Squidly is power-leveling.
- Not using questing guides.
- Not chain running instances.
- Not rounding up the mobs and AoEing them down.
No I am power leveling through PvP!
20% of a level for one AV!
Throw in a daily BG quest, the AV quests and the AB quest and it is just too easy. (more…)
