I’m your party healer.

I’m the one at the back of the room that needs to be close enough to the front of the room to keep the tank alive (and the DPS on occasions)

I have needs that aren’t being met.

I need mana occasionally, although admittedly you are generally conscious of this.

What you aren’t conscious of is my need for 3 other things.

I need loot.

I see you riffling the corpses while I quickly mana up. I see the items you grab and I share in the silver (more…)

Smarter WoW Disconnects?

Login Screen

I’ve been disconnecting from WoW a lot lately.

I’m not sure why, everything else is fine, it’s just WoW. Doesn’t appear to be a latency thing, just one minute I am running along, next I am hearing the roar of the starting screen dragon.

Apparently PewPew has been disconnecting too, just not as nicely as me. Not just him but a large proportion of the WoW population.

Mind you disconnects are nothing new to me, I have a long history of DCs. Most of the time it isn’t at an important moment. Even when I am questing and grinding and DC I generally come back to find a corpse at my feet, not my corpse at someone else’s feet. The only reason it’s a concern now is I am the healer, not the disposable DPS, if I DC during a boss fight (and I have), then it may spell disaster (once it did, another time I reconnected in the nick of time).

Something different

So my long history of DCs has made me notice something different lately (more…)

squidly at Ramps

On Friday night I romped through a couple of instances with my usual PuG tank.

Yo Viking!

He even trekked back from Northrend to help me out… See, puggers will cross the seas and stars to help each other out.

Then it was back to BGs and quests until I got an invite to Blood Furnace. The original DK tank had to go before the run started so another one was recruited.

The Reluctant Tank

Well it was a DPS DK, as a reluctant tank. Don’t get me wrong, he was happy to tank, he just wasn’t sure if he could pull it off (more…)

The Flag is Noob Bait

This post may contain excessive use of profanities.

Eye of the Storm Has one objective.

Score 1,600 points before the other team does.

There are 3 targets in EotS:

  • The towers/ruins
  • The flags
  • The opponents

Only one of these matters, the other two are noob bait (unless fulfilling target No. 1) (more…)

OK, so 10.15 on a Saturday night happens to be one of my Favorte Cure songs…

Awesome AV is Awesome

I dare say you already know my opinion on the Alterac Valley battleground.  Just in case you don’t…


OK, sometimes I hate it, generally when we lose, but generally I love it, win or lose.

Last night, wife gone out partying, Odin tucked in bed, Daddy…

Daddy was having an orgy of AV healing ecstasy!

Alliance 3, Horde 1, or was that Horde 3, Alliance 0

  • Some say a fast game is a good game.
  • Others suggest a close game is a good game
  • Others of course think that the only game worth playing is a ROLFSTOMPYOUMFTOOLSINTOTHEGROUND game.

Last night my tally of Alterac Valley games went (more…)

Solo WoW One Day?

Do you think Blizzard will ever take the MMO out of WoW, leaving just the RPG?

The end game focus seems to be shifting for many people. Sure there are lots of folk out there beating their thick virtual heads against the virtual boss brick wall, but the explore, quest and lore mentalities have become more prevalent on many blogs lately and I am going to assume that this is a sentiment felt wider than the blogging community.

The end of the WoW as we know it

Over the year plus I have been blogging the concept of WoW being replaced or the servers being closed down has come up reasonably frequently. (more…)

squidly and dark portal

Something strange is happening with Squidly.

He started out with all the best intentions.

  • Level normally
  • Explore Azeroth
  • Soak up all the quests and instances

But I have just realized that this will never be.

Why so dear Squid?

Well there are lots of factors that mean I am hop, skip and jumping all sorts of content (more…)
