Apparently, Gnomer had a bit of a hectic weekend, and was unable to get a “monday” post under his belt.  But never fear!  Krizzlybear is here!  I actually promised him via twitter that I would fill in for one of his posts.

Just a stipulation though.  I am unable to talk about anything frost.  That’s quite a tall order, since I am in love with the tree.

If you’re a fan of this blog, it shouldn’t come as a surprise that Gnomeaggedon, Larísa, and I have a very civil, yet quite exciting rivalry going on between gnomish mages.  A battle of the specs, if you will.  And with every new patch, and every new change that comes to our class, the battle ebbs back and forth like the tides on a beach.  With patch 3.3, all three specs received some pretty awesome changes and buffs, in both PvE and PvP.  If at all, I look forward to the ensuing battle.

But let’s leave that for another day.  Gnomer was busy this weekend, and as a diplomatic frostie, I will perform an act of kindness and bail him out today by writing this post.  And what else could be more adequate to talk about than the new LFG system?

Looking For Awesome

The other day, my mage, Bashertin not only received the title of “the Patient” but also the perky pug pet (more…)

3.3: Gnomeaggedon’s 1st Impressions

In the words that form the name of a Guild on Aman’Thul… BEERBEER! (Mr. Z! was tempted to join them the other day.. Guild names carry a lot of weight in recruitment folks!)

I read the Twitters…

I stated that it sounded more like Fail of the Lich King, than Fall of the Lich King.

My friend came around and I had a moment or two of dilemma…

WoW… Pub… WoW… Pub… WoW.. (more…)

Environmental Damage

  • Cold is cold.
  • Hot is hot.
  • Wet is only wet, but it both slows you down and in time will hurt, even kill you.
  • Green hurts, red hurts, black hurts even blue hurts, but only if laid at your feet by a player or npc.
  • Ice will slow or stop you, unless it’s natural, in which case you can move as fast and recklessly as usual.

The only exception to this rule I can think of is during the mid summer festival, in Slave Pens… Then and only then ice is slippery.

RNG is a necessary, if unwanted evil and I agree, but I would love a bit of randomly predictable environmental effects… like.. (more…)

Apparently I am so happy with a GMs service that I need to tell Blizzard to get the guy a soda and a pizza.

So I was thinking, who would like to buy one and go drop it off?

Maybe it’s a good opportunity for Ixobelle to get past the front gates… Just add a few CVs into the pizza box Ixo!

Mind you it took a while before I was visited by Cherigor, about 20 hours. Which I guess explains why I have never before had an in-game encounter with a GM. I am sure they were busy.. I doubt Cherigor was pushing me down the list or anything… I don’t think he realized I had a Gnome main at that point.

DND: Go on give me a challenge!

I had just started on a Nexus run when the Deadly Boss Mods DND message flashed up.

He asked if it was a bad time…

I’m only healing I responded.

Hey folks, just a quick follow up.

I know a few of you decided to try living with out you word verification.  Some of you appropriately took my request as a demand (or was it the other way around), others have just tried it out.

Nibuca (She’s been getting heaps of mentions lately), sent the post out on a #tntcast, which I guess means there is a chance she will raise it on TNB this week.

The other thing she has been doing is giving daily updates on the change in her spam levels (more…)

DPS don’t matter

I don’t care how UBER your DPS is…


Ok, so Gnomeaggedon has been on the wrong end of that statement before.

More than a few times.

But you know what, I know whose fault it is when I’m lying dead on the floor 30 seconds into an encounter.

As much as I would like to blame Mr. Tree’s weak-arsed “One DoT will last Gnomer all night” healing, the reality is I brought the death upon myself.

  • Not the Healer!
  • Not the Tank!
  • Me and only me!

Just cause I can pump it out at times doesn’t mean I should. Yes it’s a shame when the 3rd moon of Venus is aligned with Pluto, the planet of personal transformation, and the libido in the air is just ripe, but if the mother-in-laws of all aggro are also there… (more…)

Dear Guild Masters

Nibuca asked a question in Twitter the other day.

What do you look for in a Guild Website?

I shot back one quick response:

Give non-WoW templates

That’s it.

I don’t care too much about the functionality, I do want to be able to read and leave comments, but the only thing that is important to me is being able to access the guild website when ever I want to.

It isn’t really relevant to me anymore anyway, for a couple of reasons (more…)

Rewarding the UNDERAchievers

With apologies to Nibuca for, as always, treating her Locksensible questions with my own brand of Gnomesense.

She was lamenting the lack of 5 man rewards for geared players.

This made me think of all the ways underachievers miss out.

How will they ever:

  • Close the gear gap between themselves and the Hardcore?
  • Get to see a raid?
  • Solo an elite?
  • Get achievements, particularly violet protodrakes?

I think the time has come to redress the balance and I have found the perfect vehicle for these achievements.

Lu’Zor Trolls

There is a little known faction in WoW. You won’t find them mentioned in WoW lore. The reason being that they are the outcasts of outcasts.

Yes a Troll tribe that no one likes, not even other Trolls. They inhabit the forgotten yet unforgiving zones of WoW… Under remote bridges, Official forums, Trade chat, even the Dalaran bank steps (more…)
