It’s been a while hasn’t it… no not so much since I posted, but yes I have been enjoying my holidays, my time with Odin, my new house and…
Well, that’s what I’m trying to say, it’s been a while since Gnomeaggedon got more than a mailbox check.
Squidly’s sick of random dungeons, because doing the same instance time and again doesn’t feel all that random. He’s also run afoul of GearScore and Achievement linking… people on Twitter got to hear me howl about that, but that can wait for another day.
Gnomeaggedon Frost Nova’d and Polymorph: Turtle’d Squidly to get a bit of play time. Something a little bit less about you (or them) and much more about me.
See that’s the thing about healing, ultimately it’s all about them…
- Keep the tank alive – he’ll save you but = them
- Keep the DPS alive – they’ll turn the DPS meters red with blood = them
- Loot drops and someone Ninja’s it = them (admittedly not as bad as Dechion’s experiences, expounded upon by the BigBearaggedon (no… not yet… but soon… sooon Mmmmwwwwhhhhhaaaahahhahaha! Make sure you read BBB’s last comment it realy sums up these fucksticks, forum trolls and bullies in general, as well as the true thoughts of higher beings like us)
- Loot drops for Squidly that’s an upgrade & he’s called a Ninja = them (yes another holiday adventure story for another time)
Time out for me, Me, ME I TELL YOU!
After Squidly started sporting nice new Triumph clothes and couldn’t remember why he was in Wintergrasp and the other battlegrounds any more (stupid f’n you can’t queue for more than one activity!), Gnomeaggedon reared his little green head and said…
Please Sir, can I have some more.. emblems… and FUN!
Queue Wintergrasp… Queue Random… hell, just Queue!
Gnomeaggedon had to go and buy some more faction mounts, because doing laps around Dalaran waiting for Queues to pop was wearing his Green Mechanostrider out.. bored.. bored… bored…
Don’t get me wrong, when the queue pops, and admittedly Wintergrasp often beats the random dungeon, I have a blast… A Fire Blast of course.
It had been so long since I played Gnomeaggedon I had forgotten that I crafted a crappy PvP set and dropped my Arcane offspec for a Fire PvP spec.
OFMG! Talk about things dropping fast!
Yeah.. it’s me dropping fast… but those 15 seconds between 30 second Spirit Rezs are some of the most exciting I have experienced in a while.
Occasionally, OK rarely, I manage to get the killing blow, I manage to pump everything I have into my opponent in the shortest period of time known to Gnomes.
Of course it’s rare that I find an AFK’er in Wintergrasp, but when I do, I take full advantage of it.
Things drop slow sometimes too.
My favorite way to start WG now is to join the queue, then pop through the WG portal (because Alliance hold WG 19 out of 20 times), then mount up, fly up high into the sky and… wait….
When the battle begins I get a couple of warnings which I happily ignore, because I know what’s coming next…
Gnomeston, we have a problem!
It’s the age old Gnomeaggedon problem.
Gnomeaggedon loves PvE, but he also LOVES PvP.
When the random dungeon queue fiiiiiinnnnnaaaalllly pops, Gnomeaggedon is sooo excited he just literally burns up!
It’s like PvP but the Mobs don’t target him, they target the thick skinned one in the group!
He has an OrGnomeasm in the 1st 20 seconds… Living Bomb, Fire Blast, Flame Strike.. Whoo Hooo Instant Pyroblast, Blizzard.. he, why am I dead?
The party finish the fight then start asking what happened… I shrug, thank for the Rez and charge at the next bunch of Mobs…
Living Bomb, Fire Blast, Flame Strike.. Whoo Hooo Instant Pyroblast, Blizzard.. he, why am I dead?
Mmmm maybe I better settle down…
What’s a Gnome to do?
Oh yeah, that’s what I started writing about before messing another pair of Megan’s panties just thinking about PvP Fire…
What the hell is a Gnome to do when he is bored, Bored, BORED as hell waiting for a queue to pop?
What’s the one thing slightly less boring than waiting for paint to dry… err I mean a queue to pop for a solo DPS?
I’m questing… with a dose of exploring on the side.
That’s not boring, it’s good money too!
Yeah, so you say… but I’m not talking 13 gold Northrend Quests, I’m talking 13 copper Azeroth quests
I got so bored, that I decided to try and complete the Loremaster Achievement, as well as the Dora the Explorer achievement (if I’m traipsing mindlessly around Azeroth, why not?).
Gnomeaggedon did most of his leveling in 5 man instances with mates, so both Eastern Kingdoms and Kalimador where sitting at about 400/700 quests. I have been going hard at it though, so Kalimador is now up to 408/700… Eastern Kingdoms is sitting at about 662/700. I have also explored 6 zones in the Eastern Kingdoms.
I know this is the stage that people start to sweat… where am I going to find the last 38 quests to knock this one over…
Not me.. I’ve got hundreds of quests left to do!
How do you know?
Ahh glad you asked, because that’s really what this post is all about.
Azeroth Technology at it’s finest.
I went looking for an addon before banging my head repeatedly on my desk.. I knew it would be a questing addon, and since I have abandoned my use of QuestHelper and Carbonite, and QuestGuru likes to tease me by failing at important moments (like when I want to read the quest text), I wanted to find something else… what would it be called?
EveryQuest.. obvious really and it stood out when I was looking through the addons… ohh but wait, what’s this…
Loremaster… OK, stab in the dark.. this one is related to the achievement.
OK, rundown in 30 words or less (lol)
Everyquest is a list of Everyquest
Loremaster indicates the likelihood that a quest will give you credit for the Loremaster achievement.
Everyquest also allows you to sync your QuestGuru or QuestHelper history, or of course download the history from Blizzard.
Yeah that’s what I say all the time.. but in this case I mean for this post… I expect it’s taken you both tea breaks and you lunch time to read it… you must be starving… sorry…
Don’t sweat, you have a few days to read it before I try and generate a posting schedule again.. I’m back to work on Monday, so last chance to hit the sunny beaches of Victoria, which is much more pleasant that mowing the lawn for 2 hours and 40 minutes in the HEAT!
Right, sorry about that, my skin is redder than my hair right now…
Hope you all had a great “holiday”.. bahh call it what it is… Christmas and New year.
Think of me while you shovel your way to the font door, wishing you didn’t leave the window open last night, knowing you still have to shovel your way to the car, then shovel the car out, then shovel you way to the office door, the repeat it all on the way home.
Gnomer and Out of here!
We’re all going on a summer holiday… I just wanted the song, but instead you get an entire episode of The Young Ones… in 4 parts… looks like tomorrow’s lunch and tea breaks are taken care of…
