As mentioned yesterday, Larisa and I were asked some time back to write some guest posts for a Mage blogger that was (and maybe still is) returning to the fold.  I know real life was getting in the way and its a shame to waste informative posts like these.  After you read this you will realise how many Mage raid spots were lost just because this sat in draft for so long (like February long).

Strangely, Larisa departed from her normally sensible, informative posts to throw a bit of /sillyGnome about with her post.  It was her usual well written stuff, the kind that if you read between the lines you know that you will be a better player, if not Mage, if you follow her suggestions.

Every now and then, I feel it is my duty to step away from the /sillyGnome stuff, to write truly valuable posts that will benefit both novice and ArchMage alike, so here it is:

Fire Mage Raid Preparation: Gnomeaggedon’s guide to one time raid invites

I’m honored to have been asked to write a guest post for the relaunch of this wonderful Fire Magely blog and what’s more been given a topic so very close to my Gnomish heart…

Fire Mage Raiding.

Now the thing is, well the things are, that:

  1. I only really get to raid on the odd PuG’s discretion these days and;
  2. When I do raid these days I make healer DPS look good, and;
  3. There are so many better sources of Fire Mage raiding information (like the blog you have found this post on) and of course;
  4. Gnomes is /silly

So in the interests of maintaining an appropriate level of silliness in the face of a deadly serious and burning topic, I present to you my preparations for Fire Mage Raiding.

The essential Fire Mage Raiding Checklist.


You need mats right?

How you going to get them?

None of this pussy Goblin buy low sell high business. It’s bad enough that people compare us to Goblins without sinking to their level.

Nope you need to get out and grind the mats for the essential consumables, the ones with the following attributes (more…)

In my attempt to assure you that I am the Misleading Mage Blogger (thus preventing others from suffering such an unjust accusation), I present to you a Misleading Mage post.

Better yet, its a guest post from my all time favorite MAGE Blogger.  Yes contrary to popular belief, she is not just a Mage that blogs, but is truly a Mage Blogger and so I present exhibit A:

Misleading Mage posts:

Agility and Attack Power – the essentials of a mage

A little while I got a request from an upcoming blogger who wanted me to write a guest post. It should be about what five elementals I thought would constitute a good overall Mage.

“Are you serious?” was my first reaction. Sure, I’ve been playing my beloved Mage for three years straight, but until this day I’ve hardly written anything about the Mage class that you could describe as even remotely useful.

However – when I was done coming up with all those excuses I thought: “what the heck, how bad could it be”? And I decided to approach the topic from a slightly different angle.

As it turned out, the blog that this post was intended for never took of. So I came up with this cunning plan, to dump it on my neighbor blogger, Gnomeaggedon.

Since his blog is already full of misleading information, I thought that this post might fit in as well.

And with this introduction, ladies and gentlemen, I will now present you five stats that I think are essential to anyone planning to play a Mage. Maybe not the ones you think of at first (more…)

Here I am!

I’m the misleading Mage..

I mean it has to be me, right?

There are only two Mage bloggers and one of them give misleading information.

Well, I don’t give accurate theorycrafting mumbo-jumbo that is more appropriate in an engineering manual.

Which poses a dilemma… if I am the misleading Mage, who is the one with the good information?

It could have been Euripedes… NO NOT THAT euripides, OUR Euripedes… the good one, the cool one, the one we are crying about losing but excited about his fiction blog.

It could be one of the other 69 (/snicker) Mages on my Mage blog roll… more maybe the other dozen that I have been too busy to add.

It could have been Larisa.. after all, she is a respected blogger… she’s a blogging Mage, if not a Mage Blogger… well she is that, was that, her earlier posts go very close to theorycraft, but really, like all Mages she has grown beyond the numbers, the rotations, the…

you’re a noob if you don’t do x

She is not just intelligent, she is sophisticated.

Alright.. she’s HAWT! (but maybe only a Gnome can appreciate that!)

More to the point, maybe only Mages can appreciate that.. you see there are some very important differences between Hunters and Mages and this is very apparent in the bloggers that write about them

We is Smart, they is dumb!

Well, of course intelligence is relative.. (more…)
