PhailMage is fail

The 1st step is admitting you have a problem right?

Well my addiction is freefalling over Stormwind.

I could do it over the lake, probably over the canals as well, but where is the challenge in that.

Anyway, I am a Mage (more…)

My bar fridge is empty

… so I can’t play WoW.

I know some people won’t or can’t log in due to things like:

  • Expired subscription
  • Lack of Internet connection
  • Work
  • Family obligations
  • High latency (wimps!)
  • Earthquakes, floods, cyclones, bushfires, nuclear meltdown or alien abduction

But one of my greatest deterrents to logging in, is the empty bar fridge.

Will raid for beer

Yes, I have a bar fridge.

Yes I have a bar fridge next to my PC.

Yes I have a bar fridge that is considered a part of my “office furniture”. It’s what my printer sits on (which in turn is Odin’s cat’s favorite perch) (more…)

You hate WoW Fishing?

I hate WoW Fishing!

You love WoW Fish Feasts!

I love WoW Fish Feasts!


There… I said it.

Oh, here’s a surprise, I have more to say…

I remember back when I was looking up the Seafood Magnifique Feast recipe, I thought to myself

Not much different from a Fish feast… I made tons of those. Not really for my use of course, rather for anyone in BGs or Raid groups I was in.

I fished, therefore I fed.

So… where do I need to buy the recipe from.. (more…)

I would never stoop so low

as to do lowbie quests.

OK sure, I did it while chasing Loremaster back in WoLK, but you would never find me doing that now.

I never did tell you about my Loremaster journey did I… guess I saved you a lot of boring stories.

Completely drained by Archeology, all my defenses down, I found myself in Westfall the other day.

Oh god it was so boring… the NPCS were banging on about a couple of murders and no sooner would I talk to a PC, then he would be dead as shady characters were seen running from the vicinity.

Hell, I nearly rushed (you know how you rush with that urgent delivery… 3 weeks later) on one occasion when I heard one of my contacts was in trouble…

Ummm, what’s going on here… how can I be getting caught up in a story line when I’m not even reading the quest text.

Damn, now I wish I knew what was going on… nevermind, I will press forward and take the time to read now…


Where the hell is the Deadmines entrance?

Jumping Gnomes, I have been playing this game for how long and I still can’t find the bloody entrance!

Whooooo cut scene…. (I do love the party in this cut-scene)

Ahhh now, I understand what I am doing in the Deadmines these days… it’s just a shame this isn’t a level 85 quest line… Meh, let’s face it, I would only be doing it for the gold if it was (more…)

Doesn’t mean I do!

Ozruk is here to scare the tanks away

Apparently it would take a Call to Arms booty bag, 2 additional levels, duel wielded legendaries and a harem of fair Gnomish beauties if it meant there was a chance tanks had to fight this guy.

Me, I don’t care too much.

There is one thing I really like about this fight.

People expect to fail, so no one gets uptight if they do and they celebrate (for a good half a second) when we take it down.

Unfortunately, the same can’t be said for other fights (more…)

The one thing worse than Fishing

I used to hate, no abhor, fishing in WoW and to be honest it’s starting to swing back that way again.

I grew to enjoy it for a few reasons.

  • It was slightly more productive than doing laps of Dalaran.
  • There were achievements, lots of achievements, most of which could be scored while doing relatively productive fishing.
  • I could plop myself somewhere while waiting for LFD or BGs to pop. No risk of missing queues and little movement required.
  • While the activity itself had only moderate rewards as in achievements, it was the resource that could be quickly converted into a useful feast for the raid or BG (yes I popped a fish feast in most BGs – why not?)

My joy for fishing has dwindled a lot. The achievements, two of then, are pointless and unless I spend my time fishing in pools which are few and far between (or phased /sigh). I can’t even cook up the latest fish feast (for another 4,000 fish).

So as that kinda-joy dwindled I was tricked by otherwise sensible bloggers such as Miss Mediocre (who in every other sense writes great stuff) to try Archeology.

I know I am going to offend a lot of people with this next statement, but Archeology is as bad as Robert Jordan’s Wheel of Tine series (may he rest in peace) (more…)

Lovely head on that Gnome

A quick deviation from our scheduled posting to wish Calvin a happy birthday.

Not something I would normally do, however he has shared a joyful moment with me, thinking (correctly) that it is something that would appeal to me.

This is arguably the 2nd sexiest Gnome you have ever seen… I am still the most sexy Gnome you will ever see, but this is a close 2nd.

Makes you want to me in my gang doesn’t it?

Happy Birthday Calvin.

May all the Gnomes in your life bring you as much pleasure as this one!

Gnomer and Out!
