We failed to clear the Arachnid Quarter in the required 20 minutes last week, but only by a bee’s private part (or maybe that’s a spider’s private part under the circumstances).

It was close, and maybe if we had been just a little bit more settled, or maybe all of us on Vent, we would have done it.

What really struck me though, was the way that knowing there was a timer and an achievement at the end of that same timer, really gelled the raid into fast action (more…)

WWS

See I am still here!

Karch has been doing a great job answering his readers questions (why don’t I get questions? Oh yeah, I had one about whether you should stay Fire spec back in TBC. Apart from that they are just questions about help getting $millions out of Nigeria)

Anyway he had one the other day about how to fix low DPS, which prompted me to respond asking when do you know if your DPS is too low and does it really matter.

Now admittedly if you are only doing 1,000 DPS and you aren’t doing burning crusade content at level 70, then your DPS is too low.

I have seen on various forums that numbers such as 1,200 – 1,400 is acceptable for starting heroics and 1,400 to 1,600 is acceptable for starting Naxx (more…)

Yer, umm here’s my weekly weekend wrap up… which is normally up on a Tuesday or Wednesday, but with playtime starting for this weekend in 3 hours, I better knock out last week’s….

I didn’t get to play on Friday night, in part because I played for a little while on Thursday, but I did get a bit of play time on Saturday.

The good part about this was that I got to do a few heroics…

The bad bit as the 9 items my mates DE’d

I am sure a couple of those had my name on them…

AN Achievements

Dropped in on Azjol-The-Noob, 1st time in once again my 1st run through an encounter is a heroic… well, let’s face it, they all will be. (more…)

42

Yep, it’s my 42nd birthday, as much as I might to deny it, and as much as many people look surprised to discover I am that old. (but they say you are only as old as the woman you feel… So that’s only 29).

Funnily enough I don’t feel 42, even stranger is the fact that I think I have been 42 for the last 12 months. Every time someone has asked over the last 12 months I have either said “nearly 42″ or just straight out “42”, I don’t know why…

Odin commissioned (from Mum) a crayon picture of him in blue shoes and gloves with Dad in red shoes, as well as Mum… Cooking. I think the 2nd is a worry. Maybe it’s time I learnt to cook something other than bacon. (more…)

So how about those instance maps guys?

I finally hit “M” while in an instance, and I have to say the wait was worth it… Well maybe not such a long wait, but it is still awesome to both get an instance map and see my position and my parties position real time.

Just Awesome!

The only change I want is to include this for all those bloody caves and buildings that are scattered across the world.

Nothing more frustrating than trying to find my way out of a stinking cave, that is displayed in miniature on my minimap, but when I hit “M” I get the world map.

Anyway, Begging Gnomes can’t be choosing Gnomes.

Gnomer and Out! (more…)

WoW!

What a weekend!

I was at a LAN, but primarily to catch up with my old mates in person for a change.

No Vent lag when you are all in the same room.

Anyway, I decided to stand my mates up for our usual (traditional) Friday night run. Instead I signed up for Guild Naxx raids for both Friday and Saturday nights. It’s so rare that I get to play both nights and combined with the chance to run Naxx 25, the opportunity was too good to miss.

Sorry guys, back with you next week!

So what did I do from Friday afternoon through to Sunday afternoon?

What to do at 80… Maybe a little of this…

So I hit 80 the other day… you may have read that far

This left me in a quandary.

I have promised myself I will quest right through Northrend before I instance or raid.

I have promised myself I will revisit the old world before I Instance and Raid the newest world.

I have promised myself I will be strong…

But I am weak… (more…)
