BigBearButt outed me to Matticus on Twitter…

busted

Out of the closest… again.

So just for the record… yes I have a Warlock, an Affliction Warlock..

But I am wondering what rock the Bear has been hibernating under, because the rest of you you know I have had it for a long time.. some time in 2008 I started my Lock Twinking adventures with Twinking your level 19 Warlock: Part 1. Introduction. The thing is, I could never bring myself to finish the experience, so the Lock was languishing at level 17 for 4 years.

There has been a long quiet spell in our guild lately and Dara and I found ourselves playing BGs over and over again… it was starting to get stale. One of the problems with BGs is the scenery doesn’t change too often, so I decided to change the personal scenery and add the Lock to my BG stables (currently housing Mage, Shaman, Druid, and an unloved DK).

So the Lock got dragged out of storage, Dara dug up her young Shaman and we started the leveling process.

That didn’t last long… REROLL!

Not long after that we rerolled… Did I say I liked the Lock?

Now we had two alts each, A Lock and a Pally for me… A Shaman and a Rogue for Dara… leveling in tandem.

One of the advantages of leveling on one character for 5 levels, then switching to the other, is there isn’t much time to get sick of the 1st one… at the 1st sign of boredem, we just switch toons.

One of the disadvantages is it feels like we just completed that painful collection quest… oh yeah we did… on the other toons.

That Mage…

There was a moment, early on, where I found myself face to face with a Horde Mage in WSG.

So I killed a Mage!

and yes I liked it.

Stupid Mage should have iceblocked…

Our “juniors” are now well into their 70’s and some things are very clear now (more…)

No Mage Food = No Mage Heals!


Let me rephrase that for those Mages amongst us without an Arcane Intellect buff

No Mage Food = No Mage Heals!

Ohh that came out the same… I guess I don’t think it’s that hard to understand.

For a while there I was getting so annoyed (and it isn’t the 1st time I have been annoyed about this), that as soon as I zoned into a BG and saw a Mage, but no table I would write in BG chat…

No Mage Food = No Mage Heals!

When I started blogging, I did so for one simple reason

There are no Mage blogs, therefore I must blog.

I soon realised the error of my ways, it was more like

I can see no Mage blogs, therefore there are none.

This of course wasn’t quite true.

I had found the burned out husks of Mage blogs, some of which I think must have been special in their arcane moment of glory, now reduced to ashes (more…)

Livingbomb is a STD


My first appreciation of the power of STDs in WoW came from one of those (supposedly) hated sources. In fact it caused me to subscribe to a blog that really I have little to nothing in common with, yet still read and joust with on a frequent basis.

Killing ‘em Slowly was the blog and the post I read was from the dirty filthy Lock of the duo. It was a perfect example of the spreading of STDs and the (im)moral victories that can be obtained through them. We can’t find that post, maybe my memory is failing, but I still clearly remember a post where a boss was killed just as the last raid member went down, one last tick of a dot from a now deceased Lock and the victory was theirs.

Of course a pure, pious, pulpit wielding Gnome like myself would never live amongst those with STDs, let alone gain one and spread it. Spread it not only without conscience, bit with glee.

No, no, never!

Never would we hear of the pure engaging in underworld activities. Never would they be caught in the arms of an illicit lover.

However, I would engage in Leprechaun like terrorist activities involving the laying of time delayed bombs that rip the face off my opponents and their celebrating friends.

You see, I am a Fire Mage

lol… get it?

Fire

Mage

Fire Mage!

Yeah, OK, whatever… I can’t be held accountable for how highbrow your sense of humor is.

Really, what did you expect from a Gnome… /serious? (more…)

Maybe I’m in denial


I’m a Mage…

I know I’m a Mage…

I’m a Mage dammit!

Yet why do I constantly see signs that I might be something other, something more insidious, one of the unlucky ones…

A Warlock!

This is a challenge to all bloggers, podcasters and readers and listeners of blogs and podcasts.

There have been two exciting developments over the weekend.

Mana Obscura Mage Community Forums

Not one, but TWO new community forums have opened, both dear to my heart.

TotemSpot Shaman Forums

I think I’m a little delirious, because you know, the title of this post probably has nothing to do with the contents of the post..

let me check…

Ummm no, not really, err, maybe kinda.

No Yankees, but there is some Fire Mage Talent commentary

** WTF! **

So, how ’bout that new 31 point talent tree?

Is the question I got asked, to which I responded…

31 point talent tree?

Yeah, a Gnome with his finger on the pulse… wrong pulse, but there is a pulse there somewhere and a vein, maybe just give me another dozen attempts to jab that needle in…

So what’s the best way for me to approach this… yeah leave it to someone else…

That little distraction of a bar room brawl between the Hunters and the Good (capital G so you understand it’s about us Mages), has not distracted us from our common enemy.

Some…

… may think we have dropped the ball, turned our backs, forgiven them for past indiscretions.

Which is why, while I mourn the loss of a Great Mage blogger and rejoice at his tardy switch to fiction.

I mean, who can not love a category list like this:

I do not forget that which the Warlocks have forged.  In fact, inspired by Rip’s words such as:

Saresa. In honour of warlocks such as yourself, every six months I level one to twenty and then delete it whilst cackling.

and

Megan. I’d let you corpse camp me any day. If you know what I mean. And I mean SEX.

Hang on, that last one doesn’t quite fit what I am really trying to say… but I am inspired to queue on the corpse pile.

I second Rip’s thoughts on Jong as well… I mean any man with the audacity to tame BigBearButt for his alt Hunter is a god among gods. (and if you missed Jong’s temp post… well… maybe it’s time you subscribed to his secret feed)

Anyway.. back on topic, I to have been tardy in revealing the other entries in the Save a Soul Today competition I was running.

There is a kind of strange irony in these last two entries.. if you recall, I was calling upon Mages (primarily) to either CC and screenshot a Warlock, or describe a 10 step rehabilitation program for the poor lost souls (no not the stones, the evil keepers of the stones).

The irony is, that these two entries are from.. (more…)

Certain Hunter’s, who shall remain nameless, (I can’t remember their names anyway) say there are no good Mage Bogs (or at least there is one good Mage blog & Me – being a Misleading Mage Blog… I’m telling you it’s ME!).

Certain Mage bloggers (like ALL of us) disagree (Well, OK, I am a Misleading Mage blog, but there are more than one good Mage Blog).

One of us is taking action to bring awareness to the great unwashed horde of Hunters, and more importantly the fledgling or expert Mages of our World of Warcraft.

No.. it is not me.  I will not risk losing my Misleading title!

Sensibly this isn’t an attempt to write every Mage guide every written, this is an attempt to build a page or resources to the many excellent, but maybe obscure references to Magedom spread around the Blogsphere.

This is where you come it.

Suggest it:

His list is just off the ground, it’s currently a short, but very sweet collection of resources.  I knew when I threw my eye over it, that there was much more out there – MUCH MORE!

The question is… where?

So if you:

  • Know of an active Mage Blog or resource
  • Know of excellent Mage posts

Drop GamerGaz a line and fill him in (more…)

Oh Lordy, it looks like my attempt at being THE Misleading Mage is being misled by other Mages wanting to prove their power.

Of course those damn hunters may have been wrong… maybe there aren’t just 2 Mage blogs with one being misleading… maybe there are many more but lots of us are misleading.

No wonder I only rate 23rd on this months Misleading Mage charts!

So, rather than what was planned, I present to you the master of the misleading, Rivs of A High Latency Life, with:

Misleading Mage posts:

Importance of Looking Good.

I came to realize there are many challenges that face classes today, for example,  Hunters it’s figuring out how to name their pet. It has to be hard otherwise why would there be so many pets named “Spider” or “Cat”.  The Mage class is no different, and with so many new races able to become mages, I thought I would share. If your a newly minted mage, or an old timer who seen ICC more then the back of your mouse hand, we have one major obstacle, or challenge if you will.. We need to look good, and being a Mage of the Finest Caliber I am here to help with a few things you could do to help make yourself look good (more…)
