Keep up the awesome posts man.

I been sitting on that for a few days… needless to say I was somewhat gobsmacked… I’m been walking around the house now for days in a kind of stupor…

It’s good to know my readers care enough to taunt me… My Warlock readers no less…

Of course there has to be some good new in the patch notes…

PvP

  • All healing abilities (including items such as potions) will be decreased in effectiveness by 10% when in Battlegrounds, Arenas, or Wintergrasp.

Umm yeah… OK, maybe not…

Ohh hang on… what’s this?

Mage:

  • Working as intended
  • Will still deliver Warlock’s Imps on a platter!

Gnomer and Out, Squidly and Stout! (more…)

I Love CriticalQQ: PvP for Fire Mages!


Rip, thanks for taking the time out from your studies to write such an awesome post!

Wish I could do the same right now, to thank you properly, but at least I can tell people to gogogogo to you, right now!

Dear Mr. Gnomeaggedon, Sir

Gnomer and Out!

  • My Feedreader is consistently at 1,000+ unread posts.
  • My Mage category is consistently at 150+ unread posts
  • My Shaman category is consistently at 90+ unread posts

Dont get me started on the others…

Anyway, this means I do stupid things like hassle harried history students about things that I could probably work out myself, while my feedreader laughs at me because 2 posts away are tons of posts about Fire Mages in General and Fire PvP Specifically.

So apologies up front to Rip if I have dragged him away from his studies.  If you have started, don’t stop.  I haven’t found a source of Fire Mages enchants and gemming wisdom yet…

Meanwhile here are some links.. (more…)

But wait…that is not the only gnome invading.. (more…)

Tanks need Mages because


Mages..
Who needs Mages?

Tanks need Mages!

They don’t need us for healing admittedly, although I have popped a bandage on a tank before when we were the last two standing.

No, Tanks need Mages for the challenge of playing a Tank, we make life… Errr hmmm… Fun!

Aggro

Mages measure their ability to play their class by DPS. Tanks measure their ability via TPS (more…)

… and It annoys me a little bit.

  • If you’ve got a Mage, you use it.
  • If you don’t, I’m sure you’ve seen it used.

You tend to notice when your Mage population instantly expands.

Where there was one, there are now four or five (add a few more if you have some VooDoo Gnomes along for the ride).

Three or four of them throwing frostbolts like snowballs, the other slightly more intelligent one mixing it up with their flavor of the month spell of choice.

If you thought the Mage overpopulation was confusing, imagine how the mobs feel, whether lackeys or bosses they now don’t know who to hit.

We are just a little vain

Mages love them for a variety of reasons, not the least being 4 or 5 naked Gnomes is always better than 1. (more…)

Mages piss me off!


Yep, strong words coming from a Mage.

Gnomeaggedon got an in-game mail from his Shaman mate Squidly.

mail from Squidly to Gnomeaggedon

Hey Gnome, what is it with Mages? (more…)

Squidlys PvP Achievements

Tip 1: JUST DO IT!

Definitely do it if you are still on the leveling grind, you will be picking up enough XP to make it a worthwhile diversion to your questing and grinding and you get access to epics. Epics which apart from being purple will be guaranteed upgrades more often than not.

The boys at ForTheHorde! reminded me that I needed to get back into Pee Vee Pee and not worry about the Transient Twinks, so I have been getting in and getting dirty.

More Tips.

Tip 2: Go Resto, Go!

I mentioned how much I was enjoying Elemental in BGs, but that doesn’t stop me shopping around. I even asked the question over at Addicted to Heals shaman blog.

Last night the decision was made for me due to Alzheimer’s (more…)

There is an unwritten rule of Mage v. Lock relations.

Hate the other publicly, envy them privately.

OK, maybe not so unwritten.

OK, maybe it’s written nearly everywhere on every Mage and Lock blog, forum, guild website plus many more.

Well, the hate bit anyway, I guess I can’t really speak for other Mages, but I don’t hate Locks.

Fear them a little yes, but hate them… Not even a little.

Of course the days of the Burning Crusade are long gone (more…)

PPI redirect

A Public Service announcement on behalf of Larisa… I think she’s having a Murloc Monday

I quote:

Technical issues

Posted by Larísa
If you can read this post you’re not the one I’m trying to reach. Does this sound cryptic?

The thing is that it seems as if my old domain address http://pinkpigtailinn.blogspot.com doesn’t work. It used to redirect visitors to www.pinkpigtailinn.com, but not so any longer. I don’t know if this is a temporary issue or a permanent change of things. And no matter what it is – I have no idea what to do about it. So I just want to get out the word: please change your bookmarks and links to PPI to the new domain address, or my voice will be lost in the eternal sea of Internet.

But how could I get in touch with the ones who need to know it and tell them that their virtual pub hasn’t closed, just moved? I have no idea.

Proper posts are incoming later this week. Don’t lose hope!

Cheers from your innkeeper
