This post started as a comment at Punt This! on Warsong Gulch 101, but I thought I’d write it up properly and add some badly composed images… you know, my hallmark.

This is my standard flag carrying strategy in WSG.

It’s the one that proves 2 things.

  1. Mages (make that any clothy) can flag carry
  2. Horde Graveyard is a good way to come.

I have probably returned 8-9 out of 10 flags this way. You are usually in your flag room before the Horde knows you took the flag, so with the Horde flag in your base, the only other thing required is the return of your flag.

I often find that after running this once in a BG (assuming the EFC is taken down fast for a quick cap), that all opposition evaporates. I guess when there is a flag cap within the first few minutes, and they didn’t see the flag carrier, they just figure they wont see them again and it is already game over.

This is also a good strategy for grabbing their flag just before they cap your flag.  They tend to mill about in disbelief that they couldn’t cap, and then split their forces in several directions trying to catch you.

This is a guide written about me, a Mage, A Gnome Mage, and my flag running strategy from my perspective. That said, my non-Mage buddies do the same thing if I am ever too slow, or choose to cover them instead.. Warlocks, Disc Priests, Resto Shaman they all do fine (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!

Sixth…


Nearly 3 years ago I was asked to provide my sixth image from my sixth screenshot folder.

For all I know this still goes on, may have just occured last week.

If it has, let me know.

If it hasn’t, well play along with me a little.

The basic premise is easy…

  • Go into your image folder
  • Open the sixth sub-folder and choose the sixth image.
  • Publish the image! (and a few words wouldn’t hurt, though I dare say I couln’t stop a blogger from adding a few words of their own).
  • Challenge six new bloggers.
  • Link to them.

Back then the 6 bloggers I chose were: Leafy, Fikkle from For the Horde, Fimlys (who didn’t repond.. will take that up with him later), Pugnacious Priest, Euripedes from Critical QQ, and finally Matticus (who I knew wouldn’t respond, but hey I never stop trying).

So I guess to get the ball rolling, I will pick my 6th screenshot folder…

Mmmm…

not sure how that folder got there…

OK, maybe a little creative sorting, and now I have a sixth folder I can use.

6th sceenshot is.. (more…)

I spent years achieving the achievement and all I got was this lousy title…

Finally, finally, with a lot of help from my friends and awesome support from the PuGs, I got Resilient Victory,

the last achievement I needed for Master of Arathi Basin,

and more importantly the last achievement I needed for Battlemaster.

So yes, I am now officially Battlemaster Gnomeaggedon, Justicar of Gnomeregan. Well I would be if you could chain titles… Guess I will stick with Gnomeaggedon of Gnomeregan.

Of course, with what comes next, you will probably re-title me Gnomeaggedon, Master Whinger of Gnomeregan (more…)

  • nor about the titles you show
  • nor for that matter if you have a 3200 arena rating.
  • I only care that you play to win, and do that well.

So we have a new guildy, a pvp loving guildy. I’ve been in WSG with him all weekend… school holidays.

A demotivational player

Yeah, he’s a young guy. His parents are younger than me.

I don’t care about that either. He plays his rogue well. Peeling is his favorite word. He’s a team player, setting up opportunities for the win. I like that, it’s the way I, and my mates play. Personal glory 2nd, win for the team 1st.

He has one annoying habit, one I haven’t had much personal experience with in a while and when I did it was related to PvE and Gearscore.

No good reason to have these screen shots

He idolizes gear, titles and arena ratings.

When we enter a BG, he is immediately inspecting the team.

Wow, she’s got a 2800 arena rating from last season.

That guy is a Battlemaster!

That warrior is sooo geared.

Look at that noob in greens/heirlooms/last season’s/PvE gear.

To me all of that is irrelevant. Sure it indicates that a player has won some battles, but ratings can be forged, titles can indicate a selfish player, gear indicates nothing more than a grind (more…)
