This is a post in many parts, most of them not mine, but let me get straight to the cookies and cocoa, because I know you want to comment but the blog police (as opposed to the Blizzard police) are bringing you down man.

Aunty TJ mentioned a little Firefox Plugin…

Carbonite, GTFO of my Dalaran!


AddonSpamFu01

  • WoW disconnects
  • Lagaran
  • Freeze frame boss fights

Sound familiar?

  • Uninstall Lagonite!
  • Ignore Lagonite users!

Only a few days ago I was musing that WoW disconnects had gotten smarter. There is no real evidence of this, but a couple of things that the comments highlighted were:

  1. Since 3.2.2 disconnects have become more frequent, and
  2. Thanks to Lethal’s link there are many ways to improve your play experience, including shafting mods with large messaging requirements.

Driving solution to disconnects

My disconnecting stopped once I did a manual update of my net and video drivers (via windows update and vendor website), so that’s a great 1st place to start (more…)

Skill Priority mods


My most loyal reader writes in to ask a question:

oh scorchy green-haired one:

I was listening to The Instance podcast last week, and they mentioned an addon that sounded great to me: Watcher. It’s supposed to help you play your class more effectively, and of course, I want to do so. the only problem? This addon has no mage love. I guess there are other addons out there for other caster classes (they mentioned facemelter & others), but I have yet to find one for mages.

Do you know of one that works like this?

The Scorchy Green-haired one responds:

I heard about that on The Instance as well and was a little curious, not curious enough to follow it up until you wrote in mind you, but curious none-the-less.

So I had a look… Looks like an awesome mod, but I don’t think it’s for us (more…)

If you have ever been out of the game for any period of time you were most likely pulled up pretty short when you logged back in again.

More likely than not you fired up the PC and WoW on a whim with the desire to have 10 minutes in game to see if the spark was still there (or had returned).

Of course, rather than getting right into it, you had to sit through the patch downloads.  If you were smart, you would have started the download just before you head to bed, but if you didn’t, you probably found yourself checking back in every 10 minutes to see that things had only progressed by 1%… then the installation starts… (more…)

GnomeGoggles: Learning Aid


One Noobaggedon problem solved, knowing what new skills you just learned at the trainer.

Another Noobaggedon event caused. I will never need this with my one and only toon… Right?

Problem Solved.

My noob complaint was that when you learn new skills (generally because you have just hit a new level with new skills and talent points), visit the trainer and madly select and learn all those new skills…

You have nice flashing tabs on your spell book, but as soon as you open the tab, the flashing stops and their is no indication of what amongst the myriad of skills is new.

Enter Learning Aid. (more…)

Dear WordPress… Stop eating my posts!

Why can’t you handle an interruption caused by a phone call? You app is designed to run on an iPhone?

Why do you tell me you recovered the post, let me save and finish the post… Yet when I open it again, there is nothing but a blank page!

Here we go again…

I have a dirty dual spec secret… (more…)

wowmatrix

I have sort of taken a bit of a break over the last week, so sorry for the lack of posts and responses to comments.

Over the last week two of my posts have received a lot of attention:

Sorry to ruin your day on both counts.

Anyway my take on the WoWMatrix blockage. (more…)
