Nothing, nada, not a single brass razzoo, just a small crappy pile of dust.

I think it’s time to hit the AH and buy a whole bunch of worthless junk in the hope that the RNG smiles on me twice per boss, once on the drop and once on the roll.

But before I get into that, let me bring you up to speed on by week.

As you know I had been contemplating chucking it in, but I got news through the week that a couple of mates might be rejoining us. Admittedly one won’t be clear of his other obligations for a couple of months, but there is light at the end of his tunnel (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…)

Saturday Night’s alright to Party: but leave the Death Knights at Home!

The weekend that was… pretty good when all is said an done.

Friday night was Naxx10 night, but it took a while to get the group together.

All 7 of us mates where ready and waiting, but some nights it’s so hard to find just one more.

Unfortunately the “one more” we got was a Mage…. (Actually fortunately, he wasn’t that well geared, but knew his job, and his main dropped in to help us with Gluth) (more…)

Last weekend I got to knock over Naxx25 with my guild, which was a great experience.

I started this weekend out knowing that I wasn’t up for anything as grand.  I knew that I wasn’t going to be raiding with my guild for 2 reasons.

  1. I wasn’t going to really be available till late, as I was babysitting.
  2. I really wanted to give my time to my mates instead.

When I logged on I raced over to the Argent Tournament grounds and struggled to do anything… I mean anything.  The quests may seem great to many, but all that lost flying time makes this casual raider a sad boy.  On top of that the jousting isn’t going all that well for me.

I have decided that the whole charging thing is a bit too hard when I am 0.5-1 second behind the AI, so I am doing it the hard way with shield breakers and hand-to-hand.  If I don’t get it right, the NPC opponent just laughs at me because I am taking too long. (more…)

My mates joined a guild to raid. When they did so, they clearly stated in their application that they couldn’t raid Friday nights, as this night was already taken to play with other mates (like me). However, they would offer up any spare places in our 10 man raids to their guildies that were at a loose end.

Turns out two of my mates are 2/3 of the best dps in the guild and knowing my mates, the rest of them would be in the top of their fields.

This is sort of beside the point though.

The problem they are facing has been accentuated over the last 2 weeks with me doing 25 man Naxx.

You see, their guild doesn’t have enough to field a 25 man group, and they refuse to pug the extra numbers.

They can field about 16 on any given night, so too many for a 10 man, yet too few for a 25.

They won’t pug the extra 9 for one reason. (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…)

Why can’t we all just get along?


Why can’t we all just get along?

A couple of mates were discussing whether Blizz would every allow Horde and Alliance to group together.

Me being all powerful and knowledgeable stated for a fact it would never happen.

My mate pointed out that according to Warcraft RTS lore, Horde and Alliance have banded together.

So what do you think, will Horde and Alliance stand side by side at some pint in the future?

Gnomer and Out!

Kara the new Deadmines?


Kara is the New Deadmines

ZA is the new Wailing Caverns

Easy Peasy.

Seriously, so little challenge that I felt like we were boosting some low level alts through Deadmines and Wailing Caverns. (more…)
