Honor in Battlegrounds


Some  people can PvP,

Others can’t but give it a good hard crack.

One  thing that is certain is that Battlegrounds are about HONOR!

Honor in Battlegrounds

Whether you are For the Horde!, or For the Alliance! battlegrounds are about honor.

There’s just one little problem…

The Definition of Honor.

Definitions of honor on the Web:

  • award: a tangible symbol signifying approval or distinction; “an award for bravery
  • bestow honor or rewards upon; “Today we honor our soldiers”; “The scout was rewarded for courageous action”
  • the state of being honored
  • the quality of being honorable and having a good name; “a man of honor” (more…)

There is a lot of talk about Mandatory authentication for WoW.

I think this is a great idea. Most people that don’t like it, don’t like it for the most feeble reasons.

It’s like seat belts…

Don’t make seat belts mandatory, I’m a safe driver!

Yet seat belts have saved more lives on the road than any other safety feature – the lives of the stupid and innocent alike.

Ship it with Cataclysm

This is the bit I don’t like.

It’s a great idea, make sure everyone gets an authenticator, then make authentication mandatory.

I still don’t like it.

I’ve got one! How many you got? How many do you need?

You see I’ve got one. I’ve got my Core Hound pet too. I read and hear a lot about people that have more than one. iPhone app, standard one, Blizzcon one… They’re collecting the set! (more…)

It’s the Tank’s Fault!


Nerf 'em!

BBB mentioned this the other day (did I tell you I love BBB? I always save up his posts and gorge myself on them!).

Well OK, he didn’t say it was the Tanks fault… but I’m good at taking a phrase out of context and trying to ram that down your throat. He did basically say that Tanks DPS is currently OP.

They should be TPS machines, not DPS machines.

Let’s face it, no one has to grind dailies in their tank spec any more (well, unless the off spec is heals I guess… Mmmm then a gain that isn’t so bad.. I was doing higher dps than the tank and one DPS in HVH the other night… yeah I was meant to be healing … Sssshhhh!)

Anyway, I believe…

No, I know, that one of the reasons that DPS & damage is so low for some dps toons is that the tanks are insane…

Well their damage output is insane.

No, my 1st statement was probably correct..

Tanks are INSANE!

Go on.. Nerf 'em!

One Wipe Pansies


No, not the pretty flower variety…

I’m pretty sure I have bitched about this before, most likely in a throw away line in a throw away post.

The thing is with my increased playtime, the increased gear availability, overgeared alts, the ROLFSTOMPA heroics and the LFG Naxx10 must have 5,000 GS and ICC achievement mentality that seems to permeate the game right now, it just seems that every time I enter a raid I am surrounded by…

One Wipe Pansies.

What is a One Wipe Pansy?

Maybe the most common example of their occurrence is the best way to answer that question.

Very Overgeared Arseholes!

Err, I mean VoA. 10 or 25, it makes no difference, although the effect is more pronounced in VoA25 (more…)

Hands up if you are a healer that is drinking more than usual lately?

NO!

See that’s the problem with healers, they just don’t get it!

BOOZE, not mana food!

  • If the DPS dies in the bad- HEALERS FAULT!
  • If the 40k (DPS masquerading as) Tank gets 3 shot in regular UK – HEALERS FAULT!
  • If the DPS die to the Whirlwind – HEALERS FAULT!
  • If the dps of the DPS is too low – HEALERS FAULT!
  • If their pet rabbit escapes from it’s cage, jumps on a ship to India and gets run over by a camel in downtown Delhi – HEALERS FAULT!
  • If the healer is OOM on every trash pull – HEALERS FAULT!
  • HEALERS FAULT!
  • HEALERS FAULT!
  • HEALERS FAULT!
  • HEALERS FAULT!
  • HEALERS FAULT!
  • HEALERS FAULT!
  • HEALERS FAULT!

What did I miss? Help me fill in the blanks! (more…)

It’s a little thing scratching at the back of my mind, but it’s become an aggravating pain since Dechion’s and BBB’s posts have been hijacked from arsehat behaviour to “Dechion is not 1337 enough to play in my sandpit”.

It has been refreshed by the relatively friendly combat occurring on Arioch’s  Clearcasting, starting in the comments of OK in UK, spawning a guest post by Dark/Soth and a rebuttal on DotsandHots which then lead to baseball analogies by Arioch, and even Jong’s point of view.

Heroics don’t belong to anyone and the certainly don’t belong to the 1337!

The objective of the is to provide fun while gearing you for later 1337ness.

Blizzard has complicated that recently with the random-dungeon-emblem-fest (more…)

I’ve got a GearScore… It’s somewhere between 1 and 5000. I know it was 4554 a week or so ago.

A friend looked me up while he snowman danced with me, otherwise I would have no idea.

I did some Ulduar

Off tangent for a moment, I’ll bring it back on course I promise.

Back a day or so before appearing on TNB, I did a couple of bosses in Ulduar. We only got Flame Leviathan and XT down, wiped on Razorscale and chucked it in. It was a late night, spur of the moment thing so no wucking furries.

Can you heal Ulduar10 hardmode?

I was in LookingForRaid when I got the whisper. I said I doubted it, but if it was normal I’d be ok.

He asked for GearScore and Achievements and I foolishly said yes (more…)

Yes folks, I’ve taken over. Sylus here from 4theHorde. One thing’s for sure, the crazies here at Armaggedon’s Coming must have really lost it! They let ME guest post???? Seriously??? ME?!?! I mean come on, he had to know what I’m capable of. I DO PLAY HORDE AFTER ALL! GASP!!!! Okay, seriously though. I know I’ve always been Hordecore and all, but this little guy’s befriended the rowdy crowd I roll with. To be quite honest, I’m not sure what he see’s in us anyway! Seriously, I mean we barely keep our own blog up to date, half of us take breaks that last months at a time, and then there’s the whole “real life” thing that we deal with so much. Seriously, half of you don’t even have a clue who I am, yet alone all of the others at 4theHorde. But, none the less, here I am! I guess that means he likes me? In a non gay orc/gnome way I guess. Totally platonic, of course.

Now, you may be asking yourself, “Gnome, what the crap is this Hordie doing on your blog???” (more…)

Mages piss me off!


Yep, strong words coming from a Mage.

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

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

I’m not the L2P kind of Gnome.

Neither am I the “here’s 10g see me in the morning” kind of Gnome.

I’m the “let me teach you tadpole” kind of Gnome… Generally…

Background

I rolled a Gnome Dwarf Night Elf Human Draenei Shaman. I was inspired by Larisa‘s baby Druid and Ydraisa’s comment about leveling in innocence.

Ultimately I want a healer, but don’t want another Pally, Druid or Priest. So I rolled a Shaman. I tried every Alliance race combination, knowing full well there was no choice in the matter. I tried them twice, three times, then accepted my only “option” was Draenei (more…)
