See, I Told You!


This is Odin’s (my son) favorite phrase when he does something we have warned him about, only to have it come true.

G.N.O.O.B. Rage

I expressed my frustration at Alliance EoTS groups the other day. Their practice of grabbing one tower then fighting over a flag that will give crap returns has made me frustrated and angry… Angry enough that I now wear a deserters buff rather than bang my head on my desk in frustration.

I just want to clearly show you what happens when one side grabs and controls the 4 towers & ruins (more…)

Errrgh…


awake at last

He woke suddenly from a deep, maybe unnatural slumber. He knew this place, it was the portal room in Dalaran.

asleep at the portal

A quick two fingered gesture and his mind was refreshed, his mental powers enhanced. Another simple gesture and his renewed Molten Armour flared, roasting the spiders and shriveling the cobwebs that had gathered on his body.

The last thing he remembered was porting to Dalaran as he had done hundreds of times before (more…)

What’s better…

  • 10 Regulars tackling Naxx?
  • 8 Regulars + 2 PuGs tackling Naxx?
  • 8 Regulars only tackling Naxx?

Crazy Thinking

I had this crazy idea mid-last-week, why lose 1/2 hour to 1 hour LF2M Normal Naxx, when the 8 of us could just give it a go by ourselves. Let’s face it, more often than not, 2 people go down in the 1st 15 seconds of any fight, so what’s going to be the difference…

Hey, there’s even an achievement for it, The Dedicated Few. (more…)

satisfied

It’s done Gnomeaggedon, and I think you’ll be satisfied with the results.

  • If you aren’t into streams of achievement screenshots, then you may not want to read any further.
  • If my post from yesterday about Achievement Envy rang some uncomfortable bells, likewise this isn’t the post for you.
  • If however you want to live vicariously through my many minor triumphs, then read on.

It all started on Thursday, yes some of my playtime envy has been sated, I have had some bonus time online (more…)

Achievement number gnome v. Achievement number

One of many envies, but one I have felt recently and, as is often the case with envy, for no good reason.

Achievement Envy

My recent envy attack was based on Larisa’s comment. Yes I am envious of Larisa, in more ways than one. But, this is about achievements, in the1st instance, so let’s start there.

I am an achievement addict, and I need help.

If I am honest with myself, when I read/hear about someone else picking up an achievement, I shrivel a little inside (more…)

Hey Folks,

I know I was a little negative yesterday about the Bonfire reset, but in reality that has worked out very nicely for me… it means that I have been able to clear up the Midsummer Festival in just over one day without relying on dailies…

I know I should be doing another blogday post… but that will have to wait, as I am at home looking after the young Gnome…

Anyway, when I started this midsummer jaunt, I was relying upon the great strategies of other bloggers… then at one point when I was struggling to find a bon fire, I hit WoWHead and discovered TomTom settings…  Most of them were all over the place, so I started compiling them, only to find one post with most of them…

Anyway, reproduced here for your lack of searching pleasure, the Tom Tom coordinate commands for the Mid Summer Bonfires.  Note, for a nice path to Alliance success, check out this blog post at Pookies Is Not A Bear.

Just paste each line into your chat window, or create a Macro and throw each block in (more…)

So a week ago I embarked on the long, long daily quest grind to get Exalted with the Sons of Hodir.

There was only one reason for doing so, and it had nothing to do with the reported excellent quest line, daily gold gains, or even the quiet chuckle at the innuendo that surrounds the Sons of Hodir… Thrusting Hodir’s spear… seriously…

Greater Inscription of the Storm

No, it was all about one thing, and one thing only, increasing my performance.

I am not a big fan of dailies.  I am still not exalted at Sunwell, even though every man and their 2nd Alt is.  Argent Tournament is one of those things to kill time.  The idea of doing 40 days worth of dailies, probably 1 or 2 a week, just sent shivers down my spine.  I had heard that you can “glitch” the quest line (more…)

Reader mail:

Dear Ambassador Gnomeaggedon of Gnomeregan, Master of the meters, Carpeter of raid floors and all round good Gnome.

Long time reader, never a commenter with a question.

My ragtag bunch of almost a 10 man raid have decided to declare one Friday a month as Old World night.

There are only 7 of us, but we can usually pick up a few more to clear Naxx10, so I think we can grab a few more if required.

In our bunch of stormtroopers we have.

  • Me: DPS meter champion rogue, top them all, no matter how many slackers are in the party (4,9,24). I can and will log and bring on my healy Priest which is pretty competent as well.
  • Mr. Offspec: You may have heard of him earlier today. 2nd best DPS as shaman, can heal in a pinch. Also rolls with Druid, well geared for all specs.
  • UberGnome: he gets by OK, only tops meters if he takes me or the Shaman out 1st, but looks good naked, especially with his 3 mirror images. Great green beard btw (more…)

We failed to clear the Arachnid Quarter in the required 20 minutes last week, but only by a bee’s private part (or maybe that’s a spider’s private part under the circumstances).

It was close, and maybe if we had been just a little bit more settled, or maybe all of us on Vent, we would have done it.

What really struck me though, was the way that knowing there was a timer and an achievement at the end of that same timer, really gelled the raid into fast action (more…)
