I Pity the Gnome


Yeah, so love is in the air…

Ironically I have time this year to complete this achievement for the very reason that the only love that I have been breathing lately is the unconditional love of Odin.. well assuming he gets the icecream.. the ball.. the Spiderman action figure and 80% possession of my PC.

When I grabbed that screenshot I was feeling a little melancholy.. I mean really, unless you are a gaming couple, where can the love possibly be in a MMORPG (without the RPG of course… Although [ANAL} Pyroblast does kind of have a romantic ring to it).

Aint Gnome’a do it!

I promise myself I will not roll a Goblin when BurningWrathOfTheCataclysm comes out,.  Goblins are pretty low on my ladder… (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…)

Midsummer Festival /fail


Geeez… I seem to have a bit of a Fail theme going on at the moment.

Anyway, the good news is that Blizzard fixed all those problems you folk have been experiencing if you did the Midsummer Festival activities last year…

With the added bonus that the bon fires have been reset, and you can do them again!

From Spooncraft:

Hey congratulations folks who did the Midsummer stuff last year and have felt screwed this year. Blizzard has applied a little fix on the servers that reset the quests so players regain access to all those blossoms. You need something like 400 of them to purchase all the gear required for the hot pole dance meta.

We are in the process of applying an in-game fix that will restart all of the quests associated with the Midsummer Fire Festival event and allow players to complete them once again. If you are in the process of completing an achievement such as Extinguishing Kalimdor, this fix will reset your progress and you will need start over. This fix will require realms to be restarted.

So where’s the fail in that? (more…)

42

Yep, it’s my 42nd birthday, as much as I might to deny it, and as much as many people look surprised to discover I am that old. (but they say you are only as old as the woman you feel… So that’s only 29).

Funnily enough I don’t feel 42, even stranger is the fact that I think I have been 42 for the last 12 months. Every time someone has asked over the last 12 months I have either said “nearly 42″ or just straight out “42″, I don’t know why…

Odin commissioned (from Mum) a crayon picture of him in blue shoes and gloves with Dad in red shoes, as well as Mum… Cooking. I think the 2nd is a worry. Maybe it’s time I learnt to cook something other than bacon. (more…)

Or the “weekend” that was.

Who’s that under those bushes?

I was caught out by Ragnarogue, sprung royally, four fingered hands hands in the chocolate achievement pot.

Yes, after swearing black, blue and green that I wouldn’t participate in NobleGarden.

After composing an “I won’t use Polymorph: Rabbit spell” macro, I snuck off Wednesday night and submitted my beautiful Gnomely body to the rabbit transformation and grovelled around under bushes hunting for eggs.

  • I blame it on Nib(uca) for introducing the Mage patch notes section to TNB (don’t worry, won’t be any Mage news this week…)
  • I blame it on Twitterfolk for talking about Cadbury chocolate eggs.
  • I blame it on my (non-WoW playing) mate from Sydney that drove to Melbourne to celebrate my birthday on my singular weekly WoW Friday night.
  • I blame it on my pathetic weak willed red haired blog writing avatar.

help-requiredThis is a guide for two groups of people, and you may fit into both groups.

  1. Players from Oceanic, or high latency servers, and
  2. Players that find themselves twitch deficient.

There are plenty of great guides out there on the blogs, much better than this one, but if you are struggling, then maybe this will help.

I will get to the strategy, but first some background rambling.

I have been playing WoW for a fair while, from before the Oceanic servers came into existence.

I play on PvE servers for a very good reason:

LAG

Err I mean latency.

Old Skool Latency

Back when I first started, on an US server, PvP and dueling went a little like this (more…)

I Pity the Love Fool


heartbroken

I give up, well I gave up anyway.

Love is in the air was my breaking point, but I have felt similar levels of frustration with other events.

spell_brokenheart

I pity the no-love fool

Events such as this can only be completed and the final achievement gained if you:

  • Are desperate and Dateless
  • Are married in-game
  • You can drop by the PC at the very least every hour on the hour (which ignores the additional 20 minutes each hour required to hit up NPCs)

If you are married in real life (or the equivalent), you are screwed. While in RL this may be a good thing, in-WoW, this is a bad thing.
