BigBearButt outed me to Matticus on Twitter…

busted

Out of the closest… again.

So just for the record… yes I have a Warlock, an Affliction Warlock..

But I am wondering what rock the Bear has been hibernating under, because the rest of you you know I have had it for a long time.. some time in 2008 I started my Lock Twinking adventures with Twinking your level 19 Warlock: Part 1. Introduction. The thing is, I could never bring myself to finish the experience, so the Lock was languishing at level 17 for 4 years.

There has been a long quiet spell in our guild lately and Dara and I found ourselves playing BGs over and over again… it was starting to get stale. One of the problems with BGs is the scenery doesn’t change too often, so I decided to change the personal scenery and add the Lock to my BG stables (currently housing Mage, Shaman, Druid, and an unloved DK).

So the Lock got dragged out of storage, Dara dug up her young Shaman and we started the leveling process.

That didn’t last long… REROLL!

Not long after that we rerolled… Did I say I liked the Lock?

Now we had two alts each, A Lock and a Pally for me… A Shaman and a Rogue for Dara… leveling in tandem.

One of the advantages of leveling on one character for 5 levels, then switching to the other, is there isn’t much time to get sick of the 1st one… at the 1st sign of boredem, we just switch toons.

One of the disadvantages is it feels like we just completed that painful collection quest… oh yeah we did… on the other toons.

That Mage…

There was a moment, early on, where I found myself face to face with a Horde Mage in WSG.

So I killed a Mage!

and yes I liked it.

Stupid Mage should have iceblocked…

Lessons learned

Our “juniors” are now well into their 70’s and some things are very clear now (more…)

No Mage Food = No Mage Heals!


Let me rephrase that for those Mages amongst us without an Arcane Intellect buff

No Mage Food = No Mage Heals!

Ohh that came out the same… I guess I don’t think it’s that hard to understand.

For a while there I was getting so annoyed (and it isn’t the 1st time I have been annoyed about this), that as soon as I zoned into a BG and saw a Mage, but no table I would write in BG chat…

No Mage Food = No Mage Heals!

Livingbomb is a STD


My first appreciation of the power of STDs in WoW came from one of those (supposedly) hated sources. In fact it caused me to subscribe to a blog that really I have little to nothing in common with, yet still read and joust with on a frequent basis.

Killing ‘em Slowly was the blog and the post I read was from the dirty filthy Lock of the duo. It was a perfect example of the spreading of STDs and the (im)moral victories that can be obtained through them. We can’t find that post, maybe my memory is failing, but I still clearly remember a post where a boss was killed just as the last raid member went down, one last tick of a dot from a now deceased Lock and the victory was theirs.

Of course a pure, pious, pulpit wielding Gnome like myself would never live amongst those with STDs, let alone gain one and spread it. Spread it not only without conscience, bit with glee.

No, no, never!

Never would we hear of the pure engaging in underworld activities. Never would they be caught in the arms of an illicit lover.

However, I would engage in Leprechaun like terrorist activities involving the laying of time delayed bombs that rip the face off my opponents and their celebrating friends.

You see, I am a Fire Mage

lol… get it?

Fire

Mage

Fire Mage!

Yeah, OK, whatever… I can’t be held accountable for how highbrow your sense of humor is.

Really, what did you expect from a Gnome… /serious? (more…)

Maybe I’m in denial


I’m a Mage…

I know I’m a Mage…

I’m a Mage dammit!

Yet why do I constantly see signs that I might be something other, something more insidious, one of the unlucky ones…

A Warlock!

Mana Obscura Mage Community Forums

Not one, but TWO new community forums have opened, both dear to my heart.

I think I’m a little delirious, because you know, the title of this post probably has nothing to do with the contents of the post..

let me check…

Ummm no, not really, err, maybe kinda.

No Yankees, but there is some Fire Mage Talent commentary

** WTF! **

So, how ’bout that new 31 point talent tree?

Is the question I got asked, to which I responded…

31 point talent tree?

Yeah, a Gnome with his finger on the pulse… wrong pulse, but there is a pulse there somewhere and a vein, maybe just give me another dozen attempts to jab that needle in…

So what’s the best way for me to approach this… yeah leave it to someone else…

That little distraction of a bar room brawl between the Hunters and the Good (capital G so you understand it’s about us Mages), has not distracted us from our common enemy.

Some…

… may think we have dropped the ball, turned our backs, forgiven them for past indiscretions.

Which is why, while I mourn the loss of a Great Mage blogger and rejoice at his tardy switch to fiction.

I mean, who can not love a category list like this:

I do not forget that which the Warlocks have forged.  In fact, inspired by Rip’s words such as:

Saresa. In honour of warlocks such as yourself, every six months I level one to twenty and then delete it whilst cackling.

and

Megan. I’d let you corpse camp me any day. If you know what I mean. And I mean SEX.

Hang on, that last one doesn’t quite fit what I am really trying to say… but I am inspired to queue on the corpse pile.

I second Rip’s thoughts on Jong as well… I mean any man with the audacity to tame BigBearButt for his alt Hunter is a god among gods. (and if you missed Jong’s temp post… well… maybe it’s time you subscribed to his secret feed)

Anyway.. back on topic, I to have been tardy in revealing the other entries in the Save a Soul Today competition I was running.

There is a kind of strange irony in these last two entries.. if you recall, I was calling upon Mages (primarily) to either CC and screenshot a Warlock, or describe a 10 step rehabilitation program for the poor lost souls (no not the stones, the evil keepers of the stones).

The irony is, that these two entries are from.. (more…)

Here I am!

I’m the misleading Mage..

I mean it has to be me, right?

There are only two Mage bloggers and one of them give misleading information.

Well, I don’t give accurate theorycrafting mumbo-jumbo that is more appropriate in an engineering manual.

Which poses a dilemma… if I am the misleading Mage, who is the one with the good information?

It could have been Euripedes… NO NOT THAT euripides, OUR Euripedes… the good one, the cool one, the one we are crying about losing but excited about his fiction blog.

It could be one of the other 69 (/snicker) Mages on my Mage blog roll… more maybe the other dozen that I have been too busy to add.

It could have been Larisa.. after all, she is a respected blogger… she’s a blogging Mage, if not a Mage Blogger… well she is that, was that, her earlier posts go very close to theorycraft, but really, like all Mages she has grown beyond the numbers, the rotations, the…

you’re a noob if you don’t do x

She is not just intelligent, she is sophisticated.

Alright.. she’s HAWT! (but maybe only a Gnome can appreciate that!)

More to the point, maybe only Mages can appreciate that.. you see there are some very important differences between Hunters and Mages and this is very apparent in the bloggers that write about them

We is Smart, they is dumb!

Well, of course intelligence is relative.. (more…)

Level of difficulty

I got a couple of great entries for this part of the contest. I also got a running commentary from Prelimar about the difficulties of capturing Locks.

I don’t think he had problems capturing them, just screen-shotting them, particularly in Wintergrasp where the little buggers run in packs.

Alterac Valley, Isle of Conquest and Eye of the Storm aren’t particularly screenshot friendly zones either. To be honest it’s rarely a PvP zone, with many an AV flashing by with Drek being the only encounter and as for those docks…. However, if you do manage to find someone to beat down they have mates who may disagree with your desire to “pacify, tag and release”.

Our winner says:

I did mine during Battlegrounds.  It was tough though.  Not every BG had a lock on the other team hehehe.

AV was a nightmare as both sides were fighting in the road and often times I’d have a rogue or warrior on me while trying to cyclone a lock and get a pic.  I’m traumatized to say the least and gave up a few branches on this task for sure.  Unfortunately I didn’t get rid of my tool bars, too much pressure while I’m getting pummeled and doing screenies.

Taking it to a new level

So as the level of difficulty is already established for this task at a high level. One would expect at best one frenzied, blurry screenshot of a lonely Lock.

Yet the winner came out of this with 4 screenshots, a price on her head and a wanted poster as proof of her ability to subdue Locks when they should be at their most powerful.

The irony for me in this is, that while Locks are putting a price on her head to stop the CC, I’d be putting a price on her head to join the campaign for Lock rehabilitation.

Unfortunately the winner isn’t a Mage… Well she is a Mage, or was a Mage, but like many Mages is experimenting with something a little different… A Druid.

Some might suggest that Druids are Priests of Nature… Personally I like to think of them as Bush Mages… There is definitely a bit of Arcane in them.

The clincher about this entry for me is in the last pane. While the Blueberry is humorous, it’s the name in big red letters that caught my eye immediately (more…)

  • I have consulted the Oracles (well, my Oracle pup at least).
  • I’ve tossed the Warlock bones (some just can’t be saved OK… I’m a great believer in “waste not, want not”, so I have a side business flogging wards of protection from Locks to desperate, but dim witted Warriors).
  • I’ve read and reread the entries and I am unhappy to say that the winner isn’t a Gnome!

However, while this race my not be playable for a few months yet, I can see that they have the makings of great Wizards.

So, without further ado, the winner of The Footsteps of Illidan loot code is…

Actually… Twisted Nether Blogcast live as this post goes live (8pm).. so you could go listen to that right…?
