Save a Soul TODAY!

I have shown you my Lock, now show me yours!

Yeah folks, that’s right, there is little time left if you want to get your hands on one of the two cards up for grabs.

At this very moment in time, your entry could easily be a winner… but only if you get it to be before the 18th of May.. this Tuesday!

I haven’t checked in with the Warlocks to see their Mage kill count, but I’d hate them to win this with a few little do

Twisted Nether Blogcast has moved it’s Live recording to Tuesday nights, the 1st show… Tuesday 18th of May.

Unfortunately this time coincides with my Wednesday working day, but if you get your entries to be before the show starts, I will (try to) drop a line to Fim and maybe your win can get squeezed onto the show.

The prizes:

for Best Screenshot of you turning Warlocks into Non-Combat pets, is Papa Hummel’s Old Fashioned Pet Biscuits

For best 10 step program, is The Footsteps of Illidan (Yeah, take that Locks… here’s you pin-up used to sell our 10 step program!)

Sheep’em, Shoot’em or Rehab’em

At the end of the day I don’t care how you get them back on the right path… just don’t wait too long, or I will have to give the cards back!

Gnomer and Out!

He was looking a lot worse until, like cats with a mouse, we chased him around the arena to get a good polymorph shot.

Mind you, he didn’t last long after I confirmed I had the shot.

He is one of many this week, but he’s the one I remembered to screenshot.

As for your LockShots!

Only 8 days (7 in my part of the world) till I pick winners for my Lock Rehab program

So send me either:

  • Your LockScreenShot, or
  • Your 10 Steps of Illidan Rehab program (come on Syrana, I know you want to… you know the addiction from the inside)

I figure I will give the American’s a fighting chance, so I will not close it until midnight on the 18th in some other land… otherwise I will be closing the comp on my 18th.. which will be the 17th for most of you.

But I wont announce it!

I will decide the winners and they will be announced on Twisted Nether, well No, I’m hoping that Fim will tie Nibuca down long enough to get her to announce the winners… so there better be winners, or you will have a  Locktress laughing at you Mages, Hunters, Shamans… who am I kidding, she will be laughing at everyone but Locks.

I am looking forward to the damage that Cynwise and Psynister are going to do to each other in the name of a loot card.

BTW, did you catch Psynister’s Twisted Nether Blogcast the other day?

No?

Me neither… but that is the magic of podcasts.. I expect it will be up in the next day or two (more…)

The 10 steps of Illidan rehab program for wayward locks is not an easy program to survive.

Occasionally a Lock will revert to their soul stealing ways.

They have been known to fight back occasionally at the kind caring Mages (and others) delivering the rehab treatment.

  • Sometimes it’s with extreme violence such as Murder a Mage campaigns
  • Sometimes it’s candy coating (Mmmm Lock Candy) their backhanded compliments.
  • Once in a while we find they have smuggled a soulstone into the clinic and stashed it in their mattress.

Now while the Locks may react violently, lashing out at their carers, we at the Dalaran Rehab Clinic for Lost Souls believe that intervention is the best policy.

Experience has shown that a Lock with a soul stone does not treat death as permanent, so summary execution is often not the best way.

Restraining them for 10 seconds, giving them the chance to appreciate the Pyroblasts charging before their little piggy eyes, provides the opportunity to talk some sense into them.

So while some Locks are awarding prizes for trophy Mage kill shots, we here at the clinic are looking for examples of extreme restraint under extreme felfire.

Here is what I want…

  1. A screenshot of you subduing a Lock through the age old art of Polymorph (or other class CC… Bonus points for Locks subduing Locks)
    Who doesn’t want a cute bunny lock with their cute felpuppy?

    Or

  2. Your 10 steps of Illidan rehab program.

The winners (yes, I know we are all winners) will receive a loot card code (yes it’s true – I am giving something away and it isn’t stolen!)

Not just one, but 2 loot cards!

The prizes: (more…)

So I got asked this question the other day in a comment.

I have to assume that it’s a serious question as this is a serious blog… right?

So I’m going to give you my Magely view on what a Warlock is, and all being well, we might get a response from my Nymesis, a warlock that’s done his time in rehab, seen the light and run screaming at it.

What a Warlock is NOT.

They are not Mages!

They are jealous individuals without a natural affinity to magic. Think of your little brother that can’t do math, therefore doesn’t get your parents praise, doesn’t get the teachers praise and definitely doesn’t win any awards for arithmetic.

If only I could be powerful and love like Gnomeaggedon!

But that doesn’t happen. Scorned by family and friends, ignored by the family pet, shunned by even apprentice Mage trainers, they are shallow, hollow, wannabes.

They are not Hunters!

Physically weak, they don’t have the stamina to take a few punches while delivering a wingclip. Not strong enough to pull a bow, or cock a rifle. They aren’t even dexterous enough to dual wield.

Did I mention they are ignored by the family pet? Yeah, not even sooty the cat, singed during their magely siblings toddler experiments will willingly associate with a Warlock (more…)

Slooooooooow Faaaaaaaaaall


I LOVE IT!

Yes I’ve had it for a long time, but pre-glyphs it was “expensive”

Only a light feather

I hear you exclaim.

ONLY A LIGHT FEATHER!

  • and the grinding!
  • or the silvers at the AH!
  • and the bag space!
  • and the repair bill when you forget you ran out yesterday and haven’t restocked!
  • and the bigger repair bill 10 minutes later when you forget again!

So although I may have gotten it years ago, even though I even had a special dismount/slowfall macro, even though for the cost of a glyph I have been able to throw them around like 1 copper candies…

I haven’t used it.

It was a forgotten skill, one with more risk than reward.

Now, now, I cast it all the time. I have to stop every 29 seconds for fear I will be without it.

OK, alright, I admit that might be a slight exaggeration… I can wait 35 seconds, maybe.

I use it in Stormwind.

Do you use it in Stormwind?

Why not? (more…)

Check these out for the inner WARlock in you….lol.

Keep up the awesome posts man.

Warlock (Forums / Talent Calculator)

•Shadow Embrace: Now stacks 3 times (Up from 2) Healing reduction effect reduced to 2/4/8/10% (Down from 3/6/9/12/15%)

I been sitting on that for a few days… needless to say I was somewhat gobsmacked… I’m been walking around the house now for days in a kind of stupor…

It’s good to know my readers care enough to taunt me… My Warlock readers no less…

Of course there has to be some good new in the patch notes…

PvP

  • All healing abilities (including items such as potions) will be decreased in effectiveness by 10% when in Battlegrounds, Arenas, or Wintergrasp.

Umm yeah… OK, maybe not…

Ohh hang on… what’s this?

Mage:

  • Working as intended
  • Will still deliver Warlock’s Imps on a platter!

  • My Feedreader is consistently at 1,000+ unread posts.
  • My Mage category is consistently at 150+ unread posts
  • My Shaman category is consistently at 90+ unread posts

Dont get me started on the others…

Anyway, this means I do stupid things like hassle harried history students about things that I could probably work out myself, while my feedreader laughs at me because 2 posts away are tons of posts about Fire Mages in General and Fire PvP Specifically.

So apologies up front to Rip if I have dragged him away from his studies.  If you have started, don’t stop.  I haven’t found a source of Fire Mages enchants and gemming wisdom yet…

Meanwhile here are some links.. (more…)

Tanks need Mages because


Mages..
Who needs Mages?

Tanks need Mages!

They don’t need us for healing admittedly, although I have popped a bandage on a tank before when we were the last two standing.

No, Tanks need Mages for the challenge of playing a Tank, we make life… Errr hmmm… Fun!

Aggro

Mages measure their ability to play their class by DPS. Tanks measure their ability via TPS (more…)

Mages piss me off!


Yep, strong words coming from a Mage.

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

mail from Squidly to Gnomeaggedon

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

Squidlys PvP Achievements

Tip 1: JUST DO IT!

Definitely do it if you are still on the leveling grind, you will be picking up enough XP to make it a worthwhile diversion to your questing and grinding and you get access to epics. Epics which apart from being purple will be guaranteed upgrades more often than not.

The boys at ForTheHorde! reminded me that I needed to get back into Pee Vee Pee and not worry about the Transient Twinks, so I have been getting in and getting dirty.

More Tips.

Tip 2: Go Resto, Go!

I mentioned how much I was enjoying Elemental in BGs, but that doesn’t stop me shopping around. I even asked the question over at Addicted to Heals shaman blog.

Last night the decision was made for me due to Alzheimer’s (more…)
