Thanks for all the good wishes folks…

Here was the little man on the day (on the left):

and here’s an old one of him driving the computer…

Gnomer & Out!

It’s my youngster’s birthday today, so no WoW last night, and no real post today.

But I thought I would leave you a photo from 2 years ago.  I still can’t get over how small, fragile and beautiful he was back then.

Of course he is a real little man now.  Knows how to swear (must be more careful), say G’day Mate and Carn’ the Blues.  Runs around the house with his prized Aussie Rules football (who needs a teddy when you can sleep with your footy!).

Anyway, until next week…

Gnomer and Out!

Zupa reaching out from beyond the grave and across servers?

Something strange happened to me the other night while running Kara.

It was just before the Opera, as we were huddling under the stairs to find out what the night’s performance was going to be, when….  well you see if you can spot the difference…

I’m a Hoarding Alliance.

No, I spelt it right, I hoard, not Horde.

I am not like some that hoard their 1st drop, or T1 gear (not that I ever got that), or collect pets (I do have my 1st mount and 1st non-combat pet etc).

No, that isn’t the sort of hoarding that is starting to bug me. I have enchanting mats, quest items, quests and “maybe-one-day gear”. (more…)

Hi folks, it’s that time again… Blog Azeroth topic of the week “What you need to know about [insert class here], in my case, I will be telling you about things from the perspective of my little Fire Mage.

Crowd Control.

As a fire mage I only have a few tricks up my overly generous sleeves.

Frost Nova – I can trap quite a few mobs for 8 seconds.

Blasts enemies near the caster for 99 to 111 Frost damage and freezes them in place for up to 8 sec. Damage caused may interrupt the effect.

  • 1st thing to note, 8 seconds isn’t a hell of a long time, and I have probably pissed a few of them off as well.
  • 2nd thing, it is likely to break, releasing all the mobs if you get a lucky crit.
  • If I frost nova in the vicinity of shackles etc, I will break them… sorry we are working towards the same end, I am just trying to keep the healers alive for another 8 seconds… please reshackle, sheep etc.
  • Generally I am only dropping this to protect someone, probably the healers so:
  1. Healers, move away from the mobs melee attacks if they are still hitting you, they wont follow.. well immediately anyway.
  2. Everyone else, either focus on the original target, or give the tank, shacklers etc a chance to get their mob(s) back under control (more…)

Ducking and Weaving – Fire #2


OK, I’m still nursing my wounds from Zupa‘s Ice Shards, sneaky frost wielding undead guy, jumping a tier… I didn’t see that coming!

So I am going to step back to full range, and start with Larisa‘s Arcance Subtlety.

To be honest with my 10/48/3 (or Arcane 10, Fire 48, Frost 3 who haven’t caught up with the shorthand) Classic Fire Raiding Spec I am done with Frost. There is another Fire Raiding Spec out there, commonly referred to as the Icy Veins Spec (2/48/11). The thing with this spec is it really doesn’t come into play until you are over 1,100 + damage. OK, so I am, but I’m old (ok maybe not that old), and have stuck with the Classic spec. Remember you can always compare standard Spec’s at Theorycraft-o-Matic by Lhivera.

However I am just beginning with Arcane. (more…)
