So last night I log in to knock of some quests and do some rep dailies.

There appeared to be some issues since the patch:

  • Lag….intermittent but pretty bad
  • Outfitter….broken
  • Auctioneer….broken

I could have played around trying to fix the addons but decided these little annoyances don’t matter, they will be fixed in due course.  I had worked out how to add an item to an outfitter set by playing a little bit.

So I  decide why sit and complain about the lag and the broken addons. Use my time to something usueful and knock of the easy daily rep quests on my list. (more…)

Interfaces, a warning

Don’t drink, install & change keybindings!

Thanks for the suggestions on interfaces. I downloaded SpartanUI and after a fair amount of screwing about got a reasonable interface happening. The issue still remains that the interface isn’t built for my resolution, so somethings aren’t quite right. Cast bars are the biggest offenders, but I need to make a final decision on whether it stays or not.

Never the less, happy enough with the look, and inspired by Euripedes, I decided to redo my key bindings.

This involved, apart from remapping most of my abilities, reversing the order that my most used spells were bound.

Anyway, happy with my choices of keybindings, I set off to the Borean Tundra to help D.E.H.T.A.

Hey, and while I am at it, let’s celebrate the new interface and keybindings with a “few” quiet whiskies.

Mmmmmm bad combination (more…)

ETA 70 to 80 in 28 weeks?

Before I went on holidays for two months, I gave my mates an estimate on when I would be joining them at 80 and we could rock & roll the instances and raids together once more.

My estimate was April.

Of course my friends all challenged this, I think to some extent thinking this was some sort of “extended finger” towards them and an indication of my desire to play with them as a group.

The thing is, I think I may have grossly underestimated my level cap arrival date. (more…)

Dumbo and Gnomer


Gnomeaggedon and his Elephant friend
No Northrend

I got a new non-combat pet!

I was so excited that D.E.H.T.A. Gave me a mammoth cub of my very own, that I stopped for an extended photo session (luckily my son didn’t see it, or I would be spending all of my WOW time parading the elephant around). (more…)

Bring on level 81

Let’s have Arch-classes, level 81 characters, one per class per server. Only one for both Horde and Alliance, it is faction independent.

Of course you get extra talents, spells and abilities – temporarily.

When you reach Arch level status, you get 1 day of grace, where you can’t be challenged for the position. After that, any level 80 character of the same class can challenge you for it.

The achievement screen will monitor this achievement in the same was that clubs record their past presidents. Arch-Class from 14/01/2009-16/01/2009, 20/01/2009-17/04/2009.

In my mind this is better than some 1st to 80 Arch-Druid or Arch-Mage achievement title. This is real, this is, I not only got to level cap, but I am the best of my class. (more…)

Why Druids are redundant

People often say Mages are redundant.

Tree Hugger Dave has several drafts explaining why the “Deli” Class is no longer necessary.

Food – Any Gnome and their dog can now make a feast.
Water – As above, and why wouldn’t you get drunk to boot?
Dps – what DPS?  Hunter’s non-combat pets do more dps
Poly – Frogs anyone (I must admit I recently discovered I had been replaced as the CC of choice in favor of the Shaman.

I, on the otherhand, would like to suggest that Druids are redundant.

Read on! (more…)
