What to do at 80… Maybe a little of this…

So I hit 80 the other day… you may have read that far

This left me in a quandary.

I have promised myself I will quest right through Northrend before I instance or raid.

I have promised myself I will revisit the old world before I Instance and Raid the newest world.

I have promised myself I will be strong…

But I am weak… (more…)

The end of WoWMatrix as we know it?

Kadomi from Tank Like a Girl brought this to my attention on Twitter this morning.

Curse and WoWInterface working together to help protect our authors and other site-users

Basically WoWAce and Curse have taken action against WoWMatrix after repeated requests for WoWMatrix to change their model of operations.

It will be interesting to see whether WoWMatrix change their playstyle… or not.

Meanwhile, if you haven’t yet, time to get yourself the Curse Client or the WoWInterface Manager!

What’s the best first time toon

I was wondering this morning, if you had a friend that decided to play WoW for the first time, what class and race would you recommend they roll.

My first character

My very first character was a warrior. I was at a LAN and a friend handed over their PC and suggested I try WoW.

Experience in most games had shown best 1st character is a warrior mainly for better survivability. Once you have won the game you reroll increasingly challenging characters usually ending in a Mage class.

I played that warrior for an hour or so, then gifted with a copy of the game (friends FTW!), I promptly rolled a Tauren Hunter, because the Warrior bored me.

What would you recommend?

So assuming your friend, partner, relative is going to be playing primarily on their own, no RaF etc.

  • What class would you suggest they roll and why?
  • Would you also recommend a race and this starting zone (for viewing pleasure or convenience)?

Discuss (more…)

This is really just for one person

This is really just for one person… Syrana.

She seems to have taken a strange liking to naked Gnomes…

So what could be better than one naked Gnomeaggedon?

I don’t know about you, but I have always liked the idea that I could work an 8 hour day, but if I finish my work in 6 hours, I could just go home.

Unfortunately I am not in that position in my real life… but could I be in that position in my blog life?

You see this post is post 365 366!

So I have written and posted (yeah, 365 366 doesn’t include the drafts and abandoned posts) a leap year’s worth of material in 285 days… actually, if you only consider my time in front of the PC, that’s 365 366 posts in 232 days (I was in India for a couple of months) (more…)

Spring Cleaning…

Spring Autumn Cleaning has occurred on my blogroll

I haven’t deleted too many, just those that really really have gone… without a forwarding address.

If your WoW blog is missing, drop me a ling via Contact Gnome above.

It was interesting to note how many of last year’s prolific blogs have gone stale.. strangely around the release of WoLK.

I am leaving them… I have seen one resurrection this week, there may be more.

Another one of those, “I did this, I got that posts”, but my screenshot trigger finger is itchy, and I will be buggered if I aren’t going to torture you with my “holiday slideshow”.

So pull up a pew, prop your head at just the right angle to convince me you are still awake, and let those “sleep nods” acknowledge your appreciation for my awesomeness!

I know it’s a small thing, but I just love the way people are knocking up campfires around Dalaran while doing their cooking dailies… it makes it so much more convenient than heading back to the inn to cook up the latest dish before doing the delivery boy thing.
Latest in the range of Mage disguises is the Cute Dead Chick disguise. (more…)
