Archive for the ‘Raids’ Category

My mates joined a guild to raid. When they did so, they clearly stated in their application that they couldn’t raid Friday nights, as this night was already taken to play with other mates (like me). However, they would offer up any spare places in our 10 man raids to their guildies that were at a loose end.

Turns out two of my mates are 2/3 of the best dps in the guild and knowing my mates, the rest of them would be in the top of their fields.

This is sort of beside the point though.

The problem they are facing has been accentuated over the last 2 weeks with me doing 25 man Naxx.

You see, their guild doesn’t have enough to field a 25 man group, and they refuse to pug the extra numbers.

They can field about 16 on any given night, so too many for a 10 man, yet too few for a 25.

They won’t pug the extra 9 for one reason. (more…)

So how about those instance maps guys?

I finally hit “M” while in an instance, and I have to say the wait was worth it… Well maybe not such a long wait, but it is still awesome to both get an instance map and see my position and my parties position real time.

Just Awesome!

The only change I want is to include this for all those bloody caves and buildings that are scattered across the world.

Nothing more frustrating than trying to find my way out of a stinking cave, that is displayed in miniature on my minimap, but when I hit “M” I get the world map.

Anyway, Begging Gnomes can’t be choosing Gnomes.

Gnomer and Out! (more…)

What a weekend!

I was at a LAN, but primarily to catch up with my old mates in person for a change.

No Vent lag when you are all in the same room.

Anyway, I decided to stand my mates up for our usual (traditional) Friday night run. Instead I signed up for Guild Naxx raids for both Friday and Saturday nights. It’s so rare that I get to play both nights and combined with the chance to run Naxx 25, the opportunity was too good to miss.

Sorry guys, back with you next week!

So what did I do from Friday afternoon through to Sunday afternoon?

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…)

Why can’t we all just get along?

Why can’t we all just get along?

A couple of mates were discussing whether Blizz would every allow Horde and Alliance to group together.

Me being all powerful and knowledgeable stated for a fact it would never happen.

My mate pointed out that according to Warcraft RTS lore, Horde and Alliance have banded together.

So what do you think, will Horde and Alliance stand side by side at some pint in the future?

Gnomer and Out!

Kara is the New Deadmines

ZA is the new Wailing Caverns

Easy Peasy.

Seriously, so little challenge that I felt like we were boosting some low level alts through Deadmines and Wailing Caverns. (more…)

ZG is for more than seven

ZG is for more than seven

So we hit ZG on Friday, yep I strapped my boots back on and gave the game 5 hours of my life.

1st observation:
Empty your bags. We had to hearth to make space. All the rep and quest tokens build up before you know it.

2nd observation:
This place is made for a large crew. (more…)
