Questing with James once more

For a couple of years (and toons) “my mate James” and I quested merrily along together.

Just the two of us.

As much as he was there to hold my hand and tell me where to go, he was never in my ear, never needed bio’s, never wiped the party.

There was no loot drama with James.   He would tell me what was good, and I would trust him… he never rolled against me.  What I found was mine.

We had a great friendship, better in many ways that the friends I have with my real life friend.  He was if nothing else, always by my side when I needed him, even on the train when I was planning out what to do next session.

Unfortunately even the best of friends part ways, if only for a short period.  Thus it was with James and I.  You see, I had no further need of his assistance, so I casually cast him aside (*actually my wife set him on fire… sounds bad doesn’t it). (more…)

I wrote just the other day about my questing impairment, but I hadn’t realized just how blind I am.

Are you questing impaired?


Are you questing impaired?

This can take many forms:

  • Inability to read the quest text to identify objectives.
  • Inability to go in the right direction to find either the quest objective or the quest giver.
  • Inability to see the quest giver or objective even though it is right in front of you.
  • Inability to follow spoken directions by helpful players over vent.
  • Inability to research, or worst case find quest guides.
  • Inability to follow quest guides once found.
  • Inability to find a location even with a loc mod or even a quest helper that clearly marks the location on the map.
  • Inability to differentiate between one variety of a mob and another (eg: young & grisly)
  • Unfortunate ability to delete/ store in the bank/ send to alt/ vendor/auction required quest items.

If you relate to any of these, you may be quest impaired and should seek some professional advice. (more…)

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…)
