Coming up in the world

Tatia ended the weekend at level 45. One of the trainings gave her Hammer of Wrath. OMG the immense happiness given by being able to fling a holy-glowey hammer through the air. Rawr!

Tatia (Pally), Zaramina(Mage), Sibiy(Hunter) and Klee(Hunter) tackled and took down Uldaman. I think I died once. Zaramina died many [...]

The Easy Button

Last night I started a new horde-side warlock alt. I’ve heard that Warlocks are easy but that’s not why I choose that class. I wanted a self-sufficient non-pally alt who could pick flowers for my horde-side Pally main (Illyah) who is an Alchemist. With DoTs + pet + self-healing the Warlock seemed like [...]

[Six Demon Bag]

A little bit random.. but it seems to have at least a 50% chance of a ranged spell.. and you can use it at level 46. [...]

Pally Solo Strategy

Last night I was killing Skullsplitter Trolls for their tusks in STV. It wasn’t terribly difficult.. I was able to take on 3-4 at a time easily. It seems like there were a lot of other players on that quest at the same time. I was competing with a Draenei Shaman, and Bloodspary, [...]

The Curse of Stranglethorn Vale (or would that be “Cursing at…”)

I’ve read that a lot of people hate questing in Stranglethorn Vale. On PVP servers it’s an invitation to “gankage”.

Since I’m not on a PVP server The only problems I see are:

“Remember the Sunwell”

What a Paladin is

When I choose “paladin” I wasn’t actually thinking “hmm I’d like to be a melee healer with no ability to use ranged attacks”. I was thinking of an ideal. Ideally I believe Blizzard is tweaking/buffing/nerfing Paladins to get them to fit an ideal.

My ideal:
A Paladin aspires to be a knight. That is she [...]
