Threat

Threat is a re-occurring concern lately. It’s hard to be the “tank” when you aren’t generating enough threat to get the baddies to hit you. Not -entirely- my fault when grouped with others 8+ levels above me… but still a concern.

Hunter Envy

Reading Big Red Kitty makes me want to play my hunter. *sigh* too bad I’m committed to getting Tatia (my pally) to 70 before giving true love to any of my alts. No hunter for me… yet. But the idea of “kiting” and “chain trapping” just gives [...]

OP in ZF

We finally finished Zul’Farrak last night (WoWwiki: http://www.wowwiki.com/Zul%27Farrak) . I did it with a Guildie group so there was no PUG wierdness. The first time we went through we were levels 44-48 and didn’t have the [item]Mallet of Zul’Farrak[/item] so couldn’t summon Gahz’rilla. Last night we were level 49-59, a little over powered.

That Damn Bell

It started out so simply..

I’m cleaning up my quest log and found that I had a couple of quests to finish up in Feralas. So I flew off to Feathermoon. While killing Ironfurs and Graddoc’s (for their livers) my Brother logged onto Venti. He has a hunter who is very close to me in level and offered to come quest with me.

While he was flying on the bird I happened to stumble on another quest. So there’s this child, Shay.. and she’s wandered off from her guardian (very large slow fellow) and he asked us to bring her back. Brother arrives and we quickly finished off the liver quests and ran off north to gather the flames and assemble a stave. It was quick and easy. Then we went and gathered the poor lost child.

Healing Gear

I figure someday Tatia the Tank will need to heal. So starting to identify gear that makes this possible (without respeccing to Holy).

Pally Ranged Attacks

When you don’t have it, you miss it. I constantly get the feeling I’m making funny faces at the mobs to get them to aggro on me “Nyah, nyah, come and get me”. A while back I got a “Goblin Fishing Pole”. A couple of sticks of dynamite.. a bit unrefined.. but ranged [...]
