Token of love

Honestly, I wanted to subjugate an Incubus… that would peg my happiness meter.. some Adonis like demon thingy.. with a six-pack of steel.. trotting along next to me.. mine to command. But no.. Blizzard designed the game for 14-year-old boys.. so I get a buxomous demoness in leather with a whip. I still get to subjugate her though.

I’m amazed a the disparity between the Gnome and Blood Elf Succubus quests. The Gnome quest was annoying just in the travel time.. but the Blood Elf/Undead quest was almost-outside-the bounds of reason hard.

Death.. in a most peculiar way

GM Ticket:
So I was walking down the road in Darkshore.. and my voidwalker stopped following me.. I even stopped and then turned around to look at him. Then I disconnected.

When I reconnected I was falling in an area called the “Twisting Nether”. I fell to my death.. and then it offered me th option [...]

The evilness of Warlocks

In a conversation with Guildies on Vent last night I said:

“I gain power by subjugating demons, sucking away the lives of other creatures and then condensing their souls into tiny little shards which I store in my pouch. Nah, we’re not evil, what makes you say that?”

Ette is now questing in Bloodmyst Isle. It’s [...]

Revision of Revolution

Yesteday I quoted off some resolutions. On re-think I’m going to revise those.

Looked into bags.. turns out you don’t get anything decent with tailoring until you can get to level 35. UGH! That seems to be a lot of work to put into a toon I’m not committed to playing (priest). I briefly toyed with the idea of making Ette (warlock) do tailoring.. but I’ve hit upon a new plan:

Exploit Guildmates (I like this new plan)

Honored with Cenarion Expedition

Easiest rep grind EVER! As the poster says, Neutral to Honored in 5 minutes.

Ended up costing a total of about 12g. Worth it.

Protection Pally Initial Threat

[This information is Deprecated. With the 3.0.2 patch the information
below is no longer true. Please check more recent entries for more
correct information.]

Basically 1 dmg = 1 Threat, 1 spell dmg = 1 Threat, 4 healing points = 1 Threat (for Paladins)
Righteous Fury makes Holy Damage = 1.6 Threat and Improved Righteous Fury makes Holy Damage = 1.9 Threat

In order to pull aggro you have to exceed someone else’s threat by 10% (110% of top threat) OR they have to lose aggro (stunned, knock back, etc).

Mail Bomb Interruptus

We made an abortive attempt to do Underbog last night. Abortive because after the first few pulls we determined that with Tatia at 60 the instance was just going to be too tough. We were a guildie group of Tatia (60 Pally), Zynnia (62 Priest), Daegothh(63 Mage), Fynriss (62 Hunter), Stiletta (62 Rogue).

Changed up to do Blood Furnace instead. It didn’t suck horribly.. but it wasn’t a bed of roses. As the lowest level toon in the group Tatia had a hard time holding aggro.. this frustrated me since I couldn’t think of anything else I could be doing to hold aggro. “Hit harder” really isn’t a valid answer for the Protection Paladin (though I’m looking into adding +dmg or +spell dmg to gear).

Pally AoE HoT

[This information is Deprecated. With the 3.0.2 patch the information
below is no longer true. Please check more recent entries for more
correct information.]

Another frequent whine from the forums is plea for Heal over Time (HoT) and AoE heals for Paladins.

I’m not holy, I’ve never been holy.. but I thought that’s what Judgement of Light was?

Paladin: Judgement of Light at level 70 costs ~280 mana (can’t find the mana cost of “Judgement”) seems to have a 50% proc rate to heal for 95. So as long as the Paladin is hitting the mob.. everyone who is melee hitting the mob will be healed for an average of 50 hp each swing.

Solo healed Scholo

Last night Tatia Solo healed Scholo.. while wearing her Protection gear.

I thought Zynnia (61 Priest) was coming, instead that player brought Pheefee (70 Warrior) who needed the mana potion recipe from the ghost vendor. The group was Raoun (70 Hunter), Sibiy (70 Hunter), Chulong (70 Rogue), Pheefee (70 Warrior) and Tatia (60 Pally). As “lowbie-kins” I was there to glide through the quests and accumulate Argent Dawn rep.

Things Paladins weren’t meant to do…

.. so stop asking for it already.

There’s a thread on the forums wailing for “duel weld” about every other day. Just give it up already.

Things we’ll never do:

Dual Wield
Stealth, sneak, hide
Poison
Use ranged weapons
Hand-to-hand fighting, fist weapons. (aside from when disarmed, fisticuffs is uncouth)
Threat reduction. (this one I’m not certain about.. our heals are [...]
