Warlock trainer in Rachet

I’ve often complained about the unfairness to warlocks with there not being a trainer in Kalmdor. It turns out I need to eat my words. On a rise overlooking Rachet I chanced upon this trio of NPCs. Low and behold, a Warlock trainer and a Demon trainer.

They’re located at 62,35 in Rachet and [...]

Blackheart the Inciter – Interesting Tidbit

If you get far enough away from him, you drop out of combat. Nice to know when he takes control of you and burns all [...]

Plan of attack

So.. How do I squeeze the most DPS out of my holy pally?
Based on my toolset (ie, I’m not protection and not deep into Retribution) I should have a second set of gear that stacks on spell damage and spell crit.

I chose my build (51/0/10) very specifically be the best healer I can be and in solo to avoid the dilution of stats that seems to occur deep in the Retribution tree. As far as I can tell, I’ve grabbed the talents/abilities that favor spell damage and avoided those that favor melee stats. I also favored things the don’t add to my threat where possible (ie, choosing Blessed Life instead of going deeper into Retribution to get Eye for an Eye).

Spell damage looks to be the most overall useful.. but a crit is a crit. Intelligence and Stamina also figure high on my “want-to-have” list.

Getting all Offensive

I want more than 158 DPS. So I’m noodling ways to increase my DPS (besides the obvious “go play your warlock” way).

Tatia, Queen of the Ogres

Orges love me. Ogres say “she so tiny how she rule?”. Enlightened Ogres allow me to play “zimon says” and get zapped for the fun of it. Ogres fun!

Wk got together and did a fast quick run through the Ogri’la pre-quests. Now that I think of it.. considering how many of his son we’ve killed.. it’s no wonder Gruul want’s to kill us when we go into his lair.

!? 158 DPS?? SRSLY?

Slow night.. logged on late. Guildies were running LBRS for enchanting mats. I joined them. The healing needs were very small so I slapped on my “spell” gear to add dps. The group was Gongniu (warrior), Tatia (Holy Pally), Raouen (Hunter), Lashala (58 Shadow Priest).

Happily I out dps’d the level 58 shadow priest.
Unhappily.. I watched SWStats.. and I topped out at 158 DPS. Seriously!

Addon: Proximo Arena Mod

I’m tempted by the Arena.. but I’m fairly certain I’ll get my ass handed to me unceremoniously.

Regardless.. I stumbled across this addon that looks like it’d be fairly interesting. Noting it here just in case I actually get the urge to go into an Arena.

Brain Fried

Long non-WoW weekend. Did things that involve sweating, cursing (under my breath) and complaining about the heat. Honestly, when playing it’s easy to forget that you’re riding around a desert in full plate armor on your way to the Caverns of Time. Sitting in the shade in the California central valley is -way- [...]
