Why am I a tailor again?

Frozen Shadow Weave. Yup, that’s why Lilac’s a tailor.

So now we’re in Wrath and I’m looking at the goodies:

– Spellthread
– Embroideries
– Flying Carpet

The rest of everything is BoE. So it looks good on the surface.. but not so much when you dig into it.

Heroic Ahn’kahet sucks balls

We only got 2/4 bosses down in Heroic Ahn’Kahet: The Old Kingdom.

Hints on Boss #1: kill the big spiders or else everyone becomes immune.
Hints for Boss #2: the blood sucking is shadow damage. So Priests should do their shadow protection. Warlocks, when he phases out pop your Shadow Ward and prevent 3k of his [...]

Because gnomes in santa suits are funny..

Saturday I joined the “PVP-go-’round”** and helped to down a couple of Horde city leaders. I’ve already gotten my Black War Bear.. but I still needed to kill 5 hordies in Silvermoon to complete an achievment. Also we had a couple of guildies who were still working on the Black War Bear so I joined and helped. The Horde fought back in Silvermoon and bada-bing-bada-boom I got my achievement.

I’ve had my Nostromo N52 for almost two years. It’s been a long time since I posted about it(original post).. so I figured it was time for an update (Besides, this makes a really good Christmas present for the Wow Player in your life).

What it is:
The Nostromo N52 is an external gaming speedpad. You use it in addition to your mouse and keyboard to manipulate and interact with your computer.

/facepalm

I’m bopping around Dalaran comparing gears and trying to work out my “Boss” gear vs my “Trash/Heroic” gear and I see in trade :

/Trade {known trade troll} LFM for attempt on Heroic Wintergrasp raid.

I think to myself: Self, you know that you should never listen to trade trolls.
Self replies: yabut.. it’s an easy raid. How bad can it be?

Cue ominous music

Things I can get behind

Sometimes random things are dumb.. and no one would want to do them… othertimes I wish I had a direct line to an ear at blizzard.

Things I can get behind:

A daily quest that messes up your hair. Everyday.. for money.. you do this daily quest and it “messes up your hair” (bonus points if it’s like ugly bed head or Tauren Licked). Those who -care- would have to go to the barber to get their “real hair” back. Those who don’t care would wander around with a different hair do everyday.. or EVEN BETTER~!!! nasty bedhead.

Orly.. Westfall!

So we’re running Nexus (Red Holiday Hats all around) and I died. I don’t remember how exactly.. probably.. you know.. poke things really hard in the eye so they ate my face. So anyway, I’m running back and the priest throws me a rez (horray for priest-y goodness). I accept (I was right [...]

FIRST!

Ratshag, one of my favorite bloggers, tagged me to recall my first commenter. This meme happens to be quasi-wow related so I’ll go ahead and do it on this blog (I do try to keep the non-wow chatter to a minimum).

The first comment left on the blog was done by Ms. Edith, a real life [...]

Molten Core vs ISB (the “feels” arguement)

This is the “feels” arguement. There will be no math involved in this comparison. Check out EJ. I’m sure they have math.

*curse* *stomp* *rant*
EJ says: OH my (note the snooty little voice here) if your crit percent is low(ie 10% or less) you really benefit more from Molten Core than from Improved Shadow Bolt.

Yabut.. grrrr.

Is it better to have something that procs rarely but benefits alot of spells.. or something that procs frequently but benefits only one spell?
