The other twenty points

Let’s say (for the sake of arguement) that I’m utterly dedicated to specing full Affliction for the long run. So the bulk of my points ~51-55 will be in the Affliction tree.

That leaves me with right around 20 points to spend elsewhere. What is there in the other trees that I would want? and how badly do I want them?

I rolled a gnome because…

I wanted an alliance-side warlock… and humans jump funny.

What? Seriously have you looked at them jump? It’s like they levitate and then bend their knees. At least with a gnome I don’t have to worry about that [...]

Metahud update

Quick note, last night I made an update to the copy of MetaHud I’m tweaking.

The options menu is still buggered. I’m not willing to upload this to something like Curse until I get that fixed.. but it’s moving along.

If you use it and you spot bugs, please report them to me. Thanks.

Changelog:
2008-12-04 [...]

Waffling

Last night I ran the Oculus for the first time. Very interesting. On the final boss we had best luck with two reds (who swapped off tanking the boss throughout the fight), two greens (so they could keep up on “healing” without killing themselves) and one amber.

After the instance run I was kind of fluxumed as to what to do. I had no firm goals.. I just had a lot of vague ones.. so I logged over to my bank toon and sent all my Frostweave back to Lilac so she could level tailoring. About half way through leveling tailoring it occurred to me that I really didn’t know why I was doing it beyond “must cap tailoring because it’s what you should do.” I’m vaguely interested in the flying carpet.. but not really.. I’m vaguely interested in the leg enchants.. but not really. I’m just kinda meh.

I remember hitting this point at 70. I’ve finished the big obvious goal.. and now there are 1,001 little goals and I can’t choose which one to work on first.

I guess the big question is: What do I want to do?

Unordered answers:
– Be prepared to goto NAXX-10 with guild
– fix/further develop MetaHUD.
– Make money on AH
– Level another toon
– Go back and finish stuff for achievements/mounts

Ding 80


I actually didn’t expect this to happen last night. We went to the Fed Ex place and picked up our new phones (BlackBerry Storm)(Sweet sweet techno-gasm). Then we went to the Verizon store to have all of our old phone info transferred to our new phones(… along with EVERYBODY ELSE IN THE WHOLE DAMN BAY AREA). Then we went out for dinner (Chicken Cataloni). -Then- we went home and played for a little while.

Tapping in protest

Leveling is going well.. I should hit 80 sometime this week (maybe as soon as tonight.. but I wouldn’t hold my breath).

(Reposting pic because it still makes me laugh)

I got a new rank of Life Tap… and I’m finding that occasionally.. when I tap.. right afterwards I gulp in surprise about how much life [...]
