Affliction Scribbles: Refuting the Haunt block

TL; DR Issue: My current rotation is clipping Unstable affliction and Immolate (really bad since clipped immolates sometimes refuse to refresh) OR it’s causing downtime in Haunt and dropped Corruptions.

TL;DR Solution: Stop casting Haunt/UA/Immo as a block and go back to watching 4 things (Haunt, UA/Immo, SL, CoA) instead of three. Refresh Haunt before it expired to prevent corruption from falling off.

Lilac the Scrivener?

‘Tis the sad affair of things when a perfectly good seamstress may lean back from her stitchery (having achieved a goodly reputation thereof (436/450)) and look upon them and find them to be displeasing. Further sadness is fomented upon the revelation that the distinct and superb benefits of ones stitchery are neither distinct.. nor superb and instead common and low and available to all. As such it is only right that one should look jealously upon one’s peers in the trade of Scribes and find that their benefits are indeed distinct and superb (to the tune of +37 spellpower).

Then one should think to oneself.. “do the distinct and superb benefits outweigh the cost of herbs and the hassle of leveling? And as such is it more worthwhile to pursue the craft of scribes than to continue to the logical end in tailoring?”

Hobbies Collide

I’ve mentioned it before but I play in the SCA (Society for Creative Anachronism)(medieval recreation group). This weekend I read an article on WowInsider “A WoW economics course proposal“. As I read it I thought to myself “huh, David Friedman, I know that name.”

I’m right. David plays in the SCA as [...]

Known Bugs: Warlock

There’s a surprising amount of “known bugs” in the warlock world. Surprising in that I didn’t know about that. I wanted to compile the list in one place so I could keep track of them.

Flapping Flail

Everyday, on my way to Dun Niffle-whatever (where you do the Sons of Hodir daily quests) the taxi gryphon flies over Hyldnir, the lady Val’kyr town. You know the one.. when you enter the city you change into a lady Val’kyr disguise.. so you’re not recognized**. Anyway.. the taxi flies over the city.. and [...]

I’m no goblin…


.. but this forum post just makes me shake my head.

The idiots that undercut by 1s..
What the hell is with that!? I’ve started to get annoyed at the people that think it’s acceptable to undercut an AH price by ONE silver…

Now, I’m not talking about the little low level items! Im talking about gems, epic items, etc.

If you’re going to undercut someone at least make it by lets say at least a few gold or something!

Seriously? Not only is it acceptable, I can’t really fathom why you -wouldn’t- undercut by 1s.
