Black Sheep

Zardoz of Armory Datamine commented on my last post. He observed that according to his data, Warlocks are now the least played class. Less played than even Shamen, the traditional low-man.

Wow.. Ok.. well let me state up front.. I love my lock. I occasionally miss my Pally.. but there is no other toon that I’ve ever gotten the sustained urge to play to the level cap. There’s some hint that warlocks got a nerf in WotLK. I think that’s somewhat justified but not across the board.

Affliction Pet

I’m totally and utterly jealous of Hunters. I mean I totally -get- that I’m not spec’d demonology.. so I shouldn’t expect much dps out of my pet… but SERIOUSLY!! seeing a Recount.. where the hunter’s pet is out DPSing half the DPSers.. and my felpuppy is bumping along at 330 (it’s better since 3.0.8 where he was lucky to break 150) I’m totally and utterly jealous.

Podcasts, Proofs and Theorycrafting

While driving back from my vacation (12 hour to get there, 21 hours to get back *grumble*) (How were we supposed to know that the Grapevine mountain pass was closed due to snow.. and really, Garmin(GPS device of infinite goodness) is very resistant when you try to get it to give you a different route home… {sarcasm} Three hour traffic jams are fun.. especially in the middle of the Mojave desert {/sarcasm}) I had the opportunity to think about.. well anything that would keep me from nodding off.
