NOTF: Power Auras Fan Update

Quick note. Power Auras has had a fan update. If you use the addon Power Auras.. and have issues where you need an aura to be active only in ONE of your specs, this update is for you. I’m finding it hugely useful on my pally (holy/prot) and on my ‘lock (affliction/hybrid:felguard emberstorm) [...]

Guild First: Malygos 10

Finally, we managed to get Malygos down. On the night he fell we did 6 attempts. Nights before that normally went to 10-12 attempts. When he finally fell out of the sky Vent went wild with cheering. Happy day.

Do you know how hard it is to get a “boss down screenshot” when [...]

Monologueing is Annoying

We missed the timed CoT by that much (finger pinched together). Every fight before the gauntlet was on that exact opposite end of town. So we lost too much time in running back and forth. Dejected, we went on to defeat Mal’Ganis.

Srsly, the end of that fight pisses me off. If he’s going to monolog about how he’ll kick our ass later he really needs to .. you know.. stun us all.. because if one more shadowbolt had hit him he’d've died. Having his little monolog while I’m still at full health/mana.. and have proc’d nightfall and have my finger poised over Shadow Bolt while he blah blah blahs for a while is just annoying.

Go here. Register on the site. Get a robot.

WowInsider (now Wow.com) reported that you don’t need to grind the tokens for the pet. But reading over that forum entry I’m not so sure.

So I try to log into the site each day. Click to view the videos. Then click through [...]

Guild First: XT002

Last night for the first time ever West Kingdom downed XT002 in Ulduar-10.

If you look very carefully at the picture you’ll notice a distinct lack of gnomish presence. For this fight I was asked to bring my Pally as a healer. I feel terribly undergeared.. and unpracticed at healing as a pally.. but [...]

What’s buck-toothed, googly-eyed and has a high defense rating?

That’s right Murkimus! (he’s the one in front) Ok.. so I know I said I was going to do it.. but .. things happened. So no armored murlock for me. Essentially I’m ok with that (meaning it’s my own damn fault.. so complaining about it just makes me a whiner).

Anyway.. [...]

Stoopid blue hat

The loot Gods officially hate me.

Here I am. A warlock of (almost) EPIC proportions** and I’m -still- wearing a blue hat. Stoopid silly Forgotten Shadow Hood out of Culling of Strat. Not only that.. I actually have TWO of them. One gemmed for +hit and the other gemmed for +spellpower. [...]

First piece of T8

aggro1 Last week, just before we’d gone into Uld-10 I’d changed my spec. You know.. changing it up to try out different options. This time I dropped the affliction threat reduction and picked up.. idaknow, something else. In Uld-10 I found that on adds I was drawing -alot- more aggro than normal. Since on trash I am spamming Seed of Corruption I found that either I was starting too soon.. or I was just plain critting too much and pulling aggro.

Guild First: Uld-10 Razorscale

Last night we formed up and tromped off to Ulduar-10. Two weeks ago the guild went into Uld-10 and downed Flame Leviathan (I wasn’t there) So although last night was a Nibuca first on Flame Leviathan, it wasn’t a guild first.

Anyway, we one-shotted Flame Leviathan. Afterwards we discussed “leaving a tower up” to [...]

BEACON!!! NOM NOM NOM

Last night after we finished off OS-25 (which I did on my warlock)(no loot. Boo) we ran a quick OS-10 and the Construct wing of Naxx-10. These last two I did on my Pally as a healer.

I found OS-10 as a healer to be much easier than OS-10 as a DPSer. Not sure if I just had a bunch of other stellar healers propping me up.. but it -seemed- very easy.
