Dealing with the lulls

Roller CoasterRaiding is a rollercoster. Frankly it’s one I’m starting to dislike. When we’re at the top it’s exciting.. it’s fun.. it’s all I can think about. When we’re at the bottom.. or climbing our way back up it’s frustrating, it’s annoying and I hate EVERYONE.

I want to raid. Raiding is where my next gear upgrades come from. So if I want to continue to play my ‘lock then I need to raid. Raiding requires that I have 9 or 24 other people go with me.

Warlockery: By the Numbers

I just want to start off by saying: I’m a bad bad blogger. I’m thrilled to death when I get email from a reader.. but unfortunately it’s taken me -way- to long to respond to this one.

A while back I got an email from Megan.

Hi there, I was reading your blog today and looking at the list of lock gear available from 10′s 25′s etc and I couldn’t figure out how you got your point values on each item as well as for the slot, is there another post I’m missing that explains the point system used?

I wanted to answer Megan immediately.. but the quick answer wasn’t going to be the full answer and really that question needed a full answer. Add to that, the numbers I used originally to generate those lists are no longer completely correct since 3.1 fiddled our values around. I’m currently working on updating those lists.

Sokay. Here goes. The numbers in my gear lists are based on the pseudopoints I calculated for the gear based on the output from Simulationcraft and implemented in the addon PAWN and lootranks/wowhead.

WANT!!

Deep abiding visceral WANT!!! (Spotted on MMO-Champion)

Why do I always want the dumbest things ever? This, paired with my “Exploding Rocket Chicken” I think would be instant win.
Wonder how many arms/legs I’ll have to pay for it. *sigh*

To be honest I guess this would be better on my horde-side toons.. they’re in the guild [...]

Addon: Pawn

pawn_logo_1png-118x78Pawn is an in-game addon that helps you to evaluate gear to determine which piece is better. The addon allows you to assign points to different stats and then tells you how many points a certain piece of gear is worth according to your point scale. In theory, if you have two pieces of gear, the one with the most “points” is superior. In reality, Pawn is only as good as your scales.
