Baby hunter go “RAWR!!”

noccAs mentioned, my “baby” hunter finally is of the level to hit Outlands. She has essentially skipped over most of the levels from 50-58 (speedy holiday leveling ftw) so she kind of whizzed right by 55 where she could have spec’d deep BM for the exotic pet.

Hot, Hot, Hot

fireOver the weekend I completed Midsummer Festival on my main (she’s one holiday away from a Violet Proto-drake)(assuming they don’t throw a new “Pilgrim” holiday into the requirements). I also completed the honor/desecrate circuit on my baby druid and hunter.

Outside of the cities, my 80 ‘lock was attacked twice by hordies. I -get- that it’s a pvp-esque event and I expect to have a couple of run ins with the other faction. I get it.. I’m peeing on their fires and they’ve got their panties in a twist. Whatever.

The first tiff was at Crossroads. I was insta-gibbed by a rogue. I think I was dead before I even got a chance to push a button. They didn’t pursue me when I moved on to the next fire.

The second tiff was while I was riding back from Raventusk Village in the Hinterlands. An 80 Blood Elf Death Knight attacked me and knocked me off my pony.

First off, I suck at PVP and I hate doing it. Second off Death Knights are OP. Third off.. I ROFLSTOMPED the BE Death Knight. Seriously.. I suck at PVP but he sucked more. I death coiled him and then kept him feared until I dotted/Shadow Bolted him down. He never strangulated me.. and I never dipped below 75% health. Seriously.. if you’re going to start something.. finish it.. cause all this little tiff did was make me want to log over to Horde side and tell him how much he sucked at PVP.

Oddly my baby hunter was also attacked in Hinterlands. An 80 Troll Mage decided to attack her on her way back from Raventusk Village. The mage blasted my baby hunter off her pony. I set my ravager to eat the mages face. I had 7 health points left..-7- and the mage turned to “deal with” my pet. I ran away and hid behind a tree. Srsly. I don’t get it. Well ok, maybe I do.. I’m on a PVE server.. and I know that -I- suck at pvp.. but I dunno.. I expect more of the horde. Having a level 80 mage get “distracted” by a level 57 ravager to the point where the mage actually turns away from the lowbie hunter he’s ganking and starts killing the pet.. just pitiful.

Almost Tangential

I was reading this article** and noted that they said that “More than 200 million people—about one-fifth of all Internet users—have Facebook accounts.” which is interesting and all.. but then I did the maths.

If: 200 million facebook users = 1/5 of all the Intarwebz users… then
11 million World of Warcraft players ~= 1/100 of all [...]

Addon: Power Auras Revisit

The addon Power Auras helps you to notice when things happen. It will show a symbol (or text) on your screen/make a sound when you/your party/your opponent/your focus does/does not have a buff/debuff.

There’s about 50 symbols included or you can add your own.. they can be colored, stretched, flipped, scaled and positioned wherever you want them on the screen. There’s entrance and exit animations..and you can add sounds to events. In addition to “random” images you can also show text or icons on the screen.. and you can also incorporate timers.

Auras can be configured for individual toons.. or you can setup auras for all your toons.

Auras can also be chained together so they fire in very specific complex circumstances.

“You’re doing it wrong”

doing-it-wrong-ball_2Don’t get me wrong.. I love feedback. I savor it and look back on it and get a warm fuzzy feeling (somebody “loves” me and values my content) but I don’t always agree with the feedback. I still kind of want to snuggle them and whisper sweet nothings in their ears.

“GC Promised Me A Pony” and other QQ

Pallies: “Don’t nerf me bro.”
GC: “Here, have a pony”
Pallies: “GC Promised me a pony”
See pony (and other “cool stuff coming in 3.2″.) here: http://bit.ly/17wwIP

If I were a betting woman I’d say 3.2 will appear maybe a week before Blizzcon.
