Questioning the “Experts”

Elitist Jerk’s Simulationcraft runs for Affliction use the Felhound.

I wonder if that was intentional.

/whistling

This totally means I’m going to need to spend quality time with the Simulator.

I’m making slow progress through Deepholm. It’s not a -bad- zone.. I’m just not captured by the story.. and it’s dark and cave-like without much mob variety.. Honestly [...]

.. on the way out of Vashj’ir

A funny thing happened on the way out of Vashj’ir.

As I mentioned I was at 145/160 quests.. and perplexed about where the find the remaining 15 quests. After a short little research jaunt I shrugged and just moved onto to Maelstrom/Deepholm figuring I’d circle back around and complete the last quests later.

A question of spec

I’ve started questing in Maelstrom/Deepholm and hit level 83. So far questing has been fairly easy and I’ve just kept with my “normal” Affliction raiding spec. This kind of makes me feel guilty since I -know- that spec isn’t optimal for levelling.

So I keep flipping over to my alt spec (which is still 0/0/0) [...]

Maelstrom ho!

I “finished” Vashj’ir. Well.. ok, I’m 145/160 with no leads on the other 15 quests. Teh Intarwebz (and twitter) says the count is borked.. so hopefully Blizz will get that fixed soon so I can get the achievement.

The quest line was very enjoyable. I’m glad that I’m a quest reader.

That said, the [...]

..down where it’s wetter, that’s where it’s better.. um.. yeah

11:59: Questing on Llyl (baby warlock) with Fiancé on his baby tauran pally.
12:01: Fiancee logs out so he can activate his download. I figure I’ll be smart and wait for the in-game message telling me Cata was ready for me.
12:12: In-game message finally fires.. like 15 times. 12 whole minutes late. BUT the queues [...]

Our story so far…

So this one night.. I heard there was going to be a Cataclysm! and I prepared myself and girded my loins. I’d been fighting elemental invasions in Stormwind, it seemed the thing to do. I was totally prepared for all Hellfire to break loose..

Instead.. I think I passed out.. for some unknown [...]
