Rogues should all DIAF

Tol Barad, those bastards, have my trinket. Not only that, they won’t give it to me until I do a LOT of their dirty work. I’m covered in spider gunk, up to my ears in fish and have splinters from all the lumber. I’ve cleared out restless infantry, unhappy villagers and crazed guards. [...]

Living outside the box

Today seems to be the day to noodle about warlock macros..

Check out Fulguralis and Cynwise. I wanted to follow the crowd.. but realize my macros are a home.. and I am not.. So instead..

Pandemic + Haste

Pandemic causes your Bane and Curse spells to behave as if you have 50% haste (50% haste reduces GCD for casters down to 1 second).

What I did on my vacation

Somethings are just too good not to share

I hope everyone had a Merry Christmas (or holiday of your choosing) and a Happy New Year. I was a horrible sloth and spent way too much time WoWing over the holiday.
