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. [...]

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.

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 [...]

.. where I suck at multi-tasking

Last night I spent upwards of 4 hours trying to record a video with voice over. It’s very simple.. I have an addon.. it’s cool. It “shows” better in a video than a screenshot. Unfortunately I fail at video.. at least last night.

Observations:
– I suck at multi-tasking.
– New computer is SWEET! [...]

Failure to Raid

After the guild meeting we started setting up a 10 man group to do VoA and OS. I really really wanted to see what my new system will do in raids.. but -really- I want to see this in a 25-man(should happen on Monday). I decided to step out of last night’s 10-man since others needed the gear more than I did. But.. I still really wanted to raid.

We didn’t run a Naxx-10 this week.. and I’m going out of town for the weekend.. so it’s doubtful that I’ll be included in a guild Naxx-10 so I signed myself up in /lfg for Naxx-10. In the meantime I finished off a few more quests in Teledrassil. I had just finished the starting area and was moving on to Ashenvale (I’ve already finished Darkshore**) when I got a whisper asking if I’d be interested in dpsing Spider and Construct wings of Naxx-10. Why sure!

Hater of Gluth

Affliction Pet

I’m totally and utterly jealous of Hunters. I mean I totally -get- that I’m not spec’d demonology.. so I shouldn’t expect much dps out of my pet… but SERIOUSLY!! seeing a Recount.. where the hunter’s pet is out DPSing half the DPSers.. and my felpuppy is bumping along at 330 (it’s better since 3.0.8 where he was lucky to break 150) I’m totally and utterly jealous.
