Food buff

We’re in our first raid and everytime we wipe I eat my food like a good little raider. I’m currently eating Severed Sagefish Head and everytime I sit to eat I gleefuly sing in my head:

FISH HEADS
FISH HEADS
ROLY POLY
FISH HEADS
FISH HEADS
eat them up, yum!
In the morning laughing happy fish heads
In the evening floating in the soup [...]

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..

I made a How-to for Argaloth. He’s not terribly hard.. just don’t stand in stuff.

Assuming your group has the [...]

Pretty Pretty Trinkets

I think of all the armor slots I hate trinkets the most. It’s because it’s hard to compare “occasionally hits target with shadowy damage” vs “summons a minion to fight at your side” vs “very very occasionally gives you god-like int.. but then is on cooldown for the rest of the fight”.

So when a guildie [...]

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.

On my vacation I:
– completed the Loremaster of Cataclysm
– completed my first Cataclysm Heroic [...]

“Teeny-tiny teeth…”

I’ve been an adventurer for a while.. 85 seasons.. and in all that time I’ve been asked to do some pretty despicable things.. I tortured a man.. I (accidentally) killed puppies.. heck, I’m not even ashamed to say it.. I’ve dug through poop (a few times) at the request of a quest giver.. but this.. this [...]

Having many love…

I accidentally ran my first heroic last night. Well started to anyway.

I logged in, started my dailies and popped into the Daily Dungeon queue (Hit “I”, Choose “join”, close screen). Eventually it popped and I ended up in Halls of Origination. Everything went swimmingly for a while until we got to the first [...]

Day in the life at 85

Sign up for Daily Random Regular (I’m 3 points short of heroics right now)
Teleport to Uldum and complete the one lonely daily quest. It almost feels not worth it.. but a daily is a daily.. and it does build needed reputation.
Hearth back to Stormwind.
Teleport to Deepholm and then teleport to the Throne of Therazane. [...]

Ding 85

Due to .. unusual events.. I ended up playing through to 85 last night. I dinged on the last quest in Uldum. Now, back to the “endgame”.

Reputations to grind, normals to do, gear to buy. Fun [...]

Flaming Gnomes, Flaming Gnomes EVERYWHERE

I finished Deepholm and (as instructed by the breadcrumbs) moved on to Uldum. I’m disappointed to have to report that the Random Dungeon queue can pop for you WHILE you’re watching a long cut scene.. so I’m not 100% certain what happened in the cut scene as you enter Uldum. I was afraid that [...]
