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 [...]

Squirtle Squirtle Squirtle

Squirtle – Cute but loud

My Baby Mage finished the Badlands, moved on to Searing Gorge and dinged 50. The only thing I can say.. is if the rest of the expansion is as fun as Badlands.. this is going to be SO . MUCH . FUN!

Frost mage leveling seems to be:
1. Send squirtle [...]

Unexpected Victory

I wasn’t expecting it. In fact I’d decided that just getting my Red Proto Drake was enough. But as luck would have it I got included in a guild run to kill the Lich King(it was the guild’s second kill as far as I know). So there you have it. I’m a Kingslayer. [...]

Enemy’s Gate is Down

occulusI think I need to start making crib sheets for raid/dungeons. We ran Heroic Occulus.. and none of use could clearly remember any of the boss fights. I think I’ll start a set of Crib Sheets here and on the new guild site so that I have a quick reminder.. and a spot to cut/copy paste instructions for puggers.

I’m thinking things like these that Morrighan has done.

Pugging with gritted teeth

faceplantThe good part about being in a very annoying PUG that faceplants repeatedly on Faction Champions is that I got a lot of time to work on/think about how to handle the fight and more specifically the tree druid.

The pug itself was uber annoying.. no.. wait..the pug was fine.. the people running it were annoying.. I bet they were all of 18 years old.. and spend a vast amount of time making snide comments in Vent about how bad everyone else in the run was. <Sarcasm> they were -TRULY- an inspiration.. I only hope I can someday be as ROFLLEET as them.. and woo their gears were pretty.. I just wanted to stand and gaze at them in mute admiration.</Sarcasm> No wait.. I don’t.. I wanted to kick them so hard they landed on another server. /sigh.. unfortunately I attributed my animosity to PMS and took the quiet but greedy route of staying in the pug even when the asshats were pissing me off.

But anyway.. back to the helpful lessons learned.

Turkinator Lilac

Go to Elwynn.
Make a macro:

/target Wild Turkey
/cast corruption

Put this on a keybound button.

Mount up, run along the edges of the water ways (avoid the murlocks.. as a guildie mentioned.. obviously murlocs eat turkeys because no turkeys spawned near the murloc village) and slightly off the road. Anyway.. Run.. spam the macro. When you target [...]
