Getting back in the swing

Whoa I’ve been so out of the loop lately when it comes to WoW. With All the moving and lack of net. sigh. Normally I’m on top of the latest news and gear going around. Most of the time I know what I want from each instance, but I really don’t even know what gear drops in TO(G)C.

What dose this mean for me? More math then I thought, but since I won’t be able to get WoW for a few more days. I suppose I have plenty of time to figure that all out before I relapse in to a 4-year-old addiction.

What did I do with my time before I had internet, phone, or TV, oh dear faithful Interwebz? Warcraft and simulators… but I only have a few. Total snewz zzz. For some odd reason I can’t get past one scenario in warcraft 2. Damn Alliance B*st*rds…wait…/clear throat

With the resent change to the Jewelcrafters Gem’s I find my self with having to do some more math…  I had my self sitting before I left wow at 27 expertise with the Unleashed Rage talent… Now I’m sitting at 28 with out it… rawr? hardly. Besides the fact I lost most of my socket bonuses with the switch of Prismatic to color.

3.2 and We’z Back?

4 08 2009

Sorry for the silence around here, but we have been hella busy again.. that has been really keeping me from playing wow in general. For the large part, Ak and I wanted to prove to our selves that we were not addicted. Witch I’ll be honest, I never thought was the case. I just don’t have any thing better to do then to speed level up 21 alts…

Will we return to raiding? Probably not with our current guild.  With this new change to our lives. We pretty much have like 7 to 10pm to play.. well at least Ak dose. Being the loving wife I am, I go to bed with him. My current guild raids from 7:30 to about 12 or so. That just doesn’t work. Will I miss it? Hell yes! Specially with the Colosseum coming out. I think I’m just going to sit back and mess around with my Lock and Rogue for a while. Regardless of a lot of drama that has happened since my departure. I really don’t think I’m going to be leaving the guild, even though a lot of the people that did leave I became vary attached too. It’s kinda funny how All of the reasons I stay with this guild just ends up leaving eventually anyway. I will just step back for a while. If they decide to kick me, that’s fine with me. I know there is vary little shaman’s left in my guild.. but there was one person who could take my spot. He’s young and has more free time around those hours then I do.

Shaman’s Double Edged Sword

9 06 2009

rmun7lWhat?! Shaman’s are going to get swords?! oh hell no.. besides most swords are not meant for shaman’s use. I wanna see titan’s grip before we can use swords.

There is something related to weapons that is in fact a “double edged sword” used in a figure of speech kinda terms. It’s called weapon speed.

To clarify this in a bit more technical terms.

Deceived…FTW!

9 06 2009

So, not many things shake me to the very core of my nerd-self, but those that manage to get past the analythic part of my brain hit the emotional part. And I think that should be the goal of every game developer introducing a “serious” game trying to tell a story: to reach the emotions of the spectators.

So, while I was looking around blindly for addons at Curse and found a link to a certain cinematic trailer, I just middle-clicked it to open it in a new tab in Chrome, just out of curiosity. After I was done looking around the rest of my tabs (I often open way too many), I find myself facing this masterpiece of a Cinematic Trailer. Ladies and gents, welcome to the Old Republic!.

I have to admit it managed to get me all teary eyed and goose-bumpy with exciteness. So…I’ll just enjoy the moment and try not to think of what to do to get me a computer that can handle that kinda game, cause that’s a bit of a painful thought.

I proceed to embed the video here (assuming I have a clue of how to do that).

Um…wootness?





Achievements, Hard Modes, and Progression Part 1

23 05 2009

NoLoot4u

In this set of articles I am going to explain what I feel has changed and what can still be changed, and how I think it can be done.  Also addressingg some of the QQ I have herd around the intarwebz.

In this article I’m going to talk about the ‘ Raiding spectrum’. How raiding has changed. What hard modes and achievements have done to/for raiding.

Is every one happy? No, but I see more and more people complaining about one side of the story. One small bit inside of an encounter. A Raid instance is so complex is almost not even funny and it seems from the past 4-some years they are continuing to get far more complicated. There really is no single way to do things and there are no “tank ‘n spank”, only in one aspect.
