Hello interwebz! I was working on some elaborate post but I took a brake to mess around with my new UI. I came along a post on WoWI. I wont link to the post.. since its pretty obvious and I found it on the front page, but I don’t wanna give any one at WoWI any greeph.. Besides.. I think they handled it quite nicely. So we will call the poster.. DephKnight and I’m at loss for words on his final paragraph:

“PLEASEEEEEE !! Someone do this, so sick of spamming several buttons and making decicions while in combat at the same time as I am supposed to read raid chat and answer and keeping track of healt/RP and what the boss does and what others do … As you can see it is an mission impossible for a human
to play a game that needs that much attention ..” – Def Knite

Like many other people at WoWI, I thought he was joking. In the post he was asking for a UI to act like a Bot. To basically do his rotation as a human would, while he did every thing else. It’s a shocking state to see this since well.. I do all those things with one hand behind my back and a sandwich in my mouth, while watching tv. Okay maybe not the Watching tv thing.. I tend to zone out when I do that. One replier did state it perfectly we will call him LeetMage

“I suggest turning off the TV shows. Stop trying to play your gaming console at the same time and just focus on your raid/group” – 1337|V|463

Thanks leet mage.. You rock!

Broken Gems and lil’ missy.

5 08 2009


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. Read the rest of this entry »

Achievements, Hard Modes, and Progression Part 1

23 05 2009


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.

Vel Vrs PTR Part 2 Argent Tournament

18 03 2009

Considering we have hit a big snag in both Ak and I playing on the PTR. This will take a bit to release. Damn Vista!

I wanted to head out to Ulduar but since I don’t have my guild there to test, I feel that my presence up there would be rather… Pointless. So I’ll let them test in peace. MMo Champs Videos are enough to give me a heads up on what will go on in there. I really don’t think I’ll be hitting that place up when it comes out any way.. I refuse to go unless I feel my guild is ready, and we all know I’m not in Premonition.

However, I am and Ak is going to continue (Once Vista agrees with Ak again) to work with the Argent Tournament. I didn’t want too much of a spoiler. I just wanna see the difficulty of the Dailies, and what I can get from the Quartermasters. I’ll also have to check out the priest changes. I know we are not going to get our AOE Shield witch made me shed a tear. Divine Hymm is going in and out like a good nights fun. However it was a bit of a useless spell. I couldn’t ever see myself using it.

Achievements and Snoring

6 02 2009

velmounts Okay, as you can see.. I’ve been rather bored. I went back and got Exalted with all the Ally factions. Which I should have been doing my Son of Hodir and Ebon Blade dailies.  It sounds rather weird but I’d rather do that kinda stuff then Dailies. For some odd reason I’m not quite comfortable in Northrend yet. There’s some part of me that is still attracted to old world content. Maybe since I didn’t expense as much as I was hoping to. Ever since I “dailied” (woot! Made up suffix combos FTW!) my 5,000 gold for Meara‘s epic flier. I have been procrastinating on dailies. I find them so redundant and every one in the right mind these days are doing them. So they are vary crowded. Even though the Mobs re-spawn faster. They tend to re-spawn on me when I freeze my Steel, I end up having to farm more Frost Essence.

With the Clutter in the dailies area. The only way to really get them done, is to do them early in the morning. To be honest… I’d rather nap… (shh Ak). I just got to friendly with Sons to get my shoulder Glyphs since Vel didn’t have the Aldor exalted glyph. I will probably grind to exalted when I get my Valorous Shoulders, but considering the way we handle our loot in my guild; It will be a while before I will get it. So I have plenty of time.

Now! Back to the  Ambassador of the Alliance/Horde. If you are wondering how I did it. It is rather simple and can take you two weeks, maybe 3. First off, World Events. Right now it’s the Lunar Festival. If your not doing it for the Pants Suits like I did. You can do it while getting a few other achievements along the way. Like the Kalimdor and Eastern Kingdoms Exploration, along with most of the Classic Instances. You can also level your Professions that you forgot to or you wanted to pick up but never did, like my self. I went back and worked on my Fishing, Cooking, and Mining while I was out there doing those. It is 75 rep for all 5 factions each time you just talk to an Elder.  So that is roughly 5,625 rep to each faction to a total of 28,125 rep accost the board. That’s less Rune-cloth and Low level quests you have to do.

Last tip. Once you got most of the easy Elders. Don’t start turning in Rune-cloth yet! What you do is, go back to the old starting areas and start blasting through the quests. This is pretty mundane but it will take you like an hour to get an area complete. There is a catch to this though. Places like Durotar, Elwyn Forest, etc. Level 1-12 areas will only give you rep with that faction. Any where above that like for example, Westfall and Barrens will give you a thing called “Roll Over Rep“. So after you are exalted with Stormwind, stop your questing in Elwyn Forest and head to Westfall and Redridge to get roll over rep with the other factions. It may not be a lot but 5 or so quests at 86 roll over reputation will give you a Bubble in revered. While your are doing this you are working on another Achievement The Lore master for Kalimdor and Eastern Kingdoms. There are a lot more achievements along the way like Pest Control, and To All The Squirrels I’ve Loved Before.

After you have finished all those quests you then then start turning in your rune-cloth. I would, how ever, save that for a some gold off the auction house. It takes 60 to get a small amount of rep from the cloth quartermasters. So in the end questing in low levels seems to be much faster method. I think I will go in to more depth later if you guys want to know more.

yawnvelOn another note, like I said before I’m working on leveling my mining. While I have been at the annoying running around one area in a circle bit. I have managed to make a decent amount of gold off of the ore I have been collecting along the way. Originally I was collecting the low level Ore for my alliance paladin, Arilla. To level her blacksmithing, but I would have to gather some 500 Iron Ore to smelt in to Iron Bars and Steel. It ended up taking much more time then I was willing to put in to the endeavor. I fed up with it all together and headed straight for the ore to sell on the Auction House. I made so far roughly 1,500 gold just from the ore alone. The Mithril sells on Sen’jin right now for a bout 37 gold a stack and Throium for about 47 gold. It seems to be vary worth it. Now that I have Finlay moved on to Fel Iron; I’m waiting to see how much people are willing to put out for that stuff. I think, how ever, I will keep the motes for Arilla’s blacksmithing when I return for her. I’m not exactly sure if I can both sell them or by pass them when leveling BS, with the Cobalt Craft-ables. Besides Vel will need all the Saronite and Cobalt Ore for prospecting for her Jewelcrafting and for the Daile quests to get some of that Dragon’s Eye stuff *Dolls over them*.

Fishing how ever, at low levels meaning BEFORE Wrath content, doesn’t seem to sell at all on the auction house. I, how ever, have herd many stories about how most any thing fishing in the 70-80 areas are selling for mass amounts of gold on the AH. With this in mind, I will save money on my Mega Mamoth Meals and Contribute a bit on the Feasts for raiding. (*Looks at the small feast* Hmm Pocket Shaman!) Besides the Salty title I find rather amusing. “Salty Velun”…no?…okay well I do!

Last but not least. When I am raiding.. I’m doing this :……>lights “Beam me up SCOTTY!” Agent Shmudson said.. Before He put the Train set down. That’s a total of about 9 moonstone thingies in one spot.. It  hurt the eyes but was hella fun while waiting for every one to get to Naxx. I also love my Iron Boot Flask I’m happy I got it. I think I’m addicted.

Word of Advice from this week.. Please people. Don’t gank nodes from people! We all hate it, I’m sure even you do!

::I hope I spell checked it all.. More worried about that then grammar ^^;;. Keeps telling me all my “ade”s are misspellings O.o;; ::

LLS What?

19 01 2009

Well, I’m trying to post more often but I guess I just have to finaly admit to my self I’m never going to be a frequnt poster :P. Guess it dosn’t matter much any way.

So what have I been up too? I have been getting realy well geared. I’m almost both hit and expertize caped on Vel. Verina is level 70 now, and I’m working on Miara again.

We have just gotten down Thaddius in 25man NAXX. It surpizes me a lot how a simple fight can be taken so complicated-ly, or be so underestimated. I love that fight, it’s pritty much welfare epics. Not hinting blizz to make it any more difficalt. My guild had been stuggeling on it for about 2 weeks. It gose to show why raiding guilds have Vent/Teamspeak for a reason. Plus addon requierments like Omen/DBM(bigwigs).

I wasn’t there for the Epic take down since my router has been giving me LLS (Ledgendary Lag Syndrom). To the point I disconnect at lest once a fight if at all, or focing me to play with a 700-900 latency. Ak and I know it’s the router since we tryed to plug in threw LAN and there was NO lag, what so ever. Odd enough it seems to be always during raid times. BAH! We should get it fixed soon or some heads will roll.

Will not be raiding next week since he has been leting me raid the last two weeks. I will be ancy to raid but it just seems like this time it’s going to have to be like that. I guess it will give me time to work on my reputations. I just hit Honored with Sons, and well I don’t even have enough Gold to by my shoulder glyph, and I’m half way to revered with Ebon Blade for my head glyph, but that will take me a few days or so. Plus they annoy me. Not having an Epic Flying mount in Wrath is a pain in the arse. *shrug* Some day Vel will get it but right now I got 5 alts to level. Hehe.
