It didn’t take long to get from Thunder Bluff to the Echo Isles – Ankona took advantage of a wyvern so she could think and plan before getting to her destination. She had information to confirm with the spirits – was Gromnor dead? Was he really in the northern part of the Eastern Kingdoms, somewhere […]

Dear Blizzard:

I appreciate the addition of all the new content in the Isle of Quel’Danas. However, you need to adjust some of your graveyard defaulting. Seeing as how I just died out on those stupid boats, and got defaulted to the graveyard in… FAIRBREEZE VILLAGE. Yes – on another continent. Yes, in a horde newbie zone. Yes, full of guards.

Being that it’s on another continent, I could not run back to get my corpse and was forced to take the durability hit and 10 minutes of rez sickness, rez, avoid about 40 guards, and then make my way to Zul’Aman. And fly. Back to my body.

Thanks for wasting 15 minutes of my life,

Dear Asshat Druid:

If you are trying to do a daily quest, and you pull 4 more mobs than you can handle, and someone buffs and heals you, it is not considered nice to go and aggro as many more as you can and then drag them all back to the person that hit you with a renew.

Go die in a fire,

Obligatory Badge Loot Post
comment Comments Off on Obligatory Badge Loot Post Written by on April 10, 2008 – 8:53 am

So – Feathermoon is juuuuuust about to open up its new 2.4 Sunwell Badge vendor. Probably tonight sometime. And so, here you have the loot that I want from the vendor.

annorah4 For Annorah (only covering Resto loot, since I don’t have enough badges to think about other loot yet):

For a grand total of 350 Badges. Annorah currently has about 130, and that mace is *by far* the biggest upgrade for her right now. NEEDS MOAR BADGERS!

annalira4 For Annalira:

  • Shroud of the Lore’nial – not very pretty, but one heck of an upgrade. Also an upgrade for my shadow gear.
  • Boots of Incantations – can you say OM NOM NOM? I want these boots something fierce (especially considering I don’t own a pair of damage boots and these are practially DESIGNED for a smite priest). PURCHASED
  • Legwraps of Sweltering Flame – probably won’t get upgraded until everything else has already been purchased, since I’m just a primal might or two away from spellstrike pants.
  • Fused Nethergon Band – more spell hit = good. Next on the list, both because 60 badges is easier than 100, and because I have a new chestpiece from Nightbane.

Obviously I’m focusing on +hit gear for Anna, since that will let me spec out of the +hit talent and into Surge of Light (which will increase my DPS significantly as well as help with some of the mana issues I have when I have to both DPS and offheal in one fight). Anna has about 100 badges, and I’ve not decided what I’m buying first. Quite possibly the boots, and if not, then the shroud. If I end up with MORE badges to burn, possibly the Scryer’s Blade of Focus, but I’m not holding my breath, considering the gear above totals 335 badges.

angoleth3 For Angoleth:

Nothing on this list would be a bad choice for An, but either the pants or the chestpiece will be her first purchase. As a survival hunter, whichever offers the most AGI for the Badges will probably be picked up, but it also depends on what upgrades she snags out of Karazhan before then. Especially since, right now, she has about 50 badges, and needs a total of 350 for gear alone. And probably another 250-300 for weapons.

Resto Shaman vs. Karathress – a Healing Guide
comment 1 Written by on April 9, 2008 – 7:34 am

This is one in a series of posts covering resto shaman-specific information for tier4 and tier5 boss fights. It will NOT be a boss kill strategy, rather a list of tips and tricks for your friendly neighborhood healy flavored shaman to make these fights run a little more smoothly.

Other Tuesday guides: The Lurker Below, Leotheras, Hydross, Tidewalker.

notebook2 by woodsy

So your raid leader announced that next raid you’ll be taking on Fathom Lord Karathress. You’ve made some progress in SSC, you’re killing Tidewalker or Leotheras (or both), and now another angry naga and his cronies are on the list.

The Stink Eye, Part II: You remind me of the babe

An old story, reposted here as I’m shaking the mothballs off Ankona and needed an easy way to show people a little bit about the (batshit) things she gets up to. Enjoy, and don’t be too creeped out!

It really …

Very First Impressions

November 14, 2014 – 7:32 am

So I haven’t finished the intro quests yet (the server queues from the reduced server capacity due to the DDOS attacks meant I only got about an hour to play yesterday), but I’m finding that Draenor is pretty cool so …

A Girl and her Dog

The morning of the all hands summon to the Blasted Lands, Aely went for a walk. The late fall air was clear and cool, and leaves crunched under their feet in the less-traveled parts of the streets. She and Roger …

Counting down to Warlords

November 11, 2014 – 3:09 pm

What a long strange trip it’s been. I’ll be the first to admit that, at the beginning, I wasn’t sure Pandaria was going to be for me. I’ve made clear my dislike of daily quests, and that seemed to be …

Squire Benjamin William Sullivan stood in the middle of Light’s Hope Chapel in his underpants.

Actually, it was white linen pants and a shift, but the effect was approximately the same. The little chapel was warm, on the edge of …

Introducing the Newest Anna

June 29, 2014 – 4:39 pm

So I’m not really in a position where I should be creating alts. This, of course, does nothing to deter me from making alts when the inspiration strikes. I’ve been really enjoying my Alliance hunter, and she’s my raiding main …

Bad things are happening in Stormwind – and beyond.

The Hand of Lothar, they call themselves.

Yva Darrows was their first target.

Tirith and Aely were their second and third.

They have since… expanded their reach and escalated their methods …
