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 took the long way around Old Town, south through Tanner Circle and down Bulwarks, across […]

Why I hate Daily Quests
comment 4 Written by on March 30, 2008 – 7:51 am

(pardon me while I rant a bit. Regular, sane, well thought out Anna will return in 5 minutes)

soapbox Ok – you’re all probably looking at me funny right now. I know – dailies are how you make MONEY, you say. They funded my epic mount and now I have speedy birdy and all this stuff that I can do so much *faster*, plus I’m like super duper special loved by all these people so they give me cheap repairs, crafting patterns, cookies, and free beer.

(ok, maybe not so much on the free beer…)

Alright. Yeah. They make money. That is one of, if not the sole reason that I, occasionally, do them. (The other reason being reputation, which is really just more farming)

That said, I hate them. With a deep seated fiery passion. In fact, it could be said that I hate them more than I hate farming – which is saying something – even though I end up doing them more often than farming (because farming with a holy priest/resto shaman sucks). Even though most of them are little more than glorified farming…

Anyway – I figure there are a few things that could account for this.

Matticus’ Five Barriers to Raid Healing
comment Comments Off Written by on March 29, 2008 – 8:52 pm

Matticus posted the final chapter of his Five Barriers to Raid Healing – Healing Against Your Will.

It is both eloquent and excellent (as usual) – go read and learn! (The whole series is worth your time to read, I promise. Good stuff that. Also, he just helped me fix an addon problem so he says I owe him blog-space. :p )

And while you’re at it, go check out The Rambling Bear’s 10 Commandments of the Raider.  It should be required reading for any new building raid.  And any raid, really, to keep these things fresh in people’s minds.

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 …

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 …

Elevation

October 24, 2014 – 12:01 pm

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 …

Deconstruction

November 19, 2013 – 4:46 pm

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 …

Patrol

November 13, 2013 – 9:59 am

The cathedral bells stop ringing overnight, except for chiming the hours. Three bell strikes, and Angoleth padded softly around another corner of the Cathedral District, staying carefully in the shadows. Trained ears picked up Mogget’s soft breathing – nearly inaudible …

Riders in Lordaeron – Memory

November 7, 2013 – 1:33 pm

(Written by Jolly, Tarquin, and Annalea)

The highlands of Lordaeron were not for the faint of heart; be it the putrescence of the Scourge’s long-lingering remnant, or the rock-strewn hills and valleys that made farmers out of only the most …
