**A note on dates. Dates are pretty important, but we have no idea how Silvermoon reckons time, so I’ve used the WoWWiki Unofficial Timeline dates for most of it. As such, all years are measured with the beginning of the First War as “Year 0” even though that makes fuckall sense for Blood Elves. You […]

Don’t Stand in the Fire
comment Comments Off on Don’t Stand in the Fire Written by on March 7, 2008 – 10:16 am

  The more TRI explores Tempest Keep the more I like the instance. Granted, it’s been a bit gimmicky as a resto shaman – my entire strategy in there is (quite literally) “don’t stand in fire, spam chain heal”. In a lot of cases, it doesn’t even really matter what I spam chain heal at. Just spamspamspam, because there’s so much random raid damage.

Then last night we fought Al’ar for the first time.

I think my opinion of Phase1 Al’ar is going to be similar to my opinion of Leotheras, except that Al’ar is a lot prettier. Which is to say, I am a useless waste of space.

Fortunately, once phase 2 started up, things picked up a bit. We had some issues with the adds (just figuring out how/where to tank them), but I fully expect to see him toasted next week. We figured out the “don’t stand in the fire” bit for Solarian, and last night the problems were really add-based and not positioning based in phase 1, so I think we’ll have a hang of “don’t stand in fire” for next week.  Personally, I’d like to head back in and see if we can’t take him tonight, but the higherups have decided that there’s  a water elemental, a fish thing, a demon possessed angry-elf, a giant farting dwarf, and a pack of Naga that need to die in SSC tonight (with possibly a few attempts on Lady Snakehair Herself).

Things You Should Know About Shaman

Time for another Blog Azeroth Community Post! This time – What are the things that you wish everyone you grouped with knew about your class?

As one of the few Alliance Shaman (it seems), I have rather a few…

Guest Post! Why Everyone Should…

So, in the interest of being interesting, and because he’s generally awesome like that, today’s post is brought to you by none other than Tarquin ap Danwyrith, rogue, rapscallion, and mastermind behind the madness that is Totally Raids, Incorporated.

I’ve been raiding with TRI since August (I think?) and it’s been a great time. Finding a progressing 25 man raid that not only is RP friendly but that has active character interactions during the raid itself isn’t really easy, even on a (so-called) RP Server, and I’m really happy to have the chance to raid with them. Tarquin, being our fearless leader, has had the rather unenviable job of corralling the 25 headless chickens into being 5/6 SSC/ 2/4 TK, and somewhere in there he’s had some time to reflect on all that leadership…

Testing Post – Patience Appreciated
comment 1 Written by on March 5, 2008 – 5:45 pm

Beginning the process of switching over from wordpress.com to self hosted wordpress blogging!  Yay for some control over how things look around here.  I’d appreciate your patience as I get things transferred over, and hopefully all will go smoothly from here.

I will be switching my feedburner feed to point at this site shortly, so any of you that have subscribed through the RSS feed shouldn’t have too much trouble.

She was barely fifty years old* when she took her first – a contract handed out in Everlook, though how she’d ended up in that godsforsaken ice-sheet she couldn’t be sure. It was a simple thing to kill the woman …

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 – …

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!

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

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 …
