Busting up the Holy Trinity (AKA: What a Paladin isn’t)

In case you’re not a Paladin (or have been living under a rock), the forums are all a-broil with foaming and gnashing over the changes currently on the PTR. Paladin changes detailed here: Paladin PTR Notes for 2.1 AFAICT, there is an agreed-upon-by-all MMORPG trinity […]

Scarlet Monestary and Shattrath City

For West Kingdom Guild night the lowbies (~35-ish) toons decided to do Scarlet Monastery. We started off by getting a couple of quests from Ironforge and then Stormwind.. then we went to Desolace, ( Tatia dinged 37 while “discovering” lands on the way to Desolace) […]


Grimr, who reads this blog but doesn’t comment on it (the lazy slacker), mentioned last night on Vent that the “orange tiger mount” was a rare drop from a level 60 instance. Dropped by High Priest Thekal in Zul’Gurub (NE Stranglethorn Vale, Eastern Kingdoms) [item]Swift […]

Musings on a Mount

Raid on Deadmines

What to do with a guild of level 19 Horde toons? Why toddle off to Westfall and raid deadmines of course. The night started off slowly. I logged into my account and found that someone in our Alliance guild needed help with his level 20 […]

Undocumented flightplans

So last night I hopped a bird from Stormwind to Southshore.. about half way there I realized that I had a quest to turn in (and another one to pickup) in Ironforge. I kicked myself since I was going to be flying right over Ironforge.. […]

Aggro Management

A while back I spotted this link on Peter’s Blog AGGRO MANAGEMENT – TEAMWORK, ASSISTS, HEALING, AND TANKING Somehow when you get into an instance everyone expect you already know this stuff. I suppose it’s because there’s a higher number of people running the instance […]
