Addon: Tourguide

Today is addon day. Tourguide is an addon that helps you find the quests for leveling. It shows an single line of instructions with a icon to tell you what to do. Tekkub, the author, has a fantastic help page over on his site. The addon was just released on Oct 13, 2007 and seems to be under active development.

Addons: Dot Timers

Warlocking is hard work. Addons make my world spin. Here’s the lowdown on dot timers from my perspective. I looked at 3 (or 4 depending on how you look at it).

Our first ‘raid’ on SSC

How does an uber-casual guild who can only field about 10 players get all the way up to Lady Vashj into Serpent Shrine Caverns? By riding on a raider’s raid-id coat tails.

Attuman hates me

I know it’s true. We’ve downed him several times and he continues to drop [item]Worgen Claw Necklace[/item] and silly heal-y leather bracers. Bastard. The beatings will continue until the phat lootz are dropped. Oh yes!

Hook.. Line.. Sinker

As I mentioned yesterday, I have a friend who tried out the game but found it to be “boring. And I died alotâ€?. I talked with her, gave her our information (server/ventrillo) and suggested she log on with us for a while. I also sent her my short description of the game and the classes. She logged in last night…

Is recruiting bad?

He says it’s taken over my life and is preventing me from doing the things I did before. I say I was bored with the things I…

Tailoring…

I didn’t log on until later last night.. because I was sewing. Real life, needle and thread sewing. In fact I’m sewing a linen shirt. I wonder where that puts my RL tailoring skillz.. Anyway.

Instancing 101

While Ette was whiffing her way through Uldaman.. Fiancee ran into a similar problem. Fiancee jumped into LFG and joined up with a Mana Tombs group. They entered the instance and then wiped on both the first and the second pulls in the Tombs. Things were looking very inauspicious. After the second wipe Fiancee offered to start marking mobs for…

Noob, L2Warlock

Last night nothing much was going on in the 70s so I logged on Ette intending to try out a new addon (TourGuide)(review coming) and get a level or two. Ette (Affliction Warlock) is in her low 40s and was in the inn in Hinterlands. Unfortunately, all the Hinterland quests are orange to her.. so it looks like she’s a…

CE -> Exalted

Fiancee wants to get Beast Lord shoulders for his Hunter. This requires many many runs through Steamvaults. Luckily I love him.. and I want to get CE Exalted in order to buy the mount in 2.3. We ran Steamvaults 8 times. The shoulders dropped once.. but Fiancee lost to another hunter in the party. Very sad for fiancee.
