Ruminations of Random

No big topic today.. lots of little random. (Random blogger is Random) I’m not sure how I’m going to handle it.. but this is -my- blog. I read alot of stuff every day. Sometimes there something interesting in a blog/article/blue post.. but it’s not enough to make a full blog post about. My plan is to add a new little…

(Deprecated) Warlock Hit Rating

DEPRECATED! This information has changed as of patch 3.1. Please see the updated page about hit rating. Unlike melee combat, it seems that spells are on a two roll system for hit and crit. The system rolls once to see if you hit.. and then rolls again to see if you crit. This means that if you can’t hit, you…

The freedom of flight

My first toon was 70 more than a year ago. About a week after she turned 70 I finally had enough money and I bought a flying mount. I’ve been happily winging around Outlands ever since. The same thing happened with my second 70. Immediately after turning 70 she bought a flying mount and has been flitting about on it…

Secret love for my felpuppy

I’m not normally all mushy. I’m a methodical type person.. but I have to share.. I really love running around with my felpuppy, Fzuugsomethingorother. The “Grumble growl” as he runs off to attack the mob. His little.. um.. antenna that just stick out at the top of the water when we are swimming.. His happy little gallop as he runs…

Making the numbers

WWS seems to still be borked. We’re casting about to find a new true love to munch our numbers and we’ve stumbed on WOW Meter Online. Last night’s Void Reaver kill. Observations: – meets the “epeen building” portion of our number munching requirements. We can definitely tell who topped the damage meter. – We can’t seem to find the trash.…

Raid stacking 3.0.x

Almost everything is now raid wide. A couple of times I’ve corrected our Raid Leader when she started reorganizing the raids to “optimize” buffs. That said, there are still a few “party only” buffs. Shaman: healing stream, mana spring, and mana tide Shadow Priest: Vampiric Embrace

Wrath Priority List:

– get fancy tabard from Scourge event for toons. – figure out who I’m playing to 80 first (probably warlock independently.. and pally with guild group since pallies are gimped)** – figure out warlock spell rotation that isn’t gimp on trash – figure out warlock spell rotation that keeps corruption up on the boss and has good dps for boss…

Sensory Overload (I think I need a nap)

I’m feeling a bit frenetic. There’s too much to do.. and I can’t focus.. so I’m trying to do it all. I feel overstimulated. I want to just crawl into a safe room and not come out until Wrath is launched.. but I also feel like there’s too much to do and I don’t want to miss out on a…

Bad Hair Daily

Now that we can do it.. we need a compelling reason to do it. I really want a daily quest that messes up your hair. You know.. everyday, if you’re good about your daily quests.. you do this thing.. where the mob randomly “messes up” your hair. Bonus points if it “messes it up” to a hairstyle that isn’t in…

Affliction: more scribbles

Learning to beat the drum I think.. the affliction dot rotation is complex because we have two different drums. That is, we have two competing cast sequences. In order to achieve 100% uptime we would need to be able to weave both of these together. Wow.. we’re starting to sound like BC Hunters.
