Flame Leviathan take one

Last night we formed up a 25-man and made our first attempt on Ulduar. We zoned in.. and then after a brief discussion jumped on vehicles and started banging up the place. On my first go I ended up as the gunner on a Demolisher. It wasn’t until we were 3/4 of the way through the fight that I figured…

Nibs go blah about patch day

The lessons: Although the patch note says “Soul Shard: This item now has a maximum count of 32 in inventory.” -really- it means “you may only own 32 shards”.. in your bags, in your bank.. whatever. On the plus side, this means I just freed up ~20 slots in my bank. WowMatrix is dead.. long live the Curse client. It’s…

Affliction Spec for 3.1

AGHAST!

This morning, while fiddling with my blogroll/rss reader it came to my attention that fear.win was in neither. OMG!! I’m aghast. If I made a mistake that big how many others have I missed? So, here’s the plea: please comment here if you’re a warlock blogger (or know of one) and you’re -not- listed under warlock bloggers in my blogroll.…

Wow Movie Making

This is more of a meta-Wow topic. Specifically I wanted to step through how I make and narrate a video from Wow footage. It’s not difficult.. but sometimes any basic how-to is better than wandering aimlessly in the dark. Most recent video:

31 Day: Elevator Pitch

First off.. I was really hesitant to post this in the blog. Really, I’ve tried to keep my Warcraft blog on-topic and blogging about my blogging -feels- very off-topic. But I figure I’ll try it out. 🙂 So.. I will be lazily participating in ProBlogger’s 31 Days to Build a Better Blog Project. Hereafter referred to as “31 Days” You…
