Raiding 101: AGGRO!

We have new players coming up in the world.. and for the most part they’ve solo’d their way to 80.. and now they’re starting into raids.. so I wanted to run through the basics of Aggro (and maybe more to follow). If you already know it all.. move along, this topic isn’t for you. Aggro is a measure of how…

Summer can suck it

It’s the middle of summer and the patch rumbles in the distance like a lazy summer thunderstorm. It threatens all your skills, talents, addons, innovations. It’s all up in the air.. any day now the game will change completely.. and you just can’t bring yourself to spend time on something that could go poof like smoke. So you wait.. you…

People not just Players (Alliance/Khaz Modan)

My guild is recruiting.. but be sure to read the message. Don’t just skim.. or read it part way. Read the whole thing. If you’re still interested.. we’re on Alliance-side Khaz Modan (medium pop, alliance heavy PVE server) and run primarily on West Coast time.

Big Sky Country

So. I’m back. Bet you didn’t even miss me 🙂 Well.. I left filler posts while I was gone. Hodir hints.. and all about Jong. But I’m back now. I want to write.. I have the urge.. unfortunately I’ve spent all of 5 minutes in game since I got back. So you get vaguely Wow-related content. I guess it’s better…

Hodir Strategy Notes

– Turn on your in-game sound. He has two skills that you can time based on the audio “Winds of the North” and “AUGHGHGGHHH”. – When he says “Winds of the north”. You look around and find the large runes. Move towards them but not on them until after the ice falls from the ceiling. – After the Flash Freeze…

In Jong We Trust

He went away.. and I was sad because… well first because he was gone.. and second because I’d never mentioned him to you (my dear friends and readers). Then he came back.. and I won’t make the same mistake twice. Go read and discover the treasure that is Jong. He makes me LOL.. long time.

Wintergrasp Open Battleground

From official forums via MMO-Champion: Players that queue for the Wintergrasp battle and are selected to join will be placed into raid groups upon entering the zone. These raid groups will function similarly to the battleground raid groups with a few exceptions. Players can leave it at any time, the leader can issue invites, etc. The only restriction is that…

Whinging about pugs

I figure any VoA pug, especially a 25-man pug has ~3 wipes before it’ll go through. My warlock is off-and-on attempting to get the PVP head piece which would -still- be an upgrade (even though she does now have a purple head piece). So occasionally, when I notice Wintergrasp is about to start I will pop in. Afterwards I’ll stick…

Faking It

I spotted a comment on Blessing of Kings: [in part, Kris wrote:] …its impossible to do a 25 man Naxx pug if they all require you to be 25 man Naxx geared in the first place. Seems odd to me. [in part, periodic responded:] …Having an achievement faking addon helps sometimes too. I gaped at that for a while. Maybe…
