Home is where you set your Hearthstone

My hearth is set in Dalaran. The Legermain Inn to be precise. I found that the “alliance-side” inn was just too busy. A quick survey of my guildies shows that they hearth in Dalaran so they can be close to all of the Northrend instances and to the city portals in case they need to go to somewhere in the…

Immutables

Well, it’s official, Paid Race Change is now live. At this point, the only immutable choice at the time of character creation is Class. Everything else can be changed/fiddled/fixed. Fundamentally I’m ok with that. I’m not planning to take advantage of the service. If I had my way Draenei would be able to be Warlocks, but as it is, they…

Addon: CLSaver

CLSaver (short for Combat Log Saver) toggles your /combatlog on/off as you enter/leave raid instances. You could totally do it manually.. but if you’re like me.. you’d forget. CLSaver does it automatically. /combatlog save all of the entries in your Combat Log into a file in your WoW Logs directory. This file can be uploaded to online WoW parsers (WWS,…

Last night, after a sucessful ToC-10 guild run (where every boss dropped +hit cloth and I was the only DPS clothie in the raid)(poor me) and a sucky Ony-25 pug (we experienced failure to tank and wiped repeatedly), finally I logged onto my baby hunter and helped a level-appropriate guildie group run Ramparts and then Blood Furnace. The group was…

Fail pugs (Boston Terriers) make me sad

I’ve been pugging lately. Not much going on in-guild for 25s.. and well guild isn’t doing OS+3 Zerg.. so I’ve been looking elsewhere for satisfaction. Unfortunately lately I’ve been finding a lot of fail.

Onyxia.. which pet?

Onyxia is a fight of three parts. Part 1: on the ground, tank and spank. Stay out from the front (cleave/fire breathing) and behind (tail swipe) her.. and whale on her until she reaches some percent (honestly I don’t know what percent) at which point she walks across the room and takes off into the air. Part 2: Ony flies…

Addon: LinkWrangler

Sometimes you just need to look at more tooltips than the default UI shows. LinkWrangler allows you to open multiple linked items all at the same time. When I’m cycling through my gear trying to figure out which two rings are best (out of the six I have) I’ll whisper the links to myself and then open them all up…
