New MC Post: "Addon: PallyPower" http://bit.ly/6JMMgt #warcraft #pallypower # Bad attitude/anxiety attributed to work perf reviews. Please forgive me(and for God's sake, stop poking me. I won't be held accountable) # Bear tanks: What are you doing to stay relevant in ICC? We're finding our bears to be v. squishy & we're looking for options. # Bear Tanks: Hmmm based…

Raiding Nostalgia

The raiding weekly on my server is to kill Sartharion. We formed up a team and found that we had 14 people interested in going. On a lark we flipped it to OS-25 to see if we could 14-man the 25-man. It turns out we could. Actually.. with 14 people in the 25-man content it made it feel almost as…

Nevermelting Ice Thingie

Having determined (or rather been pummeled about the head and neck with the fact) that the Nevermelting Ice Thingie is one trinket that is relatively easy to get (as it drops in 5-man heroics rather than 25-man heroics) and out-trinkets quite a few trinkets from ICC-25. I finally decided that rather than leaving it to luck I would instead manually…

TNB 74 – Elite Hardcore Altoholic

Last week in TNB 74, I had the opportunity to chat with Tristan Johnson from The Elitist Podcast. Tristan is a member of the guild “No Chicks Allowed” which is a hardcore guild which is highly ranked in the US and world wide. It was very interesting to chat with Tristan about how a “Hardcore” guild differs from all (two)…

ICC with a side of Mocha

This last week <Caffeine> had a group complete OS+3 for the achievement, mount and titles. I wasn’t in that group (I was getting ready to record TNB) but I hope to be in future OS+3 runs. We’re also progressing through ICC nicely. We downed the Lower Spire and Festergut and we are working on Rotface. Rotface is kicking us in…

Addon: PallyPower

From the Curse page: “Pally Power is an add-on that provides an interactive and easy to use interface that allows you to control assignments of blessings for yourself and, if you are a party leader or an assistant, for other paladins in your group or raid. You don’t need to be a paladin to control raid/party blessings.” “Easy to use”…

Twitter Weekly Updates for 2010-01-24

Saw "Book of Eli". Liked the visuals. Story was very simple. Too much overly overt "faith will save you" & too many loose ends. Overall: C- # RT @Saresa: AAARGH I hate people who have twitter announce EVERYTHING they do in game! STFU already! # Dear Blizz: can we please stop having position dependent fights in round rooms that look…

“If you choose the red door, turn to page 42”

My fiancĂ© is playing “Dragon Age: Origins”. I figure at some point in the future I may play through it.. but not yet. Right now my plate is full and I don’t need more things to fill up my time. That said.. occasionally I’ll glance over his shoulder and see what he’s working on. For the most part DA:O reminds…

Addon: DrainSoulTimer

DrainSoulTimer is a fairly simple addon. It can make a sound when your target enters “execute” range (below 25%) and fire a sound when a Drain Soul ticks. At the time of this writing the most updated version is found in WowInterface and is compatible with patch 3.3. The addon’s setup screen allows you to turn the execute/tick sounds on/off…
