Just so we’re clear

ram·e·kin [ram-i-kin] -noun 1. a small dish in which food can be baked and served. Ramkahen [ram-ka-hen] – noun 1. The cat-like people of Ramkahen are the descendants of the Tol’vir, guardians of Uldum. Though they’ve lost their stone bodies, protecting the secrets of the titans is still a part of their rigid tradition. THESE THINGS ARE NOT THE SAME!!

Questioning the “Experts”

Elitist Jerk’s Simulationcraft runs for Affliction use the Felhound. I wonder if that was intentional. /whistling This totally means I’m going to need to spend quality time with the Simulator. — I’m making slow progress through Deepholm. It’s not a -bad- zone.. I’m just not captured by the story.. and it’s dark and cave-like without much mob variety.. Honestly I…

After a short little research jaunt I shrugged and just moved onto to Maelstrom/Deepholm figuring I’d circle back around and complete the last quests later. Then.. like a thief in the night..…

A question of spec

I’ve started questing in Maelstrom/Deepholm and hit level 83. So far questing has been fairly easy and I’ve just kept with my “normal” Affliction raiding spec. This kind of makes me feel guilty since I -know- that spec isn’t optimal for levelling. So I keep flipping over to my alt spec (which is still 0/0/0) and fiddling with the numbers.…

Maelstrom ho!

I “finished” Vashj’ir. Well.. ok, I’m 145/160 with no leads on the other 15 quests. Teh Intarwebz (and twitter) says the count is borked.. so hopefully Blizz will get that fixed soon so I can get the achievement. The quest line was very enjoyable. I’m glad that I’m a quest reader. That said, the final quest left me at the…

Our story so far…

So this one night.. I heard there was going to be a Cataclysm! and I prepared myself and girded my loins. I’d been fighting elemental invasions in Stormwind, it seemed the thing to do. I was totally prepared for all Hellfire to break loose.. Instead.. I think I passed out.. for some unknown amount of time.. and I woke to…
