Whar’s ma DPS.. AGAIN?

I picked up Mists of Pandaria ~3 months after the initial launch. It took me 1 month to level to 90. Considering I was only leveling a few days a week.. and I took a week or so off when my video card died and to experience battle pets I think it’s safe to say that by the time I…

All sticky with love

Way back in 2009 I completed “What a long strange trip it’s been“. Since then I’ve mostly ignored the holiday “Love is in the Air” until two days ago. 1. I finally realized that the holiday boss(boss-triplet?) is easy and has a chance to drop epic items. Items with higher ilvl than I’m currently rocking. Add to that, you can…

Scenarios: A Little Patience

Yeah.. ok I don’t get it. At some point while leveling I picked up the quest “A Little Patience” which wanted to send me into a scenario. I held onto it for a few days.. first off, I am still kind of puzzled about what a scenario is.. and once I figured out what it was (kind of like a…

Residual raiding fear

Last night, at about 11:30 I ran my warlock down to Deadwind Pass. I want to get a blue Restless Shadeling. This isn’t the first time I’ve tried to do this.. so far I’ve managed to tame only a white Shadeling. It bothers me to see my little “Number of pets tames for this area” and see the bar half…

There ought to be a manual…

I know I’m a late comer to Mists of Pandaria and everyone else probably already knows this.. but here’s the things that I learned that were not obvious. Getting home From Pandaria there is a portal back to your faction home (Stormwind and .. Orgrimmar I assume but I don’t play horde so MMV) in the MoP starting area in…

I could have been a contender…

On Monday it occurred to me that I’ve been getting Valor points in doing my tiller daily quests.. and I started to wonder, “Do I have any other currencies? and are they in danger of capping?”. I finally figured out how to open my currency tab and sure enough, I had 4,000 justice points.. which means sure enough, it’s capped.…

Everything-must-go sale

The end (of leveling professions) is coming!! Or at least that’s what Godmother on Alt: ernative believes. Looking at the evidence I think it’s a fair guess. It maybe that only Blacksmithing is going in 5.2.. but I don’t doubt that the other crafting professions will follow. So I asked myself: Self, what would it mean if you didn’t need…

Srsly Blizz?

Seriously.. WTF? What’s the big idea putting a battle pet out in the middle of the ponds? It’s a damn fool thing if you ask me.. I can’t battle it while I’m swimming.. and I can’t battle it while I’m walking on water. The only thing I can do is kill it and hope it spawns elsewhere, closer to the…

Darksiders II

I don’t play it.. in fact I really don’t know what platform it’s for.. but this parody(?) of the game trailer made me LOL. As an aside: epic pony of green fire-ness. /want.

Ding 90

My warlock ding’d 90 on Friday, February 1, 2013 on some random quest at the start of the Townlong Steppes. First step: train Pandaran flying. I’m surprised how much I missed it. In fact I missed it MORE after I ran back to the old world and spent a couple days flying around taming battle pets. It’s good to be…
