Nothing rhymes with scenario

I continue to be dissatisfied with scenarios. I’ve run a few an I keep running into the same problems. Simply put, they’re confusing. When I’m doing a quest if I’m confused about what I’m supposed to do, or what to do next I consult the quest text. Usually there, carefully spelled out, is the instructions for this quest(“Oh! I’m supposed…

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…

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…

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…

Vale of Eternal Meh

Last night I had a grump. I’m playing through Kun-Lai Summit and I got to the part where I saw the opening of the gate to the Vale of Eternal Blossoms. [ Aside: So.. ok. The gate is now open. I’m just going to keep my mouth closed about how dang silly a “great wall of Pandaria with a gate”…

Oh Snap!

…and just like that it changes…. again. I guess I know better.. it being patch day and all.. but on Tuesday EJ Affliction thread said Imp was the best bet with a spiffy talent spec and specific glyphs. Then, like -that- it changed and today it’s back to saying the Succy is now the best pet with a slightly fiddled…

Where are we going? and why are we in this Handbasket?

Last night as I was cooking dinner (Ground beef and barley stew)(It was yummy) my fiancĂ© informed me that our raiding group’s main tank has decided to leave the game. There were a lot of different things that fed into his decision.. but there it is. I really like the tank that’s leaving.. and I’ll be sad to see him…

Ripsnarl’s Ghosts

In Deadmines on the fight with Ripsnarl.. where you have to quickly kill off the ghosts while the boss runs in and out of view.. how do you handle it? I ran into a keyboard-throwing incident over the weekend where I was in a group with a shadow priest and the two of us were struggling to get enough damage…

Since we’re on the subject…

Bursty classes (Rogues and hunters I’m looking at you) who pipe up in Vent with “Hardie har, looket, that last 5 second long fight I hit 38k damage” .. you can all just die in a fire. It’s cold comfort to know that I’ll probably kick your ass in the boss fight.. but SERIOUSLY stop linking the DPS meters after…
