Singing the praises of Raider101

A while back Rohan, from Blessing of Kings, started the Raider101 Wiki. I don’t think I’ve mentioned it here but I’ve found it extremely helpful to me when I’m playing an alt.. or when trying to help a guildie who plays a class I don’t. I wrote most of the Affliction Warlock wiki and will update (and simplify) it somewhat…

Heroic Ahn’kahet sucks balls

We only got 2/4 bosses down in Heroic Ahn’Kahet: The Old Kingdom. Hints on Boss #1: kill the big spiders or else everyone becomes immune. Hints for Boss #2: the blood sucking is shadow damage. So Priests should do their shadow protection. Warlocks, when he phases out pop your Shadow Ward and prevent 3k of his damage. Hints for Boss…

Making the numbers

WWS seems to still be borked. We’re casting about to find a new true love to munch our numbers and we’ve stumbed on WOW Meter Online. Last night’s Void Reaver kill. Observations: – meets the “epeen building” portion of our number munching requirements. We can definitely tell who topped the damage meter. – We can’t seem to find the trash.…

Raid stacking 3.0.x

Almost everything is now raid wide. A couple of times I’ve corrected our Raid Leader when she started reorganizing the raids to “optimize” buffs. That said, there are still a few “party only” buffs. Shaman: healing stream, mana spring, and mana tide Shadow Priest: Vampiric Embrace

“SILENCE! I kill you!”

West Kingdom is a very friendly, vocal guild. We hang out on vent all the time. We’re constantly heckling each other. BUT we’re busting into the raiding scene and we decided that “The Raid Leader is in charge” and if you’re not the raid leader you should stay off the vent channel unless you have questions. I’ve found this really…

Magister’s Terrace: Vexallus

Speaking of MgT. That second boss.. Vexallus, there’s a rumor that if you’re toon is -touching- the candleabra next to the boss that the static discharge will jump from you to the candleabra. Meaning you can kill the sparks and then the boss without having to worry bout the increased arcane damage. So -anyone- could kill the sparks.. and groups…

The Blue Beam

Oh, just a note, it is possible for a single warlock to take the full duration of Netherspite’s blue beam. Dot him up and then use Drain Life. The added +spell allows you to get more life back than you’re losing to the increased shadow damage. Occasional heals help. Also.. um.. be careful on the timing of you Curse of…
