Sneaking into Thunder Dome

On Sunday I finally got a chance to log in and try out the new 5.2 Shadow-Pan Assault stuff. In general I like the dailies.. honestly I -love- being a leaping lizard. In specific.. I dislike doing dailies that don’t result in an immediate reputation gain. I -get- that I’m moving the needle along for unlocking the content.. but it’s…

I can haz Epic Neck?

I logged into AskMrRobot this morning to see what new updates are available and where best to spend my valor/justice points after the patch and I spotted a link that says “Get a level 522 neck TODAY!” Yes please. The sad part, for me, is that I can’t log into the game again until next week. But you better believe…

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…

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.…

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…

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”…

A tale of critters and battle pets

I hit 89 last night. Again it kind of snuck up on me. While questing, I spotted a gold dot for a flower. I don’t think I’ve mentioned it here before.. but I’m one of -those- people when it comes to flowers.. you know, people hate questing with me because in the middle of making a bee line for the…

Demonic Gateway.. situational.. but interesting

Questing along I dinged 87 and barely noticed.. it turns out I also didn’t notice a new spell which showed up on my toolbar: Demonic Gateway Last night I was mulling over my toolbar trying to improve my casting sequence (ie, make it less awkward and make sure I’m hitting all the buttons I should be hitting) when I finally…

Mutterings About Shadowflame

Shadowflame Ok.. so a while back they gave me -this-. I’ve successfully ignored it.. for a long time. I mean gimme a break.. it’s cast in melee range.. blegh. BUT TPTB (mostly EJ) say that casting it as part of your rotation will increase your damage output. Sokay. So I spent a little time poking at a test dummy and…
