Spheniscidae

So.. yesterday I learned a new word. spheniscidae: noun comprising all existing penguins I actually had to look it up. 🙂 Go Go Blizz for Vocabulary building.

Pretty Trinket

Trinkets scare me. I mean they’re lovely bits of sparkle that have tasty buffs on them.. but for some reason, I have a very hard time telling if trinket A is better than trinket B. I blame the proc. For some reason the proc part of the trinket just scares me. The math of the proc just makes my eyes…

That reminds me…

I knew I’d read about it before but I’d forgotten where. That is, the Nameplate change. In 3.3 they’re making a couple of changes to the way Nameplates work. Read this post from the official forums.. almost a year ago: http://blue.mmo-champion.com/27/12065380712-healer-boredom-a-ui-issue.html It’s a very very cool idea. I’m very pleased to see them taking this suggestion into account. I’m really…

Addon: CloseUp

Ok.. I’ve been posting about too many totally useful addons lately. Here’s one that’s frivioulous. Closeup allows you to spin you character and zoom in/out in the changing room. It’s a vanity addon that lets you see what things look like close up. It also works in the character pane.. and on inspect. Really.. it’s a tiny little vanity thing.

Five Things: Scribbles of ideas

These things are cool.. but not really enough (yet) to string out into a full post.. so I’ll babble about them and see what comes. Thing 1:Nameplates On the 3.3 PTR they’re making nameplates visible from further away.. and not jump around.. and pay attention to LOS Verdict: Bad for PVPers (which I’m not one of) but potentially good for…

The Cleaning Power of Ruts

I think I’m in a rut. It’s not a bad rut.. but it’s kind of a rut. My evenings are as follows: – Log into Pally and use Alchemy to make an epic gem (currently making dreadstones). Send stone to banker toon. – Log into banker toon. Check to see if last gem sold (usually they do), check to see…

Affliction, the imaginary spec

The scene: Onyxia 25 PUG. I’m one of 4 warlocks in the run. A quick inspect of the others show that they’re all cookie-cutter destruction. Out of the blue, during the standard PUG discussion** where every shaman demands 4 different pally buffs and someone randomly whines that they’re missing buffs but they don’t know which one.. and repeated requests for…

Addon: TBag – Shefki

.photoImgDiv img { padding: 0px; } I think TBag is one of the very first addons I ever installed. It’s been part of my UI since March 2007 (about a month after I started playing WoW). TBags is an indispensable inventory addon. It works right out of the box with no additional fiddling. It shows your inventory all-at-once and then…
