That has a nice ring to it…

12 05 2010

As there is a dirth of changes coming in between now and Catalcysm, there has been a slump of blogging. Well, for me at least. I’ve struggled with trying to find something that I enjoy writing about. I love healing, but I can’t find myself writing a topic that hasn’t already been covered in tons of different places. So, I guess I will just post about random things, enjoy.

A Fool and their Money…

2 05 2010

With the introduction of every new feature to WoW, there is normally a price tag. Companion pets? Cost money. Scaling mounts for all your toons? Cost money. Faction change? Race change? Server change? All money. The amount of money can be reasonable… but when you begin to pair things, it gets a little much. And when things don’t work out, it can quickly snowball.  Not blaming Blizzard for their overpriced services, I blame myself for falling into a situation that destroyed itself by pure coincidence.

Childhood Raid Guide: The Eye of Eternity

21 04 2010

Hello kids, welcome to the Childhood Raid Guide. Another thing for me to play around with. The background: Malygos was the Weekly on Khadgar this week and I thought to myself, “Oh gosh… this is gonna be terribad. No one knows how to do this.” I saw in /2, “LFM [Malygos Must Die!], link achievement.” Now, normally I am against this, but for a fight as such, it helps for people to know what they are doing and it is over a year old… if you haven’t done it, there are very few excuses. We got in there, sparks weren’t stacked. We were running melee heavy with only 1 ranged, and the DK who we assigned to position/stack sparks was dropping them on the other side of the platform. Drake fighting was terrible… everyone died because they didn’t know that if you sit on top of Malygos, you get hurt and die rather fast. But… that is for later. Let us begin.

Malygos is mean, covets Magic, and has very stinky breath.

They did what?!

13 04 2010

I’d like to dedicate this post to my friend Kiara who recently dinged a Druid to 80. While it isn’t a Shaman… I have a druid, so I can let her slide. I was talking to her today and she kinda lended to this post about mistakes.

We, as players, are human and we err. Except for the bots. And the hamsters. It may come from inexperience with content, lack of reading patch notes, or just a general lack of understanding about the World… of Warcraft. So, I’d like to present you with a few examples of mistakes that are both humorous and common.

Never Badmouth Synergy

New Synergy? Does that sound like News Energy to anyone else?

Get used to this picture... I'm too lazy to take any other screenshots, haha.

3.3.3 Elemental Glyph Choices

23 03 2010

A while back I wrote up an Elemental Shaman guide and it has gone to pieces with all the changes since then. Back then, T7 was in full swing, Ulduar was sitting out in front like a fresh apple. Things were so stagnate for the Elemental Shaman world. 3.3.3 is here today and it looks like there are no Shaman changes… oh wait, what does that line say right there?

  • Flame Shock: The damage-over-time component of this ability can now produce critical strikes and is affected by spell haste.

Oh really? So… now there is no need to have the Flame Shock glyph. Well, maybe if you want 60% increased damage upon critical ticks from Flame Shock. I think now would be a good time to evaluate these glyph options that are at stake.

Restoration Shaman Guide, 3.3 style

2 03 2010

I was browsing recent things and saw that I really haven’t written an updated Resto Shaman guide for new patches (not too much has changed, though). So, you want to go Resto? Or perhaps you are already Resto and want to spruce things up a bit? Well, you’ve come to the right place. Pulled an old guide out and decided to spruce it up as well. Stumbled across a guide the other day and saw the writer opening a can of Eldritch Worms when making certain suggestions. Let’s get down to business…

I have so many X chromosomes it'll blow your mind...
