How to Wipe Less on Heroic
Northrend Beasts

For the last few weeks we’ve been working on Heroic 25 Northrend Beasts, the first boss in a “Tribute” run. Heroic is really a huge step from Normal difficulty. The first night of wiping had me convinced that we needed a heck of a lot more gear before we’d be able to beat it. But we’ve been working on it pretty much each raid night since then.

Since we killed him, I suppose that I’m qualified to offer some suggestions on how we did it.

An Arathi Basin Bedside Story

This story takes place in Warsong Gulch, Arathi Basin and Wintergrasp. And it all started with a 40 minute Wintergrasp Timer.

Dust-y Black Belts

This weekend I found myself considering how best to build up my stores of Infinite Dust. I have Enchanting and Tailoring as my two professions but I’ve noticed that while my stores of Abyss Crystals and Dream Shards seem to be increasing, I never seem to have enough Dust to enchant my own gear these days. I just can’t get enough greens.

The Druid Princess: A Tree Fairytale
(Chapter 2)

A Tree Fairytale is set in the magical kingdom of Dalaran and other raid instances. Its about 1 tree’s adventures with her raiding guild and getting to know a new druid that joined the guild.

Carry Me

On Saturday the daily was Heroic Oculus. I picked up the quest and put myself in LFG and had an invitation before I had finished stocking up on candles. I was the last member (score!) and I was told to dps (omg!).

Bringing Down the Bloodlust
Instance Servers

I’ve always kind of assumed the instances servers are battlegroup-wide. I run lots of instances. Well at least the daily heroic each day. It doesn’t take long to get a group going from LFM. But obviously we’re not doing enough to bring down our instance servers. If that’s the case we need to organise a mass instance-launching assault while we still can. Before Blizzard fix it. And we’re running out of time!

Faction Change: Alexria the Blood Elf Mage is No More!

I nearly fell off my chair at work…. here I was thinking I would have to wait a good few months to change my level 70 mage into a cute little gnomey, but it’s already available! I’ve put the credit card details in and have started the process, farewell Alexria the Blood Elf and say [...]

The Prince and the Army of the Damned

We’ve been raiding and fighting and jousting in Northrend for all this time to take a shot at Arthas and kill him. That’s a lot of anticipation. And the actual final encounter with Arthas needs to live up to that. I’m not talking about the fight being hard. This is not a the-game-is-too-easy-and-I-find-that-unfulfilling type post. This is about letting the imagination run free.
