Lath’s VuhDo Layout

I’ve been asked by a few people what my layout settings are for VuhDo. I thought it would be easier to cover the topic as one single blog post with screen shots rather than by reply to each individual question posed by in game whispers, comments, twitter and email.

Fun with VuhDo: The Battleground Preparation Game!

With VuhDo, if they’re in my raid and in range, I can see their guild rank. That includes Battlegrounds. Yes, that’s right. This is now my favourite Battleground preparation game. While you’re buffing, I’m scrolling over my frames.

Pilgrim’s Bounty: Coolest Buff Ever

I had this cast on me by a random player outside Stormwind and I loved it so much I refused to do anything that could make me change forms and lose the buff. Yes you can kill turkeys as a turkey… crazy I know!

World of Warcraft 5 Years In:
Thank God they Fixed…

We, Lath and Cass, suggested this week’s shared topic on Blog Azeroth: Blizzard have changed and improved many things within World of Wacraft between Vanilla, BC and Wrath. Which change made a fundamental difference to your gaming experience? We decided to have a little fun and got our guildies involved. After all, many of them [...]

Why is Hardcore Such a Dirty Word?

The term “hardcore” has become a dirty word. No one wants to be labeled as a hard core player; in fact everyone will do what they can to twist the meaning of casual just to make sure that they seem to fit into this category and no one could ever accuse them of being a hardcore player. Forgive me if I stop to roll my eyes.

The DoTs in HoTs & DoTs

A Q&A for DPS (unnamed) was started by Death Goddess. I thought it was a great idea and it was very sensible of Death Goddess to let the temperamental healers and tanks have their moment in the spotlight first. I refuse to subscribe to a blog written by a Death Knight so I had no idea that this was actually started a couple weeks back.

What is the name, class, and spec of your primary dps? Cassandri, Priest, Shadow.

Battleground Independence

I watch as a single Paladin or Druid takes to the road picking off an unsuspecting passerby. I’ve started to call them Lone Rangers. They can operate independently. They can lead an attack. I can only follow.

The New Hybrid: Resto/Resto

My primary spec? Restoration. My secondary spec? Restoration.
The best part about having these two Restoration builds is that I am using both my specs, often swapping mid-raid, and my 1000g has definitely paid itself off. It also makes me a little sad. I never intended to be a tree when I rolled this Druid. I leveled Lath as Moonkin and loved it every minute of it until I realised at level 70 that raiding guilds wanted Resto Druids, not Balance Druids.

Spinning Emblems into Gold

You can convert your Emblems of Conquest into epic gems. You’ll need to exchange your Emblem of Conquest for an Emblem of Valor and then exchange those for Emblems of Heroism. The exchange rate is always 1:1 so if you have 100 Emblems of Conquest to spend, you actually have 100 Emblems of Heroism to spend.
