HoTs and DoTs: A Restoration Druid and Shadow Priest

Getting Out of the Habit was Easier than Getting Back In

How time as flown by since I last (a) logged into World of Warcraft and (b) logged onto Hots and Dots.

Keeping My Head Above Water

My home town, Brisbane, Australia is flooded. World of Warcraft takes a back seat.

Weak as a Kitten
and Questing in Mount Hyjal

I wanted to savor the new parts to the story as I leveled from 80 to 85. And I also really like to run dungeons – almost as a mental brake from reading questing – which probably explains how I can be level 83 and only now just completing the first questing zone: Mount Hyjal.

Mastering the Shadow Priest
Before 85: DoTs and Haste

In this post I’m going to try and break you of six years of conditioning and teach you to recast your damage over time spells early.

Must Have… Xeppe
(and about DeZire and Vitare)

If you haven’t been reading An Ordinary Priest you might not know it but Xeppe has turned from a white bar into a dark blue one: these days she’s playing a Restoration Shaman. And it just so happens that my guild, Vitare, is being very open-minded about our roster for Cataclysm. And there’s definitely room for a Restoration Shaman.

Back to TK, SSC and Mount Hyjal

I had the good fortune to log in late on Saturday night and find about 15 members of my guild tagged by the location Tempest Keep. I jumped right in expecting the group to quickly kill Kael’thas Sunstrider and disband for the night.

Boy, was I wrong!

Where Were You?

How will you cope with the loss and destruction of everything you hold dear? The answer is that you don’t have to. Bring your friends and family to one of our gatherings and learn how you can survive the apocalypse together, with us.

Vampiric Embrace: Burning Crusade
to Cataclysm

Natarumah is worried about our DPS nerfs, and to a certain extent I share that concern. But I’m more disturbed by weakening of Vampiric Embrace. I can’t help but ask myself: what are we without Vampiric Embrace?

In Disguise

I don’t know why but I hadn’t thought much about Deathwing taking on a human disguise during the Cataclysm expansion. I think I just pictured him as a Black dragony version of Sindragosa, or Malygos even, who would fly down from wherever to be killed when we were good and ready.

Trivia Anyone?

Post Patch 4.0 my thoughts on the current state of World of Warcraft is something of a mess – kind of like the state of my add ons. So instead I thought I’d cast my attention to a meta game I like to play: WoW trivia!
