Where Are All The Warlocks?

If you are a regular reader you may have noticed that my achievements have recently been updated and show that I have been raiding again. I lasted on casual for a total of 14 weeks, and now that I can stay awake past 9pm and have more energy (sadly 18 weeks and still throwing up [...]

A Belated 1 Year Blogiversay Post

To all the readers, commenters and fellow bloggers who have welcomed us into the community, thank you the last year has been a blast. We hope that the next 12 months will bring us as much lively input, debate and commentary as the last year has.

Going Casual & Other Stuff

Well it’s been awhile, over a month in fact since I last posted. It’s strange the longer it goes without writing, the harder it has been to start again. I haven’t quit playing or anything though RL has been incredibly demanding taking up all my time of late and I’m sorry in advance that this [...]

Good News for Trees of Life

OK it creeps me out a teeny bit when I write a post about how I personally envision things changing… and then I read a short paragraph from Blizzard that sounds eerily familiar!

The Church of Lathology

I’m pleased to report that the morale in my guild has skyrocketed over the last couple of weeks.  After rebuilding our raid team at the beginning of the year we now have a strong group that has been playing together long enough to understand each others strengths and weaknesses.  So while our progression took a [...]

Goodbye Hots & Dots

After nearly a year of blogging for Hots & Dots, Cass and I have made the difficult decision to close this blog. You may have noticed that over the past month we’ve been blogging less and less about Icecrown Citadel, Cassandri and Lathere and have instead been providing posts on dungeon leveling, new character gearing and more casual events.

Gearing Up Your Sapling

I’ve found myself starting to focus on how to best gear up Restori – my fresh level 80 Restoration Druid – without raiding so that when I’ve got the spare time in the future I’ll be able to PUG the occasional raid for pure fun.
