Dedicated Insanity and some Less-than-Epic Epics and Rares

After last week’s success (earning a Tribute to Insanity – 0 wipes in Trial of the Grand Crusader) our 10 man group decided to push the envelope even further. Last night we ditched our shiniest new epicz to see if our previous achievements in ToGC was a testament to gear… or skill.

Improving the Interface Using Addons: VuhDo (Raid Frames)

Both Cass and I have tried several Raid Frame Addons and both of us have been using VuhDo for several months. And we both love it. VuhDo looks great, gives you all the customisation of Grid, and is as easy to use as Healbot.

Cringeworthy

This is short and sweet. The tier 10 druid gear is revolting.  I could handle the bird helm, even though members in our raid now call me “beaky”, but this new head piece is loathsome…. yes loathsome. Click here to see for yourself I don’t care that the 2 and 4 piece set bonuses sound [...]

8 Rules of Raiding Etiquette and How to Survive Your Trial Period

Over the last few weeks raid attendance to our 25 man progression nights has been abysmal. Vitare, our guild, is progressing reasonably well (2/5 ToGC 25 man) even though we’re only putting in, at the most, 1 night per week doing 25s. We’re coping with our poor turn out as best we can by recruiting [...]

OMG You Got Your Ass Kicked by a Girl!

Most of the time it doesn’t really cross my mind that I’m a girl gamer. I’m just another person in my guild and in my raid. I think about our progression, and I worry about standing in the fire just like any other raider. No different than anyone else, right?

Raiding 10s vs 25s

During our 10 man last week the conversation came up:
What do people prefer? 25 mans or 10 mans?

Bloodlust Lag, The Guild Killer

On Sunday night while Vitare was bashing their heads against Heroic Northern Beasts, we got some pretty shocking news. One of the top Alliance guilds on the server was disbanding. These were the players chasing the leading Alliance guild for fastest progression on the realm.

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.

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 [...]

Girls Have a Sense of Humor Too!

I had an epiphany last night after we finished Ulduar (and scored Bunkiie our holy pally the guild’s first legendary mace!). The guys in my guild just don’t get my sense of humour OR they don’t think I have a sense of humour… I’m not sure which one it is but both are equally /sigh worthy.
