HoTs and DoTs: A Restoration Druid and Shadow Priest

Where Lath Became One of Those Players….

I hopped onto WoW last Friday night expecting to do some BC raids in preparation of the next patch and transmogrification.  Instead I found myself heading back into the raiding game thanks to an old raiding buddy, Dopz, who was determined to help me get some gear and up my average item level (post Friday [...]

Doing a Good Deed

Beru’s post, The Anti-Gear Score Experience, was one of the most inspiring things that I have read since I started blogging. I was listing some auctions last Saturday when I noticed that a continuation 10 man ICC group in Trade Chat was looking for players to help them kill Sindragosa and the Lich King only. Perhaps here was a group desperate to kill The Lich King before the expansion ended. Perhaps here was a group that needed my help!

I Think I Love the Dungeon Finder

I have a new reason to requeue the daily heroic using the Dungeon Finder now (but that’s the topic for another post). And two of my friends have just returned to the game and are now playing brand new level 80 characters: a Mage and a Hunter. Queuing up together seems like a good idea. But this doesn’t even feel like the same Dungeon Finder that I remember. Is it settling down? Is this what it’s going to be like forever after?

Raiding Alliances and Self Promotion

And I don’t mean “LOL lets go kill the Stormwind Auctioneers!”. I mean, when people talk about being part of a “collective” or a raiding group bigger or outside of their guild, how does it function?

Improving the Quality of Conversation

Little did I know that would turn out to be the norm, not the exception. I hate that people are too afraid or too lazy to speak up and chat during instance runs these days. I hate that people only talk when something has gone wrong, someone has died, or someone is doing something seriously wrong. I could sit hear and complain that nobody talks during my dungeon runs and do nothing to change things. Fortunately, I’m not that kind of girl.

Absolute Power

In this modern day of Dungeon Finder, Dungeon Finder, Dungeon Finder etc etc I can tell you who has all the power – tanks!

It’s Epic on the Inside

Pixii is the proud owner and wearer of Electromagnetic Gigaflux Reactivator. This has to be the craziest looking head piece in the game. It makes the Druid Tier 10 briarthorn headpiece look boring in comparison. The Electromagnetic Gigaflux Reactivator not only looks cool, it also shoots lightning out of it every 30 minutes!

Profiteering and the Value of Gear

I’ve seen the Damaged Hilt that leads to QuelDalar drop twice. The first time I was playing Cassandri with some guild members and I passed. That weapon is not an upgrade for me. I was genuinely thrilled that one of our Mages won it. I’d raided with him in the past but he hasn’t played much since Trial of the Crusader was released. And I think he could really use the upgrade. Definitely a heart-felt “grats!” moment.

Then I saw it again.

15 Things You Should Know About
the Dungeon Finder

Guess which feature of 3.3 had me the most excited? Not Icecrown Citadel (a gated raid instance launched at the start of the holiday season?), not hasted Devouring Plague and Vampiric Touch. The new cross-battlegroup Dungeon Finder matching system.

Since yesterday I’ve been queuing them pretty much non stop. Some on my Shaman, because my Priest was swallowed whole by the glitchy new dungeons in Icecrown for hours on end and couldn’t be retrieved.

A Tale of Two TOCs

I logged in on a hot lazy Saturday afternoon expecting to do a bit of leveling with Cass. For those interested we have taken the plunge and started a summer project: to leveling a Gnome Warlock and Mage duo. Little did I know that I would end up doing TOC 25 on not 1 but 2 of my level 80s!
