Virtuosos

You may have heard this fact quoted in serious discussion about World of Warcraft: According to Malcolm Gladwell, 10 000 hours spent doing an activity (before the age of 21) is all that is required to become a “virtuoso”:

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 [...]

Flashback and the Items You Remember

Considering just how important weapons are to your DPS and, even measuring them against the size of your character in terms of pixels, they’re pretty god damn important as far as gear slots go.

So surely I would remember off by heart the “glory days” of my early raiding and my hard sought after weapons? Nope.

Shadow Lessons from the Professor

Well the first eight or nine Heroic modes in Icecrown Citadel go down pretty easy. I’m sure the Big Crits guild will get Lady Deathwhisper next without too much trouble. But then they’re probably going to hit their heads against the wall also known as: Heroic Professor Putricide.

Choreography and Hard Modes

So Tuesday nights and Friday nights I tend not to think much about gaming. Well, that was until the latest routine was released and I found myself surrounded by 20 people awkwardly imitating the male Human World of Warcraft dance.

Raid Leading and Cues

Cassandri as Raid Leader? I don’t think I could do it. But knowing that people in my guild think I could do it makes me wonder if I should push myself a bit harder, expand my boundaries.
