Stop the Hate

Stop the Hate

I haven’t updated my website in a while, mainly because of real life matters that nearly brought me to my knees. And to those who took “brought me to my knees” literally, please take your mind out of the gutter. I merely meant that my recent experiences were harrowing. Thankfully, my prayers were answered this week and I can breathe a sigh of relief. I can finally move on and plan my life, but that’s for another post, where I…

Throne of Thunderf*ck and How I Got My Karmic Comeuppance

Throne of Thunderf*ck and How I Got My Karmic Comeuppance

I remember the early days of LFR-Dragon Soul. Those were clueless and chaotic times when even trash pulls spelled instant death, and people cussed each other in ways that would make a sailor blush. Blizzard must have felt our trauma back then because in MoP, they gave us a kinder, gentler LFR in Tier 14 where most mechanics could be ignored by 25 people and you could earn Valor Points without blowing a gasket, literally or figuratively. But with the…

LFR: Last Stand of the Zandalari

LFR: Last Stand of the Zandalari

It’s been a rough few days in real life, so I was really looking forward to the new LFR to help me unwind and get my mojo back. Past LFRs always saw me apprehensive on their release days, since you could never be sure about the sort of players you’d end up getting grouped with. But not this time. At least 20 of us from the guild grouped up to do Last Stand of the Zandalari in Throne of Thunder,…

Patch 5.1: Landfall

Patch 5.1: Landfall

Patch 5.1: Landfall hit virtual land yesterday! One of the things I’m glad about this patch is that the charms were converted into currency, freeing up some bag space for everybody: The second is that I logged in to 20 points of cheevos plus a new kite mount! (Click to see actual size) Then it was off to do the new quests that took me to Krasarang Wilds. I was so excited to see what great things were in store…

Mogu’shan Vaults – LFR: Less Agony, More Ecstasy

Mogu’shan Vaults – LFR: Less Agony, More Ecstasy

The first half of Mogu’shan Vaults on Raid Finder went live today. For the last few days, I was fretting over not meeting the minimum iLevel of 460 to queue for LFR. I was still seven points shy of the mark, tanks kept rolling on and winning my DPS gear in random heroics, and Justice Points gear were basically useless. But a last-minute invite to do Sha of Anger in Kun-Lai summit sealed the deal for me. The Sha dropped…

Blizzard Needs to Fix Raid Finder Loot System

Blizzard Needs to Fix Raid Finder Loot System

I did Dragon Soul – Raid Finder recently on another Death Knight (yes, I really love that class!) and won two helm tokens. Before I could offer the second token for a round of rolling, I got called every name in the book (“douchebag” being the most popular one). Now how does winning two helm tokens due to a flaw in Raid Finder’s loot system make me a douchebag? HOWEVER, I do understand why the other players were upset. The…
