Top-Ranked Realm Doesn’t Always Mean Top-Quality Players?

Top-Ranked Realm Doesn’t Always Mean Top-Quality Players?

I said my goodbyes in that post I wrote on January 7th. I handed over my WoW account to my husband, who has the privilege to use my characters for farming purposes. My sub expires next week. It’s up to him if he wants to extend it. Since hanging up my plate gloves, I’ve been busy with classes and homework, fixing up my home, writing my novel and visiting relatives. Every now and then I would lurk on my level…

Back to My Horde Roots…and Having Fabulous Hair Again

Back to My Horde Roots…and Having Fabulous Hair Again

Once upon a time, I tweeted: “Had a weird dream that I server-transferred my DK again. Enough! No more throwing cash at #Blizzard. They already have more money than God.” Well, folks, I just handed them more money and made them richer than God and Satan combined. You: ZOMG WTF YOU TRANSFERRED AND YOU’RE HORDE AGAIN WHO CARES BUT WHY??? Why? Below are the reasons in random order. – My husband is a die-hard Horde. Since I switched to Alliance,…

10-Man Norushen: Idiots Need Not Apply

10-Man Norushen: Idiots Need Not Apply

Norushen is both a DPS and idiot check fight. (Click to see actual size) Normally, I’d rejoice over killing a new boss. But two weeks into the new patch, a great number of guilds on my server are already more than halfway into Siege of Orgrimmar, while we got stuck on Norushen until tonight. ‘Cause people were failing on the idiot check that was the purple orb, which was only one of many idiots checks in that fight. Third boss….

Throne of Thunder: 12/12 At Last

Throne of Thunder: 12/12 At Last

God, what a night! Downed Iron Quon, Twin Consorts and da man hisself, Lei Shen, within a 2 and a half hour period. Not bad for peeps who have never done the last three bosses on normal before. (Click to see actual size) Well done, Team Madness. After all the frustrations, the break-ups, the guild politics and the painful rebuilding, we can now relax and give ourselves a pat on the back. Looking forward to Patch 5.4!

First Durumu Kill

First Durumu Kill

So….after a frustrating period of cancellations and other real life shit, we finally got our group together for our first Durumu kill tonight: (Click to see actual size) *tears of joy And….yet another Mogu Rune of Fate wasted on token gold. Whoopee. But hey, at least I got tanking boots — Treads of the Blind Eye. Peeps are insistent I build a tank set and try tanking so the other Death Knight in the group can take a break from…

At the Mercy of No-Shows

At the Mercy of No-Shows

Shit always happen when Mercury is in retrograde. You can’t get everything on your list done because this is the period when many things go awry: gadgets break, things move slower, and people become dumber. If you want specifics, here’s a list from the Llewellyn Journal on the subject: WHAT TO EXPECT  – Angrier people  – Crazy drivers  – More accidents  – Miscommunication  – Quarrels  – Computer problems and breakdowns  – Delays  – More mistakes  – Slow mail  – Games…

Not a Bad First Week on My New Server

Not a Bad First Week on My New Server

I hope I’m not jinxing myself when I say that I have no regrets transferring to this realm and that I’ve accomplished more in my new home than I have in the few months I was on Whisperwind. For starters, the six of us who left Whisperwind plus four people from our Stormrage guild downed Horridon and Council of Elders with ease, something that eluded us in the recent past no thanks to some individuals who couldn’t push more than…

Hello Stormrage

Hello Stormrage

And goodbye Whisperwind! To my friends reading this post (especially Hordor), I just know you’re taken aback that I transferred again. Well, lemme explain why, and I’ll try to give you the Cliffs Notes version, but knowing myself and how I tend to ramble, this might turn into a TLDR dissertation. The guild on Whisperwind (out of respect for both my former and current GMs, I will not mention the guild name in this post) was one of the best…

Decisions, Decisions

Decisions, Decisions

When your raiding team moves to another server and your Raid Leader offers to pay for your server transfer so you could resume progression with them, what would you do? (Image from: Cybex Fitness Blog) Eh, I’ve made my decision. To be continued.

Pre-Patch 5.2 Musings

Pre-Patch 5.2 Musings

Realms are still down as of this writing, so I’ll take this time to write a quick post and look back at the last few months of Patch 5.1. My progression for this tier has been lackluster. Partly to blame was my nearly-one month absence from the game starting in late October due to personal issues, and when I came back I saw that the best raiders we had in Cataclysm had left for other servers or simply quit the…

A One-Way Ticket to New Opportunities

A One-Way Ticket to New Opportunities

I’ve made my decision: I’ll be moving to another realm — my hunter’s server, to be exact. I was promised by my significant other that he’ll take care of it soon; I just don’t know exactly when. All I know is that Blizzard/Activision is going to be $55 richer ($25 for the realm transfer, $30 for the faction change). Yes, I’m going Alliance. And it’s breaking my heart. I’ve been mainly Horde since Day One of playing World of Warcraft,…

What Would It Take…

What Would It Take…

…to make me stay? Not much. For our group to down more than two bosses a night. For our group to end the raid night with a less painful repair bill. (There was one night where the wipes were so stupid bad, we went above the allotted guild allowance of 200g each raider, and I had to fork over more than 150g extra for subsequent repairs.) For people to learn from their mistakes and not commit the same shit over…
