Kor’kron Dark Shaman Down

Kor’kron Dark Shaman Down

Got my first shaman kill tonight! No gear for my class/spec dropped and I was out of Warforged Seals, so no bonus roll for me. Note to self: save coins for latter bosses next time and don’t waste them again in LFR.

Tears of Joy: Six Bosses Down and Two New Pieces of Gear

Tears of Joy: Six Bosses Down and Two New Pieces of Gear

To be honest, after Monday night’s trial raid, I didn’t expect to get invited to my guild’s normal 10-man run tonight. I didn’t hear from any of the officers so I assumed I made it to bench status. But this afternoon I was pleasantly surprised to see an invite on the calendar to join them in a fresh Siege of Orgrimmar run. Note that before I transferred to my new server, I was only 3/14 in SoO. I joined tonight’s…

Congratulating Method: Fangirl Alert

Congratulating Method: Fangirl Alert

I was in a trial raid with my new guild in Siege of Orgrimmar tonight and after we killed General Nazgrim, this popped up on Twitter: ZOMG Sco of <Method> favorited my tweet congratulating him and his guild on their world first 25-man Heroic Garrosh kill! It’s like…it’s like the Pope smiling back at me, only better! I’m saving that screenshot for posterity before he un-favorites it! LOL.

Tonight’s Raid: Like Toilet Paper

Tonight’s Raid: Like Toilet Paper

Let’s see, how to describe tonight’s attempt at Spirit Kings in 10-man NORMAL Mogu’shan Vaults, a boss fight that, by now, everyone and his grandmother – save for certain individuals in my raid group – have mastered? It was, to put it charmingly, like one-ply toilet paper. It took so many attempts, so many wipes. All because of one or two people dying to Qiang the Merciless’ Annihilate at the start of the fight. And you know what happens when…

Back in The Swing of Things: Some New Gear At Last!

Back in The Swing of Things: Some New Gear At Last!

I had a horrible day today. I won’t go into the details, but suffice to say it was the shitty icing on an already bad cake. Good thing my knight in shining armor was there to hand me Kleenex for my tears and snot (well, not literally, but it’s nice to know there’s someone who deeply cares for me). And good thing I had a raid tonight to keep my mind off the negativity. It was my first raid with…

Madness of Deathwing: Destroyer’s End!

Madness of Deathwing: Destroyer’s End!

Finally, after one too many raid cancellations – including a near-cancellation tonight no thanks to the storm – and some guild issues too delicate to mention in this post – we finally downed Deathwing! (Click to see actual size) And what an ending it was, with me and another shammy the sole survivors of the fight. Well, actually he died and used self-rez so during the last few seconds I think I was the only one duking it out with…

Meet My New Toy

Meet My New Toy

I won Experimental Specimen Slicer in our all-guild Dragon Soul raid. It’s such a gorgeous weapon, I’m tempted to go back to Unholy! Now what to do with Gurthalak, Voice of the Deeps which is just gathering dust in my Void Storage. To DE or not to DE, that is the question.

When Real Life Loses to WoW

When Real Life Loses to WoW

So ladies, did your WoW-playing significant others give you the requisite cards and flowers (either real or virtual) and take you out to dinner on Valentine’s Day? No? Screw them! Sigh. How awful to think that Real Life commitments are losing to WoW, just like in this pic: (Image from Cracked.com)

An Angry Prayer

An Angry Prayer

Dear God, Please give me back Snowcow and Takako. I miss both of them very much. Snowy’s heals rocked and Takako was an awesome raid leader. I miss my core group and the synergy, discipline and focus we had. Please make them come back ASAP. Amen. Yeah yeah, I know we’re no Ensidia or Blood Legion or Catalyst. But we loved what we were doing and we had fun learning, falling and dusting off the dirt together. I remember how…

Need to Vent

Need to Vent

After getting abused repeatedly by Sindragosa tonight, I think I’ve earned the right to bitch. This is my website after all so I’ll say damn well anything I want. You know who you are: STOP F*CKING ICE BLOCKING THE RAID! The Sindragosa fight is NOT a DPS race. Disable your damn Recount and focus on getting the mechanics right! You get the Frost Beacon, you run away from everybody, plain and simple!!! /end rant
