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…

Goodbye to Last Tier’s Piece

Goodbye to Last Tier’s Piece

The RNG gods were kind to me tonight! I rolled a 96 on the Warforged version of the neckpiece off Malkorok and got a ring from my bonus roll on Siegecrafter Blackfuse, allowing me to get rid of Band of the Scaled Tyrant from Throne of Thunder — the last of the previous tier’s acquisitions. iLevel is now 564!

Siege of Orgrimmar: 12/14

Siege of Orgrimmar: 12/14

I take back what I said in my previous post and no longer despise the conveyor belt in the Siegecrafter Blackfuse fight. Last night, I finally got the hang of it without dying to those blasted curtains of fire or derping on my jumps. We downed the S.O.B.! And what’s even better was that RNG was so kind to me on my coin rolls, yielding me Xifeng, Longblade of the Titanic Guardian and Siegecrafter’s Forge Hammer! (Click to see actual…

Siege of Orgrimmar: 11/14

Siege of Orgrimmar: 11/14

Here’s a quick update on my progression within the last week: We finally got Spoils of Pandaria and Thok the Bloodthirsty down. (Click to see actual size) Such an awkward kill shot with Thok’s head missing. Oh well. I got my 2-piece set and my second Warforged item, Evil Eye of Galakras. I have the advantage of being the only strength melee in the team, so there’s no real competition for plate DPS gear. However, I lament the fact that…

Siege of Orgrimmar: Malkorok Down 9/14

Siege of Orgrimmar: Malkorok Down 9/14

Last night’s raid was a pretty good one for the following reasons: successfully killed General Nazgrim again, got our first Malkorok kill… (Click to see actual size) …I automatically won Malkorok’s Tainted Dog Tags that dropped off said boss, being the only strength melee DPS in the group, AND I got promoted to Core Raider. 🙂

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…

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….

Another Pre-Patch 5.4 Post: What Would Make Me Stay for the Next Expansion

Another Pre-Patch 5.4 Post: What Would Make Me Stay for the Next Expansion

You’d think watching this video would make every WoW player super excited for tomorrow. Am I excited? Yes I am. But not super excited, and here’s why: I’m getting tired. Tired of what you might ask. Is it the ‘meh’ lore? The dailies? The soul-sucking community? All of them plus some? Let’s get one thing out of the way: I’m not so hung up on lore or its bastardization by Blizzard. I frankly don’t care if the Blizz team tweaks…

Upcoming Shinies: Siege of Orgrimmar and Season 14 Weapons

Upcoming Shinies: Siege of Orgrimmar and Season 14 Weapons

Hey folks, check out the new weapon models for Patch 5.4. Visit the Wowhead page here. Here are a few of my favorite designs: Haromm’s Frozen Crescent. Very nice weapon for tanks. Too bad my prot pally is only level 85. Xal’atoh, Desecrated Image of Gorehowl. Gotta love dem blinking eyes. So cheesy and ‘Evil Dead’-ish. Kil’ruk’s Furious Blade. Because Barney purple is power! (Images from Wowhead) Hmm, no two-handed swords? Personally, I prefer 2h-swords to axes and maces. Looking…
