My Xmas Present to Me

Sorry for the dead air folks.. it is the season to be /silly and the season certainly has been silly.

I’m living in my new house, but there is still so much to do… I still haven’t moved everything from my old house and when I do the spare room (photo later) will be floor to ceiling, wall to wall boxes.

Still it’s my patch of dirt, mine to break and fix to my hearts content.  I have already had the midnight wanders through the backyard planning out Odin’s cubby, complete with secret passages.

I have also been playing a fair bit, and have a pile of stuff to write about.. they might end up as mammoth as the old Gnomeaggedon weekend that was posts.. screenshots, rants and yes, the return of Gnomeaggedon.

As it is New years Eve, and I have a pile of things to do, I am going to scamper now, but here are some shots of Castle Gnomeaggedon. (more…)

Gnomeaggedon notices parcel under tree…. mmmm where did that come from?

Whoooo Hooo… it’s my Secret Santa!

I can’t wait to unwrap this and….. Ohhh Noes…. that’s what happens when a Plate wearing Paladin goes Cloth Destructo-Mage!

hehehhehe… I love it….

I love the post, and I love the end result!

Thank you Ophie the Bossy Pally, but maybe not a Mage!

This is the best Secret Santa I could have wished for…

Without further ado…


For Christmas, All I Want is to be a Gnome Mage, a Guest Post by Ophie the Bossy Pally

When I found out I was going to be writing a little something for Gnomeaggedon for Christmas, I was super thrilled! I’ve always wanted to slip into the mind of a fire ball casting, face melting, dream destroying, and absolutely huggable little gnome. The master himself was away, dropping off gifts for his friends and attending Jong and Megan’s crazy parties, so I had to go to my alt bin to find a mage capable of providing such an experience. I found her in Ironforge, nurturing her dreams of becoming the bestest of all firey mages.

“Come little mage!” I told her. “Let us be epic and run heroics!”

Slipping into the mind of my little bundle of deadly power, I brought her to Icecrown Citadel. We had to go around the back to find what we were looking for. Forge of Souls, it is called. I was excited. As a paladin, I’ve never had more than 2 or 3 spells before! I wasn’t sure of which buttons to press, so I tried them all. I took a screenshot of my efforts.

Ok, maybe the learning curve is a bit too steep for me. Maybe PvE just isn’t my thing. After all, I’m all about the face melting. PvP is where it’s at. Besides, with my amazing timing skills on my side, it’s almost time for Wintergrasp! You silly hordies better look out! I’m on my way!


Well, my adventures in PvP can be summed in one picture.

Alright, I’ll admit defeat. This maging thing is tougher than I bargained for. You can’t just mind control a mage and expect to insta-win without some skill. I still have some time left, though, so I might as well put her to good use and run some dailies.

I give up. From now on, I’ll leave face melting to the masters. I’ll have my plate and my shield back, please. But…um…now I sort of feel bad for all the times I’ve been impatient about my food. Or been too pushy about a port. The good mages make it look so easy, but what I’ve learned from my afternoon as a wannabe deadly killer is that those good mages are worthy of quite a bit of respect.

I raise my helm to Gnome and to all the mages out there who, unlike me, spend more time alive than dead.

Happy holidays to Gnomeaggedon and to all Armaggedon’s Coming readers!

With /hugs, Ophie the pally-not-mage.


How awesome was that!

Just a couple of minor points of clarification…

I was attending Jong’s and Megan’s crazy panties… not parties 😉

“I raise my helm to Gnome and to all the mages out there who, unlike me, spend more time alive than dead.”

Well, I wont speak for the rest of them, but I spend a lot of my time dead…. it’s just a case of learning to live with it.  I remember the one and only Pally I rolled got shelved at level 10 because it didn’t die… where’s the fun in that?

For an idea of the Miss Saresa’s Secret Santa posts that are yet to come, checkout the thread at Blog Azeroth.

Better yet, to get an idea of what has already been written, check out the post at Twisted Nether!

The Joke’s on Me!


  • I could live without WoW for 5 days…
  • I could live without a fridge for 5 days…
  • But I was really struggling without my Blog for 5 days!

So I got to thank that Horde-Loving Gnome-Rolling Pie for coming to the rescue and showing us his ingredient list for his forthcoming Gnome Pie and Squidly Souffle… not to mention increasing the membership of Armaggedon’s Coming.

The Joke’s on Me!

Onto the meat and potatoes of the post.

Every now and then I get a little silly, not too often you understand, most of my posts are Srs Gnome Bzn, but once in the while I take the queue from the sillier of our blogging community and write a post that is intended to be silly from the moment the post title is born.

It’s one of those throw away posts, you expect to get a few hits on, that you expect to lose thousands of subscribers over (if you have them, otherwise the subscription list stays and a nice constant 1.. yes I subscribe… what’s wrong with that? If I was running for President of Azeroth I’d vote for myself too!). Yet somehow it is my most popular non-guide post – by a long stretch!

So I write this April Fools joke post and fill it with the most absurd things I can think of, things that will NEVER EVER come true unless it’s a Blizzard April fools joke (more…)

Why, you’ve seen him before…only he was crowded by the Gnome mage and that other gnome…girl.

Does my hair look good?

But wait…that is not the only gnome invading.. (more…)

My Internet carrier didn’t install today as promised.

Unlike every other deliver company etc that gives a 5 hour arrival window, Optus doesn’t bother to call when they are 1/2 an hour away.

No they call when they are at your front door. Luckily they are my mobile phone carrier with great phone and 3G coverage in the metropolitan area… Unless you need to make or receive a call, or use 3G.

Ohh well. No net for another 2 days.

So what do I do?

I guess I’ll just point you to a great post, one I think would have to be Sideshow & Syrana’s best post of the year.

The Smell of Smoking Leather

It’s a guest post by an admirer of theirs.. (more…)

Reindeer Droppings

I mentioned the other day that Gnomeaggedon’s Reindeer had been leaving it’s mark around the WoW Blogsphere… so here’s an update…

Frost is the New Black

What Frost Means To Me… [by Gnomer!]

Pink Pigtail Inn

This Rounds on Me!


A Guest Post: Gnomeaggedon’s “I Smell Xmas Panties”

For the Horde

O Hai Thrall

That’s it for now.

Until I get moved into the new place I will be AFB (Away from Blog), but all being well I will be back Monday my time…

Ohh final note, thanks to those that have let me share my thoughts on their blog.

Thanks also to Krizzlybear and Sylus for doing guest posts here at the home of the Gnome.

If I don’t get to you before, Merry Christmas & a Happy New Year (with no offense intended to others of other faiths, but this is the season to be Santa),

Gnomer and Out, Squidly and Stout!

Yes folks, I’ve taken over. Sylus here from 4theHorde. One thing’s for sure, the crazies here at Armaggedon’s Coming must have really lost it! They let ME guest post???? Seriously??? ME?!?! I mean come on, he had to know what I’m capable of. I DO PLAY HORDE AFTER ALL! GASP!!!! Okay, seriously though. I know I’ve always been Hordecore and all, but this little guy’s befriended the rowdy crowd I roll with. To be quite honest, I’m not sure what he see’s in us anyway! Seriously, I mean we barely keep our own blog up to date, half of us take breaks that last months at a time, and then there’s the whole “real life” thing that we deal with so much. Seriously, half of you don’t even have a clue who I am, yet alone all of the others at 4theHorde. But, none the less, here I am! I guess that means he likes me? In a non gay orc/gnome way I guess. Totally platonic, of course.

Now, you may be asking yourself, “Gnome, what the crap is this Hordie doing on your blog???” (more…)

I bet that post title gets a few GoogledGnome hits…

Hell, I bet my Australian readers wont be able to view this post!

Wont be long before I’m not even allowed to write it…

Anyway, let me put your mind at ease.

This isn’t about that kind of Cross-Dressing (although admit it, who doesn’t like a nice floral summer frock?)

This is about Cross Dressing in WoW!

You with me yet?

Gnomeaggedon has been a cross-dresser from the day he was rolled… (more…)

  • The T10 tokens.
  • The Arena season gear

At least make the emblem gear all BoA. You main has a hundred emblems rotting in the bank? Buy your alts some new threads. (more…)

OK, let me start on the bright side…

Arioch (bless her soul) brought this little number to my attention in the comments of Magic Strudel’s post (why did you roll a Mage?). I wonder if Megan can top a pro like Nyhm?

There was a video ^^ there if it is blocked by the blog nazis… worth a look… trust me!

OK, so down to business…

Like he said, but different

Krizzlybear makes an excellent case for the new LFG… no, not over thereOver here!

But.. I think that the New LFG is NGE! (more…)
