What will you do with Gnomeregan?

The time is here.

Jong reports from the front line (which may well be his balcony with an empty bottle of JD):

supaflyretpally @Gnomeaggedon Operation Gnomeaggedon is a go. Jong and the 2nd Battalion Elite Paladin Rangers are boarding C-130 at 1400 hours.

Gnomeaggedon @supaflyretpally Go get them Troggs and teach them 60’s music is dead! Ohhh wrong world… yeah clean up Gnomeregan and get me a good room!

supaflyretpally @Gnomeaggedon The Operation is proceeding with 93% efficiency. I got run over by mechanotank.

Gnomeaggedon @supaflyretpally typical that you would get an efficiency rating from Gnomes! Ignore the Mechanotanks, the biotanks you need to be afraid of

Which leaves me wondering whether his intention is to retake Gnomeregan or Gnomeaggedon. And if it’s me he’s retaking, where is he retaking me too? I’m hoping it’s that island of his with Megan taking the tops off icy cold Victoria Bitter stubbies…

What? A Gnome can dream can’t he?

What’s your dream of Gnomeregan?

We can assume that once the Trolls retake their homeland it will be 24/7 full moon parties all fueled by Ghost Mushrooms and Felweed.. (more…)

Shaman can’t heal

and other nonsense.

Squidly continues to shame Gnomeaggedon. Well, Gnomeaggedon is doing fine, beyond shaming himself.

Gnomeaggedon receives [Muradin’s Spyglass].

Gnomeaggedon: Mmm I don’t need this, anyone want it?

2 hours pass

Gnomeaggedon: #%*# #%*# #%*#!!! damn that hourglass is now my top upgrade!

Tip: The optimize upgrades list in RAWR is based on current gear, so a single different piece of gear (say picking up your fourth T10 piece) can change the whole upgrade landscape.

Don’t be Gnome, regenerate your upgrade list before handing out BiS items to Offspec rolls!

Kashinboner is a great bloke.

Pretty much a full stop right there, but anyway, Kashinboner is a reader that dropped me an ingame whisper in WG a while back. Unlike most readers he keeps in regular contact, recently dragging me into a battleground after a night of constant loses to have his good luck Gnome present for a nice AB win. He has regularly asked if Squidly wanted to come to ICC, which until recently was out of the question gear wise.

We were chatting the other night as we each jumped in a ICC25 pug (separate pugs, just a coincidence).

My pug was struggling to to grab healers and had their heart set on a Tree.

Meanwhile the Raid Leader was constantly spamming raid chat telling us if we couldn’t stay in the raid till 2am, we should drop group now. It was about 10pm so that made some sense to me I guess.

Of course I wonder whether he was spending more time warning us about 2am than hunting for the missing players.

Ohhh advertising a raid that is filling fast when there are only 7 people in the raid and it takes over 30 minutes to fill… Isn’t filling fast.

The raid leader was doing a count back of the healers in the raid but missed me in his talley. Vein the sort of guy I am, I pointed out his omission.

Squidly: you also have Shaman heals.

RL: No offense, bit I don’t consider Shaman to be effective heals. A Tree is significantly better, as are Paladins and priests.

Finally, finally, we got not one but two Tree healers. All good by me… Less work for the lowest common denominator in healers (more…)
