My Pal, My Theme Song

What is Gnomeaggedon’s Theme Song?


Well, not so much the words, although “Your my only friend, and you don’t even like me” is probably quite pertinent to most WoW friendships.

No, it’s more about the feeling that the music invokes in me.

The initial strumming/picking of the guitar, feels like the tank pulling and starting to build threat, while I squirm with impatience, then throw the first few scorches out building up for the drums…

You know you are going to pull aggro any seconds now, but you just can’t stop

Then it’s all out chaos, fireballs flying, fireballs-to-the-wall action. (more…)

Aint gunna happen…

Breana raises this weeks BA Shared topic:

Recently, in BA chat, I spoke about my guild progress and how we killed Mags the week before. Then the conversation turned to getting the “Champion of the Naruu” title. Which got me thinking, I actually can do that quest and get that title! Something I thought I would never see, let alone attain, was now an achievable goal.

What about you? Think back.

What content or goals did you think you would never see, and what have you done? What has surprised you the most? Where do you see yourself in 6 months, after the launch of Lich?

Well I never thought I was going to play WoW, but I will get to that. (more…)

Hi folks, it’s that time again… Blog Azeroth topic of the week “What you need to know about [insert class here], in my case, I will be telling you about things from the perspective of my little Fire Mage.

Crowd Control.

As a fire mage I only have a few tricks up my overly generous sleeves.

Frost Nova – I can trap quite a few mobs for 8 seconds.

Blasts enemies near the caster for 99 to 111 Frost damage and freezes them in place for up to 8 sec. Damage caused may interrupt the effect.

  • 1st thing to note, 8 seconds isn’t a hell of a long time, and I have probably pissed a few of them off as well.
  • 2nd thing, it is likely to break, releasing all the mobs if you get a lucky crit.
  • If I frost nova in the vicinity of shackles etc, I will break them… sorry we are working towards the same end, I am just trying to keep the healers alive for another 8 seconds… please reshackle, sheep etc.
  • Generally I am only dropping this to protect someone, probably the healers so:
  1. Healers, move away from the mobs melee attacks if they are still hitting you, they wont follow.. well immediately anyway.
  2. Everyone else, either focus on the original target, or give the tank, shacklers etc a chance to get their mob(s) back under control (more…)

Why do We (me) WoW?

BA topic de jour, a great question for many reasons and worth taking a step back and considering – it may keep you sane….

Why I play at all…

Back when I was young, it was practically socially acceptable (here in Oz anyway) to (binge) drink and drive – even if not legally acceptable.

Times have changed and “all my friends are getting married, yeah they’re all growing old. They all staying home on the weekends, they’re all doing what their told….(more…)

10 WoW Memories

My memory is like a sieve, it is like… damn I can’t remember what I was going to write… Just call me Goldfish the Gnome.

So I have been thinking about the BA topic on Top 10 WoW memories, as most of the community has written about over the last couple of weeks.  I have really been struggling to think of them, so these may not be my top 10, just something (anything) I can remember, in no particular order… (more…)
