I say a little prayer to the holiest of holies, the Bear amongst men

Oh Dear Bear, what 5 buttons should I press when I am in Feral forms.

I’m a Boomkin (and a bad one at that)

Or maybe I’m a tree (and a bad one at that Continue Reading »

… a well geared AFK/Bot.

Yeah, this is kind of another post where I link back to an old post like I don’t care about the color of your clothes, shake my head lolwut heirlooms in your Battleground? and wonder when people will ever learn.

I had a few experiences over the weekend that have brought my philosophy of gear being less relevant than attitude to the fore.

Like Raiding in Blues

There was a time, BG – Before Gevlon, where the concept of raiding, seriously, in less than the top of the line purples was scoffed at. “We all knew”, despite protestations to the contrary that you had to have the best of the best to even be eligible to apply for a bench seat on a raiding guild, let alone raid.

You WILL leave your fun on hold until you have suffered on the sidelines for an appropriate amount of time. No you may not play with your friends until you match their ever escalating gear score!

40% down

Yet in BGs, people just shrug at AFKs and Bots in BGs… Yeah the report them AFK, but we have gotten to the point were we expect 10-20% of a PuG BG team to be AFK Continue Reading »

Priesting is not my thing.

I’ve rolled a couple, I know a couple, but they just aren’t my thing.

But I’ve learned a few things from them.. some of them friendly, some of them not so friendly, all of them teachers in some way.

I think one of the most underused spells in a Priest’s arsenal is Mind Control, and I don’t mean the Beware Mind Control in the wrong hands kind of mind control, but it will still make you do silly things.

Here are some examples…

Alterac Valley & Isle of Conquest

Wipe inducing

I enjoy frustrating the Horde when they are preparing to engage Van, but funnily enough it’s not easy as a Mage to get Van to come to my rescue. I have only one or two options.. taunt a Hordie far enough in the room for Van to stop cleaning his nails, or pop Mirror Images… For some reason, while the Images inherit my aggro, Van inherits theirs and he will charge to attack their enemies. I guess if I had a DK, I could pull them one by one to have a chat with Van, but it’s priests that have the real power to absolve the sins (through death) of the Horde Continue Reading »

I’ve said it before, The Flag is Noob Bait!

But maybe I need to be more clear…

Eye of the Storm is NOT Warsong Gulch.

EotS is NOT a game that revolves around flags.

Yes the flag can be a circuit breaker when you can only get and maintain 2 nodes, but it’s the nodes that count, it’s bodies on node that count.

Yes you can win a game with only two bases and a flag, the issue is…

Who owns the flag?

I can’t count how many EotS I have been in where both sides inch up by flag caps, the last team to cap being the winner.

The bigger the investment, the bigger the crash

The problem is, the more vital the flag is, the more troops you have to commit from your nodes, which in turn means your nodes are now too lightly defended Continue Reading »

A frustrating Battle for Gilneas.

The mass CC from the Horde was insane.

It wasn’t CC you would find on a toolbar, it was mental CC.

Although, maybe the majority of my teammates had the A.I. of a trash mob.

The primary Horde CC consisted of 1 Pally healer, and 1 Prot warrior.

Wherever they were you would find a collection of 5 alliance players, or trash mobs as I like to think of them.

  • Warrior ~100% health
  • Pally ~ 100% health
  • Trash mobs – 100% focused on the Warrior while he mowed them down.

I have previously shared Naysa’s and Phlanker’s opinion on rogues.

While as a general rule I treat rogues like mosquitoes, slap randomly at the air and they pop their Cloak of Noob, there are times when I find myself reduced to inarticulate Rogue Rage myself.

I had two of those moments over the weekend in quick succession. In fact it was the proximity of the battles and the juxtaposition of their performance that has me still raging days later.

Act I

We enter Arathi Basin to find our team stacked with rogues… Seven of them, 7!

I’m not above using an unfair advantage and 7 rogues in AB is an unfair advantage.

The gates open, the rogues disappear, as they do, they are stealth after all Continue Reading »


Hey Gnome, why are you hidden down there?
