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 (more…)

96% Spam, 4% Ham

or alternatively…

It’s my party and I’ll write if I want to…

So apparently these days it’s inappropriate to celebrate achievements

No Battlemaster!

Don’t celebrate Battlemaster because a lot of people don’t PvP, which is unfair on them and might discourage them from entering the Battlegrounds. Hell, even those that do love Battlegrounds might get discouraged when you provide them with a role model and encouragement (more…)

No Cataclysm for me

I guess by now many of you are in a Cataclysm frenzy.

I wish I could say the same… unfortunately, the store where I pre-purchased my copy closes at 6pm… and it wasn’t allowed to be released until 7pm.

I might have hung around a couple of hours after work to pick it up… but no point waiting outside their door all night.

Of course some shops were releasing it earlier… but my shop was following the rules.

Stupid rules.

Enjoy the crush folks!

Gnomer and Out!

I guess I will just download the Cataclysm client, then whack my rego code in tomorrow…  Two letters away from Cataclysm …thanks for the tip Aurdon! At least that way I wont spend a couple of hours staring at a download screen.

I’m Sorry

First Australians vodcasts from SBS

Right, let me state right up front this isn’t a WoW post, it’s a post about hatred and my hatred of people that are depicted in this series that were in the best cases misguided to the point of hatred, but in the worst were hatred incarnate.

If you thought Australia’s history was about convicts, the poor deported, you are wrong. the history is about the disposed.

To think that I was proud that my great-grandmother went and marked out a selection for my grandfather.

I know the truth now.

It wasn’t his land.

When I was in South Africa I visited the Apartheid Museum and was disgusted, yet, I had no understanding of the atrocities committed in my “own” land (more…)

It’s Optional

We know RealID is here to stay, both ingame and in the future in relation to additional optional features.

I need to point out that I don’t mind the concept of AnID, I’m just not all that keen on RealID, still, in it’s current form.

This comes from the “optional” part of RealID.

  • It’s an option to use it or not.
  • It’s an option to apply parental controls to your (maybe adult) account, or not.

Which really comes down to:

a). use it, or

b). not.

Currently I choose option b) (more…)
