[eep] I tanked Normals :)

Let me start by saying, this happened in the week I was suffering from food poisoning. I had been working from home in an attempt to not take sick leave, my Dr later told me off for that and said I had to just rest. So my blog got updated instead 🙂 Food poisoning is… Read More [eep] I tanked Normals 🙂

Shared topic 42: What is your favourite role and why?

This week’s topic from Z and Cinder is a nice one: Do you love being the shield that protects your group, or the damage dealer that melts the mobs before you or the healer at the back shaking your head at the people standing in fire and giving you something to do? We’d also love… Read More Shared topic 42: What is your favourite role and why?

Your absence is duly noted!

I would like to be able to give you some wonderful story of redemption, quests, adventure and dragons to explain where I have been,  sadly it is just life. Adjusting to a new routine is taking longer than expected and I honestly am not feeling great about it. I am highly stressed and missing a… Read More Your absence is duly noted!

Shared: Topic 35: Your most badass moment in game

LOL We have long been the heroes of our own stories in World of Warcraft. NPCs, both minor and major alike, remind us constantly that we are the saviours of Azeroth; that if it weren’t for us, the world would have ended if we hadn’t have defeated that boss, or killed that pest, or scooped… Read More Shared: Topic 35: Your most badass moment in game

Someone pinch me…hard…

Or gentle…either way I can’t believe this at all. I had simply put this into the pile of things I might get done eventually but was giving up on actually believing it would happen. Craig messaged me a couple of days ago trying to convince me to come on a run and get myself carried… Read More Someone pinch me…hard…

Blizzard why did you betray me this way? After everything I have given you.

I cannot preface this post enough to explain how everything that follows stems from a deep sadness at being misled by Blizzard at a time that should have been amazing. I do not see the silver lining on this. We were going to run some mythics for the weekly quest however Michael was eating dinner;… Read More Blizzard why did you betray me this way?

Mythics: 2 hours of time just gone…stupid Lower Kara

This is one of the mythics our group keeps running and we just cannot seem to get the bosses.  We normally give it a few attempts and then just call it quits.  Now though – we can say different. We had a purpose…Screw the timer and let’s just get it done for Michael so he… Read More Mythics: 2 hours of time just gone…stupid Lower Kara

Balance of power….I kid you not…still…

The illustrious Nelly’s raid for my nightshards was a pretty resounding success. Apparently my terrible drop rate was unusual and I should have gotten more.  Well they dropped in the raid. Every boss gave me something – thankfully. I am extremely grateful to this group of people for coming along and helping me smash through… Read More Balance of power….I kid you not…still…

Torment of Friendship

Sometimes when you are in a guild, you feel like you have found a home. A place where you can have fun, relax, beat up some baddies and just enjoy even more time in Azeroth. I have never been one for guild halls as ideas because I would rather people be out and about in… Read More Torment of Friendship

Mythics unlocked!

I was chatting to Nelly in guild about the balance of power questline and where I was up to which brought up how I still need to complete a mythic 15 for the purple bear. Admittedly, during that chat, I laid all the blame on our failure at the feet of our DPS.  We were… Read More Mythics unlocked!

and the balance of power continues

Forever…..and ever….it feels like the longest, longest quest line to want to complete. Seriously killing my patience, but with the release of BfA dates now I have to get it done. It is like a need in me. I have been doing a quest or to per day depending on what is required which I… Read More and the balance of power continues

Balance of Power…..ongoing

As part of the quest chain to get reputation with the Nightfallen, I was required to do a couple of heroics (Acway and CoS). So whilst we were waiting for Oui to come home and do some mythics, I convinced Ben and Drew to run me through the heroics. I figured we would smash them… Read More Balance of Power…..ongoing

Balance of Power

The pain in my bear butt. Introduction This quest is part of a comment-size guide for “Balance of Power.” questline (the last quest…finally). Quests are pretty much self-explanatory and all it takes is some time and good will to complete them. Completing this questline rewards Artifact Appearance (Appearance 3, Tint 1). Part 1 Image of… Read More Balance of Power

Raiding: Is it a wipe or a kill?

Woo!  Wooooo!!  You know what that means.  Epicness follows below. Tonight started rough, we wiped a couple of times due to just random assortment of bad luck, but we improved dramatically on phase 3 with some better set up for adds. It was good to see it coming together. We got him to 4% and… Read More Raiding: Is it a wipe or a kill?

Raiding: Heroic Argus

As you may be aware at the moment I am suffering a severe head cold. The type that makes your face painful all over with sinus gunk. I haven’t been at work the last 2 days and I wasn’t sure I was really even capable of raiding but I made an appearance because, well, aside… Read More Raiding: Heroic Argus

Raiding: Heroic Aggramar

We decided to give Aggramar a couple of attempts and see if we could do him instead of Coven (the painful trio).  We struggled with the spawns, both location and timing of explosion. It requires a lot of talking between people to ensure the adds are stopped until we need them. If we take 2… Read More Raiding: Heroic Aggramar

Raiding: Heroic Varimathras

So we managed to smash this one in the face with relative ease.  I say relative because it was me causing most of the mess with trying to get into the right position to avoid double misery.  My initial attempts were mediocre at best, however I was taunting too quickly  – possibly – I am… Read More Raiding: Heroic Varimathras
