So far in 5.0.4

Kill me!!!! KILL ME NOW!!!

I had about 3 hours to play with 5.0.4 before I went away for the weekend, suffice it to say I am now a week behind everyone else who has been playing and re-learning their classes. Also having the time to read up about their changes etc.

Let’s start with my mage – it’s screwed. I stuck with arcane just for the hell of it, and I think I understand my rotation, but I can’t perform it. Things light up and I get distracted and hit them when I shouldn’t and it is all just bad. I am also trying to figure out this one spell that seems to last about 15 seconds and I keep needing to re-apply on the mob…I don’t get it…just yet.

I have yet to try fire or frost, as my gear was weighted for Arcane, I may play with the other styles to just see which suits me better. My fingers are crossed for frost, I want my water elemental!!

My Druid: I am loving the changes to boomy so far that I have figured out with the brief time I have played. We have stuff we can do whilst moving that isn’t pointless, and we seem to moving phases with eclipse much faster because of those changes. It is much nicer now and doesn’t feel as restrictive. I love the armoured boomy and the stag as well, awesome! I don’t play resto, but I do adore seeing the original trees around again – I do have a soft spot for the old tree style 🙂

My Pally: I have not even logged into yet for fear. Hubby has been tanking on his pally and I can see the changes he is having to deal with. I would not say he is struggling now, but he is certainly having to deal with a lot of changes. It has scared me off a little bit as I really do enjoy tanking and I would hate for it to be borked now.

My Warrior: Refer above. A few people have already told me that warriors have less cooldowns now and I am dreading having to sift through it all. Warriors are my favourite tanking class and I would be devastated to log in and find I don’t want to tank on him anymore. I will attempt to log onto my two tanks this weekend.

My Shammy: I got as far as selecting my talents and then had to do some 5 mans on my mage. So I have really got no idea what changes have been made to the rotations etc, I did briefly look through the glyphs but didn’t really get a chance to go much further than that. I am going to set her up with a resto spec when I get some time to play with her, hopefully this week. I am not overly worried though since my shammy is not one of my main toons.

To make matters worse, I finally got rid of Dominoes – the bar mod, because it was pissing me off in PVP. It would dislike my mouse and just not register the clicking and so was causing me havoc in survivability. Losing that though, has meant my bars and spells are all over the shop anyway because of the changes to the trees – PLUS the bar mod moving them around.

All in all, my toons are all in a massive mess and I just need a couple of nights to sort them all out.

We are trying to get the guild levelled since they have taken away the xp limits, so I am not really getting a chance to do much else but run dungeons for the xp. I would like to get my mage to exalted though so that is helping as well. I need to start doing some dailies again – I need more money for MoP.

Shared Topic: Windows to the world

Martha.net has once again come up with a right cracker for a shared topic.  I cannot help but love looking at other people’s UI’s. They have such wonderful designs and mods and it makes me want all the modz!

I have not had a standard UI since Vanilla when I saw a post on our guild forums and asked how to change mine. I was in heaven from there and I have had some very very out there creations.  IN fact, I am pretty sure I have an old post somewhere in the archives about all my different UI’s over the years….hrmm….ah ha!  Here it is 

After a break from the game I generally don’t touch my UI for about 3 months, and then it is all hell for leather and I will change things on a whim.  I spent all of Sunday re-doing my UI as I was having massive trouble when raiding with being able to place spells down – like flame strike etc.  I had so much in the way and in the middle of my screen it was so annoying.  Not only that,  I had timers, and markers and reminders all over the screen – It was HORRIFIC!!!

No raid and UI

We didn’t raid last night due to a lack of numbers – approx 3 i think. So we are hoping that tonight will be a go. We are so close on Spine it would be a shame not to get it done.

I am looking at guilds on the blizzard forums and will be checking out wowprogress.com today at some point. Although the person I dislike has not been back online since that first night, it still weighs on me that we haven’t cleared DS and I have spent another expansion behind the curve for progression.

I was a little disappointed we didn’t raid, to be honest, as i was hoping to try out my new UI which I spent most of Sunday configuring and i think it looks pretty spanking actually. I am still tweaking etc, but given this weeks Shared Topic was UI related I will make a post tomorrow (after raid screenshots tonight) showing it off.

I haven’t had much of a chance to play lately with real life demanding a lot of my time 🙂 hopefully that will start reducing again in the next 2 weeks!

Pallies, mages, gear …OH MY!

***For some unexplained reason, this did not post, so here is me tryin again!***

 

What a massive few days I have had in game!  My god!  I just haven’t had chance to post about everything as real life has as usual, taken up time 🙂

This is going to be a long post, and I will update with some piccies later when I get home…however let’s get started shall we…not sure if this is going to be at all chronological, but we shall see how it travels!

Nostalgia and my UI

So whilst doing the previous post about Azeroth, whilst trolling through my screenshots I noticed my UI has undergone so many changes!!  I thought I would link them here for memories 😀

Another image intensive post, but they are all behind a cut 🙂 ( I just learnt how to do that this morning, so I am likely to use it a lot more now 😀 eheeh

Ulduar Hardmodes and general stuff

Guild makes me want to cry!!!

The 1 month I am not online is the month they FINALLY decide to start doing some hardmodes and achievement runs in Uld/TOC – I could kill them!!!

Apparently we have jumped from 69th to about 53rd or something in the last 2 weeks, which is kind of cool 🙂

I am glad they are managing to get some achievements done, good to see them working together 😀

I am suffering some major withdrawals, I know everyone says that, but I am seriously suffering, I keep thinking of different areas in the game I want to just ride through, or places I enjoyed whilst levelling, and just a general buzz when I think of the game…I am pathetic I know…but I just can’t help it!!

My hubby has basically given the game away I think, he is pretty much over it, still enjoy it too much to want to quit, so I will be bringing my pally to the alliance side and should hubby decide to take up the game again after Cataclysm I will switch a toon hordeside again.

I wish we could get more information about Cata!! I really want to learn more about the guild achievements and I want to knwo what to expect and if a guild restructure can occur perhaps, I really want to get into 25 mans for Cata….either this guild or join another….I want to be at the forefront of raiding – I am not meaning server firsts – but I am sick of being last to be raid ready….that’s just me being selfish though 😀

Anyway only 3 weeks to go then I should be back online!!! THREE WEEKS!!!! SQUEEEE!!! I hate moving!!! am just on the last leg of packing – will be starting the entire cleaning process this week and planning for our new PC’s 🙂 mmmmmm New computers that can let me have my details settings on high and let me not drop below 65 fps in Dalaran – yes that is my aim!!

AND OMG I can do my UI again and have it the way I want it – with sexymap running and mmm, so many other little gems!! God I am getting more excited about my new computer than anything else at the moment 🙂 !!!

Annoyed!!!!

Ui’s!

I spent most of the day playing with my UI again and tweaking it..ie getting rid of crappy addons, adding some I have been meaning to add for a while and doing some other general stuff, was awesome, until I fucked it up and had to start from scratch due to a mod I installed called Reflux, the mod works beautifully I am just an RTard who didn’t think about it before I made a crazy error 😀  IN essence about 10 hours spent over 2 days on my UI, started Friday ngiht

 Reflux as a mod is awesome, basically it lets you create a profile for all your mods, and then when you go onto another toon you can use the same profile so it will set up most of your mods exactly the same…I had to move recount and my chat frames on all my toons, otherwise most other settings were the same for everything…Not something I would suggest using if you already have a UI, but I would suggest using it next time you work on your UI from scratch – ie cataclysm J LOL

 I shall post a piccie later, however below is a vague list of my mods now.
