The Legend of Beta Part III: Finale. Be the solution.

Part 1 • Part 2 • Part 3 So comes the final sequel of this 3 part monster. As always, many thanks to everyone who commented / tweeted with feedback, it’s always much appreciated. Another awesome blogger, ThatShortGuy, did a reaction to the Beta ideas with an interesting view on social networking and transparency during…

The Legend of Beta Part II: Demos Vs Beta

Part 1 • Part 2 • Part 3 Before I start, I wanna give a shout out to Hunter’s Insight. He made a post on betas a few days before me and it’s definitely worth a read over here: To Beta or Not to Beta? Second, fellow blogess Kaae of Way Too Serious and commenter…

The Legend of Beta Part I: WTF Happened?

Part 1 • Part 2 • Part 3 There are certain key words that have become natural triggers for people who are gamers: free, epic, loot, newb. But none have the lasting power or influence over our minds that that one, magical four letter word: Beta. Say it at convention and 20 heads will turn…

Strategy: Strand of the Ancients – Defense and Offense (Work in Progress)

In AV, a handful out of 40 players who know a good defensive strategy can make or break a game. Strand, however, is roughly the travel size of AB (maybe even slightly bigger), with 5 less people to defend six key points, not including graveyards. With ties currently being the most common outcome, it’s important…

Rogue Professions for Lich King ?

Out of guilt for ignoring my rogue, I hopped on to Elitist Jerks, who’ve always been PvE centric in their discussion. My love for raiding on my rogue just kind of exploded back into gear. And in the long run, I feel I’m just naturally better at this class than Lock(for PvE at least). Who…

PvP Videos / Thoughts on Strand of the Ancients / Wintergrasp

I made two short PvP videos from Strand. The first is of Holy Priest, build can be found in this entry. THe quality of that video is extremely terrible. I had to use my mac’s in-game movie capture, and the lag was… well you can see what it was. I’m probably going to take it…

More Northrend Exploration / Videos

Since my mac loads ground textures, I did some more exploring around the Borean Tundra mostly, with a few shots of the Nexus, the very badass Warsong Hold (SAURFANG <333) and a few scattered shots from the Dragons Blight. Screens at the end of the post and soon to be added to the slide show.…

Intro to Northrend Screenblog / Texture Issues

Unfortunately, I’m one of the many players with older computers using the Radeon 9000 series video cards that are having   issues loading ground textures.This problem’s been around for the past 2 patches or so, for at least 2-3 weeks. It’s really lame/frustrating for me cause I never got passed the DK starting area before…

Ramblings on Wrath builds

So i’m playing around with the WotLK talent calculator, basically trying to figure out on my own what might be some good builds for leveling my lock and rogue. Most of the builds posted online are for 80’s and don’t account for leveling 🙁I figure going pure PvP or Raid spec like most 70’s won’t…
