Guild Wars Guru GvG Tournament (That’s a lot of G’s)

Sharpen those blades, hone those skills, and read up on those builds. It’s GvG time! The folks over at Guild Wars Guru announced last week that they’ll be hosting a wide-scale GvG tournament this spring, with an explicit focus on making the championship accessible to as many players as possible. The tourney will have four…

Wow PvP Pt1: The Death of World PvP

The current state of PvP in World of Warcraft. World PvP is gone, resilience has destroyed everything, battleground queues are torture, and twinking was murdered…but will Cataclysm save it?

Faction Xfers: Stormwind, we have a problem.

So as good friend and fellow blogger Kaae heartfully recounted in her blog, Blizzard’s recent faction change service has, in the opinion of many, caused more problems than it has solved. And, I hate to say it, I’d have to strongly agree. The issue has been mentioned several times on popular wow-podcast, The Instance, and…

Amused

Nothing of particular note to say. I have enough mats/gold to get my Vabbian armor for my warrior (woot!). Now the only thing is getting her to Vabbi… she’s level 6 … In other news, I find it amusing how everybody assumes I’m male in-game not so much because people just like to assume that,…

Causing Trouble in Guildwars

Something about Guild Wars just brings out the evil in me. Either way, while listening to some random person (Ashes of Nature) in PvP (Kurzick vs Luxon)rage about the “imbalance” of PvP, I (Drea Velaso) chimed in to fan the fire. It was fun until I realized he was one of dem delusional types who…

Ramblings on PvP, locks, ptr, wotlk

Ok, so it’s been a while. Nothing of particular note in the past, oh, month other than leveling. I stopped by the Lich King launch party in New York. That was a lot of fun, hung out with the NY meetup.com wow crew and a few peeps from my server. Got my lock to 80,…

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…

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…

Best. Fight. Evar. Running RA. True Story

Today i had the best fight ever in Random Areanas with my PVP ranger. I had gone through about six or seven games where my group lost miserably. This put a huge damper on my good mood (I also beat the game on my monk today, so I was feeling pretty invincible.) To make sure…
