Ultimate Online WoW Resource Guide

A zilliion years ago for BC I had made a post about online resources for WoW for all sorts of areas of the game. That was actually more like 3 years ago and the list had maybe six links. Since then, the game has obviously changed and many sites have phased out in favor of…

Mage-craft and my initial thoughts.

I’m in yer base, Izzie, nom’ing on your post counts… and making comments on the Mage Preview posted recently. Original info can be found here, and for simplicity sake, I’m going to follow the same format used by Izzie.http://forums.worldofwarcraft.com/thread.html?topicId=24262357286&sid=1 Flame Orb (81): ++ Another button that a fire mage will have to press in our…

More Class Preview Babble.

In light of all this Cataclysm class info, there’s been a lot of talk about. Xero’s chiming in with his mage response tomorrow, and I’m going to try to coerce Lizzie to do a write up on Priests. I might also do a Lock/Rogue post since I’ve played both classes to 80. Until then, though,…

Shaman Changes, Thoughts…

For the sake of room, I’m leaving out descriptions. They can be found easily here:http://www.mmo-champion.com/news-2/cataclysm-class-preview-shaman/ My thoughts, (Resto Bias) Primal Strike (available at level 3):–Kudos, Melee shaman have been needing a boost to make leveling Enhance worthwhile. A simple but powerful change. Healing Wave (level 4): –Although this is starting to feel a little too…

Pre-thoughts on Patch 3.3.3

As always, I’m behind, but I finally got around to reading the PTR notes (and planning on testing out this new BG system hopefully before it goes live.) It undeniably has a big feel of being the first big step towards setting WoW up for the next expansion. Now, many are thinking this means Cata…

The Female Characters of WoW and why they need work…

The way females are portrayed in video games is a long standing hot-topic that never fails to get the attention whores a-yappin’ while the majority of the gaming community just rolls their eyes in exasperation. That being said, it’s always a fun conversation to have among peers; you’ll have five people arguing and six different…

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…

Garrosh Hellscream is a tool, and really needs a hug.

To be fair, as a counter to all my Varian hate, I decided to expand on my extreme distaste for Garrosh Hellscream. It’s only fair I pick on a fellow Hordie. As much as I love my faction, we are not without our toolbags. Now, in an attempt to give Varian some depth as a…

King Varian is a Tool, and You Can Too.

So my distaste for Varian has been long festering, and of course it started with bias. As a Hordie, anybody who runs around threatening my peeps gets put on my shit-list. A lot of my wow friends from my server, though, wanted me to sympathize with his sad and broken past. So out of respect…
