Back for 6.1: Re-Blizzard Fueled, Re-Fizzled

Actually I lied. I've been meaning to do this entry every since Blizzcon 2014.

This is going to be in the form of half-paragraphs, half notes.

Yes, I went to Blizzcon last year and I just have to say that I am too old for hype and lineups. While the event in itself was an awesome experience, lining up is not my cup of tea.

This event had actually revitalized my Blizzard geek batteries and I started playing D3 and StarCraft and HS all in anticipation for WOD's launch.

WOD Launched. Warlocks suffered.

My main gripe is that I can no longer out-dps someone 12-20 ilvl higher than me merely through existing, heck even someone 5-7 ilvl higher, it was the secondary stats! Where's the crit?

All fun was lost, it sucked being 2nd, 3rd, maybe 4th on the charts. While Highmaul itself proved itself to be adequately challenging, I have to admit that one of the contributing factors of "fun" for me was how well my character performed, and warlocks just did not perform well.

Then, everything just got boring. Garrisons = MMO phone game. Why? It's the most passive progression path you can think of. Click some things, come back for epics and gold. Wait what? The new Draenor is BEAUTIFUL, with a very awesome selection of soundtracks but other than doing the main quest I do not find any reason to go out and experience it. I don't even MIND not having flying mounts!

I believe we've cleared Highmaul and got halfway through "heroic" aka fake regular aka fake gating, and downed the first boss in Black Rock Foundry. I did anyways. Same boring thing, show up to raid, do sub-par, log out. On another note, why would you even play if you aren't #1 or immaterially close on the charts? This is a totally new experience for me. (I know I sound entitled and elitist but this is a truth).

Again, only thing I remember about that first boss is you need to dodge when he does his thing that makes it VERY obvious you have to dodge, then not dodge. Meh. Maybe i'll come back and raid after a big break. Our guild has transitioned over to FF14 currently.

Now what was I talking about? Oh yes 6.1.

Garrison updates. A random visitor, a SELFIE camera? Seriously? The target market has totally shifted? How do I even get Arakkoa rep? And are there even any other factions out there?

Raiding With Leashes 3: My goal is to finish this then probably let my toons go stale until there's an actual reason to log in.

Actually, that is all! See you in game!

Getting Ready for 6.0 Something

So I logged in for the first time today, nothing BIG has changed other than the fact some spells got a much needed cleanup as well as Warlocks losing their mobility????  Y U DO DIS?

The new Kiljaeden's Cunning makes us THINK and break down all our fights into 8 second intervals:

A. Which 8 seconds, and where do we need to move?
B. When can I pop this for a moving Chaos Bolt?

This shall be interesting.

Hunters got shafted, we lost serpent's sting! I've been using this spell as my default pulling spell for SEVEN YEARS? Oh well I'll adapt.

Druids: Wild Growth has a cast time..AGAIN? Make up your minds! You know what I don't even care as long as I still get to fock around in tree form!

Anyone going to Blizzcon and want to be best friends? Let me know before the event starts!

Actually...

Wowowowow ohai gusy wusup?

So I have not been very active here nor have I even logged in to raid for the past 2 months or so. I kind of stopped caring after we killed Garrosh back in February.

I'm still subbed, waiting for WoD to launch, but I've been putzing about Archeage (Inoch server) and having a blast. Anyone else playing? Find me I'm "Klupty"!

Anyways this blog is long due for an overhaul!

No Competition

Hi Reader,

Still subscribed? Pah!

So one thing I like about super rare tedious devious excruciating low drop rate mounts is that you generally face no competition for them once they go out of style and are farmable.

Looks like this week was a good week for me in terms of "outstanding things to do", after not giving a flying monkey's butt for the game, come back and farm some dungeons and land two "rare" mounts! Not bad at all!

Though its quite seizure invoking!

Like Glass

Hello Reader,

I'll admit, I've been on Elder Scrolls Online for the majority of my available online time. The world is just so vast and immersive, the quests are not redundant and I am self sufficient in my crafting!

Anyways, this is about WoW. What's like glass?

Well after two years of on and off farming:



Yes, the stupid Vitreous Stone Drake out of stupid Stonecore! Now I've only ever seen this mount drop once EVER, which was when I was leveling up an alt in the regular instance and the (of course) worst performing rogue won it (always).

With this drake down, there's only the one left in Vortex Pinnacle and the RIDICULOUS spawn-rate ones such as Time-Lost and Aeonaxx, though I regret not having searched harder before the merger of the servers, cause now there's just too many people!?!?

Anyways! Bye!
