• Why can't I roll on that trinket in a random heroic? This is why.

    The other day I took Ovistine — my shadow priest — to Oculus. Now, Ovistine's trinkets kinda suck, so when a Pendulum of Telluric Currents dropped, I was pretty psyched. I was the only DPS caster in the group, so I figured it was a no-brainer that I'd get it. I tried to click the […]

  • Three shoulders, three days

    I hadn't pugged an instance in more than four years. I stopped pugging when I finally fell in with a bunch of folks in WoW, and I still play with those people, plus I've got a raid now, and I often group with them. There's been no need to pug, plus I just generally had […]

  • Blast from the past!

    Thanks to last night's RP, this is the image that greeted me on login this morning: I had a definite "WHOA" moment on seeing that. I'm so glad I kept that armor and that weapon! Talk about your blast from the past…

  • Oh, Blizzard. Your headgear…

    Until yesterday, the most /facepalm-worthy interaction of headgear with character model was on Teuthida, whose Conqueror's Worldbreaker Headpiece has a chain sticking down off the chin, with a little weight at the bottom of the chain.  I'm sure this looks fine on some races… if you're male.  If you're a girl, the chain goes directly […]

  • Chicken sandwich rations for all

    Executive summary for people who don't use caster shields: HEY LOOK IT'S A CASTER SHIELD AND IT ONLY TAKES BEATING THORIM ON HARD MODE TO DO IT LOLOLOL. More seriously, here are the three caster shields in 10-man and 25-man Ulduar put together. (*sigh* Same three shields as there were in Naxx, except the haste/mp5 […]

  • 3.1 healer changes… sigh.

    I have the good fortune to be part of a really stellar healing squad with Totally Raiding, Inc.. We're good, and we work really, really well together. I love (love!) raid healing as a shaman; I loved raid healing as a priest, too, but I love the particular methods and spells I work with as […]

  • Hooray for the Outlands

    Agness hit L58 last night, and this morning I took her to Hellfire Peninsula. I'm really enjoying having a chance to solo instead of dual-boxing; while I can't deny it's useful, and I'll probably dual-box Teu and Ovinia [mage and druid], it's a pain. I love the Outlands. Oh, sure, it's the same old zone […]
