  • Weirdly, I can't delete my account online.

    For unknown reasons (ahem), the page one would normally use to cancel a WoW subscription isn't working. Saving this to try again later — this is what I'm C&Ping into the field. (And, okay, full disclosure: I'm canceling my second account, not the main account. Yet.) I'm horrified by RealID becoming mandatory on the official […]

  • In which I cheat on WoW with other games

    I have been kinda quiet on the topic of WoW due to the fact that I'm struggling with some raid burnout. My raids are progressing just fine — my 10-man has gotten its first Arthas kill and knocked out a couple of hard-mode fights — and my 25-man is up to Arthas and should be […]

  • Five years ago today

    It was December 26th, 2004, and as usual, Valinar had gotten a ton of video games for Christmas. One of the games he'd gotten was World of Warcraft. I'd heard of WoW. I was familiar with the Warcraft franchise, having been with Valinar and one of our good friends at the midnight release of Warcraft […]

  • Who were these crazy shamans, and what were they doing?

    When I got started healing, I was almost always following Valinar around. Made sense to me at the time! I could throw an Earth shield on him, drop Strength of Earth and Windfury down, and trail behind him skinning things. When we started getting into instances, I was still basically glued to Valinar, and we […]

  • L.O.S.!

    With love to all my favorite tanks (who are only as guilty of this as everyone else — indeed, I looked for a way to include DPS in this filk but it's a pretty short song)! "L.O.S." = line of sight.  If you lose line of sight to a target, you can't cast a spell […]

  • OH GOD MY UI

    Yesterday was not a good technology day in the House of Teu and Val. The Players Romney: The media center in our bedroom. Romney dual-boots into Romney-Vista and Romney-Linux. Shetland: The audio-recording computer in the craft room. Leicester: Val's WoW rig Dorset: My WoW rig, largely inherited from Val's castoffs, which also functions as the […]

  • WoW and its RL facets

    Just a game? Not exactly, says Panzercow: while there is a game there, where you kill monsters and take their lunch money and gather eight [Bear Asses] and turn them in to gain the [Gigantic Hammer of E-Peenage]…there’s also a community there, of real people. Good people, bad people, shy people, loud people, young people, […]

  • Anna's Friday Five: The Three R's

    Ouch! Sarth+3? Still hurty. In any event, I didn't fill out Anna's Friday Five earlier today, so while I'm licking my wounds (metaphorically), here are some Friday Five answers! Can your character read and write? All my characters can definitely read and write, although of all my girls, Agness and Ovistine are the ones most […]

  • Mental note: Not all guys are sleazy.

    One day, many many many many moons ago, I'd told a friend of mine that I was on Feathermoon under the name of [MyNowDeletedToon], and to look me up if he rolled a character there. A few days later: RandomPerson: My, aren't you a fine-looking woman! Me: /ignore RandomPerson Friend: Oh, hey! RandomPerson is that […]
