Cataclysm Raiding: Opening Night

The guys and girls of Saturday Knight Fever ventured out this week with our first night of raiding in Cataclysm. OK we did visit Blackwing Descent on December 14th and got our collective asses handed to us as we failed to kill more than a single trash mob and Magmaw, he did lol at us as we ran away with our tails firmly between our legs. But more than that…

Golden balls……

You’ll all be glad to know that this post has very little to do with David Beckham or Jasper Carrot, but rather a neat trick if you are levelling an alt at around level 40 – 42 BEFORE Cataclysm comes and want to earn yourself a few gold too by farming  Big Mouth Clams for Golden Pearls in a cave on the Isle of Dread, the best place (according to Wowhead).

4.0.1: Initial thoughts

Well the first few hours of WoW 4x is done. The game is looking rather stable and the priest class looking rather healthy from my very limited playtime in game so far. Not that I didn’t spend much time in game, just not much time playing due to complete addon meltdown, now I am used to addons breaking after game patches but this was simply chaos and I am sure…
