I’m Forever Blowing Bubbles…..

I rolled a priest back in 2005 and the 1st 4 years Evlyxx was primarily a Holy priest. Shadow was my occasional “off-spec” and Discipline was this nasty kind of PVP spec that never appealed as it was neither healing nor DPS. It filled this strange place. I knew a few priests that dabbled and then returned Holy and that was how it went. Then along came Wrath, Discipline was the revised…

The Backstory: WoW in 2010

With 2010 drawing to an end I thought I’d take a look back at the year’s highs and lows. From changing guilds, to killing the Lich King suffering ISP issues and more guild drama 2010 has bee a strange year. I have had great times and bad times, happy days and sad days but I’ve never regretted anything I have done and have become better as a person out of…

Cataclysm Beta: Flight Master’s Licence

To avoid upsetting anyone all my beta information is going to be hidden from the main page, So if you want to have content spoiled you will need to click the “read more” link further down the page. The only clue will be from the title of the post but these will, I promise, always be vague enough to not give anything away. My purpose of playing the beta is to…

The Backstory Shorts: Winterspring Frostsaber

Finally got round to completing the Wintersaber Trainers reputation. I am now the proud and happy owner of a Winterspring Frostsaber as shown in the pic above. Apart from the mount I am really happy that I’ll never have to return to Winterspring and do these quests again as I deliberately finished the “grind” and pushed it to 999/1000 exalted. I now have 45 exalted factions and am now going to push…

Preparing For Deathwing pt2

On December 7th, we will begin the charge to kill Deathwing, but before we even think about the ultimate goal of this expansion we need to consider what smaller steps we need to take. Firstly you should review the 10 steps I mentioned in my post Preparing For Deathwing last week as at least 9 are still relevant. Now you’ve done them, lets look at the task and set out…

Preparing for Deathwing

In only a few short weeks, we will begin the charge to kill Deathwing, but before we even think about the ultimate goal of the next expansions we need to consider what steps we can take now to help us. The tasks can be broken down into a few small chunks under 2 wider categories, namely things we can do before December 7th and things that can be done after…

Grid for Nothing and Your Clique is Free

Patches are time for change in Warcraft be the tiny ones or behemoths like 4.0.1 which we have just received. Blizzard document the major changes that they make but behind the scenes they also make tweeks and major overhauls that go completely undocumented outside Blizz HQ. As a certified add on junkie the 1st job when logging in is to discover what addons are broken. The second job is to determine if…

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…

Sceptre of the Shifting Sands

After more than 5 years of having this in my quest log, I am very happy to have finally completed the Sceptre of the Shifting Sands questline. It all started with a loot drop from Broodlord Lashlayer in Blackwing Lair back in early 2006 and progressed very slowly as I gained rep to hit neutral rep , you start at hated, with the Brood of Nozdormu, which this took me until until…

Pre-Cataclysm Changes

Wrath of the Lich King and raiding ICC had become a bit of a chore for me lately, I found myself logging in for raids and do the occasional thing here and there, but my time in game has dropped dramatically because of this boredom/frustration and the guild drama a few weeks ago made things tougher. The time that I spent in game outside of raiding was spent with some…
