The Backstory: Deadwood Days (pt 2)

Been a long while, since I posted a “Backstory“, in fact just looking at the last one and its been almost 6 months, man I have been slacking more than I realised. So I guess it’s time to make amends for my erroneous ways. So just a brief recap of where I left the story, a few months into The Burning Crusade myself and a few friends set up our own raiding…

Cataclysm Beta: Portals linking Darnassus to Exodar!!!

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…

Friendly Fire

More thoughts on the changes brought to us in 401, sorry I can’t be bothered with all the dots any more, lazy? I prefer to call it efficient. A general rule in raiding has been “move out of the fire”, the “fire” has ranged from the aforementioned fire to poison, void zones and acid. It has come in many shapes, many colours and many encounters from as far back as…

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…

635 days

No, not my total days played, but rather the number of days it took me to clear all raid content in WotLK. Sure I had defeated all bosses before over all of my characters but the Halion kill was on an alt and Evlyxx still needed that kill for me to consider him, and the rest of the WotLK raid content beaten. Sure I still have to kill a few…

The State of Raiding

In vanilla/classic WoW raiders were hard core players and the game was like a ladder you had to climb step-by-step to get to the top. Getting to 60 was a really epic journey and that took time and people learned their class and how to play the game generally. Once at 60 you farmed the 60 dungeons including Upper Blackrock Spire a 15 (and later 10) man raid zone that…
