2012: Just Another Year in Azeroth

This year has been a real roller coaster ride for me in Warcraft and to be honest I got to admit that what looked real scary at the beginning ended really well and I’m really looking forward to the next ride although I must admit I’m hoping for a more gentle run this time around. That said, I have doubled my wow friends list and have had the honour of…

WoW Ironman: Ironiana Dings 48

OK so the image above probably gives the game away so for the nay sayers out there, yes I failed to get to 85, but I don’t think I have actually failed because I learned a lot about myself, the way I play the game, the way the game works and more importantly answered a lot of questions about how other players the game too. As experiments go I’d say…

Wow Ironman: Ironiana hits 40

Been a bit slow lately due to Mists beta, work and other WoW goals being pursued but I have finally gotten my ass to 40. The questing through Stranglethorn’s 2 zones has been fun and to be honest a lot easier than I had expected. I’m not sure if this is me settling into the mindset, having more abilities (traps and feign death) that assist in controlling the unexpected or if the zones isn’t…

Wow Ironman: Ironiana hits 30

Ironiana @ 30 Not much to say as the title says it all its not getting any harder just yet which has surprised me.

Rawhide Shoulder Pads Woolen Cape Cuirboulli Vest  Cuirboulli Bracers Cuirboulli Gloves Cuirboulli Belt Cuirboulli Pants Cuirboulli Boots Dacian…

WoW Ironman: Ironiana <Is Doing It Wrong>

Ironiana @ WildhammerEU @ 25 Just a quick update on my WoW Ironman, take 3 progress. Finally hit level 25 and have also succumbed to the no guild thing because I was getting spammed to hell by people recruiting for their guild or wanting a guild charter signed. I put out a call to my realiID friends and one rose to the challenge and as he has a few accounts did much…

WoW Ironman Challnge Fail 2

Well I learned another valuable lesson today about patience and over confidence. My 2nd attempt at the WoW Ironman challenge ended in tears because I was an impatient ass. well on my way to level 24 a bag full of completed quests and needing to get off to work in 10 minutes I decided to grab the item for the last incomplete quest in my log. All that stood between me and…

WoW Ironman Challenge

WoW Ironman “rules” After having the gauntlet of WoW Ironman thrown down by Branchy, a druid from Saturday Knight Fever and reading the rules (see above), I decided to accept the challenge. The idea of leveling up doing it wrong appealed because with modern talents, heirlooms and reduced XP requirements leveling now is a face-roll and following the “rules” will actually make leveling a challenge, a very BIG challenge! My initial thought was to roll a warlock, but…
