The Power Auras section of my site was the one set of pages with consistent traffic, long after I let my blog collect dust. Ironically, I stopped using Power Auras last June. I wrote several drafts on the topic but never finished. It’s time to stop procrastinating. What am I using, if not Power Auras Classic?
There has been a lot of exciting news lately – from transmogrification, to void storage, to tank threat changes. Although there has been plenty of dissent from those that seem just generally unhappy with the game (or aren’t even playing WOW anymore), most of us appear excited. The collector in me is squealing with glee [...]
Notes I was very excited to dig into the loot pool of the new Zul’Aman and Zul’Gurub bosses that will be added in patch 4.1, coming SoonTM. Blizzard has done a great job of supplementing our pre-raid gear with new ilevel 353 epics. Note that none of these are going to be as good as [...]
Just as with my shaman gear list, there are a lot of caveats. This is NOT a BIS list. This is not even a BIS pre-raid list. It’s simply a variety of good options per slot to get you going. Check out this post on Elitist Jerks for Rogue stat weightings. I will include at [...]
Cataclysm adds a whole bunch of new mounts, from faction rep, dungeon drops, achievements and more. I’m a huge mount collector, so I thought that I would put together a reference guide. This doesn’t include any new TCG mounts or the new mounts for Draenei/Tauren Paladin.
Note: If you’re already somewhat geared up and looking for epic pre-raid gear from 4.1, check out this post Before I begin let me give you the caveat that this is NOT a BIS list, or even a BIS pre-raid list. I haven’t done a ton of math or put this gear through spreadsheets. As [...]
For most people this blog post will be extremely worthless. Trial of the Crusader is something to run on your alts — and even then probably on hard mode. I’m going to post it anyways, because there are casual players out there who might just benefit from it. It is also helpful for me to [...]
As I’ve mentioned before, I’m one of those crazy people who thinks that the Loremaster achievement is a good idea. Achievements in general really appeal to me. I’m a completionist at heart, and in WOW it is nearly impossible to achieve “100% complete”. The achievement system gives me manageable goals, and shows me my progress. [...]
At this point in Wrath, everyone is expected to know any heroic through Trial of Champions. This is incredibly obvious when you use the LFG tool – the tank tears through the instance like he has a big party to get to, and only stops for the healer to regain mana (if you’re lucky). If [...]
