No thanks. I did every world event loyally, got the titles, the pets, went hunting for specific class/race combos, and then not one goddamn bag of candies dropped in February. Then I realized I just didn’t really care at all. Bah, whatever, and so forth.
Get the midsummer’s title, Flamekeeper, on the very off-chance I spec fire again, but other than that I don’t really bother with world events anymore.
What kind of title is reasonable for an arcane mage anyways? I switch between “of the Nightfall” and “the Undying” these days (by the way, the Black Drake is an amazingly handsome mount, highly recommended, you kinda feel like a Nazgul on that thing), but those are kinda “durr hurr look at me I raid and stuff”.
Buckle down, spam BGs until I get “of the Horde”? Grab Loremaster? Go titleless because it’s just a dorky vanity thing? Whip out “the Explorer” to make people underestimate me in battlegrounds?
Speaking of that, where are all the good male draenei mages? I can’t recall having seen even one since the launch of TBC. Literally every single male draenei mage I have come across has varied somewhere between “awful” and “not quite as awful”.
You’d think by now some sort of elite super mage would have made a male draenei just to get people to think he’s bad, then he kicks their ass all kinds of sideways.
“Oh look a male draenei, man, this mage is going to wait what he doesn’t suck what is this I don’t even-”
I keep getting the “hard to get” battleground achievements on alts. Without a Scratch? Paladin got it. Ironman? Got it on the warrior. GAH.
Ironman is hard for a clothie that can’t heal. My two hugest defensive cooldowns, Invis and Ice Block, are wholly unusable. I can’t even use rocket boots anymore! Some day I’ll have to just suck it up, spec frost and force a couple discipline priests from the guild to help me get it.
I think arms warriors are overpowered at every single bracket except 80. Maybe not though! I’m still leveling the guy up, maybe I’ll suck in the 69 bracket somehow.
Yeah, no, probably not. LOLBLAEDSTIRMSOISOISOISOI. But seriously though, a level 41 warrior going toe to toe with 48s and 49s (of any class) and that’s an even fight? There is absolutely no way I’m any good at warriorizing, thus the only conclusion is that I’m being carried by my spec and gear.
Heh. Account bound gear for the win. It is mind-blowing how well that stuff can carry your sorry behind.
What I love as a warrior, more than anything else, is killing warlocks. Warlocks are nothing to a warrior. Nothing. A clothie that can’t run, can’t snare, can’t root, can’t fear me… my eyes light up with the rage of a thousand suns and I cackle every single time.
“FEAR ME! I DARE YOU TO FEAR ME! FEAR ME YOU PANSY ASS MOTHERFU-” and then they fear me, I slam Berserker Rage, and give them a one way ticket to the graveyard. At which point, spittle splattering on the monitor, I scream “THAT WAS FOR THE BURNING CRUSADE!”
I have issues.
DO NOT, I repeat, DO NOT PuG any raid after Friday. Without exception, any raid after Friday is full of fail. There’s a damn good reason I quit raiding 25-man content back in BC, and that’s because I hate people.
Not people people, mind you, but people people.
The kind of people who complains, completely seriously, that giving the Onyxia whelpling pet to everyone is total bullshit because you used to have to work so hard for it.
The kind of people who, after wiping to 25-man Ony, whips out a healing meter and calls out the discipline priest at the bottom with 750k healing done* for causing the wipe, completely ignoring the three resto shamans who died immediately on entering phase 3 and the 10 (seriously, TEN) people who got cleaved to death.
* Top heals was a druid with 2 million (Nourish and Wild Growth spam for the win, apparently), everyone else was 1 million to 850k, the disc priest in question was 100k healing behind the second last healer.
The kind of people who forms a raid for 25-man ony, walks into 10-man, which he has already done for the week, and then freaks out that some asshat got him saved to 25-man and wasted that week’s lockout…
The kind of people who, after seeing people say “no, that’s 10-man, walk out, set it to 25-man”, walk into the 10-man version, see the popup on their screen that says “HOLY CRAP YOU ARE ABOUT TO BE SAVED TO 10MAN ONYXIA, AND BY ABOUT, WE MEAN IN 60 SECONDS, ARE YOU SURE?” and they say “yep I’m sure!” and then bitch at the raid leader when they get saved to 10-man Onyxia.
None of that happened to me, thank god, it happened to my guild leader as he was pugging on his priest (the disc priest mentioned before).
Sadly he told me about it, I hurled myself off the ninth floor, but sadly survived and lived to tell you. Gravity isn’t enough to kill you these days, it’s been nerfed to the ground.
Mage T10. You must wear four pieces of this set. You absolutely must. The 2-piece haste bonus is decent, yes, but it’s the 4-piece that makes it. For those who missed the memo:
2-piece – Hot Streak, Missile Barrage, and Brain Freeze grant you 12% haste for 5 seconds when the effect is consumed.
4-piece – Your Mirror Image ability also causes you to deal 18% more damage for 30 seconds.
Read that 4-piece bonus again. Read it again. Now, print it out on a piece of paper, then rub your face all over it.
It’s… I mean… that bonus is so good there are simply no words to describe it. 18% more damage for 30 seconds. Hot damn.
Apparently I’ve been blogging for over two years now. Go me, I guess. One of these days I’ll write a post that doesn’t suck.
Why, exactly, is castration illegal again?
