Weakly Lagout

High Latency Living - 

I’m going to try to play some more Heroes of the Storm, I also want to do more Brawlers Guild. I actually find it fun, and not bad gold. Can I reach rank 10 for that damn mount, I will see.

High Latency Love - 

Lets give Emma some love at Altamanic. She truly is one too.  I recently found her blog, and found it delightful to read,  plus she’s a fellow Chicagoite. Go show her some HLL love.

I try to steer clear of politics on this site, but my hate for Fred Phelp’s is legendary even in hell.

I Will Show You The Justice of the Grave

the-lich-king-8460….and the true meaning of fear.

I played a little more Heroes of the Storm last night. I actually spent a few bucks and bought The Lich King. Well worth it. I played Co-Op play and I got off to a rocky start but once I learned his talents a little more, and gained a few levels and more powers I was damn near unstoppable.

It took a while, and I have to say the AI was pretty good, and were tougher then I thought they would be, or maybe my team wasn’t that cohesive but in the the end we won. I played only 3 different maps so far, but I really wish there was a different setting, though I don’t know if there is yet or not. I mean the fantasy maps are cool, but would be cooler to see a Starcraft type map, perhaps in the future there will be, or there is and I haven’t played it yet.

One thing I do mention is the Music of HotS. I am really digging, most of the time I just don’t pay close attention to it, but it happens to be Rocking, there’s like a heavy metal flair to it, and I love it. I wonder if I could get some of the songs.

So far I’m really enjoying the game, and no bugs or complaints yet. It’s kind of sick how polished this game is even in Alpha.

My Blood Soaked Hands

Posted in MMORPG with tags , , , on March 19, 2014 by theerivs

girlboxerWell I’m kind of in get ready for new Expansion mode, which means I don’t really do much socially, I log in go about my business then get off. My business as of late is make gold, farm pvp rares for honor, and crafting working on tailoring.

Once in awhile I do VOA cause it’s 100 free honor, and chance for a mount. Last night I got the Reins of the Grand Black War Mammoth.  So feeling lucky I went to Onyxia and sorry no mount there. I wonder if it drops on 10 man at all?

In the morning I farm the Karasang PvP rares 750 honor for 10 minutes of work…your damn right I’m doing that. If their not up yes it’s a bit of waiting, but it’s easy and usually more than not their up and no competition for them. I’m surprised more people don’t do it. Oh well more for me.

The thing is this dropped a Blood Soaked Invitation. I guess I’m in the Brawlers guild now. That will be fun to check out tonight, and break the monotony of getting ready for WoD.

I’m No Hero

Posted in MMORPG with tags on March 17, 2014 by theerivs

sexy1I got invited to the Heroes of the Storm Alpha so I dove into it a bit. Now I’m never played an MOBA style game before so I have no frame of reference, is that a good thing or bad thing I don’t know yet. The good thing is I’m not jaded by other MOBA’s to hyper critical of this game, and I can just play it, and have some fun.

Lets start talking about the Heroes themselves. There are 4 basic types of heroes.

Types of Heroes

Assassin – Which is more offensive powerhouse, but weak defense. ex. Kerrigan

Warrior – Melee Slugger, more defensive ex. Diablo

Support - Abilities that support the team more than others. ex. Malfurion.

Specialist – More specialized in there talents to really fill in the blanks of a team. ex. Gazlowe

Though I haven’t played with most of the Heroes, I only played with Tyreal and Jim Raynor.  There talents seem balanced and the game so far is fun. I am looking forward to playing as Arthas, one of his abilities is calling down Sindrogosa. Some of the heroes just seem like an odd selection like Abathur, but as a specialist I can see him helping a team out. I look forward as they release new and different heroes.

Well I got a nice surprise last night and got extended an invite to Heroes of the Storm. I played a bit but I’ll save my findings for a full post. Other then that just rocking the lock getting ready for Warlords.

High Latency Love - 

I’m going to be honest I’m not a huge Podcast guy, for the same reason I don’t listen to audio books…I just don’t have the time but what I did check out is pretty funny, and cool Check out Brian at the Nerd Nuke.

My Expanded Thoughts

Posted in MMORPG with tags , on March 13, 2014 by theerivs

felicia-dayWarlord of Draenor is coming and people are all excited about it, and some not to excited about it. I’ve been thinking about some things and thought I would give my 2 cents worth, which sadly on todays currency market is only worth 1.3 cents.

Insta-90′s - I don’t really mind about insta-90′s  because I’m not a serious raider, but I use to be and would understand the challenges for hardened raiders when dealing with this. There is talk of a mechanic where you would need at least a silver in challenge mode to get into certain raids. I see this as a double edged sword, a good thing that something to measure skill besides the item level, bust a bad thing as it can be abused, and even cheated on.

Gear Changes - I think some gear changes are really in order, and need to bring back to basics.  Something interesting about quests giving random epic stuff sounds interesting.

10 more levels - I like leveling so this will be fun, but then again I got 3 toons, possibly 4 (if I boost a toon) to do it with so I’m not looking forward too all that grinding.

Garrisons- One of the major features I am really looking forward too. I need more gold for this I’m sure, been farming nonstop. I want to hit 200k on gold before the expansion hits, and if I do boost a 90 have that toon ready to level as well

Racial Traits - Not so pleased on some things, like where’s Diplomacy? Also not to happy with upping the Forsaken’s trait to 3 minutes instead of 2. Some of the others are pretty ok, like the Goblins upped haste buff. So I’m a little torn here.

No Flying Mounts – Uhm Suck my Cock Blizz. I really hate this. Of course I understand in the beginning no flying mounts but if I hit 100 I want to fly around damn it.

Overall – I’m really looking forward to this expansion, sure I would love a new class, or race, and some other stuff like flying…I think though overall it looks like it will be a good time.

06So Hearthstone went live yesterday and as a thank you they are giving you a pretty cool flying mount in World of Warcraft, a blue or red flying horse, which actually looks pretty cool. You have to win 3 times in play or arena to get your new horsey. Everyone who was doing Play was getting the blue horse it seemed.  So I’ll crush it in Arena. I went with Mage hero, and I drew some nice cards especially the pyroblast card. I was crushing it in Arena won 5 in a row until I lost 3 in a row a mage, then a pally, then another mage…to be honest the last one my heart wasn’t in it.

I logged into WoW to check my mount…damn it i got blue. Did anyone get red?  I wanted to get some easy pvp points, so I took my Warlock to Domination Point, my server is really lame no one farming these pvp rares. So I tried to kill Ubunti myself….yeah he has this ability that DOT’s me and pretty much kills me. The others weren’t up, I hope one of them is a nice easy tank and spank.

After being a little disappointed I just logged for the night.

One Lonely Beastie I Be

Posted in MMORPG with tags , , on March 4, 2014 by theerivs

tumblr_kxc8ybzlC51qz8rubo1_500One lonely Beastie I be… All by myself, without nobody” – Paul Revere from the Beastie Boys.

So I didn’t have much time last night so I thought I would try soloing some stuff.

I went to Onyxia…hmmm no mobs…SHIT.. I did her already this week. I hate when I do that.

I decided to try some Wrath stuff, I checked out Wintergrasp. Oh Alliance own it. Up next Vault of Archeron. Let me tell you I thought soloing as a Prot Pally was easy. NOTHING. Warlock was so easy, don’t even I got a scratch in VOA…and I even stood in the fire on purpose a few times. The great thing is got roughly 100 honor for it too, and a decent amount of gold, but no mount.  After I did that I decided to try to do Sarth with 3 drakes up.

Lesson one in doing Sarth…kill all the mobs. When you pull Sarth they come running too. The funny thing is before I died I did get Sarth down to about half.  So after killing all the mobs, I did my second attempt and I killed him so fast the other drakes didn’t have time to come down i don’t think. Well I didn’t see them anyways. For my effort got a nice 22 slot bag, oh and this Reins of the Black Drake which is awesome.

Looking forward to doing more solo stuff, I just love doing that. I’m going to try ICC I think, and definitely want to hit Kara for Attumans horse.

I have a friend’s wedding to go to this weekend so I don’t expect much gaming, but I’m going to try to check into Zuljin tonight to get a toon started cause a bunch of twitterati might be leveling together.

High Latency Love - 

Rowan is a person that gets me, he may not agree with me all the time and that’s all the more reason to love the guy. Go show him some HLL love at I Have Touched the Sky.
