Did You Think We Had Forgotten?

Posted in MMORPG with tags , , on February 27, 2014 by theerivs

Warlock6So I’ve been playing the Warlock alot, the other day I looked at my mage and lamented on how I haven’t played him in awhile, also in light of the mage changes coming down the path I decided I need to update the mage gear at the very least. There is a special place in my heart for the mage class it was my first class I played, though I switched to Warrior when my guild needed tanking. I went back to the mage when my guild left WoW for a short time.

Also I do like playing alliance, most of my buddies are playing alliance now, but my heart will always be horde, even more so the Forsaken. I love the Forsaken philosophy if you will, their survivors. In the Wrathgate cinematic where he says, ” Did you think we had forgotten? Did you think we had forgiven?” I got a forsaken boner.

So last night I logged into the mage, and started updating the gear, I got as much crafted malevolent gear as I can afford to replace some dreadful pieces, then I hit the timeless isle. I did a Celestial, and got bumpkiss.  I did get a few items some cuffs, and boots. Then I got this, a Burden of Eternity. I was like hmm. So I used it on my boots. HOLY CRAP it made it a 535 ilevel boots. NICE. I’m addicted to those now…I want more of em. I’m loving my mage again, so I might be hooked.



I’m Too Sexy For My Tabard

Riv1Transmogging is one of those things I thought I would NEVER get into. I’m a man’s man not some fashion model that likes to parade around in a fancy dress. Though I am highly individualistic, and my machismo wore down to the fact I like looking different then everyone else. As time went by I did some Transmogging, but nothing too serious, like I would be oh this dagger looks hot, or that shield would look awesome.

Last night in my quest for my turtle, and hit exalted with the Pandas, which I did achieve, I also achieved exalted with Thrallmar. So I look at the rewards, and there’s shoulders, and gloves which are red, and look pretty decent so I buy them. There was an awesome sword too but it wasn’t transmogging which is horseshit. As well as the rewards,  I also farm heroic instances, and I get alot of drops. Well I take a look at them, and I feast my eyes on the coolest looking helm. It looks straight almost like a Roman Helmet, but the greatest thing is it matched my red shoulders and gloves so great, add to the mix my Horde Shield. It all adds up to one thing…..

I’m one Sexy Bitch!

Don’t PvP on my Head, and Say it’s Raining

hooker-018As the patch 5.2 comes closer I am left with some hard choices. I need to have capped honor, or close enough to it (so when my conquest points convert they will be able to). Now here’s the questions at hand…

1. When is this damn patch coming out? – I hear end of Feb. I hear beginning of March….Depending who you talk to it’s different story. When is Blizz going to give a heads up, or will they?

2. What to do with Dreadful? – Off the bat I probably can’t afford all Malevolent gear from Honor. So should I upgrade some of my Dreadful to fill in the gaps until I can get all Mal gear.

3. What’s going to be the new numbers to aim for in terms of resil, and power? – Things are getting upgraded, so I’m sure I’m going to need bigger numbers everywhere.

I’m a little pissed, I just got decked out in Dreadful, and working on Malevolent….now I got news hey you need ALL new shit. I just wish this game wasn’t so damn gear dependent. I remember the days of old when Skill > Gear….now I’m thinking those days are long gone in WoW.

It Burns When I PvP

Posted in MMORPG with tags , , on February 13, 2013 by theerivs

s-STRIPPERS-largeI love AV Call to Arms. I load up on the honor fast. There are some surprising wins, but this morning it was mostly losses. Alot of it has to do with those damn Bots. For some reason when the bots are out farming some obscure place I don’t really mind. Hell keep those AH prices down. When they are in my BG, messing all that shit up, it drives me insane. Thats why I love the add on Oqueue. To be in a BG with all live players is great.

Well some major changes coming up to PvP in WoW….

Here’s an  article for your enjoyment.

MMO Champion…


Decision…decisions is right.  Here’s my plan. I just need the Dreadful Helm, and Dreadful Bracers to complete my set. I’m going to get those this AV CTA, but then the rest of the time I’m going to bank my honor, and try to reach cap. I’m going to also try to get my Conquest points up to get one more Malevolent Piece, so I don’t have an Conquest left that converts to honor. So when 5.2 comes out I can get my weapon I hope, and maybe another piece of Mal.

Slave to the Grind

So I’m freaking about the gear grind, and I stumbled onto some things that really started filling out my gear. Which is nice cause my guild is too far ahead of me, and I have to solo alot.

1. You can buy justice points with honor points, you get 250 Justice for 350 honor,  So all that PvPing leveling up, really paid off.

2. You get a tabard you get rep, even in regular dungeons 80 dungeons.  I did Regular Violet Hold, didn’t take that long, and when I killed the bosses I got 300 rep per, not bad I think if your knocking around solo.

3. Doing Cataclysm regular dungeons half way geared is easy sauce indeed.

4. There are some nice pieces of gear on the AH for relatively cheap, I got a mace, and the Amani Handguard Bracers for about 2k gold.

5. There’s some nice craftable pieces, if only Chaos Orbs were purchasable, I heard it’s soon, but not soon enough.

So I look forward to gearing up my Pally….

….so he can collect dust, and I can level my Mage.
