One Lone Beastie I Be

Posted in MMORPG with tags , , , on February 1, 2013 by theerivs

Beastie Boys Studio PortraitSo one of my latest obsessions is soloing stuff. I always did enjoy going through old content and tearing it up for fun and profit. The other day I headed into Magtheridon. I crushed him literally. I got some good stuff, as well a 20 slot bag which was nice to use in my bank replacing one of the 16 slot bags I use in there. I might have to head back and get more bags.

Now I do a Heroic  Halls of Lightening run every so often cause I heard Books of Glyph Mastery drop in there a lot. I also heard that those books fetch a decent price. (lowest price one is 199 gold on my server right now)  Well to no avail, no books, but I do get 100-150 gold a run which is nothing to sneeze at, and I actually get rep, and a few honor points, sure only like 15 but hey it’s pure bonus really for a run that takes literally 15 minutes if that.

Last night I got it in my head to try Gruul. Well I got to High King Maulger, and I was stopped. Between the Warlock douchebag (Olm the Summoner), another reason I hate Warlocks, fearing me, and some other douche polymorphing me every few seconds I couldn’t get the fat ogre bitches down. I wanted to kill the priest first cause if I didn’t he kept healing others. Maybe there’s a better strat to solo these a-holes, or I might have to bring a DPS friend.

For right now my dreams of seeing Gruul’s crotch again will have to wait.

 

Cool Little Tips

Posted in MMORPG with tags , , on October 25, 2012 by theerivs

I love when I learn a cool little tip here or there. Last doing Heroic Stormstout Brewery…for the hundredth time (ok fifth) trying to get my tanking weapon to no avail.

The last boss is preceded by a couple mob phases, one of the mob phases has a bunch of mobs which are spread out and don’t really move. Well the group I’m with is all from the same guild, and the monk goes, “Tank when they come up, we’re all going to stand behind the pillar on far side of the room, and line of sight them.”

So when they popped up the whole group went behind the pillar, they followed us, and we AOE’d the crap out of the little bastards. I didn’t even know you could do that, and it made the run a little easier. 

That really made my day learning cool little things to speed things up, anyone has any cool tips feel free to share them if you so wish,

I’m That Healing Bitch

Posted in MMORPG with tags , , , on September 11, 2012 by theerivs

I’m entering my Pally in Rupaul’s Drag Race,  I just got a set of Greaves, that look like a skirt that I use to Xmog. Totally wearing the crap out of those. Well a Guildie wanted to get them for his female pally…pfft and waste them on that Ho.  My guildie was like are you actually going to use those…I said, “Remember who you’r talking to, I was the Orc who wore Lightforge Spaulders for the longest time cause I said I was going to be the first orc Pally.”  He just busted out laughing, and replied, “Yeah, that was you”  Well after I Xmogged, I gotta say I look fierce.

So last night I donned my skirt, and the rest of my Holy Gear and stepped into the Battlegrounds. I need to get the Cataclysmic Greatsword, had only 900 honor, and I needed 3400.  I healed the shit out of my fellow hordling, I topped the healing charts alot. It went from just standing there healing unmolested, which showed the alliance sucked, to being beaten on like a 2 dollar crack whore. Those were the battles I loved, the challenging ones. Where I had to use every ounce of my talent to heal. I really do enjoy healing from time to time. It brings me back where it all started in DAOC, and a cleric.  So by the end of the night, I got my sword…it looked mean and ugly. I xmogged it to something prettier. I think I may be playing my Pally a little too much…..I’m having weird thoughts like I could use some nice heels to go with my skirt. God what am I going to be like after I level him to 90?

The Healing Bitch

Posted in MMORPG, Uncategorized with tags , , on June 4, 2012 by theerivs

I’m not one of those people who say they hate World of Warcraft so much they will never be back. Do I like the path Blizzard took, No not really. Do I hate the game? No, there are some aspects I still really enjoy. SWTOR is kind of losing it’s luster to me, and Diablo is fun, but I can’t play for huge amount of time. So when my guildies of old (I’ve been playing with these peeps for over 10 years) planned to head back to WoW, I was down…like a clown. Back in the old days I use to play a healer first in Dark Ages of Camelot, then a brief tour of duty as a priest in World of Warcraft. Until I got burnt the hell out, that was like 7-8 years ago, I havent really seriously healed since then, sure I dabbled hear or there, but nothing serious until now.My guildies of old needed a healer, so I decided to go back to my role of healing bitch.

I’m glad we went Horde, I love the Horde, I played Horde for most of my WoW career. There is a certain mentality that is there that just isn’t there with the alliance. It’s not there as much as it use to be, back in the Vanilla days it really meant something that you played Horde, there was a brotherhood there of sorts. That attitude still lingers about sometimes, and it’s refreshing…..but with the Horde when things go wrong, they go horribly wrong. We start to turn on each other, and bicker it’s really horrible, but sometimes it’s like a train wreck I can’t turn away. ,

So my pally is a tanking Pally, and to make him into a healing pally, i bought some gear what I could, but i might as well be wearing wet towels. Lo and behold it’s Alterac Valley weekend, which meant I wouldn’t be poorly geared that much longer. I got 4/5 of my pvp healing set. Tonight I’m hoping to really rock it, and get my helm, weapon, and shield. even try for some feet. That way all i have to worry about is some trinkets, and a relic.

As for healing I’m no slouch, some of the old healer is left in me, just have to be more aware situational, and one thing I forgot. Don’t lead the charge, you suck at doing damage. I was laughing as I was charging for Van, all of a sudden I found myself in the Alliance base with nobody around….DOH!  Bottomline I’m having a bit of fun again in World of Warcraft, and looking forward to working on a warlock, and making some gold again, which I already started that ball rolling.  Oh and any Healing Pallies want to toss me a few tips feel free to leave them here.

Have Tank, Will Travel.

First off I want to thank Syp of Bio-Break for allowing me to do a guest post, to finish up his Blogsplosion 2011, some great posts from my fellow bloggers, here’s mine. It was fun doing it, and I love how Syp introduced me, but he should have used a more…erm..provocotive pic. So I decided to post one for him. Though Luke Perry is some nice…wait…nevermind.

My Pallie Tank is geared to Ilevel 349, I do have some cheater PvP pieces, helm, and shoulders to be exact, but ofr the most part I believe I’m ready to do heroics now. I just hope I am not full of fail, though part of me feels I should work on my mage now too. My guild is pretty set with it’s raiders, and I don’t really need to rush on anything. Though my Pally has a ton of work to do besides gear, like doing Hyjal quests to unlock Molten Front, which is chaffing my arse.

My mage also I’m not feeling the Worgen, I might switch him back to Human, because I really don’t like the way Worgen’s move around. When they run/walk they seem to be lumbering around. We’ll see.

People have alot of WoW hate right now, you know I’m having a decent enough time at it, at least it should keep me occupied until SW:TOR comes out.

So fresh and so clean clean

Posted in Gaming, MMORPG with tags , , , on June 17, 2010 by Bee

I have something I feel I need to confess. Not too long ago, I was a noob.

Why you ask? Well, before 80….

  • -The only spells that I would use key bindings for were #1-6.
  • -I never used mana burn, ever.
  • -I had only healed 1 and a half instances.

I was a good noob though. I was willing to learn, asked for help and researched my class online. I feel that today I am a completely different player. I key bound all of my spells – and although it did take a while – you can in fact teach an old dog new tricks. Now I’ve gotten pretty tough to beat in a duel, and I do a great job keeping people alive in instances.

Why do I have noobs on the brain? Well I’ve been leveling a baby ret pally. She is a spoiled brat. She has every piece of BOA gear that is appropriate, all the best enchants money can buy, and all the best possible gear available in the AH. Yeah I’m that moron that will drop 40g on a level 29 helm.

I feel that I am really getting the feel for playing a paladin and I like it a lot so far. It’s so nice to queue up as dps in LFG. It’s great to not be important. When I’m healing I always have to be paying attention. I can’t comment in guild chat, check facebook, or paint my nails. Now I have time to do all three!  And with consecration I’m still topping the dps charts.

All kidding aside, I feel the true test of any player’s skill is pvp. I have been queuing up for WSG and AB whenever I can. The only problem I find myself running into is a constant pull to want to heal. It disappoints me when we end a BG and I have top heals for the horde team. I guess it’s just hard to get away from what you know.

But guess what?  I’m still a noob.  A member in my guild is leveling a priest and he is at a similar level as my pally.  We were dueling the other day and he was using tricks and ideas I had never thought of.  Mind controlling me off ledges, fearing me out of the duel area – it was nuts. I feel like a noob all over again.

And in closing… some odds and ends….

I want to show some link love to Reversion at Looking For More. A few weeks ago he was asking for requests for his comic Corporate Raider. I have this guy at work who is soooo super annoying. Well… anyways… I’ll let it speak for itself.

 

I currently have that saved as the background image on my IPhone and I giggle every time I see it.

And now a short update, on our botting friend from last week. I did finally get my tailoring to 450, so I probably won’t be seeing much of him anymore – however I did make a few more trips to see him while leveling was still in progress. On my last visit, the man behind the bot showed himself.

Since i’m at work and forced to use MSPaint to edit my images – here is a larger size of the text only:

Yeah, I’m the bad one. :)
