Brawling My Balls Off

Posted in MMORPG with tags , , on March 24, 2014 by theerivs

boxing1This weekend even though I’ve been killing rare pvps for easy honor, and some warscouts, which I’m a little pissed off about I haven’t gotten the mount yet, stingy Zandalari bastards.  I’ve been working on my Brawling Guild Rep, and taking down opponents.

These fights are some pretty tough ones, which I’m surprised that they are, my Warlock and Blueberry Lord are doing their best, yes I had a hiccup here and there, if you’re a pure dps class like Rogue, or a tank like a Pally tank that doesn’t do much damage I don’t know how you would survive. I think Hunters, Locks, and DK’s are the only ones good at Brawling.

Anywho I’m at Level 5 now, I got the pet reward. It’s starting to get hard now, and I may need to start looking up strats. I really want the mount, will it kill me if I don’t get it? No…but I want it.


Get Your PvEness out of My PvP

Posted in MMORPG with tags , , , on January 31, 2014 by theerivs

daisy_de_la_hoyaUsually I write a lovely recap post today, but something irked me.  Belghast wrote a lovely post, which other bloggers touched on, and a forum post. which delves into the issue.  I really have one thing to say to that.


First off I am not a hard core PvP’er by any means….but I am a PvP’er as opposed to a PvE’er. I have to deal with your crappy PvE all the time…FOR YEARS!. Remember Alterac Valley….that little BG that’s been around for YEARS!. Yeah it has PvE elements in it, that I despise. Why? Why do I need to wait for tanks to tank general, why do I need to to go get the mines for resources.

Also why do I need to go PvE for some BiS slot items for PvP.  Really? I have to put up with Carebears, and snotty nosed know it all kids who just stopped suckling at their mama’s teet.

Oh…you get ganked once in awhile. I really hope I’m the one ganking these people…revenge is a dish best served cold, and I got years of pent up rage just from AV…yeah 10+ hour slug fests build up a lot of anger.  So deal with it, and move on.


Twerking It

Posted in MMORPG with tags , , on January 20, 2014 by theerivs

0So I’m twerking hard, reached 80, and about to hit 81 tonight I hope.

Couple things I’m going to mention.

I HATE THAT BEGINNING WATER ZONE! There is nothing in the World of Warcraft I think I hate more. I even hate that dungeon. It’s designed like poop, and it’s incredibly longer then it should be. I guess getting not some of the brightest players in there as well, does not help one bit.

The sooner I get out of Cataclysm the better, so I’ll be pressing the nose against the grindstone. In good news, I’m maxed out with Alchemy. I went with transmutation master, cause I like gold. Already back to making a positive cash flow.  I think I’ll work on Tailoring next.


Power Overwhelming

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

zach_warlock-pets-loveI didn’t reach 80 this weekend, but I did hit 76. I took the Grimoire of Supremacy talent, and I love my new demons, well except Shivarra, but I’ll get to that.

Fel Imp – I love his little sayings. “It’s my favorite warlock!”

Voidlord – Just looks Bad Ass with his armor on!

Observer – Haven’t had to much chance to play with him, looking forward to maybe PvPing with him a bit.

Shivarra – I want my old Succubus back, she is way hotter, and sexier, but I guess she has her uses.

I got to say though I’m really enjoying the class, even though I don’t have portals anymore, or free food or water I don’t really seem to need those things on my own. I’m a soloing monster, and I can hold my own on dps as Destro.  When I hit 90, I might have to eat my words to all those dirty warlocks, cause I’m quickly becoming one of them.

Warlords of Doldrums

Posted in MMORPG with tags , , , on November 11, 2013 by theerivs

when-hot-girls-get-bored-they-do-thisWell pretty much Blizz dropped a few things, some I’m looking forward to. I never played an MOBA style game, but I might check out Heroes of the Storm. I’m already loving Hearthstone.

I’ve played WoW since Beta, and this is the first expansion I was like ‘Meh’. I mean we’re going back to the past. Really? Seriously?

Do I like some of the things the expansion is bringing? Yes I do, I can’t complain about upgraded models, and the Garrison thing looks interesting. The rest of it, I really am unimpressed, it’s really pushing me in other directions like TESO, or Wildstar which I’m not really into either. I am just waiting for Camelot Unchained (Thanks @JShabbing), which can’t come soon enough.

Tell you the truth I think Blizzard will be phoning it in, and not doing a whole bunch of work until they get things with Titan hammered out.

I’ve got Huge Fireballs

Posted in MMORPG with tags , on October 7, 2013 by theerivs

jaina-proudmooreSo I entered Hearthstone, not knowing really what to expect. I have to say I was mildly pleased with what I played, despite I didn’t get to play enough due to an issue (which I’ll have to report tonight when I get a chance) .

I played basically the 6 first “missions” or games as a tutorial. First thing is I had fun, it wasn’t hard but I did have one challenge until I figured out a strategy. Which for me was really cool, I love when there’s a problem in a game, then I get an A-HA moment.

A couple of things, one was from my stupidity, other was a problem in game. I didn’t know some of the cards we’re minion cards since they had abilities. Like Raid Leader, I thought that was just a power card of some type. Until I caught on. The other issue, and where I stopped was that the game froze after the tutorial while I was trying to build a deck., I’ll log in tonight, and see if there’s still an issue, and if so report it.

Overall I had a bit of fun, there’s a lot of Blizzard humor here which keeps the game light hearted, and I really enjoyed blasting Illidan in the face with my Fireball…that bitch wasn’t prepared.

Missing Me Some Vanilla

Posted in MMORPG with tags , , , on September 17, 2013 by theerivs

icecream-girlWell The Noisy Rogue is posting some old school stuff on his blog and it got me walking down nostalgia lane.  I got the blogging bug in late 2007, but I didn’t start actually blogging myself until 2008. Here’s my first post about gaming.  I really do miss Vanilla at times, but I know I’m looking back on rose colored glasses sometimes.

6 Reasons I miss Vanilla WoW.

6. Society/Faction Pride – You had a server, and on that server you had community. I loved the fact you got to know people easier, and reputations were made, or lost by how you acted. You had pride in your faction, and would perk up when someone screamed “For the Horde!” or “For the Alliance!”

5. Epic Mount Meant Something.-  When you got one it was like a major achievement for me. Since to get it I had to pretty much corner the market on selling pets back then it was no easy feat.

4. The First TIme Ragnaros Popped Out – Just breathtaking and never seen anything like it in a game before.

3. Teamwork – Getting a 40 man raid, together and all working on the same page took great leadership, and great teamwork. It was awesome being on a team of mages, and the camaraderie we had.

2. Getting My First Epic – Now Epics are so commonplace it’s sick. I remember I was in all blues for quite some time, until one of my guild leaders gave me a present, it was a purple one handed axe. Not the best tanking weapon, but I used it with pride.

1. The Epic Battles – The Southshore/Tarren Mill battles, or the Crossroads battles were always fun and epic. I miss the hey day of World PvP.

I know there are probably alot more, but these are pretty much some of the major reasons I loved Vanilla, but like all things, WoW must change as well.

Holy Crusade

Posted in MMORPG with tags , , , on September 12, 2013 by theerivs

815249-bigthumbnailSo one of my favorite bloggers Bossy Pally updated her blog post.  At first I couldn’t find my blog in her blog roll. I was a little bummed. Then I saw my blog under Holy Paladins. It is true I do play Holy Paladin, but unlike my brethren I just PvP. I noticed not many bloggers of the Holy Paladin kind take part in PvP, or if they do I don’t see too much writing done about it.  As I consider it a HUGE honor to be on her blog roll. I felt remiss in my duties as a Holy Crusader of the Healing Arts, as I haven’t posted in a while on it. I’m going to rectify that, cause I am now on a holy crusade to get better PvP gear, and to help my new Alliance brethren.

Let’s start there. My old guild leader resurrected my very first guild on Alliance side of Garona. My very first toon was a Paladin, when WoW first started. I know glutton for punishment. When Battlegrounds came out, we left that guild behind, and started fresh horde side.  Well we’re back on the Alliance side.  I went with human male, I think humans just look the part of a Paladin.

I was a little upset at myself I wanted to stockpile more honor points. A couple things I noticed the Justice Points to Honor Points, and vice versa price has gone up . I remember it was 325 JP for 250 Honor. Now I think it’s 500. That’s just horse poop.  Anywho i had enough honor to buy two pieces, I got the Tyrannical Shield, and Chest piece.  I got some major trinket problems that is my next goal get better trinkets. I’m still rocking Dreadful…YUCK!

Gemming Priorities I think should be…

Int – For Mana Pool/Power

PvP Power – For well power

Spirit – for Mana Regen

Haste – For Speed.

Well I’m looking forward to rocking the heals, and sharing my crusade with you.

twins-wow-blondes-sexySo I got the Warlock to 58, and I have entered Outland. This place is as sucky as it was the first day I ever stepped into it. I never really was too nuts about it. I mean even when it was something new I was quickly bored with it. There was some parts I thought was cool, but for most of it it filled me with MEH.  Now it’s just a stepping stone to get me some more levels.

Though I enjoy the Warlock class, there is still something that is missing for me. I don’t know what it is, maybe it’s just the middle level malaise. Maybe I just miss my portals…those things are awesome.

It wouldn’t be a challenge, if I didn’t find it…. well….a challenge. I am determined to get my Warlock to 90…then I will make my decision.

My next project is to make a warrior. A friend of mine is teaching his girlfriend to play WoW, and I might help out. We’ll see…their playing alliance though…I would feel oh so dirty.

The Joys of a PvP Server

Posted in MMORPG with tags , , , on July 23, 2013 by theerivs

talladega-nights-the-ballad-of-ricky-bobby-20060804060738880Well one thing I did miss are some of the awesome unexpected surprises that are on a PvP Server. Back in the day (read Vanilla) I use to play a mage on Thunderlord, a PvP server,  and let me tell you, those were the days of high adventure. Well fast forward alot of my other time I spent on PvE servers so some of that fun was missing. Like I would go on ganking runs when I was upset, and just kill every noob I saw as I traversed the breath and length of Azeroth. Yes I gank, and yes I’m an asshole.

Well last night working on my Warlock, who was 51 was jumped by a level 46 rogue . I laughed, and I wish he could of heard me. So I crushed him into the dust. After a few minutes I was just running along….*BOOM* one shotted dead. As I look to the sky I see a 90 hunter flying away. As I lay in the dust, I contemplate going to get my mage and teach that mofo a lesson, but I figured he wasn’t worth the effort.

Cause I’m a Warlock, I got Soulstone BIOTCH!

Bottom line I really do like PvP servers better, it keeps me on my toes and adds a little drama into the mix.
