The other day while I was catching up with my blog roll, I noticed something truly horrific. My husband, Disconcur, has been immortalised in comic form! Well, that wasn’t the horrific thing, yay for Disco! The horrific thing was his outfit: compared to the class and elegance of bloggers such as Navimie, Luxypie, as well his fellow raiders, my husband’s Paladin looked like it had been … Continue reading An Emergency Transmog For A Stubborn Paladin
One of my last tasks as Guild Master was to come up with a generic recruitment macro that the officers could post in trade every once in a while. It’s been successful from what I can tell; none of the officers have been harassed by trade chat trolls and the recruits all seem like a good fit. But, there’s one problem: a trade chat good … Continue reading Guild Macro Grammar Question
Stepping down as guild master can spell disaster for your guild if you don’t do it the right way. In this video I talk about how I went about handing over the reigns (Yes, that’s right, my guildies have finally let me retire!) to ensure that the guild and the incoming guild master are prepared for the transition. I even hypothesis over what to do … Continue reading How To Retire As A Guild Master
My Alliance guild has a dream: a dream to unlock the Stay Classy achievement. Not a guild to do things the “normal” way, our GM started a little Pandaren hunter and went about leveling in the most peculiar way; a way that many of us veterans may not even consider in this day and age. He isn’t wearing any heirlooms. He hasn’t stepped foot into … Continue reading Community Blog Topic: Is Leveling Too Easy?
There comes a time in every shaman’s life when battlegrounds may not be enough to sate your blood lust and you find yourself in awkward situations like creating a character on the Arena Tournament server to help hinder Luxy and Disconcur in their quest for the title. In my short time attempting not to suck, I have picked up some pretty important (and probably obvious, … Continue reading Three Things I’ve Learned As An Arena Newbie
Setting goals is something that is pretty foreign to me. Sure, I’ve set guild goals like, ‘let’s start raiding by x time’ or whatever, but on a personal level I have always been happy to just coast through life seeing where it takes me. Apparently I’ve grown up over the past few months or something, because I want to get shit done, and apparently adults … Continue reading Gaming Goals For June
I’ve done it! I thought, I’ve finally broken free of my eight year thrall to World of Warcraft! Time to start thinking about a new game to settle on, no more of this drifting nonsense. And then Disconcur called out to me from his lair in a panic. “My authenticator isn’t working and raid has started! Can you please log in to WoW and let Navi … Continue reading No! Not Troll Hut!
In old news, the Activision-Blizzard investor call has revealed that World of Warcraft lost 1.3 million subs since February. Then there is the Newbie Blogger Initiative Anniversary round up. Depending on the blog and the way they determined which blogs are active (Many round up posts included Healing Mains as active, for example, but the latest post is in fact a closing down notice), roughly … Continue reading Little Blogger Lost
It’s been over a month now since I quit raiding entirely, and so far I do not miss it. In fact, aside from the occasional BG on my Shaman, I have barely logged in at all. It’s been a combination of things; mostly real life issues which are thankfully now sorted out, as well as Mama Needs Mana taking up much of my free time. … Continue reading Guild Hosting: Who Should Pay?
…is NOT a Little Red Riding Hood outfit. I feel so dirty for even having this costume in my inventory 😦 Aside from the rather, erm, inappropriate purchase from Valkyron Outfitters (I had free EMP!), I am really glad that I have started playing TERA again. I had forgotten how much fun the combat system is, and what a sense of accomplishment I feel when I actually … Continue reading The Lady In Red Costume…
