Shaman: Introduction

Posted in WoW by Armagon on October 19, 2009

Hi, I’m a Shaman!

My latest level 80 character is a female Orc Shaman I levelled as Enhancement and switched to Elemental/Restoration at some point close to 80. The most notable trait is probably the (for me uncommon) low Achievement point score of 1995 (and that’s after some time at 80 and inevitable stuff) and a “Bloodsail Admiral” title I’ve not worked much for thanks to a certain Druid that let me tag along 🙂

Spreadsheets

As much as I appreciate people making Spreadsheets I could slap ’em every time I see a new one.

Seperation of logic and presentation.

It’s like when a doctor sees you touching a wound with dirty fingers, it’s like a construction worker sees you running on rusty nails in sandals. It makes us programmers cry. STOP IT.

I know it’s harder to create a website or write a module for Rawr – but it’s better. People don’t have to adjust their spec, gear, enchants, gems every time you update your spreadsheet. No, just enter the name and server and click “import”.

Still all the great minds of theorycrafting seem to prefer crappy Excel spreadsheets. Bonus points if it doesn’t work in OpenOffice. More bonus points if you start to drop T7 quality stuff because they have better gear now. You may as well not release it at all then, thank you.

On the other hand we have the people who make websites but get the formulas wrong. Seriously, start cooperating…

Can’t stay away from the Voodoo. Seriously, I love them. Sometimes only to dust off some lowbie alt. (I most often refer to them as the “Army of Alts[tm]“) and have some fun and getting fancy titles and rewards.

My effort of the last years paid off already, I managed to get  the Brewmaster title 9x some weeks ago. And that was with less effort than some people had because I got the first achievement about 5min after logging in. OK, it involved some summoning magic into BRD, but it didn’t take long. Level 70 Brewmaster alt ftw.

Anyway, now it’s Hallow’s End. My main has it, of course (only missing the silly christmas hat for my violet drake :/), so the focus is on those:

Will probably pass on everything else besides trying to get the mount on my main, anyway, 2 fun weeks ahead when raiding is a bit boring, although I hope we can get some 25man action again.

Hello World

Yes, this is it, hello world of WoW blogs.

The blog has been sitting around for a while, now let’s see if I can fill it.

Still fiddling with the details, I’m used to using Serendipity.
