No news is good news? Why yes…

Posted in WoW by Armagon on January 31, 2010

Long time no update, then again not much happened.

My Mage hit 80 at some point in time recently, got 2T9 today. Otherwise just running a few daily randoms and trying to gear up my Alliance Rogue. Not really much play time in general, busy with uni stuff.

My Mage has been Frost for 80 levels, with a 2h Fire intermezzo at about level 29.

Here’s a shoutout to krizzlybear, who has a nice Frost Mage Raiding Cheat Sheet available.

Sadly this got online about 48h after I finishes my research. Bah, slacker. No seriously, go read it. It’s very good. Apart from the one comment that calls the Arcane rotation less complicated than Frost. I can’t think of anything simpler than casting Frostbolt and watching out for one proc.

Patch 3.3 Rogue Starting 80 Gear

Posted in WoW by Armagon on January 12, 2010

So, you got an alt Rogue that needs some gear and you’re neither in the mood for detailed research nor striving for absolute perfection? Then this post may be for me you. (Yes, usually I’m not going for “good enough”, but my main is a 80 Rogue, so spare me some slack on my alt 80 Rogue.)

Not going to bother with rep rewards and blues, although they might be slightly better, sometimes they’re not as easy accessible due to rep grinds. This might be reworked.

Yes, there’s two tank weapons in there. Don’t you dare roll need over a tank, even off-spec.

But before sharding, take em and toss your party 20g. Same goes for ranged weapons.

New Addons and randoms

Posted in WoW by Armagon on January 9, 2010

Running my daily randoms whenever time permits, DPS/Tank/Healer at 80 and Mage at 79 for Triumph and XP.

So far still happy with all the randoms, apart from a weird tank every now and then or DPS where I do more DPS on my Rogue than the 2 others, it’s fine.

When I installed RankWatch, first out of curiosity how much hits I would get, I thought people might be pissed, until now one person didn’t respond and I’ve already got like 10 “Thank You”, because they seemed to have misplaced stuff on their bars, dinged 80 recently and forgot to train or were lost in dualspec 🙂 Nice addon.

On my tank I’ve jumped the bandwagon and tried Tidy Plates and Threat Plates, quite nice for trigger happy DPS in heroics.

Over and out.

A tale of Bagspace

Posted in WoW by Armagon on January 6, 2010

I’m one of the people who can’t ever have enough bagspace. Seriously.

I just stumbled upon this nice post by KarthisAndrew of Teeth and Claws, back when he played WoW. I’ve not so much got raiding stuff in my bags nowadays, but it’s still full. Basically on every character I have, and it’s not that I abuse all my alts as bank characters. 70 Hunter – Leather, 70 Priest – Enchanting mats, 70 Warlock – all Northrend food, 7x Mage – Engineering mats, 80 Shaman & Druid – Herbs, 80 Warrior – Ore and Bars, 6x Paladin – Gems and JC mats… No wonder they’re all mostly full. Then the older characters (Rogue, Warrior and Druid especially) have a bank full of old Tier gear I don’t want to delete or sell and a ton of other stuff. Soo glad mounts and pets are spells nowadays.

But let’s get to the gory details:
