Patch 3.3 goodness

Posted in Uncategorized by Armagon on December 14, 2009

Tried out the Random Heroics tonight, very impressed. Lucky with groups, ok. But I’m so glad you can keep your cross-server group and just go on and on and on.

Didn’t really count my Emblems, but I think it’s been 7 Frost and about 40 Triumph for my Shammy:

  • Razorscale, Weekly Raid
  • ToC 10
  • “Daily” Heroic
  • Countless random heroics

Oh and we even managed to do Watch Him Die, Hadronox Denied and Zombiefest! in one group, quite awesome.

Mhm, Nightfall

Posted in WoW by Armagon on November 24, 2009

Yesterday was a strange day.

Came home from work, totally smashed, went to bed. The guild did ToGC10 and banged their heads against the faction champions (hey, what else? I bet Twin Valkyr will be easier).
At some point they had a Priest disconnect and not coming back, so they decided to go for S3D 10man. Luckily for me I had just woken up and got to power up my computer and WoW (thanks to the girlfriend in said raid) and so off we went to TOS.

After a few 20% wipes with unlucky Flame Waves and then summoning an Alchemist alt and handing out some Speed Potions, we nailed it.

On the one hand we’re happy, on the other hand it really feels cheated now, with much better gear (well, not for all of us, some are still knee-deep in Naxx gear). I think we really should have tried it more often half a year ago.

Anyway, one hour well spent, some 30g repairs each, 9x new “of the Nightfall” and one mount.

This was the lineup:

  • 1 DK tank who had already done it
  • 1 Holy Pally – healing
  • 2 Arcane Mages
  • 1 Blood DK
  • 1 Retri Pally kiting the first drake
  • 1 Elemental Shammy
  • 1 Destro Warlock
  • 1 Enhancement Shammy
  • 1 Assassination Rogue – yours truly

Achievements

Posted in WoW by Armagon on November 15, 2009

I admit it, I’m an achievement addict. My main is closing in to 7k and my 2 main alts are at 4500 and 3900, that’s a lot when I look at mains of some folks I know.

But everytime it comes to PvP achievements, I’m getting angry. My main is a Lieutenant General, rank 11 in the old PvP system. I’m not going to rant about missing rank 12 because of being offline for 1 week when moving, I know it was too time consuming. No, the problem is with the achievement system itself. According to my PvP achievements I hardly did anything. You know, I’m exalted with Frostwolf, Warsong Outriders and the Defilers, yet I only won 2-3 games each. Not 100. Well, I did, but no one can see it and I don’t get my points. Win AB 2000:1990? Of  course I did, I still have screenshots of that. Assaulted all 5 bases? Sure as hell I did.

Let’s have a quick look:

  • 100 AV wins – 20
  • 50 GY taken – 10
  • 50 towers defended – 10
  • Loot the picture – 10

And that’s only AV. So that’s probably 200 achievement points I will never ever get, because I’ve got my rep maxed, WG is better honor when I need it and I want to play some other class in pvp for a change as well. Meh.

World Events

Posted in WoW by Armagon on October 18, 2009

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.
