Time to be Crafty

I’ve been working on my paladin a bit more this week, enjoying the instant queues as a tank.  I’ve also been taking this time to get more advanced on my crafting skills on my main server while I wait for cataclysm.  I have a 450 tailor, scribe, jewelcrafter, and a 441 enchanter.  About a week …

Tanking Shortage

Expanding a little bit about what I was talking about yesterday, I’m wondering why there is a shortage of tanks in the game.  There are probably a few factors that contribute to the overall problem. People are too impatient, and make the job harder than it has to be. I have tanked almost every instance …

Tanks for Tards

I kid of ran out of steam last night. I finished up all my tournament dailies on Skulfrak, and stood in Dalaran watching trade chat. I was hoping to get into a Malygos (Eye of Eternity) weekly, or maybe ICC. The chat was so elitist though, gear checks, scores, link achievements, etc. PuGs are not …

Skuls & Rockets

Last night, Skulfrak finally got his X-51 Touring Rocket mount – the two-seater reward from the recruit-a-friend program.  My wife’s shadow priest, Skullfraxen, has the extremely rare X-51 Nether Rocket already, so we make quite the pair showing off in Dalaran.  I wish I could have this on all my toons istaed of just one, …

The Gearing Up

Yesterday, my tauren warrior I rolled in March, Squood of Steamwheedle Cartel US, dinged 80 in Icecrown.  He was at the top of the PvP and non-heroic dungeon finder brackets, and suddenly he’s at the absolute bottom of the level 80 crowd.  He got wtfpwned in Wintergrasp and battlegrounds, and ended up face down on …

Two more to go!

My tauren warrior Squood, on Steamwheedle Cartel US, dinged 78 this morning.  That means it’s time to start collecting some Wintergrasp tokens! On this realm, the horde is pretty overwhelming.  It usually controls Lake Wintergrasp for most of the day, with the alliance slipping a win or two in the very early morning.  Most of …

Heart of the Wizard

Looking ahead to jumping back into my comics work this week.  I ordered a few books from indyplanet.com to check out how their printing is, and browsed a bunch of online comics to see what’s out there now.  I’m about half way finished with the next issue of Shanghai, and I’m not quite sure I …

Squood enters the Tournament

I got my tauren warrior Squood to 77 last night, which means this morning he started on his Argent Tournament dailies in Icecrown.  I also cleaned out the Shadow Vault and started him on the Knights of the Ebon Blade rep grind.  He’s getting so close to the top! 🙂

Skill up, stupid!

This morning, I didn’t have a great deal of time, so I did a bit of minor questing on my level 76 warrior Squood in Northrend.  I switched to Fury spec, and got my 2-handers out with Titan’s Grip, only to discover that I’ve been severely lacking in skill with those weapons.  I haven’t used …
