21 Direbrew Kills – 2 Mounts

So far, in the first 3 days of Brewfest, I’ve done Coren Direbrew a total of 21 times on all seven of my level 80 toons, and netted two Swift Brewfest Ram mounts.  I had thought the ram was alliance only, and horde got the kodo, but evidently, you can get both on either faction.  Still …

Random Thoughts for September

I’m back to working on the guitar playing again.  I suffered a setback a little less than 3 months ago, when I broke a finger on my left hand, shattering a knuckle.  It was pinned back together, casted up, and seems to be well on the way to being healed.  I go for a follow-up …

Brewfest!

Brewfest has begun, and it’s a slight distraction while waiting for Cataclysm. Killing Coren Direbrew is about as easy as it gets.  Waiting up to 4 minutes in the queue and he dies in 18 seconds.  Get your loot bag and go home.  Two days in a row, I’ve done it on all sevel of …

Got my Tier 10 Shoulders

Skulfrak finally turned in his Frost Badges and picked up the shoulders to go along with his hat.  I think this will do it for my 80’s grinding toward things, as cataclysm is going to wipe all of this out.  When 4.0 hits, I’ll spend time re-learning each of the classes I play, but the …

Disintegrata

Go nastily amid the peace and tranquility, and remember what satisfaction there may be in genocide. As far as possible, without surrender, move into other people’s space. Lie often, and loudly; and listen to the lies of others, even the slow and incompetent — examples can be made of them later. Seek out meek and …

Patch 4.0 – This Changes Everything

I downloaded the Public Test Realm version of the game, and copied my characters over to try out patch 4.0, which gives us all of our new spells and talents.  Stats work differently now, and there are vastly improved character windows, spell books, and talent trees.  This is not the Cataclysm beta, so we don’t …

Weekend Review

I played on Skul a bit more this weekend.  No big raids, just some PvP and badge runs. I did very well in Alterac Valley.  As an Affliction spec, I kept my distance, and applied as many DoTs as I could.  I dropped my circle as often as I could, and several times it saved …

Step into the Arena

My wife and I made a 2v2 arena team yesterday, and tried our hands at some fast and furious PvP.  We called our team Skulls and Rockets (’cause we each have rocket mounts). We did pretty bad.  A shadow priest and a warlock for their first time in a bunch of the maps.  We were …

Face Down in Icecrown Citadel

I’ve been doing quite a bit on my main toon, Skulfrak, recently. Last night, I took him to ICC-25, and while my DPS numbers were great, I did horribly at dodging aggro, and ended up face down on the floor more times than I care to recall.  My repair bill totaled at the end almost 80 gold, …

At last- my arm is complete again!

I finally got the cast off of my left arm this week, and got some limited use of my left hand back again.  Two months ago, I broke one my fingers, and broke it good.  Real good.  I shattered a knuckle, and it had to be held together by pins in order for it to …
