Sanity ftw

Posted by Smith on February 19, 2008

Guild is rocking sox right now. We downed Hydros in SSC and took Leo the blind down to 8% on our third attempt. We will be getting Leo down this Wednesday, I’m confident (we’ll lose the protection specced warriors who can’t down their inner demons). Void Reaver in TK is also on farm and guildies are starting to load up on the Tier5 shoulder goodness :D.

Hydross guild first down

Gruul Down and still playing

Posted by Smith on January 15, 2008

So as we continue through the paces of raiding we’re actually progressing, crazy eh? The great thing is that we’re progressing normally. We’re pretty much finished with Karazhan, we only run it for alts and stuff twice a week. We have cleared Gruul’s on our second night.

Christmas was nice, but I’m back

Posted by Smith on January 10, 2008

Christmas was long and busy and I have really been incognito both on WoW and on the web. I had my entire family visit (4 sisters and their husbands and kids) it became a really full house. So Sorry that I haven’t posted up anything all at in a long time.

now for Character sheet, over Christmas I have only really been playing my horde alt because they’re not as time consuming as 70s to do anything. You probably don’t know about this alt because hes been under the radar and unimportant until now. He dinged 45 last night and has a nice panther for a pet. Hes a BE (of course), there are so many as of late.

Nightbane is Down and I’m Keeping Busy

Posted by Smith on December 14, 2007

Progress with my new guild has been exciting, we have 3 raid groups each week on Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday. The other week we downed Prince for the first time as you can see in my previous posts. Our raid group (Wednesday) has had good success, we have downed Nightbane and cleared all of Karazhan in 5 hours with the exception of Netherspite. We are trying our best to make sure one raid group isn’t progressing faster and leaving the others behind but Wednesdays group seems to be slipping ahead. I imagine we will be rotating spots around to make sure everyone has a fun time and doesn’t feel left out. One of our mages, Kiwifruit has been gearing up like crazy to be our mage tank for the Gruul fight and is really nervous.

I love Opera, but not that much…

Posted by Smith on November 11, 2007

New update to the readers, the guild has been knocked up a notch on the server in my opinion. While sadly I could not attend Saturday’s raid, they continued on from the Maiden of Virtue’s cold body. They progressed to the Opera event where the guild took one wipe of practice and during the second attempt it wasn’t looking good. I’m going to copy and paste some quotes from the second attempt:

we were on our way to a wipe
and bigandtasty (Raid leader) was like “guys wipe plz…”

and Ragnax and Romiras were like, “HELL NO WE TAKIN HIM DOWN”

and we did, with 2 survivors a shadow priest and MS warrior

They made it all the way to Curator where they packed it in for the night. It was a very epic evening. I am really excited to be there for the next raid and I will get some screen shots of the new bosses once I can take some next friday. Once we get some practise we as a guild should be able to start taking down one new boss a week and at least up to the Opera event in the first four hours of the raid each friday.

Movie intro

Posted by Smith on November 8, 2007

So as part of my internship Bryght I feel that I should have a deliverable. Something to show off after spending my time working here. so my initial thought was something about warcraft, then my parents suggested something for Ali (my professional singer sister who is trying to reach the top) like a website or something. I have decided to mix my ideas and create a music video for Ali using the world of warcraft. No work has been done yet, this is the preliminary post of my thoughts.

Patch 2.3 and Season 3 release date Announced

Posted by Smith on November 7, 2007

 Patch 2.3 is scheduled to go live on November 13th. The Public test realms are live with the new patch currently, you can copy your toon over to take a look. The new season is going to be released 1 week after patch 2.3. Blizzard has announced that the dates aren’t set in stone but they are “pretty sure…” it will be released on time. Season 3 and the patch are separated by 1 week to help the blizzard team focus on one thing at a time, there are bound to be bugs that will need everyones attention for at least a week. The older season 2 items are going to be reduced in price to the same as season 1 currently is. While season 1 is going to be removed from the arena system and placed into the regular Battleground gameplay.

With the coming of the new season all arena teams will have their rank reset to 1,500 and titled players will have their titles usurped. The new personal rating stat is going to be exactly the same as team rating except it’s only going to include games that you attended, not the entire team. Blizzard has left a post here for those looking to read more.

Player vs Player

Posted by Smith on October 9, 2007

Fealheal is approaching 65, and it is more apparent that I need a plan of attack to get good gear when I reach 70. My guild leader Xwizitrod is excited to have another 70 priest in the guild and has invited me to join the guild 5v5 arena team with a current rank of 2315. This is tempting because the season 2 arena gear is comparable to the tier 5 raiding set and in my opinion it is easier to obtain. If we maintain our rank I will earn 12,000 arena points (enough to buy entire season 2 set + weapon) in 10 weeks. My spec will remain shadow for the time being. I feel that I can do more as a damage player then a healer. I’m very excited to see how my priest will fair in an arena experience.

the arena and raiding armor sets can be seen here!
