Nub No More

October 31, 2010

With the coming changes to guilds and raids and achievements, Duranub Raiding Co. is no more. The leadership has decided to invite all of DRC’s members who aren’t in House Stalwart to join us for Cataclysm. They’ve also decided to move to a strictly 10 man raid form. So this leaves quite a few questions in my mind, which can be boiled down to just one.
Will we have enough?
Will there be enough tanks and healers for more than 2 raids? Will we be able to support 2+ raids? I know I would love to get back to raiding again, bit will there be enough of everything to go around. Time and membership will tell us in the coming year.
The pre-expansion slump is in full swing for me now, however I have found a new time sink until 12/7. My lil doomkin. That’s right, I’ve finally got back to working on her. I found out a great way to power level myself also. PvP. That’s right PvP on a holiday weekend. Every time we would win a WSG, I either leveled up, or came close to it. By the end of the weekend, we had won 3 and lost 2. So for less 3 hours of game time, got almost 5 levels. Not too shabby if I may say so. Now if this coming weekend is AB, even better. 😉
So until next time don’t forget to reload, so you don’t run out of ammo.


The 4.0.1 Reboot Quest

October 12, 2010

So the big one landed this week. Good bye mana. Good bye everything we knew about being a hunter. Hello focus, and all the wonderful changes that will come with it and the end of the world as we know it. So far so good. All of my mods are so horribly broken, and i haven’t had a chance yet to look for updated versions of them yet. Now, I just have to relearn how to play a hunter again lol.
The first thing that I’ve been noticing is there’s a lot more to playing a BM hunter than there was before. I used to have the old version of Kill Command macro’d in to all of my other shots so I didn’t have to keep an eye on it. Now, it’s off of the macros and on to the tool bar. I’m setting new macros for Focus Fire instead, linking it to my shots and KC instead of keeping it on the bars. The other new macro that I’m using, is for Spirit Mend and Ancient Hysteria.

/target Gweninu
/cast spirit mend
/cast ancient hysteria

It combines both abilities in to one nice little button that will heal me or cast AH depending on which pet I have out at the time.
The other kinda big thing that I’m working on is finishing out swapping out my gems. I used to be gemed for armor pen, but with that gone, my crit rating is through the cap. I have all the cardinal rubies I need, I just have to finish getting my jewelcrafter high enough to cut them. So I need to get more transmutes and frozen orbs to finish it.
The other big thing coming up is BlizzCon. I won’t be in Aniheim, but I will be watching it online over the weekend if all go right. Lots to do and so little time, here’s to hoping I can get it all done in time.
So until next time don’t forget to reload, so you don’t run out of ammo.

Brew Fast… Brew Furious

October 6, 2010

Brewfest is almost over. I’ve been running the mount run every day. So far I’ve gotten 2 Tankards O’ Terror, 4 Shankers, and both Brewmaiden trinkets on all 3 of my 80s.
Now the mounts are a different story. I finally got the ram on Gweninu, and it looks damn sexy.



However, that kodo still eludes me.
Now Diakiaju, I’ve had more luck with him.


A gnome death knight on a black kodo. Your argument is now invalid sir..

Oh well, I still have 2 days left to try and get it on Gwen. So until next time don’t forget to reload, so you don’t run out of ammo.
