The Patch of QQ, Hallows End, and Wifey!

So far, this patch has produced more QQ than any in a while. Everywhere in tradechat wha wha wha they broke my class. Learn to deal with it and move on. My Warrior prot DPS went way down. I can still tank. It is just a little bit harder.

One think I am really enjoying is the new DK frost spec. Wearing complete garbage gear, I pumped out 4300 in DTK. Just retarded. I am going to play the hell out of him until he gets nerfed.

On to Hallows End. This Holliday is fun, but some of the acheivements are so damn long and boring. Doing Trick or Treat at every single place sucks ass. Yet I am going to give it a shot. All of my toons now have the Sinister Squashling. And Darraxus now has the Reigns of the Horseman. Thank god. I got all kinds of mounts on my alts for Brewfest and crap for Darr.

And now about Wifey. My wife is back to playing WoW. She decided to start up a new character and level it herself to better learn the game. She rolled a little Paladin named Beezzie. So far so good. Level 27 and done mostly on her own besides a few higher level quests.

I now have my mage at level 70 after much neglect and my bank Rogue is level 50. I generally only like leveling them when I have rested XP.

Well thats it for now. Until nest time, stay classy Blogdiego.

Patch so Far

I haven't had a ton of time to play, but it has certainly been different.

I made 12k over the first two days selling glyphs. Looking at another 3-5k today. My only regret was not turning all of my inks into glyphs prior to the patch. Now they cost 3 ink each.

I actually ran an instance on my Warrior. While it felt more or less the same, it also felt a bit foreign. One thing I definately noticed is about a 400 dps loss in prot spec.

Once I try out some of the other new things I will write it up.

In the meantime Im going to keep on making that money :)

What have you guys been doing since the patch hit.

The Good Ole Days?

Everyone talks about the good ole days when it comes to WoW. There is often times nostalgia, especially around the end of an expansion. The truth is that it wasnt always the good ole days.

Back in Vanilla and even as fresh 70s in BC, the instances were hard. Like really hard. Scholmance was a several hour run to get to the end. Tanking as a Warrior with no AOE ability wasnt fun either.

Shadow Labrynth in BC was a nightmare. The first time I got through it I think we had 11 wipes and it took us over 4 hours. It was ridiculous. Had to do it though just to get the key fragment to eventually get into Karazhan.

BC and Vanilla would cock block you at every turn. This generally applied to raids during those periods. In my BC guild, we spent about a month at Moroes, and month at Curator, and a month at Shade of Aran.

It wasnt easy. By comparison, people were pug clearing Naxx in no time at all.

The good ole days were fun. But that was mostly because of the company I was in. Hanging out with friends is the bread and butter of this game, and it doesnt change at all.

The only good thing about getting Donkey Punched by instances was the joy of finally completing it.

If 5 mans are going to take 4 hours to do like they did back in the day, I am not going to be very happy. Who has that much time to spend? Who wants to spend it all in a single 5 man instance?

Surely not me.

So wish not for the good ole days. Just hope that your friends are along for the ride and whatever content they throw at you will be alright.

New Patch....back to the 5 man grind?

Now I must admit that 5 man instances are one of my favorite things in the game. Especially when you can grab a friend or 4 and laugh along the way. I admittedly have stopped doing them for the most part.

Why? Because there is no incentive to do them. I enjoy doing some of the older content given that the rewards are basically the same to me.

I think the new patch is going to get people back into the instances. The bosses will be dropping justice points instead of emblems which means that you will be able to use the rewards for level 85 gear. It is a great way to get a head start on Heroics is Cataclysm.

This likely means that I will be running them again which gives me a good excuse to finish the glory of the hero acheivements. I am not that far off currently, but just could not bring myself to do it.

Here comes Darraxus to smash some face.

Eff you Direbrew....right in your A

Yeah. Nothing at all for my Warrior. I got one remote, three of the BOE maces that are now worth nothing, three Kodos and a Ram. My Paladin got a Kodo AND a Ram. My warrior got buttfvcked.

As of late, I have mostly been helping some friends get their mid 70 toons close to 80. I have also been leveling my mage Crispee.

I deleted my level 63 rogue. I saw no need for two rogues and could not bring myself to delete my bank toon who made me a fortune.

My mage is doing as much dps at 66 as some level 80 toons I have seen.

I am looking forward to the next big patch for one big reason. My last big gold scoop. Everyone is going to be buying glyphs and Im gonna be the one supplying a little drug dealing gnome.
