L2Ret – The Cataclysmically Large Ret FAQ for 4.1

In cataclysm, blizz’s sole goal with ret was to make it a much more complex play style. And by and large, they succeeded. Gone are the times where you can faceroll your way to competitive, chart topping dps. What takes its place is a true rotation, with the flavor of the old rotation, a kind … Continue reading

Wow, Already A Month!??!?! And More Random Thoughts

Holey moley, it seems like time is spinning out of control for me.  It’s already been more than a month since my last post.  ARG! WTB more time, that does not slip through my hands like water! Anyway, its been a good month.  I have gotten into heroics and raids.  Haven’t tried a single attempt … Continue reading

Sindragosa’s Fall, And 4.0 Class Impressions

As of late, I have been busy outside of all things WoW, reading Blink!, by Malcolm Gladwell.  Why do I bring this up?  Well a few reasons.  First of all, it is a REALLY good book.  It is about the power of snap judgements, and how you can learn to trust them, or distrust them. … Continue reading

State Of The Blog, And The Dreaded .01% Wipe

Hello Peeps! Long time no see, right? So, yeah.  Busy busy busy, as usual.  Work is crazy.  And something (well, maybe I should say someone 🙂 ) has been drawing my free time and attention.  But I will strike a balance, it just takes time.  But I have not closed shop, and will not close … Continue reading

Is Your Tanking Team A Partnership?

I’ve mentioned before that my sister is one of our main tanks in the guild.  She wasn’t always a tank, rather her main toon is a hunter that she desperately misses.  But, simply put, her tanking skills are second to none.  She tanks most often in our raids with another of our main tanks, Mawl. … Continue reading

A Lack Of Communication…

As I mentioned a short time back, my guild has been going through a bit of a spit about raiding.  I wouldn’t call it drama.  I wouldn’t even call it a spit, if I had a better word.  It is more like growing pains. Many of your chimed in with support, and I thank you. … Continue reading

Building A Better Raid – Decisions

Internets, last weekend was a not so good time for me. Unfortunately, there is a specific subset of guildies that have been feeling upset for a while. And apparently, last weekend was when they had felt they wanted to voice it once and for all. Which is fine. The part I a so upset over … Continue reading

Recycled Post Day – Why The Hybrid DPS Tax Isn’t Working

Zelmaru gave me a completely good excuse to skive off writing a totally new post today.  Today being Earth Day, and all, Zelmaru decided that it was a good idea to recycle blog posts.  And so I am. The particular one I am recycling is not because I think that it hasnt gotten traffic.  It … Continue reading

Why Would Selling A Mount Be Bad?

So by now everyone has seen (or at least heard about) the new celestial steed that Blizz has been bloody brilliant at selling. For the record I got one too.  They are very nice mounts. And as usual, I was perusing wow.com yesterday after work and I came upon a poll that actually shocked me. … Continue reading
