L2Ret – Lifting The Mists – MoP Ret FAQ for 5.1

As promised, once I got the hang of things and back into the swing of things, I was going to post a new Ret FAQ.  Unless mechanics change, this will likely be the only FAQ I make for Pandaria.  I have kept the same format, and many of the questions are exactly the same as … 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

Lamenting On The Death Of Uniqueness

This week we have seen a few things crop up on the PTR. We of course have seen the new heroics, ZG and ZA. ZG was my first ever raid, even if not done as a proper raid. As such, it holds a special spot in my gaming memory. But I can’t help but help … Continue reading

First Impressions Of Cataclysm Healing

After dinging 80 a few days ago on my baby shaman, I decided to take her into the realm of cataclysm healing. I have only experienced one dungeon so far, Blackrock Caverns, on fire as DPS of course. That was less than stellar. To be frank, I died every single time. So I figured I’d tackle the heal game on the … Continue reading

If Gear Were A Bit More Like iPods

I love iPods.  I own 4.  Well, technically 2.  But I have 2 iPhones (one the original generation, one a 3g), so they count as iPods as well, right? It’s extremely interesting sitting in a crowded airport terminal watching everyone.  They fidget with this and that, electronic device after electronic device, but the most common … Continue reading

The Day of the Whiny Post

Klepsacovic declared it national whiny post day today.  And far be it from me to go against the grain. Larisa touched on the loneliness aspect of gameplay today, and Spinks wrote about progression raiding, and the likeness to work. By sheer coincidence I am going to whine about both. I mentioned in a recent post … Continue reading

L2Ret – The Cold Hard Truth About Diminishing Returns

Wait…  What? I thought diminishing returns was something only tanks had to deal with? Well, yes and no. As a game mechanic, yes, tanks are the famous ones, but they are not the only ones.  Ever heard of a haste “soft cap”?  That is a diminished return as well, if you use haste past the … Continue reading

The Epic Pally Finally Got Something….

Everyone who has been around the blog-o-sphere lately, I am sure has noticed the predominance of FailPug stories.  Not only because of the new LFG finder, but because it is a shared topic on “Blog Azeroth.” Everyone enjoys a FailPug story as the next person, but rather than posting another rant, I’d post a fun … Continue reading

Quick PSA on Endgame Weaps

For those of you who are looking around at endgame weapons from lichiepoo, just a quick PSA about the two top 10 man raiding weapons for Ret Pallies – Quel’Delar (might of the faithful, of course.  Don’t dare let me catch you with the Agil iteration of that beautiful sword), and Warmace of Menethil: The … Continue reading

Random PSA’s

Alright, here we are in a new year, ready to rip roar our way through our resolutions, be it in game, or out.  One of the most popular is, of course, getting in shape.  I wouldn’t have ever mentioned anything except TJ, one of those bloggers that I always read, and really need to add … Continue reading
