Mages Love Pallies and How to Die in Onyxia

...Or more specifically, how to make an Arcane Mage love you =)

Due to the buffs to Arcane in 3.2.2, my boyfriend went back Arcane as he had always been in love with that particular tree.

We've managed to rise high enough in the guild standings that we are regular raid members and I have the good fortune to raid consistently with him.

Basically, Sacred Shield + Incanter's Absorption is an absolute wet dream for him. I'm not one of the higher SP paladins in my guild (23-2600 SP depending on trinkets) and as 1 of 3 holy paladins in raid, I can toss SS on my honey guilt free!

So for any paladins that want to get in good with an Arcane mage, this is the way to a DPSer's heart!

Arcane mages, you better be nice to us paladins!

Come on, Phase 3 Anub'arak? Constant ticking damage being absorbed? OMG! My silly mage bf didn't check his SP during that part of the fight but considering that SS should absorb a decent amount, it is nothing to be scoffed at and I'm pretty sure he easily broke 3000 SP because of that phase.

Ridiculously OP.

We also did the revamped Onyxia 25 man raid. 22 slot Bag!


I was a little nervous to be honest as the only experience I had in Onyxia was fooling around in the instance at level 70 with a whole bunch of other 70s. How would the real raid instance be like?

I was quite afraid I would die to the infamous Deep Breath and feel like a noob.

Epeen in WoW

Nothing like a particularly grating incident to fuel the writing juices.

Ever since transferring over to my current server, I haven't regretted it as it is just a much more "happening" server, Horde wise. My old server really had people that were big assholes with the egos to match, though skill levels may actually not compare.

Today, I met my first douchebag.

I do not have screen shots or anything as I was pulled quickly into a Vault run right during the incident.

So there I was, minding my own business in front of the Dalaran Horde bank. How many of you just like to idle in front of banks? =P

Writer's Block

Even though it seems like I am overdue for a post (and I am), it is not for lack of trying. I have a couple of random, unfinished posts in my archive that I am stuck on because I got bored midway writing - you know that's a bad sign - or I felt it to be a pointless post. I'm churning out drivel!

So, I thought why not cop out and open questions for my readers about anything they would like to know excluding questions that would expose my identity of course. =)

I'll see if any questions I get require their own separate posts or if I should combine all the answers into 1 long FAQ post.

Go ahead and shoot!
Boo for mismatched gear!

Character Achievement Updates

I know that as an anonymous blogger, it is hard to see what I am up to in game. The most I have been able to offer in terms of spying potential is posting screen shots of my gear or achievements and linking my spec/glyphs via wowhead talent calculator as I can't link my armory so as to preserve my anonymity.

The bad part to this is that I keep finding myself changing gear slightly but the worse is the achievements as it's hard to keep it updated consistently.

If WoW Insider hadn't posted this article, I wouldn't have ever known there to be an alternative. That's why I've made a facebook profile for this blog. You can see a link to my facebook listing in the lefthand side of this blog on the sidebar.

Why a facebook profile? Well, so I can use Achieved (facebook addon) to announce any new achievements I get in game. I will try my best to keep that updated fairly consistently. Best of all, I can retain my anonymity!

Maybe in the future, I will feel more comfortable with revealing my in game character on this blog, but for the time being, I hope you all allow me this privacy.

Feel free to add me as a friend too!

P.S. I know this isn't a real post again. I'm considering different topics but they all don't seem particularly exciting to me.

Return to PVP

Ever since WotLK came out, my activities concerning PVP has greatly diminished. In TBC, I would run BGs with other people as a semi-premade and I discovered how fun WSG could be when I had despised it before.

I'm sad to say that in WotLK, I have played the new BG, Isle of Conquest, only once - no exaggeration. I just stopped doing BGs after they changed Alterac Valley and introduced the Strand. For whatever reason, I lost interest in doing BGs though we would rock them whenever we played.

As an arena player, I only did my requisite 10 games a week. In S6, that was the most I ever played but I only went up to 1000 rating in my 2v2 since me and my partner stopped playing as that was around the time we started pushing for more 10 man Ulduar hard modes.

So basically, PVE was sacrificed for PVP, not that I really cared as I was always more concerned about PVE rather than PVP. I was always an ultra casual PVPer.

What type of WoW player are you?
