How Long have you /played?

I’ve been playing Wow for about five years.  On Ryshiel at level 85…

Total time played: 49 days, 16 hours, 20min, 5 seconds

Time Played at this level: 11 days, 8 hours, 21 minutes, 5 seconds

What are the names of your other alts?

Zennie – (85) Gnome Warlock

Stufdifiknow – (57) Human Hunter

Therwyn – (65) Human Mage

Nadiir – (80) Draenai Death Knight

…and various baby toons to numerous to list. I get bored easily 😛

What do you like the most about playing WOW?

The social aspect – I love having a few drinks and mucking about on vent with my awesome guild whilst raiding on a Saturday night 🙂

What do you dislike the most about playing WOW?

PUGs. I hate PUGs. Specifically, getting abused by fail PUGs because they did something stupid and I let the group wipe. Apparently its always the healers fault!

Out of all of Azeroth what is your favourite place and why?

Uldum. I’m obsessed with anything remotely Ancient Egyptian!

If you could change one thing about WOW, what would it be?

Longer time-delay penalty for PUG’s who leave groups after one wipe. (I know Blizz could track that somehow!) Patience is a virtue, people!

Any last words?

Be nice to your healer.  It is unwise to piss off the person who holds your repair bill in her hands.


Heal Me!

I recently found an interesting discussion on Healers that use addons vs Healers that don’t and what addons they are using if any.  This sent me on a mission to see what other healing addons people are using. One particular blog raves about Quartz & Visual Heal. Grid and Clique  is another combination that kept popping up & the following clip shows you how they work (first 3 mins VERY relevant after that it become mind numbing boring) –

For those that like Healbot the following tutorial is simple & comprehensive. I highly recommend it –

And finally all these healing addons and more can be found at Curse.

As a homage to the creative talent at Blizzard and their fantastic artistry, Ill occasionally post a ‘Where is…” poll.  Do you know where this beautiful place is?

Casual Guild Raiding in Firelands

Tankspot always has great vids on many raids and during their current Q & A episode they offer some great advice for casual guilds and tackling Firelands. Highly recommended viewing! They also discuss avoidance, why Tankspot doesnt do 10man videos, sitting out for raid progression, playing the spec you want to in raids and a bunch of other cool things.

Joystick have also released a great blog entry for noobie players who are not too sure how to approached the Firelands content.

The Original and STILL the Best…

For those of you that always wanted to know where the term ‘Leeroy Jenkins’ originated from, here it is –

Rogues Corner…

Rogues are the best close quarter melee damage class in WOW. Ok, now that I have your attention ( and no doubt an inbox full of vitriol from pallys, warriors, DK’s and druids) Rogues are an hugely entertaining class to play, with high dps & unusual skills they are invaluable to most raid teams and lethal in PVP.  I’ve put together some links for guildies that might be interested in rolling a Rogue or updating some of their knowledge base.

The Ultimate WOW Song

Recently I’ve had some misadventures on YouTube looking for the ULTIMATE WOW SONG. My favourite is published below but if you have any that you think can top this, please send me the link at and Ill publish it!

Awesome advice found by Bruxa. A MUST for all Huntards!
