Blue 42 Y right X flat on 2.

I'm never gonna learn this playbook...

Are you ready for some football?!?  Yes, the season has started, albeit through the virtually meaningless month that is preseason football.   The only real benefit to this set of games is that I can check out a few of my sleepers that I hope to draft in my fantasy football league. (side note, we should start an OverRaided/TGT fantasy league…if anyone else is interested).

And this is the one part of the year where I can cheer as my Cleveland Browns beat up on the Packers.  Yes, Green Bay, our starters can kick the crap out of your 3rd stringers.  However, if you are not a football fan, (A) you are missing out, and (B) I promise to get to some WoW-tastic blogging shortly.

Have you /hugged your guild today?

September 2, 2011 Leave a comment

The other day I was thinking back to the time when I first started playing World of Warcraft.  The Dire Maul patch (1.3) had just been released and everyone was abuzz about what this new exciting instance had to offer.  The funny thing is it’s hard for me to remember specifics about what else the patch actually contained.  As I slowly move forward through my memories of all the various changes that have happened in the game, I’ve found thatwhenever I can remember something specific, it is because of how it affected someone in my guild at the time.

August 30, 2011 Leave a comment

This week’s article about maximizing in game time is all about the add-ons. These add-ons make our daily tasks/interests easier and quicker to complete. The main three (because all great lists are comprised of three things) add-ons that I will be recommending to the general population of Warcrafters are Reforgelite, Gathermate2, and Advanced Trade Skill Window. Let me describe each of the above add-ons and how they can benefit you in game by reducing time spent on what you would normally be doing.

Min/Max Time: Decked to the Nines

Today’s article is going to be breaking a little from the norm of maximizing your new gear, experience and financial gain in comparison with time. Today I am going to delve into one of the most captivating parts of the 4.3 news that we have heard so far, Transmogrification (here on referred to as Transmog or Mogging if I get truly lazy).

RPGenius: Rolling your toon

Mr.T

I pity the fool who ain't rollin with the Mohawks!

In the beginning, the Old Gods created the toons, and it was good.

Then they created the stamina, to sustain the toons, and it too was good.

After this, the Old Gods created the boars to allow the toons to use their stamina and skill, and it was good.

Then they created the rogues, and everything went to hell.

I don’t remember the exact date when I started living life as a game, and I don’t remember the exact event that caused this part of my soul to awaken.  What I do know is that my dad is probably to thank/blame for this.

Will Pandaria ever be founded in Azeroth!?! You can hit conquest cap without doing rated BGs!?!? All this and more on this “Blogisode” of Stable Talk!!! Read more…
