Growing Pains: Low-level Tanking

September 22, 2011 2 comments

I just wanted to take a short opportunity to further elaborate on a topic that came up on The Guardian Tank two weeks ago. Eldoric was describing how low level tanks could expect their heals to come (i.e. A lot of HOTs from droods, shields from priests, shamans being good at AOE heals). I would like to further that idea when it comes to low-level dungeon tanking. Having been taking all the healing classes through dungeons and taking all but a bear through tanking as well, I have noticed similar trends no matter what I choose to play that day. Join me as we look at how you will be healed and what you can expect so that you can punch bad guys harder.

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.

Loremaster Legends: In the Beginning…

So, for this first ever blog post of mine, I thought I’d break down the lore, from the beginning, and work my way forward through the timeline, to create a general sense of comfort for those not quite familiar with how dates work in the Warcraft universe and when things happened. This will provide a clear, accurate, chronological order of the events connected to game we all love to play.  Forgive me if I throw in bits from the RPG books, since those just recently got declared non-canon. If you have a particular subject you want me to write about, however, I’d gladly skip ahead/back/sideways to cover it, or will have an episode done about it on the podcast as soon as we can. But, enough jibba-jabba as a certain Night Elf Mohawk might say.  On with this post’s legend:  The Titans!

Min/Max Time: How Archeology can help with Queue times

There are many Warcraft players out in the community that cannot be at their computer for endless amounts of hours. Some of us can only be in Azeroth for a couple hours each day or for specific blocks of time throughout each week. I am a family man with two kids and a loving and beautiful wife. Needless to say I have a limited amount of time to spend in the game. So we are here to answer the great question “How can I get the most out of the precious time I have in game?”
