RPGenius: Tanking Skuul’s Lair

September 28, 2011 1 comment

School

Back to school to prove to dad I

Time to cue in some old skuul Tupac, most specifically his song “Changes.”   World of Warcraft fans are getting inundated with a plethora of game modifications to come on the way to, and possibly before and after, patch 4.3 is dropped.  Darkmoon Island, three new story heroics, a final expansion raid against Deathwing himself, new tier loot art releases, a major overhaul to the role of tanking, and, most importantly, PANDAS!  Seriously, pretty sure Blizzard is just trolling us with panda teasers, but it is fun nonetheless.

RPGenius: Orcs play linebacker

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.

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.

Min/Max Time: Dailies and Grouping FTW

Today I wanted to delve into two ways of viewing the same part of WoW. A great deal of time that is spent at max level can be and often is dedicated to running the dailies. In order to Min/Max our time in game it is crucial to either complete a task in the fastest manor possible or multi task so that you beat two night elves with one totem. Here are two ways of making sure that this happens while completing your dailies.

RPGenius: My Warlock Rolls Need on Plate

NINJA!

I shall take your plate as my own!

Wow, you read my first post, and it didn’t scare you away!  For those of you that loved the theme of my first post, I’m going to totally disappoint you, since I’m going to go a little off topic today.  I have a few life lessons, reasons to do your homework, and some Warcraft ideas.

First of all, Amy Winehouse was found dead in London this past weekend.  Very sad story, but not at all unexpected from her past antics and unwillingness to recognize the path she was traveling.  You can only burn yourself out so much before it takes its toll.  How does this tie into a Warcraft blog?  Read more…

RPGenius: Everyday is an Epic Quest

Firelands is not for fishing

Ever since I can remember, I have felt like I’ve been incomplete.  Not in a bad, depressing way, but in a way that makes me feel like I should be doing something additional to fill gaps.  Then, when I would find something new, be it a new skill, school project, or video game, I would dive into it with fanatic veal, devoting my very being to its completion.  Yes, the completion: that ever-approaching goal on the horizon, simultaneously beckoning me toward its glorious light and taunting me that I hadn’t already completed the journey.  There I am again, feeling incomplete, needing more; this time, more progress toward the goal.  Every time I finish a project, I want to fill that gap with more ventures, but Read more…
