Noblegarden is upon us.

I intend to try and do everything necessary to get the Noble Gardener achievement. I also really want to get the Polymorph: Rabbit spell. What this means is actually playing this week; and spending enough time collecting chocolate eggs. :/

There's also the Argent Tournament to continue. I am still collecting the tokens to become a champion.

I'll find time to play some time this week, I'm sure. Running around with a basket, collecting eggs, will be fun.

You Must Equip A Lance

I've really cut back my play time. I have reached the second stage of the Argent Tournament with my Mage and specced my Priest as Holy-smite-batman. That's about all.

I created some guild forums for the sake of something to do, but don't really want to raid at this time. I'm enjoying life outside the game atm. Which really puts this blog in a strange place. Expect some updates but nothing major anytime soon.

Also, check out these two addons -- they are games that you can play... in-game.

Hardcore Guild is Hardcore

Ensidia has downed Yogg-Saron, the final boss of Ulduar.

Mind you, they are possibly the most hardcore guild in the world at present. And they, along with every other insane guild, have yet to complete Ulduar on "hardmode". Let's just hope that it really will be a serious gear check, and that no one will even get to Algalon the Observer for a few weeks yet.

In other news, I started on the Argent Tournament today. I will try and log in each day to do the dailies and work towards not only becoming a Champion representative, but also to earn enough tokens to get both the ground and flying mounts that are available.

A Mage with a lance. Funfun. >.<

My Warlock is level 30, finally. And I will try and find time also to play my Priest a bit. I will be speccing Discipline next time I log her. I just miss healing. ^_^

Of course, I will fill the build out as I level, until it is 57/14/0. I look forward to healing heroics!

3.1 Commences

And patch 3.1 fell hurtling from the sky like a screaming comet, inadvertently bent on the destruction of free time and real life priorities and commitments.

It's upon us at last: the biggest content patch for quite some time, and the first major patch of the current instalment of the game. Highly anticipated by every ilk, whether raider or casual altaholic, PvPer or socialite, patch 3.1 brings a lot of welcome changes and additions to the game.

[Official Ulduar Trailer]

Check it:
Ulduar, with its 14 bosses -- including the old god, Yogg-Saron --, varying tiers of difficulty, and over 800 new pieces of equipment -- including the much anticipated and coveted Tier 8 armor.
The Argent Tournament in Icecrown -- sure to keep most of us occupied for weeks, if not months to come -- with its daily quests, achievements, mounts and other items.
Class talent tree changes -- and we get all of our talent points refunded (meaning free respecs for everyone!).
Many profession changes -- including additional recipes, changes to buff durations, tweaking of oldschool items, etc.
And a whole lot more additions, tweaks, fixes and changes. [3.1 Patch Notes]

I really miss raiding. I wish that I was given the opportunity to raid Ulduar, but with my inability (and unwillingness) to commit to a specific raiding day or time, it makes raiding all but impossible. I will, however, be cheering on various high-end guilds in their race to complete Ulduar and defeat Yogg-Saron, garnering them the server first achievement and some form of strange geek respect for having no lives and achieving something so monumental in a mere virtual world.

It is time to dust off my Mage's robes and fire up those afterburners. I want to try and enjoy what content I do get to experience with these additions and changes to the game.

Let the Secrets of Ulduar begin.

Long live the Alliance!

Scourge Chat


Coffee with Sargeras. Who'd 'a thunk it, eh.

Warlock = level 27. O.O

People at work must think I am crazy. I was laughing so much. :o

Build 9767 - Three Talent Builds

Make that four.

Killing time at work again. Makes me wonder how many more changes will be made to various class talent trees by the time the patch goes live.

Build 9767

Discipline Priest (54/17/0)
I will probably heal with my priest at 80. I want to try out "absorption" healing, and it will be interesting to use a lot of flash heals to see how many crits I can chain.

Edit: Also, 57/14/0 may prove to be good. The extra 3% crit and reduced pushback in lieu of reduced spell damage may well be worth taking.

Affliction Warlock (54/17/0)
Still a warlock noob, so I don't know if this is even a viable heroic build. Not that I will ever have a level 80 warlock, mind you. It is just fun to play around with talents.

Enhancement Shaman (11/60/0)
Um, bring on melee? Could be interesting to build up an Enhancement set, huh.

Combat Rogue (16/55/0)
Swinging two big swords is great!

Level 20 Warlock Quest


Do you know how long it takes to run down almost the entire Barrens? Not to mention actually getting there by running through all of Darkshore and most of Ashenvale. >.>

Oh well, it's almost over. I think I'm halfway to Camp Taurajo already. Two hours later. :p

3.1 Cometh

So this is what happens when you go on holiday: your blog doesn't get updated. Still, I don't really have much to say regarding anything.

3.1 is still in the works, but it should be coming pretty soon (possibly this week). A few expected changes have been postponed, such as the built-in outfitter. But dual spec is going ahead and Ulduar, with its 800+ items and 16 or so bosses, is looking really good.

I played my Warlock a little bit. She is still a lowbie (level 17) but it's fun to go back to the old world and level another toon. I guess that is one aspect of the game that keeps me playing. I don't have the time to get ten toons to 80, but I can have fun playing any class I choose at whatever level they are at.
