I haz a /squeeeeeeee

As referenced last week, there is a reason besides being low on healers that will keep my guild from letting me raid on my mage any time soon.

And it came with a /squeeeeeeeeeeee.

Those of you that happen to live within a 25-mile radius probably heard it happen, others found out through my status on Facebook or gmail.

For the rest, here is a pictorial clue:

First few hours in



This is not a test.

This is a real freak out reported by the Emergency Freak Out System.

I have logged in to Arioch and attempted to do stuff.


This concludes our warning through the Emergency Freak Out System.

Thank you. Continue reading

WoW. Just WoW.

So after my rather tearful decision being made, leadership transferred over, goodbye post left on the forums, and characters invited to my new home I spent part of the day going through some old blog posts of mine.

I told you this was like a journal for me.

I was reading about how happy I was to be breaking 2k in VoA, how much my first guild struggled in freaking heroics.

I had actually forgotten about how challenging those heroics were way back in the day.

Posts about entering Naxx and being nervous as hell.

Posts about entering Ulduar and being nervous as hell.

Posts about the good times.

Posts about how fucking frustrated I got. Continue reading

The Lich King is talking to me!

The Lich King is talking to me!

I expect at least one other person is hearing Dennis Leary say that line.

Kaayn finally got to run a 10 man ICC and listen to the tempting whispers of the Lich King.

I really think what with this being an RPG and all we should have an option to rejoin Arthas.

I also think we should have that option in the DK starting area. I want to turn XP off and just slaughter innocent peasants for a few hours.

It feels good to laugh that much.

Anywho, before I get carted off as a blood thirsty loony… Continue reading

Have bloods, will DPS

OK, so Kaayn got the bloods off Rotface and Festernuts on ICC 25.

Ran around collecting 25 primordial saronites.

Ran out to BFE Dragonblight and wildly flailed about through the RP/combat to get Light’s Vengeance.

Popped back in to ICC to pick up my purty Shadow’s Edge.

I luvs it and hugs it and calls it George.

And then…

then… Continue reading

New and Improved

So Initri has “died” and been resurrected as Kaayn 2.0.

I’m back to raiding on him, 10s and 25s in ICC.

Yep, 3 toons. I am a glutton for punishment.

Tir, the raid leader for SR, had me respec to Unholy from Blood and put me through my paces at the training dummy.

ZOMG, blood had such a smoother rotation to me.

I know that Tir vastly outgears me so I couldn’t hope to meet his numbers, but the numbers I was posting seemed really lackluster. Continue reading

Wyn = Win

Yes, I know, I didn’t post yesterday.

That whole thing about posting under the influence of more sleep?

Yeah… ok, so I’m raiding just about every lock out on 2 characters now.

I can sleep when I’m dead, right?

Still pretty wiped out from the weekend, so here is some link love to a guildmate who is artistically talented and funny as fuck. Continue reading

I’m tired

Not of WoW, just in real life.

In case you didn’t know, I actually write these posts the night before and then use the miracle of setting a publication date and time to make the words appear tomorrow.

So it’s like I’m talking to the future from the past, man. Or something. Yes, I will go to bed when I’m done with this post, I obviously need the sleep.

(This is what happens when I have to go into the office on raid days.) Continue reading

How did that happen?

My mage is my main.

My mage is my main.

I swear it.

So how does it happen that my priest ends up healing ICC 25 last night?

Normally, we have a plethora of resto shaman, but two of them mysteriously were not there last night.

The guild that we are partnering with for 25s now on Tuesday nights tends to be a little short on the heals.

So we were lacking heals. Continue reading

And now for something completely different

No, this is not the continuation post for Del’s non-meme meme thing.

Personal life is a little weirded out right now, and it’s affecting my ability to put down cognitive thought to paper (or blog).

So, just a quick update on my poor little priest.

Last night he got drug through ICC from start to well, end of raid time.

So for the first time, he got to see everything that happens BEFORE the BQL fight. Continue reading
