I’m a screamer

The last post was way long and I didn’t even get to put in some of the oddball stuff.

As if rabbit-filled sweets weren’t odd enough.

Looking for help on this one: Does Patchwerk have an aura or something that cancels Invisibility?

During our 90-minute fail fest, I tried using it a couple times to get in a better position to die and it would fade instantly. Quick search on the interwebz pulled up nada. Anyone got a clue here?

In the Naxx 25 run, we were standing around in Sapph’s door reviewing the strategy. Everyone run to the left, stay out of his cleave, mage is on curses, druids/shamans help with curses where you can, spread out when he takes to the air, wait for the ice blocks, yadda yadda.

I had to lock down my action bars for the first time. In one match I managed to swap abilities on my bars not once, but twice! I don’t click much so to fuck up like that made me feel really stupid. Like, more stupid than normal.

There will be some tweaking with my keybinds, I found myself thinking, “Wow, if I had mapped this to that then I would have gotten that Frost Nova off…”

I completely forgot about the fact I made a mouse-over polymorph macro. Granted, it’s original intended use was for CC on party members when fighting KT on 25-man Naxx… but I shouldn’t have forgotten about it. Durrrrrrrr…

Dual-stealth teams fuck us HARD. No dinner, no movie, no flowers, no lube. And they never call the next day. Continue reading
