Centenary

Monday, February 23rd, 2009 Posted in General | 2 Comments »

A little under two years later, and I've hit post 100. Time for a little retrospective, I think. Back in March, 2007, a raider forĀ  tiny little Kara guild, who played a rogue, introduced a view of Warcraft that was what ...

The Sixth Picture of the Sixth Folder

Vads has tagged me, and I aim to please. I was actually quite surprised at what it turned up - this: Sadly, we're all level 80 in this shot, and the DKs should give it away that this was a bit of ...

Back in the Old Routine

Sunday, February 15th, 2009 Posted in General | 3 Comments »

It took long enough, but it finally happened. I'm back in the pre-WotLK routine of raiding and not much else. It's that simple. There's not much to do other than farm and raid, and I don't mind this one bit. I've ...

That’s right, I’m doing this deliberately.

Inspired by a tale of a healer friend of mine who got an earful every time someone died in a pug she was in, I think it's time to set a few things straight. The healer and the tank are, in ...

Hello, my name is Namthe and I’m an Addonoholic.

Right, I'm glad I've got that out of the way. I remember my first addon, way back in the mists of time when I was but a newbie. MobHealth did just what it said on the tin - it allowed me ...

Unexpected Benefits

3.0.8, the patch that was supposed to be the saviour of us all, has arrived. And as many people will tell you, it hasn't lived up to what was promised. The big thing, as far as I was concerned, would be ...

Puggin’ annoying

Tuesday, January 6th, 2009 Posted in Dungeons, General | 3 Comments »

Ah, yes, that was it. Pugging has a whole set of rules to it that nobody seems to agree on. But when it comes to pugging heroics, it seems to me that there needs to be rather more etiquette on how ...

Back in the Saddle Again

Sunday, January 4th, 2009 Posted in General | 1 Comment »

Finally, after an unplanned two-week break I'm back. And what has changed since the last time I logged in? I'm happy to say that auction house prices are down, but other than that everything is pretty much the same. I ...

Happy Winter Veil!

The dreaded Real Life has struck, so I haven't been playing for the last week or so. In any case, a very happy festive season to everyone who's read and commented over the past year. Normal service will be resumed ...

Say, what?

"I don't want the tank to mark. I'd rather we kept some chaos, keep things interesting." Er, what? The above was what greeted me as I joined a pug for Heroic Nexus yesterday. It wasn't even the healer that said that ...
