So I think I can handle 10 mans, but my computer can definitely not handle 25 mans, I had such an issue last night getting any of my spells to actually cast I was tempted to just log.

We went to TOC, and the screen tearing was insane, i reloaded my UI and vertical sync so many times I can’t remember, then we went to Ony 25 and none of my spells would cast at all, it was fucking stupid.

ARGH!!

10 mans seem to be ok, and 25 mans seem to be ok if I do them after the computer has been off for 8 hours or so, and I do them straight away….once it starts to heat up – it’s all downhill.

Anyway, I am annoyed and I enjoy 25 man raiding, so this is a bitter pill I refuse to swallow! I will keep doing everything I can until the point where I break the computer from sheer frustration.

I went achievement chasing today, was fun to just be getting things done. I got my pest controls done – I have neded like one animal on them for about 3 months and just have not had a chance to finsih it.

I also managed to get my weapon skills and unarmed ones done. I went to searing gorge and beat up some creatures, was fun just running around beating the crap out of things – melee mage FTW! I then headed to Hellfire to start beating things up there, once my unarmed got to about 370 I had heaps of trouble levelling it in searing gorge 😀

I am now on 6k for achievements, which I think is kind of cool 😀 eheh

guild update, overdue i know

So time for a guild update since it has been a little while, Xmas is coming up and NYE so we aren’t raiding at the moment, but I have spent the last couple of weeks getting heroics and gear under my belt.

Have been using the random heroic thing, which is pretty cool, and just running repeatedly. Still prefer running with the guildies I have become rather attached to, however they aren’t always available 😀 ehehhe

I have managed to get my gearscore up and am now ranked i think we counted at 25th? the other day for the guild, which is still low as far as I am concerned, but it was better than being 45th 😀  So will continue to work on that. I need more frost badges to get my next level of tier pieces, but for the minute I am trying to save up my cloth for boots and stuff…..so it ill slowly get up there.

Mr Mage is helping me heaps with making me a better mage, I have improved my DPS from approx 3.5k to over 9k if all my procs are going and on average now in a 25 man raid I am hitting 5k if I am not dicking about with typing etc.  So not only has he helped me with my gear and is still helping me, he has managed to get me to play at a much better level.  I am surprised I even let them to be honest, a few years ago I would have told them where to shove it and I would have left, but he isn’t an arse about it and he isn’t making me feel like an idiot so that helps…  I still have trouble not watching the raid frames and wanting to call out what is going on but I can’t really compete with the current raid leader.

Can I also point out that tanks that can TPS like maniacs are a huge difference as well, perhaps it is the jump in gear, I don’t know but I barely have to look at omen anymore because I know if our pally is tanking he will be so high on threat I will never catch him, I love that feeling, means I can just burn hard and watch my dps increase.  Riding threat was never a pleasant experience and I know a few of our guys appreciate that as well.

After a few more rads with them, I can’t believe how good a raid leader he is. Makes me somewhat jealous I have to say, he is on top of every minute detail that is going on, and is still able to tank  😀  heheh  I have never hd so much fun in raids as I have the last few weeks, I know we seem to be a lot quieter in raid than they are, but i think that has slowly begun to change. We were still new and unsure etc, now people are settled in a little more they are causing havoc.

I am concerned about a couple of poeple, but have been assured it is ok and under control, I have offered my services but they have not been taken up, so i have to breathe a sigh of relief at that 😀  I didn’t want the responsibility anymore, but I can’t help feeling concerned if my guildies – any of them – have issues with me or my friends.  I have developed a few friendships so far in the guild but have not really spoken to many people, I need to make a more concerted effort now that I am more settled into the guild.

What else has been going on?  Not much else really, so many people in the guild are just fabulous, filthy and fun,  I laugh  more than anything with these guys and I feel at home. I have had many ex-MA tell me they are happy and enjoying themselves.

Finally! Fuck yes!

So finally after about the last 4 weeks for running OBS 3D zerg, I finally managed to get it done!!

I estimate I spent about 500g on repairs for the wiping I suffered in that place!  I went a couple of times with guildies, but it just never happened, we kept getting close every few attempts like 10% or under.

But it was well worth it!!  I won the drake that dropped!!!!  SQUEEEEE!!!!!!

Won with a roll of 99!!

Catch up

So a fair few things have been going on and I have not been updating 🙂

Patch 3.3 dropped 2 weeks ago, with Icecrown Citadel raid being released with 4 bosses.  They will release the rest over stages, I think due to the Xmas break there is a break of about 28 days before the next release of bosses.

We have been into ICC a couple of times now, we killed the first boss Lord Marrow something, on our first night in there on about 5th attempt and last night we went back in and one shot it.  It is a very long fight, well for us it was and most of us were kicking almost 6/7 k DPS.

We went and had a go and deathwhisper last night and well, not sure how well that fight is going to work, it seems a tough fight, but I am sure once we have the adds under control it will be fine.  We had about 4 shots on her and we were slowly getting better each time.

Onto other guild info, since we joined with this guild about 7 people have left/booted from the guild and apparently it isn’t us causing the issue, we had hoped that we would have enough people to run a 10 man at the same time as the 25’s this has now not happened as we have lost too many and we barely have enough to actually get a raid running on time.

This is also another issue in that raids never run at 7.30, last night we got started at 8pm I think, which was better than the previous night of 8.30, but it just is silly that we spend so much time waiting for people to turn up before we even start inviting when we have 23 people at 7.00..I know I would have started inviting and clearing trash while we waited for the extra 2 people.

All in all they are a nice bunch, if we can sort out this raid inviting/starting issue it will be really good.

3rd toon at 80 :D

Woot!! Warrior is at 80!!

Don’t want to play her anymore!!  too hard!!

I started a new blog a couple of days ago, in defence of GC and all the idiots out there 😀

LOL  It is my little way of saying I support him!

TOC grand style

Last night was supposed to be an Uld 10 man run, sadly it didn’t happen, instead we went to TOC – but heroic 25 😀

We were in there the other night and we were not doing too badly, we were having the same problem last night, in that people were not killing the snobolds fast enough.

I was doing my best to constantly be tab targetting so that when they were out I was on them as quickly as possible, however on a couple of occassions I got a snobold myself, called out my name and ran forward, only to stand there for the entire time watching a hunter, oomkin and a few others continually firing at the boss…..so tell me how can you continously not do what your told and expect us to win?

All in all though it was fun doing something that is a challenge and not letting us beat it.  I think we had slightly less DPS last night as I was second on DPS and I was in the top  few for damage overall until I started dying too often….whereas the other night I was way down on the DPS, barely in the top 10….but we couldn’t do it then either…LOL

We are currenntly speculating that the new patch 3.3 is going to drop tonight, which will be Icecrown citadel 🙂  New content!!  Should be good, mages can go frost!!  OHHH YEAH!!!  and apparently be raid viable, I can’t wait to sink my teeth into a good ole frost spec 🙂

That will teach you

and well the person I was talking about before just got booted from the guild, so I guess Yippee!!   😀 AHHAH
