Enchanting Isn't

Monday, January 11th, 2010

The profession of enchanting has never quite lived up to its name. From the early days of World of Warcraft, enchanters had to get half-way in to the drudge of a dungeon Uldaman simply to find the profession trainer and learn new enchanting formulae. Selling enchantments was not much easier. Rather than creating a bottled […]

The Great Egg Hunt

Sunday, December 2nd, 2007

The netherwing drake mounts became available some time back in the Outlands, and are large, cool-looking dragons that you can fly around on. To get one of them you need to prove your dedication to freeing their race from the Dragonmaw Orcs, and you can achieve this through performing various tasks that promote the eventual […]

Gorefiend's Armour: Helping to Defeat Vhel'kur

Monday, November 12th, 2007

Running around with a mage friend in Shadowmoon Valley, trying to avoid the nasty bidepal dragonlike monsters in the Temple of Ata'Mal, I get a call asking for help to kill a big undead dragon flying around the Netherwing Ledge in an effort to retrive Gorefiend's armour. I mention that I am already in a […]

Orc or Death?

Tuesday, October 9th, 2007

The Netherwing drakes are being abused by the Dragonmaw orcs. As a brave adventurer, you are tasked with infiltrating the Dragonmaw orcs and subverting their cause from the inside. Superficially, it looks like you are assisting the orcs, but you are continually working to disrupt operations and work against them. To help with this task, […]

How to Succeed at Dice Rolling

Monday, October 8th, 2007

A band of heroic adventurers, including my warlock self, had banded together to defeat the evil forces with the Tempest Keep structure known as the Mechanar. We were merrily defeating wave after wave of unsuspecting evil, when one of the baddies dropped a pattern that detailed how a tailor could make some Arcanoweave Boots. This […]

When is a Ninja not a Ninja?

Monday, October 1st, 2007

I finally managed to get through the Shadow Labyrinth to get the first fragment of the Karazhan key. The first two attempts had to be aborted owing to a lack of time, but the group I made it with pretty much raced through the instance. The tank was pretty good, but the DPS and healing […]

Hit Me With the Nerf Bat

Sunday, August 5th, 2007

I picked up playing my now-neglected warlock, if only for a change of pace. I ran around completing some familiar quests in Hellfire Peninsula, for he is only level 61, not having been played much since the release of The Burning Crusade. When I was playing my warrior a few weeks back I remember seeing […]

A Courtesy Call

Wednesday, September 14th, 2005

Our first foray in to Zul'Gurub and we are faced with a high priest channeler, or some such. Defeating her minions whilst she pays no attention, we then prepare for what is likely to be a tough battle. During our preparations, where we make sure all our buffs are running and we discuss possible tactics, […]

This Ain't a Cruise Liner

'Does this boat serve breakfast?' 'Not in the evening, Master Gnome.' 'Nuts.'

Bored of Life?

Monday, July 25th, 2005

I was in a class raid on Stratholme, in the Scarlet Crusade part of town. Our raid party had infiltrated the base of the Scarlet Crusade and were heading in to defeat their leader. The cramped fighting conditions made battle a little awkward at times, and one had to be careful about stepping in to […]
