Knifey in Shattrath

Tuesday, July 29th, 2008

Knifey has been hanging around with all the cool Netherwing Drake-riding kids in Shattrath City, having moved on from Azeroth through the Dark Portal. I've been using the Scryer's inn as a resting place for now, mostly because the jump from the Scryer tier down to the upper city whilst painful can be survived. It's […]

Knifey's Ambushing Daggers

Sunday, April 6th, 2008

My recent investigation/killing spree in the Sunken Temple highlighted the need to use Ambush as an opening move, which I could achieve by having both a one-handed sword and dagger and using the dagger in the main hand. I then checked to make sure that my Sword Specialisation was proccing with its off-hand use, which […]

Off-Hand Sword Specialisation

Sunday, March 23rd, 2008

Ambush is a great opening move, doing a great deal of damage, but having a sword in the main hand prevents its use. I started using Cheap Shot as my opening move, which deals no damage but gives two combo points that I can then use immediately for Slice and Dice. This lets various talents […]

Knifey in the Sunken Temple

Sunday, March 23rd, 2008

Having been tasked by the head of the Rogue's Guild to get a key in the Sunken Temple, and with a handful of quests from around the world for the same dungeon, Knifey and friends went in to the Swamp of Sorrows to explore the temple. The Sunken Temple is quite an interesting dungeon, but […]

It Was Safe Except for the Landing

Sunday, January 13th, 2008

In other adventuring news, rogue level 40 got me the interesting skill of safe falling. When exploring the capabilities of this new skill I found out that it offers only a relative level of safety when falling. For example, it's still not safe to 'fall' off the Great Lift. I need to make myself a […]

The Continuing Chronicles of Knifey

Monday, January 7th, 2008

I want a pony! Actually, I was hoping to get a ram as a riding mount for my gnome self. Normally gnomes get a Mechanostrider, and there's nothing wrong with that, but with the reputation system overhauled it is now far easier to gain exalted reputation level with a faction to let you ride a […]

Knifey, the Mid-level Rogue

Sunday, December 30th, 2007

Knifey has been running around the familiar lands of Westfall, Redridge Mountains, and Duskwood, trying his best to gain as much experience as needed to catch up with my friends. With some excellent help from Azrail on how to stab effectively I was able to knife my way through level after level. A run through […]

Knifey the Low-level Rogue

Monday, December 17th, 2007

A new face appeared in the World of Warcraft, in the realm of Draenor. Knifey, the gnome rogue, joins his friends in the quest to be a hero. Picking up a kitchen knife I set off to start stabbing monsters in a brave tale of nominative determinism. After stabbing some wolves and getting the meat […]
