Aye!

I know I haven’t used that word in a long time.  My long time druid friend now a hunter friend, Ironweaver, started his own blog in his own voice and I remembered once I had a voice too.  Please visit his awesome up and coming blog at:

IRONWEAVER.WORDPRESS.COM

So far the bastard has caught all 4 spirit beasts and found the Time-Lost Proto Drake.  Even out rolled me in a couple of pugs that I invited him to on gear I would love to have.  Keep it in the guild, right?  I inspired him to start this blog and become a hunter.

When his main was his druid I remember him telling me, “You know why I love being a druid?”  I said, “No.”  He said, “You get to be your own p—y.”  Then he transformed into his running form and dashed away.

This one is for you, Ironweaver.

Some miscellaneous pictures that were sitting in my Screen Shot folder…

No need wait for Cataclysm we got your Worgen right here.  We will miss you Frostfang.

What an honor…

I read WoW Insider everyday.  On the bus, at work(both jobs), at home, while at the movies, when my wife is talking to me, etc…  It keeps me up to date on Patch changes and how they affect me.  They even spoiled Cataclysm for me.  Scattered Shots many blog posts keep me in check and make me a better hunter.  BRK taught me all about pets and gave me reason to play a Beast Mastery hunter.

It is an honor, WoW Insider, to make any list on your site.  Thank you!

Oper Mini 5 Beta

Opera Mini 5 Beta Icon

Totally  kicks ass!

Go test it out for yourself.  Makes browsing Wowhead a breeze, now loads the full page of Wow Insider, but I can’t blog on WordPress.  Remember it’s only the Beta and they still have time to fix it.

I almost got everything I asked for, here’s my tweet to them about 5 days before they released the beta:

Opera Mini 5 Twitter

Did you see?  I asked for Tabs, and a find, we were on the same page.  Uh huh!  GT is genius.

Next release I get copy & paste.  One can dream right?

I just logged into WordPress and look at what I caught.  10 views today no… 2,500 Total Views.

I would like to thank Eresin and Davlin for discovering my blog, Mania for gathering all the pet information, Pike for all the role playing stories, Twisted Nether and Lassirra for listing me, and BRK for the inspiration to start this blog.  If there is anyone I missed please let me know.  Don’t worry I won’t be like Phineas and Ferb during their one hit wonder episode.

Davlin kind of asked in a totally unrelated email why I started this blog?

I figured it would be appropriate for the you to know when I hit a nice milestone in hits.

Let me list a few hunter skills that higher level hunter’s talk about that I never knew about when I was just a wee pellet shooting Hunter.

  1. Aimed Shot – you can pick it up at level 20 if you are a Marksman hunter.
  2. Steady Shot – a level 50 shot.
  3. Kill Command – a level 66 you could say buff to your pet’s attack power.
  4. Kill Shot – a level 70 shot

If you ever asked yourself,  “What’s a shot rotation?”  LoL.  Sometimes I still forget.

At one point in time you didn’t know how to shoot or fill your paper doll or where to buy ammo.  When famous bloggers like BRK talked about Kill Shot and think, “What is he talking about?”

If you ever felt like you didn’t know how to kill things as a new Hunter.  If you ever felt like leveling from level 30 to 40 was the hardest thing you ever did.  If words or phrases like aggro and “burn things down” made you feel lost.

At the time you didn’t find any guides or blogs that talked about what you should be doing at this level, how to fight, where to get pet skills (before patch 3.0.2), what armor should you be using, where should you be questing, when you should be changing out your pouches or quivers, what quests benefit the lower level hunters, if you were like me…

Hey everyone,

I was in the market for a laptop for a few months now and after much deliberating:

My requirements were Bluetooth, illuminated keyboard, 4 GB ram, etc.

I got my new toy!

MacBook Boxes

Out of the shipping box still inside the box.

New MacBook running World of Warcraft

Graphics

With a 256 MB video card this machine is made to play World of Warcraft.  Playing on my desktop I never knew that the game could look so beautiful and have a rich environment that paid attention to detail.  Running the game for the first time on this Mac was just amazing.

Control

I had my first run through of the game on this MacBook and can say that I had a very difficult time killing horde with no mouse, right click or Num Lock.  The Horde had it easy killing me.  I need to read the Key Bindings or get a mouse!

Specs

MacBook 13.3″ | 2.4 GHz

  • Processor 2.4GHz Intel Core 2 Duo
  • Memory 4GB 1066MHz DDR3 SDRAM – 2x2GB
