Hitting Arvash with the nerfbat!

September 7, 2012 6 comments

Stealing inspiration from my buddy Arvash!

In the new Mist of Pandaria expansion, Druids will be getting a new spell called Symbiosis, which will allow them to “trade” a spell with another player, based on the player’s class and combat role and the Druid’s specialization.

So my question is, if you could have any spell you want from any other class, current spells or new ones in MoP, what would it be?  How would you work it into your rotation, gameplay, etc.?

The one spell for my Priest Liyhe would have to be a Battle Rez! It would be nice to have one, because lets face it, how many DK’s save up their runic power or how many people actually raid with warlocks? (They smell like imp poo!)

Other notable mentions:

Travel Form – but instead of a cheetah or a stag – a unicorn! lol

Healing Shrooms – but instead of making a smurf village – make a bunch of heretics burning at the stake!

Summon Ghoul/Demon/pet etc – Angels!

But to expand upon Arv’s initial question if I could have an ability from any MMO, it would be simple. From FFXI:

Utsusemi

And it’s upgraded version:

Shadows

I don’t really tank in WoW, it’s too much work! However, I did tank as a ninja in FFXI.

Now the ninja in FFXI originally was not thought out by Square Enix to be a tank. It the players who made the ninja into a tank.

Now to be a ninja tank in FFXI, you needed good gear, and the ability to time your casts well. If  you were good xping was easy street, get a bad one and it was painful. A good one would only get hit maybe a few times here and there, a bad one was worth then a noob DK tank in Hellfire Ramparts.

It was simple, when you had both versions of the spell – Ichi – took about 4-5 sec to cast, Ni was almost instant cast.

1.) Prepull – cast Utsusemi:Ni – if you were main job ninja – you got 4 shadows

2.) As the mob s beating on you – keep track of how many shadows you have left, before the last one is gone, start casting Utsusei:Ichi so the last Ni shadow would go before Ichi finishes casting. But if for some reason the mob misses your shadow, or you dodge, one had to cancel the last shadow from Ni. Why you ask? Because Ichi cannot overwrite Ni, while Ni could overwrite Ichi shadows.

3.) While doing this you had to make sure maintain threat – by using your WS when poss, and other ninjitsu spells as needed.

Shared Topic: How has WoW changed your life?

August 15, 2012 9 comments

AHing SR Style.

In trying to keep my promise to post more often, here is my responce to this week’s current topic from Blog Azeroth!

How has WoW changed your life?

For me WoW has changed my life in a few major ways.

1.) I met my current GF/squeeze/ball and chain via WoW! (Cheesy yes I know) She is my light, and also a smelly warlock! Lyssianna :P Before meeting her I was perfectly fine in being a bachelor for life!

2.) Also thanks to WoW I have met some awesome people in game that I may have never ordinarily have met! So my guildmates in Shadow Rising – here’s to hopefully a metric boatload of many wipes, wins, and picking on Sorak now and in the future!

3.) I would have never thought to put my thoughts into a blog format, although I dont get a lot of hits, it is quite enjoyable to write. :)

Pre MoP checklist and Shared Topic

August 8, 2012 5 comments

With the MoP release date being old news, I have been thinking what are somethings I would like to get done in a pre-MoP Azeroth.

1.) Get the new hunter to 85 (currently 80) and hopefully with some decent gear.
2.) 10000 HK on my priest! (almost there!)
3.) Get the baby Shaman to 85 (currently 82)
4.) Level up the new Alliance Warlock with Lyssianna! I forgot how much “weaker” one is without Heirlooms!
5.) Once 5.0 hit, get the SR crew together for a raid test run to play with the new talent system.
6.) Get in on some RBG action with Navimie!
7.) Maybe some 2s or 3s in arena? Big maybe here.
8.) Play more beta when I can.
9.) Blog more often….
10.) More exercise!!!!!
11.) Check in on Blog Azeroth more often and check out the shared topics section.

And for the current Shared Topic!

“Are you playing the MoP Beta? Why or why not? How much time are you spending there vs. the “live” servers.”

I admit i have not played as much beta as I could. Been spending more time on live then beta.

Why?
1.) I don’t like losing progress.
2.) I sort of want to not have all of MoP spoiled for me.
3.) NO ADDONS
4.) Takes away from time I could be getting stuff done on Live.
5.) Can’t make gold that I can keep!
6.) Things change on the beta.

Why I should play more beta:
1.) More familiarity with MoP system of talents.
2.) Know the best path to level faster.
3.) See more of Pandaria!
4.) Pet Battles!
5.) It’s something different!
6.) Get used to MoP healing.
