Breakfast topic: Streaks! {WoW}

Jul 2nd 2010 8:39AM Ever since the dungeon finder was released, I've had to witness my husband's mage get Old Kingdom as the first dungeon of the day....nearly every day. One day, he got OK four times in a row.

My paladin has had a streak of getting DTK..sometimes twice a day.


The Old Kingdom streak is not so fun anymore....the RNG hates my husband with regards to the streak.

Sea-Turtle Mount


If you have to fish it up...The RNG makes it the most elusive thing for my husband and I. The only exception was the Giant Sewer Rat which I got fairly quickly.

Breakfast Topic: Things my wife and I have done in WoW {WoW}

Jun 24th 2010 12:01PM My husband and I were healers in an Ulduar Raid. It was a slow progression. At one point we look at each other shrugged and the next thing the raid saw in chat was:

"We're bored. C and I are going to have sex. See ya," and our toons leave raid and log out right there in the dungeon.

The next day we found out that the raid ended right there. One of our guildies stated, "If ever there was a justifiable time to leave a raid, that it is."

Scorchling not available in this year's Midsummer Fire Festival {WoW}

Jun 21st 2010 11:09AM I've farmed the last two years trying to get it not luck. *sniff*

@Danawhitaker - Your guild is just lucky. The RNG loves y'all.


I am one sad panda.

Breakfast Topic: Dealing with unpleasant players {WoW}

Jun 8th 2010 10:09AM /agree

Trying to gear my new pally tank since we have a shortage of decent tanks. Some of the best tanks on my server are guiding me in the ways of efficient tankdom, but I do have this macro:

"Yes, I know I suck and have a low gear score. I need to run dungeons to get better gear and practice to be one of those tanks that everyone loves to run with. Please have some patience and understanding. We all started somewhere. Thank you."

Sidenote: The tank left group after 15 minutes. We got a lower geared Paladin, but still managed to complete FoS in about 10-15 minutes.

Jun 8th 2010 8:47AM From tanks pulling then dropping group to DPSers rudely telling healers and tanks how to play... my husband and I have seen it all.

The worst was recently when we queued for Randoms. He was healing and I was DPSing when we got into H-FoS. The group was well-geared, so we figured we would have a decent, quick run. The Paladin tank from Mok'Nathal immediately says to boot him. Gomen nasai? Apparently, he thought he should be entitled to a haste trinket that I (Mookin Druid), my husband (shadow/disc priest) and the mage was going to Need on. Dang skippy we would Need on it.

The group was in agreement that we shouldn't let him get out of the cooldown and refused to boot him. He pulled, bubbled, we wiped, ran back in, rezzed, and teleported out of dungeon while never dropping group. He cussed us out, my husband and I put him on ignore. He then tried to Vote to Kick some of us and failed. While waiting for him to give up, I told the remaining DPS that they could leave if they needed to and I planned on going to prep spaghetti sauce for the night's dinner. My husband was reading at his computer.

Yes, we should have just booted him, but he was an absolute @&&hat, made tanks look bad, and the whole group was agreement that he wasn't going to get off that easy.

Around Azeroth: Alone, so very alone {WoW}

May 25th 2010 11:14AM "you live as you die--alone"

Nice Heart of Darkness (Joseph Conrad) reference.

Or a larger stretch to Orson Wells, "“We're born alone, we live alone, we die alone."

Breakfast Topic: Should we have to level every character? {WoW}

Feb 6th 2010 8:38AM /shudder

I leveled my Druid and Rogue in Vanilla WoW. My fiancee leveled his in Wrath and although difficult it was still easier than when I leveled mine.


If we already have a couple of 80s, any new character we roll should start out at a higher level or so.

Now, on the flip-side, we have Cataclysm and it is going to rip the old world apart and create a whole batch of new content. Would you want to miss it or just speed through it as a higher level? To give a variety of options, Blizzard could give you the option to "auto-level to level X (with a cap between 40-60)" or "start as level 1". It would require some coding, but it is possible.

Breakfast Topic: Hi ho Silver, away! {WoW}

Feb 1st 2010 8:45AM Frostwolf Howler is my tauren druid's favorite mount. I got it for her back when you HAD to be exalted with the faction. I ran AV Back to back for a long time until I reached exalted status. It was hell because I'm not a big PVPer. That and people expecting me to heal them even though I was feral specced. Bird form of course for flight although I occasionally throw her on BC's Cenarion expedition's Hippogryph.

BE Rogue is the mount collector, but her primary mounts are the Zevhra or Blizzcon '08 Bear for ground. The Sea Turtle has been an elusive creature for her. For flying she prefers the Green Proto-Drake (got it on the first egg), turbo flying machine, or the Armored Blue Wind-Rider since it has goggles like my rogue's engineering ones.

I haven't found prefered mounts for my paladin or hunter yet.
