WoW Insider's Cataclysm launch giveaway: Landros' Gift Box {WoW}

Dec 7th 2010 1:59AM Is it bad that, if I won this, I'd hope that it contains the Riding Turtle? :)

WoW Insider's Cataclysm launch giveaway: BlizzCon 2010 Deathy in-game pet {WoW}

Dec 7th 2010 1:21AM Never realised there would be codes given out for this little monster. Guess he can't be contained :)

Enter to win a Blazing Hippogryph and other loot {WoW}

Jul 27th 2010 12:59PM That is a pretty sweet looking hippogryph, but I have to admit, I'm rather intrigued by the pedestals. Hadn't heard of these being put in, but as an idea I like it :)

Breakfast Topic: What do you do while waiting for LFG to pop? {WoW}

Jan 11th 2010 8:07AM When I first log on with my DPS I put myself straight in the queue. Obviously this means at least a 10-15 minute wait, but then I make my way to the Argent Tournament and get to work on my dailies there. It's a great way to earn a few gold and there's pretty much zero chance of finishing them all before I finally get into a dungeon :)

Why am I suddenly so popular? {WoW}

Aug 18th 2009 3:39AM I think basically it comes down to this - Supply & Demand

I've been a DPS Warrior ever since I started the game nearly 3 years ago. Like many, when the new Dual Specs came out I bought it and made a Tank spec for my off-spec. I started getting the odd mit of gear that no one else wanted and putting it aside, and recently started doing the odd bit of tanking when people started going away for their Summer.

Then 3.2 hit...

Now everyone and their grandmother is doing heroics to get as many Emblems of Conquest as they can in order to get the best gear that they can. There's nothing wrong with that. I'm doing it too. I like to make my Warrior the best ass-kicking machine I can just like everyone else. The problem is that, while the number of tanks we had before were sufficient for the odd Heroics runs and the occasional forays into a raid, now that people are flocking to Heroics like mad there aren't enough tanks for all the groups that want to go.

Supply & Demand

Not that I'm complaining mind you. I've gotten to practice at something I pretty much never did 'til recently (apart from DPSing at endgame 70 I also healed on my priest alt) and I'm actually finding I'm not bad at it and it's actually kind of fun. Not fun enough to switch my main spec though, I love my Fury spec too much. But I'm now probably one of many people who are getting to try out something new and earn a nice chunk of Emblems while doing it.

Sounds fine to me :)

UPDATE: Fields of Honor Loot Card EU giveaway {WoW}

Jul 1st 2009 7:03AM Madre de Dios! Es El Pollo Diablo!

err.....I mean El Pollo Grande

Sorry, I was channelling The Curse of Monkey Island there :D

Win one of five TCG codes today on WoW Insider {WoW}

May 19th 2009 7:52AM Well, there's no mention of any region being left out of the chance at these codes, so as a lowly EU player I'm throwing my name into the hat with a certain amount of hope :)

Enter to win one of six loot card codes from WoW Insider and WoWTCGLoot {WoW}

May 13th 2009 5:49PM My favourite item is the humble Snowball. There's nothing funnier than standing behind your raidleader, throwing a snowball at him while he's explaining tactics and then him suddenly stopping and saying "Oi, who threw that?"

I laugh every time :D

European extended weekly maintenance: 6th May 2009 {WoW}

May 6th 2009 4:45AM Most, if not all the realms are back up now anyway. Not exactly 'extended' :)

UPDATE: Blood of Gladiators Loot Card EU giveaway {WoW}

Apr 15th 2009 5:36AM Those new loot cards are interesting, but the idea of breaking out a Foam Sword Rack in the middle of a raid just makes me smile :)
