Oct 18th 2011 3:01PM Really loved that. The orc is so lovely. My heart went out to him. :)
Oct 16th 2011 11:40AM This was exactly why I forced myself to create Bravetank because I thought it was ridiculous I was too scared to tank yet wanted to try it. I rolled a Pally because I have a ret Pally in the 80s so thought I would at least know the basics of the class which should make it easier to get to grips with tanking as Prot. Then I made my poor husband roll a healer because I didn't want to go in the dungeons on my own! Then I starting writing about my experiences in my Bravetank blog (http://www.bravetank.wordpress.com) as a form of therapy I think after each traumatic experience! Everything that could go wrong did & does, but also some really lovely things too (one person in Earth Song Falls was so sweet I nearly wept in gratitude!). Now I use Maps for Tanks too http://mapsfortanks.com/ - fantastic resource since one of my main stresses as a tank is being expected to know the way round. But I am still scared. So started my Raggy Dolls guild- the guild for all who are scared to PuG to join and know the group will be supportive, helpful, completely friendly etc. I have 4 people plus husband in it so far!! But it will mean one day I hope that I can tank Zul'Farrak (I know it's low level but I have a phobia about that bit on the stairs) knowing that if we wipe we can just laugh and everyone will remember it is just a game and we are all real people with feelings behind the monitor.
Sep 30th 2011 4:36PM I love Maps for Tanks. It's such a great idea & so useful. When I first started tanking I'd go through the dungeon as dps first, trying to memorise the best way round for when I did it as a tank. No need now!
Also - can I post a link to my blog here too? It would mean extra work for Maps for Tanks though if it came to be. I'm making the case for Level 1 Dungeons! :)
Sep 25th 2011 3:56AM I love playing my elemental shaman. I too struggled with my dps until I got a spell priority add on - but I do feel like I'm cheating using it. It tells me when flame shock has come off & when lava burst is ready & when to use Earth Shock, but I know I should basically be seeing those things myself. I guess that's true of most addons though. But my ele shaman is probably one of my favourite characters to play. I do miss how awesome I used to feel as enhancement wielding the two weapons and having the windfury proc though.
Sep 24th 2011 3:29PM Does it matter if someone posts a link in a reply to a topic they are interested in? You are allowed to post 3 as I understand it. Sorry my comment was not detailed enough for you & too generic. I really do like the look of those mounts & had read that information on Twitter yesterday! Nothing more than that to say really. But I am a reader of WoW Insider and perfectly entitled to post a reply to a topic I'm interested in. You don't need to read it. And you certainly don't need to comment in response. And of course you don't need to click on my signature link.
Sep 22nd 2011 4:39PM The tutorial systems are often good in consoles. I don't play many but I remember the early bits of Metal Gear Solid-learning to sneak around those boxes! My husband just mentioned the learning to ride in Red Dead Redemption. And in my latest blog post I mention one of my favourites- the licence system in Gran Turismo. Not sure if the newest versions still have that but I loved it. I know early quests in the starter zones of WoW do some of this but I think there could be more- including very specific tutorials on learning to play your class in a way that's needed in groups and raids.
Sep 20th 2011 2:13PM I'm always in a quandary in Brewfest as I'm teetotal & so are my toons!! Have to stick to your principles don't you?! They need some options for the alcohol free amongst us!!
Sep 19th 2011 1:40AM It was amazing in Karazhan! Howwever, my shaman did not survive long - I only had to heal my husband once or throw out the odd spell & I seemed to pull aggro from everywhere & die! Will wait until she's in her 80s. So I brought my level 82 Ret Pally in instead & that was great. I loved the atmosphere, the music, I never knew WoW had anything quite like that. It was great. But we got to the opera house & came a cropper with Romulus and Julianna. They would not die & eventually we did! Definitely doing it again though & definitely going to try some of ther others. I hope Molten Core is as easy as you say. I have no problem with easy!!
Sep 19th 2011 1:30AM Thanks Zappel. I'll make sure I always put Dev on myself from now on. While the group did run in all sorts of directions they were at least friendly & resilient (it was only after what felt like the 100th corpse run that one decided to leave!). As I said above I have so much to learn & I'm pretty terrified about doing it without a healer as supportive as my husband! But I'm going to take a deep breath & go for it. Thank you for reading the blog post!
Sep 19th 2011 1:13AM Thank you for your comment Andrew & I would never vote you down & I hope noone else does either. Everything you say is completely fair. The post was meant largely ironically- showing how unreasonable, impatient and overreacting I can be in a dungeon! I agree my husband's comment was innocuous -I make that point subtly in the blog post. And that's why it ends as it does. I'm not putting my poor husband through that again (though masochist as he is he is insisting he still wints to heal me!). I have so much to learn. Someone else has pointed out the HoP/Lay on Hands issue- for which I'm very grateful. I think you have to read some of my other posts to see who I am. I laugh at no one harder than myself & I blame no one more than myself. But thank you for reading & for your advice.
