• Horde Vs Alliance: Pandaria Capitals

    So, a while I was wishing out loud in my guild that that Alliance Pandaria capital was less “fail”. Most of this is due to the fact that the way that the capitals are set up

    Horde Level 1:
    Alliance Level 1:
    Horde Level 2:
    Alliance Level 2:

    Notice how the horde have 2 Inns and one of the inns being closer to the poratals whereas the alliance layout is much more difficult to get to reasonable things and get where you want.

    Now here comes the difficult decision: Last time I did Disney, and it was interesting and hot. I’m not so wild about doing a Disney trip this go around so I have 4 ideas floating around in my head. I could go out to the beach, I could do Disney (though I’m not so keen on Land), I could organize a trip to go see “Thor 2″ in a theater, I could start composing my thoughts for how to edit the World of Podcasts segment for GroupQuest or this program.

    Monday: Fly back home

    So that’s my extravaganza. If you’re interested in doing any of these fun things, hit me up on twitter before the con and I’ll give my cell number (as data access in the hall is going to be pitiful). I might even have a few USB battery packs on me to give you a boost on your mobile device (assuming you have a USB charger).

  • Hasteal, Smiter of strong creatures

    WoWScrnShot_072213_204354So an update on my TrialMan.

    No deaths, Level 10, now taking the Shadow specialization.

    Once I had the Power word Shield, I could Shield up, and then smite at a distance all the creatures. I could even take on multiple mobs and much higher level mobs. Just before I logged out, I tried a Level 15 creature which burnt through my shield and took me down some. This tells me that SPriests are OP

  • Hasteal, Human Priest of the Alliance

    So, I’ve decided to take on the TrialMan Challenge hosted by the Chaos Portal Show. I’ve decided to add the following additional challenges on to my effort.

    • No Quests
    • No Deaths
    • No Professions
    • No Addons
      • Only exception to this is the oQueue addon that has no bearing on this challenge

    Tonight was my first night of doing the challenge. I’ve learned that I need to appreciate how refined my main’s UI (elvUI) is compared to the base blizzard layout.

    Total Invested Time: 2 hours
    Level: 5
    Current Location: Goldshire.

    So, If you’ve been following the tweet storm today, Cold of Cold’s Gold Factory has launched a completely unwarranted attack on twitter.  A friend of Cold, DemonicRic DMed me on twitter a few nights ago.  I decided to show some interest because I had previously supported the attempt to get him his vision back.

    Flash forward a single day and he unfollows me.  I have nothing wrong with people following and unfollowing me at will.  What I do have a problem with is them sharing the private conversation that we had with others that are not connected to the conversation.  So since they decided to allude to the conversation that supposedly puts me in a bad viewpoint, I present the full story.
