Many of You Probably Saw This Coming

Thanks for the good times guys.

Some times Blizzard just does right thing. The attunement quests and requirements were a really large part of guild stress. Removing these requirements are an excellent idea.

Not enough Hybrid from a Hybrid

Valandur emails me and says (this is slightly stripped down):
I have never wanted to be a pure tank or a pure healer. I figured that since a pure retribution build had little utility for raids, I would be a hybrid.

...I went to the Armory and looked for upgrades to my current mix of greens and blues. There is NOTHING that has more +spell damage than what I am currently wearing. Which means not only am I useless on raids, but there is no chance of a reward that will make me more effective in a hybrid role in raids. Blizzard has only created gear that will benefit a healadin, a tankadin or a ret pally that is only concerned with white damage.
This is why I loved Judgement so much. But now in today's game it is rather impossible.

Nihilum vs DnT

I find these EU vs US threads funny and interesting on a geopolitical level.

Edit: Grats to Nihilum in Illidan.

One Dreaded Final

So I have one last thing to do and then I'm finished with this stupid course. Loading myself up for a four-hour session of a hand numbing experience. I got six points already from the seminars, all I need is 19 points or more to pass. Here's what I know so far: Anarchy is what states make of it, postermodernism is stupid and the HDI is probably better measurement versus the GDP.

This has nothing to do with WoW except the fact that, if there's anything I've learned is that playing this game sure makes me subpar when it comes to educational performance. It is actually making me contemplate whether I should quit this game all together because my education is by far more important than this game. Hell, it's not only education, but social life. It really pains me when I reflect back upon how much I've sacrificed socially just to play my characters. Maintaining a blog by browsing endless posts on the main forum and all that jazz just adds another layer of stress on top of it.

Really, when playing WoW, you're using up the same entertainment time as when if you were watching TV. Would you watch TV, like, 6 or 8 hours a day? Would you leave a party just so you could go home and watch TV? Anyone who does that just makes me think of a couch potato with a mustard-stained wife-beaters garment and that shower with a rag tied up on the end of a stick.

I could play this game forever. I really could. But, I'm 21 years old. I've spent the last 2-3 years of my life playing this game. I really don't see how I can go on forever. When I put the blog on hold earlier is was cause of many contributing factors, and one of them the very reason I am giving right now.

Two months and four more days is left on my European vacation (fortunate to have a relatively permanent settlement over here). When I get back, I don't know if I'll ever end up re-subscribing.

Edit: I just did it and finished one hour ago. Huzzah!

Shattered Dreams

Doh, I was preparing to go to BlizzCon....but then I evaluated my financial situation. So I'm not going anymore. I'm not that bothered about it. I'll eventually get to play Starcraft II and the second WoW expansion anyway. Beta, all and all, while fun, kinda ruins the experience of "finally" getting the box, installing the game and playing it for the first time. It did so for me for Warcraft 3 at least.

Anyone else planning going though?

Tier 5 Weapons!

Thanks Msmart for giving me this link with class weapons which "look" like they are a part of the set.

Here's the Pally weapon.

Here's it's stats from a raid drop.
