You are not Prepared

Posted in MMORPG with tags , , on February 17, 2014 by theerivs

World_of_Warcraft_DraeneiWell either am I really…New Patch is coming…but I thought I had time to bank honor, now I don’t think I do.  I’m glad I spent my conquest on my shoulders which was good.

I vowed not to get collectors editions ever again..but you bastards at Blizzard are tempting me with this. 

Also as we prepare for the 90 boost feature I wonder what toon I want to boost. I have a pet class already so I don’t think hunter. I was thinking perhaps a shaman…or maybe a druid. We’ll see. Does anyone know if it’s just 1 90 boost…or if it’s 1 90 boost per server or something like that?

I also wish I had more time to better gear my Paladin as well…oh well I guess I am not prepared at all..but I’m looking forward to the new season and I hope I get some good gear.

Warlocks of Honor

Posted in MMORPG with tags , on February 11, 2014 by theerivs

warlock4So this weekend I went on a massive PvP spree, I garnered a couple of pieces for my set, as well as some Timeless Pieces as well. I got some pvp trinkets/ring/necklace. Here’s the plan to get my weapon this week, hopefully I’ll have it by the end of the week.  After the weapon it will be time to start banking honor, conquest, and justice. I don’t know when the new season starts exactly but I know it’s ending next Tuesday. I’m really enjoying myself in the Warlock role.

A couple things though, still don’t know which demon I should be using figured the Shivarra is best choice for Random BG’s. When and If I start Arenas I should probably use the Observer maybe.  I am sticking to Destro, it’s what I feel the most comfortable playing…most magelike LOL! Aside from gear I think I’m getting better play wise, I got some compliments. I need to learn some macros, and better with my fearing.

Overall though I think next season is gonna be pretty good if I stick to it, but for now I need more honor…I crave it, and your souls!


I’m a G.I.R.L.

1013239_378676922272667_595007548_nSo last night I’m in a random battleground (Gilneas) and I’m guarding the Waterworks, just minding my own business. Then a Night Elf Rogue guy comes sneaking behind me. He says, “Hey” I just reply, “Hello”. Then a gaggle of horde appear, about 3 or 4, and we wipe the floor with them. They return and we do the same thing. So he says in a lull of combat, “We make a good team” I reply, “We sure do”    He asks me to sit. I was like ok, but I’ll play along. He sits right behind me, almost spooning. He then goes, “This would be nice, maybe we can put flowers there.”

Thank god, more horde came and the BG ended. He was so good at killing shit, I didn’t want to break his heart and tell him that this Warlock chick has an extra staff hiding under her robe, and that I’m a G.I.R.L or Guy in Real Life.

Get Your PvEness out of My PvP

Posted in MMORPG with tags , , , on January 31, 2014 by theerivs

daisy_de_la_hoyaUsually I write a lovely recap post today, but something irked me.  Belghast wrote a lovely post, which other bloggers touched on, and a forum post. which delves into the issue.  I really have one thing to say to that.


First off I am not a hard core PvP’er by any means….but I am a PvP’er as opposed to a PvE’er. I have to deal with your crappy PvE all the time…FOR YEARS!. Remember Alterac Valley….that little BG that’s been around for YEARS!. Yeah it has PvE elements in it, that I despise. Why? Why do I need to wait for tanks to tank general, why do I need to to go get the mines for resources.

Also why do I need to go PvE for some BiS slot items for PvP.  Really? I have to put up with Carebears, and snotty nosed know it all kids who just stopped suckling at their mama’s teet.

Oh…you get ganked once in awhile. I really hope I’m the one ganking these people…revenge is a dish best served cold, and I got years of pent up rage just from AV…yeah 10+ hour slug fests build up a lot of anger.  So deal with it, and move on.


My Mortal Coil Brings All the Boys to the Yard

kaley-cuoco_l6A moment of silence for Kaley Cuoco for she is now a married woman, but I’m patient…oh so patient.

Anywho I’m rocking my awesome Warlock. I am about 72 right now. I went with the Affliction spec for now cause I hear in PvP that is the better spec for crappy gear, then when you get good gear go Destro.

Though I like Affliction spec, I prefer Demonology, or Destro…Demo is the fun spec I think. Destro is the I melt faces spec, and Affliction is I kill stuff slowly spec I think.

Can my Warlock friends answer a couple questions for me.

A> Gear- Do I need to gear differently for the specs?

B> When do you get the super cool demons, like the octopus one eyes guy, and which is better for raiding versus pvp?

C> It seems my Affliction sucks ass in the mana dept. Is there a rotation I should be using? Is there something I could be doing instead Rain of Fire with groups?

D> Is it me or does my robe make my human butt look big?

Well I look forward to the day I hit 90, and could PvP with the big dogs, until then grinding like a mofo.



Lessons I Need to Learn as a Holy PvPing Pally

Posted in MMORPG with tags , , , on October 30, 2013 by theerivs

noobI love playing a Holy Pally in PvP. I just do BG’s though I hear Arena is a real challenge for us Holy PvP Pallies these days. Just from the BG’s I have some lessons that I need to keep reminding myself on a regular basis.

5 Things I Need To Work On

5. Slow Down- Pallies have a speed buff, I have to remember to hold off a bit and let the people who actually do damage get there first. Once in a while I find myself standing alone for a few seconds before the cavalry comes.

4. Cooldowns – I need better management of my cooldowns. To always keep them up, I think part of the problem is my next problem

3. Macros – I just don’t use them, I’m old school keyboard masher, and I think that I need to up my level. The problem is I don’t think the macros that are good for raiding, are really good for pvp’ing but I good be wrong.

2. Better Gear – I just need to start playing more, I’ve been in the throes of Hearthstone. This being AV bonus week, it will go along way to getting some better gear.

1. Invincibility – Even though I’m wearing armor, I have to remind myself I can die pretty easily when surrounded by 20 enemies.


So there you have it, my weaknesses as a Holy Pally in PvP, though I do have some strengths and I do a fair job I think. I need alot of work, and the first step is admitting you have a problem


I need another Timeless Cloak

Posted in MMORPG with tags , on September 25, 2013 by theerivs

jaina-proudmooreSo I went to the Loot Pinata last night aka The Timeless Isle, and all I got was another damn Timeless Cloak, that makes 5 of them now I have, not including the ones I use on my Paladin. 

It got me to start thinking if this Timeless Loot any good for PvP. I mean we all have 74% resistance now, but it’s lack of PvP Power has me worried, I guess I can add a couple gems/and reforge but is that enough. 

This is something I have to research, any thoughts?
