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.

Posted in MMORPG with tags , , , on February 10, 2014 by theerivs

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? 

Holy Crusade

Posted in MMORPG with tags , , , on September 12, 2013 by theerivs

815249-bigthumbnailSo one of my favorite bloggers Bossy Pally updated her blog post.  At first I couldn’t find my blog in her blog roll. I was a little bummed. Then I saw my blog under Holy Paladins. It is true I do play Holy Paladin, but unlike my brethren I just PvP. I noticed not many bloggers of the Holy Paladin kind take part in PvP, or if they do I don’t see too much writing done about it.  As I consider it a HUGE honor to be on her blog roll. I felt remiss in my duties as a Holy Crusader of the Healing Arts, as I haven’t posted in a while on it. I’m going to rectify that, cause I am now on a holy crusade to get better PvP gear, and to help my new Alliance brethren.

Let’s start there. My old guild leader resurrected my very first guild on Alliance side of Garona. My very first toon was a Paladin, when WoW first started. I know glutton for punishment. When Battlegrounds came out, we left that guild behind, and started fresh horde side.  Well we’re back on the Alliance side.  I went with human male, I think humans just look the part of a Paladin.

I was a little upset at myself I wanted to stockpile more honor points. A couple things I noticed the Justice Points to Honor Points, and vice versa price has gone up . I remember it was 325 JP for 250 Honor. Now I think it’s 500. That’s just horse poop.  Anywho i had enough honor to buy two pieces, I got the Tyrannical Shield, and Chest piece.  I got some major trinket problems that is my next goal get better trinkets. I’m still rocking Dreadful…YUCK!

Gemming Priorities I think should be…

Int – For Mana Pool/Power

PvP Power – For well power

Spirit – for Mana Regen

Haste – For Speed.

Well I’m looking forward to rocking the heals, and sharing my crusade with you.

To Gank or Not To Gank

Posted in MMORPG with tags , on August 19, 2013 by theerivs

179917_10150975584644823_1032653590_nBeing back on a PvP Server again, I come to an ethical decision, or is it moral at times. Should I ruin someones day by crushing their hopes and dreams, and ganking them. Making them waste time to run back.

Sure I hate it when it was done to me. I also remember the days in Vanilla where Stranglethorn Vale was a ganking hotzone, damn near battleground. I also remember dodging into caves, and hiding when upper levels came through. Should I show compassion for those lowbies who are just trying to have some fun, and level their alts. Didn’t I too, feel the frustration when the same douchebag killed me over, and over again.

I should but I don’t. I’m a hate filled vessel, and I love giving back what was done to me. We do not forgive, We do not forget…I wish I could hear their cuss words yelling at me, calling me insults as I spit on them with an emote. For me there was no compassion as I knelt, and bowed to those higher level then me, and still crushed. me. There will be no mercy here, so if you are red….you are dead.


The Joys of a PvP Server

Posted in MMORPG with tags , , , on July 23, 2013 by theerivs

talladega-nights-the-ballad-of-ricky-bobby-20060804060738880Well one thing I did miss are some of the awesome unexpected surprises that are on a PvP Server. Back in the day (read Vanilla) I use to play a mage on Thunderlord, a PvP server,  and let me tell you, those were the days of high adventure. Well fast forward alot of my other time I spent on PvE servers so some of that fun was missing. Like I would go on ganking runs when I was upset, and just kill every noob I saw as I traversed the breath and length of Azeroth. Yes I gank, and yes I’m an asshole.

Well last night working on my Warlock, who was 51 was jumped by a level 46 rogue . I laughed, and I wish he could of heard me. So I crushed him into the dust. After a few minutes I was just running along….*BOOM* one shotted dead. As I look to the sky I see a 90 hunter flying away. As I lay in the dust, I contemplate going to get my mage and teach that mofo a lesson, but I figured he wasn’t worth the effort.

Cause I’m a Warlock, I got Soulstone BIOTCH!

Bottom line I really do like PvP servers better, it keeps me on my toes and adds a little drama into the mix.
