So Games Are Art Again Now, Huh? (Ji Firepaw stuff)

Hey look, Herding Cats got its very own domain! If you have a blogroll link or bookmark, I’d appreciate it if you could update it to the new URL: lioreblog.com. Thanks a lot. —– Warning: ME3 spoilers Okay fine, I didn’t want to write about the Ji Firepaw debacle because other people have already written about it extensively and I bet y’all can guess what I think anyway. However, a few recent posts about...

Where is Bubble?!: a pvp guide for Scrolled holy pallies (WoW)

I am almost at level 81 on my paladin after running a few BGs, and I am starting to very slowly figure out what my buttons do. If you are thinking of using the Scroll of Resurrection to magically create a level 80 character, and plan to run Battlegrounds, be prepared to die. A lot. Quickly. Although Blizzard kindly grants scrolled characters a full set of green gear with stats suiting their main spec, your opponents generally have...

Scroll Me! An Azeroth Ressurrection

Totally as a fluke, I recieved no fewer than three Scrolls of Ressurrection in my email yesterday. I’m not sure why some friends suddenly felt it was “Liore Should Try WoW Again” day, but when serendipity speaks like that who am I to not listen? The Scroll acceptance process was well explained and fairly quick. I had to log into my Battle.net account (after remembering my password), and I could select which Scroll I...

4.3 and Finding the Line Between Too Easy and Too Tough (WoW)

I have fallen back in love with WoW this week. Part of it is that I stumbled into a nice little group of folks in my guild with whom I can run instances and get into trouble, and of course the arrival of Patch 4.3 helped a lot. It has not escaped my attention that the patch that returns Azeroth to a state more resembling the oh-so-casual Wrath of the Lich King expansion is the one that has everyone talking and playing. Is returning to...

Time to Wear Fancy Hats and Kill Deathwing (WoW)

By the time North America gets home from work today World of Warcraft will updated to patch 4.3, and it’s a doozy. Included in the patch are three new 5-man heroic instances, the divisive Looking for Raid system, Transmogrification (seriously, can Blizzard not say ‘appearance tab’ like everyone else ever?), a totally revamped Darkmoon Faire, and of course the potentially final raid of the expansion, Dragon Soul....

Preparing for Auction House War in 4.3 (WoW)

One of my absolute favorite things to do in MMOs is play the economy, whether it’s becoming a crafting baron or “daytrading” my way up the ladder. After switching servers in WoW recently I found myself with a dwindling gold reserve and less than profitable professions, so I decided to make cash from doing my dailies every da– ha ha ha. Just kidding. Clearly it was time to get back in the AH scene, but how to...
