Hello, Old Friend (WoW)

Earlier this week Psychochild commented on a post that WoW was for all intents and purposes my ex, and that I was “lingering on a now broken long-term relationship that still tugs at your heart.” It’s a lovely analogy, and perfectly on point for me. WoW is that ex that I’m probably better off without but I’ll always miss what we had in the good days. That being said, I heard that my ex had come back to...

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...
