Slowing Down a Bit

The Tichondrius re-roll is looking okay. We've got a decent number of members in the 40's bracket, and Zy just broke 50 a short while ago. However, because there are still core members leveling in lower brackets, and the whole point of our re-roll was to roll together, I've been taking some time away from that 'lock to get in some good old fashioned PvP with the original.

Zomg, noob alert.

For the first time in almost 8 months, I've respecced into the Destruction talent tree, and oh my, I'm a bit rusty. It's taking me a little while to get the mechanics down again - especially given the fact that it's a purely PvP spec, but I lack the Resilience to back it up. Burst damage is amazing, but if I get two or three DPS melee classes slamming on me, I'm toast. Hell, I even lost to a Hunter in a duel on the first day of my respec, thrice! So, yeah, I have a long way to go, and while I've been tempted to eventually respec back into an Affliction build, I think I'll be keeping this one for a while. It's so much fun. =)

But even with the fun I'm having with PvP and doing well balancing time on both servers, the time I invest will definitely be taking a hit. I'm back at work, which has just completely drained me of the energy I used to keep awake late at night. And the Alex drama is rearing it's ugly head in the form of Raeka-esque relationship nonsense that I definitely have an opinion about. But since I should probably just keep to myself, a little extra time away wouldn't hurt. Just because other people don't have self-control doesn't mean I shouldn't either.

So after this post, I'm gonna focus a bit more on the Warlock and related issues as the majority of topics you'll see. This personal stuff is boring, especially if you don't know me that well, and I apologize. But, since I'm re-learning Destro and everything 'lock-related, do expect that the content will improve.

I'm not a narcissist after all. I swear.

I'm racking my brain trying to think of one. All that come to mind are retired. =(

Find a bad druid. Just tell him to use cyclone, feral charge and bash.

Jay said...

cycloneeeeee works properly in the next patch! Or at least it has been on the ptr. It has actual diminishing returns... weeee.

Jez attempted to get me to log onto Jade and help with his Kara group late last night and I was like... I can't do it. The ONLY time I can bear to play horde anymore is when I am in dire need of herbs for allyside. I just can't bring myself to do it... horde on Alex totally ruins the gaming experience, eh? Maybe it's just me.. dunno.

On another, I'm hungry. FIX ME SAMMACHIS DAMN IT. :D

Zomg, speaking of sandwiches. I tried to make one of those egg things from Vendetta the other day. How does Blawle make them for you without letting the yolk run all over the bread? Or is it supposed to?

Anyway, still can't think of a good Druid that isn't already spoken for. Lycanno would have been the easy choice, but he's not around anymore. :(

cyclone is affected by DR's in the arena's atm on live.

and yes, get your res up or at least start planning ahead for your gear. any clothies, including locks will be taking dirt naps against geared melee. even high raiding locks is no exception.

Have picked up some Resil gear. Will start working on the good stuff shortly.

Jay said...

the egg runs out on one side, jago... but the other side is usually the 'pretty' side. you have to butter the toast on both sides before making it ;)

JAGOeX said...

Heheh, will try in the morn.
