>< Went to a funeral…

My Great-Aunt died. Uh-yup. She was loved and shall be missed, but I have to help comfort people now. ….. She was really cool.

Right, I’m not dead, I’m back.

Italy was fun, I got to spend time with my aging family units, and today or tomorrow the feral talent review will go up.

Florence is awesome.

Venice is awesome. (GONDOLIERS)

…and I’m sorry I missed the little burst of site views on the 12th…. thank you cousin.

Kidnapped to Go Camping

SAVEEEE MEEEEEE!! but i’ll be back on thursday.

Not really related to WoW.

Every now and then, the older(46+) generation is good with computers. Even rarer, the 46+ year-old  who plays World of Warcraft. But recently, my mother has decided to use a blog to educate people. I urge this in the hope that someday, she will become truly comfortable with technology, even if she can’t operate  World of Warcraft, and she wouldn’t survive 15 seconds in a raid. She at least knows how to use an IPhone, and she can always fall back on my dad. And yet, even after I help her with her blog, there will be another problem, and if I’m not available, my father doesn’t know how to blog either. How many of you have actually taught your parents how to operate something after they need help on it? After all, otherwise the same thing will happen again and again.

There is, however, a rare case of P.E.C, or Parent Electronic Competency. When this happens they are often in an electronics-oriented job, and they  still cannot surpass a 6-year old on an IPhone. They can program, they can engineer, but they fail at the simpler tasks, and at some games, mostly MMOs, RPGs, and RTS’. Just think how complex an MMORPG would be for them.

So we end up with not that many old people in World of Warcraft. The Alliance side often loses the maturity that could be gained from such an influx of older, more mature people. They are just confounded by electronics, and they retreat into their shell of “In my day we didn’t have…” to make up for why they cannot use such an article. How much is lost from their skills of patience, of analyzing, that they had to learn when they were our age? So, have you taught your parent something today?

A druid friend of mine has gone Moonkin. While only level 52, she can provide insight to the leveling moonkin, and I’m going to let her post now and then. This will result in more posts for the reader, and I will figure out a way to have them in their own page for people to look at, even if I have to make a page like ‘about’ and link all the posts.

And now, for something completely different.

Restoration druids are good. Feral druids are good. Balance druids are good.

There will be changes

I’m messing around with the site’s appearance, and I finally figured out how to insert pictures, so, from way back, this is how I tank when I’m cranky:

Go to for the bubbles for picture

Grrrrrrrrrrr at dps who assume I can automatically grab all aggro and hold it after one second!!! GRRRR!

/growl+glare

Spellpower, Haste, etc.

With haste changes, I have been pushed back (AGAIN) from the soft haste cap -.- . I have… (runs off to check) wait, dang, I logged in feral gear! Well, I have 151 haste in feral XD I’ll have to log on later and check my haste in restoration. But I’m going to be shifting my gems around, partially because I have (zomg) straight intellect gems from when I actually needed them. Sad, no? I’ll be shifting those out, getting a few +Sp+Haste gems and a few +SP gems. I also currently have Insightful Earthsiege Diamond and I want to switch that out for Ember Skyflare Diamond. If that doesn’t work out, I’ll shuffle my gems AGAIN! But I seriously needed to overhaul my gems anyways, and I have a few I can ask the resident guild jewelcrafter to cut into epics. I’ve even got uncut gems for nummmmmy spellpower. What more do I want in life? I’m going to take a look at my feral spec and overhaul that also. I’m currently at….well, bad haste.

Your regular post has interrupted in favor of linking this : http://www.wowarmory.com/character-achievements.xml?r=Gilneas&cn=Alienea&gn=Dark+Company  I GOT THROUGH ALL OF TOC 25 MAN IN A PUG. Admittedly, it was mostly a guild run by Martyr. I got no trophies, but my resto spec got an overhaul and 2 new pieces of gear! I should’ve only gotten one, but the only other druid in the group had also won something so we both rolled. And then she tried to guilt me -.- If I hadn’t been pondering in /g to let her have it, I would’ve been overwhelmed by guilt. <sigh>. But… I was amazed. Sure, we did no hardmodes, but with 3/4 a guild and 1/4 PuGs, only wiping 2-3 times is amazing. I went the entire run thinking ‘omg they are going to say I suck any minute now.’ But I collected my orbs on the Val’kyr, and except on the wipes no more than 3 people would be down. Now if only no one had needed Misery’s End…. but congrats to Grievous for winning it =D. So we get shiny achievements, a sense of well-being, and an increasing need to get a Violet Proto-Drake
