The latest dispatches from Azeroth

June 2006 Archives

A group of intrepid Ravens - Aberas, Leafshine and Strobmoli (and later Andromache) went undead-hunting in the Burning Steppes, looking to beat back the Scourge incursions. They had considerable success against the undead, but with the arrival of Andromache decided to change tack to exploit their dual-mage capability. With Aberas and Leaf healing, Strob would run into the midst of the invaders, looping round the crystal, running back to the party surrounded by around a dozen angry ghosts and zombies, who were met with a flurry of AOE and combat spells. With the spellcasters managing 25-50,000 points of damage (each) in the short but bloody battles, the undead stood little chance and the main issue arising was the difficuty of looting when two-dozen corpses lay atop each other. Eventually, the Scourge sent engineers to repair the crystal and the merry band decided to pick some of them off. They very nearly succeeded but were foiled by a mass of adds (from people being feared into them). Moral of the story: stick to five-man groups for the engineers and big nasties! (Nett proceeds of the counterattack were a fair amount of silver, some letters for delivery to Light's Hope Chapel and 1000+ Argent Dawn rep).

Yahda yahda yahda.. Mages hit too hard, Warlocks hit harder, Rogues hit the mostest, but none of you should because... Instead you should all eat oatmeal and wear sandles like Priests and Druids (who are nicest) and stand back and watch the Pallies and Warriors showing off in their armour.

I won't say anything about hunters, no matter how I am provoked.

Ok, I will, I find hunters relationships with their pets creepy, although not as creepy as 'lock pets. And this playing dead business and then getting up to brandish tattered bits of eletrical equipment that never work is quite tedious too.

You will have guessed, I have no intention of towing the party line in this email. I have decided, in the style of monomaniacs throughout history, that someone must speak out for dps'rs and that someone is me.

The summary is; you guys are dreaming if you think that the easy life for meatshield and medical accountant manifestos that have done the rounds in the last few days are going to wash in the end game content. Life, my slow witted plate wearing and quick witted but timid palid skinned god bothering friends, is far harder than that.

First though, a reminder.

In this game one size does not fit all.

Druid PVE ownage!

Started leveling Elunae up again, and am having a blast :-) But one thing I forgot is how fast feral druids are to level. I enclose for your admiration a screenshot taken after 1 hr 7 mins of grinding this afternoon, in which time I sustained a 68k/hr exp rate (of course this was with rest bonus, but i defy any class to beat feral druids for fastest exp/hr grinding). Dinged 48 in the process. Grats me! Dale


Once Upon a time, not so very long ago, there were five brave Ravens who went to see the nasty dead baron.

They sneaked, sneaked, sneaked in the back door and started happily killing the nasty undead gribblies that live in the ruined town of Stratholme. Sadly, children, none of them had brought their Medallions of the 70s, or whatever thy're called, so we couldn't recruit the nice chap with the hammer to help us with the baron.

These five brave heroes took down four mini-bosses with nary a bead of sweat on their brows. Well, maybe a little sweat on Eldenar's, but that plate / hessian pants combination must be both hot and, well, prone to chafing...
