About my new Hunter.

I've never played a Hunter before, not seriously at least.
Before I moved to Fundrak, I had a level 15 Orc Hunter on Firetree, who I have deleted because "eh".
Now, I'm trying again. I've got a level 17 Worgen Hunter, and I'm slightly bored of the Mastiff, because a dog with a dog is just dog, dog.
But not just any pet will do, oh no.
It's got to be awesome. It has to be one of the most amazing pets ever. In fact, I even got a little help from some friends of mine to give me a few tips on decision making.

And Then I Had No Addons

After what I would describe as a clusterfuck of a patch last week, whether Blizzards fault or my own I'm honestly not sure which, I was unable to play WoW for a week or so.
During this week, I played Minecraft, played the TCG with Annine and got back in to miniature wargaming.

Once I got back on to WoW (aka the past 24 hours) I completely forgot about updating Addons before tanking an HoT dungeon.
Now, not that these things are hard, but when you don't have any addons telling you anything, I noticed it gets a bit trickier.

About accidental death.

Every guild has one. That one guy, no matter how talented a player he is, no matter what his gear is like, you can count on him to die nine times out of ten, or your money back.

In our guild, that guy is Grimknight, who wishes to remain nameless.
Molten Core? He died there while 85.
Regular Cataclysm dungeons at a 380+ ilvl? Check.
Managing to fall off his mount and die in Stormwind while I'm writing this article? Oh yeah.

But do we bag him out for it? Of course we do, we wouldn't be a proper guild if we didn't.
Do we get shitty about it? Nah.
Do we stop him raiding with us because of it? Sweet Celestia no!
Do we try and help him? Sometimes, when it wouldn't be funnier just to watch him die.

But the best part about it?
He gets in on the joke, he knows that sometimes, bad things are gonna happen in a raid, and there's nothing you can do about it.

So I thought I'd take some time to talk about how you can improve your survivability, no matter what sort of hairy situations you get yourself in to.

And then Blizzard screwed something up.

I've had my launcher open, "optimizing" my files since 10am.
It's now 8pm, and the bar has not moved an inch. Not even a millimeter of movement.

So to wile away the hours, I'm playing Minecraft. Enjoy my treehouse, still WIP.


Apparently whining on the internet works, because it's started moving. It's moving slowly, but it's moving...
