Now Playing Tracks

metaneira:

A few months ago I was playing World of Warcraft — as is my wont — and was mindlessly listing gemstones in the auction house. Though I usually try to ignore the in-game chat channels, I couldn’t help but notice one shaman asking for help with his gear. Now, if you’ve ever been on…

This is why you should never be mean to people genuinely trying to learn. They ask for help to play better, you mock them, then complain when they show up in your LFRs and perform poorly? Well, whose fault is that?

It would appear I have 3 types of people enjoying my Undercity map - people who need a map of Undercity, people who agree that, if you get lost in Undercity, you’re a goober*, or people who love my mad MS Paint skillz.

*Goober indicates I’m not actually being hostile, I actually use that term almost affectionately.

Because I literally just saw someone argue that Undercity is confusing to navigate because it has “multiple rings”. Oh, you mean it has organisation?

Now please point me to the fire escape exits.

In the event of a fire, please jump into the green river. Wait, that stuff is flammable. Well, we haven’t gotten to installing safety features in the Undercity just yet. So, mages, warlocks, shaman, hunters, and those with the cooking and engineering professions may not enter the Undercity.

My son, the day you were born, the very forests of Lordaeron whispered the name Arthas.

My child, I watched with pride as you grew into a weapon of righteousness.

Remember, our line has always ruled with wisdom and strength. And I know you will show restraint when exercising your great power.

But the truest victory, my son, is stirring the hearts of your people. I tell you this, for when my days have come to an end, you shall be King.

**I found the first image via Google. The charm is not mine, but when I tried to use “visit webpage” to give proper credit, I was sent to a “page not found” error.

Quick anatomy lesson, folks. The parts circled in red is where the wing would attach to the body. The long line that, in this picture, is along the inside of the wings? Yeah, that’s the limb that “steers” and flaps the wing, which if you look at birds and bats is located along the top/outside edge of the wing. I’m getting increasingly annoyed with wings being depicted like this - they are backwards and, anatomically, make 0 sense. You can still have them facing the right way and streamlined, as seen in the second photo (credit to elisafox-stock)

While I don’t quite do all this (and ignore haste plateaus YOLOSWAGROFLBBQ), I did used to sit around calculating ways to increase my dps, even if it was just be 50 or so, doing agaility > attack power > dps conversions and adding in crit chance.

Then we got wowreforge and everything got easy. But still, having done lots of this stuff the hard way, I can attest that the last frame is an accurate representation of what it used to be like.

Tonight, my Flex team finally downed Garrosh. It was… a very trying ordeal. But, we did it, and everyone (myself included) was/is/are very proud.

So, I went to watch the Cloud Serpents on the Timeless Isle to unwind. So pretty.

This asshole. Look at this ridiculous perfect amazing tank with him 3mil hp. <3 I wanted to hug him. I didn’t. I was too shy.
