My key upgraded to Mythic 5 Upper Karazhan… which made me immediately think… “why the fuck is this a mythic dungeon?”. However we managed to largely steamroll the entire dungeon other than the final boss who is just an asshole. Thankfully in spite of my death we moved forward and the remaining folks managed to get the kill moving us forward again. I remember Karazhan being a boar to get through when we were trying to run it to get to the bonus boss… but now it seems like it is probably a completely reasonable thing to do in a timely manner. I think the fact that everyone has Concordance now… pushes up the gear levels to the point where you can just take a lot of abuse making all of the mechanics easier. … [Read more...] about Nonsense Managed
I am so immensely happy at how well the guild has worked out. At first I had my doubt as to whether or not our guild would gain traction, and if breaking away onto our own was a good thing. Any of those doubts have long since exploded as we are growing the way we have always grown… organically through friends and family. Delevax quoted field of dreams to me the other day “build it and they will come”… and to some extent that is exactly what has happened. To give evidence of how awesome the guild is… at one point last night there were four women involved in a rather heated discussion about who the best Doctor was over guild chat. … [Read more...] about Hot Tub Party
Right now my goal is to hit level 12, which will give me access to a few really nice cross class abilities. First we have Featherfoot, which increases evasion by 25% for 15 seconds. Next we have Second Wind, that is a variable heal that builds off attack power. Lastly we have Internal Release, which increases Critical Rate by 30% for 15 seconds. I have heard that the Marauder ability Berserk which increases attack power by 50%, will greatly buff Second Wind. While Berserk keeps you from using special attacks for 30 seconds after its duration… it could be a handy combo in a clutch situation where you are tanking and need a large heal NOW. … [Read more...] about Pugilism
As the name indicates, the new mount does run on horsepower ... just not the type of horse you’d expect. Remember those horse-on-a-stick toys (horse stick? Stick horse? Do these actually have a proper name?) that some people used to have when they were younger? I say some people because I know I definitely wasn’t one of them. All I remember from my childhood was Tamagotchi, Webkinz, and Tech Decks (I turn 22 next week). Anyway, picture that horse stick toy as a video game mount and you have “Maximum Horsepower.” It’s actually a pretty clever idea. The pun just makes it all the more funnier too. … [Read more...] about Wizard101: Ride Like the Wind, Horse-guy!
