PvP tips for new Hunters

Monday, May 9th, 2011

Over the past few weeks I’ve been spending more of my time in battlegrounds and arena on my Rogue, as well as leveling yet another alt – a dirty Warlock. It’s only in the last couple of weeks that I’ve been able to find time for some regular PvP action. One thing I’ve noticed is [...]

Soloing Magtheridon’s Lair for fun and profit

Friday, February 25th, 2011

Previously I have written about soloing old instances for fun and profit. Today I thought I’d write about a Burning Crusade era raid that, with patience, can be soloed quite easily by a level 85 character. I’m talking about Magtheridon’s Lair.

Soloing Molten Core for fun and profit

Wednesday, February 2nd, 2011

A while ago I wrote about soloing older dungeons and raids for fun and profit. Today I thought I’d give a brief overview of the Classic Molten Core raid. For a majority of classes it can be quite easily soloed at level 85.

Worgen or the case for aesthetics over numbers

Monday, January 24th, 2011

My recent post on choosing the ‘best’ race for the Hunter class caused me to reflect on my decisions. For min/max’ing there’s little doubt that the 1% increased chance to critically hit makes the Worgen the number one choice for Alliance Hunters. For non-min/max’ers there are other factors to consider though, and for me the [...]

What is the best race for the Hunter class?

Saturday, January 15th, 2011

The moment Cataclysm launched I immediately race changed my Night Elf Rogue to a Worgen. I’d been thinking about that change since Worgen were announced and a Worgen Rogue just made sense to me. The Worgen racial abilities also lent themselves to the Rogue class.

Basic Argaloth Raid Guide

Tuesday, January 11th, 2011

Argaloth is a massive pit lord demon and the first boss in Baradin Hold, Cataclysm’s version of the Vault of Archavon raid. For most players, Argaloth is realistically the first raid boss they’ll drop in Cataclysm. In many ways he acts as a Damage Per Second (DPS)/ready check to see if you’re ready to step [...]

How to trigger on use trinkets via a macro

Monday, November 15th, 2010

There are a few ‘on use’ enchants or trinkets available in the game, but to get the most out of them, you really need to remember to use them on every cool down. If you’re anything like me, remembering is hard work!

Does the Alliance still suck at PvP?

Monday, November 8th, 2010

A couple of months ago I posed the thought provoking question, Does the Alliance suck at PvP?”. Back then I was still fence sitting, I was levelling another Horde to 80

Does the Alliance suck at PvP?

Tuesday, August 24th, 2010

It was a tough weekend for battlegrounds. I spent a significant portion of my game time trying to grind out honor for the Medallion of the Alliance on my Rogue. The random battleground finder was not my friend. Over the weekend I was thrown in to a total of 11 Eye of the Storm matches, [...]
