Hello internet! (Hope TJ doesn't have the copyrighted)

Arena has started for Noobed and I again so this should make for amusing posts as you know how the two of us get along. I very muched realized why I can't get along with Noobed when it comes to his criticisms. It's not the fact that he is right. It's the fact that he comes across like a complete jackass when he is trying to tell you what you are doing wrong. I really feel justified in calling him the Gordon Ramsey of Arena.

I mentioned this to him and his response was something like... "Gordon Ramsey is GOD!" Most of the time when I am watching that Hell's Kicthen thing I am thinking, I would so punch him in the face. The problem with Noobed is, he aint got Gordon Ramsey's skills in the kitchen/arena.

He wonders why I am targeting the rogue. I am not beating on the rogue Noobed! I am Hamstringing the rogue in hopes that you Ghost Wolf that sorry geared Resto Shaman of your and head to the next zipcode. This while I have Sweeping Strikes going on so I am hitting both his and my guy anyways.

Alas, he wouldn't have as much ammunition if I didn't forget easy stuff like kill the damn Felhunter. I think he wants me to stay in the healers face more but I'm not sure this is the best thing in all situations since I am the Burst DPS. I can make a resto druid run for their life but I can't kill one easily and I can't leave the Rogue and Warrior beating on my healer. It's sticky. Probably gonna need to send Megs an email.

Below are the screenshots I managed to send before I passed out last night. I didn't take screenshots of all of the matches because my team was freaking out thinking I was lagging. Yes, I did tell them before hand that I would be screenshotting and taking notes. Sigh. The teams below were testing fights but nothing dramatically hard. Also, I have the list of the matches from Round 4 on. Not sure why I lost Round 1-3 but Round 1 and 3 were wins while Round 2 was a loss. The first name after the Round is who died first. I also posted the win or loss and team makeup.

Special note: Unbound's gear is not up to snuff in resilence department but the rest is very good. I think he is at +1600 heals.

Now, I don't have the fight that I think was Lock/Druid/Pally. We kill the lock and the Feral druid takes out Unbound rogue style. I start beating on the catform druid and he changes to bear at like 15%... he's dead!! I got em. He gets a heal and goes to 21% thanks to Mortal Strike. I figure Tazzy is right there next to the pally. ( I had told Tazzy that one of his main jobs was to stun heals and he had been doing it. ) I continue to beat on the bear who jumps back up to 33% and Tazzy is beating on the bear with me now and I am steadily going down in health. You see... I had that Druid... he was dead. They ended up winning as he steadily drained my health and Tazzy was out of mana.

Now look... Tazzy used his mana to fight not to heal. You hear this Noobed? I never got back up over into green on my health bar and I'm sorry. A F($cking Bear druid is NOT going eat away at my health with his crap DPS and kill me if I am getting heals. Tazzy was NOT healing me. There was no healing debuff on me. The next time you armchair quarterback cuz you are in the spirit realm please pay more attention before telling me Tazzy was healing me. He was not.

Round 4

Unbound Loss Warr/Rog/Druid



Rogue and Warrior at Unbound figured they liked steak and went through me.

Round 5

Unbound Loss Priest/Rogue/Druid



Again, Rogue ate Unbound. I was on priest entire time and the Druid ran free cuz Tazzy was on my priest.

Round 6

Unbound Loss Warr/Rogue/Pally



Guess what happened here!

ROund 7

Unbound Loss Rogue/Mage/Shammy



And again!!!

Round 8

No deaths Win Priest/Druid/Pally

We took this one apart. Probably built up angst from losing so much.

Round 9

Undound Loss Lock/Rogue/Druid



Dear god that lock new hot to fear Tazzy. Tazzy was blinded, stunlocked, rooted and Feared the entire match. The rogue had more Unbound pie.

Round 10

Unbound Loss Druid/Rogue/Warr



Rogue and Warrior kill Unbound then Tazzy then me.
Round 11

Win Priest/Mage/Rogue

Just a little more cloth armor please!!

The bitch! Or (Why doesn’t Horde have as many choke points as the Alliance and they still push our cave back?!)

Not sure how much terrain you guys pay attention to in AV but I have noticed since doing AV regular for the last year or so that there too damn many ally chokepoints for them to be bitching about our cave placement.

“Wait, Alliance can’t rush so they need the choke points!”

As Ratshag would say, Barbelfungger that! Allys first job is to run past every single fortification Horde has and try and take the Frostwolf Relief Hut. Now, when I get out of the cave I head immediately to the RH and stand guard because someone has to throw fits that it is getting zerged! So standard Ally attack pattern for AV is run to Snowfall take graveyard and run to Galv or Iceblood while leaving a small crew to take the two towers there. Also, if they are any good at all, they send at least 5 to RH to try and cap that early and the completely pass up Frostwolf graveyard.

“Can’t Horde do the same thing?”

No, we can’t.

“Why not? Horde used to steamroll alliance on zerg when starting Cave was closer.”

Sometime we did if you silly allys left no Def and I mean none.

One thing you have to realize is that Horde in my battlegroup ALWAYS start the match short. I am sure you have heard me throw fits before and AV is no exception. In AV our normal starting looks like 38 Ally to 26 Horde. No, I am not kidding, exaggerating or making shit up. That’s how it starts and within 5 minutes or so of the match starting it will level out.

“What’s 5 min?”

It’s flippin more than the 30 second head start Horde got with our original starting cave that you dandelion eaters threw greenpeace fits about! OOO move the cave…close it in… we need a Mount Cenariusmore! Flippin Elves!

The Chokepoints!

Horde has a chokepoint in exactly 1 spot! The little path between the through tower and up to the gates of Frostwolf is a death zone if we decide to turtle. However, this path is very much true neutral in that if we get zerged and the RH is taken it becomes a deathtrap for Horde.

“What about the other choke points!?”

There aren’t any! Period. Horde can be ran past instead of through anywhere else on the map. The same can not be said for the alliance side of AV. Hell, going up the path to Stormpike they give you elevated position for hunters and mages!!!! They funnel the poor horde through 2 mountains!!

“But what about going under the bridge?”

FLIPPIN DWARVES!! Do you realize you have FLIPPIN bridge chokepoint too!!! I want a bridge!!! A bridge from Frostwolf Graveyard into our camp instead of Alliance being able to run up a hill and jump the fence!!!

“What about going up and around and dropping behind our graveyard?”

Ya!!! What the hell about it!!! The drop that takes about half life or the one you have to go past the hunters to get to? That one?! You go to hell Alliance!

Whew… had to get that all out.

Now, all that being said, I am still winning about 75% of my AVs.

“That’s the Horde racials!”

Hey Alliance!


Do you know Phillip?


Feel up on these nuts ya dandelion eaters!

Sorry I haven’t written in a while. Work was kicking my butt and there was tons of overtime. It still is kicking my butt! I decided to take some time out and write though. Season 4 is live and I have decided to work on Herk for the remainder of Burning Crusade. I very much like my mage and shammy alts since I had never played the classes but I don’t think I have enough time to play them and get Herk’s PvP gear, his netherdrake and Aerthson’s S2 staff and S3 gear.

I probably should have paid better attention to my honor points during Season 3 but meh. I tried going tank and got quit a good tanking set. Then my guild didn’t want to talk to me because I couldn’t tank nightly. Ah well. 1 good weekend of AV will catch Herk up with his rings and neck. Next Tuesday I will pickup his S3 gloves and he will be 3-5 S3 with S2 mace and have all the accessory trimmings. It is time to go for the Battlemaster trinket as well.

Renoobed and I will be rolling 2s with Herk and his Resto Shaman Unbound. We are thinking (Read: Renoobed told me) about getting a Ret Pally. Now, I am really interested to see how well we compliment each other for this. When we are doing Melvin’s 5v5, we have great teamwork and don’t talk at all. This brings me to another point.

I step in for 5v5 when they need me if’n I can. Depending on the team makeup at the time, we don’t lose all that much. Melvin is pretty decent on his Elemental Shaman, his bro is good on his priest and I do very well on Herk. Now, Noobed has 3 toons and he loves his hunter but it is not his best toon. He really F’ing shines on Majeure, his mage. Now, you add Sugars as an SL/SL or get an Enhance shaman or Resto Druid or Boomkin and we have the makings of a team with an actual rating. It will never happen, I’m just saying.

Now, they had an A team at one time. This A team included Pogar the well gear but moronic, world’s worst warrior. He is/was (he is playing a rogue now) s2 full with all the accessory trimmings and Lionheart Executioner wielding warrior that constantly got out DPS’d and out performed by the S1 having 2H epic Axe wielding with no accessories Herk. Pogar was also the last in to the fight instead of being the vanguard. He routinely said he would target whatever the hunter was targeting and then go in. This drove Noobed nuts.

My other addition to Arena this time will be to go slower and pay more attention. I’ve been working on the bloodlust you see. I used to get really really upset and angry about losing in Arena. This time around I will be taking screenshots of all the fights and watching, learning and doing the math as it were when it comes to the end of our arena for the week. I think it will be important to see what kind of damage we do/take given which team make up we face and then I can start planning accordingly. Don’t tell Noobed though!

Next up: My post on Alterac Vallley entitled No Defense = No Win you Morons! <- I have that on Macro so I don’t have to type it anymore!

Worlds Nasiest Sun Burn

Yup, I am stuck at home and in this chair. I have had 4 hours of sleep over a 48 hour period. WoW is no officially old and Youtube is saving me. Some really funny stuff on there. Check it out below.
