But why is the Pie Gone?
The Pie is not gone. The Pie has been incognito for a while. I am going to break a few of the Nim’s rule’s of blogging in this post.
First, how is everyone? Good…Good. Second, I’ve been good. Working on a few projects, some of you may enjoy said projects. I am currently reading through the WoW lore books. I am, at the time of this post, just finished The Last Guardian. I have finished the War of the Ancients Trilogy and The Rise of the Horde. In fact, if you would like a copy of The Rise of the Horde, I have an extra I don’t want to ship back to Amazon. My mistake is your lore gain. Enter by the comments of this post. This contest, as it were, is open to all residents of the US and possibly Canada (sorry, it’s just not worth 20 dollars shipping to ship a 8 dollar book) that can receive a book…oh and it’s written in English, so if you would rather read it in French…you are not able to enter this contest. /glances at Fikkle.
With my recent delve into the books, which, by the way, I am thoroughly enjoying, I have another RP centric post going up on For the Pie, since for the most part we keep our RP stuff on our own blogs, unless perhaps it includes all of us. My other post in the works is a list of the X number of things I would change if I were in charge of the World….of Warcraft. A sneak peek: Fixing AV so it isn’t a race to see who can get to the other keep as quick as possible and Dragon mounts.
Oh quick note here, Pie is actually no longer. Horde, girl, Belf. Still pally though. Piepal has become Makari, a Draenei male pally on Winterhoof.
Some of you may know that I’ve been leveling in the BG’s with Fik’s warrior Kor. I started with my rogue Tombreaver, and then decided while we were eating lots of alliance babies together, we might be stronger with a healer type. So, I switched to my druid. I could never find a comfort zone with the bear/owl/tree type, so I went to my priest. In the upper levels of a bracket, we were unstoppable. In fact, I helped Kor get his Ironman achievement by being awesome. Okay, so I left him to go kill a nelf hunter, but he was fine. After a while, I decided that I wanted to try Shadow. OMG! At the upper ends again, shadow is unbelievable. Heck at 65-66 against even 68’s I am a terror to deal with. One on one, I usually win. Against a mob of dirty Alliance scum…not so much. The problem with Shadow is, Hit. I have quite a bit, due to talents and the WG heirloom staff, but against the level 68-70 mobs in AV, I miss a lot. A. Lot. Bosses are even worse. Don’t tell Fik this, but after he logged for the night, I made 66 and then switched back to Disc. If he stays with his pocket healer, or actually drags me with him, he will again become unstoppable. Last night Grubs had her 60 holy pally on there doing some amazing healing. The three of us just roflstomped several attempts to take the mine from us. Protip to the alliance nubs: Kill the healers. That shadow priest you charged, then got charged by the nasty Arms warrior, will kill you if you don’t kill or interrupt their healer.
Halkale continues to do his job as Champion seal gatherer. Soon, I’ll have enough to get 2 of the melee DPS maces for my shaman. Dual wielding those will make my shaman quite nasty I think.
The only issue in my mind with leveling through the BGs is it’s a money sink. You don’t get a lot of gold coming in from quest rewards, so as you level you send your toon gold to buy spells and upgrades etc.
Don’t forget to put your name in the hat for the book in the comments, if interested.
