This is Os, a true vanilla berserk rogue. He’s not too well known, but he deserves it, so… enjoy!
Besides progressing, I mean… Yeah, we are still struggling with Rag25HC, but that is the case if you change half of the guild roster every week… I must mention about hunter applicants by now. I got used to being the only hunter in a guild for around 3 years now, but some months ago, hunters started to apply to my guild like hell. Around 20% of them were worthwhile and that made me thinking. It is a common stereotype that the hunter class has the most people who are mentally defocused (Oh boy, how nicely I said “retard”). And sadly, this stereotype seems to be based on reality. This may even enforce me to write a longer post about how they should apply to a guild or hell, even about what to do in a bossfight.
Jumping back to the original topic. What to do before the patch? Well, as I promised, I started leveling my alts now, I have 6 85s at the moment, I’m leveling my priest what’s currently 78. My warrior and mage is at 61/65. I just finished gearing up my rogue, and ganking is so much fun with it, just like old times at good old Freelancer in 2005 ^^.
Besides leveling (which I hate so much), I do oldschool instances for helping friends, and to get those missing items for my oldschool gear. As I wrote here already, I am a hardcore packrat. Still I miss a very few items, since I was unlucky back then, so I could not get the T2 shoulders, the T6 boots or the T4 shoulders.
Besides those, I am proud to say that I have the following sets on my hunter:
Full T1, 7/8 T2, some T3, 4/5 T4, Full T5, 7/8 T6, Full T7-T12, 7/8 D1, Full ZG set, Full Priest D1, Full S2
Also my rogue has 8/8 Bloodfang and 6/8 D2 and T1. Damn, they removed the D1 upgrade chain 1 day before I could complete the quest…
So this is what I’m doing at the moment… leveling and getting the gearz. I must get bigger backpacks though, my bank is already full of that stuff :).
Recently I started playing with Diablo II and it is just as awesome as it was back then. Just finished Nightmare with my lvl 60 barbarian. Also fetched my druid and necro from an old floppy disk so I could see my bad talent trees again. I highly recommend this game for everyone :)
WoW wise there was not much going on, I plan on leveling my rogue to 85 since that was the first class I started playing with. Gankage ftw I guess. I also miss my enha shaman since I loved playing with that character but I should gear it up again and that’s something I don’t have the patience for.
Anyways, I’ll try to make some PvP footage with my hunter since I got full pvp set finally (Only a year late, lol), so I can gank stuff once again.
Let me take you back to Vanilla again. Pet stats are different, every hunter is seeking unique pets with high DPS… You need to tame a pet and wait until you learn how to teach a specific spell to your next pet. Feed pet costed mana for a while. Pet talents are nowhere. Pets can attack you or leave you if you do not feed them at all. There were a few pets out there what ruled in PvE and/or PvP…
Yup, I changed the blog theme to something more readable, and more simple. I hope you can browse it better, and read it more easily.
I will post about Hunter interfaces, addons, and I will start (continue?) the Lookback series, which will contain stories from the early days of WoW.
Also, I’ll add some more pet guides and stuff :)
Here’s some 90’s thrash metal for you ^^ (Annihilator – The Rush)
The Hunter Class is now available to test! Hunters track, tame, and slay all manner of animals and beasts found in the wild. Whether they rely on bows or firearms, Hunters consider their weapons and pets to be their only true friends. Races allowed to become Hunters are the Night Elf, Dwarf, Orc, Tauren, and Troll.
