Double Solace

‘Tis a state I never thought I’d reach.  Heroic Jaraxxus proved to be a nightmare for my guild on Antonidas, and once ICC came out, no one ventured back to the Tournament Grounds to keep trying.  So I figured I would never see Double Solace, but I am now the proud owner of Solace of the Defeated and Solace of the Defeated-Heroic.  I spent almost all of my DKP to get the heroic version!

It may sound crazy to spend it all, but the two trinks together are still considered by many to be the BiS combination for Priest trinkets.  Together they offer not only a spellpower boost but amazing mana regen.  I have found myself going /oom in the LK fight, and this may help.

I look forward to using these trinkets as a new raid week begins.  I also look forward to analyzing the double stacks of mana regen.  OMG… Procs!  So stay tuned for that!

Happy Raiding!



We went in to see the Lich King for the second time last night, and this fight is a learning process and a work in progress.  That’s the simplest way to put it.  One spell- and one spell alone- can jack it all up.


It looks like this if you fail. Continue reading

Cataclysm Priest Preview

The Discipline Priest continues to have all the fun…  Gosh.  I am going to have to master it, huh?  I mean- I wanted a mass bubble!!!!However, I wonder if the Power Word: Barrier will be high up in the Discipline tree so Holy can pick it up, too?  Blizz hates us?  Of, course, the “improved healing state” for holy sounds nice- and Life Grip?  Wow, so then I would have something in common with my DK… sort of.  Read and let me know what you think!

Happy Raiding!


From Blizz by way of MMO-Champion:

In World of Warcraft: Cataclysm, we’ll be making lots of changes and additions to class talents and abilities across the board. In this preview, you’ll get an early look at some of the changes in store for the priest class, including a rundown of some of the new spells, abilities, and talents, as well as an overview of how the new Mastery system will work with the different talent specs.

LK to 61%

Not too bad for our first night of wipes, right?  Some say it will take us four weeks.  I am hoping for three at this point.  Dealing with LK’s defile is proving to be a stumbling block; however, I think we have phase 1 down.  The defile phase is all about pre-moving.  Body and Soul, GO!  Continue reading

Noble is the new Sexxy

Gotcha "sprung" off my Spring Robes.

Yeah, it’s bangin’.  I know.  LOL.  Only two more titles to go before I get my, “What A Long, Strange Trip It’s Been” achievement.  I still need For The Children and The Flame Keeper.  It looks like it may be June before I finish.  That’s just around the corner.. sort of.  I hope I have the patience for it.  LOL Continue reading

Ghost Posts… pure cowardice.

Have you seen this man?

It is weird how trolls stop by and leave rude comments.

I discovered one today (my first!), and I believe it’s from a former guildie on my old server or maybe his ex-lover.  I’m not sure.   However, when I went to respond to the e-mail address, I got the following failure notice.

Technical details of permanent failure:

LOL.  So am I to believe the e-mail was created just for me- and then deleted?  I am flattered. 

Thanks for stopping by, jjroa69.  I wish you the best in all your WoW endeavors.  If you’d like to read my reply person-to-person, please feel free to contact me in-game.  I don’t mind.  Really.  That’s why when I want to get a message to someone, I will talk in-game or if that person is never really on, I contact them by game-mail, e-mail, or PM. 

So, please, whoever you may be, please, let’s have this convo if that’s really what you want.   My e-mail address- is  If you choose not to, I get it.

Happy Raiding anyway!

So… I been out of pocket… absent.. hiding… working.. chilling.. relaxing… whatever you want to call it.. I have been “away.”  And I have enjoyed it.

Last time I wrote anything, I was the GM of my own guild <OMG Priest>, and I was running the pug-nastiest of pugs.  I had fun, but I got recruited.  Yeeeeesssss, I got recruited to join the guild some of my old guildies went to- almost to the point of it being peer pressure to join.  (I’m glad they like me enough to do that!).  So I joined, and this is my first week raiding with them- and all I can say is, “Wow.”

Blood Queen Lana'thel- DOWN!

Prof Put DOWN!

Sindragosa.. DOWN!

Three ‘chieves… one night.  And all on my bday!  It was a great night for me.  I am soooo close to seeing the Lich King.  I get excited just thinking about it.
BTW- The four-set change is fine with me.  I just haven’t had time to tell you that.  So far, so good.
Happy Raiding!
p.s. This ain’t no April Fool’s joke.  Armory me.  This guild sort of rocks.. ok they “rocks-a-lot!”
