Pike recently tried to convince us that she has no class, which is a patently false idea.
I, however, can proudly assert that I have lots and lots of class. Observe:
Siha bought WoW, installed it, and rolled a paladin. To this day she can’t remember why, except that she’s always loved playing healers, and a [...]

I recently posted about my difficulty in finding things to amuse me in the pre-Wrath period: everything I could think of to do was either boring, or irrelevant in the face of the upcoming expack.
Well, here’s something that’s been occupying me for the last few days: catching up on Achievements, in advance!
I’m a completionist and [...]

I hate this time in the game’s lifecycle: that last couple of months before an expansion, where everything you could do is viewed in light of “well, is it worth it?”
It’s not that I’m not playing, or that I don’t want to play. I’m doing weekly Karazhans and 3-5 heroics a week on my priest, [...]

Recently I talked about my indecision over how to have my cake and eat it too. I have since achieved enlightenment!
This was also a Blog Azeroth shared topic from two months ago! With all my indecision, though, I had no answers for it – until now.

What I’ve Decided

My main will drop Alchemy just before [...]

Because I’m kind of twitchy about planning for things in advance, I’ve been thinking a lot about how I’m going to tackle the early days of Wrath of the Lich King. I didn’t do too well when TBC was released; I was burnt out on levelling from a last-minute push to get an alt to [...]

I’ve just hit 70 with another alt, my night elf priest Siha. She’s currently a Holy DPS spec, running a Surge of Light/Imp Divine Spirit build (32/29/0) which allows her to do reasonable DPS and still contribute good healing if we’re short on healers.
Of course, gearing up an alt at maximum speed is always [...]

I’ve been levelling an alt lately, mostly keeping a friend company while he tries out a new class. We haven’t been following any levelling guides, but we’ve still managed to belt through the levels very fast – I did nearly sixty levels in less than three weeks of real time, which is pretty good for [...]

I’m sure everyone knows people who only play characters of one type, whether it’s the healer who comes equipped with a pally main and shammy and druid alts, or the tank with one of each type, or the pet-lovers who play hunters and warlocks.
The trouble is, once you’ve played a character to the level cap, [...]

I’m an altaholic, I admit it. On my main server, Proudmoore, my character list looks something like this:

Level 70 Paladin
Level 70 Mage
Level 63 Priest
Level 37 Druid
Level 24 Shaman
Level 19 Hunter

plus two other attempts at hunters, another shaman, another priest and another paladin, all under twenty, and about seventy gazillion [...]
