Worlds Dumbest Shaman

Ok, so I am in a Nordenwatch scenario last night, and well were doing the normal fight for the fort when I glance over at the bridge where all our RDPS stand and like right in front of them is this naked Shaman.  Now after Gasping and rubbing my eyes, I realized, not only had this lil git wandered to the wrong side of the battle field, but he has BW envy, I swear I was so flabbergasted that I watched him for a few seconds, and not one heal.  Well I (along with everyone else) got tired of laughing, so he was splattered with a quickness, and we did win the scenario, because our healers were pretty damn good.  So great fun last night.

Sorry about the short post, but my ole lady made me (thats the story I am sticking with) watch American idol.  Ok, yeah I know, but there was a serious hottie that showed up in a bikini, and I was like OMFG she’s hot but she’s gonna have no talent, but Alas, her voice was pretty damn good and she made it through, so Looks and a voice, hmmm Anyway lol I seriously Digress. more  tomorrow.

Do Not Enter (under any circumstance)

Ok, I almost forgot about this, true story I swear.  So before I was making this new engineer, I decided I wanted to try out Dark Crag, so I make my happy go lucky dwarf, and I shoot out a simple question in regional chat.  The question was “so whats it like here, is it s gank fest, or what”? I got 2 answers.  1. was “yes it’s a gank fest,  go play on another server.”and the other was “it’s really not worth starting a toon here man seriously.”  So I shrugged off the first guy and went to tells with the second. 

I would not be exaggerating if I said this guy eventually had me convinced not to make a toon on this server, he basically said T4 is horrible, and that Destro is always making Fortress attacks and order never does, and that T4 is simply Destro rolling over Order all the time.

So I chuckled and moved on, I can’t for the life of me remember the guys name, but just know that well you guys coulda had another crappy order player, but luckily he talked me out of it 😉

Got my Gat

Lol I love that word, Gat, WTF does it mean anyway?  Ok, so Engineer is going well, Scenarios however it was not a good night, seemed  that we lost most of them, there were no tanks on some scenarios, and when there was, there was no healers, so it was just bad news there.  I do however like the fact that if I am left alone, I do some serious damage. 

I guess this explains why all of a sudden Engineers have become the target priority, I swear this one marauder must have gone out of his way to come after me every time he saw me, now silly rabbit got detaunted and finally got bored chasing me around while the other RDPS whittled him down, but I swear he would come right for me every time, he he good fun.

So I have a problem, see I am one of those Assholes in scenarios who pisses and moans in SC chat about how people need to do their damn jobs.  I know it’s annoying and IRL I don’t really have anger issues like this, but as an example we lost a scenario yesterday by 3 points, it was 479 them 485 us, the gate switch was neutral, and there was 3 of us there, 1 of them decided to go after a RDPS, and before we could cap (and win) Destro came running in and blocked us from capping it, and eventually won 497/500.  Now if that 1 person had stayed we would have capped the flag in time and won.  Not looking ahead to what your individual action does is whats frustrating I think, like when a tank sees that there is Enemy toons at the fort so he stops and allows the other people to pass him, HELLO YOUR THE TANK!!.\

Ok, /Rant off.  Finally I have a question maybe someone can answer.  I noticed one of the special attacks armor piercing round is it? Falls under the Path of the rifleman, however I also notice that the specials for the other 2 turrets say core ability.  Is this simply a typo? or does the armor debuff and damage of the Armor piercing scale with path of the rifleman, and the others don’t? OR do none of them scale or all of them.

Thanks guys,

Commitment Issues

Ok, I know I said this was going to be a Magus Blog, but in keeping with the fact that I am a serious Alt-o-Holic, I deleted the Magus and started My Engineer.  Now before I am flogged let me explain. 

 When WAR was coming out I had decided on the engineer, and at release I got my engineer to 21 on Magnus, but It was and is such a dead server during my play times I decided to leave the server.  I honestly believe that the Engineer is my calling (until my next alt).

Now I made 7/7 in about 3 hours last night and finished every PQ up to CH3.  Man I had a blast last night, it was me 2 RP, and 1 IB, rolling through all the PQ’s.  I won a gold bag on the hard one.

Scenarios were a different story, we were thoroughly smitten every scenario I was in, where the hell are all those KotBS when I was on Destro, we were seriously lacking in tanks and there were a half a dozen WH.  I had some decent numbers, and did some serious harassing of Destro, but it was all in vain as the Destro Zerg eventually pushed us back to our spawn point where we stayed the rest of the scenarios.

Ok, so I am loving the Engineer again and well, it’s my blog and I will write about whatever I am playing.  Sorry for all you Magus guys and gals, but My ENG is back.

Empire in Chaos

I almost forgot, I finished this book, (in a day) So ok, the book was good, yup, just good.  I enjoyed the writing and the descriptions of the battles etc…  What I did not like was that it was very order biased.  My magus was…. Well I don’t want to ruin it for you in case you are going to read it, but if I had to give it a rating between 1 and 10 I would give it a 7.  Go ahead and pick it up anyway, I enjoyed it.

WTF!! X2

Morning all,

Ok, I am digging the Magus, I am 13/13 right now, doing ok keeping renown up with Realm.  So what did I do this weekend, lets see.  I participated in some scenarios, they were OK, won some lost some, did some Tier 2 Orvr.  Now on the topic of Orvr, I seriously think that this game is Hugely Player skill dependent.  I am no expert by any means, hell I still click the hot keys instead of using keyboard strokes, but I met a 13 SW in Orvr he was alone and I was alone, and even though I had no pet up, I spanked him BAD!  He was trying to melee me, and I know it’s probably not a ton but I have 2400 HP at 13.

On another note, I was talking to a guy in a scenario who was 2 levels lower than me, and got almost 2X the DPS I did, this is a bit frustrating, he says something about use your AOE’s more, well I thought I was. Apparently he says at 16 we get a class defining AOE.  I really wish I had some direction with this guy. He’s fun, but I have been putting all (see both) my Realm points into Demonology, and I have no idea if this is a good idea.

Off Topic, SON OF A BITCH!!!    I can not believe my NY FOOTBALL GIANTS lost to Philly.  How embarrassing, I am reaaaly starting to hate Eli more and more.  When Plaxico went on IR list due to shooting himself (IDIOT) i said well he’s only one guy, I wasn’t thinking about how he affects other teams defenses.  Philly was simply able to man to man the receivers and concentrate on the run, oh well next year. 

So I will post tomorrow, I am going to do some serious research tonight on what I should be doing with this guy.

I am the Bullgod

Well fun fun fun, Ok, so I am 10/10 now, and I wanna tell you a lil story.  I was in a scenario today and there was a bit of a stalemate going on at the fort in Nordenwatch.  I decided that a single person can make a difference so I decided the hell with it and charges, AOE’s ablaze.  What a site, The order line broke and my team followed it was glorious, and we eventually won.

I am really digging the Magus so far, I am still researching what the best spec will be for AOEing, I thought it was Demonology, but I have been hearing other things.  Well I like that I get alot of insta cast damage spells, it seems to catch the enemy off guard, I cast a long casting damage spell and follow it up with a few Instas and they are running for their lives.

Great fun!

9 and a nap

Hi all,  Made 9 last night, yeah  I know, I am going slow, but I want to make sure I keep my renown fairly close to my realm rank.  Anywho, I understand in last big <balance> patch BW were nerfed.  I gotta say I just don’t se it lol, yeah this is a rant, hello, look at the name of the site.  Just curious though, they have this instant AOE spell, and I swear it seems like they heal themselves while they do it, is this really the case?

Finally, I have a question that maybe one of you master Magi can answer.  Is it possible to de-taunt a white lion’s pet? and if I do, does the de-taunt go away if I hit the actual White Lion?

Well in ORVR, last night while I was still level 8, I happened across a 10 Engineer.  Now he had a turret down, and I had no Demon out, but he kicked my ass, seriously, and he was meleeing.  I used every DOT, and PBAOE i had, and I did get him to 1/4 life, but he beat me, so sad.  Also, WTF am I doing wrong?  In scenarios, I feel like I aid in turning the tides of battle sometimes, I FEEL like I am doing well, but I regularly get out DPSed by lower Magus.  Is there a DOT I should be just tagging everyone with or what?  I am enjoying playing him, and half way through a scenario, order made damn sure I was high on the “kill now” list, but my numbers aint great. Oh well I will see what happens.

Finally, I neglected to thank Syp for putting me on his blog, my one and only response came from a reference from his blog thanks again man.

Will write again tomorrow guys.

Peace  War out!

Permanent ass print on my Disk

Ok, so the titel, yeah ok, I am enjoying the Magus, Only got to 8 last night because well I had some honeydoos to do, so I didn’t get in much play time.  I did do a few scenarios, and I have come to honestly believe that one of 2 things is happening.  1) I am getting to close to the front lines or 2) People really hate the name Tzeether.  I spent more time lying dead on my disk than I did killing. 

So after contemplating smashing my keyboard, I decided I would pick up some renown gear at the WC, and join the T1 WB, you know strength in numbers and all.   Well I gotta say ORVR is a blast, and it’s much easier to blend in. So after capping the 3 BO’s near the WC, we headed to the Oasis, and a nice lvl 9 Helm dropped and needless to say everyone wanted it of course.  Well I won, yay, how awesome it will be to have a helm at 9.  So by the time I had logged off I was 8+ a full bar of renown, ready to get RR 9 tonight. Well I want to thank  Ysharros for being the first to post a reply, I will try to update as much as possible.

More tomorrow,

Staple my foot to the ground please

Ok, so still playing my Magus.  Tzeether (Zee-ther) as I affectionately call him.  So the title, although a bit bizzare has a meaning.  I got Tzeether to lvl 7 last night, just questing and Scenarios.  Questing is obviously EZ mode, but the title of this post refers to Scenarios.  For the life of me I can not stay at range.  I know I don’t have the life required to get in close and melee, but I just cant help whipping the shit outa people with my Daeomn Lash.  See, Nuking at range is all good and well, but theres just something so satisfying about tentacle whipping a bunch of order, all the while standing behind a wall of BO’s. So I am diggin the Magus so far, can’t wait to see how he does as I raise in levels. More to come.

Tzeether
