Method’s Heroic Highmaul Raid

Well that could have gone better.

Just as several million people tried to log into World of Warcraft servers, a very serious, very coordinated DDoS attack hammered Blizzard. Plus, wait queues of hours, thousands of people still trying to log in. There’s anger, and understanding. Some people are already Level 100, and some have set to set foot into the Warlords of Draenor content.

Screw it. I can’t even get to my computer for another week. You hear that Blizz? You’ve got about six more days. Work that shit out.

Let’s think about better times. Hey, remember Blizzcon 2014? That was fun. I followed it on Twitter and even that got me stoked. I watched some of it live on my phone, when I could. I missed Method taking on Midwinter in the Live Raid. In a recently posted video, Method’s guild leader Rogerbrown explains how they tore up the speed run on Heroic Highmaul and did Midwinter dirty.

You might as well watch it. It’s not like you’re going to be playing WoW anytime soon.

Final Boss Podcast – Blizzcon 2013 Live Raid

I remember my last Blizzcon (2011? 2012? Guess I don’t remember it that well!) Panels, events, meetups, it was a great time and great experience to have. But the thing that had the biggest impact on me was the Live Raid. I watched Blood Legion take on Vodka as they sped through the Cataclysm bosses. I don’t raid, but I could appreciate watching two teams of top-shelf talent go head to head against each other.

So while I continue my medically-issued vegetative state, enjoy with me the latest Live Raid from Blizzcon 2013. Special thanks to the Final Boss Podcast for posting!

Final Boss Podcast – Death Knight DPS

Hercules-DPS

I have a thirst for knowledge. I also have a long daily commute. But since I can’t read while I’m driving, I tend to prefer to get my information via podcast. Getting back up to speed with Death Knights, I began searching for podcasts discussing DKs. I lucked out when I found the Final Boss podcast, because a) it was a podcast, and b) they discussed DPS Death Knights with two top-shelf DK’s – Arv, formerly of Blood Legion and now a member of Vodka, and Mendenbarr of the guild Midwinter.

They also have the podcast in video format!

There’s an Aftershow as well, and you don’t get that in any podcast form. They’re doing it live!
