RIP Ranissa


Another one bites the dust.

I’m 100% to blame for this one. I’d been leveling as a Prot Warrior since Level 10. I thought to myself, “I’m carrying around a decent two-hander, and I haven’t tried Arms since I switched to Prot. I wonder how it would do?”

Four mobs at almost an equal level as my Ironman, as a DPS build. That’s a recipe for RIP DERP status.  Dammit.

You live, and you learn. The lesson from this death was – If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it. Especially if you have a lapse of patience while you’re drinking your coffee.

This death didn’t bother me as much as I thought it would. What hurt the most was that she had made 2700g from selling drops and the small eggs for the WoW Christmas event.

Time to get back to it.

RIP Zavage


Son of a bitch. Really? REALLY?

I don’t know what it is, but it seems like within a day of me mentioning a character that I’m using for the Ironman Challenge, that character ends up dead.

In this case, though, I was completing a quest while partnered with three NPC’s. We had to kill elites. Now that seems stupid right from the get-go, but hear me out. It was a calculated risk. The mobs were all three levels lower than mine, and I had three NPC’s with me. I pulled the first one and we burned it down quite handily. Maybe this wouldn’t be so bad, I thought to myself.


My next pull was a named Boss. Again, elite. Again, three levels lower than my character. Again, outnumbered four to one. So I pulled, and we attacked. His health bar barely moved.

Oh shit.

Suddenly, I was at half health. What the fu-

Then I noticed that he had a casting bar. What the fu-

Then I was dead.


And so, another lesson learned. If the info bar shows an elite mob, bounce. Doesn’t matter who gives you the quest. You can be loyal, or you can be an Ironman. Rarely can you pull off both.

RIP Zavage: Born, Lv 1 – Died, Lv 23


I have started another character. I don’t plan on talking about this one until it has exceeded Level 23, because I am now superstitious as well as paranoid.

The WoW Challenge continues. Or rather, starts again.

Damn it.
