Shared Topic: To Armory or Not to Armory

I know, it's been a while, but it's me. I actually found a job for... all of two weeks [and it was terrible -- commission, worked from 10AM to 1AM... basically, no pay. I think it's the first and probably last time I'll actually be glad I got let go...].

Anyway though. Out of lack of too much too post, I'll go with a shared topic again.

If you were given the option, would you post a link to your blog on your main's armory profile?

Why/why not?

Presented by Anea as a part of Blog Azeroth's Shared Topic for the fifteenth of March.

Would I post my blog on WoW Armory? I don't think so. Why? Well, quite honestly it's because I sort of post about people I play with. Not a whole lot, but it's still there. While I try not to openly say 'this person sucks' or 'I'll never group with this person again', it's still a better idea to not have half the world knowing that I have a blog. People who stumble upon my blog, great! I welcome them.

People from Feathermoon who I don't know but are about to group with? Not as awesome. I know that as a part time blogger, I like finding other bloggers. I also know other people who feel differently. They'd rather not become a story on a blog, or even a casual reference. I don't blame them, really, I can see how that might be a bit intimidating, or lead to bad feelings, even if names were not mentioned.

That, and we're Feathermoon. We don't roleplay. (So everyone says, anyway.) So to find a writer / roleplayer? I'd probably be mocked by half of the server.

I'll pass on that.

So, I guess, all together the answer is no.

Nothing bad has happened from people not getting a direct link to my blog (nor has anything good), and I'm okay with that. Me and my tiny reader base will be fine staying just as we are.

That, and I feel a bit less pressure to find something interesting for EG every so often. Interesting being a shared topic, apparently, or a bit of roleplay story.

Shared Topic: First Sign of Madness

If you gave your character a voice, how would a conversation between you and them go?

Here's my whirl at the the Shared Topic for February 8th.

[ RPJournal: Airelin ] :: An Agglomeration of Thoughts

It was with a relieved sigh that Airelin fell onto her bed. She was oh so exhausted... glowing eyes stared at the canopy of the large bed, unfocused. She hadn't even bothered to take off half of her armor before she collapsed, she was just that out of it. Every limb felt like lead, and it had simply been too much work to remove the leggings that had become so familiar to her, as well as the boots. At the very least she managed to take off her chestpiece, helm, and shoulders, for those would have ruined the wonderful feeling she was basking in from doing absolutely nothing.

It had been one hell of a few months, she decided, looking back. She wasn't quite sure what hit her, but all of the sudden, she had the strangest urge to pack up her bags and start over. It wasn't as if she had much to leave behind; Arie had been living alone with a crappy, yet decent paying, job and no social life outside of her interest in studying undead. Yes, undead. For some reason, the undead fascinated her, the way they moved, how they were put together, what animated them. It was for that they called her strange: they, being the village-folk. Not that she had openly shouted her feelings about the undead to the world (who in their right minds would?), but they knew all right.

Quick Shammy Notes and To-Dos

Haste is superior to attack power for Enhancement shamans right now.

I hate hunters. They're the reason why I have to gem for expertise.

Windfury glyph still trumps the Flame Shock glyph.

Q: Is Black Magic better than Berserking?
A: No. Using the January 14th BIS list Black Magic sims 51.18 dps below Berserking.
-Elitist Jerks, where everything else is coming from too.

Icewalker over Tuskarr's? I know DPS wise, but in a movement unfriendly situation...

Oh. ICC thus far have very few movement unfriendly fights and a lot of don't have to move too far fights. I guess, in that case, the question holds true. Icewalker would be better.

Lava Lash less, Magma more.

1) Spirit Wolves
2) Shamanistic Rage
3) Stormstrike if no SS debuff present
4) Maelstrom Weapon x 5 stacks - Lightning Bolt
5) Flame Shock
6) Earthshock
7) Stormstrike
8) Fire Elemental
9) Magma Totem
10) Lightning Shield
11) Lava Lash
12) Fire Nova

Is ideal once I get to T10 gear. Otherwise, something closer to this:

1) Spirit Wolves
2) Maelstrom Weapon x 5 stacks- Lighting Bolt
3) Earthshock if Storm Strike debuff is on target
4) Storm Strike
------->Flame Shock
5) Earthshock
6) Magma Totem
7) Lightning Shield
8) Lava Lash
-More Elitist Jerks, slightly modified.

Still Lava Lash less.

Pick up and try out EnhSim.

That's all for now.

More LFG Ramblings

There's something I forgot to mention in my ramblings last time about LFG. Some things that have really hit me in the face [or bite me from behind, depending on how you look at it] recently. Recently, meaning yesterday.

Random group on Dae, my tank/dps DK. I almost always sign up for tank, but yesterday, I figured, "oh, hey, why not sign up for both?" Apparently, the idea wasn't so hot with Blizzard. A queue pops up, and Bali, my warrior friend, and I accept...
