My warrior makes the cut!

My baby warrior is finally 90!

I have very special feelings for both my mage and my Warrior as they are the same toons I have had since Vanilla, they have gone through moves, changes and factions with me and are the only two characters I have had since then.  My priest was created in BC, and she is the next oldest toon I have.

My warrior started out as a my wait toon, back in the day before btags, when you had to be on a toon that people could see you on to get credit for DKP.  I never really leveled her all that much, I more sat around in the main cities chatting to the guildies that were waiting with me, but I could never let her languish because of that connection I forged with her.

Warrior 90

So she makes the 4th toon to 90 that I have and is now mostly decked out in Timless isle gear already, I had three pieces which I took off my pally (shoulders, legs and boots) and whilst opening chests I found braces, gloves, chest, trinket, helm and ring…not too bad for a about 40 minutes of death…yes I was getting my butt handed to me by all the rares 🙂  I only mention the gear because I found this achievement quite funny when I got rid of one of my rings :

WoWScrnShot_010914_140248

That is for superior items with a minimum of 333 in all slots…That’s where I was at gear wise trying to kill mobs on the Timeless Isles…just think about that for a moment….333!!  Crazy…that is me 🙂

I also laughed when I got this achievement when I landed…Clearly I have no idea how I managed to actually get to 90 doing so few quests??  I must have done dungeons for one levelling period or something??  No idea…

WoWScrnShot_010914_132053

Comparatively my mage has done 7946 quests according to the statitics tab 🙂  I love it!

So deciding what toon to level next?  Shammy who is already 85 or hunter or priest…soo undecided….

BA Shared Topic – Oaths

Shared Topic this week from Matty:

What vows would your character say, intend, or break, and to what allegiance? Would it be to class/race/specialization, deity, or ruler? This is quite a challenging Blog Azeroth topic, however, I know you are all up to it because you are amazing writers.

I found this one a hard one…many of my readers would know, I am not a very good writer, in fact I would go so far as to say I suck!!  Thinking about oaths and actually coming up with how to formulate those ideas into words was a struggle, however I believe I have come up with something that is only mildly crap :p

The thing you have to understand with my mindset about my toons is I don’t really care about the faction that are in.  If they are alliance, they hate horde or whatever the larger evil is (death wing anyone), and same with my horde toons, they typically hate the alliance.  The issue I have found is that my toons have been back and forth so many times in their life, I tend to just see them as their class and leave it at that.  I wrote some oaths trying to express how my main characters see their life and any oaths they may have taken to continue on their chosen path (horde or alliance 🙂  – yes I know a whole bunch of friends just screamed that I have to choose a side!!!)

My warrior has taken the following oath:
I pledge my life for yours to protect you from all danger and spill the blood of our enemies, before a drop of yours is shed. I shall honour our earth, I shall cleanse in the water, I shall breath in the air, I shall feast with our clan by the fire.  Always must I believe my shield is as important as my heart, and should one break the other will follow.  I am more than my weapon, and my scars will ever be a reminder of the trials we have suffered and the battles we have won.

My Paladin took:
The light shall absolve me; in the light, I shall triumph. Any pain shall be healed, any fear will be quelled. Within the light we will become one, our triple aspect becoming greater than any evil our world can attempt to destroy me with. Protection, healing and killing shall be my future with the understanding I must remember to always protect those who cannot protect themselves. This is my oath until the light leaves my body for the last time.

My Mage:
We bring the storms and we can bring the calm. We are the army that lights up the night sky.  Together we are stronger than man, demon or god.  The fire burns within us, seeking destruction; ice stills our mind, seeking the calm and the arcane flows through our veins; bursting with knowledge.  Seek the wisdom to defeat our enemies, create the balance in your mind and allow the fire in your soul to be shared with your allies.

and finally my Druid:
I am bound to the moon, as the earth is bound by the sun. I feel the turning of the seasons as one feels the rage in battle, all my forms are given to the service of the old gods. I shall nourish the earth as she nourishes me and I will fight our enemies without reservation if they cause damage to the land and the spirits which inhabit it. I fight for those who do not understand the ways of the spirit, so that one day the fight will no longer be needed.

I can’t wait to see more oaths!

My first ever Sunwell!

After me logging the other night because of the asshats in my alliance guild, I logged onto my warrior and one of our guildies was going to be heading into Sunwell.  So I got an invite to tag along.  Even my hubby decided to come with us.

We never did Sunwell when it was current, we did one or two nights farming the trash – but we found that too hard for us. We started raiding late, and had we stuck with it back then we could have probably gotten to Sunwell eventually.

Anyway since then, I have done a whole bunch of pugs which never get passed the first boss and if I have joined after that boss, we never get passed Frosty.

The first boss was hard even now as it required communication about % of health.  We wiped the first time 😦  But then got it on the second.

We then smacked Brute and had a few attempts on Frosty.  Can I just say – what a pain in the arse that fight is/was!?!?!?

Song was telling us to look for him when he was up to see where the breath was, and I must confess I couldn’t even see the tard because I was chasing mobs. It was horrific. Mind you given it was my second time seeing that actual fight, I am not surprised I was clueless.  In the end we just had to burn through before the air phase – which we did.  It would have been tough when it was current content.

Muru was fantastic!  He was like a dark purple nurple adal – i loved it 🙂  From what I could tell of the fight, it would have been an interesting one in its day.

 

Then he turned into a massive void shadow thing and I was just enjoying myself so much 🙂 I had no idea what the hell was going on!

After that we headed to the big man to cleanse his evil from the empire :p

I was pretty ecstatic to have done this – I never thought I would ever see Sunwell.  I need to do it on my mage for the BC achievement – it’s the only one I am missing I think. This would have been spectacular in its day, along with all the raids of the BC era which had style! I am jealous at all the people who did get to see this content when it was current.

I am sorry we sucked a little Song, but thank you so much for taking us along for the ride. It means a lot that we got to see it.  Hubby has never seen past the first archway of trash 😀

My only regret was not realising I could have been a dragon for the fight – or some of it anyway.  I could have just flown around being all dragonlike and awesome.  So here is me after the boss kill anyway 😀

It was a fantastic end to what a horrific start of my raid night.

PURPLE NURPLE!!

He is complete – for the moment!! 

I still need the helm and a better weapon, however the helm I generally have hidden anyway, so I am not worried about it and my weapon is kind of crud, so I want to get it upgraded before I worry about transmogging it.  However the longer I look at him without a matching weapon the more it is going to annoy the hell out of me, so it may end up done this week anyway 🙂

My shoulders dropped off Omor tonight and I was wrapped, so I am sorry for the posting in the last couple of days, I have been going overboard, but seriously it just rocks my socks and I am so excited I had to share immediately!!

Cross realm raid – BWL

My first proper cross realm raid 🙂  I logged in yesterday morning as I had the day off and got thrown an invite almost straight away 🙂

I hadn’t been to BWL on my warrior 🙂

Scored an achievement, clearly I need to fix my mod as the above is a terrible image…LOL How can I even say what achievement I got??

We took a photo at Nef before we killed him and I wanted to say the 15 minute run through BWL was heaps of fun 🙂  My first cross realm raid was a success!   I like them.

Thanks for the run guys, you all kept me laughing!

Then I listened to twisted nether blogcast with Navimie 🙂  I had to run just before it finished because hubby needed to make a work call and my headphones weren’t plugged in.  It was fun sitting in the chat room with Cymre (!!) and some other guildies just chatting away.  The noodles though.  THE NOODLES!!!!  I swear, most painful hour with those ads!!

Purple Nurples and other addictions :D

Sorry for all the transmog posts lately….I blame JD 🙂  Yes yes!!

Tonight, I transmogged another olympic outfit…the Javelin, but whilst trolling around transmog sites and gear, I found the set I wanted for my warrior….the Revenant set!  All purple and  I chased down some quests which rewarded the items and I have to farm two bosses for my shoulders (Omor in Hellfire ramparts – who didn’t give it up tonight) and Kael in MgT – who I have to kill but can’t be bothered doing right now!  Thanks to McT for all the help he gave me and fantastic mogging talk 🙂

Of course my only issue is a mace now..all the ones I like are from heroic ICC or FL…so I have to lower my preferences 🙂  heheh  But i am calling him the purple nurple!!!

Onto other things, I took my Druid into LFR to heal…and I sucked…I really just don’t get druid healing…although I have only done it a couple of times so perhaps I am being too harsh on myself.  I may just give up on the healing.

My rogue is now level 20 and has riding skills 🙂  This makes me happy as running around it just killing my will to live.  I am not sure how far she will go, but anything is possible.

Hubby got his druid to 84 this morning, and we are currently on our pally/shammy combo trying to get them to 85 as they are fully rested now.  Funny tangent, we had them in a guild which no one ever spoke in – over 400 members and I think I had seen people speak in guild chat once…when I joined about 6 months ago.  So we left that guild today because we just got sick of the silence even when trying to get a conversation started.  About 1.5 minutes after leaving the guild, we get a guild invite to the same guild!!! A generic whisper saying our guild is looking for members, join us type thing, so we both messaged back something much less polite than “we just left your crap guild”.  I did giggle.

We are considering moving the 2 of them over to Dath to be with the frosties…not that we have discussed raiding at all, however hubby did mention that 2 raiding resto druids may not work so he needs another toon option (resto druid because I waffle about Navimie too much I think)….I find this interesting for 2 reasons :

1 – I may be able to convince him to raid if the team is not as unco as he currently experiences.

2 – I have not mentioned raiding at all except that they progressed well and seem to be quite competant.

I felt a little twinge of excitement when he said that because it gave me some hope. I may be able to raid with him horde side again…somewhere!! I had a happy!

My mage is feeling very unloved at the moment, and I do feel bad for her. I might try and do an olympic transmog for her now and see if I can’t give her some loving.

Just chilling out

My rogue is level 17 🙂 Highest level rogue by miles now. Still not sure if i enjoy it, although it has grown on me since hitting 15 and being able to run dungeons. The fact that I am top on dps helps. I won’t discuss any further the horrific LFD runs at that low level – suffice it to say…I think I had the deserter buff more than I was in a run.

Not sure if I mentioned this, but hubby joined frosties on his druid and is now 83. We are still new and feeling a little like outsiders – but that happens with every guild, but so far I love the sense of humour in the guild. They have me giggling a fair bit when I am online. I actually find I am wanting to log onto my dath toons, wishing my AT toons were there…I really do enjoy the people…when they are chatting. I would say 60% of the time guild chat is pretty quiet.

It is fun running dungeons with hubby healing me as I tank. Two more levels and we can start doing heroics, after all, I am only getting 13g for every run, I don’t mind though as it is only costing me about 2g repairs since I am not even close to dying, but I would like to be getting some JP/VP and not just coin.

We may move our other horde toons over, but it really isn’t important at this stage – it would just be nice to have other toons with maxxed professions (or close to max) that can aid us. We have discovered that Dath has a crappy AH…there is not much on there and anything that is on there is so uber expensive compared to what we are used to on Aman’thul. That decision will likely be made on Friday – but I would want to bring both with me…hunter and shammy, he would bring pally and hunter. Decisions, Decisions.

Onto some other news, which I have yet to tell my GM about, I will be breaking the news to him tonight. It looks like in my bid to get healthier, I will be starting karate in a fortnight. Their 2 training days happen to be the same days we raid. I will now only be available to raid on Sundays with them and that means I am not likely going to be raid leading for them in MoP, of course, we don’t have a date for MoP, and i can’t tell the future…but it is not looking hopeful.

Warrior love

I had my day off on Wednesday and so I spent some time giving my warrior some love 🙂

Started off doing Ahune on all my toons – stupidly I was tanking on my pally when I signed up as healer and I didn’t even realise…DUH!

After those 4 were done, I decided to run some normals on my warrior, just to get rid of some gear – I am wearing tanking greens, but they are greens 🙂  I want to be able to at least be running twilight heroics…possibly LFR, but I am not overly stressed about that.  I am already running LFR on my druid and I have no idea how people do it multiple times on their various alts…I could probably handle it on one more toon…but that would be the limit.

Anyway, every run, I explained to the group that I was building my set so my threat generation was a little slow and to be please be aware.  I had absolutely no problems. I think my little warning let people know the situation and it made things so much easier.  If I lost mobs I got them back very quickly, overall no one died in the 6 or so runs I did and I was quite happy with it. No one yelled at me or gave me shit – that made me happy as well.

I am half blues now, 1 epic and the rest still greens, I am getting there.  I can run heroics now for cata if I want to, but I will hold off until I am happy with my gear – a little more change would be nice.  I don’t want to run into heroics and get squished with one hit.

I was quite happy with my effort and I have missed tanking on my warrior…I do enjoy my pally as well, but my warrior has been around as long as my mage has, and holds a very special place in my heart 🙂

He was quite happy to be getting back into the dungeons as well…kept jumping around like a crazy cow. I think he is just happy to be having company again.

Off topic – girly post! Nails, comics and superheros!

So this is very offtopic post for probably anyone that is of a male variety 🙂 Feel free to read and pass onto other people who may enjoy it!

After a pretty cool night last night chatting to Navimie about stuff, I remembered about these two very cool things,  that I had to link for her and Cymre to enjoy.

Let me set up some back story!

1.25 hours/4 bosses down and WoW @ work

Yup, I know some people can clear DS in that time, but we are a slower more relaxed guild ok :p (Well that’s my excuse and I am sticking to it).

We managed to recruit a couple of people this week, a healer and a dps, which is fantastic, so we have been able to field some full raid groups.  Last night was spectacular.

MIA and time to catch up!

Yeah I was missing in action 😀

Happy New years and all that jazz!!!  I hope everyone had a great night?  Tell me stories!!  heehh

Mine was a very quiet night, the weather was too hot to permit much drinking, so we just chilled out and leveled worgens 🙂  Yes our new years tradition is LANning at a friends place and playing WoW/Drinking/Chatting 😀  It has become a tradition of sorts and we always have fun 😀  We missed out on the fireworks in a major city though  😦

I have been popping into game every few days and doing bits and pieces, I am only 30% off hitting level 85, so I am slowly getting there.  I have had a recent spat of achievements though and that is pretty exciting 🙂

So for all the details 😀

Almost 83

Yeah I am a slow arse I know, but I am just kind of enjoying the ride to 85, last time; when levelling to 80, I rushed through and then was bored waiting for others to catch up.  So this time I am just getting there in my own time.

I haven’t really had much of a chance to play anyway, I have just been so busy, but this week I plan to get to 85 and then start on my warrior whilst levelling my professions on my mage.  A bit of down time never hurt anyone!

I like Hyjal, am glad it is over though, I was getting a little drained towards the end of it.  I am currently questing in Deepholm, which I love, it’s a lovely area.  I attempted to run an instance this morning, one of the ones in deepholm, and it was so fail I ended up leaving after the 4th wipe.  The tank would just run in and grab mobs, no CC, and no explanation, so I was trying to my best to keep mobs of the healers and then he would have a go about not targetting the right mobs etc.  Well I am sorry, I haven’t been here before and a little pre information would be more useful than post degradation.  So I left.  I decided I qould be better of questing trhen spending hours wiping because they want to be big shots.

Bah humbug is all I have to say!!  🙂

All good though, I will jump back in shortly and get to 83 tonight, if I can.  I am going to see MUSE tomorrow night so I doubt I will be playing much, so wanna get there before the end if the week!!!

Tanking on my pally :D

Went for my first heroic last night, actually 5 of them, was the first time since being back online.  We queued up the other night but I got HoR and I can’t do that just yet, I am not confident with my tanking so even contemplate that run.  Certainly not as my first heroic back after 4 months anyway 😀

So last night we got VH to start – mmm nice and easy, then UP, Gundrak, HoS  and then Nexus.  Did quite well for forgetting to put up righteous defence in VH until the last portal 😀  Had one group of mobs go everywhere, but the group we were running with was doing just under 1.5k dps, which meant it was tough to keep up with the portals, but hubby was there doing 4-5k dps and picking up the slack…..we got there in the end 😀

I messed up a little with mob management, I just don’t have enough mana – i think I am wearing too much warrior gear and not enough pally gear…will see if it is worth fixing 😀 and I am not able to get aggro on all the mobs in group pulls quickly enough and then when the DPS lay in at the same time I am losing a mob occassionally… but no one died to a loose mob, which is good, I stayed out of the fire and I was managing to get the loose ones back pretty quickly….

More practice is needed.  Hubby reckons I am a better tank than I was ever a mage, and he reckons I shoudl switch full time, but I am just not sure if I can let go of my mage – she is my collector toon and has all my achievements and I don’t want to lose that….but maybe for raiding I would be better as a tank?  I do enjoy it immensley – as much as playing my mage – hence why I am so torn I think 😀 

I also have my warrior as well which I could tank on, and given they are saying they are bringin back crowd control, perhaps my warrior would be better – no mana management to worry about and aweseom threat on single mobs…hrmmmm…..I do love my warrior as well….GAH!!!  I SUCK!!!

What a weekend :D

So my pally is now on Nagrand, hordeside, my mage will be there next week, and I am going to move my warrior to Amanthul so I can keep in contact with friends, however having said that this real-ID thing is pretty good in that I can still chat with everyone, but I would like to have a toon on the server so I can run with them in things etc if the opportunity arises occasionally 🙂

I went to Ulduar last night and did some of the achievements for the drake, got Razorscale, Ignis and XT…FL we only did 2 of the defenses, we gave 4 a few good attempts, but people just kept dying too early….and he has BUCKETLOADS of health…so I might try and continue with that achievement, but will take a fair bit of effort I think.

I am still trying to decide if I want to start up my own guild again or just join another one…so for the minute all my toons are in bank guilds and I just pug things, making friends and getting my name out there.  I need to get back into research mode to correct a few bits and pieces…

Speaking of which I changed to fire spec…yeah full TOTW/fire 🙂  It is nice to be back but I am so out oif practice I am missing cooldowns and everything….it’s quite nasty, but I am sure after a few weeks I will get back into the swing of it.

Also spent most of the weekend playing with my UI – can I just say – I HATE doing it!! All the prepackaged UI’s are either so over the top you can’t see what is happening in the fight o rso minimalistic I can’t see everything I want to see….I found the most sexy looking UI but I can’t figure out how to toggle some of the options like recount etc….

I also can’t find my old UI that I used to use – it was called Bati’s – and yes I can find that – but it isn’t the same anymore, it is all weird and different to what i used to use….so I am sad about that as well 😦

I will keep looking for my perfect UI, and trying to construct it in the meantime…I am not happy that reflux does not seem to be working for me either, it isn’t saving the set up anymore for some reason no matter how many times I do the commands…so that is also annoying me!!

Anyway, that’s enough from me!!  Time to do some work!!

Taurens are the shizz :D

I moved my warrior horde side 😀 Hubby has a horde fetish and wanted to run some heroics, so since I have offered my pally to the guild for xpac my warrior was doing nothing 😀

I have to get a decent picture, I didnt take any today when I did it 😀 but here is one of him getting his groove on 😀

Was very odd running around on him today, for a start – its a him!! LOL my first male toon ever I think!!

Ran a handful of heroics, wiped us twice, once due to poor management, I think my arse is now bigger than I realise and I backed into some mobs, the other time I can’t remember right now what happened, but all in all we coped and no one abused me, so that is good.

Almost got enough badges for a couple more tier 9 pieces which should boost me enough to perhaps start running UldTOC or something…..if I am lucky anyway 😀

My Pally is no longer an evil hordie :)

Yes I switched her, I will likely move my warrior horde side and make her my first ever male character, although I am not entirely sure about that yet 🙂   I might finish my hunter that is sitting on a US time server though – not sure yet 😀

Anyway – here is the new girl, yes I went spacegoat again 🙂 I like the tails ok!!?!?!


She is fully Prot now, and I am working on her tier 9 gear so I can start pugging the ICC stuff, I have 2 more of the badge pieces to try and get and to be honest if we have an alt run through ICC any time soon for the first four bosses I may see if I can snaffle her a shot 😀

I was tanking some normal runs yesterday – non heroic – to try and get back into the swing of it, made a few mistakes etc, but no one was taking aggro off me and a few of them were trying their damn hardest.  I really feel sorry for actual tanks (which may be me at Cata).  People just don’t get it 😀

It was fun to be on her again, I really enjoy tanking I have to admit.  I like it on my warrior as well, I just think AOE tanking is such less a hassle on the pally 😀 But I am pretty good with my warrior as well I think.  A little more practice and I may be good at it !!  LOL

Protadin to the rescue!!

So I have been recently running heroics on my pally, and that is probably an exaggeration, it has been about 2 weeks since I have actually logged in, but prior to this little break due to Real life, I had just started running as a tank 🙂 

I am basically trying to say, that I think I miss it!!  LOL  I think I love tanking 😀  I can see why some people hate it, but I find it far less annoying than DPSing 🙂 

I am tanking on my warrior and my pally and I cannot choose which I prefer to play as a tank, they are both uber to me.

I don’t want to play my mage at the moment, I get too depressed when I log onto her and see she has no tier 10 due to lack of raiding at the moment.  So I like being on my wariror/pally who are slowly building up badges for the tier 9 gear 🙂  Will be abe to start PUGging ICC with them soon maybe 🙂 heehh 

Just thought you should know 😀

Tank and spank

So I got all revved up and decided to tank some heroics on my warrior….I have lost a little confidence in being a tank to be honest, I feel really bad that I can’t seem to hold multiple adds very well….and I know it is just experience, but I feel like a right royal twat sometimes when I am in a group with all randoms, because they don’t know that I am new to tanking….no one has said anything about it though, so can’t be too bad, and when I have told them I am new to tanking I generally get compliments so that is always good.

However tonight….tonight was kickarse!!  I tanked HoS!!  Yes HoS!!  You know the sucky instance with Brann Wankerbeard needing to be protected during that event?  I tanked it!!  And by tanked I mean we didn’t wipe!  We had a little trouble towards the end of the event as the 2 DPS had died from standing in a fire so mobs were running around everywhere and I was doing my best to grab them all, but I don’t have a heck of a lot of AOE taunting moves…..anyway….we survived, well the rest of us did 😀 

Then as luck would have it we got UP next.  You know with the gauntlet of death and the insane flying boss, well I managed to do that as well!!  LOL  I was on a high!!  We wiped once in UP – I didn’t get far enough into a corner to do a LoS pull, so I know for next time.    I got my red sword of courage!!!  So I have a much better weapon now that people can stop mocking me for…apparently my quest reward for killing Durn at level 65 was not considered a good weapon for my tanky 😀 hehehe

So I think I am starting to get a little more confident.  Having some raid experience now and some better gear is making it a little easier to feel like I am able to click tank on the random heroic thing now!!  Just need to keep the momentum going and get the gear happening 😀  I would like to start tanking on her more often 😀  I do enjoy it when I am having a good night J

Oh that’s right I also tanked ToC!!!  As in I was one of the tanks – actually tanking!!  The RL had me doing all the icky things like picking up adds “I nailed it”  hehehe.

Only need another 10 triumps for an offhand and ring upgrade…..woot woot!

Alt time :)

My poor alts have been neglected until recently.  I have been playing them a fair bit which is so much fun. I can see why people like having alts  🙂

My warrior has been running heroics as much as possible, I picked up 2 pieces of Tier gear with my triumphs and so am starting to get her better geared. I picked up the pieces that repalced current blues to ensure better overall upgrades. 

I am getting better at tanking and am offering to run them as much as possible as tank, I am still a little slow on picking up loose mobs, but i think some of that is that I can’t see the loose mobs when my FPS start to go ballistic, and being a tank I am right in the thick of it, on top of the fact I sometimes get lost in the button smashing 🙂 heh  But I am getting there, I need more stam and I need to get my gear enchanted….which I haven’t done.

I have also started levelling her mining again and her blacksmithing. Nowhere near finisihed yet, but at least I am making an effort 😀  She is let’s say – 50% through both of them.

My shammy is stagnating at 68 waiting for the hubby to get his pally to the same level so we can level through Northrend together.  So I have taken her back to the starting areas to level her skinning and herbalism, I am hoping to be at the northrend level so whilst levelling I can get all gathering done as well and make some money off it.  We shodul be getting started on them soon, which is cool.

My priest, is now level 30 and she is going to be an enchanter/JC, I have not started either of her professions, I should start now though so i can send her everything from my other toons as I go.  I am just running her through dungeons at the moment with the random thing and levelling that way when i get some time on her.  I actually chose skinning/herbalism for her then realised I had my shammy with those two professions, so I had to find others for her to do 😀

My druid is on hold now, until Cataclysm – I want a worgen druid and I am nto going to level the same class twice 🙂  So she is just a place holder for the minute, I will be making her a LW – and not sure what else at this stage – maybe engineer 😀  So I might make her a guild bank of her own so I can start stocking stuff etc for all my levelling of professions.  No point selling all the lower level leathers, if my druid will use them later, so I just want to store them basically, same with all the gems etc

My pally hasn’t been logged into for about  months, I am considering just transferring her over to the alliance side.  I like my Pally and I miss not being able to play her. I would like to get some healing experience on her. Then I will have all bases covered, healing/tanking and DPSing 🙂 eheh

warrior stuff again

shield slam > revenge > shockwave > conc blow > devastate.

There are several different hit caps.
The melee hit cap causes all your single weapon auto attacks to always hit and causes all special melee attacks to always hit. This is reached at 8%.
The spell hit cap causes all your spells to always hit. This is reached at 17%.
The dual wield hit cap causes all your dual wield auto attacks to always hit. This is reached at 27%

Hit is almost a pure threat stat, it causes your attacks to hit more, and thus it makes you do more threat. There should be a reasonable amount of hit available on tank gear, but you shouldn’t gem or enchant for it.
The only time you should ever worry about hit caps is if you need to taunt something. If you glyph taunt, and the boss is properly debuffed (Improved Faerie Fire – Spell – World of Warcraft or Misery – Spell – World of Warcraft), you need 6% additional spell hit chance to always hit with yout taunt. This is 158 hit rating.

Note that taunt is based off of spell hit, and that you get more spell hit chance from your rating then that you get melee hit chance.

Expertise
Expertise governs two things. The chance a mob has to dodge you and the chance a boss has to parry you.
You negate the mobs chance to dodge you when you reach 6.5% dodge and parry reduction at 26 expertise skill.
You negate the mobs chance to parry you when you reach 14% dodge and parry reduction at 56 expertise skill.

A note on hit and expertise.
For both hit and expertise, the general thing to remember is this: “If you do enough threat, you don’t need more of them. It is important, though, to realize that having more of either of them will make your threat less spiky. While this effect is minor, having a string of misses at the beginning of a fight can cause someone to grab aggro.
My advice would be to not worry about getting to either cap, but not completely ignoring the stat either. Gemming or enchanting for hit or expertise shouldn’t be needed
