Video: Hagara

Finally remembered to tape a hagara kill with the guild 🙂

I absolutely love doing these videos – I know they are terribly bad, but I enjoy it so much 🙂

Sorry I haven’t been around much, I decided to start taping our kills in DS, and so I have been spending time playing with those and uploading them to youtube etc 🙂

Drop past and say hello if you get a chance!!  My youtube nickname is onyxiia

Raiding as fire

I did my first raid the other night as full fire, and it was…interesting….to say the least…I suck at rotations at this stage…I kept getting flustered when things would proc, I have also discovered my UI SUCKS! I have cast bars over other bars and I can’t see boss debuffs, and I can’t seem to locate my dot timers….heheh

I must fix it this weekend. Hopefully before tomorrow night. I also need to make some stop cast macros as I need to get my pyro off asap and not waste time…anyway, these are all things you learn when you change specs 🙂 In all honesty I have just put up with my ui because it is such a daunting task to redo it all….and with arcane I really only needed to watch one thing….

My dps was a little touchy, but that was to be expected given I am learning rotations and getting frustrated with myself when i got it wrong. I was up there at 23k sometimes and then as low as about 12k…most of the time I was in between those…..it’s very spiky damage and I really can’t just look at a dps meter at the end of a fight and expect that to show me anything much….I really should look at the logs and see how I went and what I need to cut out on and who i can compare myself to 🙂

Aside from that I am enjoying fire, there is something satisfying about pyroblasting something three times in a row when you get a great proc run 😀

I am off to do my Ui now….it is going to take me a while and we are raiding tomorrow….so I have to have it done before then.

I uploaded the guild’s Lord Ryo kill onto my youtube page as well, and I am hoping to get the baleroc one up there tonight – if I remember to set it to upload before I go to bed tonight.

Mages, druids and everything in between…

I have completely changed my mage to be full fire spec..I figured I may as well give it a shot – worst case I just have to reforge and gem again if I fail.  I am very hit and miss with it at the moment, I would like to see what it is like in a full raid situation as opposed to heroics – which are very hard to judge anyway.

I have played with the dummies but fire is so crit dependant – I will kick arse for a few moments, then next time it will be lack lustre….I need to up my crit a little more…I am aiming for at least 15% haste – or as close to as possible…..I am currently at 13% so I am not unhappy with that.  I do however need to get some more Zandalari’s done so I can collect my tier 12 pieces – i just really dislike them 😀

My druid is finally level 70!!  YAY!  SO I have a shammy and a druid at level 70 now…..I will keep levelling my druid since I am on a roll with her 😀  My dps is terrible on her in heroics…I went into UK before and most were doing 1500 roughly…I was only cracking 1k when I was AOEing….my rotation is fine, so I can only figure it is my gear….which given what I am wearing I would not be surprised at all!!! Now that I am 70 though I will look at some LW patterns and see if there is anything that will last me a few levels…

So some other exciting info today….

http://www.mmo-champion.com/content/2529-New-Guild-Services-Now-Available-Blue-Posts

Years ago, we (being the three GM’s for our old guild) used to wonder why Blizzard didn’t have these guild services already available.  Now they do!!  Not sure why I am excited about it – I don’t have a guild and no intention of doing one again (at the moment) but I think it is pretty sweet that you won’t lose your guild and all the hard work that is put into one. Also kind of cool that you can rename it as well 😀

I guess my thoughts can change though because I signed up for the annual pass thing and there is a new xpac coming out…it’s a tempting thought to entertain….*innocent face*

I am also potentially going to be raid leading for the guild – however I am not entirely sure what my jurisdiction is or what the expectations of the guild are.  So I have to try and catch my GM for 20 minutes so I can discuss it with him and then work out what the guild wants…hopefully we can all find middle ground…somewhere…..he has basically told me to do it, but I don’t want to if I am not going to be able to push certain things like alts and under geared toons vs seeing content and having fun…..but we shall see….watch this space I guess.

So to end on a high note, here is a video of our Beth kill. This was the guild first kill, which was pretty exciting.  I also have the first kills of Baleroc and Lord Ry..which I am uploading tonight and tomorrow 🙂

I have finally figured out youtube (no more muting!!) and so will be uploading the videos I am making for our guild kills.  These are not Strat videos – so please do not treat them as such.  Just a little fun for our guild.

I hope you enjoy  – feedback is welcome!

As a point to note – I am generally running around like a monkey as I have seen these fights a grand total of 3 times, and these videos were taken on my second sighting 🙂  I am not so useless now!

Slightly flummoxed

The other reason I have not been around, is that I have been FRAPSing the guild kills and then trying to upload them somewhere for people to watch.  So far, I have only done one video – but god it took long enough.

I had to transfer them from my pc to my mac, convert each FRAP file to mp4, then put them into iMovie, piece it all together, add bits, remove stuff, then upload it.  I have uploaded it to youtube, who have disabled the audio because I have a track on it – Yes I have sent the form through to have that disputed, but that was over 4 days ago and I doubt that is going to be of any help.

I then uploaded it to my personal gallery – but people have told me they can’t view it there either.  Quicktime issues or something.  I created a vimeo account – but my file is too large for their weekly allowance and I am not going to cut more out.  So my only option is to download another program that can convert something from mp4 to wma (I am guessing) and uploading it, therefore allowing everyone to view it???

GAHHHHHHHHH

Anyway the video took me all week to do, and I was so proud of it – and I was going to link it up here for all to see, but that has not yet happened….if I find a solution I will potentially do that….

If you have any suggestions please feel free to lob them at me!!!
