Irregular Meditations

From the Mind of Mister Jones

People always ask me the question, “Why are people addicted to World of Warcraft?”  Well, being a World of Warcraft player, I have an answer: It’s a fantasy role-playing game that allows millions of online players to share adventures and/or battle each other in a large interactive world. Role-playing games (or RPG) are defined as a game in which players assume the roles of characters (or avatars) in a fictional setting or world. The World of Warcraft is so vast, that it’s almost impossible to see and experience everything the game has to offer. Well, in this blog, I’ll break it down.

Precious, a miniboss in the Plagueworks, is Rotface and Festergut’s pet dog. He decimates every so often taking the raid down to 10% health. It sucks to heal when this happens.

All you do here is blow ship up. After lots of blowing shit up, it’s time to blow up the boss, the Flame Leviathan.

Deathbringer Saurfang is a little bitch. He is described as being the Lich King’s most powerful death knight. He’s not too bad unless a raid member receives Saufrang’s Boiling Blood. This cast is completely random. Once applied to a party member, it cannot be dispelled or removed. So if a healer has boiling blood, you’re fucked. Normally when a high dps player receives this, heals can keep him alive. If the player dies there is no point to cast battle resurrection, as boiling blood remains on he/she and will probably kill him before heals can restore his life. Fail.

Muradin Bronzebeard yells: Move yer jalopy or we’ll blow it out of the sky, orc! The Horde’s got no business here!

This fight is fun! The airship fight is between the Skybreaker and Orgrim’s “Hammer.” Basically, knock his shit out of the sky. Along side the air battle, the raid team will deal with the enemy boarding the alliance ship. So to counter attack, a selected number of players will board his ship consisting (using jet-packs) of a tank and lots of damage-per-second (dps). This takes place a few times during the battle. I normally stand on the ships edge casting heals to the tank. Since Orgrim’s Hammer fires rockets towards the edge of the ship, I’m always moving my ass to avoid getting blown up.
