Curt Schilling Plays WoW

If you heard the one of the latest Instance podcast, you would know that Curt Schilling, the Boston Red Sox pitcher, plays World of Warcraft.

He has two 70s and a third on the way.

Whooda' thunk?

The Passing of a Friend

This is going to be a more personal post, than it is a world-wide post.

Sharvan, a Balance Druid, one of the founding members of Aetherial Circle, passed away today, and the details are still not know.

Everyone that knew her, loved her, she made you feel as if you were welcomed, and she did not judge.

I knew Sharvan for a little over a year, since the start of BC, when I joined Aetherial Cirlce myself. During that time, I knew of her, and spoke to her a few times, but never too in-depth. It was not until I had departed from Aetherial Circle that I started to talk to her a little bit more on Ventrilo and such, and although I did not know her as much as some did, I was still aware of what a nice person she was.

For those that knew her, she will be missed, and my condolences go out to those that were super close.

There is only one thing to say.

No Vacancy Downs Rage Winterchill!

Yep, that's right, and it only took 3 attempts.

So we're:





Kinda' funny isn't it?

I think so.

I'm just happy we got down a T6 boss. Great job everyone!

Well, it's been a while since I've posted for a couple reasons:

1) My computer is BACK into HP because it broke because I hate HP so much that I had to created a run-on sentence to describe how mad I am at HP.

2) I am kinda' faltering with my Warlock. I kept wanting to try another class, but then I kept thinking about how I swore to only play my Warlock until he's 70. So, every time I tried to play another character, I had to go back to my Warlock. So, this constant back and forth between characters led to my Warlock only being 63 and 1/2.

The obnoxious "sorry" in the title is for not writing anything, and I'll try and think of something to write tomorrow.

Level 63 Now... A Revelation!

So, my Warlock is now level 63, and after looking at my backpack, I realized something.



I started at level 60 on my Warlock with 0 (zero) gold due to the Warlock Epic Mount quest. I am level 63 with 414g. I have bought nothing, and sold everything that wasn't an upgrade. You shouldn't need to buy anything from the AH until 70 anyway, all the upgrades are available from quests/instances.

414g is WITHOUT a gathering profession, in fact, I am 1/375 Tailoring and 375/375 First Aid. Those are my professions. (You read it right, I don't have a second profession). So, I'm WELL on my way to purchasing my Flying Mount upon hitting 70 with my own gold, and I plan to see if I can get the epic "solo," without help from Hathorn.

We'll see.

April Fools!

I hope that everyone knew the stories I posted yesterday were completely false, I even put a little "april fools" in very light color at the end of each of them to make sure people didn't /pwn me when they read them and thought they were real.

Speaking of HighRoller, it is actually a mod, but when you roll for the first time after installing it, it RickRolls you, which I thought was pretty funny.

On a more editorial note, the Nihilum thing was abriged, but only one or two sentences and the actual link still stands for an original copy. I however found out today that it was indeed a fake letter written the day before April Fool's Day (those tricky bas!ards), and Nihilum is not mad at Blizzard, and they will keep playing. However, "Activision Blizzard" still doesn't make any sense.

On that note, I was just as fooled as everyone else.

I hope your April Fool's day was full of hijinks like mine was.

HighRoller Will Get You Phat Lootz Too!

HighRoller "...uses an advanced algorithm to time your roll requests to the server in order to increase your average roll value.

Note that the addon is rather large due to the advanced algorithm. It must take into account things such as Name, Race, Class, guild name, and position. I have done everything I can to make the addon as fast an efficient as possible (I use both Ace2 and Rock so that its twice as fast!)

I'm not sure if this addon is completely legal (though they say anything doable in the default UI is), so download it quickly before its taken down!

Also, this AddOn will not work on Macs due to several differences in the way system time works (sorry!)

Note: Due to initial calculations, you may be locked out of your UI for a bit the first time you roll after installing the AddOn."

It even debuted on WoWInsider, and this is a mod I am currently using, and I can't wait until my next raid.

No Vacancy downs Kil'Jaeden!

Through the use of some clever stealthing techniques, No Vacancy took a mix of 25 Rogues and Druids of all different specs into Sunwell Plateau and after hours of attempts managed to kill Kil'jaeden.

This world first took top guilds across the world by surprise especially Nihilum who was so upset by this that the majority of the guild has quit the game:

Oh blizzard why hast thou forsaken us? -- Nihilum Quits.

If you think you’re freaking hilarious (you’re not) and are thinking TOO LONG DIDN’T READ, let me sum it up for you. Nihilum is finished and most of us have quit. Bye.

It’s been a 3 year roller coaster ride. We have enjoyed ourselves, sometimes. But all good things must come to an end and all that. I think we have reached a point where enough is enough. There is only so much your face can take after repeatedly smashing it against a wall. It seems like we are fighting a multi-million dollar company whose sole purpose is to destroy every last bit of fun hardcore guilds can have. We’re a bunch of fishies swimming against the current. A rare breed of little fishies that don’t want everything given to them on a plate and are happy when they accomplish something that is a challenge.

It all really comes down to the state of the PVE game at the moment. It’s something that totally contradicts our reason for existence. We always try to use every single advantage given to us. And thus we are forced to “test” PTR content just to stay ahead or keep on par with other guilds. This is ridiculous, we should not be testing anything, an internal testing team should. Oh how incredibly awesome it would be to zone into and new instance and not have a CLUE what bosses exist, or what tactics to use to kill them, or what gear will drop.

I think the fact that No Vacancy killed Kil'jaeden before us was the final blow. Why bother trying to compete for world firsts if the leading guild has to twiddle their thumbs after some guild comes out of the blue and kills the boss before we can. Why bother race to the finish line when it’s only Kil’jaeden that matters? It’s like a four hundred meter race where everyone has to stop and wait for the last guy every hundred meters. It’s unreasonable, and makes me not want to bother. And when everyone in the guild has that mentality, it collapses.

“Make some positive suggestions instead of whining blah blah”
We are not the company with infinite resources and the best creative and design team gaming has to offer, we don’t need to come up with anything, we are useless bums living in our parents basements remember?

So what will happen to Nihilum?
Some of us will go, some of us will stay and play the casual game it’s become. But eventually you will see us make a comeback in a new game. Thanks to the fans. We pretended those level 1 whispers didn’t matter. But they made our days! We screenshotted every one, every single one! And we look at our screenshot folder on lonely days to cheer us up. Thanks to the sponsors that believed in us. We had such big plans coming for the website and the community...a pity really :(.
Goodbye cruel world...

...of Warcraft.
P.S “Activision Blizzard” doesn’t make sense.
