Davlin hasn’t raided much.

There… I tored the bandaid….its over, you know.

Until tonight!!

I got to do my first Obsidian Sanctum (ten man) and I ROCKED THE DPS CHARTS!

I got to get into Archavon and Archavon Heroic. ROCKED THE DPS CHARTS THERE TOO!!

I’m just really happy and thought I’d share. I didn’t walk away with much…but I kinda did. Yay Bag!

Oh and I totally did my first 25 man Naxx last night too. So I’m rocking it hardcore.

The Naxx thing reminds me. I’m not a Survival Spec hunter, so I need a question answered: Is Patchwerk a good place to place traps that will proc your Lock and Load ability? It would seem to me like Patchwerk would be a great place to use trap dancing yet I saw a survival hunter just sitting back and doing nothing, of course… I also noted that on our second wipe, he never brought his pet into the fight…which, as many of BRK’s survival specced fans have pointed out, pets are about 15-20% of a survival hunter’s DPS. So that’s just silly. I think this guy just got into the group because he knew the right folks. Needless to say though, that aside, What about lock and load? Is it a viable strategy for survival hunters against Patchwerk?

Anywho, OS10, awesome, Arch 10& 25, awesome as well, Naxx 25, pretty fun, although hardly fruitful.

Here’s a nice pic:

Folks, Davlin here, and I’d like to talk to you about my affinity for fist weapons.

Why Davlin? Why fist weapons?

I just think they are cool.

This being said. Davlin went and messed up. I’m running around with Greed right now, (Yay Greed!) and the Fang of Truth (still, eek!). Yeah Fang’s an older weapon, but I don’t get out much and the hit rating is still nice. That being said. I totally did two wings of Naxx last night with my guild (Thank you Guild)! And it totally rocked socks!

But Recount messed up! How? By having a big X button that I can click on accident. So it disappears, and I love recount because I can look at my shot rotations at the end of the big run and see what shots I used the most and which ones produced the most damage. SO I FREAK OUT! 

Five minutes later (on vent the did a “Bio Break”) I figure out how to bring it back, scroll down in text and see that we rolled on a very…very…pretty Fist Weapon.


Guess who was too busy messing around with Recount to get in on the freakin roll!!!!

Anyways, Spider Wing went down faster than a Noob off of Aldor tower. We smashed Military wing all the way up to 4 Horsemen, where (I think) a combination of late night “I’m Tired” mixed in with a few of us (myself included) not being 100% on how the fight goes (wasn’t so bad for me, a quick explanation of “DPS DO THIS” saved my bacon and I didn’t know because, like I said previously, I haven’t raided much. I’ve done the Patchwerk and Spider wing side of things, not the other two… that live side vs. dead side thing rocked) led to us not being able to complete it. Probably see about going back some time soon though. Davlin loved that. Maybe I’ll bring the moth and cut her teeth on that a bit.

Anywho, that’s Dav’s weekend of things.

OH! I got Mechanical Yeti Schematic. This makes me happy just because I’m an engineer and those things are freaking expensive.

Woot me!

Next Up: Dav looks into weapon upgrades…again…

Podcast and more! Eresin asked, and we provided. We’re going to do another recording tonight, should be downloadable off of iTunes by wednesday. Special Guest Host: Mustafah, the Fury Warrior of DOOM!


In other news I finally went on a 25 man naxx, downloaded Vent, turned it on, they started talking about pimples and stuff like that, so I muted them. Made it through a pile of bosses, got no loot, but it rocked.



In other news, a special call out to my main Rogue, Mummler. Hurry up and get better bud, I need you to go sap Thrall so we can punch him in the FACE!

First off! Yay new blog look. Epic Dwarven Blogger’s taken a turn towards the different. Why, you might ask? That’s an easy one to answer.

Davlin is never happy with the look and thus its always under new direction. Tell me what you think. If y’all hate it, Davlin might change it. He also might just grab a pint and cuss you all out, take your chances.

Second on the agenda today is Dav’s absence from blogging for almost a week? (A week? Lemme check…nope…only 4 days…wow…seemed longer.) I’ve been kind of sick. “Kind of sick” equaling out to Dav can’t even sign onto WoW for much longer than maybe one Heroic a night! Oh the shame! But no worries my friends and fans, Davlin feels as though he’s on the mend, as this light hearted (yet could turn out ominously dark) post implies.

In other news, Yay Hunters loot! Got me some nice bracers last night that just ROCKED MY SOCKS! Seriously, my socks are still shaking. Yay Heroic Nexus. Sadly though, in a fit of Davlin doesn’t want to take it all (Need roll on bracers, greed and win on Frozen Orb) I passed on Sphere of Red Dragon’s Blood, because I thought the DPS guys I was running with could use it. Turns out they already had it or something better, and our wonderful healer Zaralin ended up with a useless trinket to sell off of a greed roll. Let that be a lesson to you, Davlin, being greedy’s ok when everyone you’re running with has run these Heroics a few more times than you.

Oh yeah! Naxxramus is coming up for my guild. For all you guildies of mine that read this, start doing your homework. First of all, you all need to start gearing up. Some of you are fresh 80’s, right out of the box, still smelling like the guy at the factory with the greasy hands and the cigarette who inspected the plastic wrap before you got shipped. You need to go out and you need to hit heroics, HARD! You also need to go out there (ie WoWwiki.com) and you need to read up on Naxx now now now!!!As stated in previous rantings, I don’t use Vent, even though our Guild does have a channel (thanks Zaralin), and I’m sure some other folks out there might not either, so save us some typing time and learn the fights. Yes, I will take the time to do a short refresher course before every attack, but that’s no excuse, I love you all, go read.

And finally, I’ve decided that I want to beg and plead, but since I’m lazy, I’m going to rant about what I want WoW to do in an upcoming patch and hope that by ranting about it, it’ll leap from my mind to some Blizzard Employee’s and become reality. What am I begging and pleading for?

I want a Cavern’s of Time: Gnomeregan.

You heard me right. Take the largest, most fun instance ever, and revive it.


Easiest way: Raise the level of the bosses and trash. Done. Davlin’s Happy. Jaffa Rejoices. Frejya does a little Spirit Dance. Bubba Pounds Chest in Elation.

Better way: We’ve already seen thousands of quests where you fight with or against a copy of yourself. In Old Kingdom there’s even a point against that final boss where you fight phased evil versions of your party. So here’s my plan. The same Gnomeregan map, all the baddies are the same, but the levels are bumped up so that they’re a challenge. In the little safe zone in Gnomer, instead, you find that the gnomes all holed up there were replaced by those evil blackish time dragons and they’re about to kill some hostages. Who? You and your teammates. That’s who. From the past. I’m currently unsure of if their levels should be different, but we’ll work that out in the beta testing. So the first half of the instance is a timed race to get to the hostages, and the fact that they are you is a surprise the time lord guys never told you. You get there and you have to fight a boss to free them. That’s your first boss. Then you’ve got 5 new members. Its a ten man raid! Woot! Now you and your counterparts have to make it through the rest of the instance, where every other boss is also some time dragon. The kicker? If your counterpart dies, you die. So yeah, you get extra heals with your healer’s double, and extra dps with your dps double, but if the double dies, you’re out of luck (Maybe for this reason the counterparts should be the same level as you in normal, but in heroic they are level 70’s). The final boss robot guy with the bombs can be different, sure, why not. And we’ll have it where he randomly takes a counterpart and offers them up for some sort of sacrifice thing like that chick in Utgarde Pinnacle. Oh yeah, that would rock.

Mostly I just want Gnomer to come back. I’d just be happy if they allowed us the option to make the current Gnomer heroic. No code rewrites, no huge patches. Just lemme go in there and have a challenge still. Jaffa hungers for lepers.

Ok, time to swallow my engineering pride (I’m too lazy to level the last 9 points) and send Nexultor the mats for the Nesingwary 4000. I’ve got me some Heroics to run.

Peace out!
