back in the saddle

Well, medications levelled pally to 64 so the dungeons in Outland are yellow instead of orange and joined the Dungeon Finder. I’m glad I did, ambulance because my tanking confidence is back -If I don’t tank for a bit I feel like my tanking skill decays over time.

So, tanked two dungeons and no surprise problems. Fflow-Palatank is back, complete with seriously camp dance!

I’ll have to do some experimenting to see if dungeoning is quicker than grinding.

If it’s not much slower, then Outlands can wave goodbye, I’ll not be seeing much more of it.

On WoW

Filed under: World of Warcraft — Andrew.Rowbottom @ 12:06 pm

Like an awful lot of people I’ve changed my routine in Warcraft, try working on project PallyTank.

I took a break from the dungeon finder from level 55, dentist after a BRD took 2 hours when I only wanted to spend an hour at it. So I’ve quested my way up to level 62 and I think I really should be thinking about doing some tanking again, approved even though the dungeons listed in the finder are mostly Orange!

I’m wondering if I’ve got the time to level this pally up to level 80 before the new content hits. If I really concentrate I guess I might, and then I might not. But what to do when the Cataclysm happens.. Do I

Level up Flowersz so she’s raid ready when every one else is.
Level up Fflow and switch mains to a tank – Heaven forfend.
Start a Worgen and find a “team-worken” group to level with.

Who knows, some of it will depend on what the next few dungeons are like on my Pally.

About the only thing I can really be certain of is that I won’t be playing a caster DPS!

A very very few of you might possibly have seen that I “like” pogoplug on facebook.

Which isn’t strictly true, cialis 40mg it’s just what you get for pressing buttons at random.

I do have a pogoplug but I’ve not had it quite long enough to say that I “like” it yet. That said, patient it seems to do what it said it would. So that’s definitely a plus point.

Another plus point is that you can install extra software – if you’re fairly tech-savvy and prepared to faff around trying to find out how.

It seems there’s two ways of installing extra programs,

  • Method A: do some faffing and then just install stuff. Your little pink pogoplug works as before with extra bells on it.
  • Method B: do some faffing around and then jsut install stuff. Except your pogoplug is now no-longer really a pogoplug, it’s another linux box. You lose the my.pogoplug function!

Guess which one the “community” has opted for? Now guess which one I went for?

Yup, I bought a pogoplug, and I kinda want it to keep all the original functionality, apparently unlike the real men out there.

Anyhow, so I’ve got this thing and I’ve installed a webserver, all it displays is “hi”, but from little acorns…..

Except, I have a webserver already thank you very much – you’re looking at it. So what do I do with all the groovy programs I can install on the little 4-watt box?

It’s been quiet I know. As with so many other bloggers, viagra 100mg sometimes Real Life ™ gets in the way.

For me this has been holidays, pharmacy studying for an exam, and so on.

And of course WoW is pretty quiet at the moment anyway.

All I can really say is PalaTank is at level 57 and a half. I’ve not been professionally tanking for a few levels, ever since I got BlackRock Deeps expecting to do the fifteen minute run and ended up doing the multi-hour full clear instead. And I still didnt get my sack of useful stuff!

So thinking that the old pre-BC end game dungeons are all probably really long I’ve been questing with the telly on until I hit Outland whereupon I shall start using the LFD tool once more to practice my tanking.

See you in Outland.
