The Fractured Front - Deepholm

Seasonal events – oh how I love to hate them. It used to be about getting the What A Long, Strange Trip It’s Been achievement for the Master Flying reward… but then I accidentally bought the flying so now it’s simply about getting the achievement points. The drake isn’t a bad reward either.

So anyway, Love is in the Air… this seasonal is pretty easy. After a few days of the dailies, you’ll pretty much be set to finish all the achievements, including the bonus achievements Tough Love, Lovely Luck Is On Your Side, and Perma-Peddle (that’s the cupid pet). Read on to find a quick and easy little guide for this colorful seasonal event and your Fool for Love achievement.

How To: Playing WoW on Dual Monitors

Dual Monitor World of Warcraft

Some people have asked how I have my game playing across both monitors, so below is my tutorial on how to set it up. It’s not for the faint of heart and requires a good knowledge of editing shortcuts and the WoW config file and monitor resolutions.

The benefits of this setup is so you can have nothing but health bars, hotbars, and aura alerts on your main screen while everything else is on the off-screen. Keeps everything super clean and clear on the monitor you look at the most while maintaining the same FPS since the off-monitor is not rendering anything. Read through the break for all the techy details on setting up a dual-monitor WoW.

Val & Thera First Kill

A few days after the guild drama, a roster cut by well over half its normal raiders, a new website, and the switch from Ventrilo to Mumble, Imminent Destruction was back on top. We carried our Halfus lockout into a new week and Valiona & Theralion went down after many hard fought attempts.

That was last week. This week we started fresh. With everyone amped up we stormed into Halfus’s lair and one-shot the dude. Five of us died in the process, but a win is a win. We got some very happy loot. After collecting ourselves we went to fight the sisters high on life. It was ugly. They showed us just how mean they are. After 14 attemps and a good handful of unlucky RNG deaths, they finally went down. Yaegar got more loots – yeah he’s definitely a loot whore. Read through the cut to get a little insight into the dungeon that is Bastion of Twilight.

I’m a Switcher

February 3, 2011 - 12:03 pm 1 Comment

Let me begin by saying, when I started World of Warcraft in the vanilla beta, I was a Hordie. My very first character was Aalwein, a troll hunter. My trusted companion was Death Flayer (which took a several hours camp to get). That character still exists today… transported from Arthas to Khaz’Goroth and renamed Gesthal. He never got past level 54, never made any real progress in tradeskills, and the only action he has seen in the last 6 years or so has been laundering Horde cooking recipes and cosmetic pets onto the Alliance market. So when I say “I’m a switcher,” it’s a bit like saying I’m back to my roots.

Since my wife (girlfriend at the time) started playing WoW, I’ve been Alliance. Mind you, blood elves didn’t exist yet and she refused to play an “ugly” character. So along came her cute little gnome mage with pink pigtails while a new Aalwein was born, of the night elven lineage. Years later, my account is dotted with characters on many servers, but the only ones out of their teens, aside from Gesthal, are Alliance characters. That is, until just last week; Saporo is my new blood elf warrior. Hit the jump to find out why I’m a switcher.
