This was awe-inspiring. Sameji here apparently felt that the fire behind him was just too far away, so he made his own so he wouldn't have to move at all. :)

I should also probably mention that this is the last screenshot I have that's worth showing. I'm not playing right now (no money for subscription, and no reason to play until they bother to put some effort into the shaman class) so it's going to be a while until I can find something new to post. I WILL be back though. And maybe I'll find something to fill the void.

Here's another pic of my alt, Inebrius (left). He got the growth buff from Sen'jin village. Posted by Picasa

Here's a better shot of Grobb. This is our first attempt at killing him. If I remember correctly, I was there for the first attempt, but then I got subbed out. I think they wiped 2 or 3 more times before they killed him. That was probably less than an hour after our first Patchwerk kill. So yea, Grobb is an easy fight if you know what to do.

And yes, that's yet ANOTHER boss kill that I missed. :) Posted by Picasa

Someone spent a LOT of time creating a Degar-themed pile of corpses in Org. They all went along the lines of "Degarishot" and so on. Posted by Picasa

I still find some beautiful stuff that I haven't screenshotted once in a while. This one turned out really nice. It's the tower in the northwestern part of Desolace. Posted by Picasa

I'm trying to convert my old page template to the new Blogger system. So don't worry if the site looks different, because it's not permanent.

I just wanted to see if anyone is actually visiting this site. Nobody ever comments on anything, and that makes me sad, or at least less neutrally dead inside.

You don't have to sign up for an account or anything. Click on "Post" (at the bottom of this entry), and a small window will pop up. Choose "Other" or "Anonymous", fill in your name (if you choose Other), and type in the wavy letters you see. That's it!

Let's use this post as a test. Go ahead and say whatever you want. And if you can't get it to work, e-mail me directly. Be sure to tell me what OS and web browser (and version) you're using.

Thanks!

PS: I'm currently taking a break from WoW, possibly until the expansion (assuming that they bother to fix the Elemental tree), but I've still got some good pics to post here in the days ahead.

These portals are at the end of each wing of Naxx, and are accessible once you've killed the final boss of the wing. They just bring you back to the entrance, but that's a nice feature to have.

Sorry Bok, looks like I missed you in this shot. :(

My first Maexxna kill, from last night. Funny how frequently I miss our FIRST kills. This was our third, I think.

There's Patchwerk. We gave him one try, and that's the fastest I've ever seen 3 tanks die.

Near the beginning of the Abomination wing, Grobbulus comes out to hassle you. You don't actually get to fight him until you've killed a different boss first.

I finally got to grab a Heart of Hakkar, and get a ZHC. This is part of the cool ceremony they do to destroy the heart and banish Hakkar once and for all.

One of the rooms in Naxx. Quite different from the others, wouldn't you say?

For those of you who will probably never set foot in Naxxramas: in the entrance, there are windows in the floor that let you look down and see the Plaguelands. Naxx is VERY cool.

Here I am flying on one of the Ghost Gryphons in the Eastern Plaguelands.

If you didn't know, the Northwestern tower in EPL can be captured by your faction, and it gives you access to a flight master who can send you to any of the other towers.

Nobody was around the tower, so I hid in a bush behind it, flagged for PvP, and waited until I captured the tower. Then, just as someone was coming to kill me, I grabbed a Ghost Gryphon out of there! I'm such a damn coward.

I decided to write a post on Blizzard's shaman forums about the numerous problems still facing our class, with the emphasis placed on the Elemental tree and how useful/desirable it is to raids.

Of course, this was a complete waste of time, because Blizzard hasn't given any indication that they're reading ANYTHING on the shaman forums since they fucked up our half-review.

So to make that post less of a waste of my time, I thought I'd put a link here so people can read it if they want. And who knows, maybe someone from Blizzard will visit this site and they'll say "oh my god, we completely forgot about shamans for the past 2 years!"

Well, we finally killed the eye-covered monstrosity at the end of AQ40. Man, it feels good.

Unfortunately, I was rotated out to give another shaman more experience in the fight, so I missed the kill. But I was there when we got him down to 3%, so hopefully that's proof enough for ya.

I'll have a real killshot up some time this week when we kill him again.

Got to Grand Widow Faerlina today...

...and bagged her! I think it was our 5th or 6th try too.

It's a pretty quick fight (4 mins), but it wasn't particularly interesting from a Shaman standpoint. For nearly the entire fight, I couldn't do anything but whack my Decurse button because she's got an insane poison bolt attack. I guess the priests got to do some mind control though.

We defeated Eranikus in Moonglade to complete the Scepter of the Shifting Sands quest for one of our guild members. This was a pretty impressive fight. The first time we tried it, we were helping Darkfire (an Alliance guild). They had a full raid, we had a full raid, and we wiped on it.

This time, it was just our raid, another 10 people or so, and a good strategy, and we bagged him on our first try. In fact, we had him below 20% by the time Tyrande showed up (you've just gotta fight him until she shows up, and then she casts a spell to make him good again).

Not much to tell. I participated in my first kill in Naxxramas today. We downed Anub'Rekhan, which the guild has been doing for several weeks now, but I finally got a chance today.

I don't really know what was going on. The tanks had him completely under control, so all I did were the things always do in a fight: heal, drop totems, and lag.

Oh, and apparently there's a...ahem...bug with the bug model. He's probably the coolest-looking character in the game, but right now he shows up as being entirely black.

Hey, if anyone at Blizzard reads this, the Draenor server REALLY needs some attention. I got disconnected at least 8 times tonight (we did BWL too), and since the new patch was released, I've been getting numerous DC's each night. Never had it happen more than once a month previously.

I direct your attention to the RaidStatus window, just to the left of a dead Vael.
(Lag has been terrible since the stupid cross-server battlegrounds thing was implemented; he's usually a very easy fight for us.)

Man...none of my gear matches!

Hat from AQ40, shoulders from BWL, shield and gloves from ZG, chest and weapon from MC...

Well, this is just my Soloing set. For regular raid healbotting, I wear 5 pieces of Earthfury and 3 of Ten Storms.

Oh, by the way. Just got the Stormcaller diadem (which apparently means "hat") today, and the Ten Storms shoulders and gloves Monday.

I'm not trying to brag...just about everyone else in the guild has this or better stuff already.

Participated in my first Twin Emperors kill.

Yes, this is the BEST image I could take. And when they're dead, they're on opposite sides of the room too (because you have to keep them far from each other), so there's really no way to get a good shot that doesn't involve an eventual raid wipe.

Another great view of Huhuran's room. It's a lot easier to get a good shot once she's dead.

My hunter Inebrius is starting to get pretty cool. I've got him up to lvl. 31 now. It's taken me about a year to get him from 25-31.

I'm trying something new. I'm putting the text BEFORE the pictures. It's CRAZINESS!

Tonight was my first raid since I got back from my unwanted hiatus. I was going to wait a couple more days, but the guild needed me, so I was only too happy to oblige.

And they threw me at C'Thun himself! They've been working on him for a week or two now, and this is the first time they've gotten to Phase 2! I didn't get to see the inside of C'Thun's stomach, unfortunately, but the rest was pretty sweet. It's by far the most original boss fight in the game (excluding Naxx...I haven't been in there yet so I wouldn't know what it's like).

Here's what he's got: tentacles that toss you around, eyestalks that Mind Flay, a big-ass chained Green Eye Beam that doubles in strength with each person it hits (I've seen it hit for over 10 million damage), a RED eye beam that sweeps the entire room and kills anyone in its path, and that's just Phase One (just the Eye of C'Thun). Phase Two (the whole body) is similar to Phase One, but there are also different tentacles, and MOUTHS that will SWALLOW you. When you're swallowed, you actually go down inside his stomach, and you can either attack him from the inside (while being digested) or find the springy part that will throw you back out.

Whew!
