Why Not

So I was looking at blog post because I haven't done that since last week and I came across this at Shadow-war blog and well it looked good so I am doing it too.

1. How long have you been blogging? What made you start? Who inspired you?

Well I started blogging back in May of 2009.  I had been playing WAR for about 5 months at the time and was enjoying it.  Around that time I started to really get involved with the community at warhammer alliance.  I had seen a few blogs and I thought hey I can do this.  I had a lot of free time at work usually so I would do it then.  I wouldn't really say anyone inspired me to do it, it is just something I felt like doing.

2. About how many hours a week would you estimate you spend on your blog?

I would say about 5 hours or so total a week I spend on my blog.  Usually all during work, but there are times at home I do it to like right now.

3. What kind of experience or background do you have with writing?

Zero, none, nada.  I have no background whatsoever.  In fact writing was my worst subject in high school and college.  I never thought I would ever write because I wanted too.  In fact I am sure you all can tell how awful I am at writing with all the grammatical mistakes that I make.

4. Talk about how you come up with blog topics. Where do you get your ideas? What or who inspires you? Where and/or how do your brainstorming?

I come up with my blog ideas through my experiences in real life.  Lately they have been short, but I am working on doing movies and other things as well.  Well actually I do have a movie ready to show you all but it won't load up on here and youtube rejected it because of some copyright issue with the music I guess.  I have other ideas that I am working on.  

5. Do you have any blogging rules or guidelines you follow? Is there anything you will not blog about?

I don't really have anything I won't post about.  I try to keep the blog clean of language and that is about it.  I am thinking about moving to a general blogging site but I am to lazy to do that right now and I probably won't for a while.     Also as you can see there is nothing I won't blog about, like my wing eating challenge.

6. Do you have any sort of a publishing schedule in terms of day of week or topic? Where do you do your writing?

Well I try to post every weekday, when I am at work and weekends it is iffy if and when I do.  I also try and post in the morning.

7. How many drafts of potential blog posts do you have right now? In what medium do you draft your posts? How often do you completely scratch or delete drafts or blog post ideas?

Draft, what is a draft.  I don't even proofread this stuff.  I just type and see what comes out.  I usually try and bust it out in one go but sometimes if it is a longer post I do it in spurts but I don't draft anything, this is all natural. 

8. If you had to leave your blog in your will to another blogger, who would you choose? To ask this in a slightly less morbid way, are there other blogs that you feel are similar to yours in content, style, or voice?

If I had to leave it to someone then it would be Mr. Meh.  The reason being he has funny post and I think it would bring humor to my blog.  I don't think there are any blogs like mine, imo.  I am one of a kind.

9. Has anything surprised you since you started blogging?

I am surprised to see people all the time in game send me tells to help with builds and friend requests.  I think I get at least 3 tells a day with questions regarding the knight.

10. What are your goals or plans for your blog going forward? Any specific goals or plans for your blog in 2010?

Well as I stated earlier I may move to a general gaming blog, but who knows.  I go where the wind takes me.  I would like to see my blog grow some more as well.  I would also like to buy fraps and start doing more movies but money is tight still.  So like I said I will see where the wind takes me.

New Years Resolution

So I have been neglecting you all lately. I am sorry. The reason being is that I usually update the blog when I am at work because I usually have nothing going on there to distract me while at home there are video games to distract me. Well any way I am doing a little update. I finely dinged 75 yay for me. I have been off and on all break because I have been hanging with a lot of friends since they are off too.

Anyway the title says new years resolution so here is mine for the game of Warhammer. I resolve to reach 80 on my knight by February. What are your resolution for Warhammer.

Fear the Feathers!!!!

So I logged on this morning before work to do some quick SCs.  You know I wasn't planning on doing really anything in them a few DBs, maybe a 1k renown in each one.  I actually did pretty good, well at least I thought I did.  Lead in damage and DBs in a lot of them.  I was actually happy with my damage hitting over 100k because usually that only happens in a premade with me now since I don't run AoA or basically any AoE.  Anyway it was fun and here are a few SSs from it.  Oh and I am going to be working on another little movie I think, I just wish I had full version of fraps but I am poor.  If anyone would like to donate for it than go right ahead I would be happy.

Well I was bored and me and a few guild mates decided to go to Gunbad on our mains and try and complete redeye.  They had never completed it and I have so when we got to the last boss they couldn't get in while I could.  So I thought hmm I wonder if I can solo the final boss in Gunbad.  First try I couldn't but then on the second try I knew what to do and I soloed him.  It was fun.

Play Time

I played a freaking ton last night.  I started at 3:30 and didn't stop till 3:30 in the morning, with only a 2 hour break to go sleigh riding with a few girls.  Yea I am a pimp I know.  Anyway I gained probably 25% of a renown rank last night and I was having a blast doing it.

I think last night reminded me why I do like this game.  Fighting destro out in Orvr, getting zerged and then ganking people with our group.  We dominated in SCs which was fun.  We only lost one and that was because people joined late and we were spread out and didn't regroup right away.  Saw a few warlord crest drop and now I am only 26 away from full warlord.  Hopefully we will go to the city soon again and do the palace again and kill those Lords there for the royals there.  Only thing I miss is running AoA because then I get to see my gaudy numbers in SCs.  Oh well I still put up good numbers not like I used to but still breaking 100k most times.

Oh and a WH in our guild Escher is a beast and had 41 DBs in one SC, it was awesome.  It was sad I was second highest with 8.

This Past Weekend

So like I said earlier we got a crap ton of snow.  I would say we got about 2ft of snow.  Which is pretty awesome and pretty dangerous.  Luckily I have a 4x4 Chevy Silverado that I can get around in pretty good.  So I was able to go places.  I didn't play as much WAR as I would have liked this weekend because some friends and I decided to just all stay together for the weekend and just hangout and play in the snow.  It was a blast.  Plus Sunday I had to go home and clear out the driveway at my Mom's house because my Dad was at work.  He works for a power company and he gets called out in big storms like this.

With all the snow and not much playing time I have yet to test out a new build I want to run.  I am trying to find the right medium between weaponskill and strength.  I might give it a shot today.

Let It Snow

Woot suppose to be getting 10-14 inches of snow tonight.  I am excited.  Hopefully power won't go out so that I can play WAR all day long Sat. and Sun.  Plus I love the snow and I will probably go do doughnuts in a parking lot.

So like I said yesterday we had our wing eating challenge at Bdubs (Buffalo Wild Wings).  We had 5 people there 1 more than I thought.  We were hoping for 250 wings between us, so 50 per person.  We got 234 wings down.  2 guys and me finished our 50 while one guy had just 4 left but couldn't do it and another had 12 left.  Granted the guy who had 12 left weighed 140 pounds and is training for the Olympics in the 800 so I thought he did well.  My stomach still hurts right now from all the wings I ate.

Also just to let you know, in that one sitting I had roughly 3600 calories.  That is crazy but I am paying for it right now.  I felt so fat afterward that I just didn't feel like moving at all in fact I still feel that way.

Oh and today is the start of Keg End.  Should be fun.

Wing Challenge

Three other friends and myself are going to Bdubs (Buffalo Wild Wings) tonight and doing a wing eating challenge of our own.  We are going to see how many wings we can eat at one sitting there.  Last time we did this we got 180 between the 4 of us.  Our goal tonight is to get over 200.  Anyway I was wondering if any of my millions of readers out there has ever done an eating challenge with friends or just any other stupid challenge with a bunch of friends that you made up or even that isn't made up but an actual challenge.

Sovereign Weapons

This was posted in my guild vent the other day and I thought I would just give people heads up to take a look at the king drop weapons even if they are not in the game, well at least that is what people are saying.  Have fun looking at it and wishing you had these weapons.

City Stage Dos

So I logged in at 4 am because I couldn't fall back asleep.  So like I said I logged in and when I did a couple other people logged in from our guild as well.  So we then just decided hey lets go to the city and try and get stage 2.  So we get to the city at about 5 or a little later than that and we have 2 instances going on.  So our 12 man got into an instance with destro and we continue to wipe them.  The other instance is empty so they got to farm it as well.  I was able to actually get a purple bag so I got my onslaught gem and was happy about that.  Anyway we flipped to stage 2 with about 3 mins left.

So our 12 man group go to the stage 2 and went to the warlord pq in the Colosseum.  Now remember this group has some of the highest renown players with the highest dps out there.  We would have been able to finish this pq with about 30 mins left so instead we decided to see what we can do in the King instance.  We went in there and started killing the mobs.  Now remember we had 1 fully warded tank and 3 semi warded tanks.  The dps had 1 fully warded and the rest semi and the healers where the same way.  We were able to down 2 lords and I got 2 royal crests thus now I can get my warlord chest and be better.  We had 2 weapons drop for us one was a AM staff which sucked because it was dps, and the other was a sword that wasn't for me.  Anyway a good day for me I think.  Because now I can get my crit up to 36% if I wanted to.  Should be fun.

The Morning

So I took today off of work to just catch up on some stuff.  Well I decided to log on to WAR this morning first to my Knight just to mail some stuff over to another character thinking that no one would be on.  Well I was wrong.  There were actually some SCs popping in the morning at 7 am which is amazing.  I am happy about that.

Christmas Wish List

Well since every other blogger is doing one like here, here, and here I guess I should do one, but I am going to be selfish and ask what I actually want on my knight.

Dear Myrmidia

I have severed you well through out this past year that I have been a Knight of the Blazing Sun.  I have defeated many an enemy that would curse and spat at your name.  I have won many battles in your honor.  I have served you well and if it be your will I hope that you grant me these wishes that I ask of you.

I have served you well with the armor and weapons that you have granted me, but it isn't enough.  I can only use a few pieces because the other pieces just don't compare even though they are harder to come by.  I feel that you need to change the armor that only a blessed few get to better represent that they are the ones truly blessed by you on the battlefield.  That they shine above all others.  If it be your will.

Our evil brothers in arms, the Chosen of Tzeentch seem to be able to Ravage anything they touch.  We are there counter part on the battlefield but even when we face off against them with Precision Strikes, it doesn't even seem to phase them.  They just run through us and Ravage our back line.  If it be your will let our Precision Strikes stand up to the onslaught of the Chosen Ravage.

Our brother in arms, the Shadow Warriors, are demoralized and are disappearing my God.  They need help or else they will disappear forever and never be heard from again.  If this happens my Lord we will have lost a great asset in our Army against the Chaos that is coming.  If it be your will let the Shadow Warriors come back stronger than ever.

I thank thee for your time in reading this my God.  If it be your will to grant these wishes that I have ask of you then let it be so.  I will continue to serve you to the best of my ability.  I will honor and glorify your name on the battlefield and destroy any that speak against you.

Your Knight of the Blazing Sun

Changing Specs.

I change my spec as much as a women changes her mind.  Haha I crack my self up.  Anyway I haven't posted anything about what spec and gear setup I am running because I have been changing it up so often that it would be pointless to post it.  Right now with the new patch I am doing an AP drain build with a high crit. build as well. So after I play this for a bit I will post my gear setup but I can tell you it is interesting.

Lets see since I have came back I have changed my spec for RvR I think at least 7 times maybe more.  It is a good thing I have a lot of money to change it.  I am also on the fence about what they did to the liniments.  I kind of like having 5% crit. now but the 60 wounds thing kind of sucks.

VP Bug Fix

Mythic fixed the VP bug today with the new patch. Here is the link for it.

The City

Ok now since destro got to our city again we had a discussion to either go to LV or go into the city. We decided to hop in the city and hope for a good fight. There was 7 total. 6 from my guild Run Like Hell and 1 more WH we picked up in the city, his name was Allimance I think, not quite sure on the spelling.

Anyway we were in the city and we pretty much dominated destro. I remember one time when right in the beginning our group wasn't paying attention and they came and killed Escher and Emayrn and Rocklein (who reach rr 80). There were 5 of them and we just weren't paying attention except I was able to kill 4 of them and would have had the 5th one also if another healer wouldn't have showed. It was funny because in vent they said Blaze run to the guards in the back, then a few secs later nevermind Blaze just killed them all.

The city was fun, still didn't get my stupid purple bag from it. The one crazy thing was that Escher a WH said he had like 76 kills in the instance which is crazy and that I was like 2nd or 3rd with only 25.

I really should get this addon sometime because I think it would be cool to see all this stuff.

PvP Yesterday

So after my well needed nap yesterday I logged on to WAR for some serious play time. I played for a good 5 or 6 hours yesterday which was fun. Started off doing some SCs by myself since not to many people were on. Then enough people from my guild (Run Like Hell) got on that we formed a group and actually did ORvR. This is the first time since I came back that I was out in the lakes. We first tried to stop Praag from locking by taking a bo. Well by the time we cleared out the destro at the bo and was working on the hero 2 warbands showed up to stop us. So we wiped and the lock Praag. We do some more SCs and I tweak my gear some more to get the best set up (Which I think I do but I will discuss that later).

So they are working on the last keep in reikland and our group shows up to stop them. First it was just us and a few stragglers but then more came. Destro was holding us off for a bit with one or two warbands while the other 2 were taking down the outer door. We wipe the ones holding us off from the keep then head to the keep. They still have more than us there at the keep when we get there so we head inside and do some popping out of the back postern to kill a few then get back in. Well we tried to get back in but since Black Orcs are so freaking huge it is sometimes hard to click the door when they have one blocking it and AoE punting people out.

So destro get the inner door down and wipe us on the bottom floor, sort of. We rez and regroup right out side and go in. We wiped every single destro in that keep and I mean we just annihilated them. After we make sure we clear the destro we get ready for the next attack and tank wall the inner door since both doors are still down. The destro ants start rolling in. We tried to hold them back but we couldn't. They take the keep in Reikland then take the last bo and they are off to the city. I was talking to some of my guild mates who have an addon that shows how many people are attacking and defending and it shows the kills. Destro had 90 some attacking while order had 40 some defending. During that whole keep take Destro killed order 192 times while order killed destro 286. So we did our best but just couldn't hold the zerg at bay. I will post later on what happened in the City.

Playing Time

Well it looks like my plans did cancel tonight so I will be able to play WAR after my nap. This actually makes me happy and I am glad my plans did change. Now I only have to get off of work to go get my nap. Man work is slow.

Still Figuring Things Out

So I am still tweaking what I want to do now. I am thinking now of going for a full blown crit. build on my Knight. I know I know how can I do that well you will just have to wait and see tomorrow when if I remember I will post screenshots of what I am doing, but I think I can get it up to 30% crit. Granted my wounds will take a little hit but it is all good.

On another note I have been exhausted lately and I don't know why. I have played WAR but not as much as I would like. Maybe after work today I will be able to take a nap and be re energized for the night of WAR.

So last night one of our 6 man groups got in a SC very late, and by that I mean we were down 405 to 0. I said in vent lets see if we can come back and win it and by golly we did. When we first got into the SC, I went straight to the other side to stop the part from being run while the rest of the group wiped the destro in front of our camp. After we did that it was just only a matter of time before we started to run the part and just kept on killing the destro. That was an awesome SC. Oh by the way it was serpents passage, I forgot to mention that.

On another not so awesome note I just found out about that VP bug and Mythic needs to fix that big time. I was wondering why they were getting into our city so often and now I know why. That is just stupid and Mythic needs to fix it because the destro are getting big heads from it thinking they are better. Just my thoughts.

Friday, December 4, 2009


So stagger is pretty awesome with a knight. I was in a city instance last night and was just running around by myself when I saw three destro's standing there guarding a flag so I think to myself hmm I wonder if I could take them all down. So I run in and pop heavens fury and started attacking the WE that was there first, I was able to down the WE before the stagger wore off of the other destros. That is when I starting attacking the other WE that was there. I popped my pocket item absorb shield then my rank 1 absorb shield and a couple of pots. I was able to bet the WE and the Choppa that was there. I was actually very impressed with my self with what I had done. Stagger is a very powerful tool that I am just getting used to using.

I also find it funny that destro healers right now ignore me because I haven't played in a while and they see me with a s/s and they think I won't hit that hard and they just sit there and let me beat on them and don't heal them self then they die. Of course I also think it is sad that I hit almost just as hard with my 1-hander than with my 2-hander. Knights need a better 2-hander.

The Prodigal Son Returns.

Yes that is right I am back in business in Warhammer. My computer that I built blew up and by that I mean my motherboard went I hate you Blaze and you should go out and do something else instead of playing video games on your computer. Your 360 misses you so why don't you go play that so I did. Also me being poor means I couldn't buy a new mobo just yet. So I played my 360 hung out some with friends and I am working on getting a girlfriend, hopefully that will come to pass.

Anyway so once I got my comp. fixed a few weeks ago I didn't feel like playing any MMO's at all so I didn't. I played Assassin's Creed II and I hunted over Thanksgiving break. Then yesterday at work I logged on to the forums for the first time in a long time and I see a best of thread. So I think to myself him lets see who is the best knight now. As I scroll through I see a lot of destro saying no knight stands out or all the goods one left or there aren't any good ones. This makes me think well I need to fix that.

So I still had my sub. running because I forgot to cancel it in time and I log back on. First thing I did was get my other horse out because I had been kicked from Run Like Hell which I expected because I had been gone for a while. Then I queued up for some SCs. I played like one or two with no one sending me any tells but when I was in the third SC right in the middle boom like 10 different people sent me tells. I was chasing down some SH I think and then just stopped running to type. I stood there for a good min or two just to answer them all and the SH came back and just watched and I guess wondered what was going on. So I get invited back to RLH and run a couple of premades and dominated them both. Of course I dominated too I mean what else do you expect. So I was happy and had fun again, now I just need to do a few tweaks in how I play because stagger will be huge for how we run. No more All out Assault running for me and thus no more 200k SCs either. Oh well.
