Infamous Soup

I'm wondering if every server has one of these. A person on their server who has become a household name. You know, the person everyone on the server has heard about, the person you can always either see typing or being mentioned in trade and general channel.

A year ago on our server, it was this guy named Eggbert. He was this bad @ss rogue who challenged people to duels for money. He was so good at ganking that whole horde guilds would put out hits on him and award DKP for proof of his deaths.

After TBC came out, we finally got someone infamous. A little gnome mage named Soup. If you're crazy enough to leave trade channel and gen chan on, you get to hear this constant barrage of SOUP IS THE BEST MAGE....followed by a stream of concurrences or Soup bashing.

He and his group are best known as being the best Alliance arena 5v5 team on our server. They however are also known for their trash talking. The words "you suck" come out of their mouths more than the clients in Amsterdam.

He's also known for being a ninja in well as taking in pugs to run instances and then kicking them out when they get to bosses and inviting his guild members.

He's even got fanboys who create level 1 gnomes to follow him around yelling "SOUP IS THE BEST MAGE"

And just the other day when I started my dwarf pally, I saw someone create a character named IhateSoup. lol.

Love him or hate him, you definitely know him on our server.

I'm wondering if he's just an anomaly or does every server have one.

Clean Slate

The format went well. The hardest part was finding the drivers for all the hardware. WoW took about 2 or so hours to install. There is about 500 megs of patches if you can believe that.

I don't think I've formatted this machine since I first installed WoW on it two years ago. Crazy, huh?

It always feels nice having a fresh comp. As soon as I get a few of the multimedia software installed on the machine I'm going to image it so I don't have to do this re-install crap again if I ever format.

I think I dodged a pretty big bullet. The Blizzard gods are lookin' out for me I suppose. LOL.

Oh, funny thing, yesterday, Felix and another guildy were online when my "hacker" was online as well. They were like, "wut are you doing in Ogrimaar?"
To which the hacker replied that they were ganking horde!

wtf? lmao.

Alachia is Dumb


oKay. Guys. Refresher course on how to not be a dumb, stupid, idiotic, moron, retard.
100x Lines of me saying F*CK!!!

SO, I have two accounts. I put my rogue on this separate account for about 5 months now. It's just her and a bank alt and of Sunday, a dwarf pally I started up.

I got this email yesterday.

Dear wow user.

Upade your account wow .
update : 8/2007

update :
(but if you clicked over the link, it really says

And because I had recently been paying for the acccount with a gift card, I didn't even think of it. I thought, oh, my account payment for the card ran out. BOOM, I click on the link. Hand over my login and password on a silver f-ing platter and go about my day.

Luckily, I'm a wow junkie and log in every day. I tried logging the account today and it kept saying, the account info was wrong. I had a funny feeling about the email because I noticed the mispelling of the world "update" too...

SO I was like F*CK! I did what I always tell other people NOT to do! NEVER click on a link from an email! NEVER NEVER NEVER! So, this fake link I got sent to was the EXACT mirror of the Blizzard login site and even kicks you to an account page that is the EXACT replica of the Blizzard acccount page. You would not be able to tell the difference. Luckily, I didn't touch my credit card info.

Anyhow, with Taint's help, I go to the Blizzard site directly on a second comp because who knows wut the hell is on my main comp now that I exposed myself to this hack. I changed the password and got sent a new one. I changed it again and logged in to assess the damage.

I had logged off in Shat last night. When I logged in, I was dead and in Razor Hill in Durotar of all places.
And the weird thing is that I'm pretty sure I had more gold. Not positive but I'm pretty sure cuz I bought primal waters last night from the AH and it cut me down quite a bit. About approx 50 more gold I think.

Nothing was missing from any of the characters except I think one bag from the bank alt but I can't be sure.

NO money gone, no mats gone, and my arena points are all there.

Luckily my rogue isn't a disenchanter.

GOD. I AM A COLOSSAL NUB. I'm just so greatful it wasn't my main account.

A few months ago, a guy wrote to me saying how he noticed his character would be logged into different places when he logged in and that it would have more levels each time. Until finally, after 20 levels, his account got banned. Weird huh? Not sure how this whole mafia works. Not even sure why they didn't strip me and send off the gold as soon as they took possession of the account.

In any case, now I have to go totally format my main machine.

SMART! real f-ing smart, genius girl!

Me and a Lock

Hahaha. I had a lot of fun tonight. Me (my sahdow priest)and a lock (syphon life/soul link) started up a 2v2 tonight to get him points for this week. It was hella fun. We climbed 310 points from 1500 to 1810 by the end of the night. It was a learning experience but tons of fun. The messed up thing was that he has no gladiator or veteren's gear yet he has 4300 arena points and 37,000 BG honor sitting around. For what??! I don't know. Hopefully he'll get his gear tomorrow and stop being a retard.

Man I love to PvP. We kept hitting 1798 and then mucking it up against a rogue team and dropping 20 points. It's hard to call when to focus the rogue or the resto shaman because both left unchecked do heinous amounts of damage, so to speak.

At first, we tried focusing the shaman but then the rogue would tear one of us up pretty fast while getting insane HPS from the shammy. What finally started to work was sort of a split DPS. Then once the rogue finished cloak of shadows, we'd focus him down and CC the shammy.

Oh. Will of the Forsake lasts 5secs. FYI. :D
*the more you know!* (que the NBC chime)

There's more to the story than that but that's all I can say on my blog. :D

Postcard from Winterspring

"....isn't it interesting that we can talk about "traveling" in WoW. Just as easy as you can say "have you ever been to France?".... you can say "Have you been to Un'Goro Crater yet? That place is so amazing! What did you think of it?!"

because what is traveling really to our perception? Seeing a new place? A particular portion of space. And that space can be made up of an infinite number of objects, nature, people, color, shapes....

And to you and me... if someone were to tell us that New York doesn't really exist in RL but having "visited it", does that take away any of our visual memory of the place or say our experiential reactions? No. Not really. We have the essence of the place in our minds.

So even though ALL of the places we have visited and seen in WoW don't exist in the RL context, they are nonetheless still very real experiential places. And honestly, there have been few places in RL that have taken my breath away as the Outlands in Azeroth...because WOW has developed a world of rich visual experiences...that are artistically motivated. It's hard to top that."

That was a response to an email I sent to Lance a few months ago replying to an idea about "vr experience" and "travel". How grounded we are in the idea of REALITY, as if it were some kind of moral issue. Perception is not grounded in physical reality obviously, there is no real TRUTH in anything except our own perception.

Having just visited Alaska from my cruise, I'd have to say this is even more real to me. I saw some of the most beautiful rainforests, rainbows, ocean views you can imagine. I thought it was breathtakingly beautiful. BUT even the sites and sounds of the real world don't compare as to when I first came upon the city of Darnassus for the first time...or road into Nagrand on the first days of TBC.

A part of me thinks a lot of it has to do with how we enagage with what we are perceiving. And in the RL, it's so limited to postcard like moments.

SO, I'm starting a postcard series of places I find amazing to visit in WoW. And since it was inspired by Lance, my first postcard goes out to him. Thanks Lance!

Damn the Mage

Okay. Every other class. It's fine. You win some, you lose some.
But unless the mage is a complete F-tard, doesn't use blink to get out of stuns or frost nova to hold off kite to wait for poisons to drop off or sheep to wait for crippling to fall off....they should be able to kite a rogue. How the hell do you beat a mage in a duel?

I went round after round with Taint's mage tonight. I open with Garrote for the silence, then I shiv to apply crippling. If he blinks away, I do deadly throw if I have a combo point available or I try to gouge.

But with ice barrier and ice armor on, the damn mage just kites me to no end. AND he's not even using his trinkets, cool downs, iceblock, or pet yet.

What is the point of giving a rogue a 5 point kidney shot when a mage can just blink out of it. That's it! I need to duel a shadow priest to feel validated. lol.

Okay. It's just a subtle observation I'm making about rogues vs mage. Seriously though, you'd have to be a really bad frost mage if you can't at least kite a rogue to some degree.

I'm also way under geared than his mage. I have like no resilience, my weapons suck for pvp. I'm waiting two weeks to get my gladiator pummeler. Mace spec FTW baby!

I have no doubt when my gear gets better, the shots between the gouges will make a difference against a mage. But until then... F- the Mage!

PvE blues

So I've been doing heroics lately on my rogue trying to get badges for the [Bloodlust Brooch]. Man, I hate PvE. It's just so monotonous. Even heroic mode is the same ol same old instance.

I guess the part I still enjoy is just hanging out with friends. It's good to have people to rag on when you're spamming the same buttons over and over again. Jaded? Me? No way! hahahaha.

Wachahahah. I'm typing this as the priest runs back to my body to rez our asses. We just wiped on the second to last pull for Slave Pens. Two rogues, mage, warrior, dwarf priest. GG when saps don't go off right :).

I really need to get revered with Sha'tar so I can do Mech Heroics instead. That's an easy, fast five badges.

After I'm done with this instance, my @ss goes back into EOTS to grind more BG honor.

Can't wait for the Lich King to come out so I can grind some more!!! hahaha. okay. Maybe I shouldn't post when waitinf or pug's bad mojo.

Walk a mile in Leather boots

Okay, so you know that ole' sayin'? You can't really know until you walk a mile in another man's shoes? Yeah. It's true.

My shadow priest has been less frustrating for sure lately due to new strategies implemented and such. I mana drain more or less now and hope to goodness I don't get focused first. Simple strategy I know but it's rocketed us up a ton.

So anyhow, I was really getting frustrated with the priest for awhile. So I switched to my rogue. Geebus. The things you learn about another class!

Kiting a rogue is soooo easy! Without deadly throw and sprint on cooldown, a rogue is basically just mincemeat against casters. Forget what I said about cloak of shadows! Not only is it necessary, it should be on a shorter cooldown!! HAHAHAHHAHA.

Yeah. It's really really helpful to play different classes. You learn a ton that you just can't by playing your own class. Even if you can switch chars with your guildies for a few games, I recommend it. (all GMs reading this ignore that statement).

I've also been playing my mage too which has been a real exercise in frustration. I'm full frost so the 2.5 second casts are a nightmare for me in BGs. It's definitely easier to play 2v2 and 3v3. I just do most of the crowd controlling but it's still difficult to juggle between cc and dps.

So yeah. I've been gearing up my rogue mostly now and hitting BGs. Step 1 for PvP integration! Any rogues want to share their DPS cycles with me, I'd love to hear it!

Right now, I'm mostly concentrating on keeping one healer completely stun locked for the duration of a battle. It's not as easy as it looks!


SO, I've decided I'll cover most of the Blizzcon experience in my next podcast...hopefully which will come out before the next Blizzcon. lol. I jest but you guys know I'm probably serious. :D kidding. again. :D

Okay. Well. Moonknight was so kind to post me a review on I-tunes and let me know about it so I thought I should check it. I'm kind of getting used to the flaming and the bad reviews etc so I braved the I-tunes review page.

It has come to my attention that my one-two star reviews seem a bit hostile. And it all is pointing to my use of bad language on the show. I really don't mind the reviews about "her form of personal blog therapy....if you want news or info about playing WOW, look somewhere else. No dreadful, simply uninteresting"

That's a good 'bad' review IMO. It lets people know what kind of podcast they're in for etc.

One was removed just awhile ago I think or edited by the user, not sure. They flamed my bad language and then accused me of clearly knowing nothing about WoW.

I'm all for honest opinions etc. But I was wondering if people could stop shooting me a low rating due to the bad language as I clearly have an explicit tag. The language is a part of my gaming culture..and the podcast is ME..not what's pleasing to the masses...but just plain ol' me...bad F-ed up language included. I don't try to use it to offend anyone and I rarely use it to demean anyone. I mostly only use it to express a feeling.

"Rotten, no good Horde Shaman! I really really hate him. That nasty beast"
"Mother F-ing Overpowered Shammy! F-ing needs to be nurfed!"

hahaha... I certainly wasn't raised to speak like this. It's just always been a part of my gaming speak since I started playing DOOM. You get excited..

I certainly don't talk to strangers like that or my parents. Just close friends and the fellow ear-bleedying sympathizers like my good ol' pal Sam. hehehe.

Anyhow, I checked to see what type of low rating reviews other podcasts got and found that almost all of them were due to "bad audio quality"...

SO. if you like WoWcast or hate WoWcast, was wondering if you could give it an honest review that doesn't have anything to do with my explicit lanage.

BTW. What do you think those guys thought and Explicit tag means???
