Intro to ESO for WoW players

January 24, 2020

Correction: I say in the video, that you can change faction after. This is not possible. You can change your race and faction but you can’t change faction without changing race. What the ability from the store lets you do, is when you create a new character you can choose any race and any alliance, so you can have say, a Breton in Aldmeri Dominion. But once you have made your character, if you want to switch to another faction, you’ll have to change race to a race that has this faction.

Clan Battlehammer’s New Technic: AFK-PvP

October 10, 2017

Now and then we go Tol Barad. Sometimes I am alone, and sometimes with Nim. And regularly I can see a ghost-dwarf-hunter showing up. But just a few seconds, then he disappears. I just never could get my hands on him.

So I became curious. I checked him on armory (here he is). Marskmanship dwarf hunter, 823 ilvl. Not much, but several of my new 110 have a lower ilvl than that. But he does have prestige 2 and honor lvl 49... How could he do it? Battlegrounds?

Tera – How to get the raptor mount, Sparky

August 19, 2016

You get the raptor mount by having two different achievements:

1) Tourist Trap.
2) Monumental Effort.


Tourist Trap

Tourist-Trap (which gives you the yellow title "Travelling" upon achievement) is to visit different cities and get the "xxx-city-tourist" in those cities. Most of the time, it is done by staying on the platform and waiting for the achievement to pop up, but there are (few) exceptions.

The Tourist-trap achievement is composed of three minor achievements: Southern Arun Tourist Attractions, Southern Shara Tourist Attractions and Northern Shara Tourist Attractions. Each of these "Tourist Attractions" achievements contains certain cities.

Tera

April 16, 2016

We started to play Tera a couple of weeks ago, and it is a game we have been fond of from start. Really nice graphics, interesting combat, funny quests, interesting leveling, beautiful music...

So we are on the server Highwatch (US) and of course, we made a guild: Scream Aim Fire, but we are not recruiting at the moment. Since we like to help guildies and that, right now, we don't know the game well enough to be able to do that, we will be waiting before we eventually begin to recruit.

I guess we'll soon will be posting builds, tips and tricks and some of our adventures.

Stay tuned!

WoW: Game over

Skærmbillede 2015-05-17 10.14WoW has changed over the year. There have been good things, of course, but also bad things.

Cataclysm was really bad. It was when we decided to stop. Back then, I had 9 level 80’s and one level 78, but I quit: Too many bugs in the extension, stupid changes… Terrible. I came back two and a half year later, with Pandaria. Some things had been changed and became better again so the game was playable.

But Panda was neither “joke” as Blizzard tried to tell us later on, it wasn’t in the lore as they pretended to justify it (yeah, there was the picture of a Panda in Warcraft III… Hardly something you can say ‘belongs to the lore’). It was a poor trial in getting more on the chinese market.

… But it didn’t work.

And now, Blizzard is tightning the grip:

Sigalit and Lehiya – The Undaunted Blood-Elves

Sigalit and Lehiya in The Grim Guzzler

(02/10-2014) – She got it!

You hear?: She got it!

Sigalit, Nimrasil’s blood-elf paladin, got it!

“It” is the Dungeons in Challenge Mode, with a medal of gold. The nine dungeons: Temple of the Jade Serpent, Mogu’shan Palace, Gate of the Setting Sun, Scarlet Monastry, Siege of Niuzao Temple, Stormstout Brewery, Shado Pan Monastry, Scarlet Halls and Scholomance exist in Challenge Mode.

The Challenge Mode means that you cannot bypass mobs (except if you use invisibility potion) and that the fights are even tougher than in Heroic. Mobs and boss don’t have any loot because what is important here, is to beat the timer. You have to kill a certain amount of mobs and bosses within a certain time.

If we take, for example, Scarlet Monastry. If you make it in 13:00 or less, you will have a gold medal. If you do it between 13:00 and 22:00, you get a silver medal, and between 22:00 and 45:00 you get bronze. More than that and you get the achievement for having completed the zone.

There are rewards for completing Challenge Modes as Bronze, Silver or Gold. If you get the Challenge mode Silver, you get the rewards for Silver and Bronze. If you get Gold, you get the rewards for Bronze, Silver and Gold.

– The reward for Bronze is the title: The Undaunted. All your characters will get the title. The title will be removed when patch 6.0.2 hits the realms.

– The reward for Silver is the Ancestral Phoenix Egg, which is mailed to you and used to redeem a Phoenix mount. The mount is not account wide

Beware of Good Reflexes

February 13, 2014

Blackfate

Sometimes, in WoW, just like in anything else, you might get into a state of “baaaaûûûûm”, you, know, if you do a lot of repetitive actions, then you get the combo in your fingers which just run on the keyboard and you think of something else while killing, gathering arrows or any other stupid thing.

I remember once, I was boosting a friend in Wailing Caverns with my Blood-Elf death knight. We were on our way out and I was just chain-killing the dinosaures on our way out: Tab -Icy Touch – Tab – Icy Touch – Tab <Ho? I didn’t remember there were bears in here> – Icy Touch <Nyaaaaaaaah> (the very dramatic sound of a Night Elf hunter dying). In my mantra I reacted too slowly and ganked a poor hunter surely going after the skinning, I apologized but… erh… It was kind of late…

Well, almost the same thing happened to me again last saturday. I was leveling my Death Knight, Blackfate (yes a Blood Elf! So what?) with Nimrasil who was with her Disc Priest (Triest). We were level 88 and in Towlong Steppes, you know, the quest where you have to kill some scorpions and gather 120 arrows?

Addict? Who? Me?

February 6, 2014

There is actually an association which takes care of ex-WoW-addicts. No, I am not joking! There are several homepage and association working on the same WoW-addict? rinciple than AA, but it for WoW. It is built in the same way: The 12 steps for recovery and all. I made a comparison with the work that has been done with ex-drug addicts (I worked as a psychologist with ex-drug addicts in 1998-2000), and they are actually using an identicle methods: You have to confess your addiction, your “sin” so to speak and begin to fight the need you think you have of killing dwarves and other vermin online.

The End of WoW?

January 30, 2014

Let’s be honest, when they made Cataclysm, Blizzard made a huge mistake. Numbers speak their own language. The number of subscribers went upward from 2005 to 2010. Topped in 2010 and then came Cataclysm, and the numbers when down. A bit up right after Mists of Pandaria was released and since down again. We are soon down to the level we were in 2006.

See the chart here, from Statista:

Yes, There CAN Be Epic Wintergrasp!

January 2, 2014

Screenshot 2014 01 02 09 58 14

Once upon a time, Wintergrasp was THE place (sorry, forgot my French accent: ZE place), where there were epic fight. 

Nowadays, it is rather empty. I still use Wintergrasp when I am gearing up, but i stop doing it when I am all honor geared. Then I don’t need honor points anymore, but conquest points, and there are no conquest points in Wintergrasp (or Tol Barad, for that matter). So I only use these two battleground while gearing up.

Since I have played mostly on Sporeggar, my other Alliance on Steamwheedle Cartel and my Horde on Defias Brotherhood are almost totally ungeared (my Horde hunter, Gwenaelle, still has greens from when she was questing, her gear is simply outrageous). So I was gearing my main, my Night Elf warrior, Scorpyo and after Tol Barad, I was in Wintergrasp. 

I was alone there, killing NPC’s to get the necessary rank to make a vehicle to smash towers. I had passed rank 1 and was working on rank 2, when I saw, in Local Defense: Central Bridge is under attack.

Darn! There was a Horde, there. And played correctly, there is no way you can win Wintergrasp in one against one if you are defending. Not unless you are totally über geared and the other totally undergeared. Especially if you are Alliance defending against Horde: There is actually a bug, if you are Horde: If you have the quests and if you are attacking. You just need to kill one NPC and then you get instantly rank 2. You can have a vehicle in no time and go and attack the fortress.

While Told Barad gives roughly 150 honor point when you lose, Wintergrasp only gives 15. So here I was on the bridge, on my mount, thinking if I wanted to keep on fighting (and most likely lose) or just go out and do something else.

Then I saw him, a Tauren death knight with close to 500k in health. He stopped and looked at me. I had my finger on the “Leave Wintergrasp” and was just about to click when he death-gripped me.

Well… He obviously had taken another decision.

The fight began.
