Beware of Good Reflexes

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 – Icy Touch (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…

Addict? Who? Me?

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 principle than AA, but it for WoW. It is built in the same way: The 12 steps for recovery and all.

Yes, There CAN Be Epic Wintergrasp!

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.
