WOOT! New IRL Loot!

Posted in Other on April 1, 2008 by pallywithash

Picked up a 22″ Hannspree widescreen LCD display today. I was considering saving up for an Apple 23″ Cinema display but felt the $900 could be spent better elsewhere. Snagged this one for $280. My screen resolution went from 1440×900 to 1680×1050 so I really can’t wait to set my UI up on this thing!Hannspree

…and a new ride = Less WoW!

Stang!Yes yes, I signed 6 years of my life away to Citibank and took out a loan on a brand spanking new 2008 Mustang GT 🙂 I know this isn’t directly related to WoW however it will indeed be effecting (already is in fact) my play time. I just can’t get enough of this thing. In fact, I just neglected a Karazhan run to take the car out for a totally pointless joy ride down the freeway. Mmmmm! Gotta love the Nikon D80 camera too.

WoW Chronicles

Being a huge fan of podcasts I couldn’t refrain from promoting this one, check out WoW Chronicles. Seems like something to do while farming those damn Primals. Episode 13 has some nice info on the upcoming patch as well as info on the Black Temple, Tier 6 and the Druid nerfs (yes!).

Kerni Illustration by Luniara

Posted in Other on February 20, 2007 by pallywithash

Felt like sharing with my faithful readers a preview of an illustration kerni_draft2.jpg that my little sister (who also plays a Pally by the name of Luniara) is doing for me. She actually began this a while back and has been SLACKING on it ever since. She’s done some really amazing illustration work and although I’m sure she’ll chew me out for posting such a rough, unfinished preview of her rendition of “Kerni” I just can’t wait to see it completed! A definite replacement for the current blog header I’ve got going now. To get it finished I guess that I just need to bribe her with SM twink runs and some gold on the side.

Sup QQadin?

Posted in Other on February 11, 2007 by pallywithash

Seriously, if I have to endure one more thread on the Paladin forums in which a Paladin, new or old feels the need to cry about how our class is weak, broken, inferior or any other negative term I’m going to puke.
QQadin
I’ve said it once and I’ll gladly say it 1000 times more. “Paladins are fine! Learn to adapt to changes!” I’m not going to outright call anyone a noob but I honestly feel that it is starting to become the case in most of these situations. So to those of you reading this, if you happen to feel the desire to QQ about your class, the noble Paladin, please take into consideration that you’re playing one of the most gear dependant classes in the game who’s role is not that of a pure DPS, a pure tank nor even a pure healer but a hybrid. You’ll never be the best at either of those roles. You can of course excel at them and be very good but you’ll never be on top.

IF YOU CANT GRASP THIS SIMPLE CONCEPT, PLEASE GET OVER IT OR REROLL A FREAKING WARLOCK!

Update: In my rage I totally forgot to mention what a great class we indeed are. Our Healing makes Priests insecure, our tanking makes Warriors shake in their boots and our DPS well, it seems people still don’t believe in us yet with that one 😉

WTB: CSS/WordPress Skinner

Posted in Other on January 31, 2007 by pallywithash

Yeah, I’m a bit tired of the current skin for the blog and the free ones that WordPress have to offer I don’t really like. So seeing as I’m pretty strong on the design side of things but incredibly nub on the coding/development side, I’m looking for someone who’d be willing to spend some time (and make a few extra bucks on the side) to develop a skin for my blog based on my own Graphics.

Hit me up on the blog comments if you’re interested and I’ll get in touch with you, or better yet contact me in game. That’s Kerni, Frostmane (US).

123 Unique Views

Grats to me I guess. I’ve been watching my traffic as of late and have notice a steady incline in unique views so I login after work tonight, check “Blog Stats” and am surprised to see that I’ve shattered my previous record of 72 views with a nice 123. Not half bad, for a Paladin blog. 🙂
