Spell Haste Stacking Guide – Part I

Posted in Guides, Holy Spec, Raiding, Talents & Spells on July 2, 2008 by pallywithash



As my guildies well know, I have been testing out Spell haste for Sunwell and despite my doubt I’ve found that thus far, it’s not half bad. My initial response to the Spell Haste stat was—negative. I’ve honestly never been a fan of it and always felt to gimp my +Healing, Spell Crit % and Mp5 in favor of Spell haste was completely ludicris. My initial intent of this guide was to help out the other Paladins in my guild however I felt that since Spell Haste stacking is relatively new to the game, it would be nice to write an actual guide for it. So, if you’re still interested in upping your HPS read on after the jump.

Sunwell, 8/8 and Corrupt Ex-GM’s.

Posted in Guild, Items, Raiding on June 25, 2008 by pallywithash

Yes, what a mouthful! A quick summary since I don’t have the energy or time to go in depth. About 2 months ago I felt a need to jump to a more mature guild, not to mention I had this growing feeling that my GM (Amazed/Titharenko) was going to fuck the entire guild over at any given moment.

So, with that eerie thought paired with our lack of progression — I left Cloverfield and joined one of the top Alliance guilds on Frostmane, Dragonflight. Shortly after leaving Cloverfield I come to find out that Mr. Amazed the GM has been selling Cloverfield’s Black Temple and Mount Hyjal raid ID’s to another top Alliance guild, pocketing the gold for his own selfish reasons. Now, he and I had a few talks when I was in the guild about him putting his account up for sale, checking how much it was actually worth — finding this out from my ex-guildies only supports my thoughts about him being crooked. Oh well. Onto bigger and much better things right? Continue reading

Shield WOOT!

Posted in Guild, Items on May 15, 2008 by pallywithash

7 weeks later…it finally drops. Had the the gem and enchanting mats already sitting in my bags. Nice upgrade, not I don’t look like a ghetto pally! Bastion of Light!!!

Been a pretty lame week for raiding though. People are either quitting the game/guild or just outright not showing up. I guess that since it is indeed finals week for the teenie boppers in our guild as well as the college students that it’s somewhat understandable but it’s outright frustrating for us losers that work 9-5 and come home to raid. 

On a non-WoW note, closing on my condo in a few weeks. Will be nice to move in and have a place that I can call my own. Definitely going to be pimping out my “gaming station” 😉 LOL


Still no damn shield(s)…

Posted in Items, Raiding on May 7, 2008 by pallywithash

Yet another raid week goes by in which neither Felstone Bulwark nor Bastion of Light have dropped. I hate being next in line for an item and it taking weeks months to drop. I don’t mean to QQ but it’s getting annoying. Guess my good old Karazhan shield will have to do for now…


And what do you know…no less than 30 seconds after I made this post, I come back into game and realize that Shroud of the Final Stand was just looted to me 🙂 Ironic isn’t it? 

UI Update

Posted in UI on May 2, 2008 by pallywithash

Updated parts of my UI again. The ongoing quest to get something that I am completely happy with is coming close to being “complete”. I am still working on textures for my unit frames as well as trying to find a good font for the bars, combat text and unit frames. I’d love to get an all caps version of the Zurich CT typeface but cant figure it out in Clearfont yet.





Boss Updates…

Posted in Guild, Raiding on May 1, 2008 by pallywithash

Quicky post…we’re working on Bloodboil in BT, Archimonde in Hyjal. Things are going well so far. Unfortunately, our MT and a few other vital players can’t seem to get a stable connection. DC’s FTL.

Also, picked up the guild first T6 gloves the other night and now wishing my damn shield would drop off of Anatheron (or Supremus).


Kaz’rogal: The Boss that hates healers.

Posted in Guild, Raiding on April 3, 2008 by pallywithash

Once again, a boss fight that I absolutely hate. This big fella likes to cast a debuff that eats your mana and when you get to zero, you go boom boom. Anyway, we killed him last night on our 2nd attempt (the first attempt we took him to 1%). Honestly, I feel a little bit “left behind” since a lot of guilds killed this guy months ago and are already farming Black Temple but it’s been really nice killing new bosses.  Thus far, I’ve enjoyed Hyjal quite a bit. Anyway, heres the screenshot. Sneak peek of the updated UI too. screenshot_040108_234832.jpeg
