Goodbye WoW


A final screen shot before logging out for good.

As you have hopefully noticed, I haven’t been posting very much recently. That’s because I finally bit the bullet and decided to take a break from WoW.

Playing arena throughout TBC was some of the most fun I’ve ever had in a video game. And despite not agreeing with many of the changes that Blizzard has made in WotLK, I still  had a ton of fun in arena at level 80.

With that said, if you comment I would like you to share your most memorable arena match. Here’s mine:

In the very beginning of season 6 I played Affliction with a Disc priest. We flew to 1950 rating pretty quickly, but got stuck there for a week or so because of all the warrior teams queueing. After a few more days of playing we finally got up to 1990 and decided to queue for one more game.

We were matched up against a Rogue/Priest team and the match was incredibly intense. They couldn’t get a sap off because of the pet/soul link bug at the time, but we charged straight in anyways. The rogue put out tremendous pressure on my while the enemy priest kept trying to fear –> mana burn my priest. I had to juke the rogue while putting my pet on stay momentarily whenever the enemy priest ran in to fear (so my pet wouldn’t get feared). Dispelling fear with my pet and keeping CoEx on the enemy priest kept my priest in the clear, but there were about three or four times when I dipped down to 1k or 2k health and just barely teleported out alive.

Kiting a rogue with Teleport+CoEx, while at 2k health, is a heart pounding experience. Especially when your healer is CCed. Eventually, their trinkets were down and we got the enemy priest in a spell-lock –> fear –> MC –> fear CC chain and the rogue went down. Bam, 2k rating and furious shoulders.

Looking back, 2k isn’t even considered high anymore, but being the first warlock on the server to get furious shoulders was incredibly cool. He wore those shoulders throughout the rest of season 6 and ended up being retired in them.

I’ll miss you guys. Have a good one.

    I couldn’t agree more. It was frustrating, annoying and tedious but I enjoyed every minute of it.

    Since I’m required to post my most memorable match… an opposing healer (paladin) resurrected two times in one 3v3 match with Twisting Nether. Of course, we lost since he managed to restore his hp/mana both times.

    Needless to say I’ve lost interest in WoW quite some time ago and have no plans of returning, just in case anyone still cares.

    Good luck to you Aluraud and thanks for everything!

    Oh NOOOooo!!!

    I just barely found this awesome website, and I am so disappointed to discover that you have left.

    Thank you, though, for leaving its invaluable content up for us to reference.

    Best wishes on your life, post-WoW. And, if you decide to return again — even just to play — then do post something up?

    Take care. =)
