So This is Christmas

Best Damn Tavern in Stormwind

(There’s your clickable holiday treat: a pic of the best damn tavern in Stormwind. The bartender is always AFK so the drinks are on the house.)

Don’t spend the holiday weekend in some remote graveyard, or as a ghost, or naked at your bindpoint, or however your game of choice punishes you for death. Take some time off and put in face time with the family and friends. Play your cards right and you’ll get guilt-free gaming the next week. Lots of it.

Speaking of drinking heavily and pretending to listen to family conversation, AFK Gamer is AFK for the holidays.

Have a good one,


Rage and Hate

My latest “hiding from the Warcraft guild” alt, NoobWarlock, received his/her/its first gold solicitation last week:

Gold for Noobs

I’m so proud.

At the time, NoobWarlock was level 13 or some shit. An intelligent spam system might serve the gold sites better than a buckshot approach, but that’s just me overthinking the marketing behind the madness.

Raster, blog slave and Foton Guild Puppet (although he disputes that — ha!), is constantly bitching about this other warrior in our guild. Calls him “Mr. Can’t Hold Aggro” and “Sir StunnedAlot”. He’s tried to give the guy a few helpful hints, in a constructive manner, (which I can tell you is some doing for a guy like Raster), but all for naught. No improvement whatsoever.

“Have you tried Blood Rage?” (WoW Noob Lesson: Rage is the juice that a warrior uses for his leet moves. Although usually generated by taking hits, pre-combat rage can be made with Blood Rage.) “Blood rage is your friend.” “I use blood rage. I like it. So do the warlocks.” “You’ve got to have rage to get the hate.” “COULD YOU JUST USE GODDAMN BLOOD RAGE??”

Numerous tells and spiffy slogans later, the guy still begins every fight, no matter how critical, completely outta juice.

Sometimes, he finishes the fights without rage either which is a complete mystery to us.

Anyways, the guild was out in Silithus, summoning epic mobs for fun and faction, and Sir StunnedAlot (“S” in the screenie below) was on tank duty. Why wasn’t Raster tanking? I forget, but from this screenshot it looks like we were bitching in tells. Again.

Any chance that thing will be tanked soon?

God. We’re such dicks.
