About mastery

Photo 7-07-12 8 49 49 PM

This post is just ‘thinking out loud’. It contains no useful information, but is hoping for a response from kindred spirits. I’ve been pondering the importance of mastery. No, not that WoW class-specific stat, the one that you stack this week and reforge off the next. I’m talking about¬†actual mastery: being skilled and knowledgeable. It’s a bit late, but I suddenly realised that mastery of¬†something is incredibly important to me. And on a selfish level, maybe a vain level: being publicly masterful. Or at least publicly … Continue reading

Flitting between games

Well, it’s been a while. It’s been a while since I blogged here; it’s been a while since I played WoW. The qualifiers here are meaningful. I have been blogging lots elsewhere, and I have been playing lots of other games. “There is too much, I will sum up.” Since I stopped raiding back in March, I spent a bit of time logging into alts and mucking around. That lasted a couple of months but it gradually petered out. I haven’t logged in for a looong … Continue reading

Still wandering through D3

It’s been a while. Work has been busy and I’ve been sick, so I’ve not had the energy to do much in the evenings, any gaming has been just that and no more. I’ve been pottering away at D3 though, playing my wee barbarian. I finally finished act 2 on him, Belial inferno + Aussie pings is pretty brutal… that and it took me a while to realise I really needed a more dps build/gearing config to down him. Onto act 3 and being brutalised by … Continue reading

Diablo 3 – Hell mode cleared

Fighting two Izuals. This didn't go so well.

Last night Shigeko and I finished clearing Hell and started Inferno. Woo! We had a small run around in Inferno: finished the first few quests/areas there and it didn’t look terrifying. We only fought one champ pack and the ability combo wasn’t insane, so we killed them quickly and painlessly. I’m assuming the pain levels will ramp up heavily though as we press onwards. We thankfully didn’t come up against one of these: The difficulty of Hell difficulty We actually didn’t find Hell toooo bad. Elite … Continue reading

Demon hunter build

header3

This is as close as I’ll come to a Demon hunter ‘guide’. As usual it’s just ‘how I play my toon’. After reading last night that there is a huge variation of different class builds in Diablo 3, I thought I might record the one I’ve been using for the last couple of levels. I just hit 60, and haven’t even looked at my lvl 60 runes yet. As soon as I hit 60 we killed some champs and I didn’t want to lose my nephalem … Continue reading

Random nerdiness

I’m going to have to blame Cymre for posting this Nerdscore test this morning… and so I really just had to find out my score too. I think My maths degree has inflated my score I’m more than just my maths degree! Only today I did engaged in an email argument with an old friend who suggested that ‘debunk’ classified as a ‘word that only exists in prefixed form’. Like these. A nice little trail of searches later, I discovered that ‘debunk’ means ‘to remove the … Continue reading
