My goals in WoW for Cataclysm

I really want to get a server first achievement. I'm looking for server first Mage myself. Over the next few days I will explain about what I have in mind for how I am going to get this achievement.

Today I am looking at 80-85 speed leveling specs. Out of all three specs, Frost and Arcane look the best. I choose not to go fire because even though it looks aoe friendly, Blizz has stated that aoe in general is not the direction they wanted to take.

I am thinking about Frost as a leveling spec just because it's the traditional leveling spec pre 4.0.1. That, and with the ranged frost nova from the Water Elemental, and the Frostbolt Chill Cleave, it might help when I aggro more mobs than I can currently handle.

I am also thinking about Arcane because of talents, Arcane Blast can be talented to also put Slow on my current target. That, and with the high damage that Arcane Blast can pump out, I can imagine I can just shred through mobs. Improved Polymorph is going to be helpful for that needed stun.

Overall I can see myself going both ways, and with just a week left before Cataclysm, I need to get my shit together and find out what I am going to do!

Let me know what you guys think!

Recent haul in MTG

So on Saturday I bought 6 boosters of Rise of the Eldrazi, and 6 boosters of Worldwake. 12 total and down $40 bucks. I actually didn't do to bad for my haul of rares and mythic rares.

Rise of the Eldrazi Rares:
1 Surrakar Spellblade
1 Disaster Radius
1 Devastating Summons
1 Conquering Manticore
1 Momentous Fall
1 Awakening Zone

Over all not bad. With my plans to make an Eldrazi Spawn deck Awakening Zone is gonna be really nice.

Worldwake Rares:
1 Lodestone Golem
1 Talus Paladin
1 Jwari Shapeshifter
2 Strength of Tajuru

Worldwake Mythic Rares:
1 Omnath, Locus of Mana
1 Avenger of Zendicar (foil)

As you can see I did alot better with Worldwake boosters than I did with Rise of the Eldrazi. It makes sense though. Last week I bought a Rise of the Eldrazi Fat Pack and pulled Emrakul, The Aeon Thorns foil and non foil in 2 different boosters. I was pretty excited when I pulled a foil mythic rare, and after reading the card, I don't even know if I want to use him in anything. More than likely I will just sell him.

I apologize for not having a video of me opening up the boosters, my camera wigged out on me and just stopped. My phone did get some pictures and if you want I can show you the cards I got.

I was just at Walmart.

It was midnight. All I want to say is, FUCK THAT!!! National consumerism at it's best. Yeah I won't go there again on Black Friday. All I wanted to do is see what the crowd looked like and I could barely move.

On an unrelated note. Saturday, Meijer is having a sale on Trading Cards at 20% off. You can bet that I will be buying quite a few packs of Magic cards and recording myself opening them. Is there anything that you want to see me open? Ill make a poll and hopefully I can get some responses!

MtG Mondays

For the past few weeks I have been playing Magic: The Gathering on Mondays up at a restaurant called Tim Hortons. It was epic this time! Usually I don't do so hot since alot of people like to play RDW (Red Deck Wins). And since we play casual table top style, I can get creamed.

Well this time I had my semi decent vampire deck against two RDW decks. My partner on my team in the THB was using a rat deck with alot of sick control. The game went on for about 40 minutes because our opponents couldn't keep creatures out due to our creature control, and neither could our Vamps and Rats stay long because of just retarded burn spells. We were hitting them for about 4 a turn, and they were burning us for 3 a turn. one of the RDW pulled out a Wurmcoil Engine and really started to lay down the hurt. The last round we were at 1 life, and they were at 8. No more burn spells in their hands, and we had no more creature control cards. we attacked for 4 and it went through due to a swampwalk combo I pulled. They took it, and we had a defender left. Their draw. They tap a mountain, and lightning bolt us! We were so close to winning and it was almost our victory.  Then the next game I pulled out my elf deck and smashed them into the ground with an assault of 75 damage. That made me feel better.

A long time away.

First off, I want to apologize about my extended absence. Ive been having it rough in life and I haven't been able to commit much time to this blog. I will deliver more exciting content and awesome things in the future, I can promise you that. There are some changes that I want to make and any suggestions I would love to hear!

First off, I kinda died down on playing World of Warcraft. Maybe its because it's the end of the Wrath of the Lich King expansion. I hear alot of people are feeling that. However the amount of excitement for Cataclysm is just through the roof! What I want to do is record myself talking live about my experiences in the new content as soon as the servers go live. I will be talking live on the videos that I will be uploading to Youtube. That way you will be experiencing everything as soon as I do. What my overall goal is to get Server First with either a Mage or Blood Elf. With these videos, I wont hold back any "bad word" so if something pisses me off, I probably gonna say those naughty words like "FUCK!" or "SHIT!" or even, "FUCKING COCK SUCKING SON OF A BITCH FAGGOTY ASS ALLIANCE!!" Just ask my Guild mates, I've done it.

Another project that I want to start is something to do with Minecraft. You know the game, you love it. Now here I sit at a standstill. I don't know whether or not to do somthing like a "Let's Play: Minecraft!" or make videos of things exploding with TNT. If I get permission from our server admin, I might record whats going on in the server and how to build interesting things. Overall I have so many ideas in my hear I dont know how to sort them all out. leave some suggestions in the comments below!

Finally, I've been playing alot of Magic: the Gathering lately. I've spent alot of money and I'd like to document, hopefully by video, of my experience. One way is to show mock up games, or how my decks are constructed and how I play with my friends. It could even be something like recording myself opening up boosters and showing you guys what I got.

Overall I'm going to take a more active approach in my blog and actually commit myself to doing a good job. Would any of this interest anyone? Please let me know!
