New home! Velidra.com

January 12, 2012 Leave a comment

Hello everyone!

This has been a bit in the making (ok a few weeks while I messed around with workpress, but I’ve had the domain for a while), but I’m finally moving of workpress.com and onto my own hosting!

Essentially this means that the blog is moving to velidra.com, and will allow me to have some new fancy toys, like actual wowhead tool tips!

So it would be wonderful if everyone could update those fickle things like blogrolls and RSS feeds to the new URL :D

DS 10 Normal: In review

December 23, 2011 2 comments

So I guess I’m back to blogging now. Go me. A bit of an explanation I guess, over the last little while I’ve had a fun time, I’ve managed to go from raider, to officer, to GM. Oh god. GM! :|.Raid leader usually too. Finding my rhythm as GM, and other related tasks have taken up a lot of my time. As well as some fun RL (real life) stuff, like buying and moving into my own apartment.

So today I’m going to attempt to look back at DS10 and give it a review of sorts. Does the instance hold up? Is it any “good”? Which bosses are boring and annoying? Which are decent? Which are actually enjoyable?

So this is just a post to show my support for player run pvp tournaments. Like the NAO 3v3 player run tournament from a week or two ago.

Heroic Morchok 10 rage

December 15, 2011 Leave a comment

I’d just like to take this moment, and this oppportunity to say how much a 10man fight sucks that requires 2 groups consisting of

1 tank
2 healers
1 melee soaker
1 generic DPS

This kind of makes it annoying to put together groups. Not even 10man has access to 3 healers let alone 4. Especially after a tier that required almost every fight to be 2 healed.

Thank you very much Blizzard.

State of warlocks 4.2

June 28, 2011 7 comments

Today I’m going to try and go over some of the issues facing warlocks today in pve, in a “state of …” type post, they seem to be rather popular to be written about now. I’m going to try and stay away from listing “fixes”, blizzard has a ridiculous number of tuning nobs these days, they can fix things without to much hassle.

I also think that while all of our specs pull “respectable” DPS numbers, that doesn’t mean we aren’t “broken” and don’t have issues pertaining to the class. To quote a blue from some time ago (I believe it was GC at last years blizzcon, but I could be wrong), if the best rogue spec was to sit at range and spam knife throws/fan of knifes to do competitive DPS, that would be broken and in need of being fixed. While I don’t think we are in quiet as a extreme case as that, I believe we do have issues that could be looked at.

Also, in advance, I’m sorry, this sorta ended up being a bit of a wall of text, possibly the biggest I’ve ever written on here.

The great Drain Life nerf, looking back

June 8, 2011 Leave a comment

You may have missed it, but a few weeks ago (by now at least) drain life was nerfed.

Drain Life now deals 25% less damage.

This essentially ended the reign of the drain life spec. But why? Was this a pvp nerf? A pve nerf? I’m going to delve into it, and try to figure out why this was so urgent that it has to be hot fixed NOW (well then) instead of waiting for a patch
