Looks good for Priests. More glyphs to make us think more and more about which ones to use seems to be a very good idea.

Multiboxing isn't easy, and my friend Penguin MB just got ganked :(

Back to 15's

That's right, we've joined yesterday to make some arenas and the result was:

7 wins, 3 losses... and we managed to get back to 1500 bracket. We spent most of the time facing and beating the same team. The 3 losses were against 19xx, 18xx and 16xx teams. We eventually beat the 16xx team the first time we met, gaining 21 rating points :).

Most of the time I was their primary target, it’s becoming very easy to keep all Konni’s up…. resilience is making effect, except when they AoE. Rogues on me are LoL… can’t stand a chance (probably because of my spec - Holy).
We had fun, above all… specially when we met the 18xx on our last arena – 3DKs and 2 Holy Palas, now… go whine about Multiboxing.

450 Fishing Level reached - AYE!?!?!?

Cooking Skillz?

Yeah I got many... here, let me show you:

The reason why people cry

Trying to get some Wintergrasp marks of honor made me realize why I just stopped going to Wintergrasp... it's a real P.I.T.A. soooo much lag, I can't just play like that. I'm afraid it will stay like this forever... or until Blizzard limits the number of players in it. But, what else can I do? I really need [Flow of Knowledge], it offers a very considerable amount of resilience... and the fact that it procs instead of having to be "used"... makes it a very good trinket. I will only use it when all Konnis have it too, for now... I'll stick to [Forethought Talisman] - more spell power and the HoT chance it's quite useful to compensate the resilience Konnis don't have yet.

I should have a major improvement by now, I went to VoA this weekend and [Deadly Gladiator's Mooncloth Robe] dropped, it's a pitty I (as a raid leader, how stupid can I be?) had invited 4 more holy priests (beside me) to raid, result: chest lost.

New objective: [Fish Feast], yeah I know it's crazy... but @ the same time it can be quite useful for my PvE raids. I got to reach 450 cooking though... which means, a lot money to be spent.

EDIT: spent 600G to raise 9 levels of cooking, I'm standing now @ 424 - crazy sh*t.

Just found out a multiboxing penguin team in Howling Fjord's

At least there was an achievement

[PvE day] We were expected to do Sartharion with 3 Drakes, we didn't even try it because we were missing people. We went for it with only 2 Drakes and we managed to do it successfuly, achievement won: [Heroic: Twilight Duo] - I want to thank Tsunamiz for giving me so much support to get this achievement (mama aĆ­ puto do crl).

I'm missing 3 gold coins on the fishing achievement in the Dalaran fountain: [There's Gold In That There Fountain] and I'm getting bored of it... grrrrr

Got to farm some Wintergrasp marks for: [Flow of Knowledge].

I'm in for some...


The menu for this week includes as main objective Sartharion 3D - which basically consists in killing Sartharion with 3 drakes up. Seems to be the "real deal" of WotLK...

Just found out this great vid made by a guy I recently met on a Arathi Basin battleground - Pandamonium. Please watch it in HD, looks gr8... also check out his Thunderfuck vids.

It's time for Arenas

Just finished the 10 weekly arenas with 5xKonni testing their new belt: [Hateful Gladiator's Waistguard of Dominance]. We're still finding things a bit difficult but we're taking in care that I don't have the proper PvP spec neither the proper PvP glyphs - gief Dual Spec. Even though, I think things are slowly improving... we had 5 wins and 5 losses, our rating got up by 20 pts, we're currently standing @ 1454.

AoE and burst damage is still a huge issue for us... but we just got some pretty good news today.

BTW: look what I just caught [Dark Herring]. I'm a proud fisherwoman.

"[...] my goods are of the highest quality"

... boots are enchanted with Tuskarr's Vitality because I really feel the need to keep the pace with Konni's Ghost Wolves
... gloves are enchanted with +20 hit rating because I don't want my Mass Dispels, SW:Ds and Fear bombs to be resisted
... chest is enchanted with +20 resilience because 20>15

I went to AV last night with 5xKonni and discovered a new AoE imba class -> Rogue. It seems there were alot of complains about rogues not dpsing enough in PvE compared to other pure DPS classes like Mages, Warlocks and Hunters, mainly because of AoE damage. How did Blizz solve this problem? By taking off rogue's AoE skill cooldown, Fan of Knives... and now we have more incoming troubles in arenas, as if it wasn't enough the AoE made by Ret Paladins, Mages and Hunters. I really hope Blizz soon realizes that AoE damage is becoming a serious issue in WotLK, it has ruined all instances ("get them together and AoE") and it is making PvP stupid.

AoE damage is also one of the reasons that gets me to think if Holy isn't the right spec for 5vs5 arenas with a MBer... Circle of Healing looks imba but if they target me it gets so hard to stay alive, plus... my mana is lacking so much on long fights. That's where resilience comes into play, and all Konnichiwa's toons must have tons of it, so that I won't have to spam so much heal and loose so much mana trying to keep them up.

I am completely addicted to fishing now :(

It happened before with farming and it has happened now with fishing... I know it sounds stupid but it makes me so curious thinking about what type of crap will attach to my bait every time I throw it to Dalaran fountain.

Got Fish?

My fishing and cooking skills are growing up. I decided to move to Northrend once I got 350 and so I've been fishing some quite useful bunch of crap which might get me a good amount money as well.

I've just completed my first cooking daily... YAY!!!

I also had the intention to make all the Valentine Season's achievements but I've just given up... it was becoming too boring.

Check out Konni's blog... it seems he has news on his Multiboxing playground.

I'll leave you with my best fishing moments.

Hmmm... upgrades...

So.. I'm basically still learning how to configure my blog to make it more welcoming to people who visit it.
No PvP news yet. Some Konnis have already [Titansteel Guardian] crafted and they're slowly becoming what me and Merujo need to climb up on 5vs5 arena ladder.

Aaaand heeeere we go!

Merujo (aka 5xKonnichiwa) SMSed me asking if I was interested in making 10 arenas... just for the points. I joined, didn't spec Disc (even though I get some doubts on how well it works on 5vs5), didn't change Glyphs and... there I went... as a Holy bomb.
Sometimes I forgot to pop trinket, Proximo wasn't working well, we allowed alot of ressing. Result = 4 wins - 6 losses :(
We kept our suxalot rating @ 1434.
Not much to mention... beside the fact that we faced another Grim Batol Multi-Boxer to who we lost one arena and won another.

Another MB made his debut on Grim Batol -

And just to end... PvE moment of the day: Malygos-25 man down by my guild - Cartel.

And so we meet up again...

After a long break with alot of PvE in it... we've just met up again @ Aires (see pic below) and we decided to go on with our arenas. 5 Konnis are farming their gear while I'm just leveling fishing and cooking.

Stay tuned for more updates...
