  • Like a Goblin between two Taurens
    on Jul 29, 2011
    Level 52I was in a Zul’Farrak run and tanking between a mele shammy Tauren and another warrior Tauren and boy did I feel small. If I was a Gnome I would have thought I would be dinner for sure. But alas I was using my mighty Gobby power to compensa...

    Asphodel and Samuel continued the journey to Ramah’s cottage in relative silence. Asphodel pondered her father’s words while enjoying the warmth of the sun on her back. Lost in thought, she swatted at a fly that was playfully buzzing around her l...
  • Scarlet...Main...Whatever
    on Jul 1, 2011
    The new patch has arrived and before I get too preoccupied with gearing the grownups and venturing into the Firelands, I should spend some time with Breë. (Before she becomes even angrier with me.) Also the Midsummer Festival is on and I also promis...
  • The journey to 50
    on Jun 4, 2011
    I am still slowly making my way through all of the classic dungeons. Trying to make the journey interesting with the goal of end game content in mind isn’t the easiest task, especially with thought of grinding rep for gear later on. Nevertheless on...
  • The Scarlet Monastery
    on May 1, 2011
    This instance has been divided into various sections; completed at different levels.GraveyardFamiliar to those who have chased after the Headless Horseman, the Graveyard is the first section of the Scarlet Monastery. This is one of those instances wh...
  • Maraudon and Razorfen Downs
    on Apr 26, 2011
    MaraudonLevel 38I must be having a run of good luck as this instance was the most fun that I have had tanking so far. I only queued for the Wicked Grotto but we continued and finished the instance, getting the achievement by killing the Princess, muc...

  • Gnomeregan and When is it Right to Kick?
    on Apr 21, 2011
    GnomereganLevel 32Ok so I must admit before I mustered the courage to tank Gnomer I ran a higher alt through the instance first. I think the trickiest thing about the instance is knowing your way around; so I did my research and worked out the path b...

    Samuel took the rest of the morning off to take Asphodel to her future. Her meager possessions barely filled the wagon that Samuel used to transport the flour throughout the village. Asphodel had only packed another set of work clothes, one coat to k...

    “But of course our ‘Del was nowhere to be seen.” Michael playfully elbowed his sister in the ribs.“And Zachariah here was chosen next. You will make an excellent blacksmith,” Martha said as she cleaned a blueberry stain from Zachariah’s c...
  • Blackfathom Deeps and Stormwind Stockade
    on Apr 20, 2011
    Blackfathom Deeps Level 28Blackfathom Deeps was the first instance I ever completed. I thought, “wow this is cool”, running around killing things with other people. This was before I knew anything about mechanics and class abilities. Needless to...
  • Shadowfang Keep
    on Apr 19, 2011
    Level 24 Shadowfang Keep is another old school instance that has been revamped in Cataclysm that also has an interesting and challenging Heroic mode. I quite like the look of the old romantic castle, straight out of a fairy tale but one that is...
  • Deadmines and Wailing Caverns
    on Apr 16, 2011
    The DeadminesLevel 21I have fond memories of Deadmines, growing up as a little wow player back in the day. Before the DF tool it was one of those instances where one was run through by a higher lvl guildmate rather than a 5 man group. Now in its Hero...

    So you have probably heard the news that Blizzard is going to release a Call to Arms for the DF system in the next patch, 4.1 In patch 4.1 we'll be introducing Dungeon Finder: Call to Arms, a new system intended to lowerqueue times. Call to Arms will...
  • Ragefire Chasm
    on Apr 14, 2011
    Ragefire Chasm is the first instance that once will expect to face. So I pressed I and joined the queue. Surprisingly it wasn’t instant, I would face a 9 minute wait. Relief. But why should I be so nervous about this harmless instance? I have been...
  • About me
    on Apr 13, 2011
    Bree is a protection spec Goblin warrior and GM of run away little girl, my own personal hommage to Deadly Boss Mods. Just think when Skadi the Ruthless jumps down in UP and starts to whirlwind and all you can hear is "run away little girl" or go spl...
  • Lets do this
    on Apr 13, 2011
    I have always wanted to tank. I have given fury a go, even attempted to tank a few 5-mans back in the day but have never really felt comfortable with the role. I have healers and a few dps but there has always been somthing missing with my gamep...

    “I’m here, sorry I’m late for breakfast.” Asphodel chose that moment to walk into the kitchen and the conversation, trailed by Joshua and Daniel.All eyes turned to face the young girl who seated herself next to her older brother, seemingly un...

    “Can someone please turn down the sun,” Zachariah murmured with his head on the kitchen table. “It’s too bright.”“My love,” Martha patted her son on the head. “Not even the gods have the power to dim the sun. Here drink this,” she i...

    Asphodel instantly felt the warmth of the valor burning her throat, all the way down until it reached her stomach. She stood up a little too quickly and the world around spun.  Her gaze settled on the shiny figures dancing in the middle of the c...
