I think that I am mostly ready to transition over-so you can go ahead and check out now!

I'm still working on a banner (or more correctly, working on screen shots to hand to Mach to make me a banner), but I know y'all don't visit me for my quaint, photo-bucket crafted banner.

You visit me for my wit and bubbly personality!

Wordpress made me want to stab it a couple of times, but overall it seems better suited to my desire to arrange and categorize everything percisely. I sort and eat my candies by flavor, for pete's sake, I need to be able to neatly arrange my blog!

Sunday Surprise II

Two things:

One, I ran around and got enough coins to finally get the rep for this:

Woot! I am not a fan of Elekks. I do eventually want to get her a Talbuk, but that can wait. For now she's the proud owner of a pony. I'm probably the only draenei ever to not go for a night elf cat...

An 80 orc DK attacked my pally while I was (gasp!) doing dailies.
And I killed him.


Eat holy shock, bish.

I'm still sitting here giggling.

You, sir, must be the WORST DK EVAR.

By the way...

Might be moving this blog because I can't obsessively organize it to my liking. I'm moving to wordpress, but I'm not done with the digs over there for now, I'll still spam you here.

"Amber, were you bored at work today?"


Edit: OMG I have to re-tag everything! This will be awhile.

Edit again: Gah! It's more complicated!

/hides here for the time being

Amber Randomly Responds to Things

One of the nice things about WoW is that it allows you a variety of choices for your character. You really aren't pigeon holed into one thing or another.
From here, "What's your weapon of choice?"

You clearly have no idea how sick of maces I am, do you? I still have my Spellbade in my bank, just because it's not a damned mace. What other weapon hoices do I have that mages and warlocks won't scream over me taking, hm? Hm? Yeah. Bite me.

But a student at Colorado University has a theory about World of Warcraft that might sound a little out there: he believes the game is a new religion.
From here.

And the subscription fee is a tithe...?

This isn't WoW related, but go look anyway.

I've noted that killer instinct and raw hate is absolutely criticial to unleashing leet sauce dps. You've got to be angry. If you can't be angry, make stuff up. For example, Sartharion is staring at my hair... is there something he wants to say? What? The high-lighted tips on my hair makes me look like Enrique Iglesias? OMFG I'll flip out.I wonder how girls get fired up for boss fights.

From here.

Oh honey, you have no idea. It's called "You fucking men! You think you can out DPS me because I'm a girl and I don't know how to play? EAT THE BOTTOM OF THE DPS METERS FUCKERS."

...see? Not hard at all!

"Amber, I thought you were a healer."

I am. Twice over. But there's another toon currently languishing at 70, decked out in purples and with a Netherdrake from that time in which I was allowed to do something other than dish out my apparently crack-laced heals. I had a hunter main. A BM hunter, who in BC days was a delightfully monstrous creature. My second 60, and my first 70, I'm a little sad that she might get leveled...fourth? FOURTH? Oh my dear Jamethera, I'm sorry. But I was a damned good hunter. Not great, but damned good.

"When you do level her is she going to stay BM?"

Hell yeah! RAWR RED PET FOREVER!!!!!!!


There needs to be a mod out there that visually flips the way life/healthbars for players work. When they are at 100% health, it shows them as 0% and dead. When they take damage, their healthbar fills up. That way when you heal them, it seems like you are killing them (don't lie, I know you want secretly want to be MC'd by KT so you can go postal on certain people). With that kind of mod, my 15K Holy Light crits would turn from "pansy glitter of saving" into "atomic bomb on ur fase".
This quote is from here, and incidentally how I found the crack whore elf-I'm sorry, DPS belfadin-above.

Anyway. I think that would be funny, on one hand, but it would also...just absolutely break my brain after 4 years of training otherwise. I only stuck to leveling First Aid on my hunter because I still had a strong compulsion to fill green bars.

For srs.

"Do you actually talk like that, Amber?"

I may or may not actually go "lawl!" or "kek!" or perhaps slip into lolcat speak when actually talking. I can neither confirm nor deny...

Zuki, shut up, you've sat on vent.

/cue ephiphany music

Go read this.

It is an eloquent post detailing a healer plight-and it also explains why I've been going nuts.

It would help, I think, if there weren't those couple of fights still in Naxx 10 where we "need" 3 healers. Then we could just bring two, and not be bored, and get cranky when other healers step on our toes because they, too, are bored.

I will try to do a post of my own later, but I had to share that with you.

Raiding is 'Aspensive: Doing Dailies, Healadin Edition

So now you're 80 and raiding. Cool! But raiding means wiping, especially at first. Wiping means repair bills, and nevermind the cost of consumables (WHY is my alchemist on the wrong server?*)

So how the hell do you manage to chew through dailies?

I'm uberlazy and since I've gotten my coveted egg from the Oracles, I'm terribad about doing my dailies. The best way to see that I do them is to grab a buddy.

Even if it's another healer, you still kill things faster. I highly reccomend the Oracle dailies just for cash, by the way. They can help offset the cost of repairs and the little buddy you get is a built in helper. You can also often avoid killing things in general while doing them! The exception is the one "kill things as a kitty" quest but hey, you're a kitty. DPS doesn't matter when you're looking for sparklies.

Things I Do While Soling:
1) Ret aura kills things an eensy bit faster.
2) Sacred Shield yourself. It helps.
3) Use Seal of Righteousness.
4) Judge Wisdom. You'll be taking less damage with SS up, so this will cut down on downtime.
5) Judge every time it's up for the damage.
6) Holy shock!
7) Consecrate every so often if you make a lot of friends.
8) Die after horde find you.

*I have a flower-picking warrior on Sentinels. I r RP nub.

O hai

So I was poking through my blog stuffs-play with feeds, trying to figure out how to add a doodad without it offending my sense of order, etc...when I noticed something.

I have TWO followers!

Not just ONE (i c u thar)!

Hi there stranger!

"Amber, I thought you said you'd double post today with USEFUL STUFF."

Shut it. RL is a meanie head right now and I'll take what small pleasures I can get.

I'm in ur feed, spamming ur...feed...wait, no.
