Tanking Expert IT

Last night I had my first taste at tanking some Expert dungeons as a shieldless cleric. It’s a bit disorienting going back to the lowbie dungeons on expert mode and not being able to pull half the dungeon at one time. One thing that bothers me, immensely, is when people point at 50 being some…

Playstyle Alt

Shortly after my last post I finally nudged my Cleric into his level 50 spot. Since then I’ve pretty much done my crafting dailies, scoured Shimmersand for Carmintium, and dick else with that toon. I’ve rolled an alt instead, as I’m going to need someone to do my weapon crafting after all. So yes, he’s…

Keeping Fresh

Yeah I’m still playing Rift, just about to hit the level cap. Most of my blogging time in the past has come when work slows down and I actually have free time. All of that is gone. Has been for weeks now. Probably also doesn’t help they changed our cube farm into this weird indie…

Deep Looks: The Justicar

First, I’m going to go out on a limb here and state openly that the Justicar, although popular, is not an overpowered class by any means. They’re reasonably tanky, have some group utility and do a fair job at supporting a single character. However, they have no way to break or prevent crowd control and…

Mining for Alien Gem Boss Things

I had the pleasure of tanking Deepstrike Mines on my Cleric with a few other Circle Of Trust members a couple days ago. If I recall correctly (which I probably don’t), there was a DPS Warrior, Healing Cleric, DPS Mage and a DPS Rogue with us at the time. I don’t remember the exact names…

Drunk Rifting

¬†Tonight I might actually get some good quality rifting done. Perhaps I’ll even run that Deepstrike Mines that every keeps talking about. I think I’m a couple levels too high for it. Most of the rewards appear to be level 24, and I’m rocking a lofty level 28 and hanging out in Scarlet Gorge. Still,…

Ch-ch-ch-changes

Some of you might not know this, but I am a voracious and avid gamer. For the most part I’ve kept this blog Warhammer centric and had a side-project running for the everything else blogging. However, I like this blog and have spent much of my blogging career with the same persona. I wouldn’t want…

Tin Foil Hat Area

With the imminent headstart launch of Rift hovering only moments away, it would only be appropriate that¬†Massively publicizes a Warhammer forum thread highlighting the “Cancel Subscription” button gone missing in the account management section. It’s a sensationalist piece for sure, touting a new patch on a test server for WoW and Mortal Online offering a…
