Oh flame kitteh, how I miss choo!

Look how HOT I am!!!!

Was going through some old screenshots the other day, and came across poser pics from when I finally got hold of Fandral’s Flamescythe, and it got me thinking about mog.

I really, really wish I could use Fandral’s AND the accompanying visual proc, but alas, Blizzard says no. I don’t quite understand how this can’t be done, especially as some of the visual procs that come from the likes of Warlock T6 are available to others. It took so long for it to drop that I can’t help but feel just a little ripped off, especially when I see warlock wings popping up all over the place.

I’ll keep Fandral’s in my bank for now, hoping and praying that one day I can become RAGEYFIREKITTEH again, but I’m not holding my breath.

Oh and on a side note, I kinda really miss this guy too. We’re coming up on the end of progression in Dragon Soul this week after rebuilding the raid team thanks to someĀ  dummy spits/gquits earlier this year, and I just can’t bring myself to feel as excited as I did when we were working on Arthas – maybe it’s because the final boss of this expansion is only ‘parts’ of his body?

I salute you BITCH KING – at least you kept us distracted at the end of an expansion!

Ima get you outta there Arthas – just hang on a little longer – takes a while, even as FLAME KITTEH!!!

An open letter to the Blizz RNG loot gnomes

No loot makes for one sad kitty šŸ˜¦

Dear Blizz,

I really feel like doing it right now – alt+Q+Q. After 26 weeks of raiding/clearing Dragon Soul every week, on both normal and now mostly heroic, you just refuse to give me or my rogue melee buddy a break. I think you KNOW what I’m talking about – Vial of Shadows and Seal of Primordial Shadows.

I’ve run LFR TWENTY EIGHT TIMES (which should demonstrate my dedication to that extra bit of dps without saying anything about the levels of insanity actual raiders experience in that environment – /wrists) , and the trinket has dropped ONCE, only to go to a bottom dwelling enhance shaman. Never seen the ring – ever. Looking at the math (not my strong point) I see that I have at least killed the first 5 bosses in DS on all difficulties 50+ times. And trinket seen – ONCE – in LFR. I have begun to wonder what the point is in continuing, especially with MoP just around the corner, where we’re forced to vendor all our hard-earned heroic gear to replace them with quest greens.

Now Blizz, we haven’t killed Spine or Madness on heroic yet, and heroic tier gear has, for the most part, been warrior/shaman/hunter tokens (GG loot gnomes >.<) which has seriously hindered our ability to gear the team evenly for these later bosses… problem is, up until recently we were running with only one of those three classes regularly, so our resto shaman has pretty much completed all 3 shaman spec HEROIC tier sets, while the rest of us drink ourselves into oblivion to numb the pain, and the lack of token drops for other classes (we often run with 3 druids, a rogue, a mage, 2 priests, a shammy, a paladinĀ  – getting my drift? Doing the numbers? Yes, that’s half a raid team sharing the same tokens THAT NEVER DROP!!!) makes it rather difficult to progress without the accompanying output increases that come from upgrades. Don’t get me wrong, we’re not loot whores, but seriously – enough is enough.

Putting best in slot, key items on a global loot table is total retardation. Giving them an average 1% drop rate is even more insane. I mean, we didn’t even see Wrath of Unchaining drop until we were well into heroic modes on the first 5 bosses, and that’s a 30% drop chance!!! Now that bloody thing drops regularly, and often goes to DE.

And Blizz, don’t even get me started on mounts…. not one. mount. ever. In all tiers of cataclysm. It’s enough to make baby jesus cry.
