Blizzard WoW Annual Pass, Check!

What is a WoW Annual Pass?
The WoW Annual Pass is a twelve month World of Warcraft subscription which can be paid for in monthly installments.

When do I get Diablo III and the other exclusive benefits?
You’ll be able to download and play Diablo III as soon as it’s available and once you complete the one-year term, it’s yours to keep, even if you cancel your subscription. Tyrael’s Charger will be available with Patch 4.3, and beta access will go live with the beta launch.


Buyin Gold Make Murloc Cry

Blizzard added a new FAQ page all about buying gold…

blizzantigoldsignWe would like to make a clear statement here about the negative impact of buying gold and using power-leveling services. Every day, we encounter players who have been negatively affected and targeted by companies offering these services. So, we hope to raise awareness about the practices they engage in and the detrimental effects they have on all players, including their own customers, as well as on the game environment as a whole.

Oct = Mr. Chilly

If you have switched over to for WoW already then you should have received Mr. Chilly!

Mr. Chilly Mail!

Mr. Chilly Mail!

Everyone must switch to by November 11th so you might as well take 5 minutes out of your day and merge.  I waited until the BattleBot promotion was out and then merged a few months ago.


Grunty Arrives

After a month of waiting, I finally received my code for Grunty via email!


I applied my code and received my [The Marine Marine] achievement on all characters after I logged them in and looted the egg!

It’s funny to think that people would buy the Grunty code from the Blizzcon ’09 goodie bag (from Ebay) for almost $100.  If they were patient then all folks had to do was buy the $40 stream service and save a load of money.  The current ’email’ codes seem to be going for $20-30 on Ebay.

Arena Love Game – Video

New video from Quix0ticaMusic video parody of “Love Game” from Lady GaGa.

Arena Love Game

Wanted to give the alliance a little love, so the main character for the machinimated parts was a draenei. The pvp footage is from my ud priest & since the general population wanted a mix of footage, I had just a short couple clips of me irl.


Bad Mojo No More

My guild I’ve been apped to for the last month and a half <Bad Mojo> will no longer be competitive, at least not in the 25man area. Last night I left and joined my ‘bank’ guild I made years ago.

uriah-smokeychefThe following message is on the homepage of the guild website

It’s been a great run guys. Much love to you all for taking this from a guild where I sat on Vent almost 4 years ago wiping 5 hours to the Bat Boss in ZG and wondering how we’d ever get 40 people for MC to the force we’d become. The joke, to me, was that we were never supposed to survive and we were even less supposed to compete. Vets and Officers recall the cheers when we broke Garona top 30 after just finding out about the progression thread in Vanilla.

The days the days. But now, life calls and new things await us all. I’m sure I’ll toss up a few more updates including a final Bombay and perhaps some old nostalgic screens to recall the olden days. But for now, goodbye. Thank you to those who competed with us. Thank you to those who supported us. Most of all, thank you to those who said we couldn’t or shouldn’t and made us do it out of spite more than anything.

In the words of Warengine upon hearing Lunaris disbanded,
“They may be better, but we hang on like angry f**king badgers.”
Tonight the lights go dim. /salute.

Chuck was my 75th pet so I also got the achievement [Lil’ Game Hunter] as soon as I summoned him.
Here’s my little Little Deer… that has basically no animation.

Anub’arak [25] Normal (One-Shot)

Tonight the guild took on Anub’arak, the final boss in patch 3.2’s Trial of the Crusader raid zone.

After clearing the other four encounters leading up to Anub, we one-shotted the big bug and collected our loots. [Call of the Crusade (25 player)]

The raid moved on to Ulduar for our Algalon hour of the week.  We came close but no kill this raid lockout. I blame myself for some of the failure from my lack of experience with the encounter.

Gear update: Tonight I bought my second T9 piece and also won a nice offhand to use:
[Kel’Thuzad’s Leggings of Triumph] & [Chalice of Searing Light]

WoW Faction Change Online

Well, folks who want to reroll the opposite faction can now do so with ease if they want to pay $30.

“This service lets you change a character’s faction from Alliance to Horde or from Horde to Alliance. A mandatory opposite-faction race change is part of the faction change process, and the full range of customization options offered by the Character Re-Customization service is included as well. Each faction change costs $30.00 USD.” Check your Account Management for this service.


Check out the official faction change FAQ for more info (or Blizzard Support FAQ).
“When a character changes factions, that character’s information including achievements, reputations, and items are automatically switched to those of their new faction when appropriate.”

I think a lot of people will go for this because they can switch (and wait 60 days) then just switch back with the goal of just changing the race of the original faction.

Q:  When I change a character back to its original faction, can I select any new race?
A:  Yes. As noted previously, though, you will only be able to select a race that is available to the character’s class.
