Blood Elven FURY! (Six tips when rolling a Blood Elf: Part 1/2)

This is a somewhat short post, still kind of ill.

I don't play a Blood Elf and I only reached about level 20 on my Blood Elf hunter. But as the World of Warcraft god that I am, I will still try to pretend I know fucking everything. Because I do. That's right, I fucking know everything!

Anyhow, here are three out of six tips when rolling a blood elf:

Tip 1: If you want to play a masculine Blood Elf, pick a female, they're more masculine than the males. If you like men who cares more about their hair than they care about their fucking revenge on Arthas, then a male Blood Elf is the right thing for you. Seriously, they should wear a fucking bikini under their armor.

"Hey sweetie!"

This is the reason I scrapped my hunter..

Besides, the female Blood Elf's boobs are slightly bigger.. Slightly.
Tip 2: Enjoy running from one fucking end of the Eversong Woods to the other. That zone is fucking big and I mean FUCKING big! Not only that, but the quests are scattered around the entire zone and there are like 3 small towns that hold a small bunch of quests each. This is freaking boring and makes you run more than in all other zones. At least in all other starting zones you only have one or two fucking town where all the quests are and not seven towns with a few quests as is the case here. It's alright to travel between smaller towns in higher level zones where you have a fucking mount but this is just ridicilous!

Tip 3: Don't name him "Legolas", "Légolas", "Légolazs", "LEGO" or anything else related to:
- Sephiroth
- Lord of the Rings
- DK
- The letters "x" and "z"
- Just fucking name him "Bob" or something already.
I fucking hate that it seems like people are only able to name Blood Elves something noobish. There are only two cases of extremely bad naming: The case of badly-named Blood Elves and the case of the badly-named Death Knights. Imagine a badly-named Blood Elf Death Knight. Well, 99,9 % of all Blood Elf Death Knights are badly-named, anyway.

Bad names fucking sucks. Put some effort in it for God's sake!

- Part 2 coming soon!

GearScore and why it's ruining the World (of Warcraft)

No blogpost yesterday - I was ill. Sorry for that.
Today I will discuss one of the biggest sources of QQ to date: Ladies and gentlemen, I bring you the bullshit that is GearScore!

Yes, I know the subject has been discussed to fucking death, but I want to discuss it while it is still relevant.

Whatever, asshole.

GearScore is great!
Yeah, I think GearScore is a great AddOn and a good idea that has been developed nicely. The AddOn and the system it provides gives a clear, objective score based on a player's gear and makes it easy to see if a certain player is geared enough for a specific place. But it ends here. A lot of people seems to regard this score as a score that rates the level of the player himself, contrary to what is said in the name of the AddOn. It does not rate the player but only rates - as the name of the AddOn suggests - the gear of the player. No achievements, damage meters, healing meter and overall experience and skill is taken into consideration. Only the gear. Not even the sources of gear are taken into consideration - for example the iLevel 245 headpiece from badges gives the same amount of score as a headpiece from ToC25, despite it being so much easier to get.

How many people regard this score as a picture of the skill and experience level of the player I do not understand. He may be geared for the instance but he may never have done it before and he may not have the best gear but he may have been through the place. Again, it does not include skill or achievements and therefore dumping a player based on what an AddOn says about his 'score' is stupid.

The other day, I was trying to find a PuG to do the Raid Weekly. I stumbled upon this paladin in general chat who wrote: "LFM Weekly Raid: Marrowgar, /w me gearscore". I wrote to him: "I can come, priest healer, but I have no idea what my gearscore is." He replied: "kk, np. You can come anyhow."

What the hell? You only want people with a certain gearscore to come, and when I tell you that I don't know what my gearscore is, then it fucking doesn't matter? Besides, you did not ask people to know tactics or show what they are able to perform. Some people just have skill and is able to pull way more DPS because they just play a certain way. Bring some of those, those people fucking rule!

My point is: GearScore is no proof for skill and no proof for experience. It can therefore not be used as a factor when picking raiders or people. And nor was it intended to do. It does not include the things that makes a good player good - achievements, experience, the sources of the gear etc. - but only takes into consideration the gear that the player is wearing. A factor that, by itself, cannot be used to determine whether or not people are good or not.

I have officially stopped blogging!

Hello to all of you!
Today, I have decided to stop my blogging experience and shut down the blog. This is due to e-mails I have received, telling me to stop being angry, stop raging, stop nagging and stop being me. That fucking sucks. I will change anything to satisfy some narrow-minded peoples' view - I'd rather shut it all down then, which I do now.

The blog will remain up for a couple of weeks before I take it down. I'm sorry it has to end like this but that's the way it is when narrow-minded people are bitten in the ass. Freedom of speech, people, freedom of fucking speech!

I've never had any idea how many people actually read this mess, but here it is then: It's shutting fucking down. To those of you who read: Thanks a lot! To those of you who didn't: Be glad you didn't. I tried to start a unique WoW-blog, putting the game and its players into another perspective than other blogs do. And what do I get? Naggings, hate-mails and a grand kick in the balls. Fuck you.

Again, thank for reading the blog, but I am so sorry that I have to do this. I might start another blog sometime - perhaps about Runescape, the MMO I have begun to play instead of WoW. I wasn't able to afford WoW in the long run and decided to quit alongside my blogging journey.


Fuck to all of you who send me hate mails like: "Stop playing if you do not like the game!" I like the fucking game, but there are things I do not like as well. It's part of fucking life. Perhaps you people should start concentrating on your lives instead of focusing on mine. I haven't quit WoW, and if I do so someday then I will NOT play Runescape. That I promise.

As a compensation for the cruel joke, here are a few words of apology from my dear friend "MechaMutantDeathRickAstleyPwn":

"Kiss my big fat mutant ass, you haters! Farinar doesn't care about what you think! Maybe you
should stop reading if you do not like what you read!"

Well said, MechaMutantDeathRickAstleyPwn! Except it wasn't much of an apology, but take it from me: M.M.D.R.A.P. is sorry on my behalf.

New post on Monday!
Happy 1st of April!

5 bosses I'd like to see pull a 'Kael'Thas'

Here is my top five lists of bosses I'd like to return from the dead the same way that Kel'Thuzad, Baron Rivendare, Anub'Arak and most of all Kael'Thas did. So let's get to it!

Number 1 - Jaraxxus
This guy is fucking awesome. He bursts in, kills a gnome and then proceeds to summon a shitload of demons in front of the audience of the Argent Tournament. He is one my favorite fights in the entire game and his voice sounds so fucking evil and yet so cliché at the same time. It's a great fight, a great boss and a nice guy who always reminds you who you're facing. That's right: "You face Jaraxxus!"

Number 2 - Malygos
I don't think Malygos as a raid encounter was well executed in the game. You met him once outside of the raid instance but many people still had no fucking idea who he was. And that's a shame when you're dealing with a dragon aspect. When I heard that Malygos was gonna be a raid encounter I figured he'd be inside the Nexus, guarded by a shitload of blue dragons. But no.

He was a fucking one-man raid encounter and his defense was so weak that everyone could just step inside his raid and face him. No need to kill a few guards or a few bosses before him. Just Malygos. That sucks. I think Malygos deserves more than just that - perhaps we could even be joined by Alexstrasza to kill him. All we got was a lousy, piss-easy vehicle fight.

Number 3 - Drakuru
Okay, this guy is a boss for a quest but still - he's fucking brilliant. He is a troll deathknight and maintains his troll accent even in undeath which is hilarious. That and he is complete and utterly evil! He works for the Lich King and tricks the player into helping him. He is a manipulative bastard with a cool accent. We players finished him off in Zul'Drak.

I have a dream that one day Drakuru will return as a raid boss in the yet-to-be-announced Gundrak raid. He could be resurrected by a bunch of necromancers or something, I don't care, I just wanna fight him again because he's so awesome!

Number 4 - Argent Confessor Paletress
Have you heard her? Have you seen her!? If you haven't seen her, take a look at this:

Imagine fighting a girl dressed like that and upon landing a strike on her, hearing her scream as if she has a fucking orgasm! That alone qualifies her for this list. More orgasm bosses, Blizzard, please!

Number 5 - Nefarian
Nefarian was a pretty unique fight because he called out for different classes which had unique downsides for each class. It was insanely fun and a great fight. Luckily he actually returns in Cataclysm, so I won't write much about him. All that's left to say is: Let the games begin!

Nefarian fucking rules.
