Central time with seconds
My key upgraded to Mythic 5 Upper Karazhan… which made me immediately think… “why the fuck is this a mythic dungeon?”. However we managed to largely steamroll the entire dungeon other than the final boss who is just an asshole. Thankfully in spite of my death we moved forward and the remaining folks managed to get the kill moving us forward again. I remember Karazhan being a boar to get through when we were trying to run it to get to the bonus boss… but now it seems like it is probably a completely reasonable thing to do in a timely manner. I think the fact that everyone has Concordance now… pushes up the gear levels to the point where you can just take a lot of abuse making all of the mechanics easier. … [Read more...] about Nonsense Managed
This seems to continue every morning until 6:30-6:45 central time, and then magically goes away. I have never had this issue at any other point in the day. I have done some searching on the forums and have yet to find a definitive explanation. If anyone knows what exactly is happening here I would love to know. Do we have just a ton of non-US primetime players out there that are busying out the login server? Is this just a case of everyone waking up at the same time? I am super curious what is causing the phenomena. If I ever find an answer I will post it. … [Read more...] about Hot Tub Party
Right now my goal is to hit level 12, which will give me access to a few really nice cross class abilities. First we have Featherfoot, which increases evasion by 25% for 15 seconds. Next we have Second Wind, that is a variable heal that builds off attack power. Lastly we have Internal Release, which increases Critical Rate by 30% for 15 seconds. I have heard that the Marauder ability Berserk which increases attack power by 50%, will greatly buff Second Wind. While Berserk keeps you from using special attacks for 30 seconds after its duration… it could be a handy combo in a clutch situation where you are tanking and need a large heal NOW. … [Read more...] about Pugilism
Slowpoke Sloth: -40% speed. Original and an instant classic. Wonky the Donkey: You’re carrying the mount and you still get the +40% speed boost? Genius! Thanks, Malistaire! Maximum Horsepower: Run-ny, funny, and punny. Mighty Steed: I’ve never seen Monty Python in full, but I can appreciate a good reference when I see one. Ball-N-Chain: Solid, but it reminded me of the sloth mount. Coolest Mount Ever: Pretty cool. Rubber Ducky: Super cute, but I feel like this could’ve been released anytime. It didn’t scream April Fool’s to me, but maybe I’m alone in that. Personally, I’d love to see an April Fool’s Day mount that forces our character to either run backwards or ride the mount backwards. I’d also enjoy a Mermaid Man and Barnacle Boy style invisible boat mobile type mount where our characters can be seen just floating through the air. One can dream! … [Read more...] about Wizard101: Ride Like the Wind, Horse-guy!
