Instant Spell Shenanigans

Introducing: Squirrel

This dashing 68 paladin, Squirrel is my current main.


She was created by my brother in a misguided attempt of mine to get him to join me in WoW. After discovering the hidden Tankadin community over at MainTankadin, I’ve grown pretty Fascinated with AoE tanking and the reactive tanking mechanics of a Tankadin. I Spec’d Jils Prot right when I started her, she was level 47 at the time. I’ve gotten her to 68 pretty quickly and it feels like I’ve rediscoved what I loved about WoW when I started playing .I’ll hopefully hit 70 by this weekend and start instancing heroics for the gear I need.

The folks over at Maintankadin have a great quick and dirty list to getting uncrushable. The guide I’m referring to is Eanin’s Failsafe Uncrushability Guide. Another Great list gear wise is MT gear progression and if you’d like to review the whole reason behind the gearing all the math and descriptions are here in Pre-raid Tanking: Theories, Goals and the Gear to Get There .

I Burned Out


I’d been raiding for 25 hours a week, working 50 hours a week, farming 5 hours a week so that I can raid and sleeping with the rest of the time. My main was a 70 Shadow Priest, and together him and I have downed everything but Illidan, and the guild I was in was attempting him. The real problem then was I flat out burned out, and in my frustration I gquitted and left the game completely.

It’s been a couple of weeks and I’ve rested and now I’m back. The catalyst of my renewed interest is mostly due to the  interesting blogging community that seems to have sprung up around WoW.  Currently I’ll be playing a paladin that my brother left to obscurity over my mothballed priest and trying to get my wow groove back. This blog is an attempt at to join with the wow blogging community that I enjoy reading so much, and to figure out why I loved this damn game so much in the first place.
