Dress Up – Hero AND Vanilla!

I want to get all my unfinished blogging challenges done for a fresh start in the New Year, so here are the last two from @GPBatinna’s Dress Up challenge:



We have actually blogged this before and Mr B actually worn it! I hope you’re proud ^^ This is Mr B’s DK in his Ironman mog. Click here for the items and descriptions.

I had to check exactly what this meant, and the idea is the original Warcraft game, not the colour. Hmmm… /ponders. I have decided to do the last raiding tier of Vanilla, which is Naxxramas. I also really like this raid (and the mogs!) and I even have the weapon I’m using here (even though I’ve never mogged it as nothing really does it justice).

All items are the Frostfire set from Naxx (head, shoulders, robe, gloves, feet and waist).

The weapon is Charmed Cierge which drops from Naxx 10N.

I’ve really enjoyed this challenge from Batinna. I’ve especially enjoyed the farmer and princess challenges, although I know Mr B enjoyed the hero and knight ones! Thanks @GPBatinna!



Alt Appreciation – Death Knight Week

Laeleiweyn has proposed an EXCELLENT idea of celebrating all that is alts by introducing a celebration of the different classes in WoW. Yes I know I used celebration twice in that sentence (eeek, literary meltdown!) but there is no other way to describe this CELEBRATION!!

Class Week

Now, you know us… we have LOTS of alts and all of the classes between us, so this will be fun!!

Let’s start with the Death Knight then shall we? Mrs B doesn’t have one (I tried and really didn’t like it!) but Mr B’s DK is close to his heart:

I’ve been playing this DK for nearly 2 years and he was the first DK I levelled to end-game. I really don’t like the DPS specs on the Death Knight class – personal taste – but as a tank? I’m in love. I really enjoy how versatile it is – self heals, damage mitigation and the ‘hero’ feel of this class. I solo warbringers really easily and never worry about healers keeping me up in instances. My favourite thing ever? Being able to summon your own minion army every ten minutes!!! I’ve tried other tanking classes (most recently a warrior), but I always end up swapping to DPS as it’s just not as awesome as the DK 🙂

It’s only unfortunate that I detest tanking LFR, so I’ve only geared him to 508 with the help of loot specialisation (which is awesome by the way!). He kind of just sits around, mining occasionally, but not doing much…. He defintely needs a flex raiding team!
