OLRG: Stinky Warrior Edition

“Precious Father, why have you given me this desire to wrestle, and then made me such a stinky warrior? Have I focused too much on my fame, and my boots and stretchy pants?”

Yes, all I could think about yesterday was how much Koanni has in common with Ignacio, or  his luchador name, Nacho. The lust for gear. Boots. Stretchy Pants. And Timeless Coins for a new pole arm. Fandral refuses to hand over his staff to Momokawa, but that didn’t stop us from having fun. Nope. Sorry, Fiery Chicken Butt Druid Dude, but we enjoyed ourselves nonetheless. Tome had to leave, and I’m sorry she missed Breige leading us through Naxx and finishing up 25-man “shocking” so I finally got my Glory of the Raider Edition:


What? No Pony?

All right, fine then. Pfft. I will take a page from Nacho and be happy in the glory and for the niños and stuff. Muchas gracias to Señor who helped me gather Timeless Coins –there is nothing like in-game practice to strengthen one’s skills at any class. Just gotta get in the ring and try.  And summon my eagle powers. He said, “Hit it first,” and I thought, “What do you think I am doing?”

I have no idea what I am doing, but I’ll do it with style. Till we meet again Old Ladies! Vaya con dios!

Tell you a secret: sometimes I post information on this blog so I can read it on my lunch break and not have to worry about any judgment of my Internet history – I mean, no one would understand that I’m researching Azerothian Warrior specs. Well, maybe one or two of my co-workers. Koanni understands though. As the article in Icy Veins says, and as was my suspicion, ‘fury warrior’ is relatively easy to understand, and difficult to master (much like being a hunter). So, that gives me confidence. I can do this! I love the idea of having two two-handed weapons, so I’m going to try my best at first Fury, and then Protection. It’s going to take a long time though. She needs coins for the weapons, and a few more lucky RNG blessings, but I’m willing to give it a go. According to Icy Veins, of course I picked the one that’s gear dependent most of all:

The Fury rotation is easy to understand and play at a reasonable level, but it is very difficult to master.The Fury specialisation performs poorly at low gear levels (due to its high reliance on Critical Strike and Mastery Rating), so it is below Arms in terms of damage until one reaches a much higher item level. There is no exact or rough breakpoint for when this happens, so we recommend that you use Simulationcraft to find out when one specialization surpasses the other.

Big thanks to PlaidElf last night for coming to my rescue and helping me get Lesser Charms. This is a very, very squishy warrior. Off to get a protein shake. Believe me –I wish I could stay home today and just goof around on this girl. Some characters just beckon us, you know? Sit tight, Koanni. I’ll be home soon.
