Seri sez: Introduction 1.5

September 4, 2008

Hi there! I’m Seri and I’m not sure how to introduce myself since Jov gave you most of the relevant details in her own introduction. In the interest of redundancy and redundancy, I’ll recap:

My name is Seri and, like Jov, I herald from a T6 Horde guild (5/5 & 9/9) on a middling-progressed RP-PVE server. I represent the lesser half of this blogging team, but would like it known that I still wear the pants in this family. That is to say that, even though Jov has been playing a priest way longer than I have, I’m still her Class Lead and therefore must be obeyed. (Hey, we all have our delusions.)

Anyway, Jov and I are passionate about Priesting and decided to start this blog as an outlet for our nerd rage. Far too often we come across examples of folks that just don’t seem to know how to spec/gear for their class or don’t care enough to do it properly, and have wanted to make our opinions heard loudly and clearly.

However, upon reflection we realized that our Priest snark (while virtually limitless in its bounty and usually reasonably entertaining) isn’t terribly well-rounded and might turn us into (even more) bitter and cynical bitches if we indulge in it exclusively. Therefore, you can look forward to a future rife with Priest-centric posts on a variety of topics including but not limited to gearing, talent specs, upcoming changes, raiding and general snark.

So, pull up a chair and get ready for a dose of Truth. It may be a bitter pill to swallow, and we won’t sugar-coat it, but we’ll at least give you a glass of water. We’re not totally heartless.


Jov sez: Introduction

September 4, 2008

Hi, my name is Jov.  I’m 1/2 of this blog.  Seri and I both come from a middling-progressed RP-PVE server where we make our home in a guild straddling the T6 line.  (We’ve got Hyjal dropped from the roster, have Illidan on farm, but haven’t quite gotten Kalecgos down.)  I say middling-progressed because we’re the 3rd ranked Horde guild on the server, and the furthest any guild has cleared is Eredar Twins.

I’m also an armory-stalker, and overly opinionated when it comes to Priest spec and gearing.  (I can only sigh at Seri’s point in Holy Glitter.  She’s my class lead.  But do you hear that, Seri?  I’m sighing at you RIGHT NOW.)

This blog was mainly formed over long emails back and forth bemoaning the fact that some priests manage to make it to T6 without learning simple facts about their class, or even what some talent points mean.

  • Doing your only class research on the official class forum.  BAD.
  • Thinking Elitist Jerks is a band.  BAD.
  • Not following patch notes and noting that in 2.4, spirit became king and you should get rid of all those nasty, dirty mp5 gems and enchants.  BAD.

We here at World of Snarkcraft believe that these people should be shown the error of their ways, with beatings if necessary.
