WoW Outage?

Quick update, can't loging, apparently Blizz is on it trying to fix whatever is broken.

It'll tweet whenever I hear something or reply here.


My Fan Club?

Well maybe not....but Thela over at MoMar, has decided to take up my 10 day challenge.

Please throw your support there!



If there is one favorite achievement (5 man or raid) you attained, what was it?

Naxx 10 Four Horsemen.  Why?  After the break!

Wednesday, September 12, 2012

If you farm instances for mounts/pets, which is your favorite?

I've been farming Setthek Halls for the last few weeks for the mount and it has not dropped at all.

Tuesday, September 11, 2012

What was your favorite drop ever from a boss?

Damn, I have had lots of drops over the years, but I think the best one ever was a mount...and not just any mount.

Leveling is waaaay too easy

In the last four days, I have leveled a toon from 77 to 80 and two to 81.

I like it and I don't...I know MoP is gonna be a bitch at the start and that's not even counting heroics.

I recall a friend tanking hero Deadmines...he said something like this "Trash are like bosses and bosses are like raid bosses".  I guess his pug had wiped five times even before the first boss.

I am playing heavily on my daughter's account, trying to get a few more toons to 85 for the Theramore scenario.  It's money in the bank if we can run it a few times...once we figure the damn thing out!

What was your first raid you entered?

Wow...this is way too long ago but I think the first raid I ever went to was Naxx 40.

Wednesday, September 5, 2012

What was the first 5 man dungeon you entered?

What was the first 5 man dungeon you entered?

Blackfathom Deeps, way back in Feb 2007. Sizzlelegs was level 25 or so and
a group of us were going to be run through this, though I have no freakin
idea why this one was chosen.

It's Over 60K!!!!

Ok, Lame post title, but I am pretty exited...

What naming theme if any do you use when you roll a new toon?

I don’t think I have ever used a naming convention, other than to have a little bit of fun (See my Rush post earlier this year!).

Monday, August 27, 2012

What was your first toon and why did you roll that particular class?

I've talked about this before, but might as well rehash a tad since it's been over a year since my last challenge I took part in.

10 Day Blog Challenge!

You guessed it!  A 10 day blogging challenge...I've got some of these written already, just need the time to sit down and post them!

See the list after the break!

Discussion Topic!

Patch 5.0 is a few days away and there are major changes to JP/VP and Honor/Conquest...

I am considering maxing JP to make gearing easier when MOP hits.  Granted its only the next highest tier of gear and it might only be 2-3 pieces, but do you think it is worth the effort?

Friday, August 24, 2012

Last one for the day

Unfortunately, I had to leave after this :(

Unfortunately, I had to leave after this...


Also known as Yet Another Achievement Post!

New achieves!

Well since I am starting over pretty much, after being at 9000+ achieve points, here's the latest from today!

Thursday, August 23, 2012


Back for a account...long story on what happened in April...needless to say I have an authenticator on both accounts and except in certain cases, I keep both with me. Rugrat can use hers if nephews are NOT visiting.

Up to 8 85s, one 82 and a lil hordie druid on the same server (Azgalor).

Thursday, March 29, 2012

Got my daggers!

My advice to you:

1.  Do this with a friend who has the same much easier! It took 3 tries for us to kill him until we figured out just one kites and the other attacks...rinse and repeat!

2. Fly in from SE bridge and stealth from there...easier as well.

3. Enjoy your Fear and Vengeance!

I'll probably never get the upgrades but I am quite happy with these....DPS jumped about 7k!

Made it to the boss...

Now lets see how hard Hiram Creed far Assassinate Creed is tough

Note - I flew in with glyph of safe fall and landed without dying

Throwing a big thanks out to Ordo Solaris, my guild for about the last year.

Though my work hours don't help with raiding, I was able to sneak home for early lunch, clear 4th boss trash and pick pocket Hagara.

Not sure what I am going to do to thank them but I'll probably clear out my flask collection so they can have more raid mats.

:)  Woot

Now waiting my 12 hours for ring to charge up :(

Vuhdo - Priest

A good friend uses the normal WoW interface to heal...I tried that years ago and could not do it.  I don't know how she does but so far I have seen no one die, unless it is in Arena.

I told her about Vuhdo and hopefully she'll see this and look into it.  I use it on my Druid, Priest, and Shaman to heal.  I never Shammy healed before until LFR and it's pretty easy (but remember it is LFR)...

Here's to you Thisisabell!

Onyxia 10 - Ordo Fun!

Well, was busy all through the morning but was able to hop on and help the guild out with a quick Ony 10 run.  We already had the guild achieve but a few people wanted the Many Whelps! Handle It! achieve...

Three tanks, 2 heals, five deeps!

I think we pulled about 100 whelps in the ensuing chaos.  Both tanks ran deep into the cave after Onyxia lifted off and it was plain nuts.  I just upgraded to 8 GB issues for me!  One person D/C'ed from the aggro fest!

SCREENIES FOR YOUR PLEASURE! (I forgot to screenshot until halfway through...)

New Shield!

Picked this up last night while working on Consortium Rep.

It's called the Fel Barrier and it drops from Heroic Mana Tombs.

Apparently it is a 15% drop from Nexus-Prince Shaffar.

Not using it right now, it is in Void Storage but the look is pretty cool.

The joys of a new guild...

Always happy to help, I am now helping a good friend level his guild.  I'm using my mage to do this and have started finishing all Cataclysm quests to start.  While that will more than likely help me more, it will still help the guild.

What helps the most is guild runs!  I don't think we'll get any raids done.

I did notice we got 3% of our next level from a guild run of Well of Eternity!

Good peeps here in Ocean's View!  Was almost to exalted with Ordo but oh well...

MOP Beta starts to open

Wowhead News has it all!

Quick quotes:

"We’re inviting Annual Pass holders in waves over the course of the beta test, and will be ramping up the number of invites we send as quickly as possible. We’ll be inviting Annual Pass holders based on several factors, including how long your World of Warcraft account has been active and when you signed up for the Annual Pass. Keep an eye on your account and email for your invite to join the beta test."

I've been playing since 2006...I should have one soon as I signed up for the Annual Pass!

ITS OVER 9000!!!!

Well, had an epic weekend!  The people were on that I needed and they were cheevo-hungry as well. I was able to bust out a few achieves here and there across Azeroth and it seems like it all came through.  I'll start piece by piece and go through exactly what I did:

 Started at 8860 after a few rounds of PVP.  Traded a few HKs with a horde friend for City Defender.  Though its not listed, I also got Wrath of the Alliance as well thanks to him.  Separate post on that one coming! (And next big project is Wintergrasp Ranger)

 Since we had Wintergrasp, I gathered the few forces we had and did a quick run through.  Easy stuff, no one died (I think...).  33g each for each boss along with shards to disenchant.  I never got these achieves back in the day because "they are too easy, only got time for one" or some other stupid excuse.

 Correction!  I died in VOA because healer was on phone

Next came a quick Naxx 4 for most of the easy bosses.

Also listed is Less is More.  Had to convince a few guildies that no mount was worth 10 achievement points!
The Hundred Club, was to easy, even at level 80.

Finally Kel'Thuzad died, but had to bring in some hired guns to help.  It allowed us to get Just Can Get Enough as well.

Last acheive I needed came into place when I did a simple fishing quest!  All too easy!
Icing on the cake here, went and bought a mount to celebrate!

Now to get 10K...

Day 20 – If this was your last day playing WoW, what would you do?


I'd raid everything I could, 10 mans, 25 mans, 40's, panties, you name it.

So many achieves I need, I'd try to get them all in one day.  Funny thing, if there were others, I am sure they would join me.

For what its worth, Full House (ICC 10/25) is a tough one...still ain't got that, even at level 85.  Don't think I will ever get it less we go 3 tank, 3 heals, 4 DPS.

Saturday, March 17, 2012

Day 19 – In your bags/bank

My bags? My bank?  A mess!

I'll usually wake up early one day a week (430 am) and decide its bag and bag day.  While I can only get 2-3 toons done in this time, it really helps.

Thank God for specialized gem and enchanting bags!  My shammy would be lost with out it.  My lock still has 16 slot bags in her bank, so I need to fix that as well.  Next expansion I think we will see up to 30 slot bags perhaps, but I am thinking that will still not be enough for some people.

Will it be for you?

Note - added screenie of my shammy's bags.  This was AFTER 45 mins of cleanup.

Day 18 – Your favorite outfit

Favorite outfit (and the subject of a potential sub post) is called the Imperial Plate set.  Any human plate wearer looks good in it. 

 I have not tried it with a dwarf, night elf, or draenei yet, but since humans in Stormwind are the only ones who wear plate of this kind, it would look absurd.

This is the Black Mageweave set for clothies.  Makes humans look oh so delicious!  I just wish I could make a set for my wife…then I would have to convince her to wear it.  This set would look good on night elves or draenei as well…not so good on gnomes.  Something about gnomes and bikinis does not sit well... with me.

Day 17 – Your favorite spot (in game or outside it)

Lately I am spending a lot of time either farming Whiptail in Uldum.  Sucks, but I need the gold to buy mounts.  Two hours a day gets me about 40 stacks.  Since I live in South Korea, prime time for me is off time for everyone else.  There are usually 3-4 others at the most farming against me, and I figure the same number of horde as well.  Furthermore, I figure 75% of those are farming ore, not herbs.

I am also spending a lot of time in BGs just to get HKs.  If I can convince the group I am in to pull a turtle, I can get 200-250 HKs.  It wastes 30-45 mins of my time (like the AVs of old) but it is so much fun.  Even if we lose, I still enjoy the hell out of it.  Prime BGs for these are IOC and AV.

I want to get another mammoth mount and a Darkmoon card (Hurricane) for my lock.  I cannot figure out Destruction DPS for raid finder.  While I can hit 12k in LFG, I suffer in LFR and dip to 10-11 and usually get kicked.

I have the money for this, but I want to maintain about a 30k balance.

Day 16 – Things you miss (post Cataclysm)

There are so many things in WoW that it is hard to say what I miss, as there is always something to do.

I miss old ZA and ZG.  The old 60 raids should have been kept with a heroic option.  I hate myself for not getting exalted with the ZG rep before the change.  It was so easy to grind the rep, I was busy screwing off doing other things.  They kept SFK and Deadmines, how hard would have been to keep those two as 10 mans?

I also miss old Onyxia…speaking of which I think there are a few achieves I need from there this week!

I don’t miss the old style BC heroics, those were absolutely tough.  Gearing up back then was an arduous process, something that took me forever on Sizz (and Gankalicious).  Those were the only two 70s I had at the time.

I don't miss the pre LFG days either.  It was a pain in the ass to get a group.  If you were not in a decent guild, you were stuck grinding or questing.  That meant a few hours in Desolace killing mobs over and over...

Monday, March 12, 2012

Day 15 – Your desktop background (on your computer) and why you chose it

My current desktop is of me, my daughter, and a friend all on our hunters.  Each of us has Mazzranache, a Mulgore Hatchling, and the Swift Lovebird mount.  While just one of us riding around makes head turns and gets comments, all three of us look absolutely silly together.  I am glad I took the time for this during the lunar festival.
I only wish I could have farmed more than 4 mounts (I gave one to Sheelar as a gift and one to my daughter).

Getting nine birds to go exactly where you want them ain't easy, but here ya go!

Sunday, March 11, 2012


Getting there slowly.  It's a pain to do these old quests but it brings back some memories.

The Duskwood ones were particularly memorable as I was leveling my lock when Kara first opened.  So many horde came through to rape Darkshire...sad times really.

260 points to go!

Day 14 – This upsets you

Trolls…unfortunately I fall prey to them, but alas! I have found a workaround to this.  While trolls lay bait for other people to bite on, I lay counter-bait instead.

You’ll have the standard jackwads in BGs or LFR who spam profanity, racial epithets, etc and are just trying to provoke a reaction.  There is an easy way to fix it!  Simply send them a PM asking them to not use whatever led you to PM them in the first place.  Technically, this is the first step one should always take when dealing with a spammer, troll, jackwad, or whatever.  Start at the root of the problem and work your way up.  If you have ever been in the military, think of it as the Chain of Command.  On server, I’ve PM’ed guildmasters or sent them an in game mail.  This does not always work though as the toon in question might the guildmaster’s alt, FWB, or dealer.  While you can do a ticket in game, it’s best to do one through  It allows 2000 characters and screenshots.  While screenshots can be faked, it does give GMs some reference and solid evidence to prove what happened did.

I’m gonna have to find a screenshot or two of this in action…guess that means as I write this at work, I am planning to do some BGs tonight…it’s Battle of Gilneas weekend I think.  Combined with homework and daughter’s science fair project, playtime is not looking good.

Sorry, no luck finding a screenshot of trolls, they are most likely backed up on a DVD somewhere.

I'll keep my eyes open!

Friday, March 9, 2012

Day 13 – People (players/bloggers) that you admire

Wow…this is going to be fun, so long as I can have some fun!

I truly admire a small group of players on my server who I have formed a close knit relationship over the last few years.  I was in a raiding guild called Primus Pilus back in 2008-2009 and got some good stuff done in TOC 10/25 and a little bit in ICC.  We slso downed Onyxia multiple times as a guild.  Our standard operation was TOC 25, then split for TOC 10.  If everything went smooth, which it usually did, we’d hit Ony 25/10 with the same pattern.

For Cataclysm, I joined Ordo Solaris, a social raiding guild. I’ve dabbled in Bastion of Twilight, Throne of the Four Winds, and Firelands.  I’d say I have done Dragon Soul but LFR does not count!

The list of players is as follows:

Sheelar – Damn good pally healer
Șnic РGreat warrior tank (also has pally tank, just as good)
Straycat – Druid healer
Hydi – Druid healer during TOC 10/25 days
Chewbarka  - Druid tank in TOC/ICC, inactive now
Teetsman – Shammy healer in TOC/ICC, inactive now
Demolish – Enhancement shammy on Gilneas
Merrilik – Warlock on Gilneas

Demolish and Merrilik were the two goobers who got me addicted to WoW in the first place.  I saved them for last.

Bloggers I admire?  I’ve only been doing this a short time but I have to give a shout out to Red Cow.  Thanks Doll for getting me started and keeping me started!

Day 12 – A usual day in your life/online time

A day in the life of Sizz?  How boring this must be, at least from my perspective.  I’ve been in the Air Force for 23 years.  Currently as I am writing this, I am sitting in a basement somewhere in South Korea.  It is day four of a two week exercise called Key Resolve.  It is a computer simulated exercise designed to test our responses to hypothetical North Korea hostility.  North Korea hates these exercises with a passion.  Some of the saber rattling by North Korea is as follows:

“The war drills are an unpardonable infringement upon the sovereignty and dignity of the DPRK as they evidently target the DPRK, which is in the mourning period”

Last Saturday, Pyongyang had vowed to launch a “sacred war” against South Korea and the U.S.

Kim, the North's leader, has instructed the military to "make a powerful retaliatory strike" at South Korea if Seoul intrudes even slightly into the North's waters.

“Land a strong retaliatory strike on the heads of the foes if the enemy encroaches on the country’s seas where our autonomy applies by so much as 0.001 millimeter,” Kim was quoted as saying by Pyongyang’s state media Korean Central News Agency.

“(North Korea) will enter a holy war to bury the traitors, and domestic and foreign warmongers,” the commission said in a statement.

“Nuclear weapons are not exclusive to the U.S. We have means of war that are more powerful than the U.S.’ nuclear weapons and cutting-edge strike equipment no one else has.”
"The U.S. is sadly mistaken if it thinks it is safe as its mainland is far away across the ocean. There is no limit to the striking intensity and range of our army and people to wipe out the aggressors," the statement said.
"We will deliver a devastating punishment to the traitors, whose strength cannot compare to the sea of fire seen in the Yeonpyeong attack."
South Korean officials "will never be forgiven. You will not be able to escape our blows just because you are in Seoul and hiding behind the back of the U.S. imperialists. We are right in front of you and our bayonets are already aimed at your throats."
It denounced the annual joint exercises as a "silent declaration of war," describing them as "unpardonable war hysteria."
I read things like this each day and I think of a monkey in its cage that wants attention, so it bangs the bars of its cage until it gets what it wants. (repeat in 3-4 months)

Anyway, typical day is PT from 530-645, work from 730-ish to Noon, about an hour for lunch with the wife, and back to the grind until about 430 or so.  End time depends on what is going on, whether A/C is broken (record office temperature was 91.2F), or if our bosses left early as well.

In WoW, I’ll generally have a plan for the week on what I want to do.  Last week I wanted to hit 10k HKs on Sizz. I needed just over 600 to get it.  This goes in line with hitting 9k achieve points on Sizz as well.  I can do it, I just need to start working on Loremaster and that would close it out definitely.

Usually my day is at least one BG and one random dungeon; though I think tonight will be LFR on my Rogue.  Tomorrow (as of writing this) is Friday, so I can skimp on sleep just a little.  Since this and next week are 5am to 5pm (meaning I get off at 6-6:30), I am beat when I get home.   Tonight will be a good night as I have bribed the Drop Fairy to get me a new off hand!

What a rush!

I love the band Rush.  I've been a fan of them since about 1985 but first heard their tunes on the radio.  While some bands got lucky with a popular tune or sold out to what was popular, Rush toured.

And toured.

And toured more.

They built a fan base.  They felt they would only do in studio what they could do live.

No cheating.

This is my homage to Rush:

Water Glitch?

Kinda cool...seen it on two toons so it is not just Sizz...anyone else seen it?

Monday, March 5, 2012

Day 11 – Bad habits and flaws

I’m not perfect…I don’t think anyone is.  I’m guilty of being distracted at times as a healer and getting a player or two killed.  With the ease of LFR, even my crap geared elemental shammy has healed with way through with 11k heals (yes I am a baddie). 

Also, see bating in a previous post (Day 8 #8).  While it might not be a bad habit, some players make it too easy to report them.  While I could sit back and click report player, I’m willing to take the time to screen shot it, open up, and complete a real ticket and upload the screen.

Lastly, I am also guilty of using PVP gear to inflate my gear level to get into raid finder.  

Should I change the name of my blog to Baddie McBad’s Tale of Fail?

ps almost made a personal guild that was named "fails at failing"

Day 10 – Blog/Website favorites

I love to read Red Cow Rise and Twisted Nether.  Problem is most fun sites are blocked from work.  I’m actually typing this at work and will upload once I get home!  Most government entities are run by the Fun Police and block out any website remotely related to fun.

I also check wowheadnews and wow insider (aka as well each day.  Usually I log in, say hi to guild, and read for 10 mins or so.  That’s the best time to queue for Dragon Soul LFL (looking for loot).

I am still new to the blogscape and have not made many contacts.  If you know of a good read, please link one below!

Bought me a mammoth!

Don't think there was a better way to use it!

Random stuff...

Well, working hard all this week, but we convinced the boss we need to work 10 hours a day instead of 12.  With that in mind, I'm got myself up to 8670 Achievement points!

More next weekend!

Day 09 – Your first blog post

This was my first post ever.

Exciting eh?

Not even a screenshot.

Six of Six Part II

So, Nevernude of Nevernude's Blog tagged me for the Six of Six! (2nd time lol).  I've got more screenies and pics so this should be a little more fun!  Posted two since I sorted by date and by name...makes it a little more interesting!

 This one came from a few days ago.  My daughter needed Mazz to complete her set, Pink Lovebird, Mulgore Hatchling, and now Mazz.  Looks great when you have all 3!
This one was from Naxx 25 achieve run.  I used critter bites to make Mr Bigglesworth my pet.

Tagging back Akabeko  from Red Cow Rise on this!

Also tagged are:

The Ready Check
The Bossy Pally and the Spoon
She Can't DPS
Tree Druid
Officer Chat

Hope to see you post!

Once in a while, alliance win at BGs

And every great once in a while, horde completely suck...

 299 kills might be the most ever I have received in one BG.

Also got my 10,000 kill on the previous BG as well! (we lost this one pretty bad)
I got this one too, that brings me to 8640 achievement points!

Day 08 – 10 things we don’t know about you

Wow, then things you don’t know about me…this is gonna be fun!  I am going to try to concentrate on in game stuff.

1.       I did not spec any toon as a healer until the middle of 2009.  Primus Pilus, my guild at the time, needed a druid healer and I was the only one with a level 80 druid.  Needless to say, it took about a week to get decently geared to where I could handle heroics.  From there, it was ICC all the way.
2.       I once had two shaman on Azgalor, first being Hooahmiester, and the second being Shamaneggs.  I had both to level 40 before I realized having two was kinda useless.  I had Hooah’s enchanting to 225 and nothing done on Eggs.  Although I liked the name Shamaneggs better (plus it was a drooltastic Draenai female), Hooah had more work put in and was not deleted.
3.       I have never seriously played a horde toon, other than a DK I rolled on Akabeko’s server.  I have a Tauren DK named Inthemood, a take on Cow/Moo and a favorite song by Rush.
4.       I have never, ever, botted or bought gold.
5.       In addition to reporting botters (mining/herbing), I actively camp them for free honor (while a ticket is sent in).
6.       I have two guild banks on my second account, down from four I had at one time.  The Echo, Death by Alliance, Likes to Gank Lowbies, and damn…I cannot remember the fourth one.  I still have Echo and Death, each with 4 tabs.  I only let Real Friends in so they can use it for personal storage.
7.       I’ve never server transferred, free or paid.  I have seriously considered it at times.  If Blizzard ever offers transfers off Azgalor PVP to a PVE server, I might be gone for good.
8.       I will occasionally bait players into breaking the TOS.  Perfect example is where some jackass is taking trash in trade/raid/party, I will politely ask them to refrain from using profanity.  Remember, the key word is polite.  Once they reply back directly to you with something like” %$#! *&@# *&@$” they are done.  Sometimes it is too easy! 
9.       I occasionally play the Auction House to make money.  While I could do dailies, I get burned out after 3-4 days of this.  With 10 85s, it gets old pretty quick.  I also get burned out after 3-4 days of doing nothing but playing the Auction House.
10.     I am looking forward to the pet battles portion of Mop!

Day 07 – The reason behind your blog’s name

In October 2006, I arrived in Hawaii after leaving Texas.  While in Texas, our team ran for PT most days.  This was on the average 4-6 miles, 3-4 times a week.  I was a sleek, sexy, 204 lbs (in my own mind).

In Hawaii, I think it was my 3rd day of work, we had mandatory PT with the commander, because a fellow flight member failed to show for her mandatory PT.  Don’t you  love the punish everyone when one person screws up?  I f’ing hate it.

Back to the nickname lol.  After stretching, our commander, Lt Col Flutterkicks, ran us around the ¼ mile track.  After 2 miles, most of the kids began to bitch about it.  Me?  I kept running and encouraging them to “KEEP RUNNING”.  Somewhere after 3-4 miles, we stopped, cooled down, and someone said my legs were sizzling out there.  This was of course, about 2 months before a few idiots on my flight told me to try WoW.

After trying it, and naming my first toon Sizzlelegs, I figured why not call it, “Sizzle’s Legs”?  While I can’t run like I used to (back/hip problems), I can still do 3-4 miles at a slog pace (also called the Freight Train of Death pace).

There ya have it, the story of Sizz.  More tomorrow, as you hear 10 things you don’t know about me.

Day 06 – Your workplace/desk (photo and/or description)

Got this desk while in Hawaii…I think it was May 2009 or so. It is nowhere big enough for me to work with, but it will do for now. I’ve got my computer and my wife’s as well.

Only real bad thing is the way the house is wired for internet. Koreans love wireless…I HATE IT. I wanted to get a 2nd outlet hooked up and stick her computer down the hall but I was informed it would be another $50 a month because it is a separate connection. I was like WTF!?!?!?!?!?!

So I managed to acquire a wireless card for free about two weeks later. Someone was tossing an old computer out and I happened to find it first. Lucky me it had a wireless card!

I play in what I call “Pirate Mode” a lot. My bird, Conner, who is a Sun Conure, would rather sit and hang out on my shoulder than his cage. I don’t blame him. While sitting on my shoulder, my body becomes a playground for him.

He’ll put holes in my shirt, pull neck hairs (ouch!), break a gold necklace ($20 to fix), and crap in random directions. I’m over it, trust me. He’s like a 3 year old mentally, but on the same token, he’s pretty smart for having a bird brain.
