Blizzard Authenticator

A few weeks ago I had written about my WOW account getting hacked again. So enough was enough, even the wife was pissed that I had to spend so much time trying to retrieve my account. I had to prove that it belongs to me by waiting on the phone with Blizzard to talk to [...]

WoW account Hacked Again?!?

A friend of mine called me on the weekend to see if I had reactivated my WoW subscription, apparently one of my toons was online since the day before. I was like, no, definitely not me! I had canceled the account a few months ago when I got bored of playing again, so there’s not [...]

No Leveling Lately

Since hitting 80 & 74 with my 2 main toons I haven’t done much except the cooking dailies and a little bit of instance running. Play time is shorter than usual these days since I’ve been so busy with work. Things have been going ok since getting hacked so I decided to go grab a [...]

Ding 80 & Ding 74

After being 79 for a while now I decided it was finally time to get that milestone out of the way so I finished it off and dinged to 80. Trained my new abilities and then switched over to the priest to do the cooking daily and finish off 73. I was looking through my [...]

Holy Respec

The other day our main tank was getting a little bitchy about shadow priests and healers in general so I decided to respec holy and give it a try. My priest is only 73 though and I wasn’t planning to respec until I had gotten to 80 since I like soloing as shadow, stuff dies [...]

Ding 78, Higher Levels go Faster!

The exp bar seemed to crawl along slowly when I was in the low 70′s, but the closer I get to 80 the faster it seems to move. I did all of level 76 in about 12 hours (spread out over a few days of course) and finally put my mind to getting the epic [...]

Love is in the Air

It’s that time of year again in Azeroth, the Valentine’s day celebrations where the main ‘old school’ cities get overrun by hundreds of adventurers looking for favors from the NPC lads and lassies. There’s a bit of running around involved when doing the quests, but when yer all done there’s some nice ‘fluff’ rewards to [...]

I Got Hacked! The Finale (I hope)

Yesterday I received another email from Blizzard informing me that their investigation was complete, it included a list of the remaining items that were being returned to me. As far as I can tell, I got back everything that was stolen! In less than a week too! Overall I’m happy with the results but it [...]

I got Hacked! Pt. 2

In my last post I talked about what happened when I got hacked last week, now I wanted to mention how I think it happened in the first place. I don’t run a lot of addons and I rarely download stuff or click ads on websites. The only 2 addons I had installed are Titan [...]

I got Hacked!

I really don’t know how it happened. I was playing as usual Thursday night last week and went to bed around 2am. The next morning when I got up and checked my email there was a message from Blizz informing me that I had changed my password, which I hadn’t done! So I tried to [...]

WoW Built-in Voice Chat

So recently I’ve been grouping up with some local friends of mine every so often and they’ve decided they don’t like typing. I think it’s great that WoW has a built in voice client, it’s so much easier for the average user. No more setting up Vent or TeamSpeak servers and clients and having to [...]

Blizzard is Picky with Names.

I figured it would happen sooner or later, Blizzard finally decided that Steenkinpoo wasn’t an appropriate name. It’s happened before, a couple of years ago when I made my gnome rogue I decided he wasn’t going to wear clothes, so Gnekkidgnome seemed like a good name to me. That last til around level 25 or [...]

Ding 70 Death Knight

Last night I made it to level 70. I had heard that you can start questing in Northrend at 68 so off I sailed to the Borean Tundra. Leveling was going pretty quick in Outland, but in Northrend those 2 levels just flew by and I got some great gear upgrades along the way, increasing [...]

Lots of Stuff to do in WoW

Since starting up WoW again I’ve been spending a lot of time on the Death Knight and working on my engineering/enchanting on Kalamaf. Both of those are going pretty slowly actually, but Herbalism/Inscription on the DK is going quite quickly, some glyphs sell for decent coin while others aren’t worth the paper they’re written on [...]
