Mike’s Quest For Power; Frozen Ascendancy #2

So yeah. This marks my second week as a Warhammer Guild Leader, and holy hell it’s actually challenging and fun. You have to organize things and arrange things. It’s really different to over on WoW, when all the guild leader did was swear at people and say “We’re raiding today”. I have to actually do things, and that’s taking a bit to get into.

Ascendancy this week; continued to kick ass in Tier 1 and 2, with a few players moving into Tier 3. We dinged GR6 and I’m just waiting to run into the two guild leaders I need to talk to to get the Alliance up. Still considering names but I like “The Coming Curse”. It is an awesome song and reference to the fact we’re mostly Tier One and Two, with a pinch of Tier 3.

It also seems that Tier 1 / Tier 2 flavour of the month is Warrior-Priest and Knight of the Blazing Sun, as far as Order on Dark Crag goes. Which is why I am a very happy White Lion. Except for that the Lionheart tactic doesn’t work. Thricebecursed Mythic!

My (very badass) friend, Vaninda the Warlock from WoW, has started playing WAR, so yeah. The awesomeness of our player base has gone up by a fistful of ass-whoopin’.

Apologies for my inactivity lately. I have a new laptop that needs a serious spanking. And not in the good jiggly way.

And now I must leave, for there are people in need and maidens fair to be rescued! Away!

WCPI – And a list of fun links

So, I’ve decided to WCPI Lagwar this week, as they’ve been around for a long time in the WAR Community. And y’know ? Podcasts R FUN ! Seriously though, if you’ve never heard of Lagwar, you better check it out now, great quality shit in there peeps ! Also, they regularly do contests and give out codes for in-game items, so be sure to check the site out often to have a chance of acquiring one of those if you’ve missed Games Day Baltimore, for example.

Yay fer Short WCPIs, sorry Slurms and Ziss, but I know you love me.

Anywho, I forced my co-writer Mike to quote Samuel L Motherfucking Jackson today through his mic, and saved I could share it to the world ^^ (And aye, it’s really him) :

Hurray ! (Click the little “Download” link under “Filename”, not “Download Now”)

He also loves Pulp Bard, a Pulp Fiction script in Elizabethian, yeah you read that right.

In other news, I HIGHLY recommend reading the Abridged Scripts from The Editing Room, because they are HILARIOUS.

And that is it, although I have an idea behind my mind, which I will unveil in my next post.

Beware ! Goblin Guide

If you’re into powerleveling, PDF/in-game guides for WAR etc. You’ve probably heard of Goblin Guide, it’s supposed to be the best on the market, and the reviews you can find around the intrawebz are good. Well, I’ve come to buy it , and I am TRULY disapointed.

The levelling guides are useless and outdated. And there’s been no updates for over a month. The Misc. Guides are just plain low quality. The “Gold Guide” is very short and not worth it at all. And, the RvR guides are also very low in content. Also, the “Video Guides” are just videos you can easily find on youtube.

Apparently, there’s a 60-day guarantee, but I’ll still save my account and tell you guys if there ever is an update. I’m sure it was a great guide pre-1.2, but now it’s just useless. So yeah, if you’ve ever thought of spending 37$ for this guide, don’t. Or at least not right now, as it will be a true waste of money.

-Eat your veggies, Meteorfall.

From the Flames, as Chance Would Have It

There would rise those with hearts forged from ice. Ladies, gentlemen. Brothers and sisters of the Order of Dark Crag, the Frozen Ascendancy has risen again!  The Frozen Ascendancy was the guild I ran back on the Game That Must Not Be Named, with an evolution of four years and a bloodied road of gold. Eventually we rerolled the guild to “Frozen Supremacy”, once we’d done everything you possibly could in said game. Having found a new world, ripe for domination, we will rise.

For those of you that wish to join our Ascendancy on our path to undeniable victory, contact myself on Laionhart or Meteorfall on Luxeon. We’re also interested in forming Alliances, and have been discussing it with a few guilds with whom we share common interests.

But yes, each Sunday, or Saturday, I will be posting a little update to inform you all of what we got up to this week! So here it is!

This week; Frozen Ascendancy was formed. Yay. Since then, we have been very active in ORVR this week, I have led keep raids with at least one group with Ascendants within. Seeing as this was our first week we haven’t done much ‘as a guild’, but tonight will mark our first “Guild Title Run”, wherein we get a group, or warband, and run North from Altdorf, all the way up to the Chaos Wastes, in an effort to pick up the cool titles, like “Scion of Anarchy“, “King Slayer” and “Foe of the Dark Gods“. It’s a lot of fun and also offers a lot of XP rewards from “Notable Persons” and Tome Unlocks.

We’ve made friends with the guilds Warpath and One Legion. One Legion‘s guild lead, Lumani, is a pretty cool guy. We had two ORVR warbands running around and we were sending whispers to co-ordinate them. I spent Sixteen Hours in ORVR on friday night. Of course I’d like, go AFK every so often. I spent an hour AFK in Mandred’s Hold during an attack by Destruction. I came back, as an R15 White Lion, with my influence capped. It was win.

On the subject of “win”, I’d like to discuss these Medallions. It’s cool how cheap things are now. My WL had full Obliterator at R13. And I killed an R12 Magus as an R8 Warrior-Priest, and it somehow dropped a Tier 4 medallion. Did you know they convert into 125 Tier 1 Medallions? Oh yeah. Full Decimator and half of Obliterator at R8. Happy me. What I’d like to see, is for Battlefield Objective Heroes drop one for every person who killed it, and for the “Defend [Keep Name]” quest to reward at least one.

I’d also like to bring up another issue, not just with ORVR, but with warbands in general. If you are in a warband that is actually doing something, like, I don’t know, a keep raid, have the common decency to not take the scenario pop. Or better yet, unqueue. I’m sick of having to kick people every five minutes because they’re in Stonetroll Crossing! Also, this one’s a bit harder, try not to goof off and do your own thing if you’re in a warband doing ORVR. It’s annoying and it wastes precious space. Do you think Warband spots grow on trees!? No they do not.

I’m sorry for the rant and ragepost. But seriously. Enough’s enough. Consider yourself lucky I didn’t get on a DPS Archmage rant. In closing; join Frozen Ascendancy if you play Order on Dark Crag. Also. Don’t be stupid. Have some consideration.

And remember; when life gives you lemons, blood for the blood god.

Frustration is REALLY getting me

So, the Herald’s Twitter gave a code(s ?) out again today. When I saw the announcement, I literally refreshed my page every 1 minute.

I was getting very hungry and decided “Hmm… I’ll try to stay close to my computer while I make meselfz something to eat.” Once I’m done, I refresh the twitter page and WHAT ? The code went out 8 minutes ago… SHIIIT ! Of course, it was allready used… I’m hoping they’re giving out another one cos’ the announcement did say Codes with an “s”. So yeah, this time I ain’t movin, and wish me luck yet again, to get those oh-so wanted in-game items.

CODES FOR THE STT GOD

I must be lucky…

Those Twitter giveaway codes are killing me. Now that I’ve changed my account to the US Herald, the damn codes work. So today I was all like “I hope Josh gives out some of the LotD codez… gwahahaha”. Of course, I forgot all about that after an hour or two.

I log in on Twitter… HOLY *censored for copyright purposes*, he gave codes out 16 minutes ago, if I’m lucky, one of em’ will still work. Anxiously enough, non of em’ worked GAH.

Nevertheless, I’m determined to get those shineyz soon enough. I guess I’ll camp in front of my screen until someone gives codes away. That could last long.

Oh and yeah, when I was on the EU Herald, I’d always manage to log on Twitter like 1 minute after a giveaway was done. Greaaaat.

That was my rant of the day folks, and wish me luck. Ima need a lawt of Hot Pockets.

Eat your veggies !

WCPI, and more.

Before I get too into it I am sad to announce that Dont, the writer from Blame The Healer has chosen to definitely not resubscribe to Warhammer. He, like the others, will be sorely missed, but we’d still like to see you guys around, on MSN, even. Blame the Healer is the blog that stood out most to me, as a great blog and a catchy name. It was my old WoW guild’s motto. “If anything goes wrong, blame the healer.” Theerivs from Way of the Chosen has also decided to quit the game. Girl IRL, a WAR blog by Jennifer, who I’m disappointed I never got to catch up with ingame on the server we both play Destruction on; Praag, has quit WAR, but has a new blog we can read.

And the funny part is that THESE WERE THE PEOPLE I WERE GOING TO WCPI FOR THIS WEEK. Bastards. So here’s Incoming Pull by Tulane Grimm.

This blog is great and I’m disappointed I didn’t get into it sooner. Grimm, as cliche’d as it sounds, “tells it like it is”. He has practical advice, such as how to stave off boredom and not losing interest in the game. I highly recommend Incoming Pull. Read it. Or there’ll be Witch Elves waiting for you…and not in the good way.

In other news, Meteorfall has switched to US realms and we’re both now playing Praag (Destruction) and Dark Crag (Order). Look us up!

For all of those disheartened by the losses from our community, stand tall and look onward. For though this game is not perfect, we must hope, and pray to Mork (or is it Gork?) that Mythic see their mistake and learn from it. For if they do not, all shall be lost, another MMO fallen to oblivion and more great potential destroyed by Electronic Arts. Let us hope that this game goes in such a direction that all those who have left, will return.
