OMFG, what else can I say?  I really don’t get the SWTOR dialog options sometimes.  I got presented with a dialog choice with Talos, my cute little nerd for “are you flirting with me?”.  I was excited because I thought I’d say that all flirty and get flirty options back.



But NO!!!  Instead when I selected “are you flirting with me?”   I said “I’m sorry Talos I like you but I just don’t think of you that way” WHAT???? WHAT????!?!?!?!  GOD DAMN IT!!!



All the Skill

As the new characters are rolling out, it feels a bit like some others got left behind.  That’s not to say they aren’t good, just that others are better.  I’m sure this is an unpopular opinion but I think Pharah needs some minor buffs.  She’s the only character that freezes in place during her ult, which means she’s a complete sitting duck and almost never gets her entire ult line off.  Someone even made a joke video about that, in fact.  Justice rains from AAH!  Justice AHH!  Justice rains AHH!  If she gets out the entire line, the other team is objectively terrible, imo.

McCree is somewhat close behind because he glows and moves slowly but, his range is much better so he can be almost anywhere and after the slight charge up, he fires immediately.

The other thing is, why is she able to kill herself with her rockets or her ult? No one else is like this (other than Soldier and his rockets, I think).  Junkrat was inexplicably made safe from his own bombs and was made safe from her own ult (which she should have been).  But turn to get someone and accidentally hit a skinny road sign? Cool, you just killed yourself.

I tried looking back through the patch notes, but it feels like Widowmaker got buffs. I went all the way back to April but I didn’t see anything.  It feels like her non-snipe damage went way back up, since she can often melt me as when I’m in her face.  Additionally it feels like it takes way too much to kill Widow, since I’ve hit her with Pharah, or, or have been spraying bullets right on her when she had 1 sliver of health and she still didn’t die.  Add that to rapid fire sniping and wtf really? Oh and plus the grapple.  I meant to do a test game with a widow just standing in place and see how long it takes me to kill her.  I feel it’s way longer than other classes especially because of her small hitbox, which I’m almost guessing was possible made even skinnier. When I’m Pharah I try to counter Widow  but it feels like even if I hit her with a rocket, it barely does anything.



Well, chasing after Thanatan has been taking a really, really long time.


I got to visit Harkun again but for some reason fraps didn’t want to save my screenshots.  He’s extra super polite to me these days, though.  I still find him spicey.  I mean really he’s basically like the baby sitter of the incompetent and totally racist to anyone not human but yeah.  This game really has great quests.

Worse than Timeless Isle

Back during MoP, gear out in the world got extremely unbalanced.  The best pvp gear level was 550, but raiders could get to 580ish.  That meant they could destroy pvpers very quickly, we’re talking 3 globals.  I personally recall dying to a raid tier shadow priest on my resto druid in the span of a Silence, or getting destroyed with a penance or two by a disc priest on my 550 hunter.

Timeless Isle was a real problem on pvp servers in particular, because raiders were gods and could kill pvpers like it was nothing.  I didn’t ever want to see THAT again.

But, here we are.  I’m around 935 ilevel on my mage and priest, but if I run into say, a warlock who is 960ish, they can melt me and NOTHING I can do will save me, I can’t even outheal the damage.  On top of that, you can have someone hit you even at the same item level or close, and take you to 20% health before you know it.  It’s pretty bad.

Though I will say out in Tol Barad, with the exception of that raiding warlock, I’ve still been doing ok.

But, it makes me want to raid just to keep up, it’s frustrating.  It’s totally not fair for me to do that, or have a raider do that either but here we are, again.

Holiday Events

I haven’t been playing WoW a lot lately, just logging in for Tol Barad.  Solo and I came to an agreement that he knows how to play a hunter, I know how to play a healer, but neither one apologized about raging that one day.

I also logged in today and Tank had sent me two pets, Naxxy and the Noblegarden Bunny.  The bunny is pink!!!    I haven’t leveled pets in so long, I really should get on that again.  That was a xmas present, of course!
