Rumours of a new 'Prestiege/Hero class'

Ever wondered what it would be like to be just like Illadan Stormrage? Ever seriously considered taking a break from the same old grind of being a Hunter or Rogue? yea me too...

...Well it looks like we may get more than we counted on, this is the second Prestige/Hero class announced (the first being the Death knight) that will be available in the upcoming expansion.

The 'Demon Hunter' will initially be available to the two elf races (Blood Elfs and Night Elfs) and (although Human hunters will be available they will require a slightly longer quest chain in order to do so) is technically the prestige class of Hunters and Rogues if the lore is to be believed, However with this said Death knights are only supposed to be available to Warriors and Paladins so as always the rumor mill may not be very reliable here...

Combining the melee DPS of a Rogue with the ranged attack power (abiet magically) and tracking skills of a hunter while weilding the frankly awesome warglieves available ONLY to this class these blind & half naked warriors take to the battlefield wielding there demon hunting weapons (boath ranged magicle weapons and there glieves) cutting a line through even the most hardy Demonic & undead foe's it appears that blizzard have created one of the most devistating classes available in the game.

Wowwiki has this to say on this class:

Demon hunters are dark, shadowy warriors who are shunned by the greater Night Elf society. They made a pact, long ago, to fight against the forces of chaos using its own terrible powers against it. These mysterious warriors ritually blind themselves so that they develop 'spectral sight' that enables them to see demons and undead with greater clarity. They wield demonically charged warblades in battle and even call upon demonic energies to augment their formidable combat skills. Although they are counted as some of the mightiest warriors within the Night Elves' society, the Demon Hunters are always maligned and misunderstood for making their selfless pact with darkness. Demon Hunters are skilled warriors who have pledged their lives to fighting evil by using its own powers against it. Though many among the night elves and the Alliance fear the demon hunters and their pact with darkness, all know that demon hunters and their demonically-charged warblades have played an important part in combating what remains of the Burning Legion.

i gotta say, i REALLY wanna play this class no matter the cost! lets just hope Blizz don't mess it up... hey we can hope right...

MORE private server pains...

Well tonight after six attempts and five disconnects from the server and much cursing frustration and self inflicted pain we finaly beat seven shades of crap out of Illidan! what should have been our moment of triumph was destinctly soured by one little problem.....HE DIDNT DROP ANY PHAT LEWT!!!

To say we were shocked is something of an understatement and caused some serious dents in our social morale (our druid actualy cried!) that only had one remedy...CONSULT THE GM's.

However it turns out that one of the admin (im not naming names here) decided to change to loot tables on th server to let some whiners get a HELL of a lot of gold from trash mobs with little or no effort, sadly this means that for those of us with the balls to attempt to kill the big bosses in the game that the loot we were expecting not only didnt drop but is now unatainable untill the loot tables can be repaired. As i pointed out...we...were...not...ammused. Some would (smuggly) say that its our own fault playing on a free server to them i say...your probibly right bUt in all honesty where else in the world could you get the level of drama and insanity that a seven man Illidan run can bring and have a hope in hell of bringing him down?

Life the universe and WoW

So im back again, nothing new there or so you would think...i've been a tad busy, life sucks what can i say but thats family for you.
So what the hell have i been doing then? well apart from evicting my brother in law and making myself out as a total dick as far as my family is concerned and something of a social phiria, but screw it thats life isn't it. So anyway now that i have no social life again (thanks bro...) i guess i can go back to playing WoW without feeling guilty... well thats what im telling myself. None the less it does give me a chance to catch up with writing this damn book, gods curse writers block, but you know what they say ''necessety is the mother of invention'' and i REALY need to get payed so i think its about time to put my brain in gear and force my immagination to pay the rent. Anyway back to the grind, maby ill see you in game where i'lll be stimulating my immagintion...*cough*

Only in America...and everywhere else...

Ah Teamspeak & Ventrilo the voice of the huddled masses where a million fratboys and squeekers congregate to assult the ears and numb the senses. Well once again i found myself bound to the iron headset in a frankly insane attempt to once again force the world to listen to my innane rambleings while in turn I attempt to make sense of the wonderful myriad of accents and carry in some form of conversation.

Oddly to my suprise last night while chatting on the Renegade WoW (antrix) server's Vent i found myself destressingly comfortable (athough i did feel a bit old) around the various faceless masses even to the point where i directed some of them to this very blogg! as well as sing my little heart out to some of Brandon (oxhorns) various manic melodies as well as have some suprisingly stimulating conversations with my fellow gamers, however one thing that did keep me awake into the small hours...a veratible question for the ages...a question so pointless and implacable that i still dont have an answer... WHAT THE HELL DOES COKE TASTE OFF???
