StarCraft Cakes & Brain Dumpage

StarCraft  Just for something funny Via The Weburbanist – Makes me want to play Zerg. Pfft Pfft..  TERRAN all the way baby. 

Dreams I’ve been dreaming about Starcraft, more so the Bugs. I had bugs fall in my mouth in my dream, and I spent the next half hour in dream getting legs out between my teeth.  Possibly caused by   too many tower defence games where waves and waves of bugs run past you, screaming as they die  in gory puddles of bloody mess.  Those sounds shall stay with me forever. I have only dreamed about Wow a couple of times in my years of playing.  twice in 1 week I’ve dreamt about Starcraft. 

Chick = healer.  Medivacs have female pilots,  as do your Ground medic Units “ Tell me where it hurts giggle”  I should be grateful for the Valkyries also being chicks,  but I don’t build them anymore.  Much prefer my Battlecruiser fleet  with the old admirals and their pipes.  They obviously aren’t Honor Harrington Fans though, because she is a better Admiral!   I know this healer  = female stereotype is well  over done. I’m amused, not upset.  That they have kept this tradition in a space game. If Ripley can kill aliens in an exoskeleton girls can too, but” In the rear with the gear”  especially if they giggled after  a female voice – would sound – well  – wrong.  Really can’t be f’d being miffed by it. It’s funny.

 I have to admit that I was relieved to find out I had access to a  female avatar.  I looked kinda silly not looking like a girl while being named Zahrah.


My Human Warrior is now 74 – and seems to be defence capped for her level 466 ( and  I know she has to be defence capped – because I’m not working out the maths by level) because I put  a new piece of gear on it with 20 extra defence and only got another 6 defence out of it.  If not for a blacksmithing friend’s alt  who declared he needed the skill ups anyway – I was gifted with about 4 pieces at level 70 of defence gear which helped me massively.

Questing and Dungeoning atm.  May pvp when I get closer to 80.   Was doing the Dragon hunt quest in Coldara, and you get silenced while taming it, and two Hordies ganked me. – Had difficulties fighting back.  So I spent the next half an hour on my main making every single hordes life a nightmare – including my two attackers.  Chasing them cross the snowy plains.  They weren’t even safe back at base.  Dot them up, and start running from the angry Wyrmwrest mage that would try and kill me for breaking the sanctuary.  Run back when the mage was friendly again, and do it all over it again.

Wednesday – the monday of Raiding week is tonight.  We have been able to clear 11/12 hardmodes for the last few weeks on one night, we got to LK last week with 50 attempts left ( no end wing  boss wipes) .  Not doing well on single target smash fights like rot and fester in comparison to the other dps. On Putricide I do ok,   On Princes I kick butt –  will probably do a better break down  after I get to play with tonites logs and compare it.

    “I know she has to be defence capped – because I’m not working out the maths by level) because I put a new piece of gear on it with 20 extra defence and only got another 6 defence out of it.”

    I love you, but this is so bad 😦

    The defense ‘cap’ at level 70 was 490. So at level 74 and 466 defense you are under the cap 😦

    Defense rating and actual defense are different measures. Gear you get will have rating on it. AFAIK (and I may be wrong) the only outright ‘defense’ in the game are the DK runeforges. All other defense enchants/gems/stats on items are actually rating.

    It takes 689 rating (with no DK runeforges) to reach the defense ‘cap’ of 540.

    But 466 at level 74 is awesome :O

    Once you reach 80, you should be close to 5% crit chance immune, or around 5-510 defense. Those last bits are pesky to obtain once you are 80… and in a few months it’ll be useless anyway!

      Bugger.. my logic fails.. and the defence rating stat thing fails too! I should do some warrior reading beyond the wiki page, and here I was thinking all I had to worry about was making sure I kept agro on the mobs/boss and didn’t move around so much so the dps can maximise their dps.

        You really don’t have to worry about defense at level 74; the mobs in regular instances and while leveling don’t hit hard enough that getting critted is a big deal. The main reason getting critted in raids is such a worry is that they’ll tend to insta-gib you; that’s just not a risk outside of raids and heroics though. You’ll need 535 defense (665-ish defense rating) to be uncritable as a level 80 tank in the WotLK heroics, and 540 defense for raids.

        I’d like to point out, his math was slightly wrong too =p It’s 490 at 70 vs level 73 mobs. It’s 540 at 80 vs 83 mobs.

        It would thus be 510 at 74 vs 77 mobs. So at level 74, to be capped vs. level 74 mobs you only need 495.

        Anyways, it’s actually impossible to defense cap on a new character without doing old world / old raid content. The only tanking jewelry available is the ring from Azjol-Nerub at 72. And I believe there is a quest neck.

          Now your being picky 😛 I got that ring! – the rest of my defence gear is stuff that was crafted by a friend, and I picked up a crafted belt with more defence from the AH In my dungeon running so far from 70 – that ring has been the only loot that has been worth rolling need on ><

          • 6 Narx August 5, 2010 at 4:55 am

            Around 75/76 there is a tanking neck from the Ebon Blade/Drakuru questline in Zul’Drak once you complete the chain.

            Ultimately, once you hit 79/80 keep running Halls of Lightning for the defense trinket from Loken. It has like 76 defense or something on it – which will help you reach crit immunity sooner 😀

    Whee – like the Honor Harrington reference 🙂

    *sigh* Mary Sue Harrington reference… Sad 😦 Way worse than any female healer stereotype I would say.
