Wowinsider crits my blog for over 9000


WoWinsider posted about my blog, and I went from having about 100 visits a day to KABOOM exploding server in the matter of an hour or so. (Thank you for the publicity, WoW insider! I’m at over 4,000 visitors so far today.)

We’re aware of the earlier crashing problems, thank you everyone for being patient and understanding. It may be a little up and down for a while, but we’re doing the best we can to keep it stable. If this site has to go offline in the near future to get transferred to a new hosting site, I’ll make sure to post more updates.

However, we think it should be at least up and running through most of the transition over the next two or so weeks. I’ll also do my best to let you guys know in advance when the switchover will likely happen.

Just “bear” with me.  We apparently underestimated how fast this site would grow. We also expected our hosting provider to be a little better able to handle it (My boyfriend does all the computer stuff, and if it’s broken, it’s not my fault!)

If you are looking for my druid leveling guide, there is a copy of it up in the WoW forums, as well (here’s a link to the first page of the leveling guide thread on the more stable WOW forums), if the one here is sluggish.

I also posted my healing 3.1 guide on the official WoW druid forums (without a lot of the great format, but basically the same content). So, you can now view that guide, as well, from the regular druid forums.

I’m really excited to have my own website/blog set up, so I’ll be posting and updating frequently. Thanks for reading!

Also, that’s NOT my tattoo (Update: the picture is Zeerah’s awesome tattoo that was posted on WOWinsider a couple months ago).

Update: We may have to wait a month or two before transferring this site to another service provider.  If we’re really having problems, I’ll try to get it to happen sooner, but we haven’t had the domain registered long enough to transfer it yet. It seems like after the initial influx, the site has been staying up, so we should be okay for a while.

Arena season 6 gear

season6_druid_hd*breathes a sigh of belief*

Looks like Naked is NOT the druid Season 6 set graphic.

The rest of the class’ armor sets are up on MMO-Champion.

The complete set is actually kinda interesting. I’m not too picky at this point. So long as the set has a graphic, and we don’t have dead birds on our head, or oven mits, I think we’re doing okay.

I’m pretty sure feral druids are going to be the only spec to see the complete arena set, so I suppose it doesn’t really matter what our arena sets look like at this point, anyway. I suppose the set is for RP-strutting down Dalaran on your fancy mount.

After the first tier set that Blizzard made me wear, back before tree form had a graphic you could hide in for healing, my standards of judging gear has just never been the same…

PTR Update: Balance & Resto

According to MMO-Champion: The previously announced changes to typhoon (Adding a 3 second daze) is up on the PTR.

The tree form change (the mana reduction for HOTs outside of tree form) is up, too.

In addition, the moonkin 2-piece Tier 8 bonus was updated to increase the Eclipse bonus by 15% instead of 6%.

These were all changes we were expecting, so no big surprises in this new build.

You have received RL achievement…

Lissanna’s player has received the achievement [Professional Master] in Real life.

So, I won’t post very often about things in my personal life. However, I just finished defending my master’s thesis today (which is the middle, rather than the end, of my PhD program), and that two hours was more draining than I thought it would be, so I don’t have anything of substance to post today.

So, once I finished defending my thesis, and my committee was all like “congrats!”, I had the great letdown of not getting an in-game achievement for it. No text box and points or anything. I mean, I want everyone to know that I worked hard, right? So, why are there no in-game achievements for actually managing to accomplish things outside of the game?

Then again, once I finish all the paperwork, at the end of the semester I earn a title (Master). So, then, everyone can call me Master Lissanna…. Or, maybe not, since my name’s not really Lissanna in real life… Maybe one day, people like Ghostcrawler will be able to add his real life titles to his forum posting name, so he can be “Ghostcrawler, PhD.” Oh the possiblilities…


I’ll post more substance tomorrow.
