Ritual of Chaos - Chaosaclysm

By: Damian Lampl - 4/7/2010 6:55:09 PM

Noticing a pattern yet?

For many of you, green fire is important.  So important, in fact, that instead of continuing to play with normal fire spells, at least one warlock has made good on a promise to manually extract his own kidney stones by inserting one of those handy grabber tools through his urethra.  Painful?  Apparently not as painful as looking at plain old orange/yellow fire in a video game... (ellipses signify the profound notion of someone shoving a metal claw up their member* as an alternative to looking at the typical rendition of fire in pixel format)  There's a video of it somewhere but this is an all-f---ing-audiences space so you're on your own to search for it.

Unfortunately not all changes will bring about the elation commonly experienced from the satisfaction of plucking out and eating the eyes of a three-day old bunny like green fire provides, but Blizzard can't hit a touchdown every face-off.


Ritual of Chaos - Geists FTW

By: Damian Lampl - 3/20/2010 1:11:05 AM


Once upon a time, FTW meant something ENTIRELY different than it does in today's mash-your-phone-with-your-thumbs age.  For those unawares, apparently it now means, "For The Win."  Back in the day it was a very useful acronym which is ironic given my disdain for cryptic letters that could mean virtually anything to anyone.  Regardless of its meaning, the result is the same: geists are f---ing awesome.  This is not a joke.  You do not pass Go.  Frodo does not make it to Mount Doom.  And maintenance will last all day.  This is serious shit we're talking about here.  So serious, in fact, there will be multiple blasphemies thrown in your face before the end of this post.  You've been warned.


Ritual of Chaos - Level Guide: 10

Big Blue and You
Trust me, we're not lost...

Honestly it's a miracle you've lasted this long.  No really, it's quite an achievement to ding Level 10.  They even put an achievement for it in the game.  Not kidding.

In some ways the training wheels have now been ripped off your tricycle and you're now tooling around on just three wheels!  Badass.  Pretty soon you'll graduate to a bicycle with training wheels and then who knows from there, maybe a unicycle or something awesome like that.  What?  Who doesn't like tooling around on a unicycle?

Level 10 brings about all sorts of new goodies and decisions.  Maybe not in that order but both definitely exist.  In addition to new spells, you're also going to land your next minion as well as your very first Talent Point.  There's so much going on right now your head just might explode.   ...   ......  ..........  Nope.  Damn.  Would have been cool.

How long ago was that?

Where'd your head go? Excuse and bullshit and words and numbers. Here's a new post for the first time in more than... two months? Yikes. ROC probably won't be weekly anymore (obviously) but it'll still get done once in a while and there are about 5 or so unpublished (but not quite finished) posts from way back yonder in the section of existence that was months ago sometime.

So what really happened? Well there was this [event] that was overwhelmingly [adjective] and with all the [plural noun] [progressive verb] my [noun], there just wasn't enough [noun] to get to everything. [number] [unit of measure] ago I said to [name], I said, "[name], [noun] is really [progressive verb] the [noun] and I just can't [verb] with all this [progressive verb] going on." And [name] said to me, "Damian, you've got [number] options: [number] - you can [verb] yourself into the [noun] or [number] - you can [verb] a [noun] with a [noun], your choice." So naturally I chose to [verb] [number] [plural noun] and this site took a [progressive verb] [verb] into a [noun].


Ritual of Chaos - Level Guide: 6-9

Nightfall at Agamand Mills, Tirisfall Glades
No, really. It looks totally safe.

Sweet Aunt Jemima, you're Level SIX already! Wizzoot! Did you know it used to take eight full months to reach Level 6? It's true, look it up. You've only been playing for four hours and for three of those you were running into walls and jumping in place. Seems like only three levels and 500,000 words ago we were discussing the same phenomenon. Deja vu.

Ritual of Chaos - Why Do Mages Hate Us?

By: Damian Lampl - 9/18/2009 5:14:44 PM

Why mages hate us
Jealous of the epic mount, are we?

Us warlocks have come to live with the fact that we're Azeroth's outcasts and even pride ourselves in being the demented step-cousins of the world. But what's the deal with mages hating us so much more than any other class? Are they so insecure with their inabilities that they resort to making up stories about us to justify their own shortcomings? Are they that jealous of our control over demons that they summon their own minions thinking we'll somehow be impressed? Are they so ugly that even ogres find them repulsive? Yes. Yes they are.


Ritual of Chaos - Level Guide: 1-5 Profession Supplement

By: Damian Lampl - 9/11/2009 3:05:52 PM

Tailoring Profession
What to choose. What to choose...

Now that you're Level 5 and already more than six percent of the way to the level cap, the professional world is now your pearl. No, sorry, it's your Small Barnacled Clam. Always seem to get those mixed up. At any rate, if you have enough copper saved up you can learn yourself some trade skills. As with spell rotations, there are no "wrong" professions for a warlock. You'll definitely see more benefit from some over others but Blizzard totally set things up so you can pretty much play the game the way you want. Genius, man. Pure genius.

Sometimes bathroom attendants can be a little overbearing.

Ritual of Chaos - PVP Guides: Wintergrasp

By: Damian Lampl - 9/4/2009 2:01:31 AM

Wintergrasp - 100k Health
Only 17 tenacity? They're slacking off.

So you've finally dinged level 50.  Time to hit up some Wintergrasp, huh?  Wait, no, even locks shouldn't be that guy.  So you've finally dinged 51.  Time to hit up some Wintergrasp, huh?  What's in it for the aspiring lock unafraid of a few (thousand) deaths in the span of twenty minutes?  Aside from cannons, the epic feel of storming or defending a castle, cannons, being the best zone in the game for farming ore/herbs/elementals, cannons, siege vehicles, cannons, epic shard/marks gear rewards, cannons, and being able to blow things up with CANNONS, Wintergrasp has beautiful scenery this time of year.  Nice flowers.

There's two basic strategies in Wintergrasp: attacking and defending.  Don't worry, despite needing a degree in Astrophysics to follow along, it won't get more complicated than that.  And there'll be no math in case rogues or mages feel like skimming through their superior class' notes.  Everyone ready?  Yes?  Damn.  I'll wait until you're not.
