Hunting for Zealots >:-D

It's always been a dream of mine to catch Mykiel in t1 on his zealot Naa and to emote spam him.

Yesterday it came true, I knew it was saturday and he was bound to be playing, I made a whole bunch of macros just for him, /target naa.. /target naa /cheer.. /target naa /wave


I feel so proud of myself for finding him and giving him COUNTLESS EMOTE WAVES OF DOOM!


wait.. I forgot to turn off Red text... teehee.


Friday, January 28, 2011


Bold + Italics = producers letter
Red text = me

It’s a brand New Year! Yup, Hai! For many, this is a chance to reflect, Like a mirror!! :D for others a time to look ahead. Like what deer don't do (stupid deer) Some make resolutions Like in Tunisia? Oh.. RESolution.... Sometimes they stick to them, sometimes they don’t Are we still talking about revolutions?. Regardless of your personal view of the New Year and what it brings, it marks a time for change. Like.. TZEENTCH!!! Wait... he's the change guy.. right? Eka correct me if I'm wrong

This month’s Producer Letter is being brought to you by James Casey The guy in the rat suit?. James has been a Producer on the project for some time and has run a number of WAR initiatives (New User Journey Oh..., Endless Trial OH..., Verminous Horde OHHHHHHHHH, etc.) in tandem with Carrie. Carrie is still working on WAR, but is looking at a different aspect of the game. This new focus will be revealed in due time. Sometimes I get focused when I play my dok, I don't like it when I die.. it makes me feel inferior.

In setting up this year, we took a look at what we accomplished last year and what remained on our ‘to-do’ or wish lists My wish list would to have a rally master on theislandoftru. These are gathered internally Like.. from organs? and from feedback Ohhhhhhhhh... that we gather all year long. We then plotted those out with our normal patch cycle in mind.  Teehee, like a pirate's patch.

The actual numbered patches for this year (1.4.1, 1.4.2, 1.4.3, 1.5, 1.5.1 :D…) will follow a similar cadence to last year. Our first patch for the year (1.4.1) will be a smaller version dedicated to bug fixes When I was like, 7, I broke a grasshopper's leg off... but I don't think you're talking about that kind of bug fix and a few new features Yay!!!!!. Amongst those features will be a new way to claim account entitlements (such as the Snotling Herald Pets) I don't have that yet.. o.o. This new interface will replace the current method of delivering account entitlements via the in game mail system Will it still make me feel special when I see I have mail?. We did this for a number of reasons. The primary reason is that in-game mail expires by necessity I've lost many this way :-(. The new claim interface will allow you to claim the items anytime ooooooh!!!. The second reason is that we wanted to give you an easier method to recover lost items that you may have misplaced over time One time my pie disappeared for a few days, and I was sad, then I sent in an appeal, and in less than a day I got my pie back.  Yay . For items that don’t have charges or function as a ‘currency’ item, such as War Tract scrolls, players will be able to reset those account entitlements at their leisure without having to contact customer service. Does this breastplate make my hip look wide?  This new feature will cover all item based deliveries from account entitlements whether they are paid items like you can purchase on the EA Store or marketing rewards from events or the collector’s edition.

Another feature of the patch is a re-structuring of our Scenario line-up Yay! I think we should make Khaine's Embrace a permanent SC for all tiers.. :-)... or pheonix Gate.. :-D. We’ve monitored feedback and statistics over the last year and decided to shake up what scenarios are available all the time for each Tier Put all the SCs in a hat and draw them, that works best. The current structure of the Scenarios will remain unchanged, but the Scenarios themselves will be different Make everything a team deathmatch, first the 500 points, 1 kill = 1 point :-DDDDDDDDDDDDD. Some scenarios stayed where they are, some changed what tiers they are available at Did you know.... A cat can make over 100 facial expressions, while dogs can only make 10., and some are gone and replaced by other classic scenarios. For example; The Maw of Madness Meh, I never cared for this SC will be making its return to the Tier 4 scenario Queue. We’re going to be closely monitoring the scenarios when 1.4.1 goes live and will make further adjustments in later patches as go through the year based on your feedback. The mouth is on the face.. not the back.. duh

We have plans for major features for each of our numbered patches this year. YAY!!! :D The plans include expanding existing areas Oh my god.. somebody call Eka.. now.. NOW.. and features as well as new concepts to the Warhammer Online experience. With each subsequent producer letter I plan to share more of these plans. I like PQs.. do you like PQs man in rat suit?

Shifting gears a bit , I’d like to tell you about our plans for Live Events I am quite fond of Live Events. We have eight Live Events planned for this year WOW!! That's one for each month of the year! Wait.... Some of these are returning favorites (like the recently completed Keg End Wait til December please.. I'm tired of fireworks... also make it so the opposing realm can see your fireworks) and the forthcoming Night of Murder in February What a weird theme for valentines day.... Others are new ones we have planned to fill in some of the calendar gaps. YESSSS, THANK GOD, FINALLY!!! Along with the Live Events, we’ll continue to support Weekend Warfronts with plans to introduce some scenarios that haven’t made their debut in the Warfront format Just please don't say you're introducing something for Grovod Caverns... We also have some very special plans for Grovod Caverns GAHHHHHH, at least make it so I can summon my mount in the place then....

Along with the patches and live events, we also have plans to expand our services and Account Entitlement offerings this year. This includes introducing paid name changes I Won't change my name.., more pets Yay, and more ways to personalize your character Ehh.

Finally, I’d like to address a topic that I’m sure is close to everyone’s hearts; server population Cross Server SCs for t2 and t3 if possible plz. We’ve been monitoring the situations on each of our servers in every market Ever been to a Moroccan marketplace? Yeah me neither, I will one day though.. ONE DAY.... Our current situation on most of the servers shows us numbers that fall within traditionally acceptable parameters, notably our peak population values Mount Everest is a peak.. I think. Peak population is where we see the most activity on the server Go on...; during what is considered prime-time for the server or ‘peak’ hours You just repeated yourself.... However, we understand that population is a key component to enjoying the game YES :D. As part of an effort to ensure off-peak hours are as enjoyable as peak hours can be, we are actively discussing our plans for lower population servers Man, I tried to log onto my Dark Crag character yesterday.. that place is dead, let me tell you... no one but me I swear.. come to think about it, I wasn't even able to log on... If you haven’t heard anything to this effect by the time this letter sees print, you should see something very soon I saw it.. yes.. I did.... We are committed to ensuring that we do what is needed to make sure players enjoy their experience in WAR. Well, that's fortunate.

As we close out this producer’s letter, the first of many for the year 8, we’d like to take a moment and thank all subscribers; past Yaaay, present I like presents, and future Yaaaay. Thank you for your patronage, your support, and your feedback on Warhammer Online over the past year and we hope to continue to provide you an unparalleled RvR MMO experience into the New Year That reminds me.. it's almost february... you know what I bet the guy who came up with the spelling for february was the same guy who came up with the spelling for Wednesday... that bastard...!

On a side note.. it was James Casey in the rat suit during the video Q&A.. right? If not I'm going to look really stupid.. more stupid than usual...

Imagine fighting in a land filled with cliffs, an icy wasteland, and many caves, with a giant sea in the middle. Imagine a land that could hold many, many large battles and it’s location is so secret, that only those of the few select t5 know where it is. Imagine a world where a simple misstep could mean falling to your doom.

This zone does exist.


No… ladies and gents I am talking about the elusive KRAKEN SEA :D

: -( <------- Your face.

Don’t fret everyone! The Kraken Sea could be the site of Thehealeroftru’s site for T5.

What’s not to like? There’s Rappelling!!

There’s wonderful wildlife!

There’s many, many possible BO locations.

-initiate Ekaslime pro idea mode-

BO #1: ... Ok.. I have.. no.. BO #1.. I didn't quite know where.. to place a BO...

Well.. how about.. this place by the giant lake in the middle?
YOU CAN PUNTZ PEOPLE INTO THE LAKE OR INTO... This.. what is that thing on the side? Well I decided to jump in and find out, and it turns out it ports you over to your rally point.  Crazy right!?!
 But that's not all.. you can actually walk under the water at a point along the map.

Look! The pretty wildlife found his way along that path!
Theislandoftru will make an appearance as well on this wonderful T5 adventure!

Yes yes, theislandoftru, we haven't been here for a very very long time, and boy do I miss my lovely island, it seems Michael Vick and his slaves pets have taken up residence here, as well as the party dinosaur.

BUT WAIT!!!!!!
Theres skaven on this island as well, and that must mean...
1.4.1 WILL TAKE PLACE ON MY T5 ISLANDOFTRU!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I managed to get a screenshot of this elusive skaven who then ran away into the darkness and mystery of Theislandoftru.
Otherwise known as... THE ISLAND
And this concludes my T5 adventure.

BEAT THAT EKA... oh wait.... you..already.. did?

This is my only preplanned post...EVAR.

I don't stalk.. I just... follow...

So, my spacebar on my keyboard is broken.. so that could cause me some setbacks, I had to copy a space and now for each space, I need to paste it.

Do you have ANY idea how annoying that is?
So eka posted a new post today... guest starring MEEEEEEEEEE

I stalked him and appeared in a lot of his pictures.

So try to find me in them, and you.. well you won't get anything to be honest...

But.. I finally got to try my awesome WH 1 v 1 in t4 rvr, I got a whole bunch of my guildies and I was like "HEY, YOO, GET TO CW AND LETS DUEL FOOLS"

rank 31 non-buffed mr jackson VS rank 40 awesome destro.

Well.. no, but it was this kill that triggered the duels, I killed bridezylla here and I got on vent to say "NOT SO TOUGH WITHOUT GROTSQUISHA HUH!!?!??!?!" And then they challenged me to duels :D

As I control the writing, I'm going to post my wins against bride during dueling.

Heres one...

Oh.. that's.. uhh..

That's all... I lost the rest... GIVE ME CREDIT, I'm only rank 31 :-(
But, she did stomp me all other times... I didn't dare duel grotsquisha cause I figured he's 3 shot me, but I was wrong... hehe

He two shotted me, I'd post the screenshot of it and my amazement, but I don't want to go through that pain and embarrassment again.

I also dueled a shaman, I won him a few times and he won me a few times.

It's always nice to have some practice for when I hit 40 :-D

Poll Results:
What are your feelings on the state of the game?
It's doing excellent: 3%

I've done the rank 40 hard PQs for all of destro, I haven't done one of them for order yet.
I finally got my first chance to do one with Oldrunnar today, and god dam I was laughing so hard that I had to stop taking screenshots.
As is the norm with most of my posts, to me, they're "ROFLCOPTARLAWLERSNESS" at the time, but by the time I post, it's more of a "You had to be there" moments.
And, I know that you're probably sick of them, and you're like "TROOF, WHAT THE CHRISTONFERNOFFERISH?!??! Y U NO DO ANYTHING GOOD ANYMORE" and I say "Well.... I don't know.. but have you seen my cat?" And I understand those.. but theres just something about giant kitchen appliances that attack you that brings everyone together.



That's not the end.

At the end...


 No. We didn't win.

Before I end this, I think that for the first time ever, I'm going to try to pre-plan a post, instead of making it up on spot... lets see how that goes, eh?

Wednesday, January 19, 2011

Having fun in t4... wait that's a boring title.. how about... OWNING FACE IN T4... no that's not true..

How about... uhh..... I have no good title for today.

But.. anyways..

I'm not OFFICIALLY in t4 with my lovey little Witch Hunter.. I'm just rank 30, and therefore can fly to the t4 zones.. I don't get the buff yet to 40, but however I can become a gutter runner and that increases my damage dealt by OVER 9000 a fairly good amount, enough that I can kill the wandering Zealot or the afk DoK.

However, what I failed to realize before I went into t4 is... how often will Gutter Runners be available... who does TI anymore? And those who do TI, who actually turns in the skaven stuff?
So I find myself waiting at the portal all day trying to find something else to do such as...

Extra large so it's easier to read.. you may have to click on it.. clicking on it enlarges it right?.. no? Well.. can't you see it some how?...god..

Well, I think this alliance chat was the funniest thing that has ever happened in about 1 month.
Well.. it was funny at the time ok... I was in tears from laughing...!!!


Anyways... I recently decided to stalk eka around while he took pictures for his blog, and ended up at a very VERY hated PQ of mine from destro, since they can't see what I'm saying on destro.. I finally got to tell those idiots what they should hear.

...Just thought I'd post this here.

Uh.... yeah.

But, finally, I eventually DID find some gutter runners to run around with, and as expected, they made my damage go up really high. Yay.

The chosen remained unresponsive.. DID I STABBY YOO TOO HERD!?!?!

Poll Results:
Samueljackson the Witch Hunter will hit 40 in...
a week: 12%
2 weeks: 25%
a month or more: 18%
The guy who made that Peter Pan picture.. god that was an amazing reference!!!!:  43%

I personally would say a month or more.. I'll get to 36 then say "MEHHHH nvrmind"

YAY!  I FINALLY got back full heal sov for.. well.. healing.

I hadn't got a gold bag for at least 2 months.. maybe more.. (probably more) Then I do a city today.  HOORAY!!! Only me and another dok rolling on the sov!

So, I had one more piece of sov to get... BUT THEN...
Thehealeroftru has one unread message... O.O
Then I remembered I had done a city instance a few days ago and didn't have time to get my bag (afk writing blog).  I didn't even know what color it was, so I open it up and HALLELUJAH, it's another freaking gold bag.  It's like the warhammer god of kittens was pleased with me.

So.. HUZZAH I finally got to try to Group Heal nerf.

And MAN is it nasty, My crit is less than what a normal heal would do before.
It's pretty VICIOUS.  I haven't actually had a chance to try it in combat yet (Stupid SCs comon POP.)

Mr Jackson is rank 20.

And he has a wonderful horsey I have named steve!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Yay for steve!
Yes! This R steve! My favorite horsy in the world!

He likes Carrots, and the BLOOD OF INNOCENTS nice squishyness of a... marshmellow.
People say "Whoa tru, you're leveling up faster than Rosie O'donnell gains weight!"
And while that may be true, it feels extremely, extremely slow to me.. maybe it's just cause I'm craving the ganky goodness of t4 again.
I do enjoy that I am finally rank 20 though, getting those epic 63k quests that make me giggle like a little school girl. 

In other words, I'm sure that the "EPICNESS RENOWN 50% GAIN BONUS WOOT WOOT" is helping me a lot, I love renown and exp bonuses, and renown really compliments exp does it not?
It feels very nice when you kill a magus in orvr with 400% aao and score 11k exp and 4k renown (W00T)

Thank you to Mythic for that special gift to my wonderful witch hunter.

I'd prefer bonuses over an extra scenerio any day.

Commonly Asked Questions: DA TROOF EDITION

Hi! I'm going to take a whole bunch of messages I have received via E-mail and the forums and answer the questions contained in them!

Theres only one problem... I... don't have any messages that ask any questions about me... So... uh.. well this is awkward...Umm... Well.. I'll make up some!


Answer: Oh no! You caught me! Haha....-awkward silence- uh.. no, I do not use Nerfed Buttons for I lack the mental capacity needed to configure it.  That, and using all the keys on the keyboard makes me feel like a concert piano player >:-D


Well, when I got my chosen to 40 I was all "Hey.. I want to play a healer so I can be healed myself" and I knew that DoKs could heal, so I rolled a DoK.  It just so happens they were epicly awesome and crazy at dps and healing and PEW PEW BANG BANG DEAAAAAAAAAD.


Question 3: Why are you making up questions for yourself? Are you attention starved?
I just feel the need to update my blog every two or three days at least and I need to post today!  Theres really nothing going on as I'm just grinding rats on my WH and eating lots of bacon every day!

Question 4: Are you going to post another picture?



Question 5: And another one?
GAH, fine..

Moar happeh?

Question.. what are we on... 6?: And... maybe a little bit more of pix?


Question 7: Hey.. lets advertise our twitter, shall we?


Ok... Maybe...

No, but seriously, I had a few people ask me if I had a twitter.. and the answer is.. yes I do.. Silly Monkeys where kittens like to go.

I really have had a few people ask me that, so there you go.

I am Ineligible.. Ineligeble..Inelable.. I blame American Education...

Our Favorite Dev Andy has posted a thread saying they're looking for more Core Testers, I thought to myself.. "Hey! This is a wonderful oppurtunity...oppertunity..oppartunity...GAHH.  I was going to fill out an application myself, but then I read over.. everything.. Andy's Text is in Italics, mind is in bolded normal text. and in parenthesis.

We're looking for more players to fill the Ranks of the Core Test group! Are you an avid player of WAR? (YES!) Are you Hardcore? Casual? (Uhh...both) Something in between? (Yeah! This!) We're looking for your input and feedback to help make WAR all it can be! (Hooray!)

What is the Core Test Program? (Something I aspire to be at this moment in time.)

The Core Test Program is a small, hand selected group of players (Speshul people!) chosen for the capability to provide insightful (Uh...), intelligent (Uh oh..) and critical feedback (I volunteer Eka) while at the same time remaining rational and constructive (Eka no longer applies). Players are chosen for their contribution and continual involvement in the Community (Like.. people with blogs?). All Core Testers are required to agree to a Non Disclosure Agreement (or NDA) prior to being given access.(I can spell Cat!)

Should you submit yourself as a candidate, please be aware that your in game account and forum account will be reviewed as part of the process
(During the Summer I got a ban for something.. I think it was trolling, I'm Eliminated!).

Want to know more?
(Not really...I'm already in tears)

Send Andy Belford (Me!) a PM (Can it have emotes in it?) with the following information:
  • In Game Account Name (DO NOT SEND THE PASSWORD!) (MMhmm ok)
  • Age? (SHIT)
  • What kind of a player do you consider yourself to be? (hardcore, casual, other?) (Mixture of the two who likes kittens)
  • Approximately how many hours a week do you spend playing WAR?(Ahh hell...5-10 hours per day.. 35-70 hrs per week, well I need to do something else don't I)
  • How long have you been playing WAR? (Uhh.. I think it was January 2009 I started)
  • What MMO's have you played outside of WAR? (Uh... none)
  • What Careers do you consider yourself capable in? (None DoK)
  • What's your highest Renown Rank Character?(82)
  • Why do you think that you would be an asset to the Core Tester program? (Uhh... I can... dance...)

Thanks and I look forward to reviewing your submissions! (...................)

PS: So no one freaks out, all the mispellings at the start were intentional.

Now lets sit down and eat a yummy apple.
