As of today I have cancelled my WoW subscription and will no longer be blogging. I may come back to it one day, but at this point in my life I don’t see it being likely.

If you ever enjoyed anything I wrote, cheers.

Happy huntings




This is the Etc. he was talking about!


 Mushan is an awesome hunter blogger – make sure to check out his amazing site (that always has something fun or interesting to read!).



Mushan! Thanks for taking the time to have a chat with me!

Thank you, Quelys! I was so surprised and excited when you asked to interview me. It’s truly an honor!

So real-life Mushan; lover or fighter? What are you like?

Lover. In the flesh, I’m a regular guy working a regular job. I’m an introvert, but I like to talk, if that makes any sense (erm, read my blog!). I’m very much a pacifist. I place a high value on relationships. I play some guitar; I like More >

Quel in the action of putting his opinions on the interwebz

An elitist analysis of elitist jerks by an elitist jerk, you jerk*


Back in the day I was a frequent visitor to Elitist Jerks and their quite helpful forums. As a budding young hunter, I was always eager to check out the gory insides of theory-crafting, and the hunters there are some of the most qualified for these particular number crunch obsessions.

I swung by EJ today to have a look, and was quite surprised that one of the first things I read (in the BM guide) I did not agree with.

After all – opinions are like rear orifices; everyone has one. And just because mine differs from the authors, does not mean I am ‘right’.

13/13 Heroic ToT clear!


Fantastic raid last night.

Sunday saw my raid team Nocturnus Vexillari get oh so close to heroic Lei Shen, but no dice. It was a painful night where the last pull of the night saw us end on a 3% wipe!

Leading into Monday, I was quietly confident, and very excited to knock this guy over. We (as a raid team) have suffered a great deal this expansion, and this tier was no exception. This tier alone saw us lose 3 core members two weeks into ToT (they jumped ship to form a ‘better’ guild, one which swiftly imploded as we steamrolled past them in the early heroic push), have a healer jump ship to More >

Patch 5.4 PTR notes


Sweet datamining goodness!

Sorry I have been away for so long folks, between raiding and RL I have had minimal time to write, not to mention I haven’t been overly inspired to write.

I think I just need to start doing several small posts, I set out for this blog to be a self reflection of my time and experience in world of Warcraft, yet I feel I got carried away with providing useful information, such as guides etc.

HOWEVER! The next major patch is currently in development, with some official PTR notes as well as some datamined goodness! Today we will be looking at the official PTR

Interesting changes ahead


The 5.3 patch notes can be found here

5.3 has landed, and as I prepare to log in tonight and once again begin the heroic progression in ToT, there are a few changes that have been made that I would like to reflect on/

First of all – a buff! YES, that is right…. a BUFF!

Aspect of the Hawk now increases ranged attack power by 25%, up from 15%.

Aspect of the hawk/Ironhawk will now increase our AP by a further 10%. Now this may be a slight tweak to bring us further in par with hard hitting locks and other classes, after all; in a 25 man heroic setting it doesn’t look like we are fairing too well. More >

I am pretty :)

The time consumption of everything!


Let me first apologize, I feel that for the last year (and yes, Quel’s hunting corner is indeed over a year old) I have been making and breaking promises almost constantly. Now it isnt that I dont like writing; as my guild can attest, I have no problem talking someones ear off, and as someone that has spent a vast amount of time contemplating and procrastinating, I do not have a problem cataloguing my thoughts.

The problem I am faced with at the moment is life – but not in a bad way.

I am not sure about the age of my fellow bloggers and hunter pals, I know some are older, and inevitibly some More >

The Thunder King Cometh


Blizzard have released the official trailer of patch 5.2, and I must say this is what I love about Blizzard and their games – it makes you really want to play it. Hopefully this proves to be a formidable test for raiders, don’t forget there is only about two weeks before this bad boy is released (general guestimate, not a legitimate date). My personal raid team is working on Heroic Sha. Unfortunately we hit a bit of a wall with the loss of a couple of DPS for a few weeks. To put it in perspective, when we had our full strength team two weeks ago, we had a 17% wipe. We are now just managing More >

Time to dust it off!

MMmmmmmmm (get it?)



This is the sort of love that I have been talking about! I know it isn’t completely terrible, but as people will quickly point out – having 0 niche market for the once beloved spec of many has seen it cast aside, brought back for boredom or to fool around with (or for those that do not need to take a particular aspect of the game too seriously). I have played around with it a few times, and it just didn’t pack enough ‘oomph’.

So what are the buffs you say? BEHOLD!!!
