Don't get excited

Posted by Aenorn

Hey guys, I doubt anyone still reads this old thing, but I'm using every resource I can get my hands on.

I'm involved in the Hiddentease.com Pro Gamer contest.

I've got a Shattered Horizon montage up currently, so I figured I'd ask for some help from you guys. The more views I get, the better.

I'd greatly appreciate it if you'd check out my video, and even rate/comment if you'd like.


On a side note: hopefully this will help grow the Shattered Horizon communty as a whole. The servers aren't very full as of late, so maybe this will convince some people to try it out.

PS. If you haven't, then try it out! It's a great game.

Epicness in it's truest form

Posted by Aenorn

This is a guest post from Sargeras over at Coffee with Sargeras, enjoy!

Howdy, friends! My name is Sargeras. I am the Supreme Lord of The Burning Legion, the High Sultan of Entropy, and generally the manifest nexus of all evil in the universe.

You may have heard of me.

But enough about me, let's talk about you. What if I told you that your guild could become even better at raiding than Ensidia, just by reading this post? Impossible, you say?

Not at all. Because I'm going to tell you how to defeat...me.

Of course, I am not a fightable boss currently. Heck, they haven't even made Arthas available yet, so I can only imagine how long it'll be before my turn comes up! But when I do, you'll be prepared, and you can rush in and get it done before any of the top-ranking guilds that waste all their time raiding instead of reading my nuggets of wisdom.

So. Battle of the Ages. Here's how it'll go down:


I have a wicked cut scene where I bust out of the Nether and land on a mountaintop all shrouded in flames and everything. It's totally badass. I'm like "WHO DARES DISTURB MY SLUMBER OF AEONS?" Actually I rarely slumber for more than one aeon at a time, but if a final boss fight isn't the moment for hyperbole, I don't know what is.


Straight off I cast "Burning Explosion of Molten Burning Fire (With Burning)", which kills everyone no matter what. Fortunately the blast is so powerful that it bends the space-time continuum back on itself, so everyone comes back to life. So um, I guess the first phase is pretty easy actually?


Realizing that I need to tone it down a bit, I cast my third-most powerful spell, "Burning Explosion of Molten Lukewarm Fire." This will kill about 2/3 of your party, however, it is critical that you do not attempt to heal anyone. If anyone tries to heal after this spell, they will trigger the HealPlox Curse, which causes everyone who gets healed to whine about slow healing through the rest of the fight. This will quickly become unbearable.


I become tired and sit down for a while. I take out my harmonica and wistfully begin to play "Down and Out in the Twisting Nether." Under no circumstances should you attack me at this time, despite my seeming vulnerability, as I will simply beat you down with my harmonica, taking care of course to time my beatings with the rhythm of my song for a pleasing musical effect.


Finally, a chance to attack! I cast "Twist and Shout" which is instantly deadly UNLESS you immediately have your character begin dancing. Every time I pause to take a breath, attack! This phase lasts about ten minutes so you should have plenty of time to destroy my armor, which will lead to...


...in which I shift into my ultimate form, "GRAND FUNK RAILROAD" and cast the attack "Down with the Man!" This will destroy all male members in the party.

As this is my only spell in my final form, the remaining members of the party may attack me at their leisure. I promise not to enjoy it...much. ;-)

Well, there you have it...the foolproof strategy for downing the biggest baddie of them all! Best start practicing now.

Don't say I never gave ya nothin'.

Been busy

Posted by Aenorn

My apologies for the lack of posts the past few days, as I just hit 80 and joined a great new guild I've been running Heroics and healing my brains out! Tomorrow there will be a guest post by Sargeras from Coffee with Sargeras and after that I'll be jumpin' back in! Expect some heavy readin'! :D

What a long, strange trip it's been

Posted by Aenorn

Just hit level 80 on my Paladin, now it's time for bigger and better things with him. Healing Naxx, and Ulduar. Winning Wintergrasp battles, etc. I'm extremely excited about adding this chapter to Unholy Hands. Now I'm able to bring even more to you readers. Thank you all for keeping this blog alive!


Yes, folks. The in game item for Blizzcon 2009 has been announced. It was put up on MMO-Champion yesterday afternoon, as well as WoW Insider. Later that night Blizzard released the official announcement of the non-combat pet. First and foremost I'd just like to state that this pet is made of pure win.

Now I'd like to get into my thoughts on all of this. I think this was a bit unprofessional of both WoW Insider and MMO-Champion. I love both sites, and they have the right to publicize what they find, but Blizzard has stated (and I quote) on the official Blizzcon forums:

"We will likely talk about a goodie bag in-game item in the future (though there are no guarantees of course), but based on the past we don't do this until after the ticket sales and we are much closer to the con happening. Tickets first. :)"

On most things, I wouldn't mind at all. However, this was really Blizzards announcement to make. They probably thought that releasing information on said item before ticket sales would heighten the number of Ebayers and Scalpers who will be buying up tickets only to sell them at higher prices, or those that are just going to sell the code for the pet for 10 times more than the ticket cost.

Blizzard has officially announced it though. This has happened after it started popping up all over the internet. I don't know if they planned it today, but if so they certainly had convenient timing.

This isn't anything huge but it has the possibility of hindering ticket sales to Blizzcon. I know that last year the very first thing I saw when I went to pick up my badge at the box office was a scalper, and an enormous amount of Blizzcon Bears being sold on Ebay.

Those are just my thoughts on the matter. Overall I'm incredibly excited about Blizzcon 2009 and this pet is just another plus!

Yup, Ensidia took yet another world first! Congrats to these guys!

On a side note, Fusion just got the US first for Hard Mode General Vezax! Go go US! :D
