I think I’m supposed to start with an introduction.
I am Brewa, a level 80 dual spec kitty/bear in the World of Warcraft. I’ve only been playing for approximately a year, including a several month break in there. I’ve been 80 since the beginning of October. I raid a little, PVP a little, and am a thoroughly unabashed achievement whore. (How bad do you ask? I got Elders of Eastern Kingdoms on my very first toon, before ever reaching level 50. I died, a lot.)
Outside the computer, I am a divorced and engaged father of 2 girls. A desk jockey by day and a waiter by some nights. My daughters who are 7 and 9 seem fascinated by this game and my lovely fiancée not only tolerates my mild addiction to this world, but plays with me and in fact introduced me too it.
I seemed to have come late to the party in Warcraft, so I’ve spent a lot of time attempting to catch up. One thing I’ve noticed in recently though is a severe lack of DPS kitty blogs. So, I thought I would rectify that by adding a new one to the mix.
I am a kitty primarily, but dabble in bear on the side. In kitty, I’ve got my dps to a pretty solid level, now I really need to work on managing the “little things” that can really make or break a raid, managing interrupts, managing aggro, knowing when to rez, and probably some more I’m not quite sure on.
As for bear, I just ran bear last night in a few random heroics, for the first time in a while, and I felt Lucy from “I Love Lucy” working the chocolate conveyer belt. I was button pressing and just hoping, somehow, the mobs would stick to me.
I don’t know if I am your “typical” blogger. I feel like I’ve got a lot to learn, so this may be more of a discussion than, “Hey this is a good way to do it!” This blog is bound to evolve as myself, the game and other players do. I’m not promising a work of art, but hopefully it will be an interesting ride, hopefully you will find some entertainment and education by coming with me. Thanks for reading.
