High Priest Thekal Video!

So second video. This one actually has some content. Zul'Gurub High Priest Thekal. This was a pretty clean takedown. The healer in the first phase is really what will kill you. If she gets off a heal after one of the others dies you will not have the time to burn down the mob within 10 secs. My strat is to keep pet on one (usually boss) and then burn down the two Zealots myself. That way I can keep a good eye on their health. When they are all under 20% I burn the healer down to nothing and then swap to the other Zealot. The pet should have Thekal almost dead so no worries there. But getting the healer down first is the key!Second phase is just tank and spank. The charge does very little damage and doesnt knock you down for long.

Over all not a hard fight. The three mobs munching on your pet don't do a lot of damage so shouldn't be an issue. If you have low pet health go the turtle with its shell shield. And always keep mend pet up- because the silence can be lethal to a pet with low health!

Hope you enjoy this post.
Happy Hunting!

The first Hunter Movie!

So this is very basic. I need a better editor. Windows Movie maker sucks cock like a cheap hooker with cold sores. My vision is to be able to do pro looking ones like BRK did in his day and like Frostheim does from time to time. With voiceovers, music and an appropriate speed for boss fights.

I will post links to wowhead with my build etc at a later date. At the moment I feel lazy and I am eating dinner. Yes at the computer. No, I am not a sadcase. I have no TV out here in the wilderness. Internet yes. It runs off hardlines. Tv however is from aerial and you cant get reception in a valley. Hard to even get mobile reception out here.

Till next time. HAPPY HUNTING!

My Signature Dish

Everyone has their signature dish. The one you know off heart, you like the taste of and isnt a real pain in the ass to cook. Mine is Spaghetti Bolognaise. Its based off mum's recipe. Everything from scratch. No bought bolognaise sauce. And its awesome and flexible.

Ingredients (serves 3 decent portions)

500grams Minced Beef
2X 500gram cans of peeled tomatoes (chopped or crushed with or without herbs)
Note: you can use fresh tomatoes and it would most likely be nicer with fresh ones but for convenience's sake I used canned. It also has a nice amount of juice with it to keep it moist
1 medium sized brown onion (can be larger or smaller according to taste)
1 or 2 cloves of crushed/minced garlic
Tomato sauce/paste
Worcestershire Sauce
Herbs to taste

Cut up the onions and crush/mince the garlic. Throw it in a pot or deep pan and brown well. Next throw in the mince and brown it too. Chuck in the tomatoes and add tomato sauce/paste and worcestershire sauce to taste. Stir well and let cook for 5 mins on medium heat. Add pepper and herbs to taste. Let sit on medium to low heat for about 30 mins making sure to stir it so it does not catch on the bottom. Depending on how liquid you like your sauce take it off and serve immediately over pasta with parmesan or romano cheese and hot crusty caibatta garlic bread. Also tastes brilliant the day afterwards.

Its not a very precise recipe and thats the brilliance of it. If you like it really tomato-ey use more tomato paste. Like more herbs? Go for it! You can also add things to it to spice it up such as fresh minced chillies, some bacon (dont let it stew too long!) and mushrooms. Like I said it is really flexible. I use it to make a batch of pre cooked meals to freeze for when im too tired/lazy to be bothered cooking. Its handy as!

The Blog Begins

So I have thought about making a blog for a while now. There is two I read at the moment and they are seem pretty good. Daniel Howell (aka BigRedKitty) does a fantastic job of it- highly entertaining commentary about his life, his past and the odd bit of WoW goodness. The other one is Warcrafthuntersunion- all hunters, all the time. Much love for anything hunter related on the internets- cuz you know we are just the best class in the game. Which is why we are the second most hated and the second most played (both firsts belong to DKs now I think).

But it got me thinking that I could do my own blog. A bit about my huntering in WoW, a bit about my flying, a bit about life in general and of course any shenanigans I get up to (or even hear about) that may get a giggle. I dont expect a following of any sorts and I doubt ill keep at this for any more than a few weeks but I'll see how she goes.

First a bit about me. Im 22, male, Australian. I love flying, women, WoW, video games, driving way too fast and thirst quenching alcoholic beverages. I have had so many jobs since I was 15 that its almost too hard to keep count of them. I live in a shed behind my grandparents house out in the hills in Queensland- its awesome with its proper walls, bathroom, sink, tiny little oven/cooktop and old beaten up fridge. If it weren't behind my grandparents place, had a double bed in it and was closer to proper civilisation then I would call it the perfect 20 something's bach pad.

I always built aircraft/spacecraft with my lego and mechano set when I was young. I would spend endless hours playing epic aerial fights with them. I always thought that being a pilot was out of my reach by a long way. The $60,000+ for the training always seemed to be a huge hurdle. Air Force was a contemplation but not something I ever seriously considered until I was out of High School. But once I had my first joyflight in a Cessna 172, I was hooked. Can't get enough of it. I describe my passion for flying like an addiction to a drug. Ruinously expensive, runs my life, can't shake the cravings and ends up interfering with my day job. Sounds almost like a heroin addict right? Yeah. Thats what I feel about flying. I am almost finished my commercial pilot's license and have come a long way from when I started out. My other avenue I am pursuing is an application to the Royal Australian Air Force. But more on them in seperate posts.

World of Warcraft is something that a mate of mine and his (at the time) missus got me into in december 08. My initial impressions were " OMFG THIS PLACE IS CRAZY HUGE". I've been a long time RPG fan and WoW was the one that took my breath away. It was big, it had several races and classes instead of just a few, it was fun and it was ALIVE. The social interaction of the game is truly what keeps people playing it. As much as I loved Morrowind and Oblivion- I really haven't played them a lot since. And I'm pretty sure I never finished either of them. Fail eh? But WoW had me hooked. I rolled a hunter straight out. Best. Class. Ever. I took 6 months off it from Feb 09 till August due to moving interstate and other issues. Came back to it, got TKO to 80 and began a short but epic career as a hard core raider in an average guild. After a few months I had to throw it in due to workload for my commercial pilot's licence. Real life always comes first- too many people let it run their lives which gives the game its bad rep. Now that things have calmed down a bit I play again - but its not nearly to the level that I was at before. Just another random PUG hunter now. My loves are Extreme Soloing, hardcore raiding and a touch of pvp.

So that's a bit of a rough intro to both me and the blog. There will be some videos, links and stories posted up as time goes on.
