They Walk Among Us

Okay, I’m sorry, cheap trick, but I just couldn’t help it. Pass up a chance to use H.R.Giger’s Alien? Never happen. But no, not them. If they’re here we’ll know soon enough.

I decided to try to find a normal level 73 warlock to compare stats with Ironsally to see just how gimped she really was. I was curious about health, mana and spell power. What does a normal level 73 warlock have in comparision to Ironsally? Here’s Ironsally’s info.

She’s sporting an epic ilevel of 60! You go girl! And she has a whopping 137 spell power, yeehaw! Yeah, I know kind of underwhelming isn’t it. So I set out to find normal level 73 warlocks. This proved to be difficult. You can search the armory filtering for level and class but only within a guild. I searched names that I thought would be common to get a list of guilds and then looked for guilds with high membership. I soon tired of this inefficient method. Level 73 warlocks are a rare commodity apparently. Plenty of 85s but only one level 73 warlock did I find. This one.

Notice anything strange? Is this a closet Ironman? They were wearing typical gear for their level, not bad, not great. But they have no talents, none. The only warlock I could find and they have used no talent points. Is this someone that’s been away from the game and just came back and is unaware that we now have wonderful talents points to use? I mean Sally’s been tormented every ding that proclaims YOU’VE EARNED A TALENT POINT with fancy graphics and all. You really can’t miss it. Wouldn’t you be curious? I guess it will have to remain a mystery. I might try finding a comparable warlock again at a higher level.

I know, probably not that interesting to you but I felt an overwhelming need to communicate using my precious electricity. The news people keep telling me that I won’t have it much longer, and further torment me by saying it could be out for a long time. Hurricane Irene is soon to visit.

I figure we’ll get an aftershock in the middle of the hurricane. Could someone send Mother Nature a gift certificate for a night out or something, seriously. Next week we’ll be serving up volcanic eruptions! Nah, just kidding … I hope.
