All DC’s and no play make Avvy…

January 3, 2010

In doing some perusal of the mighty intarwebs I’ve found I’m not the only one DC’ing with ferocious abandon since the recent patches hit. Suggested fixes seem to range from “disable certain addons and your combat log” to “delete the patch.MPQ files and force the Repair tool to redownload them (a hefty 4GB of patch files I might add).” As I’m hopelessly addicted to my fleet of addons, I’m attempting option 2 as we speak. Before I did so I backed up my Screenshots and WTF (WTF!!!) folder as suggested and found that over 5 years of play I’ve accumulated 1.54 GB of screenies. That’s a lotta Print Screen spam!

To pass the time while I wait for wow to redownload itself, here are a few funny (well to me, anyway) screenshots of old…

klaus fakes a lot of things

from the days of Restrained Chaos circa '06. I miss Klaus and Pure :(

klaus links his mount while flying

more Klaus shenannies (I should clarify it was his flying mount, heh)

rocket helmet away!

I used to have itemrack set so that whenever I got on my mount, it changed my helm to the Rocket Helmet you got from some quest in Netherstorm. I mean hey, what if I fell off my gryphon!?

pure's outta there

dangit Pure, come back to wow, I miss ye :P

RIP wall climbing

back before the great wall-jumping nerf of whenever you could climb up to the top of the dome in Nightbane's room in Kara. I made it all the way to the top... once!

shortly before my old video card finally gave up the ghost in 2007, WoW’s graphics started tweaking out in wacky ways (ignore my craptacular old UI, that was before I discovered the wonders of minimalism)…

Avvy on acid?

If I moved around that mob, the colors would change like a prism o_O

red rain?!

red rain?! holy crap it's the end of the WORLD

more like tweakystone

my hearthing animation... I don't even know how to describe this.

Oo, looks like the Repair tool is finished… guess I’ll log in and see if the DC’s are gone.
