Still needs work; I’m 90% there. My biggest problem has been training myself to look at the correct parts of the GUI for information. There’s more information presented than in the old GUI, if I but look. There is one area of duplication: Debuffs on me. I kept dying because I didn’t really look at the player base, so I stuck in more information.
I logged in to set up a new GUI after I abruptly deleted the game last week, and hit Onyxia to test it out. Well, colour me surprised.
If I allowed myself to keep alcohol in the house, I would now take out the bottle. I’d set the bottle and a glass on the table, measure out a bleak finger, and down it.
So. I’ve done it. The last of the big four PVP achievements, alongside Battlemaster, Khan and Conqueror. I feel hollow and drained. I poured my time and energy into this one goal all through the year I was sick. This is what still claimed my free time after I got better. I murdered people. I pissed out my hate and rage onto anonymous virtual avatars day and night and day again until I got the biggest prize for it.
It’s a beautiful sunny day outside, and I think I will go for a walk. Big kudos to The Bloodthirsty for the premades.

I think I have the hang of Warlocking again.
As of writing, Shanishta’s gear is bad-there are still a bunch of Timeless pieces, and Prideful/Grievous pieces missing enchants-but I have an idea of how it can be played now. I played a lock for two or three years back in vanilla, but a look at the screenshots tells me that I hadn’t a fucking clue what I was at. I vacillated between Demonology and Affliction, and a look at my spell bars in the screenshots makes me think that I was Demonology. I recall that Destruction was bad, and I was partial to BIG STOMPING DEMONS with which to crush people.
Oh my, how it’s changed. Sit back-stand way in the rear, in fact, keep up my Immolates, spam incinerate, and pop everything when I can Chaos Bolt. Watch enemy healths like a hawk, and spam Shadowburn when they drop low enough.
In most games, I (and we as a team) are shit on hard, but in a few I get to return the favour tenfold. It was hilarious that I got Wrecking Ball inside of a week of seriously playing this character again, to go alongside Masserah and Galishavi’s.
Wrecking Ball doesn’t indicate much beyond favourable circumstances to get a lot of kills, but to me it is the milestone where I “get” the class. I can join a battleground and succeed. Much done, more to go. So I get Destruction now, at least. My next step is Affliction.

On exactly my 140th kill of Kael’Thas.
How can you dislike this happy smiling face and cheerful wave?
The Battle Tabard of the Defilers is a unique and very hard to get PVP vanity item. Simply having one is an accomplishment, but I went further and ran Ulduar and Trial of the Crusader for six or seven straight weeks to get a matching transmog set:
