New Nightwish video up on last.fm… now, I was never really a fan of Nightwish’s videos, but just listening to the track there just isn’t that same sorta vocal power from Anette Olzon as there was from Tarja. It’s more of an Evanescence-like sound, which isn’t bad (Cy’s apparently a fan of Ms. Lee‘s singing), but it isn’t that operatic sound that actually made me like Nightwish over others in the genre.
That said, Nightwish was all over the map at times in the first place, so I can’t exactly judge off a few tracks.
In actually decent news, new PvP trinkets! They all have an on-use of +1750 max health and you get your choice of a passive: 47 +Damage, 40 +Spell Crit (or regular Crit) Rating, 80 AP, or 88 +Healing (I assume it will also have 29 +Damage). They will certainly replace my current second trinket.
I would have just used the chorus from that song, but that would have made sense.
Anyway, we’ve got a decent amount of the guild on Rupture now, it’s sort of like mySpace for Gamers, although specifically for WoW at this point. It’s pretty spiffy, and using an IM client it updates automatically. It was awesome (it blew CTProfiles out of the water on gear alone)… until Blizzard launched The Armory. It’s basically everything WarcraftRealms could ever ask to be, it has info on individual reputations, gear, buffs, arena rankings, guild statistics, except the whole census thing.
Actually, it seems like that’s the only thing The Armory doesn’t have is a full census section. For guilds, it’s really, really cool. Here’s our guild’s stats, all updating as soon as you change a parameter, and looking very cool to boot.
We’ll see what they add to The Armory, it’s really impressive for a start.
Rogue poked me into updating this. As always, when there’s actually anything worth writing about… I’m off doing it.
Anyway, I updated the links section a bit (notice one thing in the pimpage section ?) and finally added that link I said I was going to… a few months back. Apart from that, not much going on, bouncing between both my characters as of late and have finally taken the plunge and picked up X-Perl, my interface is significantly prettier now.
Oh, and planned Druid talents, although the points in Imp LotP and Nuturing Instinct are basically preference (although I really like Imp LotP). +Healing is more of an endurance stat versus a power stat, so getting +300 on a nearly full heal isn’t that great sounding. Survival of the Fittest is nice, but I may end up swapping the points to Primal Tenacity and either Brutal Impact or Shredding Attacks. It really depends on how useful those talents become, but they’re all quite nice.
A certain someone doesn’t look like she’ll be on tonight, so I’ll probably continue the Druid stuff… next month or so?
