Biggest Crit in WoW, Redux

Just over a year ago, I boasted about a massive crit I scored in a Wrath heroic.

Oddly enough, two folk have recently commented on the post suggesting it’s not a big deal.  And in Cataclysm, nah, it’s not such a big deal to get a 42k crit.  It still may not happen a LOT (depending on gear, conditions, etc.), but it’s not as startling a number as it would have been in Wrath.

With all that said, I’m updating things (with proof this time) that frost mages can still get some massive crits in PvE.  It’s just a shame this doesn’t happen more often to us poor PvE neglected frost mages. I think it’s only happened once or twice, pre Deep Freeze nerf.   (Yes, this is an old screenshot from February 20th, 2011.)

Anyway, kids, I won’t claim this is the biggest crit in WoW, as I’ve heard rumour of higher.  BUT it is from a heroic, so not as many group buffs.  Regardless, it’s still massive.  In fact, my ePeen is so massive that it blocks the sun.  Just LOOK:

112k Crit, baby! *flex*

Diamond Eyes

Okay, I stole the title from the latest Deftones album.  But it fits.  A little.  You’ll see.

I, of course, read Chawa’s post “Shattering Cairne“.  And I know how Pacheco feels about Cairne Bloodhoof‘s departure from the game.  And I also stumbled this post from Tam at Righteous Orbs.  (It’s a gooder!)

Essentially, most people seem kind of sad to see Cairne gone.  Or at least respected the character that Cairne was.

Now, if you read Christie Golden‘s book, “The Shattering: Prelude to Cataclysm“, you’d know exactly what happened to Cairne.  You may have even been like me, where you ended up liking Cairne even more after reading the book.  Also from the book, you would know the fate of Magni Bronzebeard – hence the title.  That said, similar to Cairne’s fate, the info could probably have been found elsewhere before the 4.0.3a patch.  Anyway, I even grew to like Magni a little bit after reading The Shattering.

But, I haven’t quite seen the same reaction to his fate that I’ve seen towards Cairne.  Admittedly, I haven’t looked that hard…but it has made me wonder: 

Has there been as much sorrow on the Alliance side? 

Are they as sad to see Magni go as much as we Horde were to see Cairne go?

Shattering Cairne

The Shattering is here.  (Patch 4.03a)

And I must share Jasra’s note ‘On Leavetaking’  because it’s captured what I’ve been thinking these last few days in Dalaran. I hope you have all said your own goodbyes there.

Sadly, there is one goodbye that I feel that I missed.

The Shattering is here.  And while I’m trapped at the office, I can’t help but wonder if Cairne will still be there….
