Gone Fishin'

Hello you buggers.

Is been a helluva run these past few years, hasn't it? I's gone ta many places, I's hit a lotta muggerflunpers with me axe, and I's met a whole lotta exotic wimmens. Not bad fer a simple orc from Durotar. But I think the time has come fer me ta hang it up. I may have a thing ta say from time ta time, but in general me blogging days is done. So on behalf of Kinnavieve, Danger Mouse, Palintera, Galertruby, Vyprania, and everybody else, I says thanks fer readin', thanks fer the comments, and thanks fer the good times.

Take care youselves, and keep findin' yer fun, whatevers that may be.

...There can be no suitable tribute to remember you by, sir, so I will not try. Thank you for the good times.

Stephi said...

/hugs teh Ratters.

Figworth said...

Ratshag. You've always been someone who I've held in the highest esteem, and I've looked forward always to seeing an update from you. Thank you for sharing with all of us your wit, humor, and originality. Wish you the best.

LifeDeathSoul said...

*salute* *bow*

So long, farewell :) It's been one helluva fun ride reading your blog. Best of luck in all of your future endeavours :)

Angelya said...

Thankyou for making me laugh :D

I'll miss you and the team... take care!

Pike said...

/salute one of the funniest bloggers evar

I plan on opening up avatar commissions again soon, you know you're always welcome to get pictures of the gang, even if you don't write about them. I loved doing yours. ^_^ /hug

Manny said...

Thanks for everything, Ratshag... you will be missed greatly.

Mister K said...

There will always be those of us who need more rage.
good luck

Grimmtooth said...

I will keep this feed active in the reader "just in case".

And with this, the number of original WoW blogs that I read is reduced to one still active. Shazbot.

You have been an inspiration and a joy, Ratters. Thanks for the good times.

Commander Kaji said...

It seems very abrupt. I hope everything is okay with you.

Lerali said...


We'll be here should you ever come back.

ComputerSherpa said...


Gonna miss you. Nobody blogs quite like you do. Hope you'll be back someday. :-)

Cap'n John said...

You write fuggin well for an Orc, I mean I heard you all was illegitimate but you sure ain't; you can read & write with the best of 'em.

Happy Hunting to you, says I.


Bloodshrike said...

Hey Ratshag,
I may not have commented much on your blog, but I've considered you and BigRedKitty among the top bloggers out there.

You came up with an original way of handling a blog that I applaud, making every post interesting and fun to read.

I wish you well in WoW and real life.

Saresa said...

Awww Ratters, we will miss you! Hope you have fun out there in the big bad world, doing whatever it is you are doing to fill the time you would have spent here.

Make sure you pop in to BA chat or something and say hi, OK? (of course, you probably still do... while I am sleeping lol)

Best of luck!

Unknown said...

It's always been fun reading you, Ratshag.

I hope you have a peaceful, relaxing fishing trip.

Mars506 said...

Figworth's comment pretty much sums up what I have to say. Considering how much time I spent playing WoW (I quit a long time ago), your blog still proved vastly more entertaining in comparrison. Your stories and your team will very much be missed.

Best of luck in all your future endeavors!

Sephrenia said...

You were one of the first blogs I read and you inspired me to start my own. I absolutely love your writing and every time I look at my blog feeder if there was ever a post of yours, it would be guaranteed to be the first thing I read. When you actually commented on MY blog, I was in heaven.

So long, and thanks for all the fish. Enjoy what you do, however and wherever you do it.

Softi said...

Well miss you! /huggles

Dechion said...

What can I say?

I'll be sorry to see you go. The big bad interwebs needs more folks with the sense of humor you have always written with.

You shall be missed.

Thankee kindly for the laughter.

twww said...

Thank you for the many smiles, laughs, the tear or two, and the expansion of my vocabulary.
Your voice(s) will be sorely missed.

Fare thee well.

Rusty said...

Hey Rats Hag, sorry to see you hangin' it up. Best of luck in your future endeavors.


StaggerLee said...

That is sad news ..

A great original mind of the Interwebs will be dearly missed.

There are great bloggers in the wow blog'o'sphere who will now have to compete for the top-spot.

Bah - sod it! I'll stay in denial and keep you in the reader

Anonymous said...

Very Sad indeed, good luck and God Bless. :)

Jezrael said...

Awww Ratters Noooooooo :( This is a sad day. I always look forward to reading your blog posts.

I hope you will keep writing even if it's not here because you certainly have a talent for it.

All the best, in game and irl :)

PhiLogical said...

I always enjoyed reading all of your adventures. Take care and good luck in all of your future endeavors.

Kayeri said...

Ratters, I will miss you greatly! Your blog had such a lovely original take that not many achieve. I do hope the occasional thing does occur to you since I hate to lose track of such wonderfully talented people.

Carrie said...

My feed reader will never be the same again without ya, Ratters. You were the first "official" WoW blogger to come over and say hello, I won't ever forget that. You (and, for me, Galertruby) will be sorely missed.

Good luck with whatever it is you're going off to do, ya great buggerglumper!!

Keredria said...

Aw Ratters... but think of the WOW ladies... what will they do without Maurice! Our lives will be so empty!


Tyben said...

Oh no! Such a sad day.

Kelmar said...

Godspeed Ratters, Godspeed.

Unknown said...

Jess is a sad tank today.


Stop said...

Adios, Mr. Shag. I'll see ya 'round when I see ya.

Euripides said...

You'll be missed. Thanks for all the excellent posts.

Willowbear said...

I'm sorry I can't consider this a true good-bye until I've heard from all of the team. At least have Galertruby say a few 'words'.

Take care and fair winds.

Nightravyn said...

::hugs Ratters:: You better pop into the chat room from time to time (if not more often than that)!

Anonymous said...

A huge loss to the Orc community, blogging community and drunken singing community.

Thanks for the laughs Ratshag (and the rest of the team)

Bell said...


TJSunday said...

What? Wait, what?


K, so the temper tantrum isn't working... then I'll just say that it's been an honor, my dear. You'll be sorely missed.

Pixelated Executioner said...

Farewell, Ratters. I'll miss your posts - you had an awesome sense of humor, and a rare gift in being able to present it so well. I always had a smile on my face when my reader had an update for you.

Good luck in the future, and thanks for all the good times.


Kusamoto said...

But but but...

I just got back! Where am I going to get guides as good as Galertruby's, or explanations of how Warlocks roll from Ellspeth, or my daily dose of Ratshag humor-in-a-can? WHAT'S GOING TO HAPPEN TO VYP???

It's been a pleasure readig your blog, Mr. Shag. I hope you are just going on hiatus and leaving the door open to be back at some point.

Eustashius said...

Farewell Ratshag,
I will miss you and may your RL avatar have a wonderful life!
very very best regards,

Taconite said...


Where will I get my Maurice updates!?!

Thanks for the wonderful blog about WoW. Like many others, I will sing your praises for creating such a funny blog and how consistantly you were able to maintain your character's voice(s). While I did not comment a bunch, it was always nice to get an update from you.

Thanks for all the fish. Take care and good luck in your future endeavors.

Unknown said...

Thanks for all the great posts, stories and songs!

euripedes said...

*spit take*

Fwuh whaaa? Nooo! D:


To quote my evil twin:

"You'll be missed. Thanks for all the excellent posts."


Jong said...

gl hf.

I really enjoyed your blog.

Ruune said...

Cheers to all the gang and all the best for the future.

Leafshine said...

(continued) ooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo!


Avaric said...

Aww, man. Not another one.

Baila said...

In case you haven't realized it, you are the best! Have as much fun with whatever you do next as you've had blogging WoW.

Love you!

Author said...

Awww, I really loved your writings. Gonna miss your great charismatic orcy self.

Moose said...

Going to miss reading your stuff Ratters. It was always a treat seeing your page pop up on a feed. I'm just glad I work alone on night shift so no one ever saw me nearly fall out of my chair when I read some of your posts.

Anonymous said...


Tam thinks you weren't half bad for a greenskinned primitive.

And I'll very much miss your blog.

Larísa said...

So time for you to just enjoy the game?

You deserve a rest although you'll be missed.

Thanks for all!


Dorgol said...

You didn't write much, but what you did was great.

Good luck doing whatever it is you do...

Khol Drake said...


You, sir orc, are and will always be an inspiration. Thanks for all the stories and the laughs.

Unknown said...

In the absence of any evidence to the contrary, I am going to assume that the wit, creativity and talent of Ratshag's real-life avatar has earned him a lucrative writing contract.

I say, he's so busy writing the book we will all fall over ourselves to buy... he simply doesn't have time to keep the blog going.

Of course I, too, am leaving "Need More Rage" in my reader. Forever.

Aboo said...

You will be missed sir. Like most here I will keep your blog "on my list", if only to remind myself of times gone by.

Loved your humor, your creativity and your originality.

Good luck in life Mr. Ratshag.

You will be sad to note that you posted your last post on my freaking birthday. Thanks for the present! :)

BethE said...

Thank you very very much for all of the work and posts that you have made. You inspired me to create my lady orc warrior.

phoenix said...


It's been a heck of a ride, sir.

Faydre said...

You'll be missed Ratters

Carlath said...

Longtime reader, first time poster. Ratters and co. have been a riot and a good read; thank you, and best of luck.

Anonymous said...

All the best to you, you will be missed, even on the other side of the pond.

I'll always wonder what happens with Maurice.

Heidi, Norway

Townes said...

Thank you for giving me some great big laughs.

criscopolo said...

i've been reading for close to two years but i've never posted. your blog is probably my favorite blog of all time. good luck to ya in your next adventures.

Anonymous said...

The interweb won't be the same without you, Ratters.

Good luck with where ever your adventures to take.

And...has anyone told Jaina?

Anea said...

I'll really miss seeing your stuff in my feedreader. I always read your articles first <3

laura said...

You'll be missed, but thanks for sharing with us.

Shotgunpete said...

Can I have dibs on Jaina Proudmoore?

Game Dame said...

Oh noes. One of my favorite all-time, all-topic bloggers is a blogger no more. Ratshag, thanks for everything you did for me in-game and on my blog. Yours was the very first WoW blog I found, and the first one on my RSS feeder that I couldn't wait to read every day. I'm sorry to see you go, but I completely understand that when something is done, it's done. Take care and keep me on your email list if you ever need me for anything.

Unknown said...

Dadburnit..... I hate to hear this. I'll miss you and the staggering amount of laughs I've gotten from here. Perhaps Galertruby can explain what's going on?

Anyways, take care Ratters. We'll keep the fire burning for you.

Ravageclaw said...


Thanks for enlighten us with your unique perspective.

mmorpg games said...

May the real life provide you with as many joy as you provided your readers.

Siobhann said...

Thanks for all the laughs, Ratters! I have to say a special goodbye to Galetruby who always made me smile even if I couldn't understand a word she said.

Anonymous said...

It is rather interesting for me to read this post. Thank author for it. I like such themes and anything connected to them. I would like to read more soon.

Thank you so much for all your great stories !

devotchka said...

I only just learned about your blog sometime in the last 6 months, but I enjoyed it so much I went back and read all the old stuff. Gotta admit I'm curious why you quit, but that's your business. I hope you will return to blogging sometime - if not here in character then perhaps in another way, like BRK did. I enjoy your writing very much!

Frostshawk said...

You will be missed, oh great one.

Lok'tar O'gar! For the Horde!!

Silence said...

I've started reading your blog only lately while on school, and you made me laugh more then once.
I'll miss you
Thanks for the good laughs!

Anonymous said...

Well, some time has gone past and I saw your TNB banner on a blog, so I thought I'd drop by.. I was aghast that I hadn't said goodbye.. I could have sworn I did.

Anyway, hoping this comment find you in good health and happy with life away from the blog...

Ohh and Happy New Year!
