standing at the back in my sissy robe


A brief guide to some of the Serious and Important World of Warcraft terminology used in this blog.

DPS Demon (n)

The creature that sits on your shoulder urging you to pull.  With pyroblast.

Hemo (n)

Healer-emo, fear of being solely responsible for a wipe, suffered by even the best of them.

Pissy Fit (n)

The hissy fit of a holy priest pushed beyond the bounds of endurance.  Did you just ask him to heal your pet?


A WoW obscenity, being the sound your character utters as he falls off a cliff or runs straight into the maw of a boss because you left auto-run on.

Tangst (n)

Tank-angst, fear of losing aggro, suffered by even the best of them

Tego/Hego (n)

Tank/Healer ego, conviction of awesome, dangerous if left unchecked.

Standing at the Back in a Sissy Robe (n)

The practice of being a healer.

Wannabe-Hardcore (n)

The lowest of the low, the type of player who desperately wants to be perceived of as hardcore and goes about it by posturing, making other players feel crap about themselves and whinging loudly about casuals ruining the game for everybody.

WoWcock (n)

The WoWcock is a gender neutral appendage you should never feel ashamed of whapping out in public.

WoWcocking (v)

1)    The practice of displaying one’s WoWcock in public, inviting admiration and comment.

2)     A pitched battle between two mighty WoWcocks as they go, ah, head to head.



  1. Hilarity. Pure, epic hilarity.

  2. Oh lord, just stumbled over this part.
    Why Webster hasn’t picked you up is a wonder. Also, as an old healer (priest, – though dwarf), I know all about hemo, hego, pissyfit and standing in the back with my sissy robe. I just never had the vocabulary of putting it into words, thank you 🙂
