SO. CUTE.

September 27, 2013

I finally did it! It only took three weeks …

WoWScrnShot_092613_225429

And yes, I know that Zao has the least interesting moveset out of the mini celestials but I’m the type of person who picks the cutest pet first, especially since I know I can eventually earn them all. It was late when I finished, but I couldn’t just log out, I had to run around the island with him for awhile. He’s just too darn adorable.

It wasn’t until I had beaten the three champions and no achievement popped up for defeating all nine of them that I realized the tracking for the achievement is per character. Van has killed everyone but Mari, but I logged on late last night and just took the character that was already parked on the Isle. Oops. Oh well, maybe that group will be up again next week.

The last time I got as far as the celestials, I got stuck on Xu-Fu … mostly because I had no mechs left by the time I got there. This time I managed to beat Zao without using my Clockwork Gnome, so I had at least one left. Ok, let’s go consult Tamer Liopleurodon’s guide. If you haven’t been to her blog, you are missing out. So much awesome pet info! Anyway, based on her strategy, I dug through my available pet list and came up with a pair of Wild Hatchlings to toss in with my Gnome, one Gold and one Jade. Both of these come with Call Lightning. Whichever one I started with, I had it cast call lightning. I was hoping to dodge Feed at the right time with Liftoff, but missed on the first dragon so he did get one cast of it off. When that one died I put in the Gnome and set up a turret. Then I went ahead and swapped him back out, because my lightning was about to fall off and I also didn’t want him to die before his turret was off cooldown again. Fortunately, one of Xu-Fu’s big attacks missed so that kind of balanced out the Feed that hit. I was so excited when my Gnome finished him off that I totally forgot to get a screenshot.

Those of you still trying, don’t give up! I don’t have a lot of the ‘necessary’ pets leveled .. no Anubisath, no Water Spirit, no Crow or Raven, no Chrominius, no Darkmoon Zeppelin or Mechanical Dragonling (although my Zep is getting close) … persistence WILL pay off eventually.

Alt Week: DK

August 23, 2013

Late to the party here, but since this sounds like a fun project, I think I’ll join in! Most of you probably already know if you read other blogs, but World of Lae has proposed celebrating our alts one class at a time for 11 weeks, and this first week is DK!

This is a fun one for me because DK is one of my favorite classes.

Arelin

I wasted no time getting into DKs, making my first one the first day they came out, Arelin.

He was the first character I ever tanked on, clearing Naxx in Wrath, which was also the first raid tier I participated in. Then I … switched to playing Alliance for the rest of that expansion. But Shadow Rising was there on the horizon, dragging my troll mage through ICC right before Cata hit, and it wasn’t long into Cata before I was raiding on both sides. Thus, Arelin ended up tanking part of that first tier, including all of Bastion of Twilight, while I leveled my new main paladin on the side. Sadly, out of the DKs I will be talking about here today, he is the only one still stuck at 85.

Kalyon

On the Alliance side of things we have Kalyon.

He was originally a female Draenei but … I dunno, I just can’t play them. He made it to Northrend before I sent him to the surgeon and got him a makeover. He was the co-main throughout the last two tiers of Wrath, doing both tanking and DPS duties in both 10 and 25 man groups. His crowning achievement though, and still my best memory and most important event in my time in WoW, was tanking the guild’s first ever Lich King kill. He is and will forever be Kalyon the Kingslayer. I may be a healer now, but nothing will ever compare to the feeling of going toe-to-toe with the Lich King himself and coming out victorious after so many grueling months in ICC.

Kirgra

Last we have Kirgra.

Like Kaly, she isn’t the same as when she started out. But after a realm transfer, I decided that male troll wasn’t right for her, she needed a new start. So she became a female orc, which gave me an excuse to wear the slut plate that I’d been saving in the bank since Nagrand. She hasn’t done much, really, other than provide money, heirlooms, and mats to my army of alts on Kargath.

I have 5 level 90’s right now and 2 of them are DKs so … it’s pretty safe to say that I like playing the class. ^.^

This Just Will Not Do

April 18, 2013

For those of you who missed it, there was a rap battle between Garrosh and Varian on Sunday night at The Warchief’s Command Board. A poll was put up to determine the winner. Clearly Garrosh’s EPIC VERSE should come out on top. Yet somehow, some way, Varian is winning. I mean, There are even HORDE voting for him. Now, I understand that faction loyalties should not matter for something like this … IN THEORY. We all know that isn’t how things work in reality though, right? RIGHT?!?

FYV (1)

Ok. Maybe I was wrong. It seems that, just as there are Horde voting for Varian, there are also Alliance voting for Garrosh. Carry on then.

And if you have any suggestions for future matchups, make sure to drop them in the comments on the Command Board!

Just Hanging Around

March 20, 2013

I forgot I took these the other day when Kaly was on Isle of Giants. He found the vendor and bought some of the items that let you disguise yourself as a direhorn hatchling for 10 minutes.

WoWScrnShot_031713_161152

Yeah, those devilsaurs are not to be messed with. I came very close to killing the one hatchling that I pulled, but they require some concentration and paying attention to mechanics and stacks and whatnot. The direhorn babies I can eat a sandwich, chat with friends, pet the dog, etc. and never have to move or worry about dying as long as the dog keeps rolling on the keyboard. (Note: this works best if you keybind death strike to most of the buttons.)

As far as warlock news goes, she is more than halfway through Outland. The pains of CRZ Zangarmarsh were quickly left behind on Monday … with a little help from Averry.

(awwwww I can *just* see Mortimer flying there on the edge of the screen trying to keep up with us)

One Slave Pens and a couple of Underbogs put her well into 63, and a few quests last night before raid easily got her to 64.
