Little Games

May 16, 2014

So, end of expansion, no new content for awhile. How do you keep yourself entertained? I know some people have lists of goals they want to accomplish before WoD comes out. Others log in, can’t decide what to do, and log out again. I’m somewhere in between those two. I have things I want to get done, but I have 14 90s and several other alts still being leveled. So how do I decide what to work on when I’m not raiding? Easy. I create little games for myself that determine which alt to dust off for the day. Let me tell you how it works.

I start in Hearthstone. I only play a couple of games there each day, basically until I win a game or have to log over to raid. If I still have a quest for the class I won with the day before, I’ll keep that class and deck. If not, I’ll choose a class that I do have a quest for, build a suggest-a-card deck, and go. Yes, this means I rarely play the same deck twice and am not likely to ever rise much above my current ranking. But I enjoy the randomness of playing whatever I put together with this method. If I lose, I go back to my quest list and pick another class, build another deck, etc. Whatever class I win with, is the class I play in WoW for that day.

‘But Rep!,’ you say, ‘there are only 9 classes in Hearthstone! What about your DKs and monks?’ Well, if I win with the same class two days in a row, then I play one of those. Simple, right?

Sunday I won with a hunter deck. So I brought out Juna to play. I haven’t devised a method to determine which alt of that class I play, I just let myself pick. If I win on hunter again soon, maybe I will play the other one instead of her. But Sunday I chose her, so she copied Vozzkaz and queued up for some LFR. In six wings, she got a trinket, two rings, ToT pants, and her sha-touched gun.

Last night I won with a priest deck. Priest decks are SO much fun. Anyway, this one was easy to choose because I only have one priest on each faction right now, no multiples. And, uh … I dunno, I just haven’t ‘felt’ Alliance this expansion at all. I did Operation: Shieldwall and some of the Thunder Isle stuff but …Jaina or Lor’themar … yeah. So I hopped on Paddey Dyle. And … queued up for some LFR! LOL. He’d done LFR in the past, clearing ToT multiple times and the first two wings of SoO once. But he’d never done anything from the first tier. So I started at the beginning, just for the achievements. Although, I think this Light of the Cosmos is probably a super trinket for him, even with a lower ilevel than some others he has.

In between queues, I worked on picking up tailoring recipes that he doesn’t have. I recently installed Ackis Recipe List. I’ve known about this addon for a long time but resisted the urge to download because I know me. If there is an easy way to see that I am missing recipes then I MUST go get them. This may still prove to have been a bad idea. Do you know how many Cata gem recipes Van doesn’t have? AAAHHHHHHHHHHH!

I ended the night with a late-night first wing of SoO with Averry, Ruekie, and … I believe Shen. Averry can yell at me if I’m wrong.

So, am I just really weird, or do other players have silly little rules and games too?

LFR Time

May 5, 2014

Friday night I was goofing around on my balance druid, working on her professions, and was just about to log and play some D3 when Prinnie pinged me and asked if I wanted to run some LFR. I figured that sounded like a good idea, so I asked which wing she was planning to do so I could log onto a character that can actually do the one she wants to do. Dyle has been waiting for his turn to get in on SoO from the beginning, so I grabbed him and … what? Who’s Dyle? Oh. Yeah. Dang server change. I keep forgetting. He’s still Dyle in my mind, so I’ve decided that his whole name is Paddey Dyle, that way he can keep the name he’s always had even though it doesn’t appear above his head anymore.

So, we ran the first wing and things went pretty well. I think. I don’t really remember much other than MIND SEAR ALL OF TEH THINGS. And not being able to kill enough things to clear my corruption on Norushen. /sadface

So we queued for the second wing. I ran around on the Timeless Isle while we were in queue. Then just as it popped Prinnie is all, ‘I don’t want to take it! Navi is visiting the server.’ Eh? Navispam??? Well, let’s go! So we dropped queue and headed to Mulgore, where we hung out and danced with Navi for awhile.

Then after she logged off we went ahead and did the second wing. Prinnie bowed out after Dark Shaman because it was late, but I went ahead and finished out the wing so that I would get the cheeve and be able to queue for the third wing next time.

Saturday, I apparently decided that I had so much fun in LFR that I wanted to do more. Except this time, I was on the shaman and was starting at the beginning. No, not the beginning of SoO, THE beginning, like, MSV. She used the same strategy of hanging out on the Isle between queues.

Vozzkaz seems to have AMAZING luck. She started the day with green neck, rings, trinkets, and weapons. The first wing, she got a fist weapon. The second wing, she got a neck and a trinket. In the first wing of Heart of Fear, she got another trinket. Then she didn’t get anything in the rest of that or in Terrace. But she got her second ring in the first wing of ToT, which was the last one I did. I figured six wings in one day was more than enough. She gained 20 ilevel. I think I’m getting the hang of enhance. I got ele boots in a bag in ToT though so now I’m tempted to get her an offspec. But still … spirit raptors! I’m not in a hurry to change just yet.

Alt Week: Priest

October 4, 2013

I’ve dabbled a bit with priests. Enough that I had two at max level in Cata.

Ragle

WoWScrnShot_100313_210851

Rags was the first. He was actually one of the first four characters I rolled, but he was a belf then. He got transferred over when I went to Winterhoof to play Alliance, and got his name changed to be anti-Elgar. I made him look just like Elgar, too.

Elgar, of course, was the GM of the Alliance guild Crits And Giggles, and is still one of my best friends ever.

He messed around with both healing specs, but shadow is really his thing. I mean, there’s nothing *wrong* with priest healing, and I enjoyed both specs. It just never really gelled for me the way paladin did though.

He’s an engineer, so he has fun with his transporter malfunctions.

And he also did one thing no other priest will be able to do again … he got his Benediction/Anathema.

Dyle

Dyle was rolled to see the new stuff in Tirisfal, Silverpine, and Hillsbrad after the Cata revamp. That project failed miserably when Arv rolled a goblin warrior named Dizzee.

Dizzee and Dyle ran dungeons together all the way up to Northrend, at which point Arv sprinted past me and I stalled out, leaving the old boy to rot in Dalaran for quite some time. But he eventually got leveled. I think he tried to heal a heroic once, but got a terrible group in Stonecore who blamed him when they overpulled and had stuff running everywhere uncontrollably, so he has never healed since then. Now he just goes to the Faire …

although he has leveled up to 87 so he could park at the shrine.

Since he’s 87 he will probably be the priest that gets to 90.

I also have a lowbie, Osler, over on Kargath. He’s around 26.

That’s it for priest week!

Patch Day!

May 21, 2013

I have absolutely nothing to say other than … NEW PETZ!!!!

However, since a one sentence post isn’t really a post, have some screenshots.

No, Mojo! Please don’t eat me. I’m nothing but skin and bones anyway … well, mostly just bones.

Babysitters really do not get paid well enough. Why don’t we have a Union?!?

WoWScrnShot_051013_184755

Fenris Isle is actually quite pretty … when you have the sun in your eyes.
