Blogiversary 5

February 7, 2014

Dear drivers,
Snow on the roads is not an excuse to ignore traffic laws. To the guy who didn’t even slow down for the stop sign on the corner by my house, you are an asshole. The neighbor kids wait for the bus on that corner.

Ok, on to the business at hand. Five years ago today, I wrote my first post….

actually, I don’t really have much else to say about that. How about we look at what I did this week instead?

Heroic Immerseus

So now I’ve downed 2 heroics, without killing Garrosh. Amusing, isn’t it? hehe. The trick on this fight is that the boss gets a buff which puts stacks of a debuff on you, and you spawn adds for each debuff … so the dps has to be careful to only get the amount of stacks that we can deal with, and then get OFF the boss and kill the adds. To do this, we all stack in the large area near the stairs, which means we get a TON of puddles there. Then in the splitting phase, people have to spread to their designated slices quickly enough to handle those adds, then come back in time for the next phase.

Well, we were all feeling so good after killing him, that we had a mammoth party while the raid leader was explaining the differences between normal and heroic for the Protectors fight.

I felt kinda bad for him, it sure seemed like no one was paying attention to him, but he kept right on explaining. We didn’t get it down, but we got some good practice on it and I’m pretty sure we can do it.

RaF Fun

Wednesday night I got my Tauren ladies through Thousand Needles and Tanaris. They’re all ready to go to Un’goro Crater tonight. They had a lot of fun hanging out in the Needles though. Between river boats, water striders, seahorses, and aquatic form, they had many options for dealing with the water.

Kovok!!!

So I was checking the AH on my Alliance server last night before heading to the Faire. There are always a ton of pets posted there, like 12 pages worth. I saw some things I was considering, like a Rascal-bot that was already level 20 and was under 10k, but then I saw this for only 6800 …

Now I can have Kovok with me wherever I go. He’s so cute!

Celestial Family

January 20, 2014

There. Finally finished getting the last of the celestial pets.

I never did recreate a set of teams for the group of tamers that had Wrathion in it. I never had enough humanoids left after beating him to also beat Yu’la, so I have always skipped the tourney on the weeks that his group of tamers is up.

I spent a good part of the weekend mining ore so I could gem and enchant my DPS set, crappy though it may be. There are some fights where we need one of the healers to DPS, and of course none of us really wants to or is good at it. So I’m going to give it a try. I’ve studied the stat priorities, the best use of talents, and the ‘rotation’ (although of course it’s a priority system rather than a strict rotation, which is pretty standard these days). Tonight we have the full raid time just on Garrosh, so hopefully we’ll get him.

In other news, I finished the RAF pair I was working on. Oranis is back to bank alting for now, mostly naked with his heirlooms stripped off and sent to the new lock. The guild hit level 5, partly due to the help of Trout’s belf priest Bartok, who hit 90 over the weekend. So the new group is an undead rogue named Alestav for the main account, and a lock to power through the quests because locks are OP. They are already up to level 38.

One last shot here, to show why I love both Kargath and my new computer. I never saw numbers anywhere near as good as these on any other server (for the lat) or on my old computer (for the fps).

LFR Pays Off

October 1, 2013

If you could only read one post on this site to get a clear idea of what type of player I am, this one probably gives the most accurate picture. I mean, I could talk about how Horridon dropped the Dinomancer’s Spiritbinding Spire that I had my eye on. Instead, I give you this …

I mean sure, I said something like ‘cool it dropped’ to my friend when I got the staff. But the pet? That got a ‘YES’ and a link. And a toon swap to my bank alt so he could go battle some little thing in the city and see it in action. Because we all know what’s most important, right?

Pets > Gear

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.
