Third Time is a Charm

February 4, 2014

…. or not. My dps improved a lot, I’m over 100k now. But 110k just isn’t enough. We got him close a couple of times but couldn’t do it. So I stepped out for someone else who could do more dps and they got him down. Well, I did warn them coming in that I’m not really cut out to be a heroic raider. (Ok fine, it’s normal Garrosh, but still …)

So I went and ran some LFR with Averry. And Ruekie! She finally got her little orc to 90, so we hit up some MSV. I took Kirgra since she could actually use upgrades in there. I don’t know how to frost DK anymore though. Guess I’ll have to read up on it before we go any farther.

Over the weekend, I finished leveling Alestav and moved on to a new pair. I have just three weeks of RaF left. I got this new pair to 40 before the weekend was over though, so I’m sure they will get finished. This is my new little druid Hunahuna and her hunter friend.

Sorry it’s so dark, they were in the bar starting a fight.

I told Averry that she needs a Hozen form since she has a double name like the Hozen who have successfully passed their rite to adulthood.

Balance is … omgwtfamisupposedtobecasting? It’s going to be interesting when she gets to 85 and I still have no clue because her huntard has done all the work. But I have plans for a troll druid to do the kitty/bear thing, so she’s just going to have to learn it.

Catching Up

August 1, 2013

So …. yeah. I’m still here.

I’ve been playing some Card Hunter, as I stated in my last post.

I’ve also been messing around in Neverwinter still. My rogue, Lorne Bloodspike, finally got that Heavy Inferno Nightmare to drop from a lockbox.

Unfortunately, once he hit level 60 and finished all of the questing zones, well … he has nothing to do. The max level zone of Gauntlgrym requires being in a guild to even travel there. I know, I know … what am I doing playing an MMO if I’m not participating in the multi-player aspect of it? But I really just want to mess around on my own. So I’m not sure what I’m doing there now. Although there is a new patch coming soon, so maybe it will bring me some new things.

In WoW, I am raiding with SR two nights a week, although we’ll see what happens when Final Fantasy comes out. For now though, we’re … 9 of 12 I believe? Not too bad, really. On Saturday nights I’m doing LFR on the Alliance side with Ana and others from the old Crits gang. It’s honestly been a lot of fun so far, which sounds funny coming from me, because I’ve made it no secret that I don’t like doing LFR. But with several people you know grouped, it’s actually pretty cool. Outside of that, I’m just working on my pet collection.

That’s it. I got nothing else to say right now. But it’s more than Lyss has posted. ;)

Isn’t It Ironic

Things You Expect to be Good

CRZ

Part of the reason I rolled Madorsa on Kargath was to avoid having to worry about being ganked while leveling. All the way up to level 44 she had a fine time just rolling along on her quests without a care in the world. Then … she arrived in the Badlands, where she hooked up with these mercenaries to take on the black dragonflight. She fit right in with them, actually …

WoWScrnShot_020913_210529

Before meeting up with them, she had to put up with the constant warnings in Local Defense that Bloodwatch Post was under attack. Apparently, going around killing the opposing faction’s questgivers is recreation on PvE servers. And it wasn’t even the same toons doing it over and over. What the hell are high level toons doing rolling through the Badlands all the time? Don’t they have enough to keep them busy? Maybe we need moar dailies for them to do. Anything but being asshole griefers killing my questgivers … I’ve never seen this happen on the PvP server. (That was NOT sarcasm btw)

Ok, back to our mercenary crew. The first quest was semi-phased … and by that I mean you don’t see any of the other people that are on it UNTIL they tag the named elite that you’re supposed to kill. And even though the quest completion only requires a kill rather than looting the body … no, you don’t get credit unless YOU are the one who tags it. Yeah … I got to watch that one respawn a half dozen times before I was lucky enough to get the tag in.

Seriously, since when is the Badlands crawling with people? Oh wait … NONE of them, not a single one, are from my realm. Well, that explains it. Thank you so much for CRZ Blizz. But wait! It gets better … (sarcasm alert)

The final quest with the mercenaries includes killing a dozen whelps along with a named dragon. With several people doing the quest at once, the whelp respawn rate is pretty fast. Owait … it’s not us level 45s causing the fast respawn … IT’S THE HIGH LEVEL ASSES WHO ARE KILLING THEM TO GET LEATHER! Yes … really. There was at least one from each faction there. A monk with that spinning crane kick thingymajig can aoe every whelp within a dozen yards … and keep me and everyone else trying to finish their Garrosh-damned quest from tagging any of them. I almost logged off in disgust, but, well, I’d already done that once earlier in the day when two Alliance ganked Van before he could finish off Karr the Darkener. I bet he dropped the freaking pet, too. Ugh, now I’m mad all over again. RAWR.

Things You Expect to be Bad

LFR

Love is in the Air. Yay, new necklaces! Well … for Kerick at least. I did the Crown Chemical bosses on Van first just as a warmup. After all, in his gear, I know I have nothing to worry about. Easy peasy so Kerick gets his turn. It also goes smoothly and oh look! The spirit neck drops, and none of the dps or tank need on it. So nice. Hmm … up to 456. Let’s see … I craft some pvp bracers. 458. Oh, I have VP and Golden Lotus rep! Ring .. nope, 459. Sell it back. Shoulders .. 460! We are in business! So, I take the time first to at least reforge stuff, stick a green gem in the shoulders, and of course … transmog all of it. (lol)

Alright, let’s queue this shit up. I halfway wonder why I am bothering but at the same time … well … *shrug*

Queue pops and we zone in. Someone drops food and a mage table and a soulwell. Someone marks the tanks. The main tank … oh fortheloveofallthatisholy … does a READY CHECK. /faint

Ok I could complain that all the dogs were tanked together and there were some unnecessary overloads. But considering that could be my only complaint for the run? Yeah, not complaining.

The group for the second half wasn’t bad either. The tanks weren’t marked and weren’t as solid (the warrior charged right in on Spirit Kings and was promptly flattened, the DK fell through the floor on Elegon) but we cleared the place and no one complained at all. One of the priests asked nicely for everyone to stack up on the guys that stack the turn to stone debuff so he could mass dispel. Most people obliged and trash was handled with no major mishaps.

I walked out of the full run with the cloak off Stone Guard, and the helm off Elegon (with my bonus roll), plus 2 Sigils of Power. Obviously I’m still stuck in Vaults until I get my ilevel to 470, but that’s a great start, and … well, it was kinda fun.

So, to recap …

leveling on the pve server over the weekend = painful
LFR on a Sunday afternoon = fun and easy good time

Did I get sucked into an alternate universe when I wasn’t looking or something? o.O

Mog This

June 25, 2012

Saturday evening I was bored so I did the unthinkable. I logged onto Wow. I know right? I was just gonna post Van’s auctions since I’m pretty much flat broke on that server. And then maybe do some Fire Festival stuff because … I need the money. But I only got as far as collecting my mail when Slice and Lyssi talked me into coming to LFR with them. Well, I figured Van didn’t need to see LFR since he’s in full 10 man gear, and I really, REALLY dislike healing 25 mans. So after a couple of quick vendor purchases, I was off to join the unwashed masses of LFR on my ungemmed, unenchanted …. FROST MAGE! Take that, elitist jerks. Yes, my dps was horrid. But I damaged the right targets, stood where I was supposed to, and won a helm. So w/e.

Zari … this needs help. I know you’ve fallen so far to the dark side that you are doing arch and mogs. Do something with this! ^.^
