Dynamic Duo

March 12, 2013

Yes, it’s actually my third 90, but the first two were both paladins, so …


So … you’ve just dinged 90 and have an ilevel of 438 … what do you do next?

A. get some crafted gear/buy gear with the points you have saved up already
B. do dailies and/or finish questing in Dread Wastes for gear and points
C. run some scenarios/heroics for gear and points

Meh. I’m a blood DK, I dun need no gear! Isle of Giants here I come!

Yes .. really. I sent him straight off to farm bones. Where Van with a 490+ ilevel had to use all CD just to kill a single direhorn hatchling, Kaly was at full health when his died. Sure, it took forever, but I was never at any point in danger of dying. I think I’ll try pulling two next time just for the hell of it.

My dino project was cut short by LBR time though. Since I was already on Kaly I just took him. Even though there were only four of us, we dispatched TotC in no time and decided to hit up Naxx and AQ for pets again. I’d been looking for a weapon to match Kaly’s T10 mog for a screenshot I have planned, and C’thun was nice enough to drop this fancy axe with an eyeball in the center that actually opens and closes.

Dang, I need to level a third class for the next achievement, but I was working on another DK … bah.

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! ^.^

It’s Blazing

March 8, 2012

So last night we went into Dragon Soul. Killed Morchok  again and Zari got a heroic weapon. Yay!

Arv suggested going for the achievement on Zon’ozz, so we had, um … someone else switch to heals (sorry, I don’t remember if it was Shady or Zarm) to help handle the extra bounces. Even so, it took a well-timed LoH and even a HoSac at one point to keep him up. Once we got past that 10 stack though the rest was cake.

There was some mention of trying Yor’sahj on heroic again, at which point several of us suddenly discovered that our connections were unstable. Just .. yeah. Arv linked the achievement for that one, too, but I don’t think anyone else was paying attention, because Ado called the slimes in the usual combinations. Maybe next week.

Ultradragon … ugh. We got so close. He’s going down soon. We finally gave up and flipped it back to regular, and Slice told me to dps. He solo healed it. We won’t talk about how much dps I did.

The rest of the night went like it usually does. Warmaster goes down … doesn’t drop my shield. Spine goes down … doesn’t drop my gloves.

(Arv and Van waiting for a tentacle to appear)

Madness goes down and … oh, what’s this? Reins of the Blazing Drake? Yes please! /roll

… Why do I roll *great* if we’re rolling to take some of Fayle’s gold, but roll like crap for something that I actually want and cannot buy with gold? Ha. Zuggie looks pretty cool on it though.

Oh yeah … remember a while back when the raid was looking at ladyboys between pulls? (Hm, I guess I didn’t post about it but I know we talked about it in the comments somewhere. If anyone finds it link it for me.) Anyway, they were comparing these dudes dressed as ladies to Fayle, saying that one in particular looked a lot like him. So I got this little note in my email yesterday:

So it’s been brought to my attention I look a bit feminine.

What do you guys think?

Be honest!


Run Away, Little Girls!

February 8, 2012

I haz tentacles.

(JPG provided by Sorak, Google it at your own risk.)

Yeah so let me back up a little here. Last night was our usual Dragon Soul run. Since we’re still doing normal to gear up all of our regulars and Arv has pretty much everything he needs, he brought his warrior. All night long, tank stuff would drop, Dizzee would get a nice high roll (even though he technically wasn’t rolling against anyone), and he would say “suck it Arv” because apparently he feels like he always has crappy rolls on his main. I half-heartedly rolled against him for the 2h mace off lootship, and mentioned in vent that I didn’t *really* want it because I’m kinda holding out for the sword off Madness. Didn’t matter, Dizzee rolled great.

Get to Madness and we make some pretty lousy attempts at it and are discussing calling it. Sorak is like, just one more pull guys, come on. Arv swapped back to the pally … he’d spent most of the night complaining about not having the same toolbox on the warrior anyway. Not sure if it was him being back on the more familiar toon, the infamous last pull of the night, or pure dumb luck, but we got a solid kill.

Aaaand the drops are … Maw of the Dragonlord, the awesome healing mace that Slice spent most of the raid being jealous of since I got it last kill … and my coveted Gurthalak, Voice of the Deeps, aka the Worm Sword.

I totally said “suck it Arv” in vent when I rolled that 99, too.  I’d feel sorry for him, but his warrior, lock, and hunter ALL got weapons in Dragon Soul in the last week.

I put it on right away and took a screenshot still in my holy gear while I was collecting my gems of non-epicness from the vendor.

Oh yeah, I also sort of got two pieces of tier for my ret set. Great timing, since I obviously was going to have to change my mog anyway. I want to show this baby off, not hide it under another skin! I didn’t quite have what I want lying around, and of course there was none of the set I’m eyeballing on the AH, so I had to make do with this for now. It’s not terrible, other than not having boots of the right color.

We’re doing Firelands tonight since DS is clear, and I think I have them talked into letting me try dps. So I started gemming and enchanting the stuff but had to go to bed before I was finished. I guess I better refresh my reading on ret priorities so I at least have something resembling the correct reforges. I’m looking forward to creating a whole bunch of these! …

One more thing … super big grats to my two favorite trolls, Stunnah and Zarigar, on their Destroyer’s End titles! Why didn’t anyone make fun of Zari for getting the title on his alt? You’re slacking bigtime, Sorak!
