Looks Like Spring

March 21, 2014

Actually, no, it doesn’t. It snowed last night. Yeah …

At least in-game it’s always spring somewhere. Van got Norushen’s shield on heroic the other night, and since it’s green and shiny he wanted to show it off. So he has a new transmog. What better place to go green than at the farm?

Last night, finally, after at least three previous sightings of tracks but no bug to show for it, Juna managed to be in just the right place at the right time to capture Glimmer. Of course, the first thing she did was try out the water walking ability.

And yes, this IS three posts in a week. Truly a sign that I am in a good place right now in WoW.

Alt Week: Warrior

November 1, 2013

Wow, is this really the final week? Amazing how fast 11 weeks can go. It’s been a lot of fun!

Sanbec is the warrior I’ve spent the most time with.

WoWScrnShot_103113_221522

He didn’t start out as Sanbec, though. He started out as Valainie, a female undead. She was one of the first three characters I rolled. She was fury and I was HORRIBLE on her. I never really paid attention to the gear. Of course, my only experience previous to her was the hunter, and, well, gear mattered much less there since the pet was taking all of the hits. But I liked her. So …when I made the move to Alliance, she was one of the previously abandoned characters who got transferred to Winterhoof.

He made it to max level in Wrath and did a little bit of ICC, as both Titan’s Grip fury and arms. I may have even tanked once. It’s been awhile and my brain is old. I logged on last night in preparation of this post, and ended up going from 86 to 87 … as prot. I guess after leveling blood DKs, I just prefer the survivability for questing.

I have a couple of other warriors that are much lower level, like 28 and 35. Oslee is a male undead on Madorsa’s server. Naeladi is a female tauren on Van’s server. I want to level her just to mog plate on a tauren lady. Check these leggings out, I absolutely LOVE the way they end mid-thigh and you can see her spots. ^.^

It’s Faire Time!

April 9, 2013

I really love the Darkmoon Faire. Everything about it … the games, the profession quests, the fairegrounds themselves … is such a huge improvement over what it used to be. I have all the pets and mounts, but I still go. I’m working on upgrading heirlooms next, I think.

The timing for this month’s Faire was just perfect for Madorsa, as she moved from Northrend to Cata. Her enchanting leveled right up with no issues, but I got bogged down on the tail end of Northrend tailoring. Seriously, just to get from 410 to 420 so she could do the quest at the Faire to finish it off, each recipe took 9 bolts of cloth from 410 to 415 and a whopping 12 bolts (plus 12 infinite dust of which she has a near-infinite supply) for each frostweave bag to get from 415 to 420. Averry helped out a lot, sending me every scrap of frostweave he could dig out of his alts’ banks, but I still ended up spending a good four hours over the course of three separate farming sessions on Kirgra to get enough to finish it. If I’d had to also get enough to get from 420 to 425 I think I would have had to break something.

And yes, you’re getting screenies of Dyle again because I am so in love with his transmog.

The Star of My Team

March 27, 2013

So … I’ve been doing the Fabled Pets daily … pretty much daily. I think I missed the first couple of days when I realized I’d have to kill the whole circuit each day, but once I got teams made up to deal with them and got a route firmly set, it’s not so bad. I ran it last night after raid with no stops for anything else (other than picking up an Ancient Jinyu Staff out of the Slicky Steam near the caterpillar) and it took about 35 minutes.

In making the teams, it seemed like, since we’re only fighting a single opponent, the best strategy is to just load up on a trio of pets who are strong against its type. This gives us three teams since there are three types of pets to face. I gave them appropriate, if unimaginative, names: Aquatic Killers, Beast Killers, and Critter Killers. One pet ended up on all three teams.

The Dragonbone Hatchling.

WoWScrnShot_032513_235837

I put him as the anchor on each team, figuring there will be some battles where the third pet doesn’t even get called in, and then if I am fighting a different kind of pet for the next battle, I won’t have to heal in between since he didn’t take damage. This lets me use fewer bandages.

His placement on the aquatic team goes without saying. Flying pets are strong against aquatics. This is the team that it makes the most sense for him to be on.

WoWScrnShot_032513_202849

(Um, yeah, sorry about the fuzzy screen there. I’d just fished up some Darkmoon Special Reserve over at Stormstout Brewery.)

But what about the other teams? Why would I use a flying pet on them?

Well, beasts are weak against flying pets, and I don’t have 3 mechanicals leveled. Most of the time, the Clockwork Gnome and Pet Bombling get the job done on their own. Gorespine, though, tends to put them down with the bleed, so my little buddy often comes in for cleanup on him.

WoWScrnShot_032613_235817

For critters, I change out his first ability, replacing Slicing Wind with Thrash, which of course is a beast ability and is strong against critters. Nitun is a pain, but thrash can put him under quickly. As a bonus, Nitun’s abilites are .. beast abilities! So they are all weak against the flyer.

WoWScrnShot_032513_195051

(Averry, don’t worry about Mortimer, he’s … resting, yeah … he ate too much and needed a nap. He’ll be fine.)

To get your own Dragonbone Hatchling, just head to Dragonblight. They can be found in large numbers on the plains surrounding Wyrmrest Temple. Other pets that share the same abilities include the birds from the parrot family, the mini jousters from Hyjal, or the Fledgling Buzzard from Redridge.

Now all he needs is a name, it seems silly to have him be so important to my teams and not have one. Any suggestions?

(Yes, I am showing off Kirgra’s almost-done transmog at the same time here) :p

Oh yeah, as for the results of all these dailies … I have gotten either a battlestone, a pet, or sometimes even both, almost every day. I think there have only been 3 days when I didn’t get either one. I have gotten 4 Snowy Pandas, 3 Sunfur Pandas, and probably 8 stones. I didn’t keep track and I should have. Oops.
