Sulfuras

April 17, 2014

Tuesday I finally got the last Blood of the Mountain that I needed to craft the Sulfuron Hammer. This weapon, combined with the legendary item Eye of Sulfuras that drops off Ragnaros in Molten Core, forms the legendary 2H mace Sulfuras, Hand of Ragnaros.

I sent the blood over to Kirgra. She grabbed the rest of the mats out of her bank and headed to Blackrock Depths. The dark iron can only be smelted at the Black Forge, and the hammer itself can only be crafted at the Black Anvil.

Once the Sulfuron Hammer was crafted, she mailed it off to Van. All he had to do once it was in his inventory was click on the Eye of Sulfuras.

And of course, we must have a couple of shots showing it off.

Hm, kinda dark in there. Go outside!

As You Command

April 15, 2014

Well, I made the mistake had the honour of reading our dear Warchief’s Liebster Award post, wherein he commanded everyone who read it to answer his questions. Therefore, I deemed it appropriate to follow his instructions. I do like my hair and it would get terribly messed up if he were to decapitate me.

1. Do you write a blog? Link it here if so!

If you are reading this, you know the answer to that question. Reputation Grind

2. What was the first Azerothian blog you ever read? Was there an early memorable post that hooked you?

Someone else mentioned Big Red Kitty, which was definitely one of my first and most favorite blogs to read. But the one that got me started on blogging was called Critical QQ, written by a clever and very entertaining troll mage by the name of Euripedes. To this day, my hunter Junahu’s precious Loque’nahak carries the name Euripedes in his honour.

3. Recommended reading, part one! Link and endorse three bloggers that you’d encourage your fellow readers and minions should check out.

Well, many readers probably know these, but that’s ok.
That Was An Accident!
Tome of the Ancient
WoW Misadventures

4. Recommended reading, part two — link one single post, from wherever, that makes you think “OMG, people HAVE to read this.”

It hasn’t been written yet. Someone has been slacking on the character profiles. Fortunately, it’s not really possible for Edwin to die before it gets done.

5. How long have you been reading the Command Board? What post or storyline was your jumping-on point?

I have been here from the beginning. At least, within the first two or three posts.

6. One more chance for shameless self-promotion: Are you on Twitter? Give yourself a non-Friday #FF here if so. Also feel free to recommend a few accounts worth following.

I have an account. I never log into it. 255 characters or whatever it is just is not enough for me. I prefer to use the blog for communication.

7. What class do you play on Earth Online? (Don’t try to deny that you play. I know my readers.)

Administrative Assistant.

8. What real-life ability to do you wish your Earth Online character could use?

I … can’t decide. Although … you know, my EO character DOES work at a zoo, so the hunter’s Tame Beast would be quite useful. She wouldn’t be allowed to just wander around with a large predator at her heels though, so maybe not. Teleport would probably be better.

9. Here, I’ll throw a bone to Utvoch. The age-old hoof question: Fem-taur or draenei girls?

Femtaur all the way! Go furry or go home.

10. Whose head would you rather have on a pike, Varian’s or Magatha’s?

Magatha’s. RIP Cairne :(

If the world were going to end (or change substantially) in, say, oh, six months or so, what would be your bucket list of things you’d want to get done first?

Would it be really strange if there really wasn’t anything? I hate having my routine thrown off, and that would seriously mess things up.

Ok Mr. Warchief, Sir, am I off the hook?

Tracking Complete

April 10, 2014

So, Juna has gotten all of the trackable hunter pets in Pandaria. She got super lucky with Hexapos and, um … what’s the basilisk’s name? Rockhide? Yeah. Both of them she found pretty much right away the first time she went looking. Bloodtooth and Bombyx in Krasarang were very easy to find as well. She spent the most time in the Jade Forest. Between the large phased area that Glimmer paths through, and the way Savage’s prints blend in with the forest floor, these were easily the two most difficult ones to track.

Now, based on what I had read, both at the Wowhead guide and at WoW Rare Spawns, it seemed like Patrannache would be the hardest one to find. And it is true that his tracks are really hard to see. But on about my fourth visit to the Valley, I spotted them. I tracked him through the swampy area east of the Heartland, but lost the trail just north of Halfhill. Fortunately, thanks to the many screenshots Euphyley has posted, I knew that his trail would take him directly under Darkhide. So, being a lazy sort anyway, I parked my behind near the big mushan and just kept a flare under him until the bird appeared.

Now for her next project. Let’s see … she has just over 100 Halaa battle tokens. She can go grind Oshu’gun Crystal Powder and get one of the two Halaa talbuks. She also needs to finish grinding Wolvar rep to get Sholazar Mercenary.

Also, Arelin’s transfer is complete. He has joined the rest of my crew on the Norgannon side, bringing Wega’s old bank guild with him. So now I have all of my professions together.

Juggs Deactivated

April 8, 2014

So … Iron Juggernaut. The damage on this fight on heroic is just stupid. I mean seriously stupid. Everything hits for 200-300k, and some of it is random damage that can’t be avoided. If you get hit by more than one thing at a time, you’re done for. I was one of the first to die on every. single. pull. Except this one …

WoWScrnShot_040714_221715

To deal with the incredible amount of damage, we … gosh, I’m almost embarrassed to admit this, but apparently it’s a strategy that has worked for other raids, and hey, he’s dead so … yes, we 4 healed it. I don’t think we would have gotten through it without the extra cooldowns.

In other news … they finally got me. I don’t know why I even bothered to resist, it was inevitable. After raid I always stay in vent and chat. Kash and the tanks were all playing D3 together while I did quests in the Storm Peaks on Giska. They were having so much fun! So I figured, you know, I don’t have to buy the xpac to check out the loot changes. So I logged on. The witch doctor went out and promptly died to the first pack of mobs she saw. Yeah. But I decided the barbarian deserved a chance, too, so I dusted him off as well. The first two mobs he killed dropped upgrades! He is level 35 and was actually on the final quest, so he ended up killing Diablo and getting two legendary drops. Yeah … let’s just say Van logged on to collect his treasure goblin pet before I went to bed.

I blame Lyss! She told me the Crusader is voiced by the same actor as Lor’themar. She tempted me! Evil warlock, you just can’t trust them! :p
