A Little Bit of Horde in my Alliance

September 30, 2009

Doesn’t he just look adorable up on that huge beast? ūüôā


Level 78 now, he was finally able to be effective in the Direbrew fight. I’ve already got his hit rating over 200. He’s exalted with the Valiance Expedition, and honored with Wyrmrest and the Kirin Tor, so he bought upgrades from both of them. He started on the path to Crusader, and did part of the Sons of Suck questline. The Time-Lost Proto-Drake spawned while he was nearby in Sifreldar Village, but of course, someone beat him to it…darn slow flying. So this kinda made up for that. Slow falling on a flying kodo is pure win.

Now he needs a name. My very first mount in the game was Juna’s Brown Kodo, named Ribeye. Maybe I should keep to the theme. Any suggestions?

I’m on a Proto-Drake

I’m not going to say much today. The screenshots will mostly speak for themselves.


I warned you that this one was coming. Yes, it was kinda fun, but I will likely never do it again.


Triple BM badness!


Would this ever happen on a PvP server?


Karius and Trout do some Oracles dailies.


Yes, Oracles dailies. Karius went straight to Sholazar after dinging 76 and ground out the entire questline. Trout came and helped down the lich for A Hero’s Burden, then we went and pwned some puppy man face.

More praise for Opp the Unstoppable: he came and did all the group quests that I had in Dragonblight, AND soloed the Amphitheater of Anguish in Zul’Drak. He acquired his new title¬†after I had wondered what it was like to have 30k health and asked if he felt like he was unstoppable. We even took down a rare elite in New Hearthglen and both got the Northern Exposure achievement. Thanks again Opp! You rock.

Karius now sits at halfway to 77. Can he make 78 tonight after the maintenance is over? Schubert better get to work making him some pvp gear. :p

Brewmaster Karius

Yay! Karius gets his first in-game title.


Juna should get hers, along with the Violet Proto-Drake, tonight when I get home from work.

Karius is halfway to being able to make portals to Dalaran. These final levels should go even faster now. I transferred the final mid-level holdout¬†from my original server, a level 48 undead warrior, faction swapped her to replace my level 7 human warrior, and mailed the Tome of Cold Weather Flying over to Karius. Merv was sure happy to get out of the stable and stretch his wings again. ūüėÄ

Those Wacky Winterfins

September 24, 2009

Karius had many adventures last night on the way to 71.¬† Plans were to hook up with Kittykat and do some questing together as he finished up Boring Tundra. Well … Kitty had some other things to do after work and was going to be late, so Karius went ahead and started without her.

I’d heard about Thassarian of course. Heck, the questline started clear back at Valiance Keep with his sister looking for him. So I’d been looking forward to actually meeting him in Northrend and seeing what he was up to. (I’d already met him previously in the Death Knight starting zone, of course.) Well, imagine my delight when Karius got to take the old boy’s charger, Dusk, out for a spin. He looks pretty good on her, eh?


Once I got to the final quest in the line, I needed help. I think I praised Opp somewhere in my last post. Well, he came to my rescue again, as Fanar the healy tree drood. The two of us headed into the (…. dangit! I know there’s a word for those floating necropol .. oh ….) necropolis. I talked to Thassarian to start it off … and Kittykat finally logs in and starts whispering me. LOL! Between that and an active guild chat, I¬†pretty much missed the entire¬†dialogue. Oy!¬†I will have to repeat it on Katia and make sure I can give it my full attention.

Once that was done, I flew over to Fizzcrank to meet up with Kitty and figure out what quests we were going to do. I thought all I had left was Coldarra, when she says ‘ oh! King Mrglmrgl!’ (sorry Trout, the toon is a girl, I’m going to say she … live with it until you get her sex¬†change done)

So we pop over to Winterfin Retreat, and before you know it, they put us to work babysitting.  What do you think, would you want this pair babysitting YOUR youngins?


¬†Warlock? What warlock?? Two-timing Mordune? Moi?? I don’t know what you’re talking about. /hides

Seriously, if another member of IHATEWARLOCKS ever stops by my blog, I am going to be tarred and feathered and forced to respec as boomkin.

Well, we returned the baby murlocs safely, and then came the really fun part where we get to dress up in murloc suits. This questline is a ton of fun by yourself, but really …. you HAVE to try it with someone else once. With two of you it’s absolutely EPIC.


It’s not all just standing around though … we did some dancing, too.


And some cheerleading.


And that wore us out, so we had to take a nap.


Alright, naptime’s over … let’s do it!


Once we finished that we headed to Amber Ledge so Kitty could catch up to me and be ready to start at Coldarra … but then some guildies wanted to do Direbrew, so he swapped over to Elgar and we headed there instead.

How to Heal – Make sure you use Mind Sear and … oh yeah … try to fit in a transmute in the middle of fight, too, if you can.¬† Here is a nice demonstration of the proper technique by Elgar.


Nothing good dropped. Boo. Back to Dalaran, and we have Wintergrasp. Hmm…Dangerously Delicious is the fishing daily. Time for Karius to complete his first one methinks. So he grabs the quest and portals into Wintergrasp. Rides over to the flight path, and sits down next to the lake, 58 minutes before the next battle…..he had only 6 minutes to spare when he finally pulled in the final Terrorfish he needed for the quest. But he got it done, and got a very special surprise in his reward bag!

Two Thunderbrew Lager please …


Ok, this is long enough .. and it was late enough when I finally went to bed. Tonight, it’s on to 72!
