What’s in Karius’ Closet?

February 26, 2010

Monday I posted a screenshot of Karius and Selveria dancing in purple dresses, and Arioch commented that Karius shouldn’t wear purple with his red hair. Well, he doesn’t care, he likes purple, and he’s here to show off his  collection!

First, we have the Lovely Purple Dress that he wore on Monday.

Yeah, ok, I admit that’s a little scary. How about the Festive Purple Dress?

I suppose putting a tabard over that would at least hide the padded upper chest section, eh?

Robes of the Lich, from Razorfen Downs. These were his favorite robes for a loooong time.

Ebonweave Robe, lovingly crafted by Schubert.

Skyweaver Robes from 25 man ToC. I believe it was his first 25 man drop, so he was quite proud of them.

Not everything is purple, though. He still has his Civinad Robes from a Gnomeregan quest.

Yeah, he looks damn good in that one.

He also still has this one, which was a drop from a rare mob in Duskwood. Why aren’t there more green robes? Because green really *does* go well with his hair.

And finally, partly because I think he looks totally hot, and partly because I just want to hear Lore groan about how much he hates the T10 helm ….

So, what’s in YOUR closet?

Sarth & Omen: You Asked For It

February 24, 2010

Ok, time for a response post … fortunately, I have screenshots that I wasn’t sure what to do with, and recent remarks from a couple of friends pretty much ensured that they would get posted, so .. here we go!

First, as Lore mentioned in the comments section yesterday, he and Karius got into a pug for 25 OS3D on Sunday before our first ICC raid of the day. I think we raided that day from 12:30pm server to … well, my last one was ToC25 at 8 server, but he hit one more ToC25 after that, so … yeah, we’re nuts. :p

Unlike normal where he usually rolls something awesome like 4 (last night he lost a cloak on a roll of 4 vs. 5), Lore rolled 100 on the drake … but so did two other people. His number on the re-roll was more typical of his usual rolls. Oh well, at least we got our achievements and titles.

Second, as Lajos mentioned briefly in one of his posts this week, Kaly tanked Omen to help him complete his Elder title. Zarchius happened to be hanging out in Moonglade waiting for someone to kill Omen, also, so I gathered them both up along with Shalae and a random hunter who was in the area, and we went in for the kill. However, as Omen is drawing his last breath, I notice a poor little Tauren druidess who is flagged for pvp … and then see her go down under a missile barrage. Lajos, being the nice guy that he is … tries to blame Zarchius.

He should know by now .. I screenshot almost everything. I may not have one of him actually casting arcane missiles … and he can always claim that he turned his pvp flag on but didn’t actually attack anyone, and probably get away with not taking the blame … but that’s fine, either way, this shot proves that Zarchius didn’t do it. So there! :p

I’m taking the day off tomorrow to get some things done, so expect the next post on Friday. It will be a very special edition, don’t miss it!

No More Pink

February 23, 2010

So … you remember last week when I posted about the awesome pink tabard? Yeah, well, there’s still a WHOLE WEEK to go in February, and Lore already changed it. Jerk. :p

And yes, I did threaten to gquit if he messed with it, but, well …

I guess as long as Baltok is wearing one, too, I can live with it.

So … our Saturday night ICC25 group got to the same place we usually get … Rotface. We made good progress on him this week. I think we had him down to around 1.3 million once or twice, but just couldn’t quite get there. Aaaaaaaaannd, then someone had to afk for 20 minutes again. So Selv and I put on our purple dresses and did our ‘die Rotface die!’ dance.

That dress makes it look like I have man-boobs. 😦

We never did get him down, but progress is progress. We’re getting closer. Oh, and I got this super sexy Greatcloak of the Turned Champion off of Saurfang, so that replaced one of the three 232 items I still had equipped.

Our 10 man group went back in Sunday afternoon. We’d killed everything up to Rotface on Wednesday evening, and worked on him until the trash respawned. So this was a good chance to start fresh right on him and be focused on the fight. We had a couple of tries that were soooooo close. Like 400k close. After a couple of hours though we were getting sloppy, so we took a five minute break to clear our heads. And when Lore and Hart call a five minute break, it’s a five minute break .. not a 20-30 minute break. We were clearing the ready check before the pizza timer had counted down all the way.

We had a couple more bad tries, a couple more decent tries, and then …

It was the first time any of us had downed him, so we were pretty excited. It wasn’t easy, and took a fair amount of luck … it’s not like we’re going to be able to walk in and one shot him next time. But just having done it once is worth all the hours and repair bills. Any of you reading this that were along on the kill, congrats and great job! Let’s do it again next week. 😀
