Oh Hi There

December 31, 2010

Yes, I’m back. I have absolutely nothing to talk about, really. I maxed my archaeology before I left. I even finished off a canopic jar. No mount recipe though.

Wednesday night when I got in I made the rounds to all toons level 20+ and collected their Winter Veil presents. Yes, even toons that I no longer play. Yesterday, before and after a trip to Throne of Tides heroic, I leveled several of my baby toons up to 20 so they could get the present that has the pet in it, too. Yes, I am fully aware that I am addicted to pets. My worgen druid only made it to 18 so she’s on the plan for the weekend, along with my troll druid and tauren warrior. Oh, and my little human hunter got a ghost saber .. and I think my tauren needs one too, so she may be making a little trip deep into Alliance territory to get one .. and a Withers as well.

That’s it. I have a lot of reading to catch up on. Real posting resumes next week. First raid of the expansion and last raid of the year is tonight! And then another on Sunday. Pretty sure that means I’ll have something to write about next week. hehe.

It is my LAST DAY TO PLAY for a week and they do maintenance? ON a WEDNESDAY???? /RAGE

Hm … I can start packing for my vacation, or I can go back to sleep.

Or I could go back to sleep, and still have time to pack and stuff after I wake up because I’m not going to sleep for 4 hours.

Finally … I’m not sure how long we’ve been working on our Ulduar drakes, but it has to have been at least 2 months. We started on it after the second LK kill in the Sunday/Monday raid group.  Let’s see, I posted about Firefighter on Nov. 1 so … yeah.

We weren’t ALL 85 yet. I was only 83 and two or three others were 84. But it’s no secret that we ‘outgear’ it. Hell, we outgeared it when we started working on it in ICC gear. I don’t know how anyone ever did this in the proper tier.  On one hand, I can see how people who have earned their drakes might think it unfair that others can go in with later tiers of gear and still get a drake … but on the other hand, I  mean come on, we’re not hardcore progression raiders, but we ARE raiders who have completed the normal mode of the final tier of raiding in Wrath, and we STILL had a hard time finishing it … and you still won’t be seeing a herd of these hovering over the city.

Me being 83 instead of 82 like last week certainly made a difference though, especially at phase 3. I still had my 2pc T10 bonus that makes my heals 35% stronger with Divine Favor up, so I popped that and hit Holy Radiance, the new AoE aura thing. My screen filled with big green numbers. It was glorious. I’m finding all sorts of places to make the best use of that heal, like on the first boss in Vortex Pinnacle. Hey, I gotta find something cool to use, since they nerfed Light of Dawn so hard its usage is back to being extremely situational. Ok, less talk, moar dragons.

Alright, off to hit 85. Only 12% to go.

Yeah so … I’ve been on vacation since Thursday, which means all playing, not internet browsing … and no blogging. So here’s the obligatory screenshot and I’ll be back to regular posts … next year?! Maybe a little one here and there but really, expect a lot of nothing (at least on the blog) for the next couple of weeks.

And yes, I DID ding doing archaeology. I’ve had a great time with it so far. Check out my little buddy!
