500

March 24, 2015

Guess who hit 100?

Yes, I KNOW the last character to ding was also a DK. But Kirgra and Arelin play much different from each other. She is specced dual wield frost, he is specced unholy. Frost is … easy … which can also cause it to be boring. Cooldowns? What is that? Burst? Bah. AoE! To be fair, all classes have had their number of cooldowns drastically reduced. But still … I keep reaching for my old raise dead button and missing my old temporary ghoul. Sort of. I mean, I have mini-Tormmok now I guess so it’s all good.

And Pepe. Yay Pepe!

100 x 4

Arelin was already leading the race to be the next 100 before he got the camera. He got the lens not long afterwards, allowing any of my characters to take selfies, but since he’s the one who obtained it, he gets the privilege of leveling and then completing the Field Photography achievement.

Once he dinged, he upgraded his garrison, built his boombox, did Harrison Jones’ quest since he was his visitor of the day, and did normal Skyreach for the first incarnation of his ring. He’s ready to do the heroics he needs for the quest, which hopefully will gain him the 3 ilevel he needs to get into LFR. He decided he wasn’t in the mood for heroics though, and set out to get started on the photography achievement.

His first stop was Booty Bay …

on the way to Onyxia’s Lair.

From there he hearthed to the shrine in the Vale of Eternal Blossoms …

took the portal to Dalaran …

and finally, 3 expansions later, beat up his former master.

Stay tuned to see where he goes next!

New Stuff!

February 26, 2015

So how is everyone enjoying the patch? For the collectors like me it has been awesome so far … new pets, new followers, new toys, the jukebox and all of the music scrolls to go find … plenty of things to keep me occupied. There are even new missions that award archaeology pieces. This is good.

Van went to Black Temple for pets, and got frozen in mid-swing in a nice pose.

Between collecting all of the new things, though, Sanbec still found time to finish off that August Celestials rep so he could learn Alani.

Mount up!

As far as the new belf models go … I’m not excited about them but I have no problem with them, either. Much like the Forsaken, they are close enough to the originals as to not distract me while I am playing.

Lots ‘o Lovin

February 20, 2015

Yeah I know Love is in the Air has been over for a few days now, but I’ve been busy!

I finally bit the bullet one night and used the new group finder tool to join a group doing the achievement to get the new toy. And I have to say … that thing is SUPER convenient for getting things done! I was very surprised at how easy it was to find a large group and get in on the action within seconds, no waiting.

One person was ‘it’ and went around the circle. As that person went around targeting each person making up the circle, they would use their item on them and either jump or say ‘used’ to let them know they could move on to the next person. The stacks fall off after 10 seconds if not reapplied, thus the need for many people and a good system. The person in charge kept a list of people who still needed to be ‘it’, and would mark the person who would be next with an ‘x’ so that when ‘skull’ was done, they could jump right in and keep the circle moving.

It did take awhile because of the number of people involved but it was easy and actually a pretty good time.

In other news that sort of fits with the theme, Karius and Kalyon finally finished their joint effort to create a Vial of the Sands for my good friend Bocat.

In exchange, she helped me get Alani because she seems to enjoy farming skyshards, but, I don’t have any pictures yet because even though cloud serpent riding is account-wide, the mount still requires August Celestials rep to learn, so Sanbec has been visiting Pandaria to do dailies. :p
