Hello 2017

January 17, 2017

Yeah I know, we’re already 17 days into the new year and here I am *finally* posting. But I figured I should at least toss up an update on how things are going.

WoW
Oranis got a legendary in one of his emissary bags finally, Marquee Bindings of the Sun King. These give a chance for your next non-instant pyroblast to deal 300% more damage after consuming hot streak. Normally I NEVER hard cast pyro, using it only with hot streak. But this certainly makes it worth it, even with only a 15% chance. I still won’t usually cast it mid-fight when I’m running solo, preferring to use it to pull the next mob. Coupled with my favourite trinket, the Devilsaur Shock-Baton which slows the enemy when it procs, most things burn to ash without even reaching me.

Junahu finished her hunter campaign so I am essentially done with her. Kerick and Hunahuna, who reached 110 over the weekend, are both working on their campaigns and did the World Quest event over the weekend to get the bonus rep and the 5k resources. I suppose I should get back to work on leveling someone else to follow them. I think Kroy and Sanbec are probably the furthest along.

Hearthstone
I posted awhile back that I was having problems deciding what to craft next. I finally decided on Tirion even though I’m not really playing paladin right now. Anyone who has been around this blog for any length of time will not be surprised, though, as I am a longtime Tirion fangirl. It just seemed wrong to not have him in HS, especially since they killed him off in WoW. 😦

Summoners War
Who … what? This isn’t a Blizzard game! Heck, it’s not even a PC game. You’ll just have to bear with me because BigBearButt posted about this game a couple of times and got me hooked. No I mean really hooked. Like, I’m looking stuff up and making spreadsheets hooked. Yeah. So, probably none of you will know what I’m talking about but that’s ok.

My Dagora is 5* and over 23k hp so he’s able to solo Tamor 3 Hell to level up my other mons. I also have Belladeon and Konamiya 5*. I don’t know who to 5 next .. I have Ahman, Chasun, Shannon, Bernard as likely candidates .. Darion is still 3* but I could easily evolve and level him by the time I have the mats to do a 5. I have some other good 4s that I definitely want to evolve at some point, too, but I’m not sure they should be next .. Mikene, Platy, Shimitae. Honestly though it’s probably between Bernard and Chasun. From what I’ve read, I’ll need Bernard and Shannon for my giants 10 team for sure. Then again, I’ll need Mikene to fuse Veromos, so … yeah. Either way, whatever I do will be for building my GB10 team. I probably should have done Shannon instead of Konamiya but his cleanse is so useful everywhere …

Oh my, it’s been awhile since I last posted. It’s not that I haven’t been playing because I sure have! I just haven’t found anything new and exciting to post about, really. Other than this, which I had been dreaming of since Sunwell was current and I was a newb who’d never even raided before so had no chance in Azeroth of attaining it and its magical dream of not having to carry around ammo anymore.

Last week I was on vacation for the Thanksgiving holiday, so I took advantage of both the WoW Anniversary and Pilgrim’s Bounty to get some leveling done and get extra bonus rep on the world quests because of the world quest weekly which is so wonderful. Juna who is pictured up there getting her now-obsolete bow was the first one I worked on. She managed to finish the world quest weekly as well and is now flush with resources and working on her campaign. Kerick also finished leveling, albeit not until Saturday or Sunday I forget which, so he didn’t try to finish the weekly, but he also got work in on his campaign. He hasn’t been to Suramar yet, Juna has. I have a more hate than love relationship with that place. Juna did find it nice and easy to get over to the eastern part of the zone though with her network of Eagle aeries. She went there to do the other Murky world quest. I didn’t even know these existed, but she’s the only one so far who’s done Murky’s quests in northern Highmountain, so they didn’t show up for Oranis. She got an achievement after finishing that third one. It’s always fun getting achievements that you don’t even expect. Then when I cleaned out her bags later I found this Mrgrglhjorn toy in there.

aka, Juna goes to Highmountain

Being a Tauren hunter, obviously Junahu had to visit Highmountain first. Having lots of experience with Thunder Bluff’s elevators was a plus, although the ones at Thunder Totem are a lot more enclosed and should be harder to die on.

The quest areas were all pretty close together. Honestly, navigating Thunder Totem itself was probably the most difficult part. I had that quest to return the mounts to the stable keeper for a long time before I figured out there was a path back there up behind the main boardwalk. Doh.

I didn’t want to give Moozy back. Seriously is there anything more adorable than baby Tauren??

Then while I was running around I ran into my good friend Rakael so of course we had to stop and take some screenshots and stuff. We also did the Huln Highmountain quest at the same time, which was totally amazing and I don’t really want to spoil it here. Just make sure you do it when you’re there! You get it from Spiritwalker Ebonhorn.

Juna did almost everything there was to do in Highmountain, including all of Nesingwary’s stuff and the main questline to recover the pillar. I’d heard scary stories of hour long dungeon queues, but put her in it anyway figuring I might as well, and it popped instantly! Hm, maybe those stories are for heroics? Anyway, I like Neltharion’s Lair quite a bit. It seemed to be just the right length and wasn’t terribly overburdened with trash. This screenshot is not from the dungeon itself but from the questline leading up to it.

As for Dargrul the Underking himself, well … the drogbar are seriously one of the coolest races we’ve seen. I mean really, how awesome is this guy?

I think Highmountain is my favorite zone so far. Granted it’s also the only one that I have ‘finished’ (I still have quests there but I’ve done all of the things for the achievement) so we will see if it stays on top after I’ve done some more elsewhere.

Ashbringer and Titanstrike

August 31, 2016

So I finally got to log on after work last night, by which time two of my friends were already 110. Crazy people! But they raid so … they have other priorities. My main goal at the moment is to get everyone their weapon and class hall. Or at the very least to get their Dalaran hearthstone. There will be a bit of spoiler stuff down below so if you don’t want to know, stop here.

Ashbringer

Obviously Kerick is first. I had a hard time with this. Partly because all of the green fel stuff on the ground makes my puttering old graphics card almost suffocate, and partly because of the content.

I don’t want to be Highlord. I’d be okay with ‘Acting Highlord’ while Tirion recovers, or even taking over as Highlord with him retiring, but I’m not ok with his death. I know, I know, he’s not exactly young anymore and it had to happen eventually, he’s only human. But still … If they wanted to make me actually care about kicking Gul’dan’s loser ass, they found the way to do it. I know there are plenty of people in the playerbase who’ve made fun of him over the years, but he’s always been special to me. Kerick has always tried to live up to what he’s seen in Tirion … the willingness to make sacrifices for what he knows is right, like befriending Eitrigg; the inner strength to keep going and believe in the Light even through the things that happened with his son Taelan; etc. He was even willing to trade places with Bolvar on the Lich King’s throne. (Oh dear Bolvar, that’s another one I’ve never quite gotten over losing.) I’m sure Tirion had many regrets, but he buried them and fought on. Now all we can do is pray that he rests peacefully, and fight on. And, of course, seek some vengeance .. we are, after all, retribution paladins!

Titanstrike

I must admit, despite the wonderful quest and lore that came with this, I don’t feel any special attachment to the Titans, or Mimiron, or Thorim, or any of it. I do, of course, love love love Hati. Now Juna can go to bed sandwiched between her canids, much like I do every night. Except mine are battle pet sized and don’t have lightning arcing across their bodies. Anyway … she got a new mog to match the colours of the gun because I didn’t have anything in her collection that really went with the pets yet. That’s a project for later on, as is getting the skin that turns the gun into a bow (unless it requires pvp).

She also bought the tomes in her class hall that lets her pets play dead, which was really fun. She was running around the lodge while her two wolves just laid out on the floor. I didn’t get a good pic though because it was pretty dark in there. Oh well. Plenty of time later. 🙂
