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

Rag Legs

February 12, 2015

I’ve mentioned before how much I love recruiting new followers from the Inn. Well, Juna seems to have the best luck. Not only did she get Soulare, but now she also has “Doc” Schweitzer. For anyone unfamiliar, Doc is a character from the comic Flintlocke’s Guide to Azeroth, penned by Dave ‘Fargo’ Kosak before he was hired by Blizzard as a quest designer. If you’ve ever done the Alliance intro to the Twilight Highlands, you have met Flintlocke. Doc is … well, not your normal priest. Juna found him sitting around the campfire by the fishing shack and just had to see what he would say if she decided to talk to him. Well … he’s just a tad bit confused, which is pretty normal for him, actually.

Obviously, he must be kept active. Too dang hilarious. I mean, he’s so dang drunk, he doesn’t even realize he’s in a HORDE garrison, talking to a TAUREN. hehe!

Arelin finished up Talador, or at least, everything he wanted to do there, and is ready to move on to the Spires of Arak. I just felt like getting a good shot of him because, well … I gotta admit, given what some of the other *cough human cough* races’ graphic updates have looked like, I want to remember how good he looks now.

What about the post title, you say? Oh. Yes. Since Van has all of his bro stones done and can’t do the Foundry until LFR opens next week, he only went into Highmaul for the two bosses that drop things he still needs, and then went to play in some old instances instead. Since he never did get Firelord, he went to Firelands heroic and cleared that place out last night, finally getting to see Ragnaros’ feet.

The place is quite easy to solo now, so I guess he’ll be going back for mounts. Or maybe I will send a caster to get the staff … or a druid to get a kitty staff and embers. Hmmm ….

Ding! Ding!

December 16, 2014

A couple of level-ups to show off today.

First, my human warrior Sanbec became my second character to hit max level. He promptly upgraded his garrison of course and got his menagerie set up so that he could have pets wandering around just like Van does.

Speaking of pets, my adorable Elekk Plushie also dinged max level recently. I still have a ton of trainers to beat with her on the team, which is going to require leveling a few of my other pets first, but that’s ok, there’s plenty of time.

In other news, I received a bit of a shock last night when I logged on … I was the only person online in the guild. Say what? It’s raid night, where is everybody! Then I checked the guild message of the day. Oh. I see. The guild had been doing a joint mythic team with another guild. Obviously, if you’ve ever tried to do this you know how inconvenient it is to not have everyone in the same guild. I mean, it’s doable, but it’s just so much simpler when everyone is together in one. Rather than choose between the two existing guilds, they created a new guild for the raiding team. Makes perfect sense, but I knew it would mean the regular guild would be much quieter and eventually the alts that hadn’t moved already would also go. So for now, I moved back into my own guild. Might as well have access to my guild bank, right? Maybe later I will move into the new guild but I couldn’t really ask while they were raiding so I will wait until a non-raid night when people are available to chat.

One Mount Closer

December 2, 2014

I am almost at the 200 mounts mark. Thanks to my friend Shudal, I am now one closer. All I had left for the 25 man Ulduar drake was the Flame Leviathan achievement. Yeah, the vehicle fight. If it was something where I could just go slice something up with my sword, I’d have been done long ago. Sure, I’ve been told it was soloable and given advice on how to do it but I just couldn’t hack it on my own. So he invited me along when he went to collect shards and we got it done.

I still like the 10 man rusted version better (which I got at the end of Wrath or very beginning of Cata) but hey … it’s one more I can check off. 198 down, 2 to go!

Thanks again Shudal, you’re awesome! :D
