Murkimus Is Here!

July 21, 2010

I’ve been trying to get a post out all day. It seems as if the full moon has taken effect a few days in advance, however. Crazy is an absolute understatement for the day I’ve had at work. Throw in my cell phone not charging overnight even though it was plugged in, and me forgetting to send myself screenshots for today’s post. So you’ll have to settle for a couple small paragraphs.

In case you couldn’t tell from the title, the Murkimus the Gladiator pets showed up in my mailboxes yesterday when the servers finally came online a few hours late. This is the pet you get from doing the arena tournament. He is amazingly cool, and makes cute little murloc noises when you click on him. Definitely worth the $20 and the six hours or so spent messing around on the tourney realm, making characters and playing matches.

Kerick got the Looking For Multitudes achievement and his Perky Pug last night after ICC, so he got two new pets total yesterday. As far as his ICC went … we downed Putricide! Kinda funny, because Kalyon downed him for the first time last week in this same run.

Ok, I gotta get back to work. I hate summer.

Tourney Realm Fun

June 2, 2010

Monday night there was no Classic Raid because of the Memorial Day holiday. So instead, I gathered up Fiaks and Lajos and we headed over to the Tourney Realm to get our 50 games in to qualify for the pet.

I had a warrior already created and talented/gemmed/enchanted/glyphed that Bell had helped me with. However, since Fiaks and I have been doing 2’s as tree/DK, I quickly put together a DK, figuring we might have a better time if I’m playing something I’m familiar with. Lajos had an afflock all ready to go, and though his real one is only level 60ish, he’d been practicing with this one.

Now, we kinda expected to do really bad. I mean, we’re going in there with no gear discrepancy so we’re relying on skill as our only advantage .. or disadvantage, as it may be. Our 2’s team is ranked 1260, so we have no delusions of greatness or anything like that. However, as it turned out, we were .. not too bad. We ended up going 19-31.

Two of the teams we beat had only two players. One of the teams was three naked tauren on sparkle ponies who didn’t even dismount. But that gives us 16 legitimate wins. We were happy with that.

This has nothing to do with the post but he hit 77 last night and he's hawt

Most memorable match? Resto druid/Afflock/Warrior. I believe in this case, me playing the DK instead of a warrior was key to our victory. It lasted 13 minutes … although it seemed more like an hour.  The arena was the Dalaran Sewers. Now, on the mage, I HATED that place. On a DK I’m like, yeah! Probably because on the mage I LoSed myself more than I LoSed the other team. So I chased the druid around and around, spamming chains, getting desecration down as much as possible, interrupting … he didn’t get many cyclones in, and he didn’t get to do much healing of his teammates either. Not that we were actually trying to kill his dps. We ran him out of mana, and then we ran him out of mana again (screw innervate) and eventually, finally, I stood over a dead cow. That was definitely our most satisfying victory.

While we were goofing around there, my guildies in Apathy were busy taking down Anub in ToGC10 for a guild first completion. Grats guys, awesome job~
