Back in the Saddle

August 5, 2015

Ok, I’m back! Mom was here for 5 weeks and we had a lot of fun. But I couldn’t play while she was here. SO … now that most of you are sick of Tanaan, I am just getting started over there.

The first thing I did, now that you can mog Admiral Taylor’s weapons, was to put Sanbec in the Stormwind guard armor you get from the War Mill and add the good Admiral’s swords. Put him on the palomino and damn he looks hot.


He did a couple of dungeons this weekend because it was the bonus rep weekend (not mythic, just regular), got honored with the main Tanaan faction so he could build battleships, and faked his way through the first wing of LFR. I didn’t even read the Blizzard Watch 5 minute guide to the wing, I just went in blind and followed the minimal instructions handed out in chat. I mean, it was Tuesday LFR, you know? I’ll do another wing tonight and actually read about it this time (maybe).

Oh yeah, and it’s Faire time, too! Surprisingly, it only took two tries to get myself a Hogs.


I was a little bit disappointed that he’s so small, but oh well. That’s what biscuits are for, right? Oh yeah, I finally got Syd this week, too, but I forgot to take a screenshot.

I don’t know if I’ll be back to writing 3 days a week or not, but expect at least one post a week. 🙂


PSA: No Stacking

Yeah, so … don’t ride the Carousel and then use a Hat. They don’t stack, the hat will just replace the ride buff. Also, if you thought the bunny ears were scary, this is even worse.


She tolerated it though because it meant leveling faster. Next up, my favorite place in all of Cata … Deepholm! 😀

It’s Faire Time!

April 9, 2013

I really love the Darkmoon Faire. Everything about it … the games, the profession quests, the fairegrounds themselves … is such a huge improvement over what it used to be. I have all the pets and mounts, but I still go. I’m working on upgrading heirlooms next, I think.


The timing for this month’s Faire was just perfect for Madorsa, as she moved from Northrend to Cata. Her enchanting leveled right up with no issues, but I got bogged down on the tail end of Northrend tailoring. Seriously, just to get from 410 to 420 so she could do the quest at the Faire to finish it off, each recipe took 9 bolts of cloth from 410 to 415 and a whopping 12 bolts (plus 12 infinite dust of which she has a near-infinite supply) for each frostweave bag to get from 415 to 420. Averry helped out a lot, sending me every scrap of frostweave he could dig out of his alts’ banks, but I still ended up spending a good four hours over the course of three separate farming sessions on Kirgra to get enough to finish it. If I’d had to also get enough to get from 420 to 425 I think I would have had to break something.


And yes, you’re getting screenies of Dyle again because I am so in love with his transmog.

No Time to Post

…too busy pet battling.

Yeah, so … Darkmoon Faire started on Sunday right? I took each toon down there to do the profession quests. Van cleared his quickly, then I moved on down the list. Oh. Arelin doesn’t have his arch high enough to do that quest. Well, let’s just go dig for awhile. Hey, this dig site is in the zone where I was last leveling my latest pet team. Gogo pet battles! Yeah … not only did he level them, but he went to Dustwallow, got a rare Spawn of Onyxia, and beat the tamer there. On to 1000 Soggy Needles!

His adventure was cut short in Tanaris when Lyss needed a hand with something. So I moved on to the next toon and went to the Faire … and needed to do some digging … and ended up doing pet battles. Dyle started to do the same but I got all the way to Feralas before realizing that he had only the most basic level of flying skill. Do you have any idea how S-L-O-W 150% flight speed is when you are used to 310%? Not only that, but 310% boosted by Crusader Aura (or whatever they call the passive skill that does the same thing now). Yeah. He went back to Org, shelled out 4k for faster flying, and then I figured I’d try mounting the violet proto just to see if it gave the 310% anymore. No luck. Oh well.

Logged over to Kerick last night. Looked all over the portal room in the Shrine in the Vale trying to find the one to take me to Thunder Bluff so I could go to the Faire …. yeah. I seriously did that. Then went wait, why is there a portal to Stormw .. oh. Yeah. /facepalm … and oh darn, Kerick has no fossil fragments. Hey, there’s a fossil field in Western Plaguelands. You know what comes next, right? Yeah. Build a team to face the tamer in Eastern Plaguelands and it needs a little leveling, and I need a rare Blighthawk, so …

Kerick ended up logging out in Searing Gorge, chasing after lava crabs and molten hatchlings (he got rare Ash Spiderling and Fire Beetle in his first two battles there). He never did make it back to the Faire. Come to think of it, neither did any of the other toons I sent out digging. >.>
