Alt Week: Mage

September 13, 2013

I know I’ve said every week that this is a big one but … well, each week it’s been true!

Rozjin

When Juna first started raiding, there were a couple of troll mages she met who dazzled her with their shiny purple arcane missiles. So, after Juna and Arelin got leveled, the next character I rolled was Rozjin.

Despite being wooed to mage by the arcane, it was NOT a good spec for leveling back in Wrath. So Roz went about setting things on fire and then switched somewhere in the 60s when he learned arcane blast. He leveled fast and got to Naxx, where he won himself the armor set that I’d wanted so bad.

So anyway, Roz became part of the max level trio, and also joined my buddy Fiak (who got me into the game in the first place) in PvP. Then our guild kinda died, and I moved to another server, dragging a reluctant Fiak along with me. That one didn’t really last either, although we made friends there who I am still friends with to this day (shout out to the Shenanigans crew!). So, I started rolling Alliance alts on a third server. That one did last, and my Alliance are still housed there today.

Karius

One of the first toons I rolled there was Karius.

It wasn’t long at all before the original Horde toons began to collect dust, while Karius became the new main. He remained as such throughout the rest of Wrath, although the DK upstaged him because of a need for a tank and got Kingslayer first. He had a lot of fun though, and had really awesome friends to hang out with, like Elgar …

and Hartbane …

and Lore …

yes, I’m the dead one. :p

And of course, Grom!

He made a serious attempt to remain as the main in Cata, but .. like with Kaly and the Lich King, people just did not need another DPS. I made the swap to holy pally and haven’t really looked back because, well, I do enjoy healing. So Karius remains in limbo, although Roz did get leveled because he HAD to get Darkspear Revolutionary.

And that’s it for Mage Week. It’s a class I have played as my main and enjoyed quite a lot. 🙂

Did You Miss Me?

December 29, 2011

Yeah right. You really expect me to believe that?

I got home Tuesday evening and had a couple of hours or so to collect presents before it was time to jump right back into raiding. We cleared to Madness and made a token attempt or two at it before calling it for the night. Got back to Org, turned in my tokens, and gemmed/enchanted/mogged/reforged my shiny new 2 piece. Ride back into Cowtown and there’s a hitching post set up. I don’t know the people using it so I whisper Arv ‘that’s not yours, is it.’ Of course, that prompted him to get his out too and invite me to a party so I could play.

It’s all fun and games until someone puts your eye out with a starfish.

And of course, Arv didn’t stop with just horses and starfish. We had to have as many toys out as possible … that’s the way things are with him. Plus he had to show off his new helm that completed his 4 piece.

Yesterday I had the whole day to play. I goofed around and finished collecting presents and then cheated on WoW for the afternoon with some Sims3 Pets. What?? You guys were all playing Star Wars anyway, you wouldn’t even know if I hadn’t told you. Logged back on a couple hours before raid time and decided to get a couple things out of the way.

ELGAR! You might want to stop reading now. No, really. Stop here.

Ok, you can’t say I didn’t warn you though.

Awwww. Who’s the widdle cutesy wutesy crustacean?

Of course, part of the reason I went to work on getting him was because I’m pretty close to finishing the fishing achievements, but the main reason was because I got a red winter helper box to complete Van’s Christmas pet collecting, which left me one pet shy of the Littlest Pet Shop. Pinchy completed it.

So now I have my very own Celestial Dragon. Arv’s not in any real danger of me catching up to him since he has all those TCG pets, but that won’t stop me from trying. Can you imagine the pet battle teams we can build, having 150+ pets at our disposal? Hehehe.

Deathwing last night. Multiple sub 5% wipes. Next week, he is dying. We just have to fine tune that second phase now that we are consistently making it there.

So anyway … hope you all had a good Winter Veil and are ready for tons of new posts. I’m looking forward to another year of shenanigans and it will all get posted right here.

Ana Wants Some Alliance

December 2, 2011

Ok, fine. Proof that I do sometimes on rare occasions play with my humans, too. =P

Got home from bowling league and Elgar was all ‘come tank for me in Ulduar.’ So I did.

Priest tank ftw!

Kaly was looking sharp in his mogged T10. Ahhhh that armor sure brings back memories. After all, he was my first Kingslayer. Don’t ask me what Kelli is wearing, I haven’t got a clue. Not much, apparently.

We cleared out everything except for Vezax and Yogg. For almost all of it we were one tanking and one healing. We did a lot of hardmodes, even killing Freya without killing any of the minibosses. We even did … Algalon. OMG. I’d never seen him before. Seriously. Unfortunately, my screenshots in there didn’t turn out very well. I had my UI turned off trying to get some when he went active, and he ate the level 83 mage. Um … oops? So now Kaly is my first Starcaller. I think my paladins might be crying.

Old Raids, Good Times

November 29, 2011

How can you double your fun in Classic Raids? Bring two paladins of course.

Over the weekend, it was Kerick and Hartbane. I forget what I was doing at the time, but when Hart wants to do something, I’ll drop everything as long as I’m not already in a group. AQ40? Sure! I whispered Saint and got him to log over as well, figuring it would be even faster with three of us. We’re going along and Hart says something about how no reds have dropped. So of course, one drops shortly after that. And guess what?

Yeah it’s a fail screenshot but still …

Then last night, Trout had Tempest Keep on the calendar. The screenshots from that are even more fail because there aren’t any. Oops. Kerick and Paaradi took care of divine storming everything in sight in that one. I made Zari go along too. I joked about how killing all the blood elves was like having a couple dozen Fayles tanking the floor. Afterwards, Trout hopped on Elgar because he needs a belt from Gruuls, so we went there. The party at that point consisted of 2 paladins and 3 priests. I keep telling him we need to change the guild name from Crits and Giggles to Priests and Pallies.

Ok, so that’s over and I log on to Van to check my auctions, and there’s Arvash in guild chat … ‘anyone want to hit Kara or BT?’ … hellz yeah! Of course, it’s Arv, and I haven’t seen him for like a week since he was on vacation, so he coulda said let’s go PvP and I woulda said yes. No one else wanted to go, so we hit up Kara. I’m not sure but, there might not be anything in the entire game that’s more fun than a couple of paladins divine storming their way through Kara. We barely even stood still long enough to loot. Finally we stopped for a second at Barnes.

Of course, Arv couldn’t let Barnes have the spotlight all by himself, so he dropped his D.I.S.C.O.

Yes, I took multiple screenshots here. What?

We had a bit of fun in Chess. We literally used up every piece so at the end, the only two of ours that were still alive were Blackhand and the demon that I was in. I think it was like the third piece I jumped in. lol. Oh well, we won.

Afterwards we tried going to Hyjal. The raid, not the zone. We had no problems with the trash waves, but Arv hadn’t been there before, and I kinda forgot about the first boss’ Death and Decay, so since we stood him right on the piles of dead ghouls, we couldn’t see the ground and it quickly did us in. We released and ran back and got the ‘unable to zone in while an encounter is in progress’ message. So annoying. So I’m whispering Trout for advice because I know he loves Hyjal and might know what to do … and then I hear the sounds of battle nearby. I believe my exact thought was ‘What the hell could he have found down here to … oh’ so I turned around and raced down the corridor. A warlock. I jumped on them and was doing pretty good, almost had him down when I saw him get a heal. Look over my shoulder … frack. A disc priest. So I switched targets but naturally that left the lock free to do whatever, and they made short work of me. As I die, a DK on a drake comes riding up. Arv was already down when I saw the priest so .. yeah. Neither one of us claims to be good at or even like PvP so we were kind of sitting ducks. Especially in our off specs. They would have had a fight on their hands in our main specs though. Or at least would have had a hard time killing us.
