You Rolled a WHAT?!?

February 4, 2013

I rolled a warlock. Yes. I know. I think this is number … five? The others made it to somewhere between 20 and 25 and went poof, except for the Worgen who became my Alliance bank alt because I only like him when he’s in his human form. Seriously, what was Blizz thinking when they designed the worgen casting animations? Male is especially awful .. I can live with the female.

I already have a goblin lock rolled on Drak. I haven’t logged into him yet, but he’s there. But … I didn’t feel like playing a goblin, I wanted an undead. I suppose I could have just deleted him and rolled what I wanted but … well, sometimes I just need a change of scenery, i.e. I need to chill on another server. It doesn’t mean I’m unhappy where I’m at. Oh hell, why am I even trying to explain this? How about I just say I didn’t want to level on the PvP server and leave it at that, I *know* you all will accept that excuse.

So, I have 3 alts and a DK over on Kargath, along with cloth heirlooms. And a monk that I haven’t logged into yet. I know Averry won’t mind if I place yet another alt in his guild, even if I only play it once and forget about it. So I create a nasty looking undead female, and play around with the name generator until I find something suitably evil. Madorsa. Then as soon as I’m logged into her I pick out a title. Hey, these things are important you know! I jokingly told Averry I was going with Salty Madorsa, and we both went eeewwwwwww before I changed it to Matron.

The levels go so very fast with 4 pieces of heirloom gear. You know, now that I think about it … yes, I did send a Dread Pirate Ring over there. I thought I had. The paladin is wearing it. Oh well, she really doesn’t need more xp. I’m having troubles outleveling zones as it is! I mean, part of the reason for this project is to see the new questlines that I missed in Cata. Seriously, up until now, I had not met Johnny Awesome. Now I have …


And Yetimus, of course, I had seen many times, but never tried to kill him on an appropriate level toon. Poor little Kal’gore, my voidwalker, got stomped into the ground in two hits. So I moved on to the other quests until I could get Kashina to come help. Afterwards, we go flying around on a sightseeing tour. You see that spire on top of Greymane Manor there?


We landed on top of it and were dismounted. Silly me decided to test out my Glyph of Falling Meteor so I jumped off the side and turned into a spinning purple ball of flying demon. Coolness! Except … there was some phasing and now we couldn’t see each other. Oops. So I had to hearth. heh.

I was supposed to move on to Arathi at 25 but … well, I already had the achievement there and I’d heard it hadn’t changed much so I stuck with Hillsbrad. I finished out the zone and got the achievement, then had to kill a few things around Arathi to get leveled to 30 so I could get the quest to move on to the Hinterlands. I also went the Faire and did the cooking, tailoring, and enchanting quests.

When I hit 32 just before entering Skulk Rock, I got a new passive ability, Wild Imps. O. MG. These things proc all the time! I am surrounded by my own little army of imps!


So yeah, it looks like this time, the warlock will stick. On her second fishing daily, she gave Faranell a severed abomination head and he gave her a bone fishing pole. (Oh stop it, Lyss, I mean a literal fishing pole!)

I’m already planning transmog outfits for her. What? There are some really hot looks for locks you know!



Alliance Raiding

November 19, 2012

So, one week after dinging 90, Kerick got to his first raid for this expansion – Bastion of Twilight.

What? Didn’t you read the letter that came with your 8th Anniversary Celebration package yesterday? It clearly said to go out and defend a shattered world.

Plus, ya know, it was Laid Back Raid night.

This was LBR’s first real foray into Cata content. To be honest, I was a little bit nervous going into it.  Sure, it’s nerfed from what it once was, and most of the raid was level 90 … but it’s still new enough and the fights are complex enough that some attention must still be paid to certain mechanics. Toss in having tanks that haven’t been there and the fact that everyone studied Blackrock Descent since that was where we were supposed to go and you can understand my concern.

Of course we wiped on the trash in the front room. It wouldn’t be a BoT raid without a wipe on that trash! Halfus went down easy though. Then we lost a couple who got thrown off the stairs (also a normal thing in BoT even if you’ve been there before) and got to Val and T.  What a trip. I think we lost most of the raid between the first breath and the first dazzling circles of swirly stuff. Three of us lived and finished the fight somehow. It was pretty epic.

That council fight … ugh. Yes, it’s still awful. There are just so many things going on.  We did it though. And everyone did awesome on the attempt where we killed them. After that, well … Cho’gall himself was a big pushover. A bunch of people got the BoT achievement at the end, too.  😀

So, a quick note about addon issues. Last week, Van couldn’t get the Closed Circuit debuff to show up on healbot during the Elegon encounter. After much gnashing of teeth over it, Sorak talked me into setting up the default frames again with mouseovers. It worked ok. But I didn’t bother setting up all the macros for Kerick, so he just used the healbot version that I downloaded last week. Now, it has some features my old version didn’t. And I love it. Sorak is going to give me hell I know, but Khizzara gave me a suggestion to solve my Closed Circuit issue, so … hey it’s Monday, I always give Sorak a hard time on Mondays!
