A Tisket, A Tasket

April 14, 2015

Ten days since last post. I’m slacking! It’s not that I haven’t been playing. Well, ok, it sort of is. I mean, come on, we had the release of the new Hearthstone adventure AND a new season in D3 in the last two weeks.

Speaking of which, obligatory rainbow shot:

Yes, I know it’s dark. Apparently she was there at night? I dunno. Anyhow … I made a Crusader this time. I’m going back and forth each season between melee and ranged. Season 1 was barbarian, 2 was demon hunter, so this one had to be either crusader or monk.

Also, what IS it about this silly game that makes it so addictive? I mean, it’s grinding the same thing over and over. Oh sure, there are several different kinds of bounties, and the maps for the rifts are never the same twice. They add new things every season too, like a new type of bounty and several new kinds of treasure goblins, not to mention the new legendaries. But it’s still the same, and I still keep coming back. There’s just something about the mindless slaying of demons and the piles of loot exploding out of them.

As for WoW, the new pet got me to participate in Noblegarden. At least for a couple of hours. I picked up eggs on Oranis, the only one of my three mages who did not have the Polymorph: Rabbit spell yet. I’m a lazy egg collector; I don’t race around town, I park myself in a spot where I can pick up three different spawn points without ever moving my character. Bloodhoof Village was very busy, so I teleported over to UC and flew to Brill. I actually have always preferred picking them up in Brill anyway. So I got my spot and sat there watching tv and picking up chocolates. It was actually quite relaxing. Then I hopped on over to UC with my flower basket in tow.

Three Posts in Two Days?!?

What the heck? Was there a patch or something?

So, I got a mission to get that darn SELFIE camera. But not on one of my 100s. So Arelin, guess what? I mean, you’re already 97 and leading the pack to be next anyway, but now your fate is sealed. So here is probably the last NON-selfie pic you will get of him. It also shows how sexy he looks. The patch seems to have changed the hair colours so this is as dark as it gets, unfortunately.

Van dropped in to turn over his missions and see who was visiting his garrison, and ended up with the best. minion. evar. I mean really, who’s gonna mess with you when Saurfang has your back?

Stormwing seems to be suitably impressed. You can also see there in the background the new Deathwatch Hatchling from the guild achievement for all CM golds. I’ve never done CMs but fortunately, my guild has plenty of serious people who knocked them out pretty quickly, allowing the rest of us slackers the opportunity to buy this. So my buddy Bocat came over and made a DK so she can get one too. It only requires getting exalted with the guild, which is pretty easy. So once she got to Org I went to visit her and give her some bags because those 12 slot things are just not big enough. We got out the toybox and I bought myself a glyph of play dead and we had a good time goofing off.

Yes, that’s a dead goren wearing blazing wings and blackflame daggers, lying next to a dead clefthoof. hehe

My Valentines

February 16, 2015

I hope you all had a good Valentine’s Day. The weather here wasn’t exactly agreeable, so I spent part of mine digging my driveway out again. But it could be worse, at least I got to spend the day with my two favorite boys.

Oh yeah, also, the Crown Chemical Co. can go jump in a lake on their Big Love Rocket. Seriously, I understand wanting to have a mount be rare but to give it such a low drop rate AND allow you only a dozen or so chances to get it each year … they really need to re-evaluate that. Even something like having them show up on the BMAH once in awhile would be … well ok, it wouldn’t help ME any, considering how much people would bid on it, but at least it would be something.

Welcome, Blizzard Watch

February 4, 2015

Most of you who care already know, but the folks who formerly worked at WoW Insider have launched a replacement site at Blizzard Watch. They will be funded by contributions from their readers/supporters through Patreon. Enough people have contributed already for them to definitely be able to get the site underway with everything that they want it to have, including columns that we all loved that were cut last year when they were forced to downsize. How’s that for community?

On to my in-game activites. Juna upgraded her barn to level 3 a couple of weeks ago. Now, trapping wolves for fur was only a secondary reason for her to have a barn. The number one reason is this Glass of Warm Milk that can spawn inside of it. It took a couple of weeks for it to spawn, and then some practice with Aviana’s Feather to manage landing inside the second floor, but she did it.

Looting that gives you the cutest pet ever, the Pygmy Cow.

She really needs to have a talk with her minions about burning candles inside the barn though. Hay + fire = very bad things.

In other news, Oslee finally made his way to Draenor, and since Sanbec is arms, Oslee changed his spec to fury so he wouldn’t feel the same. I used to not like fury, but, you know, that was Wrath and a lot has changed since then. I mean, I can be fury and still charge and bladestorm now, so it’s all good. And he does look badass with two big weapons.
