Son of a Loa!

September 15, 2018

Yeah so … I know it’s been almost a year since I last posted. Who knows when I’ll post after this? But some things just have to be recorded.

First of all, I finished all of the class mount quests in Legion and not much else. But I went into BfA with all 12 classes at max level, plus one extra warlock from the boost. I chose Kerick the Alliance paladin to level first this expansion. Let me just say I love Flynn Fairwind.

Afterwards, I started the opening Horde quests with my undead warlock. She did the scenarios, sailed to Zandalar to meet King Rastakhan, and went … meh. She had no connection to the story whatsoever. Fortunately, it was almost Faire time at this point, so on Faire week I leveled my troll druid from 102 and got her going. Normally I won’t repeat the scenarios, but she NEEDED to meet Zul. I knew she would be smitten with him.


His sarcastic wit had her head over heels instantly. She happily went questing about Zuldazar until she got finished wiping the mogu out of the port and was flown back to report to the king.

I should have seen it coming. No. Really. I SHOULD HAVE SEEN IT COMING. Ro’kahn knew, if only I had been paying attention.


In the interest of not spoiling things I won’t elaborate further. Just know that Vorta is feeling hurt and betrayed and very confused. She knows what she needs to do, and knows where her loyalties need to be, but that doesn’t mean she is happy about it, ya know? But fear not, King Rasta … you can depend on her.


This is it!

Only hours to go now before Warlords of Draenor. I’m … well, I’m excited, but not in the same way as I have been for past expansions. I’m taking a more relaxed approach this time, much as I did back when Wrath dropped … before I got involved in that whole raiding business. Don’t get me wrong, I thoroughly enjoyed raiding, and made a lot of friends through it. But I am completely ready to just be casual and go at whatever pace I want to set for myself.

I don’t even know who I am going to level first. Van has been my main for something like an expansion and two-thirds now. If I was raiding, well, he would almost certainly be the no-brainer choice. Since I’m only going LFR now, I’m not locked into a choice. And, honestly, even if I was, it seems like they have healers already and I would be reasonably free to choose another dps character if I wanted. So the choice now is really … who do I want to do ALL OF TEH THINGS? You see, even though I am very much an altoholic, I do tend to have one character who gets played the most and goes through all of the quests and reputations. Like for instance, I only had two characters out of 15 at max level who finished unlocking all of Sunsong Ranch. Van was the only character who finished every quest in Pandaria. I only had one character on each faction who completed the Warsong Offensive/Operation Shieldwall storyline. So it’s a bit of an important decision in some ways.

Ok, so Van seems like a good choice. He’s got the best gear, he did the most in the last two expansions, I know I like playing him. But … the blood elves don’t have new models yet. So I’d be playing an old one. And what if, when the new models DO come out, I don’t like them? It could happen. I mean, look at what they did to humans. If that happens, well … I already plan to make one of my three male blood elf paladins into a female tauren. But I will wait until the models come out to decide which one, if it’s going to be the one that I play, or one that’s further down in the alt hierarchy.

Junahu, my Tauren huntress, would be a good choice too. She was my first character, leading the way into Wrath, my first expansion. She did Loremaster back before Cata revamped it and made it easier to accomplish … or at least made it easier to track and eliminated the travel between continents to do a single questline. She collected all of the trackable pets in Mists, has all of the spirit beasts from Wrath, and certainly has her eye on some new hunter pets in Draenor.

Of course, I don’t HAVE to choose someone that I have played a lot. Heck, I could do something crazy like let everyone else go jam up the starting areas while I go back to Pandaria and get the last two levels on Vorta so that she can prowl around Draenor in cat form.

Camouflage kitty!


After all, if I’m not raiding, I have all the time in the world to level. I just have to get one character to 100 by the end of the year so that I can do Molten Core LFR and get a core hound mount. Priorities! 🙂

One Hot Troll

June 27, 2012

SO … remember Monday I posted Roz in all his mismatched gear? I asked for suggestions, but hoped that I would have enough crap stuffed in his bank to throw something together.

Initially, I wasn’t planning on keeping any of the original outfit, especially the shoulders and gloves. Ewwww. BUT … when I dug through the bank, a couple of pieces practically jumped out of the bank and into my bags, just begging to be used, and they just happened to complement the pieces that I had so callously pegged as hideous.

JD suggested the Scythe of Ahune. Amazingly enough, my memory did not fail me, as I actually do have the level 70 version of said staff hidden away in the bank. However, since this orange color theme was begging to be used, I went with another specialty holiday weapon; the sword from Hallow’s End.

Zari wanted me to hide the helm and get a mohawk. Done and …. done!

He also suggested losing the water elemental which … well, with this color scheme, it was a no brainer to go back to fire spec (especially since he already had it as one of his specs). Once that was all done he went to find Zari’s hot little mama Jendora to show off his new look.

Seems to have worked, Jendora was pretty impressed, mon.

So, I’m calling this one a roaring success, and it only took 5 minutes of digging through the bank! Sometimes it pays to be a hoarder. ^.^

And for all of you mog addicts out there, here is a rundown of the outfit, because I know you like that sort of thing.

Helm: doesn’t matter, hidden

Shoulders: Mantle of False Virtue, Archbishop Benedictus in Hour of Twilight

Cloak: Medicine Blanket, ummm … sorry I have no idea where I got this and it is no longer available in game, so it was probably a pre-Cata quest item. I TOLD you I am a hoarder!

Chest: Corsair’s Overshirt, Cookie in Deadmines. This is the low level version, NOT the one from the heroic.

Shirt: Deckhand’s Shirt, random drop from Southsea pirates in the Northern Barrens. This is actually an important part of this outfit (unless you want lots of blue troll chest showing. hmm perhaps I should take that off …)

Wrists: Chronoboost Bracers, BoE from the VP vendor. Probably don’t show anyway. (Thanks Van)

Gloves: Archivist’s Gloves, End Time quest reward

Belt: Chillbane Belt, Arcurion in Hour of Twilight. There are many options that would work well here though.

Pants: Magister’s Leggings. More unobtainable stuff from my archives. You *can* get the replica version from the Darkmoon Faire though.

Boots: Kavan’s Forsaken Treads, BoE from the VP vendor. (Thanks again Van)

Weapon: The Horseman’s Baleful Blade, drop from the Headless Horseman during Hallow’s End. A new version is usually added each year.

Offhand: Iron-Bound Tome, Inscription 400, Roz made it himself for PvP back in Wrath.

P.S. If you look at Rozjin’s armory, please ignore the bad gems and lack of enchants. Thank you. >.>

Mog This

June 25, 2012

Saturday evening I was bored so I did the unthinkable. I logged onto Wow. I know right? I was just gonna post Van’s auctions since I’m pretty much flat broke on that server. And then maybe do some Fire Festival stuff because … I need the money. But I only got as far as collecting my mail when Slice and Lyssi talked me into coming to LFR with them. Well, I figured Van didn’t need to see LFR since he’s in full 10 man gear, and I really, REALLY dislike healing 25 mans. So after a couple of quick vendor purchases, I was off to join the unwashed masses of LFR on my ungemmed, unenchanted …. FROST MAGE! Take that, elitist jerks. Yes, my dps was horrid. But I damaged the right targets, stood where I was supposed to, and won a helm. So w/e.

Zari … this needs help. I know you’ve fallen so far to the dark side that you are doing arch and mogs. Do something with this! ^.^
