Hello 2017

January 17, 2017

Yeah I know, we’re already 17 days into the new year and here I am *finally* posting. But I figured I should at least toss up an update on how things are going.

WoW
Oranis got a legendary in one of his emissary bags finally, Marquee Bindings of the Sun King. These give a chance for your next non-instant pyroblast to deal 300% more damage after consuming hot streak. Normally I NEVER hard cast pyro, using it only with hot streak. But this certainly makes it worth it, even with only a 15% chance. I still won’t usually cast it mid-fight when I’m running solo, preferring to use it to pull the next mob. Coupled with my favourite trinket, the Devilsaur Shock-Baton which slows the enemy when it procs, most things burn to ash without even reaching me.

Junahu finished her hunter campaign so I am essentially done with her. Kerick and Hunahuna, who reached 110 over the weekend, are both working on their campaigns and did the World Quest event over the weekend to get the bonus rep and the 5k resources. I suppose I should get back to work on leveling someone else to follow them. I think Kroy and Sanbec are probably the furthest along.

Hearthstone
I posted awhile back that I was having problems deciding what to craft next. I finally decided on Tirion even though I’m not really playing paladin right now. Anyone who has been around this blog for any length of time will not be surprised, though, as I am a longtime Tirion fangirl. It just seemed wrong to not have him in HS, especially since they killed him off in WoW. 😦

Summoners War
Who … what? This isn’t a Blizzard game! Heck, it’s not even a PC game. You’ll just have to bear with me because BigBearButt posted about this game a couple of times and got me hooked. No I mean really hooked. Like, I’m looking stuff up and making spreadsheets hooked. Yeah. So, probably none of you will know what I’m talking about but that’s ok.

My Dagora is 5* and over 23k hp so he’s able to solo Tamor 3 Hell to level up my other mons. I also have Belladeon and Konamiya 5*. I don’t know who to 5 next .. I have Ahman, Chasun, Shannon, Bernard as likely candidates .. Darion is still 3* but I could easily evolve and level him by the time I have the mats to do a 5. I have some other good 4s that I definitely want to evolve at some point, too, but I’m not sure they should be next .. Mikene, Platy, Shimitae. Honestly though it’s probably between Bernard and Chasun. From what I’ve read, I’ll need Bernard and Shannon for my giants 10 team for sure. Then again, I’ll need Mikene to fuse Veromos, so … yeah. Either way, whatever I do will be for building my GB10 team. I probably should have done Shannon instead of Konamiya but his cleanse is so useful everywhere …

Pets and Fun

November 10, 2016

What a great week last week to have the pet battle bonus event. I managed to pick up and level 3 of the 4 new falcosaur pets, plus some others that will make some of the world quest achievements easier. Why only 3 and not all 4?

PSA Make sure your pet journal is not capped when you go to get these. I found and fed the Orphaned Sharptalon, but my journal was maxed so he wasn’t added to it. ‘No sweat,’ I said to myself, ‘I’ll just cage some of these dups I’m sitting on and try again.’ Yes, well … because of they way they did it, where it goes right into your journal instead of into your bag, means that once it’s done, it’s done, the quest to obtain it is complete and if your journal is full you are SoL. The only way around it is to do it on another character. SO .. I guess getting another alt to 110 moves up my priority list. I have a couple at 106 so it won’t take too much, I just need time to do it.

One of my favorite world quests is the one in Highmountain where you turn into a creature and get back at the hunters. The cat is plenty fun, but my favorite is getting to be a moose and butting them into oblivion with my antlers.

Also fun was this new transformation when getting tricked at Hallow’s End. I didn’t go out of my way this year but the characters that were in Dalaran hit the one in the Legerdemain. Look out peeps, this spider’s got a gun!

Also, that Kosumuth thing is up this week. I’m still clicking orbs, and I think once I finish that I have to go kill him inside Eye of Azshara to unlock the world quest. I’m not quite sure how to accomplish that because I’ve only done dungeons through LFD. Time to do some research.

Arrrr … Give Me Da Golds

November 1, 2016

So yesterday Z posted about the ‘new’ Defias armor transmog set that you can get through a quest in Deadmines if you are an outlaw rogue. Check out her post if you’re interested in getting this set, she has a great write-up.

So I wandered over there and stealthed through killing bosses only. But when I got to the ship room with my Green-Wing Macaw out and grappeled up to the Cap’n, this happened.

Yup, that’s right, I already had all of the pieces! Now, Kroy has been around a long time, apparently even longer than I remember, because he had to have collected those pre-Cata. It’s possible that I got pieces on other leather-wearers or even my hunter now that I think about it. Still, the quest was a blast … I never tire of running around shooting everything with my pistol. And who’s going to complain about 750g? 🙂

Funny story, too, you know how that fire mage I’m playing as my main right now was my Horde bank alt for the last however many expansions? Yeah, well, Kroy spent the better part of his existence as my Alliance bank alt. Neither of them made max level before the pre-Legion demon invasions, and now they are both among the characters that I have already worked on leveling this time! The outlaw fighting style is always what I had imagined for Kroy, so it just seemed like the perfect time for his character to develop.

Also, if anyone needs a Green-Wing Macaw, one dropped for me while I was killing mobs for the quest and I would be happy share it. 🙂

Play Time!

October 13, 2016

At the end of the workday, I will officially be on vacation for a week. That means extra time to play! It probably also means no posts. Sorry about that.

The other day I was browsing Warcraft Pets to see what I had missed so far. (Note to self: remember to visit the ley ruins in Northern Azsuna at night for that manafiend.) I had done all the quests at Bradensbrook, or so I thought, but had totally missed Grumpy in the burning farmhouse! Look at this cute little face, I think he’s my favorite pet so far this expansion, and I missed him!

So I quickly read the notes and most suggested getting Fighter Chow food for the quick regen because running through the fire hurts, especially if you stop in the wrong place and are still in it. But it also said there was a clear spot on the landing, and a clear spot around Grumpy himself. So Hunahuna went and used her answer to all things that cause damage when you run through them … bear form! (If you remember, she used it in her artifact quest to run through the grabby spirit arms instead of using her ranged Solar Beam interrupt to just stop it from being cast.) It worked perfectly, and Grumpy was mine. Yay!
