So Legendary

May 27, 2015

So, I’m playing again. Not that I ever actually stopped but, I mean, I’m back to spending the majority of my playtime in WoW.

So, over the weekend, Sanbec decided it was way past time to finish collecting the 900 elemental thingies for Khadgar. Since he already had well over 800, it seemed likely that he could get it done very soon with just a little bit of luck. He ended his run of The Black Forge with some 893 tokens and, finally, a shiny new axe. Since his followers were on a mission to bring back some more doodads, he just logged and waited for the next day to collect them and do the quests.

After a quick and easy quest to get yet another bauble for Khadger, he released Garona from Gul’dan’s control. Then we went and she helped us stealth through an Iron Horde stronghold and find some plans and do some eavesdropping, and then we got her as a follower.

So yay, that’s done … on one character. Juna has 600 some and Van only has 300 some, so I don’t know if I will ever finish on a second character or not. It seems .. strange, to have my most-progressed toon be one that I have never done formal raiding on. And, well, he’s certainly no flavour of the month, being specced arms all this time.

He did change his offspec to fury last night though. He had to, in order to equip these and get the achievement:

Yeah, no pets, but, on the run in which he hit exalted with the Ashtongue, he also collected the second glaive. How is that for fast??

A Tisket, A Tasket

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.

You Are What You Eat

April 3, 2015

I guess Oregorger has had too much, eh?

That one was a fun LFR. We had a nice group, with an awesome bear tank and a ret paladin pulling 40k, and each time a wing ended and the new one popped, there they were along with several others from the group, so I kept going instead of dropping after one wing like I often do. They didn’t seem to be queued together, they were all from different realms, but sometimes it will work out like that when people have all queued for multiple wings.

Have a great Easter weekend!

Van Who?

March 31, 2015

I apologize for the lack of posts lately. I’ve, uh … well, I’ve sort of gotten sucked into the whole Twitter thing which I had avoided for years but since the selfie cam, well … it’s just so EASY to press that little button and send a selfie out into the world. So almost all of the shots I’ve taken have gone straight onto there, leaving me feeling like I really have nothing to post that hasn’t already been seen. But those are just snapshots and don’t come with much commentary, so here’s a little update on what’s been going on.

Junahu has mostly taken over as the main. Not surprising since I have been leaning that way since the first day the new Tauren models were previewed. She’s done the entirety of Blackrock Foundry. Still only on LFR, I have no desire really to step up beyond that, but it’s fun. Van and Sanbec are still plugging along though, doing a wing of BRF here and there. I just … 900 elemental stones is nothing short of stupid. Maybe they drop more on higher difficulties? I don’t know. But if you’re only doing LFR, it’s going to take a long, long time to create those 3 elemental tablets. It’s super easy to lose steam on this stage of the legendary quest.

Arelin has done the first wing of Highmaul, and needs only 1000 more apexis crystals to move on to collecting bro stones. Hm … isn’t there one more heroic in there somewhere? I should turn in his cores, I forgot he’ll have to go kill Teron’gor. Kirgra is slightly behind, still needing to do two of the heroics for that first stage. Two of my other alts have maxed out their garrison resources, so I’ve also been leveling them so that they can get to 100 and spend them.
