TRIUMPH!

Last night for the first second time since Wrath was release West Kingdom fielded a (almost) full guildie raid group and took down 25-man content. We did H-VoA and had to pug 3 spots. Then we dropped those puggers and got guildies and ex-guildies to fill those last three positions. Last time we did this we had to pug in…

Fuck you and your fucking curve!

“Behind the curve” In BC it didn’t matter. I didn’t start playing until BC had been out for a month.. I didn’t hit 70 until it’d been out for ~8 months. It didn’t matter that my guild was “behind the curve” and just rolling into Kara when others were finishing off Black Temple. It didn’t matter that others had progressed…

Guild First: Noth and Heigan

I’ve been lax about reporting guild firsts. Mostly because I keep getting this feeling that my guild is “behind the curve”. Oh well. We’re making progress and we’re getting better. This week we killed Patchwerk, cleared spider wing and for the first time, we cleared the military wing. Horray for downing the four horseman for the first time in-guild. Last…

Swimming in Red Envelopes

You know.. I don’t mind traipsing all around the world to visit my elders.. I mean not even if it takes all day (literally, 11am to 8pm).. with fiancee on auto-follow.. But geez.. those geezers sure do follow up your visit with the email spam. Seventy-four: “Thanks for visiting.. we should do lunch” notes are a bit much. I’ve finished…

Puttering

Hmmm.. what was that? I’m starting to putter. I really thought it’d take longer to get to this point. I’ve crafted almost everything I need to craft (still need Spellweave Robe).. and I’ve leveled my tradeskills.. and I’ve achieved all of the main reputations I need.. and I’ve bought most of the badge gear.. and well.. I’m kinda sitting pretty.…

3.0.8 First Impressions

Last night was a short play night. I got home late (meeting and then had to grocery shop) and then helped with a guildie run to the first boss in H-HoL (tank wanted the shoulders off that boss). The tank was a new-ish 80 tank.. and I was having some problems where I was out-threating him.. but I don’t know…

Horray for random!

Long weekend.. full of stuff.. but not really anything that qualifies as its own post. So.. ta-da.. a blather of randomness. At the start of a Halls of Lightning run I dinged exalted with Kirin Tor. I’m -very- bad.. at this point I don’t remember why I wanted exalted with Kirin Tor. *sigh* must dig out my notes. At the…

Week over week: In the beginning…

Ok, so technically this should probably be titled “Week” since this is the first week.. but meh, whatever. Really I wanted to call it “Friday Five”.. but Anna (of Too Many Annas) has kind of cornered the market on that. So.. Ok.. here it is, “Week over week”. This is here for -me- I was half tempted to post it…

Shoveltusk Flank

Shoveltusk Herd + seed of corruption = fun Fly to Howling Fjord. Find Shoveltusk Herds. Start seeding the ones furthest away from you. Seed them all. When they all group up on you and start hitting you, use ShadowFlame (yeah, it has a use). To trigger all the seeds. Collect your Shoveltusk Flanks. In about an hour I collected 68…
