Residual raiding fear

Last night, at about 11:30 I ran my warlock down to Deadwind Pass. I want to get a blue Restless Shadeling. This isn’t the first time I’ve tried to do this.. so far I’ve managed to tame only a white Shadeling. It bothers me to see my little “Number of pets tames for this area” and see the bar half…

There ought to be a manual…

I know I’m a late comer to Mists of Pandaria and everyone else probably already knows this.. but here’s the things that I learned that were not obvious. Getting home From Pandaria there is a portal back to your faction home (Stormwind and .. Orgrimmar I assume but I don’t play horde so MMV) in the MoP starting area in…

Everything-must-go sale

The end (of leveling professions) is coming!! Or at least that’s what Godmother on Alt: ernative believes. Looking at the evidence I think it’s a fair guess. It maybe that only Blacksmithing is going in 5.2.. but I don’t doubt that the other crafting professions will follow. So I asked myself: Self, what would it mean if you didn’t need…

Srsly Blizz?

Seriously.. WTF? What’s the big idea putting a battle pet out in the middle of the ponds? It’s a damn fool thing if you ask me.. I can’t battle it while I’m swimming.. and I can’t battle it while I’m walking on water. The only thing I can do is kill it and hope it spawns elsewhere, closer to the…

Darksiders II

I don’t play it.. in fact I really don’t know what platform it’s for.. but this parody(?) of the game trailer made me LOL. As an aside: epic pony of green fire-ness. /want.

Vale of Eternal Meh

Last night I had a grump. I’m playing through Kun-Lai Summit and I got to the part where I saw the opening of the gate to the Vale of Eternal Blossoms. [ Aside: So.. ok. The gate is now open. I’m just going to keep my mouth closed about how dang silly a “great wall of Pandaria with a gate”…

Down for the count

Computer’s still dead. Nothing on TV. Tracking company has helpfully told me that the new replacement fan is in the mail somewhere.. but gives no estimate on delivery date. So we wait. In the meantime I stumbled on this: Cynwise’s Warcraft Manual: The Decline and Fall of Warlocks in Cataclysm It’s a great read. I’d be interested in a follow…

The crack I was warned about

As I mentioned, I have finally trained in how to do battle petting.. hmm.. that sounds wrong.. trying again: I am now skilled in subjecting small furry (and sometimes not so furry) animals/beast/thingies to my will and very very slowly killing(or capturing) other small ani-beast-critters in pet battles. … there must be a shorter term for that. Anyway. I’m amused…

A tale of critters and battle pets

I hit 89 last night. Again it kind of snuck up on me. While questing, I spotted a gold dot for a flower. I don’t think I’ve mentioned it here before.. but I’m one of -those- people when it comes to flowers.. you know, people hate questing with me because in the middle of making a bee line for the…
