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…

Little bits of random

Running around Kun-Lai Summit. I’m thrilled to see tumbleweeds tumbling around. That amuses me. A lot. I miss Death Coil. A quick grep of teh Intarwebs shows that “Death Coil” is now the name of a Death Knight thingy.. though honestly I remembered that.. and even way back (long, long ago when I tried to level a DK) I thought…

Button, Button. Who’s got the Button?

The good part about taking a nice long break is that when I come back I can look at my UI/setup with fresh eyes. I don’t remember where the buttons are.. or what they do.. and frankly half the buttons either no longer exist or no longer do the same thing.. so it’s a good chance to change it all…

So then I farmed some more carrots…

Holidays were good. Got away from home and visited with the parents.. which means there was absolutely no WoW time over the break. I did get a few moments on New Years Day, after we got home, when I logged on, checked my presents under the tree and farmed some more carrots. Oh, and somewhere before I logged off for…

Demonic Gateway.. situational.. but interesting

Questing along I dinged 87 and barely noticed.. it turns out I also didn’t notice a new spell which showed up on my toolbar: Demonic Gateway Last night I was mulling over my toolbar trying to improve my casting sequence (ie, make it less awkward and make sure I’m hitting all the buttons I should be hitting) when I finally…

Eats, shoots, and leaves

Whelp, I’m still here. “Mists of Pandara” is on sale for $30. It seemed silly to try out the game for 10 days without the expansion.. so I plunked down my money and expanded. My warlock is now 87.5 and wandering around the Valley of the Four Winds. Observations: – Tweaking my UI makes me happy. I don’t think it’ll…
