Failure to Raid

After the guild meeting we started setting up a 10 man group to do VoA and OS. I really really wanted to see what my new system will do in raids.. but -really- I want to see this in a 25-man(should happen on Monday). I decided to step out of last night’s 10-man since others needed the gear more than…

Blizzcon ’09 Meetups

We had a guild meeting last night to discuss proposed Live Guild Meetup in Vegas. The stars were not in alignment and the proposed dates weren’t going to mesh with a lot of people.. so we changed the plan to a guild meetup at Blizzcon August 21/22 (we may reschedule the Vegas meetup for the fall though).

Briefly Glorious

My new precious is all connected.. and formatted.. and partitioned.. and installed. Old hard drive was moved as data drive into new system. Wow and Ventrillo are up and running. The chorus sang, birds trilled and the angels held their breath. (Ok.. maybe that’s a bit of an overstatement… but it was -very- -very- cool.) Anyway.. at 3am I experience…

Hater of Gluth

I think I hate Gluth the most. It’s a close thing between Gluth and Grobbulus. I think in the end, I hate Gluth more.

At least I’m not fishing

Last night we did both VoA-25 and OS-25. We made several attempts with a drake up, but we weren’t feeling it so we did it with no drakes up. Easy Peasy. Both raids went very quickly and I had about an hour before I was planning to go to bed.

Of Easter Eggs and Chocolate

If I were a betting person.. I’d bet that Path 3.1 will hit live before Noblegardens (April 12) starts. In fact.. I might choose April 6 for the patch day. Heck.. possibly even sooner. But definitely not any later. Interesting possibilities there.

Achievement and the codification of fun

Lilac’s two most recent achievements: Mine Sweeper Get caught in 10 consecutive land mine explosions in the Sparksocket Minefield without landing. Ultimate Triage Use a Heavy Frostweave Bandage to heal another player or yourself with less than 5% health. 😀 I decided that a good “before I go to bed” use of extra strudle was bouncing around in the Mines…
