Having many love…

I accidentally ran my first heroic last night. Well started to anyway. I logged in, started my dailies and popped into the Daily Dungeon queue (Hit “I”, Choose “join”, close screen). Eventually it popped and I ended up in Halls of Origination. Everything went swimmingly for a while until we got to the first boss. After about 3 minutes I…

Day in the life at 85

Sign up for Daily Random Regular (I’m 3 points short of heroics right now) Teleport to Uldum and complete the one lonely daily quest. It almost feels not worth it.. but a daily is a daily.. and it does build needed reputation. Hearth back to Stormwind. Teleport to Deepholm and then teleport to the Throne of Therazane. Complete the six…

Ding 85

Due to .. unusual events.. I ended up playing through to 85 last night. I dinged on the last quest in Uldum. Now, back to the “endgame”. Reputations to grind, normals to do, gear to buy. Fun Fun Fun.

Flaming Gnomes, Flaming Gnomes EVERYWHERE

I finished Deepholm and (as instructed by the breadcrumbs) moved on to Uldum. I’m disappointed to have to report that the Random Dungeon queue can pop for you WHILE you’re watching a long cut scene.. so I’m not 100% certain what happened in the cut scene as you enter Uldum. I was afraid that I’d miss my Dungeon (which I’d…

A question of spec

I’ve started questing in Maelstrom/Deepholm and hit level 83. So far questing has been fairly easy and I’ve just kept with my “normal” Affliction raiding spec. This kind of makes me feel guilty since I -know- that spec isn’t optimal for levelling. So I keep flipping over to my alt spec (which is still 0/0/0) and fiddling with the numbers.…

Maelstrom ho!

I “finished” Vashj’ir. Well.. ok, I’m 145/160 with no leads on the other 15 quests. Teh Intarwebz (and twitter) says the count is borked.. so hopefully Blizz will get that fixed soon so I can get the achievement. The quest line was very enjoyable. I’m glad that I’m a quest reader. That said, the final quest left me at the…

Unexpected Victory

I wasn’t expecting it. In fact I’d decided that just getting my Red Proto Drake was enough. But as luck would have it I got included in a guild run to kill the Lich King(it was the guild’s second kill as far as I know). So there you have it. I’m a Kingslayer. For the first time EVER I’ve completed…

Enemy’s Gate is Down

I think I need to start making crib sheets for raid/dungeons. We ran Heroic Occulus.. and none of use could clearly remember any of the boss fights. I think I’ll start a set of Crib Sheets here and on the new guild site so that I have a quick reminder.. and a spot to cut/copy paste instructions for puggers. I’m…
