As Requested

Curious minds have been badgering politely requesting that I post some pictures of my new kitty version of Arioch.

Yeah, I’m not too terribly clever on naming conventions.

The game is gorgeous but for some reason I don’t take very many screen shots…

I am required by Square Enix to include the following: FINAL FANTASY XIV © 2010-2014 SQUARE ENIX CO., LTD. All Rights Reserved.

And now that the formalities are out of the way, on to the pretties! Continue reading

Not the Post You Were Expecting

When we last spoke, I left you with the cliffhanger ending of *gasp* considering running LFRs in an attempt to build my ilevel to a respectable level to be prepared for a *gasp* possible return to raiding on a casual basis.

Join us this week for the continuing adventures as the road takes us places we never dreamed of!

DUNH DUHN DUUUUHHHNNNNN!

Did our wayward hero return to LFR in the pursuit of better gear?

Did he return to the hallowed halls of the guild and revel in their camaraderie?

DUNH DUHN DUUUUHHHNNNNN! Continue reading

So What Have I Been Up To?

The short answer?

Work and school.

The long answer?

Woooooooooooork and schoooooooooooooool.

And now that I’m done being a smartass…

Seriously, work and school and life have just wrung me through the wringer.

But I have some free time coming up. The semester is about to end and they are reducing the amount of time off I can hoard at work so it looks like I’ve got some days off coming up.

What do I do now?

I’m lost in WoW. Like, really, really, lost. Continue reading

I’ve been on the run

As you may recall, the last time I posted, it was about a great video of one of our cats doing something funny.

And it turned our lives upside down.

OK, not really.

But it was a fun little roller coaster to ride.

Osiris has since been turned into a GIF and plastered all over the interwebz.

The counter for the video is now over 621k views.

That’s not including the many thousand likes/reblogs on tumblr and the shares from the other sites hosting him. Continue reading

In the meantime

Since raiding has been off the table in any serious capacity for the past couple weeks, what have I been up to in WoW?

With the exception of this past weekend, not much.

I started playing LoL and almost as quickly lost interest.

Watched the first 4 seasons of Venture Bros. Seriously, if you aren’t watching this, you need to start. What are you waiting for? Go watch!

And then two things happened.

Patch 5.4 and the promise of 489 catch-up gear for my alts and 100 free valor (if I can cap on Arioch) each week until this shindig ends (anyone know when it will end?) had me itching to put some serious hours back in to the game.

The second thing was my overwhelming guilt for not keeping up on my cousin’s gaming podcast (check him out over at www.extradamage.com ) finally caught up with me.

I had the perfect opportunity to roam the Barrens, mindlessly slaughtering Kor’kron and escorting caravans, while listening to the MANY hours of podcast I had fallen behind on.

I am sad to say that I’m still not caught up on the podcast (episode 19!) , but I made progress all over the place in WoW on multiple characters. Continue reading
