I know, I know, I said I would talk about raiding today like I covered heroics.
But two things happened.
First, I’ve written probably 5 drafts of that post. I have a LOT to say but I think the way I need to say it needs to be organized better. What with my recent promotion, how I feel about raiding not only affects me, but it now affects a whole truckload of people. I want to make sure I get it out on “paper” how it really is for me. You might have to wait a couple days while I work on that.
So fucking close… and I have no idea where the last 7 on Kalimdor are. I’m hoping that somewhere in Eastern Kingdoms I’ll get sent to the other continent to finish up a quest chain or 5.
My goal was to get both of these done before the end of the month. I was thinking for a while it wasn’t going to happen, but it just might. Just shy of 9 quests a day will get it done.
I was in Arathi last night working on the Myzreal quest chain and had to spend some time in a cave killing kobolds for some shards. Of course, with the shitty drop rate there aren’t enough kobolds to provide for a single person doing the quest. Add in the level 40 human paladin on the same quest and there really aren’t enough to go around.
I was in a good mood so I refrained from 1-shotting the pally. I did, however, make liberal use of snowballs and baby spice every time I came across her in the cave.
Now I’ve got to wonder, what was the player’s reaction? I made no threatening moves towards them, but had them targeted whenever they were in range and kept pelting them with harmless things. Continue reading →
If you’ve been hiding under a rock, you might have missed the start of Hallow’s End.
Thankfully I got my Hallowed title last year so the only thing I have left to do on my main this year is finish collecting all 20 masks. I’m down to 6. (Has anyone seen the goblin or worgen masks? I haven’t.)
Oh, and of course I need to go kill the Headless Horseman a bunch.
He’s been re-tuned to 80 and so have his drops, but the drops seemed more impressive last year. Maybe because I wasn’t raiding yet so my gear sucked.
This year I’m just after his mount, like everyone else.
And who can pass up the easy XP for leveling toons for completing the fire quest each day?
I think we’re starting to get our progression group coming along rather nicely.
Last night we took down ToCr 10 with only one wipe. I’m not even entirely certain what happened, I think the poison and fire people did not meet up like they were supposed to and we ended up with a tank rooted in place.
But other than that, we destroyed the place in under an hour including the wipe.
It is amazing how much faster shit goes down when people don’t afk and stay focused.
People got purplez, I had to shard a couple items.
Rolled over to Onyxia.
I am pleased to report that the hunter did not pursue his previous fascination with the whelp cave and was content to stand with the other casters to go pewpew.
My first thought… I’m a sucker for flattery as much as the next mage (and I’m a Leo to boot) but that seems to be laying it on pretty thick. I bet he’s going to ask for a free portal to Dalaran or something. SM runs? 10 gold? Where do these people come from?
A quick shift -click and I see it’s a level 4 blood elf hunter out in the middle of nowhere.
Huh. Out of all the mages logged on, how/why did they latch on to me? And how did they know that Arcane is my damage of choice?
We’re making small talk…
And the gears start turning and the smoke starts fuming and someone in guild chat mentions that someone has been looking for me.
(That should totally be an emote, complete with a little light bulb appearing over your head.)
