It’s been a while since I’ve posted and I hate that but Real Life reared it’s head this past month in a very real and scary way.  First of all, a month ago, my father in law had a stroke.  He survived and just came back home this past week and is improving every single day.  He still has some loss of movement in his right hand/arm/leg but it’s coming back little by little.  He lives an hour away from us and the hospital he was in was about an hour and 40 minutes away so a lot of traveling ensued.  We even had to cancel a raid which hasn’t happened in years but I have the best raiders who are incredibly understanding – I mean Real Life comes first!

 

And then last week there was a shooting outside our house – something unheard of for our neighborhood, and thankfully no one was hurt… it’s just really disturbing to have that happen twenty feet from where you’re sitting in the living room.

 

One of the brightest spots this past week was receiving a pet from my friend Navi who literally made my day.  It was an expected and welcome Dragon Kite – level 25.  I named it Rawr.  It seemed appropriate and it CHANGES COLORS.  SQUEE!!!  And as you can see from the picture below is that I also got my Hearthsteed which I think is just GORGEOUS.

Anyway, I’ll get to more posts later… I have quite a few in mind – including the new Diablo 3 expansion and the new game Heroes of the Storm which is in technical alpha at this point.  Ven and I were lucky enough to get invites.

Warbringer Hunt!

Well this weekend I decided it was high time I sat down and finally got at least one of the warbringer mounts.  My experience grouping for those has not been very good.  This weekend however was pretty much just me with hubby joining me on a few circuits.

I managed to net two of the three mounts in the process – And while I occasionally saw people farming them or camping the Dread Wastes one, they’re up a lot on my circuits – even on the weekend – so it’s not a horrible time to farm them.

But anyway, here are the two I managed to get…

Weekend Achievements

Guild Level 25 whilst snagging Candy Buckets!

Guild Level 25 whilst snagging Candy Buckets!

So quite a few things over the weekend in terms and achievements and goals and such.  First of all, my bank guild finally hit level 25.  Hubby logged on and was helping me run around getting candy buckets on a couple of his alts.  One of my major goals for this expansion was to have it leveled to 25 so quite happy it’s done.  I’ve had a few friends help out now and again – Endy, Rok, Kan, Black, Ra and I hope I didn’t forget anyone.  Ven leveled a couple alts there but most of the work was my own.

 

Saturday night – just after midnight… well I guess that’d make it Sunday morning… I saw a note on my battlenet about getting a group together for Rabble Rabble Rabble.  Naturally, Ven and I jumped in for that!  To get the achievement you have to have 20 plus people queued up for a Brawl fight.  The portal lasts something like 5 minutes but it was nice to get this!

And this morning I go to run Sunwell, as I do weekly on my hunter [almost forgot it this week] and when I killed Kiljadean I looked away for just a moment only to see something flash across the screen in my peripheral vision.

Yup it dropped!

We had such a fantastic time tonight!  Monday night is when we run our retro stuff and tonight we were in Firelands.  We finished Glory of the Firelands Raider for 8 people in the raid… just needing to finish “Do a Barrel Roll”.

 

Glory of the Firelands Raider!

We cleared the rest of the heroic modes for the other two who needed them and ended up calling it early to take screen shots of us on our new mounts at Shrine.  Apparently created a little stir too… had a couple people standing on top of us and asking about the guild :P so all in all, not too bad

 

Purple Purple!

 

 

After that, I got a note from Endyme of Unholy Randomness [whom I happen to know in Real Life] and got invited on her guild’s alt run of Mogushun.  We cleared the first three bosses on heroic mode and ended up doing a few attempts at Spirit Kings.  Ven and I both ended up getting heroic Jasper Clawfeet for our offsets but the look at the four heroic modes was fantastic… can’t wait to bring that back to our raid.  Endyme’s guildies are completely psychotic… but in a fun kind of way.

 

Apparently I'm not the only one who likes the in game toys!

shadowmourne

 

Yup, I finally managed to finish out Shadowmourne after what, three years?  I remember doing the infusions at level… well 2 of them at least.

 

I honestly don’t have a lot to say, other than that I appreciate the members of both my current guild – Band of Misfits and my old guild on Thorium Brotherhood – Wrath and Retribution, for banding together to help me finish it.  Almost everyone has their metas finished, with only a couple people who couldn’t attend regularly missing a few things.

 

Oh, here’s me in the tabard, glowing:

The last few days have been achievement filled for Venoym and I!

Well last week I finished the first part of the Wrathion questline and got my quest for 6k valor [understandable but ugh].

(more…)

It’s been a good few days…  I seem to have the luck this weekend!

Friday night we did a bunch of Molten Core runs to try and get me the Harbinger of Flame pet from the Sulfuron Harbinger.  Venoym’s alt went in and got it, after about 10 of my toons had gone through with no luck.

Saturday morning, before leaving for the day, I finished the apprentice questline and got “I am the Master Now”.  Saturday night we did LFR and I got the item I’ve been wanting for weeks… the sword off Elegon.  I still need to get the Sha Touched Weapon, but that’ll come eventually [I hope].

Because I got the weapon, I got Mystically Epic

Mystically Epic!

Now there are only a couple things I need in LFR.

On a whim, I got into the bidding war for the Blood Soaked Invitations and to my shock, won one.  It’s going to put off getting my first JC mount for about a month [based on personal gold totals I want to maintain] but I felt like it was worth it and I joined BigBearButt in fighting and cheering on the competitiors.  I made Rank 4 in the Brawler’s guild today :D.  Rank 7 is going to take a LOT of work… and figuring out how to dps as a frost death knight.

Oh, as Bear says in his post, Venoym and I have joined his guild, along with a few friends of ours.

brawlers1

I retrieve my invitation, in total shock. The Orc there cheered at me when I got the achievement!

Bear cheers me on while I fight a bad guy!

This afternoon, while Ven, LittleVen and a friend were grilling burgers and hot dogs, I saw an advertisement for a Darkmoon Rabbit raid, which I almost passed on as it was almost lunch time.  I’m sure glad I didn’t.

I WON IT!  Darkmoon Rabbit!

I WON IT! Darkmoon Rabbit!

I know, a blog post about this can come to no good.  Either I’m not going to be coming down on Blizzard hard enough  and am a lolblizzardfangirl or I should be ingratiatingly thankful that they deign to allow me to play this game… Oh I’ve read some of the entries on the forums and I’ve seen both extremes.  There now, that’s out of the way.

 
I AM thankful for the tabard.  It’s a great thing for someone like me.  I’ve ground everything to exalted on my main and am finally able to really look at some serious alt leveling.  I would wish for it to be an 8% increase for questing as I am a quester but it’s probably too soon for that sort of boost so all good.

 
I think it’s fantastic that World of Warcraft is on it’s 8th year… that’s pretty amazing and I’ve been a part of it for most of those 8 years.  I started playing because Endyme gave it to me for a Christmas present and shortly after my then boyfriend, now husband got an account and subscribed.  We play together – we’re a team and a pretty fabulous one if I do say so.  He’s stayed on his paladin and I’ve moved from my warlock to my death knight.  We co-tank and that is probably the most fun part of the game for me – two tanks moving as one unit.  We’re usually decently in sync but on occasion we achieve that level of perfect synergy and that is a bit of a high.  A paladin and a death knight – who’d have thunk it?

 

Anyway, I confess, I find it a bit silly that Blizzard wouldn’t work for some perfection themselves with anniversaries…  Oh, yeah I’d love a pet but that’s not what I’m talking about.  I’m talking about sending us the same mail as they did last year.

 

Yeah, probably a glitch.  Maybe someone didn’t think about it.  It’s the thought that counts…

 

But wait…

 

Sending me the same letter indicates no thought was given.  That’s my real problem here.  I mean I could sit here right now and write out a new thank you note in about what, three minutes?

 

Unless Deathwing really is coming back…Then we’re all in trouble! :P

 

I don’t expect perfection from Blizzard nor do I really believe I’m a valued subscriber.  I haven’t thought that since my Cataclysm beta experience which really soured me.  But enjoying the game as I do means I don’t think about that all that much.

 

Except they sent me the same note… so I had no choice but to think about it.

My main’s doing quite well at this point in the expansion.  I’m exalted with all the reps except Shadopan [16k/21k] and August Celestials [9k/21k].  I’ve maxed out every profession at least once, so I have access to them all on my main server.  I’ve gotten two alts to 90 – including my horde alt on another server [yay achievements!]

I’ve killed Heroic Nefarian, finished the “Glorious” achievement of killing the rares, managed Galleon kills two times [got nothing], am best friends with everyone on the farm and even have my second alt to 90 exalted with the tillers [and all I did on her was login, replant her farm and do the tiller dailies in 15 mins or so].  I’ve done a couple Firelands retro runs, and even killed the first boss of Mogushun Vaults with whomever we could pull together in guild and a couple out of guild friends.  We also got the second boss to 26%.

Pet Battles have been what’s fallen to the wayside.  I know they’ve captured most people’s attention instead of all the other but for me it’s been the reverse.  I really want to do more for that in the coming few weeks as I’d like to get the upper level pets and I’d be ready for 5.1.  It just… well the grind to get a level 25 pet seems so painful looking.  My highest level pet is 10 right now.

I would post some screen shots, but at the moment I am without my computer :(  The hard drive died and since I have the laptop [and access to Venoym's computer during the day], we decided it would be easier just to wait till the weekend to swap some drives about.  So, when he can move the data over, I will have some screenies, though I have posted a few things on twitpic.

National Novel Writing Month is this month and I have written a bit thus far…  I’m still not sure I’m participating.  I’ve already written 125k this year [my goal was 100k, but I revised that and raised it to 150k] so I’m not sure I want to push myself to cram another 50k in but I’m writing daily as is…  I may just see what happens.
