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.

Well hubby and I both beat D3 Normal mode [me last night, him this morning]. We’ve also both started Act 1- Nightmare mode and it seems to be going well. He’s running a monk and I’m running a barbarian. I think we’ve both just beat the Skeleton King on Nightmare mode and we’re both about level 35.
We’re both from the school of explore everything and pick everything up. We have remarkably similar playstyles for Diablo 3 and yet neither of us is much for the co-op mode, even with each other. In fact, while we’ve both had a friend pop into our games once, neither of us has popped into the other’s game… at all. Neither have either of us purchased anything from the Auction House.
The couple of times we have had trouble, we’ve been willing to help… it’s just not been necessary yet. I suspect as we get into the higher level gameplay, that’ll change some. But it seems to be smooth sailing for now :)
The story was engaging, if predictable and I’m definitely enjoying it more than I expected :)

I know, I know… Yeah… 3 posts so far in two days and a couple of weeks before that without one… but eh, I have stuff to talk about NOW.
Anyway, I wanted to go ahead and start making that list of ‘things I want done before the next expansion’. Mainly so I could start working on it :P
World of Warcraft
Mercenary of Sholazar
*Avengers of Hyjal exalted
*Get into PVP a little bit and earn at least a few of those achievements.
*Try to get the Tol’vir pet and mount.
Get the Traveler’s Tundra Mammoth
Get a Vial of the Sands
Grind the pattern on my druid
*Try to finish out Shadowmourne… 22/50
Hit 12k achievement points
Grind a Tabard of the Scarlet Crusade for Askevar
Finish Well Read on my primary alts
*Max out professions on alts on AZM [Leatherworking and
*Salty on Askevar [just need the rare fish]
*Turtle mount on Askevar
*Cenarion Molten Core set for Aricaa [have 7 of the 8 pieces]
*Level one of each class on the main account to 85: just need mage – have one at level 79 at the moment
*Clear out my toons banks and guild banks… make use of void storage for the things I want to keep
If I get really bored, run the rest of my AZM toons through the Cataclysm zones they didn’t finish in while in the leveling process.
Looking at that list and thinking… honestly the only things I expect to get done are the rep grinds and some PVP… not sure I have the fortitude to grind out the archaeology stuff and the fishing achievements. I probably will make some progress on Shadowmourne but we’ll see.
Hit 50 on Askevar, my Jedi Guardian [she's 49 now]
*Level my Bounty Hunter [Level 30]
*Level some alts, especially after 1.2 hits
Finish Diablo 3 on the Barbarian. Play other classes
Try out Star Trek Online as it’s free 2 play
Play LotRO with Endyme some.
I honestly am not sure I’ll do much with the MoP beta… The Cataclysm beta left a really bad taste in my mouth because of the poor quality of it… and the fact that every bug I reported was in the release… and the fact that the feedback function was broken for months… Yeah, was severely not impressed there and it’s kinda to the point of ‘what is the point?’ if Blizz isn’t going to listen anyway. I probably will spend a little time in it… but yeah, not too much.
Diablo 3 – if it’s ever released, is something hubby and I will check out. I seriously doubt we’ll play it long term but as we’re receiving a copy from the annual pass, it’d be a little silly not to check it out.
We’ll see how it goes… for now I’m playing what I feel like as I can and have time :), with WoW being my priority as I’m raiding and raid leading and really enjoying that!
