Yes!! That titles sounds wrong, but soooo right, I am going to leave it!
I was home along the other night and attempted LFR which failed miserably, so was standing around when I got a message from my friend Aza to say I could tag along with their mount farming! HELL YES! I asked, hopefully, if we could do my last ICC achievement on LK.
Oh yes, we are in the last two weeks of competition!!
You have only two more outfits to design and wow the judges with!!
Make them shine, sparkle, creep out, or in some other way impress their judging brains!!!
You know where the countries are listed!! Go forth and conquer!!
Yup, I started doing challenge modes. The first time I saw the ancestral phoenix mount, I knew I wanted one…well really I want all of them, but I think it is going to be hard to find a group willing to get the silver on 4 different toons. However I will be happy if I can get just one.
Blizzard advised they were going to close the season on challenge modes soon and I really want my mount before that happens, so I begged a few people to help me out with my goal. I think it may include a few last nights, but at this point I am willing to do that if it means I get the most beautiful mount on game.
I am beginning to think this person is bribing the judges with something…level 25 pets maybe??? or some form of in game gratuity – perhaps hard to find transmog items….I don’t know but they seem to have found the formula for winning the judges over??!?!
No creepy video again this week guys, I am flat out with work at the moment – hence the delay in the last couple of weeks, but fingers crossed we will be back on track for the last couple of weeks!
One of the issues we faced moving our guild bank with us to the new server was that it was chock full of stuff that needed to be sorted through, so whilst doing that I realised I had most of the stuff needed to get the last 3 cooking things completed. I needed to buy a couple of things off the AH, and I had to farm some crockolisk belly, and I needed Jade squash – thanks to McTacky’s reminder – I completely forgot you could buy bagfuls from the guy at Halfhill, so I spent as many motes as I had left (after the soy sauce purchases) to buy more tokens to buy bags of squash. I was nowhere near 250 and so Mctacky gracefully provided the rest for me :) I really do owe him so much!!
So, now all I have to do is continue the questline and make the rest of these recipes…which I need black pepper for – which means more tokens – so I have to start doing my dailies again to get the tokens….or make motes….either way…time to collect more stuff…I really hope there isn’t much more after this…I dislike the cooking this expansion…really really really dislike it.
Test!?!?!? Can you see me?!?!?
Apparently my post was blank so i re-wrote nothing useful!!!
Maybe you can see this and send me your wardrobe for the week !! Yes send me all your clothes?!?!?
Here is Thela’s post about it!
I won the orange month and I won the little cinder kitten!!! Isn’t she adorable?? sooo cute and flamey :p
Thanks so much Thela, I can honestly say Yellow may get the better of me, I am really struggling to come up with an outfit that is yellow – I am determined to continue submitting all the one colour outfits, but there are so many different yellows in game that just don’t match! I can’t wait to see what everyone comes up with next month.
Once again, thanks so much Thela! You have made my day!
It seems this blogging award has finally made it into the wowverse. It has taken a pretty long time to make the skip from personal blog land to Azeroth. I was handing out Liebster awards (and a multitude of other ones) a couple of year ago on my old personal blogs, it is really nice to see it has been picked up in this part of the blogsphere I like the sense of community it creates.
It was pretty cool to be nominated by Cymre actually and I also found out that Thela/Jstmel nominated me as well :) So as has been the fashion this last couple of days – (and mine is later than most) here is my Q&A, I have included all the questions I have been asked:
1. What is your earliest memory in WoW?
My earliest memory was before I had started playing and my friend was showing us how good the game was. He was a druid running around in the badlands, changing forms and killing rock elementals and it was amazing! I was completely in love with the game.
2. What is your favourite activity when playing?
Raiding. I like working with other people to kill bosses, there is a sense of achievement that I don’t get anywhere else for being part of team and problem solving issues that are not real life related.
3. What is your best WoW memory?
I have so many good WoW memories – I have been playing too long!! If I had to pick one memory to keep and all the rest were going to get wiped, I would say it was The Dark Within clearing Kara It was the guild we built up from nothing – we created the environment, we pushed the people to do the content. It was awesome.
4. If you could have any title in WoW, what would it be?
Probably the Insane – I started it a while ago, but really all the grind just made me bored, not insane, so I gave up
5. What is one thing in-game you could not live without?
My Elemental Mage Staff – it was one of the first ever epics I won when I hit 60. It was mine!
6. What is your favourite item in-game and why?
My Frostbrood Dragon from ICC – yeah it is the second best dragon in the entire game and I love it because the first time I saw the Wrath cinematic I knew I had to have that dragon. I am one achievement off the 25 man and I will have that soon as well.
7. Who was the first character you created and do you still play them?
My mage and yes. Since May 2005!
8. If you could design any transmog piece, what would it be and why?
hrmm, I think I don’t have an answer – aside from there needs to be more items with sparkles or glow (or funky effects).
9. Who inspired you to start blogging?
My good friend in Sydney – but I started blogging personally and it got overrun with WoW content
10. What is the first thing you’ll do when WoD is live?
Level to 100 and take a million screenshots and make billions of posts no doubt
11. What was your biggest noobish mistake?
I have them every week….the most recent was changing my spec and not realising i needed to actually use the button I had just changed to :p
1.) How did you get started playing WoW?
As above – same as my earliest memory.
2.) What other games were you playing when you discovered WoW?
Guild wars (I was hardcore man, nothing was better than GW!!!), Rise of Nations, Diablo2, Warcraft, Pharaoh, Zeus.
3.) Did you create your blog because of WoW or another reason?
Because of WoW – specifically to keep it separate from my person al blog.
4.) What is your least favorite zone and why?
Hellfire peninsula – and ONLY because when DK’s came out, I think the hubby and I created over 10 of them, and never took them anywhere…so we have done level 61- 63 far too many times…would you believe we have deleted them all as well so we need to start it all over AGAIN!! GAHHHHH
5.) What old raid/dungeon do you miss most and why?
Kara – it was fun and well paced – the fights had a theme that was different but enjoyable. I am not sure what it was about it, but it was so much fun and I wonder if that was because we had been soooo bored with Vanilla it was just exciting to be doing something new? I don’t know…but it was a great raid.
6.) If you could be a dungeon/raid boss, what would your tag lines (the things you would shout at players as they beat upon you) be?
You can’t touch this!!! then do an MC hammer dance :p
7.) Do you recall your first feelings about WoW and what were they?
I was amazed that I could throw fireballs with my hands…I was completely taken in with the universe.
8.) What aggrivates you most about WoW as it is today and why?
Honestly, the people. The fact that a large percentage of the population cannot be nice to other human beings. Really pisses me off. It is zoo hard to just be nice?
9.) Horde or Alliance and why?
I don’t care – as long as I can play my mage
10.) What is your favorite movie and why?
Burlesque – Cher and Aquilera…there is nothing else that needs to be said!
11.) What is your favorite song and why?
Honestly, I can’t answer this question…I have so many favourites…like a stupid amount of songs that I can listen to over and over ….S4 – she is my girl, Adele – Rolling in the deep, Nemesea – In control, Margaret Berger – Feed you my love, Emmelie De Forest – Only teardrops, Anberlin – Hello Alone….god the list could just go on and on.
OK, so I will be honest, I have spent the last few 30 minutes trying to find people that I haven’t seen nominated anywhere (that I think would deb keen to do this) and I could find none. So, please…anyone on my blogroll – please know I read you and I would have nominated you had it not already been done! I love all your blogs and I read as much as I can.
You don’t need awards to tell you how fantastic you are and how much fun and smiles you bring to my life! Thanks to those who nominated me, I feel very honoured and special right now
Yeah, we were not flexing, we were fluxing, we started with the last wing on Saturday – we wiped – a lot. It was good. Yeah, I love wiping – it means I am raiding and doing what I love.
The trash before Blackfuse was horrific – I was told when I first went back to raiding that the trash was really hard – and I can’t dispute that. We almost wiped, but a couple of us survived and so I therefore say it was not a wipe, just a lot of the raid died.
Blackfuse – was a pain in the buttski more because the first couple of times people were dropping their shit all over the place, but you know some people haven’t seen the fights, weren’t on vents etc so I can forgive that – but next time….yeah next time I will spank them!!
Garrosh finally makes sense now, I asked what the catalyst was for movement and that cleared everything up. So I managed to do about 160k on the fight, given that is my 3rd time on him in Flex, I think that will only increase when i get better at it and know what I am going. On one of those attempts I actually had DPS at about 220 for a sustained period!! Woot!! (Thanks to the swanky meta gem I now have!)
We killed Garrosh and then decided to do Wing 1 – I got an upgrade to a trinket I already have which was pretty cool, but other than nothing else, I used my rolls a couple of times hoping for better leggings, but managed to score gold every time.
We smashed through wing 1 and survived one boss with 30 seconds left on enrage and Sha with a hunter attacking the boss whilst we were all buffing after a trash wipe, if we can survive those things we can survive anything.
I do wonder though if there is something that changes between flex and LFR – as I can do much better DPS in LFR on the same fights – I wonder is there more movement in Flex and so you lose some measure of DPS, or do the bosses take less damage in LFR then Flex? Not sure, I will investigate though as it sort of bums me out when I can see much higher numbers in LFR on the same fights.
It was a good night, I tried to talk a little more on vents so as to not freak out my raid leader again, but I was just enjoying my time in raid, I didn’t get any Titan runestones at all!!! All those boss fights we did and ZERO!!!! Devastated!!
I have been hanging out to write this post because I wanted to thank Zwingli, but I had to wait until the next section of the chain was complete!!!
Zwingli helped me out immensely with the Trillium Bars and that is a debt I will not be able to repay for a very long time, I don’t even know where to start repaying that debt back! Thanks Zwingli – for being awesome!!
