Lominari and I managed to get the rest of the Iron invasion questline done and Luxy has said the pet is a pretty good one for battles, so I have added it to my favourites to get levelled.
Lom has managed to pick up a bug somewhere so my plans to do UBRS with him on Friday got squashed. Instead i settled in for a night of farming for a Bronze Whelping. Luxy said she gave up after 9 hours of farming, and someone else said they got one after a few kills. I had killed maybe 50 mobs when McTacky started organise a Friday night fun run and I was going to pass and farm this pet. However, Luxy guilt tripped me and I got sucked in.
I hadn’t planned on really chasing achievements but some where so easy to get it was well worth it. I dragged Lominari along on his rogue so that he could pick pocket hagara when we got to her.
However, the getting to Hagara was hilarious. Thohand wanted to join us but got stuck on loading screens…he also went around the entire map of Azeroth to get to us…eventually he joined us at Yor’sahj.
Everyone was playing with toys whilst we were waiting for him to turn up, it was funny. I got completely smashed as well, screen was very very fuzzy.
Getting the achievement on Hagara for holding hands well funny as hell, McTacky was getting annoyed with me because he kept saying “walk towards me” , “come to me”, “where i Am” etc but…all I could see was balls of lightening and Luxy with a symbol on her head….I would not have been able to tell you where anyone was in that line of people. We eventually did get it, but sadly not for the people who had died already, so I feel bad..for them.
The only fight that wasn’t a cake walk was Spine, you can’t ignore mechanics really and we wiped a couple of times, but really once we got the healing sorted out it was easy.
Thanks to the group I only have to get Red & Green combo on Yor’sahj and the platforms on Deathwing that aren’t Ysera’s platform. So a minimum, three more weeks to go in there. I really didn’t think i would get so many done, I am very grateful Mctacky organised something and I am happy Luxy guilted me into going. Another mount is within reach.
We then headed off briefly to do Halion in Ruby Sanctum, clearing the trash took us 80 times longer than to kill the boss.
We did a few old school runs the other night to clear off some of the guild achievements that hadn’t yet been done. We headed to Firelands (YIPPEE) I managed to get a few more cinders. I have had no luck with Oqueue at all. Every raid I sign up for never develops into anything and I never get invites, aside from the one FL 25H I tried with 4 people and we wiped on Beth about 4 times so I left.
I must keep trying though I as I really really need my cinders. I wish I could tag along with Aza/Ex/Lushen when they go, but they don’t follow a schedule so I never know when they are going.
Anyway, we smashed through it very quickly and got to see his little legs again Of course the DPS is too high it causes issues during the actual fight, but it is over very quickly so it is easy to manage.
I also managed to get exalted, which I was not expecting. I thought I had another couple of clears before that would happen! I think that puts me at like 62 or something for exalted reputations.
We then did Nefarian and Cho’gall on heroic and I got a lot of achievements for them! We also did the Four winds.
And guild achievements for the last bosses was pretty exciting I of course died on Nefarian and was in the lava when they killed him. I got up onto my podium and then blown back into the lava after about 3 seconds and I couldn’t get back out. :(
We also did Sinestra, whom I had never seen before. It was a pretty cool fight but overall I don’t think it would have been too hard to get a hang of back in the day, it would have been pretty intense – without a doubt!!
I really wasn’t comfortable jumping down a random hole! But the path leading to her little section was pretty nice and fiery…I thought it was very pretty for a den of hell and corruption.
The She-devil herself!!
And the achievement for a few minutes work on her little drakes!
For some reason we missed out on the achievement for no one dying, we lost one person after the achievements popped and the boss was dead. So we are not sure what happened with that. It was so much fun to just sit on vents and smash through everything whilst having a joke and a laugh.
Yeah I was missing in action
Happy New years and all that jazz!!! I hope everyone had a great night? Tell me stories!! heehh
Mine was a very quiet night, the weather was too hot to permit much drinking, so we just chilled out and leveled worgens :) Yes our new years tradition is LANning at a friends place and playing WoW/Drinking/Chatting :D It has become a tradition of sorts and we always have fun :D We missed out on the fireworks in a major city though
I have been popping into game every few days and doing bits and pieces, I am only 30% off hitting level 85, so I am slowly getting there. I have had a recent spat of achievements though and that is pretty exciting
So for all the details
I am officially over it.
I am about 3 bubbles away from 84 and I don’t think I want to put up with the shit anymore. I love the game, but seriously the people should all be shot in the damn head and never allowed to play. I would love for a server where i don’t have to play with people that piss me off….yeah fairly broad range I would probably be playing by myself most of the time, no different to now really.
Today’s tirade is brought to you by LFD tool. I was just queued up for 35 minutes, I got into the instance and the leader asked me to leave so he could level a guildie. I had just gotten into a fucking run! I made some comment and then just dropped group, being asked that just pissed me off and so I knew I was likely to be pissed at the entire group. Yeah pretty lame I know, but it just pisses me off that I queue for 35 minutes, get stuck with a deserter buff because a guildie can’t run some fucking quests…..my second experience in running dungeons has not been any better than my first.
Let me tell you about my first dungeon experience, tank kept running in and pulling mobs, groups of them, inevitably we would get a second group and we would die. This happened about 4 times, he then went off at the DPS for not targeting the correct mobs….on that specific pull mind you – he went with one of thr DPS outside, I was trying to sheep a caster that was attacking the healer and I am pretty sure our last DPS was attacking the mob he wanted. We wiped on every trash pull and in the end after about 6 deaths and 50g, and then being told we were not doing enough dps because he saw someone doing 15k dps and we sucked, I decided to drop group…..
This does not include all the wankers out there stealing mobs, asking how to do a quest instead of reading the damn thing and generlaly just being a nuisance in game. I have logged out now as I am just too annoyed at once again not getting anywhere.
I am also pissed at hubby and co, as we were supposed to be starting a guild together and now neither of them are showing any interest which means I could have been levelling with people and getting a guild built up, instead I am having to deal with buttmonkeys……GAHHHHHH!!!!!!!
Are we all still enjoying Cata?
Yeah I am a slow arse I know, but I am just kind of enjoying the ride to 85, last time; when levelling to 80, I rushed through and then was bored waiting for others to catch up. So this time I am just getting there in my own time.
I haven’t really had much of a chance to play anyway, I have just been so busy, but this week I plan to get to 85 and then start on my warrior whilst levelling my professions on my mage. A bit of down time never hurt anyone!
I like Hyjal, am glad it is over though, I was getting a little drained towards the end of it. I am currently questing in Deepholm, which I love, it’s a lovely area. I attempted to run an instance this morning, one of the ones in deepholm, and it was so fail I ended up leaving after the 4th wipe. The tank would just run in and grab mobs, no CC, and no explanation, so I was trying to my best to keep mobs of the healers and then he would have a go about not targetting the right mobs etc. Well I am sorry, I haven’t been here before and a little pre information would be more useful than post degradation. So I left. I decided I qould be better of questing trhen spending hours wiping because they want to be big shots.
Bah humbug is all I have to say!!
All good though, I will jump back in shortly and get to 83 tonight, if I can. I am going to see MUSE tomorrow night so I doubt I will be playing much, so wanna get there before the end if the week!!!
What are your initial thoughts about the Cataclysm expansion?
It’s a topic you can take anywhere you’d like. What’s your favourite new zone? What do you think of the instances? Any screenshots you’d like to share? Anything you’re excited to get started on? Whatever might come to mind regarding the main question
This is likely going to be a massively long post, with pictures and all, so I will be placing it behind a cut for you to read over at your leisure :D Follow me through to my initial thoughts on Cata during day 1 and 2 of my experience.
To make this a more comprehansive topic, I created a goblin toon as well and played through the starting area to get a better feel of what changes have been made, some of the things were before Cata in the last patch, but to me they make up the cata offering, so please don’t get pedantic about it being released 2 weeks before cata :)
I spent about 2 hours the other night trying to to get to Exodar to do the final table, but for some reason I just kept doing things wrong. I kepy drowning of fatigure trying to get to teldrassil, kept forgetting to use my water walking potion :/ The the guards would be kill me before I had a chance to get onto the boat once I got onto Teldrassil, being they are level 85 now I must have managed to just run the exact path that gathered them all.
In the end I begged my husband to come with me so he could sacrifice himself and attract the guards whilst I ran through….We did this quote successfully and he said to me “Um what was so hard about that???” and I just felt so dumb……until I noticed him at a third health and shielded and healing…ahhhh so it was almost death for you as well…..hehehe
Anyway I am glad I got it done, means I have another pet, and another title
I have also collected all the new tabards for the main cities – except undercity i think…I need to find their quartermaster, but pretty cool that I have a bunch of new tabards to wear. I don’t need the rep – except for the new Bilgewater Cartel obvioulsy once Cata drops. I am hoping they create some new achievements for collectors as we have gone stale – although I do still need to work on my mount one…I am 83 of 100….
So sad I didn’t get to log in this morning briefly before I had to go to work :( and I will be home late tonight so won’t get online until probably 9-10pm :!
So many things I am looking forward to in this patch
Mainly having to regem all my gear for just int, get rid of all those extra stats and crap – I like :) I have to investigate crit/haste before I go too nuts but YAY no more SP!!!
All the new Guild interface options of professions etc will be awesome, can’t wait to have a fiddle with all that :
The normal UI looks heaps better as well, loving the spell book.
and last but not least:
POLYMORPH MONKEY!!!!!!! OH HELL YES!!! Shame it is a glyph – am actually annoyed I won’t be able to have both penguin and monkey – or maybe I can? No idea…will find out tonight when I go and have a squizz
Isaw this post
and thought what a great idea, so – I am sorry Anexxia – I am stealing your idea and running with it
My Bucketlist :
Get my Zandalar rep up on my mage
Farm the raptor and Tiger bosses
Farm the raptor mount in Ungoro
Run deadmines, one more time
Take some more pictures – specifically in Westfall, Darkshire, Auberdine and Southshore
Farm my red and emerald whelps
Try and complete more Argent tournie dailies so I can get my horde pets/mounts – then not have to do them ever again once I hit 85!!!
Finally – save up gold!!! and lots of it…
According to the sites and based on the Arena season – might be Dec 7th for release!!! OMMMGGG!!!!!
