LOLHEALZ

Did I ever tell you about the run we did a few weeks ago because Ben’s nephew cracked the wobblies at his uncle for not running anything with him?  If I didn’t, I am sorry but it was pretty hilarious.  If I have sorry, you are going to sit through the story again.

Ben decided to pull a group of us together to run his nephew, Hayden (sp?) through Motherlode and sadly Michael was not up to doing another mythic.  No one else was responding and so, I stupidly offered to heal.  From my memory it was Me healing, Drew tanking, Ben, Hayden and poor Simon.

We did motherlode as it is easiest to get to and it was horrific. I didn’t have any mouseover macros set up, I had no experience healing as a druid and even less just healing in general.  Hayden kept pulling extra mobs on his way back to the group after dying and Ben kept telling him off until he quietly said “well, I haven’t ever been here before!” Oh. Oops. Sorry love. It was so hilarious. The entire run was just a mess of everyone pulling threat and extra mobs and me trying to heal through it with all buttons that look green!!!  Thankfully that ended early as the server decided to do a restart and we were all put out of our misery.

So if that wasn’t enough of a horrid experience I offered to heal again just recently because we wanted to do a run but Michael was again, unavailable.  Noticing a theme here?? What is our heals doing!??! I believe he was going for a run…I mean…come on… WoW > Exercise? LOL.

It was well worth it though because we got a pet out of it!! It was the entire reason we chose King’s rest; to get the pet – since I was going to heal we figured it wouldn’t be too hard on me.

I only managed to kill people a few times as I set up my mouseovers before we went in which was so much better.  I have so much respect for healers because I have no idea how you heal and move at the same time.  I died on the Tribe of Elder boss after we killed the first one, so Ben laid his hands on Drew at one point and they managed to kill the boss without me.

I couldn’t cast anything in the embalmer room because those stupid slimes targeted me the entire time. I was – once again – cursing about them violently.  They don’t target random – they target me. Only.  Like the last boss in Motherlode – it is me – every single time with the missile. Every time.   I have  no idea how to heal when I literally spend the entire time moving. OMG I was angry.  I really  do not understand how healers have the calmness of mind to do the job.  I think raid healing would be much easier because you are not the only person there but 5 mans. It is like a stress level I cannot deal with, the only time I felt ok was when Drew had all the aggro and was the only taking actual damage, but the second someone else took aggro it was OMGWTFHEALZ!!!!!!! Horrid. HORRID!!  I also refuse to create a healing set when I am still trying to get a tanking set and keep my balance set up to date.  Too hard. TOO HARD BLIZZARD!!!

So how do we get the pet?  In the last boss room of King’s Rest, there are 2 large sarcophagi at the back of the room (left and right) and a far distance apart.  You need to have two people ready to stand on the little triangle/ shape on the ground in front of the sarcophagi just after you pull the boss – one left and one right.   The triangle shape will have no interaction.  Once you pull the boss, you need to wait for some tiny little fairy lights to appear around the triangle on the ground.  When you see the lights the two people stand on their own side and you have to stand there until the sarcophagi starts to shake and rumble.  It took about a minute for it to happen with us. So just be patient and have your healer keep the tank alive whilst you wait.   You can then kill the boss once you have the rumbling sarcophagi happen.

You cannot do it on heroic or keystone. You have to go in on mythic 0 only!

Grats on the How to Keep a Mummy achievement! Look how cute he is!?!?!  JUST LOOK!!!!

Never forget!

There are some days when you wonder why you keep chasing things in game when you consider the hours you roam around and around and around and around and around……

I used every mod I could, I used way points and handy notes and omg…the hours.

Are you wondering what the heck I am talking about?

Do these stupid crystals look familiar? If not, get on it and get yourself a set of the most awesome Reins of the Long-Forgotten Hippogryph. You spend half of your remaining life flying around Aszuna looking for Ephemeral Crystal and once you click 5 of them you get the mount.

You may remember hubby got his mount quite a while ago and since then whenever I have been in Aszuna I have checked for the crystals. On 4 different occassions I have spent over 3 hours flying around looking for the 5th crystal. No success until now!

I went to bed the other night after finishing a first aid quest in Aszuna and was thinking that my luck would dictate a crystal would be visible. And it was. As it was midnight already, I went to bed parked next to the one I found in the hopes that when I woke up it would still be there. And it was!  Hubby came and helped me and I was adding the one I had found to my handy notes to make it easier.  I eventually found my 4th one and then Pracey came to give us a hand as well.  It was so good to catch up with him on discord and talk shit.   I then found my fifth crystal.  In total I was flying around for about 3.5 hours.

Tips to chasing this mount:

  • Only one person can get this mount when the crystals are up.
  • The crytals spawn every 8-12 hours
  • Once you click the crystal, it stays there, but cannot be clicked by you again.
  • You can see them from a very long distance.
  • They can be in water/caves and between bushes (so hard to see).

From the amount of times I have tried this, I strongly believe the crystals have an internal timer as well.  Some of the crystals spawn in locations after having been searched thoroughly – seemed like about 20-40 minutes between spawns.

My last crystal was in a location I checked multiple times over the 3.5 hours and like…out in the open – really obvious. It would have been impossible to miss.

Either way!!  I am so freaking happy to finally have this mount! Thanks Hubby and Pracey for keeping me company during the long hours and thanks for giving me the crystal mojo.

Thank Yogg I will never have to do that again.

A few weeks ago I asked my buddies if they wanted to get the Lucid Nightmare mount and for a multitude of reasons we never managed to actually get a time for us to be online as a group. (Explains why no mythics either hey?)  So…hubby and I sort of…did it anyway…without them.

I do feel pretty bad, but having done it now; we could help them get through it faster 🙂 if we can hook up a time.

From everything I had read it was going to be a rough ride and I can definitely agree with that sentiment.  I think all up it took us about 6 hours, split over 2 nights.  Not really all that bad but it is sometimes rage inducing without the proper knowledge.

There are many guides about it so I won’t go into all that much detail but some parts I will mention.  We essentially used the guide in the comments section here by Nightswifty.  Bless their heart whoever they are!

It starts in Curios & Moore uptairs; find the scroll, click the scroll, get the clue and then head to Ulduar.  How anyone figures out these things, I have no idea, but props to them because they are legendary. Simply legendary. Apparently this clue pointed to the release date of Ulduar…WTF?

Kill XT and clear his room and crack a leaver on the NW side of the room, click the lights in a pattern that apparently resembles a cog? (Sure…it does…if you squint real hard?)

Head to AQ40 and past C’Thun’s room near the quest givers there is a table and you have to play the JewelCraft game except this time it is all Old god images.  I want this version – like a glyph or something I can use to change mine.

You have to get 5 brains in a row,  I just kept playing until it happened. Hubby finished before me even though I had to explain how to even play it. <hurumpf>

You have to get a Shadoweave Mask from the AH or a tailor if they have the pattern, ours were $4000 each when we did this. Then head to Deepholm and search for a fissure in the ground which is nowhere near the circling worm deep in an underground cave, just head into the actual cave areas and search near the large rocks. We hunted around the worm for ages thinking it was near him. It wasn’t.

You fall through the ground, find a chair equip your mask, touch the skull and then find out you have to go to Gnomer. You play with some gears, fiddle with some knobs, then find out you have to go to Val’sharah.  In the house with the crazy bird Wraithtalon out the front. He attacked me when doing the puzzle as well, so I suggest you stand toward the back of the house.

You click on a brain and start a puzzle which is all dots and red lines.  You need to make all the lines blue.

Tips:

  • They are separate shapes and not one together so I ended up with 5 different  smaller shapes.
  • You need to click two of the dots to swap at a time. That is how you move the lines around.

Hubby also finished this one before me and had to tell me how to swap the lines around as I was just clicking randomly…and badly.

You then head to the hell hole that is the Endless Halls.  I cannot stress enough – under no circumstances should you do this part without getting the Lucid Nightmare Helper mod. If you prefer rage, anger, hatred and your conversion to the dark side to have begun at this point in your life – ignore the above.

It maps the direction you go and allows you to back track. You mark when you hit an orb or a rune and then just follow yourself back to the spots.  It can be time consuming but it is way easier than drawing maps, using excel or running randomly through hell – and we tried both methods and this was by far the easier one.

Tips:

  • Do not pick up any orbs until you have all the orbs and runes marked on your map. Once used they disappear and you have no point of reference.
  • Don’t bother wasting time marking which way the rooms are blocked in the mod – you don’t need it if you just back track.
  • The map changes every day and is different for each character. If you login and out on the same day, you have to start again but the map will be the same.
  • I have no idea if I should have linked or skipped the rooms when the mod asked me but in the end I managed to just back track anyway thanks to the numbering.
  • This took us about an hour to complete, possibly 1.5. I don’t know…I was so exhausted by the end.

Once complete you head to Karazhan, you are looking for the crypt next to the pet battle lady.

You had into the crypt and you need to find the lower part.  There is a hole that you need to jump down which lands into a pool of water. If you run out ahead of you there will be a underwater pool of death which is horrific called the Upside Down sinners.

The entire chamber is people hanging up side down. Freaky as hell. You have gone too far if you end up in there anyway but if you don’t mind being freaked the hell out go and have a swim with them.  There are some support beams to the right as you come out of the hole and that is the way to the prize!

Look at us with out treasure box!! So ecstatic to be staring at this box!

I cannot say if the mount was worth it or not, but I am very happy to have it 🙂 Good luck to everyone chasing this one – it is very pretty and has purple hoof prints and does a twirling prancy thing when you the space bar.

Can’t get no….satisfaction

I wonder if I am showing my age, or music preference, by the title and image??  Anyway,  Last night was pretty limited game time, just doing my dailies on my mage..stupid august Celestials!!  I am going to scream like a crazy woman!!  I am even doing the Tiller daily for the extra rep with both Shadow Pan and August Celestials.  I just want the pattern for that stupid bag!!

Both me and hubby on his tailor, have been making cloth every single day so we can make some bags when we get the pattern, but it is seriously going to cause me mental breakdown.

e5d3_damage_calm-500x500

I think I have just hit revered with Shadow Pan – Woot for extra rep token and I am just into honoured for the Celestials…HONOURED!!??!!!?  GAHHHH!!!!  At  this rate I will be exalted by the time Warlords comes out… :p  In truth though, I think I have done really well to get my reps up as much as I have since being back at the start of December.  I really don’t know how you guys – or anyone – managed to get to exalted with them!!  I really don’t!!  Tips appreciated!!

reputations

I really want to start working on my Anglers and I should try and get the last bit of the Klaxxi done – I have extra rep now so it really wouldn’t take all that long, anyway every night it depends on my time available…how many quests I can get done in between everything else I need to get done.

On a side note, I bought my hubby they Fey Dragon mount as a present 🙂  He was mentioning how he liked it so I sent it to him as the pack with the brew dog.  We may have missed the Make-a-wish donation, but it was still cheaper to buy the set.  I have been asking me to send me pictures, I am sure all you obsessed people will understand why…and the pictures he has been sending me are completely impossible….the first two examples you will find below…and after I advised him to send me a picture with the actual dragon in it, he finally did 🙂

oh, is that you up the back?

Looks cool as shadow - but...what does it look like??
Looks cool as shadow – but…what does it look like??

I did giggle….not a collector or obsessive blogger but I appreciated the effort he put in, he could have chosen not to send me images, which I may have had to kill him for later!  This is one of the next pictures i got, which is much better!!

I see you!

I shall follow hubby around tonight and drool over his new mount because it is bloody awesome!!!  and I may take a few hundred pictures of it, but I won’t bore you guys with more images!

Kirin Tor Mini Mage!!!!

O.O yeah baby!!!!

Took just under 18 months :p to finally get it

I spent the ENTIRE day logged into WOW from my PC – which I can see from the kitchen or on the laptop – being carried around the house with me because I was determined to get the last 2 books!!

I nearly missed one because I was checking soemthing out on my mac and not watching my pc, but someone got the Higher learning achievement and i happened to notice out of the corner of my eye.

Then finally…and about 5.30 this afternoon, whilst sitting on the floor like a drunken hooker, I saw a book spawn on the shelf.

 

I didn’t realise you got a mail with a little book to keep forever 🙂 My collector OCD went into overdrive excitement!

My very own Kirin Tor mini mage!

 

Long, Strange, Trip

Finally!!!

 

I got me a Violet Drake!

I only had one more day to get it and I did not want to miss out this year 🙂  I always fail because of the PVP achievements you need for Children’s week, not being a big PVPer, I have no res gear and no PVP skills 🙂  I was getting really annoyed after constant failure that I was crying in guild chat.  A guildie offered to help me out and as you can see from the above – we were successful!

4/4 matches as well, got to every single one of them.  WSG was a worry as not one horde person came to get our flag until about 1 minute left on the game so we smashed him and got my last one.  I also got the damage control achievement in AB for doing 300k damage in one match.  I never thought I would see that achievement, so I was a little chuffed with myself – seriously, I normally spend an entire game dead or ressing – so to get any damage was pretty impressive for me!

The Violet put me at 99 mounts, so I logged off to check the armoury and see what I was missing for the last one to get to 100, and discovered that I hadn’t bought all the nether wing drakes, I was missing two of them 🙂  So Bam!  Another achievement today as well 🙂  4 new mounts in total, and a new title and lots of achievements!  Was so much fun.

I then decided to take my poor unloved druid to LFR and won a necklace on her- YAY, and I also discovered that I bought a wrong tier piece as the 2 set bonus isn’t working because I have one boomy and one resto piece – yes I feel like a right royal twat and am so embarrassed about it 🙂  So I have to fix that ASAP!!  My poor baby girl.
