Raiding mojo

I lost it…or misplaced it….or left it completely behind somewhere this week….not raiding for one week really kills any mojo I was building up.

We did a combined run with a guild that is looking into merging or combining or something….they seemed ok, had a fascination with kitties and licking – I won’t go into too much detail but I am sure you can all figure that one out.  They had a couple of completely filthy minds, which I loved :)  I of course Ninjad some images of everyone grouped up before boss pulls :)

Master of the way!!!

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 finally..

Cooking with a fantastic view!

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.

Wrathion Chapter 3

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!!

Transmogging my own

So, I got sick and tired of never having enough space in my mages bags, since I came back in December, I have been running with under 10 bags slots free due to  my bank, void storage and bags all carrying transmog gear. Yup. All full…well not just transmog gear, tabards take up a huge percentage of space as well, but I can’t bear to part with them.

Either way, I decided to ditch some of the Tier gear that is relatively easy to come buy in game and this opened up some space – I now have like 20 slots free in my void storage, which I can start shuffling gear into!!  WOOT!

Of course during this winter clean, I decided I should probably actually create an outfit for my girl..it took me a while to come up with something I liked.  But thanks to Luxy the weapon I needed was pretty easy to come by (she was my own personal cheer squad – telling me I could get the weapon!)  after about 30 minutes of camping; the rare appeared, died and dropped the Pathwalker Greatstaff I wanted.

So here is my mage, all sexy and spruced, what do you think?  The only piece I am still needing is the gloves – which are currently being made by a guildie – they require dreamcloth…Don Tayo’s inferno mittens – yuck!  So the gloves will change eventually..but it doesn’t really change the look much at all anyway.

Restore the Balance

Hubby and I have been wanting to do this achievement for a while and although it is simple as cake (which is a lie!!) we just hadn’t done it.

The panda cinematic was, like all the others, superb and really sucked me into the land of dragons!!! This felt like something we NEEDED to do.  Poor crooked Incense holder.  All broken and down trodden by Orcs and Humans and their race wars.

But after a few seconds worth of effort we restored the balance! Isn’t it a stunning visual??

Beavertown

Yeah, busy like beavers…you thought I was going to the gutter again didn’t you :p naught naughty readers!!!

I have barely been online this past week due to things..just random things, but things nonetheless.

Our guild got to level 10, I missed it sadly, but I was there for our level 11 ding!  YAY!

I also discovered, stupidly slow again, that there is no cap on the dailies anymore. I knew it was happening but didn’t think to check as I thought it was a MoP thing.  So I spent one day going nuts with the dailies and then haven’t done them since. I must get another couple of days done, on a couple of different toons, I want to have more money saved up for MoP.

My shammy managed to beg a couple of runs with the guild and now has enough gear to get into the twilight heroics, however, I am a little meh about playing her as enhancement…I shall see how it goes though, I am missing totems, it was what I played the class for. Apparently Elemental is the way to go!

I am certain my levelling experience through MoP will be my mage, druid, paladin, warrior.  The last two being interchangable depending on time factors etc.  In previous expacs I went nuts with my mage doing everything possible before worrying about the next, however there is no demand for that this time so I will just get them to 90 and spend time alternating on them.  Aside from raiding requirements on my mage of course :)

I will probably level a monk with the frosties so I have a healer/tanking toon over there, rather than just a tank.

I am going away this weekend as well, so will be MIA a little bit, hopefully will get online tonight for a run of some kind, and a scenario or two :)  I can’t wait to see it!!!

This is the last week in cataclysm, and I am sad and happy and excited and nervous and so many emotions.  As alway,s I get emotional when it comes to this game. I love it.  I love the world and I love the story.  I am amazed that people have created this just for my pleasure :)  I could think of nothing better than spending my days playing this game and just chilling out with my pets and dragons and oomkins :)

I can honestly say, hand on heart, that I have never had a problem with the changes or things that Blizzard do to this game.  So far, each time has been better with awesome changes and more fun.  I can’t wait for Pandaria and I am just excited to be blogging through another xpac!!

 

Raiding and my obsession.

Yes.

Obsessed.

I had not been raiding for an entire week.  ONE WEEK!  I was having withdrawals until last night when I got pulled into a full DS run by some friends :)  We did Mor’chok heroic and that was about it, the rest we ran like manics through.  I felt so good afterwards…just having been in a raid was enough to satisfy me for a few days.

As mentioned previously I am in the process of updating our guild website with all the raiding information and strats I can find for MoP.  I already have most of Mogu’shan vaults committed to memory, just the last 2 I need to work on a little more.

I have done a couple of the Heart of Fear bosses, mostly committed to memory – they look like fantastic fights!  Can’t wait! But I have done nothing about the middle raid yet.  Yes I have been slack.  But committing that many bosses to memory is hard work let me tell you :)

All this raiding information has made me literally wanting to raid.  I want the kill and I really want to see us do it – I don’t want to fail as a raid leader, I want to push people to be better and I want to be better myself.

This of course brings me to my mage.  I sucked at arcane, I am now sucking at frost and I am going to try fire at some point over the next few weeks – probably whilst levelling?  I am feeling very very uncomfortable on my mage and completely out of depth.  I was hoping a run in DS would help me practice the frost rotation and in all honesty I was pathetic.  For someone with my gear I should be kicking arse.  Is this the end of my mage?  Have I really come this far to not be able to do another xpac on her?

NO NO NO NO NO!!!!  I will not give up just because shit got hard!  If I stop playing her its because I want to…not because I can’t handle the changes!  SCREW YOU no self confidence!!  I’ll show you!!

errr….

Sorry I momentarily lost my train of thought….and it doesn’t want to come back. So I shall leave you here with my little tangent of anger at myself :)  LOL

Also found out the store I am picking up my collector’s edition from – isn’t having a midnight launch like they have every other xpac..so now I am going to just go to work on Tuesday, pick up my copy on the way home and get Wednesday off instead. No midnight launch for me :(

And so it starts

I spent last night’s shut down, updating our guild forums with strats and info for the MoP raids coming up :)

Yes, I am slightly obsessed about it all.  I really want the guild to succeed and push content.  I doubt we are a server first kind of guild, given I don’t know what kind of time levelling is going to take, but I would hope we can kick some butt early.

The bosses I have been putting up there don’t seem all that difficult and I honestly believe a solid group can get through them easily enough. Now if we could just find a tank and some DPS!

I was having fun watching videos and reading notes and then coming up with a strat from it all. I have missed starting new content :)

I am so excited that MoP is 2 weeks away – I must find out about the midnight launch as I need to finish paying for my copy etc, I also have to organise to have the Tuesday off since there is no way I am going to work that day! Oh I am so excited!!

OMG OMG OMG!!!

Sorry post heavy today!!!
25 September 2012!!!!

MOP IS RELEASED!!

I have just ordered my collectors edition, and hubby will be ordering the digital deluxe – I am forcing him to as I think he will like the mount :)

SQUEEEEE!!!
My excitement has peaked today and I can’t deal with it!!

The Dark Within is recruiting!

Oh yeah, I am spamming my blog for recruitment now!!  Like you wouldn’t :p

Please pass this info on, link to it, retweet it, just get it out there please blogosphere!

Hordeside Nagrand.

The current plan, so I am told, is to just raid Wednesday nights from 7-10pm Australian Eastern Standard Time until MoP details have been released and confirmed etc.  We want to use this time to build up the guild, the rapport within a raiding team and to produce a group that can be progression focused.  When MoP is released and we have a raiding force at level 90 we only want to add one day to the raiding times, but will depend on amount of content released and how well the team works together to get content cleared.

We are wanting people who can play their class and watch timers at the same time, who can get out of the fire and who can actually be part of guild life – including running older content for others in the team or for shits and giggles occasionally.

We are not recruiting AFKers, loot focused people or those who cannot spend their own time looking into boss fights to know what is expected of their role during that fight.

Non raiding, social members are more then welcome as well. Most of the guild is made up of couples (at the moment) with all bar one of us being over the 21 year old bracket.  We are not tolerant of bullying!  Be warned though we can be quite filthy and have trouble getting our minds out of the gutter.

The aim is to get our numbers up before MoP and our guild level up a little bit, we are almost level 2 now.

If you have read my blog at all, you will appreciate the kind of player I would like to raid with, and you know what kind of person I am in game.  So please feel free to ask me anything via comments or direct with my gmail email address of onyxiia.
