#Blaugust 2019 – Couldn’t be done, they said.

I didn’t want to raid this week given the current state of my brain, but I was online fiddling with my toon at raid time changing gear, getting chants (Thanks Oui) and pottering around. Anyway whilst sitting in discord I got outed by a few people about why I wasn’t in the raid, so I …

#Blaugust2019 – Mental health

This is a trigger warning for the below on multiple fronts. Proceed with caution. This was a post I was deciding if I should post or not and if it has gone live, I obviously decided against my better judgement to let it go public. It is one of those stigma breaking things I need …

#Blaugust2019 – VR and PS4

I tried “Beat Sabre” for the first time months ago at Sian and Michael’s place. Since then it has been a game I could not get out of my head and one I wanted to buy. Hubby and I even spent weeks pouring over all the VR options and prices to determine the best possible …

#Blaugust2019 – DnD

Funny story, years ago I was dating a guy who roleplayed. Shadowrun I believe was the name of the game. I used to give him so much crap about it because I just thought it was weird. Fast forward a few years after my love of Guild Wars had blossomed into WoW addiction and I …

#Blaugust2019 – Dragons?

People may not know me well enough to know my slight obsession with dragons. When I mean slight I mean, I own a lot of dragon items in my house, my character names bar a couple all start with Dragon, I love all lore relating to dragons. I can’t remember when I was first made …

#Blaugust2019 – Getting to know me week

Another day, another post for Blaugust, this week is supposed to be about getting to know me. I have no idea what people would be interested in knowing about me. Part of me wants to stick to the same stuff my readers would know and another part of me wants to talk about things that …

#Blaugust2019 – Times they are a changing

So when this post goes live, our friends Ben and Oui, may have started their journey to move from Sydney to Melbourne. They were planning on leaving “early” to start their drive but I have no idea if they will actually manage it. We met them at PAX 2014 for the first time through Michael …

#Blaugust2019 – working with ladies

I still dispute calling her a lady when she looks like a monster and throws coral at us but she should be respected for her choices. We actually cleared all three Heroic bosses without issue again tonight. I wouldn’t say they are on farm but we are doing really well. People are still taking a …

#Blaugust2019 – First ever blog post.

This was a post idea on the discord channel and I thought it would be a good one to investigate. I went all the way back to my actual first post ever. 5th Feb 2003. I remember the story of my blogging so well. I was working at MLC in North Sydney and my friend …

#Blaugust2019 – ooooohhhhh Wrathion!!

I saw this news on twitter saying the continuation of the Azerite questline takes us to Finding Wrathion again. The Black dragonflight again. Also a mount based on Deathwing can be awarded during Blizzard’s upcoming birthday. – details here. I have no idea what else is in store, I didn’t read the post about Wrathion …

#Blaugust2019 – More generic stuff

All these little things happen that don’t deserve their own post, although maybe now is the time to make a single post for everything!!? Firstly let us deal with Stupid Scrollsages who cannot tell when you have walked the pattern. I must be a millimetre off… I had to do this about 5 times before …

#Blaugust2019 – Dragon Soul!!

I finally, finally!!!!! finished this achievement. Glory of the Dragon Soul raider. It is one of those ones I just left and did occassionally because it required effort. Specifically, the spine. The spine is damn hard when you are solo and as I discovered even with duo. Apophis and I did it a couple of …

#Blaugust2019 – What makes you play?

Here is the conundrum I find myself in. I want to raid. That is basically all I want to do in game. So when I set aside my personal time to group up with however many other people, I want to spend my time in the raid zones killing stuff and having a laugh. However …

#Blaugust2019 – Whispers of War Podcast

Guess who is getting interviewed on Whispers of War? Me 🙂 How exciting?!!? The above tweet went out recently and I saw it in my feed from a retweet and I thought, what the heck; I am a lady who plays WoW and loves talking about it as well – I have 30-60 mins spare! …

#Blaugust2019 – Blinded by the light

Not us, we were blinded by brilliance. BRILLIANCE!!! I was all prepared to head back into EP and kick Queen Azshara in the face, especially since I finally finished the storyline to open up the raid but we started at heroic. First, spoiler warning – if you haven’t completed the scenario handed to you in …

#Blaugust2019

I have vague recollections of seeing this a few years ago and thinking I would never be able to do it, but I am going to throw my hat in the ring this year. I am pretty lucky I happened to notice this though as it is in the middle of prep week now. Basically …

Featured images

If you have been reading my blog for a while you will have noticed I try to use the same featured images to keep a consistent theme running. I hope this helps people identify what the post is about before they read it because some people aren’t interested in some topics and I do write …

Catch up

With pictures 🙂

There is a lot of stuff in here, generic achievements, pets received by my wonderful wonderful friends, mythics run, chests looted, my husband winning mounts from his first ever kill of Jaina (in LFR no less!!), Pathfinder part 1 and various other bits and pieces, like my mage reaching 120 finally and Apophis’ first mythic run.

It has been an amazing 4 months in game 🙂 and I can’t wit to see what the new patch brings.

My biggest question is…are they bringing the dragons back? OMG it would be the most epic of expansions and I would lose my mind.

We also did a fair bit of PVP one night, just running around and killing stuff. It was loads of fun and we all got a stupid amount of achievements from them because none of us had done PVP on these characters. We might have to jump back in and do some more because the list of randoms you could end up in was about 4 the last time we did it, not it is about 25 or something incredible.

Where did I go?

So yeah, things got super crazy! I got lost in some timey whimey vortex and here we are. 4 months since my last post…seems incredible to me. I have been taking screenshots with the intentions of posting them…maybe I will post a small collection in the next couple of days as gallery so you can …

Where have all the bloggers gone?

So a memory came up in my facebook feed today which made me so happy but also kind of sad. I am not the only person to notice that the blogosphere seems to have reduced in size somewhat in the last couple of years. It is something I have discussed a few times with people …
