#Blaugust2019 – Classic Lies

So I know, I know!! I posted less than a few days ago saying I wasn’t going to jump into Classic again, but then Apophis mentioned some people in our first original guild wanted to get the band back together and I got all giddy and Classic crazed. I was working from home due to… Read More #Blaugust2019 – Classic Lies

#Blaugust2019 – Classic

I won’t be playing Classic, in fact I haven’t even installed it. I played on the beta weekend a few months ago and whilst I was all nostalgic for the game, it was enough of a taste to remind of why I don’t need to go back there. This tweet reinforced that in my mind.… Read More #Blaugust2019 – Classic

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… Read More Catch up

Playing “Classic” thanks to a virtual ticket

I have fond memories of Vanilla WoW.  I met a lot of wonderful people and some which have stayed friends through the many xpacs that followed and the adulting that accompanied those xpacs. What I can say without a shadow of a doubt is that returning to Classic is both terrifying and awful at the… Read More Playing “Classic” thanks to a virtual ticket

Shared topic 42: What is your favourite role and why?

This week’s topic from Z and Cinder is a nice one: Do you love being the shield that protects your group, or the damage dealer that melts the mobs before you or the healer at the back shaking your head at the people standing in fire and giving you something to do? We’d also love… Read More Shared topic 42: What is your favourite role and why?

Topic 38: How do you level in Battle for Azeroth?

Z and Cinder bring us another interesting topic this week which you can find here. Do you go about things your own way, taking quests as they come? Do you focus on just the main storyline? Do you go as fast as you can to get to maximum level, story be damned? Or are you… Read More Topic 38: How do you level in Battle for Azeroth?

Quests…so many quests

It is just endless and all over the place. I sort of like it. Sort of.  There is this constant underlying anxiety to playing at the moment as you have no idea if you have actually finished with the line or if they are going to spring some more on you.   Fred posted on our… Read More Quests…so many quests

Demon hunters are go!

Whilst waiting for release date, like many other people we had to find things to do, hubby and I decided to finish off the Demonhunters and get our class mount. We noticed whilst running around that mine is all purple and hubby is all green. We are like the ultimate Illidan pairing 🙂  I thought… Read More Demon hunters are go!

What a long strange trip it was

Ever since getting my violet mount a few years back I pretty much stopped paying attention to the world events. Not for any real reason other than I just didn’t want to fly around and collect things anymore 🙂  But midsummer festival was upon us and so I flew around and scored a couple more… Read More What a long strange trip it was

Clearing out the corruption

I finally had some time and motivation to jump online and do the continuation of the quest line in Silithus. Mithraic and my druid headed over to the sword sticking out of Azeroth’s poor heart and I was, once again, greatly impressed with the size of this weapon. It really is a very terrifying visage!… Read More Clearing out the corruption

Your absence is duly noted!

I would like to be able to give you some wonderful story of redemption, quests, adventure and dragons to explain where I have been,  sadly it is just life. Adjusting to a new routine is taking longer than expected and I honestly am not feeling great about it. I am highly stressed and missing a… Read More Your absence is duly noted!

My Legion Bucketlist

A few weeks ago I saw posts going around about people’s bucketlists and I have watched multiple videos about the topic since the release date of BfA was announced. So I thought I should actually gather my thoughts and post one so I can refer to and sucker my friends in to help me 😀 … Read More My Legion Bucketlist

Mage tower challenge

Yeah. So – I think you are all crazy and I liken this to that time in Pandaland when we were required to hit silver in the proving grounds before we could run heroics. Thank the old ones there isn’t anything gated behind this except some appearances which are generally meh. Well that is not… Read More Mage tower challenge

Brawling

On the back of our very first guest post by Pracey, I thought I would write about my brawling experience the other night.  I had started the brawl guild a few weeks ago and managed to get stuck on rank 2 or something.  My intention was to get it done before xpac hits and thanks… Read More Brawling

Drakes…Drakes…and more elusive drakes.

You probably won’t believe this, but I am still chasing dragons for the Awake the Drake achievement.  Given my love of all things dragon, it pains me, it hurts. Deep inside. I have been “regularly” chasing down 2 of them – Onyxia and Malygos. I have wanted Onyxia as a mount since the first time… Read More Drakes…Drakes…and more elusive drakes.

Thank you Horridon

Finally, after getting my butt into gear, I got my 70 reputation achievement. This makes me super proud.  I know it isn’t all that exciting for some, but that is a lot of work and a lot of hours spent grinding and farming. Maybe that is actually depressing?  LOL Panser from Trade chat spoke to… Read More Thank you Horridon

Running old school

I had a free night and decided to just have some fun for me. I was PMSing and completely over everyone and everything so just wanted to mess around. I decided to start completing the old raids that show as incomplete in my armory. I had thought I had completed more, but I guess over… Read More Running old school

The Riddle and the worm

Drew and I were watching the following video about obtaining the Lucid Nightmare mount by Bellular Gaming. It reminded me of the Riddler’s Mind-Worm which I have been wanting to get for a while. I had never bothered as I figured it would take me a heck of a lot longer than I was willing,… Read More The Riddle and the worm

Balance of power….I kid you not…still…

The illustrious Nelly’s raid for my nightshards was a pretty resounding success. Apparently my terrible drop rate was unusual and I should have gotten more.  Well they dropped in the raid. Every boss gave me something – thankfully. I am extremely grateful to this group of people for coming along and helping me smash through… Read More Balance of power….I kid you not…still…

Raiding: The struggle is real

Since we killed Heroic Argus, we have barely managed to scrape together a raid team.  We can get a group into the raid but we are super melee heavy and lacking on ranged, and also very few with crowd control to help on Aggramar. What annoys me about this is that Blizzard have been going… Read More Raiding: The struggle is real
