Someone pinch me…hard…

Or gentle…either way I can’t believe this at all. I had simply put this into the pile of things I might get done eventually but was giving up on actually believing it would happen. Craig messaged me a couple of days ago trying to convince me to come on a run and get myself carried …

Blizzard why did you betray me this way? After everything I have given you.

I cannot preface this post enough to explain how everything that follows stems from a deep sadness at being misled by Blizzard at a time that should have been amazing. I do not see the silver lining on this. We were going to run some mythics for the weekly quest however Michael was eating dinner; …

Mythics: 2 hours of time just gone…stupid Lower Kara

This is one of the mythics our group keeps running and we just cannot seem to get the bosses.  We normally give it a few attempts and then just call it quits.  Now though – we can say different. We had a purpose…Screw the timer and let’s just get it done for Michael so he …

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 …

Torment of Friendship

Sometimes when you are in a guild, you feel like you have found a home. A place where you can have fun, relax, beat up some baddies and just enjoy even more time in Azeroth. I have never been one for guild halls as ideas because I would rather people be out and about in …

Shared: Topic 34: What is your favourite pop culture reference or easter egg in the game?

It always brings a smile to my face when I stumble across a NPC name or flavour text that points to a show or person I recognise from the real world. It also makes me wonder how many more there are that I’ve missed. For our latest challenge topic, we want to know: What is …

Mythics unlocked!

I was chatting to Nelly in guild about the balance of power questline and where I was up to which brought up how I still need to complete a mythic 15 for the purple bear. Admittedly, during that chat, I laid all the blame on our failure at the feet of our DPS.  We were …

and the balance of power continues

Forever…..and ever….it feels like the longest, longest quest line to want to complete. Seriously killing my patience, but with the release of BfA dates now I have to get it done. It is like a need in me. I have been doing a quest or to per day depending on what is required which I …

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 …

BfA!! Release date announced.

There it is!! 14th August! We have the date.  Most of the people in my guild seem like are planning on taking a couple of weeks leave, including me and Drew to just enjoy the game.  I am looking forward to it.  I was already working out how much leave I had.  The 14th is …

Toons, Toons everywhere

I finally moved my demonhunter over from the alliance.  I have completely forgotten how to play but it has been enjoyable trying to remember. So my guild has now snaffled my Mage, Druid, Paladin and Demonhunter. I managed to get quite a few achievements on her with the random dungeons and questing in the first …

Back on Aussie soil :D

For the last two months we were in Malaysia for work and we finally flew home on Good Friday/Easter Saturday.  This is why there has been few posts this week.  I am simply just exhausted from the time zone change, including DST change as well. So I apologise for that! It was a long flight …

Balance of Power…..ongoing

As part of the quest chain to get reputation with the Nightfallen, I was required to do a couple of heroics (Acway and CoS). So whilst we were waiting for Oui to come home and do some mythics, I convinced Ben and Drew to run me through the heroics. I figured we would smash them …

Shared: Topic 33 – Build your own achievement.

Been a long time since i have done one of these and am happy to be getting back into the Blogosphere. I have missed the community external to WoW and I am hoping to jump back in and see what is around. But let’s start with something nice and easy 😀 A topic I have …

Balance of Power

The pain in my bear butt. Introduction This quest is part of a comment-size guide for “Balance of Power.” questline (the last quest…finally). Quests are pretty much self-explanatory and all it takes is some time and good will to complete them. Completing this questline rewards Artifact Appearance (Appearance 3, Tint 1). Part 1 Image of …

Hidden frost artifact

I logged onto my mage tonight to do my missions and noticed the emote telling me my portals were wanting to send me to Frostfire ridge.  It is a random thing you just have to wait for and I was surprised I got it only about 3 days after having my portals active. This is …

Lost Mail

I have been randomly checking out Dalaran for the lost mail envelope. Not with any great amount of seriousness but just incase.  I actually found it last night! It is a little bit of fun, and on the plus side if you get the first achievement completed you get another lost mail item to send …

Class: I miss my mage.

I made a concerted effort this time round to change class/role and try something new.  What this has made me realise is how much I love and miss playing my mage. Not sure what that means moving forward into the new xpac, but I have enjoyed jumping on her and doing the odd heroic/mythic/LFR. I …

Raiding: Is it a wipe or a kill?

Woo!  Wooooo!!  You know what that means.  Epicness follows below. Tonight started rough, we wiped a couple of times due to just random assortment of bad luck, but we improved dramatically on phase 3 with some better set up for adds. It was good to see it coming together. We got him to 4% and …

Finally ending stories

For the longest time since returning to WoW and collecting the pillars of creation I had wondered how to get the last one. The elusive Eye of Amun’thul. I desperately wanted to close off the story and having so many quests in my log I honestly could not work which lead where, so whilst down …
