Dear Coilskar Naga:

Do you really have such a love for your fish oil that you have to keep it locked up in chests, instead of, say money and Cipher of Damnation fragments?

WoW Gold and Spam! – http://forums.worldofwarcraft.com/thread.html?topicId=4311118588&sid=1

Reminds me of back when I used to spam a macro back at the goldspam whispers. Though it was definitely more Monty Python and less Dr. Seuss.

Post Deleted. Which is entirely too bad.

And now up again elsewhere – original post by Malbo:

So last night, Annalira and friends ventured yet again into the realm of the Forest Trolls in search of purpl itamz and good times. Nalorakk down, and we beat the timer (first time for that! yay!) – paladin and hunter drops. Smacked Akil’zon around too, for the shaman healing hat – which went to the paladin as well. No real love lost, as Annorah has the engineering goggles, which should last her until at least BT/Hyjal. And then, as has been the case for the last several weeks, Halazzi beat us into the ground.


I am of the opinion that Annalira maxed out her gear -> healing ratio last night. Because I know it’s not the tanks. Both are in T5 bits and tanking through SSC, and both are intelligent and situationally aware, and I was spamming max rank GHeals on my assigned tank and just could not keep up with the damage. I was using mana oil, a flask of healing power, and golden fishsticks, chugging mana pots like a rehab relapse, and STILL I watched as my heals landed and never managed to get back to anywhere near full. And those cleaves HURT.

I think this can only mean one thing. Less QQ, more pewpew.
I don’t like having two level 70’s that are heal specced anyway, and Anna is arguably more useful as shadow anyway. Her gear is certainly comparable to her healing gear (full frozen shadoweave and Karazhan drops) Which means that my Z’A group will need another healer – probably difficult/unlikely at this point. But having a mana battery really pads the healing, and she’s a walking DOT factory, plus being able to effectively CC most humanoid mobs. And while we can argue all day about the level of sophistication that Forest Trolls have, Blizzard still classes them as humanoid.

Of course, none of this desire to go back shadow is related to my wanting to have a troll pet to play with or anything… not me! well, ok maybe just a little… please? That one over there – the one that shoots fire?

So, I find it really interesting that so many wowbloggers are talking about guilds right now. Maybe it’s because of the post-holidays slog, when people get back to the raid grind and dig back into the game. Maybe it’s the winter doldrums. Maybe the dramallama is just making his rounds, nibbling on everyone’s tulips and generally making a mess of things. Either way – BigBearButt and World of Matticus have both been talking about guild structure and raiding woes. The dramallama hit my guild this weekend, unfortunately, and the ramifications of his visit have not yet been shaken out. I imagine if there are big changes, I’ll be mentioning them here, but for now it’s just stressful to be around my mains. Which is sad, because Angoleth is really pushing close to 68, and leveling Tim is getting to be more and more important.

feed pet Who is Tim, you ask?

Well, that’s something of a story. An has never been one of those hunters that gives up on pets easily – but at the same time, she doesn’t still have a moonstalker either. After much tribulation she settled down with a wolf and a bat… and then eventually Sian’Rotam. Easily the most obnoxious, pain in the arse tame I’ve ever attempted, particularly since it was back before that quest became available to Alliance, so I had to get a Tauren buddy to do it with me. I think we finally got him on the 5th try, and both died on all attempts. Either way, Arsaelan had become her pet of choice. Which is odd, since I tend to avoid cat pets, being that the “female night elf hunter with big white kitty” is kind of a huge stereotype.

When An hit 66, I decided that it was time to do a big pet-skill-roundup. tamebeast

At that level she could tame creatures that had all the pet skills I usually keep around – dash, dive, claw, bite, etc. Into the stables goes Arsaelan, and out she goes to Terokkar to grab a scorpid – easy enough. Then to Nagrand to catch a birdy – also no problem. Then to Blade’s Edge and snag Rema the Den Mother. While I’m running back up to Toshley’s, I see these ravager guys, and notice that they have gore. Now, I’ve kind of wanted a boar pet for awhile, but I *HATE* ravagers. But, well, it’s not such a bad idea to grab more pet skills, right? So I fly back to Sylvanaar, drop off Rema at the Stable Master, and head back out to Gnomeville to grab a Rip-Blade Ravager.

Of course, my pet skill taming luck has, by this time, run out. Those first two pets? Taught me new skills within 3 kills of trying to learn. Ravager thing? Not so much.

So here I am, sending this bright blue and orange ravager after whatever I can find, and praying that maybe THIS time it’ll teach me the gore skill. This goes on for about 5 minutes, while my husband is sitting next to me listening to me plead with the Ravager to teach me Gore so I can just let it go on its merry way. So he makes a suggestion. At which point, the *entire* situation changes. What did he say?

“You should call him Tim”

…great. So now it has a name. I hate ravagers – what are you doing naming my… hehehe…. Tim, the Ravager…

There are some who call him… Tim…

*sigh* So now I have a ravager pet. He amuses me greatly. Tim also changes color, which also amuses me greatly. When he’s blue, he matches An’s hair. He’s also only level 65 yet, so I’ve been taking him out to murdervate clefthoof in Nagrand in the evenings, since farming + pet training = two rogues with one chain heal. So if you’re out on Feathermoon server, stop by and say hi. I promise Tim won’t actually do any damage to your shoes – he just likes to chew on the laces…

What a long strange trip it’s been. I’ll be the first to admit that, at the beginning, I wasn’t sure Pandaria was going to be for me. I’ve made clear my dislike of daily quests, and that seemed to be …

So I’m not really in a position where I should be creating alts. This, of course, does nothing to deter me from making alts when the inspiration strikes. I’ve been really enjoying my Alliance hunter, and she’s my raiding main …
