Gryphonheart, over at The Lion Guard, has a hilarious post up on how to make Heroic Deadmines more heroic.
Other weeks, you’re the statue.
TRI logged in last night, ready to pwn some nubs in the Coliseum and face down some Twin Valkyr.
Everyone groups up, we take out Northrend Beasts… and anyone in the raid living in Washington or Oregon crashes. And can’t get back online. 7 people down, including three healers and two raid officers.
Wait 20 minutes? Still no dice.
In a raid that only works 2 nights a week, for a total of 7 hours, getting your night ruined by a login server crash is a major setback. We won’t see the new boss in ToC this week – and not for anything we can have done about it.
So! In an attempt to cheer myself up about it, I’m accepting suggestions for tonight’s server-wide RP event, the 6th (ish) Annual Rose Ball!
Should I bring Aely? Or Annie Mae? And what should she wear?
In light of the upcoming changes to the Old World, I’m setting out to finish up the Wallpaper project. You can see what I’ve done so far here.
If anyone has suggestions of particularly picturesque places for me to use, please let me know. I’d like this to be a good tour of all the places that make Kalimdor, Eastern Kingdoms, Outland, and Northrend particularly beautiful, so I’m happy to head out to any spot on any continent!
Leave your suggestions or places you’d like to see in the comments, and I’ll post again when I upload another batch!
So I had some free time last night after all the crazy, and I decided to put a little time in with Anaje, who’s sat mostly neglected while I’ve been busy busting it to get Aely the remaining Argent Crusade items that she wants. I logged her in, blew up some pirates in Rachet, and then the achievements started rolling.
- Ragefire Chasm – hooray! (yeah, I got blasted through by the Supercow himself, but it was fun, and I got the quests out of my log!)
- Level 20 – double hooray! Little Moo is growing up!
- Giddy up! – TRIPLE HOORAY! Anaje has named her Kodo “Rusty”, and he’s awesome. Also, he’s kind of lumbery, and not very smart. But he’s a good Kodo. And he likes pumpkins.
- 100 quests! – Less hooray but still fun. I eventually want Anaje to go for Loremaster, and I’m trying to do as much of it NOW as she’s leveling as I will want to not have to go back and do as many later on. Since she’s Tauraje, I’m starting with Kalimdor, and all 100 of those quests are in Kalimdor. I’ve done 4 in Eastern Kingdoms, for RFC/WC, and will still probably do the Nesingwary quests in Stranglethorn, but I’m going to put as much focus as possible on Kalimdor for now.
With the upcoming “stuff”, combined with her RP as a Tauraje Storyteller, I think it makes sense that she’d be my Loremaster character. That, and she’s a lot of fun to play, even if she doesn’t have the uber-leveling Heirloom shoulders and chestpiece that my Alliance lowbies do.
And hey – if I’m going for Loremaster, I want to do MORE quests, not fewer!
Of course, the really important question now, is what kind of weapons she should be using… Angoleth will NOT use guns. Just flat won’t. Anaje, however, hasn’t really expressed much preference, and as she started out with a gun, that’s what she’s stuck with so far. I’ll have to see how she feels about a crossbow though, somehow I think that would suit her quite well.
It didn’t take long to get from Thunder Bluff to the Echo Isles – Ankona took advantage of a wyvern so she could think and plan before getting to her destination. She had information to confirm with the spirits – …
An old story, reposted here as I’m shaking the mothballs off Ankona and needed an easy way to show people a little bit about the (batshit) things she gets up to. Enjoy, and don’t be too creeped out!
It really …
So I haven’t finished the intro quests yet (the server queues from the reduced server capacity due to the DDOS attacks meant I only got about an hour to play yesterday), but I’m finding that Draenor is pretty cool so …
The morning of the all hands summon to the Blasted Lands, Aely went for a walk. The late fall air was clear and cool, and leaves crunched under their feet in the less-traveled parts of the streets. She and Roger …
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 …
Squire Benjamin William Sullivan stood in the middle of Light’s Hope Chapel in his underpants.
Actually, it was white linen pants and a shift, but the effect was approximately the same. The little chapel was warm, on the edge of …
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 …
