Last night I was pumped, full of energy and excitement to go play in the sky with genies. Big bad mean as grit genies…..did I mention they were genies?
We seemed to have a good raid comp, everyone was buffed to the teeth, and everyone had watched the video on Tankspot (this only known because of the amount of people who find Alienia a tad annoying) and the guild leader had a strategy.
What was causing the wipe? Me and my hunter buddy…..
About 15 times.
It never ends…..
I am an individual who doesn’t like change, at all. All this new Cataclysm stuff has me feeling uncomfortable, almost irritated at times trying to adjust. The last thing that always irks me once I reach level cap is my UI, but never fear, I have optimized my screen for healing, at least for now. It’s still a little uncomfortable, though it does what it suppose to for now. Continue reading
Well holy healers! I’m alive. My ability to constant blog wiped on work aggro. So let me update you on life:
A Rise in Views
So I noticed quite a rise on a Friday for blog views, more abnormal than usual. As any blogger would have done I investigated what could be the reason behind this. Zelmaru over at Murloc Parliament linked me under “Guildies Who Blog”. Why in world would I be under under that classification? Let me tell you……
Eff the Ineffable
Because I’m a friendly socialite I saw the invitation to roll on a server with some bloggers that I keep up on almost everyday. So far I have a level 7 warrior named Cambot (MST3K Reference…..Nerds) that hasnt done much other than inflate the number of critters killed. I have met some interesting people in there, and everyone is very nice and has an opinion on everything. I definitely will make sure I visit when I can, I am the self-proclaimed cheerleader of guild.
So upon finding a fun place to interact with those whom I don’t get to play with everyday I have had some new sparked interest in maybe pushing some morale in Revenged. Our raiding progression hasn’t been the best of days this expansion (1/12), so I’m searching out fun things for us to do as a way of building confidence in each other…and have fun. Gnome races, scavenger hunts, fishing tourneys, anything as a way of promoting guild entertainment. If anyone has any ideas I’d greatly appreciate them.
In all the commotion
I have been able to get Coagulater’s Tailoring up to 520, and his Alchemy is at 525 so I’m pretty happy. On a trading contract with Gurhulk for his cloth so he doesnt use it for bandages. Grrrrrr First Aid!!!
That is all for now! I’ll try to whip some posts up in-case work aggro succumbs me once more and I don’t have time to write full posts.
Good Luck in Azeroth!
Oh the things I can craft as a tailor!
With the simplest of materials I can make nice shirts for my friends, with rarities from around Azeroth I can sew and stitch epic wares for the masses. I’m a master of a thread and needle that employs all his knowledge of being seamstress into producing fine wares from fine raw materials.
What could ever make me want to cry about such a glorious profession so much? The Black Embersilk Gown….
“But why would Coagulater cry over such a puny item that isn’t even of epic quality?” you ask. Well folks, I’m about to tell you why…. Continue reading
This weeks Blog Azeroth Shared Topic is: Were 5 levels enough?
Want it short and sweet?
The answer is yes, it was more than enough.
With the amount of content Blizzard threw at us in this expansion it was just a welcomed addition. The entire old world became new, except for a few ratty places.
A new secondary profession, all new quests in almost every zone, remapping the old world for flying. For god sake’s, they rebuilt the game basically. Boosting our level cap to 85 gave us time to level up and then experience the content at end game which there is plenty of for the casual person.
I dont have paragraphs on this cause I’m still discovering content, so bring more on! 😀
That’s my take..
Good Luck in Azeroth!
Three day weekends really throw me off, just saying.
I didn’t really do much in-game this weekend. Mostly farmed herbs and leveled Alchemy on Coagulater. This proffesion stuff isn’t a joke in Cataclysm, but the nerf is coming….and it is needed.
The slicing of herbs needed to make flasks is much called for. The allure of Wrath consumables when matched up to the materials to make them in comparison to Cata consumables and their materials is a no-brainer right now.
The time it takes to farm enough herbs for 2-4 hours of raiding is quite a bit much right now, and to those who don’t farm and get their flasks and pots from the AH are feeling the time=money correlation as herbalists and alchemists raise the price of Cata herbs and flasks respectively to points of being 250g per flask. Kinda ridiculous…
On top of the added cost and materials needed, Blizz stealthed in and took away the 2 Flasks per creation. I also took note that in all the leveling I did this weekend there wasn’t one time I created more than 1 flask. I remember when I’d create an extra 2-4 almost every other time, what gives Blizz?
It’s almost like they are attempting to constrict the alchemist so not everyone is running around with +300 flasks attached to them….but if they wanted that, than why even have them in game?
One good point I did notice is that when creating Cata flasks I have the chance to learn Wrath stuff as if it is acting like “Northrend Alchemy Research” which good I guess from a ‘I want to know all the recipes’ standpoint.
There’s my alchemy grumble…..what’s yours?
Dear Leap of Faith,
The time we are spending together has become some of my favorite times in WoW. I can’t count the number uses I have found for you, nor do I hope I ever stop finding reasons to hit your keybind. The few seconds of enjoyment you provide at the sametime as saving a loved one (or not so loved) are worth every second.
Thou I would love to sit here and praise you for all the shine and glory you have brought to the priest community, I can’t get over the few bad habits you carry that make priests, at times, look foolish. We are a prideful group and will not take verbal, mental or emotional abuse without trying to ‘smite’ it first.
My first issue with you is pathing, mainly your lack of navigating a target back to me when there is a break in the floor between me and them, at times. The inconsistency has made you unreliable and it can be annoying at times when a comrade is stuck somewhere and they wish not to pay a repair bill. Sure, you are young, and still developing muscles. The least you could do is try, if you pull a party member half-way only to have him plummet to his death, than so be it, at least you tried.
My other qualm with your is your decision to blow your cooldown if above stated action happens. Seriously, you tried even try to left that 200 lb orc out of the crevice, shape up and be ready sooner. I wouldn’t care if you just shortened your cool down after a failed save attempt, it just upset me that you make me wait so long after you lazily decided that my buddy Gurhulk isn’t worth the time, nor the effort. (I know he’s fat, but don’t blame him, his son makes him eat a lot of doughnuts) If you could just muscle up and get back into the game quicker it would make me happy, at best be ready right after a failed attempt.
This letter isn’t meant to hurt your feelings, nor is it meant to slice you from my toolbox. It is just a request, like an owner trying to teach his dog tricks. Just fix these few problems for me and I’ll give you treats and affection.
