Razorscale and the Big Baby

Posted in General on May 28, 2009 by rocklawthepally

So we ran 2 10-man groups into Ulduar the other night (being a tad shy for a full 25 – if you sign up, please be decent enough to show up) and I got to participate in my first kills of Razorscale and XT-002 Deconstrucor.

Pretty easy fights, once you get the hang of them. Next trick will be dealing with the arms of Kolgarn :)

Authenticator FTW!

Posted in General on May 24, 2009 by rocklawthepally

I finally lucked into finding the Blizzard Authenticator for Canada in stock. Immediately snapped one up. Now to see how long it takes to get here :)

Yay for account security. Never been hacked and now I have even more strength on my account.

The Death Knight Cometh

Working on the Death Knight lately.  Dinged 64 last night and should be hitting Northrend by the end of the weekend, hopefully.  Skipping all the superfluous crap and achievements, not worrying about rested or anything else of that sort.  I’m just ploughing through, stopping only to keep my mining in line.

It looks as though our leadership has decided that we’re more or less done with Naxx.  Many folks still need stuff from that instance, but we’re sharding a lot more stuff lately and if we all need only a few pieces, then it’s time to move on.  I’m all for the move to Ulduar.  Bring on the wipefest.  I miss progression raiding.  Those nights in SSC and The Eye, having our asses handed to us on a regular basis.  I’ll have to stock up on frost lotus for flasks, but since I farmed the turtle mount, I have all the salmon in the world.

Also considering taking the warlock back to Outland to farm gold by finishing up all the quests in Nagrand, Blade’s Edge, Netherstorm and Shadowmoon Valley.  That would net a ton of coin and not take all that long.

Suffice to say, I’m still really busy in-game.  Lots to do.

The Drama Llama

Finally got to exalted with all of the 5 main Lich King factions over the weekend. Kirin Tor was the final one and I got there on cooking and fishing dailies alone. No tabard rep at all :)

On a sad note, our GL has left the game for good, it seems. RL issues have become a limiting factor for her and she ultimately made the decision to set the game aside. I wish her the very best.

We also lost our Raid Leader, who has gone on to form her own guild. As a result of this instability, I’ve taken all of my alts out of the guild, leaving only the pally in there. My alts will remain unguilded for the time being.

Powerleveled mining and blacksmithing to 300 or so on my death knight and am leveling her up through Hellfire Peninsula. Still getting used to the playstyle. Some times it seems stuff dies very quickly and at other times, it seems to take a while. Not sure how I feel about it all. Blood spec atm.

7500 Turtles!

After approximately 7500 catches, I finally have the turtle mount :) That is all.

The Noble Patron Loot Whore

Posted in General with tags , , , , , on May 5, 2009 by rocklawthepally

Well, that’s 2 more World Events down. The Noblegarden one wasn’t too bad, except for all the egg camping that was going down on the first few days. That was a bit of a pain in rear.

Children’s week also was not too bad, except for the PvP. Not ever having done any of the battlegrounds for real, I was completely clueless as to what I was supposed to do. The hardest one had to be Eye of the Storm, and apparently I’m a noob because I capped the flag while we did not hold the middle. Too bad, hard-core PvPers, at least I stuck around to finish the thing off. Next most difficult would have to be the Arathi Basin achievement – that one took several tries. Warsong Gulch was pretty simple and Alterac Valley was a breeze. I’m just happy to have the whole thing done.

On to more important matters.  I’m pretty close to broke because I did just enough Argent dailies to grab myself a Claymore of the Prophet and then had to gem and enchant all my ret gear.  I had forgotten just how much fun ret can be.  Stuff dies so damn fast, it’s ridiculous.  I’ve run a couple of instances as ret now and I’m having a blast.  Also on the loot whore front, I scored big time in Naxx 25 the other night, picking up my T7.5 helm and the caster sword from Kel’Thuzad.  Not content with the +50 spellpower enchant for the best in slot weapon I will be carrying for a long while to come, I blew a wad on getting the +63 version.
