Old world instances

I caught myself wondering why I would run old-world instances. The loot is nice.. but I can’t imagine running a level 60 instance over and over again for a particular drop.. especially when I’ve been assured that 1 day in the outlands will replace all my old-world items.

So far I’ve run the old-world instances for [...]

Lowbies go “squish”

BRD “Jailbreak” was fun. We cleared out the appropriate hallways and then turned in the preliminary quests. Then you -slowly- follow Marshal what’s-his-name around while he gather’s his armor, frees his friends and has you help him exact revenge on his enemies.

The group was Tatia (57 Pally), Sibiy (66 Hunter), Zinnea (60 Priest) and Chulong (68 Rogue). While clearing before the turn in Sibiy declared that he was bored and set about aggroing additional groups of mobs. YEAH! Tatia actually got to tank a bit. At one point I looked around and realized she’d just killed 8 Bloodhounds (they were arranged in a lovely half circle around her).

Zappity Doo Dah… got me a boomerang…

Ok, so it turns out Blazerunner is a pushover when you zap him regularly (or have an uber-spiff healer watching your back).

It looks like if he has his big blue-ish “you can’t hit me” aura up, he can knock you back. When he does his knock back he gets right in your face. This make it really really hard to see if his aura is up. Add to that, if he knocks you back and the knock back puts you up on a rock in the back of the cave, then he will start evading. If he evades for too long (like 3 or more seconds) he heals himself. All the while he’s whaling on you and knocking you back into the cave wall.

Your point?

I’m horribly intrigued by fully developed big empty spaces.. like this cave in Starfall.. someday something might happen here.. until then.. it’s just big.. and empty. [...]

Some quests just make you laugh…

Last night I wandered off to Winterspring to work on a couple quests (and to get 56). I’m working on the “Are we there Yeti?” quest line. A goblin sends you out to get 10 yeti hides (only drop from Ice Thistle Yeti, ~40% drop rate) and then two pristine yeti horns (only drop [...]

Stuck on Blazerunner

Whose bright idea was it to force me to use some daft little wand in place of my shield? I mean really? And what kind of freaking reject of an elemental spends all his time blasting me with fireballs instead of hitting my ever-so-wonderful, endowed-with-shield-spikes shield? BAH!

Starting on Linken’s Boomerang

Enough with the instances already.

Tatia fluttered back to Un’Goro Crater. Immediately I was reminded that I wanted to finish Linken’s quest line to get his boomerang.

I found a fantastic walk-thru [...]

BRD take two.. in it for the loot

Dinged 55 while in BRD. Not so much experience there.. but tons of upgrades. I got a new shield, new legs, new cloak and new gloves. Tatia is looking downright sexy. Must add screenshot.

2.1, the new perspective

Settling into 2.1. Couldn’t get on until late last night so didn’t spend very much time with it.

I started the night in Darnassus and spent a while popping into and out of the game while fiddling with addons. Most everything is now working. The only big loss so far is MoveAnything! and KTM. Really hoping those come back soon.

Then I ran off to Exodar to respec. Happy new Tatia deep deeeep into the Protection tree.

Current spec: 0/45/0
