Here Kitty, Kitty, Kitty

On Sunday, while playing Ette (warlock), I ran out of health potions. “No, problem,” I thought to myself, “I’ll just log on Obliette and send over some more.”

Only logging onto Obliette (NE Druid) reminded me that her mailbox was full(and expiring) and her bank was full and she was capped at 150 Alchemy until she could raise her level to 20. So then part of Sunday was spent getting Obliette up to 20.

Warlock, the anti-paladin

On horde-side, my Paladin Illyah (29 Protection) does Alchemy and Enchanting. She started out doing Alchemy and Herbalism but I found that when running with a guild group.. the constant “must stop to pick the pretty flowers” got really annoying. So I decided I’d have an alt do the Herbalism and have Illyah do enchanting instead. A completely rational decision.. except that I first made another paladin as an alt. The benefit of the Paladin is that I know how to play them.. and they solo well. The drawback is that someday I hope to hit 70.. and having two horde-side paladins at 70 is kinda boring. So I decided to make a new flower-picker alt.

“Need more mana…”

So let’s say.. you’re fighting a Hellboar.. and you neglected to notice that your weapon skill is abysmal. So the fight is taking WAY longer than it should. You’ve got Seal of Wisdom up on yourself.. and Judgement of Wisdom up on the Hellboar… You’ve already bubble/bandaged and your mana potion is on cooldown (you quaffed a mana potion a little bit ago in order to bubble).

What do you do?

Are there any other things that you can do during combat that don’t share a cooldown with the mana potions? What are they and where do they come from?

*Whiff*

Weirdly unproductive in WoW yesterday. I logged on intending to scan the AH, make some money, and then go questing near Honor Hold. The scan went well but when I went to “make some money” I couldn’t find anything on AH worth buying. After a bit I gave up and transported to Honor Hold to do some questing.

Plodding towards 70

I turned in my quest in Stormwind (for the pally quest and from UBRS) and then went to Wintersprings. While fighting my way into the transporter (blue transporter in cave that transports you to the top of the mountain for quest turn ins) I ran into a 70 Druid going the same direction. He agreed to let me group with him (good thing too.. I was planning to just die alot.. this made it much easier). I got to play healer for him as he tore up the blue dragon thingies in the cave. The fight with the last 60 Elite dragon was a bit dicey. We did end up getting him.. but it was close. Transported to the top of the mountain, turned in two quests and then she batted me away.. or at least further up the mountain. The game then teleported me to the Plaguelands and dropped me in the lake (I read about people dying when the teleport ended because the lake hadn’t rendered yet and they just went splat on the dry lakebed. That made me laugh. I’m aweful).

A Peninsula should have fish.. right?

Gold flows like water in the outlands.. or so I’ve been told…

Got to thinking.. is there any fishing in Hellfire Peninsula? I don’t think I’ve seen any water yet. Hmmm.

Not that Tatia’s going to fish it.. she’s still at 22/75 fishing. Someday I’ll work on that.

Armory Upgrade

I was only able to get on for a little bit last night (only long enough to post some auctions and fly to Stormwind) then I got disconnected and couldn’t log back in (Authentication Errors). After a while I gave up.

This morning I find out that they upgraded the Armory.. and boy howdy, is it [...]

Thought exercises on the topic of pulling mobs and getting them to hate me(pally tank). :)
For the sake of argument I’ll keep it at 5 mobs. (keep in mind I’m a noob pally tank… I’m making this up , thinking it though and it makes sense to me. Comments/criticisms appreciated.)
