Why bother…

I hate starting to read a series of books when I know there’s already 3+ books out there. I don’t want to become committed to something that might actually suck after the second book. Will Wow be the same way?

If you only had toons below level 30.. or (God forbid) you had just picked [...]

Druidic Wanderings

I played my baby druid the other day. She hit 26. Later the following conversation happened in Ventrillo:

Me: Yesterday I played my baby druid alt and I really enjoyed it.
Amel (Druid #1): Yeah, druids are very cool.
Ursidae (Druid #2): We can fill any role.
Amel: You’re a Jack-of-all-Trades. Stealth, DPS, Tank. We’re very versatile.
Mugruith [...]

A little of this, a smidge of that…

And like that *snap* Tatia’s an alchemist. I found Alchemy easier to level than Herbalism. Then again.. when Tatia leveled herbalism ( in October: Herbalism 375) I socked most of those flowers away in my guild-of-one bank tab. So I had most of the mats already on hand. In all I think [...]

Venting: “You people make my ass twitch”

Crush your headLast week I started finding a couple of guildies (ok, one guildie) -really- annoying. I was in Karazhan standing behind their toon.. with my fingers poised over their toon on my screen muttering “I crush your head!! Crush crush crush”. I think I was PMSing.. but I was honestly to the point of screaming and slamming my keyboard. After Kara I moved myself to an empty Vent room to finish off my after-Kara work (repairs/replenish reagents/food/etc). Someone asked fiancee why I was in a vent room by myself.. and Fiancee asked me and I told him that I was finding everyone very annoying so went off to be by myself. In retrospect I find it very weird that I didn’t just log off of vent.

Then, late Friday night Ventrillo mysteriously died. I didn’t worry about it much, I was working on dailies at the time and didn’t really need to chat with guildies.

Have the balls…

Pug with BallMagister’s Terrace is a massive load of owww. I’ve been through regular.. and really heroic isn’t -that- much harder.. but it is harder. On the day it was released Tatia healed fiancee’s tank through it. Since then I’ve healed through Heroic MgT about twice. It’s a fairly painful instance. If your group is even slightly not on the ball you’ll wipe.. alot.

We ran into that on Sunday. We wanted the fantastic lootz.. and there weren’t enough guildies on.. so we pugged two of our DPSers in. Then we proceeded to fail. We didn’t even make it to the first boss.
