The Cleaning Power of Ruts

Stuck in a rutI think I’m in a rut. It’s not a bad rut.. but it’s kind of a rut.

My evenings are as follows:
– Log into Pally and use Alchemy to make an epic gem (currently making dreadstones). Send stone to banker toon.
– Log into banker toon. Check to see if last gem sold (usually they do), check to see if prices are meh ok (160-190g) if so, list a gem to sell. Scan AH and check for any deals.
– Log into Warlock. Check on the daily heroic. Get in LFG for a 25.
– Get into a pug-25 or get bored, make dinner, catch up on blogs for a while, wander off and fold laundry.

The good news is that I’m almost all caught up with laundry. …

Beige.. I think I’ll paint the ceiling beige

wow_warlock_tier_7_by_rhino848
I remember the first time I noticed a warlock.

I was wandering around in Ironforge as a level forty-something Draenei Paladin. While running from the auction house to the mailbox I saw something out of the corner of my eye. I stopped short and even exclaimed out loud. My fiancée, who was sitting behind me, turned around and asked me what was wrong.

Me: Did you see that?
Him: See what?
Me: That person in the red, and orange {pointing at the screen} had wings. That was so cool.
Him: Oh, that’s a warlock.

I was fixated. I was in love. I think I followed that warlock all around Ironforge until they took a flight path. I kept hoping I’d see those wings again.

Eventually, after my Paladin hit 70 and healing made my eyes bleed and fall out of my head, I decided I needed to level an alt.. and I thought back to those wings.

Summer can suck it

Wintergrasp Open Battleground

From official forums via MMO-Champion:

Players that queue for the Wintergrasp battle and are selected to join will be placed into raid groups upon entering the zone. These raid groups will function similarly to the battleground raid groups with a few exceptions. Players can leave it at any time, the leader can issue invites, etc. The only restriction is that if a player leaves Wintergrasp while the battle is active, they will be removed from the raid (to make room for the player that will take their place).

Whinging about pugs

bart-simpson-eat-my-shortsI figure any VoA pug, especially a 25-man pug has ~3 wipes before it’ll go through. My warlock is off-and-on attempting to get the PVP head piece which would -still- be an upgrade (even though she does now have a purple head piece). So occasionally, when I notice Wintergrasp is about to start I will pop in.

Afterwards I’ll stick around if I’m not saved and try to get into a VoA. Well after spending 2.5 seconds thinking about it, it occurred to me that my warlock has already gotten the two tier pieces she wants off of Emalon.. and really, I should be running VoA on Tatia, my Pally. So after I got into the raid and the raid leader was calling for healers, I volunteered to switch over and heal on my Pally.

Rainbows and Kittens

Over the weekend we killed Auriayanaysaysaefwhateverthefuckhernameis, the crazy cat lady. I suppose I’ll do a “guild first” post tomorrow (I forgot the screenshot at home). Anyway, she dropped these Mantle of the Preserver. I rolled. One of the two priests in the group rolled. The priest beat me. Then decided to pass because “it would break up my set bonus”. The loot-master awarded the shoulders. And then I looked at them. I mean really looked at them.

“GC Promised Me A Pony” and other QQ

Pallies: “Don’t nerf me bro.”
GC: “Here, have a pony”
Pallies: “GC Promised me a pony”
See pony (and other “cool stuff coming in 3.2″.) here: http://bit.ly/17wwIP

If I were a betting woman I’d say 3.2 will appear maybe a week before Blizzcon.
