I have been running that silly horseman event every day and doing the trick or treat thing as often as possible to get my “hallowed helm” it was the last thing I needed for my meta achievement for the hallowed events.
I am now only two yearly events off getting my drake…here’s hoping they leave it in for another year.
I have a few bits under the childrens’ week and some under winter veil to get completed. Mainly all the PVP ones…which I hate…I really dislike that there are PVP requirments for the meta achievements. I hate PVP, well no i don’t hate it…I suck more than you can imagine at pvp. You know those matches where you head in and there is always one person you kill 800 times….it’s probably me I do them for fun and just to have a play – but to have to actually suceed in there is something I am not good at…..
I noticed the pilgrims bounty stuff is on next week, I missed out on it last year so will complete as many of them as I can…free pet for that as well Can’t complain !!
Have also discovered the awesomeness which is champion seals…you get them now when you open the money bags from the exalted argent tournie quests, so that is bringing me much closer to obtainign all the things I need to obtain…I just have to keep battling at it….I will probably be doing them well into cataclysm as well….Hopefully it won’t be too much longer before I get exalted with the sunreavers and start doing those quests as well which will bump up my stash…Sucks to change factions coz you lose all the rep with them CRY!!
Have been a little slack lately with the updates I know!!
I spent all weekend watching Blizzcon and was a little disappointed to be honest. We didn’t really get any new information and very little about Cataclysm…would have been nice for those of us not in the Beta to have some information about the things currently happening (in my personal opinion – others will no doubt disagree).
The costume comp must have been rigged, the 5 crappy outfits made it finals…no offence if you were one of them..but compared to the Twin Valks (the second ones), the first spirit healer, professor putricide and rotface, the group of three playing wisp, spirit healer and dead pally and the three as Arthas and his chronies, the chick in all white for spacecraft, the engineer from spacecraft, the moonkin…..just some relaly creative ones this year which didn’t seem to even get a mention….oh well….
That isn’t to say we didn’t get a lot of information or interesting thinsg from Blizzcon, it was awesome….I didn’t see the closing ceremony as the live feed shat itself and would not play.
The feed this year was awful!! We spent more time trying to get the damn thing to play than actually watching it. Many complaints on twitter about it as well.
I did learn some valuable things about some of my classes, ie ways they intended for things to be used/played..so that has helped in the last few days.
Now onto decision making for the guild and deciding what we are doing, where we are going etc then to start getting it happening
What did others think?
Soft crit cap – 33.33%
hit rating – approx 420 something currently, will play with it a little bit and see how low I can go.
Haste – - water elemental scales well with haste
mastery after that.
Change out spirit gems to something else.
Just my notes about Pally stats and reforging…feel free to ignore
Reforge so that you meet hit cap and expertise soft cap (should not be needed in proper gear, perhaps you even reforge away from those stats). Then check if you are at the block cap (102,4 % summed parry+block+dodge, we lost miss since no defense anymore). If not reforge parry into mastery. If yes, reforge parry into dodge as long as it keeps you over the cap.
Stack parry rating up to 21.21% and dodge rating up to 21.6% (931 rating for both stats). Dodge and parry are our most effective ratings up to this point.
2) Reforge excess parry and dodge into mastery rating until you reach 102.4% combined avoidance and mitigation.
I was speechless earlier today..completely….I decided to jump on my level 33 priest this afternoon and do a couple of runs with the LFG thing…
you know it is going to get bad right about now right?
I am in there, trying to facemelt things, running dry with mana and thinking I was having an alright time, until some dickhead in the party – says “What’s with the priest they just leeching xp?” to which I said nothing…I was WTF-ing at my monitor.
He then goes on to say – “priest doing 0 DPS”
I then say :
“I didn’t realise I was meant to be a fucking expert at this level”
his response was “you’re doing zero dps”
“I hate selfish people like this priest!”
and then thsy started spamming recount on me and I was doing like 78 dps…so according to that i was doing 78 more points of DPS than was quoted by dickwad…
But what annoys me is wtf is dps at lvl 33? It was SM library FFS…..did you want me doing 10k dps already? I have like 5 spells to use, 3 of which don’t get any benefit in low level places where mobs are dying before 2 ticks have gotten off…..
It has really annoyed me!!
This is a backdated post
I forgot to mention I finally got my Zandalar rep to exalted! I really would like ot farm ZG for the mounts, but I have no one who wants ot help me and I can’t do it alone sadly…
OK, so patch night sucked fo rme, I only finally managed to get online last night.
I had to reinstall my game twice and download a whole bunch of crud to effect that as well. For some reason it did not like me at all.
So after finally getting into the game and playing with my toons and ooohing and ahhing over all the changes I was amused by trade chat and all the arguments going on about gear, gems, dps etc.
I was amazed at how many people are up in arms over some changes and complaining about their DPS etc. Seriously….wtf are you complaining about? We are like 2 months away from a fucking huge, MAJOR, MASSIIVEEEEE, expansion…why are you even worried about dps or anything at this point.
It has been stated so many times that everything is tuned for when you are level 85….and since no one in the worlds is at level 85, except for the games developers – Shut the fuck up!!! HONESTLY!!
Just chill out, play with your new spells and learn to play your class all over again, then, once you have hit level 85 start complaining. Until then just relax and enjoy the game. Wrath is over….The lich king’s time has passed. Stop living in the past man!!!
Anyway that is my little rant
So sad I didn’t get to log in this morning briefly before I had to go to work and I will be home late tonight so won’t get online until probably 9-10pm :!
So many things I am looking forward to in this patch
Mainly having to regem all my gear for just int, get rid of all those extra stats and crap – I like I have to investigate crit/haste before I go too nuts but YAY no more SP!!!
All the new Guild interface options of professions etc will be awesome, can’t wait to have a fiddle with all that :
The normal UI looks heaps better as well, loving the spell book.
and last but not least:
POLYMORPH MONKEY!!!!!!! OH HELL YES!!! Shame it is a glyph – am actually annoyed I won’t be able to have both penguin and monkey – or maybe I can? No idea…will find out tonight when I go and have a squizz
I should really post about this to keep my faith in humanity alive.
Not that the people I am writing about are likely to read this post, however I was questing on my mage yesterday, doing my dailies in Jotenheim and noticed the Valk in the centre of that ring had quests for me. I was under the impression I had completed them, but with not a moment to lose and 100g in the making, I decided to spam general for some help.
I asked a couple of times for some help and a DK by the name of Phamine whispered me. He offered his assistance and came past to help me out. The two of us had a little trouble with the kills but did manage to do the first one. It was a very close call and I do remember a death on the first Champion.
I asked in General again for some help and a lovely priest called Dionysis whispered me, advising they had just come back to the game after 8 months off and would like to just heal and dps some stuff to get back into the hang of it. So grabbed them as well.
We smashed through the rest of the quests and the DK advised he had some group quests as well. So we offered to help with those. Off to various parts of Icecrown we went – forgetting about phasing etc but we did the quests we got all his done as well.
I then had to kill Bloodbane – whilst the DK went off to hand in his quests and a shammy – I am sorry I can’t remember his name it was a very odd one, was lovely, came and helped we killed and all went well. My DK friend came back just as we killed Bloodbane and he had just picked up the quest, so we killed him again.
My new friend Phamine and I were chatting for a little while about the game etc and added each other to friends lists. It was just a really nice experience to quest with people who were not getting aggro at deaths or phasing etc. We worked together and we got things done. There was no swearing, name calling, or horrid chat Was such a nice experience, I thought I would put it out there, to just remember that some people enjoy the game not for the prize loot at the end, but just to run with new people and make friends. It was a very enjoyable in game experience
I really wanted to write on this topic as I have a few things that I enjoy in the game according to this original post :
I’ve written a post on how some small and unexpected things in WoW can delight you and be something you will remember forever. not the big questlines and NPCs blizzard makes sure nobody will miss or every guide makes sure to mention, but the more hidden places or special characters in the game that still offer something unique or entertaining to those that can find them. I would absolutely love to read about more such secret places or NPCs in wow, I have a feeling that there’s quite a few I’ve missed! this could be a very interesting topic more bloggers might enjoy(?)
For reference, my latest topic: http://raging-monkeys.blogspot.com/2010 … arans.html
i wouldn’t want to restrict the topic to NPCs only, but ask generally: what wow secrets have you discovered on your long journey through the world of warcraft? what unexpected, surprising or delightfully ‘pointless’ things have you chanced upon that add something special to the game for you?
A post or so later though it changed slightly to:
I think it’s important that the topic sets itself apart from general “places i like”-type of posts – but if it’s something like a ‘secret spot’ thats hard to get to in some way or really unknown because its located at the end of the world or something, then I sure think it fits.
So I am not entirely sure any of mine fit into the second category all that well, but in the spirit of the post in total, I have taken some images of the NPC’s and places that I really enjoy in the game.
I have to be honest, most are in BC and I had real trouble thinking of many in Northrend, maybe I just haven’t noticed them this time round…not sure, however due to the image intensity I have added it behind a cut for you Enjoy.
