BA Shared Topic – Oaths

Shared Topic this week from Matty:

What vows would your character say, intend, or break, and to what allegiance? Would it be to class/race/specialization, deity, or ruler? This is quite a challenging Blog Azeroth topic, however, I know you are all up to it because you are amazing writers.

I found this one a hard one…many of my readers would know, I am not a very good writer, in fact I would go so far as to say I suck!!  Thinking about oaths and actually coming up with how to formulate those ideas into words was a struggle, however I believe I have come up with something that is only mildly crap :p

The thing you have to understand with my mindset about my toons is I don’t really care about the faction that are in.  If they are alliance, they hate horde or whatever the larger evil is (death wing anyone), and same with my horde toons, they typically hate the alliance.  The issue I have found is that my toons have been back and forth so many times in their life, I tend to just see them as their class and leave it at that.  I wrote some oaths trying to express how my main characters see their life and any oaths they may have taken to continue on their chosen path (horde or alliance :)  – yes I know a whole bunch of friends just screamed that I have to choose a side!!!)

My warrior has taken the following oath:
I pledge my life for yours to protect you from all danger and spill the blood of our enemies, before a drop of yours is shed. I shall honour our earth, I shall cleanse in the water, I shall breath in the air, I shall feast with our clan by the fire.  Always must I believe my shield is as important as my heart, and should one break the other will follow.  I am more than my weapon, and my scars will ever be a reminder of the trials we have suffered and the battles we have won.

My Paladin took:
The light shall absolve me; in the light, I shall triumph. Any pain shall be healed, any fear will be quelled. Within the light we will become one, our triple aspect becoming greater than any evil our world can attempt to destroy me with. Protection, healing and killing shall be my future with the understanding I must remember to always protect those who cannot protect themselves. This is my oath until the light leaves my body for the last time.

My Mage:
We bring the storms and we can bring the calm. We are the army that lights up the night sky.  Together we are stronger than man, demon or god.  The fire burns within us, seeking destruction; ice stills our mind, seeking the calm and the arcane flows through our veins; bursting with knowledge.  Seek the wisdom to defeat our enemies, create the balance in your mind and allow the fire in your soul to be shared with your allies.

and finally my Druid:
I am bound to the moon, as the earth is bound by the sun. I feel the turning of the seasons as one feels the rage in battle, all my forms are given to the service of the old gods. I shall nourish the earth as she nourishes me and I will fight our enemies without reservation if they cause damage to the land and the spirits which inhabit it. I fight for those who do not understand the ways of the spirit, so that one day the fight will no longer be needed.

I can’t wait to see more oaths!

Sweet weapon and general maintenance

I realised I had not handed in my Wrathion quest after picking up the Chimera of Fear, so I trundled off to do that and discovered things about our leader I think is awfully sexy :p cage match anyone?? But also, he may not be the best person to lead the Alliance…or is he??  I felt he handled the situation with Garrosh well, but I would have preferred to see him slaughter in that lovely cinematic, but I can’t be mad at Thrall for stopping that…I have a soft spot for him.


The creation of a jewel was pretty cool as well, I loved how he added everything to it…such power!!


I am now up to the quest section that requires me to collect Valor points, so I basically will be spending the next few weeks just doing dailies/dungeons to make it happen.  Hubby needed the LFR as well as he didn’t realise he already had all the sigils he needed  So we jumped back there (we are now up to the same section of the quest!) and I was using my golden coins of fortune to roll for loot….I had more than 20 (I had some boxes in my bags that I couldn’t empty) so even though I was not able to receive loot from the usual method, rolling gave me loot.  Cheating??  maybe?

Anyway I scored weapons..every time…one cloak…but weapons and weapons and more weapons; one of them was this hot as hell dragonesque looking sword!!!  Which I stuck my brand new Sha crystal into from Wrathion…I will never get rid of this sword, and in fact I am thinking I may need to design an outfit to suit it…I love it….I had only just decided to get rid of my offhand and use a staff as well….but the second I saw this…I knew the staff was gone and my umbrella was back , until I find a replacement…must look up offhands that I can purchase with points somewhere…


Also discovered in my travels about the Exalted Tillers daily quests for other factions..oh my awesome!!!  I am doing Shado pan and August Celestials daily at the moment including their quests to help me get there faster.  I am still miles off being revered with either of them, but every little bit helps I am sure. If I can get her to revered and pick up the rep token it will make it much easier on my pally to start doing dailies and earning some rep and money.  I will try and log onto her this week and start getting some funds up…I can’t even afford to run LFD at this stage, no repair money, so I might just go DPS,  grab dailies and go crazy, it doesn’t take much to gather some gold that way.

On a side note, I don’t know what happened on my mage, but I have started to improve my DPS on her…on the LFR we were in I was doing in the realm of 120 – 140k consistently, of course not during the periods of crazy moving etc…I dropped to just above 100k, which I still think is ok.  I did some reading and found out 3 very valuable things…I was casting frostbolt occasionally…which is bad bad bad bad…I was also wasting a glyph spot for that and I was not using Alter Time properly. Now that I have corrected those two minor things it seems to be much better.  I am still not sure how it could change it that much…but I am not going to argue with maths and proof :p

I do need to spend some time with my boomy now that I have changed her stats around and see if it improves me or if i still suck at the gameplay aspect :)  It really could just be that I can’t play the spec. Of course I would be devastated, but life isn’t always fair is it? hehehe



Dumbest things I have done recently

So returning to a game you love is pretty difficult because it is amazing the amount of information you forget that at one time seemed really important, but that you don’t realise you have forgotten, because like a remembral – you can’t remember what it is your forgot, even if you do know that you have forgotten something.

I have spent the last month trying to find Evocation in my spellbook, because I realised I had a glyph for it, but wasn’t using it. I spend about 15 minutes every night trying to find it thinking I have missed it on each page, I checked my talent trees to see if it something I needed to spec into now, and concluded I was crazy because it was gone.  I finally decided this morning to google it…turns out…I am using rune of power (duh – which I knew) but that is what replaces evocation!  IDIOT!!!  IDIOT!!!!!!

Of course, that is nothing compared to the idiocy of last night.  I discovered noxxic has a list of approx DPS at differing gear levels, which is goddamn fantastic!  I am of course nowhere near for any of my toons – but it certainly gives me something to aim for so I know what I should be doing.  Anyway I found this after some heroics last night in which my boomy could not get above 20k and infact the healer was beating me in kitty form as resto – she is very well geared though at 550 something whereas I am only barely scraping into the 470 area.  However according to noxxic I should be able to hit about 70k dps….LOL…sure thing buddy!!

I decided then to try and find more hit on my gear somehow, after complaining to the hubby about the lack of hit on boomy timeless isle gear and how I had to reforge all the spirit off because it was useless to me, he advised to check out Mr Robot. I was reticent, but did it anyway and it was telling me to reforge back into spirit – enter my tirade about spirit being useless I don’t need mana regen blah blah blah…..yeah…you can all laugh at me now.  Spirit = hit for some classes.  What is worse, after the hubby had finished laughing at me I remembered the hundreds of disputes I had seen in LFD because DPSers had taken gear with spirit (boomies and SP’s mainly – I am sure there was another class as well – I want to say shammies??).  How could I forget something so instrumental to the classes?

I guess this is the joy of coming back to a game 12 months later, you do forget things and need to spend time re-learning.  I know I am still trying to learn how to play again, I am better on my mage because I have played her for so long, but with other toons I am really struggling to get into the swing of it.  Heroics are also very hard as most of the time I am running with people who are very well geared and hitting the 180k+ DPS mark, which means mobs die faster than I can cast a spell – on both my mage and my boomy.  It makes it hard to see where I am sitting in reality and harder to judge what I need to improve.

I know on my mage in LFR I can sometimes be in the top 10 for damage and hitting just over 100k DPS, but according to noxxic I should be hitting 250k + dps…as a frost mage at my gear level and that is not maximum – that is realistic….no way!?!?!?!?  I have to spend some time on a dummy and test out wtf I am doing wrong as I am missing out on a lot of dps.  I need to examine combat logs of mages and see what they are doing that I am not.    Anyway, I am sure, like the previous things, there is something I have forgotten to do….I just have to find out what that is!!!




Guild update

I haven’t really spoken about the current guild situation, which is to say, we don’t really have one.  We are in the old guild we created with just our toons as we switch them over to alliance to play with our best mates, but we haven’t really considered our options in regards to the future, I don’t want to just be by ourselves as it makes it hard to find groups and meet people to actually talk to about the game.

The question was posed to me from a couple of my blogging friends, about our future plans so it got me thinking about what we actually want to do.  I have toons spread across 3 servers now and in the end I really only want to just be in a home again.

My priest is in Gen’s guild just slowly leveling and being a nuisance to the guildies who seem to be very non verbal when I am on my priest, so I could just be missing the exciting times :p. There was a plan to do some flexi’s with them, but I think poor Gen has taken a break and has probably disappeared into the Caverns of Time!! I just moved my pally over to my second home with Navi and the Frostwolves.  I confess to having further increased my soft spot for the frosties.  I read “Rise of the Horde” recently and Durotar of the Frostwolves was very noble and honourable, every time they said “Frostwolves” in the book I felt a little spasm of pride that I can consider myself one.  In name  – if not deeds just yet.

With xpac looming as well, it would be nice to figure out what we want to do. I know with my schedule I cannot commit to a raiding team unless they also have enough DPS they can rotate me out for the weeks I am on late shift.  Hubby has mentioned he would like to raid as it gives him something to always be looking into, takes his mind off work stress – which is a valid lifestyle choice in my opinion :)

I cannot imagine raiding on anything other than my mage, but I moved my pally (who is now 86.5) so I could do runs or flexis with the Frosties in any spec that was needed to fill the spots…if it comes up of course.  I know I can tank, and I was starting to heal on her and I have DPS’d on a pally…so I sort of have all bases covered should it be needed until the xpac.  I might add, thanks to the timeless isle, she has an entire set – excluding gloves and cloak of gear for when she hits 90..but only one set sadly.  Plan to get her leveled first before doing much else.

My druid now has both a resto and boomy set from the timesless isle as well, so that means I essentially have another toon I can flexi on.

In another fortnight I may just move my mage over to the Frosties, but given I just changed her alliance it will cost me a pretty penny..but I am still thinking I might just do that and be done with it.  I don’t want to make any decisions that will affect my hubby negatively though and so I am trying to get him into other guilds to meet people before making decisions.  I want to ensure he is happy, but he seems content to avoid people in game at the moment, and I don’t blame him – we haven’t really been successful with people in the past. Once bitten, twice shy?

Anyway we shall see how it pans out over the next fortnight.


Catch up….long post

ok, so I started blogging and then have been so addicted to the game I have done nothing but play.  So, this post will be an attempt at a full update which I can then proceed to update normally after :) There is a lot in here, so bear with  me and enjoy the amount of stuff one person can get up to in just over a month.

Starting with my druid is now 90!!!  Woot :)  I love my boomy, as my old readers would know, I have however, never been able to play boomy – even after reading, testing and practising.  I love the spec…I just suck, but that should never stop you from playing – just don’t do it when it matters :p


My priest is now 81 – slowly getting her up, hubby and I are levelling together with his rogue.  I am enjoying playing a SP, but I do forget I have a heal button which can sometimes be very useful.  I haven’t had a change to get much past 81 as we have been busy doing dailies on our mains. I wish you got an achievement banner at every level, it would look so much better than 80!


Of course this leads to achievement chasing with so many different quest areas and achievements associated with them.  All of these have been done with just me as a frost mage and hubby on his SP so I think we are pretty awesome for having completed so many – and some were quite challenging in lower end gear.  There was the rares on thunder isle and the rares for each type of race which were the most difficult as clothies…but only a couple took multiple attempts and that was more because of added mob respawns.




As part of the dailies you can do achievements without even realizing what you need to actually do to defeat them :)  I did mention to hubby that perhaps we needed to kill the bloods?


You also discover achievements that should be done because they are fun and nerve wracking at the same time – yes, 90 seconds on those pillars doesn’t seem long, until you are trying not to fall off!


Or achievements you have no idea how you actually got….Hubby had gotten this a couple of days ago, so I had made a concerted effort to focus…but I swear – I don’t remember throwing any fire down, I was studiously laying down the oil first…I am certainly not going to say no to this though!!



I have done most of the LFR’s at this point, but missed a couple of screenies as I didn’t have my addon running, but I only have SoO to go now!!  Even thought it took us about 8 attempts to finally get a Pinnacle of Storms LFR!!  And the second half of Mogu Shan I finally got done as well!  Woot Woot!  Some of the boss fights are fantastic…completely fantastic, others a little bland in LFR, but for the moment I am content with being in a raid again.


Vale of eternal Sorrows (which I have been calling Shadows – fail reading there on my part, no wonder no one knows wtf I am talking about)


Phew!!  There are going to be a couple more posts but for the moment I think I have bored you all enough!!  Such a good time in game since I have been back. Really has been so much fun!

Old schooling :)

Last night the guild decided to do some Firelands, yes I admit I am being slightly selfish there by wanting to get embers.  I am now up to 9 of the little blighters – I am beginning to think I really need to find a Firelands group running 25 man via some of those Xrealm sites.  I want my legendary!

Anyway we managed to get up to Alyzrazor, we wiped on her though.  It is a tough fight for people seeing it the first time, and I was conscious of the time for the people that needed to leave.  We had a couple of Frosties come with us and kept a spot for another one who eventually appeared like magic :)  It was a fantastic run and even found out about someone who lives nearby, I like meeting people who live close to me given we are in regional Victoria.

We wiped on Lord Volcanowankerhead twice, the first time at 2%, the DK tank getting him 4% all by himself.  My bad judgement on that one I forgot which one of the DK’s was tanking and called the wrong thing. I felt so ashamed.  The next attempt went awfully bad, then the third one was cake walk, although a little unsteady at the start.  I really really really cannot stress how much I hate that fight.  We wiped on Baleroc once, which given a few hadn’t seen it we lasted quite while, we got him to below 20% pretty sure with about 4 of us dead.  Then it all went weird because certain people who shall remain nameless wanted the boss to be tanked on the side!!  THE SIDE?!!?!?  OMG, I couldn’t cope with it, I felt wrong the entire fight, never mind we were on the wrong side of the field anyway, we were on the left and should have been on the right!!  ARGHH!!!!!

I can’t handle change when I know stuff works a particular way, it messes my head up, not just ingame either, when hubby is driving and goes an alternate route it screws me up and I get all freaked out about it.  He mocks me of course, but, seriously I know I am a control freak, just don’t mess with my shizz!!!  ehehehh

We went off to Malygos after that as hubby only needed that one boss on his Shammy for the title, and we managed to get the 6 minutes and under achievement as well.

The night before we went to Ulduar 25 with the Frosties and Arvash as well.  I went on my boomy as she had never seen the place and OMG it was so much fun.  I sucked all night, I am so out of practice on my girl, but we were smashing through everything.  She got achievements on every single boss :)

Freya’s room had me wanting to spend hours in there, so many herbs I wanted to pick!!!  I HAVE TO GO BACK!!!

My beautiful girl, even saw Algalon!!!  ALGALON!!  Can I just say that is a horible fight…maybe it is just me and I am blind as a bat, but I can barely see the red circles to get out of them.  I know hubby was happy to see that fight, as he had never seen it before.  I do wonder how hard it would be to do that Herald of the Titans thing…I am tempted to find a group – but I need a toon first that I can even do it on.  My hunter is the closest to 70.

It was pretty cool though, I would have stayed for the Razormaw achievements, but I was falling asleep as it was, and I hope they did it!!  Grats to them if they did :)

I am having so much fun now doing old content!!

Alt run of shame

We did an alt run tonight because of the save to the DW kill. It was a pretty good run considering we had 8 alts in the run, we got the first four bosses down.

The shame I mention is my own. I was an awful raid leader tonight, I was so focused on trying to get my rotation as boomy that I wasn’t leading very well, so when I tried leading my rotation suffered. I couldn’t balance everything (no pun intended) but a boomy rotation is so different to a Mage. I do ok in LFR because I only need to watch my rotation and not anything else.

I healed on yorsahj because it was a little heavy for the healers, I sucked by the way. I gave it my best though and we got him down. I also called out badly on the colours which didn’t work and then we wiped, but then after copping shit for it, it didn’t wipe us the next time. Anyway, I guess something was different the other time, anyway I apologised profusely for my bad calls.

My DPS was barely above 16k all night, I have seen myself do much better, but I was just disappointed. If I want this o be my main in MoP, I have to be able to play the fucking thing better. My hubby however, jumped on his shammy and was fighting for top spot with 2 hunters, sitting at about 25k with pretty sub gear; he is so impressive as a player :)

Onto other things, hubby and I spent all day playing the shammy and paladin, we got them to 84! About 40% through, so not long to go :). We also have hubby’s druid to 83 and his tips were helping me in healing DS.

All in all an eventful night and I am exhausted.

I joined the crazy club!

Since I joined the Frosties on Dath, my warrior has decided he is quite enamored and would like to stay for a while, I have no idea what they get up to when I am not around, but it must be good.  I suspect something to do with drumming and half naked tauren females of a suitable age, he does have such a soft spot for the feather headdress’.

Anyway,  getting off track there.

I have created a tauren druid to keep him company, however given my recent guild drama I may change that to a warlock /DK given they are the classes I have not levelled to max (or have any intention to) and i already have a druid…not sure I want to switch servers with all my toons though – it does get expensive when you have a few inter-dependant toons doesn’t it?  LOL  They really need to have a bulk discounted rate for people to move accounts and not just toons.

I also created a BE rogue to play with. I will see which one takes my fancy more over the next few weeks and see what happens.  My rogue is currently level 10 – two more levels to go and it will be the highest level rogue I have ever had.

You can definitely tell when someone is an addict – when they create a toon and have that many account pets that you get this achieventment :p  I have made her an enchanter and JC…an enchanter would be nice over this side for all my DE’ing needs :)

I decided that I love my druid so much, one wasn’t enough, so potentially, by baby druid will be resto and boomy…or maybe bear….but always boomy….ALWAYS!!   Isn’t she just gorgeous :)  She is currently sitting at level 8.  I stopped her to create my rogue simply because I may move my druid over to Dath.  Either way I am set to level a second druid- which means I have joined the club of those insane people that have multiple max level toons of the same class.  The majority seem to be Pallies and Druids – but I could never level another pally…that would just be hell I think  – it is for that reason I would never level another mage..they sucked so much during the levelling process in Vanilla, I could not do it again!


Also found a flying pig whilst levelling her…I was quite amused.


It’s raining mounts…and pets…hallelujah it’s raining mounts!

Yes it is, I have been meaning to update the last few days and honestly, I have just been so focused on getting the few things done that I needed for the following fantastic show of mounts :)

Follow me behind the cut for all my pretties!

Stupid = Stupid :)

Yup, another grand ole post about my inability to use the soft grey matter embedded in some cavity on the top of my body.

I am sooo close on my three toons to getting a mount each from the darkmoon faire, my mage being only 9 tickets off now, my druid is about 15 off and my pally about 60 off (so admittedly not that close).

However, I did all my darkmoon faire stuff on my three toons when it came out so I could bump them up another notch.  Then realised the next day, stupidly…that the dailies award a prize ticket as well….DUH!!!  Really?!!?  I have spent months just doing the main quests and never going back for the dailies and wondering why I was so far behind on the pets and mounts…..but somewhere in my head I knew they gave tickets…i just…forgot it temporarily?

Brain failure!

What I find so funny though,  is my fantastic plan to actually level my druid professions to the magical 75 mark for fishing, cooking and first aid so i could do the profession quests…after how many months of the DMF?? She was the only toon I didn’t have them even started on.  I do, however, refuse to do archaeology on any other toons…it was hard enough on my mage!!

So after feeling like a complete nuffy for a) not utilizing the professions quests, I was b) not even doing the dailies for 7 days to get the most tokens…I am now – hopefully on track for getting my mounts and pets next month on my toons.

Yes…hail me, for I am the leader of nuffyland!!

Need your help healing!

As most people who read my blog would know, I have been contemplating switching to my Druid come MoP.

This are two major factors to the decision – I have a viable O/S and account wide achievements and mounts etc.

The issue being, I would like to be able to heal, but given I have never healed before how do you get into it? How do you start learning the skills, at what point do you know you can heal well?

I tried healing on my priest in lowbie dungeons and in the end switched her back to damage because it was just too hard for me – no mana = no heals and I felt useless for it.

My Druid however already has a pretty good boomy set which at worst case I could switch to resto, and of course I am going to read everything I can about doing it..but I need suggestions about how to go about actually getting started :)

It isn’t like you have a rotation like dps does, and it’s not like you only have to keep mobs hitting you…if healers screw it – people die and I don’t want to have that happen…..

Maybe I am just not healing material….lol

My cup runneth over!

I cannot express how happy I am right now :)  It has been an absolutley epic day!!  EPIC!!!

It started off with Molten Core rep farming and DING!

MC was my first ever raid, and I never ran it enough to get exalted back in vanilla – only honoured,  it has taken me years to get it done.  I really wanted it to be completed before MoP – I just had to find the time to do it!  Next is BT which I only have to clear 5 times.

I also found fantastic transmog robes – I love them!!  I have since discovered finding things to match it will be a problem. I will persevere though, there has to be some sort of outfit I can make with them.

The image doesnt really show the lovely leaves around the back and gorgeous detail.  I really love them though!!  So I am on a mission now!!

I then did LFR on my druid and scored my tier leggings, which gives me a set of 4 now.  I am so wrapped as that was the last piece I was chasing :) I will continue to gear her up with VP gear and LFR stuff, but I can do 10 mans on her now as she s above the 385 ilevel that a lot of people ask for.

Anyway after a few false starts for DS pugs, we just always had a couple short that we couldn’t find, and so would wait around 40 minutes then disband. So after some more waiting around, I found  a group made up of people from he previous pug I had run which was a success.

That is Deathwing – DEAD!!!!!  After all the horrific PUGS in the last few weeks I never thought it would happen.  We would get so close and then just not go anywhere.

I also got the 25,000 Valor Point achievement as well but my screenshotter didn’t get it.  I thought it was kind of cool that I scored that achievement with the DW one.

Then I had an epic roll of 98 to win the Staff :)

So after all that excitement I decided to log off and just bask in the fantastic day I just had!  I am content now, I have killed DW on 10man, I just have to get Rags down and I will be completely up to date and ready for MoP :)  I can just focus on chasing the achievements I want to!!

LFR lols old post I forgot to publish :)

Every week without fail I run LFR on my Druid for the VP and gear. I despise it, but until I get to 385 Ilevel I can’t really get into a PUG!

Today had me amazed though. We wiped on Ultraxion trash, then we wiped on Ultraxion because apparently only 3 people were doing above 20k DPS. If you switched it to current fight though, there was 8 people doing 20k. It never helps when people start fights early though, half the raid was at the wrong end of the platform and so it was all a mess anyway to start with.

Anyway, when we got back in and re-did, loot drops and then everyone was needing on everything, so then huge arguments started about people taking loot when they didn’t need it, someone had a 403 chest and they took the LFR token.

What amuses me, is that people complain bout the DPS, yet it is almost impossible to get gear to improve their DPS. Anyway we then wiped on warmaster and I decided to leave.

I jumped into another LFR, I came into a wipefest and got worried, but we killed warmaster and then more crying about loot, we killed spine easily enough and then wiped 4 times on madness because people kept starting before we had a full group. On the fifth start- we had three healers and they started it. I dropped and decided to give up on LFR for the week, I got most of it done and I don’t need a weapon, the extra VP would have been nice though.

I am moderately geared on my druid, and I can’t really do much better DPS than what I am doing. So I am trying to get my VP up so I can buy more gear, but I would really like one more their piece for the four set bonus. Hopefully next week :)

I do giggle every time people whine about loot whores, there is nothing you can do, and I do wonder how the new changes are going to alter the aggression in MoP.

LFR is my future

So after another Morning of looking up guilds I am giving up – officially. I can’t continue looking for a guild when I am just setting myself up for disappointment.

I am pretty much just going to stick with my current guild but as a non raider and just do LFR on the toons I want to, likely my Druid, Mage and probably Monk.

It is not an easy decision because I do love raiding, but perhaps once MoP comes out there will be more opportunities, but at the moment everyone is quiet about recruitment or raiding too many hours. I can’t start at 6pm and I can’t finish much later than 10.30 and even that is pushing it.

LFR I can do whenever I want and there is no real stress tied to it.

I need to keep telling myself that I will be content with LFR and that it won’t be depressing….but I know deep down I will always want the thrill of being in a 25 man raid working with others and killing bosses.

All things come to those who wait they say, but my blog is going to be less about raiding now and more about levelling, toons and achievements in all likelihood, unless something pops up by chance.

So, here is to new adventures and new toons :)

Long, Strange, Trip



I got me a Violet Drake!

I only had one more day to get it and I did not want to miss out this year :)  I always fail because of the PVP achievements you need for Children’s week, not being a big PVPer, I have no res gear and no PVP skills :)  I was getting really annoyed after constant failure that I was crying in guild chat.  A guildie offered to help me out and as you can see from the above – we were successful!

4/4 matches as well, got to every single one of them.  WSG was a worry as not one horde person came to get our flag until about 1 minute left on the game so we smashed him and got my last one.  I also got the damage control achievement in AB for doing 300k damage in one match.  I never thought I would see that achievement, so I was a little chuffed with myself – seriously, I normally spend an entire game dead or ressing – so to get any damage was pretty impressive for me!

The Violet put me at 99 mounts, so I logged off to check the armoury and see what I was missing for the last one to get to 100, and discovered that I hadn’t bought all the nether wing drakes, I was missing two of them :)  So Bam!  Another achievement today as well :)  4 new mounts in total, and a new title and lots of achievements!  Was so much fun.

I then decided to take my poor unloved druid to LFR and won a necklace on her- YAY, and I also discovered that I bought a wrong tier piece as the 2 set bonus isn’t working because I have one boomy and one resto piece – yes I feel like a right royal twat and am so embarrassed about it :)  So I have to fix that ASAP!!  My poor baby girl.

Mataoka over at WoWSugar has gone ahead and done another competition like the plate one recently thrown into the blogosphere – called Leather and Lace.  This one is more my taste considering I have gone to a lot of effort on my druid and my pally was not transmogged until about 3 days ago. Rules and information are on her website :D

I wanted my baby to look like a druid with greens and browns and yellows, to be earty yet still sassy.  I did a few lowbie quests for some gear like my weapon which has ever changing flowers on it and I scoured the AH and professions of people to find gear I liked and matched my overal look.

I love my druid – almost as much as my mage – almost…follow me to see her Outfit to be Azeroth’s Next Top Leather Wearer!!

Was it good for you?

Attendance boss struck tonight again, so we went and did BH and then attempted FL.  I say attempted because we wiped on trash multiple times and we couldn’t get Shannax down.

We were 9 manning him and getting to about 1% by shear dumb luck as everyone was dead by the 10% mark really.  We had a mix of alts and mains, however the alts are just as well geared as mains thanks to obsessed guildies with too much time on their hands and LFR.  We were also 2 healing with a pally and a shammy.

I am so frustrated that we cannot even do FL even being over geared as we are we should be able to get in there and not have too much trouble…shouldn’t we??

I am contemplating trying to get my mage into another guild for progression and leaving my boomy with my guild to raid with them as well.  Finding a progression guild that raids on friday night/saturday morning may be a struggle though…I could maybe do a wednesday morning raid as well, which means i could look at US guilds I suppose and not just oceanics…

I am frustrated because I do want to see content, I would like to be running with people who can play and don’t blame class imbalance as to why they can’t do better.  We are not talking about top end players here so the difference between what can be achieved at our level is not the factor…..I am frustrated with constant afk’s, late starts, and general inability to get in or out of the fires….
