Paladin got to the top!!

Woot!  My sexy pally chick made it to 90!!  So happy about that, not only because it means I am max level with the frosties and can actually do stuff with them now, but I also scored a sweet arse achievement, which I was no even aware of previously…I wonder if there are more for getting more toons to 90…I should ask Owl, he has like 11 I think he said…complete nutter!!  I couldn’t do it…some classes are just not suitable playing companions for me 🙂

My last part to 90 was spent in dungeons…strangely, Oom said he would come along and when we tried to sign up with him we couldn’t…the LFD system told me he was too high to do normals, and when Oom tried to sign up it said heroics only.  My guess it is ilevel based?  I have to look into it.  I think it is annoying that max levels can’t sign up for normal dungeons….if that is indeed the case.  So, in the end although others had offered to run some normals with me (and forgotten *cough* *cough*) it wouldn’t have mattered anyway.  I will make them pay with heroics though…”sorry I lost my taunt button???”  <insert evil MUHAHAHAHA here>.

Also hubby brought his druid back to Frosties, figured it was easier as it was already in the guild so just did a guild transfer.  He is slowly levelling, I think he is 88 he said?  I was so focused on getting to 90 I was pretty neglectful 😦  But we ran some dungeons together and that helped him get some xp, so all very useful in the end.

I am terrified of having to get my gear sorted, in fact, I spent some time on the Timeless gathering more gear and I basically have a prot set (armour only) and trying to gather enough coins to buy the shield/weapon.  And I spent all the money I had gemming/chanting it up…I am pretty broke now, but thankfully I got to 90 without setting foot in most of the map, so I will just slowly start questing the areas to open up dailies and get me some money to pay for flasks/repairs.

I did create a bank alt so I can offload stuff to the AH and hopefully that will bring in some cash..but it is a slow burn on that.

I asked the Frostie GM what spec my second should be – I have no immediate plans to raid but if I am online and they are short I would rather have my toon ready for it.  Prot will be her main – always has – but he advised DPS was more an issue than heals.  So Ret she is, with her second set of almost complete timeless isle gear, I spent some time on the dummy and was hitting 32k consistently, with half ret/half prot gear, so I think I can potentially increase that without much effort once I start getting gear.  Of course I am nowhere near the hit cap, and my expertise is short of where it needs to be on either set, but I haven’t upgraded any gear yet  (not enough VP) and some of my gear is still really low level.

For reference hit needs to be 7.5% and expertise 15%  – I am apparently slightly over the hit cap…well bugger me…I was sure I was under, which means I can reforge into expertise now and get that sorted 🙂

I get the fuzzies

Last night I was levelling my pally, I am pretty focused on getting her to 90 as soon as I can, I would like a level 90 horde toon to do things with friends on this faction.  I was pretty amped when I logged on as I knew I only had 50% to be done to get to 87.

Ding for me! Just three more to go…88 is my worst level because it is the in between one…so I was chatting to Aza who said he would run some dungeons with me when get to the “can’t keep going” point.  I am quit excited and although I hate to impose on people I adore, I have to confess to be ever so slightly excited at the prospect of getting a couple of runs under my belt with my Frostie friends.

Pally 87

For lack of a better description, I am still starstruck by a lot of people in that guild because I have been reading about them for so long, I confess to being a bit of a groupy.  It is after all by reading Nav’s blog in the first place that I met them all.  I want to be 88 already so I can start running with them, so of course I must quest!

In my travels last night, I discovered this little mob sitting by a tree :

Ferdinand

I haven’t read the book, Ferdinand the Bull, I only know of it from the movie “The Blind Side”, which is a favourite of mine.  I was so excited to see him, I couldn’t bring myself to kill him either – he is from a children’s book after all!!  ❤ Blizz right now though.

I also did one of my favourite quests – mini dragons!!!!! Yes, I will try and get a picture of this quest with all of  my toons!!

Pally dragons

Of course last but certainly not least, towards the end of the night, someone jumped online that I had been dying to see since I got back, but had managed to miss every single time I was on – thanks to battle tags though, that will never be a problem again!!  But he remembered how much I loved one of his macros…(and I believe I have posted about it before) but I was so happy to see it!!

Bunny welcome

Honestly it just makes me giggle my arse off every time! It’s a bunny…driving a tank!!!!  A BUNNY!!!  Yeah, I never said i was going to make sense!! We had a very interesting discussion about analaog vs digital and measurements from the beginning of time – and I begged him to put the entire lesson into a blog post because it was so fascinating. I want to share it without stuffing up facts…but I was amazed last night and was having so much fun!

Onward to 88 I say!!

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.

Running with Wolves and bears and kitties oh my!

Last night, I got messaged about doing a Heroic FL run…did you say a “get some eternal embers run? – with my frosties?? ”  – hell yes!!  I am in.

In between the 3 minutes it took for me to get back online we weren’t getting any embers 😦  Instead we tried for The Throne of the four winds – heroic.  Can I just say, WTF?!!?!?  I came on my pally, hubby on his SP and one of our guildies came to heal.

I had so much fun, just wished I had my warrior geared enough really, so I could run stuff with them more often on their server and with the rest of the guildies 🙂

We didn’t get either down heroically, but it was fun trying to do it. We got an achievement which means it was definteily not for nothing!

What I found super funny though was the healer that came with me was having real trouble understanding all the fast talking aussies…One with a very odd sounding mic and slight accent, so he was whispering me and asking for clarification, but even I was having trouble with the 3000 words per second these guys speak at 😀

I was lucky though…just hit the mob and dance ws all I was focusing on 🙂 I kept being nubtank and taunting the boss off Fue..I felt so stupid for doing it.  He was very good natured about it!

The twitterverse was busting last night waiting for the MOP cinematic to happen – it was LATE!!!  However the Chris Metzenesque human was worth the wait 😀  It ws very cool, I am definitely rolling a monk if I get to slam down my stave and have the woosh of the wind happen – oh hell YEAH!!!!!  I can’t wait for the next month to fly by- so disappointed I have no annual leave to take…. 😦

Some more excitement this morning on my twitter feed with an ex-GM Keeva coming back from my dream guild, with a new site – going to see if she has any tips to get me healing on my druid :p  Not sure if she plans on getting much game time in, but it is nice to see her back around the place 😀  Here’s to hoping I can get her into some runs with us and the frosties if she has time.

There was just too much going on, I didn’t want to inundate everyone with a million posts – so one post will have to do!  eheheh

Ulduar and Dragonwrath

I had an awesome night tonight running Ulduar for achievements with the Frosties.  Thanks to the invention of Cross realms, I was on my mage  🙂  I got Kolibear to come with us for a little wheile and then when hubby finsihed his raid, i got him to come with us as well.  Hubby got heaps of achievements.like 4 at every boss, it was amazing!

My however, I have done a few of them previously for the mount, but tonight I got some that I have been wanting for a while 🙂

Purple Nurples and other addictions :D

Sorry for all the transmog posts lately….I blame JD 🙂  Yes yes!!

Tonight, I transmogged another olympic outfit…the Javelin, but whilst trolling around transmog sites and gear, I found the set I wanted for my warrior….the Revenant set!  All purple and  I chased down some quests which rewarded the items and I have to farm two bosses for my shoulders (Omor in Hellfire ramparts – who didn’t give it up tonight) and Kael in MgT – who I have to kill but can’t be bothered doing right now!  Thanks to McT for all the help he gave me and fantastic mogging talk 🙂

Of course my only issue is a mace now..all the ones I like are from heroic ICC or FL…so I have to lower my preferences 🙂  heheh  But i am calling him the purple nurple!!!

Onto other things, I took my Druid into LFR to heal…and I sucked…I really just don’t get druid healing…although I have only done it a couple of times so perhaps I am being too harsh on myself.  I may just give up on the healing.

My rogue is now level 20 and has riding skills 🙂  This makes me happy as running around it just killing my will to live.  I am not sure how far she will go, but anything is possible.

Hubby got his druid to 84 this morning, and we are currently on our pally/shammy combo trying to get them to 85 as they are fully rested now.  Funny tangent, we had them in a guild which no one ever spoke in – over 400 members and I think I had seen people speak in guild chat once…when I joined about 6 months ago.  So we left that guild today because we just got sick of the silence even when trying to get a conversation started.  About 1.5 minutes after leaving the guild, we get a guild invite to the same guild!!! A generic whisper saying our guild is looking for members, join us type thing, so we both messaged back something much less polite than “we just left your crap guild”.  I did giggle.

We are considering moving the 2 of them over to Dath to be with the frosties…not that we have discussed raiding at all, however hubby did mention that 2 raiding resto druids may not work so he needs another toon option (resto druid because I waffle about Navimie too much I think)….I find this interesting for 2 reasons :

1 – I may be able to convince him to raid if the team is not as unco as he currently experiences.

2 – I have not mentioned raiding at all except that they progressed well and seem to be quite competant.

I felt a little twinge of excitement when he said that because it gave me some hope. I may be able to raid with him horde side again…somewhere!! I had a happy!

My mage is feeling very unloved at the moment, and I do feel bad for her. I might try and do an olympic transmog for her now and see if I can’t give her some loving.
