Trick or Treat

Last week I mentioned that Hallow’s End was my favorite WoW holiday. I take it back. Fourteen HHM kills on my druid, zero pretty flying horses. Also, apparently Halloween is “be an asshole in randoms” day. I must have missed the memo. I did two random dungeons on my new priest this afternoon. First up was Gnomeregan. We got to the floor with Electrucutioner on it, the pally tank bubbled, pulled 4 packs, pulled the boss, ran down and pulled more packs, then left the group. Asshole. Then I did Razorfen Kraul. A rogue pulled 3 packs of trash then left. Two minutes later the bear tank – after winning a new weapon – pulls a pack and drops group. So: Pallykingz of Kil’Jaeden, Raviny of Silver Hand and Ahbwa of Kilrogg, congratulations you are the tools of the day and prime candidates for the Bee Pit.

On a more positive note, I finally got Less-Rabi on my druid and finished off Glory of the Hero.

Red Proto Drake

Finishing that put me at 8910 achievement points. As long as I do all of Pilgrim’s Bounty I am going to make it to 9000 before Cata. Hooray!

Happy Halloween everyone! I hope you get lots of treats and much better PuGs than I did.

Updates and Ramblings

After spending so much time working on my raid buff posts earlier in the week I feel incapable of writing anything terribly informative today. I would like to say thank you to everyone who linked to the posts on their blogs, guild websites or twitter. My visits over the last few days have tripled. I feel so loved!

Let’s see…what else is going on?

Hallow’s End

It’s that time again. I think this is my favourite holiday in WoW. All over the blogosphere I’ve been seeing people post about getting the Headless Horseman’s mount. A lot of the time on their first try. I haven’t had any luck yet but I remain hopeful (though I really have no reason to be hopeful, I don’t even have a single Brewfest mount). I’m dutifully logging in every hour on my druid (when I’m at home) to Trick or Treat in hopes of finishing a Mask for all Occasions. Achievements based solely on RNG are slightly infuriating.

Achievements

I really wanted to get to 9k achievement points on my druid before Cata but my motivation is fading. I’m sitting at 8825 now (after 35 points being taken away in the patch. Grrr). I got my achievement for doing 1000 daily quests yesterday. I got Gurubashi Arena Grandmaster last week, which felt great to finally finish. I continue to work half-heartedly on Brood of Nozdormu rep (started the scepter quest line), Hydraxian Waterlords rep, Thorium Brotherhood rep (not an achievement itself, but will put me one closer to 40 exalted). I also still 4 have heroic achievements to do but have had absolutely no luck finding a group to do them with.

Hunter

When I first tried out my hunter after the patch, I really hated it. I mostly kept that hatred to myself because I didn’t want to whine too much, but focus made me angry and I decided that I would not play my hunter anymore. I gave it another try yesterday after the much needed damage buffs went through. It’s actually not so bad. I got the hang of the MM rotation and was able to put out 9k on a dummy, compared to the 5k I was doing earlier. I still plan on changing Horde mains in Cataclysm, but I feel better about the hunter changes now.

New Horde Main?

So if I’m not playing my hunter in Cataclysm, who will be my Horde main? I haven’t really decided yet. My highest level characters are my Shaman and my Paladin. Neither of these are exciting me right now. What I really want to be is a protection warrior, but we’ve got a lot of those. I think I will still level one up once Cataclysm is released though. In order to trial a potential new main and cure the pre-Cata blahs I rolled an undead priest this week. Her name is Pasiphae and she is level 9. I’m so excited to ding 10 and get my first talent point. Mind Flay! Psynister has written an excellent guide on levelling a shadow priest in 4.0.1, which I am making use of.

Stealing is Bad

Everyone should go read Keeva’s latest post. The short version is that she found a new druid blog this week and found that almost all the content had been stolen from other blogs and presented as the author’s own work. This is a big no-no. There are two lessons to take from this. First, if you are thinking about copying someone’s work without proper attribution, don’t. Second, if you are a blogger and are concerned about this, read up on Creative Commons Licencing. I knew nothing about it, but have now put one up on my own blog.

Creative Commons Licence

Speaking of bad things, I did something last night that I am not proud of (it wasn’t steal other people’s work). My fiance mocked me relentlessly when he found out and I now feel like a giant hypocrite. I’m not even ready to say what it is yet, though I think someone just outed me.
