Looking for a guild?

Alright, here comes my first shameless recruitment plug for my Alliance guild:

Currently recruiting:
Ranged DPS: Any class

Healers: Full – although we will gladly consider any hybrid combo (Healer/Tank or Healer/DPS)

Raid times:
Our core 25 raid takes place 2 days a week:
Friday 6:30pm-10:30pm PST (1pm-5pm AEST Saturday).
Saturday 6:30pm-10:30pm PST (1pm-5pm AEST Sunday).
(above times are for first pull. Invites for raids officially start half hour before go time).

<aus> is a great guild that has been around for a long time (formed in 2004). We’re a large guild with people from all different time zones, so no matter what time you like to play there’s always people online to talk to or run dungeons with. In addition to the 25-man raids on the weekends there are also 10s going on throughout the week. We are 10/12 in the current tier of content. If you’re a ranged or melee dps looking for a new home, come fill out an app!


I now have my fourth level 80. The winner of my alt race was Feyyd, the fire mage.

Immediately after dinging my kind-hearted guildies let me come to a VoA run (i.e. carried me through a VoA run.) Toravon almost one-shot me every time he cast Whiteout. Thank goodness for Frost Ward. I won T10 gloves! Feyyd seems pretty lucky, I never saw anything but PVP gear when I did VoA on my hunter or druid. After the run, someone asked for a port to Dalaran. I looked through my spell book…and realised I hadn’t trained that yet, which everyone got a good laugh out of.

I also did 8 or 9 randoms. Fire AoE is so much fun: Blast Wave! Flamestrike! Dragon’s Breath! Flamestrike! Dead mage! (wait, that’s not a spell). Now I have an itch to gear up. Funny how heroics become exciting again when everything is an upgrade.

In addition to leveling my mage this weekend, my fiance and I spent some time on our little alts. We’re now level 40 and have purchased our dual-specs. He went feral and I am disc. Incoming instant dungeon queues. On Saturday we logged in at Booty Bay, where there was quite the party going on. It was the 2010 Proudmoore Pride Parade. There were fireworks, flares, disco balls and dancing naked elves everywhere. We joined in the celebration for a little while, which was a lot of fun.

In non-WoW news, the G20 is in my city this week. I find the 12-foot chain link fencing everywhere quite fetching. The security checkpoints and 6000 police officers milling about are also endearing. I’ve always wanted to live in a police state. :-/
