WoW Screenshot a Day Challenge – September 25

Today’s prompt: H is for

…hourglass! This quest is fun – especially with the “advice” Future Me dishes out. The only problem I have is… why would my future, more experienced magey-self be MELEE-ING THE ADDS?

Weekday Waffles: Patchy Edition

Patch day today! Not too long to go now as of this writing, assuming they manage to meet their “scheduled” maintenance hours.

I’m excited for all the new content, but also ridiculously exhausted right now, because I’ve spent a loooong night power-leveling my way through the last four levels on my gnome mage, and then dragging her through the Hordebreaker questline.

That was the ONE thing I wanted to accomplish before 5.4 hit (aside from valor-capping on the main, which didn’t take very long). I’d initially planned to get it done over the weekend, but it was Pallytank’s grandmother’s 85th (I think, no one seemed to be sure…) birthday and we had to travel back to his hometown for the celebration. I almost thought I wouldn’t have enough time, having never tried to really rush through leveling before, but as it turns out I am pretty damn good at last minute pushes. Gotta thank all those late-night essay writing sprees I did back in university for that. ūüėÄ

And so, I present to you: Funderling, Double Agent and Hordebreaker!

Not too sure why the achievement graphic bugged out like that, but eh.

Oh Shaohao, you don't have to bow to me just because I'm a Hordebreaker! STOP IT, YOU.

I think I’ll take a break from leveling for now, though. Having six (!) max level toons and only a couple truly raid-ready is a little silly. It’ll be fun to spend time working on that!

Speaking of raids, I think we’ll only be starting normals next week. Pallytank and I are going out of town for a friend’s engagement party and our raid leader has a work event/training/thing, so this week’s raid is canceled. Real Life boss strikes again! We MAY try out flex raiding for fun and giggles, depending on interest. Either way, it doesn’t really matter to me – being in a solid and steady group after such a long period of drifting and pugging makes for happytimes.

As for the WoW Screenshot a Day Challenge, yes I’ve missed the last few days again – my quest to become Funderling the Hordebreaker pretty much wiped out everything else from my mind. I promise to get all caught up again lickety-split!

…After I have a nap.

…AFTER I check out ALL THE THINGS, because RIGHT as I was about to hit post, I noticed that realms are up! HOLYCRAP GOTTA GO 5.4 IS HERE.

WoW Screenshot a Day – September 2

Today’s prompt: My name begins with…

mynamebeginswith

 

…M! Which also stands for Mage. And Machine. And Mecha-gnomes. All of which get featured in this picture! I’m still leveling away on Funderling – it’s a mad rush to get to 90 and the Hordebreaker title. Hopefully I’ll make it; I’m sure it’s fairly obvious by now that I have issues with time management that tends to make these deadline things difficult ;P

Day 23: Yellow

Day 24: In the background

I love how there's so much snow in Kun Lai, yet there's a gorgeous tree in full bloom right there in the background.

In Your Basin, Assaulting Your Bases

It seems that all the times I’ve let WoW get in the way of something – a new game, book, TV, whatever – has come back to haunt, and the¬†blog (being the ‘new’ WoW-related thing) is now being gotten in the way of… if that makes sense. Adulthood has reared its no-nonsense head for the past week, shoving much upheaval onto my keyboard and essentially preventing any attempts at Le Post¬†the Second¬†getting written¬†sooner.

Karma: being a beeesh since before it was cool.

Between that and having to deal with yet another week of my raid group having to pug unreliable healers (the latter will most likely be the underlying reason of many future posts – you have been forewarned), I’ve spent very little time on my druid save for finally completing the Lorewalker achieves and getting Pandaren Ambassador.

Instead, in a fit of stress-induced recklessness, I put my non-existent badass game face on and jumped feet-first into PVP. And not just any PVP, mind you…

Meet the brave soldiers who subjected themselves willingly to Arathi Basin on its call-to-arms weekend.

Low level PVP – where TRUE heroes are made!

Frankly, AB is one of my favourite battlegrounds – but past experience has taught me that doing ANY bg on its call-to-arms weekend is pretty much delivering yourself to graveyard camping at your home base by premades. I try to avoid¬†massacre when I can, but at low levels there aren’t many other choices and I figured AB¬†trumps WSG/EoTS anyday. And premades can’t possibly be common when you’ve only got a 60% speed ground mount, right?

I tried it out on my mage first. I’ll admit –¬†I really wanted to see how Alliance played. It feels like they win 7 times out of 10 when I PVP on my druid, and most of those 7 times involved much ROFLstomping over my dead body. I was curious. I had to know. What’s their secret?

My mage not¬†only had a¬†really exciting time pewpewpewing, she somehow¬†managed to get Disgracin’ the Basin¬†on her first AB run. My monk and warlock? Died a lot, even with all the healing (Xhiwei is mistweaver-specced) and healthstones¬†and CC’s at their disposal.¬†

Alliance had, in the few ABs I joined, a distinct lack of:

  • fighting on the roads
  • fighting away from the flag
  • poor defense – people who capped a flag stayed to defend it
  • QQing

Horde had all of the above. Secret: revealed.

Granted, this could be down to pure luck and good timing, since I only played for about an hour in total before going to bed. Maybe Alliance-side is extra strong at night? I know Horde has plenty of capable PVPers at all levels, having been fortunate to be carried by them on my previous, sporadic¬†attempts on my druid. Maybe by coincidence, they’re all in a different level bracket?

All in all, this calls for MOAR PEEVEEPEE! I’d say it’s because I want to do more Horde vs. Alliance comparisons, but who am I kidding – I had so much fun flailing around that I can’t wait to go back.¬†ROAAARRR!

(End note: to the warlock in that first AB I did on Funderling, you are made of so many levels of awesome for conjuring all those lockrocks and trading them to every. single. person. on the team. That was quite possibly the best¬†act I’ve seen someone do in-game ever, and I’m making it a point to follow your example on my own warlock from now on. FREE COOKIES FTW)
