I’ve done this quest SO MANY TIMES now, but I can never resist taking it every time I level through Hellfire. What? It’s fun!

WoW Screenshot a Day Challenge!

So in typical me fashion, I’ve decided to hop on the bandwagon and take up Tycertank‘s WoW screenshot a day challenge! I’m horrifically late – also in typical me fashion – pretty much due to my habit of playing the game (hence, taking all the screenshots) on my desktop but blogging from my work laptop. If you think this leads to a lot of incomplete posts with [[INSERT PICTURE HERE]] breaks littered everywhere, you’d be right. The amount of posts I have sitting in my drafts folder as a direct result of this is mind-blowing.

Organisation and time management skills: I haz them not.

I’ll be playing catch-up on the two weeks that I’ve missed, but splitting them into separate chunks to avoid being TOO image-heavy on the posts. That, and also because I only found out about this challenge last week, I’ve only actually been taking screenshots since then. The first seven days’ worth are pictures in my head only.

…Yeah, I gotta fix that. I’m on it, I swear.

Meanwhile, here are my entries for Days 8-15 of the challenge in reverse chronological order!

Day 15: The best

Day 14: Trash

Not sure what broken carts, old hay and flies are doing in the house Yoon supposedly lives in, tbh... This is why I need to be best friends with Gina Mudclaw all the time. (Featuring: Tyel)

Day 13: Fast

FIRST RULE OF ROLL CLUB: YOU DON'T TALK ABOUT ROLL CLUB. Aka I was rolling so fast I forgot I was supposed to be taking pictures. (Featuring: Xerna)

Day 12: Macro

Confession: the 'tips' on the loading screen still teach me new things. Like auto-run, and opening my macro menus.

Day 11: I love doing this!

Raiding is still my favourite thing ever; raiding with a really fun group even more so. (Featuring: Xerna + Pallytank + really fun group + dead Durumu)

Day 10: Beverage

Kun Lai quest where you roll barrels of beer at adds to blow them up. I may or may not have done it multiple times on different toons just for the kabooms. Also, ignore my DK's fantastically mismatched gear. (Featuring: Khione)

Day 9: 2 o’clock

The glyphed Borrowed Time visual disappears really quickly so the fact that I somehow managed to screenshot at EXACTLY 2 o'clok is pretty dang brag-worthy. (Featuring: Teavee)

Day 8: Peekaboo

The cloud serpent hatching scene is ridiculously adorable, I JUST WANNA SQUSIH THOSE GOLDEN CHEEKS AHH (Featuring: Isolah's ridiculously adorable cloud serpent hatchling <3)

If you’re wondering why I’m specifying which of my toons are featured in the shots: my guildies have been accusing me of favouritism amongst my alts. THESE FALSEHOODS MUST BE DISPELLED.

Ain’t Nobody Got Time For That

So, 5.2 has been crazy!

I’ll admit that I’d hoped for more time before it went live, because I really wanted to clear T14 while it was current. But the new content has been really fun – I love how spooky and dangerous the Isle of Thunder feels, I love the new dailies, I absolutely love the new solo-scenarios. Seriously, the Treasure Trove run is AWESOME, WTB more keys so I can go in there again. And the Stage 2 solo instance that opens up the Dawnseeker Promontory, the Sunreaver Onslaught’s new base, was pretty badass – enough that I was compelled to drag all three of my level 90s through it.

I quite like the new ways of earning rep, too. All my toons own Sunsong Ranch now, and have been getting rep for completing the new faction farm quests – and they only take about 5 minutes to do a day. Dungeons and scenarios take longer obviously – especially when ‘random’ always ends up being ‘Shado-Pan Monastery’ – but I only have to do it once a day (sooo much more preferable to tabard-grinding, imo) and hey, bonus valor! It’s DOUBLY helpful, because running 5.2 dailies + dungeons + scenarios every night on two toons means Isolah, my shaman, hasn’t done many Golden Lotus/Klaxxi dailies since she hit 90.

Having other options has made getting Isolah raid ready on a limited schedule a lot less painful than expected. Her ilvl’s still a little low, because LFD refuses to drop anything but plate/cloth gear and tank trinkets, but at least she’s all set for LFR with Elder Charms on hand.

Really, pretty much the only complaint I have is NOT ENOUGH TIME. There’s so much I want to do! All the new achievements, all the rares, OONDASTA, pet battles. Once Isolah’s ilvl hits 480 I fully intend to DO ALL THE THINGS.

But first – my raid group plans to have our first go at Throne of Thunder tonight. We’ve got a new healer and (I think) DPS, so here’s hoping for steadier progression and boss kills, hurray!

DING! Terrific Trio

In typical me fashion, I managed to epically fudge up the one screenshot I’d been waiting to take all week. The same thing happened when I got first my druid, then my rogue to 90.

Oh well, max level is max level! Now to figure out why my heals are so friggin’ underpowered. LFD heroics are giving me a real heart attack.

Also to celebrate getting Terrific Trio in record time (not really), I joined a Heroic Firelands achievement run, in which I also managed to score possibly the best feral druid weapon to ever exist.

hm firelands FIREKITTEH

Raggy approves of the fire kitty look

I AM ON FIYAHHH.
