Flexing Funtimes

So, I’ve just managed to clear the first two parts of Flex SoO!

And BOY, was it fun. 😀

I did the first bit last night with some folks from my current raid group, and a bunch of battletag friends. It was a pretty mixed group but Vent was lively, and we all went in knowing it was a casual sorta run but planning to kill bosses anyway. Immerseus and the Fallen Protectors went down fairly alright, but we spent quite a number of attempts on both Norushen and Sha of Pride. Because we’d invited mostly lesser-geared folk, DPS was a little on the low side, so we ended up hitting enrage a lot; people weren’t too quick on following the mechanics. Still, we got everything down in the end so yay! I went Resto for most of it too, because we didn’t have enough healers. DAAAAAMN, perma-Efflorescence is ridiculously powerful. I LOVE IT 😀

Then earlier this evening an ex-raid teammate whispered me asking if I could heal for their Flex raid. They were doing both first and second parts, so I figured why not? I dragged Teavee in for the first and proceeded to have her tiny green butt kicked by their Disc priest (it was seriously awe-inspiring, lemme tell you). We were done in half an hour, so I hopped back on Xerna for Gates of Retribution.

Honestly, I didn’t know much about the fights AT ALL. I hadn’t done LFR yet, and we haven’t gotten that far on Normal – so what I knew was basically from the SoO healing guides over at Healiocentric. (Thank goodness I had them, too.)

I think Galakras is my favourite fight, partly because Lor’themar and Sylvanas, holy cow! Iron Juggernaut and Dark Shaman had so. much. crap. flying around that it was hard to appreciate anything, and killing Nazgrim just makes me sad. I may or may not change my mind after doing them as feral in normal mode, we’ll see.

It’s great to have finished off the first eight bosses on Flex; the experience will help when we start working on the later bosses in Normal. And it was nice to heal again, even if the Disc priest was miiiiiles ahead of me! I think I did fairly well myself, and I adore seeing my green efflo-circle 😀 Not a single piece of loot dropped, sadly, but eh, c’est la vie.

Besides, achievements!

Yaaay!

WoW Screenshot a Day Challenge – September 23

Today’s prompt: From my childhood

Reminds me of the pillow forts I used to make as a kid! Only this one has its own bath. Fancy.

WoW Screenshot a Day Challenge – September 6-14

Apologies on the (unfortunately, usual) tardiness! It seems as though my crazy bit of leveling-nonstop-to-get-hordebreaker effort ended up with an unintended and painful side effect: my right hand has decided to go on strike and twinge sharply in protest every time I try to do anything with it. Like hold a fork. Or a mouse. So! I’ve gone on a bit of a break the last several days in an attempt to appease it; the pain has diminished sufficiently that I can play again, provided I take breaks regularly.

Lesson to learn here, kids: they aren’t kidding when they say nonstop gaming is bad for you. But generally people already know that.

…Moving on. Here’s the past week’s worth of screenshots! Ignore the fact that some of them are post-5.4 despite the date of the prompt being earlier, heh 😀

Day 6: Getting read

Getting read = stories. Stories = Lorewalker Cho, always.

Day 7: White

Day 8: Made by me

Day 9: On the wall

Okay this is technically from today's raid, but I liked it too much to not use it for the prompt. It's my raid team, we're on the wall - good enough! :P

Day 10: Sweet

Cutscene when you hit Exalted with the Order of the Cloud Serpent! I think it's sweet :D

Day 11: What you did today

Joined the rest of the world in exploring the Timeless Isle! We're waiting to kill the Pirate Ship here.

Day 12: Shadow

Xerna, Wrathion, even the gong have shadows... but the Celestials don't. Weird?

Day 13: Unexpected

I just found the idea of Wrathion saying "loot" hilariously unexpected.

Have Thrall and co., all in a straight line! Along with Teavee, back when she was a tiny priest about to leave the Goblin starting zone.

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.

WoW Screenshot a Day Challenge – Days 18 & 19

In my excitement over getting the Lei Shen kill yesterday, I completely forgot about posting the screenshot! Whoops. So here’s days 18 and 19 together!

Day 18: Someone you spoke to today.

Monkey see, monkey do! (Featuring: Teavee + guildies)

Monkey see, monkey do! (Featuring: Teavee + friends)

There are five of us altogether that I always talk to pretty much everyday, but one’s currently on holiday and the other was asleep (I think) so they don’t get featured. Here we are, exploring Unga Ingoo – there are ziplines! Who knew? – and monkeying (HA, geddit?!) around. This is pretty much us all the time, in any instance – Firelands, BWD, Naxx, THAT HIGH SEAS SCENARIO WITH ALL THE CANNONS OMG.

Day 19: Lost

Something's missing...

Something’s missing…

I have a hoarding habit. There’s SO MUCH STUFF in my bags that it takes ages to find anything: “I lost so-and-so item!” is a common complaint from me. Is it in my inventory, or my bank, or my GUILD bank tab, or my void storage (latter two not pictured)? Did I send it over to an alt just to keep in the mail temporarily? Did I – oh no dear gods please no – ACCIDENTALLY SELL IT?!

That last one is my greatest nightmare.

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

Because being a quest giver and meeting Johnny Awesome was pretty much the best thing. (Featuring: Myriade + Johnny AWESOME)

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.
