Never seen this :(

Logged in (or at least attempted to) and have been waiting 8 mins already.  Time is limited this week due to military stuff...GIMME MAH WOW...NAU!

Better late than never!

Got this two weeks ago but decided to share.  I solo'ed many of these but there were a few I just could not.  Big thanks to Eyesoffury and Mikdundee for the help!

1200 for a Dark Iron Helm

Who says old world blacksmithing can't be profitable?  Had to run through BRD for about 30 mins to get more dark iron, smelt it, and forge the helm but well worth it!

What is it with poop?

Only thing Blizz loves more than horde is poop!

Like I am gonna go anyway...

Blizzcon 2012 cancelled...read!

I'll probably be too addicted to Diablo III to care...

As usual...no loot

All 4 bosses, no loot...go figure!

WTF Moment

Ever have someone say something so funny you just have to laugh and ask them WTF?

Think the screenshot says it all!

5 mans in 5 seconds or less

Another shameless theft here, but since it is my site, it's easy for me to find later on.

Excellent stuff:

End Time
Echo of Sylvanas Stay out of purple stuff on the ground. When phase 2 comes, kill the ghoul everyone's DPSing and then run over its corpse and away from Sylvanas.

Echo of Tyrande Interrupt Stardust and blow your cooldowns at 30%. If you're ranged, don't get close to her, and if she turns to face you, move away.

Echo of Jaina Avoid big white blades that pop out of the ground. If you see a fire ember on the ground, stand IN it to keep it from damaging the whole group.

Echo of Baine Throw his totems back at him. If he stomps an island that you're on, swim to a new one quickly.

Murozond Stay out of big golden circles, stay out from in front of him, stay away from behind him, and pop your cooldowns whenever time resets.

Well of Eternity
Peroth'arn Stay out of green stuff on the ground, and don't let the eyes get close to you when you're stealthed.

Queen Azshara Kill the puppet strings on Mind-Controlled players as quickly as possible, and avoid bad stuff on the ground. You HAVE to interrupt Azshara's Total Obedience ability.

Captain Varo'then and Mannoroth Stay out of bad stuff, focus on Mannoroth once Varo'then's dead, and keep adds off your healer and Tyrande.

Hour of Twilight
Arcurion Interrupt Hand of Frost, kill Ice Tombs, and stay out of bad.

Asira Dawnslayer Stay out of Smoke Bomb and on top of the light circles left by Thrall's totems. If you're a caster or healer, try to keep the tank or Thrall standing between yourself and Asira.

Archbishop Benedictus Spread out, dispel Righteous Shear/Twilight Shear, interrupt Smite/Twilight Blast, and stay out of waves.

Love is in the Air!

Well, my most hated achievement starts in about two weeks.  I guess I will have to get off my ass and actually do some work on it.  I don't have this completed on any of my toons, just bits and pieces here and there:

Can't get it in both places but I will work on a guide of a sort to help others out.  Warrior will be done first!

Ring Giveaway at Red Cow Rise

Red Cow Rise is giving away a free ring!

You can read about it here.  Pretty sweet and she might send you some Japanese snacks!

I'd take it and probably trade her something in return, like some brownie mix or Korean snacks...


Dragon Soul Raid Nerfed Next Month!

Straight from us.battle.net:

During the scheduled server maintenance on the week of January 31, the Dragon Soul raid will become enveloped by the Power of the Aspects spell, reducing the health and damage dealt of all enemies in the raid by 5%. This spell will grow progressively stronger over time to reduce the difficulty and make the encounters more accessible. The spell will affect both normal and Heroic difficulties, but it will not affect the Looking for Raid difficulty.

The spell can also be disabled by talking to Lord Afrasastrasz at the beginning of Dragon Soul, if a raid wishes to attempt the encounters without the aid of the Dragon Aspects. For those of you who raided in Firelands and/or Icecrown you're no doubt aware that as time goes on we want to keep people progressing by adjusting the difficulty. For any number of reasons a group may be having difficulty on a specific encounter each week, and our intent in adjusting the content is to ensure the ability to keep progressing, enjoying the content, and gearing up. With Icecrown we progressively buffed the players, and while this slow progression (and ability to opt-out of the buff) were both beneficial, it led to an expectation of your characters power, and once you left the raid you could certainly feel less effective. For Firelands we attempted to fix that by nerfing the content instead of buffing players, but we nerfed the content difficulty all at one time, which was counterproductive for players who really didn't need as severe a change as we made. With Dragon Soul we're attempting to do the best of both by having a progressive nerf to the content, keeping player power constant while providing small increases in assistance over a long period of time, as well as allowing players to opt-out of the assistance by speaking to Lord Afrasastrasz. We hope you continue to enjoy Dragon Soul, and that these changes encourage you to attempt a higher difficulty, or just keep pushing to down that next boss.

Looks like I might try reg DS late this year!

Lunar Achievement Cheatsheet

I did alot of elders this year, enough to get me the Elder title on 10 toons.   I always started with Eastern Kingdoms first and hit some of the Cataclym ones at the same time.

While I did not start in Booty Bay, I'd fly south and go to Blasted Lands on the way back.  Fairly simple at times.  I have a 2nd account so I could position toons in certain places to speed up stuff.  I would also hit Sunken Temple, Blackrock Depths, and Lower Blackrock Spire on the way up.  Note, getting the elder in Searing Gorge after LBRS but before BRD makes sense because you can hearth out and fly to Ironforge!

Cape of Stranglethorn 40 72.5 Elder Winterhoof
Northern Stranglethorn 71 34.3 Elder Starglade
Blasted Lands 54.2 49.4 Elder Bellowrage
Swamp of Sorrows 69.1 56.7 Sunken Temple

Burning Steppes 53.6 24.5 Elder Dawnstrider
Burning Steppes 21.1 37.3 Blackrock Mountain
Westfall 56.6 47.1 Elder Skychaser
Elwynn Forest 39.8 63.7 Elder Stormbrow
Elwynn Forest 34 50 Elder Hammershout
Searing Gorge 21.3 78.1 Elder Ironband
Dun Morogh 53.9 49.9 Elder Goldwell

Lunar Festival

Like I said, I've been quite busy getting these achieves done.  50% completed, more like at 80% with just a few tidbits here and there to go.

Screenies for your viewing pleasure!

LFR Dragon Soul

Not a bad thing I say, it allows you to learn the basics of the fights.  I actually did this on my rogue and shammy although my shammy DPS is a little low...friend said I was doing 12k.  I didn't have recount on to see but will do so next time.

Threaten my guild?

It's a pvp server last time I checked, so while flying around Northrend I decided to gank a 76 druid.

Next thing you know I got a PM from a level 1 named Sillysilly, attempted to ask "a priest question" since I was on Cresselia.

 So sure, ask away, I am always willing to help new people!

 Um...I thought this was a priest question, not a pvp question.  But seeing how this is a PVP server, I think I pretty much summed it up.  I even left the word "bitch" off my response!

 So...a threat?  Our whole guild is about to find out?  I am really scared now.  Bring it!

Here he is dead...too bad he was AFK so we could not enjoy the QQ fest that would have errupted.

More later as I plan on killing him multiple times!

Busy with RL

Had time to play but not to update...

Busy now with Lunar Festival and getting achieve on all 10 toons.

5/10 so far!
