You know, when I actually get off my duff and have something to say.
Not much has been going on in game for me. I hurt my back about 2 weeks ago and haven’t been playing much as a consequence.
We seem to be doing pretty good raid roster wise. Adoe from Crits brought over one of his hunters and Angerfork brought over his warrior. Now that Zarm is out of school (he done gadgiated) we have been able to raid each night. We even managed to go in and knock out Heroic ICC. I believe that the achievement run is scheduled for this upcoming Sunday.
Tonight is Nef. The punk ass is going down. He will of course drop the Pally/Priest/Lock token that will go to one of our 2 pally tanks or our priest healer. I will not see my 4 piece set until 3 other people have theirs. That means we have to kill him the minimum of 3 times and my token piece will need to drop each time! So yeah, I’m never going to see my 4 piece.
WoW Insider just posted the announcement that Arena Season 9 is ending by the 21st with Season 10 starting a week later. So it looks like patch 4.2 should be here on the 28th. Slice has said that he wants to go back to the tier bosses even after 4.2 hits just to get people their tokens; especially if T12 is as tough as it is looking to be.
Personally I don’t care. I just want my staff!
This is the week where we should finish T11 content. All we have is Nef and Al’Akir. The current plan is to kill Nef tonight and Al’Akir tomorrow. I haven’t looked at the sign ups for tomorrow, but I do know that tonight we have 11 people ready to go. So that much is positive!
I was checking out the Al’Akir fight and it honestly doesn’t look that bad. Yeah bad RNG is bad, but shit happens and you deal with it. The explanation I read likened the tornadoes to Sarth’s fire walls. I was pretty good on the firewalls. The knock back and quick run in sounds like an ideal situation to use teleport.
Yeah I am getting excited over the thought of a new fight! ^_^b
I am hoping that we knock out Nef fairly quickly (who am I kidding, it will be the last pull of the night) so that we can get some attempts on Al’Akir. That way we can work on some heroic modes in BoT.
Since my normal market has been flooded (seriously! people who were _never_ in it before are suddenly in it) I have had to branch out and make money some other way. What I find funny about my bag market is it is absolutely flooded with people when the prices are lower than the price of cloth. When we kept the prices high there were only 3-5 of us and we really didn’t undercut each other all that much. It was all just a matter of who had more stock and back stock of cloth. Now I make more profit buying cheap cloth and re-listing it. Like I said, cloth is going for more than bags. I’m still selling bags, just not the volume I was before. Makes me mad. Especially since I spent about 10k gold on gear for my other toons. Luckily I found another little market that no one seemed to be filling. At least for a few days. /sigh. People are already trying to butt their way into it. I’m not making a ton of gold, but a decent chunk. Add that to my weekly sale of illusionary bags (seriously over 5k for each one, delicious) I’m not looking too badly.
I can only imagine how much the Primordial Saronite-type items are going to cost. Slice said he is going to give me 20k for my staff. I have 20k saved up for that purpose. Zarm has also offered to help out when I need it too. Just going to be expensive as hell. ugh. I am still so excited though!
In other news: Since I haven’t been able to stay seated for very long at my computer desk I have been playing some FF12. I hooked up a chair with a bunch of pillows for support and have been having a blast. I never played 12 before. I got it a few months ago at the suggestion of Andrew. When I first tried playing it I had a hell of a time with the controls. I had gotten so used to having a mouse and keyboard it was very odd going back to a controller. I finally got it all sorted out and been enjoying something new. I doubt I will be getting back too much into the console world, but it sure is nice to come back for a visit every now and then.
I have been trying to figure out what I want to do with my rogue. Mostly I have been trying to figure out if I want to learn to actually play her and not just mash the same 3 buttons over and over again. I really don’t like melee dps and the energy resource isn’t really all that great (compared to mana IMO). I had briefly toyed with the idea of PvPing with her. I mean it is still an option. Half of her gear is the crafted PvP stuff so she has some resil. Considering how much I fail at PvP this might not be a good enough thing. Oh well, we’ll see what I can come up with. Right now she farms and does TB dailies. Escaping from people trying to gank me makes me happy. ^_^
Well the work day is just about gone and I need to head home to kill Nef. Wish me luck guys!
