I had a nice weekend playing. If you read my comments sections at all (and you really should) you would have seen that I was going to be raiding on Millea with Slopoke’s guild. To make sure all was good to go (since they start raiding shortly after I get home from work) I logged into Millea on Thursday night.
I facepalmed so bad when I looked at her.
Yes it was that bad.
She hasn’t raided since Ulduar. The highest gear she has is from the new ICC 5 mans. She is in 2 piece T8 and 2 piece T9. Both her trinkets and her off hand are ilvl 200. Her gems were bad. In fact, she didn’t even have her meta active.
I wanted to go through and fix all of her gems but then I stopped myself and thought about it for a moment. She wont be keeping this stuff for very long (assuming she raids with Slo more) and will be upgrading.
Of course this assumes that something other than enhancement shammy gear and plate drops from every fucking boss in ICC. >.>
Slo wasn’t kidding when she said that she makes it drop. One cloth piece dropped the entire night. ONE! Luckily the pug priest we brought in didn’t roll on it. He was a good pug. He didn’t try to take off spec while he was healing.
Dooms finally got the staff he wanted. Apparently it has been a running joke with them that Abracadaver doesn’t exist. As a result, they run with it reserved for him on the off chance that it will drop. I told Slo that it would drop because I was there (and thus could use it). What happened? It dropped of course. :)
So grats again to Dooms! :D
I got my friendly ring from the Ashen Verdict. That was a HUGE upgrade from the ring from ToC 5 >.< that I was wearing. I mean HUGE. I had the triumph badge ring on my other finger slot so when the ring dropped off BP it wasn’t that huge of an upgrade and I didn’t have a problem letting Dooms have it.
I had a ton of fun with Slo and the gang. If they will have me back I think I shall be running with them again on Friday.
I really don’t know how much time I will be spending on Bloodhoof, but man oh man I am feeling the loss of the stuff I sent over with Tattia when I transferred her. I sent her with my stockpile of gems, cloth, honor, flasks, fish, etc. I still have fail mage over there so I can go farm herbs and make flasks, but it is just going to take a bit to get back up to where I was. I just need to designate a day where I farm herbs. Maybe on Tuesday. Everyone will be raiding so it should be fairly quiet around the nodes.
It was kind of funny when I was trying to buy stuff for Millea’s raiding. Drak’Tharon is a low pop server and has a weak AH. Bloodhoof is one of the original servers, has a high pop and the market almost always has what you need, at a fairly cheap price. Cheap flasks on DT are around the 20g range, usually closer to 25g. On BH I got my flasks for 16-17g. My gems were about 50g cheaper on BH too. Of course we all know that Zug controls the gem markets on DT.
Speaking of Zug. Last night I was on Lyssi farming in WG when I see him talking to me in gchat. He started talking about racing in Ulduar. Said that we needed to race on the racetrack before Mimron. Dodging the bombs etc. Said that we should do it as a guild. He even set up something on the calendar. I was laughing so hard. It was so completely random and so totally Zug. I <3 you Zug, I really do. :)
I had forgotten how much fun it is to go into the “Goddess of Death” mode with Lyssi. I was running around killing litterally EVERYTHING in my path. It is a real ego booster let me tell you. I ran over and decided to do the Ebon Blade dailies to get some cash (since I have been sending so much to alts and not playing my main) and I went onto the Savage Ledge. Nothing is as much fun as killing all of those Vykrul guys until the entire ledge is empty and I have to run around and loot everything before they re-spawn.
SO MUCH FUN! ^_^
I spent some quality time on Saturday with the roguelette. She is now 1 1/2 bars away from 37. I got her engineering up so now she can make the 2 pets. I made a few of each and tried selling them on the AH. When I put up one of each, there weren’t any on the AH. They sold almost immediately. When I went to put up another set there were like 10 of each up there. So I held back and will try again either tonight or tomorrow. Made a nice chunck of change for the roguelette. She won’t need to come crying to Lyssi and Tattia for gold any time soon.
Slice and I also worked on the caster duo on Sunday. We got up to 23 I think. He still isn’t feeling the ranged caster dps, but he sure loves to AoE. I can’t wait to see his reaction once he gets Seed of Corruption at 70. Now THAT is fun AoE.
I have another project that I am working on. It has me all excited again. Once everything is finalized I will annouce it on the blog. Until then it will remain a secret project. :D
No Tel it is not another alt. :-p
I think I might even try to set up a 10 man ICC for some point this week. See if I can still raid lead. Any takers? :)
