Moving on

January 28, 2010

Yesterday I left my guild. I’ve been with them for nearly a year and consider many of the member good friends, and as much as I do care about them once progression started going backwards I really had to consider moving on. In the end I’m spending time and money on this game and I want to see as much content as possible.

So I packed my suitcase,  applied to a guild on a different server, and got accepted for a trial. In the process of transferring my main over now, and hoping this turns out to be the right place for me :)

Back in my day…

January 24, 2010

So I’m doing the Netherwing-quests on my Death Knight, and decided to give the Dragonmaw Race a shot to bump up my rep a bit. I remember doing them on my main when they first were released, and they were absolutely awful back then. Well, not so much anymore. Getting hit won’t knock you off your mount and send you to a horrible death, so now the only real obstacle is keeping up with the racers. Free rep for everyone!

Got my mind on my money

January 22, 2010

Leveling¬† and gearing my first horde character after playing alliance only for almost 4 years have been quite an interesting experience. First note to self: those who are my enemies on alliance side aren’t necessarily my friends on horde ;p Further, I realized that leveling a Death Knight in an unfamiliar faction can be a pain because A) I’d get lost in the major cities a lot and B) By skipping 55 levels I was completely broke when I hit Outland.

So I decided to get herbalism and mining simply to get a decent income with minimal investment, and I guess it’s working out Ok. I’m currently saving up for my epic flying, which is a bit of a catch-22; everyone will swoop in and ninja my nodes in Northrend because it takes me forever to get there, but I can’t fly any faster unless I find more herbs and ores to sell. So I’ve had to go back to the lower level areas and get my nodes there, which actually isn’t too bad. 70 gold for a stack of Mithril is definitely decent pay.

I’m hoping to get my epic flyer over the weekend, and after that my first stop will be Shadowmoon Valley. Must have Netherdrake! :D

The Crimson Hall

January 21, 2010

A new wing in ICC opened this week, with two new encounters: The Blood Princes and Blood Queen Lana’thel. Unfortunately my guild is still stuck at Rotface, so we’ve decided to take a step back and do some more ToC 25 for upgrades. While it is disappointing to not get to see the new content, I’m sure people understand that we’re not quite ready for it yet.

In other news, I’ve been running heroic Forge of Souls daily on my druid for the Needle-Encrusted Scorpion, and so far I’ve seen it drop once. And yes, I lost the roll ;p Oh well, there’s always tomorrow ;)

Saw this little gem in trade today, still wondering…

Boned!

January 14, 2010

Last night was another ICC 10 for us, and we got through the Lower Spire fairly easily. We even got an achievement from Marrowgar :) In the Plagueworks we unfortunately didn’t get past Festergut due to low dps, but at least we got some practise on the fight :)

Back in business

January 12, 2010

After a slow weekend we finally had enough people online for a 25-man last night, so we decided to go clear ToC 25 for the first time. A lot of our guildies took a break about the time ToC was released, so we sadly never got past Jaraxxus back then. But now it seems we are on the way to doing regular 25’s again, which is really nice :)

Afterwards we decided it was time to pay Marrowgar another visit, and we actually managed to down him fairly easily this time. Hooray :) We got a couple of nice tries on Lady Deathwhisper as well, I’m sure we’ll get her next time ;)
