Harry and the Northrendersons

This has been a pretty busy weekend as usual. Spent a lot of time this week just doing quests on Freez in Netherstorm and messing with the Beta. In “News”, the PTR has been updated to 3.0.2 for all you who wish to test out the “bridge” patch. Addons will break, there will be mass hysteria (well, maybe only from me). I will hopefully soon have a list and some info on addons that are “working” with WotLK beta that match(ish) what I use for my UI. I know there is a version of ArkInventory for it though. :D

So, Furis/Fizz are up to level 58 now. Still haven’t run BRD yet with them, but not really sure it matters at this point. I was initially expecting it to give me a few levels from all the quests, but they are 58 already anyway. I might run them out to Eastern Plaguelands and get them their last levels there.. We’ll just have to see, I suppose.

WoWScrnShot_091508_003758 The other duo Filly/Fellmara (Shaman/Warlock) are doing pretty well and are sitting at level 20 each now. I got them all caught up. Unfortunately, they each have their “class” quests along the way (Shaman totem quests and Warlock pet quests) which skews the xp amounts for each. I’m still enjoying playing them, but it is definitely a different dynamic than the other two.  Much easier to take on multiple mobs with the Paladin/Mage group than Shaman/Warlock.  Still have the “one of us can rez” thing going though! Woot!

We put in a valiant effort Friday night on the lurker but just couldn’t get him down. It was another series of “unfortunate events” that did us in. We did have an AMAZING amount of DPS considering.  Maybe we should go back into Gruuls and just do that again…

Moon_091408_000535 Ok.. on to a serious topic. If you are here for the rambling “this is what I did” posts, you can turn off your reader now… Still here?  Ok.. Well, I want to talk a little about Wrath of the Lich King. So.. by now, you have hopefully seen that it is coming out November 13 (I guessed the 10th.. I think that was close enough!). My thoughts are mixed right now. This is pertaining to the continuation of raiding and/or attempting progression during these last 2 months until it comes out.

Do we continue pushing to get into those 25man instances? Do we continue the weekly Kara run? Or should we all just hunker down and start farming to get ready for the expansion?  I know I will have a few toons that need to be leveled from 60 sooner or later and that might be a good goal to work towards (getting them to 70 before the expansion hits).  Or should we just keep doing what we are doing with respect to raiding?

Disguise091308_233010 I know there are quite a few folk in the guild who still would like to gear up their mains/alts in Kara runs (for gear or badges).  I know I now have a newly minted 70 that doesn’t have very good gear comparatively and Kara might be a good idea to help get him geared up. What do you guys think? Has your guild changed it’s raiding now that there is a date? I know that some guilds have already given up on raiding for a while but what of ones that haven’t?

Another question I had… What about Honor?  I know that Arena Points will reset when you hit 71, but what about honor? Should I be going out on all my 70s and building up honor points? Ah well.. Anyway, those are the things I am pondering about.. If you have any insight or ideas, let me know!

Are We Having Fhuun Yet?

Last night was a busy night. Busy in a few ways I guess. I felt busy cleaning up the floor with my face, for one. We headed in to do 2nd day Kara figuring “piece of cake”. We had smacked through everything else the night before and we had the same group, why not be just as good?  Well, I’m not sure.  We had issues with the Prince to start with.. He just kept killing the tank. We were running with only 2 healers (Fhuun [my priest] and Karine [resto drood]) but finally swapped out our rogue for his healer so we could get past it.

Lots of stuff went wrong here and there not the least of which was the first try after pulling in the second priest. I got smacked by the axes on phase 3 while I was still enfeebled! Insta-Death. Next one I died on a blast because I was too close. This wasn’t boding well. Finally we took him down .. And headed to Netherspite.. 

WoWScrnShot_091108_181025 Again, not so good experience.  We didn’t have enough “non-squishies” to easily take the red beam, so we subbed in a hunter for 1/2 beam. We also kept forgetting to watch our feet and make sure we weren’t standing in a black hole… :) on our “last” attempt, we finally did it. We had lost many people and I even ended up taking the green beam for the extra healing for the last few seconds.

Illhoof was a blast since we had a paladin AND warlock for the fight which makes it much more “easy mode”. Maiden was also a pushover (somehow) because of the massive DPS we had going. We didn’t attempt Nightbane since it was late by the time we finished Maiden and I also wasn’t sure if we would be able to do it.

WoWScrnShot_091108_190628 Fhuun did get enough badges (by 1) to pick up the Slippers of Dutiful Mending. These things are pretty nice! I also spent a little bit of time in the WotLK Beta. I copied all my addons and settings over (they made me change Fimlys’ name :( ) and worked on figuring out witch worked and which didn’t. I have to say the Death Knight is just cool.. Haven’t played much, but it seems fun so far.  I do like what they have done with some of the icons. Really fleshing them out and making them look a little more “3d” and such (the item icons, etc).

WoWScrnShot_091108_180811 After I was done Beeta-ing.. O_o , I logged in my Paladin/Mage and got them up to level 57! Just a couple more to go and I can switch back to the shaman/warlock group. I need to work harder if I want to get them to 60 before the R-A-F is over for me.

That’s all I’ve got! Sorry for the short posts recently. I’ve just been really busy lately. Tonight is us trying to go back and kill Lurker again this week. Hopefully we will be more successful.

Thank You Sir, May I Have Another?

OMG OMG OMG.. I got one. Uh oh.. Now what do I do? I’m talking Beta key here.. I got one through the normal channels (email from blizz).  I signed up.. I transferred characters.. Now I need to download the client.  So, some day next week I might be able to log in…. (lol).. Anyway. Now I have to figure out how to split my time.. great. great.. Bah. :P 

Ok.. I won’t complain. I’m still pretty excited. :D  Ok.. off I go.. Bye!
