Warp Splinter Cell

Ohh.. The title could be a before and after on Wheel of Fortune! LOL….

 So, last night…. Was a lot of fun.. No Karazhan.  Many guildies wanted a break from the ceaseless hordes of undead Horses and Stablehands. Still haven’t taken down Attumen and his little horse beastie.  However… Since we didn’t do Kara, we got a group together to go run Botanica… The thing I love about Botanica is that there are no required bosses.. There is no place where you cannot move forward without killing a particular boss..  There are 5 bosses in Bot.  The last time I was there, we skipped #2 (Some druid, nature encounter something with annoying spawns) and did the others up until the end one…   One Warp Splinter!  He has been (in my mind previously) a larger than life foe (Literally).  Needless to say… He did NOT go down.

So, this group last night.. We did pretty good.  Normal stuff.  Pretty fun.  No Hunter drops (boo).  We got to Warp Splinter and after  a long discussion on how we wanted to handle him and his healing adds decided on the straight up aprroach.  Our group consisted of a Resto Druid, Warlock, Hunter, Mage and Warrior.  We had the DPS, we were going to Shtank and Shpank.  First approach at doing so was arrested by our Druid getting aggroed by the Adds.. I mean what I wrote.. He was aggroed.. He decided to hit the little beasties with his big stick.. Bad idea.. Down he went quick and we retreated to the hallway to let WS reset.  Second try we decided to do the T&S method again. This time without the healer trying to fight adds.  And…. We blew him away!  It was a beautiful site.  Last time we tried about 15 times… This time, we got him on the second try.

I was impressed. With tears in my eyes, we took a look at the phat lootz… Ugh!!!  nothing for me.. Ah well 🙂 I did get the 1/2 Arc key part that I needed.. I still need to go to Mechanar and get the other.. Maybe tonight if we don’t do Kara.  I think we might pull the same group together and go shpank another set of boss mans….

Oh, after killing warp splinter we went back and killed a couple of the other bosses (#1 and #4 I think) then we called it a night. I think it cost me more in repairs than I ade from the trash and vendorables, but, like I said, I had a great time.

I took a few screenies last night, but none of the down boss.. I’m so bad at this.  Hey, at least I keep posting.  I really need to find time to get back to Frerevacca.  I feel so bad about leaving him sitting there in ghostlands all alone.. I wish I had more time to play and could really concentrate on getting my alts up higher.  I have a preist and a druid that are just below 30 and my horde guys on Earthen Ring which need a LOT of help..

That is all for now.. I’m not sure that anyone who comes here is really reading this crap, but I like writing it.  Hopefully I have some regulars.  Please post comments, I would love to see them..  Say hi, say how crappy you find my writing style, I don’t care.. I just want to know that the couple of “visits” I get a day might be people actually reading what i have to write. 


Warp Burger with Mustard

Spent some time on Saturday leveling up my Cooking skill.  Bought a lot of ingredients (including the ones needed for the Master book quest [I think it was master, don’t remember]), farmed a lot of ingredients (Mostly Turtle Meat from Hinterlands coast) and Ravager Meat, and cooked myself up to lvl 325 or so.  I can now make Warp Burgers!!!!! Woot!  I can also make a whole bunch of other stuff, but that was my main goal.  The 20 Agi isn’t spectacular, but it will do. 

We were unsuccessful in our raid attempt at Kara again on Saturday and i showed up a little late on Sunday so they filled before I got there.  I don’t know if they took down Attumen and Midnight yet though. At the time of my logging out to watch Underworld: Evolution on Blu-Ray (Verrry prettttty) they had not.

I wonder if we should try going a different way and killing something else.  I read through the 2.1 patch notes and other than a few nerfs that seem to be heading most classes way, I am excited with the changes coming. Looks like some more questing areas and additional instances and the new Raid (although we won’t make it there for quite a while…).  I want to push to get my rep up to get the heroic keys. 

I think we are getting close to having almost 20 ppl attuned for kara so maybe we’ll set up two running raids and see how it works..

Anyway, that’s about it for the weekend.  I was a slacker and didn’t update until Monday, of course (what else is new).  I am still bad with screenshots, but I suppose shots of a room of dead ppl with Attumen laughing at us is not especially compelling.

Later all.

Unbox Tivo…

I signed up for the Amazon Unbox service and attached my Tivo Series 2 to it.  You get a free $15 credit when you do this, so I finally tried it out and got 3 shows.. Blue’s Clues!  For my kids.. They like blues clues and they always want new episodes, so I picked 3 ones they have never seen before and ordered them ($0 Woot..). 

We’re watching them while I type this…  Actually they are really good quality. Definitely compared to recording it from my cable connection.  Very clear, pretty much DVD quality as far as I am concerned (not that the kids care). 

I haven’t tried any of the movie rentals or movie purchases (I might try a rental while I still have credit on the system).  I’m not sure I would PAY to get these shows, but it is possible.  The only issue is that they don’t have enough selection that can be downloaded to the Tivo.  As they expand this selection, there might be more draw for me, so we’ll have to see.. However, I have an Xbox360 and can buy their tv shows and such through there.. Of course, my wife and kids don’t know how to get to those, so stuff for them is easiest on the Tivo.
