I’ve been busy, but not necessarily in WoW. I have done a bunch of stuff, but my free time tends to be spent on a few other games right now including: Lord of Ultima (although technically I can, and do, play this WHILE playing WoW), Babo Invasion f/ Madballs, Star Wars: The Force Unleashed, Zombie Driver, and others.. You see, I’m a little Polygamerous (no surprise there, eh?).
I HAVE been playing WoW though. I spent some time (and a bunch of money) finally building my Engineer his Roflcopter.. Some of the mats have gotten expensive due to low supply. To make up for it, I sold a Mithril Dragonling trinket for 1k gold (woot!). I’ve still been raiding. Actually, raiding quite a bit. Generally the days I don’t raid/login to wow necessarily are: Monday (for polygamerous), Friday (for TNB) and Saturday (for doing stuff other than WoW).
Our 10-man, at least until we hit 15% buff is running around with a few alts now of some of the main raiders. Thankfully these are ICC-ready alts and haven’t caused too much trouble. Of course, we aren’t doing as well as we were with their mains, but I think that might just be having them learn a different side of the fight. The 25-man is progressing pretty well. We’re still having issues with the “main” bosses Putricide and Blood Queen and we haven’t even tried Sindragosa yet. We DID get Valithria Dreamwalker down (well, um.. UP?) in 25 mode though. We’re moving a bit more slowly in that we have different people each week and sometimes even have to explain fights. It’s still fun though and I’m still, slowly, getting gear upgrades still too.
That’s about it, I hope to be posting more often here, but, to be honest, not much is going on that is worth posting about. I could say the same thing each day/week.. We got this down.. We got this down.. But, unfortunately, I’m not sure you want to read that any more than I want to write it (or have time to write it ).. I think the community is kinda in the waiting phase right now. I suppose I could try to write something up on my take on some of the Cataclysm changes, but I did that, a bit, on TNB. Well, have a good one!
Well, not really, but I liked the title. 10 meaning.. 10% buff in ICC now.. The 10% buff has been helping, I’ll give you that. In our 25 man this week we got all but Putricide, Blood Queen, Sindragosa, and the LK. We did pretty well on Putricide and BQ when we gave them a shot too. I think we might even get one down next week hopefully.
However, in the 10-man we’re still getting to the LK but not getting him down. We’ve made it to the 2nd transition a couple of times but not been able to “seal the deal”. We’ve been extending the lockout and just hitting on the big boy himself now for a couple weeks. No luck. I’m hoping we get him down while the 10% is still in effect, but it might take the 15% to do it .. Well, that and new gear we’re picking up in the 25s.. Of course, I bring a different toon to each.. (DOH!)
So anyway, I was away for a week on a tropical island, sipping Margarita’s and watching the waves.. I would say that’s why I didn’t put up a post, but, really, I’d have been surprised if I had done so anyway. Too much to do, too little time. I DO have to say that I’m pretty excited over all the reveals about Cataclysm stuff.. Leads me to believe the Beta is even closer. I know everyone will have their things within the class changes, etc. that they don’t particularly like, but that happens on pretty much every change.
One thing I think we gain by the larger changes they make is somewhat of a feeling of playing a “new” game. Lots of people out there talk about burnout and such. Expansions, with their radical changes (and of course, new content) help people who have left or just gotten bored to get back into the swing of things. I have not yet found a change they are making that makes me upset, it’s just something different now and either we will like it or get used to it, or stop playing that class, etc.. I would be more put-out if they didn’t make any changes like these and just rested on their laurels and such.
All in all, I find it all (ok, that’s a lot of alls) very, very, very exciting!
Ok.. I’ve finally given in and since Blizzard finally opened up the third faction, I transferred over there this morning.. That’s right! Fimlys the mighty and powerful Night Elf Hunter… Is now..
Yes.. I’ve gone Tuskaar.. The odd thing is that EVERYONE seems to have had the same idea today.. Wierd…
