I had no problems logging in last night after the patch. I didn’t really have any problems with my addons (which I knew since I was in the PTR and had tested them).. I even got in (solo) to Heroic FoS, somehow, but didn’t run it. We tried to get into the ICC raid and, of course, failed miserably because it “couldn’t find the instance server”. So, we decided to try out the Weekly raid, which happened to be Naxx. Ok. Head over to Naxx.. Zone in.. Oh wait.. Same problem as ICC.. Boo.. Keep banging our heads against the portal until we were broken and bloodied. Then, I logged out. Had enough. Time to do something else for a bit.
On a side note, I did put together my new rig and it is just as awesome as I hoped it would be. I’ll try to get some additional pictures and a post up here (and polygamerous and gamers studio network too) when I get a chance.. Also, hopefully we get into the raid tonight and I can post some impressions and mini-strats ..
Be excellent to each other.
Not all that much going on in the WoW front (other than my paladin dinging 79 a few days ago). Waiting for 3.3, which is supposed (unofficially) to come out next Tuesday.. But, that’s not what this post is about.. This post is about my new computer.. Well, new computer to be. You see, for the holidays I ordered myself the parts to make a semi-decent rig. Nothing “SPECTACULAR”, but pretty good all the same. Definitely an upgrade over what I have already…
I’ll give you a rundown of the parts.. They are supposed to arrive today and then i get to put it together tonight! Woot!
So there it is.. With all the links to newegg intact.. I hope.. 🙂
Of course, the MB has onboard sound, but I will probably move over the Soundblaster X-Fi I have to it also. Anyway, I am really looking forward to seeing what this puppy can do compared to my current system. Hopefully everything will work without too much issue. Sorry if you have absolutely no idea what all this is.. I’m a geek, I admit it.. This crap is fun to me .. 🙂 Later folks!
Before I get into what we did on the PTR Monday night, I just want to say that I got my whole outfit for Pilgrim’s Bounty. Actually, it really isn’t hard. You just have to do 3 dailies and you get the Hat, Boots and one of the chest pieces.. Just remember you don’t need all of them AND they can’t be mailed… So..
Monday I logged into the PTR and was joined by Lissanna of Restokin and Daewin of The Hunting Lodge Podcast. Liss was a Rest druid (at least on the PTR she was) and Dae, of course, was a hunter. I was logged in with Fimlys, so I was a hunter also. We waited around for some more peeps to show up, but were out of luck. We decided to try to put ourselves on the new LFG for the new instance (Forge of Souls I think) but got no hits (we joined as a group). We then decided to try out the Random Dungeon interface and put ourselves up there. After a few minutes we were joined by a Bear Druid and a Shaman ( elemental I think ). We were ported directly to Utgard Keep and proceeded to wipe the place clean. During the run, we tried out the DE selection on the Need/Greed/etc. roll thing and it worked flawlessly.
So, we cleared the place and stepped out of the instance.. And we were back where we all started. I think that is going to be very awesome and beneficial for those “I just want to go run SOMETHING” nights. So anyway, I am a big fan of the interface for that and the ability it gives you. We got our 2 Emblems of Frost but I don’t think any of us got any additional rewards from doing the Random instance.
Continuing raiding, etc. on Draenor. We’ve been having issues, at least last night we did, with Faction Champs on ToGC 10. We got a really bad combination and just can’t get it down. I’m sure we’ll try again this week. I think tonight is Heroic 25 man.. We’ll see how far we get in that too..
