Pure Madness

I know, I have been an absentee blogger for quite a while.. It’s not that I haven’t been playing WoW. It’s really just that I haven’t been doing anything particularly interesting. Also, while quite a bit of interesting stuff has been going on with MoP beta and information coming out of that, well, I usually don’t talk about that stuff here. That’s what TNB is for, right?

But, I suppose things have been going on, so I might as well give a rundown. We are up to 3/8 Heroic Modes for DS. Yes, that is after the most recent “nerf”. We had been getting Morchok down on heroic for a while though. We just finally got Yor’sahj a couple weeks ago and this last week we downed Ultraxion. So far, none of the Hunter tokens have dropped but I have “high hopes” Smile with tongue out.

We have also gotten almost all of the Achievements in DS. I think my raid group has gotten all but the heroic ones but I still need “Taste the Rainbow”. This last week we finished up Chromatic Champion by getting the “blue pillar” done. Given the nerf and that we were generally running with our core group, it was much easier than we thought it would be.

What else is crazy? TNB is turning 4! That’s right. On May 27, the Twisted Nether Blogcast will be four years old.. I still can’t believe we have been going at this for so long. We just recorded episode 167 this past Saturday and, while we have been doing an “every other week” schedule for a little while, we’re back to weekly for at least the next few. We still love doing the show and I’m hoping to at least get to episode 200! I expect a big uptick in blog activity (from everyone out there and even possibly me) because of the huge number of changes coming in MoP. 

In other gaming news, Diablo 3 releases TONIGHT! I will probably not be up at 3am when it finally unlocks but I’ll be sure to start it installing when I get up in the morning so I can play, possibly, when I get home. I am so excited about D3. Diablo and Diablo 2 were some of my favorite games of all time. I was even playing Diablo 2 when my wife told me we had to leave for the hospital to have my eldest child! If you haven’t seen it already, check out the 2D Short “Wrath”. It’s pretty awesome.

I also finished up Kingdoms of Amalur: The Reckoning last night. I was successful in my goal to finish it up before Diablo 3. I pushed it a bit, understatement, but I did it and I’m happy with my generally “clean” slate for Diablo 3.

I just want to say thank you to all of you out there that somehow still have this blog on your reader or wander in here every once in a while to see if I’ve posted anything. I really appreciate all of your support throughout all these years I’ve been doing this even through the slow times. Hopefully I can once again become more inspired in Mists and go back to posting more than once every 6 months.. Open-mouthed smile

And the Number of the Counting Shall Be 4

I can’t believe that I didn’t blog about this immediately. Well, I can. I guess it’s that kind of thing where when you have a few, what’s one more? I dinged 85 on my Rogue the other night. He’s my fourth toon to max level and I’ll probably never play him again.. Ok Ok.. Not really. But I’d be surprised if I put in the effort to gear him up in any meaningful way (unless MoP is REALLLLLY delayed).  I have to say that with Heirlooms and full rested XP, it was a breeze to get him to 85. I did Uldum until I hit 84 and then meandered over to Twilight Highlands to finish up. I’m pretty sure I wasn’t even 1/2 way through TH when I hit 85. I also used the Love is in the Air dailies to boost my XP making ability. Quests at level 84 gave me 69k XP each. Not too shabby. Next up is my Mage. I’m not sure how quickly he’ll be moving but he’s at level 81 in Hyjal right now. We’ll see how it goes.

What else has been going on? Well, we got Madness down again this week (after having issues with people falling into the water between the islands.. booooo) and both Hunter pieces of loot dropped.. I already had the bow so unfortunately that got disenchanted but Kiril, Fury of Beasts also dropped. It has a very interesting Proc

Your melee and ranged attacks have a chance to trigger Fury of the Beast, granting 107 Agility and 10% increased size every 1 sec. This effect stacks a maximum of 10 times and lasts 20 sec

Madness_022112_212621So, the +107 x 10 agility (1,070) is pretty freaking awesome. On top of that, I slowly grow to double my normal size, which is really amusing. With that proc especially, it’s a pretty nice upgrade. I also hit 398 equipped item level, which is pretty sweet. I have a PvP necklace that would put me on 399 but, of course, I don’t wear that to raid.

I’ve also been playing the AH a little. Well, “playing” is probably the wrong word. I’ve been putting stuff up for sale. No idea if I’m “working the system” correctly, but stuff is selling and I think I’m making some money… I suppose we’ll see if it works out in the long run. I just don’t have the patience I think.

A Sixth of…

Rades Tagged me.. Thankfully, he also tweeted that he tagged me. Well, actually, he didn’t but then he tweeted that he had forgotten to tweet that he had tagged me… Which is way too convoluted. So anyway.. Gnomageddon (re)started the Sixth Screenshot Meme. Here is the info:

Go into your screenshots folder, go into the sixth sub-folder and find the sixth image, then post it! And then you tag six more people.

Now, I don’t subdiretorize my screenshots (yes, that’s a word. well, it is now). So, I did what someone else did and went 6×6 in my folder.. The image above is presented without editing (usually I brighten the images before posting..). It’s Lord Rhyolyth, of course.. This screenshot was taken on July 13, 2011 at 10:07 pm.. So, this is normal mode and we were getting ready to pull (probably AGAIN for the Nth time).

So, there you go.. I’m going to fail at one part of the meme though and not tag anyone.. Well, except for Hydra.. Smile And since she is teaching me to be almost evil like her, I tag her 6 times! MUAHAHAHAHAHAHAH! *cough*.. I really don’t know what that means but it sounded really evil before I typed it.. Good luck all and enjoy the meme.

(on a side note, my Rogue hit 85 this weekend.. I might or might not write a separate post about it..)
