Ok.. Instead of detailing what I did in the game last night (malygos and it sucked big time), I’m putting out a request for comments (RFC). What I’d like to know is..
Why do you read my blog? Do you read each post completely? Do you read via reader or directly on the site? Are there any things specifically that you like? Don’t like? Can you think of any more questions I didn’t ask but you have answers for? Are you sitting down? Do you ride the bus or bring your lunch?
I’m just on a kick to try to make this blog better.. However, if you all are happy with the way things are, I don’t want to bork it for you. Let me know. If you don’t want to leave a comment for everyone to see, use the contact form. Let me hear your voices, well, um, read your writing..??
Thanks in advance everyone! Oh! And go listen to Twisted Nether EP 31.
No, I’m not talking about any artifacts in WoW… I’m talking about visual artifacts on my screen.. Seems that my video card is deciding I need a bunch of red dots all over my screen and that I need it to show errors about my drivers and other stuff and, well, basically not let me use my desktop computer anymore. At least, I’m hoping it is just the video card.
So.. Last night we were supposed to do 25 naxx.. I logged in with my laptop at around the right time (after messing with my desktop for almost an hour and then just copying my WTF and Addon folder over to the laptop) but there were not enough of us (not even 19!) to make a try for the second boss in the spider wing.
So, instead, a 10 man was started up and we swept through the Spider wing pretty quickly and then went into the plague wing. We got through the dancing boss (“the Unclean”) and what shoud drop? That’s right, Tunic of the Lost Pack! My chestpiece!! Woot! I was the only hunter there (no Shaman either) and so I picked up my lootz and did a happydance. We stopped there for the night and then I spent another 2 hours messing with my computer.. BAH!
I ordered a new video card today from Newegg and I should be getting it tomorrow.. Of course, that means I will be using my laptop again tonight. It was okay, I hooked up my keyboard and regular mouse to it and put it on my 24” screen .. I might just keep it on the laptop screen tonight.. Or.. maybe I should play out in the living room on the 56”… Hmm….
Yes! It’s true.. The rumors are all true.. I’ve.. got 2 level 80s! Fyra dinged 80 this last weekend. I spent the ton of gold for her level 80 skills and we did a bunch of instances. I think she only needs Utgarde Pinnacle and CoS to get all the non-heroic instances done at least once. Oculus was definitely interesting.. I think if we knew what we were doing we could have done it much faster.. Got the final boss down on the third try when we finally split up the DPS duties..
Additionally, this last weekend we DID indeed start the heroic raiding.. We went into OS with, at the final boss 19 people.. Whoa you say! “19 people, Fim!”.. Yep.. and we got him down too. Got the achievement for doing it with less than 21 also.. Didn’t have time to head into Naxx though at that point.
Yesterday we went back into OS heroic after the patch (I’ll talk about that later) and finished it again.. This time with a few more people (I think we had 21) and it seemed easier.. We DID have time to head into Naxx though (We one-shot the OS boss) and we got the first Spider Wing boss down after a few wipes.
Ok.. back to the 3.0.8 patch.. Yes, it rolled out yesterday. Yes, I respecced Fim. Yes, I was nerfed, but I have to say that I wasn’t doing any worse than the other DPS when I could use all my tricks. In the boss in OS, my pet dies so quickly that I just keep him by myself. This gimps me quite a bit. Of course, the MM hunter that was with us did about the same damage if not less even though he didn’t use his pet either. Eh, we’ll just have to see over time. This was also in the 25s with full buffs. In 10s it might suffer more. I do like getting to use Arcane Shot much more. I pop it every time it comes up and it seems to do a decent amount of damage ( I put points in Improved Arcane Shot in the MM tree.. ).
Also, last night, while we were dealing with the constant Northrend Server restarts, I got Fhuun to 75 (thus the “Half” part) and went and got HIS new spells, etc. Haven’t tried them out yet, but I’ll give it a shot at some point. Also spent some time after the raid doing tradeskill crap. Sending stuff around and gettin’ it done. I need a bunch of Elemental Waters for the Epic crafted leather stuff for my Boomkin so I’m doing transmutes. Also have to go farm some Fire Leaf for the AP Flask.. I think Fim might need some of those.. 🙂
So, tonight is the continuation of Naxx-25 if we get enough peeps.. We actually took down the first boss in Naxx-25 with 19 people last night (forgot to mention that) since a few had to leave after OS. That’s about it. Sorry for the delay in posting..
