First, I have to say that WotLK is great. You can hear a lot about my adventures so far in the next Twisted Nether. Bre and I talk FOREVER about it..
What am I not enjoying? The queues.. Of course.. We’re not as bad as some, but it does cut into my play time. I wish I could already create a Death Knight on other servers where I Don’t have a lvl 55. I would roll on some lower pop server and play on my other account while trying to get onto Draenor.
Anyway, so I got Fimlys to 72 last night doing some instances (We’ve done Utgard, Nexus, Azjol-Narub (az-noob) and the other Ahk’something at az-noob). I’m loving each and every instance so far. Each is very different from the other and I have to say the bosses in Ahk-noob are just awesome. I also got my wasp, Slacker, to level 71 last night and Rico, the Gorillililla, is almost 71 also (like 1.7k to go.. lol). Fim has been questing mostly in HF (although he did some quests in BT and Coldarra too).
Fyra is on her way to level 71. She has been going slower because I am leveling her exclusively with Traebear and Jordey (Kezz’s priest), but we’ve been doing instances on other toons instead of leveling those.
Fim has also maxxed out Skinning (thanks to instances with lots of skinnable mobs) and is now > 400 in LW. I even applied the new bracer patch that gives like +114 AP! Very Very awesome… Fim also got a port to Dalaran from our first lvl 74 mage in the guild (Thanks blue!) so he’s been running around there and even did one of the cooking quests.
In general, I am having a blast with WotLK.. Oh! And Fim also got that Achievement for killing some number of turkeys in 3 min. Hint: Best place to farm the turkeys is just west of the Expedition Outpost in HF (at the crossroads there). Careful, when you earn the achievement lots of stuff becomes aggressive that wasn’t before.. It changes back when you die though (dunno if it does otherwise).
So, anyway.. I’ll leave you with a bunch of screenshots from the few days I’ve been running around in Northrend.. Have a good one!
Ok, so my Wrath midnight release post is late.. Sorry
Yes, I did meet up with Mania and BRK. They tell the story pretty well as far as I am concerned.. I drove about 40 minutes each way and it was well worth it to spend the time waiting with people I “knew”. We had interviewed Mania previously on TNB and obviously I read BRK all the time..
So anyway, there were 2 lines when we got there after dinner (yes, I had dinner with BRK and Mania and her husband). One line was for getting all “finalized”. You got your final receipt with it’s little highlighted line and then you got to move to the OTHER line. This one was not going to be moving until midnight. It wrapped down the mall and around the corner.. There had to be well over 100 people there. Mostly male, of course, with some scattered females (sounds like a weather report).
Even met up with a fan (woot! we have 1), Stirling. He found us in line and actually wanted to talk to me (as opposed to everyone else who just wanted to talk to BRK or Mania). It was very cool. Had a great time and about 15 minutes after midnight I was on my way home. Stay tuned for the next TNB where you will hear all the audio recording I did on my grand journey..
What did I do when I got home? I installed the game, of course. But, I had CE coming in the mail.. So this was for my alt account.. AHHHH! No 70s on the alt account.. I made a DK instead and had a bit of fun starting out. Then it was pretty late and I was tired from all the driving.. So, I saved the rest for the morning…
Another definition for the acronym TBC….
To Be Continued……
So, uh.. I don’t think I mentioned this here (can’t believe I forgot), but I will be attending a “Midnight” launch extravaganza to pick up one of my copies of Wrath of the Lich King. I will be joining BRK and Mania at the GameStop in Waterford Lakes in Orlando, FL.
I’m planning on bringing my Camera (so you should see some, uh, “screenshots” here in a few days) and my nifty digital audio recording device (thanks honey for my anniversary present) to include some hard hitting reporting into the podcast this week.
Additionally, I’ll be bringing some TCG loot cards to give away.. Not sure what I am going to make y’all do, though.. Muahahahha….
I’ll be the one in the Blue TNB T-Shirt.. Probably hard to miss.. I’m sure the peeps that will be there will have never heard of me (other than Mania.. not sure about BRK… ) but they will get loot cards anyway… maybe..
My cohort in audio podcasting crime will also be attending her own event down in Miami! Unfortunately, she didn’t want to miss out on 4 hours of installing and the lagfest to follow just to come up to Orlando to partake in “our” festivities.. Can’t say I blame her..
So, come meet us! Get in that car and drive down.. Even if you haven’t pre-ordered, I bet they will have some extras… Jus doooo iiiit.!
