Leaping Hatchling :3



I spent about 2 to 3 hours waiting for Takk The Leaper to spawn so I could get a Leaping Hatchling to sell.

I finally got it and I just couldn't resist adding it to my collection. :)

It's soooooooooo cute when it leaps to you :3 I recommend EVERYONE get one.

Go now! I'll probably have a new post written by the time you get back >.>

Look At The Shiny Pictures!

Since I can't be bothered to finish my post on TotC (the 5-man) I'm going to attempt to distract you with shiny pictures instead :D

First off...



I was startled to say the least, when I logged back into Shattered Halls (the instance) and found myself falling through the void >.>



Just an average night in Orgrimmar :P



Attack of the Treants!!! I'm not gonna lie to you, I shat a brick when all these treants appeared lol.

And one more piccy...hmm...where is it? Oh, here we go!



/drool. How AWESOME is that guy? I'll tell you, VERY! :D

That's it for now, I'll make sure to take more weird/funny/disturbing SS's for next time.

What's Been Happening

Let's start with Sevei. First off, Sevei (my Hunter) is FINALLY exalted with the Argent Dawn.



Yay me! That means I've got me a new title :3



Also, you may notice from the above SS that Cyanigosa finally gave me the staff I've been after for ages: the Staff of Trickery. Thank god, I was getting sick of Loken's present.

Now lets move on to my Rogue, Lyther. Only one notable occurance with her.



Booyah! Finally, my third toon to reach 60! ^^

I'm not sure if I have an SS's of Velestrasz, my Paladin. At level 67, I've respec'd him as Prot and managed to acquire a decent tanking sword and tanking shield for him to begin his adventures in Northrend with.

Well, that's all I can think of to report on just now. I'm sorry for not posting more but I'm in a kinda 'meh' mood just now. I'll try and update again soon though.

Oracles or Frenzyheart...

Hmm, should I grind rep with the fishy-men, or the wolfy-men? Answer:



How could I not choose the faction that has the statue-with-the-permanently-surprised-face? :)

My Goals

I've been kinda 'meh' 'bout WoW lately, so I've decided to post a list of goals too help me when I need some motivation. I hope it works, seeing as I'm a lazy bum lol

1) Get a better bloody Ranged Weapon! I swear to freakin' God Almighty and Allah and all those dieties that may or may not exist, I am SOOO sick of my Prison Warden's Shotgun. It's gotten to the point where I feel near physical pain whenever I look at the thing.

I'm going for either the Nesingwary 4000, which is craftable by Engineers, or the Blunderbuss of Khaz Modan, which you can get for 25 Champion Seals at the Argent Tournament.

2) Get a better stat stick a.k.a Melee Weapon(s). Atm, I'm using Lightning Giant Staff, which is by no means bad, I just really want an epix :)

I'm going for either the Staff of Trickery that drops from Cyanigosa in the Violet Hold or the Silvery Sylvan Stave which you can purchase for 25 Champion Seals at the Argent Tournament grounds.

3) Get Normal Flying. Nuff said.

4) Get Epic Flying. /cringe.

5) Get Dual-Spec and make a good PvP spec. Aww, my poor wallet :(

That's all I can think of right now. Still, it's enough to be getting on with, eh? Right, off to the Argent Tourney and my Blunderbuss/Stave. :)

Level 80!



Yaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa-pauses to take a breathe-aaaaaaaaaaaaaay! <3

Well, my Hunter has been lvl 80 for about 2 weeks but I've just worked up the energy to write this post now lol. Level 80 is alot more work than I'd thought it would be :) As soon as I dinged, I started gathering mats for craftable epics...it turns out I'm not as patient as I though ^^ half an hour later I gave up and decided to buy as much as I could off of the AH.

I've also been PvP'ing ALOT more now, lots of my gear is either Hateful Gladiator gear or Titan-forged gear :3

I think that once I replace my gun, I'll be able to be try Naxx 10 :D

Karazhan



That's right, you heard correctly. TheAllianceGuy, on my lvl 77 Draenei Hunter Sevei, finally ventured into the fabled Karazhan, former home of the Last Guardian of Tirisfal, Medivh.

Filled with ballrooms, mess halls, stables, opera halls, a gargantuan library and even a large telescope, it seems like a fitting place for such an important man.



The first thing that struck me about Karazhan, was the amazing atmosphere. It just has 'something' about it, from the moment you enter the instance, you can tell it's gonna totally rock.

As my five-man group ventured deeper and deeper into the castle, we experienced many wondrous things.

Like the Curator. He is so cool, even if he does like the Arcane thingies in SWP (except more pinkish). His voice, is really awesome sounding too:



Or the AMAZ-ing Chess Game. Seriously, very fun:



Right I just wanna say now, Medivh, as sexy as his voice is, he is a fucking CHEAT-er. Every minute or so the Image of Medivh, caresses our ears with some phrase then proceeds to attempt to ream us, in a illegal manner lol >.>

At first I went as the Knight, got killed, then a Footman, got killed, then went a healer and cruised through the rest of the fight. It was a very fresh and interesting fight to me, 'specially seeing as I love chess :D



I also loved the Shade of Aran and Netherspite <3. I was SO tempted to move during Flame Wreath lol. Thankfully, I managed to resist the urge as I wasn't sure if we would wipe ^^.





Netherspite was actually the hardest bit of Karazhan, we wiped three times before we got it down. I was obviously standing in the Blue Beam of Awesome Kickass-ness...then at like 20 stacks of the buff, I didn't noticed the Void Zone thing open up under me and I died in like 3-seconds flat >.>



And finally after like an hour, we got to the final boss, Prince Malchezaar. That's this guy down here:



And then, finaaaaaally, I got the Achievement ^^



WOOHOO!! ^^ I was so happy when I got this :D

Well, that's my Karazhan post, through with only of all the pictures I took lol. Please comment and share your experiences in TBC's best raid.

I Wanted This And Now I May Be Getting It

Ok, this post was gonna be about a Karazhan run I did a few days ago, rife with pics. But I've seen something which ties back to a post I made a few months ago about wanting a player-chosen level cap.

Well, in an interview with Lead Content Designer Cory Stockton, many questions were asked about the upcoming 'exp gains in BGs'. All of which I found mildly interesting, seeing as I have developed a soft-spot for AV and WG recently, yet the information didn't make me run around, screaming 'FUCK YEEEEEESSSSSS!!!!' at the top of my lungs. This did.An excerpt from the above linked article:

Do these players still have an avenue to remain at a level of their choosing while still being able to engage in PvP combat?

Cory Stockton: Yes, players will have access to a new option that will allow them to turn off experience gain in PVP. This option also ensures that you will only be matched against other players that have set the same switch. Players can activate this option by talking to new NPCs, Behsten and Slahtz, near the Battlemasters in Orgrimmar or Stormwind. This new ability will cost 10 gold to turn on or off each time.

If these players disable the ability to gain experience, will this apply to PvE content as well?

Cory Stockton: Yes, this option will apply to PvE content as well as PvP.

*Insert much, screaming, flailing and general happy behaviour* Ladies and Gentlemen, Trolls and Goblins and even all the weird Slime creatures. I am one happy AllianceGuy :D

And though I have never heard of Cory Stockton until 20 minutes ago...Dude, you officially ROCK!

Teh Fuck?

Okay okay, I'll be the first to admit I'm not the most observent person in the World of Warcraft but...what the fuck is that?



Seriously, I have NEVER seen this before and I don't like change (another reference for ya).Anyone know what it is and what it's for?

My Pussy Is Happy

...I mean my Druid, get you're minds outta the gutter. Geez.

I ran through DM on my Feral Druid today and got two lovely items.

Cape of the Brotherhood and Lavishly Jewled Ring.

Unfortunatly, being the giant bastard he is, Edwin VanCleef didn't see fit to allow me to pull the Blackened Defias Armor off of his broken corpse.

Oh well, guess I'll just have to go back tomorrow and free the beast all over the back of his head. If you get the reference, you win.

Gold Sellers Being Creative

Now, I hate Gold sellers, let me be clear 'bout that. What they do is both wrong and annoying, especially when they spam trade chat or /w you.

Sometimes though, the Gold Sellers do something you can't help but admire.Like in this pic.



Maybe this is commonplace on other realms but this is the first time I've seen someone do this and it made me grin, chuckle and mutter, 'Those wacky bastards'. For that, I salute them. /salute

But no seriously, Gold Sellers are bad and anyone who buys gold from such companies will almost definitely get (at least) their WoW account hacked. If you are lucky, they won't delete or transfer your characters.

The horror stories I've heard.../shudder. Anyone else seen or heard any funny Gold Seller Ads? Leave a comment and tell me about 'em :P

Girls Play WoW

Yes, they do. I know many awesome female players, most of whom are healers. What I don't understand is why they get so much hassle over their (rather lovely) gender.

For example, I was in a group yesterday and we where gonna attempt HoL. I messaged an amazing healer I'd grouped with before and asked her if she would be up for it. After she said yes, we got a tank and 2 more DPS to fill out the group.

Then when we were at the first boss (really awesome) we kept wiping because the tank obviously wasn't very good and kept losing aggro. When I asked the tank if he had bought his account of Ebay, the rest of the group started going off on my Healer friend.

Maybe some of their reasons were valid but I stopped listening to them as soon as someone uttered the words, "Get this whore out of our group so we can get a REAL healer in." I swear to god, that pissed me off so fucking much!

After a few choice words and a few /kick's, my friend and I decided to chill out by doing some fishing. =3

Uhhh, damn this kinda turned into a rant...anyway to summarize: Girls play WoW, GET OVER IT.

For The Alliance!

Guild Drama

I have a problem. All three of my Alliance toons are in separate guilds. These guilds are all lovely, full of great people and stimulating G-chat. However, I have discovered a guild so awesome and fun, that I want to stick all my toons into it.

Anyone got any advice on how to go about that without hurting anyone's feelings?

I've thought about just/gquit'ing but that wouldn't be fair to my guildies. Sigh, sometimes I wish I wasn't such a nice guy...Anyway, I'd love your feedback on my situation.

For The Alliance!
