No it is not for Hearthstone….
It is for TESO! :)
This Friday, goodbye WoW and FF14 for a bit….time to take an arrow to the knee!
Ok Navi you asked so here it is…. :P
3:34 AM Tuesday Sept 25th
Logged into WoW and shocked to see quite a few people already on!!
Vanicus from Repgrind is on – fishing :P
Zugzuug and Fayle and Lyssi are all on leveling away in the Jade Forest.
I log in….crap forgot to pick up a DPS spec!! (I was in holy/disc) Oh well, I have smite spec I will be ok! So away I go smiting all the poor misguided alliance out of the way!
Time flies by and Lyss has to head to work, I keep on smiting. It was killing those Jade Kitties that when a Human DK decides he wants to kill me – he catches me off guard and I am doing ok when an Night Elf hunter also decides he wants some and they tag team me….hmmm a bit annoying but its a PVP server. 20 minutes later I am turning in some quests and Mr. Human DK shows up again along with Mr. Nelf Hunter…DK decides to try it again, Mr. Nelf emotes he is sorry and leaves. This time I am prepared…PoM, renew, bubble. Mr. DK is trying to kill me, oh noes! Dot him up. Smite. Penance. Void Tendrils. Psychic Scream. My health is not falling, his is….he gets to 25% health. Now he decides he does not want to continue this second date. Oh hell no! I chase him down and he kills himself by jumping off a cliff! :) /flex
Leveling continues without any hinderences for a while, except for the few rares that must die! Smite all the things! I have to say, kudos to Blizz for making rares actually fun and worthwhile to kill. 200xp a kill yum!
It was not till level 88 and a lot of hrs later, by this time Zug had hit server 1st and Fayle was almost there at 89, that I am feeling horrible and tired and things are not dying! I decide to try to shadow….ugh….died a lot…I account this to being so tired. I swap back to disc….
3:30 AM or so Fayle hits 90 and logs off. I try to keep awake by doing some jumping jacks etc and it helps for a bit. I check to see what priests are close and the closest one is at 88 and I am 89 – 70% to go to 90. I have it in the bag as far as horde side, but I am not sure on Alliance side, sneaky alliance….I push till 5AM…and I cannot make it…I crawl into bed….
7AM….a drop bear wakes me up! I yell and scream bloody murder, but the drop bear uses reason and logic to get me out of bed. A shower and some exercise, wakes me up and I log back into the game. /who and I see that I am still the only lvl 89 priest. :) GO ME!
With enough sleep now, shadowing all the things is a log easier now….98% and I turn in a 4 quests…bring me to 99%…OMG one more quest…hey the Klaxxi has one more for me! My heart is pounding at this moment as I curse every bog beast that does not drop a perfect eye for me! On the 12th kill it drops…I hearth back the Klaxxi dude…turn it in and boom!!!!!!!! I was surprised to all the congrats tells from people lol :) (Apparently Zug got a lot of hate! Poor Zug!)
I will say doing this once. I dont think I will ever do this again. I have never felt so drained after this. However, it was a big thrill seeing that cheev pop on my screen!
Stealing inspiration from my buddy Arvash!
In the new Mist of Pandaria expansion, Druids will be getting a new spell called Symbiosis, which will allow them to “trade” a spell with another player, based on the player’s class and combat role and the Druid’s specialization.
So my question is, if you could have any spell you want from any other class, current spells or new ones in MoP, what would it be? How would you work it into your rotation, gameplay, etc.?
The one spell for my Priest Liyhe would have to be a Battle Rez! It would be nice to have one, because lets face it, how many DK’s save up their runic power or how many people actually raid with warlocks? (They smell like imp poo!)
Other notable mentions:
Travel Form – but instead of a cheetah or a stag – a unicorn! lol
Healing Shrooms – but instead of making a smurf village – make a bunch of heretics burning at the stake!
Summon Ghoul/Demon/pet etc – Angels!
But to expand upon Arv’s initial question if I could have an ability from any MMO, it would be simple. From FFXI:
And it’s upgraded version:
I don’t really tank in WoW, it’s too much work! However, I did tank as a ninja in FFXI.
Now the ninja in FFXI originally was not thought out by Square Enix to be a tank. It the players who made the ninja into a tank.
Now to be a ninja tank in FFXI, you needed good gear, and the ability to time your casts well. If you were good xping was easy street, get a bad one and it was painful. A good one would only get hit maybe a few times here and there, a bad one was worth then a noob DK tank in Hellfire Ramparts.
It was simple, when you had both versions of the spell – Ichi – took about 4-5 sec to cast, Ni was almost instant cast.
1.) Prepull – cast Utsusemi:Ni – if you were main job ninja - you got 4 shadows
2.) As the mob s beating on you – keep track of how many shadows you have left, before the last one is gone, start casting Utsusei:Ichi so the last Ni shadow would go before Ichi finishes casting. But if for some reason the mob misses your shadow, or you dodge, one had to cancel the last shadow from Ni. Why you ask? Because Ichi cannot overwrite Ni, while Ni could overwrite Ichi shadows.
3.) While doing this you had to make sure maintain threat – by using your WS when poss, and other ninjitsu spells as needed.
With the MoP release date being old news, I have been thinking what are somethings I would like to get done in a pre-MoP Azeroth.
1.) Get the new hunter to 85 (currently 80) and hopefully with some decent gear.
2.) 10000 HK on my priest! (almost there!)
3.) Get the baby Shaman to 85 (currently 82)
4.) Level up the new Alliance Warlock with Lyssianna! I forgot how much “weaker” one is without Heirlooms!
5.) Once 5.0 hit, get the SR crew together for a raid test run to play with the new talent system.
6.) Get in on some RBG action with Navimie!
7.) Maybe some 2s or 3s in arena? Big maybe here.
8.) Play more beta when I can.
9.) Blog more often….
10.) More exercise!!!!!
11.) Check in on Blog Azeroth more often and check out the shared topics section.
And for the current Shared Topic!
“Are you playing the MoP Beta? Why or why not? How much time are you spending there vs. the “live” servers.”
I admit i have not played as much beta as I could. Been spending more time on live then beta.
1.) I don’t like losing progress.
2.) I sort of want to not have all of MoP spoiled for me.
3.) NO ADDONS
4.) Takes away from time I could be getting stuff done on Live.
5.) Can’t make gold that I can keep!
6.) Things change on the beta.
Why I should play more beta:
1.) More familiarity with MoP system of talents.
2.) Know the best path to level faster.
3.) See more of Pandaria!
4.) Pet Battles!
5.) It’s something different!
6.) Get used to MoP healing.
Why do people take things in games so seriously….?
(these are my own opinions, if you are offended…sorry deal with it)
Why do poeple seem to complain about the silliest things?
Things I see people complain a lot about in games
1.) OMG…it’s too cute it doesn’t belong in a MMO
2.) Why does everything look so slutty….
3.) Why do the men look so gay….
4.) boob, boobs, boobs…why are they like this, so unrealistic!!!!
5.) It looks like WOW
It’s a game. It is not supposed to be realisitc. It is the company’s game not yours. If you don’t like it, then don’t play it. Want realistic gear….so outside and put some armor on and run around if you want realism. Sorry lots of men like them. Also women like eye candy as well. Why not cater toall of your customers. So what if it looks like wow….wow borrowed from EQ etc etc…..
Seriously people complain about something important, like the economy or the environment, not size of boob in MMOs…..
Shhh…there is a troll and a femtaur in disguise here….Also…mmmm fried chicken!
A lady rides this way? And before Slice is a girl comments! SHUSH!
And below….proof all elves are female? Aka eye candy for Lyss and Van…thought they might appreciate it…or perhaps Sorak as well. Or maybe even Arv!
