If there is one thing about me that is kind of strange (hush, I know there are a lot of things werid about me), is I do not like waiting or not know when something is going to happen.
Prime example – Release date for Cata.
Possibly Nov 2nd. Not confirmed it appears as of yet. But if that is true…I have a list to do that I want to get done in WoW.
1.) Get another 80 toon, at this point appears will be my Tauren Druid. Followed by my Night Elf Death Knight.
2.) Help guildmates who do not have the King Slayer to get it.
3.) Help Zug get his Shadowmourne.
4.) Get a drake possibly. Meh not too worried about this.
Hopefully this date will hold firm…otherwise….grrr….someone’s gonna get some pain!
A few nights ago. Got to meet in game….Repgrind
She is a blast and a great person! (although, for some reason for longest time I thought she was a he). Now this maybe due to all the human male toons? And I know it is bad to assume and base things on words and image. So Rep! Sorry to make that mistake!
A couple of night ran a couple of randoms with them and other guildees, and then last night a few more. It was a lot of fun. I didn’t get any screenshots, but after one CoS….nekkid dancing happened. Not sure how it happened….it just seems whenever there is that box there….I have to jump on it and /dance!!! For some unknown reason, I decided to hit the B-day suit macro….yes I am bad.
Unfort we were all turned into meh humans. But fun nonetheless. However poor Rep was turned into a BALD human male. So ugly! Shirl surprised us all with the sexy supervillian outfit. :) Poor Njeri was crying. /pat pat it will be better soon.
We managed as well to knock out some achievement in Occ for some peeps as well, not too shabby!
In my alliance guild, got the Full house achievement and after that there were a few hiccups, but nothing that could be solved with a few bandaids.
On the note of badges/emblems to be converted soon for the next patch….seems like a good idea. But it seems with the conversion rate, gems, saronite, BoAs will become more expensive. I have to sit down and look at the math closer, but it appears to be best to spend those emblems now.
OMG the worgen models….so sexy! I cannot wait to make a Worgen fury Warrior!!! RAWR!!! FOR THE ALLIANCE!!!!!
And my favorite bit of RP:
Bronzebeard: “A lone orc against the might of the alliance!” (I imagine him thinking WTF is this orc smoking)
DB Saurfang: “Dwarves……” (DB is thinking…they have no idea!)
Also the bit with Saurfang Sr. shows up….and then usually stupid ass King Variass shows up and tells him men to stand down to allow a “grieving father” to get his son…heartwarming….still gets me everytime.
The evil annoying Professor is down!!! (25 man heroic)
Now this is a fight with a lot of mechanics to watch for, it also has a lot randomness contained within, you cannot control. This inability to control the randomness with some mechanics makes this fight a pain. It is no wonder that according to WoW progress that 4944 (6.55%) have killed the Prog on 25 man heroic.
Also, one of our Hunter’s, when he obtained Heroic: Plagueworks Achievement, also got It’s over 9000. :)
Unbound Plague is an example of a mechanic you can control, and with proper control the raid can prevent deaths and etc.
A mechanic you cannot control is whom is targeted with a ooze. The ooze holding a raid member in place and then the Prof. throwing a goo at said member is just bad freakin luck.
Avoiding what you can to avoid sillly deaths is necessasry to down the annoying Prof. Dying to things like plague and goo is a no-no. Too many deaths and you will not have the needed DPS to kill him in phase 3. The raid wide damage when he gets to 4 stacks on a tank is rough. (I know that sometimes death is seemingly unavoidable at times, bad luck is bad luck)
After that waltzed on thru the rest of ICC and went onto Mr. Arthas…last fight, 1 attempt/10 min before end of raid night. Walked in and owned him. 25 man Kingslayer title obtained! Also:
Archus, Greatstaff of Antonidas obtained as well! :) All in all a great night of raiding.
Tuesday night. Hope to have the same fun. Raiding is fun. Questing is not!
What do all of these games have in common??
THEY ALL EVENTUALLY IN SOME SHAPE OR FORM GOT THE AXE FROM ME!
Some lasted for a while others did not.
With some, AoC, UO, Aion, and LOTRO, I had no qualms about canceling and then uninstalling the games from my PC.
I had no attachment to them, and there was no “magic” when playing those games. They felt like soulless clones.
With FFXI—yeah I am playing FFXIV open beta now…so you know I am just playing FFXI – 2.
The final game…Warhammer Online (WAR)
I SO wanted this game to work. The Warhammer IP is such an awesome world. It is a fantasy world, but it is a brutal one. Even the pretty elves are not without their flaws. The humans are a bunch of religious fanatics. A very brutal brutal world.
WAR was also the 1st game where I got into PvP. For the most part Tier 1-3 to me at least was balanced and not too bad within Scenarios. in Open RvR combat…..made me want to bash my head in. Inbalances killed it, and people who do not know how to work as a team.
Tier 4…oh god how I wanted to love thee. By this time ugh….hated those scenarios…..CC, Roots, Knockbacks galore, and Order’s guards bugged…..Serpents Passage made me want to cry…and due to its low # requirement…it was all that ever popped it seemed on Ironforge.
Tier 4 RvR…..again beat head into wall…..poorly implemented.
Also…no PvE content…or a severe lack of….and the biggest “PVE” thing to raid your enemies capital city….severely bugged/gimped etc.
Although, recently I have heard that WAR has done some good things….Rivs even went back for a bit. I am tempted to reinstall and head back maybe.
The one thing that has me tempted to go back…..SKAVEN to be added as a mobs etc. Sorry for those Order or Chaos players. I am a servant of the horned rat at heart. Playing the table top game and having a millions rat men it seemed to swarm the enemy!!!!
Sorry Blood God or Sigmar, Skaven and the Horned Rat is where it is at. They really should add them in at some point. I know I would come back to wage WAR!
Do you want to see…
Are you sure?
This is actually pretty tame.
Although in due time i bet people will be modding this stuff to make it not so tame.
Note: found the image on a forum i browse, apparently lots NPC’s have dirty lines. There is a Taru errr Lalafell who likes to measure manhoods….yeah…..dirty dirty Japanese. :)
Finally got Open Beta to install…only took a few hours…once it was done it took like 1 hr to play…damn betas.
Anyways only got to play for about an hour. The charater creation is nice. Just enough to make me happy, but not so much (*cough* Aion) to make it overwhelming.
Made a Seeker of the Sun Miqo’te Pugilist…punching things to death ftwmfw.
Bleh as with beta…things are laggy, not graphically, rather poss UI. Seems ok for now….graphics are amazing. But graphics does not make a game.
Naughty NPC’s…soliciting PC’s…
More SS when i get home.
You want to know why?!?!?!?
Cause it delayed me from applying for open beta to FF14….damn ICC….*grumbles* XD
And now I get this message…
“Applications for the FINAL FANTASY XIV Open Beta Test have been temporarily suspended. Please wait until we are ready to accept new applications and then try again.”
Oh well I will keep on trying all day. Hopefully I will get on. I can’t wait to try it out and make a character…that is lol probably one of my favorite things to do when 1st trying something out. More character choice = good. boob slider…ok….!!! *grin*
Tonight ICC pt2….Heroic Prof…ugh. He will die tonight. maybe a LK and RS.
Last night managed to pick this puppy up! Bonespike! Just need a gem and enchant and good to go!
