First night of raiding: wash out

2014-12-03

There was a definite air of excitement in our ranks as we gathered outside Highmaul in anticipation of our first night of raiding in Warlords of Draenor. EP gave the traditional “this is how we raid as a guild” speech and we stepped onto the lift together and rose up into the sunshine of the arena. Trash pulled and killed. Boss pulled and first tank death signalled that unbeknownst to us, things were badly wrong. That instant battle rez seemed to last forever… and in fact … Continue reading

Glow is a tauren once more

WoWScrnShot_081914_154053

Well it’s been a busy couple of weeks. After care preparation and quest completions, Glow and Shig faction transfered and joined Frostwolves on Saurfang hordeside. The usual worries about what would go wrong with the transfer, most of which never happened. I took screenshots of my bank: And my void storage…. Just in case: And only one item disappeared on the transfer, the Essence of the Firelord from the Thunderaan quest. Oh well, I expected it may go. The only other slightly annoying part of the … Continue reading

And she changes her mind

More personal ramblings, so apologies in advance. Nard was kind and invited us into his guild, but they are working through heroics and we aren’t even close, so we quietly left. You know, that cowardly thing where you wait till no one else is online to guilt, so that there’s no drama. Sigh. I did mail Nard and he was nice about it, but probably mystified by our flopping. Sorry Nard. So we’ve been guildless for a week or so again. I’m back to trawling the … Continue reading

Found a home

So since my last post, I’ve finally found a home. I ran into an old friend from Labyrinth of Lost Souls. I literally started comparing achievements to make sure it was him And then he cheered at me, yay! it was Nardelan! Anyway, it turned out that he and his partner had started  a new raiding guild. So Shigeko and I joined as casual members. I’m nowhere near geared enough to join their heroic runs, but getting there slowly. I ran a flex with some of … Continue reading

Returning to WoW… and LFG(uild)

Well. It’s been a while. Nearly two years. And I’ve fallen back into the cycle of wanting more. More gear, more rep, more pets, more progression… more from this thing we call a game. After a (very) long break, I’ve been tempted back in by WoD. Which means I had to buy MoP. Which means I’m playing MoP just to ‘check it out’. So I’ve geared Glow almost as much as I can in LFR. I’m working my way through my cloak quests, and incrementally bringing … Continue reading

Still wandering through D3

It’s been a while. Work has been busy and I’ve been sick, so I’ve not had the energy to do much in the evenings, any gaming has been just that and no more. I’ve been pottering away at D3 though, playing my wee barbarian. I finally finished act 2 on him, Belial inferno + Aussie pings is pretty brutal… that and it took me a while to realise I really needed a more dps build/gearing config to down him. Onto act 3 and being brutalised by … Continue reading
