Silence is golden?

May 30, 2009 by

As much as I love this blog, it has been very, very quiet the past few months – why, you ask?

Well, with the recent economic climate, and both me and Cablin looking for jobs certain cuts had to take place.. WoW being one of them. Though, we recently reactivated for a month! Our time inbetween has been filled with FFXI (the game we met on) and if you know the game, feel free to catch our adventures on there, here.

Sorry for the silence – and we’ll be getting back to you soon!

Love is in the Air!

cupid-copyThats right, the Valentines Event has started today, and will continue to run for around a week.

I recommend looking through The Overachievers posts, telling you how to complete this years event. Its only short compared to the past few events we’ve had, so it is advisable to start getting those achievements extra early with your loved ones.

Whats Gwyn doing this year? Well, she has a small (but cute) surprise for Cablin, but he’ll have to wait and see. I like the Valentines event, its all so pink and glowing… Thats always a good thing, right?

Defenders of Fate do Sunwell!

February 7, 2009 by

kiljaedenon0As you can see by the screenshot on the left (thank you, Draeven!), we managed to complete Sunwell. It was only a fun run, since we cleared all possible raids till they unlock…

But we all managed to pick up the achievement for clearing it, and they didn’t mind me tagging along an hour late since I finish work late on a Saturday. Thanks guys!

Aside from owning old school raids, and the newer ones, we’ve been on alts a lot. Hunters, Death Knights, and our Blood Elf Paladins. With the recent changes, I’m hoping Ulduar is going to be tricky, because the game has suddenly become very, very easy. Its no fun clearing Naxxramas 25 in two nights, and having to take it easy on the other raids because we want some things left to raid at the end of the week.

Black Qiraji Battle Tank Retirement?

February 7, 2009 by

Myself and Cablin have been working on getting the Red, Yellow, Blue and Green Qiraji Battle Tanks from Ahn’Qiraj, since it classes as mounts so weblackq can work on getting the Albino Drake. They can only be ridden inside the instance, so you wont ever see them outside unless Blizzard changes that.

Its not that hard to duo, I just keep Lifebloom on him and since he’s an awesome tank anyway, I can usually help with a little DPS.

Anyway.

We knew the Black Qiraji Battle Tank was near impossible, so it doesn’t really bother our mount count that its being taken out. But its still a shame! The Black Tank is a typical ‘oldbie’ status symbol, and now even the most intrepid mount collectors can’t get them;

Going forward, the gates of Ahn’Qiraj will start out open on all new realms that are created. While we recognize that this is a unique event, we feel that the complexity of this event can cause various issues that negatively impacts a player’s game play experience. By automatically opening the gates and allowing immediate access to the Ahn’Qiraj instances, we would like to promote the higher level content that is available as well as ensure a smooth overall experience for players on these new realms.

This means that you can’t participate in the event itself, from which the Battle Tank is a reward. I know a few people who actually attempted to get the mounts by playing a new character on a new realm, so its not unheard of. These bugs are desirable!

The Black Qiraji Battle Tank will no longer be available with this change to the AQ event.

So, there you have it folks. People who have the Black Qiraji Battle Tank? Treat him/her well and keep them polished! (Thank you to Warcraft Mounts for the information!)

Such a happy Druid!

toothy

After months of doing the same fishing daily, my fishing loot pays off! Finally! Gwyn is having too much good luck recently, she got the Bronze Drake earlier this week, now Toothy?

A quick note:

I have a new button, on the right – its the link for Bronze Dragonflight’s unofficial player forums. I urge anyone from BDF who reads this to go sign up! Its a guy from our Guild who set them up, and he works hard on them – so go introduce yourself and have a natter!

Both factions are welcome, and its free to join – whats not to love?
