Silence is golden?

May 30, 2009

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!

Wishlist 2009: EoH loots!

January 4, 2009

Firstly, happy new year! I hope everyone had a great start to the year of the Ox Tauren, and I hope your all safe and well.

spell_holy_proclaimchampionFirst constructive post of the new year, is a quick list of the Emblem loots I really should get off my bum and earn in the coming weeks and months. As most players know, Emblems of Heroism replaced Badges of Justice for Wrath of the Lich King, and can be obtained by doing Heroics in Northrend. So yes – very much the same as Badges of Justice with a nice name change.

I seem to have quite a list of loot I want from the pesky little things, and I thought I’d add it up here to keep track of it.

I still have a fair way to go. Luckily my new years resolution of doing a Heroic a day with Cablin (unless we both can’t be bothered) will get me them in due time. We actually have 2 Horde paladins leveling at the moment (69 as of today), which we transferred from our old realm through to Bronze Dragonflight this week, so even with us ‘taking a break‘ from raiding for now we have things to keep us occupied.

Cablin wants the Reins of the Green Proto Drake, as does most of the WoW population.. I want the mini pets. Our first egg? A strange pink snake, and a Tickbird Hatchling. I’ve assured Cablin that there is no way in hell he can use either as a mount, though…

In other news, from the 9th of this week the two Druids will be sunning themselves on a nice beach somewhere, since Cablin decided to excel himself for our anniversary and take me to Tenerife! We’ll be back in a week, to hit you up with more Druid love!

Naxxramas progress!

December 23, 2008

Its been a while. Things have been busy on Warcraft, with the guild getting up on its feet again, but! There has been progress!

Naxxramas. Considering the guild had to rebuild from the beginning again around a week ago, being in Naxx wasn’t bad progress. We did two bosses, just to ‘test the waters’ with some folks from another guild. Patchwerk (whom I didn’t get a screenshot of) and Maexxna got downed – with Cablin tanking. I’m really proud of him, he was Moonkin a few days ago and fwoosh. He’s now tanking in Naxx with no problems.

Thanks to a guildie, Gwyn has her very nice Earthgiving Leggings and Earthgiving Boots – we went into Violet Hold heroic soon after I equipped them and the mana regen is amazing. I was shocked at how little I had to sit and drink – I think my mana regen sits at 556 without buffs. It’ll increase, of course, but I wonder – if those 2 items made a huge difference, its going to be heaven when it gets higher.

I also managed to get The Egg of Mortal Essence. I was really gutted to replace my epic Alchemy stone that I had made at level 70, but it got bested. By an egg. Those blood, sweat and tears that I went through months ago to be able to heal 70 raids were well worth it, it lasted until 80.

Updated the site header and a few other bits and pieces today – I know it looks odd on widescreens, forgive me! I only realised when logging on on Cablins laptop! I’m going to attempt to read up and fix it for you!
