I am back and moved!!

I have resubscribed to WoW and I have moved by blog to the following address:

http://azerothianlife.wordpress.com

Please update your links and book marks and I look forward to entering back into the Blogosphere!!

Another one bites the dust…

Yup, that’s this is the end.

I have suffered another health scare/shock and I can no longer deny that looking after my in game health has now caused severe damage to my real life health. I am not sure if this is even repairable, however I do know that if I don’t pay attention and start focusing on me, I won’t get the chance to rez at the spirit healer.

I have cancelled my account today and I can play until the 4th July, I will be notifying my guild this afternoon when I get home and thanking them profusly for even offering me a trial. I will not be playing until then though, I may log on and say goodbye to some people, but then I will be uninstalling WoW from my computer to remove some temptation :D

Thanks for reading with me and thanks for making my part in the blogosphere enjoyable.

PS – For anyone who is interested I will still be blogging under my personal blog (message me if you want that) and I may be starting a new one with a whole bunch of exercise related stuff (I am taking up aikido in a fortnight).

Got Hacked

Yeah I got hacked, can you believe it???

I was out with the family on Saturday and hubby rings me to tell me that my Mage had just jumped online…WTF?!?!!?

So he jumps onto my account management page and we do the auth via phone thing – he is unable to log on my mage but logs onto my pally. He then logs onto the website and changes my password for me :D

So I have downloaded a scanner for my pc and low and behold 60 infections have been found.

The only sites I visit on my pc, are blogs and the usual things like wow.com, wowhead.com etc…..I do all my other surfing on my mac….

I am not impressed. I haven’t lost any gear or money, thank god my hubby happened to be online as he was logging off at the time. Thanks god he was fast enough to call me and get back my toons. My account was safe due to sheer dumb luck….are you going to be as lucky?

Changing my password again tonight just to be sure :)

So…be fucking careful people, because even with an authenticator attached to my account (for months) they can sting you :D

I have not done on e of these shared topics before as I never really had much to say on any of them, however, this one is great!

Which town, quest, NPC, or zone really needs to be purged with fire, in your opinion? Will you enjoy dancing on the ashes of a particularly hated quest giver? Or is there some zone you avoid like the plague (plaguelands excluded) where being nuked from orbit could only improve the experience? And why do you hate it/them so much?

There are too many for just one…so here is my long list :D

1 – anything, and I mean anything, near, about, related to or that has any connection to Gnomer the instance – and I mean all quests as well…possibly even tinkertown!! I hated that place possibly the same amount as the next one.

2 – Uldadoom…..yes….I cannot speak anymore about it as it makes me froth at the mouth in anger!

3 – When i was levelling my mage there was a quest in Theramore near one of the guard towers, part of the stupid missing diplomat quest chain I am pretty sure….I failed it so many times i left it alone and came back when I was 80…..that’s two xpacs later – I hated it so much I could not stand it….that also goes for that stupid cow in the hut – Tabitha…yes….she should get her own graveyard.

4 – When doing the starting zone for DK’s there is a quest you need to poke people with a magical stick to get them to talk to you, the first time I ever did that quest t took me close to 50 minutes to complete. Every person I poked did nothing but die. It is a stupid quest and should be removed from the game! I hope they blow up eastern plaguelands and whoever hands you that quests get swallowed by lava!

and finally, the one thing that should be wiped off the face of Azeroth in a huge smelting pot of lava and fire are:

5 – murlocs…all murlocs should be made extinct, oh they are funny and everyone finds them amusing now, but I cannot count the amount of deaths I have chalked up to those horrible things. I often find myself back in SS or Elwynn forest just nuking them for fun and payback….

I do my dailies fairly randomly, there is one daily I am fairly set on doing, as it drops a mount, like that damn egg, I keep trying. Today whilst doing the daily I was praying to all the Azerothian gods, that today would be the day I got lucky. Comparatively to some people, I have terrible terrible luck. I have to farm things for almost 3 times as long as some others. This has been proven by tests multiple times :)

I once was farming some for of spider silk from the spiders outside Allerian Stronghold, I wad there for about 3 hours and had managed to pick up 5 pieces of the silk, as it was coming up the third hour I complained in guild chat, a friend (who has unbelievable luck) came and helped out, after approx 15 minutes he had over 15 pieces. IN essence he had the silk drop from every single spider he killed. We tested this out on eternal fires as well, and a few other farming items…

So when I say that this was an absolute score you will understand how happy I am!!

When I opened by pack of spoils and saw the purple flash of writing I screamed…out loud!!

This is awesome!!!

dps on the up

Just to prove what can happen when I am paying attention and all my cooldowns are used and everything works as intended (ie i dont have to move just after using said cooldowns etc :D

I have been checking out my Wordoflogs after most fights, and have noticed that my ingame measure (skada) is fucked up, that or maybe I am using it wrong. According to my ingame thing I am sitting on about 4k or less, yet on WOL I am on about 7/8k…so I have no idea where I am actually sitting, however my dps time is low, I have to really work on moving less, instead of having like 80/90 uptime i am on 50-60 – which is shite.

Really have to be watching the movement this week on runs that I get into, I want to show improvement, this is one trial I don’t want to fuck.

I think I am getting along with people in the guild and I am doing as I am told, I am not standing in the fire etc, so all in all I am doing ok i think. I am hoping to get into the ICC 10 man running this week, as that will give me enough badges to get a tier piece…which I can then upgrade with the marks that I have :D

Dirty Dirty Kingslayers

Last night was raid night, second for me and first for hubby.  We went into ICC 25 man, did professor putricide on hard mode, and yep, it’s bloody hard, however we got him to approx 43% so it was almost there, we ended up just doing him in normal mode.  Hubby was doing some decent DPS for someone with apparently such bad gear, I just sucked – I could not get it happening last night. Was one of those nights that nothing I was doing was working.  I was always in the wrong spot and having to move etc, so I was basically sitting on like 5k dps most of the night, I mean it went up – I saw myself hitting 10k at one point, was just deflating.

But hey I am getting higher DPS than I ever did, so it is good.  They are an oddball bunch of people to be honest, but so far they have been nice to the newbies, vicious on vents occasionally and a bit of a laugh, all in all what I expected from a guild knocking off progression like this.

Anyway I was pushing through the pain, was not going to let that get me down, and we went and killed Arthas :D  yup, I saw him die!!  I feel dirty however that I wasn’t with my old guild to do it.  I wish there was some way I could transplant the kill into their heads for them to understand it isn’t hard once you can see it in action…

So I am now Kingslayer!!

I think ICC is fast becoming one of my favourite instances, I enjoy a fair few of the fights in there and killing Arthas does feel very epic :)

So they are changing cataclysm a little bit. I would have been upset about the guild achievements being removed, but well I am not overly upset now :)

I like some of the changes, but not sure about others. Doesn’t really matter to be honest, I love the game and they would have to really screw it up for me to not want to play :)

I will just wait and hope it means it will come out sooner now!!! Fingers crossed anyway :)

Settling in…..maybe?

So new guild, all new toons and new faction, so many things, I have run out of money, no surprise there, but I am on annual leave all this coming week, so I will be doing as many dailies as possible on all 3 of my level 80′s (not just dailies but opening up quest areas as well like Icecrown etc) for the cash.  My warrior is on another server still, but money does move servers you know :d hehe

I think this week is going to be hell boring doing it, but it should set me up nicely financially.  I am also going to spend the week attempting to play the AH to my benefit, after all I now have a toon that can disenchant stuff, so that will be a bonus money maker, if other people don’t beat me too it.

I am slowly settling in, I feel awkard and unsure of myself, which I am sure many people feel when they head off and start something new.  I feel very relived that I log onto the game and the couple of sparse whispers I get are about people and not guild issues, that makes for an enjoyable play time.  And if we don’t respond to each other straight away there is no follow up hounding…it is nice :D

My bear transferred his level 80 hunter over, so we could run heroics together occasionally etc, which is cool, we did one this morning, hopefully will catch him again tomorrow.

Hubby got into the same guild as me as a raider, I am happy, as we were not sure he would. His gear is slightly less than mine due to his old shiftwork – thank god he doesn’t do that anymore (yes it has only been a week but it is bloody nice knowing he doesn’t have to work until 10pm), he would raid only say 40% of the raids we had, even less probably. But they looked past that, and we are now in the same boat – fighting for a raid spot and on a more casual basis until someone drops off…and only then if we prove we can play.  So it may not be the perfect position to be in, but as I said to hubby a new xpac always brings changes, AND we are with the guild we have been wanting to be in for almost 2 years.  So what if we don’t get to run every single night in their progression runs, they have plenty of other runs happening all the time, we just have to get in on one of those.

All in all, I think it will be ok providing I pass my trial period, I will just try and get to know the people and make friends where I can.

I just re-read this post and it really was a post about nothing :) But I guess I just wanted to get the thoughts out of my head and onto “paper”.

Created a toon on my new server to come and chat with me :) YAYA!!!

Our first piccie together as a little level 3 Druid!!

Isn’t he the cutest Tauren you ever did see?
