Working more on the Alt Appreciation. This time it’s the Hunters.
Hunterbook my newest level 90. She makes #8.
Huntingbook my level 16 goblin hunter on Earthen Ring. She doesn’t get played very much.
Huntingbook who’s level 12 on Trollbane server. One evening friends & I decided to see the Horde ending of the Panda starting zone since we were complaining the Horde appeared more sympathetic in the Panda start zone. As my friend declared “Garrosh is a dick.” Varian at least is kinda friendly and “can you knock me down?” Garrosh is “go fight these huge creatures to prove your worth.”
I’m DONE!!!! Hearthstone book is off to the beta readers. The World of Warcraft iBook is available in the iBook’s store. It needs edits! Then I have to decide which book I’m working on next. Pet battles? Classes? Gold making? Help me pick with this survey. Please. Pretty please!
Had a down moment when thinking about work changed it so I’m now working Christmas day. Oh well. More time to write that night. I’m jsut trying to keep myself up. Somedays it’s rougher than others.

Worked last night. Got started on the outline & rough draft of the Pet Battles book. I have a feeling I’m going to be working on a lot more paper here at this hospital. For the Hearthstone Book I’ve just got the formatting for the Shaman, Warlock & Warrior to go.
Also good news! The World of Warcraft book is now live!
So what am I doing today. I worked… There’s 12.5 hours (without counting travel time) gone right there. I’m 12 hours flipped from a “normal life”. My day starts at 3:00 PM when the alarm goes off…. I NEVER get up when my alarm goes off. My alarm is an abused thing. The snooze get used a lot. Then I have to squeeze in any Warcraft dailies I’m meaning to do and try to leave for food by 4:30 pm. Eat & write if I’m inclined. I’ve got 1 iBook in Beta review and another in the writing process. The general World of Warcraft book is LONG. 138 pages. Hopefully the Hearthstone book is a lot shorter. Actually I’ve got a lot of it done currently. 3 heroes left to write for. Need to buff up the abilities sections, but I’m getting a lot closer. Anyway try to head for work at 6 PM. Sit and type/surf the net until time to clock in at 6:53 PM. Then it’s work, work, work with the rare bit of writing or reading until 7:30 am. Then it’s drive home and to bed and start the cycle over at 3 PM.
Yesterday I finished Pro Pet Mob achievement in World of Warcraft while doing some pet battle dailies. I also managed to finish leveling my Nether Fairie Dragon, Flayer Youngling and my Infinite Whelpling. I had insomnia a bit. I woke up after about 4 hours sleep. So I got a bit done.
Ok so apparently I mistimed the Alt Appreciation Rogue Week article and the dates is now active for Shaman Week. Just like with the rogues I”m keeping these all in the above level 10 to really consider an alt. Others are characters I toyed with.
Shammybook is my seventh and newest level 90. She just this week (with a bunch of luck) she got geared enough for Siege of Orgimmar LFR. I really should throw in some cheaper gems and enchants for her.
Another shaman is a level 29 goblin on my horde server Thorium Brotherhood. Bookototems. I like the totems the goblin shaman have with the mechanical drill bits. I just don’t seem to get much time on my horde character what with keeping up with 7 level 90s (5 of whom are geared enough for Siege of Orgimmar LFR).
This one is a level 25 on Burning Blade also named Bookototems. Yes, a PvP server. A friend of mine was going to go to that server and go Horde and I was convinced I’d level a shaman and play that over there with him. This was in the days before Cross Realm zones so lower level zones were empty… I don’t even think she has ever had a pvp related death. But anyway she qualifies as an alt. These days if I was going to level a toon to play on a Pvp server I’d level a normal server and faction transfer.
Ok so I just found the blog’s Alt Apprecation thread going on. I have a confession. Outside of Wow Insider I don’t follow a lot of the World of Warcraft bloggers. Not even rogue ones. And this one is Rogue week. Though I can’t profess Book as an alt. She’s a main. But she’s one of the Library (what I call my alts).
I actually do have a rogue alt. A level 18 rogue called…. Roguebook. She was created one day when I was bored. All I can say was… HOW DID I EVER LEVEL BOOK IN THE FIRST PLACE. I mean I know rogues. And this is AFTER the Cataclysm redesign of leveling. I was dying a lot until I got weapons upgrade and this was at level 5… I ended up springing for heirloom weapons on her because you level a rogue by killing things quicker than they kill you.
So ready to kick Garrosh and his power hungry mentality out of Orgrimmar. I’m just wondering what the reason will be that the Alliance allows the Horde to keep Orgrimmar and who is going to be the new Warchief.
And what is it with Taran Zhu always getting nearly mortally wounded this expansion????
Raiding again today. Got my dagger off my coin for my Megera kill! Heroic Jin’rokh the Breaker. Then we also worked on Heroic Ji’kun. Seemed like my group was keeping it together pretty well. Got 3 LFRs in after the raid. Nothing I needed out of there. Ran Kara & got my last pet out of there for Raiding for Leashes II: Attunement Edition. Ran Tempest Keep. Still no pets out of there. I’m wondering if it is bugged… Literally last week I ran TK 4 times and nothing dropped. First run this week, nothing…. So 5 total runs and I’ve seen NOTHING from 3 separate bosses. I’ve still got to run the healers through, but TK isn’t like Kara. Kara was designed for 10 people to run it. TK was for 25 people. The healers are geared for hps, not dps, but they do have a dps spec (well except for the Pally who gets things done in a tank spec and actually leveled as a tank).
Starting a new blog series. Why Blizz favors the Horde/Alliance. For the first one we have the Starting areas of Panderia. Several people as soon as they got off the boat wanted to get past Jade Forest into Valley of the Four Winds & the cooking trainers in Half-Hill. The Alliance definitely had the shorter run there.
I internally applied as a raider with my guild. This is what happened the first raid day after applying. Did decent on the fight. My dps is a little low, but that will come with gear improvement and better fights to show off what I can do.
