Played around a bit on WoD Beta

In World of Warcraft on June 30, 2014 at 8:14 am

I played around a bit on World of Warcraft: Warlords of Draenor Beta thanks to a friend. I made a premade hunter. The lack of serpent sting taking up a keybind is a bit weird. Because I have my pattern memorized with survival hunter and having that button difference is strange. Also the lack of an interrupt is horrible too.

The cute little tiny Dark Portal. Seriously it's cute. Deadly, but cute.

Everyone's trying to click on the Banner for an opening quest. Seriously, Blizz let's learn a lesson from last expansion and Timeless Isle. 80 people cannot click on the same item at the same time. This WILL be a problem.

Daily Journal: What I’ve been up to

In Journal on April 14, 2014 at 2:56 pm

I haven’t posted in quite a while. What I’ve been up to lately:

  • Playing Diablo 3
  • Still raiding in World of Warcraft
  • Putting together outfits in the Covet Fashion app (hey it’s paper dolls to go)
  • Playing with my new Pebble Watch
  • Working
  • I’ve also published a few books on the iBooks store. They are game guides.

What I’d like to do:

Alt Appreciation #PriestWeek

In World of Warcraft on January 30, 2014 at 12:15 am

I’ve been slacking on doing my last alt class. My baby priest is one I enjoyed in Cataclysm. I just haven’t found enough time to play her to my liking. She’s on the 3000 valor points portion of the quest for her legendary cloak.

I want to do many things. I want to gear all my World of Warcraft characters. I want to finish the hunter book. I want to farm all the mounts I don’t have. I want to level the last 2 classes I don’t have at 90. I want to level my horde characters. I want to do Photo 365..

 

What I actually do: Play for an hour then log off and read some book not even in my To Read backlog. Or just go to bed.

 

Alt Appreciation #PaladinWeek

In World of Warcraft on December 12, 2013 at 4:20 pm

Still catching up with Alt Appreciation. This week is Paladins. My new main alt is my Paladin. Like I’ve said in previous posts my main stays the same, but my main alt rotates.

Holybook started as a dranaei, but I was wanting to change her to human so I did when there was a sale on it. She’s Holy/Prot. Much better geared as Holy though. Prot is for dailies.

Booktrey is still leveling. She’s my highest level horde. She is my primary way of seeing Horde storyline. As you might can tell from the shield she’s Prot as well. I really don’t care for Retribution on a paladin. I can do it. Got pretty decent with CLCret, but still don’t like the play style.

 

Alt Appreciation #HunterWeek

In Journal, World of Warcraft on November 18, 2013 at 2:18 pm

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.”

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!

 

Daily Journal: My backwards life

In Journal on November 2, 2013 at 3:26 pm

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.

Alt Appreciation #ShamanWeek

In World of Warcraft on October 19, 2013 at 1:52 am

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.

http://farm4.staticflickr.com/3834/10341014513_ee9900fd72.jpg

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).

BookototemsThis 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.
