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.

So another Darkmoon Faire has come and gone… No Darkmoon Eye, no Moon Moon, no Darkmoon Rabbit. Well, I’ve only caught the Darkmoon Rabbit raid ONCE.
I got an add on called Rarity. Tries to tell you if you are Lucky or Unlucky based on number of tries you’ve tried to get a pet or mount. It’s showing my Moon Moon attempts as 2 and the chance for him to drop as 1 in 17. Lucky if you get in less than 11 tries. I need to hang out more on Darkmoon Isle to get more kills in.
The Darkmoon Eye is a 1 in 50 chance. I’ve done 9 attempts since installing the add on. Lucky if you get it in under 34 attempts.

Day 19 since I submitted the Hearthstone book. I heard back from them today. Apparently they objected to the word “Free” in the title. Both on the cover and in the title. Never mind my World of Warcraft book has it in both places and is approved and sitting on the iTunes bookstore. The World of Warcraft book update is still pending at Day 19. SWTOR Trooper book resubmission is still pending as well.
Corrections have been made to the Hearthstone book and it has been resubmitted already. Hopefully it doesn’t take nearly a month again for approval.
The new kid on the Alt block.
Shubook, she’s still leveling, but she’s in her 80’s. Shu is Mandarin for Book (at least according to the online translator). So she’s sort of Book Book. I really like the class design philosophy. It’s like Rogue 2.0.

Not that I really should expect the books to be posted this week, but I’ve started so now I’m keeping count. Day 10, iBooks not yet posted. Looks like the World of Warcraft book was downloaded 5 times yesterday. So yay for activity.
Had Thanksgiving at a friend’s house. Did a lot of the kitchen prep work. Hey, I can wield a knife just fine. I just can’t cook. Anyway I’m getting sleepy and it’s not even midnight yet. Dang turkey.
On the pet battles book I’m writing. I’ve got through the Pandaria trainers pasted into the book. Still need to work on Beasts of Fable & The Celestial Tournament. And layout. But I got a bit of work done last night. Today I’ve been cleaning out my RSS feed reader. I’m about a week and a half behind there.
I’ve changed my theme on the blog to a Christmasy one to hopefully put me in the mood for it. I’m hopefully going to try to do the NaBloPoMo into December. Try for a post a day.
Day 9 and the Hearthstone book is still not approved in the iBooks store. Yes, I’m not patient at waiting.
I did the Celestial Tournament pet battle again today. I got my 2nd pet. Chi-Chi. I think I may get the ox next.
Day 6. The Hearthstone book is not yet approved.
I got to thinking. This Christmas is going to be rough for me. Things have happened and I’m not in a good place emotionally. And I’m not sleeping on some days.
Just caught up with Dancing With the Stars. I’m sad to see Leah go. She was improving so much, but still a little inconsistent. Bill’s Argentine Tango was the closest I’ve seen to actual dancing from him. I don’t want Corbin to win because I consider him almost a professional dancer. My favorite was already eliminated of course, Elizabeth Berkley Lauren.
Here was my prediction with those who were eliminated marked off the list. Now I made this a few weeks into the competition.
Val & Elizabeth
- Corbin & Karina
- Amber & Derek
Brant & Peta
- Cheryl & Jack
Leah & Tony
- Bill Engvall & Emma
If you look at the screenshot, you’ll see the book’s I currently have submitted for approval. There’s an update in review for the World of Warcraft guide, but it is currently available in the 1.0 version. The Hearthstone book is Unavailable pending review because it is a first submission. The SWTOR: Trooper book is an old one I wrote after the Jedi Knight, Smuggler & Jedi Consular books. It was rejected because of some formatting issues. I resubmitted it recently as I think the iBooks Author updates have fixed the issue that was causing the rejection. Anyway I keep checking and keep checking. So far not approved. I had to look back at my texts to a friend submitted the Hearthstone book on 11/18/2013, so today is Day 5 without approval. I want to say I submitted the edits the same day.
Today I’ve been working on the Pet Battles book. Hope to have it down to just needing formatting here soon. I’m currently working on the Pet Tamer NPCs .
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 took my Paladin through LFR last night. Siege of Orgrimmar LFR was pretty horrid when it first launched. Garrosh was probably the worst, but I don’t think it was quite as bad a Durumu when he launched. Durumu week one I saw go to 10+ stack of determination before he was beat. Garrosh was only a 5 stack.
Also last night I finished up with Hunterbook. Say hello to my newest level 90. She already had a heroic level weapon she has been using since level 85. And she was greeted with a bunch of timeless isle tokens as soon as I figured out which characters were sitting on them. She makes 8.
Plan for today is to take my Priest through. She needs some TLC since I’ve neglected her for Book & Holybook. She’s fun to play. I love discipline. Just not enough time…. That seems to be a theme.
