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.

Daily Journal: I need to gem and enchant

Well Book got her gloves out of normal last night when we got Gen. Nazgrim. Now I’ve got to gem and enchant those. That gets rid of the last of her LFR tier pieces. The helm is still Flex. But hey, guild got 3 new bosses last night on normal on one night. Malkorok on normal is a doozy. Considering we’ve had difficulty getting 25 people together doing it twice in the same week is awesome. So is getting 6 new bosses down in that same week.

I think I have Holybook’s healing set gemmed & enchanted, but I’ll have to check. I know Shepardbook isn’t gemmed, but I enchanted her on Sunday in the middle of the Flex raid I was conned into.

Got a bit of the Pet Battle book written and typed up.

Yesterday I felt accomplished just mailing out the maple syrup I’ve been sitting on for a month and the old iPad (it should arrive Thursday).

Alt Appreciation #WarlockWeek

Continuing with the Alt Appreciation run… This week it’s Warlocks. So to celebrate the purple, I only have one alt to show you.

Bookocurses

Her original name was Booktoo. She was my third level 80. My third level 85. My fifth level 90. At level 85 I was a little tired of her having the name Booktoo and changed her name to Bookocurses.

 

Rogue Week of Alt Appreciation

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).

Roguebook

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.

 

From Feedly: The mount you’ll engi-need in Patch 5.4

Really liking the herbalism uses with this mount.

We posted last week briefly about the Sky Golem, the redesigned engineering mount that will allow you to pick flowers as you fly around. And we posted a picture of the Sky Claw, but now, there is video of this mount in all its glory. And guess what, Engineering just became the best profession. Again.It’s all a little confusing, really, as we were convinced that this would look like the sky claw we’d all seen before, but this is far, far better. It’s effectively a shredder suit, that you put on, and fly around in. There are four different colors available, as you can see from Adriacraft’s video above, and all of them look pretty great.

This is crafted by engineers, at a cost of 30 Living Steel, as well as 30 Jard’s Peculiar Energy Source. These are currently created on a daily cooldown, so it’s going to take engineers a while to get this mount built. However, there is no requirement for Engineering skill to use it, at present at least, so this mount can presumably be sold on the Auction House! I am leveling my engineering just to build this. And you should too.
