Daily Journal: What I’ve been up to

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

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.

Daily Journal: Want to do vs Actually do

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

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.

 

Daily Journal: May the odds ever be in your favor

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: Day 19 I heard something back on the Hearthstone book

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.

 

 

 

 

Alt Appreciation #MonkWeek

The new kid on the Alt block.

Daily Journal: Day 10, No approval email yet & we did Thanksgiving a day early

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.
