It’s Getting HOT in Here!

A while ago, I posted about the Cinder Kitten being a new addition to the Blizzard Store in support of the Hurricane Sandy victims. Last night, thanks to one of my Facebook followers, I was alerted to the fact that the kitten had become available to the EU store. So I went to twitter to see if there was any discussion about it.

This morning I woke up to a wonderful surprise. Seems Coolidge had also found out about the addition by purchasing one for me. :D

Cinder Kitten

Who needs a campfire when you can cosy up to this cute ball of er… molten hotness. And suddenly I hear The Wiggles singing Hot Potato in my head. Call me silly but never knew they sung about spaghetti and bananas as well. Shows I’ve never actually heard the whole song before :P

His animations include licking his face with his paw and rolling around in a ball, as well as looking like he’s about to pounce something before sitting back down :P

So why not buy one for yourself or a friend. For US$10 (or EUR$10) until the end of the month, all proceeds go to the Red Cross so help support a worthy cause. Unless of course someone beats you to it :)

Thx again Cool <3

Solo Drama

Over the past week I’ve spent quite a bit of time soloing the four classic raids introduced in the latest patch for pet farming. On Wednesday, I went in on my priest to see how many I could add to my collection. Unfortunately, I didn’t manage to get any from the six I killed so I ended up caving in the next day and buying the Ashtone Core from the AH as I didn’t think I would be seeing one any time soon.

I had killed the two in AQ40 pretty easily but when it came to Viscidus, I had problems shattering him in time. After several attempts I gave up and left. Then in BWL, I gave one attempt to Razorgore but left after that attempt when I became overrun with adds between MC’ing. In Naxx, after killing Maexxna, I made the error of not clearing the room before trying Patchwerk so it didn’t end well. A few days later, I went into AQ with my hunter to see if I could do Viscidus but without any frost damage to melee, I didn’t get any further than my priest. The twins also gave me issues with my sub-par gear. It’s seemed so easy on my priest a few days before.

Tonight I headed back into AQ on my mage (after the hotfixes) thinking it would be easier at least for Viscidus but forgot about having a fast dagger, etc in my bag for the freezing bit. After realising my mistake, I reset the boss and had a good look in my bag and Guild bank – there was nothing. Then a spark of hope appeared when I thought about a possible vendor option. Never underestimate the power of your Traveler’s Tundra Mammoth. I bought the simple dagger from one of the vendors and tried again. Unfortunately, even with Time Warp, I only managed to get 18 hits before he unfroze.

As the time inched closer to server shutdown, I hopped back onto my hunter to try the Viscidus fight again; but not before I had a couple of fast weapons handy. So I enchanted my two vendor bought daggers with Elemental Force before I tried again. Woot! I was able to kill him finally! But best of all he dropped the pet! Hurray for my first pet drop from AQ :D

I really need to get some better gear on my hunter and mage to make it more painless next week.

In other good news, I managed to get a rare crow from the Faire in the few minutes before shutdown :D

Stylish Bling Time

By now you’ve probably seen the Blingtron 4000 around the place but you may or may not know that he’s been upgraded with a little bit of stylish flair.

In addition to collecting your daily Blingtron 4000 Gift Package, click his “Let’s Party” option for some stylin’ fun. For one hour (regardless of race), you’ll be instantly transformed into a human with the Dressed to Kill buff. Note that it doesn’t persist through death.

There appears to be two versions of the outfit:

Blingtron buff

Blingtron buff

Keep in mind that you can no longer pick up his daily gift on all your alts. He’s been fixed in 5.1 to now only dispense one gift per account a day (which is how it was supposed to work).

Bling rocket ride

Bling skyrocket

Dressed to Kill? Perhaps literally…
