There are so many things I’d like to accomplish in-game and it would be so easy for some but for many I’m still left wanting. Sure there are times when all the stars align and I can get things done (when other people are involved) but the activities which require one or two people are what keep me going most of the time.
Why is it when something bad happens and you feel like a failure from a guild collapse, you don’t always find support from the few you thought were your friends? Sure there were a couple who gave me my space at a time when I needed anonymity but there were others who left me feeling abandoned while in the security of their own ‘real’ guild. It seemed like most of them only used us just to get some raid time on their alts (as that was the only time we would see them). Then there was the individual who used our guild to get their legendary only to leave one week shy of achieving that goal and giving credit to his girlfriend’s guild. It actually makes me wonder if he used his ‘mental issue’ in the weeks leading up to it as an excuse. I’d like to think not but who really knows except him and his conscience.
I understand people have moments when they just don’t want to raid but even with one person absent in a small guild (especially a tank) can cripple a raid. When you tell a guild member you just didn’t feel like getting on and then later telling the GM and raid leader ‘my son cut his foot open’ is just not on.
It’s moments like these which force me to be a lot more cautious when it comes to asking other people for help. This is why I’m left with one scenario and one dungeon achievement as it requires group coordination. As I mentioned before, I had asked someone early on if they’d be interested in doing challenge modes but they said they should finish the challenges with their initial group first which was understandable. Since then I’ve tried getting together with another friend but it didn’t quite work out the evening we planned to do it. This included getting on an hour early and waiting due to my excitement.
Fast forward to the present and we’ve completed two challenge modes with two different groups. On the plus side, we managed to get silver on both runs but it hasn’t quite worked out ranging from the group makeup to the level of commitment from the members. I spent so much time optimising my set, making sure I was fully enchanted and gemmed with food/potions/flasks and whatever else I could do to maximise my level of success but after our last attempt, I’m not sure how viable it is when at least one individual doesn’t at least enchant and gem their gear.
I was adamant about doing this without having to pay for the runs but with the impending removal of the privilege soon, I may have been left coveting the set from afar. I’ve looked at various sites which sell the runs but it’s still difficult to accumulate that much gold. I never expected to be carried though these runs and I’m not happy about paying but it looks like that’s what I’ll have to do.
So I finally used my free boost on a character I’ve (slowly) been levelling at the Darkmoon Faire. Turns out my seven Feasel challenges and monthly round of profession quests weren’t really doing it any more. I had plans of using it on an alliance rogue or at least a leather wearer for this chestpiece but I probably wouldn’t have played her so here’s my newly boosted rogue for the guild.
Now I know why it was so painful for Tome on the Timeless Isle. On the other hand, I didn’t have my usual way of getting down from Ordon Sanctuary so I rode off the cliff – best thing was, I didn’t die! I forgot about the reduced falling damage even if I’m only wearing a boosted set of quest level greens.
I also spent some time with Thrall and Illidan. Maybe we can finally get that legendary achievement for The Ultimate Collection. Kind of annoying really (well, not if I can get the set and blindfold) but since Coolidge managed to loot one of the warglaives ages ago, he won’t get the achievement even though it states ‘owner’ rather than ‘wielder’.
On a more positive note, I’ll be able to open boxes for free. Time will tell if I actually level her past 90 but at least current boxes and under won’t be a problem.
Now all we need is a Monk, Warrior and Death Knight for Classy Blood Elves.
By now you’ve heard quite a lot about the upcoming expansion otherwise known as Warlords of Draenor but few people know what’s planned for the next. Back in 2012, Blizzard COO Paul Sams stated:
“I got the pitch from [Blizzard senior vice president of creative development Chris Metzen] of what they plan for 6.0, and I’m pretty geeked up about it. They already know what they’re going to be doing for multiple expansions ahead.”
This is great news for millions who still play and love this game. So what started as a rumour has now been confirmed.
