Midsummer 2014

6

As the nights get cooler on this side of the world, what better time to warm yourselves against a virtual flame? Midsummer Fire Festival is just revving up and although there’s nothing new to do if you’ve completed all your achievements already, you can still pick up a Crown of the Fire Festival if you’ve previously completed A Thief’s Reward. If you’re like me, you destroy yours every year just so you can save a bag slot.

This year, Cool was kind enough to create a banner just for the occasion so check out the one on his site if you’d like to see a higher resolution.

Oh and if you haven’t picked up a Qiraji Guardling yet, they’ve already been spotted outside the gates and ruins of AQ.

Happy Easter

I’m not sure if anything is in the cards for this years Noblegarden event but whether there is or there isn’t, I’d like to wish everyone a wonderful and peaceful Easter celebration.

A very special thanks to Coolidge for illustrating this event for me. He did a great job capturing Cymre (in my chosen outfit) and I had fun adding these background elements. As always, if you’d like to see a higher resolution, check out his blog.

It just dawned on me that I didn’t get to try any Easter themed chocolate this year so please have an extra egg or bunny for me.

Mask Acquired

After years of trying to get the mask from the Love is in the Air boss, I finally received the Vile Fumigator’s Mask in my Heart-Shaped Box. Best of all it was on Cymre – my mog queen. According to WoWHead, it’s a 6% drop but that seems higher than it really is.

I was excited to use it after seeing all the people around me getting one so I wanted to try it on Cool until I realised I had to use it on an enemy. Unfortunately, he was in the shrine while I was on the Isle so I was going to try the mask out later but I forgot about server maintenance.

For now, I’ll leave you with these pics I took last year.

Hmm, I wonder what sort of costume I can create for this… hopefully I can pull something together from her wardrobe without having to farm anything. Too bad it’s not moggable though.

Now if only I could loot the rocket as well… might be another few years on that one with a 0.03% drop.

In other news, I’ve collected another rare item from Timesink Isle.

Glinting Pile of Stone

I suspect the Eroded Cliffdwellers felt a sense of impending claustrophobia after kiting one into the cave the other night. All it took was three more kills to get my Glinting Pile of Stone.

Hallelujah, only four to go!
