Why Blizzard?

When Coolidge first told me about the maces in the Siege of Orgrimmar, I admit I was jealous – just as he predicted. I’m just not sure why they had to have strength on them. Personally I think intellect would have been a better choice but maybe that’s just me. Over the past few months I had pretty much forgotten about their existence until a couple of days ago when I was updating one of my old transmogs in MogIt.

Wishing we had bubble wands to use (especially as disc priests) is nothing new for me. I’ve mentioned it a few times over the years so when I thought about my chibi commission by Sleepingfox, how could I not include one?commission - watermark

I had a pretty clear idea of how Cymre should look including all the components I love about my priest and things I associate with my character. Looking at her now, I think the only thing missing is a pet.

Over the last week or so, I’ve been seeing how close I can get to Jakur’s spawn spot using Falling Flame. You may have seen my other video about one of my earlier trials but if you’d like to know how not to use Falling Flame with Levitate, let me enlighten you.

Since then, I’ve tried using it with my soulstone but by then I only had a couple of charges left. That means I might end up farming another one.

I’m really curious to know how many times I’ve killed this rare because I still haven’t managed to get his drop. I mean seriously Blizz, how many times do I need to kill this guy?

WTB better RNG!

To top it off, I’ve had no luck upgrading either of my weapons. I’ve been doing the last section of SoO and was surprised to go into a fresh run on a Saturday (even if we zoned in staring at the first boss). It was going fine until we reached Garrosh. There were a few issues with the tank positioning Garrosh all over the place and some Iron Stars wiping most of the raid. We ended up killing him with three determination just after I was punted up the wall on the second last attempt.

The things you do just to upgrade a weapon…

Here’s hoping my luck changes next week.

Now that we have a release date, there are still a number of pets I’ll need to level if I plan to use them in the Celestial Tournament.  Hopefully it won’t take too long, provided I can get some more rissoles and hotdogs before then. The good new is, all the pets are rare, unlike the random collection I received on the PTR. Although it will be a little sad to say goodbye to the ones I may never own on live like the Vanilla CE pets and Tyrael’s Hilt. You know, I never realised how funny Lil’ Tyrael is when he falls asleep.

A couple of days ago, we were farming Cool’s shoulders in Dragon Soul when this achievement popped so not only did we get a brand spanking achievement, Morchok dropped his shoulders too.

Then earlier today I ventured into Diablo III for a bit and it really showed I haven’t played for a while (over a year) because I was right-clicking and dropping hydras everywhere and that was just for starters.

To top off the day we did a couple heroic dungeons where I was highest on the damage metre as Disc for one of the dungeons :P

It must be that time of year again when I find myself in the same predicament and it’s not even spring! I was having trouble looting all the items to sell during my runs though Kara, TK and SSC but the last straw came when I was doing an exploration run of the third room in the Troves of the Thunder King and couldn’t finish looting a Golden Chest because my bag was full.

Turns out I had left a Burial Trove Key in the Golden Chest but the dilemma was deciding which item to delete from my bag. This wasted about 15secs trying to decide which object I could live without. In the end I discarded my Ancient Amber which I’ve had since early Cata but in all honesty, I haven’t really used since Dragon Soul.

So now my bank and backpacks are all upgraded with Royal Satchels which helps but I still needed to go through my entire inventory. This included a couple of pieces in my Void Storage and bank since a few turned out to be look-alike pieces, particularly the cloaks.

I was able to free up 18 spots which is great and I even changed my shadow mog to my Cymre Jones outfit since it frees up a bit more room. It’s just too bad I’m using a staff instead of my stake/torch or journal and you still need to show the shoulders which is a shame (not that she really uses them for her outfit). Plus I was holding all my Battle-Stones on my alt since she’s doing more of the pet battling these days but I’m suddenly tempted to hold them on my main. I might just wait for the patch though.

My latest big purchase turned out to be another TCG pet after seeing the price drop low enough in the AH. It feels so great to mark another one off the list. No fragments in Ulduar though this week.
