Mechagon Follies

While doing a daily quest all of a sudden Rustfeather pops up.  Where are all the people who camp him, I thought.  Luckily very shortly a bunch of people showed up and I didn’t need to die.

 

Unbelievably the annoying crone Scrollsage Nola with her nails on a blackboard voice showed up in Mechagon.  Ack.  I knew she was evil, though, she thinks her colleague  Maokka is too gentle and she wants you to assassinate some goblins.

 

Saturday was particularly frustrating in Mechagon, so I found myself dropping down to work on my level 80 Hunter who is in Northrend.  Northrend can be so pretty after spending time in a junkyard.

Amber Ledge sparkles.

Even Coldarra seems fun.

Fashions of the week

My Monk in a fish head.  I just love the fish heads.

 

A Balance Druid in a nicely transmogged outfit. She might be drooling.  Still a cutie.

 

Wow Classic Atheren, a Hunter, wears those furry hide pieces with aplomb.  You skin it, you wear it.

Her pet Snuggles is now her Best Friend. Awwwww.

I hope one of my Hunters can tame one of these giant crocs in the Wetlands.  They’re so adorable.  Look at this guy, dead, but posing like he wants his belly rubbed.

 

I’m finding interesting old echoes of today’s BFA all over.  Note the Lost Third Fleet of Kul Tiras.

 

ESO

I haven’t attempted the dragon’s lair yet again, but apparently I need to beat that dragon to see southern Elsweyr? Bleh.  While taking a break in Auridon, what should show up in the sky?

 

Alan Wake

I did some reading on strategies for playing Alan Wake.  I did make some progress forward over the weekend.

I came back into the game by the Stuckey guy’s body.  I think that’s who it is.

I meant to look around the yard for a flashlight and gun, thinking I had missed them.  They were never there.  Instead, they were in a little well lit shack.  I ran past the axeman this time around and got into the shack.

Call for help!  There’s an old fashioned phone that doesn’t work.  I think all it does is position you in front of the window so you can see the big piece of construction equipment start up.  Then the thing pushes the shed off it’s foundations with a mighty roar.  On the plus side, you can now see what’s coming your way and you can shoot at it.  Managing to hold the flashlight on the now multiple axe men isn’t as hard as I thought it would be. You can only get one guy at a time, unless you drag them into the light, where they’re considerably easier to kill.

Run, Alan run.

 

There’s no clear path through the woods to higher ground.  It’s worth exploring all the paths for batteries and ammo hidden around the place.  I just have to try to be calm and look around for anything helpful.

You can see your next goal, but how to get there?  Good guess, a generator is somehow involved. Love my flashlight.

If I’d known that there would be axe men galore, I would have gone through the tutorial myself, but silly, silly, I thought he was just a dream.

 

Bartle Test

You’re likely familiar with the Bartle Test which categories you as Explorer, Socializer, Achiever, Killer.   On his QBlog, Bartle links to new player tests that are updated for today’s games.

I can’t find my old test results, but here’s the new one:

  1. Ok guys, let’s do this. We have a solid start with three game bloggers. We start a guild for game bloggers, can be any non PvP server. We run our characters through Classic content one night a week, giving everyone something extra to write about, and no doubt like minded players to run through the world with. Between a couple of my BB characters, I have the money for a guild charter. Go go go! Gamebloggers Anonymous?

    • Avast, Redbeard! It’s a pirates life for me. Blackwater Raiders in BFA, so it could only be Bloodsail Buccaneers in Classic. Atheren is only level 15, so drop anchor and join her if you like!

    • You must have skipped the Handstitched Leather sets! Are you a Leatherworker? Either your guy looks better than you think, or you need more alts. Some characters seem to have better luck than others in all things, including armor drops.

What do you think?
