Back in Action

Busy busy busy still.  My faithful spammers have not been stopping by, tsk.  I guess if I write something their little bots go crazy and rush over to spread the spamula.

Finally got back to playing WOW.  Just in time for the “Halloween” holiday Hallow’s End.  I am all over that puppy and even have all the pvp requirement ones complete.  I’ll get this whole set with ease.   The Headless Horseman “dungeon” is terribly silly and boring.  Decent enough rewards the first shot of the day.  I haven’t gotten the agility drop yet.  Have my broom!  Very cute.  I love the black cat who looks like my own cat.  And it flies on a little broomstick when you fly! Sooo cute!

I asked my brother in law about scenarios this weekend, and he went in a couple with me.  I’m not so sure if I like them, they seem pretty variable, but again the rewards are good.  I may have been on a bit of a binge and have been in maybe 8 different ones now.

My nephew says when you do Raid finder you end up doing about four of the bosses in a Raid, not the whole thing which I pictured taking 3 or four hours.  Snoozefest.  And honestly the only reason it takes so long at all is because the bosses apparently have like a million hit points.  So you’re there like a maroon with 39 other people whacking at these things forever?  I’m going to try it to say I did it, but come on, couldn’t you think of something more challenging than that?  Is my thought.



World of Warcraft Patch 5.3

Escalation patch

You probably thought now that Children’s Week is over I wouldn’t be doing anymore PVP because I’m PUNY and a WEENIE.   That isn’t the way I work.  I know I can get good at this, so my method is to start a new character, toss them in and learn the battlegrounds, learn techniques, and what can help scoot my little beaner along.   Yippee kay ay, boneheads.

That said, this patch is all about the escalation of the war between the Horde and the Alliance!  Yo ho.  Because there is general interest in a couple of new games that will be PVP oriented (Camelot Unchained and Elder Scrolls Online) I think Blizzard decided to ratchet things up a bit.  It is also possible their new game thought to be revealed at Blizzcon this year will be a big PVP fest because first person shooters are so popular.   Whatever.

I’ll have to look at the patch notes in depth to see how they affect my little PVP punching bag.

There are only two things I haven’t tried in the game yet, Raids and Scenarios.  I think scenarios will be easy enough.  I’m reluctant to start Raids just because the time sink of them is so tremendous for what reward?  Have a level 71 Paladin I thought would be a good character to toss into a Raid.  She’s just cooling her heels waiting her chance.  I’ll stick someone else in a scenario and see what I think since apparently scenarios are the flavor favorite of Blizzard developers at this time.

I shall report back when I have gone in.  Glug glug.
