In Which I fail.

So I had all these goals for Realm First, and didn’t meet any of them. Honestly, there were some bugs and issues, but my hats off to the Realm First Druid on my server (not gonna lie I don’t even know it was).

Even though it took me twice as long as I thought it would to hit 85, I did it.

I’m honestly really proud of myself for managing to hit 85 as quickly as I did. Now if only it was that easy to gear up for raiding.

Healing in WoW is so fucking horrible it’s not even funny. I hate it, and for me to hate healing is something massive. I’ve loved healing ever since I first picked it up. But now it’s … a bit on the excessive side. I enjoy a challenge, but what I don’t enjoy is constantly feeling like I’m doing something wrong, no matter how much I try to change my play style.

My hots just don’t hit hard enough, and my mana regen isn’t good enough.  I’m going OOM before the boss is even at 40%. And I’m watching my heals, and making sure that I’m only doing triage on the dps, but when I can’t take my eyes off the tank for fear of him going splat while I toss the dps or myself a quick heal, there’s something wrong.

I’m betting that either healing will be buffed soon, or dmg output by mobs will be nerfed. Either would be fine with me. I understand not wanting healing to be super easy, but for fucks sake who wants to heal when it makes the game no longer feel like a game and instead something to be dreaded? If something doesn’t change soon though, I don’t know what I’m going to do. Cry quietly in a corner maybe, and then learn how to be a boomkin or something I guess.

I’ll figure it out eventually.

The rush and push to level 85

Honestly, there has been so much going on in game lately that … I haven’t wanted to play at all. But within the last couple of days it started to dawn on me. The Cataclysm is coming. I need to sit down and start preparing for my push to Realm First.

I’ve heard it all, both postive and negative with my goal. But I have to stop and think … that’s just what it is. My goal. If I fail then I fail, but fuck at least I tried.
My character is sitting stocked with 6k gold, almost 50 open bag slots, 40 flasks and buff food to last me forever. I’m so ready to complete this, so ready to make my goal.
I’ll try to take small breaks as I go to post some screen shots, and possibly a vlog or two, but honestly time is of the essence for me.

As my guild always likes to tell me, GOGO!

Shake Ya Tailfeather

After shaking off the Turkey coma I was in last night, I ended up logging into WoW and joining up with a pug for the Starcaller title, which means doing the Observed achievement.

Since the group that I was with, was also looking to do some Hardmodes, I figured why not. This could be my chance to get my Ulduar drake. We went in and honestly, didn’t have much trouble. Doing Iron Dwarf Medium Rare was a bit of a pain in the ass, but we did it after hitting the enrage timer once. The only other problem we’ve had was Mimeron, stupid stupid Mimeron who no longer drops his head. 😦 But over all, the experience was one I would repeat. The group is planning on getting together again tonight to finish up.

On a side note, I’m loving the zone changes. I say pish posh to those people who were scuffing at the changes that WoW was making. Yes, it’s easier to play, but with the easy comes some hard. Because once the Cata raids hit, you’re going to have to CC and pay attention.

Last night, I heard my boy exclaim “SFK is HARD!” and it made me grin. Easy my ass.

I’ve got an update coming soon with some screenshots. So stay tuned. Until then, happy wowing.

Life is nothing but words.

So someone *cough*Drea*cough* pushed me to do NaNoWriMo.  So during the month of November there will hopefully be a lot of updates coming from me. I’m planning on keeping most of my drafts and stuff here. I’m nervous, because I’m horrible with deadlines, but I’m sure I’ll do fine. Right now I’m waiting for 12:00:01 to hit so I can get started while I’ve got all these ideas fresh in my head. It’ll be done in blog format from the POV of a girl named Mackenzie, Mac, for short. She’s kinda geeky, kinda spunky and desperately searching for love. I figure why not draw from not only my own experiences but those of my friends as well? We will have to see what happens.

Things in WoW have been going pretty awesome. My guild is seriously a great group. They’d pretty much give you the shirt off their backs if you really needed it. We’re now working on some of the hardmodes and achievements in ICC. I know that some of them want to give up, but I’m not going to let them. Mainly because I want my damn mount. Haha.

My Bucket List is much smaller now:

  • Finish Loremaster [Kalimdor, Outlands & Northrend]
  • Buy Chopper & Tundra Mammoth [Need tons more gold]
  • Finish The Insane [Finally out of hated with the Goblins, just need to finish everything else]
  • Finish old world reps [Argent Dawn/Cenarion Circle/ZG]
  • Farm for Barron’s mount & the ZG mounts
  • Clean out Tarr’s bank & the Muffin guild bank
  • Do Operation Gnomergon on Ardain
  • Do the Horde equivalent
  • Kill the Lich King
  • Find a group to finish Ulduar
  • Naxx 10 Man Undying or w/e it is
  • Wintersaber Rep [only 169 more turn ins. I CAN DOOO EEET]
  • They Love Me in that Tunnel [Only Neutral, need to grind moar]
  • The Diplomat [This one I can do as well.]

Looks good to me 🙂 Haha, I’m super proud of myself. I’ve got a ton of stuff done, just need to start busting hump. I can do it! Hoorah!

Until later guys, keep writing and playing 😉

No longer Insane

Insane in the Membrane is a feat of strength, not an achievement. Feats are things that you can’t be guaranteed to complete, which is why they’re feats and not achievements. Most of them are actually now impossible to complete, and this feat will join a long list of “you had to be there” moments in WoW time.

The feat isn’t being removed of course, those who have it will retain it, however; some of the requirements are, so it will no longer be able to be completed by anyone who has not already done so.

It’s possible that in some very specific situations where someone has completed the reputations which are being removed, but not others that will still be in the game, that it can still be completed. But it’s something we’re waiting for clarity on, and will let you know as soon as we do.

When I saw that my heart dropped. I had spent so much time and gold working on the reps needed for that stupid achievement. Although now my To Do list and my rep needed list is even shorter, so it makes me happy. Plus I’ll be able to have some gold for Cata since I can sell most of the mats and won’t need them anymore. And even if they decide to retrack and keep the achievement in come Cata, I’ll be able to just start working on it after I get to 85.

But in other news:

Exalted with the Zandalar Tribe

And:

Finally finished with Explore Kalimdor

 

I’ve only got about 30 more quests til I’m done with Loremaster of Kalimdor and than I’ve got to get working on the rest of my AQ rep and Thorium Brotherhood. I need to sit down and figure out the exact numbers and stuff. Sounds like a project for next weekend. Or you know, later this week. Haha.
