Oh so busy!

This weekend has been mad crazy. Really no time to play any WoW or even play the beta. Just busy busy busy. I did enter the Spectral Safari that I was talking about last update. It was a lot of fun and I learned A LOT about card play and attitude and such. Past Times was a great place, I’ve never been in a place like that before so it was cool to be there and just look around. There were 30 people, it was … really crowded. Especially because there were 2 other card game things going on. Some Magic thing and then Yu-Gi-Oh. Neither of which I play, or think I’m going to play.

Anyway, paid my 20$ entry fee and ended up with a red mage deck. I was excited because I had watched Ben play a mage deck before, so I figured that I could at least mimic some of his moves. The first couple of rounds I did so horrible. The third round was closer, and I won the fourth round. I was so proud of myself! I had actually beat someone. The win really boosted my confidence in myself, so for round five and six, I also managed to win. I went into round seven confident. But got my ass handed to me. I learned so much and met some new people. Which for me was a big thing. I was super proud of myself for that. I’m also proud of myself for placing 22nd out of 30. Not nearly as good as I could have done, but for my first time I’ll take it.

I was going to buy another class starter deck, but didn’t because they didn’t have the one I wanted. I’ll have to check the card place around here and see if they have one next week. I also found out that they’re going to be doing battlegrounds after GenCon at Past Times on Sundays. So I think I’ll make it a goal to hit at least 2 a month. Just to get better. I want to take this kinda seriously, but it’s kinda expensive to start. This class starter really helped though. Because it gave me a good boost of cards and I’ll be able to make legal decks by using them.

Switching gears from the card game to the beta. I’m going to start running new classes/race combos up to level 10, and documenting it. I’ll also work on leveling Tarr and just looking for bugs. It’ll give me some focus, and something to kind of look forward too.

My birthday is in 3 days. I’m going to be 24. Someone should buy me a spectral tiger ;P Since I didn’t win it today at the Safari.


A new start

Today’s Wednesday. Wednesday’s are fairly predictable days for me. I’m usually off of work. Have PNG and then go to The Department with Andrea for dinner. Then settle in to lead my 10 man raid.

Today was no exception except for the fact that before dinner I went over to Ben’s to learn how to play WoW:  TCG (World of Warcraft Trading Card Game), it wasn’t too bad. I’ve gotten the feeling of the game down a bit, now to just tighten it up a bit more before I hit up the tournament on the 25th. I’m not expecting to place 1st or anything, hell I’m not even expecting to make it through 1 round, but I’m excited to be trying it out. It’s a step in the right direction for me.

I also filled out my FAFSA form today. I’m going to go back to school. I’m nervous about it, but I really need to do it. For myself more than anything else.  I should be finding out the information on that soon. *crosses fingers* I can’t wait.

Anyway, so I came home and started up the 10 man, well the raid had already started thanks to my awesome guild. I just kinda had to come in and do my thing. We had to call it early because someone had to go, whatever it happens. I happen to then at that time check my phone and I see that I’ve got this email:

Since there’s been lot of fake emails going out and such I decided to double check it with my account. And low and behold there in my account info was:
I seriously thought I was going to die. I started dancing around my house, screaming and jumping. So excited. The biggest thing for me with Cata was that I didn’t want it to be spoiled for me. I wanted to see everything first hand myself, so now I get to spoil it for myself! I’m seriously so excited. I’m planning on leveling Tarrina a little bit, but ultimately I want to play around with the new classes. Goblins & Worgen and omfg Troll druids yes please!

So for awhile most of my blog will contain beta stuff. I’ll try not to spoil too much, and each post will be labeled a beta post so that people can just scroll right by if they’re not interested.  Anyway, that’s pretty much all that’s going on right now. I’m currently installing the game, and it’s taking for-ev-er … well that or maybe I’m just impatient.

Two final pictures for tonight:

I am so excited 😀 OMFG I can’t wait!

If there is anything anyone wants to know, or screen caps anyone wants me to grab. Let me know 🙂 I’m more than willing to take some for you. All you gotta do is ask!

Until later,

EDIT: I just realized that I got the beta opt in for my other account. The one without any 80’s on it 😦 This means I’ll mainly be focusing on the low level starting zones and such. Oh well. GO GO troll druid, Goblin mage and Worgen what the flux ever, ooh and a holy cow ;P Ret bull gives you wings. LOL Yeah.

EDIT 2: I”m dumb and didn’t see that it flagged for my whole bnet account, not just 1 account on the bnet. So yay transferring Tarr over!
