Got into Gallywix Pleasure Palace, about to take a dip in the pool. Too bad there's nothing to do yet.

I added Quel Delar to my collection, for just 2000 gold. A good price for 10 achievement points, imo!

So tidying the bank on sunday, vendoring the block set of kit that has become a mediocore avoidence set of kit found a cracked egg from the oracles. Probably been their a month as kept forgetting to pick one up.

Pow green proto-drake. Sweet i can now ditch those floppy eared bunny men and make friends with the awesome frenzyheart.

Also did all the achievements in totc. The traitor king is still hard on ten man even with the Nerf to 25 scarabs.

And we used a previous instance in ICC to go straight to the lich king to get neck deep in vile spirit achievement. Yay killing lich king before he casts vile spirits. Took a healer with us who has been away from the game for the last year. I think we are bad people he has no idea of any learning curve for that fight. 10 min into ICC and pow dead lich king. Then again we took a hunter with us who has only done the fight on hardmode and they where shocked that their was no shadowtraps, that you had to keep dpsing valks and that the lich king had basically 0 health.

So not a bad sunday :)

Yay Boasting

I was slotted to heal (2 heal with Korola). I really have no desire for loot at this time, I'm just trying to get used to characters, and see what is what in the 4.0 world.

So, I brought my Shaman (Shojin from my Case study) to heal. His gear is mediocre to abysmal castoff stuff. I decided after 4.0 I don't care for the new 'leaner' enhance (spend a lot of time not hitting buttons :( ) and picked up a couple of healing pieces.

Turns out, that we were able to 2 heal all of lower spire, Fester and Rot. We had some voice chat problems with a player from the Alliance lurkers, so we weren't able to get PP, but we went and did Valithria. I had never healed the Val, I had always been the outside guy. It was a blast, and I was able to keep up with the druid who was healing on Val as well :)

And I made a Troll Druid, and I love him. I got Voodookin form last night, and was a little disappointed with the look of the form, but it will be great fun :)


Gratz, guys. Sounds like a fun night at the end of an xpac.

My success? Got a new laptop to play WoW on; double the RAM from my old one (2GB ==> 4 BG) with a bigger screen (15.4" ==> 17.3") and a way faster processor (2 year old one for an I3). Now I just gotta download all the new patches after installing the original game plus 2 xpacs.

Gotta love black Friday.

Cheers,
sherck

I'd recommend you to go for the new streaming installer instead of installing anything from cd:s at all actually.
I used it the last time I re-installed, and it's really smooth and quick and you can start playing surprisingly fast.

GREAT final raiding weekend for Wrath. We hadn't raided in a while (burn out, boredom, etc.) and someone just needed a few achievements (normal mode stuff) for their drake. So we trounced through Icecrown with half mains/half alts and one or two people who'd barely even touched ICC at all. Surprisingly enough, one shot Lich King, got a slew of people their Kingslayer titles (got mine on my shaman, yay!), got that one person his drake... and then we went and trounced Algalon for another set of Starcaller titles. Hilariously enough... Algalon was harder than anything we did in ICC and resulted in a few people (who didn't know the fight) asking why the tank was dying so much... not realizing just how hard Algalon actually hits. Finished off Algalon in a few tries (in one Big Bang lol), and immediately replaced my Kingslayer title on my shaman to Starcaller. Been wanting that one for a while on my main alt so was really pleased.

Also... it seems that Algalon's one hour timer has been removed? Odd that.

Has it? That's an odd change, given that he's already outgeared enough to make the timer irrelevant for anything but Herald attempts.

Speaking of which, I noticed it's a Feat of Strength now, but I've heard rumors that you can still get it as long as you haven't dinged 81. Is that true, or is it safe to finally disenchant my Herald and Dedicated Insanity sets? If it's still attainable, I'll feel obligated to hang on to them for at least another week in case someone needs a tank for either (also, potentially a decent way to make some cash).

I was panicking originally, trying to get people to hustle their butts during attempts, particularly since we were 9 manning it... but then noticed that the timer was gone and was like "Oh. Well then."

Whenever we go do Algalon someone's connection decides to take a crap for the night.
We live in a society where people born on third base constantly try to steal second, yet we expect people born with two strikes against them to hit a homerun on the first pitch.

I wouldn't worry about it now anyway. No timer means you've got plenty of time.

Meh. Our last raids will be taking a tour of TBC raids, something fun and different.

We did Ulduar the day before Thanksgiving. Our Paladin healer had to stop playing while we were working on it when it was released. He came back when we were progressing through ICC so he never got to see Yogg. So we did a quick push to Yogg for him, and luckily enough I got my 5th piece of Tier 8 10 man from Yogg so I can officially be done with that place. Also how come the paladin healing belt doesn't actually match the tier color?

I wouldn't count on it, as the Tribute system was removed. No attempts counter = no Tribute to Insanity/Dedicated.

I haven't actually tried Dedicated Insanity, but that's the impression that I get.

A little bit on purpose, I had a jar of lemonade that was growing old, so I decided to mix it with whisky to see if it would taste better. It was WIN.
