I'm now only missing 4 battle pets before I have all of them in game (one of which is the summer pet that is unobtainable atm), excluding 16 that I can't really get from TCG/various collector's editions.

Gotta catch 'em all!

Edit: snap, missing the new pets added in 5.1 of course. A reason to do old raids again! :D

You can buy the summer one... I might just have a spare...

Also, there are at least 12 or so new ones coming with the old raid bosses in 5.1, plus some other new rep ones. I've seen some of the TCG ones on the AH as well.

Nah, I'm talking about the Qiraji Guardling which only spawns during the summer.

God raid night.. a sub ele shammy helped us finally get normal Elegon down, then we one-shot Will, and then went on to get the first boss in HoF. Got several upgrades, and then in LFR after got my second piece of LFR tier. Not a bad night at all.

My girlfriend and me finally got around to making our own pasta yesterday ^^ And it was a success :D It tasted better then the standard one and it was cheaper aswell. Only downside is that it can be quite hard work to prepare it...

Amirya:Why yes, your penis is longer than his because you hit 30k dps in the first 10 seconds. But guess what? That raid boss has a dick bigger than your ego.
Flex:I don't make mistakes. I execute carefully planned strategic group wipes.
Levie:(in /g) It's weird, I have a collar and I dont know where I got it from, Worgen are kinky!
Levie:Drunk Lev goes and does what he pleases just to annoy sober Lev.

Did you tell them about that 1-week vacation you'll need in about 3 months when the next raid tier drops? :D

Yes, my boss is also a gamer (fps player tho), so he doesnt mind me taking leave for gaming, or gaming events, problem with patches are that they arnt fully predictable when they will come.
We even have a ps3 in the break room and we talked a lot about gaming in general on the interview and he wished me luck for Sha progress ^^

LOL, you probably gave him some bragging rights then.. "I just hired the main tank dude that got the world first kill in WoW... "

I still obviously have to use vacation days for it, not just gonna get a few days off for it (unless i can work overtime before or after) but having a boss that understands it rather than thinking its a useless hobby is still very valuable.

halabar wrote:LOL, you probably gave him some bragging rights then.. "I just hired the main tank dude that got the world first kill in WoW... "

He did not know who Method are tho, but he obviously knew about wow and a little bit about that people race for being first (similar to how some people race for achievements or stuff in the fps games)
What I think bought him over at least a little bit if it wasn't secure already was likely that I've been to Dreamhack and Gamescom with Razer and represented the guild there.

Indeed..

Reminds me of a funny story... The company I work for has a name that uses 3 common words. As such, there are numerous other uses outside of very similar names. One day my boss and one of the top company lawyers called me in and asked about this other company that was posting recruiting advertisements using our "name" (I'm the web guy, and since this was showing up in some reporting in Google Alerts, they asked me to figure out what this was about). Turns out it was an EVE guild recruiting "miners". Then I had to explain a bit about guilds in such a game, without giving too much away of what I do in WoW. The lawyer still had to be convinced that we shouldn't go after them for using our "name", lol.

Non-gamers don't understand gamers. Especially older non-gamers.

my girlfriend doesn't understand my love of games at all. she thinks it's a waste of time. when i say, "so i should just sit in front of the tv in my down time?"...i get a dirty look.

actually, most of my friends are not gamers and most don't understand.

on topic. success last night. did sha on lfr...got the tier helm but no axe on extra roll.

did lfr MV second half. got the dps chest from twins and legs from last boss...but had them already so they are going to tanking. finally got the elegon sword on my pally on extra roll.

frustration to follow in frustration thread.

So? It's just a hobby, they don't have to understand it.

I just find the less people talk about it, the more they cover it up... the more it becomes a "dirty little secret". I take the personal stance that the more you talk about something, the more it becomes "normal".
