I guess this is a success:

When I rolled my DK, I rolled her as Blood DPS (when Frost was the tanking spec); I kept her as Blood DPS until Blood became the official tanking spec; then I moved her to Frost.

I made it my goal to not tank at all this expansion - I levelled Amirya solely through questing as Protection, but no dungeons/scenarios/etc.

Yet somehow, I wound up Blood tanking some instances on Zivai. Apparently, despite me having never ever ever ever played a Blood tank, even in the "fucking around" periods, I'm still a very good tank. Well, so says the guildies who ran with me this weekend.

Which, I guess, is a success.

Seriously, it is like we have skipped spring and jumped straight to June.

Today was the underground ruins dailies, and as a result it seems no one was flying over to the Horde side, because all three rares were up both times I visited. Long story short - I have a Brawler's Guild invite. :D

Edit: Aaand now I'm rank 4. That stuff's addictive, I had to force myself to stop so I can go to bed.

Finally made it to 90. Not really done anything yet bar a single scenario, looking forward to discovering the rest of Panadaria, really enjoyed leveling this time round.

Really can't believe my luck with Sha. Three characters all have tier legs (and I don't do sha that regularly).

Usually I do not try to solo old raids with my DK, ive been soloing MC on my warrior for Garr's half of the legendary for over a year and a half. I guess because I went through all the content when it was current and spent months in them learning then farming I just havent had the desire. Ive got several guildies who farm for the old mounts solo and last week I figured I would try KT, since he was such a pain to learn back then. Solo'd him with ease and didnt get a mount, which based off my luck with Garr did not surprise me at all :)

Anyhow, I get up Christmas morning and open presents with the kids and play with their new toys and such. Right before lunch I decide I will run a few dailies on my DK (kill 2 rares in shieldwall area, no invite drops). So I am done and one of my buddies is on we are discussing old content and I figure I will go do KT/Kara real quick before I go back to my family. Kara, no mount which is no shocker...

Fighting KT this week I nearly die twice due to conflag disorentate fun... So KT goes down I click to auto loot and to my amazement Ashes of Alar.... I... What... WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOT... I tell my bud, he is thinking I am full of crap. I hearth back to town, after checking 3 times the mount was in my bag. Right click to learn it and BAMMMM Achievment (which I did not know existed). Friends like, so I guess you were not lieing huh?

Merry Christmas!

2pc for the ret offspec. Of course, the pieces I actually NEED elude me yet again *shakes fist*

EDIT-addentum: Just went to wowprogress on a whim, and I realized that:
a) Many of my favorite former guildies have found a home inside a nice guild, alongside another former member, and are currently humming along at 6/6 3/6. Not bad after the guild exploded one month ago.
b) And what's more, the guild where the three asses that backstabbed us back in the summer went, is currently stuck at 6/6 1/6 for the better part of a month, and the biggest ass left the guild, while the two others haven't show up in weeks. Up your, assholes! (Yes, I'm THAT bitter...)
When that day comes, seek all the light and wonder of this world, and fight.

that is actually being discussed. it came out around the same time that they were saying any 2h/1h weapon could be transmogged into one with similar swing motions.

legendaries are being discussed but probably for a future patch.

Nooska - Yes.

Brawler Donnan!

I killed Zenshar, I was totally surprised - it went down way faster than I expected from previous attempts.

Got my priest alt geared for LFR. I've really enjoyed going shadow for dailies and some 5-mans, but am keen to try disc healing in LFR. I have no idea what to expect though, with no healing experience beyond getting to 80 as disc. I healed a couple of Sha of Anger pugs and it was utter chaos. Disc priest healing does seem intriguing though, with so many different spells and abilities. I get the impression healing in general is more complex and cerebral than tanking or dps; at least, it seems less reliant on following a set rotation.

New guild, raiding 25 mans again. And I'm finally not in a position of responsibility (that goes beyond the responsibility of being on point as the tank I guess).

Anywho, on my test raid we killed Grand Empress for the first time!
