Yeah for a while we split into two mumble channels and when one of us would finish ours we'd pop in and shit talk the other team. It's probably one of my favorite encounters.

The achievement makes it a lot more interesting :D You have to be done quite a lot early to give the raid time to use the hooks to get up on the central platform, then one final member of each team hits the lever and joins the rest of the raid on the other side.

Took Second Place in the Fan Vote today at a Chili Cook off for my White Chicken Chili.

I realized, that at a chili cookoff, judges, and "chili purists" hate White Chicken Chili. It's the devil to them. it's not Beef, and fat, and kidney beans, and all the rest of the crap that they feel makes real chili. The crowd loved it. I went with 12 qts worth, and left with less than 2, and had great comments from everyone there.

I only agreed to do the cook off for my boss, because it was the kick off event for her new local business group, and all the proceeds went to a local business group that works to make sure that any woman who has breast cancer, can get the bras, artificial breats, wigs, head wraps, etc... that they need. So, Cancer, and local. I can get behind that.

My wife made White Chicken Chili the other night and I love the stuff. Good on you for helping make breast cancer a little easier to deal with. :)

Mine ends up looking a little "muddy", because I use Rotisserie Chicken, Roasted Garlic, and a few other things to change it up.

I use a tomato base sauce and poach the chicken breasts in that and only shred them towards the end.

Although we've started getting beef mince from the butcher (they grind it right in front of you and it is much, much leaner) instead of the supermarket. It is actually slightly cheaper than the "premium" beef mince at the supermarket.

I thought you were quitting. :P

Grats, though. :) We got Blackfuse this week (after much pain), so we're getting there.

Agility stuff actually started to drop finally too - I picked up two trinkets, a warforged belt, a wrist, and a neck all this week. The trinkets are Assurance and the multi-strike one, which I think are the top two for BM (I think - hard to find info on that right now though).

On the other hand, as far as I can tell neither Protector nor Vanq tokens exist in the loot tables for SoO. *laugh*

For a night or two yeah I actually had thoughts about quitting. A lot of it was pent up frustration from RL that carried over to the game and add a bad night of raiding to the mix and yeah.

Did a couple of pet battles last few days. Finished up the northrend one (finally) and blasting through the cata ones aswell. Had to level a few pets but then got through the pandaria grand masters aswell (also got my hat ^^ ) and i`m also done with the pandaren spirits and beat the little guy with the stupid dino.

The goal this week: figure out how bad I am at the celestial tournament and beat the beasts of fable ^^

After last week being kind of a slow week with most spent re-clearing, guild managed to pull it all together for 3 new kills this week! Shamans+Naz heroic last night, with Malkorok tonight with our under-geared 3rd tank (other tank wasn't available), and managed a #1 prot ranking for the Malk progression kill :P .

Spoils looks like a decent fight, will defo be looking at him a bit more before the week is done!

Flex is being generous to the Pally so far this week. 2hd from Sha, tier pieces from General and Thok (already had the gloves from Celestia, but still), and I still need to run the first three bosses of P2.

Here's hoping the Lock gets that lucky.

we got to our progression fight before break last night, including a wipe on sha (had people not spreading for rising pride i think it is? im a tank so i dont have to worry about that :P) and on galakras, got to P2 finally after trying a new strat, which is hell on me as the ground tank but seems to work well

it is just our shaman healer and me staying down, everyone else goes up in the towers to just zerg them down, but the problem with it is by the time the second tower is done, i am tanking something like 10 mobs and we are getting out second shaman about that time...its just a mess so a little more tweaking that is being discussed and we should have galakras down, and on to the jugg!

Praise Celestia for giving you gloves, cuz she hasnt given me shit. =P


As for me, we should be starting normal modes in a couple of weeks, at least for the first 4 bosses, then continue doing Flex 2 and 3, and hopefully Flex 4 soon. Our next fight in Flex is spoils.
