So the red circle of death is now the red circle of ouch-ies and the slimey things have boo-boo aura damage, down from bloody hell!

My Mother always told me that whining and crying would not get me what I wanted. Clearly another case of her lying to me.

They did not nerf it enough, I fear. I went through 3 co-tanks today before we killed it, each quitting after only one (not very bad) wipe. It does feel an insane fight to tank (or do anything, I suspect) for the first few times, just like Lei Shen did.

Went to clear a few bosses in 10N after doing Flex. Trash takes for fucking ever; I figure DPS is being lazy after clearing Flex, and we're all joking around on vent anyway.

No one notices we're set to 25N until the boss is at 50%. Hilarity ensues. End up wiping at the end of the slime phase, possibly because healers were laughing too hard.

I must admit that I have not tanked it yet. I've run it as Ret and on my Shadow Priest - the latter was the wipe fest where I out healed a Pally healer and all I was doing was casting the occasional PoM and Vamp Embrace.

Until they make it a plain tank and spank it'll be a problem fight because of the dps types who couldn't find their WASD keys even if you hit them in the face with that end of the keyboard.

I honestly expect the three tank method to filter into LFR soon.
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 zoned into a Shaman with 2 stacks on my priest and talked them into this when it turned out there was a 3rd tank available. Smooth as peaches.

Only problem is, it's contingent on there being either a 3rd tank or someone with a taunt and a brain that the healers can work with.

The amount of QQ that comes from the Censer on the island has really started to amuse me, I play on a PvE realm. I had a guy send me bnet friend requests calling me skill-less and mocking me for about 30 mins. And I had another guy instantly start calling me names and being a pre-teen for not understanding how I'm the horrible player.

Retirement doesn't feel too bad with an Hearthstone Beta! I'm enjoying the fuck out of the Pally deck atm. Got BOTH an Equaliser (all creatures are at 1Stam, which comboes with Consecrate to kill all evenmy creatyres) AND a Blessed whatsisname (double a creature's Strenght) in early packs. Boy those two can litteraly win a game!
When that day comes, seek all the light and wonder of this world, and fight.

So I've been busy marathoning season 8 of Supernatural on Netflix. My roommate is getting sucked into watching it with me (he's only missed half an episode, and that's 'cause he was out of the house when I started it), and is pretending to hate it, but he will get up from his desk and sit on/by the couch, and just watch it. :lol:

So stroll over to Theck's blog and start in on the latest and greatest. Now, PvP is a huge thing for me and I really enjoy world pvp more so than arenas/rbgs cause there's a side to it that I find thrilling.

However, the reason I'm here is, while I play on a PvE realm, I got into a group on Mal'ganis. The difference in QQ'ing abilities between PvE and PvP realms really made me chuckle. On my home realm, they complain in general chat for hours while the PvP one, they say 'no life nurds' or whisper you saying they're reporting you. And I generally just move on after killing someone that I clearly got the jump on but if you jump me and I win or beat you 2v1, I'll drop my Flag of Ownership. But when you call me a 'd-bag' and berating me in local chat while you're laying on the ground (still on Mal'ganis btw), which causes me to drop the Flag and simply say, 'now you can call me one' and then you go off in whispers calling me every swear word in multiple languages and stating you're reporting me...well.../popcorn.



I had another experience on my realm in which the guy comes at me and I have a nice 15 min long civil conversation with him all the while he's calling me a pre-teen and other stuff and it ends with finally reading what I was saying and doing a /salute because I mentioned I was military and then it's a 15 min long whisper fest from him talking about his family's military history.






But seriously though, Theck, /tips hat, thanks for the trip down memory pvp lane, lol.

So this is both amusing and frustrating, but there's no "post your bewilderments!" thread, and it's not rage-inducing frustrating.

I'd been scheduled for some appoinments on 9/27, but I sent two notices to the medical team that they needed to be rescheduled due to family emergency. That was the date of my mother's surgery. I sent one initially that was read, but when it wasn't rescheduled, I sent a second notice. That, too, was read.

Today's note from them.

"Our records indicate you missed your PULM Study Visit Consult Sleep and PULM Overnight Oximetry appointments that were scheduled on 9/27/13..."


Really? The two requests to reschedule, with the notice of "family emergency" wasn't hint enough?

I was planning on writing some sort of goodbye to my beloved Queldan, but as I began writing the intro, I just kept going and going, so I'm just gonna break it up in parts and post them here, then find someplace to host the whole crap :-p

Chapter 1: Bleeding Sun

Quel’danas was in flames once again, filled with the crackling of fire and the wails of the dead and dying. The quel’dorei warrior took a minute to survey her surroundings, shield and sword at the ready. The stench of corpses was unmistakable, despite the battle being less than a day old. Then again, the very nature of the enemy had made the rotting stench all but a given.

Arthas. The human prince had gone mad by all accounts, raising a gigantic army of undead from his kingdom and striking through the Eastern Kingdoms like a rot-encrusted knife, striking all the way to Quel’thalas. The Rangers had fought as best they could, but it had all been pointless in the end – all that was left was to save as many as possible.

And maybe that would not even be enough. Beyond the horror of seeing fine warriors rise in shambling undeath, beyond the unpossible stench, both physical and magical, one simple, overriding feeling had struck the woman. It felt as if her soul had been hollowed out, drained of all will and drive. She looked back at the warriors alongside her, and their blue eyes spoke the same truth: something was gone, and none of them could say just what; apart from how empty it made them feel.


“Captain? What is going on?” He was the youngest of the soldiers, barely out of the Academy. In kinder times, she would have chided him for trembling like a soaked kitten, but today, she didn’t have time to care.

“I don’t know, Private. It seems we got lucky – I had heard about the entire Undead horde heading to the island. It seems we made a mistake believing they’d circle and come from the North, and along the beaches East and West. The main force probably struck the southern wall.

-Across the channel? There’s no way anyone could cross without a boat of some sort.

-Private, we’re not talking about orcs or trolls. These things don’t breathe. Coast seems clear. If we play our cards right, we could reach Magister’s Terrace without much opposition – if their objective is indeed the Sunwell, we could hole up there a while. Maean! How are the children? Could we make it to the Terrace?”


She looked back at her second-in-command who was trying to play babysitter best as he could for the twenty-something kids they had found in the island nursery. They were children of guardsman, magisters and all kind of important people that had given the right to stay on the isle while their parents performed their duties.


“We won’t run there, Anael, not with the youngest, but they’re mostly okay, just stress- Ow! watch the hair, Nalyna!”
Maean chuckled a bit as he gently undid the little girl’s grip on his brown hair. Anael couldn’t quite suppressed a smile until something pulled at her tabard.

-Mommy? Is everything O.K.? You don’t look well.”


The little boy looked up at her and she was startled not to see much fear – perhaps he had not realized how bad the situation seemed to her adult eyes. Anael Feathwing, High Guard of Quel’thalas gave in to a moment of respite and hugged her boy.
“It’s O.K. honey. Mommy’s just busy with work, is all. Stay with Uncle Maean until I’m done, okay? Off you go!”

When the boy was back with the other kids, she refocused on the street ahead. A couple hundred yards separated them from the path that rose to Magister’s Terrace. With its gates knocked down and used as barricade, that was certainly the most defensible building apart from the Sunwell chambers themselves, and was isolated enough to not become collateral target on the way to anything.

The shore and pier was another option, but that implied hoping the boats hadn’t sunk yet, and that there wouldn’t be –
A gigantic roar exploded above Anael as the sun died above her. The children began screaming in unison and it was all she do to look up to see.

Bones. FLYING BONES, enough to completely blot out the sun. When its leathely wings bflapped lazily in the evening air, she realized what she was looking at – Arthas had not stopped at raising humans.

“Dragons. By the Sunwell, they have undead DRAGONS?”
As if she wasn’t afraid enough of the flying bat-creatures out on the open sea. If dragons began unloading on the meager vessels the pier held, they would be butchered or drowned. Well, it was better than being murdered and raised as undead, but not by such a big margin. Anael took her helm that had stood on her side since they had hidden in the nursery.

“Gentlemen, it seems our course is clear – we must head to Magister’s Terrace and reinforce whatever position we have there. With the blessing of the Sunwell, we might be able to mount scouting parties to find and gather survivors with us once our position is strong enough.”

She began outlining objectives and strategic information. There were too few of them to mount a proper running trail for the children – they would have to stay in one tight group all the way to the Terrace’s safety.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

She had been a fool, and the children – her son - would die for her foolishness.

This was not a battle of conquest. It was flat-out genocide. The undead had spotted them from the air and the onslaught had begun only halfway to the Terrace. Maean’s screams had only begun to fade and she dared not think what must have happened to him when the ghoul had knocked him to the ground.

At least the fastest kids had reached the Terrace and friendly faces had sprung out of the gate to haul the children inside. The familiar smell of sulfur heralded a barrage of fireballs that whistled past her, reducing the fastest monstrosities to cinders. A wicked smile crossed her face as she faced the endless waves that followed. Backup, at least.


“To me, guardsmen! Slow retreat, shields up! Nothing past us until we reach the gates!”

Only two soldiers were still alive – the young private and Tandron. Nothing much to work with, but maybe that would be enough.
And then what? She wondered. The undead won’t stop when the gates are closed. They’ll wear us to death. The Terrace won’t be a fortress – it’s going to be a deathtrap.

And it was all she could think – the first zombie crashed against her shield and all three began hacking away at the shambling horrors, stepping back so slowly it felt like they did not move at all.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

“Waaaaaaait! Mother’s still out there!”


The little boy fought with all the might a six-year-old could muster, but the Magister was too much for him. Still he held fast to the edge of the door, craning his neck to see the battle ahead.

"-How many of those things are there? I’m running low on arrows!

-Get to the armory then! And bring some spare for us! And mana potions for Silverspear!

-Take the children with you! Barricade them in the Grand Magister’s Asylum!


High Guard Featherwing held a good fight, but the sheer overwhelming numbers of undead threatened to clip them at any time. There, the guard on her left had fallen. Everything would crumble from there on. Hamaren Lightwood made peace with his death, and knocked another arrow.

And yet the impossible seemed to happen – in the thight walkway to the terrace, the undead would not manage to outflank the pair of guards, and their fury seemed sufficient to hold the tide at bay.

"Silverspear, they need to break off! Give them something!"

Another fireball flew, and Hamaren felt again the slow hum of magic gather behind him. But it kept growing. And growing.

"High guard! Get ready to -!"

Silence fell on the battlefield, replaced a second later by a brilliant flash. An immense wall of fire crossed from the Terrace’s wall all the way to the cliff on the Western side of the walkway. The two guardsman finished off the ghoul that had mostly made it intact, then made a break for the gate.

"-High Guard!

-Report!” Anael shouted, panting. “And thank you.

-Captain Hamaren Lightwood, m’lady. We have fortified this position a little over an hour ago. There’s nince of us, plus fifty civilians and Magister Silverspear right here. By the Sunwell, what is going out out there?

-Hell has come to take us, Captain.” Anael kept looking back at the wall of flame. A few undead dared the fire, but their screams made it clear that they would not make it through. She looked back at Silverspear, who was straining to maintain the enchantment. It seemed they were on the clock, as it were. “We need to tear that door down!

-WHAT? But how do we get out?

-We’ll think about that later – first think about not letting those things in! Have we got explosives?” Hamaren nodded with his head. The wheels in Anael’s head began spinning, taking stock of what she had available until her mind hit a wall. “The children?

-Safe and sound in the Asylum, High Guard.

-Prepare the explosives, and keep providing Silverspear all the mana she needs.” She took off her gloves and went for the gunpowder barrel. “Come on, everyone pick all the gunpowder they can! Move!”
When that day comes, seek all the light and wonder of this world, and fight.

Was trying to email a coworker about Supernatural, but someone else in the company in IL shares the same name, so it was sent to her instead (the email system blows hard).

Whoooops.

But turns out, she loves the show too, and we're discussing past seasons and tonight's premiere now :lol:

The legs are the actual piece of armor to protect against blows. The pants are the thin material worn underneath the legs to prevent chafing. Pants are a predecessor of underwear. *knowledgeable nod*

Actually, I was wondering that too, and figured maybe he just got two tokens.
