Writers block… Or the post that needs to be more than one post
Greetings friends, bloggers, and crazy readers. I’m hoping your weekend was as good as mine. In preparing to write this post I had jotted down several notes throughout the week, but never got to putting them together into a coherent post until this weekend… Yeah, I procrastinate sometimes, what of it? as I was digesting the notes I had accumulated i realized that this would either be one gigantic metric crap ton of information, or I could break it up into three or four posts over the next week. Of course, this was before my epic evening Saturday night.
So, on the downside, you don’t get to hear about my “away from wow, wow time” post about the mobile AH, or my “transmog for dummies” post, or even my ” Thrall: Twilight of the Aspects review. ” but that’s okay, Saturday was my most eventful day in wow. Period. Sort of.
Let me back up a few days to Thursday night. As Fik stated on Friday, we rolled through our old stomping grounds tearing up Gruel and Magtheradon, then ripping apart Kara to get my gun, jerk wolf finally gave er up! That got us both fired up to do some old raid content. We sent out the word, and were rewarded with all of the FortheHorde crew showing up, along with some longtime friends, Ace from Repgrind, Lyssianna from Dots and Hots, and Orange Slice from Orangeslice> Other Sodas. We destroyed the place on ten man mode. Honestly, I had never seen the content, so I was super excited to FINALLY down the Lich King. Yes, we did ICC. I know, I know, its only an expansion late, it’s not like I had never seen Black Temple…(I haven’t finished that place…ever.) Or the Eye…(I hadn’t downed KT until Sunday)… but you get the point. It was something that needed to be done, and we did it. That’s how we roll. After destroying Lich King, we tromped down to the Obsidian Sanctum and got Pie his drake for OS3D. That was a blast, and one I will be doing weekly until I get that drake, and weekly still until all of my boys get it as well. I am a mount whore.
Speaking of Mount whores, I got mount number 119 yesterday, finally earning exalted with my guild and picking up my ugly scorpion of doom. He;s pretty cool, but he’s no raven lord. Sunday was our good friend Spiffie’s birthday, so we rolled into the Eye to down KT. Good times. We gathered a guildie, along with Pie, and rolled through like we owned the place. Low and behold, we DID own the place. No Ashes of Alar, but it was still a blast.
Now, I know this seems like such a “cop out” post. Yes, I had a blast this weekend playing wow like I hadn’t in a very long while. In fact, the last time I played as much with a group WAS Burning crusade… maybe a little bit in wrath, but not nearly this much during the cataclysm. Ironically, this was the expansion that really drove me forward lore wise. I loved the books written during this expansion. The Shattering and Thrall:Twilight of the Aspects were two amazing reads. I flew through them both.
I’m excited to see what Panda brings to the mix. I love the casual way things are headed, they fit my playstyle. I look forward to being able to solo more old world content. As a hunter, soloing old stuffs is fun! That’s how this orc gets most of his transmog stuff. So, look forward to some very fleshed out posts in the coming weeks. I’ve got some good ones on tap between now and the launch of panda.
Time for bed,
