I aim to misbehave.

Monday, BigBearButt posted about his anger and disappointment with Blizzard for how they’ve handled the reputation armor pieces. Basically, you need to get your rep up to a certain level and then spend Justice or Valor to buy those pieces.  I, myself, felt this very thing when Halk hit 90 and I started looking for ways to upgrade my gear, since Blizzard is on a kick to make all the top trainer learned recipes to not be top level and the patterns you need to level up to 600 are PvP, which I don’t do. I realize they are pretty decent for PvE, but it’s a principle, why not let me get level 90 PvE blues from Leatherworking?

In no way am I preparing to quit the game. No, I am really enjoying the game and have my 3 plots of land for Tiller farming and I am working on the Golden Lotus rep, not every day, but most days. I was getting Golden Lotus rep to get the leatherworking patterns, but now I am thinking I might drop leatherworking and just have two gathering professions.

Skullreaver is not a raiding guild. We have a few 90′s and I am not sure have much more than 10 unique accounts. Most of the time we might have 1 or 2 people on. By the way, if you’d be interested in a really casual, but really nice guild, who is not level 25, but working on it, the Skullreaver is open to new members. We have big plans. We also have real lives, with families and time constraints and altism. Although, I do have a confession to make. I’ve spent a ton of gold and time building my leveling sets and I find myself not really wanting to play anyone but Halkale. I log into Punkinpie to run my AH stuff. I log into Knicknack to do his daily minor glyph research and when he has max rested to level him through healing LFG. I am trying to log into Crispers here and there and level him to get the Dynamic Duo and Double Agent achievements.

But, my first love is now my only true love. I love Halkale, love being a hunter. Love trying new things, taking on bigger and bigger packs and keeping my Turtle (He needs a name) healed and holding aggro. My Turtle is the Rare you have to track down, use a flare to see and tame. I think most of the pets I love the most are the ones I spent time either camping a spawn spot (Winterschill – Wolf Spirit Beast), running way up north into Night Elf area to open statues to tame when I was only 24-25 (Szablya – Ghost Saber) or had to tame while in some phase (Donteatme – translucent Worm from Wrath) or hunt down, Turtle (Bloodtooth).

I’d like to raid, but first I need to get my iLevel up. I need to start running Heroics. I know the queue times will suck as DPS, but I can queue and then farm or do dailies. I still have several zones to finish questing in, since I dinged just after I started Townlong.  I am about halfway through Friendly with Golden Lotus, wondering if I should get to Honored by the recipes and get them done for Halk, before I drop Leatherworking. I have about 8k gold and quite a lot of leather in my bank.

Whatever happens. I know I love playing the game right now.

No, my turtle’s name is not bonnet.

I have a puntable marmot and I am not afraid to use it.

Some minor spoilers for those of you who haven’t stepped foot in the Valley of Four Winds. Oh and in the news, apparently, Kor’s Rant from yesterday about not getting random regular dungeons at 90, heard by Blizz and already fixed. Behold the power of 4theHorde!

For those of you that have, do you remember reading the quest text and saying, I get to what? On Vent, I asked Kor how long he stayed punting Marmots before he left and he dropped the bomb. YOU get your own puntable marmot!
My first punt knocked it out of the park, I mean I have no idea where he landed, but next time the cooldown was up I punted him on one of the river islands..to prove a point to Li Li. He went to the edge of the little island and stopped, so I guess water has a different code.

The kick is up and its good!

Let me talk about Pet Battles for a bit. First, you should know this was the least important thing in the expansion to me. I figured I’d try it out, but meh. Seriously, I would hear Nim and Sy talking about it but wasn’t really interested. Sy is the mount and pet greedy goblin in the group, we give him crap for it. But, like Kor, I am hooked. I spent all my play time on Monday night searching for new and rare pets and battling up my stable of pets. I got my first uncommon pet from a creepy crawly in Duratar. I grabbed my first rare from Northern Barrens–fear my Prarie Dog! Then I found the Cheetah Cub. My first thought was awwwww. Then I had to have one. Kor grabbed a rare one, but I just have a Uncommon. I hate Kor. My main pet is my Onyxian Whelpling, I’ve named it Moar Dots, I named my Prairie Dog Rabbit, because they seem to breed like rabbits in Northern Barrens. My Baby Blizzard Bear is named Liter, Kor named his Kola.

Do we sell Liter Cola?

I picked up a Winterspring Cub and I think I probably won’t fret over the cheetah as much. I think my team will consist of Moar Dots, the new Winterspring Cub and probably a mechanical..although I may go with Mr. Pinchy.

On Tuesday, Nim wrote a post about Panda hate. I mentioned in the comments that I’ve seen positive reviews in the bloggers I follow. BBB has mentioned his like or love of the Pandas in two posts (I’ll add the links later, work blocks his site and my feed reader butchers the links). Navimie has written several posts about pet battles, which I read and printed out the sheet she linked in this post. Bocat hates leveling in MOKFP, but I think she likes the expansion…or at least getting hammered. Repgrind is excited and is also potentially a traitor. Please note, Shadow Rising and Skullreaver have the same guild tabard, great minds and all.

Last night, Halkale got to 600 skinning by skirting the wall and riding into Dread Wastes and killing turtles and fishing up Mantis Shrimp for cooking recipes. Basically, Skullreaver has a challenge. A challenge to get heirloom pants. We will get our pants. FOR THE PANTS!!! FOR THE HORDE!!! Lok’tar Ogar…wait whats the Orcish word for pants?
