Incoming Patch?

With 5.2 getting really close now, and you realize that there’s not a lot you can do to better your crew before the incoming content, what do you do? (your milage will vary)

With my crew about as good as they’ll get for now, I’ve settled upon just maintaining the three farms and minor efforts towards building valor points up. Each of the three plant their farms according to their profession needs, so it’s sorta like just stockpileing mats.

Beyond that, each of the rest have been assigned various zones to complete for sections of the Loremaster title. Leetan did the honors of finishing off the Eastern Kingdoms.

Now, everyone is concentrating their efforts on Kalimdor. Two of the eight zones needed are done. Ashenvale is being probmatic. It still has that bugged/glitched quest that has been a headache for like forever. Never been fixed. :s

The good part about this little side project of Loremaster, is that each of those dusty alts are seeing a fair amount of attention and leveling quite well. Well enough, that Ay opened his coin bag and bought 3 of them heirloom cloaks from the guild rewards vendor.

The hunter and baby pally are progressing as expected. Both are strong and capable ‘get-it-done’ classes. The surprise in the lot so far though is Nokila, the warlock. Demonology specced, she has aquired some sort of natural talent in using her toolbox of goodies. Right or wrong, she’s figured out how to quickly build her powers up, then snap in and out of her purple demon form for quick kills. lol, kind of like a shape-shifting druid. She gets their attention, then pops and kills them. Moving along quickly, she can keep this going on for quite some time. Very effective.

Besides Kalimdor, there’s still Outland and Northrend to consider. I’m not really looking forward to the Outland grinds. Hopefully this new set of alts will make things a bit more bareable. Northrend…well, I’ve always raced everyone through there, skipping a lot of things. So it’s going to be a grind fest. Cata zones, no real problem there. The water world is the only zone I’ve consistantly skipped completeing on anyone. Pandara is done, thanks to Dufits’ tenacity, energy and vigor in wanting to experience it all from first launch.

That about sums things up for the moment. A few loose ends but, meh, we’ll get to them sooner or later. 🙂

Dufit and the Sha

YAY! Dufit finally got to try his first Sha of Anger fight this afternoon.

Most of the group seemed fairly experienced with the fight, so things went pretty good near as I could tell. To Dufits’ credit….he DID’NT DIE! Not even once. It fact, he managed to avoid most all the bad stuffs, adds and such. What did find him got VT’d quickly while he moved well away, lol. Only once did he have to take a moment to burn down one persistant add.

It was very hectic to say the least, and I had a bit of lag going on. But all in all, it was a great experience I really enjoyed doing.

Sorry about not having more screenies of the fight itself. Being my first really big fight it was a little hectic, lol. But here’s a couple I did manage, along with some happy rewards! (pst….sorry about all the line-outs as well. I did not know any of these people in the group, or if they would approve)

okay, going good

So, Dufit enjoyed this afternoon’s adventure. Got some really good loot for a change. Although he didn’t die, he does need to work on his dps a bit. LOL! I think everybody except a few healers did better.

Just a tad low, even for Dufit

Dufit’s World, pt.2

Finally!

YES! After a bit of final Dark Soil farming last night, Dufit has managed to gain everyones’ friendship. Some of his last gifts included an orange tree, sheep, pigs and chickens. Everyone is doing well and the farm is producing fantastic crops daily.

Dog seems to enjoy all the new company.

Maybe 5 or 6 wandering about the farm.

Then there was this seemingly valuable gift of a Red Cricket, or so he thought. Dufits’ advisors over at the Undermine Journal suggested (several days ago) that the Cricket was worth an average of 10k across the board and around 8k in his world. At the time, there were two other offers up for bid hanging between 5 and 7k. Poor Dufit got no buyers on his 5.3k flat buy-out listing. 😦  I guess the probability of learning this pet and it turning out to be common instead of rare has made buyers skeptical.

Worth anything?

In the meantime, continuing serveitude for various factions are, well, continuing. 🙂 He’s reached revered status with the Golden Lotus, Klaxxi and Shado-Pan. Through some over-sight or crossed communications breech though, he is sorely lacking viable friendship with the August Celestrials. Upon discovery of this though, Dufit went into overdrive and managed to cover the “nobody-to-friendly” state of affairs in one swift round. He cannot be deceived though. He knows full well that they’ve got a long road to travel. His only stumbleing stone so far is his hesitation to enter the challengers ring at the Temple of the White Tiger. Hopefully, it’ll pass soon.

It’s been a good thing to be able to select some new enchanting and tailoring abilities, even thought the materials needed for some things are rather ‘hard-to-come-by’. The work ahead though sure makes those gold coins in his money bag a bit more shiney. If he wasn’t so attached to his coin bag, he could easily buy the next guild bank slot and barely feel the difference. So far though, he’s not parting with his coin without a fight. LOL!

Certainly not much to choose from.

We are given to understand that entry into the Brawlers’ Guild is by invitation only, through the Black Market AH purchase of an invitation or from a standing member within. Dufit hasn’t been to the Black Market AH lately. His last two visits provided only two items each time. Rather common items at outrageous prices! He wasn’t sure about the mail armored boots, but they didn’t appeal to him anyway. Anyway, time will tell. Maybe the BMAH will gain some stock to sell. Maybe he’ll get lucky with an invite. Unless the coin is in the bag, it’s all “maybe’s”.

Okay, time to go kill and gather more stuffs for everybody’s attention. Sheeze! Gotta pay them to favor a goblin.
