Ramble On Tauren!

It’s been a very interesting weekend thus far, meaning Fri. and Sat. So, pardon me if I seem to ramble on a bit with no real plan.

Okay, I’ve actually got the UI mostly set-up, including the party and raid frames. Or at least I hope so, lol. One more project nearly completed, so one point for ‘happy-time.’

My co-gm, (guildmate and game friend all-in-one) sent Ay a wonderful little gift for which I’m very thankful. It’s this battle pet. Hehe! Now, I have this feeling that a certain “Cat” might be trying to lure me into that whole pet battle scene and although tempting as it is, I just have so many little projects going on that another one will have to take a number. So I will tuck the little guy/gal(?) away safely for when things settle down a bit.

Speaking of guild for a moment: A new member has joined our little bundle of ‘greys’. I’m really happy about this overall. Our initial forays into the world together have been fun, hectic, exciting…a mixed bag of surprises.

I foresee a lot of potential here, from the perspective of a guild leader. Perhaps I’m a bit of a dreamer but then again, dreamers are what builds and makes the worlds of Azeroth go ’round. Along with guilds, 🙂  We now have four members, and I think if we ever all come together at once with some basic plans, the potential of a solid and interesting team could be in the making. As long as we keep the ‘fun and exciting’ parts flowing, I think the future is promising.

Ay has been running as Ret for his tour in Pandaria. lol, it’s not a pretty picture! He’s sadly in need of better gear and he’s just not making all the efforts he can to get there. He learned rather quickly the other night when the repair bill topped the 25g mark. Or was it 45g? Either one, deaths just don’t pay well, rotfl! So he’s just gonna have to grin and bear the random group thing and hit up some dungeons. lol, I foresee a few “kick-the-noob” sceanarios ahead.

at least he "looks" good!

If Ay thought his gear failed, Thdoria’s is even worse. As a caster dps though, she could probably manage the early MoP dungeons in fair shape.

Dufit, fairly geared, should be hitting the LFR every week though he’s yet to attempt it. Overall, I do foresee a lot of encounter research ahead. His little pick sheet shows him eligible for two raids. Haven’t got a clue how they work, so we’re breaking new ground once again.

The AH adventure: The first week of TSM accounting is encouraging. Just about 7k income for the week. Got a lot to learn yet though. Still trying to narrow the market down to something good for us. So far, it looks like a mix of several areas have potential.

Okay, I’ll wrap up the rambeling for now. Remember, it’s only pixel death. Do the corpse run and try, try, try, again. LOL!

Dufits’ World, pt.3

Dufit in the house. Beware the shadows.

Really though, Dufit has been a bit laid back. Venturing out only long enough to tend to his farm and preform his civic duties killing off sections of Alliance troops in Krasarang on a daily basis. He does desire a new helm, although he’s been slack at working for one. His cloth turban like helm is beginning to show tattered, torn signs of too many battles.

Flagged and fighting!

In his subtle efforts to gain a new helm, he has ventured back towards some old friends for some work-on-the-side. Good folks those Shado-Pans’ and Klaxxi. Always willing to hire an effective mercenary on a moment’s notice. The Klaxxi were so thankful for all his previous assistance, that they decided to show him a secret underground room that holds of all things, secrets.

Pay attention to the discussion going on.

Hmmmm?

Hmmmm?

Is this yet another sign of things to come? In the meantime, his faction civic duties have taken yet another turn on the trail of intrigue and covert dealings. So far, the Trolls, Blood Elves and the Tauren are all having some serious thoughts over Hellscreams’ intentions. Growing dis-trust, and dis-like hang like a thick dark cloud over several renown leaders.

I can only speculate what the Banshee Queen is thinking long about now. Hellscream isn’t exactly on her friends list, and she certainly does have the power; cunning and battle experience to take him out. Not to say other leaders don’t possess the ability if needed, I just don’t see the Dark Lady wasting any time in doing so.

On the lighter side of things, both Dufit and Ay have been going around gathering up treasures. Thdoria just loves this. After all, she is the lucky receipiant of said treasures thus far. Daggers, polearms, spears, all sent to her. I would imagine she is going to have some dress-up fun during her field testing sprint.

Easy to miss this one!

Well, things to do and places to go. Dufits’ demanding a new helm, Ay’s stomping his feet for a new weapon. Sheeze! Everybody wants something.

May as well travel in style :)

What Is Real?

I sorta-kinda remember from some time back, someone saying something along these lines:

~What most people think of as reality, is really fantasy. What they call fantasy, is the true reality.~

Not the exact quote, but close enough for now. Sooooooo, where have I been lately? 🙂 Mostly running around Pandaria, with minor side journeys into old Azeroth. I’ll let you dear readers chose the state of reality/fantasy traveled in.

With the coming of Landfall (5.1), Dufit has been scrambling about building another new reputation status. Although he still has Shado-Pan and Celestials to complete, along with daily farm care, the lure of some pvp on the beachs of Krasarang was not to be ignored.

He has held off doing the Dagger in the Dark scenario just yet though. Recent news of Aygaren’s mis-adventures advised that some pre-research would be advisable.

On the other hand, Aygaren has a full farm to care for now, along with numerous faction reps underway. His plate is rather full, but he found a bit of time to attempt some solo-man raids. The outcome was mixed, some good, some disasterous. The switch back to protection for them was interesting to say the least. And perhaps his first choices could have been better, along with a little bit of “pre-research”, lol!

What! I need frost?

Got lucky on this one!

Ahhhh, the talented, though rather lazy, Thdoria. Good at making flasks for everyone, as long as they send her bunches of Golden Lotus. At the tender age of 89, she’s gingerly stepping out at times to entice the Klaxxi into liking her. Recently, Aygaren gifted her with the Umbrella of Chi-Ji. Since then she’s been searching for an appropriate dagger to use. She’ll get back to those Klaxxi folks in due time, so she says.

Seriously?

Seriously?

Okay! I just had to do it. The only race I haven’t attempted to play yet. Introducing the new and needed leathercrafter, Leetan!

Org-not so friendly

Leetan is 17 now, and I’m really not looking forward all that much to his growing pains. He has two saving graces: leatherworking and rare pets. Oh, and he also dislikes Hellscream. And he is a Beastmaster. It’s going to be a long journey for him although the outlook is fair.

The guild: Slowly growing, at level 13 now. Hope abounds, potential is slim. Finding and encouraging good people to join is a huge project. I’ve even considered recruiting a “recruitment officer.” Visions, plans and goals are all great things to have. Sitting around in Org or somewhere attempting to entice membership is not one of my strong suits. It’s one of those duties I just as soon allocate. In the meantime, I do what I can in building and caring for guild rep on the home front. Out in the world doing things and being helpful to other players. lol, at least no one is bashing the guild in /2!

Onwards and upwards! Maintenance should end in a couple of hours now and I should go searching for some dagger in dark info. Dufit has an appointment with Mr. Robot, and the screenshots have piled up again. Such is life in Azeroth these days 🙂
