Filler Post: Screenies Ahead!

With several projects going on simultaniously, it’s been a bit slow around the blog. Never fear though! There always seems to be a few screenshots hanging about waiting for just such moments. There’ll be a return to relevant posts soon. Right after I manage to set-up two different Pitbull4 profiles…ugh. Enjoy the screenies for the moment, have fun in game 🙂

DMF Dancing Bear–Shadow style!

Obviously, Dufit’s been holding out on those DMF game tickets. Until he was spotted in the company of the dancing bear mount.

I really need to keep a closer eye on those shadow priests.

Archaeology find.

Hmmmm? And I thought she was just chillin’ out in Dalaran.

Tol Barad Daily: Leftovers

🙂  At least Dufit worked for his playtime at the Faire!

OMG! The King!

Oh geez! Thought I left you wandering in Hillsbrad?

We’ll now return you to your regular round of blog reading 🙂






Rest, Rares and Gathering

Taking a much needed rest.

Do you know which inn?

Ay did lay back for a bit of time, while Dufit managed a few more levels and pushed his enchanting skills upwards. They were slightly lean and short of level, lol. At 77 (or maybe it’s 78 now) Dufit wants to be minimally capped out before the arrival of Mists.

This time period in Azeroth is kind of lean itself. Yet, it is a perfect time to clean up many of those loose ends that have been laying around. Ay is doing just that. While making some preperations for the Panda invasion, he is working on his Bloody Rare and Frostbitten achievements.

The going was a bit slow for him though. I heard him muttering in that do-it-or-else tone, “NPCscan.” So I broke down finally and went shopping for him. With the sudden influx of rare kills the past two days (8 by my count), Ay’s general demeanor has improved greatly.

ok, this thing works!

Lovin’ it!

The elusive Highlord-found.



He had only a couple momenets of *Hurmphing* over his new toy. He was wise to the “fly yourself about, no taxi service now” idea. Really starting to save some money that way now. He did have one episode though while in Wyrmrest Temple and needing to seriously empty his bags, decided a quick flight to Dalaran would’nt hurt. WRONG!  Fifteen seconds into the flight, the scan goes off. Stuck now. No intermediate flight paths betweent the two to /camp on quickly. He had to finish the run and fly back. It turned out well though since no one seemed to be in Dragonblight anyway. He found his target not far outside the Temple.

Got Lucky!


The only other hang-up was during his hunt in Zul’ Drak. The scan went off and he could’nt figure out where the required rare was. No pathing was showing on the overlays for him. LOL! Turned out the rare was in IceCrown!! Of coarse, by the time he got there it was gone.

There are some additional benefits to this NPCscan useage. Part of Ay’s preperations include stockpiling raw ores, cloths and companion pets. The Northrend rares drop a sachel which includes a stack of cloth. Their handful of gold is nice to collect, as their BoE blue items. His mining skills have boosted the amounts of raw ores he’s saving. He does not pass up a node. AND, his archaeology has benefited as well. Several new rare finds are now tucked away. Nothing like combining all these usual tasks into one neat bundle.

So, that covers Ay’s projects, pretty much. Rares on two different worlds, archaeology, mining and cloth distribution. His only regret so far, is Anzu. He did manage to grind out the last of his skyguard rep today though, and pick up his second Mysterious Egg to hatch. So he’s fairly content. For the moment.

Love the new mount!

Must have matching pet! Right?


*Personal Note*

None of the above, or much else, would be possible if it were not for the men and women of our armed services whom have given so much for our freedoms.  “Thank you.” *hugs*

It’s The Little Ones

It was a quiet afternoon. Ay wandered about thinking over his options, like where to go and what to do. Little things. The morning had already been filled with the usual mercenary type assignments (dailys), and another drawn out round of Tol Barad. It certainly was time for some peace and quiet. Or so he thought.

Children’s Week.  Seemed like just what he needed. Bonding with some of the war orphans. Cute little things. That unassuming little orc child appeared to be a quiet type. Hmmmm? You want to take a ride on that red rocket? No problem. Until he went button-pushing-crazy! That rocket was all over everywhere except its’ track. And to top things off, the little squirt EJECTED me! Left me stranded on the track in nowheresville.

Taking the child for a ride.

Red Rocket Ride

He just dumped my Tauren rear!


So much for extending kindness. The little guy ran me around a bit more after that. But in the end, he had to return to his matron for safe keeping, at least for a day or two while I rest up. He was appreciative though, I’ll give him that much.

Hmmm? The kid or the pig? Let's go Mr. Wiggles.

Mr. Wiggles

After that, it was off to Outland for visiting day there. The frail blood elf girl seemed much more harmless.  Besides wanting to see real dragons, her main goal was to become a rock star. Otherwise, the visit turned out fairly well and involved a lot of world travel to appease her. Her appreciation came in the form of:

it soooo cute!


Tired from the journey.

It likes to sleep quite often!

Oh, and she did learn not to get into the fire while visiting the Throne of the Elements. And the keepers of time in the caverans….well…..the guards didn’t quite take to her but the big guy saved her skin. Not sure what all’s up with that situation. Got her a model dragon and we took our leave. Quickly.

End of the day now. Time for “Lucky Bird” to impart his wisdom before we call it a night.

Ay was ready to turn in for the night. It was time for some real rest.

We certainly hope your day went well. And, don’t spoil those children! At least not too much.
