First Firelands Tame...

.... what?

This little guy started an entire thread on the Petopia PTR forums. I read through it, laughed, and then went on my way. Until today, when Booggah unlocked the Molten Front, and I went to go exploring....

Boo did get killed by the fire heading up there, but eh, learning experience. He had no trouble finding Dante, although (thankfully) there was no sign of Kirix. I sat and stared at him for a few minutes, then... heck, I did have an extra slot in case Boo ran into Magria. So, when Booggah left the Firelands, Dante did too.

As soon as I tamed him and was posing for the screenshot, he started waving his claws around, like he was excited about going on some new adventures. XD

I'm sad about stabling Runya for now, but he doesn't seem to mind the break, and Boo still needs an open slot for his blue spirit-kitty. And having NPC_Scan go off every time I cleared my cache and then logged on Boo was getting a little tiring. >.>

Dante is proving himself as a good little tank already, and I'm falling for him fast. Boo doesn't need to worry about stable slots (since there isn't very many that I want him to tame), so it looks like he's got a permanent home. *hugs Dante*

And now, how about a couple more screenshots?

*Ahem* Almost forgot something else. Last Tuesday's RP night saw another change- not such a big one as some have been, since she's nearly been an honorary Rider for a while now, but still...

Lark has joined Pitch in the Riders. :D:D:D

Tuesday, June 28, 2011


Spent all Monday on Booggah, which I'd been meaning to do for the past... week or so? Poor neglected dude. But anyway! He finally got his attention, with the following results...


Uh, I think we'll pass. Thanks anyway.


4 toons at cap now. Rill is nearly 84 too, but I don't know if he'll be my next to finish. Quae has been fun, and I've been thinking of tweaking Turron's tank gear and running through some dungeons. And I still have Alanon and Barraccus waiting.....




(Firelands post to come, after I've run a few more toons through the prequests.)

Couple things...

First thing... hurray! Quae has finally joined the 80+ club, and has merrily mind-flayed her way across Hyjal to 3/4 of the way to 81. Guild xp perk + heirloom cloak is awesomesauce.

Once I'm finished with Booggah I may just go ahead and try leveling her next. Then she'll be a higher level than Barraccus, which will be funny. Yes, it will, trust me.

Speaking of Booggah, he's 84 and working his way toward that last goal. He'll still need a bit of gear before he's really ready to hit Firelands and find his rare(s), but hopefully it won't take long.

Oh yea, and Ice says hi.
I love this cat so much. Samurai has been taking a well-deserved break- she's still in one of his active slots (and will never leave) but Ice here and his fire turtle Runya have been the only pets Boo's used since they were both tamed. I really ought to take more screenies of Runya, I just love him so much.

And yes, I've heard about the normal Terropene-skinned mobs that will be in the Firelands. Know what? I don't care. Boo's turtle isn't Terropene anymore, he's Runya, and I don't give a hoot whether he's a common skin or a "mine's-better-than-yours" rare skin. I will always remember how hard I had to camp to get him, and that's enough for me. Heck, if I get a fire turtle on any other toons, it probably will be a common one, simply because of how hard it was to get Terropene.

Still playing on LOTRO whenever I can pull myself away from WoW. Basten is up to 18, I've leveled a couple other toons, and I'm getting into the routine of the Saturday-night RP nights for Basten. Last one was especially fun, as we all went out fishing! Basten brought home a string of trophy fish for my characters' house. :D

I finished another horse picture, which I worked on longer than any of them yet. This is another scene from my story, which I am finally writing down for reals! Amadar again, who is teaching me just how hard it can be to do good shadows on a white horse. Also- dapples, urgh.

Supposedly the Firelands patch is coming this next Tuesday, I'm still hoping Boo will be 85 before then. Lark is as ready as she'll ever be, I think, and with the justice points she's saved up I'm hoping she'll be able to get some of her tier gear. Her raid group is still working on Cho'gall, but tonight we got him to 9% on our last attempt, so next week we will get him down! (Even if it's because he'll be nerfed. >.>) We might start a second raid night at first, just so people can finish getting their tier 11 and be ready for the Firelands raid, then we'll be going back to 1 night a week, which is fine by me.

Whew! Now I need sleep and stuffs, so til next time Happy Hunting!

This is what happens when I raid...

Before you start thinking horrible things about me, I only took about 3 seconds for the screenshot, so I wasn't exactly wasting dps time. And we pretty much have eveyrything up to Chimaeron (maybe him too, I dunno) on farm, so it's not like I needed to be paying attention....

So yea, this is what might happen when I get bored during a raid. I am seriously loving Lark's new(ish) Marksman offspec. With her current gear, she's pulling 15k dps easy. ^_^

And now our mid-raid break is over and I have to get back to it... *flees*

We interrupt this... wait, nevermind

So yea, silence again. It's kinda funny (in a sad way >.<) seeing how the number of posts has dropped off from when I first started the blog, but I guess that's to be expected, right? But anyway, I thought I'd do an update, just so folks know what's up.

First off, I'm not doing much in-game except raiding. I've been tinkering with alts, but can't stay focused on one for very long, blah. Rheugan did hit 71 yesterday, at least, and Turron and Rillian are both 83. So is Booggah, and I think tm that I'm going to level him next. Mostly because I just discovered this.

Ahnka is nice, but that's not what Boo will be after when 4.2 comes along. Nope, he'll be hunting for Magria. Blue spirit kitty? DO WANT!

So, anyway. Raiding. Lark's raid group took down all the bosses but Nef in Blackwing Descent again, same as last week. This week, however, we went to Bastion of Twilight first to work on Ascendant Council. After a LOT of this

....We did eventually get them down! So now we've killed every boss in those 2 raids except for the end ones. We haven't worked up the nerve to try Nef yet, but we extended the lockout on BoT again, and next week will see our first attempts at Cho'gall.

Lark has been doing a bunch of other stuff as well. First off, she's all ready when BabyWynd grows up...

She actually got this awhile ago, I just haven't mentioned it before. >.>

Another belated announcement is this guy, who she found after a few days of off-and-on camping.

He spawned right in front of her, and she got him before the worgen that was also there waiting. Poor guy, I felt sorry for him, heh. He was very polite, however, and didn't even try to interrupt the tame. Hopefully he's gotten his own gummibear by now.

Beyond that, tinkering with the afore-mentioned alts, and building my gold reserves slowly but surely, I haven't been doing very much. Work is kicking my tail a bit in that I've been really tired lately, and naptimes interfere with gametime a bit.

I've also rediscovered my love for LOTRO...

This is my newest guy, Basten the burglar. My first attempt at a burglar kinda died out, since I never felt like playing her, but Basten has been a lot more engaging, and more fun to play. Plus he's been spoiled rotten so far by my higher-levels, as the horse might indicate.

I also finished another picture. Have another Vardigen.

This is actually a scene from my story. XD Karee's first sight of him, in fact. I really need to write it out soon.

So that's about it. I have more writing planned, and hopefully I'll actually finish something soon. Basten needs a post of his own, but that will likely go on my non-WoW blog. Pitch is getting geared up, more or less, and he's almost ready for the troll dungeons. He's also up to 102 mini-pets now!

Can't think of anything else, so til next time Happy Hunting!
