I spotted a Disgusting Oozeling in the Auction House for only 5,000 , so I snatched it up.
When you have the pet out, its aura turns you green — even while mount and such.
This pet dates back to Classic WoW, so it’s been around forever but it’s great to finally own.
Mean while in a tent this evening…
Well the we have finally downed Lich King! Unfortunately I had to use my warrior…
Due to the wondrous nature of 10man Raiding Guild Recruitment, I bit the bullet and just brought my alt Prot Warrior Rackham in for our first Lich King kill. Although having the Kingslayer title on my alt is amusing, I will be on my Warlock next time fulfilling my proper role in raid, to melt faces.
We actually downed him on our last go for the night as Raid End time passed as we were doing the encounter. Always nice to grab the kill even if it’s at the end of the raid night. Our MainTank Leopole actually passed the Tank Axe (Troggbane, Axe of the Frostborne King) to my warrior which I gladly took.
My latest level 80, the shaman named: Ansible. This makes my 6th level 80 character in WoW (or 5th maxed alt). However, Ansible is my first caster (DPS) alt so I’m really looking forward to what she can do with some gear. I do have my priest but I only ever plan to heal with him, normally as holy even though I’ll level to 85 as shadow spec.
Update: Been many weeks since the ding to 80 and now I have pretty much everything I’ll loot outside of doing some raids.
Hey homles, check out the new ride!
If you have not heard, or live under a rock, the new Recruit-a-Friend rewards mount is the X-53 Touring Rocket two person flying mount and it’s badass! It scales to what your maximum flight speed is such as if you have epic flying and/or a 310% mount! You might be wondering who I recruited? Well I must admit it was just myself… I used my old second account (from back in December) for the Rewards portion.
How can you get this mount? If recruiting a friend is not an option then you’ll end up paying $50 basically. But you can do this completely online (with a credit card) via the Blizzard Store!
You’ll need a new copy of World of Warcraft (classic is all thats needed, $20).
Two months worth of ‘Game Time‘ (two purchases of 30 Day Game time, $30).
Also be sure to generate the ‘Trial Key‘ from your veteran WoW account for your new one.
You’ll end up with a Month free on your veteran account along with the mount reward for one of your veteran account players! And you’ll have your second account active for three months of gameplay which the first 90 days get the ‘linked account’ leveling bonuses if you want to play with dual boxing like I did.
I made a small video of my shiny X-53 Touring Rocket below:
Been slacking a little with posting updates but here you go!
I present to you my level 80 Paladin, Deepholm!
This guy has actually been 80 for almost two weeks (from this post). The random dungeon finder graced me with the triumph the gear up fast to T9 232 ilvl average along with my ToC5 Heroic Sword!
I must admit I find my warrior to fill the tanking role better for my play style but this paladin has his own perks.
Well it’s time of the year again, the valentines are filled out & perfume/cologne is abused.
This year is different though! The in-game world event for Love is in the Air received a major face-lift this year. We have a completely different system for the [Love Token] and the needed achievement items / vanity items. Many sites like WoW.com and MMO-Champ have laid out the details but it’s a good change to this holiday. You can now guarantee grabbing a Peddlefeet!
I’m actually not to worried about getting it complete on my alts with this nerf/change.
Here is a screenshot of the some of new content/quests:
Anyways, I made a short video clip of the new Love Boats that are available in various capital cities:
Update 1/26/09: Professor Putricide also is down!
The first gated content in Icecrown Citadel has opened up & I’m looking forward to it!
We had some good tries with Professor Putricide this first week but the 10 attempts were not enough to kill him off. We did take down Rotface & Festergut with relative ease though. I wish Blizzard would stray away from the limited attempts scenario for raid bosses but they have improved from Anub’arak.
Many guilds, even the ‘high-end’ ones really did not approve of such achievements as [A Tribute to Insanity]. Keeping achievements away from ‘how many attempts are remaining’ is what happened with Putricide. You can kill him with 10 attempts left or 1 attempt left, it has no negative ramifications (aside from repair bills).
I can live with limited attempts for bosses in ICC but the achievement-based bit that we saw in patch 3.2, with the Crusaders’ Coliseum, was really depressing at times.
