My resolution: to blog more…
However, unlike a WoW expansion I’m not hitting it hardcore; my main is currently level 38. That’s my choice and I’m taking my time since completing normal mode. Nightmare is definitely a step up and I am curious to play Inferno / level 60. Not to mention there are many more ability specs to unlock.
Anyways, I thought I’d record and share the new ‘cow level‘ for Diablo, check it out below:
How do you get there? Assemble the Staff of Herding (or find a friend who has it), which requires retrieving a Blacksmith plan and 5 unique ingredients that are used only for the staff, located in remote, random locations or on special monsters. While otherwise useless and unimpressive looking besides it’s flavor text, the Staff of Herding is the key you will need, much like the old Wirt’s Leg.
Then you need to find the entrance to Whimsyshire and it’s legendary gatekeeper, for whom the staff is to be crafted. It’s back in Act I, off the Old Tristram road.

Liking this game so far! You can grab this game for around $5 on Steam.
Cubemen is a fast paced, action packed, original 3D Tower Defense game that mixes TD with RTS in single player & online multi-player awesomeness! Get ready for some crazy Cubemen action! It’s the age old struggle between Good vs Bad, Blue vs Red, Little men vs Little men. Use your own little Cubemen to defend your base from other little Cubemen that are trying to run it over. It’s the usual story, but with many very interesting twists. store.steampowered.com/app/207250/
Moved into my new apartment this last weekend (which is only about ~5mile from the old one).
BUT with this move I’ve switch Internet service providers! What does this mean? MORE SPEED
My new upload is now a wonderful 3 megabit (or 375 kilobyte) per second. This means that I can now Livestream in glorious 720p HD. So look for some updates on that soon!
FYI: Internet companies generally advertise in Bits and not Bytes. Your computer normally displays speeds in Bytes (the smaller number) so to find that number just divide the bit amount by 8.
Christmas was simple this year, did not have a big family gathering. Simple is not bad though and my PC got some love. I built my current PC back in May (2011) with the base stats of Intel i5 3.2 GHz w/ 8GB DDR3 and my old 64GB SSD & GeForce GTS 250. The Holidays brought about some new additions:
- Bamboo Capture Pen Tablet
- Logitech Wireless Gaming Headset G930
- OCZ Agility3 120GB SATA III 2.5″ SSD
- Corsair 8GB DDR3 1600 (2×4)
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.
The new Apex Community Website I’ve been working on is live now! at www.ApexGamers.org
This new website will allow Apex to continue gaming in any capacity while still having a central website location. StarWars: The Old Republic will be out in less than 10 days and it will mark the first major game some Apex members will be playing and utilizing this new website.
Background: I joined Apex, the guild on Garona [US] in World of Warcraft back in April this year. This guild itself has been around since the first week of WoW and has actually existed throughout many games over the years including EverQuest II before WoW. The interesting thing is that Apex Guild merged with my old guild Divinity back in the Burning Crusade expansion and has been somewhat inactive in the raiding scene since then. Apex has been revived in Cataclysm and it seems things have gone full circle and sideways — as I have joined a guild that once merged with my old guild. As Scary Movie 3 would say, that’s some Quantum sh1t.
What is a WoW Annual Pass?
The WoW Annual Pass is a twelve month World of Warcraft subscription which can be paid for in monthly installments.
When do I get Diablo III and the other exclusive benefits?
You’ll be able to download and play Diablo III as soon as it’s available and once you complete the one-year term, it’s yours to keep, even if you cancel your subscription. Tyrael’s Charger will be available with Patch 4.3, and beta access will go live with the beta launch.
Time for a Warcraft update. Finally went back into ICC 10 to finish off Heroic LichKing that we did not kill at the end of WOTLK due to raid attendance dropping as Cata approached (my guild completed our Meta though).
So anyways, I dragged 9 other souls back into ICC last week to do Heroic LK for the Guild Achievement (and to finish player/individual version). We went back this last Friday and completed the Meta for those who needed it that showed up for our H LK kill last week.
Total time played as of this post: 316 days
