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.

All I can say is that the RNG Gods favored him. I ran MC a few times this last month with him (solo) when I was bored.
So I ran MC last night, Monday, before raid reset – Bam – Garr dropped the Right Half of Thunderaan’s Eternal Prison. Tuesday came along today and I ran through it again (after I did on my warlock first of course) and – Bam – Baron drops the other half.
So I took the MATs I have saved for my Warlock (when the other half drops for him) and made the sword on my DK!
I’ll still be running MC weekly on the warlock til he gets it complete too!
Well WoW is again active after a 2 month break for me… so except more WoW stuff later on.
Also wanted to share this awesome new video:
The Lonely Island’s new album is out this Tuesday May, 10th!
Ironforge Bank Laser Attack, totally not a corny title.
So my Mage friend and I are bored, thus we’re zapping unsuspecting folks in Ironforge with our Dark Jade Focusing Lens! Do you want to get ontop of the Bank like us? Check out Youtube videos about it like this one, need a mage though!

Tuesday was our first step into Heroic Modes with ICC10, three down so far!
I think Icecrown Citadel, at least on Heroic, presents an interesting challenge for Raid Leaders. With the ability to toggle Heroic on and off, you have to make your own plan of attack such as who to focus on first.
During our first week, we took out the first three bosses with relative ease but then the fourth, Saurfang, is a whole other ballgame. We ended up skipping him (killing him on normal mode) for this week so we could try other bosses on our way to Lich King such as Blood Queen and Dreamwalker.
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.
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:
