To Baby Moonkin, Or Not To Baby Moonkin

Posted in WoW with tags , , , , , , , , , on December 6, 2010 by Tabathine

So Blizz came out with the Baby Moonkin Hatchling. I know you have all seen it. Its huge googly eyes. Its cute little moonkin dance. Its pint sized bundle of cuteness. Oh, and its $10.00 price tag. Thats whats stopping me. I am a WoW pet collector, Taba currently has 77 of the vanity pets, all of which I collected in-game, except for the Core Hound Pup which you get with the authenticator. And Davinna is a Druid, with the potential to become a Moonkin (atm she is spec’ed Resto, but her dual spec is blank). But see, there is a line I drew in some virtual sand that said I would not cross when I started playing WoW, promising myself that I would not pay more than 15 bucks a month towards this addiction. It will take my time, but dammit, it will not take my money! (WoW is pretty cheap as far as addictions go, I mean just look at the price of cigarettes). So far, with the exception of buying the expansion and the authenticator, I have held up.

But… BUT! Continue reading

The Tiny Fawn Joins The Family!

Posted in WoW with tags , , , , , , , , , , on December 3, 2010 by Tabathine

Thats right! Taba reched the 75 pet mark, which instantly got me to 76 pets! A little reseach, a friend, and some great luck got her to this point way faster than I was anticipating.

For all you (horde) pet collectors out there: Cata has brought another buyable pet! (Alliance have to do some sort of quest for it). Withers the tree. Reminds me of Davi’s old tree form, which I want back, but the glyph costs around 285 gold on the AH. I hate you inscriptors. But there is no faction grind, no quest chain, just visit the NPC and fork over 30 silver. But yes, there is a catch: It’s in Darkshore, which is a pain to get to, especially since they took out the FP on the western part of Felwood. I like going the Darkshore, vs the fallowing the path Ashenvale way, because is faster, but if you have no version of soft fall, which, as a Hunter, Taba doesn’t, then jumping down the waterfalls can hurt. Bad. I think I hit below 20% health from falling at least 4 times. And then with all the changes to that area, it’s quite a trek. I’m sure you COULD wait for Cata to come, and then simply fly there, but where is the adventure in that? And I don’t have that type of patience. There is also way cool whirlpool thing on the way that, had I not already been on a mission, I would have so jumped into, just to see what happens. Apothecary Furrows, who lives in a cave set behind a waterfall, sells him.

Oh Wow. Just… WoW

Flying back from Winterspring to Org I had a huge WTF moment (I had ben searching for an abandoned pet to readopt, ended up picking up a totally new pet, more oh that later). I now present to you my WTF moment:

The Night Before the Patch

Posted in WoW with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , on November 23, 2010 by Tabathine

For me, things in WoW seem to happen in 3’s. Todays 3, coming on the eve of patch 4.0.3, is as follows:

I have taken over as Guild Master of my guild, Always Saturday. It’s not a permanent position, but I am to treat it as if I am not just acting GM. Unfortunately Krisna (the real AS GM), has some RL stuff going on, and he isn’t sure how his internet status is going to be, among other things. He asked me to be stand in GM, and while I don’t know if I have all it takes (can someone please tell me what is takes? is there some sort of GM handbook?), it’s a challenge I am looking forward to. I have been an officer in my guild since it started back in Aprilish, and I love how it has grown. I hope to god that I don’t screw it up. I also have to figure out how to trick someone into the Raid Leader position, as I am a terribibble RL. OK, not true, I just don’t want to be RL. It’s to stressful. However as GM, it is my responsibility to make sure we do raid, so RL or no, we are radeing on Saturday, just like always. I have even found 2 DK tanks if needed. On the upside, Krisna always changed our tabards colors every Tuesday, and that power is now mine! Buahahahaha! We’ll be seeing a lot more  purple. But no pink. I am one of 2 girls in my guild, and I rather not face a mutiny just yet. Continue reading

King Slaying, Rats, and Not Doing Quests

Posted in WoW with tags , , , , , , , , on November 16, 2010 by Tabathine

So first and foremost: Davinna is now a King Slayer!

Yup. We (being my guild, Always Saturday) finally killed the bastard. And I have the title to prove it. That I was there was kind of a fluke, and I am so happy for that fluke. We were scheduled to (attempt to) take him down on the 6th, but when that day came I really didn’t want to as Tika ended up dying that morning (see previous post). Really, all I wanted to do was cry that day. And I was short on time as my mom was coming into town, and well, and she hated WoW. I say hated, not hates. More on that in a bit. We were also missing one of our main tanks and a strong dps due to them living in India and it was some sort of holiday which required them to be with family. But attempt to kill that damn Lich King we did! And we failed! Over and over and over. I finally had to leave because my mom arrived. Which kind of sucked because we were really really close to getting him down. Really close.

The next day I logged in to find that the raid had been extended. I had already missed the first 2 hours of wipes. But lucky for me, the pug heals bailed, and I was in! Not 1/2 hour later he was down (I would love to say that it was because of my mad heals, but it was more to everyone finally getting all the kinks worked and me being able to reap the benefits). I got super excited and started squealing and clapping my hands, which made my mom get excited, despite the fact that she had no clue what was going on. Thus the crack was made towards her not hating WoW, simply because she saw that I really like playing it. She was also trying to prove that her and my dad moving to where I live would not disrupt my life. Yeah… not going to happen. But anyways, WE GOT HIM DOWN!!!!!!!! BEFORE CATA!!!!!!!!!!!!

Pet number 67: The Tiny Sporebat!

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , on November 11, 2010 by Tabathine

So I finally did it. I went from non-exsistant to exalted with Sporggar rep just for a pet. And yes, it was worth it. Granted if I have to farm another damn sanguine hibiscus, I will sic my new huge ass tank pet on the the world (she’s a bear, and literally has a huge arse). The Naga in the area can tell you how painful that can be. And since I got sick of farming those flowers, I ended up spending a ton of gold at the AH attempting to buy myself those last 90. I bought out the AH on Tuesday, at 2G-ish per hubiscus, only to discover that by doing so, I jacked up the AH prices to 9G each by Thursday. Don’t you just love the AH? I ended up spamming Trade Chat offering 5G per. I was actually surprised at how many people had some in their bags. And then I was exalted! And it was worth it! What’s even better it that it’s one of the few that has a tamable larger counterpart. So meet the newest member (as yet unnamed) of Taba’s pet family, and vanity pet number 67!

Next: the Sha’tari Skyguard rep grind. I heard the road will be long and hard, but the payoff high. Apparently you can get both a minipet AND a mount!

Excitingness in WoW

Posted in WoW with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , on October 31, 2010 by Tabathine

Recap! A lot has happened this last day and a half. Major MAJOR WoW stuff. Ok. Not even close to major. But each event got me really excited.

Firstly, I created a priest. I always said that priests were one of the few classes that I wasn’t enterested in. I didn’t dislike them, but I didn’t like them either. Then Davinna dueled a Discipline Priest for well over 20 minutes before we finally called it a tie, and that got my attention. The Call to Arms is Warsong Gulch, so it’s the perfect time to create an alt. And my lvl 12 rogue, who I so wish I was good at, was irritating me. I actually made my priest as a trash toon, meaning I had no intention of working to lvl her, and just play her when I’m bored. But it turns out I LOVE being a priest. It just fits. The HoT’s and DoT’s, the look, and even the name. For me, naming a toon of mine is a big thing. Usually, once I decided on a race and class, I will muse, often times for days, over a suitable name. This toon I dubbed Pualani with barely any thought. And she is well on her way to level 23! I can’t believe I created her only two days ago. I love WSG weekends.
