So GOLD In Here

Current favourite thing in WoW: Going transmog hunting on the Warrior, and taking pretty screenshots of her while doing so.

What’s even more fun is getting lots of gold for doing 25 HC Cataclysm raids! Each boss drops around 125G, as well as lots of lovely transmogs and vendor items. Some DS trinkets and weapons vendor for 40+ gold each! And with each boss on 25 man dropping LOTS of items, the gold quickly mounts up.

Blackwing Descent is a wonderfully easy little jaunt, the only slight issue may be Maloriak, but as long as you smash him before all his aberrations reach you, you’ll be fine.

Nefarian has bugged a bit once, where the lava phase is meant to start and just DOESN’T. That was annoying.

Chimaeron you can probably kill shortly after the first Massacre. Heal a little bit after he casts it.

Bastion of Twilight is also easy, though Halfus and Sinestra do occasionally have hairy moments. The former due to a MASSIVE healing debuff, and the latter can just be generally hurty. Smack them until they die, before they kill you!

Sinestra requires you to kill eggs either side of her before you can damage her properly. Don’t forget that.

Theralion and Valiona also have a hurty part, but there’s a large gap between uses of that ability (Blackout) which allows you time to either heal up or just smack the dragons down.

Firelands is so, so easy. Shannox is the only worry, and that’s due to his stupid dog Rageface, but wonderful news! So long as you engage him in a tank spec, he won’t rage on your face! This means going in with Defensive Stance instead of Gladiator.

Majordomo Staghelm stands out not as being difficult, but being BORING because of his ridiculously large healthpool. Bring a book, maybe.

As usual with Dragon Soul, the only difficult encounter is Spine of Deathwing, and that requires you to be patient and concentrating on the matter at hand. Thankfully somebody wrote a guide to soloing that boss (it was me, I wrote that).

Hagara is not difficult, but again potentially boring because you need to kill her before she does her special thing. She USUALLY does the Lightning Storm one first (at least she does for me), and as you can’t do that solo (unless you have a pet you can use to make the chain) you have to sit and wait for like FOREVER.

Ultraxion is a DPS race. Bring Drums of Fury, they work as a slightly less powerful version of Heroism/Bloodlust.

Throne of 4 Winds is actually surprisingly easy to do solo on 25 HC. I thought Conclave would be my stumbling point and I’d have to knock it down to Normal, but apparently not. Just hop to each platform and smack each boss until it dies. Move quickly!

Cataclysm Bosses That Apparently Drop Mounts

Yeah right, they don’t exi… wait, they do?

  • Ultraxion (Dragon Soul N/H): Experiment 12-B
  • Madness of Deathwing (Dragon Soul N): Reins of the Blazing Drake
  • Madness of Deathwing (Dragon Soul N/H): Life-Binder’s Handmaiden
  • Alysrazor (Firelands N/H): Flametalon of Alysrazor
  • Ragnaros (Firelands N/H): Smoldering Egg of Millagazor
  • Al’Akir: (Throne of the Four Winds N/H): Reins of the Drake of the South Wind

 

A Word from Ikralla

WoWScrnShot_032215_214303

“Oi! Since Warlords dropped, you’ve totally forgotten about me, Ikralla, your grumpy panda monk.”

I’m sorry Ikralla, I’ve been building garrisons and recruiting an army!

“YOU SAW FIT TO STRIP ME OFF AT SOME POINT THOUGH.”

I needed the heirlooms for a Blood Elf! Besides, you don’t look too bad.

WoWScrnShot_032315_144314

“A Blood Elf? Have you seen the size of them? How on Azeroth do you think MY heirlooms would fit a tiny elf?”

I… don’t actually know, that’s a good question. Anyway, you can have your heirlooms back!

WoWScrnShot_032315_144512

“Well, where’s the nearest mailbox?”

You don’t need to do that anymore! Since 6.1 there’s heirloom storage! We can just open a window and create the items again!

“I have literally no idea what any of that means.”

WoWScrnShot_032315_144754

 

Lookin’ good, Ikralla!

“IT’S ABOUT DAMN TIME. You know you left me naked over the winter? Just because I have a furry coat doesn’t mean I’ll be warm in freezing temperatures.”

Yeah, sorry about that dude. I did manage to get you a couple of compensatory bonuses though!

WoWScrnShot_032315_144712

A chauffeur! That… technically you have to share with all the other characters on my account.

“…”

Um, that’s not all!

“…”

WoWScrnShot_032315_144814

 

Heirloom fist weapons!

“Oh. Oh yes, yes I like these!”

Somehow I thought you would.

“So… do you remember where we were when you ABANDONED me?”

I… have no idea. We’ll just wing it, I guess!

“Typical.”

In other news:

I’m in the process of reinstalling Final Fantasy 14 on my laptop. I’ll be based on the Cactuar server!

Sunbuer is level 97. Spires of Arak tends to slow me down massively for some weird reason, so my progress through it is not as swift as I’d like.

Remember I was playing King of Fighters 13 with the boyfriend the other day? Well, I decided on the 3rd character I will use most. Joining Mai and Andy is a dude called K’, which is apparently pronounced “K Dash” despite that not being a dash after his name, but who am I to argue?

You’re all wonderful people ❤

Transmog Post: I’m Blue, Da Ba Dee Da Ba Di

It’s been a long time since I’ve done a transmogrification post, and so I share with you Lixiu, the hunter.bluearmy

As you can see, there’s a distinct theme going on here. This set is a recolour of the War Paint Mail set, and is called the Outrunner Mail. For the most part, they’re BoE pieces you can find in the Wailing Caverns, and Blackfathom Deeps. Yes, our favourite dungeons ever.

WoWScrnShot_081314_001618

The bow is a different kettle of fish. It’s an epic weapon that drops from the Halls of Reflection dungeon, after the Lich King has chased you out his house.

So, what is there in total?

Item List

Pandaren may be my favourite race, but there aren’t many mail sets that look good on them, so this simple, minimalist look is lovely.

WoWScrnShot_081314_001800

And as you’ve seen in the pictures above, the perk of being a hunter is that you can get pets that match your look! Animals become the ultimate accessory!

(I hope D.E.H.T.A. don’t read that!)

Community Project: 3 Things I Love

Via Mr & Mrs WoW comes a call for a more positive game! 

So there’s a lot of negativity floating around, and I like to be a positive person so I wanna participate in this, and I think you all should too!

So without further ado, here’s the 3 things in World of Warcraft that I love!

PANDAREN

pandarenarmy

So yeah, if you’re unfortunate enough to follow me on Twitter, you’ll know that I post a LOT of pictures of my panda characters. People may think they look childish or cartoony, but you know what? I don’t give a crap! I like my characters to look good, and Pandaren look DAMN GOOD. It also helps that pandas are my second favourite animal in the world (behind bunnies!).

I am still upset that I can’t have a panda warlock.

But yes, I think the Pandaren are great. Their story was one that interested me far more than anything Deathwing did, and they’re just ridiculously photogenic, which brings me onto my next choice…

SCREENSHOTS

Let’s face it, some places in Azeroth are just damn beautiful.

ohshit

Some situations, like this panda who apparently spotted me spying on him and his Draenei lover, are amusing.

I like taking screenshots as I do things. Screenshots as I level, telling an amusing story, perhaps. Screenshots of my transmogs. Screenshots of really gorgeous areas of the world. Screenshots of oddities that occur within Azeroth.

I like fiddling with the camera to get a good angle. I like documenting the journeys my characters make. I’d like to think I entertain people on Twitter with my pictures too!

TRANSMOGRIFICATION

This is the thing that keeps me going into old raids/dungeons. This is the thing that gets me going to places in Azeroth I wouldn’t normally step foot in.

This is what makes my characters look DAMN GOOD!

Sure, it may be superficial, but I like my characters to look awesome, and sometimes you need to tailor their look yourself! I turn on MogIt and AtlasLoot, crank up Wowhead, I make note of what I want and where it drops, then I damn well go get it. Maybe it’s just me (it’s not, transmog is a ridiculously popular feature), but I really like my characters having a certain look, a certain feel. It makes me feel more attached to them, like they’re MINE.

So that’s my 3 things I love. What are yours? Let Mr & Mrs WoW know, they’d love to hear, and so would I!
