Stop! Panda Time

October 2, 2012

Ok, Pandera has been out for almost a week now, and I love it. I’m loving everything about it. The quests, the zones, the pandas, the pet battles, everything I’ve done so far has been awesome.
Oh, and the money. Good lord, have I been making money off of fishing. Golden carp are selling insanely high on Argent Dawn. I mean like several thousand per stack. I’m actually think of just fishing during my lunches now to get more of these wonderful, wonderful little fishies.
I know there are people out there who hate it. I see people in trade and on forums who are constantly bashing this xpac so far. Really? You don’t like it, so you are going to sit in trade and whine and moan about it? So are speaking for everyone when you say how horribad Blizz is for making pandas? If so please stop. Stop right there. Do not pass go. Do not collect $200. See everyone plays WoW differently. If you don’t like it, fine you don’t have to like it. However, however, please, please, please make your own chat channel, and go cry somewhere else.
Now where was I. Oh yes, pandaland. I know some where upset when we couldn’t fly right away, but I like it. I forgot how many awesome looking ground mounts there are in the game. Yes, some of the flying mounts are gorgeous. Wife keeps going on how she loves the purple fire chickens, and wants us to get them. I am a collector. I have the blue dragonhawk. I have almost 150 different pets. I love hunting and trying to get as many toys and pets and mounts as I can. I use two different add ons that I use for my pet and mount collections. Rmount and rpet. Both are light weight add ons that randomly summon a mount or a pet. They both come with a sliding scale that let you increase the chance of getting your favorite one.
So I hope everyone is having fun, and seeing the sights, and fishing, and farming, and dragon raising, and everything else out there.

Back In Action

September 10, 2012

What a glorious weekend it was. I can honestly say that this last weekend was the best in a long time. We started Thursday by spending the day finishing up the last seven of our day of the dead bracelets, and soldering several tile necklaces. Now all I have to do is get the pictures taken so we can get them up and listed. So hopefully we will have them up next weekend. From there it got better.

She’s Back
Then Friday came. Now Wife has been hinting to me that she might want to start playing WoW again. Needless to say, I was thrilled with the idea. Then it happened. While we were packing up the orders I had to run up to the post office, she said that when I got back, she wanted to hop on WoW and start playing again.
That’s right. She wanted to hit 85 on her toon, Gweninuu, before MoP came out.
I don’t think I ever packed that many packages and made it to the post office that fast. So after getting her up and going we set up her talents and off we went. We were gonna head to BWL but when we got there turns out you still need to be attuned to it. So off we went to UBRS. Burned through it as fast as two hunter can. Killed the General. Lo and behold… I forget to have her pick up the quest from the Quartermaster outside… So out we go, find and the Quartermaster, run back to the orb, and she’s finally attuned. Needless to say we still didn’t get past Razorgore.
So we stopped doing BWL for now. So she decided she wanted to start leveling from 80 to 85. In less than a day we got Wife and my shaman from 80 to 82, and got the achievement for 115 quests in Mt. Hyjal.
So now we’re working on Deepholme, and having a blast doing it. We set up Mumble on her computer, so while I’m at lunch, we can knock out a few quests each day I’m at work.
All I can say is it’s great to hop on the game with her again, and that she’s having fun playing WoW again.
So off we go, getting our toons to 85 so we can be ready for MoP to land on the 25th. So until next time don’t forget to reload, so you don’t run out of ammo.

Fall Cleaning Time

September 5, 2012

Ok, I noticed something over the weekend. My blog roll. It’s well…kinda empty. Most of the blogs are dead, dying or aren’t around anymore. So yeah I need to clean it up, trim it down, and freshen it up.
Oh and I want to welcome Pike back WoW blogosphere.

Putting It Together

September 2, 2012

So happy Labor Day weekend to those of us in the US. It’s hot sticky and rainy right now, but not much you can do about that.
We’ve been busy this weekend, we spent most of it working on 10 new Day of the Dead bracelets, and all that’s left is just getting pictures of them. Once that’s done, and they’re listed, I will let all you crafty types know in a new post.
I finally got a chance to play around with the new specs and talents this weekend, and I am really enjoying them. BM is a hella fun spec, with tons of focus and damage out the wahoo. Fuzzbaal the furry warrior finally 80 this weekend also. Now I have to say, fury warriors have changed… a lot. I’m still getting used to the new rotation and abilities. Things like wild swing instead of slam are very ummm different than they used to be. Oh, and I forgot how much of a pain Hyjal was at level 80.

Brick by Brick
So Wife and I were at Walmart the other night picking up stuff to make cheeseburger soup. Yes I know, it sounds crazy, but trust me it’s awesome, I’ll have to post the recipe sometime. While there we there, we had to resupply our dominos stash. I looked up and saw they had gotten the Mega Blok Warcraft sets back in stock. So after grabbing the dominos, I walked over and started browsing through the sets. Wife comes over and asks me what I’m looking at. I tell her about the WoW sets, and how I was thinking of picking up one, and deciding between the Worgen on a griffin, or the Gnome on the flying machine. Wife just looked at me and said, “why not both.”
Yep the woman who rolls her eyes at me when I start to geek out over stuff, has given me her blessings to buy more desk top goodies.
God I love this woman….
So with out further ado, here they are.

So until next time don’t forget to reload, so you don’t run out of ammo.

So Far, So Good…

August 29, 2012

So the patch landed yesterday. Everything is different. Account wide pets, mounts, and achievements. I haven’t gotten much of a chance to play around with it, I mean I’m still trying to get everyone’s talent points set.
One thing I have noticed, that I am kinda disappointed in, is that we hunters can no longer display a melee weapon. I mean I understand we don’t use them any more, but come on, I have some pretty bad ass weapon mogs.
The other big thing right now, is it seems that aspects will be taken off of the GCD Ghostcrawler said. It seems that the outcry by the hunter community was enough that the devs took notice, and it seems that will be going back to the old way until they can find a better way.
Oh, and one more thing. If you got the digital deluxe version, you got the pet and the mount today. Which reminds me, I need to get around to ordering it.
So until next time, don’t forget to reload, so you don’t run out of ammo.

It’ll Be Here Before You Know It

August 28, 2012

Hey all while I’m waiting for patch 5.0 to finish in WoW, I thought I’d take a moment to give you crafty types put there a heads up on Etsy.
We just finished making and listing a whole bunch of ghoulishly fun Halloween bracelets on Etsy. I will be posting pictures of them here later tonight.

An End to an Era

August 27, 2012

So are you ready?
5.0 lands tomorrow.
No melee.
No minimum range.
No pet talents.
Any pet, any spec.
New talent trees.
Huge patch… I mean 21 GB.
Queues… Big ones.
Server crashes, restarts, and lost of other tomfoolery.
Can’t wait.!

Starting Anew

August 21, 2012

So it’s been awhile. I know I said
I was going to start posting more often back in June, and I haven’t. It’s been a busy and rough summer for me. Between eBay, and Etsy, and spending a week in the hospital, I didn’t get much time to hop on WoW, or do the beta thing.

However, time passes, and things change. Our business has expanded this year, now we sell on eBay and Etsy. This has taken up a huge chunk of my time. Unfortunately, that extra time had to come from somewhere, and that just so happened to be my game time.

But fear not, with MoP coming out on September 25th, I am hoping to get more game time back in my life. I’ve been trying to finish things up in WoW before the new expansion hits, I’ve even been pushing to try to get things done before 5.0 comes out. Running TB dailies until my eyes bleed. Looking for that lil guy Pebbles, farming JP to convert to Honor to buy the PvP mounts, running heroic MT for the white chicken mount. These are what I’ve been filling up the end of Cata with. Ph and hitting up the LFR when time permits. Oh, and I almost forgot, try to get Fuzzbaal to 85 also.

So that about covers everything that’s been happening in my world as of late. Not much beyond work, and trying to squeeze in some game time. So until next time don’t forget to reload, so you don’t run out of ammo.

Reopening…Soon

June 19, 2012

Sure is dusty in here…
No, I’m not dead yet, just busier than usual. Please keep an eye out, I really DO plan on writing more again…soon. So keep as eye out, see what’s coming, and stick around.

Find me on Etsy.com

January 20, 2012
