I was tagged the other day by in a meme that apparently has been running about the internet since 2010! (No idea how long it’s running in the WoW community, but now I’m sort of itching to find out…)
Much like the Sixth Meme it’s a tagging bonzana, but there are some extra rules this time.
1) Acknowledge the blog that nominated you and display the award badge
2) Answer the eleven questions given to you by the blogger who nominated you
3) Provide eleven miscellaneous facts about yourself
4) Nominate eleven blogs of relatively small readership that you think deserve to be better-known
5) Notify the bloggers that you’ve nominated them
6) Compile eleven questions for your nominees to answer
Twelve days of Imperial silk seems a small price to pay to open up some wiggle room in my banks. Well, twelve days per bag… but it’s better than nothing.
The good news is I have plenty of silk ready to go.
The bad news is The August Celestials think I’m a pretty nice kid, but they haven’t seen me around much and aren’t that impressed.
Per Wowjuju, it’ll take me a little over a month to get to Exalted via daily quests, which is a long, looooong way away. So there’s plenty of time to make the rest of the silk while I bribe the nice pandas into loving me.
Apologies to Jenny Joseph, but it’s been one of those, err– months? Years?
I’ve forgotten how long I’ve been running around re-learning How Not To Die. Which is appropriate, given the settings.
But I’m getting better at Not Dying, working out how to fit all the fun of Feral Feral’ing into fewer buttons (and more macros), and slowly… veeeeery slowly gearing up.
WoW seems to be subtly hinting that I need to play my alts.
Where ‘subtle’ means 75% of the build-a-bearcat gear drops aren’t leather.
On the on hand, it is a good way to lure me into looking over all the alts I’ve left to twiddle their thumbs, but on the other– I just want to wear purple goldarnit! With so many people running around, I’ve had more luck finding chests than I have killing anything, so the grind is that much slower.
I still need the chest, boots, helm and belt– which means I’m only 50% done.
Now if I only had enough high levels alts to use all the cloth, mail, and plate by-products…. *mutters*
So…. yes. I might not be spending quite as much time on the Timeless Isle as I should be, but finally all those years of Magic: the Gathering are paying off!
For values of ‘paying off’ that include ‘not getting my butt kicked too horribly.’
Hearthstone is actually a lot of fun and the fact that I don’t have to spend real money on it (although I did buy a booster-pack pair) is a big draw for me. I like the idea of playing to earn cards more, so I’m trying to limit myself to just finishing the daily quests.
In my thus far fruitless quest to Not Die to the giant birds of DOOM has taken a new turn. I’m actually putting research into my rotation instead of just flailing about madly. (To be fair, I’ve done pretty well flailing up until this point.)
I’ve been cautiously setting paw in the new Timeless Isle… but apparently not cautiously enough, because I’m dying. LOTS.
But amoungst the dying (and accidental clicking of Level 25 critters that I immediately surrender to) I have been collecting new gear! 😀
And then dying some more… but I’m slowly but surely moving my keybinds around so my OhShit! buttons are easier to get to. I think I’m the only one out there blowing cooldowns to fight mobs, but what the heck– Bliz gave me the abilities, I may as well use them!
Which means I need to sit down and tweak my macros a bit. I’m still ending up in caster form due to mistimed ‘free’ heals and I need a way back to kitty-kill-it asap.
So in a bit there will be a post of ‘these are my macros, hopefully they’ll help someone else.’ Mind you, I’m probably the only person trying to play with a limited key range (yay treadmills!) but I figure if I can manage to get Feral down to a handful of keys and some mouse-buttons, I must be doing something right! 😉
