My World of Warcraft subblog focusing primarily on learning how to dual-box effectively, but also prone to game-related tangents.
Oh Bartender, wherefore art thou Out of Date?!? *mourns her Addons*
…No, seriously, I can’t play right now. I am so dependent on the mouse at this point that fighting with the default actionbars is driving me a bit batty. So yesterday’s grand return to the life of treadmill gaming too a quick turn towards Farmville.
Which isn’t a bad thing considering I’m still churning my way through a food-themed bucket list. Just a few more meats (and one EVIL fish) to farm and I’ll have Master of Pandaren Cooking in paw.
I have a few ideas on what I want to do next, but I need my kitty-killit buttons to work first. *mutters*
So yeah, downloaded Dominos and it’s off to try something with a bit more teeth. …and plant things. *shifty eyes*
Any Minute Now…
Since I decided on a fishing and cooking (and farming!) themed Bucket List, I’ve actually made pretty good progress. I wasn’t fond of the idea of chasing the low drop rate items, but I’ve been lucky so far. Let’s hope that keeps up… *crosses fingers*
I was very tempted to drop everything and start Pet Battling instead thanks to Navi’s post, but I’ve steeled my resolve and am going to resist. … At least for another few days.
Thus follows my notes about polishing off the two achievements. (I’ll try to keep up a ‘how I muddle through’ theme running as the week goes on.) Continue reading
I’ve decided to ditz around with grinding Tiller and Angler rep and cooking as my next One-Item Bucket List… although it’s more of a theme than an item.
So far I’ve managed to eat my way through a good portion of Pandaren Cuisine and a decent chunk of Pandaren Delicacies. I really need to hit up the old world(s) dailies as well, so I can pick those up– but for now I’m content to just focus on ticking off all of the Pandaren checkboxes. *noms*
The fishing is also well under way– I’m a smidgen away from Zen Master Fisherman and hopefully tracking down the missing fish for Pandarian Angler won’t be too much of a headache. … I hope.
I figure it will take me a while to get Master of Pandaren Cooking, not to mention the others, so this should be a good first quarter goal for 2013.
After 95 days of casual meanderings towards my goal… yesterday I finally hit 90, which means my one-item bucket list is now complete!
And that means that I need a bigger bucket.
There’s an infinite list of Things To Do now, with all the old content from Cata that I never finished (which is most of it) and all the new content from MoP that is finally within grasp of my claws!
- I want to get a Giant Farm.
- I want to harass the new factions who wouldn’t talk to my sub-90 self.
- I want to Battle ALL the Pets!
- I want to run dungeons and maybe raids.
- Heck I want to run all the old raids and dungeons that I never did back when the world was new…
So, yeah, nicely bit of awesome to finish off 2012 with, but now I need to figure out what to do next!
What, no catnip?!
Are you a casual player? Is hitting 90 going to take you more than a couple days? Not quite sure what to do with your farm in the meantime?
Then read on, dear person who is reading, read on!
It occurred to me that the research I did might be useful to others, so here’s a quick guide on how to put your four measly little garden plots to good use. Continue reading
No fears, dear readers! I’m still walking on my treadmill while playing World of Warcraft and I’ve got some awesome roughed out posts on how to level and alt while learning to play waiting in queue for 2013.
In fact I’ve gotten so used to it that I get fidgety if I try and play sitting down. *celebrates small victory over her brain*
Anywho, once again I find myself horribly behind on the World of Treadcraft posts– and instead of playing catch-up I’m just going to throw in the towel.
I’m not quite where I want to be in terms of spending an hour a day on the treadmill, but to be honest using the weekly posts as a goad/reward isn’t working.
The archive page will remain up, but it’s coming down off the sidebar (the whole sidebar is getting an overhaul). It was fun while it lasted– and it did help to get an awesome habit up and rolling!
As you can tell by the lack of a Ding post, I’m still dawdling my way to 90 on my main.
There’s something about reaching the level cap that seems unnervingly final. I know this time around there are plenty of things to do other than the dungeon grind that I got burnt out on in LK, but I’m still leery of ‘running out of things to do.’
(I’ll have to temporarily hang up my dual-boxing membership card in 2013 until finances get sorted out). Continue reading
Starting Milecount: 166.40
Goal Miles for Week 32: 14.00
Actual Miles for Week 32: 6.25
Total Miles Week 1-32: 172.65
This week didn’t start out well, thanks to the hurricane, but they did pick up again as the week rolled on. I’m trying to get into the habit of walking at least a mile a day, come heck or high water. Finding 30 minutes shouldn’t kill me… in theory.
I was a little worried that I wasn’t going to hit 89 any time soon, but the XP gods smiled upon me and I ended up ding’ing a lot earlier than expected. Which is good, since it means I should definitely hit 90 by the end of November!
(Apparently when one quests full time it’s slightly faster leveling than playing with gardens and leveling cooking/fishing. *innocent whistles*) Continue reading
These woods are lovely, dark, and deep,
But I have promises to keep,
And miles to go before I sleep,
And miles to go before I sleep.
- Robert Frost (Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening)
Per the Titan Bar plugin I have 9 hours to go to 89, which works out to 18 miles, give or take. Thus in a week or so I should hit 89 and be on that last downhill slope. (I refuse to think of how many more hours/miles/days it’s actually going to take me to hit 90. :p) Continue reading
World of Treadcraft!
Not that you can tell by the dearth of World of Treadcraft posts (which I will catch-up with by this weekend), but I’m still trudging my way through Azeroth.
I’m to the point where a 2mph pace seems natural and unless I’m at mile four I honestly don’t notice any affect on my gameplay… So it’s time to kick it up a notch!
Where notch = post useful content.
But I’m not sure what to post about my treadmill gaming setup, so I figured I’d give a shout-out into the emptiness and see if anyone had any questions… *pokes emptiness*
