Top-Ranked Realm Doesn’t Always Mean Top-Quality Players?

Top-Ranked Realm Doesn’t Always Mean Top-Quality Players?

I said my goodbyes in that post I wrote on January 7th. I handed over my WoW account to my husband, who has the privilege to use my characters for farming purposes. My sub expires next week. It’s up to him if he wants to extend it. Since hanging up my plate gloves, I’ve been busy with classes and homework, fixing up my home, writing my novel and visiting relatives. Every now and then I would lurk on my level…

Happy 2014 !

Happy 2014 !

I know it’s a day early but I just want to greet all of you a happy 2014! (Source: hdwallpapersinn.com) I have been enjoying time outside Azeroth doing the following — deer-hunting (!) with hubby, tinkering with my new iPad, Skyping with loved ones, spending time with my awesome in-laws, and watching the dumbest horror movies on Netflix. Yes, believe it or not, that is an actual screen grab. Check out Howling III if you would like to waste 94…

Season’s Greetings!

Season’s Greetings!

Have a very happy and blessed holiday season, folks! Use this time to get out of Azeroth and build memories with your loved ones to cap this crazy year. As I look forward to Christmas Day and the new year with my own beloved (and unwrap my present that I’ve been wanting to unwrap for the last two weeks and it’s driving me absolutely NUTS!), I will also be transitioning into my earlier-than-originally-planned retirement from WoW. More on that in…

Transmogrification: Valorous Scourgeborne Battlegear

Transmogrification: Valorous Scourgeborne Battlegear

Two weeks of running Naxxramas-25 with my hubby netted me all the tokens for the Valorous Scourgebourne Battlegear so I figured why not try a new mog? Besides, I’d been sporting my “wannabe-rogue” look since 5.3 and figured it was time for a change. Belt: Belt of the Singing Blade Boots: Bladed Steelboots Weapon: Tempest of Chaos Possibly the best-looking Death Knight set from Wrath, in my humble opinion.

The NSA in WoW

The NSA in WoW

From yesterday’s TechCrunch article: NSA And Other Intelligence Agencies Got All Up In Your World Of Warcraft, Xbox Live The next time you’re looking to party with a dark elf Rogue in World of Warcraft, think twice: that could be an NSA agent in disguise. According to new documents from the Snowden leaks, both the NSA and the GCHQ employed World of Warcraft and Second Life, as well as Xbox Live, to gather intel and uncover plots – but it…

New Transitions: A New Guild and Going Casual

New Transitions: A New Guild and Going Casual

I’ve been delinquent about updating my blog and I can only blame it on three things: real life demands, missing my mom and the decision to finally start scaling back on my raiding. On the last one, translation: I’m going casual. The last several weeks have rocked my world in both a good way and a not-so-good way. My mom, whom I had not seen since April last year, came to visit and stayed with me and hubby for a…

Reins of the Onyxian Drake!

Reins of the Onyxian Drake!

OH MY F*CKING DEITY!!!! After countless Onyxia kills on my Death Knight, with this week still as unlucky as ever, I pushed for a second attempt on my much-neglected level 90 Alliance hunter (whom I’ve been meaning to server/faction transfer but recent real-life changes are forcing me to rethink my priorities, but more on that later). Well, call her Little Miss Lucky! 🙂 Thank goodness I don’t ever have to step foot in that instance again!

Happy Thanksgiving, Y’all!

Happy Thanksgiving, Y’all!

Enjoy Turkey Day, folks! And to the WoW players who haven’t gotten their Pilgrim title yet because they’ve been too chicken hesitant like me to do Pilgrim’s Peril in the past, suck it up and get it done! The humiliation and x number of deaths are worth the cheesy 10 points and title. I’m taking a break to spend time with my mom who’s visiting. Have fun with your own loved ones! Peace and blessings.

Dem Spammy Gold Sellers are Back

Dem Spammy Gold Sellers are Back

And for the umpteenth time! This was taken during last night’s raid. I honestly don’t know why those gold sellers think we’d appreciate getting their spammy whispers especially in the middle of a boss fight. So irritating! I also can’t imagine anyone but the laziest of the lazy ordering gold when it’s so easy to earn these days. Farming and selling Frostweave Cloth alone nets me a tidy profit. If you have a well-geared level 90, you can solo so…

Goodbye to Last Tier’s Piece

Goodbye to Last Tier’s Piece

The RNG gods were kind to me tonight! I rolled a 96 on the Warforged version of the neckpiece off Malkorok and got a ring from my bonus roll on Siegecrafter Blackfuse, allowing me to get rid of Band of the Scaled Tyrant from Throne of Thunder — the last of the previous tier’s acquisitions. iLevel is now 564!

Quintessential Quintet

Quintessential Quintet

I have been quietly working on my shadow priest the last several days and tonight she finally hit 90, making her my fifth max level toon! I have also been seriously considering making her a purely PvP toon and try healing in BGs and possibly in arenas. Just something different for me to do when I get bored with PvE and while I debate with myself on whether to play in the next expansion or not.
