So if I haven’t been playing my hunter much, what have I been doing?  I’m glad you asked. Well first off, that’s my pet collecting toon, so the squashling was top order.  I managed to get one off the headless horseman yesterday, and then a 2nd dropped out of a treat sack the very next trick or treat I did.

I then went to Skekkis to do my skyguard and noted that I was at 18500/21000.  Probably 3 days from getting my Nether Ray Fry.  Then, in /general, someone asks if anyone wants to kill Terrok a couple times.  At 500rep a kill, I sure do.  At the end of that I have 400 rep left to go.  Thats about 1 shadow dust turn in and the grinding to get those 6.  So, 20min later pet number 68.

That leaves one last project.  In BC, they raised the level of the Booty Bay guards from the 50’s to 67.  And they’re tough.  Luckily, while 3.0 has raised many guards to 75, Booty Bay has not.  Since Bliz may figure out their mistake at anytime, I decided it was time for my bloodsail parrot.  Yes, I’m mad.

Now you know where all the runecloth from scholo and strat runs are going in a bit.

So as I was saying I was looking through titles for my characters, and for Wnodis the only one that both fits and is relatively attainable is Exalted.  Yes, I’m crazy, but hear me out.

I’m already getting exalted with several reps for the pets, and I’m sure that will continue in WotLK.  I also played tons of AV with her back pre-BC so I built up many of the home city reps.  And remember that runecloth I’m getting from scolo and strat.

So there you go, shorter post, but much more game time.

One last note, for what ever reason, I never before thought of bringing my laptop into the bathroom even though I’ve had wireless for 3 years and my laptop for 4 years.

Yes, I am writing this post as I poop.  You’ve read it, you can’t unread it.

Too Busy Playing

October 26, 2008 at 8:57 pm (World of Warcraft)

So very few updates here, but I blame Blizzard.

I have a lot to say about Hunters, but I haven’t spent much time on mine due to the new Achievement system.  Why?  I really don’t know.  I was totally prepared to ignore Achievements entirely, and just get whatever I ended up with. And then…

At the Dawn of a Bright New Age

October 13, 2008 at 10:44 pm (Guide, Hunter, Pets, Warcraft, World of Warcraft) (, )

Everything points to 3.0 being launched tomorrow, and I’m very interested to see how everything shakes down.  Hunters have quite a few changes to deal with, so I decided to make a list of things to do when I login after patching.  Some are obvious, some not so much.  Hopefully, this post will get you out of the BC mindset and to the start of WotLK.

Brewfest summary

October 5, 2008 at 3:56 pm (World of Warcraft)

All told there were at 60 summons, 48 kills, and 1 kodo dropped, 0 rams.  During this time I’ve met some of not only the worst players, but the worst people in my 4 years of playing WoW.

I had over 450 tickets taking up space in my bank since last year and I thought getting a ram was at least a sure thing.  Suddenly, Bliz makes them worthless except for clothes. They add a kodo and get me all excited about actually having my favorite mount on one of my mains, and I only see one drop (no ram ever) in 13 days of attempts, with much more time invested and much more aggravation.

So other than the kodo how was it.  Lame.  The minipet is no longer a neat little quest but a stupid 50s buy.  The pink elephant quest is gone.  The 2 ram riding quests remain, but they’re payoff is still much lower than the amount of effort in actually doing them.  The only bright point is the return of the dark iron attacks, and even those sucked if you didnt happen to have 10+ people around to fend them off.  On my low pop, horde bank alt I was only able to complete it 2x (barely) and only at peak hours.

Seriously, Bliz.  You ruined my favorite WoW holiday for me.
