Frost Mage Challenge, I’m done

I had something like 30 wipes and people have said it’s taken 50 or more.  You know something?  It’s not worth it.  Also, do you wanna know why it takes that many attempts? RNG.  I can get to the last phase no problem but when Raest spawns the runes on a purple circle (which slows you) or on top on mobs over and over, it’s not my skill that’s a problem, it’s the fucking encounter.  FUCK IT. I mean how the fuck am I going to stand on a rune in THIS SITUATION?


Or how do I kite Karam, the mobs, and attack and interrupt a hand with all this shit on the ground?


Plus beyond that, it’s buggy because Karam will start to just run through obstacles and floors, like he does here:


I’ve gotten Karam down to 10 and even 6% but to hell with it.  I do not feel like wiping 100x on the off chance that I get a ‘lucky’ encounter where the mobs are in one location and the rune isn’t under them or on a circle.

Making things better

I’ve noticed a few things that have been made better, quality of life type changes.  The quest where you have to boost the fighters around the Drowned Gardens, now lets you boost fighters that were already boosted by someone else.  Before if they had the buff from someone else, yours didn’t ‘count’.  That could get annoying, standing around an npc checking for the buff and when it was going to expire, 2 minutes at a time.

I finally got my first legendary, some 250+ world quests in.


They also included a 15 minute buff called Body and Soul (like the priest buff but longer) for the priest hall.  Now you can run around fast for much longer, yay!


Oh and I’ve been raiding with SPM (Stormpike Militia) and we’ve been doing quite well!  I enjoy raiding.  Apparently the team team in Time Lords all left to create a raiding guild.  I don’t understand why they had to leave to do that, but whatever.

We got the last boss to 7%, but it got late and we kept wiping. I’m sure we can start heroics soon enough though.

The druid quests have been rather epic, I love that big blue bear.  It’s uh, Ursoc, or something important!


Then this was Ashamane, after all the feral weapon is called that.


This game really is pretty, by the way.

Steampunk Food Buff

Apparently eating whatever someone put down tonight puts you into steampunk or, ‘Gilneas’ clothing. wowscrnshot_112116_214327

For the 12 year anniversary, you get a WoW tabard too.


We’ve been doing the Emerald Nightmare with Krienn leading and people from Stormpike Militia, and it’s been going pretty well.  I forgot I liked raiding after that nightmare that was raiding with Post Mortem during the last few raid leaders.


Angeycakes got me hooked up with the raid group that his/her guild was doing last night. WoWScrnShot_081816_210736

Spicecakes was there too, and although Angey said she’s ok, I still found her grating.  There was a lot of what I remembered back in the DS raid like “tee hee, I haven’t played for a year, I’m not set up, I don’t know what I’m doing, can you repeat that” and so on.



We only wiped a few times.





and now I has my moosie!!


Ashes of Al’ar, on Accident

Moosumz had linked me a new transmog for my druid, which required getting the chest from Kael’thas.  I don’t clear him on a regular basis, we use to do it with Time Lords but that has stopped.  I got my chest, but then also, wait, no way?



Really I’ve been lucky.  My mounts seem to follow a pattern.


The drake from Stonecore was on the BMAH, I bid in error on an invite, and lost 30k.  A GM gave it back.  I went to Stonecore after on a whim and boom, the mount dropped.

Grumpus mount was sought after during the Winter Veil event.  I grumbled about leveling my priests garrison to 3 so just I could do the quests.  Did the quests, got the savage gift, boom Grumpus mount.

Now the Ashes thing. Crazy!
