I was always meaning to move my auto-run key as the way my laptop is designed, I had it next to my Print Screen key. More often than not I’d snap a picture when I was actually meaning to run or autofly. This is probably the only instance where it worked out in my favour as I got this great shot (complete with witty guild banter).
In an effort to look good for my Lich King burning party Saturday night, I designed a new outfit for Tumunzahar with MogIt. I had a couple pieces already so then I just went about completing it and then set out to gather the pieces. One was an easy quest reward and one a dirt simple tailoring recipe but the tricky part was going to be getting the chestpiece. I had to kill Murmur. Not that big a deal, as it’s Shadow Labs and I can easily solo it. However, as a Holy Priest with ZERO hit there were times where it was tedious simply because my damage is horrid. And even worse is the fact you can’t skip two of the bosses before Murmur. You also have to kill the trash in both of those rooms plus Murmur’s. Again, just tedious. Took a total of nine runs (3 of which glitched or I got DC’d) before the bugger finally coughed them up this morning. So no more having to go there. Of course, that leaves me debating whether to try killing Quagmirran for Saintvache’s sword before the weekend. Then again, I plan to play a great deal on Saturday as a grand exit so I may include that in my ventures. Difference is THAT one is Heroic so I’ll only get one shot at it.
Speaking of Saturday, there’s been positive response thus far and tomorrow I’ll post a list of who’s coming where. That way if you mentioned you were coming and I missed it, we’ll catch it in time and we’ll make certain you’re along. As I say, I’ll be around most of the day should anyone be up for anything else. For those that are coming, I should mention I don’t have or use vent. It’s something that didn’t occur to me since my guildmates are aware of it and I just take it for granted. If you guys hook up on a channel, that’s cool. I may try to get the Linux run version up and running before then but I make no guarantees. I’m also the type of person who you look at and go “this is what you need to do for this fight.” I’m good with direction and then experiencing it. I suck at watching videos for a fight (I still fail at the Saftey Dance) and I’d just rather go WHAT THE HELL WAS THAT? when something crazy happens. No doubt Tome and I will react the same.
Speaking of reactions, there was no shortage of talk regarding my post yesterday. I appreciate all of the shared thoughts and comments regarding the whole thing. I particularly thank Ironyca for popping in and responding. Having her explain it wasn’t a planned segment discussion or anything helped me understand a bit more though I still don’t “get it” and that’s no fault of hers. It was nice to get her overall thoughts on Mog Madness as well. Very flattering.
I continue to get comments and e-mails regarding my no longer playing after Saturday and people wishing me well in “whatever comes next.” I just wanted to stress once more that I’m not leaving. I’m heading into Azerothian retirement but the blog will continue on. Some people know that, but others gave me the impression they thought I was closing up shop and I just wanted to reiterate that is not the case at all. It will be business as usual and if I ever need to get into Azeroth for post-related items, I still have a trial account and the keys to Mrs. Amateur’s account as well.
Is it Saturday yet?
