For me, personally, my time in Azeroth was almost none. I snuck in an hour this morning, which is about 45 minutes more than the rest of the week combined. Seems my prognostication about becoming busy were true. Even without nice weather this week, I kept occupied.
I did stumble upon a couple of new blogs this week. Crits & Giggles, Warlockery and Neri Approves are all new to my blogroll as each brings aspects of enjoyable reading and information to my morning coffee. I’m going to specifically single out Neri’s event, Trashy Transmog Tournament. It’s brilliant and I’m sorry that I missed out on the entry period. Still, I cast my vote for one of the contestants and I urge you to go and do the same.
If you missed it, Euphyley joined the proud and the few -the true Ironmen! The WoW Rare Spawns author hit 85 on Ironstevo, becoming the first Forsaken to do so (and just the second Warlock). I also noticed from her post that Earthen Ring (US) has four of the nine 85’s on the official Ironman Challenge boards. Nothing wrong with being known as a realm that does it the hard way, or at the very least is up for a challenge. I’d rather that than be the realm that’s a challenge just to interact with (*cough Khaz’goroth US *cough*).
edit: Correction, Earthen Ring (EU) has the other three
As I didn’t play much, Saintvache still isn’t 85. In fact, he’s barely halfway there at this point. I want to make that final push and join Ysera’s Daughter and the rest of the awesome Myth folk in raiding (and learning to Holy Pally it up)…I just can’t seem to endure that final push. It’s a bit frustrating for me, and I’m sure it is for them as well. I know they need/want a Pally healer and want me to get there, too, so that said healer would be me.
I finally posted the start of Posthumous, a Forsaken story that has been in the works for a very long time. The introduction was a slight bit shorter than I had planned, as somehow the darn thing published instead of saving as a draft. Oh well, made it work.
I also postponed the next Transmogrification event by a month. I had planned to start it this weekend but long term planning shows that when most important, I might not be able to dedicate the time to it that would be warranted. A month later that will certainly be more than easy to accomplish.
Now, if you’ll excuse me it’s time for some scheduled WoW time. See if we can’t snag a Blue Drake or a Twilight Drake. Go Laid Back Raids!
edit #2: Congrats to Shoryl’s Guildmate Phinkbunny, who ended up with the Twilight Drake tonight!
