Thursday Thought Patterns

Another musings post if you will permit me.

  • Mists of Pandaria launches July September 25th.  The average response seemed to be “finally” from those I spoke with last night.  The next eight weeks should be interesting.
  • Laid Back Raids is updated through most of August.  I managed to get a few requests in there.
  • I wonder what LBR’s success will be like after Mists launch?  I can’t imagine it too different from what it is now.  Some will pass, some will come.
  • Others might just want a break from whatever Mists content they’re on.
  • Some will just want to take their Panda into old content.
  • Or their Monk.
  • I’m ashamed to admit I’ve considered rolling a Gnome Monk named Junkshot.
  • The deadline for the Mogolympics is coming Tuesday.  Then the real fun begins…so to speak.
  • I wonder if the other judges will speak to me when this is all over?
  • I need to put a confirmed section on the Mogolympics information page this weekend.
  • Posthumous isn’t on hiatus or anything.  The next chapter is in the works, but my time to dedicate to it has been sparse.
  • Yes, I’m writing it as I go.  I have a few key points in my head, but the rest is more like que sera sera.
  • Tome got Anzu a little while back.  Mrs. Amateur the Baron’s Reigns to drop.  Ratters had double mount luck recently.  Me? (NSFW)
  • Glad most people seem to understand my “not buying Mists philosophy.”
  • Someone else told me last night they’re in the exact same frame of mind (minus Guild Wars 2).
  • I think Blizzard needs to come through on this one.
  • Cataclysm wasn’t terrible, but it turned (quite?) a few people off.  Two in a row wouldn’t be good.
  • I expect them to have that in mind, and deliver a better expansion.
  • I expect games like Guild Wars 2 and Secret World to force them to knock one out of the park over the next year.
  • Working on another Transmog outfit for Tum.
  • Got everything but the shoulders.  The two options I’ve chosen are from Molten Core and Naxx.
  • I think I should have considered this before scheduling LBR this week…
  • I still want my Red Proto.
  • Tum’s the closest on that, as I think he needs about a half dozen achievements yet.
  • Speaking of mounts, I’m in the process of determining what land mounts and flying mounts each (eligible) character wants.
  • No good can come of it, but account-wide mounts might just make it easier.
  • Siori’s Exalted with the Cenarion Expedition and Liouxpold’s already got the puppy dog eyes going…which looks really creepy on a space goat.
  • I wonder if everyone who’s geared up in the last month feels a sense of “why did I do that?”
  • Not saying they should, it’s just an observation.
  • Once again, greens will replace epics in the first two days.
  • Am I seriously the only one who sees a problem with that?
  • Linear stats is still the way to go, far as I’m concerned.
  • Hrm…work break’s over.

    I will speak to you but I will only address you as Junkshot.

      My name starts with a J…does that count?

    About that Red Proto – Gurdrid has her eye on one as well. Jes sayin.
    Ack! Tuesday! I need to work on Mogolympics. I’ve only got two outfits done! Well, whatever I get done, I’ll turn in. After all, some countries don’t join all the events. 🙂

    • JD Kenada July 26, 2012 / 7:52 pm

      Yeah, I suppose I should’ve left that option of enter as many or as few as you’d like. *sigh* Hindsight.

      I kinda thought Shoryl had an affinity for red.

    Since my guild is just really starting Team 2, and I’m “gearing” I have to say I’m thrilled! Did the same exact thing with LK, by accident, but I’m always a day late and dollar short. I am having a blast with better gear.

    And I’m with Tome: Junkshot must live!!!

    • JD Kenada July 26, 2012 / 7:54 pm

      I can’t believe the love for Junkshot…

    Hmmmm…AQ in two weeks…imma definitely have to be there, lol.

    • JD Kenada July 26, 2012 / 7:55 pm

      Looking forward to have you joining in on the fun. You can keep a pulse with Nav, or send me an e-mail to real ID hookup.

    I suspect that my participation in Laid Back Raids will remain about the same — I’ll show up for Horde nights whenever I can make it, and I’ll bring whatever character most wants stuff from the content that’s scheduled for the evening. I do hope that your not buying Mists won’t prevent LBR from heading into T11 once everyone else has started to pick up some T14.

    I’m excited to see the Mogolympics results start rolling out in another couple of weeks! Are you going to do a bigger “get your entries in!” post, or just let this mention suffice? How are you going to organize the entries for display and viewing? Perhaps a set of Picasa galleries/albums, one for each event?

    • JD Kenada July 26, 2012 / 7:57 pm

      I will be doing a more formal post on Monday. After all the entries are received I will once again go over all the details of the events playing out. I will say there is the potential for each event to be “displayed” differently.

    I like your thought patterns. So logical, so orderly.

    So boy like.

    And, someone’s interview is coming soon… WHERE IS THAT ON YOUR MUSINGS HUH?

    And I’m not calling you Junkshot. I can’t call you anything except JD. Only because it could be James Dean, or Jack Daniels or OMG your real name 😀 and I like it like that.

    • JD Kenada July 27, 2012 / 4:39 am

      That interview is still over a week away Mrs. smarmy pants. Besides, not like visitors to YOUR blog have a link to YOUR podcast if they want to listen. 😉

      • Navimie July 27, 2012 / 4:59 pm

        Do people really want that? I thought it seemed a bit… self promoting. I get a bit embarrassed by that.

        • JD Kenada July 28, 2012 / 5:35 am

          …and I’m rather humbled about your excitement over my appearance. 😀

  7. cuppy July 26, 2012 / 9:40 pm

    I really want to come to the August 4 night! =D I will hope to be there.

    • JD Kenada July 27, 2012 / 4:39 am

      What a coincidence! We hope to have you!

    • JD Kenada July 27, 2012 / 10:06 am

      BWAHAHA…I blame thinking it was Smarch.
