Well, it’s been an interesting few days to say the least. First off, I’m seriously long overdue on congratulating Kamalia on her spanking new Ashes of A’lar. It was the result of something exotic finally dropping during a Laid Back Raid. I joked in the days that followed that perhaps I should stick with organizing them but not actually attending (as was the case Sunday night). Perhaps my not going is a good luck charm. Some of the others disagree and for that I say thanks.
I’ve not been on a whole lot this week. ‘Tis the season and all that wonderful jazz, but truth be told another hobby of mine took a great deal of my time and because I like to keep that stuff organized, I’ve been working on that. But, in the meantime I have gotten a little bit of Warcraft action in.
This morning, I joined Healblade and Shoryl and her friend Farron to delve into Blackwing Lair to hunt us some pets. First boss dropped the egg, alas I rolled a 13 to Shoryl’s 77. Looks like I have something to farm again as I think that little guy is awesome looking.
Speaking of pets, I went over 350 battles and managed to amass 18 rares. I have no idea if that includes environment rares or what, but if it does it pretty much sums up my luck. I’ve focused more on just getting various pets than their rarity, but even still. Having said that, in less than twenty battles yesterday and today…FIVE RARES!?!?!
While I had battle pets on the brain, I thought I would visit the Blizzard shop for a couple of items, as I still had not purchased Mrs. Amateur’s Cinder Kitten. Unfortunately I didn’t think of it until I was on my way to work. So, when I went to checkout and entered my ID, this is what I got:
Due to suspicious activity, this account has been locked. A message has been sent to this account’s email address containing details on how to resolve this issue. Visit http://us.battle.net/account/locked.html for more information.
Not this again…
I go to login to hotmail, but that doesn’t want to cooperate in the sligthest (I sure hope it’s the firewalls here at work). I curse and swear a bit (in the sense that Thrall’s a bit of a Shaman), and then get an idea. Second account! I repeat the process and low and behold I get the very same message. Okay, so I’m definitely thinking it’s something work related. But the good news is, gmail isn’t stupid and I can login to it. So I go through the process, which involves resetting my password (can’t wait to likely have to do THAT again when I get home) and then head back to the shop.
First happy moment? The order is saved (man did I have to refrain from buying that Orc Shaman…still need that figure). Second happy? It allowed me to enter the information. AMEN! So my order is complete. Alas, I can’t redeem my Lil’ Ragnaros until I access my hotmail account, but that’s ok. So long as it sorts out, the rage will go away.
I’d love to share what else I picked up, but prying eyes could be receiving hands…
