The End (of 2012) Is Near


Less than a week remains in the 2012 calendar year, though we already lasted longer than the Mayans figured.  I really wish I knew one of the folks who truly believed the end was nigh.  But, that’s just my surly mood shining through.  I can say with all honesty, The 2012 Challenge is a pipe dream at best.  I pretty much gave up ages ago, truth be told.  I honestly got so busy with Mogging and LBRs and other things that were just quite enjoyable.  Sure I’ve done some leveling, but nowhere near what I needed.  I’ll have to check, but I think there were only two people who crossed the finish line in the end, so kudos to them and everyone else who made the effort.  No, I won’t even consider it for 2013.

Alas, 2013 isn’t here yet so it’s time to make a small list of things I’d like to do before next week:

  • Get Pésus to 20 so that Oddfodder gets his Goblin mount to drive around (though thanks to a change in 5.1 he at least has the Chopper now).
  • Get Carrera to 70.  I know Magik is working on his Shaman now, but she’s long overdue to at least qualify for the Burning Crusade LBR’s.
  • Unlock at least one Pet Battle daily.  I’ve been so focused on the Tamer achievements that I ignored these rather foolishly.
  • Speaking of pets, find a critter in Storm Peaks.  It’s nice to see other players land right beside me and start a battle with a pet I can’t even see.  Another great side effect of CRZ’s.
  • Create my Battle Pet Guild Bank.  This one will require some pre-planning, including who will be the owner.  Might be Vortmar…might be a new alt.  LOL.
  • Outline the upcoming Transmog Contest in an actual post.

There’s a few other things I would definitely like to get done, but I’m not going to bite off more than I can chew at this point.  If I get this list done, I’ll be pretty happy.

    I didn’t quite make it to 2012 in 2012. I’m currently at 1589 raw levels (79%) or 1649 adjusted levels (82%). If I add back in the levels of the characters I deleted when I pruned my roster in late summer, I would be at 1812 adjusted levels (90%).

    Around the middle of the year, I started looking at my roster and running the numbers of how many characters I’d have to level how high, and didn’t really want to do that much work. I also realized that I rather like to have my characters somewhat spread out across different level ranges, so that I can go play different content with them. I didn’t want to get all my characters bunched up into a relatively narrow high level range quite so quickly, I guess.

    It was still a good challenge to at least attempt and think about, though!

      I’m trying to have a toon for Alliance and Horde in each of the level brackets, so to speak, for folks who want to group up and what have you. I have a vast gap in Alliance at the moment…Horde too now that I think about it. It’s that 50-70 gap.

    I’m looking forward to hearing what about what you’ve come up with for the Transmog Contest, so fun to see what great outfits people come up with!

      It’s definitely going to be different from the last two. Gotta keep it fresh. 🙂

    More mogging! Horray! I can’t wait to see what you’re coming up with next.

    Oh more transmog stuff?? That will be fun 🙂 And what is a pet battle bank?

    • JD Kenada December 27, 2012 / 7:09 am

      Aye, I’m looking forward to this transmog contest. Simple, yet not. Heh.

      I’m going to make a post about the bank since you’re not the only person who asked.
