Call me Fishin' Fear...

So, I broke down and decided to give Hazmat a couple of jobs, other then killing Allies. What better job to have for a PvPin', Arena scootin, Raider, like myself? Alchemy! Along with Alch, I took up herbalism to defray the cost of those nasty little herbs.

Then something really bad happened. I maxxed my herbalism in 2 days and I am about 420 in Alch. I decided to take on another profession for grins...

Fishing for teh win! I am actually doing me some fishing dailies, and getting some crazy looking fish in the lakes of Northrend. I still find that profession to be completely mind numbing, but the rewards are getting better. It would be nice to see them to keep enhancing that profession to include pulling a monster on the better loot or something to keep things interesting. Believe me, I have beat the crap out of some people with my fishing pole equiped and that in itself is FUN! Although it takes a hell of a lot longer without the Titansteel Mace. My only major complaint about the rewards is that this fishing daily bimbo keeps giving me "water walking" potions. Just for the record guys, I am a Death Knight! The ability to walk on water is built in! Dynamic rewards for the win!

I have just been chilling out, taking my time and playing as casual as I can. I am still not finished with Argent Tournament and my PvP gear, but if they are just going to keep making me upgrade every season, I don't see the point in going all out.

That reminds me about gear. I think at some point we need to cap the gear off and then just offer different sets of I-level gear. I mean in Burning crusade there was a choice of a couple of different sets and that was nice. I would like to see more of that going forward. Maybe five of each set or something so we can look a little different. Hey! How about letting us gain a skill for tailoring, leatherworking, and blacksmithing that would allow us to pick colors within reason?

I know we did in UO, and I liked it!

Anyway, that's all I got, for now... For the glory of the Sendori!

My Raiding Career Is Over, For Now...

I quit my raiding guild yesterday. I decided that if I am gonna put Myd on hiatus, I may as well just jump out of the raiding guild. Then I decided I should just make my own. So, about 2000G later and a couple hours of begging people to sign my charter. Ebon Vortex was born. Yes, I was trying to do a DK/BV crossover thing. Don't know why, I just liked it. I got 4 tabs to stuff my own crap into which is awesome! I always wanted to have more bank space without buying bigger bags at 1000-2000 Gold a piece. I guess I could get my tailoring up more, but now I will have to wait and enjoy my guild by myself.

Argent Tournament is kinda leaving me with the "what's the point" feeling. The jousting was not like it should be and a little too easy to master. The only hard part is fighting the commanders on the gates. Those guys are almost impossible to solo. Sometimes people jump in and help bring them down which is nice. There is also this one where you have to fight a dragon and three crazy bombers. That one can not be done solo. The rewards and the rep grind is easier, but you are limited to only a few quests a day, so it is still a long grind. I got the Sword of the Sendori however, and the Hippograph mount is cool. If I can ever build up the 5000 gold to fly the damn thing, I will be happy.

Someone at Bliz likes fishing finally. Giving us the ability to fish anywhere and the chance for a rare mount has people stirring. I am almost tempted, although I am way too busy getting gear right now to worry about it.

Bliz did rolling restarts again all week long, so I don't know what the hell the problem is. I just hope one of these days we get some uninterrupted playing in.

That's it for now... Until next time....

Waiting For The Worms To Come...

A little accident happened on my older laptop a couple of weeks back. A friend of the GF decided to open an attachment from a friend which was actually a trojan virus. After several sessions of trying to kill this bug and get things working as designed again, I was left with the only choice of wiping and reinstalling everything.

So, I now have browser back and things are getting installed slowly but surely. I am currently waiting on WoW to install it's 6.5g WoTK which should include the original and Burning Crusade clients.

In game, still playing around with the Priest and the DK. I put the Warlock on extended holiday because the blue PvP gear has been upgraded to be better then my epic level 70 gear finally. So, I just have to figure out when I may want to spend the time to go and do those PvP sessions and replace all my gear again.

They also replaced Hateful Gladiator items with Deadly Gladiator items that will force me to upgrade some of my DK's gear as well... I have been doing better in both BG's and arenas lately on the DK. Season 6 started, and well, we didn't get off to a good start, but we are still better then we were in Season 5. I aquired enough arena points to get some blue gear, nothing too special, but it saved me hours of doing BG's.

I received the Lance A Lot achievement the other day for defeating one of every class in jousting. Those poor bastards just don't have a chance these days. I got the shield break and charge down to an art form.

Not much else to report. Lots of maint going on today. Hopefully I will get some playtime in before too long.
