Messed about a bit. Levelled a Death Knight. Paused from WoW again – Mists of Pandaria is just a very grindy experience. Finally restarted and levelled Kitira to 90.
This is my first real attempt at transmogrification. The pieces I need are hard to find – and it doesn’t help that I am (mostly) colorblind. So consider this a Work in Progress…
…I still think it’s an improvement over the standard look for the normal gear.
I probably wouldn’t make an individual post about it, but this is kind of, sort of, special to me. Today I killed Hemathion, the rare Dragon in Blade’s Edge mountain.
That’s not the special part. However, as you probably know, Blizzard has changed World of Warcraft achievements to be account-based rather than character based – a change I have waited for ever since achievements were introduced! As it turns out, I had already killed all the monsters needed for the “Bloody Rare” achievement – except Hemathion.
And so, after two days of checking at random intervals, Kitiralaysha now has an achievement worth of a hunter.
(I’ve probably killed most of the creatures with alts, but it still counts!)
Shortly after I returned to World of Warcraft, Pact of Wolves organized a raid on all Horde cities. Unfortunately it did not occur to me that I could record the fights, until only Silvermoon was left.
Silvermoon was by far the most boring of the four raids – but I decided to upload the video anyway, mostly just a s a “souvenir” if you will.
Thanks to Dymfna for organizing such a successful Raid on the Horde bastards!
It’s been ten months – but I am back.
After my transfer to the Horde side, I raided a bit – but we were never successful. The raid group I joined fell apart because certain people just wouldn’t put any effort into it. They signed up for farm runs with easy loot, but we couldn’t get full Ragnaros groups after a few evenings. Too bad, some nice people there.
After that, I went on to Star Wars: The Old Republic, and even though “It’s got Lightsabers!” – as Sheldon would say – the game just didn’t captivate me enough to stick around. I stopped playing in February and unsubscribed soon after.
Besides Mass Effect 3 (big disappointment) and Minecraft (addiction!) I did not play much at all in the meantime. A month or so ago, Blizzard stopped charging for the guild chat functionality of the iPhone armory application. I decided to say “Hi” to my old guild mates, and, well. They bugged me until I signed back in.
And so here I am again. Kitira is back on Earthen Ring and a Night Elf again, as is proper. I guess you just never really quit World of Warcraft once the gaming addiction has got you…
Spent a bit of time today to catch up on old content. I managed to max out my Cenarion Expedition reputation; this gave me the title “Guardian of Cenarius” and allowed me to purchased the War Hippogryph. I did want both for Kitiralaysha.
After that, I did the four Auchenai instances solo. Again, this was not a challenge at all, except as a test of enduring boredom, but I got the achievements and can now move on on my slow quest to some actual solo challenges.
- Auchenai Crypts HC
- Mana-Tombs HC
- Sethek Halls HC
- Shadow Labyrinth HC
Next up is the Netherstorm stuff…
Nowadays, I mostly travel with Shelly, my turtle, or Silky, my spider, because they are both able to pin a foe down while I pepper it from afar with piercing arrows. While Kitira was still a Night Elf, she mostly used a Frost Saber these days, because of the combination of Frost Saber mount, Frost Saber pet, and Frost Saber companion pet.
Still, there is only one true companion for Kitiralaysha. A pet she befriended way back when she was level<20: The Ghost Cat.
The best thing is, I figured out all by myself that one could tame these cats. I won’t claim that I am the first – that would be absurdly unlikely – but I was definitely among the very early ones.
The cat did, by the way, survive its transfer to the Horde side:
Another dragon subjugated, as a result of beating the Ulduar hard modes. Brann Bronzebeard sent me this beautiful drake:
