Who are you … (Cymre Watch Out Ugly Face Incoming)

Posted in General WoW with tags , , on February 28, 2013 by tomeoftheancient

greenfaceWho who who who. I woke up in a Stormwind doorway … sigh. I’m in a mood, not a HUGE mood. You can always tell by the amount of effort I put into my ugly face and today … yeah, phoning it in.

But really doesn’t it seem wrong that while “playing” a “game” I FREQUENTLY worry about the future of the human race and I don’t like the odds.

Okay, that was my wordless rant. I’m done. To those that deserve it consider this a BIG FU from me to you.

Do You Know the Fight?

warmakerThis picture has nothing to do with anything, Sasche just felt sorry for Kar Warmaker because apparently he’s old news and nobody wants to fight him. She told him that apparently the word is out that he cheats with that Cracking Blow ability. If he’d stop it maybe he’d have some company.

changefWhat she really came here to say is Blizzard WTF! How dare you! What kind of crack is that? What the hell are you trying to say? Okay, you disguised my hair a little but why are you thinking that ANYONE would want to change from a beautiful Forsaken to a Blood Elf. I resent the implication that I’m less than attractive. Really, how could you.

I thought I should post today although I don’t have any of my usual helpful information to give you … HAHAHA! Yes, that Sasche said that, she’s quite the jokey Undead.

The REASON I thought I should post was because it might be my last chance to say: Hi, you guys! I’m hoping I don’t get booted off WordPress. A while back I was contacted by someone from the New York Film Academy. Apparently they have a game design program and wanted to do a guest post.

I know I would be interested in hearing what’s involved in becoming a game designer so I said sure. Hopefully since I’m getting nothing in return this isn’t in conflict with the whole WordPress no advertising thingy. I’m looking forward to reading it.

Lastly I had to add to my FAQ page. I get this a lot. I need to clarify. I get variations of, “You all know the fight.” Do you know the fight?” “Everyone knows this one.” NO I DON’T EFFING DO! I do not know one single fight! Over the years while you all are spending your time watching videos and studying strategies I have been sunning myself on the beaches of Tanaris and Thousand Needles.

What? Yes, I’m very lazy but everyone enjoys the game differently and if I think it’s fun to go back and pound on unsuspecting bosses with a bear 20 levels higher than them so that mechanics never have the time to become an issue then that’s what I’ll do. 20 levels though it would probably be my Cat pounding on them. Whatever. Cat is in a one person guild and has refused to pug since BC. Trust me, she doesn’t know the fight.

So in the interest of full disclosure. No. I DO NOT KNOW THE FIGHT! That is not why I play. I play to kick goats off of cliffs but if you still want me to come YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED!

JD and Laid Back Raids knows this and yet they still let me come … I know! How crazy is that!

Finally! My WoW Life Complete!

flyingtableDid I obtain an unattainable weapon? Reach a lofty iLevel? Big Love Rocket drop? Reach It’s Over Nine Thousand! yet? HAHAHA! Oh hell no, but I now have a Flippable Table! I worked long and hard currying favor, exchanging Mushan Ribs, doing dailies and now IT’S FINALLY MINE!!

Aki’s stupid Dragon dodged THREE attacks while beating the crap out of my pet?


Courageous Yon dares to give me another ball of lint as a reward. SLAM that table into his little cave!

It really works for everything. Love Rocket didn’t drop? FLYING TABLE OF RAGE! Someone got to the rare you’d been camping right before you! Beware! FLYING TABLE OF FURY!

So satisfying. Really.

What? Yes, it’s Tuesday and not just a maintenance day a REALLY LONG maintenance day. So I felt like talking although I have nothing to say. I do have a doctor’s visit lined up for the later half of the maintenance so I’m sitting here trying to be all zen and calm thinking about how satisfying it is to flip my table.

Every time I go to the doctor’s and they take my blood pressure lately they say it’s too high. I have TOLD THEM it’s HIGH because I’m at the doctor’s office for heaven’s sake. It seems only doctors don’t get this. She says that’s not true. Harumph. You are too scary, I’m going someplace where they might find out I only have six weeks to live and TELL me and on top of that they make me wait in a waiting room for OVER an hour with country music blaring the whole time. WHAT ISN’T STRESSFUL THERE!

And just for those country music enthusiasts, I like OLD country music but what they were playing was pop to me, I guess expecting heavy metal or something at the doctor’s is out. So yeah, I really don’t think I have high blood pressure. I just think the whole experience is too stressful. It was high at the dentist when they were about to extract FOUR TEETH! Well, duh.

Sorry, got off topic there. What else? Let me see. Got this search term, lazy tome. HOW DARE YOU! I am not. It just looks that way. It’s the danger of playing with a loner. As a loner when infrequently in a group, I don’t expect to be healed … ever. I’m not used to it. Unless I do something extremely stupid which is always possible, I will take care of myself.

The other day in a scenario I felt bad. This works both ways. I’m not paying ANY attention to what you’re doing, I’m not looking at chat. I’m just dpsing that bad boy down and trying not to step in anything. I happened to look at chat after it was over and saw, “ON ME!” “TWO ON ME!” from the healer. Wow, sorry. My bad. Didn’t occur to me to look out for them because I’m always alone. So it’s not laziness it’s lonerness and makes me very dangerous to hang around. Because you’re thinking I’m paying attention to you and I’m not. So see, not lazy tome, loner tome.

Oh well. Bout time to head to the doctor’s. I just wish I could flip my table a few times before I go. I think it would help with the blood pressure, instead I’ll just have to take earplugs and hope the absence of country music works.

Cat Does Pandarian Shake

Posted in General WoW with tags , , , on February 16, 2013 by tomeoftheancient

Yeah, I know I overindulge her. But really, what she SAID was she wanted to show off her Vile Fumigator’s Mask. Okay, that’s cool. I didn’t know she was going to cause a scene in the Seat of Knowledge and upset poor Lorewalker Cho!

Really Cat it’s been done to death, even Grannies did it.

What are the Tillers REALLY Growing and When Worlds Collide

Posted in General WoW with tags , , , on February 15, 2013 by tomeoftheancient

tillersgrowIn this shot it looks like he might be mid-jump but he floated like that all the way down the hill. You have to wonder just what kind of crops those guys are growing. Jade Squash, Striped Melon and maybe some Happy Time Weed. Well, whatever … I’m not ratting them out. I like these guys, it’s probably something medicinal.


Yeah … there he was this morning, I wanted to cry. People have said they never see him. I see him A LOT. I’ve concluded we keep the same awkward hours. 6:30am server and my time. He’s an early riser too. Sasche was first to see him but chat didn’t look promising. Horde side said it was too late to get a group together. Logged into Cat to check and an Alliance group was trying to form.

I think they had three people so far. I had fifteen minutes; my non-gaming husband is off until next Tuesday. Today is the day scheduled for car maintenance. I’m to take him to the repair shop to drop off his truck in 15 minutes … would a yell downstairs of:

“I will just be another half … or maybe whole hour while I wait for a Galleon group to form dearest,” work?

I think not. I think it might generate ire. Sigh … these mixed marriages can be difficult sometimes. He would never understand the importance of a Galleon group over a timely radiator flush.

In a RIDICULOUS show of optimism I logged in 3 hours later to see if he was still there … yeah … how stupid is that. Don’t you hate it when real non-game and real game-game worlds collide. But there it is, what are you going to do. Til we met again Galleon. Love you, man.

Since I’m here I gotta say, this is the ultimate slap in a pet battler’s face.

slapYou stand there through three dodged spells … you’re down to your last courageous pet. Your team prevails! Your last pet wins with 6 health left! Yay! What a win!  Yes … WHAT … you’re giving me a damn worn out useless stuffed toy? I just won an epic battle and that’s what I get? You’re killing me here.

battlesupAnd while on the subject of pet battles I’ve noticed Cat has developed some … I don’t know … pet battle superstitions I guess. She HAS to battle from the left. To not do so would mean certain defeat. I’ll have to check her socks. Could be she even wears lucky battle pet ones, who knows.

Anyway, I’d better go. I hear footsteps. Might mean I have to do more rl stuff. Go out for breakfast or something. These non-gamers, there are perfectly good Taverns in Azeroth if ONLY he would try it.

Posted in Matty's Movie Mog Contest with tags , , , on February 12, 2013 by tomeoftheancient

Procrastination! It’s my best thing! I wanted to do Matty’s Movie Mog Contest and I picked the classic, Blade Runner because I wanted to do Pris up there. I really didn’t think this through though. First, Sasche insisted she wanted to be the model … um … that’s not really what I had in mind but to keep the peace I relented. sasche_prisThere’s Sasche as Pris, the “basic pleasure model” replicant. Yeah Sasche, I’m just not feeling it. Oh well, as long as you’re happy. Someone would have had to have been on one LONGASS space trip or something to consider Sasche “basic pleasure model” material. WHAT? I’m sorry, I’m sure you were quite the beauty before the whole undead thing happened. Really.

So my problem is I just can’t get a handle on how to dress any of the other characters. I guess I could kinda cheat and do Roy from a scene where he’s only wearing pants. And I wanted to do Deckard but I can’t seem to come up with anything.

So I decided to show Matty that I AM trying and post what I have so far. I know it’s not much but hopefully if I procrastinate a little longer I just might be inspired. Or not. Who can say.

So that’s where I stand, how are you doing?

EDIT: Yay! I’m done! And under the deadline! Okay, here goes.

realroyHere is Roy delivering his famous monologue.


Okay, this is what had been stumping me. Deckard HAS to wear a duster. HAS TO, and it was really hard finding one. FINALLY I found the Duster of Replication. WHAT? It is too real; you just have to look really hard to find it.





the action or process of reproducing or duplicating

I’m sure Matty will allow it … maybe?

The WoW Bird of Happiness

Posted in General WoW with tags , , , , on February 9, 2013 by tomeoftheancient

navibirdThis morning I’m doing the Tiller dailies and wondering why it’s taking Cat about five minutes to down a single Hozen … oh … Safari Hat again. Navi whispers that she just got a Flawless Battle-stone! Yay! I said it had been quite a while since I’d seen one, need one to drop for my Minfernal. Navi said come to Dath’Remar! Right now!

I had a character there, so logged in. Navi gave her the Battle-stone for her common Minfernal! How wonderful is that! She’s like one beautiful bird of WoW happiness! Sorry he singed your feathers! Thank you so much Navi!

I hurried to tell Cat as she’s the pet enthusiast, that Warlock only wanted to turn him into one of her minions.

minandcatAs expected Cat was thrilled and so grateful. She showed him off to all her friends at Halfhill. Best not to mention her clothes, she’s kind of touchy about that. She’s not in a good look place right now.

micookYeah … I’m not sure. She’s showing him the kitchen? Do Minfernals cook? Maybe she’s just showing him around the cottage to make him feel at home.

So how do I repay Navi? I think she’d want me to try to make someone else happy. Wait a minute. There’s going to be a server reset? Where’s Matty, let’s try one more time to go to the magical land of Drak’Tharon. Last time we tried we got booted to Pve, lets give it a try!

mattyYAY! YAY! It worked this time, we stayed on Drak’Tharon the magical battle pet server! Matty’s finally captured her Scourged Whelpling! The WoW bird of happiness passed it on! YAY! You’ve been scourged!
