Hey! Hey! Hey! Let Go of my Hair!

What is up with these Kyrian. Enough of the dragging me here and there by my hair. Bastion is incredibly beautiful but the Kyrian so far are not my favorite people. Pretty pompous actually. Cat was ready to turn feral on them a time or two.

Where was everybody? I expected lag and horrible competition for kills and nope. In fact I see very few people around. That was handled well except the phasing that was used seems to have made forming groups harder.

I enjoyed the Wrath event, I got addicted to hunting rares with Cat, my Hunter and Sasche and Cimmeria the Warlocks. Turns out it was a good thing as they upped their iLevel enough to survive the Maw. I loved a reason to hang around one of my favorite expacs.

So yeah, I’m girding my loins so to speak to return to Bastion and endure those sanctimonious Kyrian. I DO NOT see ANY of my guys wanting to join forces with them, we’ll see if that changes. I’m positive Cat is going to join up with the Night Fae Covenant not because of abilities but the nature thing is definitely Cat.

Cat’s first few days in Shadowlands has been great, except for the hair thing. She wants to work on skinning and leatherworking but the animals in Bastion are too cute. Honestly, not surprising for a Druid who stealths around because she doesn’t believe in needless killing. Between you and me she’s so funny sometimes. She was so happy to find a beautiful fishing spot so at least she could start on that.

Okay, I’m going to go see if I can figure out how much longer I have to hang around with these overbearing Kyrian ninnys, jeeezzz.

Is it just me?

Hi Hi Hi! I have to get away from the TV and Twitter for a bit today before I explode. Thought I’d see if anyone else does these things in WoW.

I tend to go to beautiful locations and, well, do nothing for long periods of time. Depending on the expac and location I might also get all sniffly and emotional if it’s Wrath or Pandaria.

Oh hi Farmer Fung, how are things? So good to see you again!

Kind of the same thing but I fly around looking for music I like and then stop and Cat just hangs around for five or ten minutes. You know, grooving. Hahahahahaha, you go girl.

I know that my latency lately has been driving some of this. It spiked the other day around 1400 ms. Not a lot you can do with that kind of latency.

I looked up finding what’s causing your latency and they gave a lot of reasons. Which one? I don’t know enough to figure it out. It started around when the pre-patch came out. Is my computer too old? If I turn off the computer and then reboot the router it will go down from 3 days to a few hours, don’t know what that means.

I even did a this thingy:

Tracing route to over a maximum of 30 hops

2 13 ms 12 ms 882 ms

Trace complete.

Aha! Just as I suspected, it’s Comcast’s fault! Figures. Yeah, I don’t know what any of that means.

I’ve been trying to complete Pandaria Raiding with Leases which works with lag but just takes a while. I got back to Boralus one day after doing Heart of Fear and sold all the stuff I’d acquired that wasn’t a pet. Logged out.

Next morning logged in and looked to see what I might be able to upgrade and found my iLevel had fallen 4 points. I had SOMEHOW equipped a pair of iLevel 40 gloves the day before and sold the good ones. Is it just me that’s this ditzy? No, don’t answer. I think I know.

That’s about it. Have to figure out something else now to keep me off Twitter. Wash the stinky dog? EAT? EAT SOMEMORE? Maybe some cookies?
