Elemental Invasion

Eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee! I love the elemental invasion! But then I loved the zombie invasion too. I know it interfered with auctions, the bank and so on but I didn’t care. I thought it was creative and different and it wasn’t going to go on forever. It seems that Blizzard has learned from the ah … um … input they got from those who didn’t care for the zombie invasion though. If you don’t want to be involved in the chaos of battle you can park your character in a capital city other than Stormwind, Orgrimmar, Ironforge or Thunderbluff and auction away.

Yesterday before logging in I did my usual check of Wow Insider to see if anything was up and yes, part 4 had begun. I ported straight to Stormwind on my druid and the battle was on. It was great, I don’t know how easy it will be when people get tired of doing it but hopefully the bosses will keep people defending the cities. I also heard complaints about the bosses dropping 251 loot, saying things like “I mean that stuff is only good if you have crap gear.” Well Sir, I am one of those people then with crap gear. I was happy to get Cloak of Mocking Winds not a big upgrade but I actually won a greed roll, I rolled 92, I’ve never rolled anything that high!

My only problem was my problem, not Blizzards. Okay we all know about standing in fire. I do know this. But on Prince Sarsarun I could not see the tornadoes. I don’t know if it was because of being behind him. Was he sneaking these things out under the back of his cloak? Was he hiding them? This was definitely a fight AND flight for me, I spent a lot of time airborne, if you look at the picture above you can kinda see me. This morning I watched some videos trying to actually see a tornado and I could. Ah well, my warlock can give it a try tonight, let’s see if she can avoid them standing all back and out of the way like she always does, pfft.
