A Pictorial Review of a Week in Draenor

nbcI took all these screen shots but now I feel really lazy. I’m sure at the time I had a lot to say about them but … yeah … I forgot. This one I think I remember. It is frightening how long it took me to get this. Obviously the name means something … hmmm. It’s a peacock stupid! Enbi’see! NBC! Get it? Sigh …

laborissueI’m experiencing labor issues at my Garrison. A long, long time after an invasion is over these chickens are still hiding out in the mine. Now as far as I’m concerned that bitch Rachelle Black can stay down there forever but I really needed Ashley Zerep the primal trader one day and could not find her anywhere. So …

gronsunYes! Finally! I really love custom groups! I had about given up on ever seeing Poundfist and getting that Sunhide Gronnling but I finally did. He’s really too big for riding around, he doesn’t fit in doorways. I keep getting stuck, but as intimidation?

Yes! Next time I find loitering employees in the mine I’ll jump on that sucker and have a few words with them while he pounds his chest. That ought to fix my labor problems.

blookgoneCat finally snapped. She was so tired of Blook getting in the way. HEY! HEY! I’m talking to you! Don’t pretend you don’t hear me Blook! You’re obstructing my pet battles! Move it! She finally bought a follower she didn’t want or need to be able to deactivate him. She’s much happier so I guess it was worth it.

mageminingOh … this one’s sad. I can’t believe that the Archmage Vargoth I first met in Netherstorm has come to this. Cat, really? I know he has mining but come on, it’s Archmage Vargoth for heavens sake. No perk is worth this. Can’t you put Blook down here or something? Man, that’s really harsh. That’s not like you, did he say something?

I don’t know what’s going on there. And speaking of guilt trips.

phantaEvery time I login to Dragonblight to play the new Alliance Rogue box opener this screen appears. Phanta is not the last one I played, she isn’t at the top of the character list. EVERY time she’s standing there looking pathetic as if to say, I’m here! Pick me! Pick me!

It’s really bad when your characters try to manipulate you. Nice try Phanta! It’s not going to work! No way!

Yeah … it’s kinda working. That’s even weirder.

Mistakes, Mothra, Asshatometers and Stuff

primaltraderYeah, I’m not sure recruiting this Blook guy was such a good idea. Cim was trying to find her Alliance Primal Trader, Ashley Zerep as soon as she got her garrison to level 3. Couldn’t find her anywhere. It turns out that because Blook is a stalker he’d been obscuring her. He follows her everywhere, it’s kind of creepy. Need to find him something to do, he’s got too much time on his hands.

And I’m thankful JD was online to save me from myself. I had bought the plans to upgrade my stable to level 2 and it wasn’t working, dammit, what’s going on, always with the problems. It’s in my bag … what? Ooooohhhhh … no, I didn’t learn it. Thank you JD.

And then making the mistakes that I learned NOT to make ages ago. I know not to make them.  I know, KNOW not to buy stuff while leveling but Cim was getting tired of waiting for a weapon upgrade so she bought an expensive staff which was replaced within the hour by a green quest reward, sigh.

Learn from her mistakes the rest of you! Do not bring down the Wrath of the Commander! Commander being me just so we’re clear. Yeah, all that kowtowing in the garrison may have gone to my head, just a little.

moth_3Cim’s been having a fine time with her Stables, well up until now anyway. It’s really embarrassing her but she’s stuck on the stupid giant moth, The Moth of Wrath. She’s got a logjam of mounts lined up trying to bring that GIANT, EVIL, DANGEROUS … moth to it’s knees.

Considering she’s a Warlock with demon handling capabilities saying she’s embarrassed she can’t take down a moth is an understatement.

Now I have no reason to do Proving Grounds as I don’t even do regular dungeons because of my stranger danger fears. People I know are generally out making a living the time of day I’m playing so no dungeons. I don’t need a silver to get into heroics.

bitemeBut of all the things I bitch and moan about this is the only thing Blizzard has done that REALLY pisses me off. BITE ME LIEUTENANT THORN. For example I have read comments about what’s happening in Molten Core groups.

I read about people telling the group to single target those Core Hound packs in the first cave. Basically so they can laugh their ass off when it all goes horribly wrong. They may be fine players, they may have aced gold proving grounds but they’re asshats. I can’t help but think you’ll find these same players in heroics.

I don’t like that Blizzard keeps content we’re all paying the same amount for from potentially nice players but yeah, asshats! Come on in! I don’t think they need a skill check, they need an asshatometer. I wish I had an idea, but like Blizzard, I’m stumped. I don’t know, some kind of gaming Myers-Briggs personality test?

breachYep, once more unto the breach. Cim’s at 100. Cat’s enjoying taking her time this expansion. She usually goes first in the mad pack where you can’t really enjoy anything, you’re just competing for quest mobs. She’s much happier taking her time. The ONLY thing she’s miffed about is Cim having a Menagerie first and doing all the pet battles, that might make her hurry just a little bit.

Right now all the pet battling Cat’s doing is using poor little Ashlei to level any level one pets she has. Instant level ten or eleven!

So number three. Not who I’d planned. I wanted a Horde character next but instead it’s a profession character. Lokkan the once Enhancement now Elemental Shaman for Inscription/Jewelcrafting.

To say I don’t know how to play her is an understatement but nevertheless she seems to get by. I thought going through the jungle again would be a pita but it wasn’t which is good news since there are many waiting in the wings.

That’s been my week. I’m enjoying WoD a great deal, more than I thought I would. I would like to fly but I see why we can’t. I guess if I need a hit of flight I’ll go back to the old country.

Hopefully I’ll come up for air before next maintenance day but Draenor calls to me …
