excusemeExcuse me? Um … I can see you’re busy but … oh maybe he’ll know. Pardon me, could you give me directions … I see, sorry to bother you.

After reading that Patch 6.2 was nearly upon us I decided it was time to finish up some things, namely Field Photographer. I had everything done except for The Frozen Throne.

I’m pretty much the same in Azeroth as IRL. If you drive me someplace, even repeatedly, I have no idea how to get there on my own. I wasn’t paying any attention, I was gawking out the window or contemplating my navel, who knows.

Same in Azeroth. Both Cat and Cim have been in ICC with people. I have NO IDEA where everything is or how to get there. I just blindly followed behind people who did know. And yeah … probably a few times I’d had a glass of wine by that point so it’s even harder in Azeroth.

It took me hours, yes hours. Go ahead and laugh … hours. And it was daytime so I didn’t even have the excuse of wine. Everything was peachy until Gunship.

A tip, if you’re level 100 and have at least mediocre gear DON’T JUMP TO THE SHIP. I did because I wanted to use my jetpack thingy. As I was jumping over I noticed that the fight was already over so then I was stuck circling Icecrown Citadel on the wrong ship. I had to jump to my death.

That’s right, on 10-man nobody can actually kill you but yourself, which of course I did.

Next problem was I couldn’t find Sindragosa. That took about an hour of aimlessly wandering around.

Done! Let’s go see Arthas!

Nope, I’d missed someone.

Googled “missed a boss in ICC can’t get to Arthas.”

It worked! The suggestion I found was the Blood Queen and they were right. The whole Arthas thing was kinda anticlimactic after all that.

My kingdom for a GPS addon.

natThe last thing on my list of “before 6.2” is finally buckling down on fishing up enough lunkers to buy the Crimson Water Strider. We’ll see how that goes.

For Elune’s sake stop with all the dramatics! I don’t know how many times I’ve told you I DON’T carry around a cooler of beer, grow up Nat!

Sigh …
