Never Mind …

cimseggI had all these screen shots of yesterday. But … yeah … never mind. I think we all know what yesterday looked like but I’m saving the one showing a queue on Fenris because it’s so rare it might become a collector’s item.

So, here I am with all this time on my hands and I suck at Hearthstone so yeah, a post. Cat and Cim were tag-team leveling yesterday. Cim went first and decided to save her primal egg with her new colorful mount until she established her Garrison. You know, as kind of a celebration.

Didn’t work out that well for her, Black Primal Raptor number three!

There were no problems at all on Fenris for me until around 3:00pm eastern when things started getting wonky. Both Cat and Cim managed to get their Town Halls to level 2 before the great Attack of the Asshats.

It’s now become clear that maybe I should have been paying more attention and not squeezing my eyes shut saying, I don’t want to know! I don’t want to know, I want it to be a surprise!

Cim managed to put up the wrong buildings and by the time she realized it she was out of garrison supplies or whatever the stuff is you need to buy buildings. She’d squandered it all and was down to 10 of the whatsits.

How you liking the big surprise now Cim? Ow! I was just kidding, jeez Cim.

Oddly Cat’s further along than Cim. I know! Cat piddles along stopping to tame new pets and killing everything to skin. Just kind of wandering around. Cim’s the one racing through quests trying to get high enough level to turn in some enchanting thingy over where the bird people reside.

I really enjoyed it. At six in the morning the hardcore had left the area and the competition for quests wasn’t that bad yet for things that recommended three people there were enough around.

They both visited Ashran and set their hearthstones to Stormshield and took a look around. It was a pretty good day it just ended too soon.

I only see two negatives. I’m not going to like running some 10 or however many alts it turns into through the starting zone. I had wanted to get my herb/alchem in there but just couldn’t face it again yet.

The other negative is tomorrow is the day of celebration for my birthday. Not the actual day, just the celebrating day. You can’t tell non-gamers that a celebratory day would be to play WoD … not and live.
