The Week of Going Wrongly

Posted in General WoW with tags , , , on January 18, 2011 by tomeoftheancient

I was flipping channels the other night and stopped briefly at NCIS LA cause I saw Linda Hunt who I like on it which made me remember the first time I saw her in The Year of Living Dangerously and spent the whole movie trying to figure out whether she was male or female. I didn’t post last week because all I had to say was either whining or moaning about something and I was going to spare you that but hey, why not, so you’ve been warned. I’m going to whine and moan about my week of wow going wrongly.

Okay I’m going to start off small, the cooking dailies, that freaking cooking daily, and you KNOW which one I mean, that stupid, stupid confectioner’s sugar. And I don’t know for the life of me why I can’t remember that some NPCs sell this which would alleviate some of the agony if I’d just remember. Who on earth thought that having sugar spawn in only four locations would be a good idea. Every time I find a location without someone already camping it I seem to draw mean-spirited people that want to get into a clicking contest. As soon as the server’s are back up I’m going to go buy all the sugar I can find, the next time Orphans Like Cookies Too! comes up I’m not going to be unprepared again.

Now this one is more serious, way back before Cataclysm launched I read about Vial of the Sands and was so excited. Now as you see if you read Wowhead’s listing it clearly states that the recipe drops from Canopic Jars which means you’d need to have Archaeology maxed. In fairness to me maybe this info has only been up since launch because I sure didn’t know it. I hurriedly got my alchemist up to 525 and then um, where’s the recipe? That’s when I discovered she’d have to max Archaeology. This wouldn’t be so bad except I already maxed it on my druid and really didn’t want to do it again. Oh well, here we go again and I also found out that when it comes to Archaeology your mileage may indeed vary, that druid was really lucky, yes, she really loves Archaeology, psst,  I wonder how much she’d like it if she had gone to 205 without a single rare so far, nothing, nada, zip.

Anything else go wrong, yes, my poor goblin finally stopped riding around with her homies and got to Orgrimmar spoke to that utter jerk, Garrosh Hellscream and is now living in a tenement, she’s not feeling any Horde love at all.

I guess sometimes virtual life mirrors real life in that sometimes you just hit a spell of things going wrongly, sheesh.

Oh, oh, I almost forgot. I’m beginning to think it’s impossible to complete The Crucible of Carnage in a pug but that’s a post for another day.

What’s up with Crusader Silverdawn

Crusader Silverdawn

I’m on good terms with most of the NPCs in game, even the ones you have to beat down to get information out of, we’re cool. I just have a problem with Crusader Silverdawn. What’s up with this guy, I mean calm the frick down man. Death to all who oppose us? Isn’t that a little harsh. I mean what if they are just philosophically opposed.

I always feel that I’m a disappointment to him. I think he might be pissed off because I never accept The Fate of the Fallen and I have only ever killed one Kraken. I just take the easy free gold quest from him, flying along in comfort throwing spears from a dizzying height with no danger involved.

But I’m not sure I’m the only one he makes uncomfortable, look at High Crusader Adelard he’s like totally ignoring Silverdawn it’s almost like he’s embarrassed. Adelard seems to be stable laid-back guy maybe he’s tired of standing next to all that fervor.

The only other thing that might be going on here is that I’m the one who’s getting weird. I have been doing these dailies for a long time. I would stop but I feel I have to do the least annoying ones for the money. Absolutely no jousting though. I didn’t mind the jousting it was just that I spent most of the time trying to keep the little buggers I was jousting in the ring. I don’t know how many times I would almost have them and then they’d run out of the ring and disappear.

Sorry, I digress. It could just be me, I seem to remember getting a little hinky around the  Shattered Sun there towards the end but really watch out for Silverdawn, just saying.
