This Is How I Roll

Barla battling bosses while bubbled and blowing bubbles. That is how it is done, folks.

So the toy box will be here tomorrow - I can't wait!! One of my favorite toys, the Ogre Pinata, has a place in the box so all of my girls can use it.

Bubblegum for EVERYONE!

Oh, yeah, and the WoD pre-patch launch event starts, too. I'm excited about it, really I am. It's just.. TOYS.


Tuesday night I am logging into the game after work JUST TO SEE BAG SPACE. I'm not playing. I won't join in on the fun of running the new Blackrock or questing in that one place with the portal that I can't think the name of right now (it'll come to me later over dinner when I blurt it out to The Husband and he wonders what sort of demon has taken me over now - I swear that whenever I talk to him about WoW he gets this look on his face like I'm speaking in tongues).

First Zandalari Warbringer Solo

So Barlafumble has been working on her August Celestial rep - she has been holding onto the Reins of the Thundering Ruby Cloud Serpent. It's a beautiful mount, but it's starting to stink up her backpack a lil' bit.

When the dailies were done and while waiting for Starre (slowpoke!!), I spotted one of the warbringers. Boredom kinda gets me into trouble.. and apparently I haven't had enough repair bills lately.. so I think "hey! lets kill it!".

I died twice. I didn't have a tank pet!! Flash is hanging out in the stables because I changed the ones I keep on hand for raiding.

So yeah, twice. Then it hits me.. THERE ARE TURTLES RIGHT HERE WHERE I'M DYING.

I never said I was smart..

Tamed a turtle and TA DA!!

Only took that one time with Turtle. He looks pretty smug with himself for having carried me through the fight.

And.. yes.. as I write this I realize that I could have changed Hamilton's spec from Ferocity to Tenacity in the very beginning.

I never said I was smart....

Slacker Update

Yep, I am such a slacker. I've been playing, and I still transmog (even more than once a day!), I just haven't been posting.

I could say that I've been busy trying to get things done before the patch hits, but I'd be lying :P I am too easily distracted.

Starre has opened up Equinox to more people and that's turning out really well. I enjoy meeting new folks and I'm really hoping we end up creating teams for raiding, etc.

I sat down today and made a to-do list and it turned out pretty long. I stared at it, edited it a little, added more things, took other things off.

You know, I don't really need a list. There are TWO things I ABSOLUTELY NEED to do before the expansion.

  1. Finish the green fire quest on my warlock. I'm at the last boss and am having issues - I'm too slow/clumsy/uncoordinated/impatient and I die quickly. I've had him down to 74%...
  2. Obtain the Thundering Serpent Hatchling. This should be fun. This will require me joining a guild who has it unlocked, leveling a new toon and reaching Revered with them. There's a list over on of guilds who will let people in just for the purpose of getting the pet. I think this is really great of the guilds who do that!!
I would like to get the legendary cloaks for at least the warlock and priest (I only have one and it's on Barlafumble), but .. meh... they'll end up getting replaced in the next expansion anyway, right? (please say yes)

Anyway.. here's what I've been up to:

Nequissime has been working on her Insane title. She went Disc and.. omg.. I've been queuing as HEALS. And I haven't even been yelled at yet.

Barlafumble turned Blood Elf, got the Pureblood Fire Hawk mount, turned Draenei.

Elsebeth has been working on the green fire quest. She used to love the Black Temple. Now all she wants is to get the green fire and use it to tear the damn place down stone by stone.

Overlord's Plate

The final WoD account upgrade and my 3rd insta-90.

I'm torn on instant 90's, but since I had to upgrade three accounts, I wasn't about to let the upgrades go to waste.

Good: another Tiller farm means that I never have to farm for materials. YAY!

Bad: don't know how to play the toons. Honestly, this isn't so bad. They'll be living at Halfhill and I have two "mains" which is really all I have time for.


Meet Nicia, my new warrior. The swords are a Gnome-only Warrior quest reward.

Head: Overlord's Crown
Shoulders: Overlord's Spaulders
Chest: Overlord's Chestplate
Waist: Overlord's Girdle
Legs: Overlord's Legplates
Feet: Overlord's Greaves
Gloves: Overlord's Gauntlets
Tabard: Renowned Guild Tabard
Main Hand: Very Light Sabre
Off Hand: Very Light Sabre

On a roll..

Valastra is my "free" level 90 Rogue, and one I'm adding into my weekly rotation of solo mount farming. Monday was her first time in Karazhan. And look what she found!!

*scratches Karazhan off the list*

I'm not really that great with my solo mount farming (I'm easily distracted). Here's my current list of what I should be trying for:
  1. Weekly Runs
  2. Daily Runs (who am I kidding, I don't do these daily, but I REALLY MEAN TO)
Valastra doesn't really have anything for transmog and that "outfit" that Blizzard gave her for her instant 90 gear is HORRID. I just put this together really quick from the AH while I'm farming some tier sets.

Shoulders: Rugged Spaulders
Chest: Nocturnal Tunic
Main Hand: Butcher's Cleaver
Off Hand: Blade of Cunning

A bunch of stuff.

Two thousand, one hundred and forty-eight.

So far, I have collected 2148 pieces of BoE armor and weapons in my quest to be ready when we are finally able to "learn" an items' appearance instead of having to carry/keep items for transmog.

Am I crazy? well, duh..

Even tho this is just wishful thinking. Even tho Blizzard hasn't said they were going to do it.

Blizzard, are you out there? You love me don't you? Or at least my $45/mo payments? And the $$ from the race changes every few months?

If you care.. if you TRULY CARE.. you'll give me this "closet". Not void storage. Not just more bag space. I NEED A FREAKING CLOSET!

A walk-in one.. the size of a room.. or even a small garrison.

Oh, and if you could please throw in an achieve. Maybe something like "Barlafumble, the Essential Outfitter."

Dude, Where's My Mount?

It's right here.. and here... and here... I can haz ALL THE MOUNTS.

Okay, not all, but I did add three more to my collection this last week because SOMEONE got herself the Reins of the Onyxian Drake and instigated further mount runs.

(okay, I cheated and bought the WOD expansion, so technically not a drop)

There are some mount runs that are just so easy and I'm still too much of a slacker to try for them. I'll work on that.. soon.. maybe I'll start this week.. probably.. we'll see.

And I'm still jealous of Starre's Onyxian Drake.

Don't be mad...

After Dragon Soul tonight, I hopped over to Terokkar to see if I could do a quest for a cute cloth top transmog reward (I couldn't...*sigh*). So I poked my head into Heroic Sethekk Halls.. and look what I found!

Around (Everyone's) Azeroth

Oops! I did it again..

Okay, so it wasn't me this time, it was Nounours. Also, I apologize for using a Brittney Spears lyric... I don't know what came over me! It won't happen again, I promise.

We've been on a crusade to cause as much trouble as possible. It's been SO MUCH FUN, and I find myself looking forward to my Friday nights online.

Last Friday, we went into Firelands and Nou submitted a pic to Around Azeroth that Starre took . So, Yay! Second week we're on Around (Everyone's) Azeroth!!

Different pic, one I took:

Don't worry, I won't start charging for autographs (yet). Tho I can't promise that the fame won't go to my head...

Wee Beasties

I like to take pictures of my antics, but I normally don't submit them to WoW Insider/Around Azeroth. Starre and I were in Karazhan recently, and since I don't need a pet there, Sasha had a day off. I had fun with my Panflute of Pandaria :)

I've read that I could have something like 30 critters following me around - CHALLENGE ACCEPTED!

Shoulders: Stalker's Chain Spaulders
Chest: Stalker's Chain Armor
Waist: Girdle of Ferocity
Legs: Stalker's Chain Leggings
Feet: Tsunami Boots
Gloves: Stalker's Chain Gauntlets
Ranged: Consortium Blaster

In Preparation for Unlocking Item Appearances a.k.a. Wishful Thinking a.k.a. More Excuses to Hoard

Starre and I were talking a while ago about how Diablo Reaper of Souls will have this great transmog set-up: you find an item, you "learn" it, and every toon on that account will be able to use that appearance for transmog.

No carrying anything around in your bags, no taking up bank space or void storage.


Why is this not in WoW? Will it be someday?


And that is what I have been up to. 

I have my trusty (not so very) little spreadsheet, Undermine Journal open on one tab, Wowhead on another and the AH up on the cell phone. All. Day. Long. (Don't tell my employer. Or my husband.)

When that feature becomes available in WoW, I'll be ready. yes, I said "when"

Oh yes, I will be ready.

Barlafumble, Conqueror of Orgrimmar

Look at what I have!

Barla took a short vacation to Greymane and tagged along with Balkoth and others from Despotism. I am happy to say that I held on for most of the fight and only had to tank the floor at the very end.

I won't kid myself (or you) - they carried me. But LOOK AT WHAT I HAVE!

This was only my second time seeing this fight - my first time in Normal (previous time was LFR). I'm kind of chicken when it comes to this sort of thing. Barla is by far the one I am most comfortable with, but still, when I don't know a fight well, I fret. So I don't go. So then I don't learn the fight.

It's a vicious circle. I will do better.

So. Spiffy new title. Fluffy new mount. Really ugly tier helm.

Some changes..

Meet Braelei, my 82 Shaman. Doesn't she look angry? I think so, and I think it really represents how I'm feeling lately. I just want to go bash in some skulls.

Okay, yeah, I'm not fooling anyone - I've ALWAYS liked bashing in skulls, especially if I could skin them, too. But unlike that happy skinner Barlafumble, Braelei just leaves a trail of bodies behind her. AND SHE LOVES IT.

She and all of my other ladies have dropped the previous guild and are now in mostly alt guilds. Some remain unguilded (because I'm lazy) and Braelei is in Starre's guild because it's easier to stalk her from there. Barlafumble will be taking a vacation to Greymane this weekend for her Garrosh kill :) Yep, super excited about that one!! Yay title and mount!

Oh.. right.. Braelei.. This set is from questing in Mount Hyjal and is a recolor of the Earthen Mail set which I really like. I love love this shield - all broken & scuffed up from all the skull-bashing.

Shoulders: Scalded Rockscale Shoulderpads
Chest: Chestguard of Inscrutability
Waist: Coreforged Girdle
Legs: Rust-Scrivened Leggings
Feet: Impressive Greaves
Gloves: Gutrip Gauntlets
Main Hand: Golem-Shard Sticker
Off Hand: Speedbarge Bailer
