hot tip: wrathion questline

I finally got to 10/10 10/10 sigil jiggers today, and was able to move on to the next step in the legendary quest chain, which is killing the Sha in Terrace of the Endless Spring and looting a chimera thingo off him.

This bit is where the tip comes in...

This bit is where the tip comes in…

As I had already done Terrace LFR this week, I thought I would test if you could still loot the quest item if you were saved to the instance loot-wise.

The short answer is that it was a SUCCESS – you can INDEED do Terrace for a 2nd time in the same lockout and loot the Sha for the quest item. The ensuing questline is awesome, to say the least (spoiler alert!)…

Gimme some love - and a gem!

I now have my drool-worthy Sha-Touched gem – now all I need is the weapon I can socket it into!

I hope this tip helps!

Patch day, and I’m…

Waiting….

Yes, I’m still waiting, and waiting… I want my stag form! With a dose of a nasty virus currently doing the rounds, and straight off the back of a 14-hour sleep last night and into today, I’m quite behind the 8-ball with downloading updates.

In the meantime, I’m living vicariously through my twitter feed 😦

Oh flame kitteh, how I miss choo!

Look how HOT I am!!!!

Was going through some old screenshots the other day, and came across poser pics from when I finally got hold of Fandral’s Flamescythe, and it got me thinking about mog.

I really, really wish I could use Fandral’s AND the accompanying visual proc, but alas, Blizzard says no. I don’t quite understand how this can’t be done, especially as some of the visual procs that come from the likes of Warlock T6 are available to others. It took so long for it to drop that I can’t help but feel just a little ripped off, especially when I see warlock wings popping up all over the place.

I’ll keep Fandral’s in my bank for now, hoping and praying that one day I can become RAGEYFIREKITTEH again, but I’m not holding my breath.

Oh and on a side note, I kinda really miss this guy too. We’re coming up on the end of progression in Dragon Soul this week after rebuilding the raid team thanks to some  dummy spits/gquits earlier this year, and I just can’t bring myself to feel as excited as I did when we were working on Arthas – maybe it’s because the final boss of this expansion is only ‘parts’ of his body?

I salute you BITCH KING – at least you kept us distracted at the end of an expansion!

Ima get you outta there Arthas – just hang on a little longer – takes a while, even as FLAME KITTEH!!!

Single healing Ultraxion

One of our guildies, Raziel, went into LFR last night after raid, and I was on vent with him as he zoned in. He was quiet for a while, but then all of a sudden piped up with some rather colourful invective about the group he was in. A shaman healer from Frostmourne (our favourite server for the proving of GIFT – aka Greater Internet Fuckwad Theory) had actually PAID the other four healers not to heal (who were also Frostmourne players), so he could solo heal it in order to get a top WOL ranking.

W.T.F.

While his HPS were impressive at apparently between 73k – 98k, he still wiped the raid – TWICE.

Now don’t get me wrong – I’m all for people pushing their limits, but for the LOVE OF PETE, you do that in your own guild’s runs, not in a situation where you have 20 other strangers who just want to get their free valor points for the week, am I right? I mean, Raziel and myself decided to test our limits post Dragon Soul 5% nerf during our progression run last week on Morchok by seeing who could stay alive the longest by standing in the bad and tunnelling the boss (for the record, I died first – Raziel not long after), but we did that with our own guildies laughing at our bravado *cough* (stupidity) *cough*, and we still one-shot the boss with both of us dead, so no harm was done, and we didn’t screw anyone else over.

But I digress – the fact that this ‘shaman’ lowlife was doing it purely for WOL rankings also seems to be pure insanity – surely WOL can delineate the difference between normal and LFR runs, and if it can’t, it should. This shaman wasted 30 minutes of 20 total stranger’s time for nothing but repair cost to everyone else. Needless to say, the group decided to band together and kick the shaman – the first vote failed (due to the other healers being ‘paid’ not to heal and obviously wanting to get and/or keep their gold – my guess is that they were only going to be paid AFTERWARDS) but the second vote went through. The result? Their two other guildies in the run, plus three of the four ‘paid’ healers dropped group, and the one remaining healer pulled the boss then dropped group. GG douchebags.

I honestly can’t believe that anyone would try this in LFR, and the absolute selfishness of it dumbfounds me.

The Daily Blink as muse…

So let’s get down to it – the idea for this blog actually came via the hilarious Daily Blink, and this particular comic. After all, I am normally a sane, rational kitty who turns into complete hellcat thanks to LFR…

Yes, all normally sane females DO turn into raging lunatics in LFR!
