Still around

Not much to report really. We haven't really run anything in guild lately other than bashing our head against the wall in ICC10 and some adventures in heroics. I have been running some heroics and leveling some toons but not much exciting to report. I have a feeling though that we might make some progress this week. I should be getting my ring with the Ashen Verdict this week and I think we have a good group so before to long we'll start making some good progress and have some good boss kill stories going on.

I hate Heroic Halls of Reflection

I know strong words right. That place just gets my hackles all in an uproar. the trash is just vicious and there is not even a second to think before the next group spawns. I am basically ratcheted up for 10 waves of brain frying pressure. Now I really like tanking and having a challenge is all well and good but that place just...


Sorry I just had to get that out. I don't know what it is exactly that gets me but it seems like something goes wrong at just the wrong time every time I'm there. Somethings on cooldown or somebody pulls ag before I can get them, and if they get by me anybody else can easily be 1-2 shotted and consecrate doesn't do enough when they simply run on it for a second. Then that stupid hunter will disengage out and start shooting my healer and the mage will see someone and not come to the corner and will sit back there and blast away. Alright I don't even want to think about it anymore

Beer is good
Beer is good
Beer is good
and stuff!!

By a band called Psychostick. Its a good one. I needed that. OK I'm better now. I am starting to enjoy some of the more challenging aspects of the new heroics. I have even started using some CC here and there to smooth out the process a bit here and there. I know that they listen now because all you could here about was the death of CC from the blogosphere for the last year so what did they do for these dungeons basically force-feed CC down our throats, casters all spread out around the room, there's no way I can gather up all those groups for my party to fast twitch their AOE button and smack-down the bad guys(Trust me I tried it wasn't pretty). That's all I guess I just needed to get that out of my system.
K Out!!

I am going to do better this time

I just thought I would post that I am in between contracts with my employer right now. During the summer when I wasn't working I really didn't post at all and I don't want to do that this time. I don't expect to not be working nearly as long this time but I can't say for sure. I have been playing sporadically. I played a ton right as the new year kicked off. I was on all the time for almost a week. I kind of burned myself out. I took a couple days away from WOW and it was good, reading and watching movies. I even downloaded the trial to Fallen Earth. It has some really entertaining parts and I can see that it is a pretty fun game. Its nowhere near as polished as WOW but how could it be being a new game and WOW has been out for 5+ years. It is easy to get into the storyline. I felt the controls were a little goofy but I changed some of the key binds and that made it a lot more familiar. I don't know if I'll play it much beyond the trial if at all but it was definitely interesting to play a different game since I barely play anything besides WOW anymore. The only thing I turn my xbox on for is instant view Netflix movies, which is awesome but I used to play a ton of console games, I have barely played any of them at all in the last 2 years. Mostly in WOW I've just been leveling alts. I am just so tired of dailies and I ran a ton of the random heroics I was just looking for something different. I do like running the low level dungeons with my alts although its probably 50-50 on whether you'll finish the dungeon or not.Well this got longer than I thought it would but I hadn't been on for a while so I guess that makes sense.
K Out!

Right my blog, oops

I have been busy and well I've been playing instead of blogging. I have done a few things in game though. That pic is of me with my new mount and pet. I planned ahead a little and got 50 mounts and 50 pets at the same time. I also like having the Champion of the Frozen Wastes title finally. I was really happy for us last week as we were finally able to kill Maly and get a bunch of people the title. We still are not having luck with Marrowgar but I think its mostly just positioning and practice. I have gotten a little tired of the random dungeons but I need to get back into it. I still would like a couple things from the triumph vendor and I could really start working on my dps gear too. I am also not a big fan of H HoR that place is kind of annoying.
