This expansion is great! Yeah, I know I have behind… We were moving. We still have not gotten the raid back up yet. We will see there… But in the mean time I have been doing pet battles. Lots of them. So far I am at 366ish pets. It is a good think they upped the cap because I was releasing them right and left in order to stay under 500. The only tameable one I was missing prior to Tuesday was the darn minifernal. I have tried server hopping and a early morning log-ins but so far nothing is working there.
For other pets I have used persistence and good luck plus lots of wowhead research. Of the new 5.1 pets I have 4. The mecha cat, the imp from molten core, the kunlai yeti runt and one other I am completely blanking on at the moment. Oh wait, I also snagged a harpy before I left for work this morning. So I have 5 of them. Have checked for a few others, without luck. I ran molten core and only the imp dropped. I tried to run BWL. I think the new abilities razorgore is suppose to have aren’t working yet. They were there, but they did not do a darn thing. I wiped a couple times, put in a ticket and left. Tonight I might try the other two raids. If anyone is wondering, the raid pets are BoP, but once you equip them they are cage-able.
So far I have 19 lvl 25 pets, obviously some from every family. I am working toward the uber trap you get for having 30 max levels.
I have been checking my progress on wowprogress and I have been holding steady at number 2 on the server. A week or so back I rolled a noob hordy and whispered the number 1 guy. Well I don’t think I will be passing him soon. He has around a hundred more pets than me. The only way for me to get there from here is with CCG pets and some holidays that aren’t any time soon (children’s week). I had a hard grind to get this far because I was not a pet collector before. I had pathetically few prior to the 5.0.
So next up I am thinking to start trading. A lot of folks trade on the forums and such. I will have to gather up a bunch and make a list. I will post it here when I am ready to start swapping. Hopefully my wife did not auction all those spares I sent her.
So I keep getting blog posts about raiding, progression, even patch 5.1 for crying out loud. And it’s been two weeks since I’ve logged into the game. Ugh. Moving ain’t fun. But most of the stuff is here now so maybe after Saturday I’ll have time to set up my gaming rig and get up to date.
I want to raid so bad! I know we’re short people still (ah, Kerick, are you 90 on Winterhoof yet?) and I need to recruit dps. Which I can’t do if I can’t log in, but that’s coming soon! I hope…
At least it’s nice to be moved and getting unpacked. Today starts NaNoWriMo which makes 11 years for me participating in the Write-a-novel-in-November challenge. I’m psyched for that! Got to get my writing habit back too. But honestly that won’t interfere much with WoW. I’m aiming for two hours a day of writing, right after my workday gets over. I’ll be done by the time Rev gets home from work and then if we want to spend an evening in Azeroth there’s nothing stopping us! But I have to get serious about my writing again. Taking a month off was necessary but not fun.
I’m thinking my top priority once we start playing will be to do some more LFR runs. Maybe I can get some of our old raid together? I could try scheduling something for next Saturday night and then we could go from there…
