Out of the Slump

Day 8 of resub, level 104… still.

I was really struggling when I logged in to find the motivation to finish the Totem quests. It wasn’t until Mr B pointed out I only had 2 chapters left, that I perked up and my MUST-COMPLETE-ACHIEVEMENTS brain kicked in and gave me the motivation to finish. I did quite enjoy shooting the Bolas things off Thunder Totem pewpewing the weird harpy things out the sky. Are they Harpies? Looked like them anyway.

I was a bit dubious about going to the next part of the zone to be honest. I don’t want to follow Tauren backside through caves looking at visions and doing escort quests, so imagine my delight when I get taken to…










…Hemet Nesingwary quests!

I LOVE the Nesingwary quest lines. I know people find them really dull – kill a hundred boar. Kill another hundred deer. Oh, whilst you’re there, kill a million bears too. BUT I love that it’s always in a pretty place and I love there’s always a big group of quests you accept all at once so you go away, get them done, then hand in together for a massive chunk of xp. Nice.

Whilst I was doing this, I needed a super powerful friend to help me kill the super powerful scary panther type dude so I asked my good gnome @chromee_gnome to help. Bless him, he rescues me so often. We also take lots of rides on his rocket (don’t be dirty!)

I hope he doesn’t mind that I took his picture ^^


I forgot to ask what Mr B did before he went to bed. I imagine more levelling. He’s predictable like that.

In other news, I must get onto ZandCinder’s blog challenge this week. It’s proving to be difficult to decide what to write about!

Hello, Highmountain!

Resub Day 5, level 103

I finally got out of Azsuna today. I say that, it wasn’t that bad… I enjoyed the spectral dragons and the cool mana ponds and the pretty horses. I’m looking forward to exploring somewhere new, after all the withered decaying things, I hope it’ll be interesting!

I also handed a lot of breadcrumb quests in at Dalaran – profession starters mostly, and I finally ran into this guy:


I’ve heard some interesting things, so I’m looking forward to spending some time with him. I really enjoyed the Halfhill cooking and farming quests, I hope he doesn’t pi** me off now 😀

Mr B: altoholism strikes again and I’m now levelling the Shaman. I really wasn’t getting on with the Demon Hunter and Hunter was boring, so I’ve respecced enhancement and we’ll see how this goes. I wasn’t too impressed with doing the opening scenarios again, but I made pretty good progress into level 102 today. 

It’s a shame we can’t play together at the moment (only one PC!) as we are around the same level for a change. Usually I’m at max and he’s levelling another alt, so it’s a novelty. I suppose it does save us arguing!!


ZandCinder’s Blog Challenge #15

Why do you love WoW and what makes you keep coming back to it?

I’ve been trying to catch up with all the blogs I’ve missed out on and reconnect with what used to be – and I’m sure still is – a really lovely blogging community. I stumbled upon this gem en route… find it here.

I know I’ve come in a bit late to the game, but I hope you don’t mind me joining in with your challenge and this topic seems particularly apt.

Mr B: it’s simple really. The lore. The endless game play. Something for everyone. I’ve been playing so many years, as have others, that it’s testament to how much game play there is. I’ve been so impressed with this expansion so far, I can’t wait to really get stuck in.

Mrs B: I’m not sure if there’s just one or two reasons. For sure, there’s loads of lore and history, but that’s never really been my thing. It’s just so confusing. I know lots come back for the raiding and end content. This is something I enjoy but never have the time for… so it’s not that.

I think the reason I find myself craving WoW above other games I enjoy, is that I can do achievements, I can mog, I can raid, I can chat with friends, I can pet battle, I can solo content or play with friends, I can do nothing but admire the scenery if I like… so many things I enjoy all in a package you can’t find anywhere else. It’s so versatile that there’s always something you could be doing… of course, whether you want to or not is a different issue!

We are looking forward to the next topic!

First Legion Experience

Day 1 of Resub

These are the things I have learnt so far:

  1. Everything has changed – no flying in new Dalaran (this shouldn’t have taken me by surprise but it did!); Class Halls (wut?); talents; Artifacts…
  2. There’s much more storytelling. I’m not a lore-buff and I must admit I may have gone to get some more Easter chocolate through some of the longer cut scenes.
  3. Artifacts are confusing. I need to read.
  4. I lag a lot. Note to self: get Mr B on the case, see if he can fix that.
  5. What the hell is “shimmer”?! It took me about an hour to find it because of its stupid name. I don’t need to have pretty Princess spell names, thanks.
  6. I need to remember I’m bottom of the food chain again and stop running into massive packs of Demons thinking I’m invincible. Note to self: this causes you to die. A lot.
  7. I must buy a more comfortable office chair… numb bum experience is not pleasant.

That’s all for now, I’m going to go cram a year’s worth of MMO Champion!
