It’s been a while…

… since my last blog post. I guess I’ve just been lazy and waiting for something interesting to write about. Well I have it!

My Guild are awesome! Yet I cannot write a thing while I am online due to too many distractions. Like tonight, one minute we’re being asked if we bought the new Prodigy album and we’re all singing Aqua songs. <.<

“I’m a barbie girl, in a Barbie world, it’s like plastic, it’s fantastic…” -Holds gun to head-

WE HAVE OVER 300 MEMBERS NOW!!! I have a feeling Digitalis has been bouncing up and down inside. 😉

On to a more serious note though.

Friday consisted of Obsidum Sanctum 10 man (First time ever :-D). A couple of people kept disconnecting, including me, before the first boss. It was really funny when I managed to log back in, after disconnecting, to find everyone nekkid. xD (Ok, so that wasn’t very serious but it was amusing :-p)

Nakedness caused by disconnecting!

Nakedness caused by disconnecting!

We wiped on the last boss, because the raid leader failed to tell me about the lava walls. <.< Once everyone knew the tactics it was a smooth fight and I have learned a new love for Restoration Shamans (<3 Chain Heal). I spent most of my Emblems of Heroism on a necklace which is quite nice. ^^

Saturday was a day of levelling horde characters and heroics. Wraigth and I got our Blood Elves up to level 10 while Nessa  got hers up to 24. I also did some quests on my Death Knight, Raeg.

Woot! Go me :p

Woot! Go me :p

Later we pulled together a group with a couple of DPS and did Heroic Halls of Stone, which was the daily heroic. With great difficukty due to frame rate issues. We got there in the end though. Then we did Heroic Utguard Keep and Violet Hold. This was way after midnight and we still managed to do each within 45 minutes. =]

Hate hate hate Halls of Stone!

I managed to get my 100th Stonekeeper Shard too! 😀

77 shards left to spend on nothing =/

Just need 133 more for shoulders for my mage! 😀

Sunday was farming Northrend herbs, flying around in my slow flight form. The reason for this… Pennies for my epic flight form. -sigh- This was after finally getting Raeg to level 63. 🙂 I also helped Nessa and Wraigth with the Ring of Blood quests in Nagrand (only the last fight though). Then it was off to heal Molten Core and Blackwing Lair.

Considering I have generally been lazy this weekend… I’ve actually done quite a lot. Healing pre-TBC raids and doing heroics. It’s been an action packed weekend… and I wasn’t even supposed to be playing. (It was my father’s birthday on Sunday :-p)

Note: This is an edit of the original post because I couldn’t sort out the tiny hiccups within the original.

Rep grinding…

 … is tedious work and pretty much what I spend half my life doing these days. Spent about alf an hour doing lowbie quests in Bloodmyst for Exodar rep when I got in from Uni yesterday. Will be doing more of that today, I will get my Elekk! Then it’s off to get Ironforge and Gnomregan rep. -sigh-

I did help Faulsey get his Belt and Legs for Ellaria on Sunday though (which was unbelievably funny). On that subject, I think it was the third time we downed the Maker when it dropped a libram and Faulsey could not contain his contempt for him any longer…

Lightning emphasises Ellaria's RAEG!!!

Ellaria's RAEG!!!

Ellaria is not a Paladin!

Finally, after coming up with the plan of actually bringing Faulsey to clear the way to the boss quicker, the Maker finally dropped the belt and then the Watchkeeper also dropped the legs… first try! I think the words “Kiss my ass!” came at this point along with the very fitting rude gesture from Ellaria :p

Monday night I finally got friendly with the Bloodsail Bucaneers and did the quest for my achievement. Woot! I am now Bloodsail Admial Kiaara! It started off as a group thing with Nessa and Wraigth, but with my connection being cut at midnight most nights and being at Uni most days, Nessa got hers first, then Wraigth and then finally me.

 

 Bloodsail Admirals Kiaara, Wraigth and Nessa.

Finally did Heroic violet hold yesterday and got the achievement, woot! I respecced back to Resto first of course. Also got myself some feral trousers from doing the -key quest- and won the greed roll for some spellcaster cuffs so very pleased. 😀

Hip hip, Hurray!

Hip hip, Hurray!

 Later we attempted Nexus heroic… wiped so many times on trash because of a 16k crit whirlwind stunning and killing me =/ So we gave up… I will attempt it again at a later date when I have better gear.

 And there’s the typical semi-nekkid (Just a tabard) dancing on the Stormwind fountain along with Digitalis’ alts, Shamanax’s bank alt and the wonderful Pillan. =]

 Apart from the insanity that takes place on the server, that’s it for now. Thank you for taking the time to read this post! =]

Yesterday’s Events

Just a short post today to summarise what happened yesterday. Basically, it was a day full of fun and games. =]

I managed to get Kasouken into her 36th season yesterday. This was after she escorted Karmesh, from the guild, to Ravenholdt Manor for the Dangerous Love quest line. He helped her out with a couple of Wanted! Quests to get her there quicker and took her through Scarlet Monastery which I am very grateful for.

Then just as she reached 36th, Kiaara received an invite to heal in the daily Heroic which was Culling of Stratholme, woot! Luckily, it’s the easiest heroic she’s ever been to, so her lack of epic gear did not matter. Kiaara managed to collect enough Emblems of Heroism in order to get herself a new Idol too. =] This was quite a fun run, having Wraigth and Nessa there too. Three Druids, three different Specs. (Wraigth was feral and Nessa was Balance.)

Kiaara took Wraigth through Ramparts on his Death Knight last night. Then she took him back, with a little help from Karmesh on his Death Knight, this time though, she respecced to feral, digging out her old gear (brushed the dust and cobwebs off first, of course :P).  

 Feral Spec Deadraffy

Then, the early hours of this-morning Wraigth offered to take Aruzak and Ellaria through the Ramparts. So Kiaara tagged along as feral (big mistake, should have gone back to resto.) Wraigth was Boomkin tanking which was funny because Kiaara could barely keep him alive with her Healing Touch and Nourish :p Aruzak died on the first boss due to my lack of healing. Then Wraigth ran through the mobs at the top, just before the last two bossed, with starfall, pulling the whole lot! He died of course :p So I took over in bear form, but unfortunately Ellaria died too, but (I still do not know how) resurrected herself.

I am thinking of going tank/resto when duel spec is available. Will cost me a lot of gold, which means putting epic flight off for even longer. We’ll see what happens, but I am building a feral set of gear along with my resto set.

Introductions

Hello there everyone =] I’m Kaso or OJ, whichever you prefer.

So, this is my first REAL blog, did sort of have one before but never updated it, nothing was happening in my life :p. OK, so I have started this blog a bit late into the game. Who cares?

 Basically I’ve been playing World of Warcraft since August 2008. My main character Kiaara is a Night Elf Druid and in her 80th season -grins- quite pleased with that, if I must say so myself. She’s a Restoration Druid, which basically means she’s a healer (most people will know what I’m on about I know, but bear with me :p). She has only been Resto for the past 6 seasons, levelled to 74 as Feral, which I must admit is awesome and I do miss it. (Respecced to Resto so I could heal for instances).

Resto Druid

 Resto wasn’t too bad while I was in Northrend went from Prowl, Pounce, Claw, multiple mangle, etc. to Roots, Starfall, spam wrath and spam moonfire. So I dealt loads of damage and took little :p

Resto Leveling

 As soon as I reached my 77th season, I got my flight form, which I love don’t get me wrong, but I cannot wait until I get swift flight form, this one is soooo slow :p I had to wait until 78th till I could get my Gryphon and Northrend flying though, had to make the pennies, got there in the end though. I’m about 4.6k gold from getting epic/swift flying (anyone got any spare pennies lying in their bags? xD).

Flight Form

 

Flying Mount in the form of a Snowy Gryphon!

Unfortunetly, I didn’t get a screenshot of when I reached my 80th season, which sucks =[ (it was an epic moment) if I remember correctly, I was in the middle of Halls of Stone -smiles as she remembers-.

Ding! Lvl 80!

 Since I reached my 80th season, I have been trying to grind reputations, get epic gear and of course take part in the festivals. =] Today for instance I got ‘Fool for Love’ the Love is in the Air achievement, which comes with a snazzy title ‘… the Love Fool’

 fool-for-love

 It’s not all work and no play though -gigges- most of the time I just mess around with my online and in real life (IRL) friends: Kazura, Faulsey, Yuanjia, Wraigth and Nessa. (I mean messing around xD). Put three very childish adults together with some Nogenflogger Elixer and Tanaris is full of little Druids running around at 60% increased speed :p

nogenflogger

 Well, I must thank you all for reading my introductions and ramblings, I will introduce my main alts soon, since this post is long enough already :p. Oh, I bet you were all wondering “why’s she called OJ?” when you read the start. Well weren’t you? Well, Faulsey called me Kia-ora once, which is an orange juice (incase you didn’t already know, if not, you do now xD) and ever since Kazura has called me OJ and it has stuck. It has become my in-party nickname, and I like it. =]
