Crikey!

We went in to see the Lich King for the second time last night, and this fight is a learning process and a work in progress.  That’s the simplest way to put it.  One spell- and one spell alone- can jack it all up.

Defile.

It looks like this if you fail. Continue reading

Burning A Hole In My Bag

So, my basic holy T-10 four-set is done, and now  I have like close to 120Emblems of Frost burning a hole in my backpack.  I will open my bag and just stare at them, wondering, contemplating wtf to do with them.  I know my toons will use them.  There’s no doubt about that; however, the question becomes who then should get them?

Should it be DanityKane the Death Knight whose only purpose when he came into WoW was to help Exanna with herbing, flasks and eventually primordial saronites?  Danity ran all the dailies and weeklies helping out so Exanna could get her crafted items that much faster.  She has been patient, foregoing her own emblems for Exanna.  Should I reward her now by returning the favor?  Is it time to get primos for Danity?

Or is it time to buy badge gear like Gloves of Ambivalence just to see how they perform in ICC?  I like my four-set but it’s got many basic T-10 parts that are not as powerful as I would like them to be; however, I don’t really want to give up any haste.

Maybe it’s time to start a bona fide shadow set.

It could be time to just cash the Frost Emblems in for primos and then liquidate those, but while gold is nice, I don’t know if that is wise.

I wish for several things right now:

  1. The ability to give your emblems to an alt.
  2. The ability to mail said emblems and other items across realms.
  3. The ability to explain to Blizzard that I know passing emblems to an alt seems less challenging, but hey, I only have so much time to get stuff done.  LOL

Until those things happen, I will just sit and stare at my bags.  I remember when people saved upo hundreds of badges for a patch in BC days for the new items that came out when we got the Isle of Quel’Denas- or whatever it was called.  Do you remember all that new gear released in Shatt?  What a frenzy that was when all that finally opened up?  It was like “Running of the Brides” at Filene’s Basement.  “Hey, don’t stand right on top of the darn thing!  We can’t click it that way!”

While I am staring at my bags, I am still staring at my inbox and comments waiting to hear from you, too.  Ahem….  What do you think?

Happy Raiding!

Do these sunglasses make me look phat?

Double take… wha?

Papa.. paparazzi!

 I have to admit my Ruby Shades made me the center of attention for the five minutes Exanna had them on.  I remember HarisPilton selling them for some insane amount several patches ago- like 2000g maybe?  She no longer carries the item. So when DanityKane found them on the AH for 91g, I scooped them up.  I also noticed another pair for about 5000g.  To sell or not to sell?  I kept them on the DK for about a week and then sent them to Exxy today.

As soon as I put them on, someone running stopped and just had to check me out.  I felt sooooo cool. 

/giggle

After that, I took them to the AH straightaway and put them up for 4500g- lowest price ATM.  Will they sell?  I am unsure.  I would love to have the extra gold, but even if they don’t sell, I can keep them in my bags or bank, transfer them between toons and be the center of attention whenever I want.

It’s sort of like finding high priced designer clothes at a thrift store, you know?  I got a lot for a little. 

Take a picture honey!  It will last forever!  Smooches!

Happy Raiding!

Meh

That’s what I think of my  two-set bonus.  I am quite underwhelmed at this point.  What I need is a log.  I do recall looking over the stats for one quick wipe.  Out of 29 flash heals, the Blessed Healing buff proc’d 20 times which is cool- but it did not heal for that much.  I mean a heal is a heal and that’s good; however, I am not sure it is really enough.  I guess in this case a bonus is a bonus big or small, right?  I kind of look forward to the four set bonus, but then again I wonder if the “chance” something will happen is really worth it.  It’s also weird because there are badge items that are better than the base tier 10 that you could wear in the meantime, but the way our guild operates, unless you buy the base piece, you are out of the running for a token- which in some cases are BiS.  So, a bit of a Catch 22 here, huh?

So now I am mulling over what my bext badge purchase whould be.  Here’s a list which I have not yet ranked by priority:

So these are my options.  What to do, what to do.  I’ve read the lists people have put together and hit up the sites, too.  It’s always a matter of personal preference, but I am interested in reading your lists.  Tell me what you want to wear!  Speaking of which, WoW’s new armory rocks!  I love that my toon looks like me!  Well “in-game” me, anyway. 🙂

Happy Raiding!

I doubt I will buy [Volde’s Cloak of the Night Sky] for 50 Emblems as it does not have haste.  I think I will wait for [Greatcloak of the Turned Champion] to drop off of Saurfang.

10-friggin-k

That’s how CLOSE we got to killing Festergut last night.  1ok!

/sigh

It was crazy because at around 500k the pallies all popped their bubbles because Uncle Fester was about to hit his point of berserker rage.  The bubbles came out just before the entire raid exploded.  I have the Glyph of Spirit of Redemption, so I was up for a good 20 seconds or so after my death?  It loooked like a kill, but too bad it wasn’t.  After that, people sort of lost focus and we started to regress.  So, tonight that mofo dies.

Help Me!

So, I am back up to 60 Emblems of Frost and am contemplating getting a two-set bonus by buying the gloves or buying the Circle of Ossuss to up my haste- which has been lacking ever since I replaced the Hammer of Purified Flame with Frozen Bonespike.  I want to gem the belt with Runed Cardinal Ruby, Purified Dreadstone, and Quick King’s Amber in the eternal belt buckle.  I worry about the haste due to the fact the bosses hit “very hard and very fast.”  I feel like my heals should be able to catch the tank before it even lands.  So…..

Give me your thoughts, please.  I have yet to pull the trigger!  Here’s my armory for those who really want to check it out! 🙂

Happy Raiding!

BiS Boots?

Well, I did it. I pulled the trigger on the Sandals of Consecration.  You may recall that pre-Patch 3.3 I was trying to make as much gold as possible so I could purchase Primordial Saronite as needed.  Well I got up to just 26k (can you believe some people have 300k in their bank!?!), and then I decided my DK needed work.  That took me down to about 21k.  But last night, I went down to just over 10k b/c I ended up buying four Primordial Saronite to make the boots.  My guild gave me one.  Making those boots was bittersweet for me.  I was in sort of a bad mood, but I do have them now.  It is what I worked for after all.  Plus my DK is still hard at work working on the saronite for the next pattern,  Lightweave Leggings.  Anyhoo, I will try my boots out tonight in ICC 10.  Wish me luck!

Off to start my day… Happy Raiding!

Proc-alicious: The Video

This is video of what I wrote about in the previous post, “Proc-alicious!”  I use the Power Auras add-on to tell me when certain things proc.  Here’s a list of what I have programmed:

  • Serendipity: big blue box
  • Ashen Verdict Ring proc: white half-circle
  • Talisman of Resurgence proc: “POWER”

If you go to fullscreen you can see the numbers better.  I also use Mik’s Scrolling Battle Text add-on.
