The title says it all. This expansion has some major glaring flaws. But overall blizzard has done well.
*Garrisons are interesting and time consuming.
*The raids are challenging enough to be entertaining but not so hard that you cry when going in one.
* The scenery is well done.
* The quests have good chains.
* Professions have been beaten into the ground. Raw materials are worthless
*The 3 crafted item limit seems stupid when you need 100 of a special crafting mat to make them.
*The flight paths are still not streamlined like they need to be.
I have levelled 3 toons to 100, Codex (Druid) Forzaken (Hunter) and druxus (Warlock) I haven’t done alot of healing yet. But I think Marksman spec on hunters is finally well balanced
So in these quiet times before WoD I am working on getting some of the mounts I am missing, Would love to get the 200 mount achievement, Whenever I decide to run my mount run I pretty much go after these mainly

I have decided to come back to the Blogging World. I took a year off because I didn’t know where I wanted this blog to go. I have decided to make this a Gaming Blog that is focesed on World Of Warcraft and will cover other games as the urge hits me. I have been active most of the Panda Expansion.
I am sitting here finishing some last-minute end of expansion chores and preparing to get Forz levelling. before I go live I need to clean out my Personal banks and guild Banks, Put some items into the void storage. And stack some daily quests to turn in for fast xp at launch. I need to make sure food and drinks are bought and ready and all toons are armored up and ready to go. I need to check my add ons and make sure they are good to go. Carbonite is no longer being maintained so I will probably get rid of it and go to the blizzards quest tracker. All industries are shut down for “retooling” with the exception of glyphs. I plan on posting a massive wall of monk glyphs and maybe making a good amount of gold. I will probably donate a lot of stuff to guild banks. Other than that I have enough gold to hold me till I get going again and will start all industries fresh at level 90.
As far as levelling I am going to level my toons in this order:
1. Forz First (85 tankadin)
2. Forzaken (85 Hunter)
3 Codex (85 Guardian Druid)
4. Druxus (85 Warlock)
5. Vodaken (85 Death Knight)
If anyone wants My Battletag is Druxus#1223 Please feel free to add me
As most of you have noticed if you read this blog on the website. I have picked a new theme. I felt it was time for a change and figured a new expansion was the perfect time.
Everyone has already beaten these preparing for MoP post into the ground but I am behind the curve So I figure I would start late. I received a Beta invite and downloaded the beta. I haven’t actually logged in yet, I am hesitant to reveal too much of the new content to myself before launch because it will make the new feeling wear off that much quicker.
Currently on my Achievement hunter I am trying to finish Loremaster before the expansion because blizzard has this evil habit of resetting the stupid thing everytime. As far as who to level when MoP comes out Forzaken (Hunter) will be first Forzaken was the first toon to level 70 and has led the way in every expansion pack so far. After that I am still undecided between Druid or Paladin. The paladin has been pretty much tank only since Wotlk And the druid has always been boom chicken. For MoP the Druid is going to go Feral tank (I think the new in word is Guardian) I may keep the paladin as tank or might go healer. The Lock will probably be the last of the max level toon to move to 90 I enjoy playing the lock, I am just not any good at it.
I am leery of MoP my totally uneducated impression of it is the descent of WoW into more easy mode. I might log into the beta in the next day or 2 and poke around.
I finally obtained thunderfury the other day. I have been working on this for well over a year now and the last 6 months have been waiting on 1 binding to drop. I wanted this weapon because it has one of the best looks in the game and having it separates me from a lot of the player population. Even by todays gold standards this is an expensive weapon. the stat differences are huge but I am still going to try to sneak it out a little and tank with it….Just can’t resist.
I decided during a moment of insanity to schedule a For the Alliance run. I knew we wouldn’t have 40 guildies available which would inevitably mean trade chat pugs. Don’t get me wrong there are some very good players who join groups from trade chat, but for every good player there are 5 retards. When you have 40 people in a raid and a large part of them are non-Guildies it turns into a cat herding adventure. Everyone wants do it the way they think is best and they have no problem relaying that thought to everyone.
I made the executive decision to hit silvermoon city first mainly because the horde could care less if silvermoon burned to the ground. I went into silvermoon and found me a nice quiet spot just outside the throne room and I group summoned everyone there. We didn’t have a full raid and we were about 10 short. It went better than I expected but I plan for the worst anyways. It took what seemed like a month to kill the blood elf king. 103 Million Hit points are going to take a while anyways but since we were short on dps it took even longer. Luckily for us only a few horde made an appearance and none of those were able to pose much of a threat. We downed the king and quickly left the area.
We went to Scenic thunderbluff next and group summoned on top of the main tower. We dropped in on the king and for some strange reason every single bluff guard in the entire city appeared. There were at least 50 guards there and they took a bite out of the raid, the people that died ran back and reengaged. The fun thing about bloodhoof is the fact that he stomps and drops aggro every few seconds so the tanks were having a taunt fest to keep him under control. Since we were now sitting at 35 people in the raid he went down much faster and we were able to put him down and escape. Once again we had only a few horde and they were quickly converted into honor points.
Undercity was our next stop. We grouped up attacked and promptly wiped because someone accidentally pulled the sylvanis. I ran back found a quiet corner and mass ressed everyone. We took our time got our buffs on and engaged. This was the most annoying boss so far because she spam fears. And disappears often which requires you to retarget her which can be difficult in a crowd. I set focus but when she disappears it clears the focus. We had to kill her adds twice and the horde were beginning to wake up and we were encountering better horde defense but still not a legitimate threat to the raid. She went down finally and we ported to theramore for the final city.
We grouped outside of orgrimmar and as I said at the start running a random 40 man raid is much like herding cats. I gave exact instructions as to the plan of attack, How we were entering the city, the interior design of the throne room and I even gave a few of the better pvp’s a role as free safety’s to gank the horde when they came in. However we had a few people that decided to go in the front door instead of following the plan. A few people didn’t want to wait for the raid to form up in the right spot and as soon as we started in the world server crashed. More proof that blizzard favors the horde.
I will have to try orgrimmar another day because you only get one shot before the horde will make it impossible mostly due to the fact that the leader is within spitting distance of the AH and bank. So I will have to wrangle cats at least one more time for the achievement. There should be an achievement for leading a successful 40 man pug……….Cat Herder
Once in a while I come across something in game that either makes me go Huh? or laugh my butt off this one did both.
Tank went on to kill almost everyone who swam out to do the Captain Harris Quest. I went into camo and went far enough away to avoid getting killed yet still close enough to enjoy the fun.
