My quest for Mr Bigglesworth..

started this weekend! My progress is as follows:

I was really suprised at how easy my priest could handle Naxxramas, sure its two expansions behind, but I'm still pretty squishy at the best of times, so was quite pleased to find how easy is was, and was rewarded the Fungal Abomination from Loatheb. The other two pets from Naxxramas are the Stitched Pup from Gluth and the Giant Bone Spider from Maexxna. 1/3 here!

I travelled next to Ahn'quiraj, and this was a totally different story. The Mini Mindslayer will not be a problem to get if I used my priest, however the Anubisath Idol and the Viscidus Globule are a different story. I remembered that Viscidus had a particular tactic where it needed to have Frost spells cast on it to freeze it and then it could be killed. I assumed that they might have taken this mechanic out now that you do not have to be in a raid group to enter these old instances, but I was mistaken and had to leave that one. My lil worgen DK can have a go at that one later! The last remaining pet, Anubisath Idol, drops from the Emperor Twins encounter and being alone, and the mechanic of them having to be kept seperate did not go down so well, so will need to ask for help on that one. 0/3 here :(

Next I took a trip to Blackrock Mountain, to venture into Molten Core and Blackwing Lair. The boss Magmadar drops the Corefire Imp, Goremagg drops the Ashstone Core and Sulfuron Harbringer drops the Harbringer of Flame. Pretty straight forward, no problems with these bosses and was rewarded the Ashstone Core. 1/3.

Last stop was Blackwing Lair, and I had a bad first try on Razorgore, thinking I could just kill it, but I forgot about killing all the eggs in the room, that one hurt... but second go and he was down. The next boss I killed before I died from his debuff so had to run in, but at least it was dead and I could continue. The slloooooowwwww run through the nasty smoke and I arrive at Broodlord Lashlayer and he rewards me with the Death Talon Whelpguard. Only one boss left, Chromaggus and I was really really hoping he would drop the pet, this would mean I would only have to do first boss and then I would be done with Blackwing Lair drops, mainly avoiding the slow gas room, and it dropped! Chrominius, my favourite so far. 2/3.

So 4 on my first raid runs isn't so bad I think!

I have also caught the Arcane Eye from Deadwind pass and the Eternal Strider from The Vale of Eternal Blossoms in the past 2 days, and my current pet total is 458. Slowly creeping up, can't wait for 500!

Dance! Boogie Wonderland

Ha HA!

That was for the Earth, Wind and Fire fans, and also to introduce my elemental themed topic... featuring the Pandaren Spirit Trainers!

We have the Flowing Spirit in the Dread Wastes, the Burning Spirit in Townlong Steppes, the Thundering Spirit just north east of Shrine of Two Moons in The Vale of Eternal Blossoms and the Whispering Spirit in the Jade Forest. You first pick up the quest on the platform outside your factions Shrine town in the vale, and have to defeat each Spirit in order to unlock these as daily trainers to battle. They each have 3 legendary pets, all having a pet version of themselves, which is from the elemental pet family, not much fun for my Mini Thor!

So after a good few pet bandages, I complete the quest, and get the achievement and 5 points. You also get the choice to pick one of the Spirit pets. I personally went for the fire one, since it looks like a kitty. You can get all four so do not panic! The other three you will have to battle the spirit trainers daily in order to get a pet supplies bag which has a chance of containing one of them. You can cage them, so no doubt that these pets will be on the auction house very soon.

Happy battling!


Current Pet Total: 450!

Hey all! Sooooooo much new content /implode

Where to start!!

  1.  New world event - I haven't read much, if anything, about the new Horde Vs Alliance quests and objectives so this has be a good thing! BRING IT!!!!
  2. Pets! - Was thinking of putting this as number one on my list, but surely that would be too predictable ;) Plenty of goings on with pets, firstly can have up to 650 pets in your journal, and I cannot wait to get farming those oh so dear classic raids for the bosses to drop the new ones! (When I say me, I technically mean begging for my boyfriends deathknight to come and blast his way through for me to take the glory and pets <3) There are some various pet battle skill changes, achievement changes and some journal changes/improvements also. Can't wait to get stuck into these!
  3. Class changes - Most importantly for me, Holy Priest improvements! HURRAY! Can't WAIT to try these out. As the weakest healing class, better be some amazing improvement!
  4. Scenarios - New scenarios added, faction specific ones also, will be interested to see the differences in each, probably not so great, but still interesting!
  5. Darkmoon Faire revamped again!? - New pets to catch/buy, and new music for the zone.
As always, there are many more things that will just simply be a great update or implemented part of the patch, but these are the 5 things I have personally picked up on. Will no doubt be posting about more patch goodness in the next few days!

Was hoping that it would be Cinder Kitten day today also, but alas that day is not today. I did love the blue post concerning it though <3

Cinder Kitten Availability
The Cinder Kitten will be available in the near future. They're still a little young yet to separate from their mother and make them available for adoption. (Blue Tracker / Official Forums)

Awww, kittens <3

Off to prepare my priest for tonights raid, ciao for now!

Current Pet Total: 449

1/6 Heroic Heart of Fear

Hey all! Hope you all had a nice weekend!

Just a very quick post to say that we have started our heroic tries in Heart of Fear and were successful in killing the second boss!

So currently we are at 4/6 Heroic Mogu'shan, Killed elite mode Protectors in Terrace and 1/6 in Heroic Heart of Fear! Aint too bad, even if I do say so myself! Apparently I was ranked 7 in the world for priests on that fight, but as it was quickly pointed out, not many guilds take healing priests so it seems :( Still a nice rank right? :>

Current Pet Total: 448

Wolf impression.. can only mean one thing.. Worgen!

A couple of weeks ago, my friends from another server asked me to make an alliance character there just for funsies, and of course I had to pick Worgen. I had never really completed the starting quest zone, and technically still havent. I made a Worgen Warrior at first, got to around lvl 10 and changed my mind, so I'm now a Worgen Deathknight. Sure the instant boost to lvl 55 was appealing, but I've already got a higher lvl warrior, so it makes sense to try to get something else up to 90. So far its quite fun, I don't get to play it as much as I would like as my priest keeps me busy, but the main thing is I can chill with my friends on another server, a largely populated server aswell which is a lovely change from Vashj, hardly see anyone else there, so Ghostlands was a bit overwhelming! Also nice to be alliance again, cannot for the life of me remember where anything is, and of course with Deathwing blowing stuff up, doesn't help much!

Would like to spend some more time on her this week, but we shall see!

Current Pet Total: 444

Monday monday...

bah bahhhh bah bah bah bah~...First monday song that popped into my head! 

Anyway.. Hello :D Haven't posted for a few days, blame free listing weekend on ebay for that!

SO whats been happening?! I have just caught up with the warcraftpets news. Firstly nice to see you can go ahead and pre-order your digital copy of SC2: Heart of Swarm and you can get the pet Baneling as soon as you do so! Nice for those who are not bothered so much with actual collectors edition art books and goodies. I did this myself for MoP, it was either get the digital copy to go for my realm firsts or wait for my actual Collectors Edition and get the goodies and no realm firsts. So technically I did the correct thing and I can still pick up a collectors edition copy to keep, but irl funds say no at the moment! Maybes one for the xmas list! I will be waiting for the actual collectors edition for HotS though, definately looks too cool to not get!

Guild news includes <Dice> now being 4/4 in Terrace of Endless Springs. We then also went and kicked Elegon HC in Mogu'shan! so now 4/6 heroic Mogu'shan! Fantastic stuff! Congrats guys <3 We are currently 906 in the world, 559 in europe and 235 EU english! :>>>>>>

To follow our guild progress, check us out on wowprogress!

Pet news now, and I am currently at 430 pets! I have to thank my guildies Devilisha and Bobanbeer for donating and (through force) selling the Rare monster pet drops, Grinder and the Aqua Strider. Thankyouuuuu

That's all for now!

Terrace of Endless Spring 3/4

Hey all,

Yesterdays raid went pretty well and we managed to clear 3/6 Mogu'shan Vaults and 6/6 Heart of Fear so we could completely focus on Terrace of Endless Spring. This raid is, in my opinion, the most boring in looks, just looks like your in Vale of Eternal Blossoms at a fountain, but nevermind, still a raid with some nice bosses!

The Protectors are essentially a repeat of Iron Council from Ulduar, once you kill one, the rest get boosted and they all have different skills, however total pushovers! The next boss, Tsulong, is another recycled boss tactic taken this time from the Valithria Dreamwalker where you heal the boss in one phase and damage in another, again pretty easy and went down fairly quick. The same applied to Lei Shi but this boss has some nice mechanics, with an invisible mode where you have to aoe to find him and a water wave which pushes you away from the boss. Last boss is Sha of Fear, and this one is just.. wow. We had a few tries on the boss, but nothing amazing to write about haha! A full night to be had on him on Sundays raid.


My Thanks - 2012


Whilst doing my daily website/blog scouting, I noticed the shared topic on BlogAzeroth, Thanksgiving Event 2012. Now since I have only been blogging a very very short while, I have not participated in any shared topics, so here goes my first! :D

Blog Azeroth Thanksgiving Event 2012

Image created here via Wow Item Creator!

Firstly I'd like to thank my boyfriend, as before I even set up my blog, I was having problems getting to terms with how to even use it, and I actually deleted it. I was using wordpress at the time which could have been the problem, but he convinced me if I really wanted/fancied having a blog, then I should just give it time and not totally dismiss the idea, so thanks for the convincing! I can get frustrated very very quickly when I cannot work out how to use certain technological things!

Secondly, I'd like to thank my friend Hannah, aka Jaedia/Seithir in game, as she is a veteran blogger and helped me sooooo much in introducing me to blogging sites to join and actually making it look semi decent with buttons and other gadgets which are just brilliant. Thankyouuuu <3

Thirdly, my guildmates from <Dice> for firstly inviting me back into the world of raiding, was a sweet day to get my Raider rank back, and although I am not the best player (can guarantee if someone has to die on a fight, 99% of the time its me!) I hope I contribute in some way to better the guild and to help our progress.

Fourthly? - lol - I want to thank BlogAzeroth for making me feel welcome and also anyone who has stopped by to have a glance at my blog, I keep checking the page views and it goes up slowly but surely everyday, so thankyou very much :)!

I am from the UK, so thanksgiving isn't technically celebrated, but in my own way, I will make my goal today to catch the Turkey pet from Howling Fjord to show my appreciation

EDIT - Got him :D --->

Empress DOWN! 6/6 HoF Normal

Woohoo! <Dice> join the 6/6 Heart of Fear normal club!

Firstly I love the Empress's look, with her Sha like limbs, and its a bit different to other models we've seen, sure theres been plenty of beetles and things, and I mean plenty! I really like this one, thumbs up to Blizz for it! I'm quite gutted that I got the digital copy of the Collectors Edition now, the actual copy would have included the art book, and I always love looking through that. Think a trip over to Ebay may be in order!

Was actually a pretty straight forward fight, I like the mechanics of the amber traps and the fields on the floor, I was actually a little worried about these when I was first reading the tactics. Was an absolute breeze once you have the fight pattern down.

Also this week, we scooted on over to Mogu'shan Vaults and managed to get Gara'jal HC down! He's proven a bit of a bugger when we've tried previously, I honestly thought I would never get to go and kill him as we had tried a set up with didn't require a holy priest /sadface, however, I went Discipline and smited the hell out of him! Was a nice change to be honest and kinda fun to actually see a fight, rather than my Grid bars! So thats been a lovely boost for the guild, 3/6 there, hopefully next week some progress on Spirit Kings to make it 4/6. Before we get there though, this Wednesday is New Raid Wednesday, again, which brings us Terrace of Endless Spring, looking forward to that!

Last piece of news for now, and a massive thanks and much love to my lovely guildmate, Devilisha, who donated his Darkmoon Rabbit to my collection! I will treasure it forever <3 Thankyouuuuuuu!

Cinder Kitten update

Hey all,

Just a quick post, not much news as haven't been online as much as I'd like to have!

The news concerning the Cinder Kitten new pet store buy put a smile on my face, as it has been announced that Blizzard will donate 100% of the proceeds to help the Hurricane Sandy victims/cleanup. I was going to buy it before, but definately making sure I will buy it asap!

Nice one Blizz <3

400 :D

Hey all :)

Finally reached my 400 pets goal, woohoo! Feels good to have got there, but it doesnt stop at 400! Plenty more to catch and to get back to no.1 on my realm on warcraft pets, I need to get a lead that no-one can beat! Still also got plenty of pet battling achievements to do so that will keep me busy.

So its wednesday, another new raiding week and the first part of Heart of Fear is available to do as Looking for Raid, which personally, I think could have been put off a couple of weeks, things feel a little rushed again in my opinion. <Dice> are currently 3/6 in Heart of Fear, and had a 7.5% try on the 4th boss, so very very nearly there! Can't wait till we clear it and we can get started on some Heroic progress.

Still hunting those rares for the two pets, Aqua Strider and Grinder, thankfully Vashj is a low populated server so I have a decent chance of being able to get to these spawns without too much competition. Seen Grinder on the auction house a couple of times, but wheres the fun in that? Love the chase of a new pet! I've also collected enough tokens to get the new Darkmoon Hatchling which comes with 5.1 soon, so remember to keep 90 tokens back! It's just like the little Mulgore hatchling which I think is adorable anyway, but the purple and green mount I have always admired, so a pet version is perfect <3!

That's pretty much all my news for today, except this last little picture, found him wandering in Kun'lai, a nice tribute to Lonesome George the tortoise/turtle.

Not 1, not 2 but 3!

Yes 3 new amazing pets to add to my collection in one day!!!! /squeal!

Thundering Serpent Hatchling - A huge congratulations to my guildies; Ildrathar, Kolaak, Noktharos, Mojojoe and Lastator for completing all the challenge modes with gold time and getting it as a realm first! Fantastic news for them, but also great news that this pet has been unlocked from the guild vendor.

Crawling Claw - FINALLY the Tol'vir gods have smiled upon me and granted me with this pet! (only took 1 expansion to get...) Nevermind! It is finally mine :)

Last but by no means least, on our Black Market Auction House we had one item only, and it was the Rocket Chicken which is available only, usually, via a loot card from the trading card game, but I managed to get mine tonight for 52k. I'm so overjoyed, I was so nervous waiting for the last few minutes of the auction, in the end I had no competition, and the bid I had put in a few hours before hand stayed till the end. Amazing <3

 Current pet total = 385 - so close!!


Monday, 5 November 2012

Remember remember...

the 5th of November! Can't believe its nearly a week again since I've posted! Very very sorry for that :(

So last time I was discussing the new raid, Heart of Fear, with it just being released last wednesday. As soon as we got in, it felt like a proper raid. Mogu'shan is of course a proper raid in its own right, but I think HoF has that edge to it, that 'evil' aura around it.

So we went and cleared the first two bosses on heroic in Mogu'shan and headed straight for HoF, and we got the first boss down in the first 3-4 tries. Theres some really great mechanics in the fight, he has 2 phases technically, but he moves around before phase 2 hits. He has 3 platforms where he has different abilities which are the typical mind control in a boss fight, which features on many many bosses, but it fits more with the mantid, from doing the Klaxxi quests and mind control being used there too, its a good link to it. Theres a 'dodge it' mechanic, which is taken from the Atrimedes encounter, the yellow rings/sound waves which you have to dodge, and then theres the aoe massive damage platform, but you get some help in the form of shields which reduce this, giving us healers a chance! Once he has done these, he moves to the middle of the room, where he gains all three of these moves, so you never know which order they will come in, just have to react asap. Really good, interesting fight, having to move around and take notice of where he's standing to prepare for the abilities.

The next boss we didn't manage to kill on wednesday, but on thursday we took him out in the first 1-2 tries, and again this boss is really fun. Has the tornado abilities that the rare mantid monsters have, but magnified, and has the fun mechanic of running against the wind and dodging the tornados that come at you (even though I died from this - oops!). Theres not much room for error during that, you step ever so slightly too close and you get scooped up into the tornado and taken back to the start, annoying when that happens, but hopefully that was my first and last time of doing that!

Onto the third boss next, Garalon, a huuuuuge beetle with some good, yet annoying mechanics. It's one of those fights that when you get into it, it becomes second nature to move in a certain time and pattern, but firstly learning those steps took a good few tries. Thankfully theres a mechanic I am not involved in, which is a debuff switcher and carrier, as it sounded far too complicated for me and also my healing would definately have been impaired due to it, and theres enough of that needed to begin with! Sadly I could not make the raid last night, and tonights aswell, so cannot join on the tries, but hopefully he'll be down when I go back there :D
