I'll miss Scholomance, at least BRD is still long and stuff

It wasn't really the same anymore, it had changed  already. Lower level , and a heck of a lot easier.

I still went there  quite a lot to farm and occasionally just to stand around looking at stuff.

My plan was to pretty much ignore the place and not  make any sort of mad last minute dash for anything.  I was sad  and annoyed it was changing but there was nothing I could do and  I may someday  drag my why I stopped preparing for MoP  post out of draft, but otherwise it was pretty much the past already to me.

My son farmed there a lot he loves the Deathbone armour, actually pretty much all the armour from there, especially the sets off the six bosses, you had to clear to get Gandling.

Last friday he decided to come back to playing and rolled a warrior and the warrior  wanted the armour. So just after six pm we made a pair of characters a  Forsaken warrior for him and a Forsaken hunter for myself. We were going to solo  Scholomance as soon as we could and get the armour  before the patch.

We leveled  to 45 by Sunday. I stayed up late to double box the characters after he went to bed.

Hey, stop feigning,  bug killed them!  Oh wait....
45 wasn't quite efficient for farming , so we leveled some more.

At 55 we got  most of the Blood mail set and His warrior had  the sawbones shirt.

He was frustrated so he took a break. I got the characters to 61 and we started  to farm again.

At least Bug (my pet as opposed to Beetle the green beetle my goblin has, names are hard )  was enjoying the mushrooms.

Mt son didn't get  all the armour he had wanted and although I only desired the Bloodmail pants, I got the set.

We  had fun though.
Why can't we just take it off him? a blacksmith could make it fit! Right? Right?!

 We fished some more.
I don't think that's driftwood, pretty sure it's part of a coffin
A moment of silence
After the lad went to bed I took the pair back and ran them through a few more times. No shirt, no Deathbone belt, but at least I felt like I gave it a good try.

Why does he make a pointy stick?

Dude has a sword , yeah it's short, but  a sharp stick?

Yeah, I know  it's so he can hand his pointy stick to the orc.

This thought brought to you by my youngest.

In defense of Mylune

A lot of people hate her. Or at least they say they do. Why?

I'm not sure, but I have some thoughts.

She cares about cute little animals.

She  does speak in a childish way.

Her speech makes her seem a little simple minded.

She's a feminine stereotype.

Many WoW players fancy themselves as big manly tough hero types, (at least a lot I've met  if you aren't, this isn't about you!) rescuing small animals  is not really in their line of work, because they are more the slaying dragon  and killing cultist types. So there they are in Mount Hyjal and this sexy Dryad (they are  sorta) asks you to rescue some baby animals. You were here to destroy stuff and save the world and those little animals  are pretty hard to grab. (not that I think so it seemed a really easy quest  like free exp for doing something nice!)

Cute animals , only girls like the cute animals , men never like cute kittys or puppys right? ( there are no kittys or puppys in Hyjal , I know) they shoot deer and squirrels and rabbits for dinner. She cares. That silly Dryad why does she worry about the cute they don't matter. So like a girl !

I don't know about you but it would bother me to see baby animals burn to death, especially if I could save them .

She does speak in a cutsy way, this sorta bothers me ( stereotypes bleh!) but then, I have been known to speak in a cutsy way about small animals baby bunny pictures make me squee, bug pictures too. ( there are some seriously adorable insects and spiders out there). Only girls or women are supposed to squee about cute things.

Her speech makes her seem childlike , or perhaps not all that smart. Who knows how old she is she's a dryad she could be a dryad tween or child ( I know she looks sexually mature but  she may not be  for her species and culture). She may also not be the smartest Dryad in the grove, nothing wrong with that, at least she's not an asshole. In our culture it's also  just fine to pick on those who may be less intelligent. Like intelligence is all that matters I'll take compassionate   person  any day over callous intellectual. ( I am all for disdaining the willfully ignorant especially if they are harming people with their thoughts or lack thereof ,but someone with a lower IQ is usually trying to learn, or at least not trying to harm.)

Mostly I think it's because she's girly, she likes cute animals and acts in a culturally feminine way. This is a reason in our culture to hate on someone. Because well girl stuff it's lesser, at least in gamer culture . what insults do people use in our culture , throws like a girl,  cry like a girl ( men don't have feelings unless someone doesn't want to  sleep with them, then let the dam burst and let the flood of hurt feeling, whining  and cries of anguish begin!) . the default gamer is assumed to be a dude. Many women or girls who game will jump on hating the girl stuff to be one of the guys , not like those lesser girly girls!

 But I say when in the game there is a chance to care  and do something kind, jump on that chance ( not in a stomping it to death way) revel it, save the cute little animals with the wet noses , snuggle them and embrace the inner compassion that makes us all human because guys can care too so get with it!

Everyone should have a little Mylune in them especially in this horrifically violent World of Warcraft where we commit atrocitys everyday!

Are you doing something or nothing?

We sit like we are doing nothing nothing.

Sit there watching  a box.

It does nothing.

I toss beetle some grapes.

Ver tells me to give him a name and I feed him too much.

I want him to like me,  not that it matters anyway.

The gnome has no takers for his clothes washing  elemental and tub.

If he was a goblin he probably would , goblins could sell a useless rock to someone.

While the world was ending.

I saw that once.

The world didn't quite end, it just seemed like it would.

Sometimes a book appears,

Dalaran is funny like that.

Too much magic .

Portals are NOT garbage bins!

Yeah, maybe.

I imagine a doomguard being hit in the head by a half eaten strider leg, or maybe even a half eaten pie as it goes about it's (the doom guard) business in the nether.

It amuses me.

I think Ver might consider having her robe washed,  But I doubt it will help.

I doze off for a bit.

I wake up to Ver's felhunter  chewing on something.

I grab the book form it's mouth.

It's about  the school of magic Enchanting.

I look it over, read the first page.

It's a bit soggy, dripping actually .

I hand it to Ver  She flips through it.

Some human , runs up and grabs it from her.

By the look of his armour he's a paladin.

I shrug.

We saw enough, he can have the demon slobber covered thing.

We walk back to the inn.

Ver wants some more Gnomeregon Gnuggets from the faire

We check our mail.

Another book.

Ver has one too!

I'm tired of books.

I read it anyway.

Time to change passwords

I sometimes sit for five to fifteen minutes trying to remember my log in info for WoW. Sad I know, since I do play almost every day.

My memory is sorta bad , I'm sure I've mentioned this, maybe? I forget. ( haha she thinks she's funny.)

So with the security breach at blizzard I've changed my passwords for the kids' and my battlenet accounts.

It will now probably take me a half hour to remember or  something like that.

No PuGing, just me and my bug

After an unpleasant PuG,  (reporting racist slurs and some rather unpleasant language, plus the  annoying jerk making a level 1 to explain why his name and such were fine free speech idiocy and all)  I stopped, just haven't played any of my healers or tanks. I give up and  right now sorta just feel people are too annoying to interact with.

 I did play a little with my son but he is just ever so bored of WoW at the moment. We will take up the hunters again as soon as his interest returns.

So I played pokemon a bit , bred a very nice Meowth, Larvesta and Purrloin I (I know who uses those but I have my favourites).  I also bread about three hundred more Gastlys but still no shiny! French ditto is really  tired of the whole breeding thing, I think.

Then I read about  another It came from the blog scavenger hunt. I love scavenger hunts,  I used to run them in my  second guild.I have a weird memory,  I'm really good at remembering where grey items drop, but greens, blues, epics, useful rotations  and  any movie or television show I'll usually forget , grey useless items though I'm right there. So, since I made another linked account ( I have no friends, well in RL I do, and one in game and the Obsidian Nightwing is rather cool). I made two characters, well three ( why not take advantage of the triple exp)  a forsaken hunter sort of to be a bank alt a forsaken warlock to level with the hunter and a goblin shaman, my idea was level the hunter and warlock to  14 or whatever goblins get out of the starting area then level the warlock and shaman to 40 for the fast mount.

The hunter turned out to be a bit more fun then expected, the shaman languished in the lost isles  while zombies swarmed about. ( she's out now, kinda doing the banker thing, although I think she only knows how to use the return mail  option.) 

By that Friday the hunter was 40 with a very cute green beetle. I love bugs. Then I realized there were so many bugs to collect and scorpions and arachnids, (no fireflys, too flashy, because seizures )  the occasional cat and  carrion bird, and later today some sort of worm, maybe a silithid. I'm having fun, no jerks , no LFG , just that  warlock following me around  ( she's sorta creepy but eh, whatever. also her fashion sense ....)

I know too cute for words, beetle loves me.
I race changed to a goblin, since I really only like forsaken warlocks and priests. I gave her two of my precious card game pets. ( the little scarab is so cute with her big beetle). I'm designing outfits that match her pets, so far  I have one  and a half done.   Not grouping has taken off the pressure of feeling  I have to be good at things,  I may be a sucky hunter, but well I play for fun and don't impact on others so no harm caused. I won't call her my main because I don't want to jinx things, but I'm really enjoying myself and finding the game relaxing and fun once again.

Anyhow the scavenger hunt was fun, I got a prize, I think I'll stay, to be sure the people in the guild chat channel all seem pretty nice, I may even join the main guild, but an still a bit too shy to ask.
