Day 15 Monday: 12 runs. No decent loot.

15 days for the event
173 total runs (first 11 characters, plus 1 that leveled sufficiently during the event, across 5 realms)

masks: 8
toxic wastelings: 7
useful necklaces: 2
heartbreaker: 4
forever lovely rose: 4
Perma Peddlefeet: 29

......because I had to do SOMETHING with all those holiday tokens!

....anyone want a creepy goblin cherub or 3?

And in result - Dear love rocket thing: Go step in a bin of legos. We are not doing this again next year.
norcumi: (tired pru does not believe you)
Day 11, Thursday: 12 runs, no goodies beyond holiday tokens. All I can say is:

Dear Healer,
All that time you spent eating floor? Um, yeah, this is why you want to wait for the tank to zone in before starting the event (and why the tank is usually the one to start it). I can understand problems, and I appreciate being thanked for the rez, but maybe you can check and see who's present before you rush along?
Frustrated, the monk

Dear DPS:
That was a fun fight, all around the courtyard. I'm glad we're all overgeared, since the tank was obviously having lag problems (or was a twerp, but given some of the issues I've had in the last few days, I'm guessing lag) and was standing at the entrance the whole. Dang. Fight. Stop starting the event without the tank.
No love, the shammie

Day 12, Friday: 12 kills. Pru got the holiday necklace, which to my surprise she needed, and Kharisa got another vile fumigator's mask. At least that sells for gold.

Day 13, Saturday: 12 kills. Another toxic wasteling. I haven't crunched these numbers, and collating them at the end of this experiment will be... interesting.

Day 14, Sunday: 12 kills. Another toxic wasteling, Hep now has a heartbreaker, and I've realized the mount is at least double what any of my characters have for holiday tokens.

I've a whole flock of Peddlefeet coming down the pike. GLEEP.

Maybe one more day of this, if I think I can get the timing down. Otherwise, lots and lots of creepy goblin cherub things. In the meantime, I'm calling it. No mount this year.
norcumi: (Amelorune is up to no good)
Day 9, Tuesday: nothing to report other than 12 more attempts (… ok, + 1 extra the day before when someone leveled to 89).

Day 10, Wednesday: 12 down, Another DK with a forever lovely rose, Pru got a heartbreaker (... the gnome... that could be... interesting....), Hep got a mask, and there was another toxic wasteling.

Does anyone want some toxic wastelings?
norcumi: (DPS we deliver)
Day 7: somehow, another 11 kills. another fumigator's mask, and Xyv got another heartbreaker. O_o

Day 8: 11 kills, and the hunter is halfway to 89 which could lead to 12 (ARGH WHY AM I DOING THIS?). Another vile fumigator's mask, and another toxic wasteling. Funny how I stopped getting those after the last comment about 'em.

Realized at some point that some alts might have enough currency to get the pink strider mounts, so will be waiting until the last day to buy anything. Let's see how this goes!
norcumi: (whine)
Day 4: 11 kills. Another vile fumigator's mask, my 89 DK got the tanking necklace (greed roll, but he's usually blood so YAY!) and my 4th toxic wasteling.

I'm going to have an entire landfill of these things by the end, aren't I.

Day 5: 11 kills. Sanji now has a forever lovely rose (clotheshorse will also not get rid of it)

Day 6: 11 kills! I think I'm getting this routine now. :D Mel's new forever lovely rose leaves her kinda disappointed (she'd like to wander around clenching it in her teeth, not tucked in her hair). A clothie got a vile fumigator's mask! (Tay won't use it, but nonetheless!) While I think I'm going to get almost all the days down (Sundays are always questionable with regards to time involved), I seriously doubt I'm getting this rocket. Ah well. We'll see.
norcumi: (Amelorune is up to no good)
Day 2: all 11 through the dungeon, got a toxic wastling pet and another forever lovely rose – Kharisa being the packrat sentimentalist that she is, this means I'll be spending another bank space on random THING. I swear, I cannot wait for the toy box.

Am already kind of quite sick of this. Not sure how long this experiment will continue, but will try to keep it going, I think. Also realized I might be able to get EVERYONE to spend tickets on Peddlefeet, meaning I might be looking at 11 (at least!!!) more pets - I already have one, which I considered to be quite enough as it was. Won't be making any effort stretching to get enough, but if it happens -

I will be That Person with a 3 man Peddlefeet team on Non-Valentines holidays. Just because I can PvP like that, I think I shall have to. Note to self, make sure to run a Winter's Helpers 3 man team during the summer holiday.

Day 3: found myself going through the mental notes for what order to do things in, and my excuse was it was very early in the morning when I found myself thinking I should run the Outer Senshi first.

All three horde deathknights GLARED at me. Giggled manically, but it does strike me as more efficient. Also wondered if the level cut off is 89, or 88, since the not-quite-87 hunter might be able to squeak in some runs before the end of holiday.

Found out that VP no longer convert to JP when you hit the limit. VERY disappointed, and spent too long upgrading lots of Kharisa's gear, meaning if/when I finally hit LFR, it'll be even more tricksy gearing up. Yaye.

Results: All 11 down, another vile fumigator's mask (not a clothie), another toxic wasteling, and The Heartbreaker, which – cheeze, I don't even know. Xyvente keeps looking at her new toy funny.

As things stand, expect this to continue the next 11 days or so.
norcumi: (tired pru does not believe you)
So. It's that time of year again. Very little in WoW seems to convey the frustration, anger, and scarcity of happy results in festive events like the Valentine's Day mount. I find the irony delicious.

I also seem to be in a mood. Ysera holds 8 level 90s for me. I've 2 more on other servers, and there's an eager 89 DK working his way up the food chain (it's always death knights with me, though I've another hunter that just hit 86).

Day 1: 11 attempts for the mount. 1 fumigator's mask - not on a clothie, pity - and Kharisa capped her total valor, which hopefully means I'll be getting justice points in the near future, which is very good for the upgrading of account wide items. XD 1 respec of a death knight, since I AM NOT A TANK WHEN IT COMES TO GROUPS THANKYOUVERYMUCH and I don't know how to frost (why did I take that as an alternative spec?!).

We'll see how tomorrow goes. At a quote of .03% drop rate, I doubt that will matter, but let's see what happens!!

As of Tuesday, I will have no idea how to play this game.

Loremaster this weekend. Urg.
norcumi: (80)

Um, Mel?

I'd sit here and pretend to look vaguely smug except for a huge freakin' grin and poke you and go "Seven. Hah." or something, but then you'd rise to the challenge and there's no way I'm doing anything other than just puttering for a good. long. time.

The armory is a little slow, but Vagabonds and Valliants now rocks just a little bit more.

The things I do for my guild. XD o sweet gods, i'm four of the unique contributors and 3 overlapping, this has gone waaaaaay past a hobby halp!
norcumi: (hepzibet)
Ok, that's it, I'm finally squealing like a dementedly hopeful lunatic. I am so ridiculously hopeful for Mists of Pandaria )
norcumi: (kharisa accomplished)
Noxxic - I don't know enough about this sort of thing to know one way or another, but this looks comparable to Elitist Jerks, and somewhat more comprehensible. I find this intriguing.
norcumi: (DPS we deliver)
In the middle of an amusing "back in my day, of vanilla WoW" it hit me.

Anyone else remember the piles and piles of cloth one used to turn in as the only easy way to gain rep with the homecities?

They took that cloth and made tabards of it. THIS is where the resources came from. It was after all, as my lovely conversationalist pointed out, "enough cloth to clothe every begger in Azeroth in princely robes."

I hope I'm as amused by this later tomorrow.

WoW indeed

.... I just made six level capped characters.


Now I need to see if the world stops eating my soul in what otherwise passes for my spare time?

thank gods the priest isn't yammering away in my head; I really don't frikkin' CARE to gear and dungeon and whatthehellsever now that she's level capped.

Shaman is next. Help.
norcumi: (i wanna go home)
.... so, I had this Warcrack idea the other day. It creeped me the hell out. I find that co-dependent relationships creep me the hell out, and this idea was about All That to the point where it gave me the wiggens.

I of course have been having to write it ever since. So. Er. This is one of the stories where I come up for air after a scene, reread it, and go ".... holy crap I'm a sick f##k." Not beta-ed, since I just want this monster out of my brain, and this way I can call it a Halloween horror thing and be done with it.

WARNINGS: rated R (minimum) for gore, torture of animals and people, and mind-f**kery. No, really, I'm not joking about this. Also, not really proof-read. And presumes knowledge of Warcraft. And was mostly written at ungodly in the morning. So in short, please feel free to skip this; I won't be at all offended.

This didn't really help me discover my problems and work through it, it just scared the ever-lovin' crap out of me.

Suffer Well, My Brother )
norcumi: (kharisa accomplished)
Kharisa finally went and kicked Arthas in the teeth. Awww, yeah. She's finally feeling a bit... satisfied.

pointless details )
