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.

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.

.....Kickstarter is not the answer to every interesting question.

F'r instance, setting something like that up to make Gargles shirts again, or the toothbrushes --

That's just the nuttiness getting to me. Right?


I'm serious, this is quantifiably A Bad Idea, right?
norcumi: (spike sez you go)
EEEEEEEEEE! Jeeves is going to be Mycroft? Oh hells YES!!!!! Sign me up for even more fangirling!

"Hey, I have five spare minutes while Quindar is doing stuff, so I'll do a little archaeology."

Hepzibet has put a temporary hold on the Uldum search for the staff of a riding bug. It's gotten to the point where it's left even her feeling like this is a fool's errand (though she's still going to keep at it, just after a bit of a break). Earlier in the week, it was off to Northrend, where the Neruibians supposedly have neato stuff (and at least she's only found 1 nerubian and 1 vykrul thing, so why not? At least it's not more feathered raptor arms).

"Hey! Two minutes in, and I finally can get my 6-clawed cornice!"

And what pops up as Hepzibet's next neruibian project? The rare that turns you INTO a bug.

... the ONLY reason I am here in Northrend.

... irony, i hate you. You just want me to go back to trying to farm Uldum, don't you?
norcumi: (lurking lizard)
If you have any appreciation of/for Greek mythology whatsoever, go NOW and read This Is Not A Chick Flick. A retelling of Hades and Persephone that one should not read while drinking anything.

Um. That's a lot. Does anyone have any recommendations?
