The Race for a Mace

Posted in Achievements, Healer, Priest on January 7, 2011 by PetitMew

We’re all buffed up with tons of stamina, five levels higher than before and got far better gear then we could get from Ulduar. So why did I go there yesterday with some of my guild members? The almighty legendary mace that is why!

Many of us wanted to go get the Proto-Drake from the hardmodes as we simply did not have that many people to do it before and we also want to get the guild achievements. My reason for going is to finish my mace off as I had collected and paid with DKP a whole nine out of thirty fragments! Yeah you read that right, a whole nine out of thirty. What was more painful was we only have three bosses left to kill and so far only one fragment has dropped making my total go up from nine to… ten!

On top of the fact the fragments are rare to drop from bosses there’s the issues which I have used as the subject of this entry. A race tends to have more than one person taking part, and that’s the case for this mace. To be honest I was somewhat willing to pass the fragments to anyone else in the guild who had more fragments then me, but I knew I had the most. However this didn’t stop the issue that people were actually wanting to roll for every single fragment making it less and less likely the guild ever getting the damn thing as each fragment gets rolled for and given to someone else each time. I’d probably not care so much if wasn’t for the fact I spent a stupid amount of DKP to get the first fragment and fought for them each time, perhaps I hoped the fighting would stop now that it’s “old content”. I was proven wrong.

In other news Disc Priests should be jumping for joy right now. The one thing I hated about Holy was their talent Holy Concentration which meant spirit was pretty much super awesome for them and Disc priests were left wondering whether they should respec or flood themselves with so much spirit. Well it got nerfed! And what did we get? Rapture got buffed, Focused Will got buffed, Grace got made so it can be active on more than one person, Shield got buffed… you know I could be here all day so lets just say we got totally buffed up and feel pretty darn chuffed about it.

Okay well that’s me out for a while. Sorry I haven’t posted in ages but it was Christmas, got sick (still am sick), slowly got to Level 85 and right now too fearful to heal a heroic after hearing so many horror stories. Gulp!

Hallows End

Posted in Achievements, Non-Class Specific on October 26, 2010 by PetitMew

So it’s Hallows End in Azeroth, and many people who don’t already have the achievements are working hard to complete it, specially now that the only way to get the 310% mount speed without paying 5K gold after the patch is by getting the meta achievement finished and getting your Violet Proto-Drake.

Sadly poor Chako and Léal have a long way to go. I was not too fussed before about getting the achievements before and just did them if I felt like it. Léal was never too bothered either, however we both got Brewmaster together. Things have changed, I want to get my 310% mount speed at some point but I don’t want to pay a stupid amount of gold for it. Sorry Blizz but what you are doing isn’t fair. I missed out on the Ulduar runs with my guild due to moving house and I missed out on the Icecrown hardmode mount runs they did because I became a full time parent. Of course I’ll still try out for the mounts, mainly because it’ll go towards my 100 mount achievement.

So hope you are all enjoying Hallows End and also have a good time this Halloween!
