Only 2 more days until everyone rushes off to the island of Pandaria. (Those poor pandas won't know what hit 'em.) I think most of my characters are ready, I still need to clean out a few banks (including Burning Valor's guild bank, yeesh what a mess >.<), but most everyone has good enough gear to make the first bit of questing easier. I don't have as much gold on most of them as I had wanted, but it shouldn't be too hard to save up while questing and stuff. Having to shell out 10k for Talia's decoder ring didn't help much... (Yes, Talia finally got to pick Hagara's pocket. Getting things at the last minute is kind of a thing for me, apparently...)

My tentative leveling plan is going to be Kel (of course), then probably Windstar, Talia, and Rynia. Although Kel being first is the only one that's set in stone. My second account won't even be upgraded to MoP for a few days to a week, but definitely getting Kal and Jahira leveled once that's taken care of. As far as my hordies go, I will probably just be leveling them when I get bored or when my Alliance friends aren't on, which happens a lot during the day. Not very surprising since most of them are Pacific time zone, though. I am planning on making a pandaren monk (getting the new class and race all in one toon :D), but it's not going to be a 'main' character, so I'm going not going to try to rush it up to max. I don't want to deal with the huge starting rush, and I want to actually learn and enjoy things with it. So my monk leveling is going to fit the character personality I've planned, taking things slow, relaxed, and easy.

And now I'm going to show off a bit. A lot of my game time lately has been spent on getting the characters I'm playing the most transmogged, and here is some of the results:



BWL is annoying to get into, but at least all this stuff dropped relatively quickly \o/

And Caderly-
Handsome fella, ain't he?

I thought I had more screenshots, but apparently I've misplaced them. Oh well! I guess Kel, Jahira, Talia, and Rynia get their own post later. Along with Bearkat, and maybe I'll actually finish Taarren's set soon. If her stuff would actually, you know, drop... :P

That's enough rambling for now, I think. I have a rogue that needs new daggers >.>  And possibly attempt one last raid finder on a couple toons. And run Windstar through the scenario a couple more times for that stupid polearm which has dropped for two other characters... who can't/won't use it. -_-

Keepin' Busy

Haven't posted anything for a while, so I guess an update is due, huh? Well, for starters, since the 5.something patch has finally come out, I went and uninstalled the beta from my computer. I hadn't been doing much on it lately, with my lag problems and all, and I figured live stuff would keep me occupied. On that note, Talia, Jahira, Caderly, and Kalenedral are all raid-finder geared by now. Maxwill and Rynia aren't, but I haven't been playing on them much, so it doesn't bother me.

Speaking of Max... Sis has been camping for the blue version of Madexx, and I've been keeping an eye out for her whenever I happen to be in Uldum. So when I was tinkering on my shaman Taarren, I did a quick fly-by to check. He was red, not blue, so just for kicks I switched over to Max, found him again, and boom new pet. Rust says "Hi."

Yes, Max still has his polearm equipped. Don't worry, I switched it for his crossbow right after the screenshot.

And now back to Taarren, I've been playing her again since the patch, and last night she finally joined my level-85 crew.

She's been a load of fun, now that I have less to keep track of with totems and stuff. I think I'm probably switching her 'main' spec from enhancement to elemental for Mists, especially with the new spec-related quest rewards that Blizzard is doing. The only issue I've been having with her is the fact that her elemental gear was noticeably lower than her enhancmemt set. After getting her Firelands starting stuff and Thrall's quest chain done, her gear is much more balanced now, though. I'm looking forward to starting on heroics, and I've started collecting the T2 look-alike set for her transmog.

And now a short update on a more serious note... The main reason I haven't been posting much lately is because my depression problems have been hitting me really hard lately. Between issues at work, certain things going on with my family, and a crapton of other stupid little things, there just hasn't been much to be happy about, outside of Azeroth. And it's really hard to be interested in blogging when all I want to do is hide from the world. My sister, WoW, and a very good friend have been a big help in not letting everything get too bad, and I'm starting to feel a bit better, but there probably won't be much changing as far as blogging goes. When I have something that I think is worth sharing, I'll share it, but I don't want to chase people away with "FML" type posts, because seriously, who would actually want to read about that?

So, anyways, that's about it for now. /Waves

P.S.- Socks the chair-stealer says "Hi"
