Finished my SCI275 final and I’m gonna write my ETH125 final today….alll except for the bit with the reference I’m missing.  I hope to be back to sewing or something soon. 

On a side note, Sam reupped his wow account, and I’m a little jealous.  He’s not on his 80’s, Ill prolly join him arount the time cata comes out.  No raiding though; that’s a time sink and a half!

ETA: Finished writing my ETH125 final.  now I just need to revise and grammer check them.  I can do that in one week without much trouble.

OK, Icecrown is fun.  Ran it 10 man last week and roflpwned. 

Marrowgar-  annoying.   He spiked me 3 times in a row.   2nd time I died in a fire right after I was freed.  I got a Battle Res, healed myself and got….you guessed it, spiked again!  4 times total that fight!  I was so glad we were running 3 healers instead of the 2 we run in TOC.   Otherwise not so bad once the tanks get all coordinated.  Got the bone spike achievement.

Deathwhisper- mostly a FOL spam fight.  Gotta watch out for the empowered flavored adds though.  They’ll take a tank down quick.  This seems more a fight of DPS coordination.  Casters hit the boss the whole add phase unless a magic only add is up.   Melee burn down shields and kill the melee only adds.  Hybrid flavored DPS like enh shammys, DKs and hunters kinda have it hard.

Gunship- OMG fun!  Any fight that lets you strap rockets to your back can’t be all bad.  stay outta rocket strikes and your gold!

Saurfang- I got to DPS this  😀   Seems like the best way to handle this in 10 man is to pile on as much DPS as possible and  burn him before he has a chance to put up his debuffs, so 2 healers here.  The adds we split between the ranged and melee.  One add is kited and the other chain stunned.  Got the timed kill achievement. 

I decided to level a hordie on Shadow Council.  I rolled an orc rogue  named Glim.  Gotta say I like the racials.  I’ve run a dungeon every day Ive been able to get on for long enough.  Each time it took less than five minutes to put the group together!  I’m runnin dungeons that I nearly forgot existed, BFD anyone?

School is going well, I’m on my 3rd week of classes, though it is a little crazy during the holiday season.  Work is insanely busy, new patch content is fun, I need to do my christmas shopping, and I need some sleep!  Luckily, I get a couple weeks off of school, from the 21st till the 3rd of January.   That’ll help, and work will settle down after Christmas.

Twin Valkyrs (TOGC25) have been crushed under Repentence’s boot.  Rumor had it that they were looking very pale and scared before the raid. 

Rumor has it that 3.3 comes out tomorrow, and Im glad to say we’ll see it after at least giving Anub’arac a crack.  Here he is….Ohhhhhhhh scary.

Oh my, its been busy.  I’ll get the wow news out of the way first.  I got my lil gnome rogue, Elly, to 80.  She was my first toon, ya know, and while Im probably never going to run her seriously, I am very attached to her all the same.  She has the cutest little animations!  On the raiding front, we are beating our heads on TOGC 25 Twin Valkyrs.  We are getting close  though and I fully expect them to go down soon.  On other raiding fronts, Ren picked up the twilight vanquisher title last week for lols.  It beats the jenkins title anyway.

On the RL front, we have our christmas tree up and a pretty new wreath on the door.  When we moved, last January, it was a mess.  We ended up leaving all our ornaments at the old house.  It’s a shame, because there were some lovely ones with sentimental value, but we were just so glad to be out of there that going back more than absolutely necessary never crossed our mind.  This year well just start collecting some nice new ornaments that will hopefully give us good memories in the future.

Kiddo is doing reasonably well in school.  He likes his class, but doesnt like his homework at all.   Were gearing up for the food drive at scouts next week and the week after that will be the Christmas Party!

On the knitting front, Im working on the sleeves of my sweater.  Sleeves slow me down because Im using 2 circulars instead of just one.  So tedious!

On a side note…Mortigan the Lock’s blog disappeared.  Hope he returns, he was a funny guy, even if he was undead.

Whenever Ren dances I hear this:

That is all.

I love raids.  Its cool to have 9 or 24 other people working together to get something done.    I hate raids….people bein snippy and DRAMA!

Last night we worked in TOGC 25.  For some reason, this week, there are some issues with beasts.  Tempers flare a lil, but its no real big deal.  We have a cranky warrior tank (hes normally so nice, but we all have off days) and people that dont move for the yeti fast enough.  I admit, I didnt get out fast enough one time.  Beaten by the pillar boss   😦   

We decide to go to Uld instead and work on a few hardmodes.  We saved a lockout at the keepers just for this.  We start on Hodir.  Right after the pull,  threat flys around a lil and a couple DPS die.  The guy that pulled first was the BF of the tank (our bear, not our warrior tank).  We miss the achievement by seconds. 

Soon as Hodir dies, Miss Bear goes a bit ballistic over vent at her BF….who is in the same room as her.  She goes afk after a min and we all collect outside Thorim…and wait.   The BF comes with us and while we have our thumbs up our collective rear ends, he suddenly rocket boots into the colleseum and logs.   Im guessin his comp got hit/ unplugged.  This seems to happen when they fight.  This is the second time in a couple months, so idk whats gonna happen. 

After this the RL ninja logs….wth.  If the raid is over, say somethin.  Hearthing and logging like that just seems so….puggish 

Next 25 is Sunday, I hear we’re using our pally, warrior, and other bear tank….Ill christen him Mr Bear for the sake of the post.  But then, I think Miss Bear might be outta town on Sun…I know she’ll be gone tonight and Sat.  Either way, Im hoping for a smooth run. 

On a completely unrelated note:  Finished my first orientation class, yay!
