Devilsaur, I choose you!

July 30, 2008

This is one thing about Wrath of the Lich King that has actually caught my attention.  The 51-point Beast Mastery talent: “Beast Mastery” (What an original name!)  The talent, as of right now, says:

You master the art of Beast training, teaching you the ability to tame exotic pets and increasing your total amount of Pet Skill Points by 5.

Exotic, you say?  Oooo!  How intriguing.  Even more intriguing is how little we (and the developers themselves) know about what exactly this could mean.  My first reaction was non-combat pet training!  Wouldn’t it be cool to see that little bunny hopping along the road, and instead of giving it the standard drive-by axe-murdering, you could tame it and keep it in your pocket!  Cute!

But then I thought, well, as cool as that would be, I don’t think it’s a talent-point worthy cause.  /sadface.

Well, if you haven’t heard the news, Exotic pets seem to be more along the lines of Devilsaurs and the other beast-like creatures that have been previously untamable.


So this has got me asking:  What do YOU wish was tamable? I’m going to say a couple that would be really cool are Zevras and Giraffes, I could start my own ersatz petting zoo!  Well, if only there were more stable slots…

At 4:24 this afternoon, in the heart of Netherstorm… Fergy entered the wide world of LEVEL SEVENTYISM!

It was a long couple of days, but I made it! And I’ve already managed to max out my tailoring, craft an entire Primal Mooncloth set and respec to holy!  I am determined not to be a ersatz healer!

I MUST thank a few key people that helped me – Teiya and Stangz for helping me finish some nasty group quests, Fooli for drudging through all the Mastery quests with me, Dublin for helping me aquire a few much-needed Pirmal Lifes, for Koukou, Tharaks and Tharina for donating their Primal Mooncloth cooldowns, and most of all…

BOOSTAH!  For scaring me into finally getting my booty to 70!  And also, for giving me a CRAPLOAD of Netherweave and Primals.  If it weren’t for him, I’d probably still be level 66 hanging out somewhere between Terrokar and Nagrand.

What a busy weekend!



And the battle.. begins!

July 26, 2008

Ferguson needs to get to 70.  I’ve been a little… lax in my leveling with him, but not anymore!  It took me 3 months to get from 51 to 66, and at that rate, I won’t see Kara before Wrath hits!

Of course, a little competition always helps to motivate me… so now it’s now a RACE to 70!  Boostah’s druid, Tupelo, has gone from 48-58 in 2 days, and if he gets to 70 before I do… I will never hear the end of it!

So here I go.

So much for my plans of cleaning the apartment and going shopping this weekend… I’m not leaving my desk except for the occassional trip to the fridge!

Do I think I can get to 70 by the end of the weekend?  YES!

I’m already 67 and three-quarters!  Only 2 and one-quarter levels to go!!

TUPELO, you are going DOWN!

Heck, I shouldn’t even be typing this… I gotta get back to my Mastery quests!



Gearing update!

July 23, 2008

Figures, I post about how I haven’t gotten new gear in what feels like years, and the gear just starts flowin’ in!  Maybe I should QQ more?  In the last week, I’ve gotten myself a new ring and my first two pieces of Tier 5!  That’s right, watch out healers, this hunter is going to start competing on the charts!

And, most importantly, I must not forget my new hat, complete with built in ghost wolf pet!  See, I may have been too lazy to actually tame one when I had the chance, but thanks to Don Carlos, I get to join the happy crowd of wolf owners.  Thanks to Boostah, Tigerfeet and Hemo, who joined the Shiny Hats club with me!
