Series 7 of World of Warcraft action figures is coming. I’m excited, and my wallet is getting scared.
Why? They finally made a Human Paladin with the only tier armor I’ve ever loved – Judgement. Woohoo! Just added it to my wishlist. :p
I think this will be one of the non-premium figures (at least from Kotaku’s description, the only figure name that seems pally-like is listed as a regular figure), but with my luck, and considering that this figure seems a lot more detailed than the other four in the set, it will be around 50 euros instead of 20-30. Let’s hope not…
EDIT: Forgotten Planet provides! It’s listed as costing £15.99, so it seems to be indeed a regular figure. The downside? It’s only out after my birthday. Ah well.
I’ve recently renewed my World of Warcraft account. I am now very casually playing a male Blood Elf Paladin, so I can see the other side of old Azeroth before it’s changed in the new expansion, Cataclysm.
The plan right now is to level him to 60 so I see it all. Then, if I’m still not sick of him, I’m planning on leveling him to the cap, so I have a PvP character.
Why don’t I do that with my Alliance characters? Although I occasionally PvP, it’s more than clear to me that the Alliance sucks as much as a black hole in my Battlegroup. It doesn’t really matter if one or two people know how to play, and want to win. The general Alliance attitude is to shrug and content themselves with the one mark and little honour they get per battleground.
I dislike that. I want to play with people who also want to win and make an effort in that direction.
So far, I’m at level 20, having just gotten my mount after ‘talking to a man about a horse’. I’ve done most of the quests in the BElf starting area and decided to go see Silverpine Forest and start alternating between those two areas. I was getting fed up of th BElf area, and am hoping that doing some quests in another zone for a level or two will help.
An interesting thing I’ve noticed is the lack of idiot players. Sure, I’ve seen a couple of them on General Chat, but those were an exception. So far, all the people I’ve grouped with (not many, as I’m preferring to play solo) have been polite. I wasn’t expecting that, so it’s been a pleasent surprise.
The decision to play solo has a downside: I wanted to check out the Horde side’s instances I don’t know – Ragefire Chasm and Wailing Caverns. I’m thinking of just leveling a bit more and soloing them for the sightseeing experience. It’s not an optimal solution, but it may be the best one for me at the moment.
So far, I’ve been enjoying this Horde visitor experience. Let’s see if I don’t get sick of it half way. Considering it’s the first time I get an alt to a level that high in two or three years, I may indeed get a PvP character at the level cap.
To be honest, considering my memories of the lowbie areas are fuzzy, and the TBC and Northrend areas are recent memories, I’m guessing those will be the most boring, repetitive to do (even with the Horde/Alliance differences, there are many common places). My aim, will very likely be to leave the old world at level 62 or 63, so I can skip some TBC areas, which are the ones I find less enjoyable, while being slightly above the recommended level so I can do the quests faster and still get XP at a decent rate.
Now excuse me while I go kill some Night Elf scum. :p
I’m sleepy as hell today,and not just because it’s Monday. Busy weekend was busy. And sleep was very little. We had a friend’s birthday party, we chose the wedding rings and gave the initial payment for them, we sorted some more invitations (just needing to be sent) and so forth.
And to finish off a busy weekend, on WoW we finally finished Naxxramas 10 man. Naxx 25 was already cleared by us a few weeks back, in cooperation with another guild, but we’ve always wanted to ‘solo’ 10 man as a guild and yesterday evening, in about 3 and a half hours we finally cleared it from begining to end. We one-shotted all bosses except Kel’Thuzad and I really liked the fast paced run we had (made it a lot less boring than runs have usually been), and the fact that I was helping out a bit more than usual on some bosses with stuff other than pew pew since we had a recent level 80 Death Knight tank with us. On Patchwerk, I Misdirected on him any time I could, since our better geared MT was doing more threat than him, on Gluth the kiting/trapping went well, though most the time I didn’t really need to MD him, since he was getting all adds nicely (seems we got ourselves a nice new tank ).
Thaddius, the annoying boss that people kill themselves on over and over (he’s not rocket science, peeps!), was one-shotted and dropped a frakking helm for me. I was already giving up on getting a helm, since NONE of the 25 man helms have ever dropped in the months we’ve been doing the instance, and had completely forgotten all about Thaddius’ helm. It was a pleasent surprise. But of course I’d really prefer either tier 7.5 or the one from Malygos 25. Will bid on them if I can.
With the extra badges I got, I also finally got my Mirror of Truth trinket, which I should have for ages now, if I’d only not bought the belt which was replaced a whole three or four days later. These two upgrades were the cherry on top of a very nice raiding night. The only down side of it was some guild drama, which sadly ended with a nice guy and player leaving the guild in a rushed/silly decision because he didn’t get into the raid. I hope he has fun in his new guild. So far he’s been the only guildquit-on-a-whim guy I’ll actually miss. Unlike the others he was generally nice, not whining or making passive-aggressive comments, which is, in my opinion, a lot more important than being a good player. I really didn’t expect the exit. Ah well. Good luck to him.
Tonight we’re going to try 10-man Eye of Eternity. I hope we kill him, and I especially hope we can kill him FAST because I am really sleepy and want to go to bed not too late. We’ll see.
Wish me dead evil dragons.
