Moving House...

As the title says I'm in the process of moving house so my game time has just ended and I won't be renewing it til we've moved and settled down completely which should be before the end of September.
See you soon!

Dragonwrath, Tarecgosa's Rest

I'm guessing that someone has just completed this questline as when I logged my little alt priest to level I looked up in Ogrimmar and found this

So pretty and congratulations to it's new owner

Patch 4.3

Patch 4.3 Interviews - Updated
Interviews keep hitting the web and we now know a few more things thanks to the interviews on, and!

New Raid

  • Deathwing raid will be the final raid of the expansion.
  • You will even get to ride on Deathwing's back during the fight, apparently to take him down over multiple phases.
  • The project for an Abyssal Maw is gone for the moment, the storyline wasn't convincing enough/fitting.

5-Man Instances
  • 3 new 5-man instances will be added in this patch.
  • One of the instance will be in the Caverns of Time, for the War of the Ancients

Transmogrifier (Preview below)
  • The Transmogrifier NPC, which will let you change the appearance of any armor piece on you, while retaining the stats of your current gear. (= T12 stats, but with the Tier 2 look!)
  • Players won't be able to change the appearance of their armor into another armor type or class armor set, and you might have to own the armor before you can use it to swap the appearance of your existing armor.

Void Storage
  • The Void Storage is a new type of bank where players will be able to store their old armors in order to free up space in their regular bank.
  • It will hold 100-150 items. Anything stored there will lose all gems and enchantments.

Raid Finder
  • The Raid Finder will be introduced in Patch 4.3, it will work like the Dungeon Finder.

Darkmoon Faire
  • There will be a new Darkmoon Faire island with a bunch of new activities such as "Whack-a-Gnome" "Whack-a-Gnoll" (Sorry gnomes!)

Copied from MMO Champion

As much as I like the Dungeon Finder while being casual for that "quick" heroic. It does also bring the elitist jerks to the table and the tanks with their god complex as well so this may surely bring even more idiots who stand in the fire and die a painful death all from not know the simplest of things.

I hate this...

Going afk for a drink after waiting so long and sod's law kicks in...

I gave in!

That's right I gave in and I ended up making another alt a few days ago. This time it's a shadow/holy priest. She's just got to level 37 right now. Somehow I managed to pick up nearly no wool cloth to help with levelling tailoring and it costs 20g in the AH for a stack of 20, WTF people?! And of course I made this on the opposite faction side to Darkmoon Faire so I have no money to help -.-

I've just started the dungeon spamming now 10 minutes in the queue as a healer... bad times

Oh if anyone happens to go to Darkmoon Faire server EU and see a female blood elf (yes I do realise I put in my last post about an undead priest) called Míssi with the weird i say hi or give me a wave!

Had a group in Scarlet Monastery earlier on, 3 Tabards of the Scarlet Crusade drop and same guy wins them all... one lucky yet also selfish bastard as he wouldn't pass any of them around for rolls. I spent ages farming that on my main back in wrath for it never to drop for me and now 3, FML.

Now coming up to 15 minutes in queue as a healer. Seems tanks don't like to queue at low level. Inc more random rubbish then.

Went into Serpentshrine Caverns with a couple of guildies that were in there for collecting the tier and I have to say 1 it now sucks you can move with the Tainted Core, that ruined the whole spamming of the macro (which I still have!)

/use Tainted Core
/s %t, catch the tainted core!
/script SendChatMessage("!!! YOU HAVE THE CORE !!!", "WHISPER", "Common", UnitName("target"))

The best macro I ever had was one I used on the mages in our guild when we they were about to make cookies before the raid started

/inserts coin into %t and taps her foot, Where are my biscuits?!

20 minutes... Wakey wakey tanks!

Ok so I think I've rambled and bored you all enough and fingers cross a random will appear very shortly

Old Screenshot number 1

So looking through all my old screenies I took while playing WoW, I found one of my old undead priest (who I turned blood elf stupidly)

I want an undead priest again :(

20 Days of WoW Blogging Challenge: Day 9

Day 9: Your first blog post

Well I wasn't too sure when I first made this blog what to do for that entry. In the end I decided just on a simple introduction post (which can be found here <click)

So this isn't World of Warcraft related but it's important non the less.
Last night I was pretty much glued to the TV watching these failures of mankind destroy part of London for some fun and games. It's pathetic. Worse is when reading Twitter, people are actually bragging about the loot they got. Such a sad day for it to come to this because of a bunch of sad degenerates. Put these guys in the army and see if they are as hard as they say they are.

20 Days of WoW Blogging Challenge: Day 8

Day 8: 10 things we don't know about you

I will NEVER own or level and Dwarf of any sort, no matter if they give anything that is dwarves only, NEVER!

I actually love doing the ironing, I find something really relaxing about doing it.

I some how got talked into making a character on Darkmoon Faire by my real life friends. They have now all moved to a new server or re rolled, leaving me by myself here though I still have a character on Ragnaros where they are now, but I do miss them being with me.

I am a really shy person

I can speak French fluently as I used to live there when I was younger for 3 years but my written is awful.

I put Icarly on for my little girl to watch but I love it myself

My biggest fear is being alone

I have never had a hangover in my many years of drinking

I managed to talk my sister into doing some sort of gymnastic of the bed when we was a lot younger and she now has a scar in the middle of her forehead that still very visible even nearly 15 years later, I am a nice big sister honest!

I love playing the healing character, if there is one to play, I'll play. While playing Wow I've played a Restoration Shaman, Holy Paladin, Restoration Druid and a Discipline/Holy Priest. Even while trying other games like Rift I've picked a Cleric and I think it was Sentinel (?) to try.

20 Days of WoW Blogging Challenge: Day 7

Day 7: The reason behind your blogs name

It's kinda boring really, I choose this name just because purple being the colour of items at the highest reward in World of Warcraft, and well to me I called them shinyz so it seemed to apply to me easily :D
See said boring ^^

Trip into Firelands

So Friday night, I took a trip into Firelands with my guild in their alt/social run. We killed Beth'tilac, Shannox and Baleroc. I was lucky being the only shaman there too and I got [Gatekeeper's Embrace] and also [Thoracic Flame Kilt]. This was my first experience of a proper raid since Cataclysm got launched as I hadn't really had any time for it. I quite enjoyed the fights, I though the Beth'tilac was quite a fun fight. Though as well I had still a few heroic blue items from having really, really unlucky runs in both Zul'Gurub and Zul'Aman runs where the items I wanted have either not dropped or when they have it's been need by an Enhancement Shaman for his Off spec -.-
Finally moved on to the next set of the Motlen Front dailies, I decided to recruit the Druids for the time being and after hanging around Sethria's Roost for ages I finally got the Have... Have We Met? after sat waiting around for Hemet Nesingwary to show his face. Also I got Gang War thanks to a friend who was around the area at the same time. I managed to get killed by the Hunter Challenge Spider that is in the Molten Front, Kirix

I must admit for a hunter's pet it's pretty awesome so I can't wait to get my hunter higher to attempt trying some of the challenges they have. She's only just got to 41 but for some reason the Worgen-ness about her that I thought was amazing to begin with is now really starting to annoy me... maybe I'll race change her to a Night Elf in the end (more likely that I will end up doing so) but I'll put up with it for now.
