General

To Pieces..

One small week, ive been away on holidays, and within that week several things happened. We lost many of our recruits to the 25 man team Eden, our GM decided he wanted to focus on RL more than WoW, and several others decided enough was enough. So now things are falling apart pretty much. Some have been cancelling their subscription, some taking breaks, some will transfer and some will delete their characters. What about me then? Which one of those boxes willi fit into? Who knows. Im giving up on Eden and have explained why, to the other RL's, and anything else than that is uncertain atm. All the other assisting RL's seem to join me in the desicion to let things go, so i dont think there's any hate at least. In this writing moment, i dont know when my subscription will run out. I also dont know if i will let it continue or if i see it more fitting to just cancel it. Ive played this game for nearly five years, seen most things, done most things.. Been on top, been casual, rocked PvE...

Same battlegroup = tweak to you win!

Well, someone had to cheer me up.. So we worked hard to get into the same group. Worked hard!!! :D

Fan-fucking-tastic. OH, language?! Sorry.

Those of you who have known me (in-game) for a while, know that i have been slightly obsessed with the mount from Stratholme. Also, you know that this obsession started early. Very early. Probably like 3 years ago or something, i cant remember. But during TBC at some point at least. I couldnt solo at first, so had to go there with a friend, and ofc this limited effective farm time. Luckily i had friends who actually bothered to waste some time on this, so we managed to kill the guy quite often in periods. Also, the more gear i got, the "easier" i could solo. Read easy as in "barely doable" and it took forever. Forever, i tell ye. Also you got to remember that balance druid wasnt always as viable as they are today. Now, people wont question you as a boomkin, but back then, people almost took you for riding the loco-train if you had a balance spec. Especially in raids. Anyway, i mostly had the same helpful solo things that i have today (barkskin, tree, hots), and the trees could dish...

HOLLY MOLLY LOLLY!!!!

Whaddyaknow?? A blog post! Damn, has been a good while since the last one. I just hit the blog wall, or something like that. So whats happened since the last time i gave you sweet, sweet updates? I was horde, then i was ally nelf, and now im ally worgen. Hopping servers trying to find a guild i can settle in, and hopefully ive found it now. The server progress is awful compared to the other realms ive been on (sorry guys, it really is), but tradechat is readable and people are in general much nicer here! I liked to be able to pug anything, hardmode or not, but then again, i like nice people too. My guild is now Jane Doe on Terokkar EU, and im in a raid group called Mutilate. Thats right, this guild has several raid teams, like guilds within the guild! Also with this many members we level quickly and there's someting for everyone, which is good. Hmm, well.. Ill see if i maybe start to update this blog more regularely again. Probably down to 0 readers now too, so just have to wait ...

Summer Break

Okay, im gonna take a break from the blog now, as im not active in WoW for the time being. I log for raids and thats is. Maybe ill take up some posting on the IRL blog again for now, you can visit it here. I hope i get my WoW interest back, especially with Cataclysm! One can only hope! :)

Dragons, rawr!

The new raid instance was released when i was on holiday, but since we only raid twice a week the guild hadnt done it yet when i came back. On monday we went there after LK and it only took us a few tries to get a kill. The fight isnt too bad imo. Got the classical dragon shiz, dont find yourself stuck up his ass or nostrils, move out of fire and run away when bad stuff happens. And of course it includes portals as the Sartharion encounter. Have seen a few dragons in WoW by now, and i think this is around the middle of my Dragon Coolness Scale. 1. Kalecgos2. Felmyst3. Sartharion3. Halion4. Nightbane5. Onyxia6. Malygos7. SindragosaMalygos was annoying. Really annoying. Booo! Kalecgos was cool, and Felmyst too! Sindragosa is awfully boring. Even on heroic its turning my brain into mush, gah, how i hate her!!Maybe i forgot some dragons now, but well, so be it. Also the pit lords are dragon-ish, but only in looks!Nice kill on the last one, right?? :D Dragons, either you love them or hat...

Back on Track (i hope)!

Things have been rather silent lately, and not all of it was due to me entering the huge blog desert that sucks your blog energy away. I was tired of the game, of myself, of everything, and i felt i had nothing to blog about really. Of course i did have stuff i could write about, but i just didnt care. I wanted to quit raiding because it drained me and left me in a bad mood, but in the end of the day i do like to raid, and i do like this guild, so i guess a couple of morons cant take that away from me! But, the absence wasnt only boredom, ive been on holiday as well. London, Glastonbury, London, Cambridge, London. Phew! Have been a good two weeks, but now im ready for my own bed, my computer, WoW and everything else that is home to me. Hopefully this have given me a fresh start when it comes to the blog, as i was so sad i didnt update more frequently lately. I love this blog, so i wont give it up. Also, there are so many interesting new things incoming to the game, so there shoul...

Something, something

I have nothing to write about, but wanted to just make an update. So eh, yes. Here it is. Lock was in ICC10 yesterday, with blues and 1 heirloom. Pushed shit dps, like really shit. And no cloth dropped at all. I mean hello, nothing at all?? Ive been busy with guests the whole week so havent had time to play much. And also, theres raid, raid and raid. Im so very tired of it and i will cut down on a few things soon. Today its exactly one week til im leaving, and then im away for 2 weeks holiday. After that, LK 10 HC better die, else i have to just face that i wont see that fight end well. No energy left for ICC25 after all the 10 mans. 10 mans are supposed to be fun, but it havent been in ages. The alt run yesterday was, even though we wiped a fair bit. It was all okay, since it was alts.Anyway, need to run for work now, take care all!

Did it die..?

Guess it didnt. The blog i mean. It was on its way to a slow death, but that would admittedly be quite sad. So what have i been doing lately?Christalynn, my former baby warlock is now a fully grown warlock. Even got some epics. Not many, not imba ones, but its epics. Hello, epics? She has two specs, demo and destro, and even though people claim destro to be easier, i prefer demo. Im a bad demon, yeah!Guild is working on Sindragosa 25H atm, best try was 16% but then we lost focus and in the end had to kill her normal and move on. Hope she's going down next week! Then it would only be PP left (not counting LK really). The 10 mans only have LK-H left, and i think he will go down soon enough. Sadly ive been quite busy IRL so i couldnt come friday and yesterday. And not tonight. And not friday. Suuuucks!And soon, im off to England for 2 weeks, so then bai raiding for a bit. Gonna lose all my attendance, boo.Anyway. Hope i can find some motivation to start updating more often again. Until...

Update

So, im still banging my head against the wall when it comes to blog updates. No energy left for blogging, and the sad part is that i dont even feel like i can read other blogs either. I watch my feeder and the mini-feed within blogg.no, and i see topics that seems interesting, but i just cannot get myself to click the links and actually read them.Bummed.Can at least throw in an update on guild progress. We're working on Lady Deathwisper heroic on 25-man, and LK heroic on 10-man. Most of us 10-man crew members have now got their mounts, so thats cool! Several got it yesterday, and me and two others got it today. Its a pretty cool mount, i have to admit.I was in London this weekend, as some of you might know, and the trip was nice. I got terribly sunburned, rented a rowing boat in Hyde Park, strolled around British Museum alone and drak lots of blended caramel frappuchinos from Starbucks. Also, we went to Rainforest Cafe (typical family place where kids have their birthday parties etc...

Frustrating!

Oh how frustrated you can get when being in a raid that doesnt really work out well. Feels like there's been some issues here and there lately, and it makes me sit behind my screen feeling really sour and grumpy. I want to shout and yell on vent, and i dont even bother to pretend i like people. Being polite? Why should i, when people play like they have never set foot in a raid before. Sigh. Raid experience isnt something you buy on ebay or get from raiding ICC only. And ears, they are placed on your heads for a reason. To let sound flow into your head, transmit sounds to something your brain recognizes as meaningful sentences, and then use those words to expand your sense of what (and what not) to do.Im not really motivated enough to blog lately, have been like this for a little while now. I hope it comes back, as i like to blog, but i just dont have any ideas atm. And i cba to write a blog post about nothing, just to write one, sort of.Ah well. Tomorrow is WoW-free. Only beer and ...

Blog Desert

That's what i call it when the blogging dries up for a little while. I have an old friend sneaking up on me, work starts to wear on me, and im stressing with other stuff as well. The time just seem to run away! At least i got my alt up one more level yesterday, but she's also been stuck for a while now. I dont do anything at all on my main except raids, feels like there's not enough time. There are time of course, but i spend it sleeping mostly. Work, come home, sleep, raid, sleep, rinse and repeat.Im 20 days away from payday and im broke. Exellent! Ok, this picture had nothing to do with anything, i just added some random picture because it would make the post look better! Tonight is raid night. As we tried Saurfang heroic thursday (i wanted to kill myself slowly), i dont think there will be any progress stuff tonight. So i just hope for a swift, painless raid that ends early. Now that would've been sweet! Also i got the day off work tomorrow, yay!

Distraction.. Ooooh, shinies!!!

Im probably the worst ever at getting distracted. Today i planned to do.. well, to be honest i didnt plan to do anything after work really, but what i did plan (as i plan every day), was play WoW! But then when i got in, i was wet and my hair had gotten funny curls from being out in the rain. I listened to the sound of the raindrops outside, and even though i knew my alt needed some love, i needed to love myself first. Mmmmm, warm fluffy bed. Mmmm, sleeeeep.So, i woke up a couple of hours later and thought "yeah, now i need to play WoW". Right. First i stalked various blogs. Then i stalked various twitter profiles. Then i thought "must make dinner before raid". Then i stayed at twitter some more. Er, so now my food is in the pot, my raid is on, and i am not ready for anything. Grrrreat!Also, one of the things i wanted to write about soon are other WoW blogs. Most of them seem to use wordpress, either standalone or ehm the other wordpress one (yeah, im clueless here), and me, i feel ...

Warlocks Are Forever

I have always had a thing for warlocks. Always. My first alt was a warlock, as far as i can remember, and a human one too. Leylah she was called, quite the pretty girl really. Now she's been following me from Lightbringer to Dragonblight and back to Lightbringer, dressed in fancy clothes, stuck at level 15 forever. Leylah is now a bank slut. I kinda liked her, but she had to stay at Lightbringer as i was tired of transfering her around. I mean, transfering a bank alt, thats pretty much waste of beer money!Then we had Zidana. She was a butt-ugly undead. In fact, she still is a butt-ugly undead. Not really ugly, but i made her face a bit weird, and regretted it ever since. This one made it to level 42, quite the achievement! But then i got tired of being horde on that server, and well, may she rest in peace. Unbelievable that she hasnt been kicked from the guild shes in, after not being properly played the past year or two.I still wanted a warlock, even after giving up two in the past...

Comments - Need or Greed?

Lately ive registered on this WoW Blog community forum. Its a place where WoW bloggers gather their forces, discuss stuff and have a topic to write about every week. This week (only one day left, im a bit late), the topic spins around comments, and how they influence your writing. You can read the original post here, and the blog of the person suggesting the theme here. Why do we blog? Why do we update our status on facebook? Why do we twitter? Why do you do all of this instead of just writing in a pink plush diary IRL? Communication. Diaries never speak back, and they certainly dont comment on whatever you write about your days. Dear Diary. Today at school i finally dared to ask Mike if he wanted to come over to my place with his laptop this saturday, so we could do some PvP together. He declined, and it was really humiliating. But, when we were about to go home, he came around and said we could meet on vent instead, as it was a bit less scary. I got really happy. Maybe hes interes...

I <3 Druids

Well, this didnt come as a big suprise now, did it? I dont have any good ideas for a post right now, so decided i'd share my my love for druids instead. Playing one for more than 3 years does something with you. As Phee once said "how cool would it be to be a druid irl". Yeah, i would totally love to just able to teleport to Moonglade when im tired of the city life. Cast a quick decurse when im hungover, starfire anyone who gets in my way. Those sort of things. Feral, Resto, Balance. I love them all! Gathered a few druid pics that i like. Last one is my druid family, original pic can be found on here. Random druid dancing in Moonglade. Im the ally one. I miss it! :(Druids > Omen!No idea why i took this. Its from SFK, im sitting in a corner. On a fire thing. Hot bum!Alliance bear dancing in front of RFK in Orgrimmar. Fun times :DHappy family of druids! Lets all hold hands and sing Kumbayah!And yeah, ill come up with a better idea til next time im making a post! ;)

To Tree Or Not To Tree..?

In the Cataclysm info released, it was stated that resto druid would be relesed from permantent tree form duty. Why they chosed this, while the other forms remains, im not 100% sure of, but what i do know is that there has been a lot of mixed emotions about it.Some say the tree form stinks. That it looks awful and have bad animations. I think it looks cute, and i have to say the horde moonkin is worse, and got even less animations. Still, we are druids. We shapeshift. Its our thing, sort of. Will be a bit different for worgens, but for the rest, we're used to looking like things in raids, and not as elves or cows. Or trolls, soon enough.On one hand, i like the shapeshifting, cus in my opinion i feel like it defines me as a druid, and especially as a moonkin since level 40. Im used to this fat, hamster-bottom creature. It got its own charm, so to speak. Trees cant cast offensive spells while shapeshifted, which can be a bit lame. But i cant cast heals as boomkin, and shadow priests c...

Bag Addons

Beca is doing a little mashup on addons lately, and today she wrote about bag addons. Since im the worlds biggest fan of ArkInventory (and dislike OneBag), i had to make a counter post. This is the Bag Battle, rawr!OneBag creates, suprisingly enough, one bag for all of your items. And then they just float around there like jellyfish in the open ocean. Items get a border that points at their rarity, and you can search for items in the sea of jellyfish. I tried this and nearly got an epileptic seizure immediately. So much mess! Im a woman of order, so this didnt fit me at all. Another friend of mine pointed out that you could search items, so you didnt need to organize them, but hello, i cant remember the names on every item i have! If you do remember, this addon is sufficient though. Also, she lists OneBank and BankItems to go with this addon, for the whole bag package.But here's the thing from my point of view. Why go with 3 different addons when you only need one? And why go with j...

Easter + Random Stuff

Since its easter, the updates might be a bit slow during the holidays. Not that im going to a big fat greek party or anything (like half of the guild), but im just feeling lazy the few days i have off work. That would be tomorrow and saturday, so nothing to write home about, but still!Got my plushies delivered on my door yesterday, and they are adorable IRL. Also, the Horde one is really cute in-game, while the Alliance one seems a bit depressed. Yes, depressed, not depressing, as stated earlier!And this is me, being all happy-cat after getting them!But seriously, i make myself sound more and more wack by the hour. I really need to not present myself as Lunaire, Crazy Cat Woman. So the next post will be all pet-free, how about that? Nor will it contain anything on Lady Gaga. Hah, someone was relieved now. On both notes!Can mention that MMO reports that the Icecrown buff now has increased to 10%, but people most likely have noticed themselves. Still no update on us vs. Lich King, as ...

Argh!!

So many idiots in this game, it pisses me off! Been trying to get the Reign of the Dead for ages now, but either it never drops, or some nubcake wins it if it does, or the pug fail before Anub'arak is dead. Would prefer the heroic version, but thats never gonna happen. Guild doesnt want to go, and pugging that without the achievement is impossible. So, this pug i was in just now started out well, we had some half shitty healers, but dps was really good, and people were decently geared. We nearly wiped on Twin Val'kyrs due to people not managing to switch auras in time, but they died with 6-7 people left alive. But, before we got there, we lost people on every boss. Some went emo because they didnt win a roll, some nerdraged because someone else was a mongo, some just left after they didnt get the loot dropping off the boss they wanted, and some left when we wiped on Anub'arak. And we wiped horribly there. Horribly! Ive never seen such a bad attempt before in my life! Really sucks wh...

The Return of the Tree!

Once upon a time, i went resto. Was back in Karazhan and Gruul's Lair, and it was only briefly. Like a quick summer flirt, it was, and like all summer flirts, it ended quickly too. I thought about it now and then, wondering what it would be like to heal again, but again like the summer flirt, you can think about it at times, but it wont bring those days back.Luckily, here comes the part thats not flirty. I can bring the tree back. And in fact i just did. For the first time in what feels like forever, i took away one of my balance specs and dived into the restoration tree! I dont really have gear for it, as all my gear, gems and enchants are optimized for turkey lazor pew pew, but i wanted to give it a shot. I read this guide, chosed this spec (as im low on haste), and glyphed on advice from my favourite tree: Numen-Phee <3 It even rhymed, not bad.Well, i wanted to see if i could manage to heal something simple like a heroic, so i signed up for the daily one, and waited patiently....

Bank Trash

Ive always wondered what others keep in their banks. I wonder if they keep their old gear to remince about good old days, or if they have some RP sets, or maybe some event items they pull out for fun now and then. Maybe people keep consumables and gems and such? Or just three or more different gear sets, one for each specc plus PvP? Am i weird with my bank shit? Well, i dont know. What i do know, is that i probably have the most useful useless item of all times, which is Light of Elune. Its from some lowbie quest i did ages ago. In Ashenvale, alliance side. Ive had it since level 20 or something, in other words, for like three years. And still havent used it! Never found that perfect moment, you know. I dream of one day popping this holy potion and solo the last HP of a boss while being the only one still alive. Ahh, epic moments!But lets be honest here, guys. Its never gonna happen. Its gonna rot in my bank for all eternity! Together with my RP clothes for all occasions, my old TBC...

For Your Eyes Only (an introduction)

The good thing about the english language is ofc that you can be both you and you. So you get it, right? Ehehe, thought so. I've decided to split up my original blog because i didnt feel like a mix of both IRL and WoW and both norwegian and english, all in the same blog, fitted very well. Long sentence was long. Anyway, that means that all the WoW related stuff will go here, and i'll try to keep the IRL buzz on a minimum. If people show a stalkerish interest in me and my IRL, it will please to here that i will try to make an effort to translate posts on IRL blog, so that they can have some english summary in the end of the post (unless i for some reason chose to write the whole thing in english). Which can happen from time to time.Well. I can start with introducing myself, as that seems like a decent thing to do. Most people who read this post probably do know these things already, but what the heck.Name: LunaireRealm: Twisting NetherFaction: HordeRace and class: Tauren DruidSpec: B...
