First off, I have to apologize for being sort of MIA here on the blog. I have good excuses, I swear! I was up in San Francisco for a work trip for much of the week, then I spent most of Friday night watching the Olympic opening ceremonies. But I did get plenty of playtime in last night, and here and there throughout the week. You can see by my activity feed that I’ve been a busy cow! Moooooo.
I’ve been mostly doing a lot of heroic 5-mans, trying to gear up through JP and experience all of the dungeons before MoP releases. As a result, I got a few new pieces of heroic dropped gear and spent some Justice Points on the Obsidian Armorweave Tunic. Last night I also spent the slowly-earned Valor Points on the Woundlicker Cover so that I can finally be epic in my back slot. I also did End Time for the first time and was blown away by how difficult the bosses were, despite not having any wipes. I did a heroic SFK last night and a few weeks ago I wiped over and over again, but last night I didn’t let a single person die and we even got the Pardon Denied achievement. Thanks to people on Twitter who helped me out with some gem and gear strategies! I now have my gear all gemmed and a few enchants, and I feel like I’m doing better than before. I also did my first ‘event’ with my new guildies, which was a 5 man trip into Zul’Aman, where I played my kitty alt-spec (and did TERRIBLE dps I am sure).
I’m trying hard not to get caught up in that gear treadmill thing though. I honestly just want to SEE all of the dungeons and experience them before MoP comes out. I’m sure I won’t come close to getting to do Dragon Soul, but I hope to finish out the new Caverns of Time instances at least. I still have never done the new Onyxia, and sadly, I’ve never killed the Lich King or Deathwing! Or Kael’thas for that matter…..
This is why I really want to join the Laid Back Raids that JD is doing, but for some reason the Horde events always fall on days where I have other obligations. But I have so much more on my bucket list other than “killing things” and there is only two months to make significant progress on this stuff. Yikes, I should stop blogging and log in and get a move on! 🙂
