Otherwise Occupied.

I have been ‘otherwise’ occupied.


I started playing Aion a couple of weeks ago,  and after an initial frenzy of oh this is cool – look at all the pretty graphics ( full settings on new Pc)  I have now settled into an uneasy compromise between Wow and Aion time. 

I even started an Aion blog with a whole 2 entries and the very bad banner.  I need to get my Gimp out and concoct  a much better banner before it becomes fit for public consumption, and my interest in Aion has waned a little.

At first I was avoiding Wow like the plague, logging only for raids because I wanted to play with my shiny new toy, then gradually  the slight grindishness of Aion and my aversion at trying to find a group for long group quests when I didn’t want to be forced to sit at a pc for another stretch of time after a raid made me log back into Wow again, and be reminded of all the fun.  Mostly time  spent running round in circles.  

10 mans

It seems to be a slight growing trend,  a couple of guilds on server have started focusing a lot more on 10 man groups,  we now have 2 10 man groups with plenty of reserves in each that are raiding  in our 25 man raid times.

 It’s a funny situation in that they aren’t official  guild raids really – if you are already in a group that does a 10 man in your own time, you are free to keep doing it.  So the two groups have a mix of people who are already saved – and those who have never done a 10 man before.   I don’t mind,  it doesn’t mean I am raiding more, in fact it means I am raiding less,   It means I don’t pug or do an out of raid time 10 man Toc.    More free time to do other stuff like log off…   Unless we want to spent 2 nights a week wiping on hardmodes there really was no other option, we are officially bored of Ulduar,  and will be using  last weeks raid Id to work on Thorim Hard modes this week

Good deed for the week

I was in Stormwind gemming some new Pvp gear and someone sends me a tell asking me to run the stockades. I say yes,  but only once.  He is grateful,  I start killing everything, and he says ” but I don’t need these ones.. ”  I tell him I am just going to decimate the place, and we get through it rather quickly. Well I do,  I just went all zombie dot dot dot “>dot “>dot  dot disperse when I ran out of mana dot dot dot dot.  Done!

I thought doing something nice for a random would make me feel nice – but I just felt empty.  I think I had hoped that by doing something meaningful for someone else it would make my experience more meaningful. Nope. Didn’t work.   Probably why I ignored the request from some guildys for run through lobie dungeons   a little later on.  I had hoped I would never see “Can someone please run me through Deadmines” ever again in the green guild chat.  Alas other peoples bordems seem to have encouraged them to re roll.

Secret places.

This inability to easily access my screenshots is annoying me.  ( I even did a search for recent files and found no wow screenshots – I will work it out!) 

I spent some time with a friend trying to get into the Horde Inn in Dalaran, we ended up dying on the roof ( had to get the right spot by falling from high above)  and rezing inside the inn.   Running around,  reading the horde books that for some strange reason were still in Common, flirting with their waitresses, and dancing on their tables.    Eventually we just sat there  at the table, pretty much ignored by the hordies even though we were trespassing in their inn.  It was funny as we were trying to get into the inn a couple of other allies  saw what we were doing, and had a go.  They gave up.  We improvised.   We had to make sure we didn’t get too close to the door or we get teleported out into the main street of Dalaran. 

How come theHorde get their own exclusive zone  in Dalaran?

    I’ve been unable to get into the Alliance inn. Except on my Alliance warlock.

    Ummm there is a really easy way to get into the Horde inn.

    Paladin bubble – both of them I think – make you immune to the guard effect. Just mount up, get bubbled and run in.

    I sometimes hang out in there for something to do. Its not really that good
