Ding 47: Yetis help pave the way

I hit 47 this morning after a couple more quests and a ton of grinding for the Rage Scar Yetis in Feralas. The drop rate for their Pristine hides is around 19% and I need 6 more for the quest. Alas, there was no good gear on the AH for me, so I’m on my way back for more hides. I managed to get a Perfect hide to drop, so I can turn that one in at the same time.
I guess everyone is back at work today. No one is taking my offers for LFG in more than 2 hours.

44 and Counting

I got my Shadoweave set when I logged in after work. It was just sitting there in my inbox like a present. Then I turned in a couple of quests that took me to 80%. I got back on around 8pm and turned in another to get to 85% and decided to grind it out. I went to Tanaris to pick up the quest involving digging up the 30 ornaments. I have 4 already and fought my way through crowds of 45s to ding just before 9pm. I hearthed and trained. I will probably go back tonight and also see if anyone wants a level 44 priest for ZF. Probably not, but it is worth a try.

I have a ton of quests to go for STV and I have several Elite quests. This morning I tried 3 times to kill King Bangalesh. I just can’t do it without some potions or elixirs. The first time, I got him going pretty good until his backups came. When I ran back to rez, I noticed that his help were only level 33 non-elites. I figured, no problem. I put Corruption on one and King, and Pain on the other helper. I took down the one that would heal me as I hit him, and things were going along fine that way. I took down the other one in the same fashion, healing as I dealt damage. When I was ready to take down King, I was out of mana to keep putting up my bubble. I died again. My next try, I got the two helpers down after King called them, but he took down my bubble on a greater heal that was supposed to save my life, so I died. Time to go shopping or get some enchants on my stuff.

Uldaman Down

I finally used the LFM last night. I got Wakarathe, a guildie 60 mage, to join me and I found a husband/wife duo of 45s rogue and shaman to join us. We went in the back door and cleaned out the entire instance with no deaths, thanks to Klik. I was back in the saddle again, and I healed in the highest instance yet.

After we took out the big stone woman in the map room, I got her blue cloth leggings, went into her chamber and my computer completely locked. [Read more…]

Affliction Tree with a Priest Rocks; Ding 43

I logged on last night to a nearly-instant whipser from Rhone, Core’s 60 Affliction Warlock. He is bored until BC and wants to level me as fast as we can so Core can have another priest from time to time. The idea was to round up mobs, for him to put 2 DoTs per mob, and run around with a bubble. Then he would do that health transfer to his succubis and I’d heal him back. When I wasn’t doing damage myself, it was non-stop action with no downtime to drink. I think we’ll be doing this a lot, especially if I hit 60 in time for Burning Crusade.

He met me in Tanaris as I was rounding up Rogues, Assassins, and Mages. I got jumped by Caliph Serpentsting twice that morning, and we saw him 3 times last night. The sky must be falling or Hell must be freezing over, because he’s ALWAYS required a manhunt. [Read more…]

Heinz 57 anyone?

Gitr dinged after 2 1/2 hours of grinding. I was in Silithus grinding worms, scorpions, and spiders to the tune of 680-725xp each. I completed 2 quests while there, which helped with 12,000 of it.

In IF, I got the the queue for WSG and got in pretty fast. It sucked, but I was suprised at how much it sucked. Click to enlarge the standings:
