The more things change, the more they stay the same

Reading through my last two blog posts, it seems to be a crazy mirror of what has been going on. DotA has been completely superceded by WoW, but the amount I play has certainly not decreased. Every day. It is unbelievably good.

Also, I mention that Colleen was coming down to CT in March. Next week, I am going up to visit her =) My first trip to PE, and my first roadtrip ever where I will be a licensed driver. Yancke was making vague noises about joining me for the trip up to visit his family, but that was a while ago and I'm sure he's forgotten. I shall have to remind him, a halving of the petrol bill will be most welcome. Icon has left an unpleasant dent in my pocket.

Dragonfire was this weekend, and proved most enjoyable. The Shelagh was down, which was fantastic, and it was a lot of fun playing with her again. She is an exceedingly accomplished roleplayer. Robyn also came down, but not to attend the con at all. She rocked up on Saturday for a teeeeny amount of time, and then her and her b/f bailed to go do touristy things. Meh. Sed, Si, Ada and myself were invited to her parents' place for dinner that evening, which was a very pleasant evening of catching up with Robs, and Sed as well who I haven't seen for aeons.

In further parallels (this time from the second to last post), I was quite sick last week, for three days. Crap, cos I felt like shit. Cool, cos I got to play WoW all day =)

Other events since the last time I posted including getting and losing a girlfriend, my grandfather dying, passing one of my MCSD exams (SQL), a work paintball event and Waynne's bachelor party.

Oh, and anyone who has an active blog that cares, please let people know that I am posting again. I don't want to spam everyone with emails or IMs or whatever. Viral information spread is better, and cooler-sounding.

I will be adding a WoW section to all of my posts, at the end so those not interested can skip. They will be appropriately labelled. Also, no complaints if there appear a plethora of posts that contain solely WoW content =P

My main, Grothar, has just run Uldaman for the last time ^_^ The 2h mace I wanted off Archaedas, the end boss, just dropped. [Rockpounder] is mine at last! Whee! Now on to ZF, and maybe Mara again, actually killing the princess this time, unlike my first abortive run thru it.

My tailoring alt, Kaeljin the troll shammy, has just twinked his tailoring up to 150, and now needs to be level 20 before he can upgrade his tailoring max, so he'll need to be speed-levelled at some point.

Then in a shock move, Gus at work has just deleted his 60 hunter and 47 lock, citing his complete addiction to the game as the reason. He will be missed =( With all my other stupid friends playing Alliance, thus robbing me of the opportunity for easy party play (thanks guys), I am now more or less all alone on the Horde side of Haomarush. My horde friends include Tai at 56, Sed at 24 and some other guys at work hanging around 20-something. Ah well, I guess it's solo play until I can level up to 60 and start instancing with my guildies. Gus did manage to wangle me into his guild just before he left, so that's pretty cool at least =)

Well, I guess I'll just have to wait for Chelle and Alex to organise ADSL and WoW to get some decent party action in. Until then, enjoy the Alliance, mofos. We'll be coming for you someday.

Bring it on Hordy.....
Tell Blizzard to make the Tauren Druid's cat form less FUBAR and maybe (and i stress maybe) i will return. A black sleek panther with arcane tattoos is way cooler than a lion with horns.

My broadband returns tomorrow =)

I remember you telling me once that gamers sell high level characters to other insane gamers. Why didn't Gus do that instead of deleting all those wasted hours?

Haha! You are about the 4th person who has asked that question =) Gus said that he "didn't think of it at the time"

The high level characters that insane gamers buy for insane costs are one's with insane gear.

Anyway, email the blizzard support, they can undelete characters anyway.

He did have at least some of the Beaststalker set. None had been upgraded to Beastmaster tho.
