Another Day, Another LFD

When in dungeons, I sometimes /flirt shamelessly with blood elf men just to see what they’ll do about it, since I’m either playing a character who is short and green or who is dead and probably has a maggot infestation.  A couple have blushed, while some have flirted back and a ton have ignored me.  This one had a new response:

A League of His OwnHe's got a point.  Blood elf men have the most fabulous hair in game.

A League of His Own
He’s got a point. Blood elf men have the most fabulous hair in game.

Normally, I try to edit the names of others out before I post screenshots here.  Brewcelee, however, was so freaking awesome, you get to know his name and see his macros in all their punny glory:

I can also fight the Spine of Deathwing here!

The lore according to my map here: after you beat the big bad meanies of the last two expansions, they all retreat to the Temple of Ahn’Qiraj to plot their revenge.

Awkward: Faux Pas Edition

From what I hear, the latest blogging topic is faux pas, those events/actions/etc. that are otherwise known as moments of glory in a most ironic way.  This sort of thing is my life.

Faux Pas #1: Staying Together is for Wimps

Well, That's Awkward

Well, That’s Awkward
Jaina, Healer, Tank and THE LICH KING OMG on one side.
All three DPS? On the other.

Faux Pas #2: THE MORE YOU SHOUT IT THE MORE EFFECTIVE IT IS

Strand of the Ancients Strategy

Yes, leave the inexperienced mage by herself.

Faux Pas #4: Don’t Think of the Children

The Story of Mazz

The Story of Mazz
I expected her kids to magically despawn or something.
WRONG! They ran around guilt tripping me.

Faux Pas #5: Situational Awareness is Key

Um, Ow

Um, Ow
I’m not sure the orc saw THAT coming.

Faux Pas #6: Talking to Strangers About Your Family

We Literally DIAF

Uldaman Ulduar Uldum Ulwhatever!

Just don’t read the comments on that video. Trust me.

Dear Journal,

Couple nights back, Mechalis and I went to Ulduar.  We both skipped the place for the longest time, ’cause why would anybody stick around in the snows of Northrend with the Scourge when you could be where it isn’t snowing and where the smell of rotting flesh is a little less intense?  (Plus, the only currency the Scourge accepts is YOUR DEATH, which doesn’t have a good exchange rate as far as I’m concerned.)

Anyway, Mech did most of it and then ditched, supposedly because she can only do so much when ranged damage is necessary.  But I’m pretty sure she did the fun part and then left me the problems.

Uldaman, Ulduar or Uldum? 01

Uldaman Ulduar Uldum Ulwhatever! 01
The scenery is so much nicer than The Madness of Deathwing.
Maybe Deathwing is mad because he’s in the Maelstrom and not Ulduar.

Mech told me about how Caliverne drove this destroyer thingus, and she got to shoot things down and use this awesome chain thing to grab the stuff they left on the ground!  (It’s SO unfair!  I would’ve been twenty times better at it!)  She says it took her awhile to figure out the whole chain business, which isn’t surprising, if you consider that whole got-Scourged-got-Better thing she had to deal with.  Anyway, it wasn’t entirely clear whether or not she was supposed to be shooting at the towers or not, but she shot at them because they were behind the flying things, which insisted on moving.  Oops?  Note to self: Death Knights have big swords because they can’t aim.  Do not give them projectiles.

Mechalis also went on and on about how she found this Magic Safe Square.  Gawd, did she ever tell me about that square!  She said that if you stood exactly on it, you didn’t get hit.  I was like, “hit by WHAT,” which was dumb, because it gave her another opportunity to start talking about wings and stuff.

Uldaman, Ulduar or Uldum? 02

Uldaman Ulduar Uldum Ulwhatever! 02
THE MAGIC SQUARE IS MAGIC

I guess they were attempting to roast some dwarves, but had a problem with a total lack of firewood or other combustibles, so they had to make do with some dragon instead.  After awhile, they decided they’d had it, because dragons aren’t exactly cooperative when it comes to barbeques that are not of their own choosing.  So they moved on.  She had a moment when she thought everybody but one would have to die but it turns out she just didn’t read the achievement right.

What do people got against Crazy Cat Ladies?  Ya ever wondered that?  I think about that a lot.  Mech thinks more about the Tin Man Kid.  I think she feels guilty since she broke his heart.

Then Mech said she got to run through a “gauntlet,” but that she really didn’t have to worry about much, because she went with Caliverne and some other Death Knights, and they pretty much smashed everything ever.  She didn’t remember much else about that part.  I guess the long hallway reminded her of the light at the end of the tunnel, or something, being a Death Knight and all.  She didn’t really remember much about the Furnace, or Freya, or much of anything about the Cache, which she said she thought was rare.  I swear, her attention span is like that of a gnome kid on candy.

That’s where I came in, though, so this is clearly where it gets good.  First, we watched an orc hit a big red button, which was great.  Then we ran around on fire for awhile, which was less great, and then we killed this robotic gnome guy, which was more great.  Uuuunfortunately my grand entrance here was somewhat ruined by the fact that I spontaneously croaked (I swear I wasn’t standing in anything!).  Fortunately, somebody used a battle res and I saved the day by shooting stuff!  Or so I like to think, anyway, so I’ll keep on thinking that.

Uldaman, Ulduar or Uldum? 03

Uldaman Ulduar Uldum Ulwhatever! 03
The Titans really liked that “Ul” sound.

I ran around aimlessly for awhile.  Then we got to meet this chick named Sara, who had some serious issues and could definitely benefit from therapy.  (As I like to say: she doesn’t have issues. She has a subscription!)  “Sara” should also rethink that name choice, because her true identity is pretty obvious.  Don’t think I’ll be fooled just because the name means “princess!”  It figures a big ball of slime with slime teeth would pick an attractive woman as an avatar.

I, being one of the sanest people I know, never went insane.  (It also helped that I practice the fine art of Self Preservation, so I was not clicking on one of those damn portals, no thank you!)  Uuunfortunately, everybody else did.  I’m not sure who stabbed me first, but it was pretty brutal and involved a lot of swords.  Despite that, we perservered, and we managed to win the day!

I like Ulduar, I think.  Mech did too.  We both kinda wish it didn’t take half our natural lifespan to complete, but I guess beggars can’t be choosers.  You don’t have to listen to the dragon Aspects complain when you fail, which is nice, because sometimes failing happens and they just gotta deal with it.  I mean, come on, Aspects, let’s be realistic here!  Ulduar also isn’t on fire, which helps me appreciate it more.  I’m kinda tired of fire.

Sincerely,
Thermalix

p.s., Still gotta do some cooking and smashing.  I’ll write more on that later maybe.

p.p.s., Since I stuck that video in this entry, lemme write down Prinnie’s 10 favorite videos, in order:

  1. Happy Place (Best.  Machinima.  EVER.)
  2. I Am Forsaken (This one gave me the chills, and is also the only serious one on this list.)
  3. A Day in the Life (“He … has a family!?”)
  4. World of Workcraft (If the 9 to 5 gig were a MMORPG …)
  5. Meet the Hunter (This video is made of pure truth.)
  6. Don’t Make Me Get My Main (Made by the same team who made Happy Place, which explains why it’s awesome.)
  7. What Would Warchief Garrosh Do? (It’s almost a little too quick, but it’s super cute and almost makes me like Garrosh Hellderp.)
  8. Welcome to the Deadmines (A classic, even if I’ve never actually seen these bosses since my Heroic Deadmines runs are post-Cata.)
  9. Boom de Yada WoW (I can still sing the Discovery Channel original.)
  10. Pugs All Night (I admit it, I like it.)

Fair Trade Agreement

Yeah, this is totally fair.

Goblin Starting Zone

Goblin Starting Zone is the best!
Bite me, Valley of Trials!

I think I said a while back that I wasn’t going to post any of the ideas you have when you drink Kaja-cola.  I changed my mind!

The Hidden Side of Silvermoon

The Hidden Side of Silvermoon
Apparently, only RPers know of this.

Did you know that the Tailoring shop in Silvermoon City runs on leper gnome labor?  This guy’s minion even goes around whipping them (although one of them doesn’t seem to care, he always goes back to sleep).  Do you think leper gnomes are still sane enough to care?  If not, I need to get some for my Rocket Camel assembly line.

Blackwing Lair

Blackwing Lair
Black dragons make bad business partners.

None of my goblins understand why any self-respecting, profit-inclined sentient being would ally his/her/itself with the black dragonflight or anything Twilighty.  There isn’t a whole lot of gold in the end of the world, people, because the gold will cease to exist!  There’s probably lots to be made in extending the end of the world, but the black dragonflight isn’t exactly into that.  Besides, they’ll just kill you and take your money anyway.  (Plus, working conditions almost always suck, because they have a thing for fire.)

Unfortunately, none of the goblins in Blackwing Lair seemed interested, so Therm, Caliverne and Shao gave them another reason why allying with crazydestructive dragons is a bad idea: people who aren’t aligned with said creatures will kill you.  Either way, you end up broke and dead.

Oh Sheeyit Screenshots: Did I mention I take a lot of these?

Map Quest /punny!

Map Quest /punny!
If you ignore the large statue,
I like the fountain.

While Niremere has absolutely no problem with a stone-faced Varian Wrynn staring at everything forever, I am personally not so fond of that part.  But if you subtract that, the fountain is a very nice place to be.  I also like the vaulted ceilings in the  Keep:

Vaults

Vaulted Ceiling
Yes, I look at this sort of stuff.

Architecture!  Excuse me while I sit here and ponder whether those ornamental columns are marble or whatever the Azerothian equivalent is.  Back Horde-side, Thermalix has toyed with the idea of stealing the flames from Alliance capital cities:

They will NEVER see me coming.

They will NEVER see me coming.
Ok, once they killed the mage, they did.

So far, all she’s done is follow one mage into Exodar, then high-tail it out of there on a camel when said mage made too many friends and bit the dust.  I expect she did not die because the sight of a goblin on a camel was probably a bit much for the Exodar NPCs.  You have to stop laughing before you can aim!

All’s Fair in Booty Bay

While looking for iron ore on Niremere, I ran into Caliverne.  We /emoted each other into the Salty tavern and had a drink.  What?  What happens in Booty Bay stays in Booty Bay!  (Or so the advertising campaign says, anyway.)

We were having a lot of trouble hitting the button that day.  And yes, when it became clear we were going to wipe, I jumped.  Sadly, the temple gets wider about halfway down, so I didn’t make it all the way to the ground.

So You're Willing to Use Goblin Barbershop Technology

Willing to Use Goblin Barbershop Technology
Clearly, vanity overcomes all boundaries.

Am I the only one who thinks it’s weird to see an Alliance barbershop displaying hairdos of male goblins?  Could it be that the items within a barbershop are goblin technology, and in exchange for using said gizmos, Alliance barbershops are contractually obliged to display goblin imagery!?  Or is it just that we’re all vain, whether we’re tall or short, green or not?

Niremere Meets Her First Rare

Niremere Meets Her First Rare
Lupos in Duskwood

Niremere met her first rare the other day.  Sadly, since she’s a paladink, there were only two options: kill it, or kill it.  I briefly thought about having Thermalix hike out there to tame it, but she’s already tamed Ghost Howl, who shares the same model and skin.
