Welcome to the post where I ramble incoherently for a while.
No, not rant, just ramble.
Bits and pieces, observations etc from the last month of “weekends” , which admittedly has included weekdays.
Solo’d this yet?
I know people like to solo stuff, to do the impossible, but has anyone taken on this “world event” yet?
I’m not sure about the rest of you, but I suffer from Questtextphobia – I can’t bear to read it!
So my 1st trip through the Dark Portal involved several ghost runs through the demons, before I realized that I just had to talk to one dude that would safely take me to Honor Hold.
When you become you own non-combat pet’s dinner
Apparently cat food comes in rabbit flavor...
Squidly saw some Ulduar
The raid leader wasn’t convinced I hadn’t been before because I didn’t cause enough wipes..
But then we all know he is epic!
Even if it was his totem (wink wink) that took the longest
The stars of the WoWBloggingverse continue to drop by
For which I now drop my pants and Gnomeslap my new guild mates… I like to warm them up with a little dance off 1st.
Squidly does Onyxia
Which is much better than Onyxia doing Squidly.
Some pugs believe in tough love
I guess it’s better than a gear check
Squidly was more Maker and less Merry in the end
but still not half as disappointed as Gnomeaggedon, who went from…
The Gnome Sex Machine
What is more sexy that this hot little number?
To the least sexy Gnome under the moons of Azeroth and beyond
Why, Oh Why, would you transform the Gnomest Gnome in town into this?
Yet it would be rude to say Baaah Humbug!
I guess it’s one more thing I have in common with the Queen of the Gnomes.
Would you invite this guy to your raid?
Even with a GearScore of 8,000 I would be hesitant to have a Resto Druid by this name in my raid.
Still better than a dumb Ninja alarm
He was like a guard dog harassing the policeman while the real burglar sneaks out the back… note the rest of the raid discussing the Ninja Looter than had run off with the rest of the loot…
Apparently people don’t like to receive bad news in game either.
Last time I do an NPC a favor.. At least she didn’t call the guards down on me.
Spot the odd thing out
Can you see it?
Here’s a clue, someone got blasted to high heaven on a For the Horde! run.
Or Magni Bronzebeard had a bad curry that morning
If I ever see him, I’ll tell him where to shove his Snickers.
At which point I will need…
As a matter of fact, I think I need some right now, looks like the people in this guild already have some.
Little Less Conversation
A fun, social guild, where some of the people talk?
He nearly had me, but then I saw free gear being handed out…
People were really scared of this “guy”
Didn’t seem all that difficult to me, maybe he was for those people that bumped into him 4 years ago.
Anyway, soon we will have bigger things to worry about
Not that I’m scared… Not that I would ever run like a chicken
Best coppers ever spent
Elixir of Water Walking… How I love you!
Every time I log in, I see…
Ohh once I logged on to find the battle in progress… shame I didn’t log in on Gnomeaggedon.
Did the Gnome kill the vehicle, or the vehicle kill the Gnome?
I kind of feel guilty.. of course not as guilty as…
If I meet that Ninja Alarm again…
Of course I got this long after Onyxia’s dagger dropped… some would argue I used Onyxia’s dagger to get this loot… I know I will.
Did I really say I missed Barren’s Chat?
Don’t know how when I can get it at a city near me.
Have you ever noticed how the guy with the biggest QQ…
Has the lowest Dee Pee Ess?
Ever noticed how the bigger the event of importance…
The more you need to use the facilities?
Yes that is Gnome’s burning ring of fire… don’t read the newspaper on the loo when a Fire Mage had a Vindaloo the fight before…
Squidly was forced to find fresh meat for his new companion
Took me a while to carve him a Ony Wing.
Can’t complain about a lack of tanks in random pugs
If you get two, might as well use them!
Anyone else like taking their Drake to the front door?
I just love landing on the bank steps, waiting for 5 seconds until I am dismounted (or flying right up to the teller).
I always wonder how many people are madly clicking on their flying mount button when they see my fly in.
We all know Gnome is hot.. but what about Squidly?
There you go Syrana.. you have collected my set.
Right now I think that Squidly…
Looks better with cloths on.
I think it’s the guild tabbard that sets it off.
Gnome looks better in this
Although it might make his arse look a little big.
As Odin’s father…
I think it is only appropriate that Odin’s son shows me a little respect.
I didn’t have the heart to tell him…
His chicken legs was covered in white mold.
My latest Guild member had the nerve to tell me I was casting spells at too low a level
Shame it was because he couldn’t handle anything stronger.
So I stripped off and Gnomeslapped him!
Of course, for all that is decent I left my tabbard on.
He actually did a point or two of damage
So I did what any smart Mage would do…
I teased him!
Before one-shotting him.. but then, my GearScore was still bigger than his.. and I was naked!
What’s all this big brown Mammoth business?
I want me a scary white one!
I don’t normally DPS while I heal…
But if it saves on healing, I might as well (note the tank is in 3rd position)
Gnome is filling his barn
at < 1gold a pop, why the hell not?
He looks good in Saber
Ram, Pony & Strider!
I thought the edge of the world was only in Outland
but apparently they always had one in Teldrassil
It’s a long way down
Do you know how I know?
I turned my head for one second…
Luckily I am a Mage… I had just used my hearthstone… I would have cried if I was here for a 1/2 hour.. it’s a nice place, but I wouldn’t want to summer here.
This was my 1st Epic flying mount
It was worth waiting for. Worth all the scrimping and saving. I still think it is the most beautiful mount in the game.
Get your own Effing Quests!
How Effing lazy can you be?
You spawn next to the Quest giver, yet you spam raid chat for people to share the quest.
People do this every WG session.. they want the DAILY… It hasn’t been a daily for Effing MONTHS!
I don’t know about your server, but the standard response on Aman’Thul these days is to share CLUCK!
I keep one in my quest log now for this very purpose.
OK, this is a cool mount too…
IMHO, better than the Proto Drakes.
Proto drakes are like old steam ships of the sky, where as the drakes are like schooners, cutting through the air.
They positively glow
not just that, but they
Compliment every backdrop
Have I mentioned that I love my small, but growing menagerie?
I’m getting smarter
In part because I…
definitely not because I…
Smell better than the average Gnome
Tell me something… how come all the non-combat pets are so big?
On a relative scale, this is bigger than the average hunters pet!
I convinced a PuG to do the extra Old Kingdom bosses
That’s why I don’t like people skipping bosses in Instances!
It’s only taken 12 Effing months!
I got an invite to ICC25!
The stars had aligned…
It was Australia Day…
Furrypaws’ guild name is BEER BEER
Yet I said no.. I’d had my share of BEER BEER (and a few more) on Australia Day.
On top of that, Gnome hasn’t even set foot in Ulduar, let alone ToTC, ICC… Isn’t that the International Cricket Council?
Squidly has now seen the inside of ToTC… (2 bosses worth) after I hastily read up on the strategy.
So Furrypaws, if you are reading, I can’t thank you enough for the offer… if you offer again, preferably something not so progression that I will do nothing but make enemies in, drop me a line.. otherwise I think I better go read some strats…
Because we all know…
and you guys would be gutting Gnomes if I blew your raid through lack of knowledge.
Oh, Syrana… don’t even think of this!
I am not a Trophy Gnome!
Dedicated to one dedicated Bear.
This post is dedicated to THE Bear, who is taking a little time out. I hope it reminds him that it’s the little, irrelevant, stupid things that we see and do that make the game and blogging worthwhile.
I’m ready and waiting to give him the honor of a good Gnomeslapping, but I would never back a bear into a corner.
Hope you enjoy your break (as you can see, I enjoyed my few weeks off over the summer break) and come back sooner rather than later.. later will be good enough of course!
Worst come to worst.. remember… BEER BEER!
Gnomer and Out, Squidly and Stout!
