Yeah, so love is in the air…
Ironically I have time this year to complete this achievement for the very reason that the only love that I have been breathing lately is the unconditional love of Odin.. well assuming he gets the icecream.. the ball.. the Spiderman action figure and 80% possession of my PC.
When I grabbed that screenshot I was feeling a little melancholy.. I mean really, unless you are a gaming couple, where can the love possibly be in a MMORPG (without the RPG of course… Although [ANAL} Pyroblast does kind of have a romantic ring to it).
Aint Gnome’a do it!
I promise myself I will not roll a Goblin when BurningWrathOfTheCataclysm comes out,. Goblins are pretty low on my ladder… hell, I would much rather be Syrana’s little Imp (cause let’s face it, being Syrana’s minion would have benefits), I might even go so far as to be Saresa‘s Imp if she comes back to WoW Blogging (Yes, gone. Yes she was a Warlock, but she was an Aussie Warlock).
But a Goblin?
Seriously, who could love a farty Goblin?
I used to, well still do, love the Horde.. but not after they take these filthy little creatures into their homes.
Speaking of Love, apparently you can buy it in Stormwind…
So yeah, I was looking for love in all the wrong places, but if I wanted some companionship (wink, wink), there was this certain lady of Stormwind that professed her love for a Goblin… yet her room was busier than Flinders Street Station…
Man in, Man out…
Man in, man out…
Yeah, the odd Gnome too…
Your a nice guy, but just not the one for me.
Talk about a strange coincidence… here I am in the middle of the love fest and what two achievements come together..
Mmmm way to drive the dagger in Blizzard…
Tough Love… sure. Nice people… Hell Yeah!
Unlike Bear, I have actually been encountering some nice people over the last few days.
There is this little thing going on in SFK at the moment. Lots of frustrated people TRYING TO USE BLIZZARD’S HALF ARSED LFD SYSTEM than still doesn’t include at the very least the holiday instances, let alone all instances (Come on Blizz!).
Grrrr… frustrated… naaah not at all.. takes me back to the good old days of spamming for a group then spending 40 minutes getting to the instance…
Anyway, a shout out to HereFishy, Brimbo, Almitywolf & Stumperz, all from Aman’Thul for being understanding when I went AFK mid fight.. mid cast, mid fight. One minute I’m there winding up a Frostfire Blot (from memory had just popped my IWIN button), the next I am gone.
When my 3 year old call out for his Daddy, Daddy comes running.
I got back to my corpse (would you heal someone standing in the bad?) and started to apologize profusely.. you see we had all gone down. It was a wipe and a lost attempt for the night.
I felt like shite, they made me comfortable with my choice (Of course, there was no choice and I was comfortable with that).
So thanks for your understanding guys!
But wait, there’s more…
I decided to run normals rather than heroics for the rose drop. In reality if probably would have been quicker to run through the heroic versions with overgeared 80’s, but I figured there was no harm in me helping out some lowbies while I wasted my night looking for flowers.
I had some nice groups. I’m sure I put the tanks under a bit of pressure, but they came up with the goods most of the time (If one of them could handle my 7k on one of the bosses, I think they will do fine) and when they didn’t I either dispatched the mob with a flick of my wrist, or dutifully brought the mob back to the pack to die.
One other 80 appeared on one run, realized it was a normal and said:
Oh, it’s normal.. never mind, I’ll stick with you to the end.
This was my attitude too. While it was no accident that I was there, I was up front and told them I was only there for the rose – which I would take my chances with like everyone else and I would be there till the last boss dropped.
Man did they drop…
Anyway, on one occasion the rose dropped, we rolled and I lost. Khimestone won the rose then immediately opened a trade window with me. We couldn’t trade the rose (and TBH I wouldn’t have accepted it anyway), but it was such a nice gesture.
It kind of makes me wonder what happens when people get their 1st T9 piece.. I get the feeling they go a little nusto, because these pre-80’s were great people to run with.
So thanks to Khimestone for offering the rose!
Lovers AND fighters
Those Battlemasters look like such a tough bunch don’t they.. turns out they are a bunch of pussies!
I am a fool for love!
For the record, I am a fool for love and yes I pity the fool. To think I wanted to do this and cursed that Valentines always got in the way… now that valentines isn’t in the way… well
- I know I’m loved…
- I know there are loving people in the world…
- I hope you all find your love, the take it down to Gurubashi and take it for a spin!
Ohh speaking of Great groups
This one has nothing to do with holidays, they were just a great group.
I have healed HoR a few times now without any issues (OK, maybe a few issues when I have tried to heal on Gnomeaggedon), but for some reason the other night it just wouldn’t come together. The tank was good, the dps were good, the only person I can blame is myself, but I’m not going to beat myself up about it.
Instead, I would just like to thank Spitfire – Blackrock, Digesualdo – Proudmore, Dazell- Aman’Thul & Pumble – Aman’Thul for sticking with the group through 8 wipes, not one One-Wipe-Pansy amongst them!
Gnomer and Out!
