Happy 2nd Blogday Gnomeaggedon!
I wanted an awesome post for my 2nd blogday, unfortunately this is the best I am going to get.
Celeglin inspires me
Nevertheless, an email from Celeglin has inspired this post, so here we go…
Just wondering how you’re enjoying the Fire Festival. Would love to hear of any crazy hijinks haha
Fire, ahhh Fire!
As I said to Gaz the other day on Twitter…
Fire is not a Spec, it’s a way of life!
Or a lifestyle, or something, who cares about the small details, right?
Yeah so Fire Festival… What do I think?
I think it sucks!
I was looking forward to it, I couldn’t wait to get my hands on the little fiery pet that eluded me last year while I dodged wife aggro to log on last year and beg and plead for groups to have a crack at Ahune for his pet.
Umm, yeah, that makes it a bit difficult.
What do we get…
- Ruby Sanctum… Blah blah blah
- Real Friends ID… Blah blah blah
Real Friends… lol… Real Friends… I guess this one feature will turn virtual friends into real friends… lol.
Ohhh undocumented feature…
I think the Blue Post would read:
We’ve heard your cries, we know what you want. Not seen since the epic introduction of WoLK (and every patch since), we bring to you…
LAGARAN: Ruby Sanctum edition
My usual 60-odd Dalaran fps is now topping out at 0.7fps.
Yes, LESS than one frame per second!
The solution is simple, get out of Dalaran. Which I did. Like Gnomes of the past, I sought refuge in Ironforge, glorious lag-free Ironforge (ha! Would have liked to hear someone say that back in Vanilla!).
I then accepted an invite to ICC.
Hey, what’s with making the weekly raid boss an ICC boss? I doubt many people are going to waste a lockout on a single boss, therefore the average Gnome on the street won’t be completing that quest.
Anyway, I’m a smart Gnome, so I don’t port to Lagaran to head to ICC, instead I hearth to the Argent Tournament Grounds.
I’m flying from the tournament grounds to ICC when I notice a shadow on the horizon at the corner of the screen, I turn to look at it and see…
Yeah, the power of the Mages and their miraculous Disconnecting device extends across zones, a glimpse of the shadow of Dalaran is enough to strike heroes down.
Not much playtime
So between downtime, Lagaran and work, I haven’t had much time for WoW, or anything WoW related.
I did take a minute to read up on the Fire Festival though.
- Individual sacks of loot – excellent
- Chance for sack to contain pet – excellent
- Ahune’s Fiery pet replaced with Icy Pet – WTF!
I completed the Fire Festival last year on Gnome, even wrote some guides about getting to the fires using TomTom. The only thing I wanted and was deprived of, was the pet.
Yes, 5 attempts each night for the whole Fire Festival and I didn’t even see the pet drop, let alone get my hands on it.
This year, THIS F’N YEAR, we get one crack at the pet per day and they have taken the Fire Pet away!
Dear Blizzard, please catch a plane to Oz so I can smack you black and blue! Yes, all of you, CEOs, Developers, Designers, Publicity, Janitors. The lot of you come here, form an orderly line and wait your turn as I smack you up one by one.
So yeah, Fire Festival… Whatever.
It breaks my heart to use the words Fire and whatever in the same sentence, but… Whatever.
One positive note, the LFD tool for Ahune works…
Like I care…
Happy Birthday Celeglin!
Happy Blogday Armaggedon’s Coming!
