No, I'm not a minor. I'm a miner.

Patch 4.0.6

I found a pleasant surprise in my inventory when Cata hit. This particular item has been in my bags since forever ago... probably when Isolte was around level 15 or so from Deadmines (and you might just think this is really stupid) but I'm really happy about this so I decided to express my little sliver of happiness with you. ^_^

Ok, so.. Just for fun, I've always wanted that rare quality mining pick, the [Digmaster 5000] (a rare drop in Uldaman,) just for the simple fact that it was the only blue mining pick in the game that "Also serves as a mining pick." To my surprise, my [Miner's Revenge] has been upgraded from a green to a blue having been changed to "No longer available" as a drop in the game.

Apparently, the [Cold Iron Pick] was also upgraded from green to blue and it drops from Hogger in the new Stockades now. ^_^ So, there are now 3 rare mining picks, only 2 of which still drop in-game..

Is it dumb that I feel special-er for having this pick instead of the one I've checked the AH for and farmed for years?!?! I think not. ^_^ *giggles* Yes, it's the little things in life... *smiles contently*

Respect Your Elders

Patch 4.0.6
I know I'm way behind the times on this achievement, but I just finished up Glory of the Hero tonight. The reason why this is even blog-worthy is because of how tickled I am by the way Nuku and I got the achievement. XD

So, Respect Your Elders was the last meta-achievement I needed before getting my hands on the Reins of the Red Proto Drake and Nuku and I gave it a go... two-man stylez. With Nuku as a bear and me as enhance, this was actually really difficult since we figured going in that I'd need to off tank the Guardian(s)... Well, we died 3 times since I couldn't stay alive with all the extra adds on me, and for some reason, the guardians would NOT stick to me. For some reason, Nuku and I have a sneaking suspicion that Blizzard changed something in the way that they aggro a tank, cuz the boss and the guardian would just automatically run to Nuku even without him taunting... So we came up with a stupid plan...

I pull the boss into the room just before his room (to get away from the eggs that the adds spawn from) while Nuku hides in the corner and tries not to aggro ANYTHING 'til the guardian comes out. And we hoped that I could just stay on the boss while the adds attack Nuku...

What happened: I pulled the boss to the other room, Nuku accidentally taunted the boss when the add spawned. He even yelled to me IRL,
"Awe damnit, Crystal I taunted the boss!! I'm sorry!!"
I said, "Whatever just keep the adds off me!"
And the adds were on me anyway... I died! BUT Nuku shadowmelded and the guardians and adds despawned WHILE THE BOSS STAYED AGGRO'D ON NUKU!!
So, I excitedly yelled,
"I CAN SELF REZ!!"
"DO IT!!! I DUNNO WHAT THE F*CK JUST HAPPENED! BUT DO IT!"

So, I rez, we kill the boss, BAM achievement achieved. We lol'd hardcore.

Small Quick Update

Patch 4.0.6

I finally hit 85 last night in Twilight Highlands. I skipped Uldum completely, going from Vashj'ir to Deepholm to Hyjal (yeah weird order) to Twilight Highlands. The main reason why I skipped over Uldum is because I have a personal love for all things Egyptian and I wanted to savor the zone instead of grind through it just to level, if that makes any sense. I'm actually gonna finish off Twilight Highlands before hitting up Uldum too just because I like to quest and know about the lore of the zone.. even the filler quests.

Speaking of filler quests, there is one in Twilight Highlands that merits a longer, more in depth post from me, so expect that within the week or so. Anyway.. Feels good to be out of Tier 10 and in some random shit. I haven't stepped foot in a regular dungeon on the way from 80-85, but that can wait cuz I likey to questy. ^_^

Potential WoW Parody Collaboration ^_^

Patch 4.0.6

I decided to submit an entry for Zharkan16's song contest! His initial contest video can be viewed here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q_pO3FBfZYw. And if you haven't subscribed to Zharkan on YouTube yet, please don't forget to do that now because he's an amazing WoW Machinimator and the talented rapper/lyricist who pulled me in for "Pugs All Night"!

And now, without further ado, here's my entry for "I Will Catch You" by Zharkan16, a WoW parody of "Tonight I'm Lovin' You" by Enrique Iglesias!



A funny little sidenote: this is the first "song contest" I've ever entered on YouTube, but even if I don't win, I'm beyond happy with this song because it was a freakin' blast recording and producing this track since I've always wanted to do a "Tonight I'm Lovin' You" parody/cover. =3
