Plans for tonight

October 15, 2008 at 4:28 pm (Derain, Professions) (, )

I’ve decided to stop playing randomly. I don’t have much time till Wrath hits ( patch 3.0.2 has already hit) and I want to reach 70 … at least with Derain. So from now on , I’m going to establish a few goals and reach them. And I’m going to start tonight. For Derain :

  • travel to Arathi Highlands and rise my First Aid skill from 241 to 300
  • do a quick 10 minutes run and mine some iron
  • travel to Silithus , get the cooking quest from the innkeeper , do it and raise cooking from 289 to 300
  • try to find a few thorium nodes in Silithus and raise my mining as high as possible
  • farm 2 Elemental Air from the elementals in Silithus
  • go to Un-Goro Crater and level mining to 300
  • get a Cured Leather Hide
  • craft a Tranquil Mechanical Yety (this should make my engineering about 270)
  • level up to 58
  • Enter the Dark Portal
  • Greet Outland

So this is the plan. Let’s see how much of it can we manage.

Well , it looks like my work on the excel table was apreciated. Derain was promoted to veteran. I was very happy about it.

We finally bought our first guild tab. At first there weren’t many interesting things there , but last time i cheched , we had some interesting things , few indeed , but interesting nonetheless.

Osyrys updated his account and now he’s playing too.

Professions in my guild

October 11, 2008 at 5:58 pm (Derain, Guild, Professions, Whitedeath) (, , , )

The thing about WoW is that , although I don’t feel like playing it everytime (13 more levels , 13 MORE !!!) , I feel like doing something about it quite often. Somethimes I read lore on wowwiki , sometimes I read about the new patch on WoWInsider , sometimes I log on just to chat with guildies. But that time , i feld like doing something usefull , not just for me , but for others as well.

So I said goodbye to my braincells and started working on an endeavoring project. Our guild welcoming message asks us to put our professions in our notes. Everyone wrote them differently , didn’t say squat about secondary professions or about how advanced they are in their chosen profession. Some of them didn’t have notes at all even. Being an organized person , I wanted to put these skills to some good use , and also work a bit with Excel , to see if I’ve forgotten how to use it or not.

I started working on a table , which showes each guild member’s profession and how much has he leveled it. This way , you are only a filter away from seing who the best Alchemist in my guild is , to see how many people have bothered to raise cooking above 150 skill (just 3 :P) or if there’s any Blacksmith with max skill (and the answer is : no , there isn’t).

The bad thing about this list is that , at the moment it’s a bit useles … and what I mean by that is that only I can use it (because only me and a guild mate have it). I’ll have to wait a while I quess until i give it to my GM – i have to talk with her first , then exchange e-mails and so on. But , until that day comes , I’ll just delight myself knowing that Derain is the most knowledgeable Engineer in the guild , the most hard working Miner and by far the best damn Cook around (285 w00t)and that Whitedeath , although she may aprear to be a frail blood elf girl , has worked with the hammer of a blacksmith more than anyone else. (yeah , i know , i brag a lot so gank me)

Looking at those tables , at all those charts (i’ve even added colours) I realize I must be a little crazy … neah , mental health is overrated nowadays.

Dupa ce mi-am activat contul , am facut un level mic cu Whitedeath (careia o sa-i spun White sau WD de acum incolo) si m-am intors la prima mea dragoste : hunterul. Aveam in plan (si inca am) , sa-l fac 70 inainte de WotLK.

Nu tin minte exact ce faceam , dar eram pe cal si ieseam din Orgrimmar , cand vad o blood-elfitza frumoasa ca vine in directia mea. Ma opresc sa o inspectez. … adica sa vad ce grear are pe ea (ca in materie de fizic , toate sunt la fel de bine dotate). Si primesc un whisper care ma intreaba daca vreau sa intru intr-o ghilda PvE prietenoasa. Ziceam eu ca nu vreau sa intru in ghilde pana nu ajung la 70 , dar mi-am adus aminte de atmosfera din Warlords of Romania , ghilda de pe serverul pirat … si mi-am zis , in fond , de ce sa nu intru. SI-am intrat 🙂

La momentul cand am intrat eram cel mai mare din ghilda , eram level 51-52 parca. Acum s-a mai echilibrat balanta , avem 3 70 , un 59 si-un 55 (eu fiind 54). Primele impresii , imi place ghilda. Majoritatea sunt destul de casual , dar foarte prietenosi. Destul de vorbareti si cu gusturi bune in materie de muzica 🙂

Odata voiam sa ajung in Un’Goro. Eram in Tanaris , am apasat NumLock sa mearga singur si-am iesit din joc. Cand intru , mort. Nestiind cum sa ies , am apelat la ghilda iar unul din ei a venit sa-mi arate pe unde sa o iau ca sa ajung inapoi la cadavru.
Pana acum , toate bune si frumoase. O sa revin cu povesti cand oi avea ce sa povestesc.

P.S. : Am uitat sa mentionez , ghilda se numeste Condemned
