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.

Promotion , short news

October 15, 2008 at 3:59 pm (Derain, Guild) (, )

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 ūüôā

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 ūüôā

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

WoW crazy movies

September 4, 2008 at 7:42 pm (Fun) ()

In ultimele zile m-am uitat pe YouTube la niste filmuete tare comice. De la Wierd Al n-am mai ras cu atata pofta. Filmuletelee in cauza sunt parodii dupa melodii celebre si versuri schimbate pentru a acomoda tematica Warcraftului.

Niste citate :

Hard Like Heroic : if you got a lot of stamina i’ll smile / and then come back once in a while / don’t want to subscribe / just want the trial

Preety Fly (For A Dranei) : Yeah they made some cool toons / as far as fantasy goes / but this one’s a cross between / a smurf a goat and Davey Jones

Whitedeath , blood elf Paladin

September 1, 2008 at 7:17 pm (Whitedeath) (, , , )

Pana cand imi voi reactiva contul de WoW , lucru care sper sa se intample in urmatoarele 2 saptamani , nu va voi delecta cu nimic nou din realizarile mele din joc. De vreme ce nu ma joc , nu am cum sa realizez nimic , evident. Asa ca va voi povesti din peripetiile ei trecute.

Am incercat toate rolurile mari din joc. Tank , healer , dps. Toate mi-au placut , dar cand vine vorba de lupta cu bossi , cu tancul e lupta cea mai frumoasa. Tu esti in centrul actiunii , tu te lupti direct cu ala rau. Cand da cu barda tu simti , tie-ti scade viata. Esti in prima linie. Nu esti un privitor distant care din cand in cand mai trage o sageata. Esti implicat direct in lupta , simti ca tu te lupti , nu altul in locul tau. De asta vreau sa joc un tank. La solo , tot hunterul va ramane dragostea mea , dar in grupuri , prefer sa fiu tank.

Sentimentul acesta de lupta directa l-am avut prima data in Wailing Caverns. Am trecut prin caverne fara prea mare organizare. Eu eram tank cu WD , Alex era healer cu Gunracer (GR) , shamanul lui. Mai aveam cu noi un rogue imbracat foarte bine (facea fata unui elite fara probleme) si inca o clasa sau doua , parca un hunter , dar nu mai tin minte bine. Nu prea aveam rabdare sa marcam si apoi sa actionam atent , intram si luam la pumni tot ce ne iesea in cale , ne descurcam usor.

Si ajungem la Verdan the Everliving. Rogue-ul vad ca se retrage , nu se mai avanta curajos cum facuse pana atunci. Astep sa ne refacem mana si viata si incep atacul. Rogue-ul vad ca ma asteapta sa iau agro pe mine , si apoi vad ca brusc viata incepe sa scada. Si sa scada bine. In sfarsit un boss care dadea , nu se juca. GR trebuia sa dea heal dupa heal ca sa ma tina in viata. Pentru prima data intr-o instanta am simtit ca ma lupt cu ceva puternic. L-am invins pana la urma. Nu pot spune ca a fost o lupta grea , dar am simtit ca am luptat. Din acel moment am hotarat sa o duc pe Whitedeath departe.

Momentan e tanara , doar level 24. Dar , fiind imbracata numai din instante , are un echipament destul de bun. Avand ca meserii Blacksmithing si Enchanting , am pus fiecare enchant la care am avut acces pe echipamentul meu asa ca in final am ajuns la

  • 1182 Health (75 din enchanturi)
  • 1947 Armous (36 din Armor-kits)
  • 119 Defense
  • 20.86 Avoidance
  • 0 Spell Damage

Si imediat ce o sa-mi reactivez contul , va voi informa de noile peripetii , precum si de noul echipament de care voi face rost. Pana atunci … mai vedem noi

World of Warcraft – the cast

August 29, 2008 at 6:26 pm (Derain, Kardilles, Whitedeath) ()

Welcome to the World of WAAAAARcraft.

M-am apucat de acest frumos joc obsedant prin iarna 2007-2008. Fiind un mare fan al claselor care trag cu arcul (a se vedea influentele Legolas) , avand o frumoasa Amazoana pe Bow la Diablo 2 , prima clasa pe care am ales-o la WoW a fost un Hunter (arc si sageti). Hoarda (only kids play the good guys). Troll (cea mai frumoasa clasa ca aspect). Male (e mai masculin).

Apoi¬†am schimbat serverul , m-am dus¬†pe Neptulon ,¬†unde mai¬†cunosteam deja¬†pe¬†cineva. Avand putina experienta de¬†grupuri , trecand prin drama LFG-ului ,¬†am vrut¬†sa¬†ma¬†fac¬†healer. Si primul meu¬†personaj¬†pe Neptulon a¬†fost un priest , troll , male , Kardilles (ATM 25) . Apoi , pe la un¬†level¬†sub 20 ,¬†am ales¬†sa ma¬†intorc¬†la¬†clasa¬†mea favorita –¬†hunterul. Tot troll , tot mascul , Derain . Care e mare si tare . ATM e lvl 50 .

Apoi am convins un coleg sa se apuce si el. Si ca sa nu fie singur-singurel , am luat-o si eu de la inceput cu el. Si-am facut o echipa de elita. El healer (Gunracer , shaman , troll , male) , eu tank (Whitedeath , paladin , blood elf , female ). ATM 24. Nu se compara LFM 3 DPS cu LFM tank and healer.

Impreuna am mers prin RFC , prin WC (adica Wailing Caverns , nu chisatoare) , prin SFK si BFD (neterminat insa). Am farmat Cavernele plangacioase dupa pantalonii din Embrace of the Viper de ne-am plictisit. Nu cred ca o sa le uit vre-o data cum arata , cat m-oi juca WoW.

Acum asteptam amandoi sa ne reactivam conturile expirate , sa facem instante pana dam ding la 70 si apoi poate un Kara mic , macar pana la Curator.  ATM Рwaiting.
