Ash the cat and random stuff

This is truly horrifying … what is wrong with his eyes?!

Watching … or rather listening to Method live stream was exciting, Method made something out of raiding, for years first kill videos used to be that; a video, published in a platform like youtube after the kill, Method turned that into something more than 100k people watched it at one point … that is impressive.

And here is some random stuff

This is Ash, i sent Bailey the gorilla to the stable to take some earned rest, Ash comes from the new Darkshore, the new cat model looks nice, the name comes from the color, i just hope to get the cat mount from Darkshore … and soon in 8.1.5 hunters will be able to use one pet as a mount 😀

I want to see this quilboar as a raid boss … world boss? or make him fight in an arena where mobs fight and the players watch … i’ll watch that, make it a micro-holiday! turn yourself into a quilboar for 12 hours by watching a match.

How long i waited for this world quest to appear? i wasn’t lucky in Legion, when this quest appeared i wasn’t playing then it never showed up, the other quest offer a pet and i did that in Legion, now i have the mount at last.

I like doing these quests every time i take an alt to Drustvar.

Every time visit the pet shop i see this big man and his corgi and i go “ahhh … cute!” 🙂

No kid, you don’t, you really really don’t want to be a Death Knight, first there is death then you have to go back to Warth of Lich King which was in the past, you’ll make a mess of a timeline and Chromie is not going to clean after you.

Yep, fishing in the blood of the planet … Magni is not amused.

Every time in Siege of Orgrimmar i use Piccolo of the Flaming Fire and watch Varain dance, everyone dance there … it makes me laugh every time, serious situation with silly dance!

Somewhere in Wetlands, flying over this circle of flowers, me and the player in the middle there found it for the first time as he flew down to check it out as i did later, the game hide details like this very well.

Dear Postmaster

I’m writing this in a lovely day, sunny and warm, the winter is coming and it is the best time of the year, i write to you in hope to reach an agreement about recent mails i got from you.

While i’m scouring caves, mines, castles and dungeons, i killed countless enemies, took their gold and silver with my trusty Loot-A-Rang, took some of their gear and left anything i considered trash, unworthy things that have no place in my bags.

Yet i find all the trash in my mailbox! what in the world are you doing?! are stalking me?! because there is no other explanation, you come after me to loot the dead and empty their pockets from all the trash i left there then you send it all to me? in the name of all old gods: WHY?!

You even sent me troll sweat you sick sick man! how did you do that?! did you find sweaty dead trolls and starting to “harvest” their sweat?! this is beyond disgusting.

Sir, you need help, in the name of all holy things you need to learn what to send and what to leave on the ground, ask Katy for help, or better, let her be the new Postmaster … or Postmistress.

Yours,
A grumpy hunter


Seriously, the postmaster have a problem, who send cheese in the mailbox?! tell me, did it happen to you? after doing many dungeons you find your mailbox full of trash?

Try Classic WoW in Blizzcon .. or at home

HJXL9SWU597K1537971337106

Good news Classic fans … buying Blizzcon virtual ticket will give you different rewards for Blizzard’s games, and access to limited Classic WoW, just 2 zones, one for the Alliance and one for the Horde, and by that Blizzard already did one of two things i wanted to hear about in Blizzcon.

As for the rewards, 2 faction themed cloaks and 2 banners, not as impressive as the mounts from last year, but i don’t really care, Classic news is important.

The other thing i want to hear about in Blizzcon is anything related to Diablo:

  • New class for Diablo 3? ok, i’ll take it
  • Diablo 3 new expansion? good
  • Diabo 4? better
  • Diablo the MMO? even better.

Taming a new pet, mythic only so at last i can do it, i named it Aberash, which by that website means “giving off light, shining” in Amharic.

 

Kul’tiran Balance druid

Highmountain moonkin form

Wowhead started mining patch 8.1 in PTR, so many interesting things coming in the patch, but the most interesting thing for me is new allied races, Kul’tiran for Alliance, Zandalari trolls for Horde, and both can be druids, and you can work for both of them right now, mostly reputation grind, by the offical release of 8.1 you should get exalted with the faction.

Wowhead have the models for moonkin form for the Kul’tiran druids, also for Highmountain druids, and aqua form for the Zandalari, the Highmountain moonkin form looks normal, just different colors and with moose horns, the Zandalari aqua form  looks dino-ish … and dionsaurs are cool, but look at this horror:

What is this?! it’s ugly, i love it! when i play druid i play mostly Balance, so this is how i will look while walking around Azeroth …. when i walk to NPCs they should run away from me.

One more thing, Kul’tiran heritage armor, one commenter in Wowhead noticed that there is no thin kul’tirans, i hope that just because  it’s too early for 8.1 in PTR, but i guess Blizzard will not offer that option since there is no thin female kul’tiran.

Watching Method’s world first

screenshot from the stream, G’huun is dead

Method, a WoW guild in EU was and still streaming their Uldir mythic raid, and they got world first kill for G’huun, it took them so many wipes to reach the last boss, it took them so many “so close” moments, from 4.8% to 3.3% to 1.8% to 0% and and exciting moment for more than 100k viewers from all Method channels.

This is the first time anyone streaming a raid like that, and for me as a very casual player i have a chance to see what the pro players do and how they play, first thing i noticed as the stream change the camera between the raiders; they have so much going in the interface, so many warnings and information flying around.

The other thing is they are studying the raid and what happened, and try to avoid falling into same mistake, slowly they progress from phase to phase, i saw them die at phase one and come back to do it again and again then they perfected this phase so now they have to learn phase two … and it goes like that slowly.

Playing like that is not for me, but watching others doing it? oh yes, it was exciting to see world first live on the net, we are lucky, just imagine people in 2004 have the tech we have today, will they stream first kill for Ragnaros?

Anyway … i rarely watch streams for WoW players, but Mythic world firsts? i think i’ll enjoy watching these streams, we know there is 2 raids in 8.1, that will be exciting to watch.

On island Expeditions

WoWScrnShot_091618_151400

I didn’t know what to think of Island Expeditions, wasn’t excited about them but i liked the idea of 3 player scenarios, quick queue and short game-play, i thought i’ll give it a try, and the more i play them the more i like them.

Wowhead have a good guide, they always have good guides, but i prefer to try first then read guides, i confess: i never read dungeon or raid journal or guides, i prefer to just go there and try them, make mistakes and learn, then after that i read guides to learn more.

One main reason to keep me doing these expeditions is to get mounts, pets and transmog items, and in the last one i got a pet:

WoWScrnShot_091618_114356

It’ll take time to collect all the rewards, so far that’s not a problem, i’m sure after few weeks i’ll feel bored with them, and that’s fine, but for now i’m enjoying them … a lot.
