AQ20

AQ20

It was a very busy weekend. I have been plugging away at Cenarion Circle rep and trying to get some achievements done. I did the quest chain to summon all the Dukes in Silithus, including the one that used to be a 20 man raid at level 60. It took me 3 days to get all the mats to summon him, and five people less then a minute to take him down. It netted me a whole 1,000 rep, which really is not worth it considering 10 twilight texts give 500 rep a shot. Oh well, it was still nice to finally see that line done.

Durning the weekend I upped my achievements done to 142 thanks to the help of my guild. We went into ZG, AQ20, AQ40 and SSC recently to get some achievements done. They also cleared ZA but I was not online for that one. 

Honesty is a great policy

As for the title of this post? Well I was in the AH looking at glyphs and such and came across a stack of 4 Scrolls of Recall 2, which I bought for 12 gold. They weren’t red to me and I handn’t read the tooltip fully. I walked away happy with my purchase. However, just a minute later, I got a tell from a nice guy named Xuz, who asked if I was 200 Inscriptioning. I said no, sorry, and carried on my way. He however proceeded to explain to me that I couldn’t use the scrolls if I wasn’t, and he’d buy them back full price, AH cut and all. He didn’t have to do that. I honestly didn’t even look at who I was buying from, and I wouldnt have yelled at him if I had. It was my fault I didnt read the tooltip, but his honesty meant a lot to me. He said he hadn’t meant to decieve anyone, and I know he didn’t. I sent back the scrolls but he could have walked away with my 12 gold without a care in the world. Instead he choose to make sure I understood what I bought, and it means a lot to me. So Xuz, this post’s for you!

Top Ten Countdown

[EDIT] Im about to give up on posting pictures in my blog. I do realize its all kinda wonky, I’ve tried to fix it and can’t. I hope its not too much trouble for you all. I did notice that if you make the window smaller everything falls into place. I need to work on my CSS skills I think

Oh how I miss the good ol’ days. Im late to the show but this shared topic posted by Cathmor on Blog Azeroth who asked

What are your top 10 memories from your time in Azeroth/Outlands? Why are they so memorable? If you had to rank them from least to most memorable, which would come out as the #1 absolute best moment of your WoW career?

10. The First Time I had All Epic Gear — This was only recently actually. I’d always managed to keep a blue trinket or something to that nature, but finally, I managed to obtain every slot in pretty purple goodness for my tank set for my Paladin. ❤

9. My First Full Kara Clear — Despite its ease now, that only took more then a year to achieve, and I had to reroll from horde to alliance to have ever seen it.

8. Kiting Drak and his Buddies on a Certain Self Centered Restro Druid — In other words, like half of UBRS came a runnin at him. I managed to trap him back in Rend’s room. Was an awesome day even though I had to listen to him whine about it for near on a week.

7. First Full BRD Clear and a Gander in MC — Back when that crap was ya know, hard. It took a couple of hours but we all got attuned, and accidently pulled the molten giants. Was good for a laugh though.

6. First time I saw Ragnoros — He was HUGE!

Ragnoros!

5. All Out Balls to the Wall PvP During the AQ Opening Event — It was lag central, I died so much that timer got insane, and I don’t even know if I killed anyone. But I did get booted clear across the zone by a giant ass mob.

4. Infusion’s First Downing of Hakkar — The rest of the instance had been easy, but for some reason we could NOT take him down. He had developed this awesome move of “DC whoever has the highest threat” that was really holdin us back, but we did it, and it was good.

3. ZOMG Pet! — Learning the hard way that if you jumped off a ledge to take a short cut in an instance your pet was gonna run the long way around to find you, and he’s bringing friends!

2. Getting Suspended for Three Hours — When each battlegroup was taken down for three days to upgrade the servers, ours became severely busy with two hour plus queues. We came to find out that it had been pre determined by one server to dilerbertly all come to the same one. So being reasonable people, the Horde and Alliance got together on my ventrilo server and we all rolled on thiers. Made a guild called <We Caused Your Queue>. We sat around in Ironforge spamming needlessly, and for that, I got the suspension.

And the number 1 most memorable time in WoW:

1. Infusion’s Raid On Ironforge! — Oh man that was epic. No one expected it, it lasted for hours, and since it was a PvE server it was a rare occurance. See for yourself!
