Yuppers Davlin is actually working on Noble Garden! Can you believe it, the most boring of all the holiday achievements and Davlin is working on it! That’s two slams, I’m doing achievements and they are as boring as fishing.

Why is it boring?

You pick a spot, you wait for said spot to spawn an egg, you collect egg.

Rinse, repeat, about 400 times.

Why am I doing it?

I want a title. Davlin’s found no titles worth his effort except for “The Noble” and maybe one or two others that I just don’t have the ambition to work towards. So I’m putting myself through this very sexually laiden innuendo of Achievements (seriously, if I hear one more time of how cute it was that bunneh’s were getting it on while we’re running Naxx, I’m not only eating bunneh stew, but I’m darn well going to be carrying around a bunch of lucky baby bunneh feet) for the title. Woot, Here comes Davlin the Noble.

In other news, I’ve ran a great 25 man Naxx with a group of great folks this week. Freaking awesome. I only ended up with some nice pants, but it was still a fun run.

I’m also currently working on two new stories for Davlin. One spawned by BigBearButt’s contest that I didn’t notice until after it happened, and one based on Davlin’s trips into the Caverns Of Time.

I’m slow and lazy and a whole list of other things, so don’t expect a deadline, deadlines make it feel like work, work is no fun, and I won’t write the stories if they feel like work.

That’s how I roll.

Also, call out for edumacated bloggers who haven’t been interviewed before. We’re looking for someone who isn’t a hunter (we’ve done a lot of those lately) to come on and maybe talk shammies or pallies or rogues or about 9:00 central time (about when we do the interview) over skype during our live show. We kinda pulled a /shrug and forgot to ask anyone this week. So any help would be hot, otherwise I’ll be hitting up the “oldies, but goodies” file and finding us a comeback interview for our tenth, landmark, episode. Landmark and all that, I want it to at least be kinda good, so someone better durned well respond.

I’m thinking of doing a Make a Davlin Story contest too, thinking about it…it’ll have a prize, but Dav is poor, so don’t expect super duper, maybe some Pet Biscuit cards or something.

But just thinking about it, don’t get your panties in a bunch yet. Unless you’re into that kinda thing.

PS: Nexultor’s been getting very pissed off at Blizzard’s inability to fix his Talent Points issue. I suggest everyone go over to his blog at http://lvl80elite.wordpress.com and pick on him for getting his game messed up.

Nexultor: They need more spirit beasts…like a boar or something…

Davlin: That’d be cool…

ONE WEEK LATER:

Its not a boar, but its a new skin, I’ll stick with Frejya, but I’m excited about hearing stories of this hunt. Plus…its just the first notice…their might be more…

I’ll bet Nexultor sends Kateff out for a boar hunt soon…

Also, I totally have a “What just happened…?” rant about my Second ever 25 man raid experience.

This is just more important, expect rant this afternoon.

Ok, You can finally subscribe to the podcast over at iTunes. They never tell you that after you submit it that it could take days to actually be available to subscribe to. But all that aside, you can now, and I suggest you do, its wonderful. Or you can just listen to it on the side there.

Davlin got a new belt!!! Rejoice and praise and all that jazz. Check it out!

Who needs a gem bonus when you can add that much awesome attack power in just gems alone. mmmm…./drool.

I also got the Incisor off of King Dred finally, special thanks to the guys and gal who ran me through it (Mustafah, Zaralin, Dezaras, and Nexultor).

Tonight I spent a large amount of time ignoring Jaffa my wind serpent and Frejya my spirit beast in order to level up Bubba my big butted Gorilla. He’s jumped from 76 to 78 tonight and I figure he’ll be 80 by Thursday.

In other news, I’ve decided to start fishing, as I think getting fish and selling them on the AH might be profitable and doesn’t really cost me anything other than my downtime between stuff…so yeah…it might not make me much money…but I’ve started to care a little about it.

So tonight we ran Drak’Tharon….incase you didn’t pick that up with the King Dred comment….and I took Bubba…incase you hadn’t pieced that together either. And I must say, we’re getting either super well geared, or just becoming an incredibly well oiled machine (I had previously already thought we were a well oiled machine, so I’m gonna say “Wow, we’re pretty durned well geared! *yeah, I know I used durned, I went all dwarf there…) because we walked through that place WAY easier than ever before.

And another thing, if you want to make sure that none of the adds in either boss fight, the one with Big Ugly Troll face dude who’s corpse buddies explode, or the one with big glowy angry person who calls for reinforcements while immune, then it helps to have an AOE pet like a gorilla. I don’t normally bring a tenacity pet into a heroic, but with Bubba up there hitting adds, it was a lot easier for me to yank aggro. Of course, Nexultor and Mustafah were throwing down their AOE’s and other attacks, but in comparing between Bubba versus my other pets, Bubba comes out on top at being able to hold adds and make them do what I want them too. That’s what a tank pet’s for, I know, but its awesome to be reminded in an actual scenario. Normally, as awesome as Frejya is, she’s no good at tanking multiple adds. And Jaffa’s just big into burning nice round holes into them. But Bubba likes to grab them by the scruff of their undead flesh and say STAND HERE.

Yay Tenacity pets. Oh how I fall in love with you all over again.

The entire run was easy, I think I was the only one who screwed up. I hit my arcane/steady macro too many times as we were fighting and pulled an extra big mob. We handled it well…but that’s one of those, hide your head and pretend you don’t know what they are talking about moments. Promise guys, it’ll never happen again.

/hangs head in shame.

That’s right up there with the time I disengaged right off of one of the high spots in Karazhan. I freaked out so bad I couldn’t find my parachute button. /facepalm

Cool Picture.

Ran Nexus. Had an almost wipe. I was way back doing my ranged thing. Everyone died when Keriwhatshername was at 1% Health. She came running at me. I shot her BETWEEN THE EYES. She died. Slid to a stop at my feet. When everyone rezzed. Nexultor bowed and took this screenshot.

Please enjoy.

First off! Yay new blog look. Epic Dwarven Blogger’s taken a turn towards the different. Why, you might ask? That’s an easy one to answer.

Davlin is never happy with the look and thus its always under new direction. Tell me what you think. If y’all hate it, Davlin might change it. He also might just grab a pint and cuss you all out, take your chances.

Second on the agenda today is Dav’s absence from blogging for almost a week? (A week? Lemme check…nope…only 4 days…wow…seemed longer.) I’ve been kind of sick. “Kind of sick” equaling out to Dav can’t even sign onto WoW for much longer than maybe one Heroic a night! Oh the shame! But no worries my friends and fans, Davlin feels as though he’s on the mend, as this light hearted (yet could turn out ominously dark) post implies.

In other news, Yay Hunters loot! Got me some nice bracers last night that just ROCKED MY SOCKS! Seriously, my socks are still shaking. Yay Heroic Nexus. Sadly though, in a fit of Davlin doesn’t want to take it all (Need roll on bracers, greed and win on Frozen Orb) I passed on Sphere of Red Dragon’s Blood, because I thought the DPS guys I was running with could use it. Turns out they already had it or something better, and our wonderful healer Zaralin ended up with a useless trinket to sell off of a greed roll. Let that be a lesson to you, Davlin, being greedy’s ok when everyone you’re running with has run these Heroics a few more times than you.

Oh yeah! Naxxramus is coming up for my guild. For all you guildies of mine that read this, start doing your homework. First of all, you all need to start gearing up. Some of you are fresh 80’s, right out of the box, still smelling like the guy at the factory with the greasy hands and the cigarette who inspected the plastic wrap before you got shipped. You need to go out and you need to hit heroics, HARD! You also need to go out there (ie WoWwiki.com) and you need to read up on Naxx now now now!!!As stated in previous rantings, I don’t use Vent, even though our Guild does have a channel (thanks Zaralin), and I’m sure some other folks out there might not either, so save us some typing time and learn the fights. Yes, I will take the time to do a short refresher course before every attack, but that’s no excuse, I love you all, go read.

And finally, I’ve decided that I want to beg and plead, but since I’m lazy, I’m going to rant about what I want WoW to do in an upcoming patch and hope that by ranting about it, it’ll leap from my mind to some Blizzard Employee’s and become reality. What am I begging and pleading for?

I want a Cavern’s of Time: Gnomeregan.

You heard me right. Take the largest, most fun instance ever, and revive it.

How?

Easiest way: Raise the level of the bosses and trash. Done. Davlin’s Happy. Jaffa Rejoices. Frejya does a little Spirit Dance. Bubba Pounds Chest in Elation.

Better way: We’ve already seen thousands of quests where you fight with or against a copy of yourself. In Old Kingdom there’s even a point against that final boss where you fight phased evil versions of your party. So here’s my plan. The same Gnomeregan map, all the baddies are the same, but the levels are bumped up so that they’re a challenge. In the little safe zone in Gnomer, instead, you find that the gnomes all holed up there were replaced by those evil blackish time dragons and they’re about to kill some hostages. Who? You and your teammates. That’s who. From the past. I’m currently unsure of if their levels should be different, but we’ll work that out in the beta testing. So the first half of the instance is a timed race to get to the hostages, and the fact that they are you is a surprise the time lord guys never told you. You get there and you have to fight a boss to free them. That’s your first boss. Then you’ve got 5 new members. Its a ten man raid! Woot! Now you and your counterparts have to make it through the rest of the instance, where every other boss is also some time dragon. The kicker? If your counterpart dies, you die. So yeah, you get extra heals with your healer’s double, and extra dps with your dps double, but if the double dies, you’re out of luck (Maybe for this reason the counterparts should be the same level as you in normal, but in heroic they are level 70’s). The final boss robot guy with the bombs can be different, sure, why not. And we’ll have it where he randomly takes a counterpart and offers them up for some sort of sacrifice thing like that chick in Utgarde Pinnacle. Oh yeah, that would rock.

Mostly I just want Gnomer to come back. I’d just be happy if they allowed us the option to make the current Gnomer heroic. No code rewrites, no huge patches. Just lemme go in there and have a challenge still. Jaffa hungers for lepers.

Ok, time to swallow my engineering pride (I’m too lazy to level the last 9 points) and send Nexultor the mats for the Nesingwary 4000. I’ve got me some Heroics to run.

Peace out!
