Thanksgiving News

Well, we made it through the Thanksgiving weekend. Although we only had one dinner to do, it was at our house so we had all the prerequisite shopping, cleaning, and cooking to attend to. So, what I had hopped would be a WoW filled long weekend didn't really turn out as such.

Thursday...I'm not too sure what happened to Thursday...I know we napped a lot. We did find a bit of time in the evening to play our baby Warlock and Pally combo. We're in our early to mid 30's and opted to quest in STV rather than the new 2.3 location that I can't even recall the name of...our hope was that everyone would be there and STV wouldn't be the gank zone we all know and hate. Actually, it wasn't too bad. We did get ganked a little bit...don't those level 60-70 players have anything better to do than go to a level 30-40 zone and kill babies? Sheesh, get a life...go farm or earn rep or do dailies...if you must PvP, then stir up shit in higher level zones where you can pick on someone your own size!!!

I also got an afternoon of fishing in on Friday and finally caught Mr. Pinchy!!! I immediately used him and was bestowed with Mr. Pinchy's Gift which contained 5 Super Healing Potions and 4 Super Mana Potions. Boo! Then, on Sunday, the cooldown was up and upon use, I got Mr. Pinchy's Gift...again...with the exact same number of potions. Double Boo!! I still have one more use on Tuesday...keep your fingers crossed that he'll give me the Magical Crawdad Box on that use.

Saturday was our Thanksgiving dinner, so no play time. But we did get to play most of Sunday. We did our Arenas in the morning and finished 1337...even though it's not a good score, it does spell leet!! Then, after lunch, we did a full clear of Kara in under 4 hours and netted 22 badges! Yippy!! I now have enough to get Slikk's Cloak of Placation. I also finally got Drape of the Dark Reavers for my kitty set...which sorely needs some upgrades. After our dinner break, we had our Gruul's run which went well and then off to do our Herioc Daily which was Arcatraz. We opted to skip the first boss, so the run ended up getting us 3 badges and then another 2 for the quest turn in. Overall, a 27 badge day....not too bad. Hopefully soon I'll be able to upgrade some kitty items as well.

Oddly, this is a slow work week for me...hopefully, I'll be able to do a few better, more informative posts. But, first, I will need to plan out my next few item aquisitions. Tomorrow, I should have close to 4k arena points and I need to decide which 2 pieces I want to buy. I'm pretty set on getting the Vengeful Gladiator's Dragonhide Tunic for my Bear set, although I want to run a few numbers before finally committing myself to that purchase. The Vestments of Hibernation rank higher on the calculations I did last month, but, as I'm close to the armor cap as well as having a healthy dodge rating, the Stamina and Hit rating on the Vengeful chest piece seem more beneficial. My plan, if viable, is the use to gems that are good for both Bear and Kitty and use that chest piece for both forms, then buy a second Vengeful item for Kitty use...keeping only 2 T4 pieces for Kitty form, but still using 4 T4 pieces for Bear for that 1400 armor bonus...but again, must run numbers first....

** Edited to change time frame of Kara...my hubby told me it was just under 4 hours, not 3.

Have you checked out http://www.wowhead.com/?item=33583
from the badge rewards yet?
Slikk's cloak is not much of an armor upgrade for those of us not at the armor cap over top of the gilded thorium or even the thoriumweave.. However I haven't found a much better belt than this till really late in the game. It has the stats to be useful in both cat and bear form. I socketed it with a 12 STA and an 8 AGI gem to boost both sets slightly. If you've already acquired a better or equal belt than ignore this.

On a side note, love the blog, keep it going!!!

Yes, I have Waistguard of the Great Beast already. It, along with Band of the Swift Paw, were my very first purchases.
