This is what happens without raiding

Suck it, Sorak! I guess now I can see what’s up with those arch quests they have in some dungeons.

It wasn’t a terrible as I thought it would be, just a little tedious and boring at times. I don’t have any plans to do it all over again–I’m not entirely crazy–but never say never. I probably should have made one of my dwarf toons be the archaeologist, but oh well.

I did throw arch on some of the lower leveled toons. I’m not going to actively work on it with them, but if they happen to be in a zone questing already and there is a digsite then it will be handy to have an extra source of XP. Trying to focus on archaeology on a toon that can’t fly would be the death of me so I’m not falling for that trap.

Some of the digsites were annoying when I COULD fly. Totally looking at you, Feralas. I will say that it was much easier once I was at Outland/Northrend levels just because everything was confined to a much smaller continent.

Now that that’s done with, what annoying time-suck should I work on next?


The “I’m not dead” post

Yes, you’ve seen this on every other blog nowadays. No, there is no specific reason.

Just not a lot to report these days. Both SR and Crits raids seem to have folded until MoP. Disappointing but understandable. If the desire is not there to raid then people can’t and shouldn’t be forced into it.

Which leaves me with lots of time for archaeology. I guess I could post daily updates of everything I’ve dug up, just to piss off Sorak and see if he follows through with that threatened ban. I’ve already been demoted several times; what’s one more punishment?

I will probably check out D3 when I have the time to download it. Since I work from home and downloading slows everything down, I have to wait until I’m off work to do it. But when I’m off work I’m usually playing. So I have to find time when I’m off work and not playing. Hmm..maybe when I’m asleep?

Everyone is tired of that game and has moved onto the new thing so it will be easy to log on, right?

You can’t spell orphan without Oprah

Posted in Holiday with tags , , , , on May 9, 2011 by zarigar

Another holiday gone by; another chance for progressing the meta gone by. Maybe sometime around 2035 one of my toons will get the Long Strange Trip achievement.

This has to be Zarigar’s 4th or even 5th Children’s Week, but this year he only just got the second pet needed for Veteran Nanny. Whoops. I’m still not sure if Lorethos has ever rented out of those children.

Matron: “Here you go, Little Zuglet, this nice zombie will be your guardian for the week.”

Orphan: “AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!!!!!!” *wets himself*

I’m still not sure what kind of reckless Orphan Matron lets a troll take charge of one of her children for the week. She is lucky she got the kid back with all of its limbs intact.┬áThankfully Zarigar’s shoddy parenting and child neglect overrode his desire to BBQ a small child’s tasty arm and make a bracelet out of its teeth.

My holy pally did a few of the orphan quests only because they gave out some good XP and they were a change from instance grinding. Even the old world ones aren’t so bad now that you can fly everywhere.

I would make my annual complaint that I don’t like Children’s Week coming right after Noblegarden, but when you mostly ignore both holidays, it’s hard to complain about being overwhelmed by them. What is the next one, the summer flame one? That’s another one I tend to ignore but–again, thanks to old world flying–it might not feel so tedious to do now and I might actually work on that one.

Or not. We’ll see which alt I’m working on at the time.


And just to tie my thread title in, I have to say that I’m so glad that Sorak can check up on everything WoW remotely. It also means he can keep an eye on his auctions while not missing his favorite talk show. I might even watch if it had more shows like this:

Happy Monday bitchez!
