A-Caroling We Will Go - PVP FREE method.

I logged on earlier this afternoon to be greeted by one of OOT's resident altaholics, Taurohtar , finishing off the Winter Veil achievement A-Caroling We Will Go . This achievement has you fly around to each of your enemy's capitol cities and sing a little festive song . Intrigued, I joined her along on one instance of completeing this achievement. Funny enough on her warlock . Gratefully, Taur went through it one more time for me and sent along these instructions and screenies. So, here's Taurohtar un-edited. 1.       Take the portal to Dragonmaw port ( Equip your sweater! ) ( Don't leave it in the bank as I did ).  2.       Travel in an almost straight western direction 3.       Towards Ironforge 4.       When you pass through the wetlands, you’ll know you’re on the right track if you see these hills. 5. You’ll fly past the front of IF by way of the eastern side. 6. Hopefully you’ve been smart enough to fly high enough to avoid trouble, yo

SSOTD:Shirt.Woot Derby 229

Shirt.Woot, the clothier of this blogger in humorous T-shirts, just closed their latest derby " Roleplaying in everyday life ". A number of their shirts tugged closely on my "i want" factor. Evidently roleplaying means wearing dull-armor grey. ?? This looks vaguely familiar. and so does this ...

Now that you have it, what are you transmogrifying?

I have been excitedly running dungeons again. No more troll-fail-roics in my queues. Over the last few days, I believe I've hit each of the 3 dungeons about 3 times a piece. This has mean some wonderful upgrades and a good amount of valor points (~1500). I have slowly managed to upgrade all of my basic gear with i378 something-or-other. I currently have 2 items with spirit, but the the rest is all dps. Down to the trinkets, weapons and rings. Next adventure, LFR? On my disc priest I am still avoiding the new dungeons. Healing is much more demanding than PVP. She's at a gear score of 377 PVP gear. Tonight we are planning our first jump into Season 11 arena, I am hoping for the best, but considering she hasn't maxed out on Ruthless gear yet, I imagine she'll take a beating until we get adjusted for the right match-making index. So, are you morg-ing anything? For Elk, I went with a skull-cap, everything else is running the default model. I thought it matched the mo

Vote for MrRobot - 1 hr left to vote...

Mr. Robot is trying to get nominated for the "Best Bootstrapped Startup" on the Crunchies (an award program run by TechCrunch). All you have to do is follow this link and nominate Team Robot! Voting ends tomorrow (Tuesday) at 11:59pm. Also, if you share this link with friends, on your guild forum, Twitter or Facebook, it will help Mr. Robot's quest to unlock the Crunchie achievement! So Mr. Robot... what is a "bootstrapped startup"? This basically means that we didn't get a ton of money from rich people to run our company. The three founders (Yellowfive, Zoopercat, and Revulva) now run Team Robot as a full-time job, trying to make it entirely on profits from the website and services that we provide. We really like video games and helping people improve and have more fun, so we hope to continue making enough money to keep the servers running! And.

Working towards a 378 iLevel

Saw on Emberstorm With a group that knows these fights, this round of end-game dungeons doesn't seem as painful, as say Wrath when we finally made it into ICC. There was a definite dread last expansion when ever you randomly landed in Halls of Reflection. So far in the runs I've had, Dragon Soul seems fairly well balanced and no major surprises. Even picked up 3 new upgrades on my first time through and that's only because I lost the chest drop to the guild mage, typical. :) Now, I am sporting the healie helm , which isn't ideal, at least it's a gear score better than my old dog-collar . I did sense some irritation by the people who've ran these dungeons much more than me, especially the role-play segment on the dragons happen. " Click the darn dragon.... " remarks in chat. Looking around at my guild members, I see those who are logging in, quickly trading in their i359 gear for shiny new i378. Holiday's over, we MIGHT even have enough to j

IT: Save Me Plz!

As I am sitting here, trying to get motivated about wiping over and over again in the LFD/LFG queues, I start to think of each wipe, as a crime scene. All those corpses over the place, just waiting to be processed, photographed, bagged and sent of to the morgue. Then I take the leap from in-game to real world. Take one major car accident, mix in some WoW. Instead of the morgue showing up, there's just a bunch of people sitting around a roast pig, eating, while a shaman has thrown up totems to heal everyone. Maybe a few people still a ghost running back from the local 'graveyard'. Of course, then I fall over to a short story I read, where the game world starts to mingle with real-world.        They ride two white unicorns down a forest path blanketed with fresh snow, and by some strange twist of magic or fate they come upon something that should not exist.       It lies half-buried in the drifts, but Leena can see that it was once a sort of carriage made from black m
