Fidelus Amicus is born!

The core group Sal and I hang with are now our own guild! Fidelus Amicus is Latin for "Friends Eternal". We had a great time getting together to take this picture. We dueled, which I normally do not do. I was able to beat Hantros the Uber Mage 2 out of 3 times. Woot Woot! Great times with great friends is what WOW is all about.

Xena's Epic Mount

So I was questing with Carl tonight after Sal had to log off. I told him my gold situation on Xena and on Elly my priest. Being 65 with my priest I want to be sure the minute I hit 70 that I am able to purchase my flying mount - not an epic one mind you. My warrior is far from her regular epic mount. She has to buy that then have enough gold to buy a flying mount. (In order to purchase a flying mount the Journeyman Riding skill is required, which is over 500 gold).

Carl suggested I purchase Xena's epic mount now and share the gold between my characters. I usually do share a bit, but over 500 gold - that is a lot. As we were questing together, he had to keep stopping while I caught up - he has his epic Pally mount. So after he logged off, I thought more about it. He is right. I will make up the gold by farming and questing and grinding, so I decided to get Xena her mount. I chose the Swift Palomino. WOOT! I can't wait to show everyone. The minute I mount up I wonder who will notice first. Only one person I know was on and I told him, but requested he keep it to himself. =)

My Warrior Dings 63!!

WOOT!! Thank you Sal and Carl for helping me with questing tonight. Sal had to go, but then Carl and I continued to play until I hit 63!!! WOOT! Now I am in Zangarmarsh, where Elly my priest just finished, which is fine by me. Zangarmarsh is beautiful!

New Helmet - I am not a Hunter or a Druid!

I got a new helmet as a quest reward. I think it makes me look like a Hunter or a Druid. I guess it isn't about style, it is for protection. =)
Oh well, I can live with it.

This picture was taken in Terokkar Forest facing the Allerian Stronghold.

Forum Trolling

  • Thorium veins will produce more ore (posted by Tseric)
  • There are other hot fixes to on the General Forums
COD Scam

  • If you receive an in game email saying a present is waiting for you from the Argent Dawn and there is a COD (Cash on Delivery) do NOT accept it! This is a scam! Blizzard never ever sends anything to people COD.

Noob Moment (from the forums)

  • I thought the only way to gain rested EXP was to type /sleep and leave my character logged into the game

DING 64!!

WOOT 64!!! I love the light effect, it makes me feel special. =)

I spent around 20 gold to train, holy cow! I am glad that I get more gold when I sell stuff to the vendors, etc. I guess it all evens out. I just need to make sure I save, save, save for my flying mount.

I did decide to respec to Shadow to help with the leveling up. I didn't level up as Shadow from 1-60, so I am new to Shadow. I was Shadow for about a month for PVP purposes, which was fun. I loved silencing Mages, Warlocks and Priests. I was in Zangarmarsh the other night and in my Shadow form I blend in pretty well - can you see me?

Thanks Qiana!

So on Saturday I was playing my Warrior who happens to be a Blacksmith. I am trying to level up my Blacksmithing now that I have entered the Dark Portal and it is proving to be very time consuming. I need core of earths, two, to make one pair of pants. So I told my friend Qiana about it and he said he would farm for them while I made my way to Silithus. He stayed with me until one dropped. WOOT!

He went off to quest while I stayed to farm. I was able to get 2 more after he left for a total of 3 and I already had 1. For two hours of work only being able to make two pairs of pants - hardly seems worth it. But like every profession, leveling it up can be a long drawn out process.

Thank you Qiana for the help and making farming fun!
