Round 1 Passed and Various other sundries

Monday, March 26, 2012
I have determined my new favorite way of logging in.  Logging into my guild and seeing "Congrats on making it to round 2 Kare!" from JD of the Amateur Azerothian.  He happens to be in my guild and is an awesome guy (and I'm not just saying that because he's a judge!).  So I ran over to his round 1 finalists post and yup!  There I am!  I was number 12.  Yay!

So, I dug around yesterday morning and came up with an outfit for round 2 which I'm now farming.  (I actually have all pieces but 1, the shoulders.  Those are going to be a PAIN.)  I even got the weapon we're basing it off 1st try.  Woot woot!  I do know I can use a mogging program to do this but I'm going to try to get the outfits together instead.  More fun for me that way :D

This weekend, we took a couple swings at H Ultraxion.  Not nearly as annoying as H Warlord Z.  That makes me want to curl up in a fetal position and cry.  I felt bad because my head wasn't in the game.  I kept trying to focus but my attention was immediately drawn to something else.  And I kept having a hard time with in game depth perception.  When we were doing the Hour of Twilight heroics I was really screwing up left and right.  When I was mage-ing it up, my DPS was really awful.  When I was healing, I just kept spamming heals because I couldn't handle the way things were moving.

It got worse when we went to do Firelands on Sunday.  Drives me crazy when I can't tell where things are.  Go go, standing in the fire!  I spent all day Sunday working on either my warrior's blacksmithing or farming for my round 2 transmog set.  (Because I'm on a new server and ZOMG I NEED CRAFTERS.  Or something OCD like that.)  My warrior's blacksmithing is at 200 right now, so yay.  I can go back out and start leveling again.  She's level 50 now.  I don't know where she was when I left her.  (EDIT: Apparently 48.)

Anyway.  I realized I didn't cap my guild exp last week so now I'm behind the husband.  :( Booooo.  I did get capped last night so yay there.  Halfway to exalted (I think).

And now, I must get to work.  It's been quiet the last few days.  Which is very nice but I think it's going to pick up now.  So, I will leave you with a picture of my office cat.  Who was asleep but the second I started moving around did this:

Happy Monday!

    Seriously though, you sent cups to a relatively new friend. That's pretty awesome. It's kindness like that which I return in kind, and with steadfast loyalty.

    Believe it or not, the outfits are already coming in! I'm intrigued to see yours as well. Sorry I passed on Mags yesterday, but Saintvache is now 75! I might catch you hardcore folk before Mists launches, lol.

    So, I am to ask you about your Magtheridon run.

    And congrats, by the way, and lovely blog! So glad I stopped by!
