There were a boatload of April fools day posts this week, which I basically ignored. I’m just not a fan of the whole “omg I’m quitting blogging and switching faction or playing the Hello Kitty MMO” type thing. It’s been done to death. I did enjoy the Tuskarr armory stunt from Blizzard, but most other pranks left me shaking my head with annoyance. I suppose I’m just not any fun.
Uncle Leo from DPS for Dummies reminds rogues of a useful ability of ours that can make our healers happy and keep us alive longer. He gives good tips about where to use Feint in on ICC fights.
The tale of Gerald the Articulate Kobold is absolutely brilliant. If you haven’t read it yet, you must. I would love to see more stories about other unappreciated WOW mobs. Perhaps a Trogg tale, or a Quilboar one?
Noblegarden has arrived! Check out Jaedia’s Noblegarden guide at The Lazy Sniper. Kaelynn already has her Noblegarden acheivement, but I spent yesterday hunting for eggs on my baby mage. I wanted to get the Polymorph: Rabbit spell, even though I know she can’t use it until level 60. The polymorph tome alone was 100 chocolates. I found a nice little spot in Kharanos on the first fence that has 4 possible egg spawns, with a few in nearby trees that are also easily reachable. I got my 100 eggs in around an hour and a half. I’m not sure if it was my imagination but it seemed like there were less participants in the holiday this year. Last year it seemed like every single egg spawn point was camped and fought over.
Angelya of Revive and Rejuvenate is holding a blog egg hunting contest. Check out her site for more details and a list of the 45 blogs participating. Sadly I was too lazy to participate. Shame on me.
In The Game
Raiding went fairly well this week — we are now 5/12 in Icecrown with a few attempts at two other bosses under our belts. Professor Putricide’s ,”Good news everyone!” lines during the Rotface fight made me giggle every time. I love geeky pop-culture references. Our fearless raid leader told us that the key to fight was “Don’t Panic”, which is a great sentiment, but it left me wondering where my towel was.
I dabbled in LOTRO last week — a post on that will be coming shortly. I can say for certain that I won’t be quitting WOW to go play it exclusively, but it is fun to experiment.
