Dare I say it?

I had an even better night in Kara than I did last week. It’s costing me a lot in gems and enchants, but it is absolutely worth it. Once again- best guildies ever. We’ve got some people coming up who are fabulous. They’re dedicated players and they pay attention and catch on quick. Our new warrior (who has 5 level 70s and hadn’t really been in a guild before I ran Shadow Lab with him in a PUG and encouraged him to talk to our gm about joining us) got himself both Kara t4 pieces tonight. I rolled against him for the helm, but I’m glad he got it. Our new shammy healer is also pretty great, and very helpful. It was also nice to run again with one of our older members who’s been on less often for a while with RL stuff.

After being wipe-free (aside from a bad trash pull) on Thursday night, and one-shotting every boss until Shade tonight, we had terrible, terrible infernal drops during Prince- which we never have. It was worth it though. Our humble and amusing hunter got Sunfury, our new Shammy got the Jade Ring of the Everliving, and our new warrior got his t4 helm.

I also scrounged together enough badges to get the Gnarled Ironwood Pauldrons, which look wicked cool.

What I’m most excited about is my new Be Imba status. Last week, it was telling me I could handle the end of Kara, and I still had some upgrades mid-kara. Today, I’m ready for the beginning of TK and SSC, and I’ve got upgrades in Mag and Gruul’s. I’m certainly not actually ready for TK and SSC, and I’m not even certain that I’m really ready for Mag and Gruul’s, but it’s nice to know that I’ve got the gear to perform well, as long as I’ve got the talent.

Also, Blog question: How can I get thott/wowhead links to show the item specs when you roll over it? I know nothing about CSS and very little about coding and formatting in general. I dabbled in HTML years ago, but have forgotten much of what I had learned.

We’ve been running Kara since January (though not for progression for a while now), and after two and a half hours, we got Nightbane. I had unbelievable luck, and I’ll leave it at that.

Life is unbelievably crazy right now, so I haven’t had as much time to blog as I’d like. Unfortunately it doesn’t look like things will slow down much anytime soon. So meaningful, helpful blog posts will be fewer and farther between.

Adieu, Debricashi/Olstumpy

Well, after a third hack my fiance is quitting World of Warcraft. At very least until he gets a new computer, but probably indefinitely. It’s going to be really weird for me, since Olstumpy was my reliable tank and enchanter. I always sent him my crummy green drops to disenchant. I’m going to miss Debricashi and his PoliceCatHQ in kara.

This brings up another important point: Gold Sellers and Gold buyers are appalling. If you buy gold, you are just as bad as the gold sellers who hack into other player’s accounts. If there were not people buying as much gold as they are, gold sellers would not be hacking into other players’ accounts. Gold sellers are not out there farming gold like anyone seriously working toward their epic flying mount. Gold sellers are making and distributing keyloggers to exploit honest players, stealing all their gold, vendoring all their items, and leaving them naked in the bank. The third time this happened to my fiance, Olstumpy was even moved to another server.

It’s also worth noting that neither Norton 360, AdAware, nor Spybot S&D shows anything suspicious at all.
