March Madness

After a very, VERY long run, my shaman has finally managed to jump on the crazy train.  And I am so glad it's over.  I will no longer have to scour the AH on a daily basis for cards to complete decks that can only be turned in for rep seven days out of the month to a side faction that NO ONE gets exalted with...unless they're, you know, insane.  I will sell the leftover cards in my possession for large sums of gold (the only people who will buy them will be others trying to get on the train...and they'll pay handsomely for the opportunity to get these cards whilst knowing they are being gouged).  With my ill gotten gains I will purchase crazy-expensive things like Vial of the Sands and maybe take up belly-dancing.

There are a few people who really helped me along the way and they need to have a big round of applause and thanks.  Without their generosity I'd probably still be in Bedlam, whimpering in the corner of a padded cell.

Thanks Blizz, for making our toons do badass poses on the character list screen, but do you think you could fix the bug that makes it look like they're wearing their guild tabbard when no tabbard is equipped?  It's hard to give off that "I will kill you dead with my pointy axe!" vibe when your guild happens to think it's funny to have a pink tabbard with a bunny on it.  kthnx.

So my push for insanity is nearing a close, and I can tell you that it's none to soon.  I feel like a lifeless drone.  The only two reps I have to complete are for Ravenholdt and Darkmoon Faire.  

Ravenholdt:  Revered 13124/21000
Darkmoon Faire:  Honored 800/12000

I'll have Ravenholdt done by the end of this week.  My baby rogue can pick-pocket mobs in Tyr's Hand without being spotted (unless I'm a noob and right-click on the mob) so I didn't have to level her further in order for her to benefit my main.  That's not to say that she'll stay at 60, but for the time being I'm going to abuse her for her pick-pocketing abilities.

Darkmoon Faire and I should be ok....once I stop crying in the corner thinking about all the decks I'll need to make and turn in to finish rep with them.  Hey, I don't have a lot of gold so buying higher decks is out of the question and I don't plan on having a lot of gold in the near future so my only alternative is to make the cards and decks myself.  It's going to hurt.

*Thanks to Emily for the Chinese translation of "Are you crazy?"....and for the cocoa roasted almonds, omg, I drool

Darkmoon Faire: Friendly (3225/6000) (can't do anything about this until 10/3)

Non Compos Mentis

When we last joined our heroine, she was diligently plowing her way through Dire Maul over and over and over again.  And then, just for kicks, she ran it again and again.  Crazy, you say? No, folks, not crazy, she's heading toward insane.

Rep Update:
Bloodsail Buccaneers: Honored (this one is still done)
Darkmoon Faire: Friendly (3225/6000)
Ravenholdt: Honored (6240/12000)
Shen'dralar: Exalted (yeah baby, this one is done!)
Booty Bay: Exalted (up yours dire maul!!)
Everlook: Exalted (ditto)
Gadgetzan: Exalted (xerox)
Ratchet: Exalted
(reasonable facsimile)

What really got my panties in a bunch during the last runs through DM was that I had not one, not two, not three, hell...not even four, but TEN pristine black diamonds drop. And I didn't need a single one of them *fume*.  Oh, and to top it ALL off, I had no less than 21 librams drop as well.  

I swear there are days I think I'm cursed.

Check Your Sanity

I've finally gone back to working on my insane title in WoW after the slight distraction of leveling a warlock to 80. She's ultra cute and has minions, what's not to love?

As part of my work on the title I have also started leveling my own rogue (see above). In order to get Ravenholdt rep up to exalted I'll need to turn in something like 1400 heavy junkboxes....boxes only obtainable by pick-pocketing rogues. And since I didn't see anyway I could convince Alex to farm all of those for me on his rogue, I made my own. She's level 40 at the moment and moving up fast. That's because she has massive amounts of BoA gear and can kill mobs around 4 levels above her own without much trouble.

As for the other reps, here's the latest:
Bloodsail Buccaneers: Honored (this one is still done)
Darkmoon Faire: Friendly (2775/6000)
Ravenholdt: Honored (2305/12000)
Shen'dralar: Revered (19000/21000) (four more turn ins until exalted)
Booty Bay: Honored (222/12000)
Everlook: Honored (97/12000)
Gadgetzan: Revered (9982/21000)
Ratchet: Honored (360/12000)

Insane, Now With More Mount

There are some sweet benefits to working on Insane. One of those is Baron Rivendare's Deathcharger. See, part of working on the title requires that you pick up Frayed Abomination Stitchings, which are soulbound (they are bound to the character that loots them), because they are part of the mats needed for Libram of Protection turn ins for Shendra'lar rep (say that three times fast). These things only drop in Old Stratholme and only off of the abominations in front of Baron Rivendare's quarters. Back in the old days it was kind of difficult to get to Baron before the 45 minute timer ran out and he skiddadled. Nowadays at level 80 you can one-man the instance and, even if you kill all the mobs and other bosses, make it to Baron with time to spare. Which is fantastic because one of the things that can drop off of him is his deathcharger. Granted, it only has a 1% drop rate, but when you compare that to other rare mounts in the game, that's pretty damn good. And I got it last week. It was a bittersweet moment since I was elated for myself and sad for Gaz and Bluey who have been farming for this mount since they ran Stratholme back in Vanilla.

Bloodsail Buccaneers: Honored (this one is still done)
Darkmoon Faire: Friendly (can't work on this one again until next tomorrow)
Ravenholdt: Friendly (haven't worked on this one for a while)
Shen'dralar: Revered (1500/21000)
Booty Bay: Hostile (710/3000)
Everlook: Hostile (710/3000)
Gadgetzan: Honored (7557/12000)
Ratchet: Hostile (973/3000)

Insanity Update

I've made some progress for the Insane achievement:
Bloodsail Buccaneers: Honored (this one is done)
Darkmoon Faire: Friendly
Ravenholdt: Friendly
Shen'dralar: Honored
Booty Bay: Hated
Everlook: Hated
Gadgetzan: Honored
Ratchet: Hated

And I'm really sick of running Dire Maul North >.< I've been going out and killing the pirates in Lost Rigger Cove for goblin rep in between runs of DM. That's how Gadgetzan ended up further along than any of the other goblin factions.

WoW Introduction

My main toon, Sephestra, a level 80 enhancement shaman. I raid with my guild, Bleach, on the US Azjol-Nerub server. We're pretty good and it's a lot fun. Right now we're working on 25 man Lich King in ICC and 10 man hardmode ICC.

And outside of raid I'm working on the Insane in the Membrane achievement....because I am an achievement whore. I can't lie, I love to see the little pop up when I get one. It's shiny and flashy and pretteh. (Yes, I change my toon's hairstyle based on the gear I get, why do you ask?) When I finish this achievement I'll get a very nice title, Sephestra the Insane, and a bunch of achievement points.

I'll tell you more about that later, for now just know that I enjoy playing WoW as much as I enjoy cooking. And that's saying something.
