Got to enjoy my first night in Naxx yesterday :D We downed Anub'Rekhan pretty quickly (he dropped Desecrated Bindings and Band of Unanswered Prayers) and then went on to try Instructor Razuvious. We got him down to maybe 60%? Our priests were still getting the whole MC thing down. Both encounters were a LOT of fun though. I have a particular love for Instructor, since the premise of the fight is awesome (priest's MC tanks? that's so cool) and in addition, it's very rare that I'll take a durability hit because you can run out of the area to reset him :D

Anyway, it was a lot of fun. I'll post some screenshots later :D

Also, at Onyxia earlier in the evening, my druid got her Stormrage Cover :D

I need to go take a shower and get ready for class, but I'll write about real life stuff and the rest of yesterday later!

Woot!!

Eeeee :DDDD

I just won Ashjre'thul, Crossbow of Smiting :DDDD

I can't wait to put a +7 dmg scope on it :D

FINALLY replaced my leafy bow after so long!!!

I was going to blow it on Ouro's gun, but the crossbow dropped first :) And, best of all, my gun skill STILL won't have to rise above 1 :D I already have 300 crossbows because I used Bloodseeker for months before I got my Rhok'delar.

I came home early from game club because I was bored. It totally paid off :P

Had a fun time raiding tonight on Ceres :)

We zoomed straight to Ouro! Nothing dropped that I was interested in (barb of the sand reaver, but I JUST got a Doom's Edge last night so I passed) but I did hit neutral with the good ol' bronze dragons and so I attained a sexy ring :) In exchange for potions, Tendermuffin is going to help me farm some heavy silithid carapaces of which I need 4-5 for my Nature Resistance gear so I stop feeling like a noob being in the top 15 with only 183 buffed NR. I do miss raiding with Chris though, it was a lot more fun when he took part with me in all this stuff. Maybe someday again.

Don't really have much to say. Tired, a little bit hungry, and I need to get to bed :) meeting at work in the morning and paycheck pickup time! Whoo :D

I keep trying to think of something else to write about, but there isn't much. I've been watching Battlestar Galactica with Shane and Chris (Shane owns the dvds) and I really like it so far. I am super excited for House and Scrubs to start up again too... damn you TV, why must parts of you be good?
ayashi: (Ceres Moon)
Real life stuff~ today was fun :D mom and dad came over around 4:30 and Chris and I went to Holy Smokes with them, Tony, and Jared :D It was super tasty! Regrettably they were out of pulled pork :( but the pulled beef was still super delicious.

I played WoW and The Sims a lot today. I bought the Open for Business pack :D I do like it but I haven't had much time to experiment. I thought my second generation Legacy family sims were going to die together in the photo booth because it bugged and they were both stuck inside slowly starving to death :( but I used the move_objects cheat to delete the photo booth, and the two of them magically appeared in the middle of the house :D so yay!

I've also been reading the Lemony Snicket boots since I bought the last pack of 3 books the other day :) I just started The Grim Grotto. I love these books SO much but I wish they weren't all so short! The books are very expensive and if they were not as good as they are there is no way I'd pay as much for so little content :P the pages are thick, the text size is large, books just aren't very long :(

I don't know what else to write about D: things have been pretty boring. Chris is programming a lot and every time I try to tell him something I get those blank replies where I know he has no idea what I'm saying :P

At the very least I have nothing halfway interesting to say about how things have been, so I am going to end the post with some WoW crap.

WoW stuff~ Shaeldre still doesn't have her 45-minute baron done, but we haven't been able to do it in a while anyway. Hixxy is often leveling her warlock on Akama or working, so I don't know when I will finish it ^^; for now I am going to continue the chain a bit on my mage! She is 7/8 Magister's right now (missing robes still!) and just needs 6 more ogre beads to keep going :D I'm very excited to upgrade her boots/legs/shoulders, although I'm not sure I'll wear the shoulders (depends if the set bonus overrules wearing Thuzadin Mantle or not).

I went to my first MC on my druid and got pissed off because every time one of my heals landed, someone ELSE'S heal landed about .1 seconds earlier so I couldn't cancel and I overhealed for 1000! AU doesn't have a very organized method of healing though like Astrum does, which I think is part of the problem. We just heal whoever whenever whereever, whereas Astrum has you heal group members, then focus on the two groups around your own, so you don't need to stare at 40 names all the time.

I'm very excited for the new 25-man raid cap for instances. It'll make things much more manageable (maybe DotA can do it by then :D) and I very much enjoy the feel of the smaller instances (I do not like ZG but AQ-20 is REALLY fun up until post-Moam trash mobs).

I don't really have much to say here... I played WoW a lot today.

Umm... I did beat Trauma Center :D I just have the "Extra Missions" left to do (which seem impossible, I can't get through the first one at ALL). The last "boss" (surgery really :P) was really weird. It seemed IMPOSSIBLE and I tried it over and over and finally got frustrated and put it down. Then I picked it up while I was waiting for Digital Media: Still Image to start wednesday morning, and just... bam. Did it. First try. I both like and hate stuff that happens like that, haha.

Almost finished putting stuff away. Still have some boxes in the living room. Chris and I did rotate the bed so I think there's a lot more room, and we moved the lamp to the other end of the room so it can be controlled by the light switch.

Lily was going crazy today (as usual). She found a strip of cardboard and meowed at us... a LOT. She walked into our room and meowed and played with her cardboard thingy. Then went into Tom and Shane's room and did the same thing! She is absolutely nuts :p

I got to do AQ-20 full-through today on Ceres, although I wasn't expecting to. It was really fun! The bosses are sooo cool and unique. I really want my cenarion circle rep to get my cool epic axe!! I'm not a big fan of ZG but I do think I will end up farming AQ for all that it's worth :) Retcha inspected Ceres Thursday night in Blackwing Lair and suddenly realized I was decked out. I have awesome epics in every slot except melee weapons (and I could choose to use my epic stuff, I just choose not to because dual wielding the blue axes is better for dps) and trinkets. I'm not really sure what he thought I had before though, since he knew I was almost done with Giantstalker, knew I had my epic quest done, and I think he was there the night I spent 22 dkp on the Band of Accuria :p

Sooooo update!

Yesterday Chris and I went to the movies :D We saw Memoirs of a Geisha... I really liked it. The thing I liked about it least was actually that it was in English. I think that took away from part of the movie, because hearing the heavy accents on the English words seemed strange... it was not a movie about Japanese girls who had come to America, it was a movie about Japanese girls in Japan, so hearing them speak English as they were was strange. I don't know why I noticed it so much in that movie than others. I guess part of it was because they still interjected some Japanese words in their sentences... I would have much preferred a movie in Japanese with subtitles :P But, aside from that (which really isn't a big deal at all, just a minor annoyance) I loved it.

I forget if I mentioned, but we are moving in to the new apartment on Friday. I can't wait. Our new room looks SO SMALL even though technically we gained 2 square feet. Then again I think the room we are in now looked very small until we somehow shoved all this crap in here :) It will be a fun time trying to do that again, haha! And it'll also be great to get that dining room table out of Chris' car since it has been in there for over a week now.

Rich came today, Lily wasn't sure what to think of him. She ran away from him but did NOT hide under the bed as usual. Instead she sat on the bed and watched him. She was ready to bolt at any second but was much better than she has been with any other company. I think it helped that he is much quieter than Tom or Shane. I hope Lily warms up to Tom and Shane quickly too (but hopefully not too much to Shane, I think he may be slightly allergic to cats). Not that she "warmed up" to Rich but she was much less scared of him than any other company thus far.

Anyway I don't have much to write about.

A little bit of WoW stuff )

Welll Lily is having a blast here and I'm really happy :) Whenever she's hungry she just nags me by meowing and being generally annoying... she's so cute :)

I'm taking care of Kyorei's bunny for a week, he's really cute! He's so soft to the touch :)

Today I went to work for a few hours and got some stuff done, I'm going in again on Thursday to finish up.

I'm halfway through The Carnivorous Carnival in Lemony Snicket's A Series of Unfortunate Events. It's really good... I love these books :) I need to get the next 3-book set, and then I think there's only one book left! Oh no :( (I think I can manage ^^)

WoW stuff
----
I went to MC last night on Ceres. I got my Giantstalker's Belt :) Yay! 5/8 set pieces now, and I got my 5 piece bonus.

I'm really looking forward to the servers coming up. I hope I hit Knight-Lieutenant :D That means I'd get two pieces of my PvP set (gloves and boots). I want the robes the most, but I get those next rank at Knight-Captain. The journey to my 90g epic mount is going slowly but surely. Yay!

This is a World of Warcraft post, sorry :P

Ceres went to BWL for the first time yesterday :) )

Warning, this is a pretty big file. It looked much more manageable on my monitor but my resolution is really high. Now I'm at school and it looks huge.

However I want to post it anyway because Ceres and Sionell are really cute :) Erin and I each made our first characters completely on our own. But they both somehow managed to be twins ^^ the only difference between Ceres and Sionell are their levels and facial markings. Everything else is exactly the same... on accident.

My weekend

Oct. 31st, 2005 08:01 am
ayashi: (hippogryph)
This weekend I had a lot of fun. I didn't do that much work (I should have). I will have to try to make up for it tomorrow. Brian and Jared came over on saturday and we played some Soul Calibur III :) It was super fun. :D I didn't end up playing shadow of the colossus though :( and we should have played shadows of camelot! I wasn't thinking to suggest it :) On friday we went shopping and Brian came with us. We discovered that the SC3 strategy guide he got had a special edition! (and went back on sunday to trade the one we got in) Also got groceries which were a lot of money as usual but we shouldn't have to go for a while :)

Last night I got to raid and get DKP in the new loot system for the first time. We did Onyxia "with ease" (ok, there was only one resser up at the end, and I think only two healers... Kelsin and a paladin, haha! and hardly any dps) and then decided to try our hand at Emeriss (one of the four dragons recently added in the new patch). Tons of guilds had attempted him that day and all had given up. The best was 31%. We did REALLY well and got him down to 21% at our best. We were gearing up for our last attempt... and... server crash!! Yay! Server came back up... Emeriss was gone. One of our guildies logged onto his alt in ashenvale... and there he was. In Ashenvale. A lot of us called it a night then. Vodka had a go after us but I don't know if they ended up doing it.

Now of course they are attempting Emeriss tonight at 7:00... yep... when I'm at class! Damn you guys :(

I can't wait for this semester to be over. I don't know what it is with me. I don't like going to school that much anymore and I just have too much work at any given time. Very frustrating and undesireable.

Got the Mature Black Dragon Sinew from Onyxia last week (wednesday night) :D
ayashi: (Default)
Tonight the Aegis Order on the Mannoroth server killed Ragnaros for the first time ever. 29% before he submerged for the first Sons.

Loot:
Choker of the Firelord
Dragonstalker Legguards (x2)
Onslaught Girdle

Thursday night, I received my Ancient Petrified Leaf! Screenies of some of the demons below the cut (I was way too excited and missed some :/) Also screenshots of Ragnaros!


How cool is this mount? This is the first time I've seen it. Yes, that's an Orc.

Summary: I received the Hunter Epic quest thursday night. None of the demons were up. Friday morning they were, and I worked between 9am and 12pm with my boyfriend (a druid) as my only buffer. I killed all 4 of them. However I do not yet have the Black Dragon Sinew required to make the bow, and Onyxia was stingy (as she ALWAYS IS when I'm present) and didn't drop it. After two days of farming, my guild downed Ragnaros for the first time. I <3 my guild.

I very much regret not taking more screenshots while fighting the demons. However I was soo excited I didn't really think about it :(

Screenshots of Demons/Ragnaros and a Story! )
ayashi: (ceres blue)
Just finished doing my object animation assignment for Fundamentals of animation. I think I made a really cute story. I used one of those cute little sand-filled frog thingies that used to be popular way back in the day :P and a tamagotchi toy from Burger King or McDonald's or something. The tamagotchi rescued the froggie from this cage of coins, and then the tamagotchi was taken away by a paperclip, but he wrestled himself free, and the froggie and tamagotchi are best of friends... in 10 seconds. I had a lot of fun, but the room is cold and my hands feel very stiff now :(

In the OIT lab in the Fine Arts Center right now, going to head over to Computer Science eventually though. Gotta meet Chris and then I get to leave... yay!

Tonight in WoW we are going to kill Domo and attempt Ragnaros. I'm very excited because the Leaf might drop!! I really want to get started :D And I'll receive my quiver right away since I have the blue dragon sinew...! I really hope we make some progress on Ragnaros tonight. I haven't seen an attempt on him since hunters were buffed, and I at least see a HUGE difference in DPS. We have 5-7 hunters every raid, so it'll help a lot!

Aegis Order is so very fun <3 The hunters did a couple of fun things last night in MC, we did Aimed Shot wars during Golemagg (to see who could get the highest aimed shot crit - Thrin won with 2180something I think, though I was close behind with 2040something -- I blame the fact that I was using Bloodseeker and Thrin was using Rhok'Delar... :P *cough*) and during Sulfuron we all coordinated our timers (devilsaur eye for those that have it, and rapid fire). It was awesome seeing Sulfuron's HP drop so fast when we did that... fun times :D

Last night Chris and I watched some of The Princess Diaries 2. I am very annoyed that it is not the same boyfriend. That makes the first movie pretty pointless.

I just coughed and its so quiet in here :( kind of embarassing.

Okay time for me to go to Comp Sci :D I'll read my book until Chris is done with his thingy ^_^
ayashi: (Default)
soo this morning I got a whisper in-game from Mysha in Macabre. (I found out later that Mysha is an ex-member of Aegis Order.) They were doing pickup azuregos. Hmmm... :) So I joined along with Mavryk who also is in Aegis Order. They took a while to do summons (I was going on my way anyways and was summoned when I was nearly there... but whatever :P) and then we started fighting him :D I lasted a good deal of the fight without dying, and... I won the mature blue dragon sinew! So now I have a component of the hunter epic quest :)

Now I need to study for the test I have in art soon. I feel much better than I did yesterday but still not 100%, probably not even 70%, but at least 60.

Now I need to eat... and also study for my test! :P
ayashi: (Default)
Had a pretty good weekend... friday we played WoW (ugh, hardly any progression in MC... we started around 8 and finished Magmadar at 12:30. MAGMADAR!).

Saturday played a little bit of WoW then around 2:00 went to Corey's apartment at Sugarloaf Estates for a BBQ ^_^ It was really fun! While waiting for others to arrive we watched some Family Guy, including The Family Guy Movie that I never knew existed. Pretty much more of the same, it felt like 3 episodes that only barely associated with one another :P

I met Tarik's girlfriend, Christina (I think that was her name anyway, though I'm not sure if that's how she spells it). She apparently plays WoW on the Lothar server, and she's a hunter (with a priest alt) :) Tarik is a warrior and we talked about Molten Core and tons of other little things. It was cool actually meeting another girl that plays WoW (rather than just talking to them online and whatnot, which of course is always great ^_^).

Also, there is a kitten in Corey + Natasha's apartment. Oh yes, a kitten. Named Kilala. Sooo CUTE! Just made me miss having pets at the apartment even more :( I can't wait to live in a place that allows pets. I miss them so much.

Anyway, we ate eventually, then others left to go see The Brothers Grimm (which I heard sucked) and Chris and I went home. We went to MC again (and accomplished nothing, we wiped 3 times at Gehennes... sigh). Then went to bed.

MC details last night )

This post is completely about World of Warcraft so I'm going to save you 3 minutes of your life and just say you can skip this entry over... :P

Well Voice dinged 40 late last night (around 1-2am) after which I eagerly rushed to Darnassus.

I am slightly annoyed, I mentioned something about leveling quickly (one of my friends on the server I think feels like less of a man because a girl is leveling faster than him, even though I try over and over to explain that I have multiple high level characters and I know the quests a lot better than people who only have 1 higher level char like he does). Anyway I mentioned that and someone in my guild goes "Yeah that's because girls have an easier time getting help with quests." Yes... because that's what I do, I say "hay guys ima gurl, can u help me w/ quest plz". I've soloed almost the entire game outside of instances, I am not leveling faster because I have an easier time getting help :P Most people either never found out I was a girl or didn't find out until long after we had grouped together (for mutual help too, not getting level 60s to quest for me).

Anyway that was annoying :( but I'm very happy that my priest is quickly zooming up in level. I might take a break with her for a bit to let Chris catch up :) might either play my druid on proudmoore or my warrior on Stormrage (my first character there was a warrior actually, then I made a priest and kind of ran away with her... hehe)

Tried to do MC last night but I got really annoyed because we had a near wipe once (the 2nd firelord pull...), we only had 30 people... people ran out of the instance to avoid dying, I feigned, then people tried to zone back in and were getting a new instance. Okay, so we start again. We did the first pull... we were moving soo slowly... I was getting really annoyed... got to the 2nd firelord pull... server crashed. I apologized and said I really wasn't in the mood to start over again and went to help Tyris farm for his Eye of Shadow for a while. People started asking Chris and I to go back and help with MC some more an hour or so later but I apologized again, I felt really bad but Cata (whose opinion matters the most as he is practically the guild leader, and is another officer) completely understood and said there was no problem with us leaving, especially since it wasn't even a scheduled night (they were just trying to attempt it). I feel bad if they didn't get very far because we weren't there, but there weren't any signups and we didn't want to deal with it, so... >_<

Picture of Voice on her mount! )

Got Dragonstalkers Helmet today from Onyxia. Nice. :)

Now I am going to go watch Buffy. Tried to help Tyris with getting his Eye of Shadow... holy crap. We need a full 5-man group. Why is Eye of Shadow so much harder to get than either Black or Blue dragon sinew? Black is a 10%ish drop off Onyxia and blue drops from Azuregos (just like shadow from Kazzak) or the elite dragons in winterspring. Winterspring dragons are MUCH easier than those demons... wow. Tyris went OOM so fast it was crazy T_T
ayashi: (Default)
Sooo Ceres got a Quick Strike Ring last night. Yes, that's right! With a beautiful mix of Quick Strike Ring + Don Julio's Band from AV, I will be the unstoppable Ceres! Those are probably the two best crit/atk power/stam rings in the game. At the least they are the best that *I* know of. And both are unique so I can't have two :)

I sold my Magni's Will ring last night. What! I didn't expect that would happen for a while XD so now I have two epics. And, if only 3 hunters come tonight like only 3 came last night, and the leaf drops... AHH! I really really hope I get it. You guys have no idea how much I want that bow. I would pass on 3 weeks of full giantstalkers if I knew I could have that bow soon. T_T I still don't have the sinew... but Kieph already has blastershot, I think Pinpoint wants Blastershot, and I'm positive that if the quest DID drop and I won it they would have the sinew default to me. Geez I want that bow so badly XD

Now I'm all excited for tonight :O Playing my priest at the moment, halfway to 35, having a lot of fun! :)
