Our first attempt….

Well we headed to Kara Friday night! Our first 100% guild run raid of 10. It consisted of Autumnknight, Dreamofme, Laen, Tyiako, McTeague, Amy…well just look at our screenshots…=D No we didn’t get very far as it will take sometime for all of us to get used to these mobs. We had alot of issues with people breaking our traps and shackles…but we’ll get there. Loss of a tank and healer hurt us so we restarted Saturday night but having only 2 healers proved too much for us.

Saturday Night Fever Meeting

Lastnights guild meeting was a rehash over the following topics. Karazahn, Guild Bank, Ranks & Promotions, Addons and the vent server.

  • Once we get 10+ members Kara-zized we will have Fri and Sat nights designated for the runs. Fri @ 7pm ST (Server time) and Sat @ 6pm ST. We also decided going the master looter route and simply having the class roll for the loot.
  • Guild Bank is now changed to 1 item per tab per day. Meaning you can take out 1 item per day on each tab. Let’s hope people don’t take advantage of this. Please remember if you plan on using the bank you MUST deposit 5 gold.
  • Ventrilo server will be used in the very near future. I’ll post if we get a borrowed server or if we get our own.
  • Addons– The only way to do end game instancs you HAVE to have the threat meter addons and Deadly Boss Mods. There is no exceptions. Period. I will not (and others) not run with you if you do not have the add ons.
  • Any rank questions please see our forums and blog.

This weeks schedule for Kara attunement are Monday, Wed & Thurs Nights starting at 7-8pm ST.

Happy Valentines Day!

Oy vey the past week has been very…eventful. New direction on my career (aka looking for a new one). WoW has been nice to me in the ways of earning gold. Other than that we are aiming towards more of the guild getting Kara tuned. We have a scheduled meeting tomorrow night but I will change that to Saturday Night. I will be unavailable tomorrow night…=D Laen also made it safe and sound to Japan and has been on periodically this week, glad she made it and seems to be adjusting to the time change and new world.  Happy Valentines day everyone!

Keyman

Illustrious Hunters of OS have their 3rd Key Frag with the assistance of the dynamic duo of Amy and Autumn as well as the Mage known only as SHEEP!!! Gratz on a short run..took longer getting everyone there. And special thanks to Josh for opening the door with Windamar. We are that much close to a Full Guild Kara group. Nice work!

Click the Fish for the Full Story of  MCDeez Filet O’ Fish

But I do enjoy the plethora of Fish Sammich’s outright now. In fact I went to McDeez today for lunch and had 2 Fish O Filet at 1.50 ea. Alix mentioned that is her favorite and usually only item she orders from McDeez– she also used the adjective “smooth”  when describing the taste. I’d have to agree. I also had a Med Dr. Pepper. My lunch 1/2 hour consisted of the Drive-Thru, parking in our company parking lot trying to find a WiFi signal for my iPod iTouch *myself*. Which..Alix got for me for Christmas. Which..I love. Pocket Porn WiFi ftw.

Snow

It seems a 2001 Mazda Protegé can drive just fine in the midwestern snow and ice. Even with low profile tires. That’s not a good thing when you dreamt of staying home in a nice and toasty environment. Eating some Ramen Noodles later on, loggin in (*IF I could) leveling up some lowbie toon. Watch a couple HBO flix, taking a nap later on while you drift away watching the snow fall. See, to me thats a pretty good snow day. Instead, I drove nearly an hour to get here. Here being work. Here, where 75% of the staff DID stay home. More than half the art dept. are sleeping in right now. Bitter? No. Unhappy? Yes.  I’ll get some work done. Post on various forums. More work, read my bo..FUCK! I left my book at home…I read Alix a short story in bed lastnight and forgot to grab it before I left. Grrrr…

See, I used to smoke on my breaks. At 10 am and 3pm I’d go out and have a Basic 100 filter. This is my (our) 3rd time quitting and have been smoke free since Sept 11, 2007. Before that we (Alix and I) were smoke free for 6 months…then the time before that we went 18 months. Smoking killed my mother 18 months ago. Lung/Brain cancer. I watched her wither away. It is a terrible way to go. She smoked since she was 14 years old…she died at the age of 61. So…beside my mother and the obvious reasons for quitting…we quit. AND my breaks would be filled with Stephen King, Stephen Hawkings, Tom Clancy, John Grisham, James Patterson and the Magic the Gathering series. I tend to read 2 books a week. (work week) and prefer them to be more action packed vs. slow and building. So…umm..yah…I forgot my book so I will read one of my older ones today. (re-read).  The book I left at home was Stephen Kings short stories Night Shift.

Cable gods willing I can log in tonight and help my online brothers and sisters get ready for Karazahn and beyond. My luck with our internet has been very very very low.  I hope to get some dailies in and perhaps get my Chocolate Cake recipe for Wook. I think I’m only missing maybe 2-3 other recipes for cooking. In real life my menu recipes can be counted on both hands. No feet. I would LIKE to be a good cook, I want to make things, create edible art, make people burp and fart with smiles…instead I’ll settle for being good looking.

Talon King or Chicken Fingers?

By the way– click here for a hello from “Laen”. =D

Talon King Ikiss – we had a very successful run last-night with AutumnKnight, Dreamofme, Amyndrana, Alagorn and Dragnort. 4 squishies and a lump of fur. =D I think we all we’re a bit rusty the first 10 mins. A couple deaths and proper marks made the difference. We breezed through most of it until a bad pull of birds. Wow those things are annoying. 1200 damage knock back swoop. lol

We lost Dragnort 80% into the run (poor fella) but luckily there were 22 people online and most are DPS so we added a 3rd Mage to the group. 3 Sheeps? Yes, please. We are on Talon King and go thru the boss specials and proceed. On the first 15 seconds our new mage dies. Don’t think she made it to a pillar in time. =P Talon gets down to 60% when our other two mages go down…but not before they blow him up for about 49%. All that’s left standing is one badddd asss bear and me. With 80% mana leftover *thank god* Talon’s special is to do arcane and polymorph the 2nd threat listing (me). Whenever I can I heal *full* up Amy. I proceed to get Poly ever other time, healing me up nicely, thank you Talon! lolz After 5 mins– we 2 manned the King! Everyone gets their Key and he drops : Hallowed Trousers (which I “need” and Deathforge Girdle we have to DE. All in all a very nice run. Kudos to the guild!
