The new patch is almost here and to be honest I haven’t had much time to read about it yet but hopefully I’ll get some time to read up on the new bosses before our first raid in Throne of Thunder. I’ve been so busy with my life cause there is a lot new going on at the moment, and I’ve just had time enough to raid two to three times a week.
I missed a lot of first kills in heroic Heart of Fear and a few in heroic Mogu’shan Vaults, but this month our focus has been on heroic modes in Terrace of Endless Spring and I finally got to be there on our first kills of Protectors, Tsulong and Lei Shi. Protectors was my favorite of those three, Lei Shi is kinda annoying and Tsulong is a bit boring, but it was still fun to progress on them. I’m proud of my guild and our progress this tier, they/we’ve done very well and I’m looking forward to see how we’ll do in the new raid.
But raiding with a 25 man guild isn’t just happiness and fun, not always. Because there are 25 people or more there are so many different personalities, people with different thoughts on how to do things and how serious and hardcore we should be, how we should react when people fail etc. It’s usually not a lot of drama or arguing on vent and in guild chat, but some people have a tendency to throw out rude and unnecessary comments when others do something wrong, fail, forget or misunderstand. I do not like that, cause it ruins the mood and I don’t feel like raiding anymore, at least not with people like that. I want us all to be friends and try to say things in a good and helping way even if people fail, cause yelling and complaining won’t help them to better. Now I make it sound like it’s really bad and happens a lot which it doesn’t, but it’s still enough for me.
I wonder how other guilds deal with stuff like this.
Matty is hosting a movie themed transmog contest in honor of the Oscars and to celebrate her birthday February 24th, happy birthday, Matty!
Submit three mog outfits, (Mogit is fine) of three characters from one of your favorite movies, or from one of the award nominees this year. This is not their Oscar or red carpet attire, but the costumes in the films.
I’m not much of a transmogger and I’ve never participated in a transmog contest before but I’ve always wanted to, so I thought I’d give it a try to see what I could come up with. This is actually the first time I’ve tried to create a transmog outfit from a movie and it was harder than I thought and it took a while before I found something I was happy with.
I watch a lot of movies and there are so many great and fun characters but my choice fell on Star Wars cause I love all the movies and I’m very excited about the new movie they’re planning to do. I wasn’t sure which characters to choose at first cause some of them got very unique armor and clothing which is hard to find in the game, so they might not look exactly the same but I hope most of you will see which characters I was trying to create.
Jawas are 1 meter tall scavengers in the deserts of Tatooine. They are easily identifiable by their brown hooded robes and glowing eyes. I’ve always liked the Jawas cause they look cute and funny, but I know that underneat their cloaks they’re not so cute after all. One day I’ll buy a jawa costume.

And I just have to share this with you :D
Lou Lou is a panda cub located near the portal to Pandaria in Orgrimmar. The Alliance counterpart is Meng Meng who can be found near the Pandaria portal in Stormwind. They usually walk around, sit and rest or sleep. But if you /hug, /love, or /pat at them, hearts will appear above their heads and they’ll give you a Magic Bamboo Shoot. This is a unique item which turns you into a panda cub for 10 minutes.
You can cast spells and attack but some say the buff disappears if you take damage.
This might be old news but I didn’t know untill I saw a hunter running around as a panda earlier today and I looked up his buff on Wowhead. But I thought it was fun and wanted to share it with you just in case you didn’t know either.
We all have our favorite classes, and sometimes, even with our favorites we wish they had just a little something more. Like another skill that would be super cool and perfect to our class. Like for my Shaman, I think I should have more elementals.
If you could have another skill or two for your class, what would it be?
I’ve seen people call balance druids many different things. Moonkin, boomkin, oomkin, doomkin, owl, laserowl, lazerchicken, chicken, bird etc. We’re feather coated with wing-like arms, but our body is big and heavy, and the wings are too small and weak to lift us. But we do actually have wings right? We should be able to fly! We might not be able to fly were long distances so I wouldn’t want moonkin form to be our flight form. I’m thinking more like levitate and slow fall. A spell which makes us able to fly or jump a short distance and slow fall. I know we don’t really need a slow fall to reduce fall damage cause we already got feline swiftness which you can glyph to work in all forms. And I know we got something similar, Wild Charge outside of forms. But it’s not exactly what I’m thinking and what I’d want.
Imagine like a mix of a heroic leap, slow fall and Wild Charge. A spell you can use to flap your wings and fly a few yards forwards so it looks like you’re actually flying a bit up and forwards like a chicken would do. You can also use it when jumping off a cliff to fly further or reduce fall damage. I know we don’t have the need for it now, but this has been an idea since I started playing a moonkin in TBC, and I’m very happy with what we’ve got right now.
There is another thing I wish we had. I know it won’t happen, cause it would just be way too sick, insane and too funny. It has just always been a funny thought and a thing people playing moonkin have said they wish they had. Lasers! I’ve no idea why people are calling moonkin laserowl/chicken etc, cause none of our spells look like lasers. I’ve always joked about it, moonkin with laser shooting out of their eyes, like the Beamos mobs from Zelda Ocarina of Time or the laser shooting statues in Zelda the Wind Waker. Those mobs were always a bit frightening cause I was afraid of getting hit by them and they made this unique sound when they shot at you. I imagine a moonkin with a laser like that, I know it might sound very silly, but it would have been kinda cool.
As you might have read here already I’ve been away from raiding for a month from mid December to mid January. At first I missed it and then it felt really nice not to have to worry about the days, what time it is, gear, pots, flasks etc. But I started missing it again after a while. I got back two weeks ago and started raiding again. Everyone had much better gear than me now as they’ve killed quite a few new heroic bosses while I was gone, but I think I performed very well despite my gear being worse than others and not knowing all the tactics as good as them.
It felt nice to be back and progress on Imperial Vizier Zor’lok and Lei Shi. We killed Imperial January 29. and Lei Shi February 5th. Imperial was hard at first cause it took us a while to figure out which tactics worked best for us and for people to learn how to avoid all the rings. Lei Shi was challenging cause of the adds which spawns and how to control them.
I think we’ve done really good this patch, progress wise. Maybe a bit slow in the start, but we picked it up and now we’re realm 5 but we’ve killed 1 more boss than the 4th guild.
We’re not doing Mogu’shan Vaults anymore cause we’re trying to focus on clearing Heart of Fear heroic, only the final boss left. So we decided to make a group for Mogu’shan 10 man heroic, but as usual we’re missing tanks. Plenty of dps and healers. People still need gear from that raid, including me. I just wish people had more time to help, especially tanks, but I guess we can’t really expect anyone to have time on off days. But hopefully we’ll get a good group together every week so people can get their BiS gear.
