New background

Thank you, Jessica (Yochi), for making this amazing background! Check out her work on DeviantArt.

I got it through this post on MMO-Champion where you can put up a request for a forum signature, wallpaper, Twitch overlay or whatever you might wish and you might be lucky enough to get something as great as this done by one of the many awesome artists there.

I loved my old background but I’ve wanted something new and updated since we got the new character models. Thought it was a good idea have both my druid and shaman on it because I they are my favorite characters.

Winter Veil and New Year

MerryXmas2

Happy new year! I hope you had a great Winter Veil and Christmas and I wish you the best for the new year!

I haven’t had anything to write about lately because I haven’t played very much. The guild decided to take a break till after new year. I’m not sure if I’ll go back to raiding after the holidays because I’m tired of doing the same bosses over and over again. At the moment I’m having trouble finding anything in WoW that I want to do, so I might just have a small break till I find it fun again. I wish Legion was closer. I have played a lot of StarCraft 2 lately which has been very fun and I might try Heroes of the Storm soon.

Latest additions to my pet and mount collection

I’ve gotten some new pets and mounts this patch. Some I got a while back, some just recently. The pups are adorable but I don’t do a lot of pet battles these days so I just use them for companions. My favorite mount is the Corrupted Dreadwing because I like the colors it has but I think it moves a bit weird.

I can’t believe it’s been 5 years since I created this blog. When I started up all I wanted was a place to share some screenshots and I never thought I’d still be posting on it 5 years later.

Thanks to everyone who visits, reads, follows, shares and comments! It wouldn’t have been this fun without you <3

Exploring Tanaan Jungle and 6.2

WoWScrnShot_062515_030325

I didn’t really know what to expect when I reactivated my account for patch 6.2 because I wasn’t planning to raid, still don’t have a real guild to call home or a team to play rated battlegrounds with. But I have my boyfriend and some other friends who I play with. I think having someone to play with makes the game so much more fun. I never read about the patch, so almost everything was new for me when I logged in on patch day.

I built the shipyard and went to Tanaan Jungle. It was fun to have a whole new zone to explore, quests to do and treasures to find. I’m trying to do the daily quests every day but I don’t always have time for it but I’m sure I’ll reach revered with the three factions eventually. Besides the reputation I still have left to do some bonus objectives and some quests in Nagrand to complete the Draenor Pathfinder (flying) achievement.

I haven’t killed any bosses in Hellfire Citadel yet. But I raided Blackrock Foundry heroic on my resto shaman last week and it was actually a bit fun. Not so fun that I would like to start raiding again, but I could maybe raid casual once per week with friends. So maybe we’ll go for some of the new bosses next time.

I’ve geared up my druid in Ashran which was very fast and easy. First we just killed rare mobs for fragments which we turned in and got tons of honor to buy gear. Then we did the events and boss kill for Conquest and boxes. Maybe I’ll gear up my shaman next.

What have you done so far in 6.2?
