Life After Kit

so, as i mentioned in a previous post we had a had adopted a little kitten for a short time. Sadly, he has now moved on to his permanent home and it has upset me more than i thought it would. We only had him for a week, although it felt much more, and he certainly became a large part of our family. Sure, he was a pain in the arse, and he'd snap at your heals whenever you got up, but we loved him.

So yesterday was an emotional day, but ive got to try and put that at the back of my mind today, as the builders are in. See at the beginning of the month, our up stairs neighbours decided to block their toilet. Now usually this wouldnt have been a problem, but at the same time their overflow was broken. Basically this means that the toilet continued to fill, but with it being blocked the water had nowhere to go. Eventually it overflowed, and a little bit later we had it coming through our ceiling.

The damage of this was so significant that today, im have the whole bathroom ceiling torn down and a new one put up. As i right this the builders are banging away. I expect that any second now another neighbour will knock on the door to complain about the banging, and thats why i cant be upset about the cat, because i need to be on top of my game for today.

So, not one mention of wow in this post, maybe i'll do one of those later today.

I got the Beta blues!!

So for those of us that didn’t get into the beta, all we can do is wait for the ever-closer expansion to be released before we get our hands on the new content. Of course, this doesn’t prevent us from reading all about it. I don’t know about you guys but my reader is jam-packed full of ever evolving WOTLK news. Where possible, I try not to read these in to much depth, as i don’t want too many spoilers (and in any case I have plenty of [current] content to investigate / read about / write about).

Interestingly though I have already reserved a name for my death knight, its not very original and im sure I’ll take plenty of stick for picking it, but I think its pretty cool. That’s all im gonna say about that for now, and you’ll have to come back and visit me post wrath to find out how uber cool (geeky) I really am!

Talking of death knights though, has anyone had any thoughts on which race they are going to use? I’ll probably wait to see what gear looks good on what races before choosing, although at the moment im thinking of picking a dwarf, mainly as it’s the only race I don’t currently have an alt for. what about you?

Money Money Money...

Just a quick one about gold reserves really. At the moment I have two level 70’s and a 62 (im also working on a mage, but shes really small). Both my 70’s have normal flying mounts, but no epic… despite this I only have 13k gold…

I guess my question is, how much gold do you have, and how did you get it? I wheel and deal, but never really seem to get anywhere with my funds!

Basically I need a new herbie. Cavalla used to be a herbie pre-tbc but then she took up the fine art of tailoring, which I cant drop now, nor can I drop alchemy as that comes in handy for the transmutes.

Tayend is both a miner and jewel-crafter, cant really give either of those up at the moment.

Masahashi is a leatherworker, and [you guessed it] skinner. Now im tempted to give up leatherworking, but I cant really decide. From what I see on the AH there aren’t many boe hunter leatherworking patterns worth having, although raid content provides some good craftables….

I guess im in a situation whereby I have to make a decision between dropping leatherworking (or skinning) to take up herb’ing, or do I create another character and have them as a herby. I really wanted to get my hunter to 70 before wotlk, but I think im looking at an impossible task of getting him and another to 70 in the next 2-6 months….

What are peoples opinions on leatherworking for hunters, is it worth it?

Have a break, Have a Kit-Kat

Im taking a little bit of a back seat again when it comes to wow. I’m still logging in for a bit now and again; in fact did my first gruul and mag run the other night, which was really exciting. For the most part though im not spending much time online.

However, that’s not to say im not keeping in touch… My reader has been super busy this last week with all the wrath news hitting the web. Incase you’ve been under a rock somewhere, the beta has begun, and invites have commenced. From what I can tell they’ll be doing it in waves, so if you haven’t already done so, go sign up for the beta under account management now!

Lots of news coming from the beta so far… and im sure there will be plenty more where that came from, but I’ll save my views on that for another day.

Oh oh ….. my post subject had a hidden meaning today…. As of Friday gone, we have a kitten in the flat…. Unfortunately for us, this isn’t a permanent arrangement, as we have bought him for my mums birthday next week. In the mean time though we’re really enjoying having him around (even if he wares us out silly), and when he’ all big and stuff, he’ll make the perfect hunters companion….

Ding Ding Ding!!!!

Ok, so those of you that are regular readers (hi Misty!!) will know that ive been leveling a hunter alt in between all those lovely Kara runs. Well finally i managed to get to 60!!!! Yeay!!! and subsequently have tamed myself a lovely looking new pet....

Isnt he pretty!!???!

Seriously though ive been waiting to tame this bad boy since i first saw him on petopia, and now i have!

Masahashi (Masa) is now at level 61, and tbh my main focus is to get her to 70 in the next few weeks and try and fit in a couple of Kara runs with her. Its really the first time that ive played a class which is designed to hurt stuff and im really enjoying it....

Anyway, after a week on holiday away from the laptop i have lots of posts on the reader to catch up on, so until next time....happy hunting!
