My guild has moved on to Order side for now. I’m in Volkmar server. I will miss my Zealot, though I might hop in on her once in a while. On the other hand, I’m enjoying the Runepriest a lot. It’s the mirror of Zealot so I don’t mind it so much. Also trying out the Swordmaster – I think I’m a tank at heart, since I like to charge at people. I’m so torn between the two now. We’ll see. I know the guild needs a healer more than a tank, though. We have enough tanks in the guild.
Nothing much else to say. See ya.
Well, I guess I should post on what I like about WarHammer Online so far. I spent like maybe 5 hours last night playing it after I got off work.
Public Quests or PQ. You can just join in this part of the map and will prompt you to do quests with others. In return, you get some good lootz from it, as well as influential rewards. You don’t even have to join a party to participate! Just kill, get lootz, and collect other rewards.
RvR Scenarios. Don’t like open PvP (people vs. people) or RvR (realm vs. realm) but like to do it every once in a while? Join a scenario, which takes you to an instance that primarily lets you kill people from the opposite realm without causing grief from other people who try to avoid it. This makes it balanced for people who love RvR and those who don’t.
No more repairing equipment. The only thing I know that will let you repair are some goody equipment you might like to use later on.
Zealots are awesome. Nuff said.
That’s it for now. I am definitely going to have trouble balancing Lord of the Rings Online and WarHammer Online. Oh no, there’s Stargate Worlds coming up, too! Whatever will I do?!
WarHammer Online is going live in a few minutes. Are you ready for it? :) WAGGHHHHH!
So, I was feeling bored with doing my little quests here and there, and I saw that Margaret from Preying Mantis (PM) was looking for hunters for a Rift raid run, so I jumped to the chance, since I never really played with them before other than Helegrod.
Boy, I’m really mighty impressed with the way they ran this. No nonsense, a few explanations, kill the boss, split the loot, and on to the next boss. We did the locks 3 through 8 in a matter of two hours, compared to where it will usually last 5-6 hours from 3 through 7 on some raids I’ve joined. It was awesome. Another plus was that most of them already had Rift gear so it was easy to roll for whatever I needed for my hunter (I got the chest piece gem).
It’s easy to tag along if you know what you’re doing, and a good thing that I did. We didn’t have the +3 hope buff, they only had one LM (lore-master), who did a mighty job of keeping us powered up, wound/disease control, and stun immunity. Hardly anyone died, except for the Balrog boss, where only 2 died but was brought back up with efficiency. I hope they were impressed with me as well, hardly questioning what to do and such. I would love to do another run with them, if only just to do a quick one to get what I need.
I just wish this was the same for all the raids I’ve ever been in. Although, it’s also fun to just talk and chat while doing the run, however long it takes. But when you’re in a time crunch like I was at the time, this run was really ideal for me.
Thanks, PM, hope to do more Rift runs again with you in the future. If you’ll let me.
Some screenshots of the end part of Book 14, Chapter 15 in Lord of the Rings Online:
It’s definitely worth it to the end!
Edit: the pictures are broken now but I’m not reposting them, sorry. :P
Yep, still awake. And it’s already the start of another day. I discovered/learned some things today, though. Or should I say: Yesterday.
1. TVShack.net – my new favorite resource to find movies and TV shows. You must go! Love.
2. How to hack my PSP. Yes, I know. It’s bad. But it’s good. I’m still waiting on a game to use it with, though, so I can fully downgrade the version I’m using right now. Yes, I know. But eeeeeeee.
3. Mabinogi. New game coming out in Open Beta. Looks promising. Somewhat casual. Must check out.
4. Some good news. Told my immediate family, but I can’t say for sure yet and confirm it. Have to wait till the 20th. You’ll love this one.
5. My daughter hates covers like me. I kick my covers off in the middle of the night. She does the same. Luci needs to stop covering us back up. Hehe. Okay. Time to really get a bit of shut-eye. With my luck, Dani will wake me up at noon. Good thing I’m off today.
Once I start typing here, I feel like I want to curl back in bed and sleep. Why do I feel like writing on my blog makes my skin crawl? Or that is has leprosy and I must stay away. Just weird. Well, I’ll try to post something worthwhile.
Highlights, from now to then:
~ Still playing LOTRO.
~ Had Thanksgiving, November.
~ Went to Singapore for 7 days, November.
~ One of my great-uncles passed away, November.
~ Also learned one of my great-aunts passed away, few years back.
~ Family reunion in Chicago, July.
That’s all I remember right from memory. Happiness and sadness, all rolled into one. Such is life.
~ Will be working Christmas day.
~ Will be working New Year’s day.
Such is life.
Sheesh, I haven’t wrote on this blog in so long. I just don’t have anything much to update. I’m a really boring person. I just work, sleep, play games online, read, and the cycle goes on. Okay. Pity party over. Hehehe.
Behold, now comes the different thought processes that Leiza has going on in her brain.
There’s this little newspaper I always pick up just when I get in to work. The little box where you pull this lever and you get this little tabloid-size paper-ma-jiggie. Oh, that reminds me of that CSI episode where they found a head in there. Now, I gotta take care not to take any of those newspapers in that box. Good thing there’s this girl that hands them out to people. Because it’s nearby the train station. I really love the proximity of the train to work. I should use the train again. I haven’t ridden one since 2004 — I remember the year because I still have the card with the 2004 sticker on it. Maybe because I usually get ready late, even though I get to work early. I parked my car at the dock earlier so I could get my gear upstairs and then get the key card to get to another parking area that has badge-access only. But someone wanted me out of the spot I parked at, because he had to pick something up or drop something off at the docks. Blah, I lost like 4 minutes there trying to get out and back in another spot. 4 minutes late when I clocked in. (Blank look on my face while I try to get my thought processes running again.) Oh man, is that the time? 5:43pm. But it’s like 2 minutes late. I gotta adjust it soon. Looking at some pictures again. Oh, the world’s largest picture mosaic! I forgot I took a picture of that. I wonder what was in those pictures on the picture mosaic? It’s too high to really see the individual pictures. I really gotta get back on the galaxyzoo.com site. Those are some pretty amazing galaxies out there. Makes me feel smaller than I really am. Gotta lose weight. But I’m so lazy. Oh, that Zantrax 3 didn’t work out too well for me. It made me dizzy all day. I think it fought with BP pill and the other pill. Leiza didn’t win in the fight. She was on the bed, trying to get through the day. Good thing I tried it when I was off-work. I told Lucien to try it, though. He might get something out of it all, though he did feel the same queasiness like I did. But it’s been 3 days now, so it should be good. Oh, Lucien should be seeing that contractor now. We’re thinking of adding some rooms on the second floor. Gotta get ready when Janna and Jonelle come here. But when are they coming? The adoption thing is taking too long. It’s been 2 years already. Lucien’s impatient, always ragging me and asking me what the status was. How can I tell him when I don’t know anything? I keep telling him that but still blahbitty-blah-blah. Dani is really growing. She’s so cute and sweet most of the time. She’s doing her little tantrums here and there, but sometimes I’m the cause of it. She fell off the bed last night, and was crying a lot, I felt so bad that I had to hug her for a long time. But I know she’ll never learn her lesson, because she’s going to end up doing it again. But that’s how children discover their boundaries. She even tried to see how far she could go using this little step ladder we had. I gave her a warning tone, but she just looked at me and propped her foot on the first step. I even glared at her and kept talking in a stern tone, but no dice. She looked, “Let’s see how far I can pull this off”. Finally, I went over and put her foot down on the floor where it was more stable. She cried. I guess I kinda scared her? Dunno. Her hair is growing so much. I wonder if I should try to cut her bangs. But her hair is so nice and soft, I’m afraid to even touch it. I’m starting to brush her teeth. She kinda likes the feeling of the brush against her teeth, but then it’s hard to keep her mouth open enough to brush them. She keeps biting down. So I have to make her smile by smiling at her showing my teeth. She does a lot of imitations here and there. Like earlier this morning, I was wiggling my fingers to her, and she imitated it. She’s so cute! I just want to hug her. Oh, I think I made her irritated in trying to pull her thumb away from her. We gotta try to stop her thumb-sucking soon. It’s not good for her teeth. But she cried and cried, and it hurt me. I have to look up what’s a better way to do this.
Okay, I’m drained. There’s still a lot of the stuff in there, I just can’t catch up. But funny about what you’re thinking and just typing it out like a boss dictating notes to his assistant. It’s fun to do that sometimes. :)
Checking my old post and saw it kinda left me hanging on the computer issue. I got it up and working but I don’t know how long. I’ve been really meticulous lately in backing up my stuff now, just in case it blips out on me again.
Back on LoTRO. I did the Lifetime membership. I could afford it for now, but who’s to say that I could afford it later? At least I’ll have a game to fall back on when there are no other games for me to play for FREE.
Luci got a new vehicle. He’s loving it. He traded in his gas-guzzler truck for a hopefully even better one. Now he wants me to trade in the car I’m driving, which we just bought not even a year ago. Sheesh.
There are other news, but I’m a little tuckered out to say any more. Toodles
