2nd Blessing

I decided to try out LFR on Belf Zwingli.

I’ve not done it for a while. I’ve heard the horror stories. As some have been known to say, “I ain’t got time for dat!”  But, I decided that I wanted to see the raids.

During my first raid, I noticed that we didn’t have a spell haste buff.

I felt guilty.  There’s a pet for that!

So, I immediately went out and tamed one.

Say hello to Zippy!


I also realized that I didn’t have the Battle Rez pet.

Say hello to Blessing! I’m hoping he might be a 2nd Blessing to some poor player in need of a battle rez.

I really did name him "Blessing." Promise!

I really did name him “Blessing.” Promise!


Is it bad that I’m actually looking forward to LFR?

This picture needs a caption, and my pet needs a name.



Any ideas?

I live a blessed life. I can’t complain.

After reading BBB’s post on Dino-Island, I was ready for a long painful time of not-so-successful Dino-taming.

For some reason, I thought that with the drop of the Ancient Tome of Dinomancy might take a while.  I ended up getting it from the third Zandalari Dinomancer I dropped.

To say that I was a bit excited would be an understatement.  I’ve wanted to tame a dinosaur since I got stomped by the Devilsaur in Vanilla WoW.  That we were able to later on was great! But, I still wanted a Triceratops.  They’ve always been my favourite dino. :)

I can’t believe I forgot to get a screeny, but I found this pic on WoWhead.  Here s/he is:

orangegold triceritopsHe matches my current transmog. :)

I don’t have a name for him/her, and I’m taking nominations!

Still, I’m blessed. Not just because I found this little guy, but in general as well.

I hope that you are too.

I can’t begin to tell you how blessed I am.

I know that it may sound arrogant. I can sound like I’m bragging.  Perhaps I am.

I’m blessed by the people I know. The groups that allow me to wear the guild tags.

From <Phoenix Rising>, to the <Frostwolves>, to the <Claws of Nature>.  I am blessed by the people in my life.

Thank you for being there.

Friends that Give from their Creativity

I’ve already mentioned this once, but it bears mentioning again. You see, friends are what make this game great.  Friends that write you poems of appreciation.


Gifts that cost something

Friends that give you Battle Pets, to show their care and appreciation.


These were gifts from a wonderful friend in game.  Thank you so very much!


Finally, there has been some RNG love as well.  I can’t explain it. I know that people have been suffering. They’ve been camping these sort of pets for weeks, if not months. I’m not sure exactly how I wound up with 3 within 7 days.WoWScrnShot_020713_233104

In the end, this is my thought.

Be thankful.

Be thankful for the people that welcome you when you log in. Be thankful for those you raid with, talk on vent with, pursue those in-game goals with.

So tell me, who do you appreciate?

I’m not sure if you heard or not, but Navi has been gifted with a Darkmoon Rabbit Battle Pet.

Darkmoon Rabbit Pic

Big Nashing Teeth!

Go ahead, read her post.

Actually, go ahead and Google “Darkmoon Rabbit” and see what you get.  If you read enough of it, you’ll come away with an idea on how hard it is to get one, and the level of admiration/affection her friend has for her.

A while back, Matty and I came up with an idea to gift Navi with a collage of Notes of Appreciation.  In the midst of trying to contact all of the 60+ Blogs on her Blogroll, I was asked a question.

“Z, what’s with all the Navi-love?”

My response was:

“I’m not really sure. I guess she is the common thread between me and Matty.”

In her blog post, someone makes a statement on how “nice” a “friend” she has.

In which she responds, “I only HAVE nice friends :)”

While I don’t doubt the veracity of that statement, I think there may be more of a reason.

Why does Navimie “seem” to get so many meaningful gifts?

Here is my answer:

Navi makes you feel like a Rock Star.

My first piece of evidence is the Navispams.

There is only one reason that all of these people have been Navispammed.  Namely, that they are “worth” it.  Navimie has decided that these folks are worth getting to know. Worth researching, tracking down, stalking, blogged about, and shown for all the world to see at their very best.

Navimie gets nice things because she has gone out of her way, made it a mission, to show others as “being” special, worthy and wanted.

My second piece of evidence is her constant encouragement.

Not only does she read every boring USAF Update I write, but she constantly pours encouragement into it.

Navi Encouragement

I’m not the only one she does this to.

My third piece of evidence is how she shows appreciation.

You see, thankfulness is systemic with her.  It is part and parcel with who she is as a WoW Player/Community Blogger.

Her blog is full of “Navispams, Thank Yous, and Gratz(!) Posts.”

And then, she even goes the extra mile with something like this:

WoWScrnShot_013113_221338 WoWScrnShot_013113_221332

You can also read where she did something similar for Erinys of Harpy’s Nest Blog.

This is why Navimie gets nice things:

It is an outpouring of appreciation for the gift(s) she’s already given us.

Now, who should we lavish some love upon next?  I’m taking nominations!

I had two Death Knights camped out on a couple of servers in Jaguero Isle.

I’ve been hunting the elusive Baby Ape!  Turns out, they only come out and play during the rain.

I logged in onto Dexington around 6:00pm CST, and it was raining!

I saw multiple green paws, and I immediately moused over the closest one.


I was able to tame two before the rain ended, and the others disappeared.  I ended up with a Poor and Common quality pet.

WoWScrnShot_020413_180329Turnip is for Tame!

WoWScrnShot_020413_180248Even got an Acheezement out of it!

A picture worth a thousand words.  In this case, it’s worth numerous days of camping Felwood across three different servers as well.

Place: Felwood

Server: Sentinels

Time of Day: 3:40pm CST

# Spawned/Quality: 1 of Poor Quality


For those of you still camping this pet.  You can do it!  One will spawn for you!

May you be blessed with one soon…

It took me a few years, but I finally got the “Elder” title.



I was inspired by many of the other bloggers of late.  Many have attained different achievements for various things.  I decided to take a look at how far along I was.  It took a bit of flying, but I’m glad I did it.

Now, my dirty little secret is this:

I didn’t do it for the title, or even the accomplishment.

I did it for the pet the Lantern!

Lunar Lantern

You see, I was busy finding the Elders for the coins to purchase it.  That was when, coupled with the achievements of others I’ve been reading, I decided to look at how far along I was.

I’m glad I did.  It is nice to finally have it done.

I also was able to get some Pet Battle Achievements as well.

I’m beginning to understand how achievement hunting can get addicting.
