Archive for the ‘Farming’ Category


I want a new title. I want:

“Helper Zwingli”

Now, the title I’m wearing “Farmer Zwingli” is highly appropriate.  I can honestly say that I spend most of my time farming up veggies, hunting up the meat, and making the Pandaren Treasure Noodle Carts.

Now, for those interested, there are purely mercenary reasons for doing this. The Frostwolves use an ELPEKGDLP…Some sort of thingy that allows raiders to gain points. Based upon their number of points they have access to special items AND they can use spend these point on LOOTZ!!!  One of the way you gain these points is by getting raid materials together, and the aforementioned carts are one of those items that we can turn in to gain points.

There’s only one problem…

I’m not a raider!

I’m sitting here with the most point of any person in the guild, and I’M NEVER GOING TO TURN THEM IN!!!

“What a waste of time,” you may say.

I think not.

You see, here’s the thing.  We all play for our own particular reasons.  Some play to raid. Some play to rp. Some play to socialize in /gchat.

I would guess that there are as many reasons to play WoW as there are players.

For me, it’s all about helping.

I’m not saying I’m being altruistic. It doesn’t mean that other’s aren’t helping.  It means that this is the way that I’ve found that I can add the greatest value to the guild that I can.  While I’m a solo player, I really want to be a help to my guild.

What do I get out of it?  I’m glad you asked.  I get my strokes from it.

1) It feels good.  Please understand, this is a pretty nice reward in and of itself. I feel like I’m adding something positive.

2) I get a kick out of Navi mentioning it in vent. I’ve asked about giving my points to other raiders, but she put the ka-bosh down on that idea quickly.

3)  It gives me a reason to log in, even if it is just for a few minutes to harvest my crops.

And, 4) if by some random chance RNGesus allows me to raid, get a normal Garrosh kill, and that beautiful BOA Bow drops (heck, I’d be happy with the Flex version)…I’m sooooooo spending all of my points on it!

Again, I think we all have our reasons why we play. For me, I want to help out my guildies as best as I can, given the play time I have.

What about you?  Why do you play?


P.s. Please send your prayers and kind thoughts my way. It’s only a month before I report to COT for my 5 week introduction *cough* to USAF life as a Chaplain.  I’m giving my 4 weeks notice at my job (yes that’s a thing), selling our house, trying to get into better shape (10min mile, here I come!) Things are winding down here at an atomic pace.  This will be the first time I’ve been separated from my family for any length of time. I just want everything to go as smoothly as possible.

Well, my Ask Mr. Robot issues have been fixed!

Here, can you see what it is?!


What? No?

Oh yeah, I transmogged everything.

Well, go take a look at my armory.

I’ve got a new Pew Pew: a Death Lotus Crossbow!

It’s a named item, so it doesn’t have the issue that my previous one did.

I’ve been spending some quality time in LFR, getting through phase one of the Black Prince series of quests.

I doubt that it’s worth it; but I’m probably going to try and get one of those “Sha Touched” weapons as well.

Oh, the Joy that LFR can bring into one’s life!

Talking about LFR…

How horrible is it?!

Yes, it really is that bad.

I’ve been in more groups than I can count that get hung up on the Iron Juggernaut.

Now, funny thing happened yesterday.  I had to go into Terrace for the Sha of Fear quest…and had an amazing run!

I figured it was just because we were all overgeared for the instance. But, then I noticed that one of the tanks was a fellow Frostwolf!!!  It was Taloski, who is freakin awesome!

It was truly a great run. No wipes, no complaints, no ashatts.

For a minute I may have forgotten that it was an LFR run.

Hey, let’s count our blessings and pray for another!

I’m a true fan.

I especially enjoy meeting other WoW bloggers online.


When JD asked for some help with regular Dragon Soul, I jumped at the chance to help him out.

I got online, was invited to the raid, and made my way over to the Caverns of Time.

Got there, and ended up waiting next to a Mage named Kinevra.

Man, that named looked familiar.

Then, as the group began to assemble, some more names started looking familiar…

There was a Draynee, Tyledres, and Kaylon…just to name a few more.

Of course I knew some people, like Zeptepi (Matty) and Tumunzahar (JD).  So, I went ahead and asked JD if there were other Bloggers in the group.

He mentioned the MULTIPLE BLOGGERS who were a part of the group!!!!

OMGOSH! I began to /fanboi all over the place!

Other than Matty and JD, can you guess who these bloggers are?!

And to think, someone actually said I needed help with my Mog! 😉


P.s. We got the first two bosses down. And…No, I wasn’t the cause of any of the wipes! /firsttimeforeverything!

What can I say, I really like this part of the game.

Just Tillin' The Fields!

Just Tillin’ The Fields!

I can’t say “why” I like it so much, I just do. I find myself wishing I could get more plots to farm.  Maybe set up a little farm in Darnassus.  You know, some place to retire to.

Of course, I’m still loving the Pet Battles!

Got him!

Got him!

So, this is where my WoW life has gotten me.  I’m farming digital plants, and running after digital pets.

I can live with that! 😉
