Been meaning to do this for awhile now; here’s my UI:

Of Interest

You’ll find below some links to recent posts from some of the blogs I visit. Not much has been happening these past few days; working on the Pelturas Whitemoon chain, and am on the final quest, Fallen Sky Lake, but it’s lvl 30 so I’ll have to come back to it later. Alchemy is clipping along, now at 198, but need to find some Wild Steelbloom for some of the upper-level potions. Otherwise, I’ve a hit a little lag; as with life, there are peaks and valleys, and so I’m in a valley at the moment. I rolled a NE warrior, too, to check that class out. I was seeing warriors do that cool charge and so wanted to see what that was like: and I like it. It’s a nice change of pace, too, because you really get into the thick of things; a cool way to vent aggressive energy. He’s to lvl 6. Eventually I hope to give each class a try, at least to better understand what I’m up against in the PvP context. I am finding, though, that, race-wise, I like Night Elves. Not sure why; I don’t like the floppy ears, but in contrast to playing the other races, I feel much more at home with a NE. Anyway, as promised above, here are some interesting links:

Tobold continues the series of posts on Dream Features; this time it’s Less-Random Loot Tables.

Tomas has a post on The Great Lynx Run. (I remember when I first made the run in the Wetlands. I was lvl 16 and working on the Sea Lion quest that requires you to go to Westfall. It was my first time in contested territory on a PvP realm so I just knew some 70 horde was going to pop up and gank me as soon as I set foot into yellow territory. Actually didn’t see one horde and while I did get some crockolisk aggro, Nature’s Grasp allowed me to root them and keep running; so wasn’t bad at all.)

Big Red Kitty reminds us of the Naked Gnome Race to be held this Saturday. Sure to be a sight to behold.

Amanna has an informative post on Potions, elixirs and scrolls. Have to say that I love using the potions I make with Alchemy.

Just Some Quick Comments

Just some quick comments about the weekend. Saturday night went well: I dinged 21. A fellow O.G. got onto his lvl 20 Dranei warrior and we ran some quests together in Ashenvale. It’s such a refreshing change to work with someone on quests. We got jumped by a lvl 25 Tauren druid at Zoram Strand but we took him down in a matter of seconds. Not sure why he was so crappy; I mean, it seems, that a 25 could put up a better fight than that against two 20s. He shifted to bear once late in the fight (which he should have done immediately, I think), shifted back to caster, then he was gone. I don’t even think he hit us with any dps spells (unless he hit the warrior), which he could have done since he saw us before we saw him. Nonetheless, it was my first non-battleground kill, so that was cool. Didn’t do much last night (graded papers all weekend, so I was exhausted); got on my alt mage and did some herb farming. Checked in on Gillir and got some $ from auctions, went to Ashenvale and logged.


The First Post of Gillir’s Killer WoW Blog

I started a blog on my guild’s website, but it’s bare bones and doesn’t have a lot of design options so I’m starting one up on blogger. There are a couple of posts there, if you’re interested.

I guess a few words in the way of an introduction: Gillir is a Night Elf druid on the Boulderfist server. He has the great fortune of being a member of The Olde Guard guild. He just dinged 20 last night. His professions are Herbalism and Alchemy. You can check out his Armory page here.
