Success!

Busy weekend for myself and 'Security'.

I have leveled up herbalism and alchemy to 480 & 369 respectively while also obtaining several key parts of the Explorer achievement. I believe I just have a couple WoLTK zones as well as 2 Cataclysm zones to complete now for the achievement and title for exploring.

Last nights raid yielded hard fought victories over:

Omnotron Defense System (screenshot above)
Valiona and Theralion (forgot to take screenshot)

Unfortunately, I died early on in the Omnotron fight and like a true huntard released and
missed the credit for the take down.

After that we cleared some trash, then proceeded into Bastion of Twilight for many many
attempts at Valiona and Theralion. As the clock was ticking down to the end of the raid,
we were able to down both on what most thought would be our last attempt without
any major issues.

After looking at my stats in the raid where I could just stand still and fire versus having
to move around, I really need to look into understanding how to get the max dps I can
whilst on the move.

Oh, and Syx also now has 3 epic pieces. 2 crafted by a guild mate (chest, belt)
and 1 by rep (feet).

Good times

Syx has 2 pieces of epic now (feet, chest, belt [soon just need materials]) and over the past week my iLevel has risen quite nicely as I run more heroics and continue to raid.

I did have a random world epic drop for me the other day, but it was for a paladin and since my paladin is on another server and probably months from being 85, I decided to sell it and made some nice coin for myself.

I also finally started on professions as this entire time I had none. I chose alchemy and herbalism as the guild could use another. So far it is not bad. I mean having epic flying helps a lot with gathering everything.

pug rage

Seriously people. Calm down. Count to ten.

Just starting to run Heroics and have only had the pleasure of a couple non guild runs and let me tell you that people just need to relax a little bit.

Running a random yesterday with a friend, we had someone leave the group after a wipe because the healer did not run back. Not that the presence of the healer would have made any difference by the time they got to us mind you.

After that, a mage replaced that person and the group went on without any issues. Even when we wiped on a bad pull that could or could not be blamed on a certain hunter. The jury is still out on that one. But everyone else just laughed that one off and finished the dungeon with no other issues.

So just take a deep breath everyone.

Dungeons

After playing my paladin for a little bit, I have decided to get Syx ready for raiding and ran my first dungeon last night which yielded me a new ring, and pair of boots.

While I am having fun playing Keveena, I also do want to see end game content and spend some time building up my gear on at least 1 character.

Introducing Maahes...

I seem to luck out with doing a quick tour for rare pets before work as I came across Sambas this morning and quickly added to my collection.

Maahes was an ancient Egyptian lion-headed god of war, whose name means "he who is true beside her".
