First, a brief status update. Holidays and work schedule do not lead to a productive gaming life. I have managed to 85, as of last night. I both love and hate Stonecore at this point. I have not geared up to a Heroic level yet, but will be working on that after Christmas. I did max out Zel’s Alchemy and Herbology, and completed both Hyjal & Vashj’ir. The questing has been fun and the dungeons are just challenging enough.
Now to the matter at hand. It is that time of year where I get a little sentimental. The spirit of the season lights a small fire inside of me and I feel a bit more positive and supportive. To all of you out there, I wish you the best of times during the holidays. Don’t focus on the presents, the food, or even your religion of choice. Across the world people celebrate different traditions at this time of year, and it’s the chance for all of us to come closer to each other and wish one another wellness and prosperity.
It’s the little things that really start to stand out, like the news story I heard about an unidentified gentlemen, who entered a Goodwill store and passed out unmarked envelopes to the patrons, which when opened, revealed a fifty dollar bill in each. The story didn’t say how many were handed out, and no one knew the man’s name, but just for a moment, someone embraced the spirit of the season and gave of himself.
I’m not going to ask you to hand out money to strangers, but just remember that the quiet DPS that is doing just ok on your next dungeon run may be having a bad day. I end this entry the same way the original “How the Grinch Stole Christmas” ended; with words that have more meaning & deeper meaning than possibly any other Holiday special…
“Welcome, Christmas, bring your cheer. Cheer to all Whos far and near. Christmas Day is in our grasp so long as we have hands to clasp. Christmas Day will always be just as long as we have we. Welcome Christmas while we stand, heart to heart and hand in hand. “
I have a few ideas for posts, but I don’t know what anyone wants to hear. Soloing guides for BC Dungeons, tips and things to watch for in Classic and BC raids, more theorycrafting (Talent Trees, Offspec Basics, Prot PvP), or Warriors in Lore even? Come on Azeroth, hit me! Tell me what you want to see on this blog over the next month and a half before Cataclysm.
I currently have two drafts saved on two different topics, but I just can’t seem to find the time to get around to finishing them. Between falling asleep early, work, Jury Duty, finishing Stormrage, starting The Shattering, work, getting my cell phone fixed, mount runs and crafting Sulfuras, The Hand of Ragnaros on WoW, and work, I just keep running out of hours in the day. Now the pre-cataclysm event has started with crazy elementals and cultists.
I hoped on over to Stormwind to participate. I grabbed a few items befitting an elemental destruction cultist from my bank and reported in for the infiltration mission. I took up the call, did some recruiting, met an image of Cho’gall and finally reported back to Varian. Then it was off to Northrend to spend a couple hours hunting Elementals for the “Tripping the Rift” Feat of Strength. Definitely not a bad night, but nothing of substance for the blog accomplished. Tomorrow is another day, however, and maybe I can get these things done.
Hello, I’m DeGei and I will be writing this blog. This is my first entry because the gave me it by default, so I figured best make use of it.
