Well, it has been a little while since I made a real post here. I am finally beginning to settle in at my new job at a mens’ medium security prison. It’s been an educational experience, to be sure!

I’ve still been raiding with my wonderful druid, though! My guild has cleared Terrace at last and we more or less have it farmable. We’ve just gotten up to Shek’zeer in Heart of Fear. We’ve also had the first boss in Throne of Thunder down for a while, but my GM wants to finish the older content before we start working on the likes of Horridon and the rest of them. I’m in it for the thrill of the fight, so it works just fine for me. Smile

Meanwhile, I’ve also been trying to convince Vol’jin not to hate me quite so much, but he probably doesn’t like it when I wear that “Hordebreaker” title around him. :’(

Still Alive

I started a new job last week ( in a medium security prison), so my worgkin is not getting much love. :( I’m not sure she’d quite understand the point of a prison, anyway. She’d probably just as soon kill them all.

I’m hoping it won’t take too long to settle into my schedule, so I’ll have more farming time (odd that I actually miss that. )

Balance in 5.3 proves to be…so so.

(via Wowpedia)
I’ve never been much for number crunching,  but I do like to keep tabs on the state of balance, and we have had a couple of changes come with 5.3. I was hoping to see something done with Wild Mushrooms,  which I’ve found clunky and uncomfortable to use.  No changes there that I’ve come across with 5.3, so I’ll keep my fingers crossed for 5.4.

They have done some things with our Force of Nature talent, which looks to actually be viable now (particularly in single target situations). Definitely looking forward to testing it out here now that my little one is napping.

There’s also a new glyph for us, Glyph of Omens (replacing Glyph of Solar Beam if memory serves). While interesting, it doesn’t look like much of a game changer, so I probably won’t put it to use much.

My guild on Perenolde, Midnight Smacks, has finally made our way into Throne of Thunder and downed Jin’rokh pretty handily. I guess it is appropriate for the first boss in such a large instance to be a pretty simple one. We’re 4/6 in Heart of Fear, and we may be giving Terrace a whirl in the next week as we help some of our members catch up on gear.

Worgen, Free to Good Home

Well I have recently decided to find a new guild for my druid after some guild drama going on in the one I have called home for more than a year. The guild culture has shifted, and it was definitely time for me to change things up.

It took me a little while to find one with the right schedule (2 times a week after my precocious 2 year old son goes to bed). I came across one advertised on GuildOx that I had seen around some whose times seemed to be just right. Trialed with them this weekend and I really had a good time, and seemed to click well with them. In the end, though, I think they just wanted to bring in a token Worgen. Either way I am really enjoying the new people I’ve met.
