Midsummer - Part one.

Last night I spent quite a few hours working on the meta for midsummer. I will write a longer post later on the in's-and out's of Midsummer, but right now I want to post a warning.

I was in a quiet place in the Dalaran sewers last night attempting to get the torch juggler achievement. Part way through the throwing a gnome parked himself at my feet, and ended up catching half of the torches I threw into the air. Not only did it interfere with me being able to do the achievement, it stole torches purchased with precious flowers.

I am not sure if this is considered griefing or "working as intended". But I suggest you attempt to do the juggling achievement in your faction only areas.

Spread the word about the ability to steal torches too.

The most bizzare spam comment ever?

This morning I received an email stating that I had a new comment on my healing ICC wing 1 post of oh, like 6 months ago. Here is the comment, links etc striped out.

The really good news is that through shamanic healing you can be cleared of your emotional, mental, spiritual and energetic blocks in a very gentle, yet deep way . Unlike many other healing methods, the healing techniques I use theta healing, shamanic healing, soul retrieval and spiritual coaching work to permanently clear up your issues.

I am not sure if this is trying to sell something or telling me I need to relax, and just cast chain heal till the boss is dead.

All quiet on the Northrend Front.

With Ex Obscurum leaving Farstriders for greener pastures I have been struggling to find my place in Dark and Light. I am raiding 2-3 days per week, but not feeling it like I did back in the day with Ex Obscurum.

With the fall of the Lich King Northrend has fallen quiet. There are a few skirmishes here and there, the Argent tournament is still going strong, and allowing me to gain reputation with the remaining Horde cities. I spend a hour or two a day clearing out random dungeons for gold, as Triumph Emblems have even lost their value.

I am currently leveling a Paladin. This is the Paladin I started with the release of BC, got to level 17 and parked it. I finally picked it up again 2 weeks ago, and have made an amazing push to level it. I am now level 65, and I can feel the cold winds of Northrend blowing. I have only explored Hellfire Peninsula and parts of Zangermash, but I am dying to abandon the deserted locations of Outland. I spend 3 days in Hellfire and never once saw a player character. Zangermarsh is just as lonely. Thank God for the dungeon finder. As a Tankadin, I always find a group within 2-3 minutes.

Tonight I am going to start farming Sethekk Hall for the Paladin libram, hopefully I can take that into Northrend with me and ease leveling there.

I am not sure where this blog is going to be going while I work through the Northrend Blues, and await Cataclysm. I will try to post a little more often, if for nothing else than keep me occupied when I am supposed to be working.

There will probably be a lot on Alt news here until I either got into the Beta, or Cata comes out and I can start shamaning again.
