I'm a Zookeeper!

So the top news for the week: I got the Zookeeper title, yay! As a vet student, I was looking forward to that title a lot. Only took 3 days of on and off camping, with several other people, to get it. Everyone was very polite, it was nice to chat with other pet collectors. My boyfriend flew up and got his in about 2 minutes :P, but it only took me a half an hour to get a minfernal, so I can't really complain. Next stop: soloing Kara on everyone who can to get the pet from the last boss. Doing the chess event 6 times, ugh. Not fun. But that pet and the one from Al'ar are the only 2 I am missing for raiding with leashes: part 2.

Got my ICC25 meta last week. There were some issues and the BF missed the one part he needed, which was very annoying. We'll have to look on open raid to find one next week. I really want the heroic LK kill, which we didn't do last night. Couldn't get the coordination down with the folks we had, very annoying, but I had the achieves for the meta from an earlier run.

BF got the DK to 90, so now we can duo the warbringers when he gets some gear. That's the hope, anyway. So that's one thing down. My shaman hit 90, I bought flying and haven't been back on her since. I am getting tired of gearing up toons I know I won't raid with. My rogue, mage, druid, and priest are all on the list before her anyway, so she might rest in the Vale for a bit.

In non-WoW news, my three dogs are very happy with the bag of tennis balls I brought home yesterday, and have been running around the house making a nuisance of themselves to show it.

So goal for today is Kara, and running the DK through LFR. We'll see where we end up tomorrow. No progress on Horridon. Hopefully more to report Wednesday there.

Grr, another night wiping to Horridon. Sigh, perhaps next week.

No luck with my Quiraji Gaurdling hunt. Just missed a few. I can't decide wether I should move around or camp one spot. I am not a good rare hunter, I get too antsy and bored. And I only have 1 computer and account, so I can't be doing something productive at the same time.

On the plus side, I am only missing 2 pets from raiding with leashes. Sadly, on is from the last boss in Kara. While it is cool to see the place, running it every week is getting old fast. So here's hoping the pet run this week gets it.

Off to bed, hopefully a better raid next week.

Server Maintenance

It's that time again, servers are down and I can't start my weekly LFR runs. So I figured I would list my goals for the week, and hope I can knock them out quickly.

-run the monk through the last 2 ToT LFRs for legendary quest drops
-run the druid through ToT LFRs for her legendary quest drops
-remember the priest does not need to do the legendary stuff, just get sha crystals for enchanting, and run through some of the earlier LFRs
-(probably run the priest through ToT LFRs anyway)
-level my shaman that last bit to 90 so my boyfriend's DK can hit 90 too
-gear up his DK as quickly as possible so he can come tank for our raids, our second tank an go back to healing, our second druid healer can go back to boomkin, and our hunter can put his sporebat away for a while
-run the Raiding with Leashes- part 2 raids and hope the Eye is kinder to us this time
-get bored and run all my alts through Kara to get to the last boss (and the final pet I need) since I learned to solo chess following this helpful guide

And once all that is done, probably time to level the hunter to 90. Stuck at 60 since I plopped her in Winterspring to finish the mount quest. Only took twice as long as it should since I kept forgetting that daily. I might set the shaman up to heal, give that a shot. I love my mistweaver healing, but sometimes I think I forget how to just heal and not "cheat heal" through DPS and smart heals. Plus, then me and our tree wouldn't be competing for the same armor and the int mail won't go to waste. Of course if that was what I am worried about I'd level a pally and heal since our pally healer has been DK tanking for the last few months.

But for this week- I hope we get horridon down, and he drops that staff (and pet and mount) and that I win the roll above all the others who will want it. I have the perfect transmog for it.

So there is my goals for the week. I'll come back to those next week and see if I was successful.

Long Break

Yeah, long time without an update. I am back in the States for the summer, and being home has been distracting. Had some housework to do (and had a screaming argument with my brother- ain't family just grand sometimes?) But I am a quarter of the way through vet school now.

On the WoW front we finished out HoF and have been wiping on Horridon. We tried 2-healing it pretty successfully (though I think our druid and pally or priest would be a better team than my monk and our pally) and I hae hope that we will down him this week when we have our regular crew back.

More on all that later. Just felt I should update after trying Navime's Moving House Giveaway. Boy, that was tough, only found 9 of the 16. Partly becuase I started late, and didn't go through methodically like I had planned. Oh well, grats to the winners! Awesome job on Navi's part with the hidden clues.
