Raiding with Leashes

Raiding with Leashes

This post is a part of #IntPiPoMo 2017. You can find more information and sign up to participate here.

I mentioned working on this achievement in my monthly gaming goals post, and I finished it sooner than I expected, to be honest. All I had left was the Viscidus Globule, Giant Bone Spider, and Stitched Pup, and I’d finally obtain Mr. Bigglesworth (putting me one step closer to Crazy Cat Lady).. but the RNGods have never really been in my favor.

Before I did anything, I decided to see how much they were on the Auction House, because I really didn’t want to trek all over on tons of different toons. However, after breaking down and getting the Viscidus Globule on the AH for 14k, I decided it was probably worth my time to just go farm the dang things. I know a lot of people won’t think that 14k is a lot, and it isn’t that much, but when you only have 300k gold to your name, one is kind of stingy. And at least it cut out having to trek over to AQ40 until I wanted to just get the achievement, or was working on transmog farming (which is low priority—pets first!).

I hit up Naxxramas on Chestnaught to see what I could get, and ended up with the pet from Loatheb (which I already have two of thanks to generous guildies), as well as the one off of Maexxna. Gluth was not kind to me, sadly. Nor were tier drops, for that matter. So since Naxx is so easy to get to, I’ll have to make farming both normal and heroic Dreadnaught Battlegear one of my first transmog goals. Anyway, the spider is gross. I’m super afraid of even Daddy Long Legs (yes, I know they aren’t spiders), so I put this guy out, took a picture, and put him right back. Blech. But at least I have him, now! And I’ll level him eventually when Squirt is back on the 30th (NA realms).

So, since Gluth didn’t put out for Chest, I hopped on my hunter, Hazelnutt, and decided to just hit up the Construct Quarter. She didn’t get lucky either. So off to the shaman, Shaelee! Only hit up the Construct Quarter up to Gluth as well, but she surprisingly ended up getting lucky. He’s cute in a kind of disgusting way. It was a bit annoying to try to run even old content as a healer, so I guess I’ll have to finally bite the bullet and get my enhancement weapon on her.

And so, I have finally obtained the adorable Mr. Bigglesworth! I also ended up with pretty much every 10 Man achievement on Chest on my run through. Which, honestly, is my top pet peeve in WoW. If achievements are truly supposed to be account bound, why on earth do I not get credit on the toon if I’ve already completed it on another! I shouldn’t be spamming guild chat with achievements I got back when it was current content when I was playing my Druid. That defeats the whole purpose, Blizzard. Fucking fix it. I don’t mind if I can’t get credit cross-characters for most achievements. That’s fine. Whatever. But I want the credit for the ones I’ve done, instead of a “Not completed on XTOON.” when I mouse over something.

A bit delayed, but just a quick hurrah that Iron Circle finally said buh-bye to Kil’jaeden on November 6th!

Some people are blocking other people, but I tried my best! ;P

Congrats to all that were there on our first kill, and our second kill yesterday! Hopefully we can get in another kill or two to get achievements for a few more folks in the raid team. It’s exciting to have him down. It means I can start working on my gaming to do list a bit more!

So proud of Iron Circle.

Nov ’17 Gaming Goals

Starting Back Up

This post is a part of #IntPiPoMo 2017. You can find more information and sign up for participate here.

I used to do a thing where I put together gaming goals every month. And then I fell off the blogging and gaming bandwagon for a good while. These gaming goals help keep me from floundering around in gaming, and focus my limited free time so I just don’t sit there and scroll through Facebook.

The Goals 

She’s totally sure they’ll all get done…

Without further ado, here’s my gaming goals checklist.

World of Warcraft

  • “Well Read” achievement 
  • “Friend or Fowl?” achievement 
  • Level a fourth 110 (towards “Quintessential Quintet” achievement) 
  • “Double Agent” achievement
  • “Raiding with Leashes” achievement (Giant Bone Spider, Stitched Pup, Viscidus Globule) 
  • “Raiding with Leashes II” achievement (Netherspace Abyssal, Tideskipper, Coilfang Stalker, Lesser Voidcaller, Menagerie Custodian, Fiendish Imp, Tainted Waveling, Pocket Reaver, Phoenix Hawk Hatchling) 
  • “Turkey Lurkey” achievement 

Secret World Legends 

  • Roll up my Dragon for my new LP YouTube videos

Other

Did I mention it’s #VNNovember for the Community Game-Along challenge? That works out well, considering I want to try to get through the five million dating sims I’ve going at the same time (I’m currently playing Norn9, Sweet Fuse, Period Cube, Men of Yoshiwara: Ohgiya, Dream Daddy, Pub Encounter, and Seduce Me 2).

  • Finish Mitarashi’s route in Sweet Fuse 
  • Start Urabe’s route in Sweet Fuse 
  • Finish Takigawa’s Happy and Super Happy routes in Men of Yoshiwara: Ohgiya

Delving Back In

This post is a part of #IntPiPoMo 2017. You can find more information and sign up to participate here.

Back in February, I mentioned that I was going to purchase and play Sims4. And I started to, but never really did much with it. One of my favorite things to do in Sims, besides dressing my Sims up, is to do Legacy challenges. I’ve never been one to be big into building houses (I hate it, to be blunt), and I’m not one to sit there and let my Sims just sim their way through life. I get my greatest enjoyment out of tracking a legacy, and writing it.

Old Legacies

Tamara and Buddy. They were the sweetest couple I’ve played with in Sims to date.

For a while, back in 2011-2013, I was pretty regularly playing Sims3, and had a separate blog tracking a legacy I was working on. A computer crash brought an end to that, sadly. But I also started to feel “meh” about writing it. I had always written my legacies in first person, on separate blogs, and it just became too much.

So I’m starting up a new one with Sims4, but I’m not putting it on a separate blog, and I’m going to try writing it in third person for a change. Making it more story, rather than narration. I’m hoping that since I won’t have to worry about maintaining a separate blog, and letting it be more for fun and a creative writing outlet, that I’ll have much more fun with it. I’ve yet to finish a legacy, and I would very much like to!

Meet Willow!

So, meet the founder of my legacy, Willow Wilcox! I’m running the legacy with the Equality/Modern/Random Succession Law. Enjoy some basic information and the obligatory fashion dump before I begin. Also, is she not fucking adorable?!

Name: Willow Wilcox
Aspiration: Nerd Brain
Traits: Bookworm, Cheerful, Good

#IntPiPoMo is Back!

#IntPiPoMo is Back!

IntPiPoMo?

IntPiPoMo, or International Picture Posting Month is the image equivalent of National Novel Writing Month (or NaNoWriMo). NaNoWriMo focuses on writing 50,000 words over the course of the month of November. So, if a picture is a thousand words, that means that IntPiPoMo requires fifty pictures

These can be anything from screenshots from any game, to photographs you take in real life and want to share on your blog. Seriously, they can be anything—character selfies, shots of combat, sharing your game UI, showing off all those pretty new scenery shots with the new graphics card you got… you get the idea.

IntPiPoMo was started back in 2011 by Angelya of Revive & Rejuventate. In 2013, Jojo of Admiring Azeroth picked up the initiative. In 2015, Jojo passed it along to me, as she was out of the country and unable to run it. I changed it up a bit when I took over, offering some prizes for those that completed, and I plan to do so again this year. I’m hoping to continue to do the initiative justice, and I’m excited to see what kinds of screenshots and pictures folks are going to share!

How to Participate

  • Fill out this form to let me know you are participating! You can join at any time throughout the month of November!
  • Take the icon (original size 800×800) and use it on your site! Link back to this post so folks know where to go and what to do.
  • Aim to post fifty (50) images of your own creation/taking throughout the month of November.
    • There is no strict posting schedule or theme to adhere to, but feel free to bounce ideas off of fellow participants!
    • Feel free to post these images as a once-a-week batch, or throughout the week in small doses.
  • Use the #IntPiPoMo hastag when you share your blog posts via social media.

What Do You Get?

Well, duh, the satisfaction that you completed the challenge! However, I am offering a few prizes again this year.
  • Grand Prize – Of all participants who complete 50 images, I will be using a RNG (random.org) to draw a winner for a game up to $15 on Steam (game time for an MMO can be worked out if preferred)!
  • Three Other Prizes – Of all participants who complete 25+ images (up to and including those who make it to 50), I will be using a RNG (random.org) to draw three winners for a game up to $10 on Steam!

FAQ

Updated Nov 2, 2017 – 0013 EST

I got some great questions last year, and I’d like to continue the answers. Don’t hesitate to reach out if your question isn’t answered here!

Q: Can I sign up during the event itself? I don’t know if I can/want to participate.
A: Of course! You could sign up the final day, though I don’t suggest it.

Q: I don’t want to put these on my main blog. Can I use my Tumblr?
A: Yep! Tumblr is a form of blogging called micro-blogging. Some people also have micro-blogs on other platforms, too. All these micro-blogs are welcome as a part of the event!

Q: You mentioned photography being allowed, but what if I wanted to share some artwork throughout the month. Can I use it as a part of my submissions?
A: Yes! Whether it’s digital artwork, sculpting, knitting, etc., any form of creativity can tell just as much of a story as words can. Who am I to tell you that you can’t use these as well?

Q: I really don’t want to fill up my blog with photos. Can I participate and utilize photos as a part of my regular posts to count?
A: Indeed! Images don’t always convey everything you want to write, and sometimes you don’t want to make images the focus of a post. You are more than welcome to count images that you include as a part of a written post, so long as they are your own screenshots/photos.

Q: Can I create an animated GIF of images to get my point across?
A: So long as the images/screenshots are your own, feel free to create a GIF! However, at this point, it will only be counted as one image towards the total.

Q: Do I have to take all new shots? Or can I utilize shots I’ve already taken?
A: There is no need to take new shots, but I ask that you utilize shots that have not yet been posted in any other blog post, please!

#IntPiPoMo 2016 Postmortem

#IntPiPoMo 2016 Postmortem

I want to thank Shintar for the reminder. Real life has caught up with me hardcore.

@ggchestnut I know it’s Jan and you have more important stuff going on, but do you think there’s a chance of an IntPiPoMo postmortem still?

— Shintar (@ShintarCommando) January 7, 2017

The List

I want to send a super big thank you to everyone who participated this year regardless of how many shots you shared! It was a smaller turnout compared to last year, but it still produced some great screenshots and artwork! Here is the list of all the blogs who participated in the event this year.

Some Stats

Like last year, I want to cover some statistics on the images folks shared. Again, like last year, I really should have taken better notes on the game(s) and theme(s) people used, but hopefully I’ll keep it in mind for 2017! That said, I did notice that there was a large number of blogs from the SWTOR community, which I thought was awesome because I found some new SWTOR blogs to check out!

I do want to go over a few general statistics for this year, though.

  • Fourteen (14) total blogs participated in this challenge.
  • Ten (10) blogs posted at least 5 images.
  • Eight (8) blogs posted at least 25 images.
  • Seven (7) blogs posted at least 50 images.
  • Five (5) blogs went above and beyond the 50 images.
  • The highest number of posted images was 86, followed by 74.

The Winners

If you don’t remember, I offered up prizes again this year when I posted about the contest. Here’s a review of them, as well as the winners!
  • Grand Prize – Of all particpants who complete 50 photos, I will be using a RNG (random.org) to draw a winner for a Steam game worth up to $15! This is also exchangeable for an MMO subscription. 
    • And the winner is… Going Commando!
  • Three Other Prizes – Of all participants who complete 25+ photos (up to and including those who make it to 50 pictures), I will be using a RNG (random.org) to draw three winners for a Steam game worth up to $10! And the winners are…
    • Mainly Monsters
    • Memoirs of a Lady
    • GamingSF
Thank you again to all whom participated! I’m sorry it took so long to get the results posted, but I’m looking forward to seeing what kind of turn out we get next year! I definitely still plan on doing this, as well as offering prizes! I think the amounts this year worked out great for me, and still provided reasonable prizes!
October Goals Review

October Goals Review

This post is a part of #IntPiPoMo 2016. You can find more information and sign up to participate here.

  • Purchase Service Tokens
  • Re-rune DPS set
  • Buy new unlocked tank gear
  • Re-rune tank set

  • Make plans for guild/alliance Shade’s Eve Shindig (Never did.)
  • Put up the last Yardcore I recorded ages ago
WoW
  • Complete the Stormheim storylines
  • Unlock Suramar world quests
  • Get Archaeology to 100
  • Get Fishing to 300
  • Get Cooking to 600
  • Get First Aid to 400
  • Get Blacksmithing to 775
  • Get Mining to 750
Other
  • Finish Asagiri’s route in Men of Yoshiwara: Ohgiya
  • Finish one of the routes in Sweet Fuse

Thoughts

Life has been hectic in ways that I didn’t even plan for it to be, both emotionally and with work. I still got a decent amount of things finished, all things considered, though.

WildStar stuff that isn’t related to the community-at-large, or Wildcast (which I suppose is the community-at-large) have taken a bit of a wayside to everything else. Not that it’s a bad thing, but I do feel kind of bad about it. I’ve been doing a lot of stuff related to WildStar, just most of it outside of the game, which is a weird contrast.

I finally finished out Stormheim, which I think is my least favorite out of all the zones in the Broken Isles. Which stinks, even as a Warrior. I think that might be why it was my least favorite. That you’ve done all this Warrior stuff, and it doesn’t seem to mesh with Stormheim well. I’ve been trying to work my way through more of Suramar, and have slowly gotten through it (I think I hate it more than Stormheim), so I’ve unlocked more quests, but I really need to just finish the stupid zone.

I got farther in professions than I thought I would. I’m stuck at 765 Blacksmithing, and all of my patterns are grey. So that stinks. Archaeology feels more grindy than I remember, granted, I never got it very high on Chestnut, so that’s something to aim towards on Naught. Fishing is something I’ve been doing to kill time, plus I really want the Legendary fishing pole! First aid is getting there, slowly. I’m hoping as I get a higher level skill that my bandages will heal for more. I’ve hit a rut in mining, as well. Both of my Leystone and Felstone nodes are stuck at 1 star, despite lots of farming for the quest items. I really love professions, but WoW has really screwed the pooch with them, this expansion.

As for my otomes, I haven’t really gotten much done in either of them with work. I usually play them on my lunch breaks, but October didn’t leave me with many of those that weren’t thirty minute “hurry up and eat” breaks.

Some Stats

I wanted to cover some statistics on the images people shared. As I write this, I realize I should have probably taken notes on the game(s) and theme(s) people shared, but maybe that’s something to keep in mind for next year. I just want to cover general numbers.

So, without further ado, let’s check out the winners!

New Graphics Card

Here’s the stats. What is priority upgrades? We can’t do everything at once. Thoughts, IT folks? pic.twitter.com/7EDJkOpn7F

#IntPiPoMo 33/50 (Hey, I took the screenshot! :P)

Chaide and I have been searching as to how to beef up our computers. Not too long ago, I posted on Twitter asking for advice, as well as within a group of friends whose opinions I regard highly. We ended up deciding to get the NVIDIA GTX 960 for each of us, and the boxes themselves looked super sexy.

#IntPiPoMo 34/50

Chaide wanted to use my computer as the “dummy” computer to try putting it together first, so I unplugged it all, and he started working on installing the new card. I had to make a run to the store to obtain some compressed air. The insides weren’t too groady, but since we had them open, we figured it was best to blow them out.

Oh man, when we opened the cards up we were kind of awestruck, and we both commented on “how huge” the graphics card itself was. Now, for those with newer cards, you’re shaking your head and going, “Of course it’s that big. How could you think otherwise?” Well, we were replacing cards we’d gotten at least three years ago.

#IntPiPoMo 35/50
So yeah, there’s that. But I’m excited at how awesome everything looks on the new cards!

Kaijo Diablo

So every time we get an NVIDIA card, there’s always some sort of deal going on. I mean, we don’t get the cards for the deals, so they’re a nice bonus. This time, the deal was a Kaijo Diablo bundle–we get both the Hero and the skin with the card.

#IntPiPoMo 36-37/50

Which makes us obviously download and want to play the game. So we’re going to give it a try, and have someone willing to help us get a Cho’gall each to play with, which is also super cool. The only problem?

#IntPiPoMo 38/50

Uh huh. Sooooo I’m waiting impatiently to hear back from NVIDIA on what the fuck is going on.

Garuda

But after installing the cards, we hopped into various games, and spent a large chunk of time leveling and working through the MSQ in XIV. I have a lot of posts half-written about the story that I’ll get to posting at some point, but I really wanted to share the new and pretty screenshots we got last night of everything!

THERE ARE SPOILERS, so b’ware if you’re not into the level 42-ish MSQ yet!!

These pictures are #IntPiPoMo 39-81/50.

… Really?! … C’moooooon.

Wait, what? He’s a Garlean? And I didn’t know every Garlean had a third eye… though that explains some design choices, now.

Flashback time!

Oh shit. So his Dad is the one that caused the Reckoning or whatever it’s called? OHSHIT. And I need to know more about this Gaius and why he decided to take Cid under his wing…
They’re baaaaaaaack!

Hold the phone. Is there something I’m missing here? How did I give him the goggles? Am I a time-traveler? Did the Echo use my likeness so he would be more willing to help me later on? What’s going on here…

This fight was ridiculously fun!! We died a few times until we figured out spells and such (like that cast she does without a telegraph? That threw me off…). But I really loved how much more difficult it was. Though now that we know what to do, I’m sure we’d smash her to pieces in one go.

Talk about a literal “death glare”! Time to pull your soul out of your chest, lady!

OHSHITOHSHITOHSHITNOWAIOHSHITOHSHIT!

WHAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAATTTTTTTTTT? oshitoshitoshit!

AHHHHH! I need more story! GIMME GIMME!

Tonight’s plans, assuming I don’t fill a missing spot in raid in WildStar, is to work on our hunting logs and try to unlock Dzemael Darkhold. We just need to bump our rep up two more notches in the Grand Company, so we’re going to work on our logs a bit. That way we can run the dungeon to bump up our EXP fast so that we can continue with the story. Ohhh man, it got good again!! I pretty much sat there slack-jawed as I watched and listened. I’m so excited to get to 50 and work my way through the patch stories!
