(Sort of) Weekly Character Update

     Hi all! Sorry about not writing recently. Many family issues have popped up so I had things more to do than I had planned on. So gaming and writing got to take a back seat while I dealt with things. But I am back for now, but December is a busy month for family things so I don't expect to have a lot of posting this month. I hope that every one is alright with this. Now on to what the Characters have been doing for the past couple of weeks.

Airholen the Explorer
      So I have hunted down and slayed Ordos twice now. Picked up a warforged helm. This spurred me to look into the possibility of going all warforged. Well, I am now gearing towards that plan these days. That means that Airholen will be doing the Ordos and Celestials run every week till I get all of the gear. Once he is fully geared then I will turn to doing the old raids just to say that I have done them all.

Brewmaster Asmodea
       Asmodea is working on this same gearing philosophy. But there are a couple of pieces of gear in LFR. So I am working towards the gear. I also am doing the missions to get the Cloud Serpent flying skill and to complete the missions to progress in Wrathion's questline.

        STO's Winter Wonderland event is up. And I suck at it. So I have stopped playing STO while the Winter Event is active.

     Like I said earlier, I haven't had much time for playing. So hopefully I will get more time over the next few days but you never know. Until next time, enjoy!

Fantasy News and Views 7

World of Warcraft:     So little new news has come out about the new expansion. People still debate about the Gear Changes, No Flight till 6.1, and Garrisons a lot. But other news involving WoW in general has also come.
        Ghostcrawler is leaving Blizzard. Ghostcrawler aka Greg Street, is the lead systems developer for WoW. As such, he lead the team that tried to make sure that the software and hardware always placed nice with each other. In WoW, he was also the most vocal Lead on Twitter and the website about what they were doing to WoW. And the community either praised of vilified him for it. Even so, most of the community have offered Greg well wishes. All I can say is that I will be sad to see him go because I liked that he provided information as much as he did. I can only hope that his replacement keeps up with the tradition and don't get scared away by the vitriol of the more enthusiastic people. I have not heard who will be replacing Greg.
       Legendary Films, the maker of the WoW movie, have announced a few names of the cast of the movie. None are A-listers, so the money might just get more spent on getting the visuals right. And the actors and actresses look to be decent ones. One of the actors, it has been discovered, has 5 level 90 characters. So at least we know he will do his best to make the movie good.
     So I don't have much else to say right now. So until next time, Enjoy!

Weekly Character Update

     I hope you all had a great Thanksgiving. I don't what I was thinking when I said I would get out stories and stuff this past week. I am sorry, and things will get better. I did have a wonderful time with my Parents, Brother and his family and my own family. Now on to the Characters.

Airholen the Explorer     Finally got my Signet and Burden. Combined and upgraded the piece. Then I also reforged it from expertise to hit. This is all that I can reasonably do for the gear. So now Airholen with try to do the Shaohao daily quest to get that rep up and collect 100K Timeless coins along the way to get the mount. Still have to kill the Emerald Gander, Ironfur Steelhorn, and Urder the Cauterizer rare elites. Also did another step on the Time Orbs quest line. Two more to go and then that will be done.

Brewmaster Asmodea     Valor Capped this past week. Also got enough Valor to get my first piece BiS gear. Upgraded it too. But I can start doing the SoO raids so am trying to get the rest of my BiS gear. Also got most of the the first set of coins for the Legendary Cloak quest. Four more coins to get and then I just get to farm rep for Wrathion.

Strayleaf of the Nightfall     Made level 87 and did some dungeons as a tank. Also have moved further along the quest lines and went from Jade Forest to Valley of the Four Winds and now into Krasarang Wilds. Working on leveling her because Asmodea had Valor Capped.

Blue Adept, Ghost Whisperer    Made Level 21 and gained a new Shield Ability. Still trying to clear out missions. Been fun trying to get him to level up but it's not as easy or straightforward as WoW or STO. Going to look into ways to level better.

Vice Admiral Zombee     Still working on Reps. Dyson Sphere rep is still working towards rank 3. In fact none of the reps have tiered up yet. I still like this new Rep system way more than the previous model. I want to see them move that to all over this new system.

      That is all I played this past week. Tune in tomorrow for the new Fantasy News. Until then, Enjoy!
