On Wednesday, my laptop decided to almost die. I’d been having issues with it for a few weeks and I think it ran out of patience. I tried to scan and repair but it didn’t work and it even completely froze during that so I reinstalled Windows and hoped it would help. So far, it looks like it did so fingers crossed.
The Team Easily Amoosed (my raid team) finished Crucible of Storms so we’re going to do some older raids for achievements until the new raid is opened. All the cheese!
I thought I didn’t need to back up anything because all my stuff is in cloud these days anyway but after I installed WoW back, I realised I had no idea what addons I was using. Oops. I’m still getting them back with the method of “This looks strange and hard to do. Did I have an addon for it?” and then looking up addons for it until I remember the name. It’s a good thing I have an excellent memory! (I don’t. My memory is terrible. I’m not recognising any of these addon names. Send help.)
I was missing about half of Icecrown for Loremaster so I prioritised it before everything else and fortunately finished it before the new patch!
The amount of times the Lich King popped up to threaten me and to tell me to go get him in his Citadel was ridiculous. I thought the rest of Northrend was bad but Icecrown has him in every other quest. I understand that they wanted to get me all hyped up for the raid and to make me want to kill him even more but I was just rolling my eyes instead. And I didn’t have time to go kill him so the poor guy is still waiting for me.
It was the last week of season 2 so The Moosketeers (the team I’m running mythic+ dungeons with) assembled to try and raise our score and hopefully get a good Atal’Dazar key because we only had lower scores on it. We fortunately got it for our last run and finished it in time so this is how I’m ending the season:
I only started doing mythic+ dungeons seriously about 7 months ago and I was very scared to even set foot in them, especially with people I knew, but I’ve had a lot of fun and seeing us get better and progress was amazing. My goal for the next season is to have 10 in all dungeons. It doesn’t feel doable saying it but looking at my results from season 2, I should be able to do it. I still can’t believe I’m doing these dungeons.
I’ll probably write a post about both my raiding team and mythic+ dungeon team (both from the lovely community around Girls Gone WoW podcast) later but for now, please bear with me if you have no idea who I’m talking about and how I got to them.
I was also on their podcast. That was a first. It was also scary and incredibly anxiety-inducing but I have anxiety so everything is scary and incredibly anxiety-inducing.. But I enjoyed it 🙂 Our whole team was there so less attention on me helped a lot and we had a lovely (and educational) chat about mythic+ dungeons. We also made fun of our healer and the Moose (our hunter’s pet) as we always do. It was almost as random as our runs but E-J managed to keep us in line. You can check it out here. I’m the nervous person whose first language is obviously not English. You can’t miss me.
Patch 8.2 is coming out today and I can’t wait to finally get my hands on it! New zones to explore! New quests to do! New reputations to grind for flying! New shinies, pets and mounts! All the things!
