Mining 300 on my Death Knight

Tuesday, December 2nd, 2008

My initial plan for Gnomesblight, my Death Knight, was to level up my mining and blacksmithing concurrently, and hopefully take advantage of running through the low-level areas to gain some faction reputation and cookery ingredients. The idea was that if I didn't do this initially it would be frustrating ...

More Death Knight mining

Thursday, November 27th, 2008

After motivating myself to spend some more time as a space cadet I disappointed myself a little when I procrastinated slightly before ending up loading World of Warcraft. It just seems like I have so much to achieve in World of Warcraft at the moment. I would like ...

Weekend warcrafting

Monday, October 13th, 2008

Continuing her questing in Hellfire Peninsula in the Outlands Sapphire finds out just how starving some Hellboars are when even the merest sniff of meat sends a dozen of them hurtling in her direction at once. It is a little irritating, because it means a path has to be ...

World of Progressioncraft

Tuesday, October 7th, 2008

After gaining a couple of levels last week I knew I wouldn't be entering the Outlands quite as soon as the quick progression would suggest, if only because my prepaid time had run out on the account. My new time card was going to take a few days to ...

Sapphire hits 57

Tuesday, September 30th, 2008

A relatively short session in World of Warcraft last night saw my warrior, Sapphire, reach 57th level, putting me just one more level away from having another character running around the Outlands. And it's not just having the Dark Portal open for a character that makes 58th level more ...

Weekend warcrafting

Monday, September 29th, 2008

This weekend's gaming time was again spent mostly in Azeroth, partly because I got the bug for tanking and partly because my game time runs out immintently. I was a little forgetful in ordering a new time card for World of Warcraft and am expecting a break of a ...

Weekend gaming

Monday, September 22nd, 2008

After the hectic week at work it was nice and relaxing to have little to do over the weekend. I passed the time with a fair bit of gaming whilst also taking advantage of the wonderful weather by going out for a few walks. With my small but ...

The Repair Station

Monday, September 1st, 2008

In working to clear The Blockade I wore myself out a little in EVE Online. From picking it up as my first level three mission and finding I had to beat a hasty retreat, to striving to afford a Drake and fittings in order to stand any chance of ...

The key to victory in Alterac Valley

Wednesday, August 27th, 2008

After Sapphire took advantage of the Spirit of Competition and ventured in to Arathi Basin a few times, I took my rogue, Knifey, in to the battlegrounds on the last day of the competition. Quite a bit of PvP action was enjoyed, and I even won a gold medal ...

What's in a name?

Tuesday, August 19th, 2008

Whilst helping to stab orcs in Hellfire Peninsula, Knifey bumped in to someone called Epicstupity. I didn't stop to ask if it was an intentionally ironic name, just in case it wasn't.
