For anyone who ever played the old Croc games, you remember when he did his cool little spinney-chuck-norris-wanna-be-roundhouse-kick thing he always said “Ker-Chow!!” That was my favorite, yeah.

Well… this weekend I delivered my own Croc kick to WoW and did a little “Ker-Chow!”… WoW then turned around and Croc Kicked me.

Friday night when I got home from my OT, I sat and looked at my shaman who was sitting at level 78 ½ with a full amount of rested XP till 80. I looked at the clock, and decided that this weekend… she was going to be 80 damnit! So I decided that, for the weekend, Mika was going to be put on stand-by and it was going to be Rei’s weekend.

From about 7-12PM I managed to get her to 79. (It took me a while because I kept having to go AFK for one thing to another. /facepalm.) But before I went to sleep that night, I decided that I was going to get up early, and do nothing all day Saturday until she hit 80.

It was about 9:30 when I started, and by 12 I had gotten halfway. So far so good. By the time I reached 95% I had ran out of quests in Storm Peaks… and I hate Icecrown… so what do I do? It took about 10 minutes of mod butchering in a high spawn area, but I finally got…

by about 4 PM. So what’s the first thing I do?

Finally… she was ready for heroics whoring.

Or so I wished.

I spent all of Saturday night, and all day Sunday dedicating it to my shaman and trying to get her geared, but I have all of 5 purples to show for it. Granted, a little frustrated is definitely the understatement of the situation, but unfortunately I have no control over RNG when I 1. Lose gear, 2. can’t beat the door boss, 3. Can’t get a group because no one wants to compete with a noob for gear AND deal with the door boss.

I tried running a Naxx 10, but Mach wanted to bring a Hunter and another Resto shaman… so needless to say, if I rolled enhancement, I had to roll against an under geared hunter. If I wanted to roll resto, I would have to roll against an under geared shaman. I couldn’t win for lose if my life DEPENDED on it.

So yeah…. The beginning of this weekend was good, the end… not so much.

I have an issue when it comes to my toons. I hate it when my toon is considered ‘under geared’. When Mika hit 80, I was pulling tricks out my ass to put groups together for Naxx and heroics. I wanted her gear BAD. Same with Rei, I want her gear BAD. It bothers me if my toons can’t commit to the content I want them to be able to comfortably walk into.

I want Rei to be able to comfortably walk into a Naxx 25 or Ulduar 10. Yeah, pretty big jump for a fresh 80 not even 3 days old. Her walking around with a green trinket from level 65 I was never able to replace bothers me to the point of I won’t even TOUCH my druid until Rei is geared to the point of my approval.

Even if I have to sit and run heroics day in and day out to get 500 emblems to replace all the greens and blues on her, I will do it. I got over 1000 on Mika so far, I have no issues in farming heroics for lower easy raids for gear. 1. It gives me a chance to get gear for both specs 2. it’s good practice.

Right now, Mika’s time on her game card ran out on Saturday. For the time being… I’m not sure if I should bother re-subbing her for a while because I know in the mean-time, I’m going to be spending most, if not all, of my time on Rei. Granted the guild is still doing Ulduar 10, but I know there are a few healers in the guild who would be more than happy to take my place who actually need the gear.

In other news…

Tomorrow BoO is having a guild meeting where Mach will be announcing the guild changes that he and the officers are making to the guild to give it a more ‘casual progression raiding guild’ feel. I for one am very excited to hear about it. (I’m his GF and I’m still in the fog about certain details, but meh… I’m only a veteran, not an officer. I have to be reminded where my place is from time to time with this kind of stuff to avoid someone calling the ‘favortism’ card. /grumble) But right after the announcement, they’re going to be heading off to ToC 10 man, woot!!

With them luck.

Oh… by the way… on a side note…

I saw Ky and Amber do it a few time, so I’ll go ahead and shoot my own two cents in…

BoO is recruiting… we love long walks in Naxx, and cruising through Ulduar in our giant demolishers. In our spare time we like to farm heroics for badges, sit in vent and chat, and pick on Amber because she sounds like her sister. We’re looking for someone who is funny, witty, and can keep up with the jokes on our resident minor Hunt who takes a beating on a daily basis. If you think you’re this person, you can view our profile at BoO Match-Maker.com.
