Well, today's the day!   Yep, it's patch 5.0.4 and that means going a whole day without playing because it's a huge pre-expansion patch! I've been around long enough that I already expected extended maintenance so I've spent my time waiting for the patch getting ready to play tomorrow.  While other people are at work, playing other games, or out having a life I've been cooking and cleaning.

I have tomorrow's various meals all made so they'll only have to be reheated.   The laundry's been done a little early in order to get my most comfy pajama pants cleaned.   I got in the grove and got more housework than expected.

There's not a lot I'm doing tonight in-game.  I'm mostly farming netherweave cloth to make bags for alts.  This is going by super fast as it seems my blood DK is no longer capable of being hit by anything ever. Pull ALL the things!  Tomorrow starts my army of alts, though I'm not sure what to roll.   I had ideas for characters in mind, but I find myself burned out on their ideas already.  Non-rp toons might have the best chance of surviving after next month.

Hope y'all are enjoying the changes and new goodies!

With the new patch coming out tomorrow, time is running out before Theramore Isle is changed forever. For those of you who who wish to visit it before the changes, here's the breakdown of what's happening:

  • The city will be untouched when the patch hits.
  • When the Theramore scenario is unlocked, the event quests will be phased.
  • When the quests are completed, Theramore will be permanently changed for that character.
  • The area will be permanently changed for everyone with 5.1
So, we have about a month of access to the old Theramore. And as much as I'll miss the old, I'm very excited about the new lore and new quests that are sure to come of it! I took a few screenshots on my visit. Feel free to scroll through them.

Howdy there!

Underachieveing in WoW and RL!

Introductions are really awkward, aren't they?  So let's just do the quick version before moving on!  Y'all can call me Soubrette.  I've lucked and creeped around the WoW blog community for awhile, but now think it's time to come out from my hidey-hole.

This blog is mostly a place where I can yammer on and on about World of Warcraft without annoying all of my non-gaming friends.  I'm very much into role playing, leveling alts, doing player challenges, transmog, and just experimenting with the game in general.  I'm definitely not the raiding type and math hurts my head so there really won't be any in-depth information about PvE or class dynamics.

On to today's topic!  One popular discussion that's been showing up everywhere is planning for the patch and for the panda invasion.   If you'll look up to the left of this entry, my waggle-shammy illustrates my own preparations. I think I'm the only one I know who doesn't have some sort of bucket list.  I just can't seem to be bothered.

I do have plans for after MoP hits.  After I stop obsessively battling pets for the first few days, I'm going to make myself a Pandaren Shaman who will serve as my main for this expansion.  I'm also going to start getting back into roleplay.   Most of my plans for when the path hits involve mass looting.  I want to gather netherweave for alt starting bags and finish up a few of the easier BC rep grinds.  Of course, I'm not discounting the possibility that I'll snap and come up with an overly ambitious plan last minute.  It happens.
