Sinking the Sunken Temple

A group of Ravens stormed through the Sunken Temple last night, managing to do the whole thing in about four hours, and only suffering two deaths. Here are some pics, which you can click to see larger versions.

Interesting bit of news, culled from the forums.

Gratuitous Grab of the Day

A gratuitous grab of Leafy in Winterspring, just because the environment struck me as really pretty while I was (slowly) killing a Yeti.

As Chris put it: A small gang of Ravens (Aberas, Andromache, Blayse and Leafshine) went rampaging through the troll population of Hinterlands last night, thinning their population markedly and incidentally freeing young Sharpbeak in the process. A fun time was had by all (I hope!) and various goodies were aquired, including plans for Mithril Spurs.

I'll just add...

a) I don't know what it is, but whatever it is, Leaf's giving it a good kicking:


b) *how* many defuffs?!



Mage Quest

A few nights ago Azadale started on his mage quests. Blayse helped out. No pictures of us fighting through the swamp to see Tabatha, but after we picked up the first quests...

Dire Maul Derring Do

| 0 Comments | 0 TrackBacks

Late last night, a bunch of Ravens decided to explore Dire Maul North, which is largely unexplored territory for us so far. Eldanar, Strobmoli, Rebrall, Edina and Leafshine are bravely attacking a drunken ogre here:


And here, one of Strobmoli's special friends has spent its wooly time running around in the fire…

Sadly, I only managed to take the grab just as the sheep became an ogre again:


Sadly, we wiped just before the end boss, and the combination of respawns and one of the party heading off stopped us for the night. Next time.

Shadowfang Keep

Last night, Blayse, Esatobeen, Valkarn and Kezzle stormed Shadowfang Keep. We were all over powered, especially Blayse, so we slaughtered the whole Keep in less than 3/4 hour. Superb!


Blayse v the dragon

| 0 Comments | 0 TrackBacks

A few days ago Blayse got into a group to fight not one, but two lvl 50 dragons in the Badlands (they're summoned as a pair). We wiped once, but with better pulling managed to separate them and take them down. Fantastic!




A test of the new domain.

WoW on Windows and OSX on the same Mac

| 2 Comments | 0 TrackBacks

This is interesting: the new Intel Macs run WoW faster under Windows than they do in OS X.

They main theories why are:

  1. DirectX is just plain faster than OpenGL
  2. The Intel build of WoW hasn't been optimised just yet.

Still, interesting...

Zarama's new friend

| 1 Comment | 0 TrackBacks

Sewer_1Following a very enjoyable little trip to the Stockades Zarama confirmed that the rumoured crocodile does exist in the canals of Stormwind.

Or - to be more honest, other people confirmed it, and found it, Zarama was fool enough to fall in twice - once while shooting it, and once while trying to escape while being chased along the towpath by said creature.

Valkarn also died while trying to heal Zarama.

The Skype chanel was drowned out by laughing by all concerned.

Jadur, he likes to watch
