Early Access for the Galactic Starfighter Expansion to SWTOR just got started today. And I have already managed to feel like a total noob in my first ever Galactic Starfight. I managed not to self destruct. And I did get some dmg in on a few of the opponents. But most of all I was just very confused about the movement and targeting.
I played in the Lost Shipyards Battle Zone where the goal of the game is to fight off the enemy Starfighters (from the opposing faction) while taking control of three satellites to gain control over the Shipyard.
There is a tutorial you can do before jumping in to an actual PvP Zone, and you can do it more than once. I did it twice before I went in to my first fight and it did help a lot with the understanding of the game mechanics for Starfighters.
All in all it does seem like a cool game within the game so to say. And I think I will like it once I get the hang of the movement.
I have a confession to make: I have a soft spot for Hozen. I’m not really sure why. I guess it could be because they are oooking awesome!
Out in Kun-Lai there is this hozen called Mo Mo that you come across when doing the The Burlap Trail quests (the quests you do to get your very own Grummlepack). I love the names of the spells he casts, Hurt You and Heal Me. He’s almost like a hozen druid.
Just in case someone has missed it: You can go to Timeless Isle before level 90. And it’s really easy to get there. It’s best if you have water walking so you can ride over the water. But if you don’t have it you can just swim. If you swim without any sort of swim speed buff you’ll probably die, but as I understand it you’ll ress on the island.
The last toon I got over there was my alliance priest and she got there without dying with just Levitate and the speed buff from Body and Soul.
Once upon a time I used to PvP quite a bit, both on my own and with my PvP maniac of a hubby. But due to my health I haven’t been able to PvP to the same extent and when I have played PvP it hasn’t been as enjoyable. So I haven’t done any arenas since WotLK.
Over the last few weeks the hubby has been playing arenas with some of our friends. And every time I see them I get this feeling: “I want to do that too!” So, since I’ve been feeling a bit better I decided to give it a go and try some 2v2.
We went in to the arena with the expectation to die a horrible death due to my lack of gear, rusty skills and the fact that there’s a lot of new stuff I have no clue about. But it didn’t go so bad in the end. We had a lot of fun and I think we’ll be doing some more arenas soon.
My paladin and the hubby’s hunter, happy about the arena fun time!
~~Alt Appreciation and Warlock Week is planned by Lae over at World of Lae. ~~
It’s been a warrior intense weekend so far. The warrior that has been played most here at home the last few days is actually not mine but one of the hubbies. He’s decided to level his alliance warrior a bit and that means I get to heal him! So I thought I’d give him a short shout out here at the start of the post.
My monk and the hubbies warrior.
Most of my experience with warriors actually comes from healing them. It is one of the classes I have played the least. But lately warriors have been getting a lot of love. They have received a lot of improvements and fun minor glyphs that add a lot of flavor. They are also considered one of the “flavor of the month” classes in PvP at the moment. So it’s really hard not to get on board the proverbial warrior train.
Through out the years I have had a few warriors, but only one of them made it past level 10…and she got stuck in the mid 20′s after being a PvP twink for a while. But now I have a warrior that I love and really want to stick with, a little panda lady on the alliance side.
Yes, she needs a transmog as soon as she dings 40.
I’m not sure why I’ve had such a hard time sticking with my warriors before. It could be that I have been trying to level them all as DPS, but this time I’ve decided to go about it differently. I’ll be playing my little panda with a prot spec as main spec. And as if that wasn’t enough, I just love the way she moves. She looks like she’s straight out of a kung-fu movie. I could probably watch her all day.
Last night I came across the hashtag #NaNoWriMo on Twitter. I had never seen it before so I had to google it. Apparently it stands for “National Novel Writing Month”; a challenge to write a novel that is 50,000(+) words long, all during the month of November.
I love to write, both fiction and non-fiction. However, I have written very little for a few years now, especially in the fiction department. I do miss it and on many occasions have I had a fleeting thought that I should pick up writing again. So the idea of spending extra time on writing during November is very appealing to me.
I am however a bit sceptical that I will be able to write 50k words. I see a few hurdles that might get in my way:
- I am not prepared. It’s November 1st and I haven’t done any prep work. If I do this next year again I will prep ahead of time so I can start writing on the 1st.
- Flash fiction is my strongest suit when it comes to writing. 50k words is like 50-100 flash fiction stories…omg!
- Last but by no means least: my health. I won’t be able to focus for too long and my energy will run low fast. And there will probably be days where I can’t write at all.
But even so I think I will give it a go. It’s inspiring to know that people all around the world are writing this month, and I want to be part of that. So even if I don’t make it to 50k words during November I’m okey with that. I see this first year of participating in National Novel Writing Month as a trial run and as motivation to get back to writing.
It’s Day of the Dead in Azeroth. If you equip and use the bouquet of orange marigolds that you can buy from the seasonal vendors at the graveyards in the capital cities you can see that the spirits are having a real party!
The Day of the Dead is a time to honor your ancestors and get a seasonal battle pet while doing so. If you give some bread of the dead to a cheerfull spirit you will get a Macabre Marionette as a reward. Have a look here for a more detailed run down on how to do the quest.
I love how this little guy dances as soon as you stand still, he’s headbanging all over the place! Due to the awesome headbanging I think I’ll name him Trujillo after Robert Trujillo, who really does know how to move.
