Elder Smokimus

Posted by Smokimus on February 25, 2010

If you look to your right, you will notice that Smok is now – “Elder Smokimus”.  Thanks to Iwasreported (aka Boss), Prana (aka The Real Boss), Kwiken (aka The Kraken), and Bromas (aka the person I want to be when I grow up), all of whom ran me through the dungeon Elders.

Please put your seat-backs and tray tables in the up-right position, as this flight will land in about two months when Children’s Week comes around.

For your viewing enjoyment –

Been Busy…

Posted by Smokimus on February 24, 2010

I like the “…” thing.  Don’t know why, just do.

Been busy trying to get the most appropriate title in game for me – “Elder”.  I’m almost done.  Then I’ve got one last achievement before I get a Violet Proto-Drake . It’s the PvP achievement with Children’s Week and I’m not really looking forward to it.  I must have that mount.

Posted pictures on the side of the page. I will add some recent screenshots shortly.  (I promise.)

Mount Hyjal…Yawn

Posted by Smokimus on February 12, 2010

Last night the guild ran Mount Hyjal for the achievement and for fun.  We got the achievement, but the fun…not so much.  I can’t imagine doing this raid at level.  It would have certainly made me consider forgoing any future raids with the unending trash waves followed by what would have been uber hard bosses.  The loot just would not have been worth it.

I know that Kara and other BC instances were great.  Kara seems to be the universally chosen favorite raid of the guild.  I’ve liked it the times I’ve been in there, but I never did it at level and I imagine that would have been amazingly hard.  Certainly interesting though.  Unlike the tedium that is Mount Hyjal.

Will hopefully post screenshots of our run later.

Feet Getting Wet…

Posted by Smokimus on February 3, 2010

I’m fairly new to blogging and am trying to get a better understanding of how it all works.  I’m looking for a way to share my thoughts regarding the game that I’m really enjoying (WoW) in a format that is convenient for me.  I don’t expect to post anything earth shattering, but this is a way for me to express myself in a manner that I find comfortable – using written words.

I’m using this format as opposed to a journal, so that at some point I can get feed-back regarding my use of the medium and my evolution as a communicator of ideas and thoughts.  I hope at some point to be comfortable enough with this to start promoting the blog on more public forums like Blog Azeroth.

If you’ve stumbled upon this, please let me know what you think about using this medium as a form of communication and what you like to see when reading / following a blog.
