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.)

Damn the Completionist in Me!

Posted by Smokimus on February 15, 2010

I’m a competionist by nature.  I don’t like starting something and not finishing.  This is problematic in WoW as there really isn’t any “end”.

Did I mention that I’m an alt-o-holic?

Add completionism and altoholism and you have a very bad combination.  This is doubly so when there are events like the holiday events in game.   Smoki has completed the Love Is In The Air events/achievements and my DK alt Muradizon is trying to complete it as well.  Don’t know if he will be able to do this as he is only lvl 73/74, but we are going to give it a good solid try.

Then we are going to finish the Lunar Festival Event,  I’m pretty sure all of my alts that are higher than lvl 66 can do this.  I’ve been staying up way too late to get these done, but I can’t help it.  I…Must…Finish…The…Holiday….Events.

For alts that can’t finish the events, the experience received from them is too much to pass up.  I guess I will be seeing how little sleep I can have and still be “productive”.
