So, how ’bout them pandas?

Brajana has re-equiped her bow.

And then about 10 minutes later she replaced it with a green.  Figures.


Gun Lovin’ Dwarf Chick has reloaded!

Thursday, September 9th, 2010

If you don’t remember, the Gun Lovin’ Dwarf Chick was one of the top Hunter blogs in the community not so long ago.  She was even part of my inspiration in creating my own Bow Lovin’ Dwarf Chick.

If you knew where to find her, you may have read some of her musings since GLDC was officially shut down, but now she’s returned from her many various adventures and is back at Gun Lovin’ Dwarf Chick ready to shoot stuff and write about it.  So make sure you stay up to date!

Gun Lovin’ Dwarf Chick!


Twitter-sized Updates (a.k.a. Surviving the Lull)

Thursday, July 15th, 2010

It’s that time again!  That time when the current content starts to feel a bit stale, and all anyone can think about is the new expansion that is just barely over the horizon.  Also, summer.  I hear there’s sunshine and fun to be had outside, or something.  *shrug*   

So what’s a blogger to do?  I could write about all the breaking news from the Cataclysm Beta that’s been coming out, but I am actually trying to avoid spoilers and wait to see it all myself when the time comes.  I could rehash all my random dungeon adventures, but after a while they seem to all become the same story.

The blogging desire is still within me.  Quite often I’ll sit down with a blank text box open and just try to type something.  But there is very little inspiring to write about right now!  I’m determined not to give up, and I don’t consider my blog abandoned, but I am just waiting for that divine intervention to start flowing through my fingertips.

Until then, I will try to post at least once a week.  It might not be particularly inspired or helpful, but maybe it’ll give me a chance to keep my writing muscles in shape, and even give you a nice break from all the “ZOMG LOOK AT THIS STUFF IN THE BETA!”

Today, I will post Twitter-sized updates on various aspects of my life:

Raiding: Got to 10/12 in H ICC before our 10-man guild dwindled to a 3-man. Other games and activities have put us on a summer/pre-Cata hiatus.

Brajana: With no one to conquer raids with, my hunter is taking her own personal hiatus. Probably won’t see Ruby Sanctum at all! :(

Kaeira: My Prot Paly hit 80! Geared up and making it through Heroics. I make a fine tank, if I do say so myself! Still scared of raids though…

New Alts: Finally got a rogue past level 12! Hoppi the gnome (20) has been my new focus, in a friend’s guild where people actually still play.

Other games: Got a bit carried away with Steam’s sales. I’ve got a list of games to keep me busy such as Mass Effect 1&2, Torchlight, World of Goo!

Real life: Started a new job a few weeks ago. Adjusting to the un-unemployed life slowly… less recreation time, but the paycheque makes up for it.


We now return to our regularly scheduled blog posts…

Hey!  Remember me?

It’s been a while, I know.  I have excuses upon excuses to throw at you, like how finals came out of no where, and then my computer bit the bucket, and I had 2 weeks of computer-less vacation… but I won’t tell you about all that non-sense.  I’ll just stick to the stuff that really matters.

Like my shiny new TITLE!

I’m now Brajana the Kingslayer since several weeks ago my guild and I finally took down the Lich King!  Since then we’ve been progressing through Heroic 10 and are currently ranked 4th on our server (and 1st if you just count 10-only guilds)!  Unfortunately, I’ve been absent from a big chunk of this progress.

The rare times I have had some time to log in, I’ve been working on my alts.  Mostly, it goes like this:

  1. Log into Ferguson, queue up to heal a dungeon.
  2. Log out of Ferguson in frustration after barely making it through the dungeon with some failtank.
  3. Log into Kaeira to level my tank, so I don’t have to deal with failtanks.

So, Kaeira is getting a lot more love than dear Ferg.  I’m actually contemplating making him full-time Shadow, because maybe healing just isn’t my thing.

There you have it.  A quick update to get the ball rolling again!  Thanks for sticking around during my extended AFK!


Reminder: My Guide To Merrymaking!

Monday, December 14th, 2009

In the spirit of shameless self-promotion, I thought I’d throw a link out to my achievement guide from last year: A Guide to Merrymaking!

Winter Veil starts tomorrow, and if you’re working on your [Merrymaker] meta-achievement, you might find some help from there.  I’ve updated it to reflect the 3.3 changes and everything!

Happy Hunting, and Merry Winter Veil!
