Latest Patch change for 3.1 Engineering related

Engineers can now obtain the schematics for Lil' Smoky and the Pet Bombling from certain creatures found in Gnomeregan. Specialized Gnomish or Goblin engineers can obtain both schematics equally. The repeatable quest that used to randomly grant these schematics has been disabled.

Looks like I will be running Gnomeregan again soon.

When You Got the Glow.

So far only have adjusted the glow function on the mouse.
Makes me think of a movie from my youth.
The Last Dragon

Helping the economy one piece at a time.

In an effort to help the economy I spent part of my tax rebate for a new mouse. Not any mouse mind you but the World of Warcraft MMO Gaming Mouse.

I got it yesterday at Best Buy along with some game time cards. An interesting note is there is no CD included (cost savings?) so you have to download the driver. I will post more this evening as I need to get to work and the driver has yet to finish downloading.

Grinding in the Forgotten Desert of Silithus

After some minor dabbling on the PTR I went back to live. I decided to go after the one last recipe for cooking Dirge's Kickin' Chimaerok Chops. To get the quest I need to get to neutral with Brood of Nozdormu rep in Silithus getting 200 silithid carapace fragments for the repeatable quest The Path of Righteous A side benefit of doing this is I am able to skill up weapons as I grind for drops. The first I managed to cap at 400 was Unarmed earning me:

Did Somebody Order A Knuckle Sandwich?

Master of Arms

To max out the rest of my weapons I need to take an axe, bow, crossbow, dagger, polearm, stave, thrown, and two-handed sword. I think I might break on Silithus to get my fishing up to 450 currently siting on 435 at the moment.

The Six Game

It's the Six Game, where you post the sixth Screenshot in your folder, regardless of what it is. Kordwar over at WTF, are you survival? tagged me.

To set the scene I was fishing in Orgrimmar for Old Crafty

So, now I have to tag someone, eh? Okay, I tag ~One Among Many~

Train Wrecker and 3.1 Engineering Additions / Changes So Far

Well I finally got on the PTR only to be in a random crash fest.
But here are the engineering changes I found.

Two engineering item changes:

Flexweave Underlay also grants 10 Agility.

Nitro Boosts also grants 12 Critical Strike Rating.

Was finally able to able to get to Dalaran and buy 3 new schematics.

High-powered Flashlight

Good for 49 twinks?

Springy Arachnoweave

Comparable to Flexweave Underlay with spell power instead of agilty.

Reticulated Armor Webbings

About worthless can work only on Plate gloves.

The vendor item is Wind-Up Train Wrecker

Calling 3.1 ETA 4 hourss, Talent discussion while waiting

After many days I have finally gotten myself twinned and teleported to experience events in the near future that is ahead of me.

Why don't the talents have the same in each? At level 80 you have 71 points available which can fill all but 3 points in BM tree, all but 5 in MM tree, and all but 7 in the SV tree. So why is there a dispartity in the talents per tree? Should you get the entire tree if you put all available points in it? Just thoughts in my head while I wait for the ptr to download.

Yes I am The Love Fool

Once last attempt I managed to get it. I found the best thing to do is zoom into 1st person and watch the timer on the button then click to set then click to fire on mouse.

2 seconds shy of being a Love Fool

Thought I was going to get the Love Fool title but can't complete The Pink Rocket' Glare in time. Personally the 20 second time allotted is not enough, losing by 1 or 2 seconds. Even the Frenzied Firecracker was 30 seconds to do the same thing. Why did Blizzard have to make this on different?

Did get in on an MC pug at max we had 14 people but I was one of three 80s rest were less including a 56 hunter running the raid. After we started another group started running MC with all 80s. I wonder how they did as we only killed 3 of the bosses after close to two and half hours in MC. We got Lucifron, Gehennas and Garr. Couldn't get enough coordination to kill the packs at once before Magmadar and we wiped hard on Baron Geddon but we only had one healer at that point so the hunter called it. No engineering drops either but did get my Hydraxxian Waterlords to Honored.

Chef Thracyyus available realm for jumping

Figured I would post again since I finally have the Chef title. Plus after belatedly seeing a comment from ~One Among Many~it gave me added motivation to post about it. Kudos to you ~One Among Many~ :) . I am only missing Recipe: Dirge's Kickin' Chimaerok Chops of which I need to collect thousands of Silithid Carapace Fragments to get the faction with Brood of Nozdormu.

I moved to Garrosh server during a free move. This may not have been the best idea in retrospect but then again waiting over an hour and half to get onto Cenarius was the reason for moving. So currently I am looking for a new place to call home that has people that would like to run old content so I can get rep and get the following missing recipes:

1) Force Reactive Disk from random boss drop in MC
2) Biznicks 247x128 Accurascope from random boss drop in MC
3) Core Marksman Rifle from random boss drop in MC
4) Rocket Boots Xtreme from random drop off Mekgineer Steamrigger in the Steamvault
5) Stabilized Eternium Scope from random drop off Attument the Huntsmen in Karazhan
6) Surestrike Goggles v3.0 from random drop in Sunwell Plateau
7) Mekgineer's Chopper - aka Motorcycle - from purchase when exalted with Alliance Vanguard

1) Smelt Elementium via Goblin's Guide to Elementium from Krixix (no longer need mind control) in BWL
2) Smelt Hardened Khorium via Study of Advanced Mining from random drop in Sunwell Plateau

1) Dirge's Kickin' Chimaerok Chops see above for details
