Sapphire Charges to 66th Level

Sunday, October 26th, 2008

Experience can be gained by killing mobs, completing quests, and exploring the world. There is only so much of the world to see, and quests generally require some spilling of blood, so experience points are most regularly gained by killing mobs. That is, when the mob dies. Because of this, I was taken quite by […]

Sapphire the Protection Warrior v3.02

Wednesday, October 22nd, 2008

The world has changed again and I woke up with a pain of respeccing, even though I thankfully hadn't paid for the headache. Not only do I have to choose all my talents again but many are changed and some are new. It is not too much of a chore as I only really know […]

Hannibal, Mr T, Murdoch, and BRAAAANES

Thursday, October 16th, 2008

We were attacked by eighteen zombies! 'A-Team zombies?' Yes. They were shut inside a crypt with only discarded spears, broken scythes and mismatched bones with which they created a working arbalest, but it was okay. We took quite a pounding, thrown all over the place by the arbalest, but got up only feeling a bit […]

Marking Profession Achievements

Monday, October 13th, 2008

In an effort to keep their professions relevant both Knifey and Sapphire manage to train their first aid skill up to the old skill cap of 300, and a bit of work sees them both reach skill level 300 with cooking as well. On top of that, Sapphire is able to create enough rings and […]

Separated at Birth?

Sunday, October 12th, 2008

Does someone have access to the barber shop before it is open? Even so, what's he doing with my face? And my ram? I need a lie down.

We Are Heroes

Thursday, October 9th, 2008

Investigating the old keep has turned up pit traps, goblins and hobgoblins, and rats and devil hounds. The few hours we have so far spent working through enemy-infested rooms have taken their toll on the party, with our Warlord's healing surges fully depleted and others running out quickly. It is time to rest. Rather than […]

Sapphire's Choice

Monday, October 6th, 2008

Having made the journey to the Outlands it would be foolish not to risk travelling the road to Shattrath City, where I can set my hearthstone to take advantage of portals to every capital city in Azeroth, particularly when I have recently considered the utility of the decision to keep my home at the Exodar. […]

Sapphire Enters the Outlands

Sunday, October 5th, 2008

After hearing Knifey talk of his first step through the Dark Portal to visit the Outlands, with its strange new creatures and otherworldly landscapes, I have been keen to see the new world for myself. Having explored most of Azeroth and defeated many of its deadliest denizens I feel prepared to face a greater challenge. […]

Ranger vs. Corpse

Thursday, October 2nd, 2008

We interrupt some goblins who are digging for treasure, an application of their time we later find out to be like most nine-to-five jobs as it is a task given by their boss merely to keep them occupied. We manage to find this out after neither finding no treasure in the room nor any sign […]
