The rush after the patch

I think I over did it…but Calizari is at 381ilvl.   My hands are so swelled this morning that I can’t play.  Grrr!!

Got in to see doc fast and he fit me in like usual and I am on oral Prednisone for now.

I hope this stuff works…because I sucked in LFR last night..and still managed to be in the top three overall in the second half….maybe they were sore and stiff fingered like me tho.  At least I got the achievement out of it!

And I know there are many playing this game who have one or more of the many chronic pain diseases/conditions…and I hope the best for them..the best doctor, the best meds and the best luck..because that factors in there too.  Every little bit helps..for diagnosis…for being more comfortable with less pain and most of all a better quality of life.  Because there is no cure for this shit…not for Rheumatoid Arthritis and not for Fibromyalgia…which isn’t what any of us wants to hear.

So for now I watch TV and hope for fast working medication and a chance at an aggressive treatment for this.  Doctor said that by Saturday I should be noticing a big improvement.
I hope he is right.

Through all of this…I got very frustrated with my UI and ended up going with Tukui.  I really like it so far.  I kept my Vuhdo of course but have had an issue with it not recognizing Purify Spirit and seems hit and miss when I try to use it.  Hopefully they have that fixed soon.  Hmmm….looks like Vuhdo just did an update…guess I will log on just to take a peek.  Nothing else to do…afternoon Soap operas are…well….boring.


Bucket Lists

Many bloggers have worked through or are currently working on a Bucket list.  It’s something to get them through until the MoP release.  And considering the amount of people who did the Annual Pass, including myself, that means there are lots of bored toons in Azeroth these days.  For me that list is easy to fill, even though I have been playing for 4 years next month.  What can I say?  I had Raid-on-the-brain!

There are quite a few things I have never done in World of Warcraft.  I use to just fly through leveling a toon for the sole purpose of getting them geared up enough to raid.  Thinking about some of those things lately to see if there are things I would really like to do between now and MoP release. Of course, I found many things to do this summer!

I have never:

1,  done any of the seasonal events. Love is in the Air, Noblegarden, Brewfest, etc.

2.  worked towards any specific achievements outside of Raid completion.  Loremaster achievement is one of the first I will be working on.  I found an add-on that I will be trying out.  Anything to avoid quests that do not count towards that goal.  And since I am currently leveling toons through the Dungeon Finder only, the amount of gold I will make off quests will be greatly appreciated!

3.  camped a mount or farmed old instances for mounts.  I would really like the Time Lost Proto Drake.  Aeonaxx doesn’t thrill me all that much tho but if I got lucky enough to spot it, then why not go for it.

4.  worked on any titles outside of the Explorer title.  Even then I only did it on one toon.

5.  tried RBGs or Arena and since I am going to get back into PvP, maybe I will get the chance to try out an RBG or two.

6.  actively worked on collecting pets.  Any pets I have on any toons were purely luck.

7.  transmogged any of my toons.

8.  leveled Engineering on a toon. It’s the only profession I have never leveled.  Time to fix that.

9.  gotten anywhere near current gold cap.  And that is definitely something to work on, especially with a new expansion coming.

10.  never leveled a tanking toon.  I have thought about leveling a Prot Warrior specifically for farming old dungeons though.  Not really sure about tanking dungeons or anything like that yet.  Maybe a Blood DK to save some time?  That is if I can get the hang of managing Runes.  Decisions, decisions.

So there is a ton of things I have never done in-game.  I guess once I have a new Main, there will be lots to work on while passing the time until MoP.   If the predictions are right, and I think they are, I have plenty of time to get working on most of this list.  That is if I don’t melt in the summer heat.
