Rift: Ding 70!





Earlier this week I hit the new cap of 70 in Rift. It has been quite an enjoyable expansion so far. There have been a few hiccups, but for the most part it has been a great expansion to hop into and just go. Very classic MMO, no prerequisite content needed. No weird stats you need as you level on gear you don't have. The upgrades you get as you go are sufficient and with the right spec things start ramping up as you progress to the cap. Legendary abilities start to shine and I really like these!

Rift: Scatherran Forest!


Sharing some shots from Rift's new zone Scatherran Forest today. It is lovely and whimsical, full of critters, unicorns, giant squirrels many other creatures with unique new looks.

Rift: Starfall Prophecy




Another day, another expansion launches! Today's experience was a lot more exciting and less confusing. No rants here today, read on to see why I'm pretty excited about Starfall Prophecy.

Kunark Ascending- Blunt First Impression (UPDATED)

Sorry, wrong Kunark, it will be a bit before you get to see the outdoors!

Kunark Ascending launched today. It has been quite sometime since I was ready and playing at cap when an expansion launched. Sometimes it is nice to wait until the crowd thins out and all the kinks have been ironed out. Want to know what I thought so far? Read on. (Update at bottom with some notes on a few things)

Skyrim



With all the enthusiasm over the Skyrim special edition, I decided to load up my game and start a fresh character. I am not playing special edition though, just playing with several mods to improve visuals and a few fun things like mounts, pets and followers.  A refreshing game to hop into and just explore and wander around in.

Heroes' Festival

Mostly puttering around in EQ2 waiting on the expansion, decorating houses (WIP pictured above) and just goofing off in general with the Heroes' Festival. Good stuff.

Creepy Things!

A creepy castle in EverQuest. Some shots today of my travels in EQ, EQ2 and Rift as well as Aura Kingdom.

Weekly Travels

Back to EverQuest with my partner in crime, Dire. We decided to roll up some alts and just have fun going through old content. My name via the random name generator, heh. His is pretty funny for a monk!

Expansion Ponderings




Today the EQ2 team did an expansion livestream on Facebook for Kunark Ascending, which I really enjoyed. There was a lot of cool information for the expansion. You can find the video here, you don't need an account to watch it. It is due out Nov 15, granted everything goes smoothly.

Rift: Dimension Showcase (Harvest Meadow, Gloamwood Glen)






Sharing a few pics with a couple of my dimensions in Rift today. The Harvest Meadow and Gloamwood Glen. I love the fact that you can have so many dimensions in Rift and share them easily across alts. It has to be my absolute favorite thing about Rift, the gorgeous dimensions. There are so many talented people in the community, they always astound me with their creativity.

My Time



WoW's legion launch has come and gone and I already cancelled when it was time to renew my account. This month just playing some different things, checking out some stuff I've been away from for awhile.

Legion Thoughts



Legion has been out a little over two weeks. I hit 100 on my main within five days, that Sunday after release. A nice leisurely pace for my first, and possibly only 100, this expansion. Here's what I think so far about Legion.

BINGO! Have fun and socialize over a game of bingo!


Isn’t the joy of playing online bingo on the sites just multiplied with the ability to connect with the friendly chat hosts and your online bingo buddies? Yes, you got it right! Most of the bingo sites have interactive chat rooms where players get to chat with each other and have good time while playing their favorite bingo games. This exclusive element of bingo sites is what gets more people playing the game.

Postcards From Norrath

Some shots of EQ2 today. Still playing on the side a bit, I love EQ2 so it is hard to stay away for long. This shot is in one of my all time favorite zones, The Village of Shin. I would love to have a whole expansion with this theme, or even some player housing!

Legion




Legion is here finally! It has been nice to delve in and take part on all these new adventures. I have only been working on one character, though I have seen friends getting a start on all their character's artifact weapons. For me it has been most fun just taking things slow, enjoying the newness and taking everything in. The newness will wear off soon enough so I will enjoy it as long as I can!

Monday, August 29, 2016

Countdown




The countdown to Legion is on, only a few hours left! I will be logging in, hopefully logged in so when it rolls over I will be ready to go. Being on a late schedule doesn't hurt, heh. I did not get everything done that I wanted to but I'm fine about that. I didn't want to burn myself out over the past week so I only logged in briefly a few times to do invasions. I have all the sets for mogging, several bat pets and I don't think there is anything else I need or want.

Ramping Up




Fishing with my little buddy. (Petamorph wand)


This week the invasions ramp up in WoW, and there is a new part of the story to do (kind of). Add in some updates from EQ2 such as the new level 95 heroic characters (get one free) and there is just so much to do right now! Oh, they are having a sort of invasion event in EQ2 as well, public quests are back!

Something Old, Something New, Seven Years Later

I think one of my favorite things about this blog, why I still blog, is that I always have things to look back on. Rarely do I go back to read an old post but often I look back at the pictures. Google search for images of games often pops up a lot of my own and it is always nice to think back on those images and then I may go read the post to think back on. Seeing when Dire, my son, my brothers or old friends were in the shots. It never fails to make me smile, sometimes it is sad as well, not playing with them in these games we used to play together all the time. I started this blog back in 2009, around this time of the year. So this will mark seven years for me blogging here. I am not nearly as dedicated as I was in the early years, each year I seem to get worse and worse about a schedule. But it is something special to me, something I am proud to have stuck with. So, thank you for reading, I do it for me, but also to share the games I play, thoughts and pictures with readers. I'm still here, saving massive amounts of screenshots to post, heh. Sometimes I have so many words in my head it is exasperating to try to get them all out. These posts are often just easier and faster for me to make sure to get a post up with.

Death, Demon Hunters, And Invasions!




video


Demon Hunters and invasions galore! The latest patch for WoW has been quite interesting. It has been nice to log in with some new stuff this week. I always am quick to criticize something I do not like and I like to also give praise to the things I really do appreciate. I have to say the polish is something we have to come to love about Blizzard and there is no lack of it in this update.

Changes




Tomorrow Demon Hunters arrive in WoW, as well as demon invasions. I am pretty happy to finally be able to try out the DH class, and it will be nice to collect some cosmetic gear during the event. It will give me something fresh to do, so I plan on trying to enjoy it all, not rush through it.

Friday, August 5, 2016

Sour Grapes






It seems next week we'll be seeing invasions for the next pre-patch in WoW, as well as being able to play Demon Hunters if you have pre-ordered. Class changes have already hit, in the Pre-pre-patch... So today I wanted to talk about that, my thoughts on the pace of the content and some thoughts on what else I have been playing.

Summer Is Heating Up



Things are starting to ramp up with many MMOs this summer. Plenty to do, lots of summertime events going on, or coming up soon. WoW is releasing the pre-expansion patch today, some of the fun stuff, more on that in a bit. EQ2 has a time limited event server up, with some interesting loot. Rift just released a patch with the summer event, as well as Trove having a birthday with login rewards. I think SWTOR has some stuff going on too, but at this point my plate is overflowing.

Riders of Icarus- First Impressions



Last week I tried out one of the newly 'released' games (open beta as of now) Riders of Icarus. It seems to be pretty decent of a game thus far. This isn't a review, merely throwing my thoughts out there on my impression of the game so far with some shiny pics.

An Unexpected Visit (SL)

I rarely, if ever, log into Second Life anymore. However, today Twiglet asked me to log in to see her land before she released it and sends all her things back to inventory. It is absolutely beautiful, the job she has done with decorating. I wanted to show off the gorgeous items that designers (other players) are able to create and how players with an eye for design can create some beautiful places within the game. It was really lovely, too lovely not to share. For some odd reason her avatar was blocked from viewing, lol, that's SL being SL for you... Sigh.

Eye Candy: Shameless Selfie Edition

Capturing shots as I travel across various worlds ;) Starting off with a shameless WoW selfie... I cannot wait for the Legion pre-patch to hit... Cosmetic rewards! That and I am down to like five bag slots on most of my characters. It cannot come soon enough. I am guessing around July 19th, from reading up. Let's hope it is that close.

Lego Worlds!


Sharing some shots of Lego Worlds today. Very cool little game, especially with multiplayer via Steam. Last time I played it had many issues with the multiplayer aspect, but hopefully that will get cleaned up soon. Lots of fun and a very cool looking world. If you want to check it out, you can find it on Steam, looks as if it is 30% off with the summer sale too.

Eye Candy: Aura Kingdom

Sharing some shots from Aura Kingdom today! I caught some good ones ;) Pictured above is a capture from in-game fishing.

Free Stuff!



I thought I'd pass on some of the Humble Bundle codes. Some of these I don't play and have no use for or I just don't want them. So basically first come first serve, going to post the codes under the description. Maybe someone will find something they like here :) Enjoy!

BTW-- I am just copying and pasting for ease of access, those redeemed boxes are from my claiming the codes to post here, so try them out if you want the items. Listed items, codes at bottom.

Play-log: June




There is a really nice Humble Bundle out with lots of cool stuff, including some goodies for several MMO games. There is some stuff for Wildstar too, which caught my attention. If you haven't checked it out you can find it here. Good stuff all around. Anyhow, onto what I've been finding interesting as of late.

Wildstar At 50

Finally at 50 getting to see places I have been reading about or hearing about. It is nice to finally see all the zones and progress through them. Even going back for things is cool too. I'm still having a lot of fun at 50, more so than I thought I would. 50 has been quite enjoyable thus far.

Checking In




I wanted to write a post on some of the older games I have checked into recently, as well as some I haven't checked into for quite awhile. Some of them are pretty obscure and just things I downloaded on a whim. Going to try to keep the post from droning on but at the same time just making some notations on what I've peeked into. Shall we start?

Bit of A Delay...






A bit of a delay in any type of posting, as I had some icky computer issues. My computer called it quits. First I thought it was the monitor, then the video card, then the ram, I think in the end it was the motherboard. Both motherboard and processor were not all that great to begin with, though the computer should have lasted quite a bit longer. A few months ago we made a huge move and maybe that had something to do with it, who knows.

Goofing Off- EQ2, Rift

Sharing some shots today from EQ2 and Rift. As EQ2 just had a lot of fun events end, but Rift has the five year anniversary going on! Happy birthday Rift! Lots of cool rewards this year and new things to do. Much more fun than popping balloons constantly. If you were there for the first anniversary-- remember the balloon popping raids? I sadly popped a few alone this year, but overall this year is much more fun, especially with the instant adventure! (Pictured above is a house I am decorating in EQ2, house actors propped onto a mount: Dire and my character  posed to sit together gazing into the sunset, even if we don't play it together. Awww...)

EverQuesting!



EverQuest hit the 17 year mark recently! Happy Birthday to EQ! We made a couple of beastlords, Dire and I. It was fun to go back and check some old haunts, like unrest. I think the reason I still play to this day is because I know how much he loves the game still. We don't play nearly enough though. Still trying to get him to return to EQ2... sigh.

Eye Candy From A Long Time Ago In A Galaxy Far, Far Away....



A few shots from a while back. Working on my Jedi in SWTOR, she is sitting in her 50's now. I really need to get her to the new content. It is always a lot of fun jumping back in and leveling. I was meaning to post these for so long... Not as long as the title suggests, ha!

Black Desert Shots


I've been dabbling around with Black desert online. Busy these days but I had to try this one out. Housing, sandbox elements and a really awesome character creator. SO much to learn, especially while playing it on the side. But plenty to do!

Marvel's MMORPG





For quite a while I ignored the fact that the biggest name in entertainment had its own super-sized MMO online. If you ask me, Marvel's gotten a little bit over-extended, and at this point I'm kind of just annoyed whenever I see their logo or hear talk of a new movie or TV show they're putting out. The lineup of upcoming Marvel films extends to 2020, for cryin' out loud. Nevertheless, I can't say I haven't been a little intrigued by the Marvel Heroes MMO. After a friend specifically recommended I give it a shot, I did just that.

Blade & Soul Impressions!





January was a busy month, sorry for the lack of posts, hopefully after the next week things will slow down soon. The new year rang in with me being really sick and then a bunch of stuff going on IRL, ANNNNND then Blogger wanted to be stupid when I finally sat down to write this.... Sigh. I did manage to jump into Blade and Soul though, I've been waiting on this game for quite some time! Today I'll share my thoughts thus far.

Happy New Year!

Happy New Year! Sharing some shots from my adventures in Rift! Wishing everyone a great New Year!

Christmas Stuffz



Christmas has come and gone, thus I've been pretty busy. I did get to poke into a few Christmas events and grab some sweet holiday loot. I'm still working though collecting a few more things! I didn't get too much in the way of gaming gifts, but I got pretty much the only stand alone game I really wanted but had been holding off on. I spent a lot of time creating some gifts this year, which always cuts into gaming.

It's Beginning To Look A Lot Like Christmas!




So much to do so little time! So many neat holiday events, it is always so hard to pick which games to enjoy when the holiday events roll around. I always look forward to the holidays in MMO games. This year I'm trying not to balance too much though, just so I can enjoy those I am taking part in. Which are the most intriguing to you this year?

You can call me Queen... Queen of The Screenshots... 

Picking back up on my adventures in Neverwinter, this time I've brought Dire along. I'm also sharing some adventures in some lesser known MMO games in open beta today. click past the break to read on!

Postcards From Neverwinter


It's my birthday today! Sharing some of my favorite things from Neverwinter, sparkle unicorns, paladins and gorgeous places to adventure! I've brought Dire along with me this time around, sadly none of my screenshots saved with us both, more to come though!

Dimensional

Sharing some shots from Rift. Mostly some dimensions I've been working on across my alts. Probably my favorite thing about Rift these days, fun stuff. That and playing my many alts :)

Unexpected Surprises





This week I wanted to talk about the STWOR companion changes, my fresh 65 in Rift with the newest area, Plane Touched Wilds, as well as some thoughts on WoW's 11th anniversary.

Midnight Cove

Sharing some shots on a new new dimension build I'm working on in Rift. It's on FB, Midnight Cove. I wanted something dark, using the pitch black sky helped create a very dark feeling. I also wanted to fill up the dark with many warm lights. Still a work in progress but thought I'd share some pics anyhow!
