Murlocs, Pandas and Turkeys ...Oh WoW!

                              We be some crazy Murlocs, Fool!

I've not been feeling too well the last couple of days so not a lot new going on with me really. *Chews on some pink Pepto tablets*.. I've had a little time to level the Druid, which is almost 74... I am going so slow waiting on the hubby so I don't out level him. We've had a lot of fun with this combo again and I'm glad to be on the alliance for a change of pace. It's nice knowing both sides like the back of my hand, I know every city and outpost which is nice, though sometimes I run into the wrong outpost, which ends up in a life and death chase.

I've gotten my herbing and skinning up where I can use them in Northrend which is making some nice money, trying to save up for our cold weather flying on alliance. We've been doing a lot of quests and having fun, like the screen shot above heh, getting some questing achievements as we go. Next I work on cooking. I need to log into EQ2 but I just haven't had the time, so maybe later this week.. oh noes... This week is Pilgrim's Bounty in WoW! More on that in a bit.

I made a new friend, his name is Super Cute Kung Fu Panda Dude.. ok, it's not. I just call him that, it's really Pandaren Monk. I'm a lover of pets, they make me happy, Super Cute Kung Fu Panda Dude makes me very happy. You can /bow to him and he bows back (which everyone knows, he gets so many people bowing it's funny) and you can also /drink to him, which causes him to sit down and drink his little bottle of.. whatever it is he drinks. We are best buds, he goes everywhere with me. It's funny to see him start doing his cool moves when he gets the whim to show off. What else is cool about him is ALL my characters get one. So literally he goes everywhere with me no matter if I am on Horde or Alliance which is great.

So yeah.. this week is Pilgrim's Bounty! It looks like fun, I can't wait! Just one more day, yes I'm such a fiend for holiday events. Some neat things I noticed:

-If you eat five helpings of any single food, you'll gain benefits unique to that food. In addition, if you eat five helpings of every food, you'll gain the Spirit of Sharing which lasts one hour and increases reputation gained by 10%. This is accomplished much faster if you work together with your fellow feasters at passing food to one another. Very Cool!

-Daily Cooking Quests. I need to get back to leveling my cooking before then!! 

-Pilgrim Items. Ohh nice.. a Turkey Shooter!!

-Last but not least the achievements which award a Plump Turkey Pet and Pilgrim Title! <3 Metzen and the creative development/art team @ Blizzard who design those lovely quests and items! Speaking of.. this is a very awesome site to check out if your a fan of the WoW art.

On a related note, more new stuff, I've seen a lot of mixed feelings on the official WoW forums over the "Gating System" or releasing Icecrown Citadel in stages. Even some fellow bloggers have made some statements of how they feel about it. I really don't have any set opinions so far personally, I suppose that it's meant to be stretched out to engage us until or pretty close to Cataclysm. It's really not a big deal to me either way honestly. I have so much I want to catch up on with the Druid. I have more than enough to keep me busy for awhile. If I didn't.. well if might bother me a bit. How about you, do you like this system? Do you like this way of releasing content or would you rather it all released at once?

I hope you enjoyed my ramblings today... Safe adventures to you!
