|Babyseat, WoW style. Lawl.|
We're finally moved and settled into the new house. It is quite large, we finally have a room dedicated to the computers! Something I have wanted for a long time. After ten years of living in apartments- this is Dire and my first house together. It is lovely and my mother is my next door neighbor. While very thankful and happy, there is just so much to do. Everytime I turn around I am on my feet doing something else. I was over exhausted for a few days there but I'm much better now.
That being said, I have made time to play my games the past couple of days. Tonight I decided not to log right in and write instead, well by now it is more so the early AM, still going, heh. Tomorrow I have a long list of things to do but I wanted to jot down some things while they were fresh in my mind still.
WoW is going well. My brothers are both approaching 90, high 80's as I write this. Dire is still playing, but my son is more so into LoL, Minecraft and the new SimCity game lately. I haven't had any time to play my alts, think I will leave whatever I was working on, well, for when I have more time. Mostly I've been puttering around gathering nifty fun items.
I managed to grab the locket that gives the illusion (Kalytha's Locket) of a ghostly Night Elf. It has a short cool down and lasts twice as long as the CD. I love it, I can be a NE lock, lol. I also nabbed the gnome who drops the illusion pirate hat, which turns you into a ghostly gnome. You have to wear the hat but it is fun to wear in town.
My biggest accomplishment, as far as illusion items go, would be the AiLi's Skymirror, which gives you the illusion of your target for ten minutes. Very awesome, sadly it has an hour cool down, fun to play with though. She has been the only MoP Champion to give me any trouble. She does nasty damage and HAS to be interrupted when healing or she heals to full. Really it is all about timing with this fight, when to move, when to interrupt. Not a fun fight but I got it down and killed her the other day, she dropped the mirror, yay!! As soon as she died another player swooped down, I was there at the right time.
There are many that still evade me, champions that is, but I check often and hope to get more of these cool items. They add a lot of flavor to the game. My poor bags are bursting with items! Below is a list I took from this post on WoW Head, it offers a list of many illusion items. You can also find a complete list here.

Other than that, I finally finished up my farm with the Tillers. That was exciting. It took me long enough, lol. I'm happy to have everything opened up. Now I am working on other factions as I can, one thing at a time.
I finally had a chance to try the latest MMO out: Neverwinter. I play a lot of PWE games so I know that the cash shop will tie in a good bit but I think they are pretty decent on a lot of content. Levels and such are never gated which is nice.
I didn't have long to play but my impression of the game was decent. I think combat felt solid, the game looked good. The cinematic was pretty nifty. I like the idea of companions, the foundry sounds sweet. It is a pretty game too.
Things I didn't like? I thought the whole another 'action MMO game' felt.... Flimsy. It plays like it is ported from a console. I don't like that. I like traditional feel like EQ and WoW, where you have free mouse movement across the screen. If I wanted action type games, I'd play console games. But that seems to be the big thing now, though I don't see any of them making a huge splash. That is my honest opinion, just personal preference I suppose. The game 'options' seemed lacking as well (at a glance, will have to look more later), all I saw were two scroll bars for video. Meh. The character models were not all that impressive, they were not bad though. Kind of charming thus far, just not super modern.
All in all it really seems a decent game. I just don't care for action+MMORPG. But... I want to give this title more time, when I get more time. It does show some promise. I do like Cryptic and PWE, so I think the game could really shine. I've waited a long time for it to come out, glad it has finally arrived.
I've been missing Vanguard Saga of Heroes for awhile. I always miss that game. Like something in the wind blows my way and I hear Telon, whispering for me to come back. I really want to sit down and play it some soon. I always miss Vanguard.
I am patiently waiting Dragon's Prophet as well. I think that looks fantastic, I'm just wondering how 'action-y' it will be. I like a lot of ideas the game offers from what I've seen thus far.
Other than that, I just don't have the time for anything else at the moment. I need to take more time for this blog, because I still love writing and sharing about games. Every now and then I think about closing up shop but I'd miss it too much. My other blog suffers, but one of these days I'll get back to it. This is where my heart is, and hopefully where it will remain for many more years. Have a great week, peeps.
