Hello everyone and welcome back, as promissed to you I did play Might and Magic 9 sunday and I did fraps it and as you can see now DID make a total video blog about it! Try not to die from shock lol I've been promissing this for a while and so here it is. These three parts are all MM9 and nothing else, so no WoW here guys but dont worry WoW will be coming back and of course more MM9 down the stretch. For thoese keeping track of WoW I did do some leatherworking yesterday mostly as well as been working on a new toon, a dranei shaman! Shes level 12 now, and you will be seeing in a special WoW blog videos her total progression from level 10 to 20! So stick around for that.
For thoese of you wondering when I will get back to really leveling my main from 66 to 67 and so forth. I promiss it will be soon, i'm getting close to being able to goto northrend, of course 68 is the big suggestion/limt for that really to be able to handle the badies out there and I want to get out there soon. So i'll probley be playing my wow main tommrow on christmas eve or even tonight would be my main guess, we will have to see but hopefully have a post up for her from 66 to 67 asap. As for MM9 I did play quite on sunday and I hope to play even more and post more so please feedback on all this, i'd like to hear it.
And of course as you all see/know i'm playing a bit of armada II i dont know if i'll be bloging much on that mainly cause it seems like fraps and the un-offical patch dont get along well I dont know i'll ahve to look into it, but I guess we will see. So thats pretty much everything i've been upto latetly in the world of gaming. I of course hope to have some more WoW goodness up for you all tommroow, and of course hopefully no latter then friday or saturday have that shaman level 10 to 20 special video blog up for everyone to check out. So please stayed tunned I know its the holidays/christmas so I hope your enjoying it! I'll try to post as much as I can for you all, so here leaving you with a nice screenshot of me leather hunting/gathering last night and my circle of dead apes! Lol so untill next time, subscribe rate, and post your comments!

Hello again everyone I hope everyone is having a good decemeber so far. As you might imagne blog posts have been a bit lacking as of late with holidays and all creeping closer, but hopefully thats something i'll be able to correct. So as promissed I have my level 66 video blog up for you all, also with some winter veil goodness! Winter's Veil is the in-game world event for the holiday/chirstmas season. It started about mid december and will end on january 2nd. World events are cute little in-game events with specific quests and the like blizzard does, witch is quite nice and entertaining as well!!!
So yes only 2 parts to show you but thats because I was already over 50% to level from my little ramps/furnace that you saw clips of in the last blog/vblog post. So if your looking forward to seeing what I did next in outland or/and some winter veils quests/achivements definlty have a look! Some other things did happen that I didnt capture including my grand mastary of skinner! You can of course become a grand master in any profession when at a high enough level of that skill, but you also MUST be level 65 at least then you go just goto northrend and the starting towns there have the traniers so it was very easy and nice.
So thats pretty much it for now, hopefully i'll have some more mm9 vblogs for you as I have been playing that and my party is now level 32, so dont want to miss that i'll try to have that up tommorow if possible. Everyone have a safe and great holiday week i'll post as many blogs as I can of course and to leave you all with a beatuy shot of a christmas tree in WoW! See you latter!

Hello everyone, first my aplogies for the lack of updates/posts RL got in the way, i'll spare you the details but to keep it to the point I was too stressed out to make any blog posts. But now it should all be reseloved and so i'm back with a quick post to refresh you all and give you at least a glimpse of what I did. it would be more complete but I couldnt record it all unfournlty. And with me getting back into wow again for the push to 66, i have to free up space.
I spent most all this time playing Might and Magic 9 and also revisitng/playing some Star Trek Armada 2. I have gotten pretty far in MM9 and unfournlty I didnt capture all of it for you but I have some clips in the video blog entry for everyone, didint capture any star trek armada 2, I do do a little wowing and I do have that in the video blog as well. But definlty more gameplay tommrow and return to a more normal blog schedule so I hope to see you all then and my aplogies. See you all tommorow!
Wednesday, December 10, 2008

As I planned and promissed I did spend most all of yesterday playing WoW even thou I was fighting with getting Part 1 and 3 of yesterdays vblogs up for you all, witch i manged to do so if you missed thoese dont miss it, its all up now. I have moved on in outland to Zangromarsh and I did mange to make it to level 65 before the night was up. Of course you can see the full details of all that in the videos here.

Tuesday, December 9, 2008
Greets to everyone, first my aplogies for the lack of updates over the weekend. For thoese following my video blogs as you might of heard on them I was catching a minor cold witch unfournlty got a hold of my sinius and pretty much put me out of commision till late sunday night early monday. As much as I tried to play and do anything, WoW related or otherwise I just didnt mange to get it done. So my aplogies for that. I feel much better now and I did get some playing done as part of my last leg of recovery I played some Might & Magic 9(IX) an old school first person fantasy-party RPG. Thanks to some encourgment from RPGenie's videos on you tube of his gameplay and the finding of a 3rd party un-offical patch mod that helps the game run a bit better I acutally played it a lot yesterday.
The first two parts of the videos here do cover that, so if your curious take a look check it out, i' relaly like to hear your feedback as this is pretty much the first real game i've covered in my blog that isnt specifcly WoW related as I been promissing to do so I really want to hear you opinons on it. I did manage to play some WoW last night before I did head to bed, finshing some quests with my lovely fiance who at the time was level 69 and i'm proud and happy to say did reach level 70 before the night was out, I wasnt awake for it thou hehe. Plans for today are to play more WoW see if I can do a bit of ctaching up, i'm only a real day behind on my main, so i'm definlty going for at least level 65.
Again i'd really like to hear you opinon about seeing another game here on my video blog and blog in genreal. I'm going to try and add a little area probley on the right here for a current list of games i'm playing in genreal. Please take the time to subscribe to my blog or to my video blog. Comment and rate as well please and again if you want more full gameplay video at normal speed i'd highly suggest you check out RPGenie's page for all that. I'm leavling you all here with a nice beauty shot of Ironforge. Untill tommorow.
Saturday, December 6, 2008
Greets everyone, a little latter then I would of hoped but thats alright we will adjust. Back here once again for Level 64! Yes I made it yesterday as I was hoping, probley would of been there faster but I did take a bit of a break but I got there non the less. As you can see and hear in my videos I had a pretty easy time even thou some quests did give me issues. I dont belive i'll be playing my main today. So we will have to see of course. First I want to thank thoese who are rating and subscribing to my videos, please make sure you vote on the poll to the right!
So what exactly is on the docket today, i'm not sure i'm having a real late start for various RL reasons, but its a good possiblity alts may be done and some professions stuff be addressed. As for thoese of you wondering when I may play something else or do something else, tommroow is a real possiblity of that. We have no major raid this week, since I figured everyone needed a break and with our guildmaster out for a while still I figured it was best to go ahead and wait.
So thats really all for the post at this moment, of course i'll cover more tommorow it could be a brief post depending on what I decide to do. Those keeping track of my mains progression I should pick that right back up on monday so defintly dont want to miss that. Leaving you all with an outland shot of the dark portal, so enjoy, rember to vote and comment and please subscribe!
Friday, December 5, 2008
So hello everyone, I do have an early post for you all to finish all that didnt quite get covered yesterday. As well as of course more video contining right where we left off, moving from level 62 to 63 as well as doing my first outland instances witch i'm happy to say was very very nice. So this was again all done yesterday as well, so this blog post is kind of a countiation/catch-up from yesterday. Again this is using the same format I used yesterday as I think it works well, again i'd like everyones feedback on these videos and of course comments ranking and subscribing never hurt ethier ;P
This will not be the only post, I will have one ethier late tommrow or early tommrow, depending how tired I am to try and cover what happend today. So I hope you stay tunned for that. As that will be happing I have no beauty shot for you all yet, so please look over these videos and enjoy them. Also I belive I will be doing some oblivion modding and the like this weekend i'll try to have at least some screenshots and video if I can of that if that does happen. So all for now, more latter.
Greets everyone, back again first with new videos to show my progression. This time i've done the format a bit diffrently to try and first make it shorter and also easier to follow/watch. So i've speed up and cut through gameplay going through it and manged to break it into 3 parts for my final progression from level 61-62 as we left off. I of course did much more but the video will be a bit behind for a while till I can catch up. I also reached level 63 latter today as well as did helfire ciditals ramps and furance, so expect video of all that tommorow.
I'm also putting up a poll that will last a while to get everyones feedback of using the video as a new branch for my blog. Its not replacing it by any means and at the very least well allow me to focus/post mutliples of games or mods or anything i'm working on. I'll try to keep up with the video blogs as much as I possibly can. So again let me hear what you have to say and of course please post your comments.
Leaving you all with a beatuy shot today of me approching the menacing dark portal in blasted lands, make sure you come back tommrow, possible double post??!!!! See you soon.
Wednesday, December 3, 2008
So yes i've kicked up oblivion once again, thou it dosnt preform at its best with this onboard video its decent enough for modding, so i'm hoping to have more of that for you all to see maybe even some video, speaking of, I took some video of me questing early this afternoon, i've set it up to be in 8 parts on you tube and of course you can see it all right here so take a look give me your feedback and comments and such, tommroow i'll have a new post and vid as well that will be a diffrent format/take and i'll see witch everyone likes better from there.
Besides that not to much to report, getting back to WoW and working on my main again for the new few days is to be expected I have a lot of catching up to do. So heres a nice little beatiy shot of the outland sky for you all. Make sure you check out the vids for more and check back tommrow! Lates.

Ever since BG's (battlegrounds) came out i've been dying to try out playing alterc valley. And I finnaly did of course but I did it on my deathknight and OMG! What a ball I had, not only did we have fun (thou we lost all 3 times...well the first we crashed it lol and I mean we as in the other players in the BG) but I was doing very well and getting achviments left and right I got most of thoese screen caps you can see here. I did have to turn down some settings for the BG, as that many players nad spells and everything was just hurting my fps(frames per second) way too much, witch is no huge deal. I ended up spending most of the rest of the afternoon early eveing just playing in BGs till I had enough and it was close to raid time anyway.
Raid time of course came, and I was raid leader once more of course. So we started off doing LBRS(lower blackrock spire) again first to allow some others with us to get there quests and achivments and of course for the loot. That went very well and easy, our gulild leader didnt even die from falling! LOL!!! But seriously it was a ton of fun just the first half, we did very well. After the first half we moved to the second, after figuring out how to finsh the key and open the door, we then took a good break, our DK member had to go, but we gained quite a few more memebrs who came on late. Also my lovley fiance decided to switch to her hunter shes been working on so much these past few days. Shes been doing awsome and i'm so very proud of her.
Once we were all ready we moved in, and damn what a ball we had! New to us all, but never the less a blast! We had a few deaths here and there but nothing major, and tranquility saved us at least twice! LOL!!! But wow what a blast to go through I was so very very impressed by how well everyone worked togetehr and pulling, we of course had a ton of hunters but it worked out so well DPS(damage per second) wise! Even our lower leves didnt have to many problems, all in all everyone had a blast of a time thou we were exhausted when it was all over, and most importantly a lot of people got a lot of good stuff out of it. Guild wide, and people wide, weather it was quests, items, leather etc. it was a very very succesfull raid and they made my job look easy as a healer and a raid leader and I want to give my WOOT WOOT out to every single one of them, great job!
So thats pretty much it for the day a very eventfull and long day but well worth it, i'm soooo ready to crash and start fresh tommrow. Plans are to go ahead and start levling my main again, as I need to keep up on it and because well I do want too lol. Of course my other alts are still up to be worked on as well, the first probley being my death knight, who needs her alchmey worked on and some level ups, shes got hella rested xp to use. But any case we will see you tomorrow, and again my aplogies for now beauty shot, but theres plenty of good pics for you all enjoy till tomorrow.
Saturday, November 29, 2008

So now my main signature up to date and down there for you all to see! If you would all like as well I could post the rest of my alts too. So scroll down after your done reading this and check em out! I know this is a short post and I aplogize I dont even have a great beatuy shot for you all :( but no fret there will be more tommorw after all its the BRS(Black Rock Spire) run here tonight! So make sure you come back for that, and dont forget to vote on my poll! Theres not a whole lot of time left to do so!
See everyone tommorow and I hope everyone has had a good and safe thanksgiving!
Thursday, November 27, 2008
Besides that i've been playing my alt, as you all saw before some of my alliance mage but I took a break from that and worked on my hunter she got an exploration achivement as the screenie shows and happy to say shes at a level to tame a rare pet that i'm after. Unfournlty I havnt found him yet and rare spawns are just that rare so I dont know when i'll get the oppurunity or will to find and tame him. Hopefully I will early friday. Of course also friday is an SM(Scarlet Monstary) run with my DK and some others, i'm hoping to continue to refine my tanking skills here. Also of course saturday night is the big raid once more! So you definlty have a lot to look forward too.
My applogies for this being so short but as RL thanksgiving is here for us in the states it does happen. So thou no blog post tommorow you can find me the day after so I hope to see you then after your turkey coma! Have a happy and safe holiday and heres a beatuty shot of my main riding in Desolace (after fishing ;P) Till friday!
Tuesday, November 25, 2008
I ended the day by travling with our guild leader to dalaran via portal, to look at one of the new vanity pets there. I couldnt afford it (well i could but i would of been nearly broke again) but i did make my new hearth there, I also ran into my brother who showed me a neat shop for vainty pets including a leash. I have a cute pick of me in tree form holding my little baby blizzard bear (the WoW 4th aniverserary award) with the leash! I must say dalaran is quite cool, theres a lot to see and the lag was pretty decent...thou being so late I cant be sure that will always be the case.
There is some RL stuff to do tommrow and of course thanksgiving is coming up! So my blog posts may be short but you can bet theres much more WoW to be had as I continue leveling up! With another BRS raid on saturday and a SM(Scarlet Monstary) run on firday you can bet i'll keep myself pretty busy as the new raid leader! And of course i'll bring it all to you right here! In the mean time as I menioned before I updated my addon links and i also added a new poll! So please let me hear your opinon! You dont even have to regiester with blogspot to vote, but if you are registered please leave your comments!!
All for now, heres a nice screenshot of me in the outlands with some serious trouble lurking in the background! See you tommorrow!!!!

I also got some wonderfull news while I was fishing, yes I went back to fishing, i've kind of neglected the skill and doing so i've started to recive my fishing talents, you can see me achiveing my 100 fish collected achivement! My guild has been so impressed and thankfull to my lovley fiance and I that we have been made full fleged offciers! Witch is great were so happy to do so and help out and do the best we can, also I recived the disctintion of raid leader for the guild, witch is quite the responsiablity and achviement for me. I've been looking forward to raiding for quite a while, its the reason why I waited as long as I did for a guild, and have the oppurtunity to be a real push for it and work on it for the guild as a whole is quite an honor and I hope not to disapoint!
I got my first test as raid leader for our guild into BRS(Blackrock Spire) today, of course if you remeber last week the last time we entered BRS it was slow going quite disorignaed and a completle wipe, i'm happy to say a lot of or pataince and practice and getting used to a system that all of us have started to embrace and put in place is paying off in spades. Not only did we not wipe, we had only one major real death during battle, and a couple of acidental ones and we also totaly finshed Lower BRS!!!! As you can see in the screenies, I cant say how proud I am of everyone and Reg, I have to say has come very far from that first raid and it was great to have him easy to talk to on vent this time, I totaly look foward to raiding again and everyone had such a blast!
I can't say enough how greatfull and wonderfull it is to have found a guild such as Royal Pain. It really is a wonderfull guild. Were very considerate and helpfull of each other despite the way it should be, we all have fun and enjoy the time we play with each other no matter how long it is, all day, some of the day or even just a few hours. We all do the best we can and try to enjoy our selves, and I have to say our officers and leaders are definlty totaly awsome, accessible and very very helpfull, anything they can do they will and its wonderfull esppicaly on a first go to find the exact guild I was hoping and looking for, and more over even to be able to be apart of helping build it up into a raiding guild, witch is going to be such a wonderfull time and blast if anything now is an indication I'm starting to understand so much now as anyone who is in a guild such as this can attess too the real success of WoW at least at this level is definlty good guilds, riading or otherwise.
And on top of all that after such a wonderfull full WoW filled day, it ended with the start of the 4 year aniversery of World Of Warcraft!! Witch was wonderfull, I cerinlty look foward to more raiding fun and goodness and helping build the guild with the great responsiablity i've been givin. On a blog note, i've updated the wow addon list to the right (finnaly) that can be found, and of course i've updated my WoW signature as well so be sure to check that out. I leave you all with a nice shot of my main(Zandris) riding through the outland skyline! See you all tommorrow!!!
Friday, November 21, 2008
We had a lot of fun and made great progress, we also of course got our achivement for fufilling it. As you can see, my lovley beatifull fiance and I went through on our death knights as the main tanks. And we had a blast! After some leveling i've decided to hang it up more ealier for me then ussal to try and get back up at a diffrent hour. There will be more tommrow of course with the march to 60 heads on! My beatifull faince made it to 61 today, she also did get her epic mount witch is awsome! So stayed tunned and definlty dont want to miss saturday for the main event once again!!!
To leave you all with I have a nice beauty shot of one of the main hives in Silthus. Till tommrow you know da drill!!
Thursday, November 20, 2008
So as you can see I moved her off the winterspring and shes been questing dilgently there, on top of that its a wonderfull spot for skining leather she needs for leatherworking so that she work out wonderfull. Yesterday I got her up to level 57 and today upto 58 so i'm very pleased with her progression so far. I have to say i'm also very very happy with the progression of the guild and were i'm at with it. This guild is the real deal, we help each other out, we work well together really without having to ask we just offer. And obviously things arn't always perfect and not everything works the way you expect. But we do our best and we have a blast and a lot of fun doing it!
Tommrow night we have a pratice raid run through Zul'Farrak and i'm taking my DK with me, it should be a lot of fun and you can expect info and some screens right here. Speaking of my DK, I did run some guild mates through uldaman, and my tanking skills have gotten much much much better since our run through SM before my changes. I have to say its a lot of fun, and you can see I even made a nice little circle LOL, we got the achivement for finshing it but the primary pourpose was to find a drop for Jand, witch unforunlty did not drop (thou its a high level drop!) so it will have to wait to try and find another time. I have also added two of my alts to the guild, my warlock Martan, mainly for his jewelcrafting/mining abillites so you can expect more screenies of him as well as my lowly alt Shanir who is my herbalism/inscription as well to level them up and get there skills up much much higher for the guild as more nad more of us approch the level to goto to outland.
Speaking of, my lovely beatifull fiance made me very proud by reaching level 60 today and going to outland! I'm so very very proud of her, and shes having a wonderfull time. She has come such a very long way since she first asked to check out the game when she watched me palying after a time. I got her a trial and then upgraded her account and shes been hooked since. I litterly had my main stop leveling to help her and show her the way of the game, and she has just took out and fly with her alts and now esppicaly with her mains. I love her so very much and shes made me very proud!
Thats all there is for today for the past few days of course i'll have more tommrow hopefully reaching level 59 on my main as well as screenies from zul'farrak with my DK, so come back tommrow for it, i'll leave you all with a nice flying shot through Dun Mugore.
Tuesday, November 18, 2008
Also my DK hit another achivement as you can see, master first aid witch is very very sweeeet! With my death knight doing so well not only in the leveling department but also the aution house department I may work some of my alchemy tommroow after the maitance we will have to see, I want to work on my main and level her up as shes lagged a bit behind. I'm happy to say my lovley fiance has hit 57!!! And i'm so proud of how shes doing, she also got her death knight to level 60 and if you can tell or not she rode into the dark portal with me into outland! Tommorow has a lot of RL stuff on the plate, but also some non-WoW related stuff (I know heart attack!) i'm going to look into doing some wacraft 3 modding during the downtime. All this lore and content makes me hungrey to do some war 3 stuff just cause I know how to mod it well!
As for my WoW addons there on hold for the moment, i'm still looking forward to getting back to them just for now there put on a back burner till I can focus more on everything, hopefully this weekend or friday I can get back to work seriously on MatTrack! We will have to see. Sides that the biggest thing on the agend charchter wise is leveling my main, at least 1 level maybe more if I can. I doubt i'll run all the way to 60 but i'd like to get her as close if not there asap as possible just to keep up with incoming guild raids/instances that we will be doing more of. Besides that its more deathknight or an alt really to play and i'm definlty have a lot of fun with WoW. Got my beatifull fiance to play with as I have for quite a while, and now good wonderfull WoW freinds to play with as well, and I feel like i'm finnaly geting to the point I should of been years and years ago!
So untill tommrow i'll leave you all with this wonderfull gryphon ride shot of the outland skyline! Rember bookmark, make your favroties, link it, comment it, whatever! And let me know your out there!!!!
