closing in on explorer title

alcaz island. it rose out of  the sea one xpac ago.

spiritcat cleared dustwallow marsh and feralas. had a long levitate trip to cross the waters to the alcaz island which is pretty cool. a WoW friend told me it didnt exist in classic and only popped up in BC for some quest chain stuff (he told me the details, it just didnt stay in my brain).

no wonder i didnt seem to recall dustwallow marsh having any significantly large islands in the past! (spiritcat used to pop over to theramore to learn fishing from the trainer who will give u a really dumb quest to do to earn your stripes)

onyxia ignored. again

nowadays, the only reason to pop into theramore is because of onyxia. but even then, raids on her seemed to have stopped – everyone is so ICC and RS. so it is pretty sad. they took all the fun out of the original onyxia, only to have her now stuck in the marshes and no one cares about killing her anymore here too. maybe they will resurrect her in the xpac after cat. haha. this dragon has more lives than a cat!

LFG roll of the dice

very very strange. there are 12 normal dungeons, excluding the one in TOC and 3 in ICC. but it seems i get a lot of ICC runs these days. every day i queue with spiritcat i will get at least 1 ICC run, if not more. so the dice is loaded based on gear.

but i am getting used to it. getting used to not having a speed run but actually having to work for my badges. i am oso used to being last in terms of total dmg in groups. even if my dps is always 2k+

but surprisingly, i prefer ICC (even HOR if the tank and heals are good) to TOC. TOC is easier, but i hate the 1st part which requires you to mount and charge. i just dont see the point these days. cos the opponents are like mush – i just cut thru them.

i see dumb ppl

i think rankwatch will always have business. it’s still sending msg to party members that they are not using the highest ranked spells.

and dumb ppl who still stand in fire/green(poison)/white(ice) stuff and slowly die or actually die.

during a GD run 2nd boss fight, a few ppl were just standing in the purple squares and their health is dropping. but lucky for them the healer was pro.

in an oculus run, ppl were standing still in ice and dropping health, after downing the 3rd boss. must be too busy looking at who is gonna win the dream shard roll.
