I've Seen You Before...

I only need Dirkee and Terror Spinner for Frostbitten, so I've parked an alt at one and set my hearth to the other, and log out at a spawn point.

It is, however, rather disconcerting to see someone else parked close to you when you log out... and in the exact same position when you log back in the next day. Do these people not sleep or work?!

Anyway, I've been trying harder to get this Achievement done because I was reminded recently that come MoP, zones will be cross-realm... meaning more people in the zone and therefore less chance of you seeing rare mobs. Great for questers, not so great for Achievement hunters like me! :(

Here's hoping I manage to get the Time-Lost Proto-Drake and the Camel Hoarder as well... although if the dude I see when I log into Storm Peaks is still there for the rest of the week, I'm not holding my breath!

The Minions of Hell Grow Stronger

...and the minions of Azeroth grow lonelier.

My guild has jumped on the Diablo 3 bandwagon, plus we've had illnesses (it's getting into cold 'n flu season here in the Southern hemisphere, don't forget!) and people taking holidays, so it's been a little quiet in WoW lately.

That's not to say we haven't been progressing, though - we consistently kill 3 heroic bosses in DS and we're working on a 4th.

Not to mention, we're finally at the last few runs of Firelands for our guild leader to get the legendary staff - an epically long hard slog, if you ask us. Our rogue got his legendary daggers with much less group effort.

I was actually a little surprised that we all keep turning up to raid, considering. I guess Diablo 3 is more of a solo game or with a small group of friends, so WoW is still the only way we can all get together in a big group and have fun.

Well, that, or perhaps the core raiding team of 11 or so that we have left are the more motivated group - after all, Southern Wardens hasn't traditionally been a heroic raiding guild, but I think we can safely say we are now! :)
