A Month of Nothing.

I just looked at my last post and felt a little guilty. One whole month? What excuse could I possibly have for neglecting to put down here what I've been up to in the World of Warcraft and beyond?  I can think of several, but that would be whining, and noone wants to hear that. I know that people like to hear good news, so let me recap the good parts of this past month of nothing.

New look.
Delgada needed a clean set of robes. I decided to make a clean yet classy look, and put together the Robes of Arcana with the Windchanneler's Mantle, a Lifegiving Cloak, Gnoll Casting Gloves and a Gossamer Belt. I think it is not too fussy and maybe even easy enough to draw? I've commissioned a friend to make Del appear as a work of art, and I am waiting impatiently (but not the "is it done yet?!" kind of impatient!) for the results. Oh, the Ethereum Life Staff is just in there for shiny.

Raven Lord!
Garn Steelmaw

Delgada got a couple new mounts. She is still 27 mounts from the 200 achievement (darn all those Alliance and class specific mounts confusing the count!). Raven Lord dropped, finally, from one of those Outland Auchindoun instances, and Garn Steelmaw came from a Garrison World Boss. My friend Genya texted me to make sure I didn't miss out!

Del has been working on achievements lately, too! All of the most recent ones are to the left of this post (I'm so lazy). She is maintaining her third place in achievement points in the guild, not by a huge margin, but enough that so long as she gets one or two a week, she should stay there.

Last but certainly not the least, is this achievement I got yesterday.

Blizzcon Ticket!

I get to go this year! I tried Tuesday, only to get continually booted from the waiting room back to the start page. Saturday I turned off all the wifi in my house, set myself up with my one browser page on Eventbrite, and logged into Mumble just so I could vent my frustration to whoever was in there. Turns out I wasn't the only one trying for tickets, and we both got them! It will be fun to see any other Pwnies that go to Blizzcon, as well as any of you who are reading this. There are people out there still, right?

I guess this last month has been something and not nothing after all. Hope you are all finding some treasures in Azeroth, Draenor, or wherever your hang your pixilated hat.

Selfies In All The Other Places!

Delgada finished taking her Selfie tour of Azeroth and beyond last week sometime. I have been lazy (busy) and haven't posted the rest of them here. She is happily wearing her new shiny title and finding other things to occupy her time, which is just fine, because I am sick of these selfies! Here, take them, I'll be researching music roll locations.

Aaaauuuchindoun! (Talador, Draenor)
Looks better in one piece.
I can't believe they let me in here!
Temple of  Karabor, Shadowmoon Valley, Draenor.
Is there a demon behind me?
Throne of Kil'jaeden, Hellfire Peninsula
Inside one of the Eco-domes in Netherstorm, the best vacation spot in Outland.
The largest of the Eco-Domes, Stormspire.
The Aldor Army.
Shattrath City, Outland.
Nagrand is beautiful, regardless of the timeline!
Throne of the Elements, Nagrand, Outland.
More like Veil of Eternal Sorrow.
Veil of Eternal Blossoms, Pandaria.
Down on Delgada's farm there is a song bell plant.
Sunsong Ranch, Valley of the Four Winds.
Liu Lang was the greatest explorer ever.
Turtle Beach, Krasarang Wilds, Pandaria.
Dalaran, Crystalsong Forest, Northrend.
Oh, Kalec, I couldn't!
Wyrmerest Temple, Dragonblight, Northrend.
Ahh! Ghosts!
Naxxramas, Dragonblight, Northrend.
 Right about here I got tired of reminding Delgada that this wasn't all about her, because, really, it was all about her. From here to the end all she cared was that she went, saw, and selfied.

Wintergrasp Fortress, Wintergrasp, Northrend. (FOR THE HORDE!)

Daggercap Bay, Howling Fjord, Northrend.
More of Daggercap Bay.

Mount Neverest, Kun Lai Summit, Pandaria. (take 2)

Halls of Origination, Uldum, Kalimdor.

So, there you have it, all the self serving pictures Delgada could handle to get a silly title. I have Del's next collection under way, and there will be pictures (hopefully not as many selfies!)

Let Me Take ... Kalimdor Selfies!

Delgada continues her quest to take selfies in all the places, so that she can get a title and a measly 5 achievement points. I am disgusted by what she is doing. I do, however, admire her sticktoitiveness. Yes, that word is underlined in red, as is the word selfies. If the world can make a word up, I can borrow another made up word from where ever it came from.

C'mon, Warchief, do the kissy face, like this!
Orgrimmar, Valley of Strength.
The Isles are a great vacation spot, mon.
The Echo Isles, Durotar.
All I want is your first born, dear. This can stop anytime.
Onyxia's Lair, Dustwallow Marsh.
Visiting an old fishing buddy.
The Twin Colossals, Feralas.
How do you take a selfie with a tree this big?
The Nordrassil Inn, in the roots of Nordrassil, Mount Hyjal.
Defiling the moonwell.

One with my homies for the road!
