Taming All the Pets

This week, after crossing a very cool Goblin Hunter who was running with Stinky at his side, I realized that I couldn’t tame all the pets in Azeroth. I don’t know how this happened, but I completely forgot about the existence of the taming tomes.

After running the macros below, I noticed that I was still missing Gargons, Cloud Serpents and Blood Beasts.

/run for k,v in pairs({['Blood Beasts']=54753,['Undead']=62255,['Cloud Serpents']=62254,['Gargon']=61160})do print(format('%s: %s', k, C_QuestLog.IsQuestFlaggedCompleted(v) and '\124cff00ff00Yes\124r' or '\124cffff0000No\124r')) end
/run for k,v in pairs({['Direhorns']=138430,['Mechanicals']=205154,['Feathermanes']=242155})do print(format('%s: %s', k, IsPlayerSpell(v) and '\124cff00ff00Yes\124r' or '\124cffff0000No\124r')) end

Here is the lists of all the tomes and where to find them (from Wowhead):

The first new pets that I tamed were Stinky and Precious from Icecrown Citadel. After taming these magnificent pets, I continued to the Lich King and he dropped a Drudge Ghoul, yay!

Zen as an Orc

Ever heard the expression “Zen as an Orc”? No? Me neither. It’s because such a thing doesn’t exist or didn’t exist… If you would have told me, a few years ago, that I would join the Night Fae with Gamrok, I wouldn’t have believed it. Yet, my time with the forest folks was entertaining and relaxing.

I don’t have much more to say about it, I only needed an excuse to post this amazing screenshot.

4 Hours 25 Minutes

Last Friday, we’ve been camping the Fallen Charger for 4 hours 25 minutes before giving up and finally going to sleep. Almost 5 hours of our lives, spent doing nothing else than watching our screens, waiting for an elite mob, not knowing if it would even spawn while we were online.

A few weeks ago, that thought would have frightened us but, in the end, we had an amazing time. We joined a wait group and chatted with people while popping our best toys and being our goofy selves.

The next day, after a lot of whining, we went back to WoW and stumbled upon a group that mentioned that the Charger was up. We both had the time to tag it and, by doing so, complete the meta achievement “Breaking the Chains”.

Not only did we receive the amazing mount, The Hand of Salarangor, but we’ve also learned that, no matter how long it takes for an rare to spawn, the feeling of finally killing it is awesome!

By the way, this hand mount is the second one we received in a few weeks. The other is the Hand of Nilganihmaht, which we could craft after looting 4 different Quartered Ancient Rings scattered across the Maw.

Only two more hands to collect and we’ll have them all!

We’ve Reached The End

It started 15 years ago, maybe more, I’m not certain, but I remember buying the first book… It was in Brussels and we were about to have some time off at home. As usual, we were stockpiling cool stuff for our holidays and we purchased the first tome of The Walking Dead. Yesterday evening, I’ve finally read the last page of the last book. Now, I feel sad at the idea that there won’t be another book to purchase for our next holidays. On the other hand, I’m very happy with the end and I’m glad that Robert Kirkman could bring it to the conclusion that he wanted.

I gave up on the TV Show a few years ago. It was not good, too slow and over dramatic, but the comic books are amazing from the first page to the last. I’ll probably read them again, one of these days…

Also, the 16 books fit in a single Kallax cube. Coincidence? I think not.

Change Of Scenery

This week, we did one of the saddest thing, we removed the Christmas decoration. The place feels empty and cold without our tree and we’ve already started to count down until next November. After all, what is a year if not an eleven month wait for December?

On the other hand, since the Lego Christmas village is gone, we finally could build the Millennium stand we bought from Wicked Brick and put the Falcon on display.

The spaceship is huge and heavy (7541 pieces) and the stand does a fantastic job at holding it safely. The detail is great and we also enjoy the character stand.

So, even if we’re still suffering of post-December blues, a spaceship is all it took to cheer us up. See, we’re simple people!
