Vulk — Tue, 12/13/2011 - 02:23
So it has been awhile since I have been to the website, hell I had forgotten about it until 10 minuites before I began writing this. After what I can imagine has been 12 months since my las visit I have to say one thing: Garreth, the points on the site are broken.
I have lost touch with many of you guys since my school and professional life has taken over, in addition to transferring Vulk to another server so that I could play with some rl friends when time permits. Damn do I miss you guys, especially those that left before I left and now see back on. Whenever I think about an awesome time playing WoW, Downfall is involved 99% of the time, but that has all fallen into "the good old days" of WoW. One of the reasons that I am writing this because I am planning on transferring my druid, Cizin, over to the realm on which Vulk now resides: Firetree.
Now we reach the main reason why I am writing this blog post: You know, I've never had the pleasure of attending one of the annual meetup that downfall holds, and I have only had the pleasure of meeting a select few of you in person (Garreth, Aidin, Grasen) but I do want to change that by possibly creating a mini-meetup. I want to see how many of you guys would be interested before I make this an official event.
In my efforts to get in shape, I have taken up something that I have always wanted to get into, cycling. I have found that I want to do some touring on a bike so for the past few months I have been planning a trip to Yellowstone National Park and the Grand Tetons just south of there. Now, for me this would all be by bike from my abode in Colorado, roughly 1200 miles round trip and a little over 3 weeks in duration, but for you guys it could be as simple as driving there and only spending a couple days before returning home. In total I plan on spending a week camping out there and enjoying, well, everything. I'm sure I don't have to remind you guys on all the awesome stuff one can do out doors. Right now I am planning on reaching yellowstone by late May to mid June to give you guys a possible timeframe.
So who is interested? Hell, if anyone else is crazy enough we could meet up somewhere and ride there together.
I'm going to be trying to put a 5 man group together to go and get all the achievements needed for this meta
It rewards a very sexy http://www.wowhead.com/spell=88331/volcanic-stone-drake
We will be running the heroics probably on Sunday and maybe Thursday afternoons, before the rated BG's start up. I plan to run a few each night until we knock them all out. I really do not want to try and do it all in 1 night, or even 2 and maybe even 3. Heroics are boring enough, no one wants to do that many at one time. If you cannot make a night that we have planned to run on do not worry! We will not run unless all five of the players are in attendance, it's easier if we are all on the same page. Plus, I really do not want to do some of the achievements more then once.
I need 2 DPS (1 melee 1 ranged... or both ranged) a tank, and of course a healer. I have to enforce some type of gear requirement, from what I have heard there are some challenging achievements. Just don't be in all quest greens and all that.
If your interested leave a comment or PM/mail Nicklolz. Thanks!
I'm coming home guys! But since i can't tell you exactly when, I'll just say by the end of this month! Don't expect me on right away though. Also, my wife has been playing her cow shaman and totally digs it, and when i come back i may not be alliance anymore.. unless i can convince her to change sides. She'll never apply to a guild though. So we'll see.
Anyway I can't wait to be home, out of the army for good, and getting back to school. Good shit.
PS. Make it so I can post a forum topic without it telling me I have to join a group first. What the hell is that about anyway?
I am moving this weekend and havn't even begun to pack so I'll need to take some time in my evenings this week to get that accomplished. I may be able to hop on Wednesday depending on what we are hoping to accompish but I am nearly certain I will not be on Friday. I am hoping to get internet setup at the new place ASAP so hopefully I wont miss any more time than that.
I figure since so many people find such cool stuff like saedo verizon math fail and grasen obama caps executive pay thing we need one spot so we can post this stuff in beside shout box and making new forum topics every days. So have fun and post in shout box and here so incase you missed it in shout box it will stay in here making it easier to find.
Please try to not reply to much to link and pics so we can keep them all in here.
