I can’t sew worth anything in real life, but I’ve been a tailoring like crazy on Katella in WoW.. lol. I started with a hood last night, and then proceeded to make myself a whole new outfit. I just started being able to work with silk…
To support this new habit, I’ve been taking my Shaman Karynna out for the purpose of gathering needed cloth. With Karynna, I’ve been a frequent at the Dawning Woods Catacomb’s – which really reminds me alot of Eldieme Necropolis in FFXI (only not as stressful) – and funny enough because of that I feel really comfortable there.. lol. Despite the fact that I really disliked going to Eldieme when playing FFXI.. lol!
I was out there last night when a guild member asked me if I wanted to do a dungeon run.. (started with an R.. and is in “The Barrens” area – sorry don’t have these place names down yet).
I ended up going, they summoned me there to the Barrens, and we ran in. I kinda felt a little bad though because I don’t exactly have a mount yet, so they were all running in on their mounts and I was in ghostwolf form to try and keep up. They ended up getting off of their mounts and we fought our way in.
I had never really “partied” or “grouped” with more than one person before, so I really didn’t know what exactly was expected of me. Karynna is an enhancing shaman, so mostly I just kept Mana Spring Totem (for the paladin that was always out of mana) , Magma Totem, and Windfury Totem up. Honestly they killed things so quickly that I hardly got a chance to do much. Just hit, and a few heals here and there, and a few chain lightnings… Is there a trick to targeting in this game? It was insane the amount of mobs that were on us at a time, this was definately not the careful planning that I’m used to with FFXI. In WoW they just run in and grab a whole group… I was last in dps.. 😦 Maybe that is normal? Is enhancing a Damage dealer? or more of a support role? LOL.. I have no clue. Anyhow I got a few items out of it, I was passing on things first, then they said to roll greed all the time, so I rolled a few times.. I still passed on some stuff when people said that they wanted or needed it. Most stuff I got was lower than what I was already wearing, so I sent it to some of my other characters.
Hope I did ok.. lol. No one said anything, but I kind of have the feeling from listening to conversations in my own guild, that possibly rather than point out things to party members in WoW, that people are more apt to just complain about them in their guild chat, so who knows… Maybe there are total strangers out there that now think I suck… ah well.. lol! I’m willing to learn though.
One thing is that there is so much chatter on some of the channels, I have a real hard time noticing when someone is talking to me.. I suppose I’ll get used to it, but I’m sure they all think I’m slow.. lol.
When getting supplies on Karynna for Katella (since she generally has more money) I also picked up a hat for Karynna.. lol. I like it although I’m glad for the option to not have to display it..
On the otherside of things… I was walking trying to locate NPC’s for a quest that Shivasnow & Ifritsfire has, and got this picture and liked it! Thought I’d share…
