The year 2019 has been both the hottest year on record for Oklahoma and the wettest year on record. Generally speaking by this point in the season it is starting to calm down on the temperature front and I have a mostly brown lawn. However this year everything is lush and verdant and trying to kill me. Over the last few weeks my allergies and asthma have hit a critical mass and combined with the still 95 degree days and I feel like I am dying most of the time. I have my good days and my bad days, and the last two days have been bad days.
I wasn’t entirely certain I would make it through the day yesterday but I somehow managed my way through it. Today however is a day for staying home in the AC and taking periodic breathing treatments and lots and lots of meds to try and kick this whole situation in the bum. Sure it is a fine day for dinking around in World of Warcraft, but I also feel supremely guilty for sticking my three supervisors with having to attend meetings that I would otherwise attend. Responsibility sucks but what is absolutely worse is the feeling of guilt when you know you are pushing your responsibilities off onto someone else.
Last night however was a mostly good night. We ultimately pulled together a Razorfen Kraul group when the FFXIV raid night didn’t make due to lack of healers. Grace is mostly busy this week so instead we grabbed Eliyon on his Shaman and worked our way through the instance. Living most of my Warcraft life Alliance side this is an instance I do not know terribly well. I mean I have run it a handful of times, but due to the extreme distance you have to travel to get there it just wasn’t something that happened regularly.
I largely wanted the instance to finish out my Warrior specific Brutal Armor quest chain, as one of the drops came off a boss early in the instance. Past that Eliyon really wanted the Corpsemaker axe to drop, especially given that I am not interested in it as a warrior since I mostly level sword and board. What I wanted instead was to get the Pronged Reaver one handed axe seeing as it more closely fits my personal play style. Fortunately for me it did in fact drop… and unfortunately for Eli his axe did not. I am sure I will be back in there at some point and will try and snag him again so he has another shot and another person who might roll on it that wouldn’t.
Now I am in the awkward position of skilling up Axe from scratch, as I had never really used a one handed axe prior to winning this weapon. I am taking the opportunity however to farm cooking components and catch that skill up in the process. As a warrior I seem to go through an excessive amount of food and while Vernie keeps dropping his creations off on me, I feel like I should probably be more self sufficient. Right now I also largely treat his creations as a limited quantity and use them fairly sparingly.
The negative of last night however is that I dinged 32 and with it… went literally all of my money. I am down to 10 silver at this point, so I am not exactly sure where that 100 gold for the mount is going to come from. Maybe I should have been playing the market this entire time, but I feel like I lack the financial fortitude to really do that in Warcraft. Instead I will probably find something to grind and vendor copious amounts of it to make my 100 gold. I wish “tank for hire” schemes were more viable because I would absolutely tank for cash.
