Prime VS. Skorpyron Heroic

So, this is gonna be a really nerdy post.

This is my guild’s kill video of the first boss in Heroic Nighthold. We one-shot him, as you can see! We’re up 3/10 in Tier 19 on the first night of raiding. My dps was pretty good in this fight. It took a bit for me to figure out this fight having only seen it once in normal before we ran the encounter on heroic. (Also, I did not watch any of the videos, but don’t tell our raid leader!) After I figured it out, if you look at the meters during the fight, you’ll see that Batsheba’s dps was more consistent. The recent class tuning was also a wonderful boost to my Beast Mastery Hunter dps, increasing my Cobra Shot damage by 46% and Kill Command damage by 10%.

Btw, Prime on US-Lightbringer is currently recruiting dps for Mythic raiding. Contact me on Bnet at Bats#1598. Or visit our guild website. Thanks!

Claws of Ursoc

I’m still having trouble sleeping (most likely due to my illness(es), mental health and chronic shoulder pain). I have been feeling restless, can’t relax, and was up late last night playing a new toon in WoW. I’m in a Facebook group called Women of Warcraft. Some of the ladies from the group decided to start up a Horde guild for women only. So, I rolled a troll druid, because I always wanted a troll druid LOL. Here’s the screenshot of my troll druid bear artifact weapon, Claws of Ursoc. It basically just changes her shifted form into an even more shaggier, fiercer, (and colorful!) hulking bear. My troll has light blue skin and a fiery red-yellow mohawk.

Hello 2017!

And good riddance 2016!

I spent New Year’s Day setting up my new computer gaming system. I bought it online one-stop shopping at Fry’s, and it was delivered within an hour of my purchase. Faster than Amazon! This is an ASUS G11CD, with Intel i7, Nvidia GTX 1080, and 512 SSD drive. I also bought a Razer Black Widow mechanical keyboard, which is super neat and makes me type faster! I definitely don’t feel like I’m mashing keys in WoW anymore.

This New Year, more than ever, I am thankful for all the good things in my life, old friends and new, and my family who cares about me so much. Life is too short and I’m feeling blessed.

Volunteering

After the election, I decided to do something to make me feel better and more empowered. I felt that I had failed because the wrong person won the election and as a result a lot of people will suffer. I felt that I had to do more, to take action in my own way that will make America better. Hillary said not to give up the fight and get involved in the community, that America is good because we are stronger together.

So, I joined a women’s club that does volunteer work in the community. I heard about it from my friend, who is the president of the club and involved in many community organizations in town. So far, I’ve only attended two meetings and done one service event. It’s truly been a learning experience. I hope to become more involved and do a service event once a week. On Thursday I spent a couple hours wrapping gifts that are going to homeless families.

gnowithcharHere’s a selfie with my friend who has been encouraging me to go out more and get involved. She’s a wonderful, positive, super social, compassionate, self-reliant, and strong woman, and I’m grateful to have her in my life. A couple Saturdays ago, I was supposed to help out with a tree building made out of canned food for a FoodShare, but by the time I got there they had already built the tree (because I was late!). So my friend decided to take me along with her plans that day. She was on a mission to keep me out of the house for as long as she could. At the end of the night, she bought me a glass of wine at a bar in downtown. I have developed a liking for Cabernet. It was one of the best days in my life this year.

Fists of the Heavens

This is really cute:

That’s the Monk dps fist artifact weapon.

I have three level 110 toons now. I tried raiding on my elemental shaman, but my dps sucks so bad that I am switching my main back to my hunter. I am just not good playing a caster, and ele shaman is probably the worst caster spec in the game. So, now I have to level up my artifact weapon on my hunter and gear her up a bit more before Tuesday. My GM tells me not to worry though, since we are still farming Emerald Nightmare, I will get geared up soon. We are currently 6/7 Heroic, and are hoping to kill Xavius this week. My guildies are really helpful and laid back. They ran me through a couple mythic dungeons today, and I got 4 upgrades and lots of artifact power on my hunter. I want to get my artifact to 20 traits before Tuesday. It’s at 18 right now. It’ll be a grind but my artifact knowledge is 7, so I think I can do it. Plus, we got the timewalking dungeon bonus event this week, which will award me more AP. I only have one more to do, and hopefully I’ll get a decent reward from the quest.

Nnedi – 110 Draenei Elemental Shaman

After my shaman Nnedi dinged 110 the other day, I changed her race to Draenei because I am switching my main in this expac and will be raiding on my shaman instead of my hunter. I had rolled a dwarf because I wanted to play a different start zone, but playing a dwarf just didn’t feel like me, especially when I’m in dungeons. I’m so used to hearing that Draenei voice in my head and seeing her specific character animations. Plus, dwarves drink beer, while I’m more into vodka cocktails 🙂

My shaman Draenei looks almost exactly like my hunter they could be twins, except she has a slightly softer facial expression. My hunter on the other hand looks kinda angry, fierce, and defiant. IMO, Nnedi looks steady, strong, and ready. I wanted a change this expac, to feel excited again and have more fun, to explore this new character and develop her to be as powerful as I can. I’ve been playing hunter since 2006 (ten years!), and I’m ready for a new challenge.
