I spent my first Darkmoon Prize Tickets on a Darkmoon Cub and a Darkmoon Zeppelin, so I have 165 companions now. Of course I have the obligatory pet addon to show them off, but I'm afraid some of them might disappear a bit in the crowd like this. And how do I decide my Pet Battle Team?! It will be like choosing teams for elementary school cannonball all over again... ;)
After some hours of swearing about drops the last weeks, I got Vishanka, Jaws of the Earth this week. Really really happy about that. In tier 11 I suffered a bad ranged-weapon-draught, and even though I really want tier gear, ranged weapon is top prio. Hoping it will drop again for teammate Simelda, or that he gets the gun from trash, being a dwarf and all.
Raiding and mounts
I've decided to start equipping epic gems in 397+ gear. The first weeks I was laughing at the prices these shinies went for in AH, but now that we're starting heroic modes and I feel a bit unlucky with drops, this is also a way to gear up. I'm still a bit on the "that's way too much money for 10 agility", but I figure if I equip 10 of those gems, that's 100 extra agility. And I love me some agi. Anyway, gold isn't worth anything unspent. Or something like that.
We managed to get Morchok down in heroic mode this week. Playing it safe with 4 healers. As a raidleading hunter I must admit one of the worst parts about raidleading is to assign healing. I always feel like a meanie when I tell them they will have to 2-heal a fight cause we need more DPS. At least this time I could do the oposite. :)
Madness of Deathwing dropped Blazing Drake, and I won the roll! It's supposed to be really rare, but this was our 3rd kill and we've already seen it drop twice. It looks really nice. :)
We went back to Firelands to finish our Glory of the Firelands Raider-achievements, so I'm the proud owner of a Corrupted Fire Hawk. Eventually we'll probably go back and get that Ragnaros heroic kill too.
Bane of the Fallen King is me! Finally killed Lich King on heroic. :) Was working on that fight over a year ago, before we started the guild. Was good to see the raid again, although one year can do a lot about tactics that I used to know by heart. As you can see under, not thinking before pulling WOTLK-bosses can still cause a wipe. ;) I used Gift of Naaru 3 times on boss, and also bandaged her, but we met the enrage timer. Which gave A LOT of adds.

I'm telling you, this transmogrification is making me do the weirdest things. I keep finding single pieces of gear that I want to use, that don't fit eachother AT ALL (like Vengeful Gladiator's Longbow and Rushing Storm Kilt). I'm really bad at finding the rest of the outfits. On another note, I hope they eventually open up for transmogging leather, as a lot of us hunters feel our gear should be made of leather, so we can easily chase the woods. We're leatherworkers and wannabe-leatherusers. :)
So I found myself doing The Forge of Souls, Pit of Saron and Halls of Reflection on both normal and heroic, over and over and over, until I got the pieces I was after (see Ferilli under). To get matching shoulders I had to do a certain quest in Un'goro Crater. A sudden chill creeped under my skin. I finished Un'goro Crater quest-achievement a couple of months ago... Downloaded an addon called Loremaster so I could see which quests remained. YES! Still obtainable. Set complete. :)
I also did Razorfen Downs in hope of some uncommon gear pieces for one of the other gazillion sets, but after one run I decided this was not something I wanted to spend my time on. AH it is. Of the hunters I featured in Huntermogging 2, I had a couple of favorite looks that I would like to try for myself. I have several hunter alts I could spread the love amongst, so I now have regular searches on AH for anything Engraved, Steadfast, Glimmering, Der'Izu, Fel Iron Chain, Grunt's etc.

I've mentioned Naanei in an earlier post. She's a new character I'm leveling. Surprisingly a hunter this time, draenei hunter. She's only picking up quests given by draenei quest givers, going with no heirlooms and no guild. She dinged 40 yesterday. :) I'm considering giving her some posts on her own about this experience later.

Totally unrelated music video incoming, this is a song I find myself listening to a lot these days. Enjoy. :) Lae
