On A Tentative Return

     Howdy, everyone!

     I realize it's been a while since I last posted.  *checks last post* Okay, so two months.  Eh.

     Anywho, life's been getting more stabilized over the past several weeks, and I'm thinking about playing again.  I can't reactivate my account just yet, since I have bills to pay first, but I'm hoping to be up and running again by New Years.  I've been talking with a few friends, two of whom used to play before, and we're all thinking that playing a little WoW is a good way to kill some time here and there, as well as have it be an activity that we can all do while we hang out.

     I'm not entirely sure if I'll be getting back to this blog with the same level of dedication I once did, but who knows?  If nothing else, it'll be a place to catalog whatever random crap I come up with as I play.

     I did dust off the starter account.  I noticed that since my last post where I was bitching about the prohibitive cost of Pet Battles and how the 80g price tag put it beyond the reach of Starter Accounts, they went and dropped the price to 10g.

     So I bought it.

     And I'm constantly flooded with the error message, "Failed to begin pet battle."

     GG Blizz.  GG.

     So, fine.  I'll wait until I reactivate.  I did try out the worgen starting zone for the first time ever.

     Nobody ever told me they get a TOP HAT.  Why did nobody *ever* tell me I could've had a fancy top hat?  I mean, I've already got a monocle and a diamond-tipped cane!  I could've had a TOP HAT to match!

     So, first order of business when I get a full account again is to create a new bank alt and get him a top hat, tuxedo, monocle, and diamond-tipped cane.

     Because what's fancier than a top hat and monocle?!


  1. Welcome back, tentatively.

    Pet battles will fit your need of something to waste some time on. They are fun in a passtime sort of way and you will not even notice that your entire play time is gone in a blink of an eye. I'll be the first to admit I like it a hell of a lot more than I would have expected I would.

    I don't think the diamond tip cane drops any more sadly.

    1. Well, it's a good thing I still have my diamond-tipped cane on my old bank alt, then!

  2. I've not checked this, but can you wear a top hat and a monacle at the same time as they're both head slot items?

    1. No, it would appear you cannot. Which is very sad.

      They should seriously consider allowing a stacking effect with non-stat increasing items. That way, someone could theoretically wear a top hat, monocle, and Red Defias Mask.

      Just because.
