LK progress & a sneak preview

First of all, some bloggy stuff. I added an RSS feed on the right, or at least I think I did. I don't use any feedreaders or anything so if anyone does, can you let me know if it actually works? (I have no idea how they work.)

Secondly, last week we put in 16 attempts at the Lich King, and while the repair bill was probably scary (I didn't look) it's really refreshing to be in a fight like this where each attempt is a true learning experience. We've reached the Defile/Valks typical level of difficulty where it seems EVERY guild stalls a bit, and while we haven't really mastered it yet, we're definitely getting better. Unfortunately, I have yet to pull off the Parachute Cloak/Disengage combo to save myself from a Valk plummet, in 0 of 3 attempts. I don't think we'll get him down this week, but I would be comfortable with reaching phase 3 to see what the Vile Spirits are like.

Lastly, Vidyala's Paladin Fashion contest ends today! So go find your favorite paladin in game, make one of your own, or cobble something together on WoW Model Viewer and send it to her! Here is a sneak preview of my submission:


Yeah...it's Alliance. >< I can't help it, there's just so much more paladin lore/personalities that are on the dirty Alliance side! And the blue/gold motif has always been one of my favorite looks. Oh noes, I've been corrupted over to the Boring side! /wail

    Weird, Rades, I've had you in my feed reader forever... :P Glad you got with the times though.

    And yuck, blue and gold SNOREADIN fashion?! I made something Blood Knight themed... and accidentally copied an NPC nearly exactly. For the HORDE! :D

    Yep, I have you in my feedreader as well. You don't use a feedreader? :O How do you keep track of the blogs you read?!

    I just read the blogs! That's why my sidebar of links is so extensive. I need to be able to see the latest ones!

    Great work on your Lich King progress! The fact that you're solidly into that phase now is really great! Once you can work out the kinks in your Defile/Valkyr dance, I'm sure you'll have a kill in short order! (There's still some individual challenge in the Frostmourne room, which is scary, but I'm sure you're equal to it! :)
