Monday August 23rd:
[size=30]70[/size]

We are running Karazhan next week. Anyone is welcome to join. We would prefer on level, or close to level, characters.

Thanks a ton for joining us Cayle. It was great to have you along.

Had some great laughs last night!

I think I have a rogue at level 71 or 72. If you need a dps, I can come.

It seems we've found ourselves in the bittersweet position where we've caught up to the current content and blasting through levels is a thing of the past. It has been a great run, and I really appreciate the dedication from the regulars and all the help from the stand-ins over the weeks.

For next week let's pick up as many group quests as we can and work towards 75 so we can run the Amphitheater of Anguish questline together sometime in coming weeks.

Thanks for letting me take a stroll down memory lane with you all. Running my rogue which I haven't touched since SCC was a blast. I think I might have even done some decent dps (wish I had omen running on that toon). If you need a body for Black Morass, I'm game.

I still think we should try to get down to Black Morass next week before we level too far, even if we have to 3 or 4 man it. Too good to miss, you know? Also, we might try Magister's Terrace, although we'll definitely need a full 5 for that (but LFD might be able to help there).

Other than that, though, I think your plan is the way to go, outside of hitting a daily random whenever the opportunity presents itself.

I'm all for running BM (HA! If you had the recalled eggs me and my family had you'd get the joke here.) A few of us should get together another evening before next Monday to get the others "attuned" for it. We could likely 3-man it, but there are 4.5 of us now.

Not a bad idea, but I think Cayle is the only one who needs the quest. Trust me, Grinders has done it at least once or twice.

If I am home or in a hotel with decent internet, I would be up or it. I might be travelling next week, so that can put a kabosh on it. I just need to figure out how to bring my dps up, you guys were smoking me.

Think I do.... so where do I go and what do I do to get these quest/quests?

I am off my "summer hours" and back to being busy at work, so a lot less free time to level. I may be slower, I will try and keep up with everyone though.

If you're on after 8 realm time any time between now and Sunday evening, and have some time, I can run through CoT: Durnholde with you to get attuned. We'll likely need to get some help from a few guildies. I should be able to tank or heal it no problem though.

I'll be on for an hour or so tonight just in case.

As always, holler if you need a hand.

Thanks will be on tonight if anyone has time... also Friday night. ~Cayle~

I could try to hop on tonight, possibly. Do not wait on me, but if I can I will pop on.

I'm re-upped over the weekend. I don't know if I'll be of any use to anyone because I can't remember what all those buttons do!

Just call me "Bounce".

I am a big phail!

I am starting to get sick (it started yesterday) and as of now are not feeling well. Work is not really helping today. I will see how I feel after I get home at 6, but it is possible I may skip tonight :*(. Jake also has his first night of bowling league tonight and its pizza/open bowl night he wants me to go with him. So needless to say, today is not the day to feel crappy. I will try to pop on and let you know either way.

Bummer!

Well, things are looking potentially busy for me tonight too. I still think it would be great to get Lewis in to see Black Morass and Magister's Terrace, but I'm not sure I'll have time for much more than a random Wrath dungeon or two tonight.

In any case, I suppose we'll just have to play it by ear and see what's what this afternoon.

So Magisters' Terrace for next week. It is Labor Day on 9/6.

Sorry about last night Cayle. You should have bugged one of us for the attunement. No attunement required for next week though.

With guild raiding beginning in the coming weeks I can't say I'd be heartbroke if we ramped things up a bit. Everyone think they can get to level 75 for Amphitheater of Anguish by 9/13? Here is the quest that begins the chain.
It is ~196k XP and ~120G plus a decent weapon at the end.

No Problem, will be interested in doing Magisters' Terrace though

That should be doable, I think. However, September is starting to look a bit busy, so I won't be upset if I end up falling behind if you guys feel like making the final push to get your toons into raiding.

I wasn't thinking and sold my iPhone today, which had my Mobile Authenticator app. I emailed support, and sent my photo ID in the email to try to expedite the process. The odds are not in my favor to have my Authenticator removed by Monday evening (I've heard of it taking weeks sometimes), but cross your fingers with me.

Nah just call them and explain what happened.
I did the same thing except my iphone died. The girl i spoke to was real cool after chatting her up and she just hooked me up and removed it for me.

Now getting through on the phone involved hitting redial about 40 times, and then 45 minutes on hold.

But over all it was painless.

I set my alarm to remind myself to start calling them right away in the morning. I thought I'd check on it one last time before I went to bed, and the authenticator has been removed! Woot! That was really fast.

Sooo, apparently today is Labor Day, and apparently people like to stand around outside burning food over fire on Labor Day. As such, (since I'm on the west coast) our usual start time has a good chance of overlapping with a social activity this afternoon. I'll do my best to show up anyway, but I'm afraid I can't make any promises.

lol did this past week become reup week?

Magisters' Terrace was a GWJ pain-train. We wiped the floor with everything inside. However, I can see how back in the day that place would've been tough as nails. There are quite a few unique fights in there.

Next week:
9/13
Level 75 for Amphitheater of Anguish questline. Make sure to do the Ring of Blood questline so you can get the achievement.

Level 75 may be a bit of a stretch for some of us. If it takes us another week for everyone to get to 75, no biggie.

I'd like to turn Monday nights into a sort of achievement farming night for anyone interested. I'm especially eying the ones that'll be either gone or rendered obsolete once Cataclysm releases. Some of the 5-man heroic cheevos require you to actually try to get, and most PUGs aren't going to just stumble on them:
Less-rabi We have the perfect group make-up for this one
Better Off Dred
etc
And whatever other achievements people have on their list. Also farm some mounts or other unique items people may be interested in.

Does this tickle anyone's fancy?

I'm game for anything at this point, really. Since I'm currently like one half of one percent of the way to 72, I should be able to hit 73, maybe 74 for next Monday, but I'm not sure 75 is going to happen. We'll see though, and if it comes down to it I can just heal you guys while you do the quest.

(And again, sorry for missing out yesterday -- glad to hear MrT went well though.)

Another good excuse for everyone to hit 75 sooner than later is that Operation Gnomeregan is up, as of today, and to participate in the battle you must be level 75.

Yeah, just saw that. Well, we shall see.

I'm down for any of the 5 man heroic cheevos; I can bring protadin awesomeness or shammy healiness.
