Damn, baby…

August 10, 2014: Mataoka is speechless. 

kellda pony

Hawtpocket whispered me to get on my best DPS, which is Kellda, the Capricious. She grabbed her elite and amazing friends, made a ten man in under ten minutes, killed Garrosh in one quick shot, and not only did Miss Thang get her sparkly wolf pony, but an heirloom staff, and on bonus roll a piece of tier.

Remind me of this moment when I don’t win the Fishing Tourney for the 349th time, and the guild bank is out of toilet paper.

Cause this…is pretty effing awesome.

SURVIVED! End of The World Mogging Contest End

Thanks to those who took time to put together these incredibly well thought-out survival kits mogs: I swear Kam put together one too but I’ll be darned if I can find the e-mail. As far as winners go, you’re all winners, but prizes have to wait for payday. Just the way it is. If I can survive till payday, so can you. So wait if I’m recycling day-old coffee and looking in the couch cushions for spare change? As long as I can keep the Internet bill paid I’m good to go.

Anway, Jeni from Escapist Scrawl was the first one to send me something, so first up she is!

My note: the use of moist towlette is especially endearing!~

Helm of Lupine Cunning, because if she crouches she looks like a ferocious beast, and because she skinned the wolf herself.

Stonecloth everything except cloak, because stone and cloth must make a more resilient fiber. Del doesn’t have the strength to wear anything heavier.
Antiseptic Soaked Dressing underneath, just in case (do the undead need antiseptic?)
Ranger Cloak is her tent, blends in with the grass so she can hide and sleep during the day.
Hardened Stone Shard because knives are needed, and stone was plentiful.
Khadgar’s Knapsack. I suppose he is dead by now, powerful as he may be, and doesn’t need it. I stashed stuff inside! Murky Water, Moist Towelette, Rock Hard Biscuit, EZ-Thro Dynamite, Reinforced Fishing Line and Tough Jerky.
She kept a couple trinkets. Evonice’s Landing Pilla to lay on under her tent, and Dog Whistle to call a hound to help out.
I sent a bonus screenie because, name and title that snuck into the screen were hilarious!









Tome of the Ancient: I lifted this directly from Tome’s blog -damn baby–that helm alone would scare off would-be attackers!

saschesoutfitSo I asked my characters who would be interested in competing inMatty’s End of the World Contest. Cat’s found a renewed interest in getting her pets leveled before Warlords so she’s out. Cim showed interest but Sasche yelled, pick me, pick me! I’ve already done it before!

Done what Sas? Survived the end of the world … as I knew it anyway. Who better than an Undead to fight a possible Zombie Apocalypse!

Wow, I don’t think I’ve heard her talk that much in the whole time I’ve known her. Okay Sasche! Show us what you’ve got!

Electromagnetic Gigaflux Reactivator

Vital in keeping in touch with other survivors, I’ll be able to pick up radio wave transmissions with my helm.

Spaulders of Primordial Growth

The crackling electricity generated by these babies will keep my helm powered, won’t be one dropped call … guaranteed.

Enchanted Thorium Breastplate

Really Sasche? How come? Well, keeping spirits high in times of crisis is very important. I … well … I think it’s pretty.

Makes sense to me Sasche.

Buckskin Cape

I don’t know, it seems to just set the mood. I feel very survivory in it.

Bindings of Multiplicative Strikes

These were a no-brainer, anything that’s going to increase my strikes has got to be good for mowing through whatever dire foes abound in this apocalypse.

Bloody Surgeon’s Mitts

Injuries at the end of the world are a given, I’ll be ready at all times with my Bloody Surgeon’s Mitts equipped!

Aboriginal Loincloth

These can double as a swimsuit so on land or sea I’ll be able to swiftly escape without having to worry about a skirt getting tangled in my knee bones.

Boots of the Blowing Wind

The Goblin who sold these to me assured me that they’d increase my speed by 20%. Perfect for those times when staying and fighting is not the best option.

Scimitar of the Sirocco

I really will need a slashy, slashy sword to well … slash my way through hordes of, I don’t know, whatever. And a glowy one? That just makes it so much better.

Bureaucrat’s Handbook

Lastly, but probably the most important. When we prevail and start rebuilding what are we going to need? Yep, bureaucrats.

As for my pet, what’s most likely to survive the end of the world but roaches! What? Yeah … okay … and the bureaucrats but I don’t have a pet one. I’m bringing along my Resilient Roach to the end of the world.

Plaid Elf from Plenty of Paladins also provided a complete survivor ensemble:

You probably get the equivalent of the blog post this would have been in your email.  But hope it’s fun. It’s a fun contest idea, though required more thought than my usual. Originally I thought of doing a hunter mog, then was planning on doing Rimandrys as he’d handle the end of the world, bits of his current mog cobbled together with other things. When the contest is over that might yet rate a post. When it came down to making the mog though you get Saelindir’s ‘I’m totally a warlock or a druid or something much scarier than a priest’ End of the World Mog.
This is all stuff he could even equip at his current level, though I won’t pretend to vouch for how easy it would be to get his hands on some of it.
Head: Exorcist’s Dreadweave Hood (This serves the warlock or druid illusion, but is also practical for helping keep rain and stuff off at least a little bit.)
Shoulders: Geomancer’s Spaulders (No real practical reason, but even if it’s the end of the world you need a little bit of style and flair. Especially if you’re a blood elf.)
Chest: Witch Doctor’s Beads (These add to the intimidating illusion of something dangerous and maybe a little primitive, also have straps that things could be attached to and won’t weigh him down on spontaneous fishing trips. Also suits his personal taste. Some questing might be in order to pick them up for real.)
Wrists: Don’t show
Hands: Fireheart Gloves (Simple, practical gloves, useful for protecting the hands when you are scavenging through things or picking thorny plants.)
Waist: Cord of Reconstruction (It’s a plain belt, won’t get in the way and the name has sort of a hopeful ring to it.)
Legs: Aboriginal Loincloth (Well, won’t cause any problems when swimming, easy enough to dry and take care of and again suits his personal style)
Feet: Oilfoot Slippers (See that earlier comment about style and flair. Saelindir is of the opinion that one of the things you need to survive absolutely anything is a killer pair of boots. Plus he can take them off for swimming and will have removed about half his clothes just by doing that.)
Back: Cloak of Blade Turning (In case it gets cold. And because at night you’d want a blanket and one you can wear is easier to carry around.)
Staff: Staff of the Shadow Flame (This staff is chosen entirely because it looks intimidating and not priestly and if he runs into any dangerous folks during the apocalypse he’d rather they thought he was something scarier than a priest.)
Trusty Pet: Thistle the Mana Wyrmling (Because Mana Wyrms seem to be absolutely genius at sniffing out sources of arcane power, and you never know when you might need to find some. Especially if you’re a blood elf. Besides… it’s adorable in its own special way.)
I can’t help imagining these outfits being worn around some place like the Outlands version of Shadowmoon Valley. If anything in WoW looks like the end of the world, that’s it to me.

When we all build our bomb shelters garrisons I know who I’m going to call! Thanks ladies – you are da bomb! (shelter)
