Stinky – No. Not me. The Pet! #WoW

I have to apologize for the upcoming lack of posts, today Fable 3 comes out and I’ll be playing that for a little before NaNoWriMo starts for the month of November. No doubt I’ll still be around, but just not as much as usual. I’m really excited about both events, needless to say.

Last night I logged into WoW wondering what to do. With Cataclysm not too far off I don’t really feel like starting (yet another) character. I haven’t felt like questing, and I’m done grinding for justice.

My time in game last night was spent collecting companions (the little pets that don’t actually do anything) to earn the achievement “Shop smart. Shop Pet smart” for collecting 50 of them. I need more for the final achievement, but for now I’m happy with this little bit of progress.

I also noticed something a little interesting. I’m not sure when it changed, but my 69 death knight was gaining 3124 experience for harvesting herbs via herbalism in Northrend. I was only getting 2k or so experience for defeating the mobs right beside the nodes, and I found this amusing. While I was there a 71 rogue attempted to squash me, but we both died at the exact same time and they left me alone to my harvesting after that. My mining character is 80 but I noticed that the level 16 I was grouped with was gaining experience when I mined nodes in Wailing Caverns. Interesting.

Anyone else looking forward to Fable 3 releasing today? I sort of wish it were releasing for the PC today, but I’m quite happy with the XBox version, as I played Fable 2 for XBox extensively. In fact, it’s probably the only console game that I’ve ever really played to any extent, even though I own a wii, XBox, and PS3. Go figure.

Happy gaming no matter where you find yourself!

    I saw Fable 3 released today, but I’m going to hold off for a bit. I just got BioShock 2 for my 360, so need to beat that first.

    And yes, with 4.0.1, harvesting gives xp.

    I totally forgot about that change; yeah, you do gain XP for nodes now if you’re below 80 (or 85 come Cata.)

    Good job destroying the Rogue (I detest Rogue classes in MMOs) and good luck with NaNoWriMo. Even if we could do it in Europe I doubt I;d be bale to write hat much, since, by and large, I have trouble padding descriptions out.
