Not-an-Otter

Moumix excitedly told me he had an otter for me to tame in ARK where we’ve been playing with a small group of friends – and then he dropped THIS monstrosity into a 1×1 house.

Granted, it’s not completely useless, it has a ‘popcorn aura’ that encourages other dinosaurs to become hungry more often, making them the perfect taming companion, but it was definitely not the cute little otter I was expecting.


June Gaming Goals – 2021

This month gaming has been quiet but steady, even though I didn’t get a lot accomplished.

Incomplete:

  • I haven’t been playing Wurm Unlimited or Online at all, so of course no progress on Quail Plaza. I do still log in so my places won’t vanish, at least. Upkeep is holding well on Independence, and I’m not worried about anything walking off.
  • I did not complete any older games in my steam library – but I have been playing some! That’s progress.
  • Did not complete the next chapter in Divinity with the husband, but we have been playing ARK together on a server with some other Combat Wombat members.

Complete:

  • I did re-establish where I was at in GW2, and made progress on my legendary precurser! That was a big step. It required 15 days of crafting, which ate up a lot of my time.

June Goals:

  • Continue with my GW2 legendary work, and look into obtaining the next mount
  • Try to play a little Divinity Original Sin II with the husband
  • Earn 1 million gold in World of Warcraft so I can break 10 million on a single server (Alliance).


Oh No – My House!

I’m sure he didn’t mean to stomp all over my house after a bloody battle with a spino, but that’s exactly what happened. I love the little dodo bird there by his foot for scale..


A Girl and her Chicken

Any game where I can wander around holding a chicken in my arms is an instant win for me.


Snarf II

This little fella looking at me through the window of my base is Snarf II – the first one having been eaten by something (I am not quite sure what). Cute? Yes. Absolutely.

I’m back playing ARK with a handful of people from Combat Wombat, and I’ve already died more times than in any other game I’ve ever played, I am pretty sure.


Animal Update

Wurm Online has recently released an update that includes an overhaul to the animal husbandry system – and I’m very excited. They’ve added new animals, new traits, new methods of feeding them, and all sorts of other goodies for those who are interested in breeding animals with specific traits. You can finally make use of traits in ‘farm’ animals, having them provide more milk and other products.

I don’t have any donkey or mules yet, but I’m excited for the people who are breeding them. I think it’s a nice overhaul to the system (though it’s not without its bugs at the moment). Gives players something ‘new’ to do, whether they are veterans or new players.

I have been continuing on with my deed on Independence. I do still have a second deed over on Cadence as well, but I haven’t been doing much with that one. I would still love for them to join the North and South servers sometime in the future, but it’s looking like that might not actually be a thing. We’ll just have to see. I have a 100 faith Fo priest over there that I’d like to bring over to Indy, in the meantime, I suppose I could work on my Vynora priest.

Happy gaming, no matter where you find yourself!


Stepping Back In

I stepped away from World of Warcraft for a few months because I just wasn’t feeling Shadowlands. It has a bunch of rehashed systems that are not enjoyable, a huge grind with multiple currencies (stygia anyone? How about anima) and even though the zones LOOK pretty I find the entire expansion a slog.

The one thing that DOES interest me and continues to do so, is gold making. So, I jumped right back into it. The felfury gauntlets I’ve had for ages (I farmed them myself) finally sold for an enormous amount, and that was all it took to hook me. Since I already pay for my account with gold, I never really ‘left’ per say, but it’s still nice to be playing again, in some capacity.

Happy gaming, no matter where you find yourself!


So Many DLC (so little time)

It has been quite some time since I’ve played Cities: Skylines, and it showed when I went to see which DLC I was missing. Even with the 50% off sale that was going on, it would cost me over $100 to purchase the ones I was missing. A lot of those are cosmetic items, but I did pick up four DLC that I was missing that looked moderately interesting. They were the more expensive ones, as I was hoping they’d provide actual content. I didn’t get a lot of time to play, but I did re-familiarize myself with the basics. This game is one of my favourite city builders, and if for some reason you haven’t picked it up yet, you should give it a shot.

Happy gaming, no matter where you find yourself!


Roller Beetle Acquired!

It wasn’t too bad at all to get, me and my husband finally managed to unlock our roller beetles! YAY! I have a beautiful cosmos skin and even though I find the mount VERY difficult to control, it’s a LOT of fun. Next up? The next mount and a bit of work on my legendary precurser. 9 more days of crafting until I can move to part 3 of that one.

Happy gaming, no matter where you find yourself!


Warclaw Obtained!

I was able to finish off the PVP track that allows you to purchase Warclaw – and I’m so glad I did, because the entire time I was working on the track I felt so behind trying to chase everyone else all around the map. Plus, it’s just nice to have another mount completed.
