|You're going down, clown....|
What this also means is every spring forward I think I can stay up. But this year - it paid off.
Just as my friend was logging off, he was probably wondering why my goodnight's were curt - normally I wish him well, have a great day, all good things. (Oh, our friends in Azeroth-- you all really do make me happy!) But what I couldn't tell him was that I was in a life-and-death battle with a silver spawn named Mumta. You all know I am NEVER in the right place at the right time, but last night - I was. First of all, I was enjoying the Island without mobs of people--no one was there. Just me and the trolls. Mataoka is a veteran troll killer. There is not a tusked-toothed troll who can outrun her, who can zap or defeat her. Don't even try.
In one of the many mystical tombs, where Ceniza had discovered as a great place to down some spirits and Mogu, Mataoka was strolling the perimeter, and damn if he didn't spawn right there - no time to lose, tagged, bagged, and down! A warlock standing nearby started hitting it, too, and this is where I could use some clarification: I have tagged elites first, and others have gotten the loot -- is there loot for everyone now? I tried to party with a paladin for an Operation Shieldwall thing the other day, and he refused the invitation, and I said I just wanted credit for the kill, and he said why didn't I say that first? Well, because he was going down fast and there wasn't time for manners at that second...Oh well. In any case, warlock or no, it was me and my elementals, hero, wolves, and spunk.
This leads me to my question: How much do you prepare for patches? Do you like to be in a great amount of control, and know what's going to happen, where to look for things, or do you like to be surprised and see the journey unfold as you go? I think I do a combination of both -- don't do much research ahead of time, and then as I need, feed information or research to boost game experience.
