Juuno’s delightful adventures


Hello CAW darlings!! I had a pretty much WoW-less week...*gasp* Sucks, I know, but I've been working on Garrison, moving some stuff out there, killing bugs (as usual), and also getting ready for October! I have at least 4 Halloween costumes to make so have been working on that, hehe. So yeah...it's my first week in a long time that I didn't get any gaming done. �� BUT no worries, I plan on getting some raiding done this week, I don't want to get behind! So that's all from me this week, but I hope you're all doing lots of WoWing and having a blast!!

/great big hugs & kisses! *muah!*
For the Horde, for the Alliance, & for IRL getting in the darn way,

This is Juuno of Earthen Ring & Korialstrasz!

Death to the damm blood knight
So shocking I played some WoW this week around my hearthstone games and here is my Audio Big G


A new feature!
Hail and well-met!
I bring you greetings from my Garrison, and news of a newly discovered feature!
I thought I should share that recently I’ve learned that our Guild Page, while not a pet who can do battle, has other talents and skills!  Leeta, I’ve discovered that these pages are capable of transcribing letters for us!  As a result, I’ve begun to dictate a number of my missives, letting him transcribe them and forward them as necessary for me.  This has created so much more time for me to work on other things.
Attached should be the transcription of my most recent missive.
“Be well…”

Hi CAW Crew,

Sorry for a lack of an audio this week. It's been a hectic busy one and with it being my last day before a week's holiday, i didn't have a spare minute to record anything.

So what I've been upto. Shalavyr my Lock Ironman died just before level 16 to one of those big dudes with the chains in the Scar out in Ghostlands. My Shaman Ironman Vuzelloa is level 7 now and going slowly. I started a new alt, Amayadorra who's a troll shaman and she's only level 5.

That's about it for this week, just been busy with work though i had some other playtime yesterday.

For the Horde,

Cheers,

Rigarmorty

Wow graphics
From Alisaunder
I've always enjoyed the Blizzard art style but lately, since Draenor caused me to spend so much time in the old world, I've started to notice the old textures and lower polygon counts.
How do you feel about the older art?
Do you not play that much in older content so don't care, or care enough that Blizzard should sacrifice newer content to go back and redo older pieces?
And would it bother you to see a 2015 building planted beside a grove of 2004 trees and squirrels?


Kristen's audio
Hi CaW crew!
Here’s my audio!
Lots of hugs,
Kristen
P.S. Sorry for the baby crying in the background. I forgot to turn off the tv and a baby was crying on it.


Rigarmorty CAW Audio 21 Aug 2015
Greatings CAW crew,

Attached is my audio for this week. It's been a busy one with at least one close call with my ironmans and a new alt I started yesterday. Below is pictures of my two level 15 Ironmen Wondavyre (Wonda-vere) and Shalavyre (Shall-a-vere) as well as my new mage alt Rilyannon (Ril-annon).

For the Horde,
For the Alliance,
For many alts!

Cheers,

Oh look they got Wrath in my Burning Crusade
Heya folks! Been a couple months, so I figured it was time for one of my increasingly sporadic email updates.

So what have I been up to? Well like most of you I spent tons of time in Tanaan Jungle prepping for flight, and while i was really excited at first, it quickly became Timeless Isle 2.0. I'm so tired of the place that I can't even force myself to send any alts there. I'm at the point where I just go there and kill the big four elites and maybe Kazzak to hopefully get one of the mounts to drop. I honestly expected to be flying around Draenor by now. We'll see if Blizz's "matter of weeks, not months" promise comes true.

You would think my being a bit unhappy with the current content of WoW would be limiting my play time but it hasn't. In fact it's allowed me to focus on the aspects of the game that I really like even more. I've finished up Glory of the Dragon Soul Raider in my many attempts farming for the Blazing Drake. I'm also on the last stage of the quest to obtain Dragonwrath. It's been fun coming up with creative ways to solo quests that are meant to be completed as a group and I can't wait to finally be able to purchase a Lil' Tarecgosa of my own. Running old raids and dungeons for achievements has quickly become my favorite thing to do in game. In fact my Alliance guild has set aside Thursday nights just for running old school stuff and we are now working on the Pandaria raids. It was during one of these nights that I had my first foray into the Terrace of Endless Spring to kill the Sha of Fear and finally earn my Tranquil Master title.

OK it's been months... there's got to be more right? Oh yeah my personal grudge match with Leeta on the Warcraftpets.com realm leader boards still continues even though she probably didn't even know about it till now. I swear every time I nudge ahead of her she logs on and does like eleventy seventy pet battles and blows by me. I'm almost ashamed of the amount of gold I've spent in the AH on new pets but its nice to know I finally have all the TCG pets with my purchase of both the Dragon Kite and Tuskarr Kite a couple weeks ago. I also bought Hatespark the Tiny which is good news for the people who didn't get one from the 10th anniversary event because, with my luck, Blizz will mail one to everyone just for logging on next year. Oh well it's only gold right?

Now for a couple things I just learned that is probably common knowledge, but some others may have overlooked. You can send your followers to do a little archaeology by purchasing explorers notebooks. It's a good way to make the profession a little more tolerable until flying happens in Draenor. Also did you guys know that the Timewalking dungeons are considered max level heroics and thus can be used for the "Looking for... "achievements. I didn't until I got the Looking for Many achievement after kicking butt in the Black Morass last week. Mebbe the Perky Pug will finally be mine.

OK I'm going to go back to looking at the Legion announcement stuff for the 53rd time and buy my Virtual Ticket. So have a good show and I'll work on being more coherent in my next email.

Later folks,
Alztraj
