I was finally for the first time able to hit one million DPS on a boss battle.

Our weekly casual raids are great, part of the reason being that my daughter is also having a great time there with me.

These raids aren’t about damage meters, but everyone is looking all the time anyway.  LOL.  So here is the pic just after the boss died, and me sitting at the top.  Yippie!!!

Last night we had quite a lovely feast with the family before our game night.

The past three Fridays have been really fun with this new guild I joined.  It’s pretty casual and that’s just how I like it.  It’s full of old people, of which I am one, and I have to admit, sometimes it is nice to be around people my own age in this game full of young people.  It’s not that I don’t like young people.   I do.  However it’s nice to have a few people around who have used a VHS player before.

They use Mumble, and stubbornly so.  It’s a Discord world, but after using Mumble for a while I have to admit it works pretty well.

Anyway, we’ve been doing Nighthold for three weeks in a row and my daughter has joined us for two of those.

As a shadow priest, my DPS is frustrating.  My AOE is basically non-existant and so I suffer with my contribution in everything except boss fights.  I can dish in boss fights, though, but for any trash I just am at the bottom of the meter.

But the group doesn’t call anyone out for anything; dps, stepping in goo, adds, and I really like that.  Because we only have done normal, that’s really fine.  If we do heroic, as discussed by our raid leader, I think that we will have problems.  I’d rather just do normal all the time, but we’ll see.  I just want to see the fights, that’s all.  I’m so new that it isn’t for me to offer my opinion.  I will follow.

Here are a few pictures.

First pic is the Astromancer!  WHAT A FUN FIGHT!  He is soooo cool.  Love the places he takes us, the stuff he says.  An inspired design.

This next one is us on break.  I aggroed here the first time out, and it was a little messy, but nobody gave me crap.

Here we are facing Gul’dan.  I like this one because I play Gul’dan in Heroes of the Storm so it’s fun to face him here.

Vanity pic.  My DPS on the Gul’dan fight.  #2.  I will take that position happily!  I just want to pull my weight, and I do on the boss fights if nothing else.  I like that the guild doesn’t call this stuff out, but it’s still nice to see the good numbers.

I’ve been playing World of Warcraft and really enjoying it.

My shadow priest is not good but I like him.

I can’t do very good damage against trash, but against bosses I can do ok.  Here is one final result against some boss and I was pretty happy.

I joined a guild and it is so far really pretty fun.  I’ve done two raids with them.  Here is a pic of the group.

One of the things I do like about Shadow Priests is the epic weapon.  Mine talks to me, and doesn’t actually say nice things.  Here is what she said to me yesterday:

We are at Disney Florida.

It's day 2, and since I have been here so many times, I'm really not interested in getting it all done.

I just want to go at a more leisurely pace this time.

Just happy to have the family together for another family trip.

So far in 2017 there are three purchases that I like the most.

  1.  a little window air conditioner in our bedroom.  We make the room so nice and cozy, and I didn’t see the electric bill go up at all.
  2. airpods – I have wanted blutooth headphones for a long time, and these, by Apple, are amazing!
  3. A second monitor for my computer.  This has been an amazing change, so invaluable, I will never go back.  I can play and watch and surf all at the same time.  Highly recommended.
