I’ve had my fair share of countless dungeon runs for specific drops and sometimes never ever getting what I run for, for example a decent wand upgrade for my Mage. However the other night Blizzard treat me well with not only the best night for item drops but one of the best Herioc runs I’ve ever done.
To kick start the love I ran Lost City of the Tol’vir specifically. When after particular items I prefer to run the dungeons I need then go random in hope to get them again if I didn’t get the item the first time. One of my rings was only 333 while the other was a rep vendor ring at 346, both still upgradeable. I came here to get my self the Veneficial Band but was happy when the Spirit Creeper Ring dropped from the first boss. Both decent upgrades, both dropping in the same run, and both going to ME!
On a high I then moved onto Halls of Origination where I had done a couple of runs in hope for Blood of Isiset as my one of my trinkets was still a green from quests and the other a decent 346 but DPS orientated. Whilst here though I was blessed not only a 200k+ tank who had took down all the current raid bosses and needed minimal healing but also a DPS group full of casters that pumped out a crazy amount of DPS and needed no upgrades. I was happy to get myself the herioc version of my current Soul Releaser as well as the Solar Wind Cloak both items I had forgot to put on my wish list. Needless to say after the times I’ve felt hard done by, this night of sheer love made it all worth it!
I got Halls of Lightning yesterday for my daily HC and the Librarian’s Paper Cutter dropped. Its not a massively rare BoE, but it did take me a good few runs to get lucky on my rogue when I was gearing up. Well its always nice to win a BoE as you’ll get a bit more profit on the Auction House. Well I was fortunate to win the roll before moving down the corridor towards the ‘burst to life’ statues. It wasn’t far before another dropped, I chuckled to myself thinking ‘hurr hurr, I wonder if I win this one also’. Well lightning struck twice and bam, winning roll, another Paper Cutter in my pack. Makes me curse the fact at how long I had spent on my rogue for this only to get two within 30 seconds.
Anyway, in other news, Cataclysm looks due for release on the 7th December. It hasn’t been announced officially but evidence had lead to prove it will be.
+ARENA_MASTER_NO_SEASON_TEXT = “Arena battles and Rated Battlegrounds are only available during an active player versus player combat season. Season nine will begin on December 14th, so be prepared at that time to take your shot at glory!”;

On top of that, people who noticed a possibly sneaky reference a couple of months back are getting their ‘I told you so’ ready. In the Operation: Gnomeregan Imminent event news, the end of the first paragraph has the line; the chance of any cataclysmic event taking place in the foreseeable future is “less than 12.7%. 12/07 or 07/12 to us European’s reading as the 7th of December. Now its all coming together :). Remember though, although this means another 2 months til the expansion, patches 4.0 etc will be released before the expansion giving you the new world and talents etc before your able to unlock the 80-85 zones, new races and level cap with the cd-key.
