Frostkitty!!!


So, what If I told you, you could have your own Frostsaber, whether you are alliance or horde?

Now, what if I told you, you could even take this frosty cat with you to a job that doesn’t allow you to play wow?

This puss took me more hours than my old-fashioned, pre-daily, frostsaber rep grind, but the rewards are well worth it if you ask me. He sit’s up on the edge of my cubicle where me and my neighbors can enjoy looking at him daily. Oh, did I mention the best part? HE’S MADE OF PAPER!! Yup, printed, folded paper with a bit of glue and double-sided tape. He’s only one of my current papercrafting projects, but he get’s no less attention for it. Plus he makes it easy for people to find me whenever I move desks.

A BIG shout to PMF for creating these awesome files!!!!

And now for the details on how to get your own!

The Frostsaber files can be found here.

You will need Winrar, Acrobat reader (or some variation), and MOST importantly Pepakura to read the PDO files.

My papercrafting tips:

  • Invest in lots of double-sided tape.. even if you know you’re going to end up gluing a difficult part, it’s good to stick it together first to make sure you’re matching up the right stuff. (I buy the 3-packs from Walmart)
  • Toothpicks. They are great for getting small amounts of glue to cover a small area and to even it out. Plus you can use them to smooth down, and hold a tab together where fingers can’t reach. Clothespins are also a good investment for holding together open areas when you have to use your hands for other thinks like documenting calls.
  • Work in sections. Label your tabs, pages, and openings well. It’s very easy to lose track of what goes where.
  • Plastic bags, label stickers, and/or tupperware. I put the parts for each page into separate bags, label the bags, and put the larger parts into the tupperware containers.
  • Check your pages!!! I can’t stress this one enough. One of the projects I worked on had a complete section where the printed guide didn’t match the colored cutouts. I attempted to work past it, but it became impossible (I still don’t know if those pieces ever fit together). I fixed it eventually by printing the pepakura file instead of the pdf, but I lost about two and a half weeks on the project. Also my current project has pieces that are too dark to see where the folds are, and it’s not clear about the peaks and valleys, so I had to stop what I was doing and reprint the guide from home.

Bad Man (Mor’Ladim) by Sharm


This weeks post is dedicated to the beautiful Synthetic Siren, Sharm. The offering is a song that I have loved since it’s original incarnation sung by The Who, Behind Blue Eyes. Sharm sings the song beautifully and has given us a spin on the “How lonely it is to be powerful” take on the original.  The parody is from the game World of Warcraft, and focus’s on the story of the knight Morgan Ladimore. Morgan was a knight who returned home after the war to find his wife and children buried, and in his grief struck out and killed the cemetery attendants who tried to restrain him. In death he roams the cemetery, killing all who venture near. The full story can be found here

Live DESKTOP Wallpaper, featuring Mists of Pandaria


So we all love live wallpapers on our phones (well, maybe not the battery loss though). DreamScene makes it possible to enjoy our own videos as an active, moving desktop without the battery loss! (Unless you happen to not be on a desktop….). You can use any video you like for your new wallpaper, but what’s better than ones from WoW? I’ve gathered a few videos for the blog which I’ll be posting periodically among the other crafty things I have planned. Today’s pick is one from the latter levels of Mists of Pandaria. Warning, spoiler alert!
You can get the Dreamscene application here

Install, and just right-click your WMV and choose “Set as Desktop Background”. Enjoy your new wallpaper!

Spoilers Ahead!

Wonder Woman Transmogrification


Welcome to the first edition of Shakarra’s Transmog Guide! The spotlight this time around is a little love for the ladies, Wonder Woman. Guys, no complaints if this gear doesn’t look nearly as HOT on you as it does us! Girls play WoW too, you know?

I’ve tried to center around gear that doesn’t take a no-life-raiding stance, or those quest rewards you long ago sold on your way to Loremaster. Everything you see can be found via drops and crafting. I will always do my best to find a piece for every armor type, and my apologies for missing shoulder pieces as of posting this my WMV is not being very cooperative with them . If you see a piece you think fits better, post it! Enjoy!

Special thanks to http://www.icy-veins.com/ for making the pieces so much easier to identify!

New MoP background


Time for a new look to go along with the new direction of the blog! Needed an update for the expansion anyway ;). Give me a rate and tell me what you think!


Its been a long sabbatical for this little shammy, and a long and strange trip. I created this blog some time ago to to help my guild, and others , with raiding progression and did my best to help with achievements, mostly the holiday ones. I stopped around the start of Firelands because my life took a drastic turn. I found myself moving from Australia, back to the states and doing all I can to get back on my feet. Happy to say that I’m starting to make some good progress, got an ok paying job, transportation and finally putting my life back together.

Anyway, on to the blog! Like my life there will be some changes made to the content. I will be focusing less on the raiding goals, at the moment I’m not raiding any harder then LFR (if there’s any late-late night guilds out there looking for a couple healing shammies, or a healing monk and shaman, toss me a reply). I want to bring forward some of the more fun areas of our World of Warcraft. Here’s some of the things I hope to bring forward here with the coming of the next expansion….

Transmogrification – I have this listed as a huge project for my blog, I hope to look into mogs of storybook characters, superheroes, movies, etc. Whatever may come. I hope to include multi-type for each mog where possible. That superman plate costume might look really nice on that pally, but wouldn’t you like something similar on your priest or shaman?

Music – This is a two part section for me. WoW has a lot of really talented musical artists, from the parody Queens Ember Isolte, Silver Letomi (I will miss you <3), Sharm and Gigi. To the original rockers, Druidboyz, Wick, Cranius and Lvl 90 etc. I will try to feature some of the best and newest music out there in our gaming world. On the other side of this coin, I may on occasion release some playlists. Not all of us can tolerate the game sounds after the first month, and having a great pumping-up soundtrack to enjoy the game with is a must!

Crafting – I don’t have much for this section as yet. For myself, I do some pretty awesome paper-crafting while I’m at work. I didn’t come up with the designs, but I’ll be more then happy to post pic’s of the finished ones and links to download the patterns. Potentially in the future this may also include some drawings and maybe even some cross stitch patterns, we will see where it goes.

Pet Battles – Ok, I’m a bit old to have gotten into the pokemon trend, but I am an avid pet collector. No doubt there will be posts galore on how to get the latest and greatest pets, and probably some battle stats as well. We’ll see what the story is when Blizz brings us live.

Achievements – This won’t be as extensive as my previous lists, work and just enjoying the game and all my army of alts will be consuming enough. I will be trying to keep the holidays up to date though, as well as any changes blizzard plans on making like new pets, mounts, or cool new toys.

So hopefully you all will enjoy the new changes, and if you can think of any fun new things, I look forward to hearing from you!

Pre-Firelands BiS Restoration Shaman and more……..


It’s that time again! Firelands 4.2 patch is rapidly approaching, and much of the gear to come from it has been announced. So it has been tasked to the Extra Bag Space members to once again wake up our collective minds and come up with a list of the best in slot items for your Firelands to do lists! On today’s list, we have available Best in Slot lists for Retribution Paladin, Holy Paladin, Holy Priest, Destruction/Affliction Warlock, Feral Druid(Bear and Cat), and of course my own Restoration Shaman. All of our guides are put together, and posted in our public forums at www.extrabagspace.org. And I promise, they have Item Links!

As a focus going in to 4.2, Blizzard has seemed to put an emphasis on healers to focus on crit as a secondary stat. This seems to be even more so for resto shamans Daritos Food For Thought. With these changes in mind, I’ve weighed the BiS gear to:
Intellect>Spirit>Haste>Crit>Mastery.

Head: Erupting Volcanic Faceguard (Tier 12)/Crown of Flame – Ragnaros

Neck: Heartstone of Ryolith – Lord Rhyolith

Shoulders: Craterflame Spaulders – Alysrazor/Erupting Volcanic Mantle(Tier 12)

Back: Flowing Flamewrath Cloak – Avengers of Hyjal (Friendly): Upgraded via a Crystallized Firestone, dropped by Fireland bosses in heroic mode

Chest: Erupting Volcanic Tunic (Tier 12)

Wrist: Cauterizing Wristbands – Lord Rhyolith

Weapon: Hammer of the Firelord – Ragnaros/Dragonwrath, Terecgosa’s Rest: While the int on Dragonwrath makes this item incredible, even for healers despite the hit on it, this should still unquestionably go to casters first.

Shield: Ward of the Red Widow – Beth’tilac

Relic: Singed Plume of Aviana – 700 Valor Points: Upgraded via a Crystallized Firestone, dropped by Fireland bosses in heroic mode

Hands: Erupting Volcanic Handguards (Tier 12)

Waist: Girdle of the Flaming Foothold – Avengers of Hyjal (Honored): Upgraded via a Crystallized Firestone, dropped by Fireland bosses in heroic mode

Legs: Thoracic Flame Kilt – Beth’tilac/Erupting Volcanic Legwraps (Tier12)

Feet: Footwraps of Quenched Fire – Leatherworking Crafted/Treads of Implicit Obedience – Shannox

Rings: Quicksilver Signet of the Avengers -Avengers of Hyjal (Exalted)/Soothing Brimstone Circle 1250 Valor Points: Upgraded via a Crystallized Firestone, dropped by Fireland bosses in heroic mode

Trinkets: Jaws of Defeat – Majordomo Staghelm/Eye of Awareness – Alysrazor

Restoration Shaman Guide

Retribution Paladin Guide

Holy Paladin Guide

Holy Priest Guide

Destruction/Affliction Warlock Guide

Feral Druid Guide (Bear)

Feral Druid Guide (Cat)

PTR testing, updates and more..


I haven’t been writing much outside of the holiday guides, but it’s my goal to get back on track. We’ve downed Nefarian and Al’Akir, making EBS 12/12 Defenders of a Shattered World. I will begin working with my guild shortly to make guides available for these final two bosses. We have since also downed Heroic Halfus, though I don’t plan on writing any more guides past the normal 12 bosses. Firelands will remain to be seen as of yet, but I doubt I will be continuing to write, and instead focus on catching up on some achievement guide posts which are long past due. (Many of which have been changed since the release of this expansion).

I’ve been hard at work lately on leveling some alts, as Saurfang is still a relatively new server for me. I like having my professions covered and I’m still working toward this goal on this server, having no gold sucks. I’ve been vigilant on keeping you all updated with the holidays as they come out as well, many of which have seen some change since the remaking of the world. The travel ones in particular (Bring on Midsummer next, and I will do my best to have new coordinates for you all). I also have a side project going with the creation of my first machinima, based off a song written and performed by my ex-husband. Being as video editing is something I really want to take further in my life, I won’t be posting it on youtube until it’s absolutely perfect in my eyes, even if the draft right now is passable for posting.

I’ve also been playing around on the PTR. Yesterday I ventured in and faced off against Alysrazor. We didn’t get far in the fight unfortunately, our 3 pulls were accidental simply because someone in the party couldn’t resist ‘trying to pick up the pretty feather’ lying on the ground. After loosing a tank, the group fell apart. I did see enough of the fight though, mixed in with the help of the new in-game dungeon helper, to have an idea of its playability though. Don’t stand in the fire bubbles running around on the ground. Pick up 1 feather, run fast and cast while moving, pick up 2 feathers and more of the same, 3 feathers and you find yourself flying on the back of a bird. Obviously that 3rd is for the melee so I didn’t get to see what it was like up there, but from what they told me, you do take falling damage. On the ground you have chicks that target you and chase you, from what I can gather you want to lead these to the worms on the ground so they will eat them and become sated (vulnerable?) I couldn’t really confirm this last bit though with so few pulls. (I tried going with 2 other groups, but the results were abysmal and not worth mentioning as I didn’t even come close to a boss pull with them).

Today was supposed to be dedicated to Majordomo Staghelm. I was really psyched to go against this guy as I’ve followed a bit of the lore from Fandral from “Stormrage”, played a bit on the ally side a while back, and remember leading him out of the cave through the nightmare in the Hyjal quests. Alas he was not to be. Though I found a group of very friendly people to run this time around, real raiders to the core, the ptr had other ideas. 30 minutes after the instance was supposed to open and everyone was still waiting, Blizz finally decided it was time to restart the server to make it active. When we got back, it was worse than before, people floating in the air, dc’ing when they got near the portal, instance not found, not able to re-accept invites because the game apparently thought we were still grouped. After another 30 minutes of this, they finally decided it was borked, and rescheduled it for another time.

I hit the mailbox before logging though, and learned some interesting things…
The first thing I learned, is that there’s a new animation for when you’re checking your mail..
(you now look like you’re reading a map when you open your mailbox)

Second thing I learned, is that having pet achievements pays off. They were kind enough to send me 2 free pet biscuits, like the ones from the TCG. I’m guessing this is achievement related, but I couldn’t tell you at how many pets you get them at. I have roughly 155, and got 2 biscuits.
And on that note about pets, I found something else waiting for me in the mail as well…..
(again going under the assumption he’s achievement related)

This is Nuts. Yes, that’s his name. Pictured here with a pet biscuit, he’s actually same size as about a prairie dog pet. Although not as cute as my Moonkin Hatchling, he’s still quite a charmer. His cutest animation though, and I found this while being partial afk at the mailbox, is when he’s tired of waiting for you and stuns you by throwing an acorn at your head.

I really wanted to get a fraps of the inside of the instance for you guys today, the web area is just AMAZING, but I guess I’m just going to have to keep my eyes open for the next time they do the testing.
On another side note, since I logged on to the ptr an hour early, I decided to check the daily quest area. Like the cata zones it starts with a call to arms on the Org board. Sends you out to the west side of Hyjal (the exact place escapes me atm). But a note: You have to be quite far (maybe even completed) the Hyjal zone for these quests to be available. So that might be something you may wish to work on before 4.2 goes live.

 

Edit: the pets for the numbered pets have changed since I posted this.

  • Littlest Pet Shop, 150 pets, now rewards Celestial Dragon
  • Menagerie, 125 pets, now rewards Brilliant Kaliri
  • Petting Zoo, 100 pets, now rewards Nuts’ Acorn

Children’s Week, 2011


The easiest thing to forget when working on the Children’s week achievements, is having your orphan summoned when you do all of these things. To get you started, you can pick up your Orc or Human orphan in Orgrimmar in the Drag area (just below the cooking/inscription trainers) or for the Alliance, in the Cathedral district (east side). In Shattrah you can get a Dreanei or Blood Elf Orphan, or in Dalaran you can pick up a Wolvar or Oracle orphan. You’ll be handed a whistle with which you can complete quests, and complete the achievements. If you lose the whistle or want to carry the orphan around a while after doing the quests, just talk to one of the matron’s again. Blizzard has given us a great slew of achievements that we can drag our poor, unsuspecting children through. Each more dangerous than the last. Teach the kids early on that life is hard, I say…

Home alone: Use your Hearthstone while your orphan is with you. LOL yup, torture the little bugger while you leave her behind as you jump from city to city.

Bad Example: Eat the sweets listed below while your orphan is watching. [Tigule and Foror’s Strawberry Ice Cream, Red Velvet Cupcake, Lovely Cake Slice, Dalaran Doughnut, Tasty Cupcake, Delicious Chocolate Cake,  Dalaran Brownie] All but 3 of these are available in Dalaran. The Tigule and Foror’s Strawberry Ice Cream can be found in Org off the vendor during the holiday, Tasty Cupcake and Delicious Chocolate Cake are cooking recipes.

Daily Chores: Complete 5 daily quests with your orphan out. Nothing really to say about this, pick a place where you need to do quests and have at it.

Aw Isn’t It Cute?: Obtain one of the Children’s Week reward pets. Each orphan has a set of quests available when you pick them up, do the quests and get the pet. each of the 3 orphans has different pets available, 3 for Orc, 3 for Blood Elf, and either Oracle or Wolvar. (If you only want to do the quests for one orphan, I suggest getting the Shattrah orphan for Veteran Nanny)

School of Hard Knocks: Take your orphan into the battlegrounds and complete the feats listed below. [Capture the flag in Eye of the Storm(EOTS), Assault a flag in Arathi Basin(AB), Assault a tower in Alterac Valley(AV), Return a fallen flag in Warsong Gulch(WSG)].

This has got to be my most hated achievement of all time. Especially as one who would normally pvp as a healer. Pray you have some nice people from the other faction when doing most of these. Children’s week will be covered by EOTS and AV weekends this year.

EOTS – grab the flag from the center of the map and run it to one of your bases, hopefully you have a base, and hopefully you are even able to get a flag. (I will be immensely enjoying thunderstorming all of you off the ledge after I finish my achievements this weekend).

AB – Be ready to hit the gate running. If you have good latency, drop off and hit farm as soon as the gate opens. If not, try blacksmith, lumber mill, or mines.

AV – Assault a tower means you have to hit the other faction’s. So ride on til you’re more than half way across the map, and look for a nice tower to hit. Failing that, watch your map, for other towers that have changed sides. If all else fails, look for a tower that seems to be going back and forth, you might just find some people who are there for the same purpose as you, giving you an easy tap.

WSG – My nemesis achievement. If you find good luck, you could end up with an ally in your base that runs in, attacks no one, picks up the flag, and drops it. If you are here for the achievement, DON’T kill him. He’s there to help you, and is probably going to be hoping that you will be doing the same for him in return.

Side notes on this particular achievement. Yeah I know it’s already a wall of text, but its the nature of the beast. DON’T forget to make sure your orphan is up. You will die. A lot. Pay it forward if you find someone of the other faction trying to help out. There will probably be plenty of people on your side who are there to actually pvp, and won’t hesitate to take advantage of the vulnerable helpers. Ready a /truce or /wait macro, or both. People may be less likely to kill you if you’re trying to help, not all, but some who are there for the same reason as you. Also, if you get into a helpful bg, this is an ideal time to work on some of your other pvp achievements. I know I’m pretty close on Tower Defense in AV, and I’m hoping to get Persistent Defender in WSG and maybe some AB ones as well.

Hail To The King, Baby: Defeat King Ymiron in Utgarde Pinnacle with your orphan out. This doesn’t even require heroic, I would be surprised if there was a class at 85 that couldn’t easily solo this guy.

Veteran Nanny: Acquire Egbert’s Egg, Sleepy Willy, and Elekk Training Collar on one character. Fortunately it was decided in the first year of achievements that this would not be included in the meta. It takes 3 years to complete. Pick up a Dreanei or Blood Elf whistle in Shattrah respectfully, and complete the orphan’s quests. The pet counts for Aw, Isn’t It Cute?

Noblegarden, 2011


Noblegarden is a holiday that centers solely and completely up on the collection of ‘Brightly Colored Eggs’. In order to complete each of the achievements, you need to collect the chocolate from the hidden eggs and use that chocolate to both complete some of the achievements, as well as use as currency to buy the items needed to complete the other achievements.
You need a maximum total of 355 eggs to have every achievement. I say maximum, because not only does each egg have a chance at dropping the chocolaty currency, it can also drop any one of the required items for the meta! Meaning unless you are the most unlucky person in the world, you probably won’t need all the required chocolates listed. The best strategy I have for this, is to keep track of your eggs. Each time one of the items drops, subtract that from the total eggs needed (You just got a Spring Rabbit from that egg? Great! That’s 100 fewer eggs you have to find now!)
You can find the eggs in the level 5 start zones of each city.. Brill, Razor Hill, Bloodhoof Village, and Falconwing Square for the horde. (ok, ok, allys, you can find yours in Kharanos, Goldshire, Dolanaar, and Azure Watch) [It’s unlikely that areas will be added for Goblin or Worgen start areas, and Gnomes and Trolls should still share the same level 5 start zones as they always have.]

I Found One!: Find a Brightly Colored Egg. Really basic, find your first hidden egg.

Chocolate Lover: Eat 25 Noblegarden Chocolates during the Noblegarden celebration. This is the first achievement mark on the way to getting Chocoholic, which is 100 eggs.

Sunday’s Finest: Discover the White Tuxedo Shirt and Black Tuxedo Pants by opening Brightly Colored Eggs during the Noble Garden celebration. While these pieces are needed for Blushing Bride achievement, finding them in the eggs is not a part of the meta. That said, you will probably find at least one of them on your search anyway.

Dressed for the Occasion: Discover an Elegant Dress by opening Brightly Colored Eggs during the Noblegarden celebration. Not required for the meta, not required for one of the other achievements. This is one for the achievement whores to farm (Yay! 10 more epeen points! Yes, I did in fact farm this dress last year, and right after, my shadow priest alt opened it on her first egg. Ah well, least it looks sexier on the Blood Elf). Try to find someone who has it so you can complete Blushing Bride.

Hard Boiled: Lay an egg in Un’Goro Crater’s Golakka Hot Springs as a rabbit during the Noblegarden celebration. Find a friend, or you may be camping here waiting. You need to find someone with a Blossoming Branch to transform you into a bunny once you get there. Once you’re a bunny, just stick around for a minute or 2 and you’ll lay the egg and get the achievement. (you can buy a branch with chocolate, but since you can’t use it on yourself, the cost is not factored into the 355 total)

Spring Fling: Find your pet Spring Rabbit another one to love in each of the towns listed below. (See the starting towns list above). Buy or find a Spring Rabbit’s Foot. Summon it up in the towns as you look for eggs, chances are you’ll have it done in no time. You might need to work with a friend for the less common towns if you put it off longer then the first day (chances are first day, every one of the towns will have a fair number of people). The pet costs 100 chocolate if you don’t find it in an egg.

Noble Garden: Hide a Brightly Colored Egg in Silvermoon City. Buy an egg, place it in Silvermoon’s Murder Row district. The egg costs 5 chocolate, it’s the only thing you won’t find in one of the eggs.

Shake Your Bunny-Maker: Use Spring Flowers to place rabbit ears upon females of at least 18th level. [Blood Elf, Dreanei, Dwarf, Gnome, Human, Night Elf, Orc, Tauren, Troll, Undead]. Yeah… good luck with this one. Without a central meeting place for horde and alliance this will be quite a bit more difficult at best. The level 18 restriction effectively rules out the standard have-a-friend-roll-an-alt strategy. PvP battlegrounds, Tol Barad are probably your best bets.. Tol Barad Peninsula if you don’t want to get yelled at by the people actually WANTING to pvp. Outside SW or Org and maybe you’ll get lucky finding some dueling females. Be aware the flowers drop or are purchased, and they have a cd. Don’t use them on someone who already has the buff. The flowers cost 50 chocolate.

Desert Rose: Use Spring Robes to plant a flower in each of the deserts listed below. [Badlands, Desolace, Silithus, Tanaris, Thousand Needles]. Ok, so maybe half of these aren’t deserts anymore, but still. Dress is buy or drop, just like almost everything else, its /use ability will plant the flower. The dress costs 50 chocolate.

Blushing Bride: Kiss someone wearing an Elegant Dress while wearing a White Tuxedo Shirt and Black Tuxedo Pants. If you don’t get both pieces as a drop, buy what you need. Ask a friend who has a dress to help you out, hope someone in the start zones is wearing one, or, as a last resort, ask in trade. The Tuxedo pieces cost 25 chocolate each, and make for a good role-play set if you’re into it. (You can buy a dress with chocolate, but since you can’t use it on yourself to get the achievement, the cost is not factored into the 355 total)

If you find yourself with some extra chocolate, you can also buy a Spring Circlet (which is a helm that looks like bunny ears, really nice for rp) for 50 chocolate, and mages may want to invest in the Tome of Polymorph: Rabbit for 100 chocolate. The circlet can drop from eggs as well, but the tome will not.
