The Final 40.

The count down has started, and I doubt the natural ability to sleep is going to take over me. And I have to work tonight. It's crunch time and Im running over all the processes in my head. My motivation, my spec, my strategy, everything! And last wishes or advice are much appreciated!

Wow Party! And the best pull I have ever made in Magic Boosters

This Tuesday, when Cataclysm is released, I'm going to a 4 day LAN party with some guys from my guild. I seriously doubt that any of us are going to get sleep. So my plan is to buy Monster Energy Drinks for $1 and turn right around and sell them for $2 at the event. Even though Monster is considered the shit tier of energy beverages, right now the Kroger that I work at is having a massive sale on them and gamers love convienence. Go me!

Also, the other day I bought a few Worldwake boosters and pulled Jace, the Mind Sculptor. Non foil, but this card is currently worth $90. The feeling that I felt was just through the roof.
AHHHHHH The Lens Glare!
This card is sexy. However, as soon as you bring it out, Jace paints a HUGE target on his head screaming, "KILL ME! KILL ME BEFORE I TAKE YOU DOWN YOU SON OF A BITCH!"

Thanks for all the Support so far!

Thanks for the comments about my soon to be adventure in WoW. Even if the server first achievements are gone, I do plan to get to 85 as fast as possible. This way I can get into Tol Barad, get my portal, and start charging people for it! Might sound mean, but its a way to earn pointless currency!!! Horray me!!

Anyways, before the 7th I plan to have 25 quests completed in my log, and as soon as I'm able to log in and level, I'm going to turn in all the quests I have and then teleport my way to Orgrimmar and then go to Mount Hyjal. Im still not sure if I want to go to Mount Hyjal or Vash'ir. The pictures below shows my expected path from 80 to 85. Tell me what you think!
From the map above, I will be starting in the middle of Storm Peaks to start firing off daily quests until my quest log is empty. Once I finish up turning in all 25 quests in Northrend I will port myself to Orgrimmar to fly straight to Mount Hyjal.

I will start power questing in Mount Hyjal and when I'm done questing there I will fly straight to Uldum down below and begin the questing there until I hit 85. If for some reason I don't hit 85, I will then quickly go over to the Twlight Highlands over in the Eastern Kingdoms.

Thanks for reading, and as always, comments are appreciated! Even the mean negative ones!

My goals in WoW for Cataclysm

I really want to get a server first achievement. I'm looking for server first Mage myself. Over the next few days I will explain about what I have in mind for how I am going to get this achievement.

Today I am looking at 80-85 speed leveling specs. Out of all three specs, Frost and Arcane look the best. I choose not to go fire because even though it looks aoe friendly, Blizz has stated that aoe in general is not the direction they wanted to take.

I am thinking about Frost as a leveling spec just because it's the traditional leveling spec pre 4.0.1. That, and with the ranged frost nova from the Water Elemental, and the Frostbolt Chill Cleave, it might help when I aggro more mobs than I can currently handle.

I am also thinking about Arcane because of talents, Arcane Blast can be talented to also put Slow on my current target. That, and with the high damage that Arcane Blast can pump out, I can imagine I can just shred through mobs. Improved Polymorph is going to be helpful for that needed stun.

Overall I can see myself going both ways, and with just a week left before Cataclysm, I need to get my shit together and find out what I am going to do!

Let me know what you guys think!

Recent haul in MTG

So on Saturday I bought 6 boosters of Rise of the Eldrazi, and 6 boosters of Worldwake. 12 total and down $40 bucks. I actually didn't do to bad for my haul of rares and mythic rares.

Rise of the Eldrazi Rares:
1 Surrakar Spellblade
1 Disaster Radius
1 Devastating Summons
1 Conquering Manticore
1 Momentous Fall
1 Awakening Zone

Over all not bad. With my plans to make an Eldrazi Spawn deck Awakening Zone is gonna be really nice.

Worldwake Rares:
1 Lodestone Golem
1 Talus Paladin
1 Jwari Shapeshifter
2 Strength of Tajuru

Worldwake Mythic Rares:
1 Omnath, Locus of Mana
1 Avenger of Zendicar (foil)

As you can see I did alot better with Worldwake boosters than I did with Rise of the Eldrazi. It makes sense though. Last week I bought a Rise of the Eldrazi Fat Pack and pulled Emrakul, The Aeon Thorns foil and non foil in 2 different boosters. I was pretty excited when I pulled a foil mythic rare, and after reading the card, I don't even know if I want to use him in anything. More than likely I will just sell him.

I apologize for not having a video of me opening up the boosters, my camera wigged out on me and just stopped. My phone did get some pictures and if you want I can show you the cards I got.

I was just at Walmart.

It was midnight. All I want to say is, FUCK THAT!!! National consumerism at it's best. Yeah I won't go there again on Black Friday. All I wanted to do is see what the crowd looked like and I could barely move.

On an unrelated note. Saturday, Meijer is having a sale on Trading Cards at 20% off. You can bet that I will be buying quite a few packs of Magic cards and recording myself opening them. Is there anything that you want to see me open? Ill make a poll and hopefully I can get some responses!

MtG Mondays

For the past few weeks I have been playing Magic: The Gathering on Mondays up at a restaurant called Tim Hortons. It was epic this time! Usually I don't do so hot since alot of people like to play RDW (Red Deck Wins). And since we play casual table top style, I can get creamed.

Well this time I had my semi decent vampire deck against two RDW decks. My partner on my team in the THB was using a rat deck with alot of sick control. The game went on for about 40 minutes because our opponents couldn't keep creatures out due to our creature control, and neither could our Vamps and Rats stay long because of just retarded burn spells. We were hitting them for about 4 a turn, and they were burning us for 3 a turn. one of the RDW pulled out a Wurmcoil Engine and really started to lay down the hurt. The last round we were at 1 life, and they were at 8. No more burn spells in their hands, and we had no more creature control cards. we attacked for 4 and it went through due to a swampwalk combo I pulled. They took it, and we had a defender left. Their draw. They tap a mountain, and lightning bolt us! We were so close to winning and it was almost our victory.  Then the next game I pulled out my elf deck and smashed them into the ground with an assault of 75 damage. That made me feel better.
