Meeting begins
    Nifty links.
    Topic : Ringwraiths/Nazgul are a real oddity as far as what they must do to interact with the material world. How do they do it?
    Ar-Pharazon: more gaming news including flashgaming reviews.

Varda Valar (VardaValar1) has entered the room.
ElladanV has entered the room.
Varda Valar: Aiya :-)
ElladanV: aiya
arpharazonv has been invited.
ArPharazon-V (ArPharazonV) has entered the room.
ArPharazon-V: Aiya!
Varda Valar: You made it!
ArPharazon-V: I did!
ArPharazon-V: That invite worked.
Varda Valar: We were experimenting with different types of AIM/Trillian to see if we could get us all in here.
Arien V (AriehnV) has entered the room.
Varda Valar: It seemed to perhaps have a lag? The Group Chat showed that time.
Varda Valar: Aiya Arien :-)
Arien V: aiya all :-)
ArPharazon-V: Aiya
Varda Valar: Elladan is watching the fights right now, but helped us with the experiment anyway, thanks for when you get back!
ArPharazon-V: A war going on?
Varda Valar: TV :-)
Varda Valar: There's always a war somewhere, so probably.
ArPharazon-V: Which sport?
Arien V: what fights ?
Varda Valar: He didn't say
ArPharazon-V: Ah.
gwaihirvalar has been invited.
Arien V: boxing maybe ? or fencing ? or wrestling or kickboxing?
thesirg3 has been invited.
Varda Valar: Could be Robot Wars for all I know. :-)
ArPharazon-V: Could be a Bruce Lee movie.
Arien V: hehe ^^
Varda Valar: Ok, all invites sent that I can do. Probably need to update the buddy list.
ElladanV: UFC
ElladanV: Junior Dos Santos vs. Ben Rothwell
ElladanV: last round starting now
ElladanV: brb
Varda Valar: Happy watching!
ArPharazon-V: UFC sounds familiar.
ArPharazon-V: "The Ultimate Fighting Championship is an American mixed martial arts promotion company."
ArPharazon-V: Mixed martial arts. Right
Varda Valar: Your Bruce Lee wasn't far off!
Varda Valar: Phar is in Trillian and managed to make it in.
Varda Valar: What did you have to do to make it work that time?
Arien V: kickboxing not far off either ^^
ArPharazon-V: Trillian seems to work fine, but invite didn't work for the previous session because apparently my AIM invite was still there too or something.
Varda Valar: Aye to that!
ArPharazon-V: Next time I should just start with Trillian after checking AIM myself.
Varda Valar: So, crossing the streams.
ArPharazon-V: Perhaps.
Varda Valar: (Yes, that was Ghostbusters.)
ArPharazon-V: Noted ;)
Varda Valar: Here we go!

Varda Valar: Elen sila lumenn' omentielvo!
Varda Valar: Membership:
Varda Valar: Healthy here. Hello from Sauron and Fangorn. :-)   Bilbo's not home.
ArPharazon-V: Aiya!
Varda Valar: No one was in LotRO, rather unusual. I suspect some are on the Bullroarer test server so we can't see them on the Landroval server, or they are playing Creeps.
Varda Valar: Freeps can't see Creeps. Only way to make it work.
ArPharazon-V: Better to be creepy in-game than in life.
Varda Valar: Orcs, wargs, spiders, yep. Pretty creepy. :-)
ElladanV: alright!
Varda Valar: Lots of folks have been coming by in LotRO, but I don't keep a list for the meeting. Should I? :-)
Varda Valar: Good stuff, Elladan?
ArPharazon-V: Maybe if they're irregular?
ElladanV: no, one sided
ArPharazon-V: Or maybe if they *are* regular they deserve to be acknowledged!
Varda Valar: heh
Varda Valar: Well, I sometimes ask if you guys have seen Valarites in your games, so it might be fair, but it's more to make sure to keep them on the Membership list.
ElladanV: been playing Marvel Heroes. Not so much here haha
Varda Valar: So has Bilbo. :-)
Varda Valar: I was eyeing it as a maybe to play.
ArPharazon-V: Fladrif's been seen around on bnet. Mostly Hearthstone I think.
Varda Valar: Hiya Flad!
Varda Valar: Still playing Chess?
ArPharazon-V: Don't know, I could check if he's online right now :) I think he has, though.
Varda Valar: Marvel Heroes looked fun, if only because I like the Marvel universe.
ArPharazon-V: *is.
Varda Valar: He's welcome here even lurking. :-)
Varda Valar: I could wait a sec before sharing the web stuff if you're calling Fladrif in.
ArPharazon-V: Well I'm not sure if he's installed AIM yet. But judging from our efforts over the past week that doesn't have to take long.
ArPharazon-V: Nope, he's not online.
Varda Valar: Ok, thanks for checking. :-)

Varda Valar: Web:
Varda Valar: Not sure if this one has been shared before, but here you go:
Varda Valar:
Varda Valar: Food in The Hobbit.
Varda Valar: Not sure you can see this next link, let me know. It's a sneak preview of the work in progress by DeepGroover-(T) on Conan:
Varda Valar:
ArPharazon-V: "The link you followed may have expired, or the Page may only be visible to an audience that you aren't in."
Varda Valar: oboy
Varda Valar: Ok, guess you're stuck with waiting for the works in progress until they come out on our website.
Varda Valar: His comment: Shaded legs tonight, and painted the scars and veins. Added semi-gloss to his fingernails and jewels around the sword handle. Next is the boots, so he won't look like a go-go dancer.
ArPharazon-V: Sounds like very fine detail. How big is this thing?
Varda Valar: Anyone else have a fun link you'd like to share or a work in progress of your own?
Varda Valar: Not very big.
Arien V: interesting ^^#
Varda Valar: Checking to see if he mentions the size down the page.
Varda Valar: found it
Varda Valar: 13.5 inches without the base.
ArPharazon-V: *mentally converts inches to centimeters*
Varda Valar: Here's an idea that might or might not ever happen. What do you think of a sort of stick figure Tolkien comic on our site? Not sure if I can figure how to do it, but could be fun.
ArPharazon-V: Just over 30? Okay, that sounds decent.
Varda Valar: For DeepGroover, that's one of his big ones. He's going to run out of room again. Now and then he gives them to good homes that will appreciate them.
Arien V: oh thats about 27 cm phari? around that?
ArPharazon-V: It sounds pretty good. I recall having a similar idea myself, but instead wanting to do stick-figure images of notable moments from the books.
ArPharazon-V: 34, apparently, Arien.
Arien V: ah all right
Varda Valar: That would be fun. Could put them in a spot for you in our art site. :-)
Varda Valar: A lot of the moments when done as stick figures could be played for funny, maybe.
ArPharazon-V: I'm still at a point where I have a ton of projects and ambitions and not enough time to spread them around in, but if I ever get around to it, sure :) That being said, let it not stop you from doing a comic of your own!
Varda Valar: It could be updated maybe once a month.
Varda Valar: Not sure it's worth the time that it would take, but could be fun.
ArPharazon-V: Whatever frequency or deadline you're comfortable with, I suppose?
Varda Valar: Once a year might be a bit slow though.
ArPharazon-V: Oh, I've read webcomics with a worse schedule... of course they never last very long that way.
Varda Valar: True.
Varda Valar: We could have input from various kinmates, make it a tad faster. Never happen, but could be fun.
ArPharazon-V: Hehe.
Varda Valar: Ok, idea floated.
Varda Valar: People can get back to me if they have a thought. Could be noooo!
ArPharazon-V: What would the comic be about? An adaptation of Tolkien's works? A fanfiction? Or based on guild-members instead?
Varda Valar: Any other nifty web stuff y'all want to share?
Varda Valar: Just fun stuff. I was coming up with some funnies for nazgul life.
Arien V: no its okay i ve got nothing ^^
Varda Valar: Okie dokie
ArPharazon-V: I'll add that a webcomic I mentioned several times before in the past, Homestuck, really big and really popular, has recently started the last batch of updates (after some months of hiatus) and is ready to complete with a blast during the next week. So if you're interested, check it out!
Varda Valar: Cool. Have the url handy?
ArPharazon-V: leads to the first page.
ArPharazon-V: Amazing, really, how much the art has come along, and that's not even mentioning the mini-games, cinematics and music :) The latest cinematic was 18 minutes!
Varda Valar: Wow. And thank you. I remember reading that one for a while, some strange things in it that weren't the usual comic book format.
ArPharazon-V: Yep.
Varda Valar: Okkk - not digging into it for the new stuff right now. Later, little reaching fingers.
ArPharazon-V: I'm going to miss this one when it's gone - but I'm definitely getting the videogame he's currently making that's based on it.
ArPharazon-V: hehe
ElladanV: what game?
ElladanV: I want to see Camelot Unchained
Varda Valar: He's been heading towards a game with that comic for a while now, seems.
ArPharazon-V: Yes, it's been a while in the make.
Varda Valar: Surprisingly strong coloring and shading.
Varda Valar: Thank you. That could go under gaming too. :-)

Varda Valar:
Varda Valar: LotRO:
ArPharazon-V: Seems like a good transition :)
Varda Valar: :-)
Varda Valar: We are getting ready for the soon to come update where we go to level 105, trying to get our traits and quests all done for our level 100's.
Varda Valar: and legendary items.
ArPharazon-V: When's the update?
Varda Valar: When it's ready. Could be next week, quite likely, as soon as Tuesday some say.
Varda Valar: It's been in testing on Bullroarer, so we know it's near.
ArPharazon-V: That's pretty soon!
Varda Valar:
Varda Valar: Found it. Frelorn posted: We had originally scheduled Update 18 to go live on this upcoming Monday April 11th. After finding a few things we wanted to tweak as the team was doing the final QA pass, we are delaying the update by one day. Update 18 will be going live on Tuesday April 12th. We feel the is was the best course of action and allows us to put out a better update. Thanks for your understanding, and we will see you all in-game.
Varda Valar:
Varda Valar: Rather they roll it out in the best shape they can manage, so the delay is fine with me.
Varda Valar: Elladan popped into LotRO this last week - hey, you were noticed.
ArPharazon-V: :)
Varda Valar: Any other LotRO news?
Arien V: nope
Arien V: sorry *blush*
Varda Valar: No worries. :-)

Varda Valar: World of WarCraft:
Varda Valar: Check out what's going on with the Legion Alpha Test.
Varda Valar:

Varda Valar: Diablo 3:
Varda Valar: Check out the recent updates to the PTR patch notes.
Varda Valar:

Varda Valar: StarCraft 2:
Varda Valar: New patch 3.2.1. There's been some improvements made to patching in 3.2, so check those out as well.

ArPharazon-V: (Diablo 3: current season ends in 5 days or so!)
Varda Valar: Thanks, Phar. :-)

Varda Valar: Hearthstone:
Varda Valar: A new blog is out: Whispers of the Old Gods – It's Never a Yawn with Yogg-Saron.
Varda Valar: There's been a revamp to Tavern Heroes for the spring season.

Varda Valar: Heroes of the Storm:
Varda Valar: Coming April 19th for those who pre-purchased Overwatch Origins Edition is Tracer.
Varda Valar: Everyone else can purchase her starting April 29th. See the blog for more info.

Varda Valar: Overwatch:
Varda Valar: The animated short, Alive, is out.
Varda Valar: A new blog is out: Overwatch Beta: Competitive Play Preview.

Varda Valar: That's all from me and from Eonwe. Any other general gaming news?

Varda Valar: Tolkien:
Varda Valar: Ringwraiths/Nazgul are a real oddity as far as what they must do to interact with the material world. How do they do it?
Varda Valar: The barrow-wights were Maiar (spirits that worked for Morgoth and Sauron) that animated dead bodies that weer conveniently lying around embalmed in the barrows.
ArPharazon-V: They seem to be able to interact with their armor well enough. Might be special armor, but it might also mean that just because they're invisible, of a sort, doesn't mean they're intangible.
Varda Valar: That made it possible to pick up swords and do other material actions.
Varda Valar: Aye
ArPharazon-V: If I recall, Eowyn's sword did the trick quite handily. As did Merry's.
Varda Valar: Aye, when the Witch-king was somewhat embodied. However that was done.
Varda Valar: Merry's sword was a special made by elves of Gondolin, with runes.
Varda Valar: But what about Eowyn's sword?
Varda Valar: Hers may have worked because she was a woman, so that was the magic element that went with the prophecy?
Varda Valar: Merry also was no Man, but a variant, a Hobbit.
ArPharazon-V: Men's weapons passing through him? That's one way to interpret the prophecy.
Varda Valar: Possibly.
ArPharazon-V: I just thought it meant they were never fated to defeat him in battle.
Varda Valar: That could also be it.
Varda Valar: Aragorn didn't try to hit them with a sword but came at the Ringwraiths with fire.
Varda Valar: That was at Weathertop.
ArPharazon-V: They might have simply feared it more. Shadow fears the light :)
Varda Valar: But they did try swords at the Ford of Bruinen, other physical weapons. But they may have been shying back from Glorfindel's brilliant fea / spirit.
Varda Valar: In a number of myths, fire exists on both the material and non-material planes.
ArPharazon-V: The prophecy only applied to one of the nine, didn't it?
ArPharazon-V: And that is true.
Varda Valar: Running water in a number of myths is also a problem for ghost types, that they are afraid to cross.
Varda Valar: Glorfindel's presence to push the Nine into the water may have been a part of why he was sent back physically to Middle-earth. (As mentioned last Sunday.)
Varda Valar: When the Nazgul were sent back to Sauron, he would re-embody them to send out again, maybe with their special items for interaction.
Varda Valar: They had robes in the material world, although their armor could be seen on the wraith side.
ArPharazon-V: That is a good point.
Varda Valar: If the robes were burned, they might not be able to be physical.
Varda Valar: The nazgul on a flying beast that was shot down by Legolas was an interesting case.
ArPharazon-V: Wasn't Glorfindel around for Angmar's war? Wasn't he the one with the prophecy in the first place? Glorfindel might have been sent back to deal with the Nazgul in a general matter.
Varda Valar: Aye.
Varda Valar: Why would he not have been chosen for the Fellowship of the Ring?
ArPharazon-V: Too high-profile, perhaps. Nazgul might have sensed him more easily. Their relationship might have gone both ways.
Varda Valar: They were trying to stealthily enter Mordor and reach Mt. Doom. He would have shown up like a neon sign.
Varda Valar: Just as he shown brightly to the other side at the Ford of Bruinen.
Varda Valar: *shone
ArPharazon-V: That said, I'm a bit surprised he didn't show up with the Grey Company :)
Varda Valar: He might have frightened away the Dead that they needed to travel with?
ArPharazon-V: Good point.
Varda Valar: He may have been a very good aid at keeping the like of the barrow-wights away from Rivendell, even outside the Ring's protected area, keeping them from spotting Elrond's Ring.
Varda Valar: That could have been a major way to aid Elrond.
ArPharazon-V: His first-hand experience with death might have given him an advantage in dealing with undead of any kind.
ArPharazon-V: I can't imagine how, but it might!
Varda Valar: Maybe so, just by having had dealings with Namo and being in Mandos. Maybe it leaves a touch.
Varda Valar: Maybe Namo left his mark on purpose for Glorfindel.
ArPharazon-V: Possibly!
Varda Valar: The Nazgul whose flying fell beast was shot down by Legolas didn't stick around.
Varda Valar: He went back to Sauron.
ArPharazon-V: Might have lost his armor too, like he did at the Ford.
ArPharazon-V: "You need another cloak? What do you keep doing with them?"
Varda Valar: They used robes materially so those are easier to lose. And he was shot down over a river.
Varda Valar: hehe
Varda Valar: The robes may have special qualities. Otherwise why not commandeer an outfit from the orcs or take one from a victim?
Varda Valar: Not just any clothing may have worked to stay on them to let them interact.
Arien V: the Elves found the garments i believe after the bruinen Ford
Varda Valar: Aye, and the dead horses.
Arien V: yup
Varda Valar: So they had no way to travel or interact.
ArPharazon-V: How would they get home? Fly through the ether?
Varda Valar: Not just any horse was able to let a Nazgul ride. They were too terrified.
Varda Valar: Aye, flying home as ghosts.
ArPharazon-V: Just relax and let themselves be drawn back by the rings magnetically?
Varda Valar: That is highly likely. Sauron may have kept their Rings to draw them to him since he didn't have the One.
Varda Valar: You want your Rings back? Bring me the One. That could be an incentive.
ArPharazon-V: And then once he'd had the One, they'd still be bound to him anyway!
Varda Valar: Right. But at least they could have the Rings that they had given up everything for.
ArPharazon-V: Sounds about right.
Varda Valar: What would make a person take such a Ring? Remembering that Sauron would have been Annatar at the time.
ArPharazon-V: Power? Ambition? Promise of reward?
Varda Valar: Was it just that he could sell snow to residents of Forochel, he was so persuasive?
ArPharazon-V: As a servant of Morgoth he might know, like no other, what weaknesses there were to exploit.
Varda Valar: Aye. Rewards of never completely dying, having places to rule while they still had mortal bodies.
Varda Valar: They of course could rule better than other people, or at least have their way for that time.
ArPharazon-V: And might never suspect the addition they would grow into.
Varda Valar: True, Sauron could tell their weaknesses.
Varda Valar: Aye. Oh, and wait, there's more, as the ads say. :-)
Varda Valar: We hear in other places of people  that could read men's hearts or could sway them with a voice.
Varda Valar: Denethor and Faramir could read mens' hearts for two examples, treating the information quite differently.
Varda Valar: Saruman could sway with his voice, and may have given a touch of that to Grima vs Theoden.
ArPharazon-V: Sauron would've been particularly good at it, though he wouldn't know what to do with emotions and ambitions that were too positive for him to be familiar with.
Varda Valar: People like that weren't listening to him anyway and were in the minority. Not ones to hand a Ring to.
Varda Valar: But the ones that were susceptible he could probably play like a piano.
ArPharazon-V: Very crafty ;)
Varda Valar: More ways than one, aye. :-)
Varda Valar: *picks up a gavel from the moving conveyer belt*
Varda Valar: *taps it gently on the round table around which we were sitting today*
Varda Valar: *fwoooosh! Flowers everywhere! Air, table, ground*

Varda Valar: After-meeting!
ArPharazon-V: Fancy.
ArPharazon-V: Must be spring.
ArPharazon-V: One of Yavanna's?
Varda Valar: *carefully returns the springy hammer*
Varda Valar: Right. :-)
Varda Valar: Happy springtime everyone!
Varda Valar: Feel free to chat about anything, tell personal gaming news, and much on the chips by the flowerbowls.
ArPharazon-V: *throws up a bunch of metal springs* spring is in the air!
Varda Valar: *wheeee!*
Arien V: hearts speak in Tolkien anyway eh?
ArPharazon-V: Hm?
Arien V: very often we hear the expression "My heart tells me"
Varda Valar: awww
Varda Valar: Good one.
Arien V: it usually means a sense of foreboding, foresight , doesnt it?
ArPharazon-V: Paranoia, perhaps :)
Varda Valar: It doesn't have to be, but it is used for dramatic purposes a lot in Tolkien, so aye.
Varda Valar: It can mean listening to your heart for happy things too.
Varda Valar: Love, going along to do something crazy because it's good.
ArPharazon-V: When I listen to my heart, I hear a strange thumping...
Varda Valar: Maybe try using something besides a stethoscope?
ArPharazon-V: Anyway, time for some personal gaming!
Varda Valar: Hmm, looks as if the Ringwraiths section could use a little tidying in the webwork. Reminding myself.
Varda Valar:
Varda Valar: Okie dokie. :-)

ArPharazon-V: For this week, have 3 flashgames!
ArPharazon-V: is a game where you dig for gold, use it to upgrade your equipment, and build/expand a mining town. Can take a bit to get started, but might be fun if you like that kind of stuff!
ArPharazon-V: Note, though, from what I've seen in some of the comments, it's possible to run out of money for explosives and not being able to make more this way. So keep an eye on the minimum of gold you keep around.
ArPharazon-V: But having a town also helps with that.
ArPharazon-V: is the second game, a simple platformer where you play a bear, and have to run around collecting food, while avoiding your shadow that's chasing you and also other dangers that pop up as you go along. Try to last longer for more points!
ArPharazon-V: And then there's another episode in a point-and-click series I've mentioned recently, this one about a pirate who goes after a lost treasure in a ruined fort.

ArPharazon-V: now, blizzard games!
ArPharazon-V: Heroes of the Storm: Nothing much new. Levelling the same old heroes a bit more, doing some quests. Will be a while before I get any of them to level 10.
ArPharazon-V: Hearthstone: The Mage Portal tavern brawl's back this week, where you pick a class and get some class cards and a whole bunch of portals for random minions. Should be doable with any class, but I had some luck with the hunter.
ArPharazon-V: Slowly working all the classes up again.
ArPharazon-V: Diablo 3: I'm not going to make the wanted chapter 8 of the season journey before the season ends in a few days, but that's fine. I've been slacking the last few weeks, and the end-game is a bit boring. I'll get some more hours in early in the next season, and have a better shot. Maybe it'll even be easier to get the stash space this time, we'll see.
ArPharazon-V: I still need to complete a rift and a greater rift to finish chapter 6, which requires 3 more gem-upgrades. I should be able to fit that in before friday. Not today though, gotta get up a bit earlier tomorrow :)
ArPharazon-V: WoW:
ArPharazon-V: Finished all my quests from the inn, completing all 20 over the last few weeks. Got a new pet in the process, a sort of spectral owl called the Sentinel's Companion, which is based on the Sentinel ability in Warcraft 3. It's really nice, and I'll keep it around for a while :0
ArPharazon-V: *:)
ArPharazon-V: Huh, strange emotes in Trillian. I wanted to make it a :)
ArPharazon-V: Anyway!
ArPharazon-V: I also finished up my blueprint collection by buying all the remaining profession building levels 2 and 3, thereby also completing the last 2 garrison building achievements I had left.
ArPharazon-V: So that's another project complete.
ArPharazon-V: What else...
ArPharazon-V: Been doing more archeology, getting some pristine artefacts, and have started the last missing rare artefact from this expansion, the ghostwolf pup.
ArPharazon-V: Oh, mustn't forget!
ArPharazon-V: Darkmoon Faire was this week, and I got the last 5 victories in the darkmoon arena I needed to get the master trinket and the heirloom, putting me at 86 out of 87 heirlooms and completing my business in the Faire for now.
ArPharazon-V: The 87th heirloom is the horde pvp trinket, which can only be gotten by a horde character.
ArPharazon-V: With that and other horde-only items in mind, I finally did the unthinkable:
ArPharazon-V: I started levelling a horde character.
ElladanV: Going to eat and watch tv til sleep time :) Namarie you guys <3
ArPharazon-V: I had no room on Argent Dawn, so went to another server, where other people I know on Argent Dawn have also stashed a few characters in a small horde guild.
ArPharazon-V: Namarie!
ElladanV (scott92027) has left the room.
Varda Valar: Namarie Elladan belatedly
ArPharazon-V: So I joined that guild to have someone to talk to while I'm levelling my new hordy, who I modelled after my druid main on alliance, but with the spec I've always wanted to try but never quite made it to a higher priority than my guardian/feral specs: Balance, with moonkin form. So now I've got a troll moonkin in the make!
ArPharazon-V: He's level 7 right now, but the troll starting story is fun, and I'm looking forward to seeing him to 100 as a moonkin.
Arien V: ^^
ArPharazon-V: And because I based him on my night elf druid, I also gave him a blue-purple-ish skin and green hair :) Truly meant to be a sort of shadow of my main.
Arien V: its great fun yes :-)
Arien V: whats his name again?
ArPharazon-V: Oh yes! The new Cataclysm starting story brings back the very first villain from Warcraft 3, the sea witch from the prologue, which was a fun surprise to see.
Arien V: Zulcal or Caljin?
ArPharazon-V: I named him Calkin, because he's supposed to be a moonkin version of Calaron.
ArPharazon-V: Calkin is also the nickname I gave to Calaron when I tested out balance in Cataclysm.
Arien V: ah yes ^^  of course ^^  , nice one
ArPharazon-V: Beware the Calkin :)
Varda Valar: eek
Varda Valar: Might be a catkin.
ArPharazon-V: So while he's not "canon" in my own lore, he's just a way of expressing my moonkin desires in a way that also fills up some gaps when it comes to items and achievements I want from the game, which are simply not available to someone who just plays alliance.
Varda Valar: Ok, cleaned up the Ringwraith pages a bit.
Varda Valar: So he's a dream that Calaron had?
ArPharazon-V: I did imagine it as a dreamworld, yes, or perhaps some parallel universe after a teleporting accident or something ;)
ArPharazon-V: In as far as he is "real", he is certainly supposed to be an extension of Calaron.
ArPharazon-V: Oh, and lastly I'll mention that with me having so many heirlooms (86 out of 87) I was able to give him heirlooms for every possible slot, making him decently overpowered for any level he'll be at until he maxes out. He started level 1 at 60% crit chance, for example, and at level 7 that has gone up to over 88%. It's quite ridiculous :0
ArPharazon-V: * :)
ArPharazon-V: So if you're going to raise up an alt, collecting heirlooms for it is definitely worth the effort.
Arien V: uh .. slipped into the emerald nightmare and was hauled out by a corrupted dreamdwafgon and ended in nightmare form on a lonely island with tusked monsters ;O?
Varda Valar: Oops.
ArPharazon-V: Haha, perhaps!
ArPharazon-V: A recurring dream for Calaron that continues whenever he sleeps is the most fitting option so far, I think.
ArPharazon-V: I might write that up as a story :)
Arien V: :-)
Arien V: i shall look forward to that :-D
ArPharazon-V: Hmm.. I shall finish my report with saying that on top of getting other people in my raidgroup their last achievements for the infernal direwolf from Hellfire Citadel, we've also done some mythic bossfights in Blackrock Foundry, so that achievement is also slowly coming along. If I get all of them there, I'll have a new monument for my garrison!
