So I’ve been back into WOW for a couple weeks now and I finally finished making my Stormshroud armor set. When I quit playing a few months ago I had just started it. Elemental leatherworking is a real bitch. The ingredients you need are either very rare or extremely expensive. I also needed help from high level alchemists to help me transmute materials. All in all it was quite an accomplishment to gather all the materials and patterns and get this armor made. The shitty thing is that when I left the game all those months ago the Stormshroud armor was one of the best sets a Rogue could get. Now that I’ve finally finished it I see all the high level rogues wearing the “invisible fucking murderer” armor set or whatever it is.
All the best sets for Rogues now appear to be drops which is fine I guess. I think it would be cool if there were player crafted epic sets as well. I’m not the sort of person who’s going to run through some high level instance fifty times so I can get a pair of boots. However I am the sort of person who will kill Toxic Horrors in Felwood for five hours to acquire the three essence of waters I need to make a new belt. So you figure that one out.
So father’s day is this weekend and it’s going to be my very first one. Kara has already told me that my gift this year is the gift of golf. She told me to spend the day playing golf with my friends which I am very excited about. I don’t get the opportunity to play much anymore so this weekend is going to be a real treat.
About the only thing my dad and I could agree on while I was growing up was that golf was awesome. If he told me the sky was blue I would have said it was orange. We had that sort of relationship. But golf was the one thing we could do together and have a good time. So a few years back I started a comic strip just for my dad called Bogey Golf. It’s a comic that I draw for him on special occasions. Just like Penny Arcade wouldn’t make sense to anyone who doesn’t play games, Bogey Golf isn’t for anyone who doesn’t play golf. This year for father’s day I made him another strip and I thought I’d share it with you guys and probably him since he reads the page now. So I’m gonna drop this in the mail for you dad but you can see it here first. Happy Father’s day.
