Let It Ride: And That’s How He Lost His Shirt

As I’ve mentioned before, the end of an expansion tends to lead to shenanigans–the boredom is real, and when the primary things that keep you logging in are raids and friends, there’s a lot of downtime.

In the downtime, we come up with things to do, like gambling. It turns out that there are quite a few of us in <Check Please> who are addictive personality types, willing to risk (for some of us) literally every gold we have on the chance of a big win against our guildies.

Last night, in a series of rolls that started while we waited for people to log in after the server crashed and carried on in the Shrine a good hour after raid, there were big winners and uh, well, big losers. A particular gnome warlock walked away with at least 400k more than he started with, a few of us were up by a decent amount, and then there were these two lovely gamblers:

Romfax & Blunders

 

Both of them lost at least 100k each (probably closer to 200k). Ouch! If you see a shirtless, practically pantless night elf begging in the Shrine, please have compassion. I’ve thrown gold away on some stupid stuff, but if I lose all my gold in a roll, that will officially be the stupidest. Thankfully, I ended last night ahead by 25k!

What have you lost gold on that made you/facepalm in retrospect, and how are you handling the end-of-expansion boredom?

 

Before the question comes up, gambling in-game is not against the ToS, but advertising or publicly running a game is–as we only do this privately within our raid group, it’s in the clear–except for all that gold we’re losing.¬†

Mists of Pandaria Compilation Album

It’s time again for the compilation album I make for my guild. While not all of it will make sense, I think there’s enough cross over in the boss mechanics from Siege that you guys can appreciate some of this!

And a bonus album!

This Week in WoW

I kept running into amusing things this week, and what good are amusing things unless you share them with someone else who can also be amused?!

Image

Amber-brew! I am always down to try something named after me… :-P

Image

My husband says I’m not allowed to name things. I don’t understand why.

Image

I was quite impressed with how good this statue of a Ordos Berserker came out…no, really, I made it. Sort of.

Image

We were happier about taking over the Orgrimmar bank than nearly anything else in the instance…WE HAVE PRIORITIES!

And 3 new bosses before our raid week is out is a pretty good week!

I hope 5.4 is treating you well!
