The grove is pretty quiet lately...I miss you guys!

11-25-2009, 08:26 AM
yep it has been Des.

we also need more visitors/contributors to your blog as well ! :)

11-30-2009, 02:34 PM
I've tried convincing others to send me stories...but no one ever wants to /shrug

My husband wrote one entry about Gretta and her refusal to give him a polar bear mount (which he has since gotten - so grats to him lol). But that's about it. Maybe I should start threatening more friends?

btw: Lovely Black Dress story has been rerun =D Still haunting me......

12-02-2009, 12:33 PM
by contributors i meant people posting on your stuff like i do !

i am all alone posting !

12-03-2009, 09:33 AM
I know =( I can't convince anyone else to leave comments. I know there are others that read it. They talk to me about it either in-game or on instant messenger- but refuse to leave comments. /cry

12-03-2009, 02:11 PM
are they that shy !

LOL Teddie,

Check out some of my original posts, you will see that isn't necessary.

I also agree with Magellan. Teddie, one of the greatest things about this grove is just the huge sense of family here. When I first stumbled onto the grove, I was clueless on druiding. I've asked probably hundreds of really "noobie" questions, but never have gotten anything but gentle and awesome guidance here.

And, you really wouldn't need to know much about druiding to comment on my blog. I mean, one of the most recent entries was about how much I love Arthas. I believe Khel is now convinced that I'm 100% out of my mind... I can't help it...he's Arthas!!!

It's easy to make friends here, for sure =) Even the bears are friendly =D /rawr

By the way, the new heroic is FUN!!!!! Lots of AoE damage it seems, but the two boss fights I got to see last night were really cool! I was sad that the other instance servers were down. It would have been really cool to see more!

12-09-2009, 05:26 PM
yeah Des has been here a while and most of her questions are still 'noob' ones Teddie :grin: :grin:

yes i am convinced Des is off her trolley !

yeah the new 5 man place looks kewl. just done all 3 parts on normal.

some good looking loot, ok only 219 but nice looking items. lots of eot and eof.

and yeah none of my addons were working but some nice big pack pulls so i am hoping my dps will see a nice increase with aoe :)

12-10-2009, 02:49 PM
I agree with Teddie, as I only have a druid in the low 60's I don't want to say something :bonk:

Des, what's the link to your blog? I thought it was in your sig, but it's not :grin:

12-11-2009, 08:18 AM
Hey guys, it has been a long time since i posted here, so probably no one remembers me :) I haven't been playing for a while, and playing actively for even a longer time :(
Well, anyway, I just wanted to say that i miss the grove, and i hope more people come to contribute to this peaceful community, which is by far the best wow related forum around :)

12-11-2009, 02:47 PM
Amen, Aral! It's good to see you stopping by to say hello =)

Smart, it's at Little Bear Tree (

It really only got started because Khel <3's how noobish I am, and my failures seem to be a good source of giggles for him =)

I don't mind. It's actually been kind of cool to keep a blog about WoW. I know it seems kind of dumb. It seemed dumb to me at first too, but sometimes I go back and read some of them again and think, "Wow...hehe I can't believe I even did that..."

A story that's not posted yet, but I'll hopefully get posted soon: The story about when we decided to go for the achievement on Anomalus and the one guildie says, "Des, kite him backwards down the path..." so I did...and off the platform I went. hehe Needless to say, no achievement for that run. The best part? It happened just a month or two ago. Moral of the story: Environmental Awareness is very important, especially for tanks =)

As Aral said, this is by far the friendliest and kindest of wow forums out there, so don't be afraid to post or ask questions. I mean, ask Khel- I still ask questions and post stuff that probably leaves fellow grove members scratching their heads wondering how on earth I even got to 80...but I've learned a LOT from the druids here doing so. =)

12-14-2009, 12:40 PM
Des - i reckon your failures could be a good source of giggles for lots more than only me ;)

yeah some good stuff on it Des :)

hehe Des, we all ask questions no doubt that to others seem soo easy. its why its such a great source of info and help here in the grove :)

12-14-2009, 01:02 PM
Agreed Khel.

I'm sure my failbits make for giggles for a lot of folks. I know the guildies get a kick out of my random stories in /gchat. It usually starts with..." guess what I just did..."

Then they usually just wait to see what story unfolds for them lol.

Edit: I just found out that they've killed the project for Cartographer. Now, it's not a huge issue with the new quest objectives map...however...there is one feature from cartographer that Des does NOT function well without...

When using Cartographer, I was able to see parts of the map that I hadn't yet explored or discovered. Are there other addons that would give that functionality? Only reason I ask is in one of the random pugs I was in, we wiped in Sunken Temple and I couldn't find my way back because that was the first time my warlock had ever been to that zone...ideas?

I'm sure my failbits make for giggles for a lot of folks. I know the guildies get a kick out of my random stories in /gchat.

Here's one for ya:

Was flying high above Storm Peaks on my way to an Ulduar raid. I noticed that my mage enchanter friend was just below me at the bottom of the mountains headed to the same raid.

I whispered him to see if he would enchant something and he said "sure".

I said, "Don't move, I'm just above you. I'll freefall until I get to ya."

I started the freefall, and being so high in the air, I decided I time to prepare my headset for vent. Got the headset tangled in my hair (which hurt A LOT) and remembered my poor freefalling character just in time to watch her SPLAT right next to my mage friend.

He whispered, "LOL! Is that you?!?"

I was laughing hysterically, and begged him not to mention it to the raid.

He assured me it would be our little secret.

I finally got the headset untangled from my hair, logged into vent and immediately:

"Mags! First day as a bird?"
"Mags! How's your face?"
"Mags! Fly much?"
"Mags! Should I throw you a net? Maybe a pillow?"


I thanked the Mage for his discretion, and joined in on the fun.


12-18-2009, 04:03 PM
Awwwww *giggle*

Speaking of mages and falling...we were going to run H:HoL the one night- a few of us guildies. The mage was on his way to the summon stone - I was flying around picking a few herbs.

When he got to the summon stone, he whispered me to tell me he was there and ready to summon. I get to the stone and don't see him anywhere. I ask where he is, he says "Omw down"

Plunk! There plops the mage right before me at the stone! He ice blocked so he didn't take any fall damage.

Made me giggle. We summon everyone and head into the instance. When we got done he says, "Des, don't take the portal, we'll walk out."

I listened to him and we get outside. He says, "Fly up with me, and then just drop. I'll ice-block you."

I, knowing nothing about mage's abilities at the time, did exactly that and splattered in the center of a group of horde and fellow allies.

There were only a few jokes made in /g about how gullible I am.

Moral of both stories: Don't trust mages. Ever.

Just happy I'm not alone in the "falling to death" achievement.

Also, I've been posting on a warlock forum- The Warlock's Den. Just casually discussing the specs available and leveling and stuff. That forum is very different from our grove. Here, everyone is warm and cozy- bears snuggling with boomkins, trees cuddling with kitties...Over's "You'll know when you're a true warlock when you look at your friends only as souls that you can shard to use to summon your demons later". =O


12-22-2009, 12:38 PM

12-22-2009, 02:29 PM

It's a true story, though. And my story to them was:

"Let me see if I'm a true warlock.

I went into Warsong Gulch. I beat the snot out of a Blood Elf Warlock- and drained his soul. I put that soul shard in the bank as a trophy, and was extremely and infinitely excited to have a blood elf soul. Am I a true warlock yet?"

I got a resounding "Welcome to the dark side, warlock!" hehe

Oh oh, and I've posted Des's Christmas Wish list on LBT ( I can get some stories from friends to post up there in a sort of "summing up the year" compilation. If you want to throw a story (even with instructions to change names etc)- my email is

Really hoping I can get a few stories in the old Inbox to put together for my 2009 wrap-up.

12-22-2009, 04:00 PM
never tried a lock as i've never tried most classes.

yeah i posted on your Xmas Wish List earlier.

trouble is i dont have exciting or n00b stories like you do ! :p

i dont get to play enough tbh and when i do its with guildies and friends.....which is why i detest this random dungeon cr4p and the change to the daily heroic.

12-23-2009, 08:57 AM
It wouldn't have to be a noob story, just any wow story- successes, failures, things you learned...anything.

I'm not expecting much, given the holidays are pressing down on us all and I doubt any of us will have time. I should write a post about what I learned in Blade's Edge last night...evidently, if the felcannons hit you while you're in swift flight form (even at level 80), it knocks you OUT of flight form...if you're up high die. Who knew?

Just learned this. The hard way.

12-23-2009, 05:28 PM
i knew !

12-29-2009, 10:55 AM
Oh hey....Khel...

Gonna have to ask you to address me as...


Posted on LBT this morning. hehe Thank goodness it's FINALLY over!

Woot! Grats!

01-04-2010, 09:28 AM
Thanks =)

Glad it's over with.

Next Mission: Getting the Death Knoob to 80. I got her from 71 to 76 over vacation, leveled her blacksmithing and mining...=) super exciting!

Is it bad that I find it amusing that the weekend's guild drama has carried over onto facebook? I was both saddened and amused by this at the same time...

01-07-2010, 11:40 AM
grtz Des !

i did see it on lbt the other day.

busy week cos its Pantomime week.

01-13-2010, 11:55 AM
I'm jealous of pantomime week now that I read more about it. We don't have cool stuff like that here in the states =(

01-16-2010, 04:59 AM
hehe yeah pantomime is fun.

something that adults and kids can both enjoy.

some of the jokes etc are aimed at adults whcih they find funny whilst the kids dont understand so its not a problem.

01-18-2010, 12:12 PM
hehe European humor...=)

<3 Khel

01-20-2010, 03:03 AM
actually its probably English humour !


01-20-2010, 11:37 AM
Mm that too, but I've heard Pantomime remains at least somewhat popular in other European well as Australia to some degree. Of course, that's based on reading up on it after you talked about it on facebook- and all the info was from web sources- so who knows how up-to-date or accurate it is lol

<3 English humor. My father used to force me to watch Benny Hill with him all the time...

01-21-2010, 03:55 AM
lol Benny Hill !

and he drove the fastest milk cart in the west.......

01-21-2010, 09:14 AM

I saw his show on tv not too long ago. My husband thought I was positively insane because I was SO excited and made him watch it with me. He wouldn't have laughed except for how excited I was. It was great =D I never understood the humor when I was a little girl, but I remember sitting there next to my dad when he watched it and he would chuckle, so I would laugh too.

I always remembered him running around to his crazy kinda miss Benny Hill now...

01-23-2010, 03:00 PM
hehe good old british humour he was.

way before all this PC cr4p came in.

same as the likes of Alf Garnett.

01-26-2010, 08:51 AM
I'm not familiar with Alf Garnett I don't think...My dad was addicted to the BBC America channel for the longest time, so I imagine I've probably been exposed to his work at some point or another.

Any other comedy acts, American or Otherwise, that I should look into guys?

01-28-2010, 02:06 PM
Alf Garnet was in as well a much older sit com.

Very non PC !

cant say i am into comedy acts/comedians. mainly sit coms.

01-28-2010, 02:35 PM
lol I'll have to look it up.

04-19-2010, 11:18 AM
*taps on various trees, moonkins, kitties and bears...* Anyone alive out there?

I still check in from time to time, but haven't had much to say lately, as - I hate to say it - I've been focused more on my holy pally than druid.

Slogging our way through ICC10 normals, got the Blood Princes, Blood Queen Lana'thel, and Valithria Dreamwalker all down in the last two weeks. Just Sindragosa and the LK to go, then we do it again for hard modes.

04-19-2010, 05:23 PM
I too check in, but I just dinged 70, so not much I can add. I am hoping that now that I have got past a big deadline at work I can work more on my druid :wavey:

04-21-2010, 11:26 AM
K just checking =) I stop in from time to time and rarely see any new posts...just wanted to make sure all of my fellow grovers were faring well.

05-03-2010, 11:47 AM
you have a blog?

05-03-2010, 02:17 PM
Yes, Des has a wonderful blog here ( ... makes me smile.

05-04-2010, 09:12 AM
Oh my gosh! People actually read it? =O

I've been kind of just posting random things lately. I haven't had the time to dedicate to well thought out posts...Although...I learned a valuable lesson about WHY I need pvp gear to do pvp...turns out mages can one-shot me in my current resto gear...=( jerks...
