As you saw from my announcement post latelate last night (or earlyearly this morning), Syrana has reached level 80!  Sideshow had hit level 80 at least a good 15 minutes before I did because of his chilled meat and leather farming.  The ding occured in Storm Peaks again too!

We were having fun with the mighty Vrykul women disguises.  We looked absolutely ridiculous on our mounts.  I'm mean… just LOOK at us! lol

We're HUGE!
We're HUGE!

So that last level didn't seem to take very long.  Usually the last one seems to just drag and drag and drag.  I guess we'll have to see how quickly I finish it up on Aly now!

Funny thing is, Sideshow had made an offhand comment around the release of Wrath stating that he wasn't going to rush to 80 and would probably hit it by March.  We were by no means using any sort of time table, and managed to ding just a few hours into 2/28/09.  How's that for predictions?  Hmm, I didn't know Sideshow had been a fortune teller with the Darkmoon Faire…

So, now what?

The fun begins! Dailies, reputation, squeezin' out those last few points to max my professions, create my ebonweave set, create my frost resist set…. we've got work to do!  And we definitely have gold to earn to recover from the hit we took on training costs! Ugh.

(I had wanted to do a bit of a fuller post upon the grand dingage, but was waaaay too tired when it happened last night otherwise you would have received something like this here post you just read.  Coming soon will be another look at the endangered population of ‘locks.)

  • Endangered?! Lenor scoffs at you! Just having been dusted off, she’s eagerly awaiting her own level 80 status. Deep into affliction she hit ’em with her best shot!…or curse…or uh…disease like thing…


    …it was shadowbolt XD

  • @Cait – Hurrah for another ‘lock! But we have to be careful, we really are endangered 🙁

  • @BoL – Thankyou, thankyou *curtsy* We dinged then went straight to bed hehe But we did get a chance to sneak into a heroic when we logged back in later in the day. We only downed one boss – hence the Emblem of Heroism achievement and nothing else. We’re getting there! 😀

  • Grats on dinging 80 to both of you! Thank you for helping me and I’m sure many others on this quest filled trip. *hugs*

  • @Keli – Thank you and you are welcome. But believe me, my quest filled trip has only begun! 😉


We are a family of gamers. Mom (Darcy/Syrana) and Dad (Brian/Sideshow) have been gaming for as long as they can remember back when you only had a joystick to use and saved your games to cassette tapes.

They've been gaming together since they met in 2002. Sometime after 2006, they both started playing World of Warcraft and did that for many years. They started this blog, originally called Sideshow & Syrana which has now transitioned to the new Stay-At-Home Gamers site, while keeping all of the original content.

Starting in 2010, two more gamers came along (now known as Princess Boo and Mr. X) and they are now old enough where they both enjoy playing games and watching others play games. They are both excited to have others to watch them play their favorite games. Come along with us and let's enjoy these games together!
