Absence may make the heart grow fonder, but it also makes a screenshot addict very rusty when it comes to capturing achievements. Yesterday I finally dinged 90 on my Night Elf Monk, making her my 4th level 90 (3rd as a Night Elf). I also got “Terrific Trio” because one of my 90’s is a dirty Horde toon. :P
Normally I would have taken the time to zoom in the camera and angle it just right so that the minute the achievement popped, I’d have a nice clear screenshot of the moment to share. But I have gotten so out of the habit of blogging that even though I knew the quest turn in would cause me to ding, I didn’t give a single thought about the screenshot. This crappy screenshot you see here is apparently what happens when I stop considering myself a blogger (multi-shot addon automatically captures achievements for me).
Thing is, immediately afterwards I wanted to tweet about the ding and when I dug through the folder to grab the achievement picture it made me sad to realize I hadn’t put any effort into it and didn’t have a great photo to share. I knew I needed to sit down, write a post and remember how much I used to enjoy rambling about every silly little thing that happened in Elfi’s world.
I have not yet used my free boost to 90. My plan is to use it on my Dwarf Shaman once she hits 60 to take advantage of maxxed out professions on her. Currently she’s at 55 & now that the Monk’s journey has been completed, I should have a few hours this week to spend running her through LFD to get her to 60 and boost her. I’ve made a promise to myself to be able to share good screenshots of this when it happens. We’ll see if I can be bothered to follow through.
