Aion...oh how I luvvies you...

Totally forgot I made one of these blog sites, and since I just remembered about it, I might as well scribble down some thoughts about a new MMO I'm playing called Aion. It just came out a few weeks ago, and all my friends from college are playing with me. Suffice it to say...I'm completely addicted (you already know this, Ryn XD) The game is totally pvp-centric, which I love, and it's not a huge grindfest like Lineage II was (I managed to grind my ass all the way up to lvl 73 before I decided I would switch to Aion after I played it in open beta).

There are two factions in the game who are at war with each other, the Elyos and Asmodians. People tend to think that the Asmodians are the "bad guys", but I think that both races think each other is the bad guy and they are fighting for control of a torn world. I am playing an Elyos who I've lvled up to 39 already lol, and I even started a week behind (I was in Omaha for a few days when the servers first went live). The game is just that good, and there is pvp aplenty on a daily basis. I look forward to seeing what the endgame has to offer, and of course, getting to the lvl cap of 50 so I can take part in major raids against enemy cities.

The graphics are gorgeous and I'd upload a pic of my character, Gilford, but I'm too lazy to figure out how to put pictures in these blog entries lulz.

Go away, eBay...

...go far far away...and quit tempting me to blow my paychecks on you. Everyday I feel the need to go on ebay and look to see if I can snipe any good deals. And I usually do find something for cheaper than someone would normally pay for it, so of course I keep coming back. My bank account slowly trickles away until payday when I stop feeling bad about myself for spending all that money and then the cycle repeats.

Finally got to the grocery store yesterday so I'm all stocked up on foods. Got lots of tasty fruits and veggies for my lunches this coming week, trying to not eat out as much. We'll see how that goes.

Current Standard Decklist

After discovering the Sligh deck a couple years ago, I've become a mono-red junkie. Lucky for me...Shadowmoor Block has some kick-ass burn spells :D

Here is my current T2 decklist:

18x Mountain
3x Ghitu Encampment

4x Mogg Fanatic
4x Figure of Destiny
4x Hellspark Elemental
4x Stigma Lasher
4x Ashenmoor Gouger
4x Boggart Ram-Gang

4x Magma Spray
4x Incinerate
4x Flame Javelin
3x Banefire

4x Vexing Shusher
4x Volcanic Fallout
4x Guttural Response
3x (Enchantment that prevents life gain and damage prevention)

Can't remember the name of that enchantment right now, but it's from Shadowmoor. This deck is so much fun to play and Banefire just laughs at those pesky Cryptics. I've recently found a new venue in town to play casual Magic and this deck has faired pretty well against the fellow competition!
