Tonight at 6:50 pm, Mikros received an invitation from Blizzard to participate in the Wrath of the Lich King Beta.  Needless to say, mayhem and jubilation ensued =)  Ok, maybe there was a bit of disbelief mixed in… what can I say, it’s been a long and arduous journey.  I begged, I whined, I QQed a lot.  In the end, it came down to hard work, perseverance, and knowing the right people (programmers) to be accepted into the inner circle.

I have to say, I’m pretty surprised that we made it into this wave of invites.  Our submission was sent to Blizzard on Tuesday, so I really wasn’t expecting that we’d be included in the group that started going out today.  But I’m thankful!

The first think I did was upgrade my account and then start the bank shuffle.  All non-soulbound items were sent to the bank toons.  100+ stacks of herbs for Inscription testing were sent to the characters who will be going to the beta server.  Bank toons sent their extra cash to their mains.  Unfortunately I have five level 70s who should be testing professions, but only four character copy slots available.  I’m sad to say that my newest 70 toon (Tailor/Alchemist) will have to be left behind.  I also kicked off the beta client download, which is tracking to take about 2 hours to complete.  After that I fully expect to have patching as well.  This weekend should be quite busy for us at Crafter’s Tome, since I also have 140+ new items in my email box waiting to be posted, school just started yesterday, weekend house guests arrived today, and we have our youngest’s birthday in five days.

No rest for the weary!

    I am on Northrend – for those folks who are also in Beta :) Someone stole my Kaliope name (and Kalliope – the boogers), so I ended up as Kalioppe on my druid. My rogue is the same: Krystella. Feel free to add me to your Friends lists and say ‘Hi’ fellow testers!

    A BIG shout out to Tsukii on Northrend for sending me some free JC mats in the mail to welcome me into the Beta! You are awesome!!!

    Solid: Already got you covered, just took the training for Cooking and Fishing, did a Cooking quest in the Tundra and nabbed all the food goodies off the trainer. You should see those going online by Monday :)
