First of all, if you have a Twitter account and you are not following @Oceanrch or @ MaryLeeShark, get on that. Ocean Research is involved in tagging sharks of all sorts up and down the eastern seaboard so we learn more about these magnificent animals. It is thought there is a great white shark nursery off the coast of Long Island, New York, but no one has been able to fund even minimal research into this area. Ocean Research just got a Kickstarter funded to do just that. I have to say that following a great white is awesome. I really enjoy checking the Twitter feed to see where she has pinged lately. There are a lot of sharks with Twitter feeds now because it's clear, following sharks is cool. Oceanrch and MaryLee follow us back so I'm flattered.
Anyway, Discovery Channel's annual Shark Week starts this coming Sunday and we will be celebrating in our own inimitable style. First off, Sunday.
That's only part of my stable of aquatic pets. We're going to do an aquatic pet battle. You'll take your summons and battle on the beach. We'll start with level 1 teams and when everyone has battled everyone else, then move to other levels. I don't have a whole lot in the middle but we'll see what we can do. It will be fun and there will be prizes for everyone who comes.
Monday, we're heading into Orgrimmar and lining the road from Grommash Hold to the front gate with fish and seafood feasts. Why? Because. Next question. The fun begins at 9:00.
Tuesday we are going after whale sharks. We'll start in everyone's "favorite" place, Vash'ijr. We'll go after the shark. There is an achievement "From Hell's Heart I Stab at Thee", so you're welcome to bring a toon that doesn't have it.
From there, we're going to the Timeless Isle and killing that shark and ending up at the Iron Docks in Tanaan to kill that shark. I believe you need to have Timeless Isle and Tanaan opened in order to be summoned to those locations. If you need assistance in opening either, just ask in chat.
We'll do our regular mythic 5-mans on Wednesday followed by another Firelands run on Thursday. We have quite a few people working on the Legendary staff so please tag along and help.
On Friday, July 1st, we have a fantastic event planned. Called "Swimming With the Fishes", you'll take your summons, around 9 pm, and like it. You'll also need to have room in your bags for all your gear. You just have to be faster than the person behind you. We end Shark Week with a Throne of Thunder achievement run. Lots of water in that place.
Plenty of things to do this coming week. I look for you to attend some or all of these events.
