Warlords of Draenor: Someone’s Returning to WoW

Warlords of Draenor: Someone’s Returning to WoW

Beautiful, incredible cinematic trailer! Amazing what one trailer can do to change a person’s mind about not playing the next expansion. But nope, it’s not me. Hubby revived his WoW account recently to do some arenas and pet battles while things are slow at work, but he himself had declared repeatedly that Mists of Pandaria is his last xpac. Until he saw the trailer and urged me to watch it. “It’s (bleep)ing awesome, hun!” he yelped, followed by a declaration…

Dreaming of Ashes of Al’ar

First post in ages! I have been so busy with a million and one things, I almost forgot this website existed. While I did Tweet on occasion, my blog languished somewhere between my Justice and Moral Philosophy readings and road trips. Anyway, I figured this would be a good time to update it and bore my remaining three (probably less) readers AND make the most of my paid domain and web hosting. I’d like to talk about a dream I…

A Look Back: As a WoW Player, I was…#6

A Look Back: As a WoW Player, I was…#6

As a WoW Player, at least I – never ninja’d anything from the guild bank – never used/abused/abandoned others to reach my objectives in the game – always paid for my own repairs outside raids. I don’t believe it is your guild’s responsibility to pay for repairs incurred outside guild runs. Whatever wear and tear you inflict on your gear as you quest/explore/PvP/hunt for rares/et cetera by your lonesome is your own doing; hence, you are to pay out of…

A Look Back: As a WoW Player, I Was…#5

As a WoW player, at least I – did my best to treat everyone fairly – was never to rude to anyone, unless they were rude to me first, then that’s when I unleash hell – did not pull ahead of tank, except on certain runs when people were asshats, then that’s when I pull all the things and leave party – did not roll on off-spec tank gear if I knew the tank needed it more, but if he…

A Look Back: As a WoW Player, I Was…#4

As a WoW player, at least I was – humble enough to accept that I had to pay my dues first before I could earn a raid spot – did not misbehave in any manner that would sully the guild name or my own name for that matter – did not trash other guildies on guild chat, whether they were offline or online. If I had a complaint about someone, I would tell an officer privately – did not spam…

A Look Back: As a WoW Player, I Was…#3

As a WoW player, at least I was – a dependable raider. 99.99% of the time I was punctual, and I ALWAYS had my own flasks and feasts. – I also had the good sense to repair BEFORE the raid, unlike the idiots who would zone in and, literally a few seconds before the first pull, pipe up: “Um, anyone got a Jeeves? I forgot to repair.” >.< – I knew how to avoid crap on the ground, not caring…

A Look Back: As a WoW Player, I Was…#2

As a WoW player, at least I was – helpful to newbies – patient with and considerate to nervous first-timers (“My first time in this dungeon, sorry”, “Please don’t kick me, I’m still working on my rotation.”) – didn’t openly make fun of those with the wrong gems and enchants (except for those who stubbornly insisted that they were right and I was the retard) – NEVER TROLLED TRADE CHAT!

A Look Back: As a WoW Player, I Was…#1

This is a new category I created where I will write short posts reflecting on my time as a World of Warcraft player. This is the first post. As a WoW player, at least I was – self-sufficient – didn’t beg, borrow or steal – looked up things myself rather than pestering others to give me the answers – basically not a pain in the ass to people

So I Got All These Great Plans…

So I Got All These Great Plans…

Don’t know if I should call it a cosmic joke, a test or the Man upstairs just being playful with me. I’ll write about it when I’m feeling better. I’m worn out from doing chores and a ton of homework, wherein I discovered I can’t conjugate for shit (I’m taking Spanish) nor make sense of financial formulas (I’m also taking Finance). Must be information overload that’s getting to me. And that’s just two out of the five classes I signed…

Top-Ranked Realm Doesn’t Always Mean Top-Quality Players?

Top-Ranked Realm Doesn’t Always Mean Top-Quality Players?

I said my goodbyes in that post I wrote on January 7th. I handed over my WoW account to my husband, who has the privilege to use my characters for farming purposes. My sub expires next week. It’s up to him if he wants to extend it. Since hanging up my plate gloves, I’ve been busy with classes and homework, fixing up my home, writing my novel and visiting relatives. Every now and then I would lurk on my level…
