Wishful Thinking: Free Transfers for the Outnumbered and Oppressed

Wishful Thinking: Free Transfers for the Outnumbered and Oppressed

It’s been almost two months since my Whisperwind raid team moved to Stormrage and I can honestly say that I have no regrets (so far). From getting stuck at 3/12 in Throne of Thunder, we are now at 9/12. We had a rough start during the first few weeks, but now that everybody’s schedule is in sync and our ilevels have improved, getting the job done has become so much easier. Stormrage is a pretty active, highly-populated and extremely crazy…

Introducing Lizzie

Introducing Lizzie

Friends, meet my Death Knight, Lizzie.  /cue mood music So this post is about the inspiration behind her name, being written on a slow night on half a brain (with the other half already thinking of what I should cook for breakfast tomorrow Tuesday, a day reserved for more meticulously-prepared morning meals due to it being patch/maintenance day and a time for me to get my ass off the computer chair and do something different and creative, though I have…

And Yet I’ve Got a Good Feeling About This

And Yet I’ve Got a Good Feeling About This

As you all know, I made the most painful transition two days ago: Call me a traitor to the Horde if you wish, but for the last several weeks I felt that my fellow Hordies betrayed me, albeit not in a backstabbed-me-betrayed kind of way, but more of a you-let-me-down kind of way. What the heck was I supposed to do, stick it out for a million and a half more wipes while we scrambled to get reliable peeps? I…

It Took Balls…

It Took Balls…

…to server-transfer my Death Knight for the third time, chop off his nuts AND turn him into a female human. And since the name Cloudrunner was already taken, I had to pick a new one. Nothing airy-fairy-Tolkien-esque about the new name; it is about as ordinary and boring as could be…until I narrate the inspiration behind it. There’s so much to tell, but in the meantime, let me grieve the loss of my pretty boy who was the apple of…

A One-Way Ticket to New Opportunities

A One-Way Ticket to New Opportunities

I’ve made my decision: I’ll be moving to another realm — my hunter’s server, to be exact. I was promised by my significant other that he’ll take care of it soon; I just don’t know exactly when. All I know is that Blizzard/Activision is going to be $55 richer ($25 for the realm transfer, $30 for the faction change). Yes, I’m going Alliance. And it’s breaking my heart. I’ve been mainly Horde since Day One of playing World of Warcraft,…

If I Were to Faction Change, Which Race Should I Choose?

If I Were to Faction Change, Which Race Should I Choose?

If Cloudrunner were to become Alliance, should I make him… …Human? Yuck. Hate the ape arms. Dwarf? Fugly beyond words. ‘Nuff said. Night Elf? I hate Nelf guys. They look like male strippers. Gnome? Oh hell no! Draenei? So Cloudrunner goes from looking like a male supermodel to a refrigerator? No thanks. Worgen? The sniffing sounds alone make me want to commit genocide. Are there no attractive males in the Alliance???

Dynamic Duo!

Dynamic Duo!

WOOT! Got my alliance hunter to level 90 and got two sweet cheevos for my effort. 🙂 (Click to see actual size) That’s another 45 achievement points to my credit. I plan to make this hunter my PvP toon as today I rediscovered the joys of PvPing as a ranged class. I also got a lot of PvP practice outside BGs today when I — a Hordie at heart — absentmindedly flew into the Horde capital in Vale of the…
