Bye Borean Tundra: A Bittersweet Prose and a Bitchy Message – Part 2

Bye Borean Tundra: A Bittersweet Prose and a Bitchy Message – Part 2

Part 1 is here, folks. This post is horribly delayed, but with so many exciting things to do since Cataclysm dropped, I didn’t have time to dwell on the negative experience I had that prompted me to leave Borean Tundra. But since I feel compelled to finish the second and last installment (I hate leaving anything unfinished) , I figured it’s best to do it now, on the last day of the year, just to get the toxic stuff out…

Bye Borean Tundra: A Bittersweet Prose and a Bitchy Message – Part 1

Bye Borean Tundra: A Bittersweet Prose and a Bitchy Message – Part 1

I never imagined I would leave the first home I made in Azeroth. Being the sentimental sap that I am, I find it extremely difficult to tear myself away from people and places — albeit virtual – I’ve become quite attached to. I rolled and leveled two characters to 80 – and a third one up to 79 – on Borean Tundra, determined to enjoy my experience and earn every achievement possible. I shed blood, sweat, tears and cussed a…

Who Loves Piggy?!

Who Loves Piggy?!

I meet the most interesting people via the Random Dungeon Finder system, I kid you not. And today, I had the (dubious) honor of being grouped with Borean Tundra’s most notorious Trade Chat troll, Funnypiggy! Yes, I told myself, I finally get to run with a Legend!!! Too bad he died within the first 2 minutes of the fight. And I failed to see why he would need on a green item. Then he just started slacking off in the…

I’ll Say It Again

I’ll Say It Again

Snowcow and Takako, please come back. I hate depending on puggies to fill slots in our Lich King combat. I hate seeing different people in each attempt, what with all that time wasted on explaining the fight. Last night we tried a different spot when we engaged the LK. I wasn’t used to it. In fact, what was wrong with the original placement? One puggie healer bailed on us without a word. What a charming f*cktard. We wasted so much…

Some Things Never Change

Some Things Never Change

Now that I’ve gotten over the shock and awe from Tuesday’s patch (amongst other interesting things), I can finally write this post. Seeing the new launcher sent my heart rate through the roof. (Click to see actual size) Stepping into Orgrimmar for the first time took my breath away. Overwhelmed was an understatement. I felt like a lost tourist in the city I once knew like the back of my hand. Goblins are now our bankers. The Archeology Trainer is…

Congratulations to my good buddy Denefblah on the Kingslayer title! I’m proud of you, kid! That PUG was lucky to have you there. You’re always a fine addition to any raid. Keep rocking the DPS charts!

Coping With Patch 4.0.1

Coping With Patch 4.0.1

So how have I — along with so many others on Borean Tundra — been coping with Patch 4.0.1 since it dropped? Apopsoda summed up the first day very, erm, eloquently: In the midst of the confusion and chaos on the first day, I quickly turned to the WoW Insider page on Death Knights I bookmarked to help me deal with the major changes to the class. But even with the guide and sundry suggestions from players on Trade Chat,…

The Frostwing Halls! Sindragosa Down!

The Frostwing Halls! Sindragosa Down!

AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!! WE KILLED SINDRAGOSA!!!  OH. MY. GOD. (Click to see actual size) The nightmare is over! We downed the bitch! WTFOMGWEDIDITWEDIDITWEDIDIT!!! I screamed so loud when Sindy collapsed and the cheevo flashed on the screen, my kids’ nanny thought someone had broken into my room and assaulted me. Weeks and weeks of learning the fights and watching the Tankspot videos again and again. Months and months of watching Blood Legion’s first world kill of the Lich King and wondering if…

Top Guild Rivalry

Top Guild Rivalry

Current and former Tundramen have called Borean Tundra every bad name known to man and orc. Call it whatever you want, it’s still home to me. I play on several other servers but I spend more time here. What makes BT unique for me is its cast of characters that pepper Trade Chat with their prose and inanity, successfully eliciting reactions that run the entire spectrum of emotions, plus the struggles that come from being outnumbered by the Alliance, wanting…

Thank You, Officers

Thank You, Officers

Thank you, Eternalzig, Snowcow, Catain and the other guild officers of Good Intentions, for my promotion. 🙂 Thank you for believing in me, for all the fantastic support you have shown me since Day One, especially the time when I was harassed in-game by certain jackasses of another guild with whom my brief experience as a member had been nothing but negative. You stood by me during that very challenging time. You made me  a member of your core raiding…

Vynlandis

This category is a tribute to the WoW players – both Borean Tundra and non-BT residents – whose random acts of kindness left a lasting impression on me. This category also serves as a reminder to yours truly not to lose hope — that there are still kindhearted and unselfish people in this game. Even when your own guildies and friends let you down, at least there are still good people running around who know how to treat others with…
