New Transitions: A New Guild and Going Casual

New Transitions: A New Guild and Going Casual

I’ve been delinquent about updating my blog and I can only blame it on three things: real life demands, missing my mom and the decision to finally start scaling back on my raiding. On the last one, translation: I’m going casual. The last several weeks have rocked my world in both a good way and a not-so-good way. My mom, whom I had not seen since April last year, came to visit and stayed with me and hubby for a…

The Virtue of Self-Sufficiency

The Virtue of Self-Sufficiency

Whether in real life or in WoW, I have always striven to be as self-sufficient as possible. Only when the going gets really tough for me that I swallow my pride and ask for help, but other than that, I prefer to solve my own problems. For example, in WoW you will rarely see me ask people where a certain object or NPC is located. Wowhead and Google are my best friends (so is my friend Eric on Real ID…

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…

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,…

Raid Rehash and Reflections

Raid Rehash and Reflections

Normally I would rejoice over a boss kill and blog about it ASAP, especially one that had eluded me for the longest time for sundry frustrating reasons, but the death of my friend silenced me into a respite and period of mourning the last several days. Now that I’ve found the strength to move on, it’s time to get back to posting and look back at the craziness that was Heroic Dragon Soul. Heroic mode had always seemed unreachable to…

Why I Respect My Hunter’s GM

Why I Respect My Hunter’s GM

Pardon the cheesy third-grade essay-like title, but I can’t think of another straightforward way of saying that, yup, I respect my other toon’s GM a lot and here’s why: Last night, I logged on my been-inactive-for-too-long alliance hunter and joined an all-guild heroic ICC 25-man run to help our GM finally get his Shadowmourne.  Now before I go any further, I would like to mention the ironic situations my two oldest toons find themselves in: my most beloved, active and…

One Month, Two Guilds

One Month, Two Guilds

I just pulled my Death Knight out of his second guild. The first guild was a joke. Over 1,000 members and no raids. I got an invite out of the blue without any form of preamble, but out of morbid curiosity, I decided to join and give them a shot. However, the GM and officers appeared to be interested only in acquiring  guild perks. Someone asked on guild chat when the first all-guild raid would be and one of the…

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…

The Guild Trip: Zerging Down Memory Lane – Part 1

The Guild Trip: Zerging Down Memory Lane – Part 1

I nearly fell off my seat when I found out that the raid leader of our ICC core group left the guild. I asked a guildie what happened while I was indisposed (am still nursing a bad cold, actually) and he said that basically, the dude wasn’t happy about not getting promoted to his desired position. Then next thing I knew, Ruby Sanctum 10-man was canceled (well, the dude who sent the invite was the same guy who left so…)….

No DKS Allowed: What a D-Bag But At Least I Found a Happy Home

No DKS Allowed: What a D-Bag But At Least I Found a Happy Home

Here is proof that Death Knights don’t get a lot of love on my server: Gil must have used that macros AT LEAST seven times in Trade chat, I had no hesitation reporting him for spam. Now if I could only report him for class discrimination… That guy was in my former guild Obamunism where I stayed for a mere few weeks until I decided it wasn’t the right guild for me. Why and when did I realize that it…
