Back to My Horde Roots…and Having Fabulous Hair Again

Back to My Horde Roots…and Having Fabulous Hair Again

Once upon a time, I tweeted: “Had a weird dream that I server-transferred my DK again. Enough! No more throwing cash at #Blizzard. They already have more money than God.” Well, folks, I just handed them more money and made them richer than God and Satan combined. You: ZOMG WTF YOU TRANSFERRED AND YOU’RE HORDE AGAIN WHO CARES BUT WHY??? Why? Below are the reasons in random order. – My husband is a die-hard Horde. Since I switched to Alliance,…

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…

Hello Stormrage

Hello Stormrage

And goodbye Whisperwind! To my friends reading this post (especially Hordor), I just know you’re taken aback that I transferred again. Well, lemme explain why, and I’ll try to give you the Cliffs Notes version, but knowing myself and how I tend to ramble, this might turn into a TLDR dissertation. The guild on Whisperwind (out of respect for both my former and current GMs, I will not mention the guild name in this post) was one of the best…

Decisions, Decisions

Decisions, Decisions

When your raiding team moves to another server and your Raid Leader offers to pay for your server transfer so you could resume progression with them, what would you do? (Image from: Cybex Fitness Blog) Eh, I’ve made my decision. To be continued.

Hitches and Glitches

Hitches and Glitches

It’s been a month since I transferred to this realm, a decision I don’t regret at all. I’ve been raiding on both my DK and hunter and racking up fun and cheesy achievements like… …and there’s always plenty of people online everyday – even during ungodly hours – organizing all-guild events. However, my transfer included a couple of minor but still irritating glitches that required a ticket that remains unanswered today, such as: – I lost portals. Logging on my…

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…

Exodus from Exodar: Postscript to “Well, It’s Been Fun”

Exodus from Exodar: Postscript to “Well, It’s Been Fun”

A mini-exodus took place last night. Suffice to say that a number of us have had it and made our graceful exits into the quiet evening. I took the exodus a step further by leaving Exodar, my home for a year and a half. My raiding experience was way more satisfying on that server than Borean Tundra, but I was ready to find a new home for my Death Knight. I didn’t say goodbye. It might have been rude of…

Back to Exodar, A Sex Change and Hello, Natsu and the Alliance!

Back to Exodar, A Sex Change and Hello, Natsu and the Alliance!

Sometimes you find out a bit too late that the server and guild you chose don’t match your toons’ goals and needs. I pulled out my pally and hunter from Exodar to a server where a few old friends happened to be happily ensconced. I gave the new realm a shot but something was still amiss. 🙁 I want my pally to become a good tank someday, but she’ll never be one if she stayed there. I know I also…

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…
