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…

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

The NSA in WoW

The NSA in WoW

From yesterday’s TechCrunch article: NSA And Other Intelligence Agencies Got All Up In Your World Of Warcraft, Xbox Live The next time you’re looking to party with a dark elf Rogue in World of Warcraft, think twice: that could be an NSA agent in disguise. According to new documents from the Snowden leaks, both the NSA and the GCHQ employed World of Warcraft and Second Life, as well as Xbox Live, to gather intel and uncover plots – but it…

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…

Reins of the Onyxian Drake!

Reins of the Onyxian Drake!

OH MY F*CKING DEITY!!!! After countless Onyxia kills on my Death Knight, with this week still as unlucky as ever, I pushed for a second attempt on my much-neglected level 90 Alliance hunter (whom I’ve been meaning to server/faction transfer but recent real-life changes are forcing me to rethink my priorities, but more on that later). Well, call her Little Miss Lucky! 🙂 Thank goodness I don’t ever have to step foot in that instance again!

Happy Thanksgiving, Y’all!

Happy Thanksgiving, Y’all!

Enjoy Turkey Day, folks! And to the WoW players who haven’t gotten their Pilgrim title yet because they’ve been too chicken hesitant like me to do Pilgrim’s Peril in the past, suck it up and get it done! The humiliation and x number of deaths are worth the cheesy 10 points and title. I’m taking a break to spend time with my mom who’s visiting. Have fun with your own loved ones! Peace and blessings.
