Today has been a pretty weird day. I spent a good portion of it leveling H (lvl 26!) in Duskwood. I spent most of that time dead, but it was fun. During questing, on my way to kill some Worgens I believe, I had my first encounter with Stitches. This wasn’t one of those ‘admire’ him from afar encounters. It was a I was walking along and suddenly I was being pummeled by his mass of random appendages and then watching him run away from my corpse encounter. Sad part is I was just informed about him two days ago and had the two people who vividly described him and told me to run if I saw him by myself not said anything… I wouldn’t have known what was going on. Since I did know what was going on (after the fact) I spent the rest of the time traveling with ‘Track Undead’ on so that I could run for my life if he came within range again. And he did, two more times. Thanks to my new friend Sess and to my dear Ameilia. =D
H also got new gear, so she isn’t so much of a fail Hunter. She was just a ‘let’s mess around’ toon at first but since I lost interest in doing too much with Kai, I’ve become more serious about H. So new gear and so far it is serving her well! My hog pet, Truffles, is serving her well too. He makes things go dead.
I made a decision today to put Kainda back into Revenged. Adelinda will be joining her rather than putting Mizteri back in. I’m going to lvl Miz a little more, but she is going to remain in Fritos and become my bank toon and whatever else I feel like doing with her. Maybe I’ll do PvP with her? Anyway. Had a chat with the GM of Revenged and told him I missed the chaos and my friends in guild, that I wanted to get back in but that I wasn’t going to have anything to do with the certain member (who hasn’t been around for a while) that I had issues with last time. He was fine with it, of course, so within the next day or so both Adi and Kai will be in Revenged and I will be able to do things with help a lot more haha. I think I needed the break from Revenged, but I do want to do 10man raids with Kai so I think that is the next goal. Plus, Kai has really…really terrible gear and DPS and that HAS to change. I refuse to remain like that!
One last bit of random for the day. While grabbing my fishing daily in Dal today, I (and a lot of other people on at the time) got a whisper from ‘Blizzard.’ You know, one of those hacker types that tries to look official and offer something really awesome just to get your account info and screw you over big time? Yeah, well, anyone who actually believed this one receives the second biggest fail award. The first biggest fail award goes to the person(s) who sent the whisper. Here is what it said:
[Blizzard]: Hello. To thank you for your support for World of Warcraft. Blizzard will be giving your horse a celestial steed. Receiving Please visit: http://www.wowcataclymus.com
Let’s talk about the things that are wrong with this.
1) Punctuation does wonders for a sentence. In this example, it shows us how inept these people are at a task as simple as writing a sentence.
2) I don’t have a horse, but if I did it would be getting a Celestial Steed! Wow! How great for my horse!
3) ‘Receiving Please Visit ‘ Grammar much? Let’s pretend you aren’t a total failure, Mr. or Mrs. hacker person. Whoops, my imagination can’t connect to the server. Sorry.
4) Cataclymus? Really? What made anyone think that that wouldn’t be one of the big red flags about this message? Aside from the fact that the message itself is a red flag?
Okay. I’m done with that. Listening to Fealen PvP on his Priest while I am doing my fishing daily. I just really wanted to write this post.
Until next time!
Revenged raids, somewhere, at least every night. Monday seems to be whatever they want to do, Tues-Thurs is ICC (10 and 25) and Fridays… I don’t really know for sure cause I’m rarely home Friday nights. Even though I left Revenged for several reasons, I still jump into their vent channel now and again, and Fealen is still fully engulfed in it. Lately, while Fealen raids, I stick around for the majority of it and do my own thing on either Adi or one of the SAN toons. It is during these times that I get to listen to Fealen and the guys of Revenged in vent while they raid. And it is these times that I realize what Zelmaru meant in their post: OMG Guys in Vent. Well… more that all THEY can think about is wang wang wang. Seriously, I hear things coming from vent sometimes that makes me wonder just how straight some of the guys are, or if any of them are on drugs. Hell, even Fealen says things that cause me to stop what I am doing and look at him in shock (this response has gotten me killed more than a few times, so I try to ignore it now. Though sometimes that is impossible).
Of course, there are the few that realize that Fealen listens to vent through his computer speakers and anyone around him can hear what is being said. Most who know that much are the good friends from Revenged that I have made and will, on occasion, say something just to get a rise out of me. For example, one night Gurhulk decided to compare me to (I believe it was) Rotface. I think at the time he was unaware that I was in the room. Needless to say I jumped on to Kai, whispered him, and pretended to be very angry with him. Bully for me because he sheepishly apologized the next time I saw him.
I suppose my point of this post is to wonder at the things guys say when they are clumped together in vent, doing a silly raid or a serious one, and the way others react to it. I’ve grown to expect ANYTHING from them now, but even still they manage to surprise me every now and again. But anyone else unlucky enough to be in the room while vent is up? I pity their poor ears and souls for some of the things the guys say.
So, what is it about Vent that makes it into a big ‘my-dick-is-bigger-’ contest or a ‘i-love-you-man’ conversation that reaches levels that make me question the sexuality of even my boyfriend? Why do they turn from 20-someodd or older men into sniveling little boys back in High School trying to be the coolest, the one with the biggest cock or the one who gets to go to bed that night and get something extra from their ‘woman’ as they so often refer to us? And what would happen should one of us feminine types get in vent and start joining in to that chatter? Would they welcome her into the conversation, laugh at her crude remarks as they do each others? Or would they turn all the attention to her until she leaves or proves she can stand the heat against them and they turn back to each other?
Am I the only one who hears things like that in vent?
Until next time!
I know, I know. I’ve neglected my posts greatly. My last post was mainly to state what choices I have made recently regarding <Revenged> (which, by the way, went over well. Still friends with those that matter, but no longer a guildie). I haven’t actually written any honest-to-Goddess, WoW based posts since my one about my Hunter’s pets. So, let’s catch up, shall we?
Not a whole lot has changed with the Eitrigg toons aside from Mizteri and Kainda jumping out of <Revenged> and into <Fritos>. The SAN toons, yes toons, is another story. Last I spoke of SAN I had only my Draenei Pally, Meja. I very rapidly came to the conclusion that I make a terrible Pally and I am just going to use her for professions and such (so basically leveling her with Fealen 2.0 via quests so I can reach certain mats, but beyond that not much). To make up for my pathetic attempt at a Ret Pally, I created a new toon for SAN. Kaindah is, you guessed it, a Hunter. Since I know how to play a Hunter best, I thought it an easy way to catch up to Fealen 2.0 so we could level toons together once more. This has, not surprisingly, proven to be just the case.
My only real issues with Kaindah is that I find Nelfs (which she is) to be fairly ugly and more than a little dull. At least Meja, despite being a pain to play, isn’t hard on the eyes. Kaindah was beat with an ugly stick a few too many times. Either way, she will work for my purposes. BM Hunter to level with Fealen 2.0 while he is not raiding or doing other things on WoW. Meja will remain existant for professions and my personal entertainment, while the Eitrigg toons exist to keep me connected to those I call my WoW family.
I must clarify something quickly. I don’t find Meja difficult to play because of the class or anything. My main issue is I dislike healing, tanking would be a mess for me to do, so Ret sounded like a grand idea. Then I realized the I am AWFUL at melee DPS. I have a lock, my two hunters and, until recently, my Druid was ranged too. Now she is feral so I will have to get used to melee DPS anyway. Perhaps once I get used to Miz, Meja will be easier to play for me. I just thought I would clarify my reasons for finding her difficult to play. I am truly a ranged DPS player and find all else boring or frustrating.
I believe I will bring this to a close. I have added myself among the ranks of BlogAzeroth, so I do hope to gain more readers. As I have said before, this Blog is not for hardcore players looking for some advice. This is a blog of the many random ramblings and rants of a fairly green WoW player and blogger.
Until next time!
Two servers. Five toons. Three guilds. It is a frustrating and interesting thing all at once. And last night, after a brief conversation with a good friend in real life and in game, I got to thinking. My first question to myself was ‘Why am I in <Revenged>?’ The answer came pretty quickly and made me sad. I’m in <Revenged> because that is where my boyfriend wanted me to be. I have a handful of friends in< Revenged>, but they are also supportive of me no matter what I do OUT of guild. So the next question was ‘What if I left <Revenged>?’ I’m sure I get a few complaints, a little begging not to (maybe?) but I really don’t BELONG there. I am there as ‘Fealen’s Girlfriend’ or ‘Mrs. Fealen’ to most. I have no real identity of my own with the majority of the people in that guild. Not to mention I don’t really like raiding a whole ton with them. I mean, I think raiding could be fun but there are people in every group there that rub me the wrong way. And I don’t mean the typical jerk that you find in every pug or raid party. There have been conversations, things said, that cause me to be uncomfortable around them. One individual instills such anger within me that I usually just quit what I am doing if he gets involved. I have reasons for such a dislike of the person that very few would understand or find to be a ‘good reason’ but this is not the reason for this entry…
I have decided that Kainda and Mizteri, my toons in <Revenged>, are going to be moved into <Fritos>. <Fritos> is the guild Adelinda is in. It was created by Fealen and his good friend Gurhulk (he who made me question my existence in Revenged) as a joke and it has stuck around. Kainda was in it for her first… 70 levels I believe. I will keep those who have become like a second family to me on my friends list so I don’t lose contact with them, will run randoms with them when they want, but I have no need to remain in <Revenged> any longer. If they want me for something, they will know how to reach me.
As for <Single Abstract Noun>… I’ve never felt I belonged anywhere as much as I do there. It is a guild full of people who do what I do everyday; write and/or read. If I am not playing WoW, sleeping, working or out on date night friday nights… I am reading or writing. It is my life, my escape from all the stress I face each day. The people in SAN understand that. They are kind, accepting, funny and generally fun to be around. They are helpful when someone has a question and willing to talk to you for twenty minutes about nothing just because you mentioned you had a bad day. They will party-up with you if you are on the same quest and both struggling so you can finish it and be able to move on. Then not end the party just because that quest is finished but, in fact, have a small private chat with you for a few more minutes. In SAN I belong, I am accepted and I feel that, should we ever reach raiding status, it would not only be interesting but fun as well.
That is my post for today. To those who are saddened by my decisions, I am sorry. We can have a chat so I can explain my choices further. But I hope you support me in the choices I am making and continue to be like my brothers and sisters. <3
Until next time!
