Misdirected

10/01/2010 at 9:40 AM (Random, Updates, WoW) (, , )

The big Hunter in the sky shot me in the ass with a Misdirect. Hence my distraction from the WoW community…

Sorry I literally vanished off the face of Azeroth. School started, then I got a job. I’m working in between my classes. Homework at the end of the day. I get very little time for much else. BUT. I did manage to play WoW for a little over and hour yesterday between class and work, and I played the day before for about three hours with Fealen. H and 2.0 are currently taking on STV and so far we kick ass. Kind of…

My focus, the few times I have been on WoW in the last couple of weeks, has been my SAN toons. I’ve been working on Meja quite a bit, and H is coming along nicely as well. It’s been nice to be able to just jump on and  kill things when life gets a little too stressful. I did, however, get on Adelinda a bit yesterday. Consequently she (and Meja) is also in STV. They’re all in their 30’s right now. Anyway. It was nice to be on one of the Revenged toons.

Well, the big Hunter in the sky is going to notice me edging away from the target he set me on, so I better sneak away before I get shot with another Misdirect.

Until next time!

The Best Kinds of Friends

08/29/2010 at 8:29 AM (Updates, WoW)

Sometimes the best kinds of friends are the ones who remember when your birthday is, know exactly what to get you, and do so a month early. Gotta send tons of thanks and love to Gibs for my 90day game-time he got me for my birthday next month. I got my new computer (and despite it being a netbook, I still intend to play WoW on it) and have WoW downloaded onto it. Just need to get the updater to work and I am good to go. Expect to see me on within the next few days. School starts Wednesday. I’ll need something to do in/in between classes :-p

Super excited for the new stuff and for school to start, but can’t wait to play again. Missing my SAN loves (I must be SO far behind now) and my Revenged loves. One thing I will say I will always be thankful to Fealen for was getting me to play this game and meet so many amazing people. Makes me look back at the first two years of our relationship and wonder how it would have been different if I’d just started playing the first time he asked…

Anyway. Just wanted to update everyone.I will swing by campus and see if the computer club has an open computer after I get some stuff done tomorrow. If they do, I will be on and very happy to say hi to everyone ❤ 🙂

(Yes, this also means I will be posting more regularly)

Until next time!

It lives!

08/11/2010 at 7:23 PM (Rants)

I am alive! I swear it! In fact, out of boredom, I made a trial account to get a little play time in. I can’t join the guild, however, so that blows. But at least I got to play a little.

I get my refund check from my college next month. I will be reactivating my account when I do and (hopefully) getting a new computer to be able to play on. Everyone cross your fingers, toes, arms, legs and anything else you can that I am able to pull this off! Haha!

In other news: When I come back, I will slowly be transferring my toons over to Argent Dawn. Maybe not all of them will be in SAN, but they will at least be on Argent Dawn. And most likely will be doing faction change to them too. I think I decided Adelinda and Kainda were the only ones who would be remaining in Revenged as they are the two I enjoy playing most on Horde/Eitrigg. All the others will find their way to Alliance soon. :-p

Well as much as I would love to ramble on for several hours, I am going to get some play time in. If anyone wants to send me a tell (since I can only chat with people that have added me as a friend) add Abrette to your friends’ lists on Eitrigg or add Keerani to your friends’ lists on Argent Dawn. I get lonely, so some tells from good friends would be nice.

Until next time!

Step-by-step

07/26/2010 at 9:05 AM (Rants)

Just wanted to toss you an update on my life!

I will be moving into my apartment today and tomorrow. At least, with the stuff that I have so far lol. After I get everything in and start school I will be getting some money. If I can manage it I plan to get a new laptop or even a desktop so I can play again. It is all a matter of time and money right now. But I will be back before the end of September at the latest. I hope. All the same, I miss the game and both guilds like crazy. Trying to keep myself in the loop via blogs but it isn’t the same… just can’t wait to be back in game!

Lots more has happened in my life, but nothing I really feel like going into detail about lol. Anyone who needs to/wants to keep in touch with me just drop me a comment and I will respond. I check this blog daily to see if anyone loves me =p

Until next time?

I didn’t know this was goodbye.

07/10/2010 at 11:13 PM (Random) (, , )

So I am apparently not going to be playing WoW anymore. Fealen and I broke up and since he was paying for my WoW account, he canceled it as soon as we broke up. I may or may not be able to play again. It all depends on how life pans out for me in the near future. I’d love to keep playing, despite this break up, but I can’t and won’t make any promises.

Before anyone asks, yes I am okay. Well, as okay as I can be. I have to go through the typical break-up blues. We were together for almost 3 years, so yes it is fairly difficult. We are going to try to be friends some time in the future. I don’t know how distant or close that future is, but we’ll give it a shot sometime.

I suppose that is all for now. I’ll keep reading blogs and post now and again with updates on life as well as some of my random ramblings. Much love and I hope to be able to join you in Azeroth again sometime soon.

Until… sometime…

A Letter from Kainda

07/08/2010 at 12:37 PM (Random, WoW) (, )

Dear BRK,

I’m sure you don’t know me. In fact, you probably don’t even know that I exist.  But I wanted to write a letter to you, that you probably won’t ever read, to let you know how much I admire you. See, I’m a pretty lame Hunter. Well, most of the time. I know how to stay out of things that look potentially dangerous to my health, I don’t often find myself being called a ‘Huntard’ and I can do my job to the best of my ability. But I am also aware that my gear is far from acceptable for any level80 Hunter, I have some pretty terrible DPS and I might, just might, have a small fear of Raids.

Telling you about myself isn’t the point of this letter though. I am writing to thank you for making me feel better about myself as a Hunter. Many of my Guild Mates, and other friends around Azeroth, enjoy telling me that I am only a Hunter because that is the class n00bs play. But after seeing you videos and reading your blog, I have come to realize that being a Hunter is an honor. And all that talk from the other classes? Yup, jealousy!

I don’t admit undying devotion to many people. I’m a pretty free spirit. I listen only to my trainers, my Guild Master on occasion and the voices in my head. Other than that? I give the commands. I decide what to attack, when to attack it, how to attack it. And my loving, devoted pets don’t typically question me (but every Hunter knows by now that making pets listen ALL the time is a near impossible feat, right?) I am the pack leader, and it feels great. However, your skill, sense of humor and willingness to help other Hunters be what we were meant to be is more than admirable. I can sit and watch the same video over and over and learn something new from it each time. You explain things clearly and in a way that even Orcs can understand.

You have inspired me to get off my cute little Blood Elf arse, pick up my bow, call to my devoted cat Slynx, or Munroe… maybe even my bear Fig if I am feeling ambitious, and go out and face Azeroth at its worse. I can once again join groups for random dungeon runs and not worry about my low gear or DPS because I do my job right and that should be what matters right now, until I get better gear and show them all that I am a Hunter and I will not be discriminated against.

I guess what I am trying to say in a very round about way, BRK, is thank you. You’ve instilled inspiration in me to live my life once again. You’ve given me the tools that have helped me feel confident in my ability to be a Hunter. You’ve got me to be who and what I was meant to be. And you’ve helped me become better at everything with your amazing guides.

Thank you, BRK. You have my undying love and devotion.

Love always,

Kainda

Without an escape

07/04/2010 at 1:36 PM (DailyBlah, Updates, WoW) (, , )

Hey all. Just wanted to let everyone know that I am not going to be on WoW for a while. I moved out of Fealen’s place and since my laptop is a piece of junk and can’t handle WoW, I don’t have a whole lot of access to it for a bit. I should be able to sneak on once in a while, probably starting around  midweek this week. There is a computer club on my college campus and people should be around more midweek than they are  right now. The computer club literally a room with like 10 pc’s and people go in just to play games. CoD, WoW, Oblivion… the list is far too long to list. All the same, I am the unofficial first lady of the club. Which means that the previous President and the current President of the club asked that I make sure to keep things in order when they aren’t around to do so. The VP is off campus all summer, so it is up to me to keep the place clean and keep the boys from killing each other when a disagreement breaks out. Hehe.

So yeah. If you need to get in touch with me for any reason my blog is the best place, but my DeviantArt works as well. You can also just whisper Fealen and he will let me know what is up. Not that I think anyone will need me, but just in case.  🙂

Until next time!

And the winner is…

06/30/2010 at 12:12 PM (WoW) (, )

Well! I reviewed all the responses to my questions and have decided upon a winner. Now, before I announce said winner, I must say that I am disappointed that not as many people attempted answers as I had hoped, but I am impressed with the answers I received! It was a tough choice to pick just one person to win this mock-contest I threw together. But after reviewing all the responses I narrowed it down to two people (I really wanted to have everyone win. Maybe another contest is needed for the future). I debated between those two people and finally decided that one of them, being a good friend of mine, could request to have a short story any time he wanted. So I suppose he will be considered the runner-up. Gibs, my love, you had some very interesting responses. Definitely typical Gibs 😉

So now the winner. PVE Rogues gave me a creative, fun, funny and sometimes even sensible answer to every question. They either made me laugh the hardest or made the most sense. So congratulations! Head on over to my DeviantArt and glance over some of my short stories. Just go right into my gallery and click the links along the left side. Forged of War is based on a Dungeons and Dragons game so that might be the best place to start. When you’ve done that, let me know the setting and character you’d like me to write about and any other details you like included 🙂

Thank you to everyone else who contributed to the mock-contest! (Except you Gurhulk, you’re just a pain =P). I intend to figure out another contest type thingy sometime. Everyone is welcome to check out my writing and my artwork on DeviantArt. Again, thanks everyone who put in their two-cent!

Until next time!

The time has come…

06/24/2010 at 6:15 PM (Random, WoW) (, )

First thing is first: my little ‘contest’ has come to a close. This means that any chance anyone had to respond to my questions has passed. I’ll go over the answers I have received and choose a ‘winner’ over the weekend. Until then, enjoy some of my rantings. (Warning: The following paragraphs have nothing to do with each other. The only common factor is WoW. Otherwise there is really no connection.)

First off: Meja dinged 30 yesterday! I’m bound and determined to get her to 80 without a leveling/questing buddy. That’s not to say I won’t need help time and again, and some dungeon runs with guildies would be nice, but otherwise I WILL do this by myself!

Next item on the agenda: RealID is my new favorite toy! That is all.

Sometimes I think I’ve really hit an all time low with my WoW addiction and it is entirely Fealen’s fault. The other night I was questing, while trying to get a friend of mine to play WoW so I can get the Refer-a-friend rocket, while at the same time chatting with another friend and making some very adult jokes using WoW terms (‘I want to run your instance’ etc). Of course Fealen found this all very amusing and jumped in on the jokes conversation. Needless to say I was worried for my soul that night. What is left of it that is.

Ever been sitting quietly, grinding out some xp with quests or dungeons, when suddenly, from the other side of the room, voices begin screaming in frustration, anger and despair from vent? No? Well that feel lucky. Fealen and I have our computers in the same room and he keeps his vent fairly loud during raids. I always know when there has been a wipe because of the yelling. On the other hand, when they’ve downed a new boss, the screams of joy ring through the room just as loudly. Not to mention the in-between conversations that typically orbit around the subject of a certain part of the male anatomy. Always a joy when Fealen has his vent open…

I’ve decided to enter the WoW writing contest. Fealen pointed it out to me and I have decided I really want to give it a shot. I write all the time, as some of you know, and a new challenge is just what I need to get my creative juices flowing! So if anyone would like to become my personal editors whenever I actually start this thing, let me know 🙂

I had something that seemed mildly important or entertaining to write about but it seems to be evading my thoughts. If I think of it I will toss it into a note for myself and add it into the next post.

I guess that is all for now.

Until next time!

Truffles the Undead

06/17/2010 at 5:07 PM (Random, Updates, WoW) (, , , )

The other day I was questing with Fealen on H and 2.0. We were wiping out the undead population fairly quickly. Then suddenly, as my pig (truffles) was running back to me I realized something wasn’t quite right. The tag was right, but it wasn’t a pig running at me. It was a tiny female undead. I blinked a few times and pointed it out to Fealen, who seemed slightly amused. I was more than slightly amused. In fact I squealed like a three year old handed a piece of candy everytime Truffles went from pig to Undead. If we were getting ready to mount up, I refused until the curse fell off. She was just too adorable to get rid of so quickly. I also discovered that when I sent Truffles the Undead off to attack something, she was casting some type of spell… it was sparkly and purple and it made me giggle. I think Fealen got a kick out of me more than Truffles. Anyway, I was quick witted enough to grab a screen shot of it.

Earlier in my leveling of H in Menethil Harbor, I encountered another strange thing. Killing crockolisks was enjoyable enough for me, seeing as I hate crocs and alligators irl. But when one died floating in the air, I was disturbed as all Hell. I pointed it out to Fealen (I make him look at a lot of dumb stuff. He’s sitting next to me when we play and even if he is on Eitrigg and I am on Argent Dawn, I make him look at stuff on my screen.)  and he was slightly baffled as well. Once more, I remembered to screen shot it (clever Kainda is clever).

Truffles was her normal piggy self then. Considering it was before the undead incident! ❤

I’ve started leveling Meja again. /gasp! I know. Shocking. I really don’t like melee classes very much (Mel is no more. Just got far too bored with her!) Meja, however, is starting to be fun again. Maybe taking a break from her was just what I needed. All I know is that I leveled two levels and then farmed copper last night and can’t wait to do more tonight. Meja is now, however, no longer the ‘main’ on Argent Dawn. H is. Funny how both of my Hunters are my mains, huh? =P

Oh! Almost forgot. I made a new character in SAN (surprising, I know….please note the sarcasm dripping from every syllable). Her name is Saury (‘sorry’) and she is a Dreanei priest. I made her so I can level with my friend Xerc while life on Eitrigg is boring, or the server is down, or boredom hits. She’s level 7 I believe. =D I’m such an Altaholic.

I’m going to leave Questions open for a few more days so if you want to give them a shot I suggest you do it before I close the ‘contest’ ^.^ I’d really love to see a bunch more responses, please!? I’ve got some really good ones right npw, but more to choose from would make life a lot more entertaining for me. So come on, all. Give it your best shot!

Okay. Entirely too energetic to sit and write. Off to find something else to do…

Until next time!

/kiss
