Questing

01/07/2012 at 9:51 AM (DailyBlah, Random, Updates, WoW) (, , , , , , , , , , )

I’ve come to a realization…

I hate questing alone. At least, right now I do. All of the toons I want to work on are between level 35 and 50. I’m finding I am really not a fan of these levels or the zones I need to quest in. Blah.

On a brighter note, it’s nice to be back on the toons. H, Meja, Adelinda, Kainda and Mel are all great to play. The variety between them wasn’t lost on me in the past, and it certainly isn’t now. I love the thrill of face-to-face (or face-to-claw) combat with Meja and Mel. But the ranged dps is always refreshing, too, with the hunters and Adi.

Next post, I’ll have a list of my toons, their levels and a few other things. Suggestions are more than welcome (though I’m not sure anyone ever even reads this thing).

Be safe out there! It’s a wild and crazy place, that Azeroth.

 

Until next time!

Let me tell you a tale…

05/27/2010 at 9:48 PM (Rants, Updates, WoW) (, , , , , , )

So my drive to play WoW is fairly… stagnant. I mean, I’ve been leveling H several times this past week. I think she is almost 28 now. I haven’t done a whole lot of anything else on any of the other toons. My main obsession lately is Fable II. Yeah, I know. I’m sorry. I am abandoning you for Fable. Not really. I just can’t seem to stop playing it. It’s a change from the monotony so for now I will focus on that until I start feeling the need to jump back into WoW more. That isn’t to say I am stopping playing WoW for good while I play Fable.  I’ll still be on H and probably Mel if I decide I want to deal with the quests she is on. And my horde toons have to get some love too. I just won’t be on as much as I had been this last week or more.

Aside from straying from WoW… hmm. Let me see. I am nearly done questing with H in Duskwood, then it is off to meet up with Fealen2.0 in Menithil Harbor to quest together again. I’ve missed questing with him. It was a way that I got to spend some time with him after he got out of work and didn’t want to do anything aside from play WoW. So having toons at the same level again will be nice.

Adelinda has moved on to Stranglethorn Vale. I enjoy quests in that area. I feel as though I am lost in the Amazon doing everything I can to survive. The fact that I am Undead, a Warlock and can summon a mount at just about any given time may not be realistic to that fantasy, but it at least adds to the mystery.

Kai is working hard at dailies. I do my fishing daily every day that I am on. I run a dungeon every other day most times, though sometimes Feef makes me do it everyday. HOWEVER. He’s really into PvP on Coag right now so dailies don’t happen as often. Uhm. I’m trying to get her LW up to full, too. It’s a pain in the arse, but I am getting there. Slowly but surely…

Miz and Meja remain my bank alts for the prospective servers. I took Meja out recently to do some mining. Mizteri still needs some professions aside from cooking. I might do that this weekend or something. Mel is stuck on her current quests and since I am all alone and they are all orange or red… I’m feeling pretty blah about them so instead of working through them I am just letting her sit in the Inn for a while until I feel ambitious.

I’m running out of fun things to blog about. Blog Azeroth is nice, but doesn’t provide me with many topics that I know a lot about or have a lot of interest in. So I am going to leave the floor open to suggestions from those of you who read on a regular basis. Random updates on the toons is great but I am getting bored with this blog, so PLEASE give me some ideas! Otherwise I may take a hiatus.

Until next time!

Let’s Play the Random Game!

05/22/2010 at 5:47 PM (Rants, Updates, WoW) (, , , , )

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!

PvP?

03/06/2010 at 12:30 PM (Rants) (, , , )

Hello all! As promised I have kept up with my posts. Granted, I could lose my inspiration and go another week before the next one. Let’s hope not, right? Anywho. Today’s topic is pretty obvious from the title: PvP.

Kainda was leveled through quests and, starting at 75, dungeon runs. Adi, as you know, has been quests and will be doing a lot of dungeons in the upcoming levels. Mizti was quests until 15, and dungeons from then on and will probably only quest when it is just Fealen and I bored and not wanting to run anything with Coag and Kai. I haven’t really done any PvP. I ran a Alterac Valley MAYBE five times with Kainda. Wintergrasp once and decided I didn’t like it. But I haven’t really done much else. I dislike Wintergrasp a lot. AV is fun, but I haven’t done it in forever. And I’ve never actually done any 1-on-1 PvP. Fealen has some PvP only alts and I wonder if maybe Adi might end up at that point before her time to be 80 has come. I mean, AV isn’t so bad. And I have seen some of the other BGs played enough that I understand what to do. My problem is that I worry too much what other people will think of me as a player, which I know is a very girl thing to do. But, what can I say?

I suppose my biggest issue is knowing that people who have played WoW a lot longer and a lot more than I have see people with so little experience as I as nOObs or, as my guild calls them, Scrubs. It bothers me more than it really should, but I want to do well in the game and when someone calls me out for something that I didn’t even know was an issue, and isn’t exactly kind about it, I girl-up and get hurt feelings. Yeah, trust me. I know how dumb it is.

“It is just a game.” “They are stupid, and you will probably never encounter them again through your entire WoW career” “Ignore them and have fun. If you were really doing something wrong I would tell you.” Those are things I hear when my feelings about pompous, know-it-all jerks are expressed, whether it be through rage quitting or shutting down emotionally because someone called me a nOOb. He has a point, and I know he does, but that doesn’t stop my girl emotions from flaring up every now and again. Especailly when a particular guild member decides to make me his target of the hour.

He’s an okay guy. He can be super funny, and say things that most people wouldn’t usually even think of. But he likes to joke around a lot and his ‘joking around’ can sometimes be quite offensive or hurtful. He has said more than a few things that have rubbed me the wrong way, to the point that I have him muted on Vent and in GChat he is ignored on most of his toons. I won’t even do a 10man if he is involved in it because even though I have him muted, doesn’t mean Fealen does. And he has, more often than not, made his opinion of my lack of skill very well known. it is people like him that make me not want to play. Make me girl-up and get hurt feelings or feel useless no matter what I do. I hate that I get that way, but I do. And, to round it back to my original topic, it is why I don’t PvP. I hate how terrible a player I am in the first place. I don’t need other people to point it out to me.

Maybe sometime soon I will take Kainda into a BG. Or something. Until then I will stick with my dailies on her, and the dungeons with the other two.

Until next time!
