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!

Diffiuclt Decisions

03/15/2010 at 11:50 AM (Rants) (, , , )

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. ❤

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!
