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!

The Long and Winding Road

03/27/2010 at 9:05 AM (WoW) (, , )

It’s been a long road. I’ve had my ups and downs deciding on my love or hate for WoW. I’ve contemplated quitting more than once, but never had the heart to let go. It seems to have come down to this; I can’t quit. I mean, I certainly could if I wanted to, but that’s where the problem lies. I really don’t want to. I enjoy playing as much as any WoWer, though perhaps not as much as Fealen.

To me WoW is a way to escape the world, as I know it is for Fealen as well. But we escape for different reasons and in different ways. I’m a writer, to the bone. Ink runs through my veins rather than blood. I do nothing without the thought ‘This would be interesting in a story’ crossing my mind at least once. And that is why I love WoW; it is a story I play out as a little computer-game-character. I create reasons for the toon to be doing the quest they are on aside from ‘they are leveling’ and I enjoy the quests more. I make up a whole life for them, and then I become them as I do the characters in the novels and short stories I write. Fealen sees WoW, from what I gather, as a way to just sink into another world after having to deal with BS of the real world. The people he talks to understand and they get lost taking their frustrations out on the bosses of dungeons and raids.

I’ve recently contemplated the idea of starting a ‘journal’ for one of my toons. It’d be filled with her daily routine, things she discovered at random (like stumbling upon a cat statue while leveling Meja and Fealen 2.0 the other day) and her thoughts on what her life has become since her journey began at level 1. I haven’t decided if I want to do it yet or not. My main concern is that I won’t keep up with it the way I plan or want to; my novels and short stories suffer greatly now, so how do I expect to keep up the journal? Another concern is: would anyone read it?

So now my question is for you, my readers. If I were to begin a journal-blog through the eyes of one of my toons, would you read it? What do you suggest for beginning such a process? And most importantly, would you be a part of the journal from time to time? Because although the journal would be my toons, she wouldn’t be who she is without her family(guild) which will most assuredly be SAN. 🙂  So, flood me with your thoughts and advice, SAN members and avid readers! I call to you for you help and opinions!

Until next time!

Shame on me

03/18/2010 at 9:27 PM (Rants, WoW) (, , , )

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!

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!
