Feb 16th 2008 11:25PM How 'bout "the Guys' Girl" -- one of the very few girls in a guild who's got most of the guys wrapped around her little finger. She may not be the best, but she's such a flirt both in Vent and out that she's pretty much guaranteed a raid spot, gear, etc.
Oh, and if another female is discovered in the guild she immediately perceives them as a threat and proceeds to bash on, put down, and ignore her. It's HER guild, and those are HER guys, and she'll be d@mn3d if she lets another woman get involved!
Generally plays a druid or a hunter.
Feb 14th 2008 10:40AM My SO and will probably be farming Strat, doing WSG on our twinks, or leveling our newest alts together. Possibly raiding SS, since we're both big fans of world PvP, especially when teamed up.
This weekend he's taking me to a hibachi grill, as a belated birthday/Valentine's day thing, then probably to a bar to celebrate the fact that I recently turned 21. Hehe.
Feb 13th 2008 10:11AM My main is a hunter, and I prefer PvP over instances/raids -- so guess what. I pretty much HAVE to use hotkeys.
Since I play on a laptop and just can't move fast enough with the touchpad, I bought a wireless mouse and quickly learned to do most of my movement with that alone. Before long I decided that strafing by holding the right mouse key and the A or D keys was just too precious-second-consuming, and got a 5-button mouse. Now I can run, turn, and strafe with my mouse alone, which frees up my keyboard for all the abilities I need fast. It's so much more fluid, and makes PvP a hundred times easier, even if it takes a little training to make it natural.
Feb 12th 2008 8:53PM No... nonono... Blizzard, how COULD you?!
*rocks in a corner* The birdies are coming to get me...
Jan 15th 2008 2:32AM What really bothers me about this whole thing is not the fact that I had wanted the wolf myself (though admittedly, I did) but that this means Blizzard blatantly lied to us. No intention to make the wolf non-tamable? Giving it to hunters on the PTR?
And to add insult to injury, they just "fix" the whole thing at random, no warning. It would've been nice if they'd at least warned us that the wolf would no longer be tameable as of, say, next maintenance day or something, rather than just, "Oh, by the way, the ghost wolf is no longer tamable. So sorry! Hahaha... not."
Jan 8th 2008 12:59PM Both my boyfriend and I are very firmly Horde-only, so that pretty much eliminates any faction tension. And the fact that we're both very into the game at times, and very not at other times makes it easy for one or the other to understand the occasional, "Hey, can we schedule the movie around this raid tonight?" or "I don't really feel like playing right now -- I'll slaughter gnomes with you some other time, okay?"
For me, the real difficulty is when I'm happily playing, say, my warrior, and something happens where it'd be far better for me to be on my shaman or my hunter. And then I'm stuck trying to decide whether I should log off and log onto a different character, risking missing the opportunity that's there, or just deal with the situation. Sometimes it feels like I miss out on a lot of fun stuff, just because I'm playing the wrong alt at the wrong time. But that's probably just me, since I still manage to see and do a lot of cool stuff.
Jan 6th 2008 9:09AM I'm getting more than a little tired of Alliance deciding that just because they can't pull it together and win BGs, they're going to sit around and boycott them and whine about it. That makes complete sense -- Blizzard will definitely see them and decide to let them auto-win, because apparently they won't suck it up and do it themselves.
At the same point, I'm tired of Horde constantly complaining about this. We know already! Call them as many names as you like, but that won't get them back into BGs if they're set on their "we can't do this, we quit!" attitudes. No point in beating the dead horse -- it's old now. Really old.
But it would seem I'm one of the few who feels this way, as the "boycott" (can you really call it that if it's not going to change anything?) seems to be working and people are going full-out to complain about it.
Dec 30th 2007 10:36AM Rogue -- just irritates me. Sneaking has no appeal, hitting the same three or four buttons is boring, and I've never gotten high enough level to do anything of interest.
Paladin -- never liked playing the class (though a number of my friends like it quite a lot), nor do I have any desire to play a blood elf (and Alliance is just out of the question). I'll take shaman over pally any day.
Druid -- I have no idea why, but I've never managed to get a druid above 20. It's like I get cat form, get excited about it... and then all the fun's over and I don't care anymore. Weird, but true.
Dec 24th 2007 9:27AM Merry Winter Christmas Veil Eve! Or something.
