Sep 2nd 2010 7:42AM I talk openly about WoW with my friends, my co-workers, whoever. I read fantasy and sci-fi books and like Mass Effect better than CoD; I don't hide the nerd. These are simply things that I like, and whatever tag you wish to attribute to me don't matter simply because I like them.
That said, I don't run around pretending to cast Flash heal on little kids with skinned knees-- there's a limit.
May 29th 2010 2:50PM I play on Kalecgos and it's heavy Horde-side. We've had a couple guilds actually faction change from Alliance to Horde since it became available since it's almost a futile effort for them to do WG. They win it occasionally because people don't show up during the end of the week or in the wee hours of the morning. Overall, the battlegroup is focused more on Alliance dominance, but Kalecgos itself is pretty one-sided. This doesn't mean that we are jerks or gankers though (I'm Horde btw). I had more people ganking me during my leveling than I see Hordies ganking Alliance lowbies. My rule is that I won't gank unless I'm defending a city or they attack me first. I can sit and wait until someone decides they're going to get that warrior/priest/shaman/whatever and then do something about it, but from admission from the people who have xferred to Horde from Alliance, the Horde has more good players and more helpful people. Yes, we have the trolls and jerks, but most people know about them anyhow and dislike them.
Point is: It doesn't matter who plays what. It's down to personal decisions to make one faction or another "worse". Sometimes they tend to group...
May 16th 2010 5:54AM I just quit playing WoW two days ago and I'm already bored of having nothing to play. I should go and finish my scum-of-the-earth daughter character through Fallout 3 since I finished it with my son-of-god goody two-shoes boy character. I also have Dragon Age to finish but I think with spending so much time in the last couple years playing games like GTA, Fallout 3, Oblivion, and WoW I'm too spoiled by sandboxes to go back to such linear story lines, no matter how compelling they can be.
Jan 3rd 2010 8:06AM It went well enough. I didn't get it on all my characters because of other interests, but I did get it on my main so that I've only got Love Fool and Elder to get my Violet Drake! :D
Jan 3rd 2010 7:54AM I'm already working on it: Superstone the Insane.
So I guess I'll have to get my rogue to 55 for the lockboxes, even though I want a goblin rogue and not my current one.
Once I'm done with those, who knows?
I obviously have outside of game resolutions that I want, but being this is a WoW site, I figure that's what you're most interested in.
Dec 21st 2009 12:32AM A couple acquaintances of mine knew that I was a video game nerd, but I was more into console games at the time. They were telling me about WoW and that they all played. So a couple years ago before I started college in 2007, I had some money saved up from a job that I just left to go to school and decided to try it out since I had a bunch of time on my hands. I just got hooked. Most of the people who got me into it are still playing but I'm probably MORE into it than they are. :D
I have a co-worker right now who is an ex-player, and another who I'm telling that he should check it out but he keeps refusing because he's afraid how much he'll like it!
Dec 8th 2009 11:05AM LOL. Yea, probably me too.
Seriously though, I'll probably go check out the new totem art for Shamans. I've been leveling a Tauren (nothing new for me :( ), but I've been considering race-change because he's giant and bothersome to see around in halls. So we'll see what that's like.
After that? I'm going to go max my sons of hodir rep and send the shoulder enchants to my other 80s and run my priest through the new five mans on normal and heroic with some guildies (hopefully), and see what we're going to be farming for upgrades from now on.
Nov 30th 2009 3:56PM I found the best spot for killing turkeys on the first day, and if it weren't for people just running randomly around looking for them instead of finding a loop it would have been even easier. Here it is: Venomweb Vale in Tirisfal, just southeast of SM. Huge amount of turkeys in a loop and no one even looks there since they just run through the forest and hit all they can find.
Got the title on two characters and didn't feel like doing it on a third, but did get my cooking skill up to 342 within an hour or so (from 120), and got a couple neat hats for lowbies. The rogues weren't too bad to find.
I kinda liked the event overall.
Nov 2nd 2009 12:28AM I got "the Hallowed" on my main, my alt, and my DK.
Got the spell rings for my newly 80 holy pally, so those are good until I can get him into raids. Got him the helm for DPS and fun times with cackling.
Saw the mount drop twice. First time, the group asked if anyone had any alts that they wanted to get into it and only my DK was left. So on our sixth summon the mount drops and we lose to a druid. Ah, well.
Oct 25th 2009 11:15AM My favorite faction is the Forsaken.
I know, they're a player race so they're not terribly grindy, but as far as stories, leaders, atmosphere, and quests go, they are my favorite.
And, although I haven't really gotten into Sholazar with those two factions yet, I'm going to have to go with Oracles. Standing by the matron in Dalaran I saw the two or three Wolvar kids picking on the little Oracle and I couldn't not help out the underdog. I finished his quests around Northrend as quickly as possible and was delighted to get the curious Oracle hatchling pet as a reward.
