Oct 18th 2009 8:04AM I'm pretty happy with myself, but if I could change anything, I'd probably make myself taller. I'm 5'6'' and my brother who is 4 years younger than me is at least 6'.
Also, my name has 24 letters and two hyphens in it and it's as unusual as it gets. I have the same name as the former UN secretary-general. We're both from Ghana and I live in Sweden. The first thing people ask when I tell them my name is "oh you mean like coffee?". It's getting really old. I'm 27, lived in Sweden since I was 1 year old so just imagine how many times I've been asked that question. Also in school, whenever we'd have a new teacher and they were going through the names, I'd always wait for the pause and just raise my hand and say "yeah, that's me". Everybody would always just laugh and I'd have to explain the meaning and origin cause it's so "interresting" with such an unusual name. Still, I really really love my name and wouldn't change it for anything. I was born with it and when my time comes, I'll proudly die with it.
Oct 3rd 2009 5:18PM Later started a female priest to represent Priestess of the Moon, a male rogue (warriors look boring and I like to be able to stealth) when I found out that Warglaives of Azzinoth were attainable (my version of Illidan/Demon Hunter) and a female hunter to represent archers and huntresses. All night elves ofc. Will have a female night elf mage later on, just cause mages look awesome. I have a Belf mage cause I wanted to try out horde but he's been stuck at lvl 63 for a whole year now (will most likely get deleted). I'll start from scratch as a Nelf mage instead of faction changing cause I want to relearn how to play the class (and relvl as a Nelf now that Auberdine/Darkshore and Ashenvale have been altered).
Oct 3rd 2009 5:06PM I played Warcraft III for several years and was always a night elf. after I finished the campaigns I never played anything other than night elves and my favorite unit (except the Warden and Demon Hunter) is still Druid of the Claw. I just loved hearing them say "I'm awake, I'm awake" so when I decided to try out WoW, not knowing anything about the game at all. Nothing about classes or races, I saw that night elf was an option so I chose that and low and behold... the druid class. been playing for almost two years and my feral druid is my everything.
Sep 16th 2009 11:04AM Awesome story. Pretty much how I started tanking too.
My very first char, a druid and still my main and absolute favorite. Think I was lvl 21 or so at the time when I was asked to tank the Deadmines. Didn't know what tank meant either but I said sure. As soon as I got in there I went cat form and went in. Had never seen an elite before so I wasn't prepared for the beating that was soon to come. After the first wipe they asked me what the hell I was doing. I didn't answer so they told me I have to go bear. Sure, I thought and went back inside. They prompted me to go first and so I did, took a few hits and noticed that I'm hardly doing any damage. I shift back into cat and we wipe again. Now they ask why I went back into cat form, so I told them I don't do any damage in bear. This was a great group of guys so they all lolled and told me very politely that I'm the tank. I'm the one who takes damage and they're the ones doing it.
They explained the taunt button as well.
More than an hour and several wipes later, van Cleef was down and I've been tanking ever since.
Sep 9th 2009 7:46AM I meant Frostmourne, not Ashbringer. Dag nab it where's the delete or edit button?
Sep 9th 2009 7:33AM Exactly what Charlie said. If the Lich King dies, he's dead and that includes both Arthas and Ner'zhul. They're both dead, end of story! The Ashbringer is just a regular sword now and doesn't hold the spirit of anything or anyone so who ever picks it up will wield as any other sword.

Sep 7th 2009 10:47AM On worgen druids.
Lore suggests that worgens have a connection to Elune and that the ancient worgens summoned by Arugal and Velinde Starsong have a connection to the night elves and a secretive druidic order from Kalimdor's distant past, therefore explaining why the can be druids.
That worgens of Kalimdor's past were druids is fine, a secretive druidic order... Okey. How does that translate into allowing the worgens of Gilneas to be druids? These aren't the same worgens. The worgens of Gilneas are in essence human aren't they? Humans cursed with "worgenism" and I think most people would agree that human druids is an insane idea, so what's up with worgen druids? Where they taught druidism when they rejoined the alliance?

They shouldn't need to ask Jaina. Belf's are perfectly capable of teaching orcs arcane magic seeing as how humans learned it from them in the first place back before the scourge arrived and when they still called themselves high elves
Sep 7th 2009 9:36AM Can't believe nobody has mentioned the He-Man reference in Shattrath City.
