Apr 12th 2011 10:36AM Seriously. That's the only scary movie that literally made me close my eyes at one point.
I also watched Sanctum when it was in theaters and that reiterated the fact that I will NEVER step foot in a cave.
And I won't lie, I got anxiety looking at this picture and get really anxious and nervous when playing in caves in the game or any game really...
Apr 11th 2011 12:40PM When I brought my worgen into Westfall to level and saw Old Blanchy was dead I sat there and /mourned for like five minutes.
Whoever came up with that story line clearly needs to go find their soul.
Apr 11th 2011 12:18PM When that quest first came out I sat there for two days trying to get the sunflower pet because I was having issues with going anywhere else and I'm a pet collector. So after the two days my subscription expired and I didn't pick the game up again or buy the XP until February.
I had actually FORGOTTEN about the quest! Silly me.
I went back and knocked it out in like two seconds - they had to have nerfed it or something!
Apr 11th 2011 9:03AM There were so many things that I was so excited for, but I wasn't playing when Cata came out. I picked it up a couple of months ago and I feel like I've barely touched on ANY of the things I was excited about.
I FINALLY got my main to 85, but I haven't done any dungeons. I feel like there's so much quest material that I haven't even touched - I've barely stepped foot in like three zones.
I haven't done a rated BG, I haven't leveled any of my professions (with the exception of extremely slowly progressing archaeology), I haven't done any daily quests - I really haven't even gone around and explored everything as much as I thought I would.
I can't figure out if it's just that I've lost interest in the game or if my list of "things to do" is so daunting that I can't bring myself to log in because when I do I just idle around trying to figure out which task I want to accomplish.
It's all really depressing.
Apr 4th 2011 10:34AM I have a small collection of White Kitten Carriers. I've got about 10 of them.
I used to host a trivia type game for my old guild and would give them out as prizes, so I used to have a lot more...I would actually camp out for Little Timmy to spawn to get them, but eventually I stopped doing the trivia nights (it was a lot of hardwork that went underappreciated) and then eventually left the guild so I'm left with that small stash.
I have intentions of putting them up on the neutral AH and sometimes I do - but it seems like every time I do sell one, I run into Little Timmy and I can't help but to buy his homeless kitten. :)
In general I'm kind of a hoarder - mats, bags, gear, pets, mounts, whatever. I do have a lot of pride in my bank toon because I have such a huge collection of various mats - it's nice for helping out new players or friends leveling up alts.
Mar 29th 2011 10:56AM Grizzly Hills hands down, it's my favorite zone. I'm not quite a lumberjane, but if it's a profession I'd have to take up to live there, I'd do it. A nice little log home with my lumberjack, a cat and a couple of horses.
Then maybe I'd want a little beach home on the coast of Tanaris or Booty Bay, although I think all the goblins in Booty Bay would get annoying trying to sell me all their crap all the time.
Mar 24th 2011 3:59PM This is true. If I happened to have run into someone who's completely new to the game, I hook them up with some bags and gold, and help them (usually what brings me to them anyway).
I was lucky enough to start playing under the wings of an experiened player who did the same for me and I know if I hadn't had the luxury I probably would've gotten frustrated and stopped playing after a month. Granted it's far easier for new players now than it was two years ago, but I feel I should pass on the goodness. :)
Mar 24th 2011 9:46AM I held out on hitting 80 on my first toon. I had been playing the game since right after Wrath came out and I think it took something like 6 months to get to 80. I had lost my WoW mentor (my boyfriend broke up with me), I wasn't in a guild and I had a very small handful of in game friends, and that bar from 79 to 80 filled EXTREMELY slowly. I tried really hard to just avoid getting XP, I did a crap ton of BGs for a good month before I finally bit the bullet.
I was just scared about what was next. I had NO clue what end game play was, I knew nothing about raiding and heroics and it was all really intimidating. Eventually I just threw myself into it like I did with BGs when I was in the 40s, and had a lot of fun becoming a pretty awesome holy priest.
I stopped playing right before Cata came out and left behind a great group of friends, because of technical issues. I started playing about two months ago and my friends are really anxious for me to get to 85, but I'm taking FOREVER. I'm going through simply questing, I haven't step foot in a new dungeon because I'M SCARED! I'm afraid I'm going to suck hardcore at healing and no one will want to be my friend anymore, lol
So needless to say I've been 84 for about three weeks now and am just enjoying the ride, I'm in no rush. Ultimately, I hold stuff off because I'm afraid to continue. I hope that when I finally hit 85 and finally accept my guildies offers to go into dungeons with them I will get that gratification I had when I was 80.
Mar 21st 2011 9:25AM Connections problems ARE embarassing. When they were releasing the pre Cata patches I was having all kinds of connections problems in really specific zones, and convieniently one of those zones was Icecrown. A random grouping of my friends were trying to go down LK and they'd always throw me an invite - thankfully they were a really understanding group of people. Granted I'm a healer so they we're always like, "It'd take forever to find someone to replace you anyway" but there were a couple of times where they waited a good 20 minutes for me to get myself situated and back to a spot where I wouldn't crash.
It actually go to a point where I just wouldn't run back, someone would have to rez me when we wiped.
I always felt so terrible holding everyone up - I actually stopped playing for a while because I didn't understand the issues I was having and Blizzard was no help. I've since found a fix for it and haven't had issues since *knock on wood*.
Mar 20th 2011 8:16AM Sounds definitely plays a big role in my game play. I can't ever just turn it completely off when playing, I have to at least keep the effects on. I'm a big PVPer so sounds I listen for are mostly because I'm keeping myself on guard in a battleground or out in the world.
The sound of someone dimounting - I immediately tense up when I hear that noise by me when I'm out and about. I know someone is by me and I know that they dismounted for a reason: I'm either near something really great or they're looking for a fight.
Stealthing - for obvious reasons, another thing that perks my ears up, even if it's a ally.
The drum noise you get when you get full aggro of a mob.
My PoM chime! I love hearing that go off because I know it's still out there and I know it's still working. And no I don't think it's loud enough.
And I always click on baby murlocs when I'm near them because I love their gurgle.
