May 18th 2011 5:03PM YIKES. Can't believe I forgot HT, Nourish and Innervate!
I'm updating my blog post accordingly. Thanks Quorniya for catching that!
Jan 5th 2011 9:50AM Elizabeth - namesake (and yeah, no accented letters, woo!)
Lizziã - matches my BFF's nickname, Lillia
Reura - randomized
Therdys - randomized and changed a letter
Saeberwing - I don't remember, but thought it sounded cool
I tend to use the randomizer to generate a name and then change a letter or two to make it sound better to me. Simple, but it works. :D
Oct 29th 2010 4:24PM Crap, supposed to be in reply to Jimbo.
But I also wanted to add (after re-reading): The GM and officers were not *my* RL friends... They are the RL friends of my brother-in-law. If you actually read my comment, you would have seen that.
Also, I *did* put "jerky-guy" on ignore. Again, if you actually ready my comment, you would have seen that, too.
tl;dr: Maybe you should read a comment in full before going on a rant that blames the victim.
Oct 29th 2010 4:13PM Clarification: There was an officer online when "jerky-guy" verbally/virtually thrashed at me. Her response when I told her what happened *and I quote* ":("
It's very easy to be an armchair commentator to dismiss my experience as my own doing (because that's what you just did with your "YOUR CHOICES" comment -- why are you blaming the victim?) when you've not been in this guild with these people and had someone come out of nowhere (who, I might add, never talked to me in guild chat prior to this incident) and be point-blank rude.
And why in the world would I chase people down when I've been ignored for practically my entire time in that guild? Or what would tell you that I would have even gotten a response?
Oct 28th 2010 5:29PM You can resize the raid unit frames from the Interface > Raid Frames options. There's sliders available, but you have to be in a raid to see the changes (or be in a party and have your party frames set to be like raid frames). :)
Oct 28th 2010 8:50AM Only recently have I gotten better at playing WoW -- I used to be a noob; no dungeons, no raids...only questing with a few people. I was going along my merry way questing and leveling my shaman. I have never been a hardcore gamer (and really didn't play games before WoW), so I was not a raider and didn't have that goal and/or mindset.
I used to be in a guild managed by my husband's brother's real life best friend (say that 3x fast!) and a few other of his friends. We were having a good time. Then the guild master wanted to get into raiding. As I said, I was a noob and never really played games before, so I had no idea what to do. Also, given that I work a full time job (and had to drive over an hour to get to work at the time) and finish my degrees, I didn't have a lot of time for WoW. The guild master would always say, "I love helping people" or "If you need help, just ask." Well I would ask. And get ignored. The guild master was too busy helping the same people over and over. When Kara came out, the guild master asked if I would ever want to go. I said "Sure!" He mentioned something about getting attuned (which I had no idea what that meant!). Needless to say, I never got attuned. Soon after that, my husband and I took a break from WoW. We were tired of being ignored in our guild.
We came back a few months later and I skeptically rejoined the same guild. It was alright for awhile -- until...
One day I was talking in guildchat with some guildies about needing to get some money (for something or other like flying I think) and one of the guild members basically berated me for wasting my time leveling professions and whatnot and "wasting" my gold on other non-flying stuff. He said everything just short of calling me names. He even whispered me saying something like "Why are you causing me to be mean to you?" I was so shocked and irritated and frustrated with the guild and this guy that I gquit all of my characters right then and there. He continued to whisper me about how I was blowing it out of proportion (maybe I was, but at that point I was actually crying *for real*). I put him on ignore.
Later, when I was telling my brother-in-law (who's best friend is the guild master) about what happened, his response was "so-n-so is just a jerk". I thought.."If he's going to be allowed to be such a jerk to people then good riddance."
The only thing I regret about that whole situation is that the guild master, his gf and some other people I thought were my friends now barely talk to me.
Oct 25th 2010 1:44PM Dwarf shaman! XD
Oct 21st 2010 9:55AM I should add: The first time (and everytime) I watch the Wrathgate cinematic and Alexstrasza & the Red Dragonflight flying in and cleansing everything... It makes me cry. It's so emotional to watch the dying succumb to the poison clouds and then the music! That music haunts me. I'm even teary-eyed just replaying it in my head.
Oct 21st 2010 9:50AM Probably last night when I got the Headless Horseman's mount. I literally screamed and my husband fussed at me for scaring him. XD RNG really hates me sometimes, so I'm always amazed at my luck.
Of course, up until last night, it was when I went to Valgarde Keep the first time. That boat ride into the tunnel was pretty stunning.
Oct 12th 2010 8:51AM Woo Hoo!
