Nov 16th 2011 11:24AM I'm an achievement whore who was recovering from a spinal injury during the summer, so I really had nothing better to do. Watching tv shows on DVD and grinding achievements was pretty much the name of the game.
As is, I am short three artifacts for my last two achievements (damn dwarf digsites...), created 20 rares, over 100 commons, and have two rares sitting incomplete. Needless to say I burned myself out a few months ago, but my shaman alt is getting close to using the Nifflevar Bearded Axe, so I suppose I could finish that off.
Oct 28th 2011 11:31AM I recently rolled one of each class, the majority of them DPS because they were levelling through questing. While I enjoy playing them all, I have found my holy paladin to be delightful enough to be my first 85 alt, and my melee DPS all close on her heels.
I'm the default guild retro raid tank on my main (feral DPS in current raid gear) because I can easily tank anything pre-Cata with my gear enchanted and gemmed for kitty as long as I run with my bear spec. Our raid group has plenty of tanks, but few melee DPS, so my role is pretty locked down for current tier.
I wouldn't mind getting into current content tanking, but I really do love being a kittycow and I get a lot more flexibility in my raid utility. In my current incarnation I get all sorts of fun challenges that the other DPS in group (including the other token melee) couldn't handle, thanks to my ability to off-tank or toss out a few life saving Rebirths or Tranquilities.
Oct 13th 2011 11:22AM Thanks to a recent extended sick leave from work (never injure your spine, it sucks), I spent the summer months filling my alt ranks to the breaking point. On my home server, I have officially rolled ten toons and each time I create one I follow the same pattern.
1. What class don't I have? Roll one of the ones left.
2. Can that class be a Tauren? If yes, it's a Tauren. If no, well.... I guess it could be... something else...
3. Pick a name I like from old fiction projects. Done.
As it stands, I have six Tauren (4 male, 2 female), two Forsaken (1 male, 1 female), one goblin (female), and one troll (female). The Forsaken female (priest) would have been a Tauren, but I rolled her with a friend who wanted to be a Forsaken warlock. I might forgive him for that one day, but I am unsure yet.
And I too will chime in that Tauren males have fantastic butts. And shoulders. And arms.
Sep 7th 2011 2:03AM I just put together a full Genesis set thanks to the repeatable quests for rep. And I must say.... dear god, what were they thinking?
For reference, my druid is a white Tauren male. He looks like some sort of bizarre knock-off Power Ranger/Space Minotaur.
Sep 4th 2011 3:23PM Finally a public acknowledgement of the AWESOMENESS of Taurens. I have six of them, and I love them all.
Jul 29th 2011 1:21PM My guildmate and I discovered that the arakkoa form from the Time-Lost Figurine persists while mounted on an Argent tournament mount, except there is not proper animation for a mounted birdman. Which means you end up standing on top of the mount and waving your lance around like a crazy person when you joust.
As well the brazier of the dancing flame effect can be used after mounting a Sandstone drake, so your rider is a fiery draenei!
Using size modifiers is lots of fun while combined with the sandstone drake. One of my guildmates always has a stack of Noggenfogger to make himself tiny, and I habitually use my Vrykul drinking horn to become huge. He'll turn into a tiny drake, and I'll turn into a huge tauren and catch a ride. It looks like his little wings are struggling underneath my massive frame.
Jul 23rd 2011 12:49PM I used to cycle through my collection until recently, when I acquired my favourite pet.
It's a red balloon! Tied to my big burly tauren wrist! That is in turn tied to my forepaw in shapeshift form!
Tank + red balloon = no need for raid marker!
Jul 12th 2011 3:32PM See, my hearth is set to Undercity. It's left over from when I was doing Loremaster of EK, and once Cata hit I just left it. I've never had Orgrimmar as my hearth, prior to that it was Dalaran, Shattrath, or Thunder Bluff.
Orgrimmar is just too busy. Besides, I've got two of the teleport to Org cloaks, there's a convenient zeppelin just outside UC, and if I'm really in a pinch I druid hearth to Moonglade and just fly.
My guildies think it's so weird, until we need to go to EK and I'm there in a flash to summon everyone.
The other weird thing I always do on my druid is jump before casting flight form. I don't know why, I've always done it. It's like I'm jumping up into the sky...
Jun 13th 2011 1:20PM Go for it! It's a ton of fun. And it can include lower level players as well, as long as they qualify to get into the dungeon you choose.
It's one of the best ways we have of testing how new guildies will fit in with the rest of us. :D
