Mar 29th 2012 8:11PM These are all snazzy manly outfits, kudos Anne! But as a woman I play all female toons, and prefer a different type of "robeless" gear. My troll priest is absolutely smashing in her black mageweave transmog set. I regularly get whistles from my guildies as I run around healing them in TB. Now if I could just find something that makes my Tauren warrior not look like a cow in full metal armor :(
Mar 29th 2012 7:46PM Congrats to all! As a mom of 4 and grammy of one, I agree you need to enjoy them while they are little and you can still squeeze their cheeks without getting dirty looks.
On the good side, if you plan it right they can grow up and be a General in your guild, as is my youngest.
Mar 29th 2012 7:28PM My husband, 11 year old daughter and I all play together and run a horde guild together on Grizzly Hills. I'm not sure it makes us any smarter (I can hope), but it certainly makes us more understanding of each other.
me: "ok guys, supper's ready"
11 year old: "almost done with this dungeon"
me: "ok hun, finish up quick and hearth and do your repairs and vendoring after dinner."
11 year old: "yes mom."
Life is good :)
Mar 9th 2012 6:41AM Ahhh the noob days! Oh, I can be a cow? I'll be a hunter cause that sounds cool. I had never played any game before (none, not one... as a 40ish woman it isn't really that surprising) so it took me some time to figure out what these yellow exclamation points were over random other cow's heads. I wandered around the Tauren starting area for ages, not having a clue that I needed to move on to Bloodhoof Village. We could get pets at lvl 10 back then, but I think I got to 12 before I realized other hunters had pets. I think I found Thunder Bluff around then too.
Don't even ask about talent points. I must have leveled to at least 50 before I figured those out. And stats on armor? I think I was wearing half intellect cloth most of the time, because it looked like a pretty dress on my cow.
I had never heard of a guild. When I got my first invite, I thought it might be a cult, and declined. After a while I realized everyone else in TB had another name under theirs (guild name... ooo those evil cults) and figured out it might not be that bad. I think I joined a guild around level 40, and had this image of my guild master as a gaming God, all knowledgeable and all seeing. I see him around Org all these years later... he doesn't remember me, I was afraid to talk... all those green comments on the bottom left of my screen were confusing.
When I figured out there was another continent on the right side of the map if you click out I was shocked! This place is twice as big? Then someone asked me "do you have Burning Crusade?" What's that, and maybe I better buy it.
I have improved since then, at least a little. I've managed to level 4 85's, and now understand things like talent tree builds and appropriate gear stats. My husband and I run our own social/leveling guild, where noobs are always encouraged to ask questions, and we all offer our help without laughing. At least not openly... and if we snicker a little bit, not on vent of course, we're partly laughing at the memory of ourselves doing the same thing once upon a time.
Mar 8th 2012 10:05AM I too spent well over a year (when the egg had a 7 day hatch time) buying those darn eggs from the Oracles, hoping for the green proto drake and being disappointed time and time again. My husband got his on his warrior main in a couple months, and then had the nerve to get one on his priest alt as well, while I tried in vain. I was so elated when I finally got the drake, but at the same time I felt lost! What to do now?
Grinding the Molten Front to get my Flameward Hyppogryph was just a tedious bore.
Then camping Deepholm for Aeonaxx almost made me start biting my fingernails again. But I think that one was the most rewarding... showing off the Phosphorescent Stone Drake to my very obviously jealous guildies was the best!
Gratz on the Fiery Warhorse! Hmmm, maybe I will have to start soloing Kara....
