Choose My Adventure: RIP Andrenorton

Choose the adventures of the WoW.com staff as we level our characters in <It came from the Blog> on US Zangarmarsh-H.

Matthew Rossi says he has stalled on his mage and would like the readers to choose his new class. We also need to know where to go at level 30, since Annephora is already there. But first, here's the remaining schedule for the week:
  • Fox Van Allen as Foxlight, the blood elf paladin: Friday, 8 p.m. EDT
  • Michael Gray as Grayfields, the tauren hunter, Adam Holisky as Adammentat, the tauren druid, and Gregg Reece as Yakkowakko, the orc warlock, will be making appearances as they can.
I've listed the zones for 30 to 35 questing along with how much we think they will change in Cataclysm.

Where should we go after level 30?
33 (0.4%)
Thousand Needles (heavy)1739 (23.6%)
Arathi Highlands (light)659 (8.9%)
Stranglethorn Vale (heavy)3363 (45.6%)
Alterac Mountains (light)296 (4.0%)
Desolace (moderate)1283 (17.4%)


Rossi's poll is after the break.

Choose My Adventure: It's not my fault!

Choose the adventures of the WoW.com staff as we level our characters in <It came from the Blog> on US Zangarmarsh-H.

I want to make something perfectly clear: I did not choose death by Bieber for Selfloathius. You readers did. I only posted the video on Monday in case there were people (like me) who have never heard an entire song by the kid with all the hair combed into his face. I still haven't, by the way. I couldn't make it through the video. But I digress. Here's the schedule:
  • Michael Sacco as Sahko, the orc warlock: Wednesday, 7 p.m. EDT
  • Elizabeth Harper as Faience, the troll shaman, and Robin Torres as Robinemia, the undead mage: Wednesday, 11 p.m. EDT
  • Amy Schley as Patent, the troll rogue: Thursday, 10 p.m. EDT
  • Fox Van Allen as Foxlight, the blood elf paladin: Friday, 8 p.m. EDT
  • Matthew Rossi as Andrenorton, the troll mage, Michael Gray as Grayfields, the tauren hunter, Adam Holisky as Adammentat, the tauren druid, and Gregg Reece as Yakkowakko, the orc warlock, will be making appearances as they can.
Turn the page for the continuing sagas of Annephora and Selfloathius.

Choose My Adventure: Warlock advice and stories

Choose the adventures of the WoW.com staff as we level our characters in <It came from the Blog> on US Zangarmarsh-H.

Yes, that's Selfloathius jumping to his doom. Yes, we have his story this week. We also have a story from Andrenorton and some advice from Dominic Hobbs for Yakkowakko, Sahko and Selfloathius. But first, the remaining schedule for this week:
  • Michael Sacco as Sahko, the orc warlock: Wednesday, 7 p.m. EDT
  • Elizabeth Harper as Faience, the troll shaman, and Robin Torres as Robinemia, the undead mage: Wednesday, 11 p.m. EDT
  • Amy Schley as Patent, the troll rogue: Thursday, 10 p.m. EDT
  • Fox Van Allen as Foxlight, the blood elf paladin: Friday, 8 p.m. EDT
  • Matthew Rossi as Andrenorton, the troll mage, Michael Gray as Grayfields, the tauren hunter, Adam Holisky as Adammentat, the tauren druid, and Gregg Reece as Yakkowakko, the orc warlock, will be making appearances as they can

Choose My Adventure: One of each

Choose the adventures of the WoW.com staff as we level our characters in <It came from the Blog> on US Zangarmarsh-H.

We now have one of each kind of warlock. Selfloathius will be affliction, Sahko will study demonology and Yakkowakko will be all about destruction. Mr. Hobbs will have advice for our young 'locks on Wednesday. In the meantime, here is our schedule for the week:
  • Christian Belt, as Selfloathius, blood elf warlock: Monday, 11:30 p.m. EDT
  • Anne Stickney as Annephora, the troll warrior, will be on Tuesday at 1 a.m. EDT (which is Monday at 11 p.m. Zangarmarsh time)
  • Michael Sacco as Sahko, the orc warlock: Wednesday, 7 p.m. EDT
  • Elizabeth Harper as Faience, the troll shaman, and Robin Torres as Robinemia, the undead mage: Wednesday, 11 p.m. EDT
  • Amy Schley as Patent, the troll rogue: Thursday, 10 p.m. EDT
  • Fox Van Allen as Foxlight, the blood elf paladin: Friday, 8 p.m. EDT
  • Matthew Rossi as Andrenorton, the troll mage, Michael Gray as Grayfields, the tauren hunter, Adam Holisky as Adammentat, the tauren druid, and Gregg Reece as Yakkowakko, the orc warlock, will be making appearances as they can
The poll with methods for Selfloathius's demise will be on Friday, so you still have time to suggest more options in the comments and vote up your favorites.

Choose My Adventure: You can never have enough orc warlocks

Choose the adventures of the WoW.com staff as we level our characters in <It came from the Blog> on US Zangarmarsh-H.

So. What's with you people and orc warlocks? You voted that both Michael Sacco and Gregg Reece roll orc warlocks for their adventurers. Last week we had no WoW.com staff playing warlocks or orcs in our guild, and now we have two. When the polls go up on Friday for Christian Belt's character, you may want to be more creative. That's right -- Archmage Pants will be joining Choose My Adventure, because you demanded it.

In other news, we'll be questing in Stonetalon Peak this week, when not crawling dungeons. And we have more polls today because Foxlight turned 10 on Friday and wants you to choose his talent tree and professions. But first, this week's schedule:
  • Elizabeth Harper as Faience, the troll shaman, and Robin Torres as Robinemia, the undead mage: Monday and Wednesday, 11 p.m. to midnight EDT
  • Michael Gray as Grayfields, the tauren hunter, will be making appearances as he can this week.
  • Amy Schley as Patent, the troll rogue will also be making appearances as she can.
  • Matthew Rossi as Andrenorton, his new troll mage: some time Saturday.
  • Adam Holisky as Adammentat, the tauren druid, will be making appearances as he can.
  • Anne Stickney as Annephora, the troll warrior, will be on Tuesday at 1 a.m. EDT (which is Monday at 11 p.m. Zangarmarsh time).
  • Fox Van Allen as Foxlight, the blood elf paladin: Friday, 8 p.m. EDT.

WoW Rookie: 10 ways to meet other new players

New around here? WoW Rookie points WoW's newest players to the basics of a good start in the World of Warcraft. See all our collected tips, tricks and how-to's at WoW.com's WoW Rookie Guide.

Come out, come out, wherever you are ... We know you're out there leveling! The dungeon finder feature isn't the only way to meet new and leveling players – in fact, it's one of the worst, since you'll only occasionally be paired off with another player from your home realm. Today's WoW makes it possible to scuttle from the auction house to the dungeon finder without forming any lasting relationships to speak of at all. Here at WoW Rookie, we're all about enjoying the journey, rather than racing for the finish line. Let's go over the best ways, then, to join up with folks you can adventure with along the way. In ascending order:

10. Hit the dungeon finder. We know, we just said the dungeon finder is not a great way to make friends. It's not. That said, we've heard more than one tale of players who transferred realms to play with friends they met through the dungeon finder. You're more likely to find a compatible group for the length of a single evening than a permanent partnership that persists over the levels -- but hey, it could happen.

Choose My Adventure: Schedule for week 4

Choose the adventures of the WoW.com staff as we level our characters in <It came from the Blog> on US Zangarmarsh-H.

Well there was no suspense about the vote for the last polls. Silverpine Forest and the Dungeon Finder were both ahead early and stayed that way the entire weekend. Robinemia has promised to stop whining, but keep in mind that she is Forsaken and therefore bad at both keeping promises and not being emo. Here is this week's schedule:
  • Elizabeth Harper as Faience, the troll shaman, and Robin Torres as Robinemia, the undead mage: Monday and Thursday, 11 p.m. to midnight EDT
  • Michael Gray as Grayfields, the tauren hunter, will be making appearances as he can this week.
  • Amy Schley as Patent, the troll rogue: Thursday, 10-11 p.m. EDT
  • Matthew Rossi as Andrenorton, his new troll mage: Saturday, 3-4 p.m. EDT
  • Adam Holisky as Adammentat, the tauren druid, will be making appearances as he can.
Robinemia is already at The Sepulcher in her latest outfit. See you tonight!

Choose My Adventure: Should we stay or should we move?

Choose the adventures of the WoW.com staff as we level our characters in <It came from the Blog> on US Zangarmarsh-H.

Robinemia speaks:
I am tired of the Barrens. The constant orange glare is annoying. Also, I was promised something fun called "Barrens Chat" and was hoping to show off my wit and fashion sense to the locals while participating. Barrens Chat has been very quiet and most disappointing. I request that our questing grounds be changed to the cool environs of Silverpine Forest. Of course, I will abide by the majority vote.
The polls for this week are about Robinemia's request and what dungeon to visit, if any. Also, don't forget that Gurubashi Beatdown II is this Sunday. You still have time to level up a DK to participate. The polls are after the break.
