Choose My Adventure: To beta or not to beta

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

Are there goblin hunters who didn't name their crab pets Ghostcrawler? It seems to me that it should be the default name. It would save time. First schedule, then polls:
  • Fox Van Allen as Foxlight, the level 22 blood elf paladin: Friday, 8 p.m. EDT
  • Michael Sacco as Sahko, the orc warlock; Christian Belt, as Selfloathius, the level 16 blood elf warlock; Elizabeth Harper as Faience, the level 24 troll shaman; Matthew Rossi as Andrenorton, the level 17 troll mage; Michael Gray as Grayfields, the level 17 tauren hunter; and Gregg Reece as Sandwichdoc, the level 16 troll shaman, will be making appearances as they can.
Some of us will be playing our Zangarmarsh (US-PvE-H) characters, but some of us will be letting you choose what we do in the Cataclysm beta. The polls are after the break.

We'll talk about the polls after the break.

Choose My Adventure: I learned my lesson

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

First, the schedule:
  • Fox Van Allen as Foxlight, the blood elf paladin: Friday, 8 p.m. EDT
  • Michael Sacco as Sahko, the orc warlock; Christian Belt, as Selfloathius, the blood elf warlock; Elizabeth Harper as Faience, the troll shaman; Matthew Rossi as Andrenorton, the troll mage; Michael Gray as Grayfields, the tauren hunter; and Adam Holisky as Adammentat, the tauren druid, will be making appearances as they can
So anyway, I learned my lesson. Don't put anything that I want to do on a poll, because you'll vote against it. And don't put anything I don't want to do on a poll, because you'll vote for it. We have a few polls this week. Because <It came from the Blog> is a huge, friendly, helpful guild, we often have guardians to help us through tough situations. Fast, easy leveling is kind of built in. So please vote for what you'd like to read about -- not what would make us level faster.

Choose My Adventure: Pet polls

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

I'm still sulking over the loss of my bunny ears. Disappointed! Blah blah blah, here's the schedule:
  • Fox Van Allen as Foxlight, the blood elf paladin: Friday, 8 p.m. EDT
  • Michael Sacco as Sahko, the orc warlock; Christian Belt, as Selfloathius, the blood elf warlock; Elizabeth Harper as Faience, the troll shaman; 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 comment poll from last week was vanity pets, so I've put the polls up this week for the final results. There were really only enough choices for me and Selfloathius, however. So please suggest more WoW.com staff character/vanity pet matchups. Vote after the break.

Note: The above video is me showing off Grunty and The Spousal Unit's Zergling, with interjections from The Spawn.

Polls end Sunday and results will be up on Monday as usual.

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%)

Choose My Adventure: Polls for Christian Belt

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

Foxlight is now even more aptly named, now that you have chosen holy for his talent tree. You also voted for jewelcrafting/mining, so he will be making pretty, sparkly things. But, while most of you find Fox Van Allen's shirtless pally fabulous, you're really here to vote on the class and race of WoW.com's prom queen, Christian Belt. You'll also get to vote on the questing zone for next week, if you so choose. But first, the schedule:
  • Matthew Rossi as Andrenorton, his new troll mage: Some time Saturday
  • Fox Van Allen as Foxlight, the blood elf paladin: Saturday, 8 p.m. EDT
  • Amy Schley as Patent, the troll rogue, Adam Holisky as Adammentat, the tauren druid, and Gregg Reece, the orc warlock, will be making appearances as they can.
The polls are after the break.

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.
  • Michael Sacco as Sahko, the orc warlock: Wednesday, 7 p.m. EDT.
  • Gregg Reece, the orc warlock, will be making appearances as he can.
Turn the page to vote on the shirtless paladin's polls.
