Excitingness in WoW

Posted in WoW with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , on October 31, 2010 by Tabathine

Recap! A lot has happened this last day and a half. Major MAJOR WoW stuff. Ok. Not even close to major. But each event got me really excited.

Firstly, I created a priest. I always said that priests were one of the few classes that I wasn’t enterested in. I didn’t dislike them, but I didn’t like them either. Then Davinna dueled a Discipline Priest for well over 20 minutes before we finally called it a tie, and that got my attention. The Call to Arms is Warsong Gulch, so it’s the perfect time to create an alt. And my lvl 12 rogue, who I so wish I was good at, was irritating me. I actually made my priest as a trash toon, meaning I had no intention of working to lvl her, and just play her when I’m bored. But it turns out I LOVE being a priest. It just fits. The HoT’s and DoT’s, the look, and even the name. For me, naming a toon of mine is a big thing. Usually, once I decided on a race and class, I will muse, often times for days, over a suitable name. This toon I dubbed Pualani with barely any thought. And she is well on her way to level 23! I can’t believe I created her only two days ago. I love WSG weekends.

Like My New Blog Banner?

Posted in WoW with tags , , , , , , , on October 28, 2010 by Tabathine

Well, this blog originally started out basically without a focus,or with a focus on everything; but clearly it is turning out to be a blog mainly pertaining to World of Warcraft. So I decided to make it a new banner header! I took some screen shots in-game, fired up my seldom used Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator software, and quite a few hours later (I was constantly being interrupted my Desperate Housewives, don’t judge)… Walah! I am quite proud. It turned out WAY better than I was expecting, although I might change the background, as I think I have seen another WoW blog who’s banner also had Crystalsong Forrest in the background. Any ideas on what might be a nice background spot? That’s not very populated?

This does not mean I am constricting myself to only World of Warcraft musings here. But if the shoes fits, I might as well, um… Ok, bad whatever you call it, analogy? To make my point I just want to say that I spent five minutes today watching a bird take a bath in a puddle on the side of the road. It was so fricken cute. This is another don’t judge moment. Anywhoo. I had fun playing with Adobe again, and I think I’ll figure out some more things I can do with it and WoW. And now back to my Desprate Housewives. Oh, and anyone have ideas for what TV series I should watch next on Hulu? I’ve already fished the Glee and House episodes they have 😉

Sure I Can Help You, But Are You Sure You Want Me To?

I have a thing for meeting people in World of Warcraft. Not just people, but RP, or Random People. People that just happen to answer a misstype of mine, or make an unusual comment in trade or general chat that I am compelled to answer. People that pique my interest. I have become good, long term (WoW wise) friends with many, while others fade into nothingness.

But my favorite RP is the newbie. Someone who is new to WoW. Maybe it’s because I had a pretty hard time figuring out the game when I first started and wish I had a me to guide me, or maybe it’s because it boosts my confidence that I actually know the game, therefor confirming to myself that I am no longer a noob. Whatever the reason, I love it when I find out that my newest RP is a newbie. And if they ask for the slightest bit of help advise wise, I give them a ton. And some bags. You wouldn’t know it, but not having something as simple as bag space can be a real pain in the arse. And, if they don’t ask for it, 5-10 pieces of gold. If they do ask for a bit of gold, I’ll give them 1/2 that amount and tell them to go buy a fishing pole. I don’t like being used as a bank, or an easy instance runner. But for the true newbie, thats not an issue, as most don’t know how to even use the AH to buy some bags.

Murocs! /Sob

Blizz hates hunters. And how do I know that? Well, the proof is in the armor. The Tier 9 helmet is bulky bulky bulky. Might work for a Orc, or one of those Dwarf guys, but not a blood elf like myself, and I bet those draenai people are not pleased either. And aren’t we hunters supposed to be stacking agility? To what purpose could two giant horns sticking forward from each side possibly have?

And as for the tier 10 helm? Looks like a rhino. With freaky glowing yellow eyes. the thing literally sticks like 2 feet out from our head!

Up Way Too Late

Posted in WoW with tags , , , , on October 22, 2010 by Tabathine

So it’s been a few days since my last post. Fine. more like a week. But I have come to the conclusion that all my posts need not be forever long. They can be short! And to the point? Herm. That could be a challege for me. I like length. Pictures! I shall enter more pictures.

Anywhoo, the topic for today: Why people stay up and play WoW, when really all they want to be doing is sleep. I know we all have done it. It’s late at night, and we are falling asleep at the keyboared, but for some reason, we refuse to log off. Continue reading

Yay! I Can play WoW Again! Erm… Now What?

Posted in WoW with tags , , , , , on October 17, 2010 by Tabathine

So I finally got my WoW back, after a frustrating week of it being broken. And I was more than excited to get back to playing, until I actually logged in. After saying hi to guildies and getting freaked out about having a shadow, I realized that I did not at all know how to even begin fixing Tabathine. She was missing almost all her spells, and my usually choke full bars were strangely empty. I couldn’t find my pets, vanity pets, or mounts, and why the hell was ‘j’ not bring up my guild tab?

Then a small part of my brain squeaked out ‘training’ amongst all the clutter, and thats where I went. My go-to-for-hunter-help website, warcrafthuntersunion.com, once again saved my arse, and I had Taba somewhat fixed up, although I was still having issues with all the blank space. in the action bars area. What do you mean I don’t need all four bars? I’m a hunter! I need ALL my bars filled!. Herm. No more need to put my aspects on them? Ok then. What? These spells are gone as well? Well, I guess I didn’t really use them. Continue reading

Another WoWless Day

Posted in Rants, WoW with tags , , on October 15, 2010 by Tabathine

Well, it’s getting easier to accept another WoW free day. Slightly. I still check my computer every 1/2 hour or so, hoping that by some miracle everything will be patched up and perfect. But it’s no longer the ARG! of 3 days ago, and more the resigned /sigh of one who has accepted her fate: my patch shall never download properly and I shall be forced to look at that downloading screen for eternity and beyond. Ok, at least for a few more days.

This week has been one of horror regarding World of Warcraft. I put off finding a ICC pug for Tabathine, my main, to run (Davinna,my alt, ran with our guild because we need a healer) and ended up not being able to find one at all for her. Then Monday night I was forced to say goodbye to Davi’s tree from, which I had truly grown to love. The tree’s of Tichondrious had a fair well gathering at the fountain, and now I wish I had taken a screen shot or six of it. Continue reading
