Shhh…there is a troll and a femtaur in disguise here….Also…mmmm fried chicken!
A lady rides this way? And before Slice is a girl comments! SHUSH!
And below….proof all elves are female? Aka eye candy for Lyss and Van…thought they might appreciate it…or perhaps Sorak as well. Or maybe even Arv!
I almost forgot i preordered the CE edition…Early start…tomorrow? Guess I had re-download the client!
Also for Van cause I know she likes ponies….
Very old post…probably my first.
Looking over the list, lots of names are still in Shadow Rising, other have moved on etc etc. From there to now I have met a lot of great people in this game. It’s quite amazing how many people that are awesome one can meet. I know people on the internet are crazy in a bad way most of the time, but I have to say the people I have met in WoW are generally nice and awesome etc! /hug!
Zarigar – I originally wrote that I did not know much about him and he would not heal. I say now, Zari is probably one of the funniest people I have met. And is quite the healer, I think he has one of every healing type? The Original Mohawk troll!
Sorak and Zug – now I have met these them in reallife driving cross country and they are just as nice as they are in game! Awesome players and awesome people. People tend to pick on Sorak, I dont know why! Zug is quite at times but can also throw out a zinger as well.
Tel – although I dont see him much on WoW, tel is still also a very great and amusing guy. Sense of humor is very sarcastic, much like zari….must be a cali thing……
Lyssi – brat…..nuff said.
Rev, Ana, Log, Grom, Bo, Toxic - I know they are alliance and on a different server! But they are nice individuals, very amusing at times to see in a raid. Very generous and patient. If you need a guild alliance side on Winterhoof I strongly suggest Crits and Giggles! Nice people, laid back!
Adoe – Troll…moving on…but srsly, uber nice guy with a odd sense of humor at times, and questionable tastes in music….also has a lot of “odd” dates…..
Fahaala aka mage friend, shady - (i can never remember how to spell her name!) Also a sweetheart like Lyss. But shares in the normal odd humor of most people I associate with. Shady I feel sorry for ya….married to a troll and all.
Arvash – pet collector….cheev chaser….lover of pally dresses lol. Arv is an awesome guy, quiet at times but an all around awesome dude. Also throws out some zingers out there.
Repgrind – someone call pally anon for this girl lol! ….too obsessed with pallys!
I may have forgotten some peeps if have I am sorry! (typing from work!)
Rarely do I get interested in a topic but the “now and then” posts others have been posting intrigues me for some reason. Must be the history buff in me….
November 4th 2010 was my 1st “small” journey into the world of Azeroth. Being a fax on the Warcraft RTS games, a MMO intrigued me. Previously friends had tried to get me to play Everquest, but I resisted, although I did cave in and played FFXI a lot. At the time of WoW’s release, I was still heavily into FFXI. (sorry – Mithra and Taru > Goblins and Night Elves) Therefore, my initial foray into Azeroth was tainted I admit. Many of my friends in FFXI at the time did not have good things to say about WoW and WoW for (at least players on my FFXI server) was for the “kiddies”.
An old college friend had gotten the game and I rolled a forsaken on their server at the time. I think it was a Warlock….no wonder why I hate them so….
1st impression on WoW – laggy…..cartoony…..sooo many people where are the quest mobs….and I ahve to quest to level? WTF?!?!?! People don’t group up and grind down mobs for xp chains or skill chains? WTH?
In addition to the doomed Warlock, I think I also rolled a Tauren Warrior. With the warlock I recall traveling to Org to get sword training lol – melee lock! THe Tauren I used a gun to pull in stead of charging in lol.
I then quit after the 1st free month and went back to my catgirls. It was not till Burning Crusade when WoW entered my life again. BLOOD ELVES AND SPACE GOATS! /Waggle! Come on…I was in! Immediately rolled a Belf Hunter of course named Liyhe! And a Dranei Paladin named Adori…HATED the paladin….the hunter I was not to fond of as well for some reason, both toons only lasted till lvl 26 and I then quit WoW.
Not till 2009 or so, when I finally broke my FFXI bug I picked up WoW again….(wow must be “easy”) This time I was determined to see endgame etc. So of course I rolled a Belf and a priest, as it seemed closest to a White Mage from FFXI. Yes, I was a masochist, I leveled as Holy…..Smite ALL THE THINGS! Needless to say, I died a lot. This was back on Uther Server…I did join a guild there who did have aspirations to raid, but it was one of those who recruit via Trade…yeah was quite the cesspool.
As I got closer and closer to Northrend, I started to look up WoW blogs…it was this one Clearcasting that convinced me to apply and raid. I admit I was a fresh 80 in super bad gear…..but they took me in and it was a blast. It was right around that time the “infamous” dungeon finder came out…geared up raid ready in one day…..spamming heroics….from 9AM to 2AM… I was so tired….
Here is a pic I think from LK days…
As you can see Sorak is still a cow and we still have Del the tree man!
Somethings happened in SR (no need to chew on old soup bones), so I moved on for a bit and raided 25 man Alliance side for a while on Skywall in Choice – Choice. It was a blast, but looking for that Arcance Torrent button haunted me. AT > Blessing of the Naru. It is a definite difference going from 10 man to 25man heroic. When I joined they were working on Heroic Deathwhisper and Heroic Putricide…OMFG the wipes on Putricide…but the awesomeness when that punk went down. I got to raid with Kurn as well! Kurn’s Corner
Soon after that is back to SR, Liyhe was back to be a Belf! Woot! Sorry for the lack of SS as those are at the home PC. People have come and gone but, WoW is still going strong, TOR is in contention atm though lol. Through WoW I have met alot of awesome people, learned alot about the game from other people who blog etc. I guess the internet is not just for porn eh?
Anyone else feel that Cata, more specifically Tiers 12 and 13, have been soul crushing?
Tier 11 – ooooo new raids! new gear! new bosses and 3 zones to playin!
Tier 12 – the raid environment does not feel epic, some of the boss fights were interesting, overall kind of too short as well.
Tier 13 – same raid size as Tier 12….with recycled environments….some wait…no interesting fights (well maybe spine).
I hate to admit it, I had more fun raiding in Wrath then I did in Cata. I cant quite put my finger on it but I guess I had something more to idenify with in killing the Lich King. Deathwing did nothing for me….sure he is a big bad evil dragon….but meh.
With MoP news coming out soon, I hope this will help brighten things up. But I really like the group of people our raid contains, if not for them I probably would cancel the account for WoW.
I feel like many others who have been playing MMOs for a while – you cant go back. I look back on FFXI kindly and wish in many ways MMOs were still old school. Where servers mattered and community mattered. I admit I like larger raids. But with recent times – convenience > old school things in my opinion. Companies are looking for their biggest gain and things like LFR, dungeon finder make it easier to get into MMOs. Smaller raids – lets face are easier to organize. Large raids are going to be a thing of ancient times.
Now in ToR….healing as a Bounty Hunter…I am not a real fan of it. It’s tool box for healing feels like it is lacking something. All it really has it direct heals, no real oh crap button to speak of. Slow cast heal, medium cast, and really freakin cast heal. Slow heal – no CD, medium heal – 9 sec CD, fast heal – 20+ sec. Besides that there is a AOE missle healing spell thingee…max targets it can hit is 3…..small puddle on the ground which is supposed to heal people much like a druids spell…but I dont think it works properly. And it also looks like bad on the ground lol. Gear grind in TOR just like it is in WoW, so its quite easy to get geared up.
Healing in ToR feels like healing at the behinning of Cata for a fresh 50. Leveling up a Sorc to heal as it…cause they get bubbles, and from what I can tell a more diverse healing selections. MIxture of direct heals and some HoTs (per Sorak – so take that with a grain of salt)
Best thing about lvling in ToR is the story telling for the class quests, love them! The dialogue for the normal quests….not so much blech.
After the Sorc I will work on an imperial agent i think, or maybe make some more jedi! The good side. Why couldn’t SR be jedi and not stinky imps…..
So it really has been a while. I guess I should get around to posting that 6th screenshot thing, but no SS here at work.
But in the MMO world:
WoW – is the same. Clearing DS easily in one night now. Starting to work on heroics slowly now that the TOR fever seems to have calmed down a hair I think. Morchok down, onto Ultraxion!
Lots of new info for MoP in the form of talent trees…..still can’t wait for some real info.
ToR – Jedi Consular is still 25. On the Sith side – Bounty Hunter finally hit 50! Popped open a few champion bags got an earpiece and some token, so bought an offhand healing gun? (healing gun lol) Got some upgrades running heroic Boarding Party and Foundry and a few epics off the AH. Healing in ToR….definitely needs some mouseover macros. Also….just like in WoW Cayle is go go go go lol! No time for breathing….
Anyways…..back to work!
