New Paths

Was hanging out in Stormwind again, until I remembered why I don’t do it more often. I got whispers non-stop. Grr!
From a level 12 hunter:
– Hi!!!! Can u plz make glow in wpn!!
-No sorry. I’m not an enchanter.
– Plz glow!!! On wpn!!!!
– …
– Plxz I pay!!!
– Listen…as I told you, I am not an enchanter.
– Ok.
– Ok.
– So can u give the glow??
From a level 34 mage:
– Can you please boost me in SM?
– No, sorry
– But why? I really need help ūüė¶ Please
– I don’t give boosts. Besides it would take forever. Im resto.
– You are rested?
– Hm? No resto. As in restoration.
– Oh. I thought you were a shaman.

And don’t even get me started on trade and general channels! Imb√†pally is spamming “Dirge¬† dirge dirge!”. Someone answers with “your mum” jokes and Lolpwnrogu√© tops it with writing “anal”. Over and over and over. Sure, the time is 16.00 and its prime time for semi-aggressive kids who just got home from school and get nervously over-excited by reading the word “boob”. The average WoW player is 27 years old. Where are all of those people hiding then?? Are they on the horde side? Statistics say no, the age is nicely balanced between the two factions.

Maybe the problem is my server? Bronzebeard is perhaps an attractive home for the ones who think its cool to act tough behind the screen without getting consequences. And could it be any different on the roleplay servers? I decided to find out, and after some research I chose to pay a visit to the RP server Argent Dawn, a highly populated, respective server that are supposed to be one of the best RP EU servers. The same evening, under the twinkling stars of Elwynn Forest, the warlock Lynn was born.
Don’t ask what this means, I have no clue
My first stop is Goldshire in Elwynn Forest. The first thing I’m noticing is that no one are running, they are walking. A level 49 warrior comfortably¬† worn in cloth is sitting in the corner of a window while emoting: “Trimack finds his favourite position up on the window sill, trying to look his best. Maybe this day she will pass by and notice him. He will never grow tired of waiting for her.” Who mister Trimack is waiting for I don’t know, and I’m not feeling brave enough in the mastery of roleplaying to ask him either. Around the corner are Trealor and Tralinda standing close to each other. The young Traelor has recently been accepted to the priest profession, but is frustrated with her master. Tralinda is trying to explain to her that the becoming a priest is a long education who leaves deep scars in the soul, but on the long road one will realize that being a priest is to master a piece of art (On Bronzebeard this probably means : leveling priest is boring as hell, but after 80 you will kick ass).

In the grove of the forest near the blacksmith an old man, Elfea is walking restlessly around. He asks if anyone has seen a big Elwynn bear, this creature has eaten his grandfather’s monocle. If anyone were to find it, he would be endlessly grateful, since this was the only thing he had left from a large and honourful kin.

Wow, I think to myself, this really IS different! No spam, no blahblahblah, no…wait a minute…from nowhere he pops up – the gnome rogue Ik√¨llyou runs up in front of me and yells so loud that if the monocle-eating bear was anywhere near, he in halfway to Westfall now. “WHERE ARE HORDE???!!!” the little green-haired halfling also known as Ik√¨llyou shouts, and the magic is gone for now.

A visit to Stormwind is also on its right place. How will trade and general channel look like here? Someone is looking for an enchanter. So far it looks pretty much the same. Maybe a bit more quiet, but it’s getting late and its past bedtime for the youngest ones. All of a sudden there are warnings about Stormwind being under attack. But, instead of “OMG horde pwning the king come help ffs”, someone is shouting “Rescue us, killing the dogs o’ Stormwind! Neaten the lines!“. “Lutz of dead ppl in castle lololol” has been replaced with “O’ screams in the chapels, corpses on the floor“. The paladin Detroix is sitting at the fountain of Stormwind, he is wearing fully level 60 epic gear. Even though he is level 80 now, he has no intentions about changing this. He would like to help out on the attack, he says, but its this damn leg you see, keeps dragging him down.

I would like to stay to find out which story lies behind Detroix’s leg, but I get interrupted by Vanessaa who is frustrated about her career. Apparently, being a prostitute doesn’t pay well in these times. Some years ago she could claim any kind of amounts, but she will still do her job for a decent price. An offer Callypto can’t resist, because not long after we are witnessing a very private and intimate affair.
The whole thing finishes with an outdoor party to celebrate that the horde were defeated. Detroix states that he does not want to join in on this, perhaps this reminds the fallen hero of memories, memories that still hurt. Callypto and Vannessaa don’t share this problem and are cheering and dancing naked in the middle of trade district, filled with happiness. I don’t want to seem dull, so guess what? I’m joining. And, for what its worth; I’m having fun!
To start a new character and level it to 80 on a RP server is not an option to me. But the great thing about those servers is that you don’t have to reach 80 to get maximum out of the game, and many people seem to have no rush to become 80 either. Of course there are annoying and immature players here too (WHERE ARE HORDE!!!), but lets face it, they are not so bad after all, and are a part of the game. I had a great time while I was playing on Argent Dawn, and who knows, maybe Lynn will face more adventures in the future. If nothing else, just for a refreshing experience that can be recommended ūüôā 

May the Elune be with you (yeah, yeah I suck, I know)!

It’s a known fact that some pets look like their owners. Or is it the owners that look like their pets? Anyway, some people take this even into WoW. There are pet collectors, there are armor pet collector, and there is the player Drrum from Stormrage US that combibe those two and match her armor with her pets. I came over this at WoW Insider, and had to go through all the amazing screenshots.

I have a soft spot for shiny looking armor AND for pets, so this some of the most interesting I have seen on a long time. I just had to post some of Drrum’s pictures here, for the whole collection, click here, go go go! You will not regret it ūüėÄ

Nudazhan!

I love Karazhan. It was my first raid instance in my first raiding guild. I had just being accepted on a trial,¬† and was doing dailies out on the island when I got a whisper from one of the officers “hey wanna come Kara? We need one more ranged”. I was horrified, my hands were ice-cold and heart beating. What if I messed up? What if I got kicked from guild for lack of dps? However, I joined and had so much fun, one of the best WoW nights ever. Back then Kara was still pretty hard stuff, so we cleared half place and everyone were really pleased about that. I got two new weapons and my first tier piece. Also, the officer whispered me afterwards and said I had done a great job, I know it might sound ridiculous, but I felt really proud and happy.

Later on, with higher level gear, we arranged “Kara Friday drunk runs”, where we pulled pretty much room by room and cleared the place in some hours, while people got drunker and Vent conversations got funnier. Good times.

No armor allowed, at least none with stats on

 

Remember how hard this used to hit?

I still try to go there every once in a while, just for the first boss to see if he drops his mount. No luck so far. However, the other day we had a cancelled raid and decided to arrange a Kara nude run, meaning you have to start naked, with no armor or weapons, and you can only equip what drops in there. I have never heard so much excitement over green loot, “oooomg! Leather bracers +10 spirit, GIEF!”, and the epics from the bosses were mostly welcomed. Great fun, and can be recommended on a¬† raid-free night ūüėÄ

Result: gray bracers, green shoes and gloves and epic, shiny mace!

 


…spam a silly macro!

In the middle of a more or less serious pepfight before a boss the cookie monster all of a sudden appeared in /general. Oh noes! Made me lol. Yes. I like silly stuff. ūüėÄ

Shark Attack

Speilberg created Jaws, Blizzard has Maws. Maws the Shark has (literally!) been my wet dream since I read about him on my wonderful friend Toms’s blog.¬† Always been fascinated by sharks, and would really like to go down in a shark cage once. He is last part of The Scepter of the Shifting Sands quest chain, and after helping Simon (who was mad enough to go for Loremaster) out in Blackrock Mountain, we finally got to kill him. You need a quest item to make him spawn somewhere in waters of Azhara (would be Assssscccchhhharaaaaaaaaahh!!! pronounced¬† √† la Elise), he used to be quite easy even back in Vanilla, where you could kill him with a team of 15 raid members. We were 4 people and killed him so fast I had to ask people slow down on dps just to be able to make a screenshot. Poor Maws.

A new loremaster is born

Random things to do when bored

Fokanell walks his pug in a leashe around Dalaran every night, wearing Don Carlos’ Famous Hat.¬† How nice. How random!


Every now and then I read about people who see the portrait of Jesus in some bread, pancake or tortillas. If that had happened to me, I would probably think “hm, how odd” to myself and continue eating. But people apparanlty sell those stuff and make a lot of money. And… today something similar happened to me! Was not quite as religious as Jesus, I must say, it was of course a World of Warcraft experience.

I spilt water while feeding my cat, and the water, together with some catfood created a picture of a..whelp! Ok, so I might had a few drinks too much, but Im going to post it anyway. You see the little baby whelp in here? ūüėÄ Maybe I can sell this on e-bay and make a lot of money too! /nod. Offers are welcome! Ok, time to go to bed now I think…hic!

Hugs for all!
