"Like the wind" my ASS

I bet it was Jaina who came up with the idea. She ragequit the Kirin Tor and was determined that everyone else would come to hate them too.

"How about this puzzle game that you need to do over and over and over again before you learn the timing? And that has a whole bunch of different layouts so that next time you encounter it you have completely forgot how to do it?"

And Kirin Tor be like "oh that sounds brilliant! They hack and slash all day anyway, they surely will appreciate a little mind games, don't you think?"

"Oh yes, not to mention that good old platform feels, you know, the one that made you eat your control pad as a child."


Seriously, I haven't been this frustrated with any part in any game since that graveyard wall-clinging in Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2. You know when you dry-cry and slam the mouse so hard against the table you're positive it's gonna cause a tsunami in the nearby lake and your lungs are about to burst because you suck in air between your clenched teeth each time you take a leap and hold your breath inbetween.

If I wanted a platform game I'd buy one, amirite.

Not to mention it sometimes BUG OUT in the south of Azsuna and send me back to Suramar where I were earlier and leave me midair, and when I fall down I DIE and have to find my corpse on those cliffs i cant even #"%&#¤!!


Today, Kirin Tor popped up as Emissary Quest. I managed one so far. Three to go.

#FML

If I never write here again, you will find me with exploded chest in front of my computer, mouse half way through the desk.

Pilgrim's Bounty yumyum

It's Pilgrim's Bounty and all this turkey roast and cranberry chutney and sweet potatoes makes me drool all over my keyboard and I really need to make a subsitute for it irl because GOD it sounds so tasty!

In other news, I rolled a lock. Like a true noob*. Warlocks can't wear plate. They can't use shields. They cast spells and controls pets. They don't even have a friggin' combat stance anymore wtf i cant even #"%&¤%. All in all, they are everything I never looked for in this game.

So why a lock, one might wonder? Well. Three things. Skulls. And scythes. And dark color scheme.

*swoons*

Not gonna lie, I am a goth/rock/emo/metal at heart, despite my horrible orientation skills in genre as well as style. Still. Skulls and scythes and black makes it worth the whole squishiness, casting time and pet directing.

I even used my Legion-boost on this toon. Now levelling mining and herbalism alongside Pilgrim's Bounty cooking, for materials and xp. Later I might make him a scribe, or jewelcrafter, or enchanter. Something that can benefit my main (the protadin) and that I don't have to use my death knight jewelcrafter/enchanter for. Because let's face it, I'd rather lol around on this toon for crafting than on my dk.

Which, to be honest, mainly has to do with that the dk is female, and even if I think it's awesome with the female badass npc's in this game (very pleased with the increased numbers in Legion expansion), I am more reluctant than ever to actually play one after coming out to the world and to myself as transgender. Eager to get rid of the incorrect body type I guess.

That said, I'm a bit bummed that the Highland Turkeys aren't lootable. I'm sure I could make a fantastic Slow-Roasted Turkey with those instead of Wild Turkeys.

Ghost iron and mogus

A new video is up! It's mostly talk talk talk about Pandaria crafting, comments about my gender, and the Legion transmog system.

Horde at heart... but...

...sometimes I level characters on Alliance. It's true. And... I even like it. This time, it's a draenei shaman. No plate, but still melee. Dress code: Red.


My first toon was a night elf druid, a very rare choice because literally noone made a night elf druid as their first toon amirite. Anyway, I played and roleplayed him for about a year, mostly with real life friends, but playtime with them got scarce due to reasons. So when another rl-friend told me he was to start play on Horde side on another server, I followed.

And found roleplayers. So many roleplayers. And I made this blood elf paladin, a true emo despite the bulk and brutality and the blond hair, and I felt at home.

But you know. Sure, there's no place like home and all that but the other side is sooo tempting at times. The music in the night elf starting zone gives me a glimpse of that first feeling in World of Warcraft, when I took my first step in this completely new world that I had never seen the like of until then. It was around Christmas, so that music and the night elf forests are forever connected to Christmas in my mind.

Nowadays I play Alliance mostly to see the world of Azeroth from the other side, explore areas that I haven't seen on my Horde characters and to create characters of other races and classes.

I realize I also do it for the privacy. I'm in no guilds on any of my allytoons, and I usually level on my own. Sometimes I've thought of either joining or maybe even starting a guild for asocial players who wants the benefits of being in a guild but don't want to interact with other people.

However, since levelling is so damn superfast these days that even I, with my lack of patience, can do it once in a while, And since I'm not levelling for the sake of levelling, or for raid goal or whatever, but for the adventure, I actually don't mind that it takes more time.

I got enough heirlooms to make the quests fairly easy, but a guild would have me outlevel the zones way too fast, and I want to actually complete zones now rather than rush through them to level as quick as possible.

Which is what is so great with World of Warcraft, that there is so much to do even if you "done it before" a whole bunch of time. I get bored easily. So easily. And I can also get very dedicated to something that catches my eyes.

Now, I'm going to save the world from fel corruption with my shaman. Well. At least for now. Meanwhile, I'll hunt neat red gear for him. Until I get bored and go do something else. Or start feeling lonely in my guildless, no party situation.
