The Server Blues

Don’t get me wrong, I love my guild and most of my guildies. Though there are days more often than not that I wish I could move to a new realm. I have been playing on the same realm for almost four years and when you’ve been around that long you gain some friends and some enemies. I feel like I could use a new start.. but the idea of leveling news characters and having no gold just sounds terrible. I barely have the money to continue playing none the less transfer characters to a new server. I have done research into different servers and asked people their opinions but of course no one can tell me where to go. The biggest bummer of the whole thing is not knowing someone on another server that plays as much as I do. Most of the people on my Real I.D. are from my server or are other friends on different servers who don’t enjoy quite the same aspects of the game as I do. Also I have been interested in playing Alliance for a change of pace. Yes, I know, boooo! The same races get a bit bored when you’ve played them for so long. I don’t necessarily enjoy the people that I have met in-game that play Alliance but the races are kind of neat. I would love to be a Draenei goat thing, or a night elf. I have no interest in the Worgen though, their animations seem strange to me. 

On a side note; I found a transmog for my Pandaren Mage who is now into Northrend content.



Another Pandaren Mage

After much deliberation I decided to level a second Mage, because personally I have little interest in the Undead one I have now. It is level 85 with some amazing Dragon Soul gear from back in Cataclysm. Though even then I really did not have a thing for the Undead. I think they, more so than any other class, really need a reskin. Anyway, the releveling process has not been a fun one. It goes by much faster with heirlooms which is amazing but now that I am back into Outlands I want to strange every person I get a dungeon with. It is always those new players or new death knights that think their the absolute shit and can pull everything. I mean thank god I’m not a Healer anymore, I’ve leveled all those and do not want to do that again. At least on my new Mage I have Invisibility now so I can run off while they die. As an added bonus my guild has Mass Resurrection so I can decide if I want to wait on them to run back or not. I have to admit I am one of those people that just loves these new Pandarens. The males look a little strange to me but the females are just so cute! *fan girl squee* The tails are adorable and their cute hair cuts.. though I wish that the colors were more of the hair than a tiny streak. I can’t wait till I finish my new Mage (which is a Pandaren!) because the Mage sets are so adorable. Don’t you judge me! Though finding transmog for a Monk is a bit of a pain in the arse. I absolutely hate farming and questing as a whole.. so when I decided I wanted to get her some cool leather transmog I knew my work was cut out for me.


My Patience is Thin

So my guild goes through a great effort to lead “Alt Raids” for people outside of our main raid teams and alternate characters. Unfortunately I volunteered my time to get them together the past few weekends. I felt that, as a new Officer, I should give my time back to the guild and help out the other members. Obviously I regret this now because I have about as much patience as a two year old. I don’t mind having to explain fights to people or giving it a few shots for everyone to figure out what their suppose to do. I DO mind when someone who has never done the fights in a ten man atmosphere is trying to lead the raid and talking over me. That irritates me to the point of reaching through the computer and smacking someone. Well thankfully there were enough computer and game related technical issues going on that we ended the raid over an hour early. I think I would almost rather sit through an LFR (Looking For Raid) group than run another Alt Raid with some of those people.Image

WoW What An Addict

Now I’m not one to brag.. oh wait, I kinda am. I tend to use a good amount of my free time playing video games. Some could say that I am addicted or simply waste my life online doing nothing useful. To be entirely honest I think I tend to spend a little too much time on there as well. When I have some college work to get done I can peel myself off long enough to finish it but even then I wait till the last day to get things done. I enjoy spending my time online playing World of Warcraft with my nerdy friends, is that so wrong? I am currently in a semi-casual raiding guild (for those of you that aren’t familiar with the game it’s basically a group of people that kill tough monster). I know my definitions are probably lacking a good bit of detail but I’m not here to educate anyone. If you really want to know just go play the game for yourself. Anyway, the team and myself have been working hard to get our shit together. We’ve finally gotten half way through Throne of Thunder which for us is a huge achievement. Although I am getting a tad bit tired of people not being on time. Just saying it makes me wonder how I have a life outside this game at all. I feel almost sorry for them for having other things to do that could keep them from having fun with. I guess I need to get out more.. I’m on here writing this rather than being on WoW, so that must count for something.
