Holy cats, it’s been over two years. Whooooops.
We’ll just move past that and right into the updates!
I DID A PODCAST. Actually, I was a guest on The Peeples Forum for the second time. First time was about Walking Dead, this time was about WoW! You can list here: The Peeples Forum.
I picked up raiding again in Cataclysm, then stopped late in Mists of Pandaria yet again. I know, hot and cold, right? Anyway, I have been raiding for what seems like forever (which I say with all fondness) and now I am focused on another hobby IRL: the Society for Creative Anachronism. (And no, it’s not LARPing, but thanks for asking.)
That being said, I got to enjoy the tail end of MoP and now into Warlords of Draenor very, very casually. For example, I didn’t play on release day… I was out of town, because Blizzard decided to not do a release on Tuesday for the first time ever when I wouldn’t be here… and it was okay. I wanted to play but I didn’t panic. That’s a big step from needing to hit max level fast to get into raids ASAP. I also got some time to just level alts, farm transmog stuff, and overall just hang out in game.
Speaking of leveling alts, I closed out MoP with a staggering 14 level 90’s. Yes, that’s duplicating some classes, and no, it’s not five extra priests… only three this time. More on those alts (with their MoP pre-updated model screenshots) after the jump.
Oh dear. It has been a ridiculous amount of time since I posted here.
LET’S FIX THAT.
I’ve been kept away mostly by work, unfortunately. Things are a bit crazy (and will continue to be for a bit, sadly) but I’m doing my best to come back. Meanwhile, if you know of any other awesome fashion blogs besides the ones I link in the sidebar, please let me know so I can add them to the blogroll!
MoP beta invites started last night! As a long-time subscriber and also early adopter of the Annual Pass, I’m hoping for an invite fairly soon but who knows? I’m incredibly excited to get a look at the new gear and weapons and also just bask in the beauty of Pandaria in general.
Just so this isn’t a fashion-less post, I have something silly to share. Like Tyrael’s Charger, I knew from moment one that I would be completely unable to resist the siren song of the Spectral Wind Rider for Tanwen. Fortunately, I have a secondary, on-again-off-again account that I used for a zhevra mount (and crazy-fast leveling of a druid and my second ever priest). It lapsed sometime in 2011 and I assumed it would remain dead. BUT. Scroll of Resurrection just had to come along, didn’t it?
So I got to thinking… what am I missing? What class do I not have at level 85? Thus far, I have (get ready for this) four priests (belf, belf, human, and goblin), a paladin (belf), a mage (troll), a warlock (human), a druid (tauren), and two hunters (human and human). I have a shaman at 80 (troll) and one at 83 (spacegoat). I have a warrior at 73 (human) A DK at 76 (belf). And a rogue at… 27 (human). Wow. I could probably make a post about all of their “standard” outfits and… wait, I’m getting off track here. The warrior, shamans, and DK will easily make it to 85 if I put my mind to it. But a rogue… man, I am bad, bad, B-A-D, BAD at rogues. How I even got to 27, I’ll never know. I love the idea of a rogue, I really do. I enjoy the thought of playing one. But in practice… ehhhhhhh. I died a lot, honestly, because there are so many buttons I don’t understand.
I chatted with one of my regular heroic/LFR buddies about what class I should pick. He chose his paladin for some reason and sent the Scroll to his other account. I continued to ponder. Finally, I decided to just go for it and pick a rogue. I knew it was the only way I would level one.
And so, without further ado(I say that a lot, don’t I?), I present… Tamirra/Allessity.
