Jumpin’ on that thar bandwagon

Because I have found the few replies I’ve seen to these questions interesting…. and I failed again at having pics ready for the post I meant to have ready to go today. Here’s a little getting to know me and what I think.

Edited to add: I stole this from Anea. Oops! Should have gotten that in sooner, but I fail.
1. Raider, farmer, PvPer, or altoholic?

Er, one part raider and one part altoholic.

2. Favorite raid or dungeon?

I am enjoying ICC for the most part. I think it’s because we’re actually making somewhat steady progress and haven’t run it all a billion times. I’m pretty tired of most of the 5-mans, old and new alike. Oh, I miss Gruul!

3. Number one choice for a new playable race?

The Ethereal, for uh, ethereals.

4. Class you suck the most at?

Pretty much anything that’s only melee. I do alright on my paladin as a tank, but I am hopeless at just about anything else.

5. Original UI or modded UI?

Very modded. The original UI hurts me, Precious.

6. Profession you’ve never leveled past 200?

I have most professions to max or near-max. I like being self-sufficient.

7. Favorite flying mount?

That I have? Mah pocket rocket. That I want? Oh, there are too many.

8. Nozdormu — friend or foe, you figure?

Friendly thus far. I haven’t paid any attention to upcoming plot changes though.

9. Useless item you have in your bank that you’ll never get rid of?

Umm, I’m pretty ruthless about keeping things tidy and chucking useless crap both in game and IRL. I hate clutter and not having space for things I will need or want to have on hand some day.

10. Most expensive thing you’ve ever bought?

That damn Traveler’s Tundra Mammoth. Alas has been flat broke ever since.

11. Favorite starting area?

I am partial to Azuremyst and Elwynn for the Alliance side of things, although I have been known to occasionally roll one of the other races just to do their starting areas. For the Horde side, I’ve really only done the Belf and cow starting areas recently. I thought the cow starting area was a pain in the ass, so I suppose the Belf place takes the cake. I even discovered a new-to-me quest last time I was through there.

12. Inane goal you worked hardest to achieve?

Inane? I’m not sure I consider it inane, but I worked my ass off for Loremaster, and manged to pick up Seeker along the way. I suppose I’ve done a few very grindy rep grinds recently for no apparent reason other than that I love achievement points – most notable was exalted with the Timbermaw.

13. Darion Mograine VS Tirion Fordring, gloves off — winner is?

I think I’m bound by law to root for Fordring.

14. Game music or your own playlist?

Game music when a place is still fresh and new. When it’s gotten stale or just started off as somewhat irritating (Grizzly Hills) my own playlists.

15. Particular option or setting that you always toggle on a new alt/server?

Uhh, there’s a lot I do to get my UI looking right. For options in the main setting panels, I like to click off the cloak and helm display.

16. Highest amount of levels gained in one play session?

That would be the time I went from 21 – 50ish. I mean, yeah, At was granting me levels, but no one said I couldn’t claim that. Playing alone, I’ve probably gotten between 15-20 at a time, but those would have been starting levels and probably with triple XP also.

17. Thing you’d most like to experience or see in-game?


18. Worst PuG moment?

Ahahaha. I have such a low tolerance for jackassery that it would be easier to ask for best PuG moment. And even then I would be hard-pressed to come up with an answer.

19. Best dungeon/raid moment?

Recently, it was getting the twilight sparkle party and BQL down in a single night. Although, I think Putricide finally dropping was a huge moment for us, also, since we had been working on him for weeks. The rush of finishing other raid instances in full is also really great and up there. I guess I don’t really have just one.

20. Worst quest ever that you totally hate doing?

I fucking hate those ghosty arakkoa ones in Hellfire. And the guano one in Howling Fjord. And pretty much any escort quest ever. And any Horde quest I’ve ever done between the levels of 20 and 40.

21. First thing you do when you hit 80?

Lately, I drop whatever I’m doing and train and then look to see if I have upgrades kicking around. BoA gear goes to the next one who will need it and I plot to run some heroics and then pretty much never get around to it. I might drag a new 80 into the weekly raid groups if it’s something very easy.

22. Character (of yours) you would RP as if you had to?

Probably Isea on the <SAN> server. But for someone who likes stories and who loved acting, I find that to be a difficult aspect of the game to want to get into. I think a lot of my problem is the whole having to interact with other people thing. My viewpoint is that if you’re going to RP, you should know how to spell or check what you’ve typed before pressing that good old enter key. Otherwise we have teats coming out of our eyes and that’s just not a pretty picture.

23. Keyboard, mouse, or both for using abilities?

Keyboard about 95% of the time. I try to avoid using the mouse for much of anything.

24. Thottbot or WoWhead?

Usually WoWhead.

25. Acronym you’ve seen in chat but don’t understand?

I don’t think I’ve seen anything new or different lately.

26. Plot point you’d like to see resolved someday?

That whole mess with Alleria, Turalyon and Arator. I think it’s pretty heartbreaking.

27. Biggest thing you’re looking forward to in Cataclysm?

Just having new things to do. I really like the direction they are heading with raid size (number of bosses) and I really do hope for more interesting fight mechanics. I miss being useful from a CC standpoint (because I was a damn good sheeper in BC). I also look forward to eventually trying out a new race and hopefully getting a rogue past level 10.

28. Guild event you’d like to see?

I would just like to see my guild participate more in events we have. Seems like the last few have really been duds with only a small handful participating. I think my guild-mates are all goblins, actually, because the most successful event I ran was all about making money.

29. Level range you hate being in?

I’m so sick of Outlands I can’t even say. I had hoped that Outlands would look and feel different on the Horde side of things, but we just went through there recently and it was pretty much all the same crap Alliance has to do, just with slightly different goals.

30. Favorite map to quest in?

I really like Dustwallow. It was laid out so nicely when they revamped it and I am able to breeze through it with relative speed and efficiency. That seems to be what I value most in a zone, as other favorites are Duskwood and Searing Gorge.

  1. Hm, I had forgotten about the helm/cloak display that I turn off more often than not.

    Just out of curiosity, what is the questline that you found in Eversong that is "new to you"? I think I have a good working knowledge of the area, but I wonder if there's something that slipped past my radar…

    Thanks for sharing your responses. :D And I totally agree with you on the topic of RP & the need for proper spelling…
