Cymre asked a very yummy topic this week..involving Ice-cream! Really, ice-cream and WOW in the one sentence AWESOME!!!
It would not be uncommon to hear about the initial release of World of Warcraft as Vanilla or Classic. In terms of ice cream or gelato (which is my preference), Vanilla was once considered the most popular flavour of it’s time. So if Vanilla represents Classic WoW, what flavours could represent the following expansions?
I want to be able to change the flavour of Classic WoW as well, but alas I can’t So with that in mind we shall soldier on!
Burning Crusade was a pretty good xpac, it hasn’t been my favourite so far, but it came in second which is why I went with Cafe Grande. It is a coffee based ice cream with nuts mixed in covered in chocolate. It has fantastic flavours and a fair bit of crunch for the harder raiding, but overall smoothness of a great story and fantastic artwork.
Wrath of the Lich King was my favourite expansion. I loved every single aspect of it, I levelled with my hubby and best mate all three of us in a group exploring and enjoying the stories. I loved the Viking theme, I love the Ice theme, ICC was a fantastic end raid, Ulduar was also kick arse. Dalaran was beautiful and I don’t think they could get it any more perfect if they had tried. Wrath is cookies and cream by Connoisseur. No other brand will come close to the magic they have captured in that tub of perfection.
Cataclysm, was an expansion that felt like someone else had made it. To me, if felt like they had tried to capture the epic feel of vanilla WoW with some great added benefits and changed rules. Whilst I can agree the world is much better now with the changes to questing and levelling, and things like LFR, I feel a little “meh” about the whole thing. This is more my issue than Blizzard’s though as I left after just hitting 85 and came back too late into just starting Firelands to really enjoy it. I did not get to work on my legendary, I did not get to do as many achievements as I normally would, I have done nothing overall this expansion that makes me happy. For that reason I am making Cataclysm Boysenberry ice cream. It will never be as good as I wanted it to be when I buy it, there will be too much Vanilla and not enough Boyseberry or vice versa. It will never live up to cookies and cream, but it can hold it’s own
Mists of pandaria, what an exciting time for us all, soon to be in the land of the pandas with completely new class and race combo once again,with new talents – no more cookie cutters?, no more big bad at the end trying to crush us all into oblivion. This is going to be a peaceful expansion, an enjoyable jaunt through a new continent. New pets and mounts and farming and so much new stuff I have no idea how i am going to be able to do it all!!! It’s like an street fair with everything going on and you can’t decide what to do next because you want to do all the things!!! For this reason it is Cold rock ice cream for me. I know not techincally a flavour, but I would use a Vanilla base and add in a little bit of everything I could – M & M’s, mars bars, gummy bears, snickers, snakes alive, coke bottles, tim tams, jaffas…anything!!
So check out the other bloggers views on ice cream, I think we all need some now after reading through all these posts!!
