Shared Topic: Warcraft books/comics

So, I wanted to know if I am the only one reading the warcraft books/comics or if there are others out there for the shared topic this week from Blog Azeroth.

I managed to get my hands on almost every single book and comic (including short stories) for Warcraft and I have only just started to read them. I have spent more time trying to find an actual chronoclogical order of reading, than actually reading, but they all seem to be different. I am at the point now where I am just treating them all as single stories and trying to just read them as such.

I started with “Rise of the Horde” – loved it, I wanted it to go on much longer, reading about Durotan and Ogrim was so cool and obviously where the cities names came from (although the time line doesn’t go that far) and Durotan is Thrall’s father which makes it even more awesome.  I wish that book had a few more.

I then read the 5 books that form the Dawn of the Aspects, which was about the dragon aspects, so any book involving dragons had me hook, line and sinker.  It is about Galakrond and how the aspects became the aspects – Ysera, Nozdormu, Malygos, Nelfarion and Alexstrasza – it is pretty spectacular reading learning how they started out.  They are the guardians of Azeroth – everything stems from that book and it is both heartbreaking and inspiring.  I and am currently reading the first of 3 books for the War of the Ancients Trilogy, which as far as I can tell is about the first time the Burning legion attacked Azeroth and the Well of Eternity – I just keep imagining the instance whilst I am reading the novel.  I also started reading Vol’jin, but it wasn’t gripping me, so I left it and will pick it up later.

I have so many books left to read, plus the comics – I may be reading them for the next few months, but it is so awesome to know the names and places that are being referred to and then understand the characters more – like the complete back story being revealed.  There is something very enjoyable about it.  I can’t wait to get through more of the content!  If you haven’t read any of the novels, I suggest you do, it really does help flesh out the stories and motives of people and events.

I love this world, Azeroth, and so reading the novels brings more of it to life for me especially when I can’t be playing.  I can still be in the world reading and imagining the areas and feeling like I am in game. Go and get yourselves copies today! You won’t regret it!!

Rollercoaster week of fame!

I say fame, but really…there was not really any!

I was/am stoked with the huge response the mogging competition is receiving – twitter went crazy and so many of my blogging friends have spread the excitement to others. I cannot thank people enough for the interest shown so far and I am so excited about the comp starting on the 26th!

I was amazingly asked to guest on twisted nether but sadly, my greatest dream (remember starstruck?!?) hasn’t come to fruition because of timing – I cant do live shows at 3pm my time :( but I would give my left arm to be on there!! Being asked to be on podcast is such a nice feeling, I just wish we could tee up a time – slight devastation on my part! I have been listening to TNB for a while and part of the BA community for years silently hoping one day I would get noticed, finally it happens – and I can’t do it!

(Yes, that sounds as pretentious to me as it does to you!!!! But I swear it comes from lack of confidence rather than arrogance!)

Speaking of podcasts, the mogging competition was mentioned on another podcast and linked back to the main page! It was a quick and to the point mention but had me blushing all the same! Thank you Group Quest!

Of course the shared topics on BA have had some responses as well – fantastic to see people commenting about missing them being available, but I am busting brain cells trying to think of more topics so they can keep going! We need moar!!!

What’s that saying about fame being a harsh mistress? Is that right or have I confused two and melded them together? Either way, it has been such a boost for me to see the interest and excitement I have managed to create since coming back and I hope others continue to build the community back up!

Thanks everyone! I adore every single person who visits me, reads me and gets something out of my blog.

Shared topic – Mountable Mounts

This topic was brought to you by, me!!  YAY!!  [ insert ping back ].

One of the things I have noticed since my return is the huge amount of mounts available now through rep gains. I am still working on a couple, but it has made me wonder which mounts you guys are loving or hating :)

So what are your top 5 mounts – or just the ones you go to all the time because you like the way they ride? What are the ones you really dislike and can never bring yourself to use – does it rub against your collecting nature (if you have one) to buy all the mounts even though you know you will never use them?

The story behind this topic is quite short so, let me give it to  you.  I finally reached exalted for Golden Lotus and thought to myself that one of those sexy riding cranes would be awesome….so I went and bought one, awesome looking thing that it is….sadly..it is absolutely horrific to ride. The way it moves is just completely irritating, however, even after trying the first one, I had to buy the rest of them and try them, just to make sure they all sucked.  Yup, I could not let 2 other mounts be uncollected even though I hate it.   So who is the idiot who dropped 4k on mounts even though she will never ever use them?

WoWScrnShot_011014_143419

The only exception to this rule is the $14k mammoth.I refuse to pay that much money for a mount that I despise almost as much as the cranes.  I was so excited to get a mammoth, they looked awesome, imposing and just fantastic….shame that riding one made me want to punch my monitor :p I still love looking at them even now!

WoWScrnShot_011014_143141

I put the Elekks in the same group as mammoths, although not quite as extreme hatred, I won’t willingly choose to use them 9and I did buy all of them when I could).

WoWScrnShot_011014_143237

But in truth, I like more mounts than I dislike…I can never decide what to use, I need to download the addon that randomly chooses them for you, I loved always being surprised with choice.  But here are some pictures of my favourite ones. I turn to these guys all the time and really should give them a rest occasionally :)  Tigers/sabres are my absolute favourite, I was devastated when I discovered I couldn’t get one without being exalted – back in WoW, when getting exalted took the entire cloth supply of Azeroth!  Now I have many many many tiger mounts :)

WoWScrnShot_011014_143322

I also fell in love with this little beauty and did not stop until I had him…which reminds me I have so many more I need to collect at the Argent tournie still…but it just terrifies me!!

WoWScrnShot_011014_143358

I do love bears as well, I have many of them as well, I love the lop sided run they do…

WoWScrnShot_011014_143609

Of course anything draconic for flying…I have so many dragons I could not possibly put them all up, but here are my most treasured ones:

WoWScrnShot_011014_143510

I still want to 25 man version of the above one, but have a few achievements I need…maybe one day I will get them done…when I am level 100 and it is a cake walk….

WoWScrnShot_011014_143533

I adore the way the tail moves on this mount, it is very hypnotic, and the way the light changes the colours, honestly it is just amazes me at how beautiful they made them!!  I could go one…but I would just end up listing everything…Some special mentions have to go to the Talbuks…they are a very nice ride!

Can’t wait to see what you all love!! (if you posted and are not listed here, please let me know so I can add you!)

BA Shared Topic – Oaths

Shared Topic this week from Matty:

What vows would your character say, intend, or break, and to what allegiance? Would it be to class/race/specialization, deity, or ruler? This is quite a challenging Blog Azeroth topic, however, I know you are all up to it because you are amazing writers.

I found this one a hard one…many of my readers would know, I am not a very good writer, in fact I would go so far as to say I suck!!  Thinking about oaths and actually coming up with how to formulate those ideas into words was a struggle, however I believe I have come up with something that is only mildly crap :p

The thing you have to understand with my mindset about my toons is I don’t really care about the faction that are in.  If they are alliance, they hate horde or whatever the larger evil is (death wing anyone), and same with my horde toons, they typically hate the alliance.  The issue I have found is that my toons have been back and forth so many times in their life, I tend to just see them as their class and leave it at that.  I wrote some oaths trying to express how my main characters see their life and any oaths they may have taken to continue on their chosen path (horde or alliance :)  – yes I know a whole bunch of friends just screamed that I have to choose a side!!!)

My warrior has taken the following oath:
I pledge my life for yours to protect you from all danger and spill the blood of our enemies, before a drop of yours is shed. I shall honour our earth, I shall cleanse in the water, I shall breath in the air, I shall feast with our clan by the fire.  Always must I believe my shield is as important as my heart, and should one break the other will follow.  I am more than my weapon, and my scars will ever be a reminder of the trials we have suffered and the battles we have won.

My Paladin took:
The light shall absolve me; in the light, I shall triumph. Any pain shall be healed, any fear will be quelled. Within the light we will become one, our triple aspect becoming greater than any evil our world can attempt to destroy me with. Protection, healing and killing shall be my future with the understanding I must remember to always protect those who cannot protect themselves. This is my oath until the light leaves my body for the last time.

My Mage:
We bring the storms and we can bring the calm. We are the army that lights up the night sky.  Together we are stronger than man, demon or god.  The fire burns within us, seeking destruction; ice stills our mind, seeking the calm and the arcane flows through our veins; bursting with knowledge.  Seek the wisdom to defeat our enemies, create the balance in your mind and allow the fire in your soul to be shared with your allies.

and finally my Druid:
I am bound to the moon, as the earth is bound by the sun. I feel the turning of the seasons as one feels the rage in battle, all my forms are given to the service of the old gods. I shall nourish the earth as she nourishes me and I will fight our enemies without reservation if they cause damage to the land and the spirits which inhabit it. I fight for those who do not understand the ways of the spirit, so that one day the fight will no longer be needed.

I can’t wait to see more oaths!

Blog Azeroth – revamping

One of the things I missed the most about not playing wow, was the blogging community and BA with their shared topics.  Getting to read multiple blogs, find new ones and make new friends was not something I did as it just made my addiction harder to ignore.  So after a couple of weeks of playing and settling back into the game, I decided it was finally time to jump back on the forums and see where it was up to.

I was devastated to see that it was sort of dead…not many shared topics being done or many new posts…so…thankfully I am still a mod, so had some ability to go crazy :p  I have added some shared topics, in the hopes of sparking some imagination in others, so far I don’t want to have each week something I have posted, so please please please please please add some more so I can put them in between mine!!!

I also went ahead and created a FB page for BA…it may help keep people more up to date rather than going to forums, only because so many people are on FB all the time now anyway.  I am wondering if moving to a FB group might even be a possibility…??  For the moment, I just want to get the community more active again and see if we can’t get it hopping.

Facebook for Blog Azeroth

Please, if you love blogging and The Twisted Nether Blogcast, share the FB page, like it, comment on posts and add some shared topics to the main forums please!!  Let’s get involved with each other again!!!

Shared topic : head cannon

This weeks shared topic is brought to us by Akabeko at Red Cow Rise and it is a doozy!!

Canon refers to the actual events and characters that exist in a fictional world. Headcanon refers to any situations or characters that are imagined by fans of said fictional world. Sometimes they are silly, like the fact that Garrosh’s favorite treat is lemon squares. Sometimes they are serious, like positing that tauren store grief in the lungs. For my writing, I’ve come up with a lot of headcanon. Got a theory about a torrid romance between your favorite auctioneer and the patrolling guard? Given any thought to where mounts and pets go when they aren’t summoned? Do you know how your characters do their laundry, or what Baine Bloodhoof does in his free time? What are your headcanons, and where did you get the idea?

This is going to be a very long post :) I have so much head cannon it will take me a while to post it all!  I am just going to talk about my personal characters because they are the people I spend the most time with.

So let’s start in order with my Mage :) She was technically born in elwynn forest on a lovely rainy night. She was not supposed to be born due to her parents heritage – their love was forbidden – so she grew up living a nomadic lifestyle, moving from place to place, raised by many different aunts and uncles until she was old enough to strike out on her own.  She does not have a chip about this as she is well aware she is loved by her parents and had a fantastic upbringing.

Shared Topic: Flavours of WoW

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!!

Shared Topic: Lifechanging?

This week’s Blog Azeroth Shared Topic is suggested by Effraeti.

Very simply:

How has WoW changed your life?

Oh, you wonderful woman for suggesting such a topic, this could be a horrifically waffly post, which I love doing :)  There may even be pictures involved if I can find them :)

I have been trying to write a post for the last 3 days about how wow has changed my life and I am really struggling to put into words the changes. How can I describe the sense of achievement I get when we kill bosses, the feeling I am contributing to something with others, how do I explain to you the friendships I have built and am building every day with new people who are fun and interesting and worthwhile?

Is it even possible to put into words the comfort I get from throwing fireballs with my bare hands at huge ugly mobs when I am having a bad day, or the overwhelming pride when I kill someone in PVP before they kill me and recognise that I have actually improved my skills, or the enjoyment I get from reading and improving my character in game.

Wow has changed me in so many ways, and I don’t want to sound like a primary school teacher here, but it has taught me a lot about team work, co-operation, dealing with difficult personalities, enjoying my ability to find information, making friends – the list is endless.  I just wish it could change my temper, although it seems to be one of the few things that sets my temper off, well not the game but ignorant people :D

I am still learning things every day and WoW is still changing my life, not just through the game but through the community.  Blogging, twitter, jogging etc have all shown me that there is a huge world out there of people to meet and things to do.  I hope WoW never stops changing my life because I could not honestly imagine waking up one day and finding it not there anymore.

Here are links to some of the other bloggers post, make sure you bring tissues – you may need it for a couple of them!

Shared topic: are you playing the beta

So, once again Frinka has suggested a topic for Blog Azeroth the week.

Are you playing the MoP Beta? Why or why not? How much time are you spending there vs. the “live” servers.

Like a few other posts I have read, I was dying to get a beta key, in fact it was basically why I joined the annual pass. It was the first beta for WoW I have ever received. I missed out on all the others.

When I finally got access, I spent almost a week trying to get the darn thing to download and when I finally had enough game data to play I jumped in – not caring that there was less functionality than a hole in the ground.

As most know, the crowding was insane and questing was essentially impossible, however with all things combined I wondered whether I really wanted to play the beta after all :) solidified by people advising just recently they had to redownload up to 20gb again or something….I was very glad I decided to not bother.

So to answer the question, I played beta for about 30 minutes in total. I have since tried to avoid all the pretty stunning pictures and information about the quest lines. I want to experience it all fresh and free from subjective opinions based in the grumples in the community.

I am going to start investigating the raids though so I can plan a little better, but with just over a month to go, I am pretty excited.

So slack of me, but here is some link love for those who posted about this as well:

Shared Topic: Custom Fit Professions

Effraeti brings us a colourful topic on Blog Azeroth this week :

Professions are fun for some and a necessary evil for others.

Some of us have farming professions. Some of us have crafting professions. Some of us have a little bit of everything! Professions are leveled because they fit our style of play, help us in raiding, allow us to outfit our alts, and make us money.

What professions do you have on your main? Do his/her professions fit their personality? Why did you choose them? If you chose professions based on your character and not on gaming needs, would that change some of their professions they use?

(This can include the secondary professions of archaeology, fishing, cooking, and first aid too!)

Such a long and detailed post this is going to be, as you know, I never do anything by halves :) Here is my story…

Shared topic: Introducing RL friends to WoW

Frinka has given us another great topic this week.

Have you ever tried to introduce real life friends to WoW? If yes, how did it go? If you never have, why not?
Mine is in two parts, the story of my recruitment and me recruiting others.
My recruitment I am sure i have posted before, but since I have no idea when you all get the story again :p

Shared Topic: Single Realm

This week’s Blog Azeroth topic is from Frinka At Warcraft Street.

If it were possible, would you want Blizzard to put all characters in a single realm/game world by realm type — PvP vs PvE vs RP? Why or why not?

I am hoping I have understood this topic correctly, because I would love nothing more than to have entirely separate realms based on game type.

Of course in my perfect world, the developers for Blizzard would be just inundated with so many things they have to balance it would be unfair really :)

Shared Topic: Starstruck

Yeah ok, so you can blame me for the topic this week, and in all honesty I was going to delete it if we managed to get some more topics, but then I just got lazy because I would have to change dates on other topics, so you are stuck with it.  Given the last few weeks though I have found I would be interested in this from other people’s point of views.  We have some newer bloggers out there and they must have people or bloggers they are inspired by etc, so I am keen to find out who those on a pedestal are.

Are you starstruck by anyone? Does someone in the community respond to a post or a tweet and get you all speechless because they actually responded? Is there anyone you are waiting to have respond directly to you? Is there someone that you would like to chat to, but are too chicken? Am I the only one who puts other bloggers on a pedestal?

I also feel this could be slightly weird, given people will be named on here and how awkward it would be for those people, but blogging is about being honest and having the guts to put things out there :)  I came up with idea simply because recently a few people in the blogosphere were having their posts linked to, being interviewed and being responded to on twitter by people that i would literally be in shock if it happened to me.

Shared Topic: Nicest Thing

This one could be about 600 pages long, and in all honesty I could not mention the millions of nice things people have done for me in game.  I will try to list as many as I can though – it is always good to thank the people out there who made this game what it is and not just moan about the idiots who make it that little bit of hell :)

My first guild was full of nice people who just wanted to help :D  Auricthewise – pulled me aside one day when he saw I was wearing all manner of weird shit and explained to me that each class has specific stats..a mage wearing strength and agility was not the way to go :)  He spent a packet on the AH (back in the days before dailies so money was precious) and got me some upgrades :D  I will never forget that kindness.

Theholyman and Alexelder, trundled me through Gadzetzan and Dustwallow marsh a few times to help me quest, fun times :)  Bomma running me through Deadmines repeatedly and making me fall in love with boomkins :D

Senna, a fellow mage, i honestly can’t remember how we met, but s/he gave me money towards my first mount :) s/he also spent a lot of time with me teaching me how to duel, pvp, rotate spells.  All very important stuff as a mage!

Koliara and Dreddly – gave me a lot of support when doing the guild leading thing. That is both ingame and out as well,  but basically being officers and doing bank organisation and being class leaders after a fashion, without wanting to actually be officers. It was a blessing.

Mithraci and Cayehn- for being co-gm’s with me and dealing with the shit with me and booting people and controlling the insanity.

Those are the four major things that actually come to mind when thinking about the nicest things.  I mean after playing since Vanilla, I couldn’t just come up with one thing :)

Check out everyone elses thoughts – we are a lucky bunch if you ask me :)

Shared Topic: Rename WoW

Frinka asked a very simple, yet hard question this week for the shared topic on Blog Azeroth.

Knowing what you know now about the game, what name other than World of Warcraft would you give it? Why?

It sounds simple really, but coming up with a catchy name is harder than I thought it would be.

Some of mine are not really language safe – as is my way, so I have shoved it behind a cut to shield potential bad words :)

Shared Topic: Always want what you can’t have.

This week’s Shared topic was something I suggested because of the growing list of cool things in the game I want, but can’t have.

Initially, I have to blame my hunter for not being able to tame anything I wanted.

Let me explain :)

Shared topic : your main as an NPC

Cymre has suggested another fun topic about your main being an NPC in game, where would it be, what would be its purpose.

I have left it late because I really had a tough time trying to decide on the 14,000,000 different ideas that popped into my head.

About the only thing I was certain of was being a draenai who shapeshifts into a dragon, with shades of blue and purple and lovely violet eyes, of course I can be a shapeshifter because I am a powerful Mage :p her name would be < Dragonray, delight dealer > :)

I wish I had some drawing skills :) Similar to Valiona, but more friendly looking…and sparkly! Yes sparkly wings :)

I would like to be placed somewhere near Dolanaar where I can blend into the trees and walk among the forest, enjoying the scenery. I would like to sell collectible items with a preference for pets or mounts, but I wouldn’t mind selling patterns or recipes :) To access them you need to get your rep up with me by bringing me critters and tamed animals from all over the worlds! Lol well maybe not that last bit – although deliciously evil, I wouldn’t want to be that cruel to potential buyers!

So if anyone wants to draw me feel free :) hehe

20120613-175024.jpg

I also wanted to add, that I have always admired the way Blizzard adds toons and memoranda into the game of people that have come and gone.  I would love to be recognized like that if anything should happen to me, given that WoW is such a large part of my life.

Shared Topic: Top 3 Things

Cymre has given us a topic this week that I felt compelled to write about, it has been a while since I have done one and because this is about sentimental items – I just had to jump in!

Once again, I’m hoping this hasn’t been done already, but after the last couple of days of being hacked, I’m putting this out there.

“What are the top three items on your main that you just love for sentimental, fun or silly reasons and would hate to lose? Tell us a story, what makes them so special and as always illustrate with screenshots”

I went a little more then 3, but well, I have been playing the one toon since Vanilla…I think I deserve a little wiggle room :p

Shared Topic: Windows to the world

Martha.net has once again come up with a right cracker for a shared topic.  I cannot help but love looking at other people’s UI’s. They have such wonderful designs and mods and it makes me want all the modz!

I have not had a standard UI since Vanilla when I saw a post on our guild forums and asked how to change mine. I was in heaven from there and I have had some very very out there creations.  IN fact, I am pretty sure I have an old post somewhere in the archives about all my different UI’s over the years….hrmm….ah ha!  Here it is 

After a break from the game I generally don’t touch my UI for about 3 months, and then it is all hell for leather and I will change things on a whim.  I spent all of Sunday re-doing my UI as I was having massive trouble when raiding with being able to place spells down – like flame strike etc.  I had so much in the way and in the middle of my screen it was so annoying.  Not only that,  I had timers, and markers and reminders all over the screen – It was HORRIFIC!!!

Shared Topic : LOL Things

I am just on the cusp with this one as I have spent all week trying to upload some very short videos to youtube with no success.  It takes them all night to upload to 3% and it is driving me mental!

Instead you are now going to get pictures of said things I have found amusing or interesting and will just have to imagine them!

So I have thrown them all behind a cut for you as it is rather image intense :)
