So it’s been a while huh? I’ve sadly neglected this blog, but I swear I’ll be more active from now on.
There have been some big changes for me, both in real life and in game. So I’d better explain.
I now work full time at the pub. Which is great, but for now at least I’m working Monday, Wednesday and Thursday evenings until close. As Enthusiams raiding nights are Monday, Thursday and Friday I had to make the hard decision to change to another guild, one that had raiding times more suited to my hours. So I am now a raiding member of Oops Wrong Button on Bronze Dragonflight EU. I’m also playing a Beast Mastery Hunter as my main now. I still have characters in Enthusiasm, and I will be dropping in to visit ALOT. I cried when I left, much to G’s bemusement, not being an online gamer like myself he didn’t quite get why I was upset.
Another change in my life is me and G get married in May. So much to plan, when I think I’ve got it all sorted something else comes up, and I had a disaster with ordering my dress online (the ‘UK’ company turned out to be a Chinese shop selling knock offs of other people’s designs, they even stole photos for the original websites), but I got my money back in the end and its all back on track. G’s outfit cost more than mine! But I am geeking out to the max in one respect. I am turning up to my wedding in a DeLorean. That’s the Back to the Future car for those who don’t know. Hey, what can I say, I have love those movies since I was a little kid! I’ve always wanted to ride in a DeLorean and now I am!
Anyway, I am at work so better be getting on with things. I’ll be designing a new banner reflecting the new changes for my blog later.
I was having a chat with some guildies recently, the subject being two guilds on our server. Is it just us, or do you find certain guilds on your server are filled with asshats? I mean everytime we have grouped with members of these two guilds (I won’t name either) they have turned out to be “GOGOGOGO”, stand in the bad and down right rude types, to the point where we groan whenever we encounter any of them. Then there is one member of one of the guilds that is my own personal bugbear. The guy always seems to be around whilst I am doing my dailies, and whenever someone has nipped in and taken the item I am fighting towards, it’s ALWAYS this guy. I’m not so paranoid as to think he is doing it on purpose, he isn’t there 100% of the time, but whenever he is around, it’s ninjatastic.
So my question is this: Do only bad players join these types of guild as they are the only type that will tolerate their behaviour, or do these guilds transform good players.
I’ve not blogged about MoP yet, I guess things have just been a little too busy to get round to it, so I should really take the time to do so.
The first thing I did was roll a Pandaran Monk, though as of yet I haven’t levelled her passed lvl 12. I was very happy to get the name I wanted for her. Ok, it’s cheesy, but one of my favourite movies is Big Trouble in Little China, so I named my monk after one of the characters, Miao Yin (as we aren’t allowed spaces in names I called her Miaoyin, close enough). She’s the lady on the right (the other is Kim Cattrall from SaTC). I think she has something silly like 3 lines in the whole movies and sepnds the rest of the time being a victim, but she stuck in my mind.
But after getting Miaoyin to the point I could chose a faction I concentrated on levelling Pinkamena. She is currently 89, I hope to hit 90 in the next few days.
My first impressions were amazing. Everything looks so pretty! And the story lines are well written. I have fallen in love with the game all over again, which I am very happy about after the major Cataclysm burn out. The areas are well made and well thought out. I absolutely love the Foxicopter I saw flying around Nessingwary’s camp.
And was I the only person who saw this in the Panda starting area?
Think this was put in after the whole Ji Firepaw controversy ? Or was it always there?
Anyway, back to levelling. More later.
