A new addition.

So after years of prodding, my good friend Sassy has started playing WoW again! She had a trial account that previously expired, but hopefully it’ll stick this time around. We started her off as a paladin, figuring it was the most versatile and durable for a beginner. And because we’ll hopefully be able to train her as a raid healer as time goes by 😉 Took her for a tour through Eastern Kingdoms on my flying rocket this morning and managed to ding her from just exploration and picking up flight points. Will try to get through most of Kalimdor …

Just in time for Halloween…

Had a rather interesting bug this weekend… …in which my nelf druid’s skin got mapped to my human mage’s body. And, erm, it’s not very pretty. However, I’m sure my nelf will be delighted to know that they apparently wear the same size robe, despite a huge height difference. What’s a bit of wardrobe swapping amongst friends?

My Hunter Flipbook

My hunter is my main and the toon I most enjoy playing. Heck, she’s the one this blog’s title mostly refers to. However, as I scrolled through my older entries, I realized that I didn’t really post a lot of pictures from when she was leveling and upgrading, like I have been with my other toons. Tons of piccies of alts, but strangely few of the one that I see the most of. Not having early pics is understandable, since I didn’t even think to screencap methodically until halfway through my second toon. But I’ve had a stack of caps …

Insta-boom.

So due to a mixup with raiding schedules yesterday, my hunter ended up getting locked out of the Naxx run that she was supposed to attend on Sunday evening. Which was kinda stinky because I’d really hoped to get her a pair of shoulders from that run, but left the door open for another DPS to enter the picture. Another DPS which I happened to have in the form of a newly dinged balance druid. Now, I’d planned to let her cool her fluffy little heels and start gearing slowly, but with a deadline to be performing 2K+ DPS unbuffed …

Druid ding!

My druid hit 80 yesterday, making her my second toon to hit the level cap. I’m feeling especially accomplished with her because she went through her Northrend leveling with no flying ability whatsoever, a self-imposed restriction due to low funds and a desire to prove that flight is a luxury, not a necessity. There was something terribly funny about a giant flightless laser chicken waddling her way through the snowy wastes and giving the middle feather to all the mocking flight-form ravens that whizzed by her.   We last saw Anoela at level 74, still in a mishmash of Outland …

State of the Druid

I’ve been leveling my druid recently, to help combat the healer shortage that our guild (and most guilds, I’d wager) is feeling right now. Of course, leveling a druid as resto would still be annoying even with the new spell power changes, so she was respecced to balance the minute she landed on Northrend. Which was sad, since she’d worked so hard on her healing gear, but also cool in that it’s been ages since I’ve been able to play around with all the toys that boomkins get. From tree to laser chicken in 1 minute. Of course, leaving resto …

Fall Fashion Preview

Wasn’t it just a week ago I did one of these? Wow, leveling goes fast. My pally has learned how to wear plate armor! How one can “learn” this is something I still question, but any opportunity to shop is a good one, I always say. So my mains dutifully forwarded her a generous wardrobe fund so she could be outfitted in the most current gaudily-colored greens available. The result, I must say, is rather disappointing. Maybe it’s to differentiate plate from mail, but those pants definitely make her look very heavy around the thighs. Most distressing. Luckily, when she …

State of the toons address.

Yet another of my “stand back and boggle at their wardrobe” posts 🙂 Can’t say that the last five levels have been kind to my poor pally. I had a hint of this back when I saw the horrid things my boy’s warrior was constantly finding himself in, but it’s still a shock when you have to see it on your own toon. Sigh. The stats are great, but that hauberk is probably the single biggest motivator for level 30s to get a tabard. Even if they don’t belong to a guild. But at least it covers up her chest …
