20 Days of WoW Blogging: Day 3

Ah! I missed Day 3 yesterday, so here it is. For those of you paying attention, sorry about missing yesterday!

Day 3: Your first day playing WoW
This strikes me for some reason as an odd thing to blog about.

My first day playing while I was still playing on the 10-day trial, I rolled a Troll warrior on The Underbog, a PvP server, because one of my friends insisted that a PvP server was the BEST way to enjoy the game. I remember I had gotten her to about level 13 or 15 and I don’t even think I had spent her talent points yet. Most of the leveling was thanks to killing plainstriders on one of the mountains in the Barrens while I looked for my class quest objective (turned out I had been killing things on the WRONG DAMN MOUNTAIN for about 45 minutes). Then later that evening while at the Crossroads, figuring out what I wanted/needed to do next, I was asked to tank Wailing Caverns.
Tank? What’s that?
A dungeon? What’s that?
At this point I feel I should mention that I was wielding a 2-handed sword and probably had some cloth and/or leather gear on.
While I had no idea what exactly I was being asked to do, I gave the other people fair warning of it, and followed them in. What happened next can be quickly summed up as 30+ minutes of them yelling at me “Warrior come hit these things and get them off the healer!” Needless to say I was pretty anxious and upset by the time I had the courage to say “Guys, I can’t do this. Sorry.”

So, yep. There ya go. My first day of playing WoW. Usually happenings like that will put me off completely from something, so in retrospect I find it surprising that that run didn’t put me off from WoW.

Day 4 of this meme will be so much better – promise!


20 Days of WoW Blogging: Day 2

Day 2: Why you decided to start a blog

To be honest, I’m not quite sure there’s one good solid reason I started a blog, which sounds rather lame. I enjoy sharing my opinions, and I enjoy WoW, so it seemed like a good next step to make a WoW blog 😉

I’ll admit, having a Wow blog hasn’t exactly followed the plan I had for it. I had originally hoped for this to be mainly about huntering and a little bit of alts. Then it turned into alts and other assorted game-related topics. And now I’m using the blog as a place for healing-related things and fun stuff like this.

20 Days of WoW Blogging: Day 1

I’ve seen this floating around a few other blogs and I figured I’d give it a try. At the very least it’ll be nice to give some activity to The Azeroth Log!

Day 1: Introduce Yourself

I always feel sort of silly writing these sorts of posts – I’m one of those people who never really know what to say about myself. What is too much or what isn’t enough. We’ll see where this takes us though.

Most people in game know me as Kandin (My MM hunter), and people who have gotten to know me more recently know me as Mertaka (Resto shaman) or Crimiia (Holy paladin). I play 99% of the time on the Horde-side of Velen(US). I mostly do PvE, but this expansion has seen a healthy appreciation of PvP on at least 3 of my characters. I am the GM of my guild, Sanctis Draconis which has been a very rewarding experience so far for the most part. I play WoW with my husband who is known in game as Kazishini (or “Kaz” for short), a Destro/Demo warlock. Even though Velen is a Normal server, I do enjoy a little bit of RP and have been lucky enough very recently to find someone who is willing to indulge me! It’s also something I’ve been meaning to throw into the blog a bit.

Me in meat space (if this sort of thing interests anybody), I’m currently a housewife because I can’t teach, drive truck, or possess the knowledge to operate factory machinery. I’m 26 and still trying to figure out what it is I want to do with my life, even though I went to university for English. No, I never wanted to teach with it. I’m thinking about picking up and writing a little bit lately, which is rather big to me since I haven’t written anything creatively in about….3 years.

Well, I do feel like I’ve said enough – stay tuned for hopefully 19 more days!
