Brewmaster Philomela

WoW Brewmaster Philomela
While I haven’t been terribly active in WoW recently, I haven’t completely abandoned my druid. This past week I have been logging in to do the Brewfest quests. After earning the 350 tokens to get my complete outfit to dance drunk in Dalaran, I promptly returned them to the vendor for a full refund. I then purchased the Brew of the Month Voucher and my Pint-Sized Pink Pachyderm. With the completion of Brewmaster, I also completed “What a Long, Strange Trip It’s Been” and am now the happy owner of a 310 speed Violet Proto-Drake.

Blizzcon 2009 Registration & Swag Bag

Blizzcon 2009 Registration
After standing in lines for a few hours we registered and picked up our swag bag. I was really expecting fun things given last year’s pally bubble beach ball and other miscellaneous toys.

This year they gave us a Rayner Noob and not much else which was pretty fail on Blizzards part. I know that Starcraft 2 is about to come out and that the Noob is a more expensive toy but I would have much preferred the diversity of previous years. If you aren’t a Starcraft fan and a figurine fan, then this just wasn’t worth it. We also received a Starcraft Authenticator and again not really a Starcraft fan. Besides a Blizzcon bottle of hand sanitizer, the rest of the swag bag was filled with miscellaneous advertisements.

We did get an in game World of Warcraft Murloc Space Marine pet called “Grunty” tucked in our ID tag. However, so did all of the people watching Blizzcon at home. It isn’t my favorite pet ever and again it is a little too Starcraft focused.

Rock Band and WoW

  • Posted on December 10, 2008 at 6:43 pm

If you are looking to catch up with Dio and I in a game we are currently playing WoW and Rock Band. Our druid and warrior are level 80 and we have joined the ranks of people who own Rock Band 2.

Doors of Night Heraldry

After posting the reveal on the Doors of Night Warhammer heraldry in the forums, I thought it might be nice to look back on previous heraldry chosen in other games. While the games have changed and with it the styles, Doors of Night has kept with the Black/White/Grey colors. From left to right we have the heraldry from Guild Wars, World of Warcraft, and Warhammer.

Playing Catch Up

Sorry to have missed posting last week. I have been working on my Brewfest site which I will reveal later when it is a bit more complete.

I finally finished leveling my lock to 70 and with a long weekend I spent most of it beginning the reputation and gear grind.

I have also been neglecting my Gaia gatherings with the month coming to a close I almost missed picking up my May Thank You Letter. They also added a “Badge” to be included to link to from other sites. I plan to find a home for my badge someday.

Leaving Attrition

  • Posted on May 6, 2008 at 6:46 pm

I am posting my goodbye message on my website because I know that my access to Attrition forums has been removed.

Last night I left Attrition after Tydeus pointed out that I had a new officer note that was of an unkind and untrue nature. Whoever placed the officer’s note was obviously unaware that I was able to see it. The officers note read:

“1 feral/tendancy to flip out”

Officer Note

While this may seem “tame,” as I have heard that it has been called, it is still an attack on my character by an officer. No matter how minor, I should not have to feel like I am being silently attacked while playing a video game. While I do believe that many of the people in Attrition do not feel this way, and that this is the actions of a single individual, I do not feel like I can reside in a guild where extremely passive aggressive sentiments and actions are directed towards me. Things like that officer’s note can directly impact how people interact with you and I have had bad experiences before in a guild where this sort of action lead to me being extremely unhappy as it was just a warning light of what was to come.

While many people may believe that my leaving over the note is a bit of an extreme reaction, I feel like my leaving was not because of the note itself but because of what the note represented. Last night I had a conversation with Icon about this note and in summation he much told me that no one felt that way and that every one loved Tyd and myself. Not more than an hour later, a couple of Attrition members let me know that Icon, himself, said that I really did flip out a lot and that Tydeus was likely drinking because he is always an asshole when he does. I feel like everything Icon typed in guild just justified that my leaving was not an incorrect choice.

While some of you reading this may disagree (as apparently Icon and the note writer do), I do not have a “tendency to flip out.” I did not even “flip out” as I was leaving. I was quite upset and hurt but I did not make a scene, I did not start yelling at people, and after everything I heard being said after I left (all be it second hand), I believe that I took the officer’s note as exactly what it was – a warning of a true passive aggressive attitude towards me. Getting upset over a personal attack is typically considered a justified reaction.

To all of those people that are my friends, I will desperately miss raiding with you. However, I would like to not miss you all together, so please keep in touch. If you whisper me in game I will get you set up with an account on my forums so you can always find me and Dio in any game. I have a personal vent server that you are welcome to hang out in. And finally, I would still love to group with you in game.

Dio and I dinged level 70 last night. Philomela, my druid, and Tydeus, his warrior, are finally done. Now I just need to finish leveling the rest of my characters. My mage and his druid are 62 and my priest is 61. Kara attunement here we come.

Returning to WoW

  • Posted on June 30, 2007 at 6:47 pm

As I type, I am dusting off all of my WoW characters that I thought I was retiring for good in December and I am re-installing World of Warcraft (WoW). Last week at work was kind of stressful (which is a huge understatement) and I would like to relax playing a video game. Since I have now beat Sam & Max the first season and Neverwinter Nights 2, I have run out of games I am interested in and am returning to WoW for much the same reasons I played it in the first place – there are no other better MMOs out right now. With the massive failure of Vanguard (which I avoided purchasing since I was in Beta), other games are pushing back release dates to polish the games before release and so I am returning to WoW. While playing Silverfall on a lan connection with Dio all I could think was I would rather be playing WoW and so when I finish the massive patch updates I will be returning to Azeroth. Silverfall’s biggest downfall is it’s camera angles and interface. I get the feeling the game is really cool looking but I can only really see my feet and still get a picture of the enemies surrounding me. Since I am on my last install disk, I am going to hunt down all of the mods I used to use and get them updated.
