Blog Azeroth Shared Topic: What’s in a name?

Blog AzerothBlog Azeroth is an online community of Wow Bloggers. As part of the community we have a semi-regular feature called “Shared Topic” where one blogger proposes a topic and many bloggers who are part of the community respond to that topic. This is a response to: How did you come up with your character names?

NameYour toon’s name is almost the only way you can personalize your toon. You can only choose your looks to a limited extent.. but regardless of what you choose, you’re assured that there are probably hundreds of other toons that exactly resemble your toon. When you get to end game if you’re doing it right you end up wearing the same armor as everyone else in your class. If you’re a druid.. well you’ve looked like a bear since level 10. Lucky you. /sarcasm.

Your name hangs above you and is one of the few things you can personalize.

Mains

ChoicesI didn’t do Kara last night. I had the opportunity to.. but it turns out we already had 3 healers in the raid. Suddenly West Kingdom is overrun with healers (we didn’t even have all of the healers logged in). Instead I took the night to play Lilac. My goal is to get her to 70 so that she can be my “DPS” toon. So I can still play when an additional healer isn’t necessary.

WoW Motion Sickness

I’m ba-ack ;)

Logged in today for the first time in over a week. Vacations good.

If you’ve ever taken a week off of the game then you’ve seen what I’ve seen. After you take a week off.. then for the first hour or so that you come back and play, the game is uber-beautiful and moves funny and makes me naseaus.

Evolution of a Warlock Macro

Macro CreationSo.. well.. I’m a programmer at heart. If it’s good as it is, it’d be even better if I could get a computer to do it.

Last week Lilac ran Mana Tombs and I got my first taste of warlock CC. I dutifully made up a focus macro to get seduction to work.

/cast [button:2, target=focus] Seduction
/cast Seduction

If I click this button with my right mouse button, cast seduction on my focus. Otherwise, cast it on my target

It was lovely. CC worked. Mana Tombs was a win. Then I went back to questing.. At this point I changed back to using my voidwalker.. and had a moment of “harumph”. It seems rather silly to have a button for “Seduction” on my button bar when I don’t have my Succubus out. Then I got to thinking (cue ominous music).

High King Maulgar (boring) movie and brief analysis


WWS http://wowwebstats.com/2w26zn3dvcz3u

From Wowwiki: High King Maulgar is the lord of the ogres of the Blade’s Edge Mountains of Outland, ruling from within Gruul’s Lair. His council consists of Kiggler the Crazed, Blindeye the Seer, Olm the Summoner and Krosh Firehand.

I wonder if HKM got the message that Tatia is now queen of the ogres?

High King Maulgar take two

West Kingdom paired up with Shadow Warlords again to smash High King Maulgar (we would have gone further but lots of people had to log off). WK fielded the following toons: Tatia (Holy Paladin), Fynriss (BM Hunter), Krullwyn (BM Hunter), Raouen (MM Hunter), Gongniu (Protection Warrior), Amellea (Feral Tanking Druid), Weaver (Holy Priest), Daegothh [...]

Full of suck

West Kingdom spent all night clearing trash and attempting Aran. There was no win. Sad Pandas.

If it wasn’t death by arcane bolts, it was death by flamewreath or blizzard.. or flamewreath while elementals arrived.. and then mass sheep followed by fireball. It was a long very frustrating night.

The thing is, we had this. [...]

Warlock Epic Mount Quest

My Little DreadsteedAs sad as it is to say.. Lilac was 63 and still puttering around outlands on a slow demon pony. Well no more! Lilac’s got her dreadstead. I think I will call him “Spike”.
