As You Command

April 15, 2014

Well, I made the mistake had the honour of reading our dear Warchief’s Liebster Award post, wherein he commanded everyone who read it to answer his questions. Therefore, I deemed it appropriate to follow his instructions. I do like my hair and it would get terribly messed up if he were to decapitate me.

1. Do you write a blog? Link it here if so!

If you are reading this, you know the answer to that question. Reputation Grind

2. What was the first Azerothian blog you ever read? Was there an early memorable post that hooked you?

Someone else mentioned Big Red Kitty, which was definitely one of my first and most favorite blogs to read. But the one that got me started on blogging was called Critical QQ, written by a clever and very entertaining troll mage by the name of Euripedes. To this day, my hunter Junahu’s precious Loque’nahak carries the name Euripedes in his honour.

3. Recommended reading, part one! Link and endorse three bloggers that you’d encourage your fellow readers and minions should check out.

Well, many readers probably know these, but that’s ok.
That Was An Accident!
Tome of the Ancient
WoW Misadventures

4. Recommended reading, part two — link one single post, from wherever, that makes you think “OMG, people HAVE to read this.”

It hasn’t been written yet. Someone has been slacking on the character profiles. Fortunately, it’s not really possible for Edwin to die before it gets done.

5. How long have you been reading the Command Board? What post or storyline was your jumping-on point?

I have been here from the beginning. At least, within the first two or three posts.

6. One more chance for shameless self-promotion: Are you on Twitter? Give yourself a non-Friday #FF here if so. Also feel free to recommend a few accounts worth following.

I have an account. I never log into it. 255 characters or whatever it is just is not enough for me. I prefer to use the blog for communication.

7. What class do you play on Earth Online? (Don’t try to deny that you play. I know my readers.)

Administrative Assistant.

8. What real-life ability to do you wish your Earth Online character could use?

I … can’t decide. Although … you know, my EO character DOES work at a zoo, so the hunter’s Tame Beast would be quite useful. She wouldn’t be allowed to just wander around with a large predator at her heels though, so maybe not. Teleport would probably be better.

9. Here, I’ll throw a bone to Utvoch. The age-old hoof question: Fem-taur or draenei girls?

Femtaur all the way! Go furry or go home.

10. Whose head would you rather have on a pike, Varian’s or Magatha’s?

Magatha’s. RIP Cairne 😦

If the world were going to end (or change substantially) in, say, oh, six months or so, what would be your bucket list of things you’d want to get done first?

Would it be really strange if there really wasn’t anything? I hate having my routine thrown off, and that would seriously mess things up.

Ok Mr. Warchief, Sir, am I off the hook?

Alt Week: Monk

September 19, 2013

Of course I have monks. I’m an altoholic, remember?

Giska

My journey into monks started with a conversation with Averry, asking if I had a baby orc he could add to the DPS group for his blog. I already had toons in his guild, so I simply rolled a new one and leveled her up to 10 so he could view her on the armory.

I had so much fun, though, that she didn’t stay at 10 very long. She’s made it to level 50, and also, eventually, made it into the comic on the Command Board. Gurtash did a really nice job drawing her, I love it!

Adryen

As an earlier post indicated, Adryen was rolled to get the undead monk achievement for SR.

Adryen is further along than Giska. Then again, he’s been tightly focused on getting levels, whereas Giska has merrily trotted around, earning zone completion achievements and trying to keep up on her leatherworking. He’s up to 83, so his original goal is in sight. He still doesn’t have professions, really, which is so strange for me. Also, no one has commented on his name which makes me kind of sad.

I do have an Alliance monk as well, Kimchii, but she is only 15. She’s going to try leveling up through LFD as a mistweaver … someday.

This Just Will Not Do

April 18, 2013

For those of you who missed it, there was a rap battle between Garrosh and Varian on Sunday night at The Warchief’s Command Board. A poll was put up to determine the winner. Clearly Garrosh’s EPIC VERSE should come out on top. Yet somehow, some way, Varian is winning. I mean, There are even HORDE voting for him. Now, I understand that faction loyalties should not matter for something like this … IN THEORY. We all know that isn’t how things work in reality though, right? RIGHT?!?

Ok. Maybe I was wrong. It seems that, just as there are Horde voting for Varian, there are also Alliance voting for Garrosh. Carry on then.

And if you have any suggestions for future matchups, make sure to drop them in the comments on the Command Board!
