This week I have a little request. My posting is going to go downhill for a couple of weeks. This week we have the house to ourselves, which means some peace and quiet to get a bunch of reading done and catch up on tv, and next week we’re going away to visit people, chances are it’ll take me a little settling back in before I start posting properly in the third week, so I would like to ask for guest posts just to keep the ball rolling around here. The only kinds of posts I’m not really interested in are raiding and pvp type posts unless they are aimed at the more “casual” type of player, and stories (RP or not) are great, aside from that anything goes. They would be your posts with links back to you (if you have a URL to link back to). If you can donate any unwanted posts to the Menagerie I will love you forever and perhaps eventually return the favour if you like. And please spread the word if you can! I’d really really appreciate any help I can get.
The only thing really of note this week, aside from winning the fishing contest, is Fae’s Goblinification which has been a long time coming. I’ve always preferred the “pretty” races but I just have such a soft spot for Goblins. They’re so little! So Fae the Blood Elf turned Draenei Hunter is finally short and green with awesome hair and yay for the Swift Horde Wolf‘s return! I also ninja name-changed. I never did like Faesiala, so I changed it to Faelysia which was my original second choice ((after, of course, Fae, which I should get back when I transfer back to Vashj)) and to me, it looks a lot better. Doesn’t remind me of Tikka Masala any more (mmmm…).
And the obligatory “omg all of the achievements” screenshot after a faction change. (Click to embiggen)

As promised, Fae the Goblin Hunter as a pony.

Nngh. I’ve been bad this week. I realised yesterday that I’ve spent my blog reading time primarily on book blogs and entering contests for books (I won one, yay!) and that I hadn’t kept up with the WoW blogs like I usually do. I’ve tried to make up for it but sorry if I missed any awesome posts this week! Either way, these are all very interesting reads.
Mortigan The Warlock – Made In China: Whilst I still don’t and never will agree with the practise of buying gold, Mortigan does raise a few good points about Chinese gold farming.
Priest With A Cause – What if WOTLK had never happened?: Shintar’s exploration of what Cataclysm could be like without the introduction of game mechanics brought into the game during Wrath of the Lich King.
I saw this on MMO Champion this morning and absolutely had to link it. It’s such a great but subtle idea, I love it. Although, my characters are basically going to permanently have their heads stuck in a map, I’m always going the wrong way!
Honestly guys, this is one of those weeks that has simply passed me by. I start browsing the internet and then “Whoops! Where did the day go?”
Earlier in the week I played my Hunter a fair bit. I’d decided that while she’s still Alliance, I should get Old Ironjaw to save messing around in Ironforge when she’s Horde. I installed Fishing Buddy, configured it and off I went. It took me about 150 casts and then I fancied a bit more fishing, as I’d also tried the STV fishing contest the same day and failed miserably to a Druid who fished in everybody’s pools *grumble*, so I had the fishing bug and went off to try and get a turtle. That didn’t last too long. I tried out Marksman in a couple of dungeons and it was okay but I found it a little frustrating after playing Survival, and I wasn’t completely feeling Survival either, so I tried Beastmastery and hooboy was that a good fit. I wanted something that would quickly kill things while levelling as opposed to waiting “patiently” for Aimed Shot to cast yet again, and this was just.. wow. I love it! Plus I can now use Loque’nahak (or BLUE GLOW KITTY as I affectionately call him) finally who I named Ailuros after a cat in my NaNoWriMo story. So that was some fun.
I also boosted Dan in Blackrock Spire to get us both the two pets and sod it, while we were there, some whelps died too. Kalithe has a title - yay!
And last night as Dan had finally got up to level 60 ish, I did a couple of instances with him on my Mage (that would be ‘Twylite’). I did mention this on twitter but you don’t all follow me there or catch everything I ever tweet, so I’m specced Arcane. I wanted a taste of how overpowered it is before it’s hit with the nerfbat (read: very). I think personally the fun in Mage is actually the utility rather than the playstyle. Having various survival cooldowns, buffs, dps cooldowns, Mirror Images, polymorph (I have an animal lottery macro for that), the ability to make free food, portals, that’s where the fun lies. The great damage is just icing. Anyway so there was this Rogue in the party. He’s doing about a third of my damage and obsessing over how Dan has 10k health on his level 64 tank and basically calling him sad for having 30 stam gems in his gear and such, and suddenly after the first boss tells me that I should go Frost. If there are two things I dislike, it is being called by my class (which he did but I let it slide because I still prefer ‘mage’ to ‘Twylite’), and being told what I “should” do. The guy was very difficult to understand and eventually asked if anybody speaks Swedish and spammed “hor” in party chat about twenty times before he was vote kicked and the Shaman informed us that it meant whore in Swedish.. Whether it did or not we don’t know or particularly care but yeah, he was rather odd. Thankfully the rest of the party was lovely. It was a shame Dan had to leave else we’d probably have done one or two more with those guys.
I’m still focusing on my Hunter though, despite the Maging, I just want her to be a Goblin already! I am quite glad that she already has the Midsummer pet and achievements because we’re going away on the 23rd til the 28th or 29th so we’ll miss a week of it, and probably the beginning of 4.2 as well. I’m not too worried about that though.
World of Ponycraft
Designing and sharing ponies on the pony creator (enjoy your new addiction!) became a bit of a thing on twitter last week and since then Norm has written a post over at Flavor Text which fantastically looks at the comparisons between our ingame characters, why a lot of us choose fanmade art, and the pony creator. Kamalia made a response post as well.
I also made my Blood Elf Death Knight, Kalithe:
I don’t want to make Fae as her Draenei self because I don’t want to get too attached to her before she goes Goblin, but trust me, she’s on her way to being short and green.
Screenshot of the Week
Somebody always has to get in the way of the perfect picture. Always.
Well this week has been a little.. different. Well.. I say different.. it really hasn’t. I spent a lot of it gearing up my Death Knight. I did some normal dungeons until she could enter heroics, I did some heroics, I finished the Deepholm quests and I’ve been doing dailies. I’ve also been making a fair bit of gold which isn’t necessarily relevant, but it did take up a chunk of time. When it came down to it, I’ve really, really enjoyed playing my Death Knight this past week and I did get very lucky while in Deepholm. (Hooray and squee!)
The trouble is, the guys in the guild invited a friend of theirs who also happens to be a Death Knight, as does my friend, and with a 10 man group and 3 Death Knights? It’s very unreasonable for me to think I might possibly not cause issues by wanting to raid on my Death Knight. The problem is, Death Knight is currently my favourite class. I really do love it, and I’m incredibly bored of casters right now, especially Shadow Priest, and I’m not at all interested in healing or tanking. ((I have a history of panic attacks when it comes to those roles so I just avoid them these days aside from the odd bit of healing while I’m levelling up.)) So trying to roll a melee is a problem, the guild desperately doesn’t need melee, and I desperately don’t want to play a caster, so what does that leave? Hunter, of course. The move will be expensive as she will need a faction change and a server transfer, and we’re going to have to do it in bits, but it will be nice to have some previously farmed mounts/pets/achievements, rather than starting from scratch, and be playing a class that’s both needed and I can stand to play. Even with the Hunter becoming my main again, I still prefer the Death Knight and she will definitely be a main alt, or a second main. I will do the Firelands dailies on both characters, however insane it will make me, and I’ll probably slowly work on my Death Knight’s pet collection as well as Fae’s because I’m just that crazy. But Fae will again be my achievement hunter, and main pet and mount collector. She will finally have the name Fae back (big yay!), and as I have soo many Blood Elves and aren’t a big fan of playing Tauren, Trolls, Orcs, or Undead, plus because they kick ass, she will more than likely be a Goblin (though I hear they can’t do the Argent Tournament quests at the moment?). So I may need to collect a few RSS links for decent Hunterish blogs and read a couple of guides to get me up to speed with Hunters again, I haven’t really played one properly this expansion yet. My only problem now is that it looks as though my guild have decided to start doing heroic mode raiding, for which I don’t have the gear (I’m level 82), and I’m not particularly interested in it at the moment either, but I’ll see what happens.
Ooh, and this week our guild did this:
I’m not exalted yet, but it’s nice to have Mass Resurrection and all.
The Week in News
The lion mount, the ‘Winged Guardian’, went live this week. A lot of people have been outraged over it, just as they did over the sparkly pony last year, but it’s really no big deal. It’s just a mount. I must admit though, when I first saw it I thought it looked absolutely ridiculous, since seeing it ingame I’m persuaded – it’s pretty cool looking.
There are also 8 new tameable rare pets available to Hunters in the Firelands. These are all very rare and require you to use particular tactics, different for each rare, in order to tame them. For example, one of the spiders dies when its’ rage bar empties, this rage bar fills when it is in lava, and you can only tame it when it’s at quite low rage, so you need to balance things and such. It’s supposedly quite fun. As for the models, 2 Gondria style spirit cats, 1 spirit bird, and 7 spiders. This thread links to images, videos, and information about them. I’m not sure if I’m too bothered about these models personally but it is an interesting idea to add.

Never trust Orcs with cauldrons, you can almost guarantee that they’re upto something.
As usual, there are more great posts shared in my reader, so do check those out, I’ve tried to link to people I haven’t linked to before as well. Enjoy!
Manalicious – Heroic Chimaeron (10): Vidyala’s posts always deserve a mention and I haven’t mentioned her properly yet. A lot of effort go into her guides and even if you’re not interested in raid strats, her chibis are wonderful.
Oddcraft - OMGWTFITZSOCUTEBBQ?!: This post deserves many internets just for the use of “man police”. Bravo! That and the murlocs are pretty cute.
WoW Insider – Real Life Jewelcrafter Creates Horde Pendant: Vid mentioned this in a Livestream last night and I had to link it because despite it being the “wrong colour” and “upside down”, it is a beautiful piece of jewellery and very well crafted. I love it.
In the past week I have been levelling my Death Knight some more. I completed Vashj’ir and Mount Hyjal, and I made a good start in Deepholm too, finally culminating in:
It took a hell of a lot of fumbling around near the top of my keyboard before I finally managed to land on print screen.. But yeah, I have to say that I’m really enjoying being back! A 3 month break seems very long, but it gave me enough time away for the game to de-stagnate. Okay so the Priest was a no-go, but this Death Knight is just so fun. And not just that, but I’ve enjoyed reading blogs again. It’s been a lot more than 3 months since I really enjoyed sitting down and catching up on my reader! It feels quite odd to feel a little sad when I reach the ‘O’s and realise that I’ll be all caught up soon, even if I have just spent 4 hours reading blog posts. Anyway, the Death Knight.
Kalithe is my second 85. It’s quite weird playing this Blood Elf Death Knight who had been sat at level 73 for so long, and is in fact older than Soupdragon who levelled to 80 way before she did, that it is second nature to me to skip past her in the character screen when I’m scrolling about.. that’s going to take some getting used to (or character screen rearranging OH YEAH – best patch note ever!). But yes, my second 85, at last.
She’s a Frostie, of course, I fell in love with Frost towards the end of Wrath and it’s still a damn good spec which makes me a happy panda ((not all pandas are sad)). I’m playing her as a main at the moment because my previous mains just don’t feel fun any more. It’s a shame, I’ve achieved and collected so much on both my Priest and my Hunter, but I’m bored of doing the same thing I’ve been doing since just a few months into TBC, I don’t heal, and focus feels too much like energy for my liking and I struggle with energy classes. That left the class I have always had a soft spot for – Death Knights. I try to stick to characters I’ve worked on previously because I put a lot of time into my characters, but I’m playing for fun, so sod it.
Yesterday, after the ding, I started fiddling around with SimulationCraft for the first time since Cataclysm hit and I love the way it looks now! These are my scale factors as of today:
And out of interest, my damage sources pie chart:
Yesterday, they weren’t too far off the stat weightings posted on EJ, but I’ve equipped a couple of things since then and whilst the stat priority is the same, it really seems to love haste today. I always find it interesting to see how mine compare with the optimal stat weightings put forward by the theorycrafters. My favourite part of using SimulationCraft, because after all, I am a theorycrafting noob, is letting it plop my stat weightings into Wowhead and let it list and score gear based on item slot. I particularly like the GuildOx ((based on my simulation from yesterday)) site’s list for this, though it’s no different from Wowhead. It’s nice to see what gear is best to aim for. You’ve probably noticed if you’ve been following me for any length of time that I like putting together immense gear lists. I did one for Hunters in Wrath which I kept updated, and when Cataclysm was released I did a couple for Shadow Priests as well, but Rades has already done the work for me in regards to Death Knights and he has done his gear lists much better than I ever did! So that saves me some time. Hooray for Rades!
Dan had some Valor Points on an alt so he bought me the Woe Breeder’s Boots, and I found a couple of Gurubashi Punishers for 670g each ((they’re usually about 999-1200 on my server)) so I grabbed those, though today I saw a guy wanting to sell one for 500g in trade *shakes fist*, and I started levelling her Engineering. I think I’ll get Enchanting for my second profession when I’m ready for that, that’s going to be fun (nngh). Towards the end of the evening while I was relogging to smelt I was asked if I could join the raid because they were down a dps, the deliberating of me pointing out my boredom of Priest, lack of gear on Death Knight, and lack of knowledge of the fights went on for so long that they managed to either find somebody else or end the raid. It was nice to be asked though!
The Week in News
Let’s get the “controversial” part out of the way. Normal mode raids are being nerfed to make them easier. The people are angry. My opinion? Hooray! I’ve been deliberating over raiding a little, and I’ve been worried about fucking up a lot and burnout. This change can only mean good things, and even if that wasn’t the case, it still isn’t the end of the world. The hard stuff will still be hard, and the entry level stuff will be a lot less steep. Even so, it’s not for a couple of months yet.
They’re removing the keyring. Do you know what? I found this more annoying than the raid nerfs and the resulting swell of melodramatic forum-goers. Why remove the keyring? What has the keyring ever done to you? Are you trying to punish us for having big bags and want to takeover our bag space with silly keys that one day might be useful but usually really aren’t? ((I’m a hoarder, I keep things ‘just incase’)) This is not good enough! Bring back our keyring! *ahem*
Finally, it seems they have finally sorted out the rewards for the 100 pet, 125 pet, and 150 pet achievements! This has to have been the best bit of game news all week for me. Nuts (the squirrel) is now the reward for 100 pets. For 125 pets, you’ll get a kaliri bird. And for 150 pets, and this is the good one, the Celestial Dragon (seriously, watch the video in the link, it’s such an awesome model with fantastic animations) seems to have finally shown its’ purpose! I need to get 2 more pets on my Priest if I include the 100 and 125 pet achievement rewards (otherwise she needs 4 more for 150). My Death Knight, on the other hand, won’t get it, but it will be nice to have one character who has reached the 150 pet achievement and I can always see how far I can get.

Apparently, when you use the item that turns you into a Qiraji Battle Tank, your name changes but you keep titles and everything. I like the idea that a Qiraji bug might have been doing Quel’danas dailies.
And finally, what have I been reading this week? There have been a lot of fantastic posts I’ve shared, and this has been the first week I’ve purposefully sat down to catch up on my reader, so here are a handful of those.
The first thing I want to link is something that I really think everybody should read if they haven’t. It is about gold farming ((in multiple MMOs)) being forced on people in Chinese forced labour camps for re-education. The original Guardian article can be found here, and WoW Insider has also covered it here.
I found this video on WoW Insider and it made me giggle. I love Alice in Wonderland, so I absolutely had to share it.
Stumbled across this WoW Census site over at Stories of O and OMG IT’S SO ADDICTIVE! I was supposed to be sorting through my reader, but instead I was trying to work out which is the least popular race for Mages and suchlike.
Flavor Text – Titans and Chamber Pots is Perculia’s first post about the flavour text in the Bronzebeard and Wildhammer artifacts found with Archaeology, and Dethroning the Bronzebeards is her second about the same of the Dark Iron Dwarves. Both are very interesting reads!
Kiss My Alas - Alas’ New Treadmill Computer Desk: Best idea ever! I want one. I had considered an exercise bike with a cushioned seat and something to lean your book on, but this is something else. NB: Originally wrote the blog title as ‘Kill My Alas’ – woops!
Mana Obscura – The Best Warcraft Smartphone: Whilst I don’t have a smartphone, and probably won’t do for a fair while, Gazimoff’s smartphone discussion is very interesting and useful to those of you who might be swayed by these points.
Postcards from Azeroth – #688: Fin: Riorel says goodbye. Sadface.
I don’t know if any of you remember my Sunday Link Love posts back when I was the Lazy Sniper, but I decided to bring them back. This time on a Friday. So why Friday? Well, I decided to get it going today and it’s Friday, thus it will be a Friday feature. I plan that far ahead of time! I also wanted some alliteration in the title. Deal with it. Unless you have a better idea? Because I’m pretty renowned for sucking at naming stuff.
These posts are going to be a kind of weekly medley. I plan to post my screenshot of the week, do a little bit of catch up (without repeating myself, of course), and the main point in the posts, share a bit of link love. The point in this to share posts that I’ve enjoyed reading and share blogs that I feel deserve some recognition, and not just an embellishment on my blogroll because those guys are already linked twice . So without further ado.
Jae’s Screenshot of the Week
Apparently if you fly through the blue lady area of Storm Peaks while using Vial of the Sands, you swim through the air the same way Druids in flight form do. If you happen to have a passenger at the time, hilarity ensues.
I took this screenshot when Dan came to Zul’drak to help me kill Ragemane, who I managed to get to about half health before going all splat, and then the Zul’drak Ring of Blood. He collected a few flight plans for me, though I can’t remember what the heck we were doing in Storm Peaks now.. even so, it was funny.
Firstly, I have a handful of posts to share.
Disciplinary Action – Stained Class: Fairly certain you’ll all have seen these by now, if not, go look. They are fantasmical!
I Like Pancakes – Darishea: Another arty type post. I love Traxy’s art style, there’s a lovely unique simplicity to it, and this latest one is no different.
Wowhead News – A Guide to Collecting Tabards: This guide is so handy, especially as I’m levelling a Death Knight at the moment (I don’t really like tabards on my casters) who will be requiring a nice tabard collection eventually.
The Consortium – Dalaran Limited Supply Route: Okay, so I know some people don’t like the whole buy from vendor, sell on auction house for a profit market, but it can be worthwhile and this guide for Dalaran items is pretty good.
As I’ve been away for a while, I missed a few blogs. Some of these may have been around before I quit, some may have popped up while I was gone, but it is just a handful of the blogs I’ve recently added to my reader. Enjoy.
Elfi’s World: A nice fun read. Discovered when Rades tweeted that he had been interviewed there.
Flavor Text: I only found this one today actually via Pewter’s ‘follow friday’ this morning (despite already following Norm on twitter). I’m very unobservant, this was an instant addition to my reader.
Mortigan The Warlock: Because he came back just a little bit before I quit so I never really got the chance to say this, “Squeee!”
Player Vs Auction House: A gold blog with a twist – it isn’t smothered in ads and ebooks! I love reading gold blogs, but I can’t stand all of the money making ventures a lot of them seem to take. Guess that’s what readers are for but when I find a gold blog that not only gives good advice but is also clean, it really shines.
Foo’s WoW Musings: This is another gold blog with the exact same appeal to me. Both are well worth a look, they’re good with tips.
May your Friday be Rebecca Black-less… starting now.
This spoiler warning is here for those of you who want to wait until you get your games to watch the cinematic. If that doesn’t matter to you, feel free to continue reading.
Yesterday, I was told that the cinematic has been officially released by Blizzard. I could have waited for the game release like I’ve been doing with near enough everything else (although I keep stumbling upon screenshots of the Goblin zone, so the visuals for that will be less new and exciting /sadpanda), but I love cinematics, so.. yeah, and if you haven’t seen it yet and want to:
*squee* I’m really excited for Cataclysm, though I don’t think I’m going to rush my levelling as much as I tried to for Wrath and as much as I planned to. I had been thinking about taking a tiny bit of time off work (I’m only doing Monday mornings and Friday and Saturday afternoons and it’s voluntary), but I don’t feel like I have much to rush for at the moment, and I’ll only be at work for 3 or 4 hours each time I go in, so I’ll see. Plus, it is kind of my birthday on the 7th of December, and yes I did shake my fist at Blizzard a little.. or perhaps it was just a picture of the Blizzard logo on my monitor BUT THAT STILL COUNTS! One good thing about my birthday being release date? Collector’s edition.
Today I’d like to talk about link love. Well, less ‘talk about it’, because I don’t need to tell you why it’s nice, but just to let you guys know that incase you weren’t aware – I am giving it out a lot even when I don’t post.
See, a few months back I was having trouble with my reader. Certain blogs literally wouldn’t update and that was driving me insane, so, I asked in Single Abstract Noun which readers people were using and Erc ordered me to try out Feedly, which I believe is a Google Chrome extension. It’s supposed to be the magazine style feed reader, though I like the lists. I have it set up to show blog names and article titles, if an article says in the title, for example, ‘Cataclysm’, then I can quite easily skip past it and read something without Cataclysm spoilers and I love it for that.
Anyway, being part of Google, it’s connected to Google Reader, so I was able to import my blog list from Bloglines (my old reader) and it seems to synchronise. Another feature it shares is ‘shared items’, which I started using to just bookmark posts I enjoyed to come back to for either the link love posts I used to do, or to add to my resources page later on. After a while, I realised I could link to this as a feed in my sidebar and I have done ever since.
Below my Twitter box, you should be able to see ‘Interesting Blog Posts’, which I have renamed, it used to be ‘Interesting Stuff’. and the feed link in the little orange icon should work, if not try clicking here. I share posts that I find interesting, useful, and funny, so take a look, they’re worth reading. You might find something new.
I’d also like to ask you while I’m doing a more generic blogging post what you guys think of the theme changes? Apart from, “Dear God, woman, stop changing your damn theme every 10 minutes!” Because trust me, I know, but I’ve gone back to the old theme that I quite liked, couldn’t find anything else I was 100% happy with. I like the header and the sidebar, I’m just not sure about the background. Anything you might change perhaps? Feedback/constructive criticism is appreciated.
To some of you, I’m sure the fact that Dan won’t be posting here any more is great news, and to the rest of you, it isn’t. For those of you who don’t like this news so much – don’t worry, he’s just decided to start his own blog. So now I can flail about while he goes completely uncensored, with nobody to tell him that hey, that 4 lettered c word is great, but think of the children! I’m sure it will be fine. *bites nails*
He’s only planning to post sporadically, whenever he feels like it, so if you want to follow him, I recommend you add ‘I Gem Crit‘ to your readers. Go say hi!
This week has been pretty drama filled, and there are a fair few response posts I could link to, but I don’t want to link to anything related to the posts and blogs that have caused the huge discussion that has taken place this week, that needs to be left alone now. Rather, I would like to link to a couple of blog posts discussing the topic, not the bloggers, in a mature and adult way. First of all, Byaghro of Diabolical Minds wrote a post on Social Responsibility and Blogging, I respect how objective he remained whilst raising some excellent points. Windsoar equally wrote an awesome objective post, or in her own words a Rambling Commentary on Recent Events. Both posts give you something to think about, whether you agree with them or not.
Not everything has been about the drama this week, thank God, in fact, there has been a string of blogging related topics. One which actually originated from a Blog Azeroth discussion: Why do you blog? Both Gypsy and Dristanel decided to respond in post form and I loved reading both responses, and I can honestly say that there is a little of my own reasons in both posts. Saresa has written a wonderful guide for people who are thinking about starting their own blog but may perhaps need a few tips, So, You Want To Blog?
I know I don’t blog too much about hunters these days, but I still read the hunter blogs and I find this guide on using FemaleDwarf.com from Rilgon absolutely awesome. I wasn’t aware that it is basically the same as the Excel Spreadsheet, so now I don’t feel quite as bad for using it myself!
Daily Quests is a web comic which I find to be quite unique with its blog sections, and I’m particularly fond of Vas’ lore section. I’ve learnt quite a lot about lore from reading his column and this week has been no different in his discussion of The Half Breed and the Human, Med’an, the son of Medivh.
There have been many levelling guides around this week and here’s just a handful of the few I found particularly informative. Windsoar posted her guide on Druiding it Up: 1-10. Okay, so, Tarinae’s guide to levelling a healadin may have technically been last week, but I felt I should include it as I read it this week *stomps* my blog, my rules! Also, I particularly enjoy levelling Death Knights. I’m not entirely sure why, I already have one at 80 and I don’t really intend to level more, but I find them pretty damn fun and Skeleton Jack’s introduction guide to levelling a DK is a very good starting point. All in all, whatever you level, try to have some fun, go against what everybody else tells you is best if that’s what you want to do, but tips and guides are always nice to get you started, especially if you want to level efficiently.
Last but not least, what is a week’s round up without a few fun posts? The wonderful Zalduun has informed us of a few things that we may not know about Dalaran. I didn’t know there was a shoe shiner, and I haven’t been able to find the lighting up Dalaran guy since the very beginning of Wrath! I love little tidbits like this. Something quite interesting from Arioch, clearly she has a WoW Model Viewer addiction at the moment (prove me wrong), but that’s not necessarily a bad thing. Take a look at the different models, do you sleep the same way your character does? Looking at it, I do sleep like the female Blood Elf. How did you sleep last night? Have you checked your horoscope this week? What’s your sign? I think I have a little of the Overachiever in me, but I’m mostly an Altoholic.
