#Blaugust2019 – Dragons?

People may not know me well enough to know my slight obsession with dragons. When I mean slight I mean, I own a lot of dragon items in my house, my character names bar a couple all start with Dragon, I love all lore relating to dragons.

I can’t remember when I was first made aware of them as a mythological ideal, but I was a teenager when I started to consider them part of my life and started to collect them around me.

I see them as both fierce and tempestuous with intelligence and loyalty. A lot of my opinions of dragons comes from the magical world of Pern, mixed with Tolkien and various other books and mythological sources. I hope not to sound like a crazy but I see them in the shape of the clouds and in the shape of trunks/bark on trees, I take it as a great sign for the day when I see them.

I adore them, in all their fiery, scaly and inconsistent behaviours. Part of the reason I adore WoW so much is I get to ride around on dragons all day and collect dragon mounts. I don’t like having to kill them at all. But I get to ride so many different types of dragons I can’t understand why I would play any other game. I am not kidding when I say this next part. I sometimes just spend time in game flying around on my dragons doing nothing but just flying on them and admiring it.

I have always wanted a tattoo and there was never a doubt in my mind about needing a dragon. I still don’t have said tattoo and unlikely I will ever get it, but if it ever happens it will be a dragon. If anyone ever questions what they should buy me for a present I can guarantee them anything with a dragon theme will always be appreciated.

There is something about their size, grandeur and mythology which pulls me in and makes me feel part of them. Anyway, there you go, something you know about me now is my love of dragons!

#Blaugust2019 – ooooohhhhh Wrathion!!

I saw this news on twitter saying the continuation of the Azerite questline takes us to Finding Wrathion again.

From Reddit

The Black dragonflight again. Also a mount based on Deathwing can be awarded during Blizzard’s upcoming birthday. – details here.

I have no idea what else is in store, I didn’t read the post about Wrathion as I don’t want too many spoilers but I did get very excited about seeing his name again. My necklace only just hit 55 last week and I need to make a concerted effort now to get through the rest of the story based on this news alone. I know someone, maybe Simon?, in the guild mentioned you had to get your necklace to 70 for the next quest and I just looked at mine and nearly cried.

But this is what I am going to do. Quest my butt off for the next week with anything that includes Azerite and spend a morning on my weekends doing the expeditions. If I can find a group willing to do Mythic level even better, but will definitely stick to heroic to get them done. I need to get my necklace up.

We are soooo going to have dragons in the next xpac right? All dragons all day!!! GAHHH Maybe Ysera will come back somehow.

As I choose to remember her.

I get the fuzzies

Last night I was levelling my pally, I am pretty focused on getting her to 90 as soon as I can, I would like a level 90 horde toon to do things with friends on this faction.  I was pretty amped when I logged on as I knew I only had 50% to be done to get to 87.

Ding for me! Just three more to go…88 is my worst level because it is the in between one…so I was chatting to Aza who said he would run some dungeons with me when get to the “can’t keep going” point.  I am quit excited and although I hate to impose on people I adore, I have to confess to be ever so slightly excited at the prospect of getting a couple of runs under my belt with my Frostie friends.

Pally 87

For lack of a better description, I am still starstruck by a lot of people in that guild because I have been reading about them for so long, I confess to being a bit of a groupy.  It is after all by reading Nav’s blog in the first place that I met them all.  I want to be 88 already so I can start running with them, so of course I must quest!

In my travels last night, I discovered this little mob sitting by a tree :

Ferdinand

I haven’t read the book, Ferdinand the Bull, I only know of it from the movie “The Blind Side”, which is a favourite of mine.  I was so excited to see him, I couldn’t bring myself to kill him either – he is from a children’s book after all!!  <3 Blizz right now though.

I also did one of my favourite quests – mini dragons!!!!! Yes, I will try and get a picture of this quest with all of  my toons!!

Pally dragons

Of course last but certainly not least, towards the end of the night, someone jumped online that I had been dying to see since I got back, but had managed to miss every single time I was on – thanks to battle tags though, that will never be a problem again!!  But he remembered how much I loved one of his macros…(and I believe I have posted about it before) but I was so happy to see it!!

Bunny welcome

Honestly it just makes me giggle my arse off every time! It’s a bunny…driving a tank!!!!  A BUNNY!!!  Yeah, I never said i was going to make sense!! We had a very interesting discussion about analaog vs digital and measurements from the beginning of time – and I begged him to put the entire lesson into a blog post because it was so fascinating. I want to share it without stuffing up facts…but I was amazed last night and was having so much fun!

Onward to 88 I say!!

Dragons everywhere!!! OH GOD!!

So first couple of days in Pandaria and I have over 40 screenies with dragons in them.  Just dragons – everywhere!!   I can’t help myself,  I would say I am spending almost as much time taking pictures of dragons as I am actually questing! (possible exaggeration)!

I am just amazed at how wonderful the artwork is!

I was tempted NOT to hand in the quest in which you have to collect the 4 little dragons, just so I could have them wth me all the time, but I figured they wouldn’t last out of the area or even if I logged out…I didn’t want to tempt fate…but  I loved having four of them trailing around!!

This is also being added to my headers because it is pure win!

Here are some more that I got to ride on or past or around!

Seriously, I will stop here, I know it is only 4, but I would bore you all to death with just more dragons!  LOL

I am in heaven!!  DRAGON HEAVEN  TELL YOU!!
