My Legion Bucketlist

A few weeks ago I saw posts going around about people’s bucketlists and I have watched multiple videos about the topic since the release date of BfA was announced.

So I thought I should actually gather my thoughts and post one so I can refer to and sucker my friends in to help me 😀  [*hint*] [*hint*]

Brawler’s GuildDONE!
Awake the Drakes – Got one less to go – still need 2 more!
Glory of the Dragon Soul Raider
– Chromatic Champion

Chromie Scenario/Reputation – attempted once – couldn’t figure it out.
Mage Tower challengeScrew that place to the pits of hell!
Collect pets on Argus
Make 5 million gold – Started – HA!
Mind WyrmDONE!
Pandaria/Legion achievements – started chasing
Forgotten hippogryph – got to 4 out of 5 stones at least 3 times now. Over 10 hours searching.
Finish my Firelands legendary.

There you go – that is my list.  I would like to get it all completed beforehand but I suspect I might be pushing it. Let’s see how we go, most of them are on my mage as she has the highest rep count and achievements.  What are you working on trying to get done?

Backdating

I have decided to start trying to locate posts from prior to this current iteration of my blog.  I have a huge chunk missing when I changed to self hosting and didn’t keep any form of back up. (I was certain I would never be back).

So I am going to import a bunch of old posts from my wordpress hosted site, which stems from 2014 to a spattering of 2009. This shouldn’t cause too many issues as wordpress to wordpress has a pretty good import function. I am going to test it out now, so buy the time this post is live you should be able to see historical posts….<crosses fingers super tight>.

I am not sure how well this entire idea that will go in all honesty. I think it could get super messy real fast and make it almost impossible to deal with. Broken links, missing pictures, horrid typing…oh it will all be there.  I will have to try and fix it over time.  I dread even looking at categories/tags on posts <shudder>.  I was such a messy blogger back then.

Once that is done I will start trolling web archive pages to find posts since then and add them in where I can. I will also be adding in some pages that have disappeared over time for competitions I have entered. I

This is going to be one hell of a long journey so if you see anything hincky or messed up – let me know. I would love to fix it as quickly as possible.

Send me some luck people!

My set up

After fixing bits and pieces post-KL I decided to start my pet project to make our pc gaming room more ‘geek’.

We have, for the longest time, kept saying we needed to make our home feel more like us yet we just don’t seem to get round to doing it. I have so many posters languishing in postage tubes and plastic that haven’t seen the light of day in the years since their purchase.

One being this lovely poster from “Porco Rosso” one of Drew’s favourite anime’s by Studio Ghibli. It is so old now though it is hard to find merchandise for it.

I promise it is hanging on the wall straight! I am just bad at photos 🙂

I also have moved some of my Chibis in there – I need to buy a couple more frames – which I am hoping to do next weekend.

This of course brings me to my LED obsession! Not that I have one but I promise if I could have LED light bulbs I would have them in here as well.

This is what my room looks like with our corsair keyboards and my LED strip which rotates through colours.

My seat is on the right – closest too the window. How awesome does it look when the lights are off?!?

Behind us we have our little geek case. Stuffed toys on top with Warcraft/Cthulhu/Dragons/Mario Kart represented. It also contains comic books and other random bits and pieces. Below these section are two boxes one holds all the extra crap you have in pc rooms like cables, spare mice/keyboards etc etc and the other box holds just generic things like boxes/manuals etc.

I have more planned but it is definitely a great start to the change over! I just wish I had more time and money!

IRL Ding!!

It is my birthday today.

Another year older and another year addicted to my favourite game.

I wish there was something you could do in game on your birthday which gave you a random mount or pet based on the ones missing from your collection. Like a spin the wheel or once off mini boss dungeon.

I have plans this weekend to have dinner with some of the best people I have ever known at such a hyped up restaurant (Mjolner) I am losing my mind in excitement.

It is also Drew’s birthday in 7 days so the dinner is for both of us to celebrate! I plan on taking photos but I also plan on drinking so it may not happen.

I have one of my presents already which is a kickstarter for one of my favourite books Green Rider. I am so excited and happy. The second present is apparently a million times better but is late for arrival. I have no idea what it is but Drew says it is amazing.

I hope you all have a fantastic day I know I will be just chilling out 🙂

The Riddle and the worm

Drew and I were watching the following video about obtaining the Lucid Nightmare mount by Bellular Gaming.

It reminded me of the Riddler’s Mind-Worm which I have been wanting to get for a while. I had never bothered as I figured it would take me a heck of a lot longer than I was willing, however tonight inspired me so I messaged the group (Drew, Michael & Ben) and asked if they felt up to the effort. Guaranteed mount for a little bit of flying around sounded like a plan.

I would love to attempt the other mount, but it looks way more involved…especially the maze room…not sure I would make it through that at all.

We jumped online and started the mission. I went on my mage as I figure having ports was going to be the most useful way of travel should we need to bounce around. Honestly if you are going to attempt this – get a mage who can port you back and forth – it makes it so much easier. No idea how long this would have taken with dependency on hearthstones.

You only need to read 8 pages then head to Westfall for the final part where you loot a chest and voila!

The chest on the west coast of Westfall and we found it towards the north end of the coast line.  Simply click and BAM! Mount.

Only one of the ugliest damn mounts that ever there was!!  LOL but I wanted it for that reason.

And getting a group photo was even harder due to the movement of the mount.  I really like the little chest on the back, but it would have been cool if it was a usable bank or something.

ahhahah SOOOOOOO ugly!!  I love it.  There is simply no good angle to get a photo of these guys. All in all I think it took us about an hour – maybe slightly longer, but not much more. I would suggest if you were putting it off, just get it done.  It won’t take you long at all.

And the “poem” from all the pages reads as follows:

...of Sea, Spirit and self…
…first of lords to fall…
…the wind, the eye…
…the plume, the tomb, a scarab moon…
…in snow, sand, and stone…
…behold the battle, unblinking…
…bejeweled watcher…
…ray of sunrise….

Now to contemplate the nightmare more seriously.

 

Lost Mail

I have been randomly checking out Dalaran for the lost mail envelope. Not with any great amount of seriousness but just incase.  I actually found it last night!

It is a little bit of fun, and on the plus side if you get the first achievement completed you get another lost mail item to send to someone.

So you receive a quest to start you off:

You go and check out Madam Goya and some poor orcs life is spared as you turn up just in time for him to have paid off his debt to her.

The post master summons you after that to a pipe near the pet cemetery and you drop into an awesome looking room.  My new favourite location honestly.

It is such a cool room, floating mail and little elementals etc.  I adore everything about this room.  The post master sends you on a couple of missions, one carrying some heavy stones which is in relation to a story about someone who sent bricks through the postal service as it was the cheapest method of delivery. You can read about it here.

Once you complete that he sends you to ICC to collect Invincible Reins and then find Johnny Awesome who is relaxing by some hot springs.

This is where the fun starts for me, you are supposed to deal with a goblin. Except. The Goblins hate me. Mostly all of them.  I blame my Bloodsail Admiral title of course.

Of course it took me forever to realise the goblin wouldn’t talk to me, until Drew eventually notices a comment about reputation.  So I had to go to Tanaris and kill mobs for 5 rep per kill until I reached neutral with Gadgetzan.  Thankfully I had started working on my rep a few xpacs ago so it only took about 20  minutes with the super fast spawn rate of the pirates now.

After all that you get The Total Package. You get a lovely pet as well Mailemental, look how cute he is with his little envelope? Gah. I love the little details.

After sorting 30 envelopes in under 1 minute you also get an achievement Post Haste.  A name of a place pops up on screen and you have to select the correct mail tube for it to be sent into.  It is harder than is sounds.  Ultimately Drew completed this before me, after calling me a WoW nerd and saying I would be able to ace it.  I did then complete it after him so I don’t feel quite so guilty.

Kalimdor, Eastern Kingdoms, Outland, Northrend, Pandaria, Broken Isles is the order of the tubes above.  To get the Postmaster title you have to do it with only partial names.  So as an example Brill, Tirisfal Glades pops up and you select the Eastern Kindgom tube.  In the Postmaster achievement you would only get Brill pop up.  Tis ok for somewhere like Brill but when it gives you a random city from one of the xpacs it is so much harder.

I am not there yet…but I am going to keep going.

Back…Again

So I am back again 😀

I did lose a lot of posts due to my last cancellation and to retrieve them it was going to be $750.  I have decided then I will just try and upload the posts I can find from my phone and also web history archive.\

I am going to be missing a lot of the images until I am back home and on my actual pc to upload them.  In the mean time old posts prior to this one are just that. Old and incomplete.

I have added a couple of posts about the last few days/weeks and I will try and back date a couple more to fill out more recent events but as all things, we have to start to build up again 😀

Thanks for coming back dear reader and I hope you are willing to spread the love, posts and comments 🙂 See you in Azeroth.

Fluff about Friday

Quick update on some of my achievements in WoW since I have been overseas.  Yes I have been playing as I managed to get sick and haven’t really been keen to go outside in the humidity feeling like I do!

But, I did manage to get my noble bunny the day before it stopped.  I could have sworn they increased the eggs again this year as I had not trouble at all in razor hill doing laps with a few other people and always finding eggs.

I also managed to finally get enough AP to complete my weapon, and only today have I managed to actually collect enough to select all ranks.  Not sure what I do now, do I just keep any further AP tokens for when I change weapons or do I change anyway so I can complete them <shrug> something to consider anyway.

I have also completed 2 Fel assaults now, one in Stormheim and one in Highmountain.  I hadn’t realised I needed to so scenarios etc and I was wondering why I was not completing them in the achievement.  Now I know. I only have 2 wait for 2 more to pop up.

I did Highmountain this morning.

Overall quite enjoyable and I hope to get the others completed soon.  I am still working on our flying achievements and if we have time we might get the Suramar stuff done this weekend with any luck. It will put us one step closer to getting there. I think we will only need the armies of legion rep to get it.

But just a quick update as you can see – I haven’t really been doing much, no world quests and barely anything useful really, but I am an addict and do miss the game.

Broken Shore. Broken Lore?

I am not entirely solid on what I should be doing on the shore.  It seems to be rather similar to Timeless Isle in that there are mobs up to kill, but the majority of the time I can’t be bothered just uselessly killing mobs.  It isn’t like the invasion points are active, I have managed to only do half of Val’S and part of Azsuna as each time I get to the spot about 3 minutes later it ends.

GAH.  I just have no idea what I am supposed to do.  I am bored and confused. I feel dumb.

I did manage to build my command centre, and the nether disruptor. Sadly the disruptor has now been destroyed and I have no idea what that means.  Do we get it back? Can we rebuild? Does it mean we are losing to the demons?  I just have no idea and I tried investigating earlier but didn’t find much in my very brief search.  I will continue to investigate.

On the positive side I am loving the 400 nether shard vendor for gear.  Upgrading my crappy blue pants finally got me to epic levels of gear.  Bloody brilliant.  I have perhaps 3 other pieces I can upgrade with shards as well but just haven’t done it yet.

That change to my one piece of gear puts me at 866, which was a fair improvement from a few weeks ago even.  I am still a way off 890 but I am slowly getting there.  I might run some more LFR’s over this easter long weekend and see if I can get any more legendaries :p

Part of the quest chain was to get another champion on my side.  This saw me heading to Crimson Thicket to kill some mobs, collect some scrolls and some other items in my class hall.  All to end up on the top of Dalaran building a weapon out of a caged demon soul.   The slowly purple ball to the right hand side is the demon trapped soul.  It attacks any mobs that come near it.  It is very effective.

Yup, if it fails I will have been directly responsible for the destruction of the entire planet potentially.  I would also like to point out, that in the interim, it was me that protected and saved Malarian.  I came up with the idea and if it wasn’t for me or the mages of Azeroth you would not be able to be cozy and safe in Dalaran.  Yeah, the vending machines still look out for others :p

Here I am looking down from the top spire of Dalaran before performing the equivalent of 789003830 nuclear bombs 😀

I can only assume because I am so bold and sure of myself, Aethas decided I was worth following into battle and potential death. Crazy as that may be, he was willing to fight the demons along side me.  I now have 6 active followers (yay) and need so many more armour sets it isn’t funny.

20,000 views under the sea

Since I started this blog on it’s own domain I only have stats from January 2014 – however I have managed to hit 20,000 views!

I think that is a very impressive amount!! I was hoping to actually get the image showing 20,000, but it happened overnight whilst I was sleeping :)  The best views I have had on one day was 205 which I believe would have been related to the transmog competition I ran last year.  I generally sit on about 50 views a day at the moment with a varied amount of visitors anywhere between 15 – 40…but I have quite a few people who RSS and don’t actually come to my blog so I know I have more people reading than this shows.

I am amazed at how many countries come here…I wonder how many are not legitimate or are from spamming companies. I have a pretty broad selection in here and I am happy about that!

I thought I would do something special for my 20,000 view and I was thinking of another transmog competition, but I wasn’t sure if the shine of transmog had worn off as there seems to be less and less competitions running – or perhaps I am just out of the loop.  I had a fantastic idea for a group transmog event thing – that was less competition and more fun..but may be hard to get happening.  It would need at least 9 people if you did three groups of 3 people (or even 4) and I don’t think I could get 9 people interested.

But aside from that crazy idea…I have enjoyed keeping a record of my ingame life. It gives me a sense of achievement.  I like having made the friends I have made through blogging.

So thank you.

Each and every one of you that have dropped past, commented, read, laughed or even just read 1 post on here.  I appreciate the time and the connection!  Feel free to drop past on twitter or FB and follow me there as well!

Apparently i am lazy in game as well….

Thela gave me a beta key to Everquest Landmark as my prize for winning the month of April, and so I figured I should get into it and have a go.

It seems to be a pretty time intensive game – to start up a little plot of land anyway, and I know it is a closed beta so there are some issues, but I am not entirely sure how well it will sit with me for a game over time.

I have been slack and not taken any pictures, I might try and get some tonight before the post goes live – so if there are pictures below – you know I remembered to do it!!

Firstly, there is absolutely no guidance in game as to what I am supposed to do.  It has always been a pet hate of mine when you log into a game and get no idea of what you are supposed to be doing.  I don’t want to play a game but spend half the time reading sites and watching youtube videos to understand basic gameplay or basic goals.  It took me over an hour to find on the various wikis that the reason I couldn’t claim land was because I didn’t have a flag and then more time figuring out I had to actually make said flag.

claim flag

This was after me spending time running around miles from anywhere to find land I could actually claim…I then had to get all the way back to the start…grrrr…

portal

Anyway, aside from that little hiccup, I am spending most of my time mining resources and logging and collecting things I need to make my little plot grow.  I am currently trying to locate some plain wood, but I may be in the wrong environment to do so, I have to switch to another area and try and find some more trees. This little issue is preventing me from making a forge at my site and so I need to do it asap if I am ever going to have any hope of building up – I don’t want to have to keep running back to the main area.

plain wood

 

The mining is pretty fun I have to admit, you get to dig right under the ground and make long tunnels in the ground.  I have been enjoying just seeing how far down some veins of minerals go.  It is slightly boring though as you just sort of hold the mouse button down over the place and it just keeps going.

Mining

digging

in the hole

Like all city building games though – you have to gather before you can start doing anything exciting, and so I just have to get through this boring period of gathering.

Once I had gathered enough for a flag to claim my land, I started building a little bit of a wall, however, I have been unable to figure out how to make the wall out of anything other than dirt.  I am guessing – I need to build my forge and other components before I can start making fancy walls.

my plot

My plan is to make a sparkling castle out of gems and gold.  Well that’s my plan – no idea if it is even possible, so far I have only seen a few gems, aquamarine and tourmaline, but I am hoping I get more variety later so I can continue to make my walls sparkle 🙂  The game says I can build anything I can imagine….so…let’s see if I can ….

my building

I have discovered though I don’t like having to sit there and gather myself – I am lazy, I want peons or serfs to do it for me, I like logging in and having all the resources I need just given to me for their work.  I don’t want to actually resource gather myself!

Let’s see how we go anyway…see how much of a building I can develop.

Mog the world in 80 days!!! It is coming!

It starts this coming weekend!!

Are you ready?  Do you have some outfits already planned?

Shared topic – Mountable Mounts

This topic was brought to you by, me!!  YAY!!  [ insert ping back ].

One of the things I have noticed since my return is the huge amount of mounts available now through rep gains. I am still working on a couple, but it has made me wonder which mounts you guys are loving or hating :)

So what are your top 5 mounts – or just the ones you go to all the time because you like the way they ride? What are the ones you really dislike and can never bring yourself to use – does it rub against your collecting nature (if you have one) to buy all the mounts even though you know you will never use them?

The story behind this topic is quite short so, let me give it to  you.  I finally reached exalted for Golden Lotus and thought to myself that one of those sexy riding cranes would be awesome….so I went and bought one, awesome looking thing that it is….sadly..it is absolutely horrific to ride. The way it moves is just completely irritating, however, even after trying the first one, I had to buy the rest of them and try them, just to make sure they all sucked.  Yup, I could not let 2 other mounts be uncollected even though I hate it.   So who is the idiot who dropped 4k on mounts even though she will never ever use them?

WoWScrnShot_011014_143419

The only exception to this rule is the $14k mammoth.I refuse to pay that much money for a mount that I despise almost as much as the cranes.  I was so excited to get a mammoth, they looked awesome, imposing and just fantastic….shame that riding one made me want to punch my monitor :p I still love looking at them even now!

WoWScrnShot_011014_143141

I put the Elekks in the same group as mammoths, although not quite as extreme hatred, I won’t willingly choose to use them 9and I did buy all of them when I could).

WoWScrnShot_011014_143237

But in truth, I like more mounts than I dislike…I can never decide what to use, I need to download the addon that randomly chooses them for you, I loved always being surprised with choice.  But here are some pictures of my favourite ones. I turn to these guys all the time and really should give them a rest occasionally 🙂  Tigers/sabres are my absolute favourite, I was devastated when I discovered I couldn’t get one without being exalted – back in WoW, when getting exalted took the entire cloth supply of Azeroth!  Now I have many many many tiger mounts 🙂

WoWScrnShot_011014_143322

I also fell in love with this little beauty and did not stop until I had him…which reminds me I have so many more I need to collect at the Argent tournie still…but it just terrifies me!!

WoWScrnShot_011014_143358

I do love bears as well, I have many of them as well, I love the lop sided run they do…

WoWScrnShot_011014_143609

Of course anything draconic for flying…I have so many dragons I could not possibly put them all up, but here are my most treasured ones:

WoWScrnShot_011014_143510

I still want to 25 man version of the above one, but have a few achievements I need…maybe one day I will get them done…when I am level 100 and it is a cake walk….

WoWScrnShot_011014_143533

I adore the way the tail moves on this mount, it is very hypnotic, and the way the light changes the colours, honestly it is just amazes me at how beautiful they made them!!  I could go one…but I would just end up listing everything…Some special mentions have to go to the Talbuks…they are a very nice ride!

Can’t wait to see what you all love!! (if you posted and are not listed here, please let me know so I can add you!)

Mog the World in 80 days competition!!!

I had a brilliant idea whilst trying to think of things for the shared topics on blog Azeroth, so in summation, we can blame Fimlys and Hydra for what is about to happen here at Azerothian Life.  Inspired by stupidity perhaps, however without further ado –  I have decided to hold a transmogging contest!!

Honestly I think it is a fantastic idea which can celebrate the many different cultures and countries we all spawn from!  With Australia day looming close, I felt it was a great day to get this event started!  You can read about it on this page!

The judges I have managed to wrangle together (no actual wrangling occurred…we were out of jelly and not near any mud :p ) are none other than the brilliant, gorgeous, talented and very likeable trio of Navimie, Cymre and Kamalia!!  Woot Woot!

The event will run over 12 weeks and as it is not starting until the 26th January 2014 you have plenty of time to familiarise yourself with the details, start working on outfits and contact us for any questions you may have.

It will be a tight schedule of an outfit a week, but as most people are transmogging genii, I don’t think you will struggle at all!!  I will be sending out updates and confirmations on twitter, so follow me @dragonray to be kept in the loop.

Please spread the word, we are currently in the process of sourcing prizes so we will keep you up to date. Donations of prizes for winners are also welcome and would be very warmly received!

BA Shared Topic – Oaths

Shared Topic this week from Matty:

What vows would your character say, intend, or break, and to what allegiance? Would it be to class/race/specialization, deity, or ruler? This is quite a challenging Blog Azeroth topic, however, I know you are all up to it because you are amazing writers.

I found this one a hard one…many of my readers would know, I am not a very good writer, in fact I would go so far as to say I suck!!  Thinking about oaths and actually coming up with how to formulate those ideas into words was a struggle, however I believe I have come up with something that is only mildly crap :p

The thing you have to understand with my mindset about my toons is I don’t really care about the faction that are in.  If they are alliance, they hate horde or whatever the larger evil is (death wing anyone), and same with my horde toons, they typically hate the alliance.  The issue I have found is that my toons have been back and forth so many times in their life, I tend to just see them as their class and leave it at that.  I wrote some oaths trying to express how my main characters see their life and any oaths they may have taken to continue on their chosen path (horde or alliance 🙂  – yes I know a whole bunch of friends just screamed that I have to choose a side!!!)

My warrior has taken the following oath:
I pledge my life for yours to protect you from all danger and spill the blood of our enemies, before a drop of yours is shed. I shall honour our earth, I shall cleanse in the water, I shall breath in the air, I shall feast with our clan by the fire.  Always must I believe my shield is as important as my heart, and should one break the other will follow.  I am more than my weapon, and my scars will ever be a reminder of the trials we have suffered and the battles we have won.

My Paladin took:
The light shall absolve me; in the light, I shall triumph. Any pain shall be healed, any fear will be quelled. Within the light we will become one, our triple aspect becoming greater than any evil our world can attempt to destroy me with. Protection, healing and killing shall be my future with the understanding I must remember to always protect those who cannot protect themselves. This is my oath until the light leaves my body for the last time.

My Mage:
We bring the storms and we can bring the calm. We are the army that lights up the night sky.  Together we are stronger than man, demon or god.  The fire burns within us, seeking destruction; ice stills our mind, seeking the calm and the arcane flows through our veins; bursting with knowledge.  Seek the wisdom to defeat our enemies, create the balance in your mind and allow the fire in your soul to be shared with your allies.

and finally my Druid:
I am bound to the moon, as the earth is bound by the sun. I feel the turning of the seasons as one feels the rage in battle, all my forms are given to the service of the old gods. I shall nourish the earth as she nourishes me and I will fight our enemies without reservation if they cause damage to the land and the spirits which inhabit it. I fight for those who do not understand the ways of the spirit, so that one day the fight will no longer be needed.

I can’t wait to see more oaths!

Where have I gone?

Into a cave somewhere in the swamp of sorrows to hide from people and the world in general.

Since I last posted my world has been turned upside down again, and so I have basically not been able to get online – nor have I even had the inclination in all honesty.

This is a very long post but I wanted it here as a reminder of my WoW life.  Feel free to have a gander.

Shared Topic: Lifechanging?

This week’s Blog Azeroth Shared Topic is suggested by Effraeti.

Very simply:

How has WoW changed your life?

Oh, you wonderful woman for suggesting such a topic, this could be a horrifically waffly post, which I love doing 🙂  There may even be pictures involved if I can find them 🙂

I have been trying to write a post for the last 3 days about how wow has changed my life and I am really struggling to put into words the changes. How can I describe the sense of achievement I get when we kill bosses, the feeling I am contributing to something with others, how do I explain to you the friendships I have built and am building every day with new people who are fun and interesting and worthwhile?

Is it even possible to put into words the comfort I get from throwing fireballs with my bare hands at huge ugly mobs when I am having a bad day, or the overwhelming pride when I kill someone in PVP before they kill me and recognise that I have actually improved my skills, or the enjoyment I get from reading and improving my character in game.

Wow has changed me in so many ways, and I don’t want to sound like a primary school teacher here, but it has taught me a lot about team work, co-operation, dealing with difficult personalities, enjoying my ability to find information, making friends – the list is endless.  I just wish it could change my temper, although it seems to be one of the few things that sets my temper off, well not the game but ignorant people 😀

I am still learning things every day and WoW is still changing my life, not just through the game but through the community.  Blogging, twitter, jogging etc have all shown me that there is a huge world out there of people to meet and things to do.  I hope WoW never stops changing my life because I could not honestly imagine waking up one day and finding it not there anymore.

Here are links to some of the other bloggers post, make sure you bring tissues – you may need it for a couple of them!

Shared Topic: Custom Fit Professions

Effraeti brings us a colourful topic on Blog Azeroth this week :

Professions are fun for some and a necessary evil for others.

Some of us have farming professions. Some of us have crafting professions. Some of us have a little bit of everything! Professions are leveled because they fit our style of play, help us in raiding, allow us to outfit our alts, and make us money.

What professions do you have on your main? Do his/her professions fit their personality? Why did you choose them? If you chose professions based on your character and not on gaming needs, would that change some of their professions they use?

(This can include the secondary professions of archaeology, fishing, cooking, and first aid too!)

Such a long and detailed post this is going to be, as you know, I never do anything by halves 🙂 Here is my story…

Waiting to find out if I am in and which tabard I am getting.

Sha,tar!! I am IN – it is on girls and boys!

**edited to add**

Maybe one of my professional transmoggers can help me out here, what if you don’t have the item…for example..I don’t have a chopper…so do i just create my set without being near a bike and then the judges will be comparing it with an image? Will that disadvantage me not being near the item in question?

Oh god…this is stressful already and I don’t even know if I am in yet 🙂
