Important message.

I’m sick and tired of this blog, and I felt like I would be more motivated to write if I started fresh on a different blog. The name on this one is also killing me, since I changed name when I transferred my character, and well.. I’m not blogging about WoW only anymore. So change, here I come!

Be sure to visit my new blog:

I hope to see you there :)

Radio silence

Woops. I’ve been neglecting my blog since I’ve been busy with a lot of things lately. School started on Wednesday, and we’re kicking it off with some kind of exam, so I’m crazy busy trying to prepare for it. The subject is interior design, and we’re given very few details, which makes it really difficult to know how to prepare.

My boyfriend moved here about a week ago, and we had to fix a lot of things in order for him to be allowed to work etc. So we’ve been running around to every office that has to do with such. Blergh. I don’t like office-people.

Last, but not least… I’m lacking energy, since I’ve been sleeping for two weeks straight :p Hopefully I’ll get better at making time for everything as I get used to living again x)

Making excuses…

I’m assuming you’re just as sidetracked by christmas and new years, and well.. If you add slacker (and trying my best to avoid any contact with my family = sleeping) you can kinda see where I’m at right now. I don’t care about anything other than sleeping, eating, my kitten and my boyfriend. I’m such a slackerrr :3

Anywho.. I was planning on writing about my thoughts regarding Dragon Soul, the new raid in WoW, but then I realized that there’s no point for me to try to explain anything as I do not care that much for PvE. I guess I liked it, but PvP is way funnier. Too bad it’s really hard to find people that are skilled enough, and willing to stick in a guild even though it’s still in startup phase. I think we’ve all been slacking a bit when it comes to the guild, and now there’s lack of motivation and time out running us down. I had no idea that getting a guild up and running would be this, well.. not difficult, but challenging.

I’ll stop making excuses now and get my ass onto WoW ;)

This is an announcement. (real life)

Talking about my personal life is not something this blog was meant to ever be about, but somehow I changed that. I figured it would be too much pressure to keep two blogs up when I barely can keep this one up, so I decided to mash it up.

Today, I have an announcement to make. Our household has increased by one, you see… My boyfriend, from Sweden, has moved here, to get rid of the distance and to find a job. Since I’m still in school it was the obvious choice that I get to finish school before moving anywhere. I am overly excited and happy, I can finally get to see my boyfriend every day.

This is a big step for any relationship, and a huge one at that. I mean, we lived in different countries. Our relationship took two steps at once, since I got myself a kitten a few months ago. So not only do we live together, we also share a cat. You might find it crazy, and I’ve had people telling me it won’t work, but being apart for a year is more than enough.

Now the only thing missing is the ring on my finger, but I guess I shouldn’t stress about that.

Christmas celebration / Hurricane Dagmar

Finding something to blog about during any holiday should be easy, but I’m not the kind of person who enjoys celebrations with my family, so I try to avoid it. I did celebrate with my family this year, and it was a disaster. I did, however, get a few nice presents, such as new sheets that I picked out myself, decorative pillows for my new room, a picture of my uncle’s little angel and a bottle of wine.¬†What I hate the most about the end of December, must be the fact that there are two celebrations squeezed in with only 7 days between each other. I’m already gaining weight, goddamnit. Nee, I don’t really care about my weight, I just don’t like new year’s eve. Now that I think about it, until I have my own traditions I don’t think I’ll like anything other than my birthday.

Last night we were hit by a storm/hurricane, the power went out and we were sitting here in the dark listening to sounds that would remind anyone of a huge demon that just washed over everything and tried to destroy as much as possible. We lost about 4 trees to the storm, luckily they didn’t break anything when they fell. We were sitting with flashlights and burning candles telling each other scary stories because we were so bored without electricity – and internet.

First thing I did when I woke up this morning was to go outside and take pictures of the fallen trees.

Classes I’ve tried to level

Why I ended up leveling a Paladin as my first character on my own account has a lot to do with the people who had influence on me back then. I had already tried priest (I borrowed a friend’s account to try WoW before buying it myself), but it was boring and I had no idea how to play it. So I read up on a few things, and was pushed in the direction of paladin, as it seemed like the best “beginner”-class. By saying that I do not mean that you’re stuck being a beginner for as long as you play paladin, ’cause there’s so much potential in the class, that you need to be skilled to play it properly.

I’ve been playing paladin since I started playing WoW, and there has been a million times when I’ve wanted to just kill it and start a new class – and so I have decided to try to level up a new character. Somehow I seem to fail every single time, I just can’t sit down and level all the way to 85 without thinking I’ll die of boredom.

So which classes have I tried leveling? Which level did they end up being stuck at?

To be honest, I have tried to level all the classes available, except shaman.

Paladin, reached level 85 – thanks to a lot of help from friend (including RaF/boost). I love playing paladin because I feel like there’s so many opportunities.

Rouge, reached level 72 – The first character I leveled all by myself. I liked being able to lurk in the shadows, but the slow dungeons queues and being forced to quest knocked me off balance.

Druid, reached level 70/Sylvanas and 42/Ravencrest – The druid at Ravencrest is supposed to be RaFing with a friend of mine, but she’s so much of a slacker that we’re stuck at 42. I love playing druid, I actually like tanking as druid more than anything else.

Death Knight, reached level 66 – Not really an achievement, it got stuck because I was too afraid of tanking new dungeons alone. I know I’m a retard.

Priest, reached level 54 (still leveling) – For some reason priest is really fun right now, the irony is that I promised I’d never play priest, ever!

Hunter, reached level 50 – It’s so old I can’t even remember her name.

Warlock, reached level 20 – I liked playing warlock, but once again me not being able to commit to leveling made me fail.

Warrior, reached level 16 – I was supposed to tank with this one, but tanking as a lvl 16 warrior was far from entertaining or funny. So I have up on her, really sad though, since I really loved her name.

Mage, reached level 12 – Not at all the class for me, I figured that much out.

What the… You’re raiding now?

Yesterday after writing about the features Blizzard launched for WoW when they released the last patch my boyfriend convinced me it would be a great idea to try out the new features. I haven’t tried transmogrify yet, as well.. I’ll be replacing my gear soon, and also I don’t have the whole set that I want to transmogrify to – and I do not want my character to run around looking like a badly decorated christmas tree. So Dennis and I queued up for Dragon Soul using raid finder. I must admit I was a bit nervous, mostly because healing in PvE is completely different from healing in PvP. Being in full PvP-gear didn’t really make it any better, but we did kill all the bosses and I got myself some shoulders (they actually look a bit awesome). I must admit, though, it was indeed very easy, but if a feature like raid finder is going to work it has to be easier as there’s always the average player wanting to ruin the fun for everyone. I have yet to experience the difference between raid finder and the actual normal/heroic-mode, but I think it’s safe to say that I will not be standing in anyone’s way for a clean kill (as I do not intend to actually investigate the differences).

Cool stuff that came this patch – that I still haven’t tried.

Transmogrify: I guess the reason I haven’t tried it yet, is because I don’t see the point when I’m going to replace pretty much all the gear I’m wearing right now. And also I’ve had a lot of problems deciding how I want to look. I was thinking about the purple judgement set, but then I realized that the actual judgement set is waay more paladin. I was also considering the lightbringer set for a really long time, and I’m not sure I’m done deciding if it’s judgement or lightbringer I want to settle for.

Raid finder: I hate queueing for PvE-stuff alone. I need at least one familiar face when doing that, mostly because I’ve had some bad experience queueing alone in the past. When you’re alone it’s so much easier to be the one getting attacked for random things that wasn’t your fault in the first place¬†(I’m a healer, so I know this like the back of my hand). Also raiding overall just seems scary to me, and therefore I’m not ever going to do it alone. Even the Baradin Hold is not something I’m willing to do by myself, I guess the haters really got to me at some point. PvE is also not one of my strongest sides, as there’s a lot of tacts involved, and I prefer the challenge another player is able to throw at me.

Feel free to enlighten me with your own experience with these new features in the comment section below.

Dear god.

I’m not at all religious, and I do not celebrate christmas because of Jesus being born and what not. I’m celebrating christmas because of the presents, not the ones I have to give – but the ones I get. But right now I’m almost praying to some kind of god that I’ll find it within my heart to start blogging again. It is something I’ve loved doing for way too long, and it feels very wrong throwing in the towel right now.

That being said.. There’s not a lot of things going on in my life right now. I can sleep however long I want to tomorrow, because today was the last day of school – yay! Other than that.. I still play WoW, but not as much/seriously as I did before. Which sucks, since I really do enjoy the game. I’m not working at the moment, as I’m too busy feeling sorry for myself. So what am I supposed to write about? I know this blog was supposed to be about gaming, mostly, and my perspective of things as a female gamer, but the borders has been crossed, and there’s no way back. I’m not really up for “relaunching” a new blog, and start over. So I guess for the time being you’ll have to deal with my every-day-shit as well :) Oh, and I do feel for you.

AKG by harman, in-ear headphones.

Say hello to my new in-ear headphones! They are a little bit too green for my taste, but the sound quality is way better than with the Apple ones. Then again it’s no secret that when you buy something from Apple you are paying a lot for it being Apple.

I haven’t really tried them out yet, but I think it’ll be an improvement compared to the Apple ones. Or well.. I guess I know it is.
