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.

LF new friends

 

Hello! Since I’m not really that keen on playing now days it’s really difficult to actually keep this blog going! It was so much easier when I was in a guild that was active and serious. Also I’m having a hard time making new friends on my new sever, which kinda sucks the fun out of the game. I guess that is what I miss the most about Sylvanas,

knowing so many of the people playing there, because I had been there ever since I started. I guess one can compare it to moving to a bigger city, you know no one..And as long as you’re not going to work (aka doing BGs/RBGs and/or dungeons) you’re not gonna make any new friends.

It’s really weird for me though, because I’ve never had any trouble making friends. I find the people at Ravencrest a lot nicer than everyone at Sylvanas. If you asked for help in trade you were likely to get trolled or spammed with sarcastic replies. Please be better than Sylvanas!

Listen up girls, you want to know this!

Blogging about gaming, sounds lame, boring and like such a waste of time to most people. I was actually surprised to see how many people that’s actually doing it! And I think we somehow, even though we might not be the best at commenting each other, make a cute little community. You know I’ve been posting pieces of a story that Hazeen is writing, and as you probably know he’s also a gamer/blogger. We “met” because of my guild master telling me about his blog, and also telling him about my blog – I guess the fun part is that we clicked and are really good friends. Anyway this is all leading up to what I had planned to write about.

The Social Aspect of Gaming.

You, me and all the other gamers out there understand what I mean just from reading those five words, but there’s unfortunately too many people (mostly girls) out there who can’t possibly ever understand the social aspect of it all. Today I was talking to one of my new classmates, she’s a few years older than me, and she’s never had any experience with gaming. She only knew the “scary” stories about players that have given in to the addiction games like WoW may cause. And therefore her image of gaming is twisted completely. We started talking about gaming because a friend of mine (he’s also a guildie) came up to us and started talking about WoW. We discussed the social aspect of gaming, and her image of it all seemed a bit changed.

Because girls, not everyone goes into this insane addiction where they ditch work or school. There’s serious and hardcore gamers that put a lot of time and effort into their game, but there’s also casual players that does not put the same amount of time or effort into the game – I’m not saying casual players aren’t committed though, ’cause they can be.

Basically the social aspect is how you’re able to make friends online and being able to feel like you’re hanging out, even though you’re in reality not really actually hanging out. You might think that those friends aren’t as real as “real life friends”, but they are! If not even more real. During one week I spend more time with my guild than with my classmates, so it’s only natural that I get close with some of them. You talk about the game you’re playing, and along with that you’ll eventually see that you have more in common with a few people and like that.. You’ve got an online friend. Just as real as any other friend.

In my experience my online friends has been there for me more often than my real life friends. It’s also easier to seek comfort from someone that’s outside of your own life, someone who’s never going to meet your mom if she’s the problem you’re having at the time.

Wow.. This turned out to be one fucking wall of text, but there you have it! I don’t really know how to explain it any further. If you’re curious then go ahead and try it with a friend, maybe you’ll like it!

Games I played as a kid

Up until like 5 seconds ago I honestly believed that my career as a gamer started when I started my first WoW character, but after remembering a few things from my childhood I realized that it’s been in me all along. Thinking back I can describe several games that I do not know the names of. It all started with a discussion with my boyfriend about this game my uncle used to play when I was a kid, there was this black map, and you had to discover it all for it to become colored. And you build villages and stuff, trying to fight intruders. My boyfriend googled some screenshots of Warcraft 2, and I quickly recognized it! So there you have it, guys.. I’ve played Warcraft 2 (on my uncle’s lap, with his explaining my every move).

But there was more than that, the all time classics Zelda, Super Mario, Donkey Kong, Pokemon and Rayman! I’m not really sure I’d say Rayman is one of the all time classics, but since I grew up playing it, it counts. Gee.. I loved that game! My cousins were the ones who introduced me to Rayman, but later on I got Rayman M (Multiplayer/Arena) for my PS2 (my mom got me one for christmas when they came out). I really don’t feel like I need to say a word about Zelda, Super Mario or Donkey Kong. If you haven’t played Zelda or Super Mario you’ve clearly missed out on something, oh the fun!

Ah.. I remember my gameboy color, it was always with me, no matter where I was going. I remember being in Bulgaria back in 2002, and I bought a game for my gameboy from this really “seems legit”-kind of guy, it was 102 Dalmatians Puppies to rescue, and it actually worked! I lost it, so I never got to clear the last level. And then there’s Pokemon.. I played it non stop! And then I got to the tournament-thingy, and I got stuck at this one “boss”. I lost my save when a friend borrowed my gameboy and decided to make a new game and overwrite my save – I got a little bit upset about that. The nerdrage has been in me for years.

And then there was a few random games, such as Yoshi’s Island and The Itchy and Scratchy Game . Oo.. And a game I can’t remember the name of… Something do to with cars racing in space, I think.. The tracks were totally off the hook! If you know the name please tell me! That’s all I can remember.. But I’m guessing there’s more :p
