Old Friends, Frugal and Fickle

Posted in General WoW, WoW Classic on December 4, 2019 by tomeoftheancient

Although I tell myself I set my home in Classic to Theramore because of convenience, I’m pretty sure that’s not the main reason. Classic is about the only place in life that I can erase the bad times and go back to the good. I like hanging out with Jaina and Pained. Theramore is intact, nothing bad has happened there and Jaina has not changed. It’s a happier time for both of us I think.

I was intent on being able to buy a mount the minute I reached level 40. I was so frugal a level 20 Murloc could kill my level 35 self because I didn’t buy many spells. I see HOWEVER that Kitwynn spent what at the time was a lot on her pet cat. Apparently that was more important than staying alive to her.

In spite of reckless purchases we finally made it, whew. What a relief. I don’t remember not being able to ride bothering me but back then because I didn’t know what I was missing, this time I did. So happy to have a mount to ride back and forth in Booty Bay.

I pre-purchased Shadowlands and that came with a boost. Okay, I don’t know if anyone else is like this but the decision on who got it was so hard. I wanted to boost my Dark Iron Warlock just because. I felt guilty even thinking about it. I glanced around furtively as though Cat and the others knew what I was thinking. It was just wrong.

I decided it should go to either Sasche my main Horde character or Zorakar the Hunter my very first character back in 2006. My husband doesn’t play games, I’m not sure why I asked him what I should do. I really didn’t think he’d take it seriously. He looked at me like I was bonkers to even suggest there was a contest. The Hunter it must be, so there she is.

I feel kind of bad, I told Cat I’d be right back when Classic got here and nope, didn’t do it. And now I’ve been distracted by trying to figure out Huntering as I have no idea how anymore. I’ve just been running from new shiny to new shiny. Sorry Cat. We’ll go mount hunting soon, I promise. I just need to get Zor a bow and then Kitwynn needs a …

Waiting for Classic

Posted in General WoW, WoW Classic on August 23, 2019 by tomeoftheancient

Cat’s been doing her version of fun stuff while we wait for Classic. She was so excited to get this Voidwiggler in Arathi Highlands. She couldn’t wait to tell her Warlock friends, well, at least Sasche, that she could now have two Voids out!

I didn’t really have any names I wanted to save as my first character is still here although semi-retired and living at the moment in Highmountain because she likes it there and she still has her name, Zorakar. She has that name because I couldn’t get the one I wanted back in 2006. I wanted the name Zhora from the original Bladerunner movie but no luck.

Many, many characters got the boot along the way. My first Druid did because if I remember correctly you didn’t get cat form until level 30. I got tired of dying. Part of the problem may have been I bought and wore white quality vendor armor. Thankfully my son-in-law insisted I check out the auction house and what a difference that made.

Thinking about why I’m anxiously awaiting Classic I realized it’s pretty much sight-seeing. I can’t wait to go back to the places Cataclysm disrupted. I know some people didn’t like Darkshore but I did. It is so, so sad to go there now. In Classic I can’t wait to go back. Including Thousand Needles, Silithus, Wetlands … yep lots of traveling to do.

I created an Alliance Druid and a Warlock on Myzrael and an Undead Warrior on Mankrik. I not sure what the Warrior is about cause I can’t Warrior. I’m not sure at this point if they’ll see action as both servers are showing as high and full. Can’t figure that out as you can’t login. Maybe we all are just starring at our characters counting down the moments.

I can’t believe it, less than a week until we see pointy head squirrels once again! Strange what you miss and oh! Tanaris and Hillsbrad Foothills and and …
