Honest Scrap

Posted in Blog Azeroth, Stuff on April 1, 2009 by Eglador


Well, there goes another meme, and me got tagged for it by Engy over at Zap!.
honest_scrap1
I still don’t know if he even looked at my blog when he asked in BA chat if there was anyone that didn’t get tagged yet, and I said “me”… I should stop volunteering, by the way 😀
But still, I want to thank anyone that reads me, and blahblahblah *insert random speech here*

“This award is bestowed upon a fellow blogger whose blog content or design is, in the giver’s opinion, brilliant.”

Well, as I said above, I don’t really know how I got the honor to get this :D. But still, for me to accept this award, I have to fulfill some points:

  1. When accepting this auspicious award, you must write a post bragging about it, including the name of the misguided soul who thinks you deserve such acclaim, and link back to the said person so everyone knows she/he is real.
  2. Choose a minimum of seven (7) blogs that you find brilliant in content or design. Or improvise by including bloggers who have no idea who you are because you don’t have seven friends. Show the seven random victims’ names and links and leave a harassing comment informing them that they were prized with Honest Weblog. Well, there’s no prize, but they can keep the nifty icon.
  3. List at least ten (10) honest things about yourself. Then pass it on!

So, I already fulfilled point 1, and I will tag more than seven people in the end, so I might as well go on with the honest stuff, which I don’t think will be that easy… But I can always steal ideas from other bloggers, so it’s all right! 😀

  • I started playing WoW as one of those lesser classes, in fact my first toon that hit 60 (before I even started playing an alt) was my hunter (she’s on her way to tame a Spirit Beast at the moment).
  • Like Trustyn, who tagged me, I’m left-handed, but I still use mouse and keyboard the way most right-handed people do.
  • I love my druid, period!
  • I will get dual-specs asap when 3.1 hits, but I still don’t know which two specs to use with my druid, because I love them all.
  • Like Stop I play on a RP server and my last time participating in any kind of RP event was about 2 years ago…
  • It’s getting harder to find more points already…
  • I’m a fourth-grade computer science student.
  • I never ever drink or have drunk alcohol (besides for medical purpose) in my entire life.
  • I’m from Germany, if you didn’t know 😀
  • I’m finally finished with these 10 posts, which is quite a relief.

Now comes the fun part: tagging at least 7 other bloggers for this stuff. I thought a bit about it and came to the conclusion, that I will just tag all the EU druid bloggers that I have in my blogroll (besides the ones that already got tagged) and the two bloggers, that volunteered in BA chat.
First the volunteers:

Sylly, from Rolling Hots, because (s)he? never got tagged before.
Noobie, from The Incredible Noobiewan because he… well… nearly asked for it.

Now for the real tags, and I don’t even know if those people read me, in no particular order:

BoomMummy and Boomdaddy of Wrath of the Boomkin because they write awesome and funny stuff (especially jokes about mages)
Riverwish, of A trees tale because I like pictures
Alyviel, of Bitter Roots, although not playing on EU servers, still comes from the EU
Rhil, of dark spot in the corner, because I like the Kukren on his blog
Ayeba, of Healer Envy, because the posts are a great read and quite insightful
Gwyn and Cablin of moonfire.org because they are druids, and I likes druids
Kaso, of Naturalist, just because I can tag him 😀
Niniel, of Swiftmend, because I like the way she writes about endgame raiding

and finally, not from the EU, Forks, of Omen of Clarity, so that he may again have a post to write.

Just linking back, instead of trying to write a real post.

Me got tagged!

Posted in Blog Azeroth, Stuff, Uncategorized on February 20, 2009 by Eglador

As some/all of you might now, there’s a whole bunch of tagging going round in the WoW blogging community. The task is to post your sixth screenshot from your sixth subfolder in your screenshot directory, and I got tagged by Stop and Byaghro to do this, mainly because I said in BA chat that I had not been tagged… I should shut up when such stuff gets up, otherwise I will have to do much more like this in the future.

So, to start I must say that I do not have subfolders. So I’ll randomly pick all my two folders where there actually ARE screenshots of WoW. The first one is a bit older, dating back to the days pre-BC, should be about 6 months prior to the addon-release, where I was running a bit of Alterac Valley on my warrior alt, who back then was my main raiding toon.

As you can see, I wasn’t that bad.

Now for my actual screenshot folder.
It’s sorted alphabetically, which means that the pictures from January of this year are first, so I might be posting more than just one, sorting in different ways for choosing.

This one already got posted in this blog to show that mammoths are, in fact, immune to damage.

The sixth from the back, showing me and a nice orc huntress two-manning all those Vrykul arena quests (well, we did need help for the last one).

So now for the sixth one recorded in my folder:

Well, not much to say for this one… and that’s it! Hope you have enjoyed these screens!

Now for me tagging people…
Ruffin over at Confessions of a Part-time Panzerkin
Forks over at Omen of Clarity
Pookies over at Pookies is not a bear
C. Jones (too lazy to look up the toon’s name) over at Spam Moonfare!
Kalon over at Think Tank
Llanion over at Mooonfire
and Yashima over at Yashima Plays

mammoths: now with falling immunity

Posted in Blog Azeroth, Stuff on January 21, 2009 by Eglador

Thanks again to Stop for the post title.

After it came up in BA chat today, I tested if my mammoth would still help me survive a fall, and as it seems, it does so even better than before!
Check for proof: Video

Edit: As it seems, the mobs kinda evadebug when I’m in aggro range of them, they only attack if I get into melee range:
Another edit: It seems as if that was just those mobs, the other ones in the area attacked me regularly.

BA shared topic: If I could have a class flying mount

Posted in Blog Azeroth, Stuff on August 13, 2008 by Eglador

This week, the Blog Azeroth shared topic is “If I could have a class flying mount it would be…” and here are my thoughts:
I thought about it, having a druid with its own veeery nice swift flight form, it should be special. Very special. And cool. And then a memory caught me.
There was once, before the questline for the swift flight form was implemented, a video on WCM displaying just what every druid would want, and I want to present it here as my wish for the druid class flying mount (maybe for another AddOn): the
Epic Flight Form! by Dementia Myndflame.

On a completely unrelated note, we downed Anetheron in our second try yesterday and got one or two shots at Kaz’rogal, the better one wiping at 17%, which I am quite fond of (me being a tree at that time, because our paladin class officer was having a nap on his sofa and wasn’t awoke when we started so I had to respec).
