RE: Confessions of a Gender Bender

The following is in response to : Altoholics Anonymous' post "The Confessions of a Gender Bender"

I think the gender thing is hilarious in WoW.  "What's My Main Again?"'s characters are dominantly female.  His reasoning?  The guys are ugly. 

We had a discussion once about guild dynamic involving females (in RL) vs. females. When I started playing Wow 7 months ago, there was ONE female in his guild.  She had played w/ hubby and Kobeck in a previous guild, until they broke off and started our own family/friend guild.

Hunter FTW!

Having pretty much lost interest in doing dailies on Aurora, and not really interested in questing in Zul 'Drak on my DK, I decided to make a new alt.  I have a lvl 16 ret pally that I had been working on, but got tired of melee DPS.  I have a lvl 24 Mage, but got tired of being so squishy and not having anyone to quest with to either tank with or heal me.

So.. I had created a hunter on Ravenholdt and was having a pretty good time with her, but I missed my friends on Durotan.  So I decided to take on a new alliance hunter on Durotan.  Her name is Kalandra.  I have been working on her pretty much constantly.  I have taken up maybe running the fishing dailies on Aurora just for a little cash, as I am stuck at 427 on my enchanting and don't really NEED any enchants to help lvl it to max.  And that mats are so expensive!  Most of the higher end enchants cost more to make than they sell for on the AH.  And my tailoring was great for when I was lvling because I could make my own gear.. and not to mention that I can make BAGS!

So, I created a hunter.  Kalandra is a night elf beast mastery hunter.  I chose BM because David said it is one of the fastest ways to lvl her.  I have been working on her maybe 3 weeks and she is lvl 28.  I probably could have her higher by now but I get bored just constant questing.  I have been working on primary and secondary professions for her, and her primaries are neck and neck for lvl.  And are both above the zones that I am currently questing in.  I chose Herbing and Alchemy as my two profs.  My alchemy is at the lvl that it requires herbs from lvl 30 zones.  And my herbing is high enough to obtain these herbs.

I almost always enjoy lvling my profs more than my actual character lvls.

Raid Schmaid

So, it's been awhile since my last post here.  Hubby was questioning me about WHY I don't post on my WoW blog, and didn't seem satisfied with the answer that I wrote in my blog about RL instead.

The point is, I kind of lost interest there for a while.  Aurora was maxed out lvl wise, but not so geared that I got invited to raids anymore with the introduction of the TOC 10 and 25 man raids.  The first or second run that we did I was invited in for 10 man.  Now, this was new to the entire group and everyone was just getting a feel for how the fight should go.  It started out ok, but then the kobolds or snobolds or painintheassbolds, or what ever form of bolds they are in that fight.

So...Had an interesting night the other night. Went with our little group (Me, Lanora, Cassiana, Marrus, and Kobeck) to run Heroic Trial of the Champion daily. So, we get in the instance and I'm looking at Kobeck and I'm like "Why are you naked?" Now, this is something that we had done a while ago after the release of 3.2 - ran through it naked just to see if we could. But, I figured I must have missed the memo.

Expanding My Horizons.

So... It's been a month since my last update, and a LOT has happened! I want to lay out the deets of my alts. Especially since I seem to be collecting them. I not only have added 2 new alts on Durotan since my last update, but 2 new alts on Ravenholdt as well. (More on that later)

The Roster:

Raid - I can do this???

Having only hit lvl 80 a few weeks ago, I mostly use Auroradawn for dailies. However, it seems to be occurring more often that I am finding myself raiding.

An Introduction To The Way I Roll, Yo!

Having only been a WoWhead for about 3 months now, my <3 belongs to my main: Auroradawn of Durotan.

Auroradawn is a human lvl 80 destruction warlock. My favorite spells on this toon are Immolate, Conflagarate, Chaos Bolt, and Incinerate. I also use rain of fire as my main AOE. My professions are tailoring which I am up to lvl 435, and enchanting that is hanging somewhere around 130 as I just started that profession a week ago when I hit lvl 80. We attempted Naxxramas 10-man a week ago and made it through the arachnid quarter and into that other place and called it after wiping on the four horsemen.

In addition to Auroradawn on the Durotan realm I have: Jesckara- lvl 61 Dranei Death Knight unholy spec; Aallina- lvl 35 Night Elf Druid resto spec; Ealiana- lvl 10 Gnome warlock; and my current favorite project Xalixian - Lvl 18 Dranei Mage frost spec. I am currently working on trying to lvl my mage, David just created a priest to lvl with me since I am *squishy*. I am lucky to have a husband who creates complentary characters to accompany my squishies. He created a Nelf druid for Auroradawn's first 30 lvls or so...then switched to a lvl 30ish warrior that he had to tank for me who then lvl'd to 80 with me.

The WoW Widow: An Introduction

I need to start this blog off by saying that World of Warcraft was almost the end of my marriage. But that was 2 years ago. My husband started playing WoW in February of 2007 - referred by one of his friends/ex-girlfriend. So immediately that was a strike against the game. Then the countless hours that he spent playing WoW instead of paying attention to me, well, that was strike two. If all you're interested in is Wow stuff...scroll down to the purple text. For my IRL WoW drama, read on...
