Death and Plushies

17

Guess who stopped by to wish me happy birthday? It was none other than Navimie with the kids to drop off a present. When I saw the bag, I knew it was another plushie but since I already own the wind rider and gryphon, I wasn’t sure which one it could be.Chen Plushie

A Lil’ Chen Panderen Plush. He sure is cute but that wasn’t all. Navi told me there was something else in the bag.

Oh, a card… and something that fell on the floor.

OMG, a scratch code and it wasn’t a TCG loot card.

What? What?

This happened to be one of the exclusive items from a previous Blizzcon (which also happened to be on my Ultimate Wish List. At first I thought it was two pets but even so, one is still an excellent gift. In this case, Deathy was awarded to those attending the 2010 convention.

Blizzcon 2010 Loot Card

I was hoping to log on before the servers went down so I could powerlevel the pet but at least I could redeem to code in the meantime.

Thx again Navi :D

Liebster III

I woke up to find I had been nominated for the third time by Jojo of Admiring Azeroth. The first was by Reihyou and then… (afraid I can’t remember at this moment but it was someone who didn’t list any questions and was on blogger).

So here we go again:

1. Do you still play your first character? If not, why not and if you do, how much? Are they your main or just an alt…

No, I don’t. It was a human paladin (which I still have) but has remained level 23 or so since early vanilla.

2. What’s your opinion of the more monotonous side of WoW? Things like fishing, archaeology, rep grinds etc.

I usually do those for the novelty items like the Scepter of Azj’Aqir, then it’s the rep and achievements which keep me going until I’ve completed everything.

3. Which of the in-game races does the real life you best resemble? (I’m a Dwarf or Pandaren).

Definitely a Blood Elf although I’m slightly more shapely than the current model and my ears aren’t quite as pointy.

4. What other games do you play?

Hearthstone (and I dabble in D3 from time to time).

5. Are you a gold-maker in-game?

Not a serious one but I have been trying to generate gold for any outstanding pets I don’t have or the odd BMAH purchase.

6. Would you class yourself as a typical gamer?

I always thought of a gamer as one who plays lots of different types of games. I don’t, but I guess I am even though I only like to play WoW and Hearthstone.

7. I play on a laptop which is slowly dying from all the WoW-time. What do you play on?

I have my main computer which is what I do the majority of stuff on but I also like to use the laptop (in the evenings) when I can relax with some of the more casual stuff.

8. What’s the best thing that’s happened to you as a result of blogging?

I just love sharing my experiences with others in the WoW community whether it’s my own personal accomplishments or material I hope will help others. On the other hand, I often think sharing so much of myself on the blog limits a lot of interaction that I might otherwise have in-game (also shown by the few comments I receive) because people think they know everything there is to know about me – this isn’t necessarily the case. Remember, I love to read your comments.

9. If all the WoW servers were merged, so EU and US could play together etc, would that affect the game for you? What would you do in celebration? Or could you not give two beeps.

Not at all, unless they didn’t speak english perhaps. I’d much rather be able to do some fun activities like raid with cross-faction friends though. That would mean I could always bring my main for that one transmog item I’ve been trying to get, achievement or just help with heals or DPS.

10. We all have at-least one fun fact about us, what’s yours?

Ooh fun fact? Hmm, let me think about that one..

I used to be in the highest gymnastics class at school.

11. If you could add a new profession to WoW what would it be? Primary or Secondary?

I’d love to have another primary profession, maybe a plastic surgeon so I could customise my character more, LOL.

Well there we go. For those who haven’t participated yet, feel free to take this as an auto-nomination if you’d like to join in. Just don’t forget to add your 11 random facts about yourself and leave a message below so we can see what you’ve written.
