What is your absolute favourite profession in WoW? Why do you love it above all others and what is one feature you would add to the profession if you could?
Being a Blood Elf who likes her bling, you may think Jewelcrafting but this was a no-brainer for me since I’ve loved the thought of Archaeology ever since it was revealed as a new secondary profession. If you’ve followed my numerous adventures in search of the unfamiliar, I hope I’ve given some insight into some of the cooler aspects of the game.
After the Cataclysm, I was eager to uncover all the new pets and mounts the profession had to offer; so-much-so that I completed the Scepter of Azj’Aqir twice while searching for the Vial of the Sands recipe.
Fast forward to Mists and I was excited about the possibility of discovering all sorts of lost treasures and riches of Pandaria. I was so excited about getting my Relic Hunter title ASAP, I wasn’t aware it had become the topic of discussion until I had a random whisper one afternoon. I would love to know if I were the first on the server as it’s an activity that’s been close to my heart for a long time now. I even had a few people ask me for locations and such after noticing my title and staff.
Now with the ability to display our artifacts in the Seat of Knowledge and with the introduction of our own homes on the farm (which is probably the closest thing we’ll have to player housing) makes me wish we had the ability to display or store our other knick-knacks in either location. Can you imagine being able to collect all the novelty items in the game and then store them for safe keeping? Kind of like Void Storage but not charging for the service. Think about it? You’d be able to pick them up and have a play or carry them around whenever you please. Talk about a space-saver. To illustrate, just look at the list of novelty items I’ve accumulated to date.
So tell me, what’s your favourite profession and why?

Day 5: What pet do you want more than any other pet? What would you do to get it?
When Tyrael’s Charger was introduced as one of the perks for the Annual Pass last year, I wasn’t sold on the wings but when I started playing Diablo III, the cutscenes really put it all in perspective and I saw how awesome they really are. Then playing through Act I, Coolidge didn’t tell me who our companion was (actually, I think I told him not to spoil it) but it wasn’t before too long that I had guessed Tyrael.
I didn’t know much of the story, short of the trailer and my brief experience of playing Diablo II but it was hard not to fall in love with the Archangels – particularly when you experience Tyrael’s sacrifice.
Being a fan of Diablo, Coolidge selected Imperius’ armour for his chibi and I must say that it turned out great.
So in light of all that, the pet that I covet most is Tyrael’s Hilt which was given out to those attending the 2008 Worldwide Invitational in Paris. But the question is, what would I be willing to do to get one?
Well, short of entering two recent contests at WoWHead and Warcraft Pets, I’m not sure what I’d be willing to pay for one except that I’ll be keeping a sharp eye on any future contests. Maybe my luck will change one of these days. I can only hope.
Special thx to Noxychu for the awesome avatar.

Day 4: What was the most epic pet battle/capture you ever had?
There are a few that stick out but not for the excitement value that others have written about, like capturing a rare spawn. On the beta, the Twilight Fiendling had such an annoying ability, capturing one proved difficult. They weren’t that rare to find but there was a lot of angst keeping them alive for the entire battle.
I can’t tell you how many failed attempts I had on this but it was enough.
Back then, the Fiendlings had an ability to clone itself (splitting it’s health in half) so essentially it would hit you twice each turn and then often die before you could trap it. How fair is that? So I was happy to see when it came to capturing one on live, the ability was gone.
Looking through my beta folder, I was excited to find this little nugget.
Speaking of other abilities which were tweaked, the Flayer Hatchling’s reflection ability worked a little differently too. The ability would reflect ANY ability including burrowing and heals so was really OP at the time. I recall doing a battle in the Vale, fairly close to Aki where I reflected the burrowing ability of the enemy pet. This caused my pet to remain underground for the rest of the match. This also happened on the take-off ability which caused you to fly up high, blocking an attack so in fact, my flayer was in mid-air for the rest of the entire match.
The most recent ‘epic’ battle that comes to mind is the tamer battle I had a while ago. Although that was more determination to keep going in the hopes of winning, rather than forfeiting and trying again with a different lineup.
Ah, the memories.
