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?
A few weeks ago, I noticed logging onto some characters seemed to be more irksome than others, it dawned on me that there were a few who never, ever seemed to be a chore to play. My question is, (and yes, you need to have more than one character over level 1) which of your characters do you always look forward to “seeing?” But the real question is why? Perhaps think of this from a role playing perspective, that this character has a personality, play style and demeanor that inevitably just works. I’d love to meet them!
It’s no question that Cymre is my pride and joy in the game. She was gathering achievements even before they were popular in a Guild who didn’t really focus on them back then. It was something that I took a lot of pride in doing, while working on my own personal milestones. I never bragged about my achievements but it was something that made me smile knowing that I could put so much effort into something and see it showcased in a journal.
Cymre loves to explore whether it’s a new continent, area or documenting interesting places in WoW. She’s also a completionist opting to collect all the recipes and designs for her professions. An avid pet collector, she gathered all the bought pets available in-game (which started back on my original hunter) so when they became account-wide, she ended up with a lot of duplicates.
For those aware of her transmog and costumes designs, it’s no wonder she has a lot of bag issues with the amount of costume changes she goes through or the odd item that’s been removed from the game – especially in the last few expansions, she’s accumulated quite a number of them.
My hunter will always hold a special place in my heart as she was my very first 60 and the only character I really played until BC came out. I still love collecting those rare pets though – which is reflected in my full stable of unique companions.
All of my other alts have proven skilled at various professions so that I’m as self-sufficient as possible. This goes back to the days when I was on a US server and often the only one on in the Guild.
My mage is great for offering free sustenance and ports that come so easily to her. But she’s also my tailor which comes in handy for my priest.
As a druid, Tals has a knack for herbing and her ability to change forms with ease is hard to ignore.
Then there’s my pali who is often used as my plate-wearing twin, when I can’t wear items higher than my cloth components. Although she could also be described as Cymre’s hard-hitting sister.
While running through MC, BWL, AQ40, and Naxx over the weekend, I got to thinking…
If a future patch adds more raid-dropped pets like those introduced in 5.1, what pets would you like to see? What raid and boss would they be available from?
When I think back over the last eight months, my Pet Battling activity is still going strong. So with my classic raid collection complete, there are a few (ok, more than a few) other raid bosses I’d love to see as future pets.
Now it’s not like I really need a reason to go into Ulduar but if I could choose a couple of the bosses there, it would have to be Freya and Algalon. Titans – the Watchers of Azeroth, need I say more?
I’ve loved the look of the Val’kyr, ever since I saw Hildana Deathstealer floating down into the fighting pit in Icecrown. So it’s no surprise that the Twin Val’kyr are on this list. Even better than using the Glyph of the Val’kyr – which I’ll never use – Disc forever!
Next up is ICC. Some of you may remember my mog set lightly based on Blood-Queen Lana’thel and I just think Marrowgar would make an interesting looking pet.
From BC, I’m adding Supremus from Black Temple and The Curator from Karazhan to the list.
Lastly, there’s Moam, General Rajaxx and Emalon the Storm Watcher.
OK, done! Promise.
Do you think I missed any? :P
