Helping other players is really hard!

The king of Daimond

I like to inspect other players, i always do that, to check gear, to see their guild, but mostly to see their transmog and what items they use, sometimes i find new players, usually they have no guild, they don’t use heirlooms, so i offer help sometimes, usually free bags, or if they ask for help i try to help.

Today, i saw someone in Pandaria, a dwarf level 88, no guild and no heirlooms, i thought this is a new player, i have Son of Animus pet, i tried to sell in the Auction House 3 times and no one buy it, so i thought of giving it to the dwarf Paladin, whispered him, told him i have this free pet, do you want it?

After a long wait, he asked why i’m offering it for free? i said i already have one, asked again if he wants it, he said no thanks, i typed “weird” but removed that before sending “alright … have a nice day”

I don’t have energy to argue, the dwarf feels suspicious of free gifts, which i think is a good thing but not in this context, i’m offering a virtual pet in a virtual world, what harm there is to fear? sigh … sometimes helping other players is harder than killing raid bosses.

This is my story today, and here is some random screenshots.

Desert, train and Jones

sd01
Desert night, so romantic, with all the cultist running around!

More and more i see things in the games makes me tell myself: i have to watch Indiana Jones movies!

I never watched them, in WoW there is Uldum zone which is full of Harrison Jones quests, and in Secret World Legends there are many missions makes me think about the movies, so maybe i should just watch them.

I’m done with the first zone of Egypt, named Scorched Desert, if this zone was there in real life and there is no dangerous monsters, i’ll go there, i love deserts which have small towns, oases, mountains and people, desert rich with life, you could be a tourist and find peace in the same time.

Anyway, the starting of the zone have interesting missions, then things slow down in the middle then everything goes crazy at the end, the last mission is so interesting, i felt like i’m Indiana Jones, trying to stop a train while fighting cultists.

By the end of the mission i learned major lore details, the story here connect the start of the game with a zone i will visit in the future, if i didn’t pay attention, if i didn’t see videos for the story before, i would not understand these details.

The dreadlord again?

Wowhead published a post about Blizzcon 2017 key art, something Blizzard apparently do every year (i didn’t know that) , this year it is Jaina Proudmoore, as usual the comments are the same old comments we see every time people talk about Jaina.

Where do i start? the tasteless joke about Jaina being a dreadlord and the people who ask Blizzard to turn her into that? people who call her names because she was angry at the horde and asked Varian to dismantle the horde? people who wants her to be a raid boss?

To be honest i don’t care about all that, Blizzard can turn her into dreadlord or a a raid boss, i just want Blizzard to turn Sylvanas into raid boss in the same expansion and let’s see what will happen in comments wars.

What makes me upset about these comments is the lack of empathy, and it’s not just about fictional characters, i see this lack of empathy in real life news, instead of treating misfortune as a tragedy, some people show complete lack of kindness, compete with each other on who write the rudest, cruelest comments.

I understand, people can’t be all the same … still, it is troubling when you see people justify war crimes.
