Gilneas from afar, i wish to see it again as a main city for the Alliance

“i’ll help you … with a DANCE!”

Art appreciation, very important activity while your city under seige by werewovles and the undead … always stop for art.

Greymane Manor … huge.

The manor from inside, Gilnean people are worried, the queen talking with them.

Is this Harry Potter reference?

I’m not convinced yet, pie is good but so is cake and tarts … and galette!

Back to worgen

WoWScrnShot_052318_155013.jpg

Back to playing normal, by that i mean just enjoying WoW while playing at my pace, which is slow, i’ll admit, it was a mistake to try leveling 2 character as fast as possible, doing that meant i’ll turn the game into homework and i’ll start to play less because of that.

I’m back to where i started, in Gilneas, after buying WoW my first character was a worgen, but that was long time ago, now none of my characters is worgen and i need to correct that mistake, so i deleted my low level druid and replaced him with a worgen, named him Lerral, as always i’ll try to choose a name from Myst games.

Worgen starting zone is a long story i wish it never end, the atmosphere of the whole zone is something i love so much and i can’t explain it, it is the whole mix of werewolves and gothic city and there is a hint of steampunk, an aesthetic i love.

The only other zone which have something like that is Duskwood, there will be more of these themes in BfA in Kul Tiras, not going to write about it here because i’m sure some people want to avoid any spoilers.

If you haven’t played worgen starting zone i think you should try it, and if you collect items for transmog then that is a good reason to do that, Two quests in the zone give you weapons and some of them are unique:

For example i like this gun, and this staff looks creepy cool, and this mace, if you want all these weapons then make a warrior worgen character, play the whole zone.


In Wowpedia there is a page about Harvest witch, humans who have some control over nature and they will have a major role in next expansion, this is the link between druidism and Kul’tirans druids, and it is not the good old druidism we know from the classic wow days, it is something different.

When Blizzard showed the Zandalari druid forms i was so excited by that, i thought they’ll never make anything cooler than that, then someone at Blizzard thought “hold my tea” (yes tea!)ย  and made Kul’tiran druid forms which is cooler and creepy in a good way.

This makes me want to do two things:

  • read WoW RPG books and see what they say about druids and humans.
  • read about real life druid history.

Anyway .. i just find this whole new kind of druidism in wow fascinating, and we are getting more of creepy things to see, while i hate violent and horror movies, there is a part of me love “creepy but cool” things … i honestly don’t know how to explain that, so i’ll stop here ๐Ÿ™‚

Purple Horse

WoWScrnShot_050718_205422

In the pervious post i said Warlocks have one mount and it change colors depend on the spec, i was wrong, and i’m happy for being wrong because now i can have purple horse while playing any spec, the purple horse drop from an elite demon in Broken Shore, the fire horse is sold in the Class Hall.

I wish other classes have this system where you can use any mount, for example priests have one mount and it change colors with spec, maybe Blizzard thought that is important because shadow must have only shadow owl, but holy golden owl looks better and i can’t have it.

WoWScrnShot_050918_014824
Fir horse looks good too

Trying to get Fishfreind of the isles achievement, i’m done with Keeper Raynae and bought a cooking recipe and a fishing bobber from her, it was a quick reputation grinding, i used the group finder to find a fishing raid, with so many people around fishing it can be done in an hour or a little more.

The amazing thing here is people are friendly and talking, other people come by confused and asking “what is going on here?” and i answer “we love fishing” which is true but also we want to do these achievement quickly before BfA, because after that it’ll be hard to do them solo, it will take much more time.

WoWScrnShot_050818_201358
So many people fishing, you don’t see this every day

Now trying to get the hidden look for Warlock artifact weapons, they need time to get the items, Affliction for example need 13 skulls from elites in Broken Isles, not any elites but the ones with a World Quest, so i only have 3 skulls so far, because these quests don’t show up so often, more than that the elite should be a humanoid or a demon, so some WQ don’t offer any skulls.

BFA is near, so i’m trying to clear quest logs, level up profession, do some reputation grind, finish what i can before BFA, in WoD player complained about the lack of content, now there is so much of it, but this is a good problem to have.

Another Alt at 110

WoWScrnShot_031818_110535

I’m done, no more leveling.

Maybe later, but for not before BfA, leveling is tedious, now i have a new alt at level 110, a Void Elf Warlock, i got the class hall mount and theย  heritage armor, i doubt i’ll ever do that again, maybe Kul’Tiran druid, but other than that? i don’t know.

Leveling from 20 to 80 is tedious, when i reach Pandaria i relax and enjoy playing, reaching Draenor means leveling quickly to reach Legion, Draenor right now offer the fastest leveling experience of all expansions.

Everything after this point is just me rambling, and some screenshot.

WoWScrnShot_031818_224301

Instead of flying between Ironforge and Stormwind, i took the tram, i thought i’ll take a look at the Brawler guild, then stayed there while i’m AFK, i gained 17 Brawler Gold just for being there, not the fastest method for collecting these, but there, now you know

WoWScrnShot_031818_224758

Topper McNabb, he was there since Classic, he saw Deathwing and survived, he stood there in Stormwind asking for coppers all these years, offering to shine your armor for just a copper, and yet .. and yet … he is still there, there is no justice in the world.

Seriously, why i can’t give him coppers for a buff says “you feel happier” and does nothing else? why i can’t give him food? or invite him to the one of many taverns and inns in the city? how about hiring him to do some jobs for me?

There are many NPCs in the game to give the world a flavor, why not add more function to them?

WoWScrnShot_031818_235020

someone in Blizzard having too much fun inventing and writing these debuffs, whoever you are, well done.

WoWScrnShot_032018_015521

I don’t think gravity works this way, maybe he was trying to impress me with a magic trick?

WoWScrnShot_041518_112926

Some parts of the game still work like good old days, i’m waiting for Classic to go back to such details, when you have to go back to a trainer to learn spells, i like that.

WoWScrnShot_042218_021644

While questing in Hellfire Peninsula, i saw this text, a world boss spawned and killed in seconds, i never saw him before, no matter how long i wait, once i tried to camp him for 3 days, i gave up, Doom Lord Kazzak is still a myth for me.

WoWScrnShot_042718_204244

Yes, another place to fish, some where in Jade Forest.

WoWScrnShot_043018_004307

Hozen idea of a totem, Blizzard … hi there .. can you make it? i want my shaman to have a banana totem, i think it is a funny idea, just imagine faction leaders silp on banana peel ๐Ÿ˜€

While doing quests in Kun-Li Summit, i saw few items give me powerful buffs, they are all called:

They give the player chance to do a huge damage and movement speed, i wish these items are every where, in all zones,

WoWScrnShot_043018_041423

There must always be a Lich King a poop quest.

WoWScrnShot_043018_144837

A tradition is born, i must take screenshot for my alt when they reach level 90.

WoWScrnShot_043018_165103

The thing you notice when you pay attention .. a floating imp head?

WoWScrnShot_050218_011306

The Legion is our doom, we need a strong artifacts and weapons, me? no .. i want to fish.

WoWScrnShot_050218_205906

Playing fetch the bone with black sheep, the favorite game for warlocks.

WoWScrnShot_050318_142934

Yes Velen, it is, warlocks don’t fight for the light … just for our own power.

WoWScrnShot_050318_214115

Heritage armor, looks pretty, and a chance to talk about Void Elf/Blood Elf male characters, i just can’t play them, i want to but they have this “duckface” look to them, so Blizzard will fix that in BfA.

WoWScrnShot_050618_165835

Class hall mount, it change colors with specs, alas Demonlogoy get the purple color, i want that but i play affliction.
