  • Weirdly, I can't delete my account online.

    For unknown reasons (ahem), the page one would normally use to cancel a WoW subscription isn't working. Saving this to try again later — this is what I'm C&Ping into the field. (And, okay, full disclosure: I'm canceling my second account, not the main account. Yet.) I'm horrified by RealID becoming mandatory on the official […]

  • RP impatience and ICC

    (By which I don't mean "RPing impatient characters". That'd be a different post!) How often do you get impatient for something big to happen for your character? Whether it's a wedding, a breakup, a character revamp, or just having the opportunity to RP with a well-loved but rarely-seen character, there are often circumstances that prevent […]

  • Five years ago today

    It was December 26th, 2004, and as usual, Valinar had gotten a ton of video games for Christmas. One of the games he'd gotten was World of Warcraft. I'd heard of WoW. I was familiar with the Warcraft franchise, having been with Valinar and one of our good friends at the midnight release of Warcraft […]

  • Misheard

    Me (as heard by Valinar): Want to log in and play our little Ovis? Valinar: *cracks up* I think they're called "dwarves", not "Ovis". Me: I said lowbies! Want to log in and play our little lowbies? By the way, if you're on Twitter, and would like to contribute to a running list of "stupidest […]

  • Why can't I roll on that trinket in a random heroic? This is why.

    The other day I took Ovistine — my shadow priest — to Oculus. Now, Ovistine's trinkets kinda suck, so when a Pendulum of Telluric Currents dropped, I was pretty psyched. I was the only DPS caster in the group, so I figured it was a no-brainer that I'd get it. I tried to click the […]

  • Three shoulders, three days

    I hadn't pugged an instance in more than four years. I stopped pugging when I finally fell in with a bunch of folks in WoW, and I still play with those people, plus I've got a raid now, and I often group with them. There's been no need to pug, plus I just generally had […]

  • Ding!

    I officially have more capped characters than I have since vanilla. ^_^ (I had four by the time Burning Crusade came out — Agnesdea, Ovistine, Trisia and Nancie; I had two when Lich King came out — Teuthida and Ovistine.) Now there's Teu, Nancie, and — *fanfare!* — Ovistine. Dinging 80 comes with such a […]

  • /played and playing

    At the risk of making myself /boggle, I gave a look to the /played time on my three most-played characters. Teuthida (L80, raiding main): 62 days, 20 at L80. Ovistine (L75, RP main, main up until late in BC): 67 days Nancie (L80, current favorite for soloing): 19 days, 1 day at L80. (A small […]

  • How flexible is your timeline?

    When I first leveled up a character on my server, I was right in with the first of the rush. I was L60 at the same time most of the "first generation" were hitting L60, and so it was natural to assume that most people were at the same point in their timeline — they'd […]

  • Oh, Blizzard. Your headgear…

    Until yesterday, the most /facepalm-worthy interaction of headgear with character model was on Teuthida, whose Conqueror's Worldbreaker Headpiece has a chain sticking down off the chin, with a little weight at the bottom of the chain.  I'm sure this looks fine on some races… if you're male.  If you're a girl, the chain goes directly […]
