The good news is I have 2 weeks on holiday starting as of right now. No exotic foreign travels planned, instead it will be days out here and there, possibly even some time to play WoW and I may even manage the odd blog post here and there too.
On the WoW front there has been a few things happening, lets see….
- Paladin to level 70, Northrend here I come. Still not sorted out the professions dilemma but I do think Enchanting over engineering is the likely one.
- Hunter still at 78. I’m bored with the hunter, it just doesn’t grab me the way some other classes do. The last couple of levels will be a grind for me.
- Shadowpriest. I finally took the plunge and moved him to the new server to join the rest of them. I’ve left a rogue behind as a placeholder in the old guild as there are a couple of people I’d like to stay in touch with. That there are only a couple explains why its time for a change. Transferred the character and I’m in my worst nightmare – this. My shadowpriest has been my longest played character and has had the same name throughout those years, now he has to get a new name due to some imposter. So what craven ne’er-do-well has got my name on this server? Here’s the culprit. Some alliance priest with bad facial hair and a tendency to heal. The entire episode leaves a sour taste. I’m sure he’s really an alt of some female gnome with pink ponytails.
So I’m in the situation where I require a new name for the shadowpriest and I need it, like NOW! My mind goes blank and I can only think of names already taken or really crap ones. In a moment of panic I go for Archlector which is the senior rank in the Inquisition in Joe Abercrombie’s books. The following day I hate it and promptly spend the £6 to change it. I’ve gone for Misera. Its based mostly on the Shadowpriest Talent Misery, I also like gold collecting so there is a bit of a pun in the use of ‘Miser’. The ‘A’ at the end was just to make it sound a bit better. My guild character already has the note ‘Cheer up’ attached.
On the blog update I have removed the Wasmemon link. Its been inactive for 3 months so I reckon they aren’t coming back. It’s a pity as I quite liked the way it was written. The character still seems to be playing just not blogging. If the blog resurrects I’ll add it back in. I’ve also added Bible of Dreams to the links list.
Also time for a change on the music front. As Devo have just realeased their first album of new material in about 20 years, its time to revisit a classic – Gut Feeling.
