Hello, Azeroth!

How are you this fine evening? Good, good, glad to hear it. I’m one of the new contributers to this Metroblog, and I have a few confessions to make.

For my first confession: I’ve been a citizen of Azeroth since November, 2005. And I have yet to hit 60.

My main character is a Gnome Warlock named Taiyen on Bronzebeard, and she just hit 52 yesterday. I’m getting close! I’m a proud member of the Daughters of the Alliance, an all-girl, livejournal based guild. In fact, the Daughters are part of the reason I rolled on a PVE realm instead of a PVP one. In order to satisfy my bloodthirsty nature, I have a Tauren Hunter on Demon Soul, but she doesn’t see much play time now as I scramble my way to the top.

As for what I plan to post… Well, I’m not sure quite yet. I’d like to explain a bit about my experiences in an all girl guild, and the struggles and accomplishments there. Having my first 60’ll be interesting, and I can’t wait to hit end game, even though I don’t plan to do much raiding. I’d also like to ramble on about the ever-blurring line between reality and the World of Warcraft. (Like the used cars salesman who was also a goldfarmer.)

Life is certainly strange sometimes.

    That is not that bad. I have been playing since the second day of open beta and still dont have a lvl 60. My highest is Qog , an Orc warrior on Suramar and he just hit 36.
    I have about 30 characters across the realms.

    I am twinking out 2 lvl 19s on Silver Hand and may twink out a 3rd on the Horde side just to play WSG more since about 80% of that server is alliance.

    I guess my excuse for not having a 60 is I like to explore and some of the characters get old, fast.

    I’d like to hear about your experiences in an all-girls guild. I’ve heard of DotA, and regretted that I didn’t play on that server. :) I was a member of an all-girls guild just once; I eventually left because no one actually did anything together, and also because the “brother” guild for boyfriends began to become too involved in ours. I still have the dream, though, of a big, active, serious all-girls guild.

    Just a dumb question. Why do you like an all-girls guild? Personally, I love diversity, so I rather have a mixed-sex guild than a gen-only one.

    I know a couple people who have done the same thing; they have about 10 alts, hovering in the 50s, but mostly because they’re not interested in Guild drama and therefore end-game content isn’t that appealing to them.

    Don’t worry about the not-60 thing at all! It took me close to a year to hit 60 on my main (and only, for the most part) character, and my girlfriend just hit 60 over a year and so after she started playing.

    There seems to be some rush to hit 60, and let me tell you, sometimes it aint all it’s cracked up to be. A lot of boredom and quests in dungeons that you can’t do without a gaggle of other people. But then, I could just have the casual gamer blues. :) I like playing my alts sometimes just for that good old fashioned pavlovian quest-reward positive reinforcement. :)

    Yay for DotA! I am an officer in Daughters of the Horde, but have two DotA alts that I mostly play for traitor’s day once a month.

    I play Tratsch, undead warlock, level 52. :)
