Blog Azeroth Shared Topic: Custom-Fit Professions

2

This week’s Blog Azeroth Shared Topic comes to us via Effraeti.

Professions are fun for some and a necessary evil for others.

Some of us have farming professions. Some of us have crafting professions. Some of us have a little bit of everything! Professions are leveled because they fit our style of play, help us in raiding, allow us to outfit our alts, and make us money.

What professions do you have on your main? Do his/her professions fit their personality? Why did you choose them? If you chose professions based on your character and not on gaming needs, would that change some of their professions they use?

I have every profession represented in the Fay Family but my main, Fayona, sticks to Jewelcrafting and Tailoring as her primary professions and they definitely fit her personality. Fay definitely loves her bling and constructing the finest threads to strut, mirror image and blink her way across Azeroth. Plus, remember in those days when JC actually could make you a little gold? Quite nice, wasn’t it? And yes, Fay is definitely a fan of making large sums of gold to fund she and the rest of her sassy little posse.

And I don’t know if you heard the dirty rumor about the bad ass Jeweled Onyx Panther mount in Mists of Pandaria? Wellllll, the Fay Family is definitely looking forward to slangin’ a few of those across the local auction house.

Also, quick note. This week’s Sevenly cause benefits Cure and, “will help support a disfigured child to finally live a normal life. For every $1,100 we raise, CURE International will provide a life-altering surgery for 1 of these children. Our goal is to fund the surgeries of 15 children!”

They’ve also added a bunch of new items to purchase; tote bags, sassy sweatshirts and phone covers! So now you’ve got a variety of ways to benefit a charity that resonates with you. As always, DO GOOD!

Blog Azeroth Shared Topic: Renaming Warcraft

3

This week’s Blog Azeroth topic is brought to us by Frinka.

Frinka asks:

Knowing what you know now about the game, what name other than World of Warcraft would you give it and why?

Now, I could think of a number of appropriate and rather inappropriate names to throw at WoW, but I’m going to answer based on the game and it’s current state.

WORLD OF BORECRAFT: Stretching Content

No new content for almost 8 months now. Not even epic gem transmutes! Raiding is pretty much done and even the lame guilds on my server have plowed their way through Dragon Soul, but most honestly took the opportunity months ago to take temporary some time off from the game and raiding to enjoy summer or pursue other gaming adventures. I mean, Orgrimmar on my server is desolate.. empty… abandoned. Which is odd for my server as we have a rather large player base from around the world.

I really wish Abyssal Maw had been released instead of teasing us with the lore, dungeon and raid maps and pretty art instead of tossing us Diablo 3 and giving beta access to Pandaland to appease us. Don’t get me wrong, both are nice, but something still feels not quite complete in this expansion. I mean, we got to explore some of Abyssal Maw lore with Throne of the Tides and experienced Neptulon’s rage… YANK… totally scrapped.

There is still a handwritten bucket list of things that I’d like to have complete before MoP comes out, mounts and pets I’d like to farm, a guild bank to fully stock, and gold to be made, but there isn’t that drive to do it like before. Hell, even the social aspect of the game is gone because of the lack of function between D3 and WoW.

Regardless, I’ve been having fun exploring other games, prepping for various Cons rolling into San Diego and expanding my gamer-resume. This last stretch has definitely been difficult and boring, but I haven’t really played the beta, so everything will be fairly fresh and new to me. And that’s what’s keeping me excited.

What about you? What are you looking forward to or very much missing in Warcraft?

Blog Azeroth Shared Topic: Insert NPC Here

6

If Blizzard added your main as an NPC in WoW, where would they be located and what would be their function? Give us a shot illustrating the fact.

I’m definitely the typical female Warcraft player by way of pet and mount collecting. But I’ve also got this semi-endearing, streak of sass that oftentimes inhabits my body come raid time. Let’s face it, raiding can be high stress and oftentimes (at least in my guild) there are people flipping out. During those times the sass in me comes out in full force a la the Incredible Hulk. And much like Mr. Hulk, it may be destructive, it’s rarely pretty, but it gets the job done and oftentimes brings a chuckle or two. Therefore, if an NPC of my main in game existed I’d be Fayona, Dash Sass Vendor.

Bring it!

Guild members raging in Mumble? Pug raider bragging about experience? “That guy” delaying the raid? LFR noobs gettin’ you down? Visit Fayona in Dalaran for your Dash of Sass! Just one potent charge will be all it takes to keep the raid orderly, moving and in check! *snapsnapsnap*

You’ll be able to find Fayona and her potent item in Dalaran on the balcony across from the bank. Why? Because Dalaran holds her fondest memories! Plus, she’ll never cower in fear of some Alliance dirtbag killing her. What was that you say? No one goes there any more? Well, maybe if you’re lucky another kind mage will port you there. After all, come Mists of Pandaria, we’ll no longer need reagents!

And when you visit her, remember she’s always fashion forward. So transmog in advance with pet to match and get one of the most necessary items for raiding.
