The Godmother's #10years10questions
I have been rather busy of late - my blog is pathetic with it's daily posting and now I see I was a little bit slow getting to Godmother's little questionairre - though I do feel like she doesn't NEED my responses because she has like a billion followers and would have to wade through all of them, but because she is my friend, I shall do it anyway!
Why did you start playing World of Warcraft?
Edit: Ok I misread this question (thanks Balkoth...) - I started playing because my friend Cymre told me to!
What was the first ever character you rolled?
A male night elf hunter. Whom I have since deleted because I am ASHAMED.
Which factors determined your faction choice in game?
The person who introduced me to the game was playing a night elf so I chose a night elf to play with her.
What has been your most memorable moment in Warcraft and why?
I have so many! But here is mine - it's not a warcraft MOMENT exactly but it's a blogging moment which is vaguely wow related. It was the Blog azeroth thanksgiving event in 2011 where I met many of my blog friends who write about WoW and are my friends to this day and enrich my wow life every time I play!
If I had to pick a moment in the game itself, it would have to be when I got my first legendary - Val'anyr. The big guild effort even though it was past its usefullness was pretty cool!
What is your favourite aspect of the game and has this always been the case?
Socialising is my favourite aspect of the game, though raiding was my fave aspect for the longest time. I still love to raid, but I'm just as happy sitting around talking to everyone as I stand around in Orgrimmar.
Do you have an area in game that you always return to?
As in a zone? Or a place? Is my HEARTH a bad answer? :)
No, I don't RP any fave places. It's all business on my end... BORING answer, I know!
How long have you /played and has that been continuous?
I have not taken a break since I started playing. So... coming up to 9 years I guess! And for Navimie her /played is 498 days.
Admit it: do you read quest text or not?
Ok, I admit it, I don't. Most of the time. Wait, does reading the objectives count???
Are there any regrets from your time in game?
I regret my behaviour to some people in the game. I've only learned to be a better person through my mistakes, and now I am super conscious of how I handle the nuances within an MMO.
What effects has Warcraft had on your life outside gaming?
Hmm, where do I start! For starters, my on call nights for work are Tuesdays and Fridays - non raid days - and that was selected by me so as not to interfere with raiding. Also, everyone at work KNOWS I love to play WoW so it's like the thing people know me by!
