Yes, it’s another gamer-chick post. You’ll have to tolerate it, because it’s part of who I am.
So I had the afternoon off Friday, and D and I were able to get some gaming time in together. (Note…I’m giving up on the “+cat” nicknames, and I’ll just use the first letter of their names. D=Hubby.)
How’d we get in gaming time with an infant? Tired baby = Nap = time to do what we want. H took a very long nap in the afternoon and another in the evening. I opted to ignore the cleaning for a day. So D and I logged into WoW and did some Cataclysm stuff.
We completed the Worgen starting area. (Worgen = Werewolf, for the uninitiated.)
There she is. Isn’t she CUTE? Aren’t I CUTE as a wolf? Notice….I did NOT say DOG.
So I made her a druid. I love druid stuff in real life. So I always thought Druid would be my class. But alas, I have tried to play a druid 5 different times in the last, er 4 years. I can’t do it. I loose interest around level 20. But I always tried feral (change into powerful animals) or resto (healing) druids before. This time…I’m going balance. D says that’s more like a Mage. I like mages. So there you go.
So D and I did the whole starting area. We fought in the battles against the attacking Worgen as humans. I LOVE LOVE LOVED the cinematic that explained how I became infected with the Worgen curse and turned into one. That was so freakin cool. We did the entire questline before bed.
And then…and then….I felt so depressed. I was so sad about the outcome of the questline. And I was so sad that I’m stuck as a Worgen. I mean, even if I ultimately like my character as the wolf chick. I felt sad for her.
I also had dreams overnight where I was fighting werewolves and undead. So there you go. Video game dreams for the win!
I noticed something about my gameplay though. I play Alliance, because that’s what D played when he got me started. I’ve always thought the Horde characters were ugly. No way did I want to play ugly toons. I mean, you spend the game basically following your character, staring at their behinds. They should be cute behinds. But if I look over my list of toons….they’re night elves, draeni (which I can’t spell for some reason), and now worgen. Any humans, dwarves, or gnomes I’ve started, are extremely low level and languishing without my attention. Hmmm. I apparently don’t like to follow the human-looking creatures. Hmmm.
Or maybe it’s the blue. I like the blue skins…
Gotta go put up the Christmas Tree quick…so D and I can play through the Goblin starting zone!
