How To Roleplay In World of Warcraft | Basic Guide

I don’t play on a RP server anymore but I can say it was fun while it lasted .. mostly. Here is a basic roleplaying guide for anyone that wants to start.

How To Roleplay In World of Warcraft | Basic Guide


I have some fond memories of RP events I remember taking part in on SWC:

  • Poetry in the Park, which turned out to be Raven Hill in Duskwood.
  • Darnassian wedding in the arches entering Darnassus complete with the full wedding party procession and custom vows.
  • Another wedding set above the water fall in Stranglevale Thorn.
  • And many other smaller events that just seemed to popup unexpectedly like zombie walks, misc parades, ect ect…  A lot of the best roleplay events happen spontaneously.

Impressions on Live Patch 6.0

Well the patch has been Live almost 24 hours now and here are my first impressions. Right off .. I Hate the night elves new model – let’s face it they now look like clowns from outer space! I’ve had people ask me what I thought about the animations and movement changes but I guess I’m pretty unobservant for the most part because off hand I haven’t noticed a difference or maybe I just can’t look past the glaring ghastly glowing clown faces! And why, WHY, Why would the designers make nelves smile so uncharacteristically while dancing I mean “The Joker” might like it but I think it’s hideous. AND why is the barbershop almost 45 gold just for a face change! I did notice the nelves hearth animation, don’t know if I like it but it reminds of “wax on wax off” haha.

I’ve only managed to log four toons since servers came back online and that because it’s so easy as a ‘wow hoarder’ to get sucked into organizing! Let’s see there’s cleaning out bags to the bank to the new materials bank tab and the new second void storage tab. Then there was the guild vault and manually stacking all the materials in there. My toybox is filling up nicely and already stands at 70 toys thus far. Then onto marking my favorite mounts and perusing my missing mounts for clues about where to get them. In the end, my bank remains full but I managed to not fill up all of void storage (yet). And I now have at least 2 empty royal satchels on my main toons. Yah! But then again is 2 royals bags enough room for the new armor sets on the horizon? Doubtful ..

I feared server crashes with so many people blanketing Blasted Lands but it didn’t happen nor was there people stepping all over each other as in events long past. The Blasted Land event is short and swift. I completed it in twenty minutes or less. I noticed on my druid who completed it first thing, that the only reward was the Iron Starelette battle pet. But today my mage completed it and got several blue items as well… go figure!

The UBRS dungeon is quick but then it’s only three of the five listed bosses available currently. I suggest spending a little time researching class changes (Icy Veins) before queuing, especially if your healer.

All of your gear will return to its pre-reforged state. Hit & expertise caps are gone. Stats are squished. Lots has changed. That means much of your equipped gear might not be the best gear anymore, and something hiding in your bags could be better.

The DPS number crunch is going to take some getting used too. The screenshot below was the new UBRS before I went over to check out the suggested changes to gems and enchants.

I don’t quite understand the loot drop in UBRS. I saw people in my party getting blue items from bosses and I didn’t see anything but grey items and gold on the bosses till the last one which rewarded me with Nightbrace Chestguard.

The gold trade off for justice/valor points has been quite nice so far. I’ve gotten like 3400 gold just off these four toon so far. It’ll be interesting to see what I get all together with more than a dz toons at 90.

ToDo List Updated

I had a feeling the patch was gonna be the 14th. So I’ve been trying to tick off items from my ‘ToDo List” and for the most part I’m happy with where I am — tonight being the last night prior to Patch 6.0. There we’re a few things I wanted to finish but didn’t quite get done but then there were also a couple unexpected things that I did complete.

In_the_Hall_of_the_Thunder_King

I have silver on someone for Proving Grounds but I don’t know who because the achievement seems to be account wide and doesn’t say who earned it. But apparently no one can confirm if we need Proving Grounds now or once we’re level 100 in order to enter Warlords heroics. So I guess we wait and see …

I finished my 9th legendary cloak which was paladin this week. Now if you follow my blog you might have noticed it’s been weeks since I finished my runestones but yet I just this week finally went out and did the follow-up quest. I guess I’ve finally reached the burnout for the cloak quest grind. Too bad I’ve got ONE more to go! My warrior will be on the Lion Roars after patch tomorrow. I really wanted my eleventh class leveled and on the quest but it didn’t happen my monk is just now level forty-five.

I already posted about my warlock getting the green fire quest done, yah! I even posted some suggestions for those who are still banging there head against Black Temple.

Challenge_Mode_Gold

Challenge Modes, well it was down to the wire but we got it!! Thanx goes to Barla really because it was her friends that cracked the whip! I chose the Violet Pandaren Phoenix mount of course because it’s purple!! And SURPRISE ..

Mount_Parade



I’ve been on Timeless Isle 3-4 times a week on various toons for the last month but I’ve only managed to tick off two more items on my Timeless Isle: Going To Need A Bigger Bag achieve. Those rares are just being very stingy!

I’ve previously said that I got to rank 8 in Brawlers Guild. However that’s as far as I’m going because Hexos is a %^&# &$@*^ Boss!! What’s worse is Blizzard knows this so when season two opens rank 9/10 will be gone making getting your season two win much easier than the poor souls who toiled away hours, blood, sweat, and tears getting there Brawler’s Guild mount in season one.

I’m absolutely sure I’m forgetting about something but for the most part I’m logging out tonight having; Valor capped every toon and then spent all that valor on upgrades. I went through every characters quest log and made sure to turn in every random quest item I had for Brawlers Guild. I went through and made sure I had the heirlooms that we’re being removed. While I was at it I also noted that my entire mail agility set is MIA. I sure hope this new heirloom tab shows them present and accounted for because I really don’t want to have to purchase them again. And I have a short list of names I’ll try first thing to see if I can snatch when the server comes online tomorrow.

I subscribed to Wowhead this month, I seriously don’t know why I didn’t do it a long time ago. Those random videos that start talking when you least expect it are so annoying. Especially when you have tons of windows open and can’t find where the voices are coming from! Anyway I wanted to try out the Bag Scanner feature. I’ve only scanned a couple of my toons so far but I plan to do all of them asap. My hope is this tool will be capable of replacing another addon, Altoholic to be specific. I love it but I just have too many add-ons!

The Keepsake Project

Starrefyre

With the pending release of Warlord of Draenor a new era for World of Warcraft is about to begin. Not only will we have a new world to explore {again} and more levels to grind {again} we’ll have NEW character models to tweak, twirk, and primp. To preserve some of the last ten years fondest in-game memories featuring our own favorite characters in their current forms our guild is doing what we’re calling The Keepsake Project.

What are you doing to preserve your favorite toons current forms?

Pre-Patch is Downloading ..

.. all nine plus gigs of it! Like holy cow!!

So whats your best guess for when 6.0 is going to go live, huh? I’m going with Oct 14th which is four weeks before the xpac releases on Nov 13, 2014. I went back to the Warcraft timeline and noted that the last three expansion pre-patches went live right about four weeks prior to the xpac.

Not much to really post about today. I got rank 8 in brawlers guild today and the next boss is such a PITA. I may not make it to the last rank before patch, bummers.


I finished my 8th legendary cloak yesterday on my death knight. I finally got a monk past level ten haha. I went mistweaver so he would level quickly, he’s almost level thirty now. I do not see getting him up quick enough to get a cloak so I won’t be reaching that goal. My pally needs two runestones and my warrior will have finished the first week of valor by the end of this week.

Equinox has been growing leaps and bounds. We’re running so much together these days; dailies, timeless isle, old raids ect. Our guild calendar is quite populated with events which is really nice too see. We’re looking to expand for Warlords of Draenor so we’re openly recruiting active members, officers, raid leaders, event coordinators, and class captains. We’re on Llane/Arygos is anyone wants to re-roll and check it out.

Timeless Isle: Going To Need A Bigger Bag (Cont’d)

treasure-treasure

It’s been awhile since I updated my list of items needed for the achieve “Going To Need A Bigger Bag“. My list of items ‘needed’ has shrunk quite a bit as you can see here. Pretty good, I think, especially considering I only started working on it again recently. Of course, I would have preferred finishing it before the account wide ticks started but I didn’t and I’m not going to stop now just because …. so these are the items I still need to collect. I must say to those of you who did get this done on ONE single character — my hats off to ya!!

Looks like for the most part I’m looking at farming named rares not just mobs anymore.
