Your favourite screenshot? There are loads and loads of funny screenshot I’ve taken and other people have taken, but for this one I wanted to choose something bit more meaningful. This screenshot is taken weekish after my first visit to see my boyfriend in Sweden. He wanted to surprise me, and oh he did, he had the lovely picnic basket and then we just sat in Skype talking ^_^ He is really awesome and always looking ways to surprise me or make me feel happier. <3 :)
The longest you’ve gone without playing? Back in Wrath, I think at least, I was away for 6 months. Then I had few months here and there when I couldn’t afford the gametime. But after that been playing nonstop ;P (Oh short post and no pictures O.o Writing this in a bit rush, going swimming yaaay!! :P)
Your non-combat pets (choose one character and link it)?
Oh boy! I love non-combat pets, so so much. I started collecting them in classic when we had small bags and tiny bank and no own pet page. But I think this post would be bit too long if I would post all of my pets, since at the moment I have 452 pets. Just gonna link some of my favourite ones (I love all my pets just as much!) 🙂
Your favourite battleground? Ok, so for this one, since I don’t really do PvP (most of the time I hate it, but it’s ok to do sometimes and World PvP is just pure hate), the answer is going to be really girly point of view. My favourite BG is Gilneas, and purely just because it is pretty. 🙂
How did you come up with your main’s name? I’ve had few different names in the past Cional, Lakritsi (liquorice in finnish ;D), Maplé. But my current one Rinike is a anagram of my middle name. When I was thinking about to start a blog I wanted a name that was different without any funny letters and would be unique (well at least at this moment it is unique :D), so I after some thinking I came up with this one 🙂
Your favourite class and why? My favourite class is DRUID!! and why? Well just because I have so many choices with it, I can be healer, tank, kitty or boomkin dps if I feel like it. My main spec is Resto and at the moment off spec is tank, I love healing as a druid it’s so chill and all the hots <3 I tried to be dps, I tried to be lazerchicken from space, I tried to be kitty dps but it just didn’t work. I’m healer by heart <3 (tank spec is just so I can stare at furry bear but while I solo some old stuff ;D But tanking is really awesome with druid too).
My Druid is Night Elf, I was Worgen when they were released in cataclysm, but the animation for them wasn’t just what I was really hoping for (because wolves <3) so I changed back. I would love to be Draenei or Gnome Druid tho :) And let’s not forget one of the best part being druid, you have matching pet for almost every form (for aquatic form you can always choose aquatic pet and for flight form just choose your favourite flying one ^^) Here are some examples:
Best and worst thing about WoW? Lets start with the worst part, I think it is that with all the social events and things like that are kind of drying out, like for example before you had to actually talk to people to get into a dungeon. And all the Mr and Mrs “I know it all, so I’m better than you” types that seems to rule the instances. Oh oh and tanks joining as dps, dps trying to tank, healers as dps and other way around, and all because “well I can do that”. I think Blizzard should make that thing better so people fill the role that they are actually supposed to be, but it’s easier said than done I know. And I’m really glad there are still people out there that want to organize old raids and stuff with people, and talk to people. (Twitter guys, I mean you! <3)
I think the best part of WoW is that you can actually do almost anything you want, dye your hair, switch armor, collect mounts and pets, you can have your own farm now too. Do dailies or choose not to, choose scenarios or dungeons or both. LookingForRaid option (I learned to like it more now with the new loot system), PvP arenas, rated battlegrounds, normal battlegrounds. And most of all ACHIEVEMENTS! 🙂 So much to choose from 🙂 I just love this game! <3
Your favourite WoW related YouTube video? This one is so so easy (tho it’s in 3 parts ;D), I’ve had same favourite video since ever!
They are short movies following same story, it’s called Tales of the Past.
Maquans (Marting Falch, director) own words about the series:”The series originally started out as a guild promotion movie for my guild, Eden Aurorae.However, as it got popular, I decided to continue and make my second storyline movie, Tales of the Past, which was indeed a way more serious project than the original guild movie. The original idea of Tales of the Past was to make a movie with arranged events between the Horde and the Alliance – as you’ve seen, the same thing goes for Tales of the Past II.Tales of the Past II was my ambition to make what I did not make in Tales of the Past.Voice Acting, camera changes, action, a script, a plot – everything a movie should contain. This ambition turned out to result in quite a ride, spanning over 6 months of hard work, but also tons of fun with all the actors, voice actors and supporters of the movie! In the end it fulfilled my ambition and I am satisfied with the result, even though I know I can improve in many areas! I have learned tons from this production and I know a lot more than I did when I began.”
“It is also the best and largest scale machinima movie ever created using recordings from World of Warcraft – with multiple large battle-scenes involving thousands of players participating.” -WoWWiki
About the movies, if you haven’t watched them you REALLY should! You have missed so much 😛 The whole storyline is so amazing, the characters, voice acting, it brings chills on my back everytime I watch them (and I usually watch them all on the same day), so much effort put on those!!! WATCH THEM! WATCH THEM NOW! ;D
What do you listen to while playing? I usually listen music (sometimes I watch series, at the moment I’m watching Pokemon, season 5) and the music genre totally depends on my mood. Lately I’ve been listening Disney music <3 Sometimes I use the Soundrop on Spotify or radio. As you can see I have loads of different lists, and some of them include same songs because the lists are mostly made for different moods 🙂 P.S. Sonata Arctica is the best band in the world 😉 <3 P.P.S. Edit: Forgot to list few bands inside the mix albums, Stone Sour, Slipknot, Three Days Grace, Scar Symmetry, Avenged Sevenfold, Deathstars, Thousand Foot Krutch, Crossfade, Breaking Benjamin, Drowning Pool, Trapt and many others 🙂
