Classy Plays WoW

Adventuring in the online world of Azeroth.

Screenshots of the Week

It’s been a while since I’ve updated — sorry about that. I should probably aim for about 1 post per month.

A few weeks ago my wonderful fiance bought me a monitor from a friend — it’s a perfect widescreen LCD.

I’ve always wanted a widescreen LCD and he knew that so when he had the chance he grabbed it for me.

It has resulted in some very nice screenshots.

I really love my holy (and ret for soloing) paladin.

Obviously. I mean she’s in almost every screenshot…

Stay Classy friends.

Classy Quickie

Howdy all!

Minka hit 90 (woo woo) and is decked in Timeless Isle gear. I need to take her through Throne of Thunder LFR and get her an epic weapon and a mace so that her gear isn’t SO bad (but many thanks to Volde for hooking me up with the blue gears).

Thanks to Mara for that awesome hitting 90 gift! (Bags are always the best!)

Today my fiancé got an excellent deal on a 30″ widescreen flatscreen monitor (might be closer to 28″, I don’t quite know) and all I know is it is huge and WoW looks beautiful on it. He also got me a video card upgrade (I had an old GeForce 6600 and he hooked me up with a GeForce GT 610. Yay for loving fiancés!

That’s about it for now. I am extremely busy this week:

  • Work (8-5 all day er’ry day)
  • Interview Wednesday evening via Phone (which I am about to prep a script for-they will be doing a mock cold call with me at the end of the call)
  • Kickball Wednesday
  • Thursday night football
  • Friday possibly zipping home to help load a truck
  • Saturday festival
  • Sunday – adult confirmation class, sleep, finish crochet project

So you can see that does not leave a whole lot of time for WoW. However, I believe everything should be enjoyed in moderation so I will play a little next week maybe :)

Stay Classy!

 

 

Reflections of my G-ma’s 80th Birthday

So tonight I went to my grandmother’s 80th birthday party.

Obviously this will be a non-WoW post.

I love my grandma, don’t get me wrong. She’s a great woman, raised 3 kids while going to school, married well, and now enjoys her life of leisure with plenty of friends.

What bothered me was something my aunt said. My aunt I am closest to is the one who looks more like me. Browner hair, few extra pounds, dimples, funny, easygoing, takes life as it comes.

She relayed a story to me that really pissed me off.

My other aunt seems to be a total bitch. My parents live out in the country and yes, it’s tough for them to drive in for these events. Granted, they probably should have made it but still, you don’t get drunk and threaten my father that he had better come to events or put up a tent.

Seriously, back off lady. That’s your brother. Don’t be that bitch nobody wants to be around.

No wonder my parents avoid these things like wildfire. They did attend our second cousins wedding for a little bit and frankly, that was long enough.

It just pisses me off that she had the audacity to say that. When you threaten people like that, they won’t come back. She’s now an alcoholic so there’s yer sign.

And I love my cousins but all they aspire to is to have a big house and assets.

Okay?

Aspire to be happy. Have a family. Get married. Live where you want, happily. Doesn’t matter the size of your house or how much money you have.

For shit’s sake, was I the only one raised with a heart? Who wants love and happiness above materialistic shit? Newsflash: you can’t take it with you when you pass.

My mother worked three jobs to put herself through college. Her mother didn’t give her a damn dime. My aunts had shit handed to them.

Ugh. I love my mother. My aunts will never be as sweet, loving, and caring as she is. They don’t even come close. Just two spoiled brats, even my mother’s sister. Buncha brats.

Well I am going to go home and get some sleep. We have a bit of a drive (1.5 hours) but we’ll be home eventually.

Chibi Cuteness Part 2: Minka!

It’s time to introduce another chibi from the talented Sleepingfox of http://sleepingfox.deviantart.com !

Please give her a hand for her beautiful study of Minka the Blood Elf Paladin!

 

896cfc9f10fda628866537334ee4e5bc-d6izo9x

She turned out so beautiful! Now I get to explain why I chose everything that I did!

From the top: I made her eyes hazel because mine are hazel. I picked those beautiful white and blue paladin shoulders because I feel they epitomize everything there is about a paladin, and the torn cloth strips with holy markings just made it even better! I picked her dress because it is one of my favorites! Her bracers are matching ones from Dalaran, and her boots are a custom-colored design made by Rebecca. The sprite darter is one of my favorite pets in the game so I wanted her to be snuggled down by her feet, looking around curiously. And of course, there’s the cute little diamond ring on her left hand ;)

Her pose is from the classic “I’m a bride and I wore my cowboy boots under my dress!” I fully intend to do this for my wedding reception. I was born and raised in the heart of Texas and I have no plans to leave anytime soon. For my wedding I will probably wear kitten heels and for the reception — here come the boots! I also intend to change into a shorter reception dress for the last hour or so of the reception.

I hope you find my Minka as beautiful and cute as I do!

Rebecca/Sleepingfox’s commissions are currently open so please visit her and get your beloved characters drawn. One day the game will be gone and all we will have are our memories, screenshots, and artwork, and I intend to cherish mine always!

Stay Classy Azeroth!

Classy Move of the Week – August 15

Hello all!

The other day I joined a random Lich King dungeon and ended up in Utgarde Keep. Today’s post is a shoutout to those 3 other brave souls who beat up mobs with me almost all the way to the end after our tank abandoned us for no good reason.

Our warlock happily stepped in which leads me to say a quick prayer that they get a true tanking spec someday.

Big kudos to these people:

Ambassador Pappalegba – WyrmrestAccord <Sapphire Shaolin Society>
Mystonnaire the Patient – Nesingwary <The Crimson Shadows>
Zarielil – Farstriders <Natural Order>

We proceeded to slam dunk the rest of the instance on our own, until a friendly tauren joined us for the last 4 pulls. Thanks dude!

I also have some screenshots to share with y’all. Some are from the past, some are from recently.

Enjoy.

Minka the Pally

Well, the time has come.

My sweetie recently proposed and August 2014 we will be married!

I’m slowly getting used to having a ring on my finger that’s worth wayyyyy more than my car…but I think I’ll get used to it.

However, I’ve been WAY too busy in the fancy schmancy wedding stuff so I haven’t been playing much.

I decided one of my last goals will be to level a female blood elf paladin like I’ve always wanted to do, and transmog her out as much as possible for funsies. Maybe do some raids.  Heck, maybe I’ll even get the fiance to raid too.  He did ding 90 on alliance, now he’s working on a horde.

But here’s a cute picture. See y’all soon.

Friday Screenshot Compilation

I’ve leveled Miss Lumina to 71 now, and she’s been race changed to Alliance because I missed my BF and alliance friends too much.

Here are some pictures from her journey.

She grew up to be kind of a badass.

Check out Legionkiller.  C’mon Blizzard, fix crossbow scaling…

I still intend to level another blood elf in the future though. Maybe paladin.

ilLUMINAted

Meet Lumina.

She’s my adorable little hunter.

Pretty sure eventually, when she’s 90, she’ll be my new main for the remainder of WoW.

I did actually give her mail gear after this picture, instead of the leather.

I also snapped a pretty picture of Eversong.

And some of my sassy rogue.

Bear power, yo.

Enjoy the eye candy.

Beautiful Shado-Pan Monastery

I am fishing while listening to Zen Music on Spotify.

I am quite relaxed.

I might even fall asleep right here on the bed.

But…not before I share some of the in-game beauty with you.

Classy Brainstorm

I play too much WoW and never really accomplish  much when I’m on.

So, I need a game plan.

I am currently debating between keeping both alliance and horde on ONE server or splitting my alliance toons and horde toons each on a different server.

In the long run, because of how they are set up now, the latter would be cheaper and cost me only the transfer cost for 2 toons.  The first would cost me 3 toons.

But the first almost seems ideal. This would not be accomplished until after May.  I am in the process of moving in with le boyfriend but once my lease is up in May on my apartment, I will have quite a bit of money free each month to a) pay CC’s off with (COMPLETELY, DONE, NADA, ZILCH, EMPTY CARDS) and also transfer/tidy up some toons.

By June I should have also gotten a raise ($50/paycheck), lost 20 pounds, and regained my insurance discount for being in shape ($50). Also, the gym membership will be tossed ($50). Very nice.  June will be a great month!

But, back on topic.

So, one can have a maximum of 10 toons per server.

I currently have:

Server 1

  • Priest (A)
  • Druid (A)
  •  Future Monk (A)

Server 2

  • Hunter (H)
  • Rogue (H)
  • Mage (A)
  • Future Paladin (H)

Server 3

  • Shaman (A)

What I thought I was going to do was this: move shaman to Server 1, and keep Server 2 all horde.

But as you can see, I only have 8 toons maximum. 2 are still imaginary.

With all the new (and probably future) BoA items, it makes more sense for me to be on one server where I can share those, right?

Also, my bf is new and has one toon on one server and I really don’t want to make him have to play horde elsewhere. When he hits 90 on his  monk I am going to want him to be able to buy heirloom gear and other things to send to another toon.  If he plays on two servers, then that is two sets of gear.

So, for now, I am thinking in terms of “which toons have I not played in forever and just don’t really care about anymore? Which do I want to focus on the most?”

  • I determined I don’t play shaman but once in a blue moon. I won’t be pursuing any quests or LFR gear on her. However, she is a scribe, and that would be handy to have with my druid, the herbalist. Originally they were together. I played Shaman in Vanilla, a little of BC, Wrath, and Cataclysm.
  • I feel the same way about my mage. Fun, but not fun enough to keep my attention.  She also has no professions that I don’t already have. But, I do play her once in a while and she is fun, so I will keep her.  I played mage in Vanilla and BC.
  • I love my rogue, and it is SO MUCH fun stabbing things, but she still comes in just under the hunter. The rogue was never max level in any relevant expansion, but she is currently my highest level horde at (73).
  • My druid is also a joy, but time constraints mean she doesn’t get played as much. After the hunter she will be the next leveling project (85-90). I did a little druiding in Wrath.
  • I also really want a monk (A) and a paladin (H).

As far as I can tell I think I have “played through” the classes and determined which I do like and which I don’t (or could live without).

I’m not a fan of warrior, DK, or warlock.  I enjoy mage and rogue but they aren’t my favorites.

So for now, until my funds increase, I will leave the mage and rogue on their respective servers. Actually, everyone stays on their respective servers.

My priest and my hunter are my favorites for sure.  I think I will try to keep those on the same server so I can share fun things between them.

TL, DR version: I’m going to focus on priest and hunter. I am going to put my new hordes on Borean Tundra in preparation for when I can move all my toons to one server.

Organizing toons can be such a PITA.
