Last night, in Kara, we started talking about our various blogs and I mentioned that I was blocked. "Some of my most popular posts were about the sex buffs, maybe I should continue in that vein," I asked. We have a rather fun and loose group and that was met with relative cheer. "Having done Straight and Gay buffs," I asked, "where do I go from there, bestiality?"
To which my raid leader responded, "Oh -- cross race -- I'd love to hear about Tauren-Gnome couplings."
Okay, let that image sit in your head for awhile and then start laughing.
Funny... but not substantive.
I'll work through this block, however it does kinda mess up my celebration of the 50th post.
In the meantime, here is a edited/modified version of the entry I had in mind:
50 posts! Wow, that is just great, I just... well I don't know what to say. There are a few people I have to thank, the ones that helped me get here and all. Well, first off, we must thank Elune, ya know, just because. I, also, owe a big debt to Big Red Kitty, without reading his blog I'm not sure I would have even considered starting one of my own (and I have a feeling that many of my fellow colleagues feel the same way.) I want to thank all my friends who came to this site and gave me very positive feedback and I want to thank all the readers, lurkers and commentators alike.
When I began this blog i said in the very first post:
If you, like me, feel as if there are aspects of this game that you don't get, come here and share -- I'm certain that I will always have n00bish moments but hopefully, I can start learning from them -- maybe one day I will learn not to use Multi-Shot in a Crowd Control situation!So hopefully I have entertained and informed in these past 49 posts and I will continue to do so... in the meantime, here is a list of some general "Don'ts" that I have learned from my time in WoW.
- vendor stuff that may be useful to another player. (Quick hint: "of the whale" vendor or DE it, "of the bandit" AH that badboy)
- be an arrogant ass in PUGS
- be an arrogant ass in Guild
- be an arrogant ass anywhere -- there are people on the server that can kill you. (It may take ten of them, but they'll get you down.)
- come to raids without Pots, water and food (the ones that give you buffs)
- keep epic (or really nice blues) un-enchanted, you are doing yourself and your group a major disservice
- put up with BS from your friends and guildies. At the very worst, you can always move to another server and make new friends (assuming you are not an arrogant ass)
- go into an instance ignorant. Before entering anywhere new go to wowwiki or bosskillers and learn a little bit.
- make the game not fun anymore -- if that happens take a break.
- Don't (on the stairs leading to Moroes in Karazhan) send your pet wildly after party guests, only to return having aggroed the entire ballroom. (Yes I did AGAIN last night -- that would be the fifth time... in my defense though I assisted the tank and he changed targets)
So, fifty posts later I thank you for your interest!
