Exalted

I’ve been running with the guild called “Exalted” this week doing some basic Naxx 10m and made some quick friendships in doing so. So much so they invited Wootbeer to join them- talking with my guildies last night and letting them know I wasn’t abandoning them– who does that anyways??? *chuckle*– I became a member. The guild itself is where I’d like OS to be in a few months provided we have people motivated in doing so: casual raids, learning strats, being patient with one an another, slow and low. Apparently 50% of the guild all know each other in real life, that helps to keep things in perspective and in this case, knowing eachother leads to common goals.

They seem to be taking instances with a mind set of fail first, which is understandable if you’ve never been but after witnessing the Spider Wing take down in just over 1 hr with 1 wipe I’d say they are ready for the rest of the instance. I may be going 2 step backwards for gear and instancing for Wootbeer but it’s not about progression for me per se but moreover the experiences I have with people. I was laughing it up last night ini vent and had a genuine good time. Time.

We added another 2 members last night with my spamming in trade chat. It’s always a hit or miss if they stay around. We shall see.

*Salutations!*

Patience isn’t a virtue part 1.

Patience is learned and if your lucky you inherit it from one or both parents. I don’t know about ‘virtue’ since I relate virtue with one’s morals. Morals don’t come into play when you are dealing with a 13 year old WoW player. Patience does. In my years of gaming there are some very solid foundations that remain true to this day, of course there are always exceptions. One of the basics is that a young teen ages 12-16 tend to be erratic, blunt, combustible, waffling and have a serious attention deficit disorder. I get that, I do…not that I wasn’t any of those at 13…let’s see…I was erratic, check. I wasn’t blunt, I wasn’t combustible and I didn’t waffle…so basically erratic. Anyways, when you have teens in your guild you have to adjust your patience level somewhat as well as your love for the game.

I thought I’d offer some tips on how to deal with teenagers.  We need to break them down into some categories and subcategories as not all teens are created equal as I’ve met a good amount of quality teens who were not only respectful but insightful and well meaning. I will preface this that I’m a bit of an ‘ageist’ in that I prefer to run with older players…meaning over the age of 18….

Your first teen player is the complete Noob/Newb/New player who was talked into playing WoW or an MMO and has no clue what he/she is doing. They will ask a ton of questions while also being very random and the most irritating trait of this type if they don’t answer back to you for a very long time. This is where the AD&D comes into play. It would go a lot like this.

“Tarbog” DK (the noob) “Anyone know where the Auction House is in Dalaran?????????<— notice the usage of 10+ exclamation marks…

“StaxRipa” seasoned WoW player Mage ” Dalaran doesn’t have one.”

T – What!?!?!?!??!?!?!?!  Really???????

S – Yes, really.

T- Yes as in they DO have an auction house????? Or NO!???  WTF!??!?!!!!! HELP ME!!!!!!  Hey anyone run me thru Nexus real quik?!!!!?!!!!????

S- Dalaran doesn’t have a AH go to one of the Capital Cities.

T- Anyonehave spar(e) gold I can borrw?????!  Wait…??? What’s a “AH”???????

you get the jist and you’ve seen it. The way to deal with these types is to whisper them or group up with them so you don’t clog the guild chat channel with blabber that no one really wants to read. Once you have them in your group explain to them that there is no real need to put “!!??!!?!?!?” at the end of questions. Tell them that if they continue to do so, they run the risk of being labeled an asshole player…but also let them know it might be too late and they need to make social amends in chat. Now, depending on the maturity of the kid he/she will do …fuck that..girls don’t act that way……depending on the maturity of the BOY he will tell you to fuck off, agree and lower his tone of online voice or agree then still continue with his albeit innocent tirades when you are not online. You will then log on and hear about it from other guildies. It’s important to NIP these types ASAP as they will spread to the other players who are only THINKING of acting this way and are waiting for an opening. Domino’s.

It’s FRIDAY!!!

I’m really liking our mini-core group in the guild right now. It harkons back to the original crews. Friendly, talkative, older, mature and pretty much everyone is enjoying themselves. We also have more females to males ratio currently. Now, I’m sure to be poached. =D

I’ve been playing my Pally all week doing the Halloween Trick or Treats visting the INNS and inbetween doing Alterac Valley. It too me a mere 2 hours to go 1.5 levels which equated to 2 levels. I hit 58 last night, not bad considering I was 55 on Monday plus I’m racking up 3 faction reps like nobody’s business. Basically, at my level 2 AV’s equal ONE level depending on the duration, obviously turtles are counter productive but I’ve never seen Ally do so well in AV. It’s also very fun in AV again. I predict I’ll be lower 60’s by Sunday. I also have help with future Outland runs with some of the guildies.

I still need to figure out a good spec for my Pally, and will probably buy the dual spec when I hit 60. I thought my toon was Ret spec but after forgetting to point up – realized I had 7 points waiting for me noticed that I’m Holy Spec…who knew. lol  My gear is also 60% decent in that it’s hybrid for both SP and DPS/Heals. More PvP and I can at least fill in the DPS part with Wootbeer & Co. doing the PvE set.

For those who have level 50’s you really ought to be doing the Trick or Treat Travel quests at the Inns where you pick up the candy, one gets between 4k-6k PER Inn which is around 1 Bar per stop plus you get the exploration badges. Try it and you will see yourself level in no time.

See everyone this weekend !

Hallowed Be Thy Name

Took a year..but ONE quest and voila AutumnKnight has the Halloween title. Good timing on my part as I flew into Southshore there was  Horde planting ‘stinkbombs’, after I killed the two Horde and Teabagged em I was able to do the quest. ! Then headed to the SM for a HH run took a while since we don’t have any more tanks in the guild, LOL. However, I spammed from within UC and got ourselves a <MURDER> tank and finished up in lickitysplit! No mount or pet but got the 80 ring. Was too tired to run Wootbeer through as I was grouped up with a new guildy and we were doing the Trick or Treats of Kalimdor and got all but 1 (for me) before the pillow was calling my name.

I also took my stab at PvPing with my Paladin. I asked a couple experts and they both said the same which kinda took me by surprise. Spam 2 buttons. That’s it. No wonder why it’s hard to kill something like a Paladin when they only need to worry about 2 buttons. I used 4 but whose counting. My paladin is only 55 but is geared with 3 pieces of Heirlooms so he’s not that bad. Ret paladin– I made some good kills and racked up the points and achievenments in no time. Was fun! I did notice most tried to ‘avoid’ direct confrontation on the bg field vs. when I’m with Wootbeer or AK. I’ll get better.

We seem*** knock on wood*** and *not get poached*- to have a small core group now, most of whom are in there 35-40’s with families. Added 2 more this weekend and they stayed longer than 3 hours. lol  Much thanks to the guild for recruiting the right players and having patience. It’s def. a rebuilding but I believe worth my time and efforts- and seems for those who play in our guild – worth their time as well. We also had 2 lowbie’s hit 80!

Below are some ‘vintage’ costumes some of you may recognize…

Short, Fat and wears gay looking glasses.

Tall & Lean, Curvy & Sexy, Gordo y Flaca. All shapes and size along with all  motives and aspirations. In the world of warcraft which I’ve invested ample amount of precious life too, I’ve seen a lot. Experienced a lot. Heard a lot. I still love this game, just not as much. Not sure if it’s the game itself as a whole or the people. You cannot have one without the other influencing your ingame experiences.

I would like to have a MMO where it’s more individual based vs. cookie cutter. This won’t be a rant about the shortcomings of WoW but rather what “A” MMO could be like. Since WoW pretty much copied the best elements of other games before it then became it’s vanguard it’s still lacking creativity. The only nuances that sep. us from other toons besides gear is our talent tree & glyphs…but even those have a finite variances if your looking for the ‘best build’.

I noticed the other night playing EVE that you can, with enough time invested be very alternative and individualistic in your game play and interacting with your environment. This same concept was at the heart of Star Wars Galaxies. If WoW could somehow drop the excess amount of cookie cutter gear and had actual Black Smiths make unique and specialized Armor or Weapons that in itself would change the game. Pipe dream, yes. I’m just jonesin for something that can take my long hours collectively and apply them to something that is uniquely ME.

————————————

So very close to rep cap with Argent and ample gold to back up the personal COS runs. Guild added 1 more to the group, Colleen is inching near 80! Err..”Neeloc”. /Proud

/Salute Samandible from Death Minions!

lol

And below are some Friday Fun since I’m sooooo cool and thoughtful.

Drake Lately

That title “Drake Lately” reminds me of one of  my favoritre comedians, Chelsea Handler of her own show “Chelsea Lately”. She has a 1/2 hr show where she basically reads headlines with up and coming and not so up and coming comedians and they add lib. I like her because she doesn’t mince words. She admits her faults and shortcomings while still being funny in the process. People who take themselves too seriously bore me. Hence, she doesn’t bore. Well after being the ultimate lazy rep gather’err I got exalted with the Wyrmrest Accord a couple days ago and AK now has her mount. She also got the BONE fishing pole for the daily. I’m attempting to knock out some easy Achievements but they take time: Cooking for the “Chef” title, Fishing for the “Salty” title and wanting to get the ‘Gemmed Pole’ to add to my collection. I still need the Rumsey recipe too. Tons to do.

I had to put in a ticket lastnight for the cooking line for the Northrend Recipes. Apparently, as it was verified in a Blizzard follow up email, the ‘ShovelTusk Soup’ is currently bugged. I checked over and over again and saw I did do the quest back in December but never got the actual recipe. I need that to complete that line. After that I will be done with it…

We added 4 more people last night to the guild, some old faces and some new. Also had another hit 80. He was a happy camper. We also did a VH run for those in the upper 70’s and I was able to gauge how they play and they all seemed competent enough even though Yuert was DPSing and I was tanking…lol We make up for alot of mistakes.

I’m on my 11th solo run of Scholomance for the mount. Yes, I know what all  3 of you are thinking, “OMG, you’ll never get that mount let alone soloing it without being bored!” Well..maybe so…..but I’m stubborn like that. I also tend to make some decent gold and greens that DE into some good gold. My runs paid for half of what I spent on the Drake (800 gold). Plus…Runecloth drops like mad and it sells very quickly. Going again tonight if it’s not too late.

Oh and Obama, gratz on something you didn’t deserve.
