Healing and Transmog in World of Warcraft
So, my efforts to get the rafflecopter widget to work were in vain. Oy. Now I know for next time. So, I entered everyone into Random.org as a list (in the order you commented, 1 entry per person), and hit the randomize button!
And, the person at the top of the list (in the number one spot…) is…
I will @ you on twitter and buy you the pet of your choice tomorrow. Just have an email ready so I can send it as a gift!
Howdy y’all! So I wanted a little something to get me writing again now that I’m all married and the stress level has gone down dramatically. So, I have decided to give away a pet! This includes your choice of one of the $10 pets from the Blizzard store (Pet Store). Once you have selected your pet, I will gift the pet to you via email so you will need 1) a working copy of WoW and 2) a working email! Drawing will be via rafflecopter (which I am excited to use!)
For this giveaway, I would like to know: Where in the World of Warcraft is your favorite place to relax?
Please leave your twitter name or a way to contact you with your comment! (so I can verify that you are you!)
Comment below with your answer and I look forward to reading everyone’s responses! I will pick a winner on Monday, September 22, 2014!
So I’ve been really inactive y’all because I got married. Now it’s all calmed down and hopefully I can get back to blogging!
Sometimes it’s fun to pick up a new identity when your old one no longer makes you happy. As such, I have moved from classyplayswow.wordpress.com over to here, prettylittlepally.wordpress.com , because it makes me feel more cheerful and eager to write about the adventures of playing a blood elf paladin. I also threw in a shot of my new phoenix!
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.
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:
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 🙂
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.
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.
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!
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!
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.
