So, the guy who puts the spaghetti in WTFspaghetti threw a meme my way. I can honestly say that I have not done one of these for quite some time. They were very popular for a while and then seemed to die down a bit. I may as well do it and pass the curse...errrr....privledge to someone else. If you have already been tagged previously by it.....well too fucking bad. This is what the Doctor ordered.
What did you do in the World of Warcraft in 2009 that you'd never done before?
Really, I have been doing a lot of the same stuff that I have always done in WoW. I still pug raids, still pvp, still try to make gold. The biggest new thing I did was try to hit the gold cap. It took quite some time, but I finally did it. I also played in some instance groups that consisted 100 percent of people I know in real life. That is not something that I had done previous to this year. Then there was that wild night with the Night Elf Druid chick, the Dranei Paladin, and the jar of vasoline. Let me tell you, once you go Boomkin, you never go back.
What was your favorite new place that you visited?
In game it would have to be the Eye of Eternity. That instance was very tough when everyone was rocking Naxx gear and there was not pet scaling. It was one of those fights that made you go WHOA when the ground drops out from under you and you are saved by a drake.
What would you like to have in 2010 that you lacked in 2009?
A high ranking arena team maybe? I have really slacked on the arenas this expansion. Also, more boomkin on dwarf action. Giggity.
What was your biggest achievement of the year? What was your biggest failure?
My biggest achivement was getting my wife to start playing WoW. That was tough. She now has a level 80 and we are leveling up a Priest/Hunter combo currently. In real life, getting married was definately the biggest achivement for me.
The biggest failure would be that I havent gotten the wife as hooked on the game as I am. :)
What did you get really, really, really excited about?
It is brand new to the game, but the cross server LFG was practically made for me. If I have an hour, I can easily smash out two instances. It makes it so you can do instances with less waiting around which is what I have always wanted.
What do you wish you'd done less of?
For a while there, I was OBSSESSED with making tons of gold. It was what I wanted to do. Unfortunately it was very boring and took away from the other fun stuff that I really wanted to do . Thankfully I reached the cap and have just barely kept my glyph sales moving.
What was your favorite WoW blog or podcast?
I love tons of blogs including the ones on my blogroll. WTFspagetti, Jong and Meg's Asian Bukkake party, QQcasting, and many more. If they make me laugh, I will certainly be back for another poke.
On the other hand, I don't really listen to podcasts though I have thought of making my own.
Tell us a valuable WoW lesson you learned in 2009.
Having fun with the people you enjoy is the best part of WoW. Do what you enjoy, not what you think you HAVE to do or you will get burnt out. You are not obligated to anyone in this game. If they have a problem with it, tell them to fuck off. You will feel better for it. Also, Swedish Penis pumps do not work ;)
I hereby tag my Vordan the Palatard (aka my sister), Occeleta the Lackofpostaholic, and Fish because he quit WoW without my permission and now I am going to guilt him into continuing to blog about WoW....so there.
