I wanted full body shots in different poses for the character profile pages I have up, so made new images. I wound up not using shoulders for most, because my ModelViewer sometimes does strange things – and at the time I was fiddling with these, shoulders were showing up Tauren-sized on everybody. I didn’t think it looked too bad on Thermalix, given the pose I went with, but for everybody else? It just looked dumb.
I’m also taking a moment to sit down and make a kinda sorta plan for what I intend to do with the dramatis personae come Pandaland.
Quote: “Wanna purchase a Rocket Camel? It’s totally legal on all four continents although some faction exceptions may apply!”
Will She Survive Pandas: Yes. She doesn’t care about pandas, unlesssss she can put a rocket or two on them and see how aerodynamically they behave when launched. Don’t worry, she’ll make sure there’s a trampoline they can land on. What? It’s perfectly safe.
Future Plans: As my primary melee DPS, Mech will likely be among the first of my gals to make it to 90, for those times when things need to be smashed. I am certain that there will be smashing times ahead.
Quote: “I soooo did not mean to shoot that.”
Will She Survive Pandas: Hell yes, ain’t no panda nowhere gonna take her down no way no how! Also, ENORMOUS ROCKET MOUNT MUST HAVE.
Future: Thermalix is the only one who has clear goals for the expansion. She will probably be the first to make it to 90, as my inner hunter pet collector will kick in (again) and I will need to tame a Purple Armored Stone Quilen, and a White Porcupine, and a Goat of some color, and a Green Fen Strider (or maybe a white one!), and a Black Crane, and a Raven, and a Ghost Saber Worg, and and and! Yay!
There are only two depressing things for Thermalix in this: you can’t tame color changers any more (thank God she got her color changing scarab already), and she really, really wishes they’d increase the stable space to allow for more pets. Thermalix is going to have to let some of her darlings go, and that’s always a tough call.
Quote: “The sky is falling! The sky is falling!”
Will She Survive Pandas: Yes, providing no panda hits her. If one does, she’s probably going to get one-shotted.
Future: She will inch towards the new level limit (providing she ever reaches the old one), forced to do so by her fondness for leveling tailoring in order to get rid of all the fabric scraps she hoards. When her bank is full, it’s time to level tailoring. When she can’t level tailoring, it’s time to level herself. While dungeoning, she’ll pick up more fabric. It is an endless cycle.
Quote: “I’ll just spend this whole pug pickpocketing. I’m sure you don’t mind.”
Will She Survive Pandas: Yes. I want my own lockbox opener, dammit. Also, she only has one transmog outfit to her name, and that’s just friggin’ sad.
Future: She will be forced to level so that she can open up the high level lockboxes the others keep sending to her. They’re really starting to stack up! As my only leather wearer, she’s also going to have to level so she can represent.
Quote: “No tanks! No tank you.”
Will She Survive Pandas: Maybe.
Future: I’ve been debating deleting Thingie, and I’ve been debating making her a monk once Mists comes. So far, her saving grace against both these fates has been her current ability to dual wield Shovels of Mercy. If the human and the orc in that video had Shovels of Mercy, that panda would’ve had a far tougher time. There will be no tanking for Thingie, so I foresee a lifetime of long queues, which is kind of depressing.
Quote: “I’m having an issue with some yetis. Can I call you back?”
Will She Survive Pandas: I don’t know. In fact, I don’t know what happened with playing a shaman. It was fun, once, but now I just don’t know what I’m doing.
Future: Majig’s future is as tenuous as her sister Thingie’s. Maybe I’ll play her for a little while with this new talent system and see how I feel about the shaman class, but as of late it’s been mostly indifference.
Quote: “There are some ghosts who can never go home.”
Will She Survive Pandas: The question really ought to be, “Will pandas survive meeting Ailabeth?”
Future: Ailabeth will probably be the second to make it to 90, as I enjoy Levitate, Leap of Faith and Shadowform far too much. Her goal is, more or less, to kill the sheeyit out of things and take their stuff and gold for transmog purposes.
Quote: “I can only go forward from here.”
Will She Survive Pandas: Yes, although she’s a very long way from ever getting to Pandaland itself.
Future: SAVING THE WORLD. Handing a huge catfish to King Chin (or possibly slapping him with it. Is she in a protadin or a retadin mood?). Daydreaming about marrying him, and using the combined power of the Church and Stormwind’s military to reclaim/make useful again Elwynn and Westfall. Would insist on being generous with former Defias who agree to take an oath of loyalty and would put pretty much every person ever to work repairing or replacing infrastructure in Westfall because Being Nice and Doing Good Works is all for the Light. Retaking Stromgarde Keep, because seriously, guys, after Lich King + Deathwing + Serious High Level Stuff, you’re really letting some lowbie rogues and ogres sit there and hold it? The Horde will take it if you don’t do something! Nir wants to do something!
