Hunter Appreciation Week: TAME ALL THE THINGS

Ah, hunters.

I Fear for the Ponies

I Fear for the Ponies

Once upon a time, after Deathwing got bored with destroying the world in general and took to hanging out in raids instead, a troll by the name of Versebelg came to be.  She had no heirlooms, no clue and no distinction of any sort.  Still, she understood mining and shooting things in the face, so all was well.

Versebelg actually did stuff like completing quest zones, since it took some time before she realized you didn’t actually have to finish one zone’s quest line in order to progress to the next.  She never used that thing called LFD until she was in the 80s and desperate to get out of Deepholm.  She was my first to ding 85, o proud day!

But once she discovered the magic of transmog, Versebelg felt deeply dissatisfied with the way her troll toes always hid her shoes.  Unhappily, she also realized the creepy similarity between her face and that of every other female troll she had ever met.  In this dark moment, A WILD THERMALIX APPEARED.  Named for the “therm” in things like thermometers, thermodynamics, thermonuclear radiation and so on, she stomped into the world intent on taming all the things in all the best outfits.

And crap happened.  Pets were tamed!  Derps were had!  There was much mogging!  Basically, the blog!

On the eve of patch 5.4, Thermalix Spendtrue is at ilevel 506 and stands as my second main, or primary alt if you will.  If I ever decide to go further with the Loremaster or Seeker titles, she’ll be my go-to-gal!  Not only does Therm have a huge head start on quests, but hunters are seriously THE BEST for soloing stuff.  They have a pocket tank that they can heal in addition to some crowd-controlling action for safety, and (of course) they can Feign Death if sheeyit gets outta hand. Ok, so she’s level 90 and the likelihood of things spiraling out of control in Mulgore is kinda low.  But she’s prepared JUST IN CASE!

Of course, hunters love their pets, so Therm was thrilled when Blizzard finally got over their “OMFG WOW IS NOT POKEMONZ” fears and increased stable space!  Therm’s tastes vary between the strange, the flamboyant and the downright adorable.

Think they’ll ever add tamable bunnies to the game?  Yes/no?

Transmoggination Trove Update: “Bluebird” Set

"Bluebird" Transmog Set

“Bluebird” Transmog Set

“Bluebird” Set

Storm Master’s Helmet | Ornate Pauldrons | Antiquated Cloak | Nexus-Strider Breastplate
Nexus-Strider Gloves | Njord Belt | Nexus-Strider Legwraps | Nexus-Strider Greaves

Ironfeather Longbow (not shown) | Nether Trident

Status: Not Finished
To Find: Cryptfiend Slayer (bow)

Thoughts: Mostly Nexus-Strider pieces.  I’m sad to admit that I put this together to match Cerulean (formerly known as Aotona) the blue parrot, seen in part in one of the cropped shots above, hence the daft name.  I trekked out to Shattrath for the express purpose of wasting Justice Points on the Storm Master’s Helmet.  I spent a lot of money on that darn haircut and I don’t intend to stick it under a helmet!  I want to find the Cryptfiend Slayer bow eventually, but it isn’t a high priority.

And that’s it.  I’ve saved some others and deleted the ones I don’t need.  My screenshots folder is a blank slate.  Perhaps Mechalis should release screenshot albums on a quarterly basis?

Oh Sheeyit Screenshots: Posting V

The realization that I screenshotted the exact same scenes on multiple characters is one of the perturbing things about going through a year’s worth of pictures.  For example:

Oh the Goblinity: TWICE

Mech on the left, Verse on the right.

It turns out that I also spent a huge amount of time screenshotting every single different IDEA you get when drinking Kaja-cola. I have so many Kaja-cola Idea screenshots, I don’t know what to do with them.  I have so many of them, I’m not actually going to post a single one of them.  You can thank me later.

And now, for Oh Sheeyit Screenshots: Ye Olde Screenies Edition!

Just to show how old Ye Olde Screenies are, that second to last cropped shot is, shockingly, of Ailabeth.  It was taken April 30th, 2011. Great Scott!
