Liiiiiink Roundups is the place for me….

16 Jul
Misha rides a kodo, using a lasso to roundup links

Yeehaw! It’s a link roundup! (This is still a WIP, though now that I’ve posted it, I’m likely never to finish it!)

Welcome to another edition of Link Roundup, where I, Mishaweha, walk you through posts I found interesting 2+weeks ago and have finally found the time to format and post them for your reviewing pleasure, in case you missed them. (Really, I don’t understand how the rest of you manage your awesome posting schedules!)

This latest entry for Link Roundup was, in part, inspired by Google Reader shutting down, which forced me to start anew elsewhere. I had taken a look at commafeed, but when Feedly finally showed me their cloud version, I was hooked. (Amusingly, my husband also started using Feedly independently.) It seemed like the perfect time to get back into reading WoW blogs on the regular! (Too bad I’m already behind).

Anyway, the topics for today’s link roundup include: WoW – Lighter Side, WoW – Moar Serious, Other Games, and Transmogs. Because I love me some transmogs, even if my grand outfit plans have barely come to fruition.

WoW – Lighter Side

Want to feel rich every time you sell something on the AH? Power Word: Gold points out the addon for you!

The Lion Guard, responding to the community blog topic, states Humans as their favorite race. Fah! Tauren are clearly superior. (And yes, a Tauren is my main… and I have lots and lots of Tauren alts. Femtaurs ftw).

Tzufit talks about her Mom playing WoW; a good read for those interested in seeing something from a new player’s perspective.

Tome of the Ancient has a chain-smoking Death Knight. Yeah, you should go read that post.

WoW – Moar Serious

Life In Group 5 has a nice analysis of how healing is coming along in this post: Status Check: The Healing Game as of 5.3.

The Grumpy Elf has an epically long post with thoughts on LFR (and whether Flex raiding will end it), CRZ & Virtual Realms, and random grouping in general.

Alt:ernative talks about server communities and if there is any hope for them existing again, what with those virtual servers looming in the distance.

An interesting post at The Daily Frostwolf continuing discussion on women in WoW. (I know a lot of other people wrote about this too: You can find some linked in The Daily Frostwolf, and I’m sure you’ve seen even more).

The Grumpy Elf also talks about how people are feeling ‘the end of expansion blues’ already… or is it something else? (Something that I am currently feeling, I think. I agree with this post wholeheartedly).

At Tree Heals Go Woosh, Tzufit muses on why the Battlefield: Barrens is not the most exciting battlefield out there. I tend to agree — I was all gungho the first 3 weeks, and now suddenly I don’t have the time/interest to head out there and kill bosses. Least I got my pet.

In An Age talks about why, in this day and age, warriors still need to have shields to do a Shield Bash. Or rather, why they won’t anymore.

Other Games

Tales of the Aggronaut talks about Rift and how you should play it (I’ll play it with you!), along with how consoles — specifically their graphics and gamplay — used to have an advantage over PC gaming. And then starts a series on how to Rift, starting with character creation!

In An Age gives us impressions of the Firefall Beta. Seems interesting, but I already have lots of game on my plate! (Plus, I’m still keeping an eye out for Wildstar beta invites. *stare* )

Transmogs

Phixuscarus‘ transmogs! I love the rogue! :3

Klym on Ravencrest certainly has a striking transmog, as pulled by Transmog Fashion.

And the WoW Fashion Police have found this stunning number in black. Along with this awesome transmog, with a goblin lady model to boot!

Shorts? There are shorts! Cool!

Someone else is wearing Mandlebrot’s number – the Ancestral Woolie! (Well, at least something sharing the same model.) And they’re making it look good, too. (Coincidence that this one is a blood elf guy too? I think not.)

This pose with this outfit is awesome, right? I thought so. (But for a minute I thought she was a DK wearing this – sorry!)

You do not mess with the lady in blue holding a scythe.

And I think that’s all for this roundup! See you again in a month (or two). >_>

Happy Holidays!

26 Dec

Happy Holidays from me to you! And Mandlebrot wishes you well too. Isn’t that right?

“I’m not going out in this.”

Aw, come on. I went through all that effort to get you dressed up!

“You made me walk across Orgrimmar and open some presents.”

And now you don’t want to show off your present to all the nice people out here? What kind of Christm— I mean, Winterveil spirit is that?

“A sensible one.”

Oh my, whatever will Xaviera say when she hears you didn’t want to cooperate?

Sigh. Fine.”

"Happy Winterveil..."

Now that’s the spirit!

“Can you please get me some pants?”

What’s wrong with the ones you have?

“…”

They have good stats for your level.

“….”

And you have such fine, manly legs.

“Tuxedo pants aren’t that hard to get.”

But they have no stats!

“But… But I just sell auctions….”

And?

“… Sigh. Could I at least wear the tabard again?”

I guess. But you got to say the line again, with more vigor!

"Thank you! Happy Winterveil!"

Time for a little change…

9 Oct

For ages my character login screen on Ysera has looked like this:

Ysera Character List

That's right; I'm too tall for the screen with that helm on.

Mishaweha, Milthete, Mamisha, Methril, Moisha, Maiheela, Mistreaver, Marlenn, Mourninglory, and Mandlebrot. That’s how it’s looked like for quite some time. (Can you find the theme?!)

I’ve even left it like that even after they implemented the ability to move characters around, most likely because I am lazy.

And I’ve had few complaints about my character creation order either. It used to go in a pattern for races: Tauren, Undead, Tauren, Blood Elf, repeat. Though now that order has been broken when I race changed my Undead Priest, Maiheela,  into a Tauren named Minnetrista; not to mention my last toon, a token male Blood Elf,  had already broken the pattern by not being undead.

Since the pattern is broken (or just because), I’ve decided to shift their order. Back to a simpler time, when they used to be in order by level.

And so I present to you… the new character selection page!

Misha's helm is hidden for a reason.

The "new" selection screen, ordered by level! Mishaweha, Mourninglory, Mamisha, Moisha, Milthete, Methril, Minnetrista, Marlenn, Mistreaver, and Mandlebrot

Once again order triumphs over chaos.

Let’s see how long it takes before my resolve breaks and I change it back.

Shattering Changes

24 Nov

A lot has changed with The Shattering, but since I’m busy writing my NaNoWriMo novel (or selling glyphs >.>), I leave you with this single, shattering change in one character’s life.

My bank alt before The Shattering:

 

Mandlebrot poses in his Barbaric Loincloth

"No one ever gave me pants. T_T"

My bank alt after The Shattering:

 

Mandlebrot poses in the Silvermoon City tabard

"PRAISE BE TO THE LIGHT! I AM MORE CLOTHED!"

I think he’s happy to finally have that Barbaric Loincloth covered with a smexy red Tabard instead of ‘bar-baring all’.

*dodges tomatoes*
