A small update.

Why hello, blogosphere! *crickets chirp* Between the dreaded Real Life World Boss breathing down my neck and readying Aesadonna to jump back into Killing Interweb Dargonz I have been rather busy, so I ended up sorely neglecting this little space of interwebz again.

Though, I finally finished the Best in Slot gear list for DW Frost DK’s because I love you all.*throws confetti* You can find that here, or under the sub-header Death Knight-y Things.

The 2h Frost list is next on my agenda and it will be available Soon™.

Feel free to let me know if I have made any errors and I will correct them as soon as possible. 🙂

Here is a photo montage of some of the shenanigans that Aesa has been up to since I have posted last, since screen shots remain an obsession.  Read more of this post

Casual is not a dirty word.

For the first time since I joined Undying Resolution over a year ago, I am no longer part of the core raiding team. Until mid-January, I am fulfilling a transient fill-in-the-gap-in-the-raiding-roster role. After that, I am officially one of the guild’s casual members.

I have been a denizen of Azeroth for the past seven years and always held the opinion that raiding is the pinnacle of the WoW experience. Almost six of those years were spent vying for shiny purples with very little consideration or care for the people who accompanied me. Guilds were expendable; only the gearing of myself and Beefbus meant something to me. It shames me to admit that until Cataclysm, I thought casual was a dirty word — one attributed to people who I thought had no business playing the game. *hangs head* Leaving behind a class I knew inside out was the best serving of WoW-flavoured humble pie: no player is greater or lesser than the other for choosing a different path and it was never my place to judge.

It is strange to think that each Wednesday and Thursday evening will be dedicated to academia rather than pwning internet dargons with the individuals I have come to know as friends. But, I have learned that the most important thing was never the replaceable gear, but the laughter shared and memories gained. [/cheesy]

Consider this post my official explanation of blog quietness as well! As someone whose raiding days are currently numbered, creating gear lists has not been of the utmost importance to me. Alas, I will shove that selfish attitude aside and get crackin’ after my final exams next week. 🙂

And because no post of mine is complete without screen shots, here is three:

Beefbus bought me a Cinder Kitten! I named her after one of my heroes, Commander Shepard.
(My WoW BFF, Amowrath, was afflicted by Hurricane Sandy so there was no way that we were going to pass up this little cutie.)
