The Liebster Award

I got this challenge from Rinike on twitter yesterday, and I must admit that I had no idea what it was at first. I headed to Rin's blog and read about it there, but I think it sounds very cool -so thank you, "Ygritte" aka Rinike! :D

If you dont know what Liebster award is either, here is a quote from Rinike who quoted Neri who quoted Geekphoria :

“Well, it is only an AWESOME award given to up and coming bloggers. Given by other up and coming bloggers. It’s a cool way to find other blogs and feel like you are getting into the blogging stratosphere. It is simple, you get nominated by someone else, mention their page and a link to their blog in your Liebster Award Post, answer the 11 questions they give you, then tag 11 other nominees and give them a new set of 11 questions to answer.”

And here are her questions!

1. When and why you started blogging?

I started blogging very recently! I had considered it for some time, after Mr & Mrs WoW suggested it one day in guildchat, and after some thought I gave it a go. Still consider myself the biggest nub regarding blogging :)

2. If you would be stuck in an elevator and could pick any person (alive, dead or fiction) to be with you, who would it be?

Hmm.. hard question. Oh wait.. Jon Snow :D

3. What do you listen while playing?

That vary a bit. Most often I just have the ingame music, but I also tend to put on music from the Hobbit-movies quite often 

4. What is your fandom (if any)?

I love the Diablo stories! If that count? :) 

5. What colour is your toothbrush?

Its epic colored! :D

6. If you would have to choose, what animal you would be?

I struggle a bit on that one.. it stands between a dog and a cat. Cat because they are lazy and spoiled, dogs because they are so adorable and love you exactly the way you are  :)

7. Would you rather go about your normal day naked or have smelly breath and body odor for the whole day?

If home all day and not going out: naked. I dislike smelly people, inc. myself! :D

8. What was your first computer/console game?

Super-Mario Bros. If that count? :) If not, then it is World of Warcraft

9. PC or console?


10. What in-game (from any game) feature you would like to have in RL?

Easy one! Portals! :D

11. Are you casual or hardcore gamer?

I dont know, I see myself as a mix of the two, I raid pretty high level, but most of the week I am just casually leveling alts/playing other games and slacking. 

I don't really have that many blogs that I follow, but I will challenge the ones I read regularly (taking Rinike of the list :)):

@ReliqEU -
@AlternativeChat  - 
@MrandMrsWoW -
@Laeleiweyn -
@MissSalvira -
@Sivation -
@HealbotAtHeart -

And my questions are as follows:

1. When and why did you start to blog?
2. What are you looking for in other peoples blogs? 
3. Twitter or Facebook?
4. What games are you playing?
5. What do you do for fun when you are not playing games on the computer/console?
6. What is your favorite TV-series?
7. Horde or alliance, and why? 
8. If you could go anywhere on holiday, where would you go, and why? 
9. What is your favorite food?
10. What is your favorite old-school event/instance? (Opening of AQ-gates, outdoor bosses etc)
11. If you could meet a person of choice from Blizzard -who would it be? And what would you ask him/her?

The Priest list

So, I had to check what do I have and what don't I have of priests on various servers that I plan to use for my insanity-quest of leveling all the different priest-races, at least once. :-)

Under will I have listed the different priest I already have. I did not include the level 80 priest that I have on Tarren Mill because I simply refuse to level on a pvp server. :P

Already created and at various levels:
Human - Class (lvl 90)
N.elf - Zoss (lvl 90)
Undead - Vandela (lvl 90)
Worgen- Vanera ( lvl 88)
Blood Elf - Vanera (lvl 87 iirc)
Draenei - Coor  (lvl 85)
Troll - Tsiia (lvl 83)
Gnome -Asusi (lvl 30)


For the new priests, I will take professions that will help me level quicker, like herbalism and mining (gives xp-bonuses). And ofc it will boost my economy! :) 

Also, yay managed to make a short blog post today! \o/

The first one

My first priestling is the one I am (still) playing as main charcter - Class. She started out as a night elf and just recently (couple of weeks ago) got race-changed to human. 

This is how she used to look when she was a night elf, proud in her Benediction and Tier 2 set: 

And here is a shot of her as human, in the challengemode set (I love that set!):
I started a priest because when I was playing the game on my rogue (yes, I know, the first character I made was a ROGUE! :D)  and wanted to do instances, getting healers was a royal pain in the ass, so I decided that I wanted to make one and see "how hard can this be?!" At first it was crazy hard, because someone said that "you don't need a healing spec to heal instances". So I healed them as shadow. Back then it was no "dual spec" but pricey spec-changes. And you did squat dps as a healer, so the healing spec was pretty useless for anything but instances and/or raids. 

So, annoyed that it felt that hard to heal, I decided that I would "finish" questing on her and then change to healer-spec, to see if it was better to heal in that spec. Oh boy it was different!

And I fell in love -with healing... <3 

That first instance as "disc" (aka spirit buff spec)... it was like a whole new world compared to healing as shadow, and after that Class stayed disc for doing instances. At that time I mained a mage in my guild, and I took Class to alt-runs that was organized on saturdays by the guild in cooperation with a few other guilds on the server. Quickly the officers of my guild saw the potential in me also as a healer, and I was asked to re-roll to priest as main (various reasons lead up to this question, I wont go into details here). After debating with myself, I decided to take them up on their offer and swapped main from mage to priest. Best decision ever!

During the expansions WoLK and Cataclysm I changed main to shaman as main character (also healer, + raided both on horde and alliance side) but I kept Class close as most favorite character still. I just needed to experience other classes in raiding and it was enjoyable to do something different. I still took Class to alt runs and such. 

MoP came close, and I was planing to level Class first and re-take her as my main again. But I had recently rejoined my old guild from back when Class became my main so many years ago. The GM and raidleader at the time asked if I would consider leveling up a Mistweaver Monk for the raidteam. He know I can play multiple healingclasses, which I believe was one of the reasons for asking, another reason was that the team already had 2 priests and 2 (resto) shamans so adding one more of either was a bit overkill.

This made me re-think what to have as main in MoP, but after some consideration, I decided to take him up on his offer, and level up a monk and make it my main the coming expansion. After reading up on it, I got a bit in doubt -melee style is def. not my playstyle (I really suck at melee, like.. really really bad). When taking this up with the GM he said that if it didn't work out, I was free to go back to any char I wanted. That made it easier and I raided on the monk for all tiers up-to and inc. our first Garrosh kill. Maining a monk was fun, but I felt I played it the "wrong way" (never in melee, only at ranged casting) and I missed Class horribly. 

I decided to take it up with the current raidteam leader, and he said "sure, lets swap you, its no problem. Just come on monk till you get some gear on the priest". 

And the circle comes to an end. My first healing love, is now my main again. Closing in on 9 years with that gal. I think we are gonna grow old together... <3

The newest, craziest idea -this year...

So, ever since I got ill this past January, I have put myself up to hairy goals to have something "to do" in game, so I wouldn't go mad from being home alone with the cat. 

First goal was to get the white raptor from Isle of Giants, with involved farming of 9999 dinosaur-bones. And like that was not enough, I also decided to get the "Hero of Shattrath" achievement that I started on quite a lot of years ago but never completed.

A lot of bones and basilisk-eyes later, I have both. So I needed a new goal. Since I started working again -30% for now- I decided that the grinding period is over. If I never see a basilisk eye again, its too soon, to put it that way :P

So the last days I have been thinking about something different -not at all less time consuming, but its not the grinding feeling I had when killing all those basilisks in Terokkar forest.

So here goes - you will probably think that "that's it, she have lost her mind"... I have been thinking of leveling a priest for every available race. Yes, that is A LOT OF PRIESTS! I do -however- reserve the right to race-change the ones I have more then one of (yes yes, I partly lost my mind a while ago..) so I start out a tad better then having to level all. 

That mean I have some already, but the ones I would have to do from scratch are: Goblin, Tauren, Dwarf and Panda. The others races I have in various levels around on different servers. Still, this is gonna take time. Good I absolutely love to level priests, eh? ^^

So, that's my crazy monday!
