Couples Who Slay Together – Rinike & Cepheus

Welcome to our Community Project of 2017 (you can see our last one in 2014 here)!

We propose to do a series of – fun and lightearted – interviews which help us learn a bit more about our awesome community, and hopefully unravel some juicy details about our readers. 

If you would like to get involved, contact us.

I’m so pleased we managed to get you guys to interview because I think you were some of our first followers! Can you introduce yourselves?

Hey I’m Rinike, catgirl from Eorzea, in Azeroth some might know me as
a Worgen Druid.

Hiya! I’m Joey, but I usually go by my nerd name Cepheus on the internet.

Could you share a pic of you together – either IRL or in game, we don’t mind!

You know how when you chat with people and form and picture in your mind? You guys totally smash my mental picture!!! Love this more though, gorgeous.

How long have you been together and where did you meet?
We’ve been together almost 5 years. We’re acquaintances from the same guild in Vanilla but not until later we started talking and well here we are, married πŸ˜€

Show us a picture of your setup – do you have a cute couple thing going on, all cosy?

Space is an issue. We don’t have couple gaming space, but we both have our own nerdlairs πŸ™‚

So, do you tend to play the same games together or prefer to keep gaming life separate?

Rinike: We play together and separate. I prefer to do things alone as I’m more into story and exploring side of the games πŸ™‚
Currently though we have a new project in FFXIV where we are playing
the story together.
Cepheus: I love playing with her, but our interests sometimes differ. In WoW for example, I like PvP, which she doesn’t. We do try to do things together as well though. It’s a great feeling to be able to share a big interest like games with her. 

With the current political situation it’s only right we ask your affiliation: HORDE OR ALLIANCE?

Rinike: FOR THE HORDE! But I’m currently more on Alliance because most
of my friends are on the ‘wrong’ side πŸ˜‰

Cepheus: I tend to play where my friends play, since I don’t want to be stuck somewhere all by myself. This means I’m usually playing both factions. However, if I had to choose, I will always choose Horde.

Spill the beans: what’s the most fun activity you like to do together?
GAMING ACTIVITY… naughty! πŸ˜‰

Old dungeons / content is always fun πŸ™‚

As a couple, do you find sharing your gaming hobby helps your relationship?

Rinike: It does and as Warcraft is how we found each other? it makes it a little bit more special πŸ™‚
Cepheus: Absolutely, gaming is a big part of our relationship. If only
one of us had that interest then I think it’d be more of a problem. We
both understand and respect each others need to play games.

*ahem* who rides who on the two seater mount?

That depends, we take turns πŸ˜€ (but in-game only Cepheus has two seater mount!)

Who is the raid leader in your relationship?!

Rinike: I’d have to say me, I’m quite bossy πŸ˜€

Cepheus: We’re more like the tanks in a raid, she’s the main tank, I’m
the off tank. We compliment each other well and can’t really do
without the other. But she’s more of a leader than I am πŸ™‚

What’s been the biggest, how can I say this… marital dispute…
whilst gaming together?

Well, I (Rinike) tend to get quite competitive and I’m a sore loser so
I want things done in a certain way and it sometimes comes out as not
in so good way πŸ˜€

One of you has to kill 100 kobolds and one has to collect the 100 shiny beads they drop… who does which task and why?

Cepheus has that slaying down, I always have to remind him to loot the
corpses πŸ˜€

Where do you see your future in gaming?

Hopefully still going strong. Our dream is to go to Blizzcon one year
(let’s hope they still organize it when we get to do that :D) Us too, it’ll take a while though…!!

Ok, the million pound question. You’re farming a rare mount. Neither
of you has it. It drops. Who gets it?!!

We both would probably roll on it, but Cepheus would give it to me
as he is nice like that πŸ˜€

Cepheus: As much as I love games, she’ll always come first. A cool mount is nice, but making her smile is worth so much more. Awwww!!

Feel free to add twitter/facebook/blog bios below!
@LadyRinike (main Twitter), All things Blizzard @DruidRinike and @Cepheus is my blog but currently I haven’t written much about games
but the plan is to start writing again.
