20 Days of Wow – Day 3

Day 03 – Your first day playing WoW

Mrs B ~

I don’t remember much from my first dabble in World of Warcraft – mainly rolling a character and not understanding what I had to do. Mr B started me off and told me to follow the quest guide. I think I got to about level 4 before I decided I was dying too much and it wasn’t fun. I promptly quit and decided I couldn’t be bothered.

My second go was more successful. Mr B works nights, and during a holiday at work, I decided I wanted to give it a go whilst I had some free time, to see what all the fuss was about. I tried again, and with a lot of help, managed to get to about level 10. The rest was history!

My first try was unsuccessful too. I rolled a warlock, got to level 4 and came across a quest mob next to a rare. I kept trying – over and over – to kill it. After an hour of wiping I couldn’t understand why I kept dying and quit. Uninstalled the game. The lot.

After a couple of weeks I decided to give it another go. Did a lot of reading, rolled a Tauren Hunter named Kwame. I deleted that at level 15 then started a Rogue. I’ve still got that rogue now πŸ™‚

20 Days of WoW – Day 2

Day 02 – Why you decided to start a blog

This is a tricky question as there wasn’t any particular thought behind the process other than we suddenly thought that it might be a good idea. We were on WoW at the time bickering about something we were doing when I realised that people would probably find this funny and/or interesting.

Women are also massively under-represented in WoW so it’s nice to be able to write from a female perspective, but also be able to bounce off Mr B. Playing together as a couple also poses its own challenges, which we thought might be good to write about.

I’d like to say there was more to it than a spontaneous idea, but there isn’t – sorry!

20 Days of Wow – Day 1

I have seen this on a few other blogs, so I thought we would join in the craze. I’m not disciplined to do it every day, but I thought it could be a fun regular feature.

So, let’s go.

Day 01 – Introduce yourself

I’m Mrs B. 25 years old and I live with Mr B in the UK. Not our location of choice, but we had to move to the big city for work from our lovely home town in the country. Not bitter at all πŸ˜‰ If I say much more about me, I will have nothing to talk about in a later post, so… that’s it for now!

I am new to World of Warcraft – I started playing after a couple of years getting really annoyed with Mr B as I couldn’t understand what he was talking about. Initially, he set me up with a character on a high populated server (Defias Brotherhood) so I could get a feel for the game. He told me to pick anything I liked – I chose Alliance (because the Horde were ugly); Gnome (because they’re small and cute); and Mage… well, because they’re cool. This is the only reason I ended up with this combination, as much as I’d like to say it was because of the Gnome racial buff. He helped me level through – talking me through the basics, helping me through the first few dunegons etc but generally just let me get on with it.

After levelling my Mage, I decided I want to heal. I love healing, but I don’t particularly like to quest so I levelled the Shaman through dungeons. I heal for the guild when we raid but that’s all. I decided I also wanted to have a high level hunter (for the pets, of course!) so I power levelled that and LOVED it. Unfortunately, I neither have the time nor the inclination to do dailies for gear on all 3 characters, so gearing up may take a while.

I’m Mr B, 28 years young and I’ve been playing WoW since Vanilla, on and off. I usually play 2 or 3 main characters: Sinnius (Worgen Priest), Sinate (Human DK) and Chaosin (Human Warlock). I have dabbled in all characters, classes and factions over the years but I think I’d have to pick Priest as my favourite. It’s hard to say exactly why but I like to heal, and I like to cast. I have had rogues and other melΓ©e characters, but utimately, I always find myself drifting back towards the casting classes.

Out of Horde and Alliance, I definitely prefer the Alli storyline, although there is some nostalgia for Horde as I started there all those years ago. I enjoy playing my Undead Mage a lot, but don’t dedicate that much time to it now, as I’m playing Alliance so much.
