Do you still have the honeymoon feeling with Mist of Panderia? In episode 1 you were loving the game, was that the peak of the new smell of the xpax? What is your opinion of the xpac 6-9 months into the game.
How is the Warcraft Trading Card game going?
Are pet battles still a time sink? (Episode 1)

#TWoWoW Week 9 – Horde or Alliance?
FOR THE HORDE!
FOR THE HORDE!
G’day Molster and Slainto!
While most of the time I enjoy the comfort and safety of PvE realms for questing, there is a certain thrill and excitement that I sometimes miss from my days on PvP realms. I know I could flag myself as pvp, but it’s not quite the same and doesn’t produce the same effect. Alot of good times have been had in reaction to guildies getting ganked – the escalating responses from both sides can be a ton of fun. While the same thing can be done in a more organised fashion as seen in Nagrand’s Halaa, it’s not quite as epic.
So strangely, I mostly prefer and play PvE, but find myself arguing the benefits of PvP. Go figure.
It’s scientifically proven that taller people are far superior to their height-challenged cousins.
A recent study found the IQ of alliance players to be a full 3 feet lower than their Horde counterparts.
Lastly, when it comes to the crunch, alliance players tend to pull up short.
For the Horde!
ps I do love short bread cookies though.

Fell behind again of course, so here are my week 7 and week 8 responses!
Week 7: Favorite Piece of Lore
My favorite piece of lore has to be the introduction to Culling of Stratholme. I think this is a turning point for Arthas’s character from thinking and feeling the evil brewing inside him to bringing it to fruition. Seeing the change in dynamic where Jana Proudmoor essentially abandons Arthas to his whims introduces a whole new element to the relationships within the alliance.
Week 8: PVP, PVE, RP
I grew up on Eredar, I dont mind PVP, i just hate senseless ganking. Nothing is more infuriating than trying to level your toon with a max level jerk camping you for an hour(or 4). I moved away from Eredar because it was just killing my enjoyment of the game. BG’s are OK, but can get a bit static and boring after a while. My true love is lore, questing, and raiding. I would rather spend 10 hours in queue for a raid than actively doing BGa. As far as RP goes, as a person who frequents Ren Faires, I love me some RP, but its more for fun than anything else, and I dont think I could live on an RP server. (Although I’ve been thinking about making some Horde on Earthen Ring)
I’m bi. Bi-factional that is. I have ally and horde toons but most of my friends play horde. Also, ding’d 11 on my ret pally Kinkerbell in the Bitter and Salty guild

I had a really hard time trying to think about my favorite lore in Warcraft, but what I started noticing was that I kept going back to different stories surrounding the Forsaken. So I guess my favorite lore is all the lore surrounding the Forsaken. How they broke away from the Scourge. How they have made a home where they once lived when alive, and you find them referencing their old lives from time to time in quests. How the Light pains them terribly, so any Forsaken priest feels pain when casting holy magic, or any Forsaken warrior is basically having their wounds cauterized during battle. The whole thing with Lillian Voss being a member of the Scarlet Crusade in life, hunting undead, and then becoming one and being hunted by the people she called friends and family herself. All that stuff I find really thought provoking and interesting.
As far as servers, I can’t stand the idea of trying to level while getting ganked. To me that would make the game unplayable. I am a PvE player all the way. I don’t RP, but to me an RP server is interchangeable with a PvE server. So I’m on an RP server, but I pretty much just shrug my shoulders about what that really means.
Horde or Alliance? I’m a life-long Horde player, and will likely stay that way. I wouldn’t mind seeing the quests on the Alliance side, but my time to play makes that unlikely, and I’m fine with that. I will say that I haven’t liked where the Horde has gone under Garrosh, but I’m stoked to knock him off the throne and see where the Horde goes from there.
