   I've been putting some of gaming time into Skyrim lately when not in World of Warcraft with friends. My character is a Wood Elf Archer with a set of daggers for melee, but I rarely ever need those. Once again, as a repeat of Oblivion, it is looking like I am going to be doing everything there is to do other than the main quest.

Day 09 – Your first blog post

Well, This isn't my first blog. So the first post here isn't really ever first blog post. But I have since deleted my first blog, but if I remember correctly, it was very similar to this blogs first post minus the history update. It was just a quick summary of why I got into blogging( and what I'd mostly be blogging about.

Day 08 – 10 things we don’t know about you

This time around when I say it's simple, I mean i'm just gonna keep it simple. No over explanations here, just a quick little bullet pointed list.
  1. I love Guinness
  2. I have Mutton Chops
  3. I love Mongolian BBQ and Hot Wings, not really at the same time. Those are usually my go to meals.
  4. I am an awesome cook, the few times I ever decide to actually cook something. I usually just pick something up.
  5. My SONICS drink order is Strawberry Dr. Pepper.
  6. I'm a sucker for Collector's Editions. Especially ones with some rather obtrusive "art" piece that I don't even have a place to display.
  7.  My mains are always the Rogue type character and I tend to play with knives in videogames. All my Modern Warfare 3 classes have throwing knives. And when not using the bow in Skyrim, I'm dual daggers.
  8.  My Starbucks drink order is Hot Peppermint White Mocha.
  9.  My favorite color is Green
  10. Finally, my favorite hat style, the ones that are above my monitor, are Fedoras.

Day 07 – The reason behind your blog’s name

   This is another simple post. One that I have talked about in my introduction. But lets break this down anyways. So here you go, in an order which allows me to give background before explaining the whole thing.
But first, lets jump.

Day 06 – Your workplace/desk

    Alright... I'm gonna keep this one short as there's nothing special to write home about on this one. Its a small little four foot wide desk with my monster of a computer on the floor to the left of it. The monitor/keyboard/mouse sits on the left hand side of the desk and the right side is packed with DVD's, Books and random stuff. The junk on the right is strategic so my cat doesn't have anywhere to lay down because otherwise he'd be pushing on my mouse hand making my gaming difficult.

    Now the best part of this workplace is what is above my monitor on a little shelf. At least half a dozen of my hats. Awesome hats they are too. But no I am not saying anything more about that. I can use that info on another 20 Day of Blogging post. That's it folks, nothing to see here. Y'all don't have to go home, but ya can't stay here.

Oh Alliance, how sly you are.

    I wasn't really planning on posting so much about World of Warcraft at this time. But it just so happened that I started blogging at the same time my group of friends got back into doing things together in the game. Currently leveling our lowbies through dungeons, and just about only dungeons thanks to Blizzard finally throwing the quest givers into the Burning Crusade and Wrath instances. Anyways, I was working on my lowbie Mages herbalism in Hillsbrad Hills and look what I found.

Day 05 – Favorite item(s) in game

   When I first thought about this I was thinking "Oh hey, this is going to be a short and quick post". See, at first thought I didn't think I really had much of a favorite item in the game outside of the Red Rocket, technically named [X-51 Nether-Rocket X-TREME]. This was my first awesome rare loot card from the World of Warcraft Trading Card Game, back in the first set when I actually cared about trying to play the game. And hardly anyone ever saw it so it was definitely a conversation piece.

Area Looting. This is the BEST THING EVAR!

Its not new, and no it wasn't introduced in Star Wars The Old Republic. But because of the hype and huge draw of the game it is where a lot of people first encounter area looting. No matter where you first started area looting there is one thing in common with everyone. It's so very hard to go back to individual loot systems.

I have started playing World of Warcraft again just because our little tight knit group has been missing the social aspects of it. But it is just so painful to loot in that game. Not just for the lack of area loot, but the loot distance. Star Wars while not perfect, as somehow everyone expected it to be... <offtopicburstrage> IT'S A NEW GAME FOLKS, GIVE IT THE TIME IT DESERVES TO BE POLISHED, WORLD OF WARCRAFT HAD ITS FLAWS IN THE BEGINNING TOO YA KNOW.</offtopicrant> ... managed to get a few things such as the area loot and loot distance being higher so you don't need to be right on top of the corpse.

Anyways, it's a big deal. So big a deal it's got a video post on MMO-Champion. Check it out.

Day 04 – Your Best World of Warcraft Memory

As anyone who has put so much time into a game would know, there are just too many awesome moments and memories it's difficult to just say there is one that is best. For me there has to be maybe two memories that could share as my best memory. Both of them actually in Loch Modan.

The first was when I first rolled my Rogue as a Dwarf. I was out questing in Loch Modan with my buddy. At some point we got split up, if I recall I went to go vendor some junk and I was so excited to get several silver for the Linen Cloth I didn't care to use. Then on my way to meet back up with my buddy, This Paladin came riding up on his Horse and I was in awe. He says to me he rarely ever sees a Dwarf Rogue, then just gave me 2 gold and rode off in the horizon. I was so excited about it I quickly told my buddy and even give him half of it. It's not only that we were new and 2 gold meant a lot because we had none. But this was in a time when you would be considered well off even if you only had 20 gold.

My second memory is after both my buddy and myself had decided to start new characters. His Dwarf Hunter and my Night Elf Rogue, with whom I trekked all the way from Darnassus through the hellacious Wetlands to get to Loch Modan and level with my buddy. We picked up a friendly Priest and worked our way through the zone, eventually getting to Stonewrought Dam. We were having such a blast that when we got to the Dam, we all peered down, and I said to everyone "Let's jump!". And on a count of 3 we all jumped, I had used Sprint though and cleared out to the water, sadly the Hunter and Priest did not. Throughout the leveling process I had grouped up with the priest as we had a made our first friend with a stranger on World of Warcraft only losing touch when we Transferred Realms. But that day also marked the beginning of a trend that involves me constantly jumping and falling to my doom in World of Warcraft.

Day 03 – Your first day playing World of Warcraft

    I did not get into World of Warcraft right away. I remember it coming out, and thinking yeah I might try that game, but never did. My friends talked about trying it, but never did. Then one Wednesday night, a particular episode of South Park aired and it was enough.

Day 02 – Why you decided to start a blog

Why else would anyone decide to start a blog? To express oneself. My first blog was a place where I can share my achievements and thoughts on a game I loved to play all the time, World of Warcraft. I've vented my frustrations with the game and i've recapped my accomplishments. This blog is going to be the same, only spread through out all the games I love to play, and most likely venting on how I can't get to them all. In short, it is a place where I can share my interests at the time and any moments that go with them, even if the interest is short lived due to another game or some other distractions. ::cough::Netflix::cough::

Assassin's Creed 3

Weeks old, I know. But seriously, this series is awesome. And the multiplayer is a great change from your FPS run and gun fragfests.

Day 01 – Introduce yourself

What can I say that wasn't already said here.

Mists of Pandaria

Last weekend there was a Press Event for the new World of Warcraft expansion expected this year. Well the NDA has been lifted, so head on over to check out the details.
WoW Insider  MMO-Champion
The biggest news coming out of this is...

20 Days of Blogging.

What can I say. This is going around the World of Warcraft blogosphere and as a formerly WoW exclusive blogger. It was actually this meme that inspired me to come back to blogging. I thought it was, at the very least, an interesting way to provide inspiration and get me back in the habit. So starting Monday afternoon when I get a better chance to work on it we will see this started.

Starting Anew

    Here I am, once again attempting to throwing my hat in the blogging arena. I was once here before, actually twice. My first to attempts were as an exclusively World of Warcraft blogger, or at least that was my intention. My first run went pretty well and lasted for over a year consisting of posts regarding my World of Warcraft Achievement hunting on my Rogue Occeleta, my altaholic ways and other random World of Warcraft nonsense.
