Recess

Dear Friends, fellow gamers and fellow guild members,

I am temporarily on hiatus on playing the World of Warcraft. Due to some family activities, events and some recent changes with regards to my family's holiday plans, I am now down with tons of mixed chores, errands and stuff in preparation for the holidays with no helper. Other than that, I am under observation... not health related to clear things as early as now. It's too complicated to explain. Will make an announcement soon. 

Anyway, I heard that Cataclysm is now considered as the game of all time.
And it feels good that I was able to create a character at Level 80 before Cataclysm came out. With that, I was able to learn the stories that made up the World of Warcraft. Last time I logged -in was almost a month ago. Downloaded the newest patch, I was able to help during the invasion, and witnessed the world changing.

I got lost in Ogrimmar.
And what's this? Alliance took the Southern Barrens? Hmmm... can't wait to play again. First thing I'll do aside from leveling up to 85, is to explore the new world. This my friends is just a short break. I will be back with the highlights of my Cataclysm experience.

Arthas: Rise of The Lich King

 

 

 

 

 

I'm not here just to play the game. I'm here to know, understand and feel the heart of the Warcraft Universe.

Of Phishers and Hackers

Let me start by defining 2 words that is very rampant in the internet.

Phishing: is an illegal attempt to acquire information such as usernames, passwords and credit card details and other valuable information online.

Hackers: who performs the act of stealing bypassing a security system. 

Put these 2 together, it will only create 1 word: Losers!!! oh right let me add 2 more words: Desperate Wannabes!

Just recently, a Phishing attempt using my gmail account was detected by my computer's security. To be specific, Kaspersky Internet Security 2010. And when I was about to log-in this afternoon to purchase something from the Blizzard Store, I received a warning for several attempts made for logging-in. Obviously, somebody tried, and it wasn't a successful attempt. 

Hear this losers, you are not trying to outsmart me as a player, it's you putting Blizzard's Security System to a test. So, were you able to achieve your goals? As far as I'm concerned I'm still  able to log-in my accounts and thank God, I was able to change everything.

You may live and continue this act as unidentified individuals and that you're masters at getting away with it , but mind you, there's a Greater Being watching  over you. This may not yet be your time, but expect for the worse once you reach your limit.

Hallow's End

Trick or Treat! Hallow's End: an annual Halloween-inspired event which celebrated from October 18 - October 31, 2010. I just recently got an achievement for getting a tummy ache from eating too much candies and for killing the Headless Horseman. The towns of  Brill, Razor Hill, or Silvermoon City,  suffers as the Headless Horseman flies bringing terror and setting houses and buildings on fire. Talk to the Costumed Orphan Matron and learn how you can help put out the flames and get rid of the headless horseman. Find the Headless Horseman's  shrine located in the Scarlet Monastery graveyard. Summon and defeat him, and earn loots such as:  a broomstick mount, a pet, an epic armor  and  the Headless Horseman's mount!
  • Candy Buckets are located in inns throughout Kalimdor, Eastern Kingdoms, and The Outland. You will be able to find it by looking for  an exclamation mark inside every inn. Open by right-clicking it in your inventory. Each candy bucket will give experience, and for maximum level characters, gold.
  • The Wickerman Festival:  throwing stink bombs at the Alliance town and vice versa. Everyone is advised to sharpen their blades, tighten their girths, and prepare for battle!
Hallow’s End for more information.

To Become An Explorer

Simple, before the World of Warcraft changes on December 7, 2010, one of my goals which is in progress right now is to explore the beautiful, breathtaking view of the world itself. Discovering and exploring made me love W0W in an instant. 

Just a little story: I started playing The World of WarCraft to end a deal between me and my husband. To try it for a week was originally the plan. And again, just looking at the world, pulled the curious me. For me, it is the game for all time. I am overwhelmed with the world itself. Venturing to different quests, missions and simply just loving the fact that I am now seeing and playing the bigger and better version of WARCRAFT per se.

I'm running out of time, now that the old world is about to change... Take a  peek on what's going to happen next.

Left 4 Dead-- The Sacrifice Part1

Okay we just entered the first safe room, and my heart is still pounding. We had to go  through a horde of Zombies and the only passage towards the next side is blocked by a powerful Tank. 

Break!break!break! The rush? unexplainable! Woohoo!

Ninjaing

One of the first things I took note of while reading the World of WarCraft book was the article about Ninja Players. In the World of WarCraft, we players join raids, instances or dungeons in order to build up on the guild's play as a team and at the same time, to enhance each character on the team. From Armory, weaponry, making achievements and simply for the fun of it. Part of the whole process is to (NEED) if the player badly needs the weapon or armor being dropped within the whole game. (GREED) if the player doesn't need it, and for this matter, if it totally doesn't apply to his character. When on GREED, you give the player in NEED the chance to be able to get the weapon or armor being dropped.

Now, there are circumstances when a guild may lack team players, and will come to a point when another player must join from a different source, this is when Ninja Looters comes in. On my personal opinion, I would say that Ninja Looting is a form of stealing and cheating. 

As defined on W0WWiki: A ninja looter is a player who takes loot to which he or she is not entitled.

Some do this in order to get armory and weapons for their Alts or alternate, a secondary character. The rest loot for Gold- generating purposes. They sell whatever stuff they could get in an instance.

Early today,  I was victimized by a Ninja Looter who was a Healer we got outside the guild. At first, everything was going smoothly, but as we approach the last level, I noticed that he wasn't doing his job anymore. He wasn't healing our characters.  After which, a weapon was dropped, (which everyone else knows I NEED), this player clicked NEED for it, after getting it he left immediately. What a total jerk! 

Loots per se was never an issue or even considered as a  problem within our Guild, we practice courtesy and respect for each player. Ninja looters, with the attitude and unethical ways you're portraying, it only reflects the kind of person you are in real life. This may just be a mere game for you, but it can greatly show your true color. How hard is it to ask: "hey guys, can I NEED on this?" Our guild is not compose of dumb players and we're not selfish too.

Left 4 Dead-- The Sacrifice Prequel to The Passing

First thing you got to do is finish The Passing. It is based on the story of the 4 survivors from the first Left 4 Dead game. Namely, Zoey, Bill, Louis and Francis. The Sacrifice is set to come out as a game and will be  more exciting by giving players a chance to make their own ending.
The Sacrifice is available as a comic. From the L4D Blog, they presented the new line up for The Sacrifice release: For Left 4 Dead 2, gamers receive “The Sacrifice” campaign and L4D1’s “No Mercy” both playable with the L4D1 Survivors. This version also offers 5 new achievements. In the L4D2 version of “The Sacrifice” each campaign is playable in Campaign, Versus, Survival, and Scavenge modes, and both "The Sacrifice" and L4D2 version of No Mercy feature the Left 4 Dead 2 Special Infected, items, and weapons. Yes, Zoey with a chainsaw!-source-

Related to The Passing, I remember that the first batch of survivors were lacking Bill, the Vietnam Veteran. It  brought out so much curiosity on what happened to Bill. The Sacrifice will explain it all. Can't wait!

A Blue Proto Drake

I was told that this is a rare flying mount, with a drop chance of 1%-2%. I have it! Now I need 5000G to be able to ride it :D Anyone?
Source: Skadi the Ruthless in Utgarde Pinnacle
Requires: Level 70, Riding 300

In the World of WarCraft, players are given mounts, which we can ride to make exploring, questing or even raiding easier. And mounts are such great deal in this game. Some are hard to find (like this Blue Proto Drake), few players have it. And as a gamer who just turned level 80 a month ago, being able to acquire this Blue Proto Drake is quite an achievement. None from my guild who are experts have this mount.

Back On Enhancing My Profession

I started playing W0W in an extraordinary way. A player would probably begin following the line of quests, dungeons and maps that was set ahead in order to level up. Since I have a group who's been very helpful from the very beginning, I skipped a lot, and one of  the things I missed was to create a profession for my character. Profession is defined as something we do for a living. We can choose fishing, herbalism, cooking, alchemy, jewel crafting, tailoring, all that jazz. The purpose is almost the same with what we do in real life.  They say it's best to start your profession as you begin with day 1.

When I finally reached level 60 of Burning Crusades, I went back all the way where I started just to pick up on what I left with my profession, which is Alchemy- Herbalism and a second profession which is cooking. These 3 will greatly build up my character as I move along. Alchemy will grant me potions such as healing and mana, which are very useful for raids, battles and instances. Herbalism aids with Alchemy, because herbs are the main ingredients for the potions I create. As for cooking, I chose it because it is one of the things I love to do. But mind you, it also helps with my character's survival. The food I cook can be use as healing too.

 It took me 2 days to finally finish the first part of Herbalism 101.
My adventure took me to places I've never been to. It was fun exploring. I discovered a lot of places. Like for instance, The Hinterlands, I didn't know that this map was full of Boomkin-like creatures, and they have it in red. I find boomkins cute and cuddly :D

Mom Is Currently Playing The World of WarCraft

To begin, I want to share the latest online game that has been keeping in front of the computer lately. It is the only game that inspired me to put up an online journal all just for the excitement of  sharing my experiences online both high and low.  The World of WarCraft. 

I wasn't really a fan. Being a gamer, I did finished WarCraft III: The Reign Of Chaos to The Frozen Throne.  But back then,  I was just an ordinary gamer, I was never a die hard player. I play for the sake of entertainment and fun. It's not even a hobby. My love for the World of WarCraft started when my husband and I made an agreement. You see, I went slow on gaming when I became a mom. Eventually, my interest died down a bit. My husband was very eager to bring back that gaming flame in me. He had to bribe me first until I finally agreed to "at least" try it for about a week. If  the game(World of WarCraft) will not get me up and running again, maybe, it's just time to hold off the games for a while. And then I tried. But as expected, the World of WarCraft is "The Game" of all time. In an instant, I got hooked up, playing while in the middle of my chores and taking care of the family. All I wanted to do is to level up each day. I was lucky enough to be accompanied by friends who's been playing for years, which I consider experts in this world we're playing in.
The World of WarCraft is a multiplayer online role-playing game created by Blizzard Entertainment. A player is able to create a character, an avatar in third or first person view. Random objectives were made ready in order to help the player's avatar to level up. Maximum is Level 80 starting from W0W Vanilla, The Burning Crusades, and Wrath of The Lich King. Exploring the landscape, fighting various monsters, completing quests, and interacting with non-player characters (NPCs) or other players.-source-
Here's a little something on what's in store for you.


The world itself is stunning. There's so much to do, so much to explore, so much to discover and so much to share...
