Alt-a-holic: Revenge of the Alts, Part 2!

Zelodie, Tauren Paladin

Meet Zelodie, the Tauren Paladin, on Bolderfist. Proud Member of Blood Of The Scribe.

She is my first 110 horde toon for the legion expansion.

Did I happen to mention that she is a boosted toon? No. Well, she is boosted. I am also very nervous to say that I am going to be tanking with her. That should be interesting because I have not had a max level Paladin since Cataclysm.

For now, what I would like to do with her is to complete the Surmar quest chain to unlock the allied races, then to attempt mythic 5 man dungeons. Nothing more then 5’s. I am more wanting to get my feet wet and see if I feel confident enough to continue tanking or if I should give the DPS spec a go.

Thank you for reading the post! If you would like to talk about your alts, battle pets, Warcraft in general, or any other topic please feel free to drop in to the blogs discord!


The Quickening: Skillet

skilletSkillet has been in my regular listen rotation for a while. A long while.

The band started in 1996, and I have been listening to them since 2007. Right as Comatose, their seventh full-length album was gaining traction. I know they are touring supporting their most recent album entitled Unleashed, but I have been hooked to their Awake & Remixed EP.

I was listening to the Spotify service and the pre-made “Your Daily Mix” playlist they put together and this song popped up. Its actually a very haunting version and it forced me to listen considering how different it is from the original song.

Hope you enjoyed the music today. Also do not forget, if you would like to talk about music with other readers of the blog please feel free to join the discord server!

Favorite Legion Quest!

I would like to take a moment to thank the fantastic people at the Z & Cinder’s blog! They are absolutely great! Keep up the great work! I will link to their topic’s available if you would like to participate in the challenge is as follows: Z & Cinder’s blog!

Topic 1: Favourite Legion quest: What is your favorite quest or quest chain so far in Legion?

kobold-high-mtn.jpgBesides the poop quest that makes an appearance in every expansion, this is a hard question. There are so many of them! My favorite is the quest in High Mountain where you train the little gnome girl by the name of Addie Fizzlebog to hunt. She asks “should we take a selfie” while we’re hunting. Cracked me up. The other set of quest that was absolutely hilarious was the kobold quest chain, also in High Mountain. The chain also contains a quest that you play as the quest giver.

Topic 10: Favourite World Quest: What’s your favorite World Quest in Legion so far and why?

squirrl.jpgMy favorite world quest is in Val’sharah. Awe, Nuts! It’s short and to the point – and has a pretty funny joke when upon completion!
